'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.

Downtown Connellsville is sponsoring a citywide cleanup.

The cleanup will be held starting at 9 a.m. May 18 and continue until 5 p.m.

The local event has been named “Connellsville Cares.”

It is being sponsored in conjunction with the Great American Clean-Up and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, which are ongoing efforts.

“The date was chosen because it is one week before the garden club's annual Geranium Festival, and we would like to present our city at its best when we'll be having so many people in town. We hope that through the volunteer efforts on May 18 both residents and out-of-town visitors attending the Geranium Festival will be greeted not only with a wonderful event, but also a city that shines,” said Michael Edwards, president of Fayette County Cultural Trust. Downtown Connellsville is a program of FCCT.

Volunteers are asked to register early by calling ArtWorks at 724-320-6392.

Four groups will then be formed to concentrate on picking up litter in four areas — Pittsburgh Street, Crawford Avenue, East Park and along the Great Allegheny Passage.

PennDOT will supply the gloves, trash bags, reflective vests, posters, signs and coloring books and crayons for youth.

Downtown Connellsville will provide water and light snacks.

The initial gathering starts in front of Artworks, located at 139 W. Crawford Ave. Teams will move out from there to the designated areas.
