'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.

Sales tax collections that go to the Allegheny Regional Asset District were 3.2 percent ahead of last year's in the first quarter of the year, district officials announced Monday.

RAD has received $26.6 million this year, compared to $21.9 million for the same period in 2013. Property taxes the state sends to RAD lag by two months, meaning money the district received this month was for purchases that shoppers made in January.

David Donahoe, executive director of RAD, attributed the increase to a rise in delinquent sales tax payments by businesses. RAD supports parks, libraries, stadiums and cultural groups with half of the proceeds of an additional 1 percent sales tax in Allegheny County.
