'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.

North Huntington commissioners unanimously approved a request by the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County to build a 1.5-million gallon water-storage tank at the end of Virginia Avenue in the Ardara section. Authority officials need to install the new $1.2 million tank before work can begin to refurbish the existing 5-million gallon storage tank on the site, which will cost about $500,000. Work is expected to begin in late summer and be completed in the spring.
