'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.

Friends gathered Wednesday for “An Evening in the Neighborhood” at Latrobe Country Club.

The fifth annual auction event benefited Latrobe Art Center, which this year has touched the lives of 1,600 people by helping them with development of self-expression, creativity, fine motor skills and confidence.

Center director Gabi Nastuck pointed out the decorations throughout the reception area, which were papier-mache sculptures created by her art club students at Christ the Divine Teacher School. Each sculpture identified the young artist, and why he or she liked art.

“Tonight, when you are bidding on the auction items, please remember that art matters the same way language matters … or the way breathing matters,” Nastuck said. “It is a fundamental component of what makes us uniquely human.”

The evening ended with Mark Ferry auctioning some spectacular pieces, such a lithograph of “The Critic,” signed by Norman Rockwell.

Arnold andKit Palmer donated a signed print of “Gold Legends” for the auction, and Kit was honorary co-chairwoman of the event withNancy Rogers Crozier.
