'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.

The renaming of Brookline Regional Catholic as St. John Bosco Academy takes effect July 1, Diocese of Pittsburgh officials announced Thursday.

St. John Bosco will serve five new parishes: Saint Catherine of Siena in Beechview, Saint Mary of the Mount in Mt. Washington, Prince of Peace in South Side, Saint Pamphilus in Beechview and Saint John Vianney in Allentown. The school also will continue to serve Saint Pius, Resurrection and Our Lady of Loretto parishes. The diocese previously announced the renaming for next school year.

The new model allows neighboring parishes without schools to formally assist in recruiting, marketing, governing and financial support for the school, the diocese said. St. John Bosco will be the fourth school in the diocese to operate that way.

Brookline Regional Catholic has about 180 students in Pre-K through eighth grade. It formed in 1995 when Saint Pius, Resurrection and Our Lady of Loreto each closed its parish grade school and consolidated at the Saint Pius site.
