'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.

The Mario Lemieux Foundation will celebrate the start of hockey season in unique fashion.

A 6.6K run will take place on Sunday, October 6. The race will begin and finish at Consol Energy Center, with the to-be-determined course weaving through the streets of downtown Pittsburgh, and will benefit multiple charities.

A one-mile “family walk” will also be offered for those who would like to participate in a less grueling activity.

Lemieux, the Penguins co-owner and former great, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease in January of 1993, and has since spent considerable energy toward aiding cancer research.

Proceeds will benefit the cancer and patient care initiatives of the Mario Lemieux Foundation and the youth hockey initiatives of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.
