'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.

Dollar General Corp. Chief Executive Officer Rick Dreiling plans to retire in 2015, according to a statement on Friday.

Dreiling, 60, plans to step down as CEO by May 30 or whenever a successor is hired, according to the statement.

Dollar General is seen as a potential acquirer of rival Family Dollar Stores Inc., which investor Carl Icahn has said should put itself up for sale.

Dreiling's departure throws a wrench into Icahn's proposal, analysts said.

Dollar General fell 7.3 percent to $57.19 at the close in New York, the biggest daily decline since June 2013.
