'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.

Vandergrift reunion

I had the absolute pleasure of attending the all-class Vandergrift High School Reunion on June 22 at the Clarion Hotel in New Kensington. It was fantastic!

This was no small undertaking by the committee, which was headed by Kathy Starr. If the committee overlooked a single detail, I have no idea what it might have been.

There were more than 500 people in attendance and we were able to leisurely walk about and visit with old friends and classmates without feeling like sardines in a can.

We spent an absolutely wonderful evening reminiscing with friends, high school chums and relatives about the good old days — the stories went on forever.

There were classmates dating back to 1938 up through the last class, 1964. I'm fairly certain every class year was represented. Some classmates traveled quite a distance — my brother came from Naples, Fla. — to attend.

The only possible complaint might be this: I hear there are no plans for any more of these reunions. That would be the sad news.

To Kathy Starr and all of the committee members: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a wonderful evening of walking down memory lane with some really great friends and classmates. I certainly hope you recover and decide to do it again in three years.
