'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/Monroeville Lions Club 5K Run for Sight and 1 Mile Fun Walk will fill the streets of Pitcairn with runners and walkers Saturday.

More than 100 runners and walkers will line up at 10 a.m. at the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard for the start of the race. They'll proceed down Broadway, up Wall Avenue and continue past Sugar Camp.

Awards will be presented to the top three male and female 5K finishers and to various age-group winners. No prizes will be awarded to walkers.

There will be food for participants before and after the race.

Participants can register at the Park Building the day of the race. The registration fee for runners is $17 and $15 for walkers. Proceeds will benefit people with impaired vision.


It was a boo-tiful day for a Halloween parade in Pitcairn on Saturday. Many girls and boys — and some parents, too — donned their costumes and participated in Fire Company No. 2's annual event.

Prizes were awarded to the following children for their great costumes: Dustin Sehswer, pumpkin scarecrow; Locklyn Amburst, lamb; and Brayden Baumhardt, farmer.

After the parade, the children were invited into the Park Building for the Parks and Recreation Committee's harvest festival, at which many community organizations handed out treats and provided activities.

Congratulations to Patrick Sproull, who was the winner of Camp G's Pumpkin of Fun.

The rec committee would like to thank everyone who helped to make the event fun for everyone.

Hoagie sale

The local Rainbow Girls chapter is selling hoagies, with delivery set for Saturday.

Turkey and Italian hoagies are available for $6 each.

Both types are topped with American and provolone cheese and come on a Barone's Italian bun.

Pickles, onions and lettuce are included and bagged separately.

To order, call 412-818-2161.


The Pitcairn Democratic Committee will hold a Meet the Candidates rally Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard.

The rally gives citizens the opportunity to meet the endorsed candidates who will be on the Democratic ballot on Tuesday.

There will be music, sandwiches, refreshments and door prizes.

A $5 donation will be collected at the door.

Thank you

Members of the Pitcairn Woman's Club thank everyone who attended their Pancake Breakfast last Sunday.

Proceeds from the breakfast will support the club's scholarship program.

Congratulations to Joann Pomper, who won the Tastefully Simple basket.
