'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.

Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013, 9:01 p.m.
 

After 12 years, the Quiet Storm will leave its location at 5430 Penn Ave., Friendship, by the end of October.

According to the eatery's Facebook page, owners are “looking for a fresh start, whether it be in a new home, as a partner to an existing establishment, in a yurt, or on wheels.”

The cafe, specializing in vegetarian and vegan fare, has been recognized as a business that helped contribute to the revitalization of the city's East End.
