'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.

More than 90,000 lights will sparkle around Sewickley Friday night as the town gets set to ring in the holiday season with its annual Light Up Night event.

Leading up to the 4 p.m. start, the town's two main roads — Beaver and Broad streets — closed in the central business district around noon.

Around 2:30 p.m., several vehicles still were parked along meters in areas where signs indicated no parking was permitted.

The following is a breakdown of information for tonight's event.
