'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.

This writer has been privileged for some years to attend the annual Fallingwater Twilight Tour.

This writer also has been challenged each time to come up with a fresh angle on Frank Lloyd Wright's magical, mystical retreat astride Bear Run in Fayette County.

Books have been written, photos taken, documentaries filmed. What is left, except to wonder if there is a sight more enchanting than Fallingwater as it glows in the twilight, at one with the surrounding forest? If you haven't been there yet, you should go.

Guests at the 18th annual tour, held Aug. 24, explored at leisure the grounds and multilevel indoor spaces and terraces. Adding a dash of spice to the gourmet picnic that followed was jazz music featuring Brazilian singer Kenia.

On the scene were Fallingwater Director Lynda Waggoner with Tom; Western Pennsylvania Conservancy President Tom Saunders withLisa Auel; and Susie Shipley, president of sponsor Huntingdon Bank, with Neil.

From the VIP list: Susan Fitzsimmons, Steve and Kathi Guinn, Michael and Judy Cheteyan, Mike andSusan Boyle, Barbara Bott andBob Jennings, Dan Nydick, Jim and Fran Abraham, Pam Meadowcroft andJim Holland, Josh and Marion Whetzel, Mark andCaryle Glosser, Matt and Kim Wagle, Michael and Amy Couch, Scott and Sue Lammie, Kate Dewey, Carolyn Doronio and Tori Haring-Smith.
