'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.

Consol Energy Inc. said Monday it offered voluntary buyouts to 213 salaried employees that have 30 or more years of service with the coal and natural gas producer.

The figure represents 2.3 percent of the Cecil-based company's workforce, spokeswoman Lynn Seay said.

The voluntary separation offer doesn't include employees at coal mines and the Fairmont Supply business. No other details were available.

Consol reported an $11 million loss for the July through September quarter due to coal mines being idled in light of a weaker market, plus conveyor belt problems at two Greene County mines.
