'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.

Come celebrate Christmas in Connellsville.

Today through Sunday, the reason for the season will be evident throughout town as Downtown Connellsville presents It's a Connellsville Christmas.

So many are involved in this year's event.

Local businesses have opened their doors to allow nonprofits to sell cookies to help raise funds. There will be various events at Carnegie Free Library, the Connellsville Community Center and at Artworks.

And as Connellsville is rich in religious history, various churches will open their doors for tours and other events. The Connellsville Area Community Ministries has joined forces with the Connellsville Ministerial Association in hosting a live Nativity.

In addition, “Oh Come Let Us Adore Him,” a display of creches, Nativities and angels, is scheduled Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church.

Indeed, the whole town is involved. This is definitely a community event.

We urge residents to support It's a Connellsville Christmas, and we encourage the community to support local businesses, the library and the community center, as well as the nonprofits and other participants.

Community activities such as these are important. They bring people together and help the city thrive. They blend together the threads that bind the community.
