'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.

With the municipal primary set for May 21, it's not too early to think about your choices for Connellsville mayor and city council.

On Monday, the Daily Courier will sponsor a candidates forum for those whose names appear on the ballot for Connellsville mayor and city council. All three Democrat mayoral candidates (incumbent Charles Matthews, Greg Lincoln and Josh DeWitt), along with the Republican (Aaron Zolbrod) and Democrat (Tom Karpiak) seeking seats on city council, have agreed to participate.

The candidates will address issues facing the Connellsville community. The questions for the candidates have been suggest by our readers.

It's important for voters to be well-informed before they visit the voting booth. They should know where the candidates stand on the issues.

And candidates should gain our votes based on their ability to serve — not on who's friends with whom.

We encourage residents to attend Monday's forum, which is scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the auditorium of the Carnegie Free Library on South Pittsburgh Street.

The answers the candidates give could help you choose the leaders of the city for the next four years.
