'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.

Fussy over fashion

Coco 66 Boutique has opened at 343 Station St., Bridgeville.

Owner Kimberly “Coco” Yablonski believes that fashion is a visual language so her store contains clothing items that would be considered edgy, yet sophisticated and affordable. She offers a customized shopping experience for parties that include refreshments and discounts.

JCC appointment

The Jewish Community Center South Hills on Kane Boulevard in Scott Township, has appointed Emily Morrow as health/physical education/recreation coordinator.

New owner
