Tammy Helman, 42, of Monroeville was named a judge by the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation for the Terri Lynne Lokoff/Children’s TYLENOL® National Child Care Teacher Awards.

'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.
