'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 Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration will have its local debut with the Pittsburgh Symphony on June 18 at Heinz Hall.

Tickets go on sale March 11 for symphony subscribers and March 25 for the general public.

The tribute to the Grateful Dead's iconic leader, conducted by Fawzi Haimor, will feature singer and guitarist Warren Haynes performing Garcia's compositions and the standards that were part of Grateful Dead shows.

Haynes was a long-time guitarist with the Allman Brothers Band, a founding member of Gov't Mule, and often performed with members of the Grateful Dead after Garcia's death in 1995.

The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. June 18 at Heinz Hall, Downtown. Tickets are $30 to $78. Details: 412-392-4900 or www.pittsburghsymphony.org.
