'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.

Lots of laughs, food and drinks — and all new performers — will highlight Whitehall Borough Recreation Board's sixth annual “Winter Blues Comedy Cure.”

The event, set for Feb. 23 at Salvatore's in Baldwin Borough, will include comedy routines by headliner Bill Benden, as seen on HBO and Comedy Central, and featured performer Lionel Hamilton of BET's “Evening at the Apollo.” WDVE's Mike Wysocki will host.

“It's really something that everyone can enjoy. It's clean comedy — things people can relate to,” said Whitehall recreation director Kelly Joyce.

The cost is $40 per person for dinner and the show, or $25 for only the show.

Last year, the comedy event sold out for the first time, Joyce said. Tickets again this year are going fast.

The program includes a buffet dinner and complimentary draft beer and soft drinks. There also are door prizes and raffles showcased during the night, Joyce said.

The comedy show is one of the recreation board's only fundraisers of the year, Joyce said. Money raised helps to support free Whitehall events.
