'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.

A late Thanksgiving means an early Christmas for Aspinwall.

The Aspinwall Chamber of Commerce will sponsor Holiday Celebrations in Aspinwall on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 2 to 6 p.m.

Activities will be held throughout the borough. This is the first year the chamber of commerce has taken the lead in organizing the annual celebration.

Usually, the event is held the Thursday before Thanksgiving but with the holiday falling later in the month this year, organizers decided to move the date up, said Gina Musser, president of the Chamber of Commerce.

“Everybody wanted to start the holiday season a little early,” she said.

The event also was pushed to Saturday in an effort to make it more family friendly.

Musser said she hopes the weekend schedule and earlier start time will encourage people to stay in the community for dinner, shopping and visiting neighbors.

“That's what our intent was, that it would be a whole day,” Musser said.

Among the activities are horse-drawn hayrides, vendors, ice carvings, a living nativity, pictures with Santa and music.

Aspinwall police officer David Nemec will have donation boxes set up for his annual “Presents from Police” program at the borough building on Commercial Avenue, Beans and Cream on Brilliant Avenue and other locations. The program donates toys to children at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC with the help of local police departments.

A fireworks display by Zambelli Fireworks Internationale in New Castle will start at 6 p.m.

People can watch the fireworks from the municipal parking lot between Freeport Road and Commercial Avenue.
