'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.

Paris 66 Bistro saw to it that no Francophile was left wanting during its Bastille Day celebration July 14 thanks to an all-day event that marked the debut of its new French chef, Franck Lacaille.

Waving away the concept of making guests wait until evening to raise a glass, festivities at the East Liberty hot spot began bright and early with a brunch that launched at 10 a.m. “Paris in the 1920s” served as the theme, with the space set up to mimic an authentic tavern — or guinguette.

Throughout the day, the Ortner-Roberts Duo and the Pittsburgh Boilermakers underscored the festivities, which drew the likes of owners Fred and Lori Rongier, French Consul to Pittsburgh Jean-Dominique Le Garrec, Lorraine Malcolm and Sam Kiss, Patricia Hermenault, Robbie Bernard, Marie Francoise and Dominique Poncet.
