'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.

ATRP Solutions Inc. said it won $2.6 million in federal grants to help it commercialize technology that could make it less expensive and easier to make cosmetics, shampoo and other personal care products.

ATRP Solutions, based in Harmar, received two Small Business Innovation Research grants for its work on Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization technology, which was developed at Carnegie Mellon University.

The company has received $1.1 million of the total award.
