'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.

For nearly nine decades, Pittsburgh has been presenting its young ladies to society as part of the second-oldest debutante ball in the country, the Cinderella Ball.

As part of a longstanding tradition of supporting the city through charitable fundraising, each debutante fulfills a minimum of 30 hours of volunteer service for the designated beneficiary, which in 2013 will be the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. The debs then will be presented by their fathers during the ball on Jan. 26.

On Sunday, co-chairs Catherine Loevner and Diana Rath welcomed 21 debutantes during the Cinderella Women's Committee Mother-Daughter Tea at the Benedum Center.

"We're really excited about the girls we have; they're really nice young ladies," said publicity chair Heather Chronis.

The debutantes are Isabel Aiken, Anna Arnn, Samantha Ballengee, Stephanie Betts, Lyndsay Bozzone, Maclean Calihan, Hanna Chait, Rose Egan, Katherine Girdhar, Samantha Goodman, Olivia Loevner, Sydney Mordoh, Caroline Muse, Campbell North, Athena Petredis, Madison Pollock, Brooke Roberts, Caroline Stamy, Maegan Stump, Julia Teti and Meryl Warshafsky.
