'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.

‘Catering to go'

New owner

Roo Tees, 300 Nobles-town Road, Carnegie, is one of the oldest screen printing and embroidery businesses in Pittsburgh, since 1997, and now has a new owner named Bobby Gracie.

The business handles apparel for schools, corporations, organizations, businesses and sports teams. A family-based business, it has recently expanded its specialty department headed by Gracie's sister, Debbie Kokel, who is marketing the store's rhinestone line. A logo can be custom-designed to “bling out” a shirt or jersey with one's name in crystals.

Renewed interest

Joann Diegelmann is an up-and-coming artist from Carnegie's Cloverleaf Estates.

Retired and widowed after 35 years of marriage, she has renewed her interest in painting and working with embellished acrylic giclee prints. Giclee is French for “to spray or squirt” and refers to the process of how a faint image of the picture is printed out with the aid of a digital printer and is then embellished in paint. She is doing many of these pictures of animals from the Pittsburgh Zoo. She also is showing her work at several local arts and crafts shows.

Botanic Garden

Set to open in late spring or early summer is the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden, Collier Township, near Settlers Cabin Park. The first phase of 60 acres will be open to the public soon, with a goal to create a world-class botanic garden that, at 460 acres when completed, will be one of the largest botanic gardens in America. The site is located over acres of abandoned coal mines.

When fully developed, the garden will have 18 distinct gardens, five different woodlands, a visitor center, an amphitheater for cultural events, a center for botanic research, and a space for weddings and corporate meetings. Preview tours are being given now.
