Newsmaker: Rebecca LaBovick, 44, of Plum was has been selected as the 2013 recipient of the Health Care for the Homeless Clinicians' Network Outstanding Service Award

'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.
