'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 union representing 700 nurses at Altoona Regional Health System are calling for open talks with UPMC, which wants to acquire the Blair County health system.

SEIU Healthcare has started a online petition, at www.qualitycareforaltoona.com, asking that the Altoona community be represented in talks between Altoona Regional and UPMC as they finalize an acquisition agreement.

Altoona Regional, which announced Wednesday that it had selected UPMC as an affiliation partner, owns a 380-bed hospital and other medical facilities in Altoona.
