'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.

Twinkies are making an early comeback at Wal-Mart stores.

The world's largest retailer said it started selling the snack cakes at about 1,600 stores on Friday and that about 3,000 of its 4,000 stores across the nation should have them by Sunday morning, a day before Hostess had said the cakes would start hitting shelves nationwide.

By late next week, stores also will have Hostess Mini Muffins and fried Fruit Pies, said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Veronica Marshall. Coffee Cakes, Ho Hos, Orange CupCakes, Suzy Qs and Zingers will be available by August. Sno-Balls will arrive in the fall.

“We've been working with them now for several months to have them available exclusive early,” Marshall said.
