'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.

Cooperation among various city officials and the Connellsville Area School Board could mean that those who enjoy ice skating may have a place outdoors to do so in the city in the near future.

Connellsville Mayor Greg Lincoln as well as New Haven Hose Co. leaders, the city's street head Vern Ohler and others are working on a plan to flood the basketball courts across from South Side School to allow ice skating in the city. The property is owned by the Connellsville Area School District, which supports the plan but which has to check on liability issues before it can give its official OK to the city.

Whether it's an ice skating rink or some other public endeavor, it's encouraging early on in this new year to see the cooperation among city leaders, volunteers and school officials — all working toward one goal.

And what a great addition to the city's recreation front a winter ice rink could be. The older generation of Connellsville residents remembers when there was free ice skating at East Park and in the later years at the same South Side location that is now being considered. Youth and adults alike enjoyed the wintertime activity.

Here's hoping Connellsville residents support these endeavors, and we hope to see more cooperative projects.

By working together, so much more could be done for the betterment of Connellsville.
