'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.

Billionaire Warren Buffett spent Monday listening to business pitches from a select group of children, but the ideas aren't likely to generate new acquisitions for Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate.

The youngsters, who are between 7 and 16, are finalists in a contest tied to “The Secret Millionaire's Club,” a cartoon narrated by Buffett that teaches children about finance. The cartoon airs on the Hub cable network and online at www.smckids.com.

Five children and three teams were flown to Omaha to present their ideas to Buffett and the judges. The finalists are from Maryland, Maine, Texas, New Jersey, Ohio, Kentucky and Washington.

The winning individual and team each receive $5,000. Runners-up get $500.
