'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.

Aspinwall officials approved a liquor-license transfer for a proposed Italian restaurant on Brilliant Avenue.

The license would transfer from Franco's Restaurant in Harmar Township to the site of the former Luma Restaurant at 6 Brilliant Ave.

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board also must approve the transfer before alcohol could be sold at the location.

TreeVitalize

Aspinwall's Shade Tree Commission hopes to receive another round of trees from the TreeVitalize grant program.

Councilwoman Ann Pawlikowski said this year's application seeks money to plant trees along Freeport Road that would replace those removed last year because they were infested by the emerald ash borer. Trees would also be planted in Aspinwall Riverfront Park and near the ball fields.

The borough has received trees the last two years through the program.

Next meeting

The next council meeting is scheduled for April 2 at 7 p.m. at the borough building on Commercial Avenue.
