'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.

This year's Jeannette Community Days and 125th anniversary celebration begins in one month.

The celebration runs July 24 through July 27 in the lot on Magee Avenue.

There will be midway rides, a car show, a battle of barrels, a hot wings contest, fireworks and the annual parade.

To help celebrate Jeannette's long-standing tradition of parades and community on the city's 125th birthday, there will be plenty of ethnic food, craft booths, bingo and fun.

July 24 and 25, the festival will open from 5-10 p.m., on July 26, it is open from 4-11 p.m. and on July 27, it runs 2 p.m. to midnight.

The parade will march on Clay Avenue at 1 p.m. July 27 and Jeannette's own Eastcoast Turnaround will perform from 8 p.m. until the fireworks display at 10:30 p.m.

More information on festival events will be in upcoming editions of The Jeannette Spirit.
