'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.

East Allegheny's Logan Middle School is looking ahead to a pair of science competitions.

On Monday the district's board of directors approved Logan science teacher Eileen Joll's request to take up to 13 interested students to participate in the Southwestern Pennsylvania Middle School Science Bowl on March 1 at Community College of Allegheny County South Campus in West Mifflin.On March 29 there will be 22 Logan students competing in Carnegie Science Center's Pennsylvania Regional Science and Engineering Fair competition at Heinz Field.

They were winners in last week's annual science fair at the middle school. District officials expect to honor those students at a board meeting.

Superintendent Roger D'Emidio honored high school student William Marshall on Monday. He attended the Remaking Cities Congress sponsored by the Pittsburgh Youth Media. He was East Allegheny Business Association student of the month in January and has a 3.67 grade point average.

The board voted to allow guidance secretary Linda Gorski to purchase her service time through the Pennsylvania School Employees' Retirement System for the year she was on special sick leave. The district will pay an employer share of $1,973.24.
