'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 Kings of Leon show scheduled for Aug. 29 at First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown has been cancelled.

On Aug. 26, the band announced that two more shows, including the Pittsburgh date and one Aug. 28 in Holmdel, N.J., had been added to the nine already cancelled after drummer Nathan Followill was injured earlier this month.

Followill broke some ribs when the band's tour bus was forced to stop abruptly to avoid hitting a pedestrian who jumped in front of the bus after a show in Boston. A doctor has ordered Followill to rest for one more week, according to a news release.

The band is now scheduled to return to the road on Aug. 31 to headline the Budweiser Made in America Festival in Philadelphia.

Refunds for ticket holders will be available at point of purchase. Details: 800-745-3000 or www.livenation.com
