'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.

Legislative District 22 residents have a new representative for the state House of Representatives, after Erin Molchany of Mt. Washington was sworn into office on Jan. 1 in Harrisburg.

The ceremony in the House chamber marked the beginning of the 197th legislative session. On the first day of her first term, Molchany acknowledged that there is a lot of work to begin in Harrisburg and in her district.

“As I have done before, I again pledge tireless dedication and my deepest commitment to serving everyone in my district. There is so much to do. I'll be there with you and hope you'll be there with me,” she said.

The 22nd Legislative District in Allegheny County consists of parts of Pittsburgh, including Brookline, Beechview, Mt. Washington, Duquesne Heights, Overbrook, Manchester, Sheraden, Esplen, Baldwin Township, and the boroughs of Castle Shannon and Whitehall.

Molchany is the former director of the Pittsburgh Urban Magnet Project, also known as PUMP.
