'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 Midwestern Intermediate Unit 4 board of directors gave preliminary approval on Wednesday night to changes in how employees can use IU credit cards and submit expenses for payment.

The changes come in the wake of Cecelia Yauger's resignation in April as executive director after she charged private dinners and personal expenses to her IU credit card. The intermediate unit serves school districts in Butler, Lawrence and Mercer counties.

The changes are intended to help the IU keep better track of expenses submitted by employees for reimbursement, officials said.

The board would have a month to amend the proposal before taking a final vote in June.

Officials said an audit is still being conducted on Yauger's credit card statements to determine which were valid for IU business.
