'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.

No transit merger

Re. the proposal by Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald to merge transit agencies in Southwestern Pennsylvania (story, “Transit merger idea spreads,” Feb. 24): I couldn't be more opposed. I've seen Port Authority service cuts that are disgraceful and, on top of that, fares go up.

If this new agency comes to be, Port Authority gets involved with Westmoreland County. Westmoreland Transit is doing a great job and I fail to see how this new agency will serve us better.

I wish Mr. Fitzgerald would focus on his own county's problems.
