'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.

BP PLC says cleanup work is ending in three of the states affected by the company's 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The London-based oil giant on Monday said that the Coast Guard is concluding “active cleanup operations” in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, but the work is ongoing along 84 miles of Louisiana's shoreline.

The Coast Guard will continue to respond to reports of oil washing up anywhere along the Gulf Coast. BP says it will take responsibility for removing any oil that from its blown-out Macondo well.

The company says it has spent more than $14 billion on response and cleanup activities.
