'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.

Connellsville Planning Commission has approved site reviews for a medical center's expansion and a pavilion for a local housing authority.

The panel will begin meeting at a new time in June.

Connellsville Counseling and Psychological Services LLC, a medical office along South Pittsburgh Street next to Wesley Health Center, is expanding its business.

Tom Currey, health and zoning officer, said the $500 expansion will require no or very little construction because it involves one or two partition walls.

He said the office was granted a zoning variance.

The board also approved the $23,000 construction of a pavilion by the Connellsville Housing Authority at North Manor.

Currey said the 28-by-18-foot pavilion, will be in a field next to the playground on North Manor's property. The pavilion will have two power outlets but no additional outside lighting.

In other business, the board voted to move its meeting time from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at Connellsville City Hall.

The change was made because new board members who work have difficulty attending the meetings in the early afternoon. The new time will allow the public to attend the meetings.

The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. June 3. The new time will be advertised once Currey discusses the change with the board's solicitor.

The board also approved a site-review plan for two porch roofs and projects for two residential sheds.

All the projects will need further approval by Fayette County officials.
