'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.

Mars Area Primary Center joined the fight against breast cancer with the “Think Pink” fundraiser Oct. 7-11 to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Students in kindergarten and first grade wore pink to school to show their support for the cause, which raised $1,338.40, according to the district.
