'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.

Shady Side Academy Middle School finished first in its division of the 2014 Pennsylvania Science Olympiad State Finals at Juniata College.

The team will compete in the national tournament at the University of Central Florida in Orlando on May 16-17. The state competition brought more than 1,000 high school and middle school students to the Juniata campus on Friday.

Teams qualified by being among top finishers at regional competitions. The competition challenges students' deductive and reasoning skills.

The Science Olympiad, a nonprofit organization, was founded to improve the quality of science education, increase student interest in science and recognize outstanding achievement in science education.
