'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.

Brian Woy is the new council president in Manor.

Council last week voted 5-0, with Christine Marchand absent, to promote Woy, 33, from the vice presidency.

Woy, a general manager at landscape retailer Kingston Supply and a volunteer fire captain, succeeds Chuck Konkus, who resigned last month because he moved to Penn Township.

Woy joined council in September 2010 as the replacement for Joe Lapia, who was hired as borough manager. He was elected to a four-year term in November 2011.

After Woy's ascension, council made its newest member, James Morgan, the new vice president. Woy, Morgan and Bruce Hartman voted for Morgan, while Dawn Lynn and Jeff Herman supported Lynn for the role.

Council appointed Morgan, 47, in July to replace Anthony Marciano. He is one of three candidates who filed nominating petitions to run for the four council seats on the ballot this year.

Council is expected to appoint someone to serve the remaining eight months of Konkus' term at the April 17 public meeting.

No street sweeping

Council opted against sweeping the streets this spring, which leaves the $2,200 that had been budgeted available for other road projects.

Lapia said the borough typically swept the streets in past years to prevent rock salt and other debris from winter from getting into the storm sewers. The borough rented a street sweeper last year for one week.

Woy and Herman said they didn't think sweeping the streets was necessary this year.

Fee waived

Council voted 3-2 to waive the 2013 T-ball fees for any recreation board members whose children play. For this year, the $40-per-child fee affects only one board member.

Hartman, a rec board member, requested the waiver. He said it's the only benefit the volunteer members get for their service. Woy and Morgan joined Hartman in voting for the waiver, while Lynn and Herman voted against it.
