'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.

Dura-Bond Industries Inc. plans to build a 55,000-square-foot pipe-coating plant and 3,000-square-foot office in the RIDC Riverplace City Center of Duquesne industrial park that could mean between 75 to 85 jobs.

The new plant will complement the company's existing coating facility in Export. The plant could become operational sometime late 2011.

Jason Norris, Dura-Bond vice president of commercial operations said the added interest in deep-well drilling in the Marcellus shale helped spur the expansion. The choice of Duquesne was because of its proximity to rail lines and access to the river, he said.
