'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 Greensburg College Club will feature “Korea, Then and Now” at 7:30 p.m. on Monday in the auditorium of Greensburg Salem Senior High School.

The club's Travelogue Series, now its 58th year, raises money for scholarships for students from Greensburg Salem and Hempfield Area High Schools.

Raising money for the scholarships is one of the main goals of the club, which was founded in 1918.

One of the its early speakers was Lowell Thomas, an American writer, broadcaster and traveler who hit upon the novel idea of the travelogue, movies about faraway places, during a visit to Alaska before World War I.

Barbara Hillis, who serves as chairwoman of the Greensburg College Club travelogue series, said it is hoped that Monday's presentation will attract veterans of the Korean War.

“Korea, Then and Now” was created by travelogue producer Buddy Hatton, who will trace the country's development over the past 50 years.

He got his start in show business as a teen in San Franciso, where he created and produced his own radio and television show, which featured another teen, Johnny Mathis, as a regular guest, according to his website.

He was a television show host in Canada and a radio host for several stations in San Francisco.

The next installment of Greensburg's Travelogue Series will be “The Heart of San Francisco” with Sandy Mortimer on April 8.
