'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.

Sharpsburg residents can play a role in naming the 13th Street boat ramp.

Suggestions will be collected at the annual Guyasuta Days Festival this summer.

Council then will decide the winner.

A prize will be awarded to the winning suggestion.

Library

Sharpsburg is planning a fundraiser for the Sharpsburg Community Library on July 14 at the LeMont in Mt. Washington.

The event will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Details still are being finalized.

Officials are hoping for support from residents and local businesses.

Other fundraisers for the library, which is planning an expansion, will be held later in the year.

Donation

The Guyasuta Days Festival committee has made a $2,000 donation to the borough.

The money will be used for upkeep at Kennedy Park in Sharpsburg, which is the site for the annual event.

The festival committee donates money to various organizations each year.
