'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.

The Anglican Church in North America on Sunday elected a new archbishop as the College of Bishops concluded a three-day conclave at St. Vincent Archabbey on the grounds of St. Vincent College, near Latrobe.

The Right Rev. Dr. Foley Beach of the Diocese of the South succeeds the Most Rev. Robert Duncan of Pittsburgh, the first archbishop for the Anglican Church in North America.

Beach will serve a five-year term and is eligible for re-election, according to a news release issued Sunday afternoon.

“I am delighted by this election and how the College of Bishops, after much deliberation and prayer, came to a unanimous decision,” Duncan said. “This a happy day for the Anglican Church in North America, a happy day for the Anglican Communion, and a happy day for the Christian Church.”

Archbishop-elect Beach served as the rector and pastor of Holy Cross Anglican Church in Loganville, Ga., from its founding in February 2004 until December.

Beach will officially take office at the conclusion of the Provincial Assembly of the Anglican Church in North America, which begins on Wednesday at St. Vincent College.
