'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.

Final straw?: Frank Trigona of Jeannette wants the city to pay nearly $267,000 in damages and legal fees awarded in a lawsuit against the city involving his rental properties. The city, which is trying to borrow money just to keep operating, apparently doesn't have it.

With the Bucs and Cards dueling for best National League record, this series — to many, the biggest in PNC Park's history — could be a turning point, setting the tone and direction for the stretch drive. And Wednesday's trade deadline only thickens the plot. Let's go Bucs!
