'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.

Sweet dreams

“5001: A Baby Odyssey” was the theme of this year's Let Them Eat Cake! decorating and tasting contest hosted by The Midwife Center for Birth & Women's Health on May 18, a nod to the arrival of the center's 5,000th baby since it opened in 1982.

Maureen Joyce (Oakmont Bakery), Aundrea Ambeliotis (Mediterra Bakehouse), Sumi Chun (Sumi's Cakery), Naiara Freitas (Naiara's Cakes), Tara Newhouse (Crave), Christine Sullivan, Helena Nichols, Carrie Quinn and Jessica Earhart were among the pros and amateurs tempting the masses out of good behavior, although judging by the fast and furious slicing, not much arm-twisting was required.

“There's something about cake that everybody loves,” offered Nora Peace as she made her way past multitiered works of edible art.

Also spotted were board prexy Bethany Davidson, executive director Christine Haas, panel judge Chuck Kerber with Camera Bartolotta, and emcee Tom Baker.
