'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.

Tarentum sidewalks II

I can't believe anyone thinks the new sidewalks in downtown Tarentum are better than the old ones. Who is responsible for this sheer stupidity?

Whoever it is, every single one of them needs — as my grandma used to say — a good swift kick in the pants. This is a waste of time, money and energy.

I realize the sidewalks needed to be fixed, but the borough should've fixed what was already there, not added new ones and widened them.

How about fixing the streets, or doesn't anyone care about them? Nah, that would make too much sense.
