'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.

Greensburg Central Catholic will hold its 16th annual auction gala from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. on March 31 at the school on Armory Drive in Carbon.

The "Making a Bid for Our Future" event will honor Robert S. Butler as the 2012 Distinguished Centurion.

The award is given to an alumnus for service to the church and community.

Butler, a member of the Class of 1965, went on to earn a degree in business administration/management from Robert Morris University. Now retired, he is the former owner of Irwin Plaza Beer Distributor.

Butler has maintained ties to Greensburg Central as the longtime clock operator for football and basketball games. He also volunteers on the Project Central Campaign steering committee.

He has served as a volunteer and coach for the Special Olympics of Westmoreland County for more than 30 years.
