'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.

Members of the U.S. Navy will be coming to Pittsburgh June 2 to 8, 2014, to host a Navy Week, at the same time as the Wings Over Pittsburgh Air Show.

Navy Week will include performances by the Blue Angels and the Leap Frogs, the Navy's flight demonstration and parachute teams, respectively. Visitors also will get performances from the Navy Band. The event includes visits to area schools and local veterans, community service projects with sports teams, a Navy simulator and other interactive displays. Pittsburgh is one of six cities hosting Navy Week next year.

The program returns in 2014 at a reduced level after cutbacks in Washington forced the program to be suspended for a year.

Wings Over Pittsburgh, which has drawn more than 250,000 people annually to the Coraopolis area, is scheduled for June 7 and 8. The show was cancelled last year because of the federal budget sequestration. This year's show will be based at Pittsburgh International Airport's Air Reserve Station.

Since 2005, Navy Week programs have served as the Navy's signature outreach effort into areas of the country which do not have a significant Navy presence.

Other cities selected to host a 2014 Navy Week include Dallas/Fort Worth; St. Louis; Omaha, Neb.; Mobile, Ala.; and Baltimore.
