'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.

Reading the Business story “Judges order Uber, Lyft to shut down operations in Pennsylvania” , I thought, “Here is yet another example of having to live in the ‘Obama politically correct America' that has reached every city and small town in our country.”

Where has the PUC been regarding jitney service that has been alive and well for years all around our city? Apparently, it is more important to be able to get home at 4 a.m. from the local bar than it is to be able to get to your job at 7 a.m. Even the crimes committed against (let alone the killings of) jitney drivers do not seem to matter to any “powers that be” in our state.
