'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.

Letter to the Editor
Friday, May 3, 2013, 8:57 p.m.

The fight is still on to save Connellsville's 10 Commandments monument. We can and must win this case.

Recently, I watched a video called “Prelude to War,” produced in 1942 shortly after the United States entered World War II. The movie was produced by the U.S. government through the Special Service Division and released through the war department.

In the production, the U.S. government made sure that the citizens of this great country understood that Moses and the Ten Commandments provided the perfect foundation for our country. During one of the scenes, an image of one of the Ten Commandments was displayed as the commentator said this is the bedrock of our nation.

This is what was important to our country in 1942. So, what happened to our country in the past 70 years?

The Constitution has not changed, but now we are not allowed to display the Ten Commandments outside a public building.

Should this monument even be an argument right now? We need moral absolutes more than ever.

There is no compromise on the Ten Commandments monument. What we need to do is refuse to move the monument. The Ten Commandments are the foundation of our great country. Our children need to know this so that they may know why this country became the greatest nation on Earth. It truly provides freedom for all.

Come out and let your voice be heard May 29 at 5:30 p.m. at the Fraternal Order of Eagles on Arch Street, Connellsville.
