'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.

After finishing the sweeping and cleaning of the East Huntingdon township roads from the winter salt and antiskid debris, the supervisors are looking to summer and the road work and roadside cleaning that they are now planning to complete.

“We have some patching to do and we are cleaning ditches and cleaning pipes,” Supervisor Joel Suter said. “We're getting ready.” Supervisor Howard Keefer said that most of the township trucks are now ready for summer work.

“We still have a few that are winter-ready, but we are in the process of getting them done,” Keefer said of the trucks.

The supervisors also reported they will soon be traveling the township roads to see which ones are in need of oil and chipping.

“We're going to start to get the roads ready for oil and chipping,” Keefer said. “We'll go out and do a visual check. We have an idea which ones may need it, but we won't know for sure until we go out.”

The supervisors performed one landfill inspection in the last two weeks and received no odor complaints.

The supervisors passed a motion to approve the modification or contraction contracts to David and Kim Lewandowski to erect a 2,000-square foot single dwelling house and also to Gregory Bauer to erect a 32-by-40 foot pole building.

The annual permit was also granted to the Sunnydale Mobile Home Park.
