'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.

A state representative for part of Pittsburgh's western suburbs has set up two new office locations to make himself more accessible to constituents.

Staff for representative Nick Kotik, D-45 — who represents parts of Carnegie, Scott, Robinson and Coraopolis — will be available in Carnegie and Scott each Wednesday.

“What's evolved over the last few years is we don't get the walk-in traffic we used to get,” he said. “We need more mobile locations.”

Kotik will be at the Scott municipal building from 9 a.m. to noon each Wednesday and at the Carnegie municipal building from 1 to 4 p.m. Constituents can be seen by appointment.

“You can't justify having a full-time office when the walk-in traffic isn't there,” he said.

He said the weekly office hours in the municipal buildings is a more organized structure.

“It just makes it much more efficient to do it that way,” he said. “Otherwise, you might sit there for hours and have two people walk in the whole day.”
