'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.

Chobani plans to expand beyond its Greek yogurt cups in the summer as it faces intensifying competition in the fast-growing category.

In July, the company plans to offer Chobani Oats, yogurt mixed with fruit and oats; a dessert called Chobani Indulgent; and new flavors for kids.

Later this year, the Norwich, N.Y.-based company will introduce savory dips, Chief Marketing Officer Peter McGuinness said. Chobani has been testing such offerings at its cafe in New York City's SoHo neighborhood.

The privately held company is the biggest seller of Greek yogurt in the country. But competition has been increasing, with General Mills and Danone investing more heavily in their Greek yogurt brands.

Whole Foods recently decided to stop carrying Chobani to make room for other Greek yogurt alternatives.
