'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.

Carnegie Police officers and Carnegie Elementary teachers will square off Friday night in charity basketball to raise money for the district's anti-bullying program.

Carnegie police chief Jeff Kennedy said the idea stemmed from a brainstorming session with school principal Carla Hudson about how to bring together the school, police and community.

“We wanted to find a way to better build the relationship between the teachers and police department and community,” he said.

“And we thought, ‘What better way than some type of charity event?'”

The money raised will benefit the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, a national anti-bullying program in which the district participates.

Kennedy said he hopes the fundraiser will allow students to see police in a different setting.

He said seeing officers on the basketball court and out of uniform will let students see officers have a life outside of work and make them more relatable.

The district's Parent-Teacher Association will also hold a bake sale, and there will be a half-court shot contest as well.
