'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.

Laurel: To The Westmoreland Museum of American Art. A ground-breaking ceremony Friday marks the start of a major expansion that will include a new wing to be built on the North Maple Avenue side of the building. It's part of an ambitious $38 million campaign, for which $17.6 million already has been raised or pledged.

Organizers put the crowd estimate at 150,000 — which shows that despite the weather's vagaries, this outdoor fest is as popular as ever.

Lance: To challenged motorists. When the skies opened up early Wednesday and dumped a monsoon on Greater Pittsburgh, some motorists thought they could plow through the floodwaters. They learned the hard way. Driving through floodwaters never is smart.
