'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.

Paul Trilli was appointed to fill a vacancy on the Ross board of commissioners at a special meeting on Friday.

Trilli, the Heinz Field/Aramark operations director, will replace 7th Ward commissioner Gerald O'Brien, who resigned on Nov. 18 to serve as the township's tax collector.

Commissioners Grace Stanko, Grant Montgomery and David Mikec and vacancy board chair George Tunney voted for Trilli. Commissioner Lana Mazur abstained. Commissioners Peter Ferraro, John Sponcer, Chris Rand Eyster and Daniel DeMarco did not attend the meeting.

Retired truck driver Patrick Mullin was nominated for the position, but did not receive any votes.

Trilli will join newly elected commissioners Jeremy Shaffer and Stephen Krobel, who will replace Ferraro and Eyster in January.
