'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 country's four biggest cellphone companies are set to start their first joint advertising campaign against texting while driving, uniting behind AT&T's “It Can Wait” slogan to blanket TV and radio this summer.

AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile will be joined by 200 other organizations backing the multimillion-dollar ad campaign.

Beyond TV and radio ads, the campaign will include displays on Goodyear's three blimps, store displays, community events, social-media outreach and a national tour of a driving simulator.
