'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Blawnox Council approved $6,258 worth of payments for the borough-building renovation project.

McRandal Co. received $2,481 and Merrit Electric Group received $3,777.

The companies completed heating and electrical work, respectively, on the project.

Borough manager Sherry Kordas said a few small issues remain, but the companies can be paid.

The payments were contingent on those items being completed.

The borough building project included an expanded police station and an elevator that can take people to the second floor of the building, where meetings are held.

Memorial Day

Blawnox officials plan to begin organizing the borough's annual Memorial Day celebration.

Memorial Day is May 27.

The borough regularly holds a parade and program in town on that day.

Next meeting

The next regular council meeting for Blawnox will be March 28.

The 6:30 p.m. meeting will be held at the borough building on Freeport Road.
