'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.

Donora native Larry Price may live on the West Coast, but his heart still beats for the Mon Valley.

That's why he has kept his promise to never forget his roots now that he owns a successful company, CaliGold Entertainment.

Price will bring a lineup of his company's rising rap starts for a special concert, “Mon Valley Spring Explosion,” from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. April 6 at the Donora Borough Building, Sixth and Meldon Ave.

Tickets for the over-21 show are $10 and available at the door.

Performers include CaliGold rappers J.Gib, Kid Malvo, BLee, Donora artist Killa, Monessen's DaKru and Pittsburgh “music legend,” Tuffy Tuff. DJ Smoke will also spin music.

Price said J.Gib's new single, “Body,” debuted at No. 5 on radio's New Music Server Chart and can be downloaded on iTunes.

Price created CaliGold Entertainment to showcase music artists and his CaliGold clothing line, and to promote and support softball and basketball teams near his home and the company's headquarters in Sacramento, Calif.

He is a 1981 Ringgold High School graduate and a 1986 Edinboro University graduate.

He launched CaliGold-East to provide a launching pad for musical artists in the East, including the Mon Valley.

Price said his trip back to his hometown will also include an assembly at Ringgold High School and Ringgold Middle School on April 5. Caligold's security director, Kurt Wells, a 1980 Ringgold graduate, will be participating in the assembly.

During the assembly, Price will present the first Caligold Entertainment scholarship to a Ringgold student pursuing music.

Prior to the concert, Price will be dropping by local establishments for a meet and greet with friends and family.

“I will never forget where I came from and how hard it took to get to this point where I am at, which is why our motto is ‘From Nothing to Something,'” Price said.
