Flash!: H'art & Soul of Haiti; Roberto Clemente Museum Fundraiser

John Altdorfer - WORTH WAITING FOR Just how much anticipation was in the air for WQED’s Downton Abbey-inspired evening on September 18? Enough to tide 150 guests over for nine months. The original January date had to be rescheduled, and with good reason: the guest of honor, Masterpiece executive producer Rebecca Eaton (center), had fallen ill. Well worth the wait, thanks to a jaw-dropping room design by Bill Chisnell Productions and multi-courses from The Common Plea. “There is Downton mania,” mused Eaton. Also pictured are WQED-TV board chair Debra Caplan and prexy Deborah Acklin.

Justin Merriman | Tribune-Review - FIELD OF DREAMS: “We decided to do this because he loved Roberto more than anything,” said Roberto Clemente Museum owner Duane Rieder (right). The “he” was Manny Sanguillen (second from right), the former Pirates catcher who was a friend and teammate of Roberto. On Sept. 19, he helped to officially christen a new wing of the museum in his honor.

'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.
