'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 officials continue to move closer to developing an ordinance relating to trees in the borough.

With regulations in place, the borough would be able to receive trees through the TreeVitalize program from the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.

Councilman Lou DeLuca said representatives from the borough already have taken tree tender classes needed for the program. He said efforts are under way to beautify the community.

“We're attempting to green Sharpsburg,” DeLuca said.

As they finalize the ordinance, officials plan to reach out to Aspinwall's Shade Tree Commission for information about how that borough manages trees.

Hoffman Kennels

Sharpsburg renewed its contract with Hoffman Kennels for animal control services for $200 per month.

The contract includes answering and responding to calls and patrolling streets for at least three days per week.
