'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.

A luncheon at LeMont on June 26 served to put the spotlight on supporters of Every Child Inc., which provides numerous support and wellness programs for area birth, foster and adoptive families.

“This afternoon to Every Child allows us the opportunity to celebrate community and partnerships. In order to be a successful organization, you have to collaborate,” said executive director Jesse McLean.

Children's Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center, Chartwell Pennsylvania, Covenant Church of Pittsburgh Young Adult Ministry and the Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership were among this year's class of honorees.

Also lauded with the Family Ever After Award was Alexis Altieri, one of EC's foster parents.

“It's amazing, really … the whole foster thing. A lot of people really deserve the credit, because there's so many needy children,” offered her father, Ron Tucke.
