'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.

Concerning the “Thou Shall Not Move” group: When this thing started about the removal of the Ten Commandments monument from the grounds of Connellsville Junior High School, there were so many people interested in it.

At the first rally in front of the monument at Junior High East, there were around 150 people. On Sept. 12, 2012, after another rally, we all walked down to the vo-tech facility, where the school board was having a meeting. We wanted to show our support for keeping the monument where it stood for 50 years.

There was standing room only.

Where are all these people?

At our last meeting on Jan. 23, there wasn't even 20 people attending.

Pastor Ewing Marietta and Gary Colatch are doing a wonderful job keeping the movement alive. This is our chance for a small community to make a huge difference. The group is not going away, so if you are still interested in preserving your freedoms, come join us.
