'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.

Revenue from table games at Pennsylvania casinos continue to rise.

The state's 11 casinos generated nearly $61.6 million in April. That amount was $5.05 million, or 8.9 percent, more than casinos generated in April 2012. There are 1,041 table games at casinos around Pennsylvania.

Coupled with slots revenues, which have been down statewide for five consecutive months, Pennsylvania casinos generated $266.7 million in gross revenues for April. That figure stood at $270.6 million the same month last year.

The Meadows Racetrack & Casino in North Strabane, Washington County, generated nearly $4.4 million last month at its 80 table games. That was up from $2.7 million last April.

Rivers Casino on the North Shore, however, lost more than $1 million in April table-game revenue, dropping to just under $5 million last month.
