'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.

Phase one of the Brentwood Park renovations will begin after the July 4th celebrations.

The construction work includes basketball courts, baseball fields and a dek hockey rink, council members said on Tuesday night.

The new picnic tables and umbrellas are now up on the civic center porch.

Officials are financing an estimated $8 million renovation of the park off of Brownsville Road.

In other business:

• Volunteers are needed for the Fourth of July celebration to stuff packets and fold T-shirts.

Participants can go to the library community room on Friday at 10 a.m. and noon to 8 p.m. or Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

Organizers also are looking for World War II veterans to ride in the parade, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. on July 4 on Brownsville Road.

Those interested can call Dave Buechel at 412-310-744.

• Central Blood Bank will host a blood drive on Friday in the Brentwood Library community room from noon to 6 p.m.

All donors will receive two Pirates tickets in the mail.

Appointments can be made at www.centralbloodbank.org.
