'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.

South Connellsville will hold the Fourth Annual Car and Bike Show 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Scott C's Auto Sales sponsors the show.

A craft show is also a part of the day and many vendors will be there.

South Pittsburgh Street will be closed in front of the borough building so that cars can be parked on both sides. The crafts and vendors will be set up along Painter Street. A DJ will be spinning music for everyone to enjoy. Prizes will be given away. A 50/50 drawing will be held and food will be sold.

First, second and third place trophies will be awarded in each category. A new division this year is import. The others are Ford, Dodge/Mopar, muscle car, bike, truck, GM, rat rod, street rod, classic car, and antique. There will also be a few special trophies awarded. The entry fee is $5 per vehicle.

Last year the Kids' Choice Award was won by Eli Jacobs who was 3 years old at the time. He helped his Uncle Brandon Jacobs and his Pappy, Randy Jacobs, build it.

“Pappy painted it. Uncle Brandon fixed up some of the electrical stuff for me and made me my seat. It has a Honda motorcycle motor,” said Eli.

“He helped them sand it and was involved all the way,” said his grandmother, Theresa Jacobs. Eli is the third generation of Jacobs to build old cars. Last year he sat beside it at the car show all day, even taking time to wash it while there to be sure the bright orange paint looked its best.

“We are proud to sponsor this car and bike show in South Connellsville. It is always a nice event with a good crowd. The vehicle owners enjoy coming out and they like the fact that we always give away so many trophies. Woods Jewelry really does a nice job with the trophies for the different categories,” said Jeff Johnson, general manager at Scott C's Auto Sales.

“This is always a big day for the borough. We appreciate the car and bike owners and all the vendors who participate. We also appreciate Jeff Johnson and the folks at Scott C's for sponsoring this event each year. They do everything first class there,” said Pete Casini, mayor of South Connellsville.

The proceeds will benefit the South Connellsville Community Playground and the South Connellsville Volunteer Fire Company. Big B will be the DJ for the third year. Participants will receive door prizes and dash plaques, said Kim Laws, an organizer of the event.
