'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.

Michael C. Pecora, 54, of Richland is Hampton's new acting chief of police.

Hampton Council unanimously appointed Pecora, a captain on the Hampton force, Nov. 28 to replace retiring chief Dan Connolly.

Connolly officially will retire Dec. 31 but vacated his office on Nov. 21 to use five weeks of accumulated vacation time.

Pecora officially will become Hampton's new police chief in January.

A 1976 graduate of North Allegheny High School, Pecora has a bachelor's degree in business administration from La Roche College.

He is a single father with two children: Air Force Sgt. Joseph Pecora, 28, of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Amber Pecora, 22, who works in Chicago's public school system.
