'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 Pitcairn Lions Club and the Pitcairn Woman's Club held their annual "Reciprocity and Education Dinner" on May 14 in the Park Building.

The clubs recognized their 2012 scholarship recipients, borough employees and educators.

Scholarships were presented to Jon Antonich, Lions Club recipient; and Shannon Mignogna and Valonn Wallace, Woman's Club recipients.

Recognized for their service to the borough were borough manager Malisa Migliori; borough secretaries Judy Donis, Marguerite Holby and Carrie Kozier; council president John Prucnal; vice president Jack Bova; and council members George Burkhardt, Kevin Dick, Patsy Pizzuto and Rollo Vecchio.

The Lion's Club welcomed members of the new Propel Pitcairn School including Principal Robert Bischoff and assistant principal Jocelyn Artinger.

The Woman's Club presented them with a Pitcairn Banner to be placed outside of the school on Agatha Street.


Pitcairn residents are proud of our town's seniors who are graduating from Gateway High School.

In addition to the scholarship recipients, the following students also were honored at an awards ceremony at the high school May 16: Allyssa Anderson was the recipient of the Pittsburgh Technical Institute Art & Design Award; Aaron Barlow received the John F.
