'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, June 14, 2013, 8:57 p.m.
 

You have often encouraged the community to work together to make good things happen and to maximize resources. The Armstrong County Community Foundation Day of Giving is an excellent example of collaboration.

In one day, 40 nonprofit organizations benefited from a united fundraising effort. The 2013 effort raised more than $200,000.

I am writing to thank the ACCF board and staff, the business match partners and all the donors.

I extend a special thank you to the contributors to HEALTHY Armstrong, an initiative to improve the health of children and their families.
