'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.

Letter to the Editor

I'll give the local Republicans credit for one thing — their ability to spin. They certainly have been learning from their masters at the national GOP about how to present as fact completely baseless and irrational arguments, such as the one offered by letter-writer Rich Schachte (“Allegheny: Pay Westmoreland heed,” Feb. 22).

I trust voters will see through this nonsense and support Christina O'Brien for Westmoreland County prothonotary based on her record of stellar service. She is a proven leader in our community who has modernized and made more efficient this important row office. She's also a strong advocate for women and women's issues at a time that we need more women involved in government.

Christina O'Brien has earned re-election. Manufacturing reasons to support someone else is just spin. Let's leave that to the pros in Washington, D.C.
