'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.

Candidates for local and state offices will be available to discuss their campaigns and current community issues in Ross Township next week.

Ross residents can meet candidates at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Sieb's Banquet Facility, 3382 Babcock Boulevard in Ross Township.

The event will be hosted by the Ross Township Democratic Committee.

The Ross Township Democratic Committee also is seeking individuals interested in filling positions as Democratic committeepersons.

Petitions for positions as a committeepersons require 10 valid signatures and can be notarized at the March 4 Meet the Candidates Night.

Committeepersons work to get candidates elected by canvassing neighborhoods, working the polls, attending committee meetings and make endorsements.

All 72 Democratic committeeperson seats are up for re-election this year, committee secretary Sabrina Korbel, 37, of Ross said.

Each of Ross' nine wards has four districts. Each district has a male and female committeeperson.

Fifty of the seats are filled, and 22 currently are vacant.

All seats are up for election in the May 20 primary. Each committeeperson is elected to a four-year term.

For more information or to obtain a petition, call Franny Salachup, committee chairwoman at 412-366-9746.
