'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.

Upper Tyrone Township supervisors are hoping to have the vacant auditor position filled soon.

On Tuesday, supervisors passed a motion to petition the court to appoint an auditor for the remainder of 2013.

According to the township ordinance, if the township supervisors or a township vacancy board fails to appoint an individual within 30 days, the position must be filled by the courts.

Supervisor Bill Edwards said only Dan Friend showed interest in the position.

He said that while it's not a sure thing that Friend will be tapped to fill the position, supervisors are hoping to recommend him to the courts.

In other business, spring clean-up days have been set for May 10 through May 18. The hours will be posted, along with items that are restricted.

Some of those restrictions will include paint cans, appliances with Freon, electronics that include televisions and computers and tires.

Edwards said that with the help of some high school students, the township will be partnering with Clean Ways to clean up two sites along Broadford Road.

Edwards said some progress is being made regarding a sewage project that the township sewage authority has been trying to get under way for a few years, but “it's going to be quite awhile” before they get to the point of any kind of construction or line installation.
