'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.

Children ages 10 and younger are invited to a birthday celebration for Dr. Seuss on Sunday, from 2 to 4 p.m., in the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard.

The free event, sponsored by the borough's Parks and Recreation Committee, will celebrate Dr. Seuss's 110th birthday and the importance of reading.

Children will listen to their favorite Dr. Seuss stories, participate in hands-on-activities and enjoy treats. There is no charge, and children must be accompanied by an adult.

St. Paul's Meals on Wheels is in need of volunteers.

Sign-ups for those wanting to play baseball or softball for the Pitcairn Baseball/Softball Association will be held Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. at Fire Hall No. 1, 100 South Center Ave.
