'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.

Duquesne University announced the formation of a needs-based scholarship.

The Robena J. and Walter W. Comer Endowed Scholarship will be available to undergraduates for the 2011-12 academic year, with a preference given to Washington County residents.

Walter Comer is a Washington County native and 1949 graduate of Duquesne. A veteran of the Battle of the Bulge, he was an attorney for the AFL-CIO and spent 29 years in Washington, D.C., with the Department of Labor.

He established the scholarship in honor of his late wife, Robena J. Peterson Comer, with a $50,000 gift.
