'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.

Laurel: To Perryopolis teen Joshua Potter. This young man, who is a cancer survivor, took on an Eagle Scout project to help others in need. He collected toys for Children's Hospital, the facility that helped him in his battle with cancer. Because of Joshua's hard work, youth who are suffering will benefit from his contributions.

Laurel: To all Fay-West residents who cast a vote on Tuesday. Whether your candidate of choice won or lost, you did your duty and let your voice be heard through the voting process. Voting is a precious right that should never be neglected.

Community support: The Tri-Town area is hosting a huge Veterans Day Gala Sunday in honor of area veterans as well as a way to raise funds for its expansion of a veterans' memorial honoring those who fought in the Vietnam and Korean wars. The gala is scheduled at the Vanderbilt Fire Hall. There will be food and entertainment. The Tri-Town Area Historical Society event will benefit its Mile Of Pennies campaign, which is raising money for an new honor roll in the center of Dawson. The honor roll will be designed similarly to the World War I and World War II honor rolls that are currently in place. It will be adorned with the names of Vietnam and Korean War veterans of Dawson and Lower Tyrone Township.
