'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.

Former Pittsburgher James Wolpert's time on NBC's “The Voice” has ended.

The former Carnegie Mellon University student and Shadyside Apple store employee was eliminated on Tuesday's live show.

Wolpert, who sang U2's “With or Without You” on Monday, had been saved by instant Twitter voting last week, which this season has generally lead to elimination the next week.

After being eliminated, the Lancaster native told Zap2it.com that he doesn't see this as a setback.

“I just can't wait to continue creating music,” said Wolpert, who recently moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career. “I really want to put the emphasis on creating music. I want to cut a record. I want to start going on tour. I want to do musician things and start making this my life. I want to learn — there's so much I have to learn about what it takes to be a recording artist, about what it takes to go on tour. I want to take this time and be a sponge and start meeting people and start — just start. This is all an awesome beginning. I can't wait to see where it goes.”

Three contestants remain on “The Voice” — Tessanne Chin, Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin. They'll face off in the finals at 8 p.m. Dec. 16 with the results at 9 p.m. Dec. 17.
