'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.

Geibel Catholic Junior-Senior High School, along with acting and music teacher Nick Bell, are helping area youth experience the performing arts this summer.

Bell is offering two performing arts camps at the school this month. Bell said among other things, students will learn acting terms, improvisation, pantomime and will be doing some dancing and singing.

“We try to incorporate every part of the performing arts that we can in five days, for three hours a day, so we get through a lot and have a lot of fun,” Bell said.

This is the second year the camps will be offered at the school.

Tina Haky of McClellandtown sent her daughter Katie, 13, to the camp last year. Haky said her daughter enjoyed the camp so much she will return this year.

“She really enjoyed the improvisation,” Haky said. “I think she got a great exposure to a lot of different types of music and a lot of different types of kids.”

Katie Cantanzarite, 18, of McClellandtown also attended last year's camp. Cantanzarite, who graduated from Geibel this year, said she attended the camp because she was involved in the musicals at the school.

“He did a lot of exercises that helped with the musicals, and he brought in a choreographer and we danced and it really helped me,” she said.

Bell said the camps are open to all children in the area in the fourth through 12 grades regardless of what school they attend.

“The camps are for any child who would like to come and learn about the performing arts,” Bell said.

The first camp for students entering grades 9-12 will be held July 15-19. The second camp for students entering grades 4-8 will be held July 22-26.

Both camps are held at Geibel from 9 a.m. to noon each day.

The cost for each camp is $50 for the week.

Those interested in signing up for either camp can call the school at 724-628-5600 or email Bell at nbell@geibelcatholic.org.
