'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.

Highlands Meals on Wheels announced Thursday it will not be delivering meals until further notice because of damage caused by a broken waterline in the organization's kitchen in Harrison.

The organization provides food to about 120 people in Harrison, Brackenridge and Tarentum, President Joanne Diller said.

The organization — which normally delivers meals on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays — has not delivered meals since Jan. 1 because of the weather. It had expected to resume Friday.

Later in the day Thursday, the organization was working on alternatives that may allow food deliveries to resume on Monday, said Beverly Carnahan, secretary and co-director.
