'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.

Hampton Township School District will again have a gymnastics team.

In an 8-1 vote, with Larry Vasko dissenting, the school board approved the reinstatement of the high school gymnastics program on Monday night. The approval was met with applause by the audience of Hampton gymnasts and parents at the school board meeting last night.

Athletic director Bill Cardone and the athletics department presented a proposal to administrators for the gymnastics program after it identified 12 to 15 girls who are interested in a district team. The school district had a team in the 1970s and 1980s before it disbanded.

In recent years, the school district has sponsored individual athletes to compete, representing Hampton, in WPIAL and PIAA meets.

Cardone said there is money in the athletics budget to support a team now, and that the district would need to hire a coach before the season starts on Nov. 18. Practices and home meets would be held at Jewart's Gymnastics, in Hampton.
