'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.

Hockey fans gathered this afternoon at the Allegheny County Courthouse to show their support for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who open the Stanley Cup Playoffs tonight at Consol Energy Center.

Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl declared today "a great day for hockey" as fans wore team jerseys and colors and cheered with Pens mascot Iceburgh in the courthouse's courtyard.

The team asked fans attending the 7:30 p.m. game to wear white to create a "white out" in the stands. Fans who don't have tickets can watch the game on a projection screen in the parking lot of the Epiphany Catholic Church near the arena.
