'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.

State Sen. Jim Ferlo announced on Wednesday that he donated $10,000 to Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's re-election campaign and is endorsing the mayor for another four-year term.

Ferlo said $8,000 came from his political action committee and $2,000 from personal funds.

“I'm not going to chance horses in midstream,” the Highland Park Democrat said. “I think the mayor and his administration have performed well.”

Ravenstahl is expected to face city Controller Michael Lamb and Councilman Bill Peduto in the May primary. State Auditor General Jack Wagner of Beechview also is considering whether to enter the race.

In September, Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald donated $8,000 to Peduto's campaign.
