'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.

Fairfield Township supervisors approved a motion at the September meeting to use money from the general fund to cover any possible shortfall in the state's aid to municipalities for the Minimal Municipal Obligation, the township's retirement pension plan, for 2013. President Vaughn Tantlinger proposed the possibility of extending the water line across Route 271 so residents living along Ross Mountain Park Road could be included.

Tantlinger said he discussed the extension with The Engineering, Architecture and Design Services Engineer Ben Faas and was told the extension would be addressed next year.

In other business:

• Supervisors approved a $50 donation to Cub Scout Pack 1123.

• A plan was approved for a sewage module for the Samuel and Yvette Saxton Jr. subdivision.
