'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.

Each year, the staff at the Sewickley Herald has the difficult task of deciding who to select as our Man, Woman and Citizen of the Year.

As evidenced by the number of nominations we've received, we know there is no shortage of people who do so much for the community and who are deserving of this award.

Thank you to all who took the time to nominate someone in the community to be awarded our 2012 Man, Woman and Citizen of the Year.

After much consideration, the Herald staff is pleased to announce this year's honorees.

• For his dedication and unwavering support of the Sewickley community, Doug Florey has been named the Sewickley Herald 2012 Man of the Year. He is executive director of the Laughlin Center and has spearheaded the Sewickley Nonprofit Consortium to give area organizations a place to pool ideas and have discussions.

Maria Swanson has been selected as Woman of the Year.

The Sewickley resident has been active in several organizations in the area, including Sewickley Public Library, Girl Scouts, Sewickley Tree Commission, Quaker Valley Marching Band Parents and Trowel and Error Garden Club.

Gary Chace has been named Citizen of the Year.

The Edgeworth resident has been known to “drop everything at a moment's notice” to volunteer at St. James Parish, Sweetwater Center for the Arts, Villa St. Joseph and Girls Hope in Baden. He also serves on the board at Heritage Valley.

In upcoming issues, the Sewickley Herald will feature stories detailing the lives and works of the honorees.

Then, join us in honoring them at the Edgeworth Club for our annual Sewickley Herald honors dinner on April 19.
