'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.

Lance: To New Kensington's warring authorities. Sewer is suing water because water is charging too much to read meters and sewer needs the water meter readings to figure out sewer bills, which are billed separately from water. Both sides are incurring legal fees that will be footed by the ratepayers. Here's a thought: Abolish both authorities and replace them with one water and sewer authority, which means less bureaucracy and one bill — all at lower cost to ratepayers.

Lance: To the Riverhawk. The Riverhawk is the just-chosen nickname/mascot for the new Armstrong High School. But what's a Riverhawk? Excellent question. Our research reveals it's a type a flower, specifically, a bearded iris. It's a perfectly lovely purple flower. Should make for quite the fearsome mascot.
