'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.

Pitcairn is a small town with a big heart.

Our town offers its youths the opportunity to play football, baseball, and softball; enjoy a movie for free; have fun at the summer recreation program; march in the Halloween parade and participate in the Harvest Festival; visit with Santa; hunt for Easter eggs and have lunch with the Easter Bunny; and attend a week of summer camp.

Thank you, Camp B and Camp G, Mohawk Football, Pitcairn Baseball/Softball Association and the Parks and Recreation Committee, for supporting our kids.

We have programs for those who need food and clothing, and service organizations that lend a hand when needed.

Thank you to the members of the Clothes Closet, Community Renaissance, Eastern Star, food pantry, Girl Scouts, Lions Club, Meals-on-Wheels, Neighborhood Watch, Rainbow Girls and Woman's Club.

Thank you to the historical society and Pitcairn High School Alumni for keeping our history alive.

Thank you to the members of our fire companies and the ambulance crews and to our elected officials.

Thank you to Propel School for believing in Pitcairn, to our clergy and, of course, to our businesses.

Thank you to everyone who plays a part in making our town a community.

Let's continue to support our community events, organizations, employees and volunteers in 2014.


The Pitcairn Rainbow Girls Assembly No. 90 is having a spaghetti-dinner fundraiser Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Park Building.

The meal will include spaghetti, meatballs, salad, bread, dessert and a beverage. The cost is $6 for adults and $4 for children 12 and younger. Take-out will be available.

Any girl between ages 6 and 21 who joins the organization on Sunday will receive a free dinner.

Proceeds from the dinner benefit the Pitcairn Assembly's community projects.


Members of the Pitcairn Woman's Club are reminded that there are no meetings in January.
