'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.

Edgeworth and Leet Township are among several communities to receive recycling grant funding from the state.

The grants were awarded as part of the state's Recycling Performance Grant Program and provide incentives to help Pennsylvania communities increase recycling and to promote economic growth through job creation and market expansion.

The amount of each grant is based on the municipalities' population and the amount they recycled in 2012.

Edgeworth Borough will receive $1,632 based on 160.5 tons recycled, state Sen. Matt Smith said.

“State dollars not only offer an incentive for communities to increase the amount of materials recycled in their community, they also create jobs and reduce the amount of waste to regional landfills,” Smith said in a news release.

Leet Township will receive $331 based on 58.3 tons of recycled material, state Rep. Rob Matzie said.

Aliquippa, Ambridge, Economy and Findlay are among other local municipalities to receive grant funding.
