'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.

Hundreds of people shared plants and gardening tips during the Harmony Museum's Herb and Garden Fair at the museum's historic barn in Butler County on June 8.

More than 300 people participated in the plant exchange, trading annuals and perennials from their gardens with others, said Kathy Luek, the museum's administrator.

Attendance was down a bit compared to last year, Luek said, a consequence of the cool spring and late start to the growing season.

“We were happy because most of the plants were exchanged,” she said.

On hand were members of the Butler County Master Gardeners to share advice on selecting and caring for plants. There also were several vendors and plenty of food, Luek said.

Local bakers brought 10 to 15 different pies, everything from rhubarb to pecan.

“It was tough to make a decision,” Luek said.
