'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.

Unity Township Supervisor Mike O'Barto said that since the start of the township's annual Heritage Festival, he has enjoyed teaching new residents the history of the area, while longtime residents reminisce about places and time gone by.

“We want families to come out and enjoy themselves,” he said.

The festival, from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday at the township municipal building on Beatty County Road, offers displays of historical memorabilia and Unity's eight fire companies.

O'Barto said he has seen neighbors greeting neighbors, some of whom recognize themselves in the old photographs.
