'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.

Passion captured

Thank you for the Living story “A former athlete, the Rev. Joe Freedy scores points with parishioners” (Aug. 4 and TribLIVE.com) by Rex Rutkoski, who did a wonderful job.

I am rector of our diocesan seminary and everywhere I went, people were talking about the story in such favorable ways. Rutkoski did a fantastic job of handling the topic and especially of capturing Father Freedy's personality and passion for vocations to the priesthood and for life in general.

I appreciate the Trib's inclusion of this topic and the coverage of it .

The Rev. Joseph M. Mele

The writer is rector of the Diocese of Pittsburgh's St. Paul Seminary.
