'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.

Improvements are planned for ACMH Hospital's emergency room — to be paid for in part with a more than $1 million state grant — though few details were available on Thursday.

The hospital was awarded a $1.5 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant from the state for the improvements, said Rich Palilla, executive director of the county's planning and development office. He made the announcement during the Armstrong County Commissioners' meeting on Thursday.

Palilla noted that the money would need to go through the county before being distributed to the hospital.

“The county is, in essence, a pass-through,” he said. He requested that the commissioners approve an agreement between the county and the hospital.

Commissioners Robert Bower, Richard Fink and David Battaglia voted 3-0 in favor of the agreement.

The grant is of the same kind as one funding the Belmont Complex project, Palilla said after the meeting. He said the grant is distributed on a reimbursement basis and must have matching investment from the hospital.

Palilla referred a reporter to the hospital for information on the project. An ACMH spokesperson said Thursday that details would be coming soon.
