'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.

The Remi Savioz Glut1 Foundation will hold its second annual Valentine's Day 5K and 5 Miler on Saturday in North Park.

The rain-or-shine race for runners of all ages and experience levels starts at 10 a.m. at the North Park boathouse. The top three finishers in the male and female divisions will be recognized.

Remi Savioz, 13, of Franklin Park, was diagnosed with the rare brain disease Glucose Transporter Type 1 Deficiency Syndrome, at age 8. The foundation in Savioz's name funds research, awareness and education of RSG1 and other diseases affected by glucose transporters.

Registration is $20 per runner by Friday at midnight or $40 after. Runners can register at www.valentinesday5k.kintera.org .
