'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 Butler County Community College satellite campus will close on the first day of final exams next week because of threats found written in a men's bathroom stall.

College officials said the threats were found Tuesday, April 29, at the school's Lawrence Crossing facility in Union Township, Lawrence County.

The facility was closed for the rest of that day the threats were found, even though the threats indicate the bombing or shooting will occur next Tuesday, May 6.

School spokeswoman Susan Changnon says students must contact professors about where and when to take exams scheduled for that day.

Changnon says the FBI advised the school to either beef up security or close for the day.
