'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.

“We were kidding (each other) about how many of us have been here for all 25,” said Monongahela Valley Hospital prez Louis Panza Jr. “I know I'm on the list.”

Gala 25 had an ambiance more akin to an intimate dinner party for each of the 560 guests, bringing together this tight-knit group of professionals from Mon-Vale Health Resources for a evening that promised to be light on business and heavy on pleasure. On hand were the likes of board chair Jack and Karen Fry, Dr. S.P. Hewie, David Hunter and Leslie Kirkland, Chuck Muia, Dr. Chito andJosie Crudo, Dr. Mark andCindy Hofbauer, Dr. Oscar andDiana Urrea, and Dr. David Hepps.

“We have an after-party across the street at Tonic every year,” Cheryl Timko, Panza's fiancee, said. “We'll stay there until 2 a.m.”

A welcome respite from business as usual, the event was at the Westin on May 18 and honored Dr. Nirmal Kotwal, Jeff Kotula, Carl Crawley Jr., and First Federal Savings Bank (accepted by prez Patrick O'Brien) for their philanthropic contributions.
