'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.

A Beaver County couple married Saturday during grand opening festivities at the Cranberry Field & Stream.

Mehgan Cook and Charlie Miller, both 26, of White got a surprise after exchanging vows when Willie Robertson, of the reality TV show “Duck Dynasty,” appeared.

The couple arranged to move the wedding to the store after learning Robertson would be there on Saturday, but Cook and Miller didn't know that he would show up at their wedding.

Cook and Miller are fans of “Duck Dynasty,” which chronicles the duck call business of Robertson's family, based out of West Monroe, La. The A&E unscripted reality show returned for its fourth season last week, with 11.8 million viewers tuning in. That was the largest nonseries telecast in cable TV history, according to the network.

Robertson said Cook and Miller, who incorporated camouflage clothing into their wedding gear, were “my kind of folks.”
