'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.

Two contests again will be part of this year's Sugar Plum Days festivities.

A house-decorating contest is being coordinated by the Sugar Plum Days Committee.

There is no entry fee.

Winners will be selected in the categories of regular criteria and “Griswold Award” criteria.

The award in the regular-criteria category goes to the most traditionally decorated house. The Griswold award goes to the most unusually decorated house.

A wreath decorating contest also will be coordinated by the Sugar Plum Days Committee.

There is no entry fee.

Finished wreaths will be displayed at the library during regular hours. Judging will be by popular vote. Anyone may visit the library and vote for a favorite wreath.

Ribbons and prizes for first ($50), second ($30) and third ($15) places will be awarded to the winners.

Winners will be announced at the Borough Building at 7 p.m. Dec. 15.

Decorated wreaths should be taken to the library by 8 p.m. Dec. 10. Voting will take place from Dec. 11 to 15.
