'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.

More than 450 people attended the second annual Father-Daughter Snowflake Ball Saturday at Stratigos Banquet Centre in North Huntingdon. Organized by the North Huntingdon Township Department of Parks and Recreation, the event featured dinner, dancing, prizes and a magic show.

The department's director, Dan Miller, said there was a waiting list for the popular event. “This is a tougher ticket to get than Steeler tickets,” he said. “Enjoy your memories tonight and cherish your time with your girls.”

The event was open to father figures and girls ages 4 to 10, who each got a carnation and gift bag upon entering. Jenna Varney and Callie Meyer, both 8, are friends who attend Sunset Valley Elementary School. Callie said it was fun to attend with her father, Steve Meyer, because “He's a loving and caring dad, and he's a good dancer,” while Jenna said she had a great time with her dad, Jim Varney, a “wild dancer.”
