'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
Friday, Oct. 4, 2013, 8:57 p.m.
 

I visit Pennsylvania from out of state so that I can assist my 85-year-old mother in caring for my sister, who is recovering from spinal surgery. I am using my sister's car and, in anticipation of my arrival, she made an appointment for a brake replacement because she had been told by a former mechanic that she would need new brakes very soon. She dropped the car by B&M Auto Repair in Connellsville for the brake job.

When I arrived to pick up the car, the owner informed me the car did not need new brakes but merely an adjustment.

I am writing to commend the owner for his honesty and integrity in his service.

Most people, myself included, would not know whether the brakes needed adjusting or replacing, and a less-honest individual could have replaced them or informed us that he had and charged us accordingly.
