'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.

Noteworthy: Do won the City Theatre 2014 Young Playwrights Festival contest. She was one of three middle-school division winners. The award means her one-act play, “Cologne,” will be staged in a City Theatre production. Before the play's performances on Oct. 4 and 5, Do will work with theater professionals to revise her play for the stage and take part in several rehearsals. Do's play tells the story of Sophia, whose memory is altered in a car crash, and the attempts by her husband, Christian, a soldier who returns home from war, to jog her memory.
