'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.

Pittsburgh City Council on Tuesday honored two University of Pittsburgh students who rescued an elderly neighbor last month from his burning home in Oakland.

Joshua Yoskosky, 21, and Joe Fogiato, 20, rushed into the house on Parkview Street Jan 31 after seeing smoke and flames and helped the man get out. The man was not identified.

Yoskosky, a Belle Vernon native, is majoring in finance and prelaw. Fogiato, of Monongahela, is majoring in marketing and supply chain management.

Council declared Tuesday Joshua Yoskosky and Joe Fogiato Day in the city.
