'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.

This past year has been tough on many businesses. Economic conditions haven't been kind to businesses or families.

On Tuesday, the Daily Courier will highlight businesses in the Fay-West area that have found ways to sustain themselves in our annual Profiles of Progress edition. This year we are featuring businesses and nonprofit organizations that have found ways to succeed — be it for just a few years or for decades. We are featuring businesses that offer different services, focusing on health and education, lifestyles and entertainment.

Profiles of Progress features businesses and organizations from Connellsville, Dunbar, Uniontown, Scottdale, Mt. Pleasant and surrounding communities. The stories of these businesses provide insights as to how they got started and learned to survive through innovations to meet customer needs.

In all, we feature more than 20 businesses. But we know there are many more that could have been recognized.

And while there may be many empty storefronts in Connellsville, there are still many familiar stores that have served the community through the years. There are also some new ones popping up.

Remember, also, that it's your support that keeps these businesses going.

So, as spring nears, why not take some time to visit the local businesses of the Fay-West area. Let's help them continue to progress into the future.
