'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 makers of a new movie about Pirates great Roberto Clemente are making a DVD of the film available in September only on Amazon to help fund the theatrical release in more cities.

“Baseball's Last Hero: 21 Clemente Stories” played to two sold out screenings last month at the Strand Theater in Zelienople.

Filmmaker Richard Rossi made the DVD available (for $21.21) in September to celebrate Clemente's 3,000th hit and National Hispanic Heritage month.

The film is done with a blend of news and game footage, Rossi says, along with scripted and acted scenes featuring Jamie Nieton, a two-time Olympic high jumper, as Clemente.

The “21 Clemente Stories” are told using the 21 letters in Roberto Walker Clemente. The first “R” stands for Rookie and the last “E” for earthquake, referring to the Nicaraguan quake the led to Clemente's death on an aid mission in 1972.
