'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.

On Saturday, members of Sewickley Presbyterian Church performed a play 100 years in the making ... 75 years later.

In celebration of the church's 175th anniversary, parishioners staged “One Hundred Years Ago” — a play written for the church's 100th anniversary event held in 1938.

Written by Isabel Booth, the play focuses on the founding of the church on Feb. 17, 1838.

The event culminated the church's yearlong celebration.
