'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.

Butler County Commissioners on Tuesday proposed a 2014 budget that keeps property taxes flat.

The $194.7 million budget keeps the millage rate at 24.628, with the property tax millage at 20.688. Property owners also pay a 3.94-mill property tax that goes toward county debt.

A vote on the budget is scheduled for Dec. 31.
