'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.

Oakland CatholicHigh School put a Parisian spin on its Leading Ladies Gala X, which also served as an excuse to toast the school's 25th anniversary.

Not only did An Evening in Paris draw more than 500 into the Westin on Oct. 3, it put the spotlight on a class of 18 area women. They are: Mia Boccella-Hartle, Maris Bondi, Meg Cheever,Sister Rosemary Donley, Mary Ann Dunham, Mary Lee Gannon, Christy Goss, Mary Anne Hanna, Bonnell Irvin, Beth Marcello ,SisterCecilia Murphy, Rona Nesbit, Susan Rauscher, Jean Ann Streiff, Kathleen Sullivan, Charena Swann,Kristin Ifft Wells and Meredith McDonough.

Event chairs Brad and Colleen Totten and honorary chairs Mike andTerri Clark were at the helm for the annual event, which has raised more than $1 million for Oakland Catholic through the years.

“It feels wonderful. I went there and so did my sister, so to come back and see all the girls now is wonderful,” said honoree McDonough.
