'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.

A Day of Prayer for youth is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in Homewood at the old Kentucky Fried Chicken parking lot on the corner of Frankstown and Homewood avenues.

Organizers are asking folks to bang drums, blow horns and play other musical instruments at 1 p.m. to signal the beginning of prayer for youths.

Chad Johnson, chaplain for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Mel Blount, former Steeler and founder of The Mel Blount Youth Home of Pennsylvania, are scheduled to appear. Call Oliver Dent at 412-425-1567 if you're interested in playing an instrument.

Organizer Shirley Jones Douglas said she asked bars and other businesses in the area to turn down their music at 1 p.m. Saturday to pray and all said they would.
