'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.

Good for economy

Coopers RV Centers Inc. is seeking to open a second recreational-vehicle location in Allegheny Township. Coopers is a locally owned, small business headquartered in Murrysville.

Since we've grown, we actively sought out Allegheny Township as a secondary location to promote economic growth in the local community. The opening of a new, state-of-the art building will bring new business and employment opportunities to the township.

The RV sales center will have a positive impact on the township by driving up business and property values in the surrounding area.

To ensure a positive beginning to this second location, I've worked closely with Allegheny Township officials. We all want to ensure the proposed development of the new location will comply with all zoning requirements.

The relationship has been overwhelmingly positive and the township is currently reviewing a request to change the residential zoning to permit a conditional use on the property.
