'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 has a full council again.

Greg Domian and Anthony Karpinski Jr. were appointed to borough council last week.

The two will take seats vacated by Renee Procopio and Lou DeLuca, both of whom resigned in January.

Procopio left for personal reasons, and DeLuca took a job as code enforcement officer with the borough.

Domian said he is excited to serve his hometown. He previously served on the borough's civil service commission.

“I'm going to fill this position to the best of my ability and give 110 percent and do what I can to work as a team here,” Domian said.

Domian will lead the borough's personnel committee, a position previously held by current council President Karen Pastor.

Karpinski will lead the zoning, planning and code committee, DeLuca's former position.

He said he thinks Sharpsburg has a good council now and is excited to give something back to his community.

“I will perform my duties to the best of abilities,” Karpinski said.

Borough officials also appointed several people to commissions.

Joseph Bruno was sworn in as a member of the planning commission.

DeLuca, Brittany Reno and Andrew Sabo were sworn in as members of the Shade Tree Commission. That commission is a newly formed multi-municipal group with representatives from Blawnox, Etna and Sharpsburg.
