'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.

Frontier Airlines is adding a fee for carry-on bags and plans to start charging $2 for soda and coffee.

The new carry-on fee announced Wednesday will be $25 if paid in advance and $100 if paid at the gate. It applies to bags in the overhead bin, so small bags under the seat still will be free.

Passengers who buy their tickets on the airline's website won't have to pay.

Frontier says the carry-on fee will take effect this summer; it will announce a specific date later.

The drink fee will begin July 1. Water still will be free.

Spirit Airlines Inc. began charging a carry-on fee three years ago.

Frontier's parent, Republic Airways Holdings Inc., is trying to fix Frontier's finances and sell it.
