'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.

The parent of Citizens Bank has added a Scottish flavor to its name.

Citizens Financial Group, based in Providence, R.I., is being renamed, “RBS Citizens Financial Group,” said spokeswoman Lauren DiGeronimo. The RBS is short for Royal Bank of Scotland, which is the U.K.-based owner of the American banking group.

Financially troubled Royal Bank of Scotland, based in Edinburgh, was taken over by the British government in late 2008.

Citizens Bank — the Pittsburgh area's second-largest retail bank, with 132 area branches — is not changing its name, said DiGeronimo. RBS Citizens has about 1,500 branches in 12 states.
