Leetsdale parade to detour Port Authority

Leetsdale’s Fourth of July parade will detour Port Authority’s 14 bus that runs along Beaver Street. The transit agency has posted details on its website.

'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.
