'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.

Safety equipment manufacturer MSA is honoring first responders by donating 237 tickets to the “Baseball, Bands and Boom” event July 4 at Pullman Park in Butler.

MSA's donation will enable first responders and their families to be admitted free to the Butler Blue Sox game, concert and the fireworks display that night, said Butler Fire Chief Nick Ban. The tickets are being distributed by the Butler County Fire Chief's Association, he said.

MSA donated one ticket for each year of the nation's independence, the company said in a statement. On July 4, the United States will celebrate 237 years since the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

“The fact that they're recognizing the first responders on the historic birthday is incredible and a very nice event,” Ban said.

MSA spokesman Mark Deasy said in a statement that the company was pleased to make the holiday special for first responders, with whom MSA has had a long-standing partnership.

MSA, headquartered in Cranberry, manufactures and distributes safety products for both fire and law enforcement personnel.
