'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.

The sky will twinkle above Whitehall this weekend as Caste Village's "Holiday Light Celebration" helps to kick off the winter season.

The annual festivity, set for Saturday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Caste Village Shopping Center, will include horse-drawn sleigh rides, performances by Dance Workshop by Shari and Baldwin High School students, holiday treats, charicature and face painting artists and the "big finale" - a 15-minute fireworks show by Pyrotechnico, said event organizer, Sherry Frisch, president of the Caste Village Merchants Association.

"This is a nice family-oriented event - taking a nice sleigh ride to kick the season off - and then the fireworks are just great," Frisch said.

Santa will arrive at Caste Village, located at the intersection of Grove, Weyman and Baptist roads, with his elves on the back of a sleigh to begin the event at 5 p.m., Frisch said. Santa also will help to light the tree in front of the shopping center.

Attendees are invited to bring a camera and get a photo taken with Santa or sit on his lap and share their wishes with him.

Vendors and Caste businesses will sell winter goodies and hot chocolate.

Last year, more than 280 children attended the event, Frisch said.

"It's the same traditional event. It just keeps growing," she said.

And the fireworks are what makes the "Holiday Light Celebration," which is sponsored by the Caste Village Merchants Association and Caste Village Inc., stand out from other winter festivities in the area, Frisch said.
