Photos: Sewickley Valley tries to beat heat

Kristina Serafini | Sewickley Herald - Sarah Reid, 11, of Edgeworth hands a customer a cup of lemonade as her brother Mason, 7, looks on Wednesday, July 17, 2013. The siblings said they were taking advantage of the heat and humidity by selling the cold lemonade to passersby at the corner of Beaver Road and Edgeworth Lane in Edgeworth to save money for electronic devices. Sarah said her father, a personal trainer, suggested including the low calorie count on the sign.

'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.

Temperatures soared last week and the humidity raged on, but folks in the Sewickley Valley found ways to stay cool at the splash pad in Leetsdale and with lemonade.
