'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.

Classes in the Plum Borough School District are expected to resume on Thursday, Superintendent Timothy Glasspool said Wednesday afternoon.

Classes were canceled on Tuesday and Wednesday due to the extreme cold temperatures. Also, twenty of the district's 54 buses would not start on Wednesday morning, Glasspool said.

“If they (buses) weren't enclosed or plugged in, they weren't starting today,” Glasspool said.

The superintendent said as of Wednesday afternoon, all the buses in the fleet are operating.

“We will have mechanics in early tomorrow,” Glasspool said. “I don't anticipate a delay or cancelation.”

The district has scheduled Feb. 17 and April 16 as the make-up days for the cancelation of classes on Tuesday and today (Jan. 8), according to the district website.

The wrestling match scheduled for 7 p.m. today (Jan. 8) at home and the boys and girls basketball games scheduled for 7:30 p.m. today are set to proceed as scheduled, Glasspool said.
