'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.

Target has announced more steps in its efforts to regain shoppers' trust from the pre-Christmas data breach.

The Minneapolis-based retailer said Tuesday that it named outsider Bob DeRodes, who has 40 years of experience in information technology, as its chief information officer. He replaces Beth Jacob, who abruptly left in early March.

DeRodes has been a senior information technology adviser for the Center for CIO Leadership, the Department of Homeland Security, the secretary of Defense and the Department of Justice. He will assume oversight of the company's technology team and operations, effective May 5.

The nation's third-largest retailer announced that MasterCard Inc. will provide its branded credit and debit cards with the more secure chip-and-PIN technology that it said will be coming out next year. That will make Target the first major U.S. retailer that will have its own branded cards with this technology, experts say.
