'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.

Would you love a great slice of gluten-free pizza? Join the Herbalicious Gluten-Free Living Support Group from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday for a gluten-free pizza party at Little E's Pizzeria in Greensburg. Enjoy two slices of pizza, a dinner salad and a soft drink for $9.99 per person; call 724-542-9745 to reserve your seat and for more information.

Beginning Oct. 8, the support group will meet every second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at Herbalicious, 612 W. Main St., Mt. Pleasant. Anyone interested in the gluten-free lifestyle is encouraged to attend.

A plea to all dog owners — please remember to clean up after your four-legged friends. It is so disheartening to see waste on our sidewalks or in the grass in our parks. It only takes a second to “scoop,” but it makes the world of difference.

School is now in session so please, if you are out and about in the mornings or afternoon, watch out for the little ones waiting for buses or walking to school. They are everywhere and very excited right now, so a little extra caution could be a lifesaver.

The new Chamber of Commerce offices are now open and are located adjacent to the Shop Demo Depot business located in the old Cook's building. The office hours will be 9 a.m. through 1 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays. Stop in and check it out.

Just a quick note to parents in the borough — please make sure that your little ones are wearing bicycle helmets and know about bicycle safety. We have had a few close calls, and no one wants to see a tragedy happen.

The Mt. Pleasant Glass and Ethnic pageant committee is now accepting applications for the upcoming festival that will be held Sept. 27, 28 and 29. The divisions for the titles include Little Miss, for ages 4 to 7; Young Miss, for girls 8 to 12; and Miss for young ladies 13 to 18. Applications can be obtained by visiting the website at or by calling 724-689-4768.

Also, applications are now being accepted for the Mt. Pleasant's Got Talent that will be held during the Glass and Ethnic Festival. The contest will showcase entertainment acts of all ages and only the first 12 acts will be accepted. Those under the age of 18 must have parental consent; for information call 724-547-9632.

Dirt Road Sunset, a local band, has released a new CD titled “Waiting for the Sunrise” and all proceeds from the sales of the CDs will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. The new CDs are priced at $10 and can be purchased by contacting band founder George Estochin at 724-455-3369 or by sending a check or money order to George Estochin, P.O. Box 170, Melcroft, PA 15462.

The DAR House genealogical library is now open and anyone wishing to stop in to do some research is welcome. The library is open from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and from 10:30 to 2:30 p.m. Wednesdays now through October.

Sign up now for the Corey Moximchalk Classic Memorial Golf Outing to be held starting at 1:15 p.m. Sunday at the Norvelt Golf Club. This event is held in memory of Moximchalk, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident in the spring. Cost for the event is $85 per person, and all teams will be four-person. If you don't want to play golf but still want to attend, the 5:30 p.m. dinner buffet is open to all for $25. For information call 724-516-1792.

The Mt. Pleasant's Farmers Market will operate now through Oct. 23. You can register and pay $5 a week or $50 for the entire season. If you make it, bake it or grow it you can offer it at the farmers market.

If you are a resident of the Mt. Pleasant Township, your monthly recycling date will be the first Thursday of a full week of each month. If you do not have a container from your recycling company, use any container that you have but please mark it as recyclable.

We are doing a great job recycling here in the borough so let's keep it up. Items that can be recycled include glass, plastics, cans, newspapers, phone books, magazines, junk mail, cardboard that has been folded, bundled and tied and not taped. Now you can recycle the lids of your pizza boxes. If you have more items then you have recycling containers, you can feel free to use any container that you have for items. Simply mark on the container that it is a recycle container. The next recycling days will be Sept. 16 and 17.

To submit an item for this column, email
