'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.

Hip Hop heavyweights Drake and Lil Wayne are co-headlining a Street Fighter video game-themed summer tour that allows fans to determine who opens and who will ‘win' the show by using a smart phone app to send power ups for either rapper.

Lil Wayne was selected as the Pittsburgh opener, performing three songs atop the second tier of the stage before handing the mic to Drake. The tour, which kicked off Aug. 8, is scheduled to hit 31 cities through September 27.
