'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.

Warm reception

Thank you to all the people of the Connellsville area who came out recently to The Ice Mine to see the fundraising game between the Ice Miners Alumni and coaches and the Pittsburgh Celebrity Hockey Team. It was my first game with the Pittsburgh team and my first time at this rink.

I was so impressed with how warmly we were welcomed by the Ice Miners Amateur Hockey Association — from the water and Gatorade in the locker room to the lovely spread of food afterward (by Hartsek Family Catering — what great fried chicken).

If you haven't checked out this facility and classy organization, you should. Maybe even make a donation.

I wish them the best and look forward to coming back.
