'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.

Greater Pittsburgh Dek Hockey officials are organizing their first-ever summer tournament, set to kick off this weekend in Penn Hills.

Summer Jam 2013 will take place July 12 to 14 at the Olympic Swim & Health Club, located at 517 Twin Oak Drive. The tournament will feature four adult divisions including coed teams, three men's divisions and children's divisions, according to tournament organizer Chris Sinclair of Penn Hills.

“We go and play in tournaments all over the place: Philly, Niagara Falls and other places,” said Sinclair, who runs the youth leagues for Greater Pittsburgh Dek Hockey and also plays on an adult team. “Mark Madden has a tournament here in Pittsburgh, but we decided we wanted to host our own.”

In addition to the dek hockey action, the Olympic Swim & Health Club pool will be open to players and their families, and there will be a pig roast and a concession stand.

The tournament is open to the public.

“It will be a nice event for the whole weekend,” Sinclair said.
