'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 faith-based, Lawrence County homeless shelter for men has agreed to pay the government $5,000 and modify its “no pets” policy to allow people with disabilities to be accompanied by their service animals, according to federal court documents.

U.S. District Judge Cathy Bissoon last week approved a consent order settling a discrimination complaint the Department of Housing and Urban Development filed in June 2013 against City Rescue Mission of New Castle.

HUD sued the mission for denying a bed to Kenneth DeFiore, who is blind, because of his seeing-eye dog.
