'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.

Dismayed by dump

Please be advised that the beautiful area at the top of Ridgeway Street and Bernhardt Way and all the way down Webster Avenue in Pittsburgh has become a disgusting dumping ground for local slobs who think nothing of tossing construction waste, old mattresses, used condoms from nocturnal prostitution, ad infinitum/ad nauseam , onto the land.

Appropriate agencies have been contacted, only to respond, “If it's not in front of a street address, we can't pick it up.” Say what?

I just moved here from filthy New York City and while Pittsburgh's main thoroughfares are remarkably clean in comparison, smaller side streets are reminiscent of what I thought I left behind.
