'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.

South Buffalo's McVille Airport is among 20 airports across the state slated to receive funding through PennDOT's aviation development program for upgrading facilities.

McVille Airport has been allocated $200,000 to construct a hangar.

“Providing transportation options is vital to moving goods and people,” Gov. Tom Corbett said in a release on Monday.

“That's why we've invested $50 million in aviation since January 2011.”

The privately owned airport, along Ford City Road, last year received $93,750 from the fund for snow removal equipment.
