'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.

Crews on Monday restored all Internet and phone service that workers disrupted in Cranberry when they accidentally cut a large underground line.

The problems began about 5 p.m. Friday, when workers installing a water line at Freedom Road and Executive Drive accidently cut the line owned by Consolidated Communications, an Illinois-based cable, phone and Internet provider.

The outage affected some residential customers, said Laura ZuHone, a spokeswoman for Consolidated Communications, but mainly hit businesses in and near the Cranberry Mall. The affected customers included banks, movie theaters and restaurants west of Route 19 that could not process credit or debit cards.
