'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
Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013, 8:55 p.m.
 

The definition of “dedication” is the act of devoting wholly and earnestly to an endeavor.

Helen “Sandy” Davidson has dedicated herself to her family and community for more than 50 years. She is a devoted mother to her two daughters and their families and to her deceased son's family.

Sandy, her late husband, John, and their children have volunteered at the VA Hospital in Aspinwall for more than 40 years helping disabled veterans.

Sandy has been actively involved with the Elks on local, state and national levels for more than 50 years.

She also has been a dedicated public servant — tax collector for Brackenridge — for 3½ years.

She has ensured that the office remained open and available to the taxpayers despite her recent personal difficulties. The citizens of Brackenridge are always first and foremost in the execution of her duties.

For all of these reasons, Sandy deserves to be elected on Nov. 5.
