'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.

The Aspinwall Planning Commission has recommended a proposed bed and breakfast ordinance for the borough.

Borough manager Melissa Lang said officials will begin discussion on whether to grant final approval to the proposal in June. The ordinance would allow bed and breakfasts as a conditional use in the borough's zoning district that stretches from Western to Brilliant avenues.

Karen Connor has expressed interest in buying a property at 111 Brilliant Ave. and turning it into a bed and breakfast.

PNC Bank building

Aspinwall officials granted a conditional use for parking at the former PNC Bank building on Brilliant Avenue.

The building is now owned by James Mitnick, who plans to move the office for his company, Ironwood Learning LLC, to the new location. The approval calls for parking spaces for his company to remain in leased spaces near the railroad tracks off of Freeport Road.

Mitnick said he has discussed with the borough planning commission to require any retail businesses that move into the first floor of the building to also have off street parking leased as part of the lease.
