'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.

Butler County Community College's board on Wednesday approved a $26.7 million budget for 2014-15 that includes a small tuition increase.

Tuition will be $96 per credit hour as of July 1 for in-county students, a $3 increase; $192 for out-of-county students, a $6 increase; and $288 per credit hour for out-of-state students, a $9 increase.

The school enrolls about 5,400 students at campuses in Butler Township, Cranberry Hermitage, New Castle and Brockway.

BC3 spokeswoman Susan Changnon said the budget contains no layoffs and increases salaries. By “managing things ... we were able to come in at 2.4 percent less,” she said.
