'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 Dawson-Perryopolis Salvation Army Service Unit would like to say a big thank you to Morrell Volunteer Fire Department, DL&V Volunteer Fire Department and Rick and Tiffany Adobato of the Tri-Town Market for helping to make Christmas a little brighter for area children. Your kindness and generosity will never be forgotten.

It is here, the holiday season. Many of us will be celebrating the new year by hosting or attending a New Year's Eve party. Please take care. We would like to see each and every one of you make it through this happy time of the year unscathed. If you will be hosting or attending a party, please monitor the use of alcohol by friends and family. Don't let anyone leave if they seem to have had a little too much holiday. Take their keys, have them stay overnight, offer them a ride or call a cab — please don't let any friends or family members drive drunk. Remember to keep all alcoholic beverages out of the reach of children. Play it safe, please.

That's it for this week folks. If you have something that you would like to see in this column, give me a call at 724-529-7927 or email or drop me a line at 270 Banning Road, Dawson, PA 15428. Due to the holiday schedule, please have your information to me by 6 p.m. Sunday so that I can prepare my column for the following week. Thank you and have a Happy New Year everyone.
