'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.

Carlos M. Cardoso, CEO of Kennametal Inc. in Unity, was appointed on Thursday to the Department of Commerce's Manufacturing Council. Kennametal makes machining tools for the manufacturing industry.

The council advises the department on policies that affect U.S. manufacturing and global competitiveness. Cardoso joins Gregory W. Booth, CEO of Zippo Manufacturing Co. in Bradford, as Pennsylvania's representatives on the 26-member council.

“We know that a healthy manufacturing sector correlates directly with the well-being of society and the promise of the American Dream,” Cardoso said.

Manufacturing employed about 12 million Americans in 2012.

“The council has an important role to play in shaping the direction of our nation's manufacturing strategy,” said Deputy Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank.
