'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.

The committee for the Vietnam / Korea War Memorial to be erected in Dawson is currently putting together a dedication book to be sold to help raise funds to pay for the new memorial. It is hoped area businesses and supporters will help put together a fantastic dedication booklet to accompany a celebration of the monument's installation, which will be held on Aug. 31. Advertising space is being sold at this time by members of the committee. Ads are available for sponsor or memorial lines to 14-, 12- and full-page ads. Information about the program book is available from any committee member or by calling 724-529-7298 or 724-529-2368. Donations are still being accepted to help finish this project.

If you have an item for this column, give me a call at 724-529-7927 or email at or drop me a line at 276 Banning Road, Dawson, PA 15428 by 7 p.m. Tuesday so I may prepare my column for the following week.

Until next time, friends, have a fantastic week.
