'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.

Trafford Manager Jeff McLaughlin and Councilwoman Vicki Megon have decided to move on.

Council accepted both officials' resignations on Tuesday night.

McLaughlin, who had been on the job since March 2013, will be replaced on a part-time basis by Virginia Finnegan, who has been serving as the interim Harmony Township manager.

Councilman John Daykon said Finnegan, who lives in Monroeville, is expected to start in mid-July.

Meanwhile, Megon, who joined council in 2010, tearfully offered her resignation. Though she credited council members for making “great strides in this town over the past five or six years,” Megon said she thought the borough was lacking in other areas, like being able to retain volunteers.

“At this time, I do not feel we are striving for the same things,” she said.

Megon said she would continue to be involved in planning the borough's Holiday Happenings event.

Council set a July 18 deadline for residents who want to submit letters describing their interest in the seat.
