Kristina Serafini | Sewickley Herald - Santa Claus fastens his belt as he gets ready to greet children during the Cochran Hose Company's annual 'Santa at the Station' event in Sewickley Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013. Santa said this particular red suit is very old; it was the same one pictured in a photograph of his nephew—who is now in his early 40s—sitting on Santa's lap as a child.

'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.
