'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.

“This is the seventh year, and I said, ‘I'm gonna spring for a hat,'” laughed Glenn Moeller.

In good company, he was one of many getting in touch with their inner cowboy or cowgirl for the Pink Ribbon Roundup held at The Chadwick on Friday.

Benefitting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Pittsburgh Affiliate, the event offered a refreshing dose of unpretentiousness with its “jeans and cowboy boots” dress code that drew 250. Far from being a crowd to call it an early night, Vida, The Singing Diva, ensured the dance floor didn't stay lonely as the good times kept rolling for the likes of board prexy Patricia Hodder, Y108's Stoney Richards, Rita DeMore, Sue Groff, Barbara Moeller, Amy Schafer, Lin Strous and Sharon McSwaney.

“I wanted to give back because I had such a great support system,” said survivor Sharon McSwaney. “This is just such a happy event.”

The evening was well on track to reach its goal of raising $215K.
