'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.

Children could learn about how robots and humans are similar and different during “Robots vs. Humans,” a program Marshall Township Parks & Recreation offered at the municipal building during local schools' winter vacation.

Participants explored the science of robotics; learn to sense, think and act like a robot; and watched the action robots. The Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh provided the instruction.
