'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.

Rich in history, Connellsville should be proud.

This weekend, the city will celebrate the accomplishments of two longtime organizations. The Carnegie Free Library will conduct a birthday bash recognizing the organization's 110 years in the city.

And the Molinaro Band will put on a free community concert as it celebrates 100 years.

How great it is to celebrate such accomplishments.

The Carnegie Free Library is an asset to our Connellsville community. And for more than 100 years, it has offered sources of information for those seeking additional knowledge. It helps citizens improve their command of literacy through services and programs. It is there for everyone — students, parents, employees and consumers.

It is far more than just a book repository.

The Molinaro band has become a Connellsville tradition. It would not be a Memorial Day, Christmas, Halloween or Veterans Day parade without these dedicated marchers. For 100 years, the Molinaro family has led this volunteer group.

We encourage the community to support both organizations.

On Sunday, stop at the library for the birthday bash, which kicks off at noon. Then at 3 p.m., head over to the Porter Theater in the Connellsville Community Center and enjoy the music.
