'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 Monroeville Area of Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for the ninth annual Celebrate Monroeville event.

The Sept. 19 celebration — which will take place at the Monroeville Convention Center from 4 to 8:30 p.m. — will feature samples from local restaurants in the Taste of Monroeville showcase, while the Marketplace Monroeville will feature local businesses' products and services.

Scheduled on the performance stage this year are the Gateway High School marching band, Gateway cheerleaders and the Lily Wine Affair. Also, a cast of mascots and costumed characters will circulate throughout the exhibit hall.

More than 250 merchants and restaurant vendors have signed on to participate. Last year, more than 3,000 people attended.

Admission is $10 for adults and $7 for students and people over the age of 62. One extra “taste” ticket will be awarded to attendees who support the food drive.

Free additional parking and shuttle service will be available in the Monroeville Mall parking lot across from Goodyear Tire, adjacent to Macy's.

For more information, call 412-856-0622.
