'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.

Hewlett-Packard Co. has agreed to pay $32.5 million to settle allegations it overcharged the Postal Service for products over more than eight years.

In the dispute, the Postal Service alleged that HP failed to comply with pricing terms of its contract with the Postal Service, including a requirement that HP provide prices that were no greater than those offered to its other customers with comparable contracts.

The Justice Department said the claims resolved by the settlement are allegations only, and there's been no determination of liability.
