'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.

Connellsville is looking for a few good ambassadors.

If you love your city, have a passion to learn about the Connellsville area and its citizens along with strong leadership and communication skills, you may be the perfect ambassador.

An ambassador would be called upon to attend local events and meet Connellsville citizens and visitors to discuss all things Connellsville.

An ambassador will be a personal representative of the city and local areas. What a unique idea.

We encourage those who have the time and the love for their city to consider getting involved. This is a chance for residents to show some pride in their community. And it's a way to welcome visitors to our town and to show it off.

The ambassador program is being instituted through a grant received by the Carnegie Free Library and Fayette County Cultural Trust. It was awarded by the Hotel Tax Grant Committee through the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau.

“With so much history and so many significant sites such as the Gibson House, Col. William Crawford's Cabin and the newly opened Connellsville Area Historical Museum, this program is the opportunity to showcase it all with the help of knowledgeable and willing ambassadors of our city,” said Michael Edwards, Fayette County Cultural Trust president.

Applications are available at the local library. Mandatory training will be provided.
