'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 finest talent in Western Pennsylvania will be showcased as part of the 18th annual “Hoops for a Cure” basketball tripleheader on Saturday at Chartiers Valley High School. The WPIAL Girls and Boys All-Star teams will be playing in the first two games of the tripleheader with the girls playing at 4:30 p.m. and the boys following at 6 p.m.

The third game of the evening will feature the Chartiers Valley High faculty and coaches facing off against South Fayette High's faculty and coaches beginning at 7:30 p.m.

With more than $1.2 million raised for pancreatic cancer research over the past 17 years, the popular “Hoops for a Cure” charity event benefits the Nathan S. Arenson Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research, which is overseen by Dr. Olivera Finn, Professor and Chair at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

After the games, prizes will be raffled off, including autographed sports memorabilia, a grand prize of two tickets to the quarter finals of the U.S. Open, along with tickets to several other major sporting events, as well as many other gifts. Raffle tickets are $10 each. Door prizes will also be given away during the evening to several lucky patrons who have a winning admission ticket.

Adrienne Arenson established the Nathan S. Arenson Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research in memory of her husband, a respected and well-known member of the South Hills community, who succumbed to pancreatic cancer on May 31, 1995.
