'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 Fayette County Fair's annual Senior Citizen Day will be held July 31.

The event will begin at 1 p.m. in the Fiddlers' Building, Fayette County fairgrounds, Dunbar Township. Registration begins at noon.

Participants must be at least 55 years of age and be present and registered prior to the start of the contests. Trophies and ribbons will be awarded. Categories include: largest group attending, newest married couple, spelling bee, cake walk, youngest grandchild, best female legs, scavenger hunt, most senior man, most senior woman, cookie stack, sexiest male legs and money guess.

Other highlights of the afternoon will be the crowning of a king and queen. The Dan and Galla Musical Show will provide entertainment followed by an ice cream “social.” Activities will conclude by 3 p.m.

Admission to the fair is free for those age 62 and older until 2 p.m. — you must show identification. Senior Citizen admission does not include carnival and outdoor arena; upgrades are available at the fair office. A free shuttle will be available to and from the parking lots and throughout the grounds.
