'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 spring primary that will determine the candidates for Connellsville city offices in the fall general election is an important one. Three candidates are seeking the Democrat nomination for city mayor. For city council, there is one Democrats and one Republican seeking the public's vote. (This week a Fayette judge removed a Democrat's name from the May 21 primary ballot because his nominating petition had too few valid signatures.)

It's important for voters to know who their candidates are.

That's why the Daily Courier is hosting a candidates forum in April. We want the citizens of Connellsville to have a chance to learn a little more about the candidates, their beliefs and their thoughts on the city's future.

All three mayoral candidates and three council candidates have agreed to attend the April 22 forum, which is scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Carnegie Free Library in Connellsville.

As part of this forum, we are asking for our readers' help. We want to pose questions to the candidates that are of interest to citizens.

Readers may send questions via email to or (But remember, no personal attacks). Questions may also be faxed to 724-626-3567 or mailed to Daily Courier, 127 W. Apple St., Connellsville, PA 15425, by April 8.

We encourage residents to attend the April 22 forum. What you hear could help you choose your city's future leaders.
