'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.

Keeping with tradition, Whitehall Council members have once again rotated their leadership positions for 2013.

Council members each year take turns serving in the roles of president and vice president, as well as the leaders of each committee, in an effort to give everyone on the board an opportunity to experience each aspect of the borough, they said.

Council Vice President Glenn Nagy, who has served on the board since 1997, was elected president by his colleagues in a unanimous vote on Jan. 2. Nagy takes over the presidency from Councilman Bill Veith, who served as president in 2012.

Nagy has served as president of the board three times during his tenure on Whitehall council.

Council members, also in a unanimous vote, elected Harold Berkoben as vice president. He has served on council since 2000 and has been president of the board twice. This will be his third time serving in the vice president role.

Prior to Nagy's election, Veith resigned his post as president.

“It really was my honor to serve,” he said, noting the help his colleagues gave in assisting him in the role. “I look forward to serving as a committee member.”

Council members also were appointed to serve on various borough committees for 2013. Robert McKown will chair the administrative services committee; Veith, public safety; Berkoben, public works; Phil Lahr, planning and zoning; Linda Book, library committee; and Kathy DePuy, recreation.
