'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.

Ben Adams, 3, of Gibsonia, was born with cataracts and a rare brain malformation called polymicrogyria, which has caused developmental delays, but through therapy and conductive education classes, he has made strides that his family and doctors are surprised to see.

The Adams family plans to raise funds to continue to send Ben to the classes through the second Blessings for Benjamin Spaghetti Dinner Benefit on Sunday, Nov. 18, from 1 to 5 p.m. at St. Victor Church, 527 Bairdford Road.

The event will feature pasta and dessert, auctions, raffles and prizes. Tickets cost $10. Children ages 2 and younger eat for free.

To purchase tickets in advance or for more information contact 412-720-4540 or www.blessingsfor benjamin.com.
