'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.

Commonplace Coffee Co., with three Western Pennsylvania shops, won $10,000 from payment technology company Square and Visa Inc., following a contest that tracked numbers of customers who used smartphones to make purchases via Square Wallet.

San Francisco-based Square announced 20 winners Thursday of its Square Wallet Challenge, designed to support small business growth.

Businesses can process payments using iPhone, iPad and Android devices using the free Square Register point-of-sale program. Customers buying coffee or other items, meanwhile, use an app on their devices to find local businesses and pay.

Commonplace Coffee has locations in Garfield, Squirrel Hill and Indiana, Pa. Winning businesses also got four Visa gift cards, worth $250 each, for employees.
