'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.

A proposed sheriff's sale of an undeveloped section of the Woods of Brandywine housing plan in Manor has been postponed until April 1.

AmeriServ Financial Bank has a foreclosure case against Jana Development, which had plans to build on the 26 acres in the plan.

Last month, Westmoreland County Judge Richard McCormick Jr. increased the default judgment for the property from $543,991 to $724,866.

The bulk of the increase is for the addition of the $174,000 in sequestered funds that Manor Borough may draw from a bank account to complete infrastructure in that section of the housing plan. Manor officials have said that Jana was in default of a developer's agreement.

The owner of Harrison City-based Patriot Homes USA has told the Manor Planning Commission that he is interested in buying the property to build homes that would cost between $275,000 and $325,000.
