'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.

Sominex Syndrome: That seems to be what hit the Pittsburgh Penguins in the third game of their Stanley Cup series with the Ottawa Senators. The Pens were ready to go up three games to none in the best-of-seven series — just under 90 seconds remained, they led 1-0, and they were a man up on a power play.

Ready, set, launch!: Just in time for the Memorial Day weekend, it's National Safe Boating Week. And with Allegheny County among the highest in the nation for registered boats, it's a great opportunity to run down the Coast Guard checklist of safe-boating practices. Among the most common violations — malfunctioning lights and life vests still wrapped in plastic. Enjoy the water — safely.

Ready, set, fly!: Speaking of Memorial Day, isn't it about time you went to the basement to find Old Glory? It's the perfect way to show that you solemnly remember those who gave their last full measure in defense of the liberties we enjoy today. Yes, find your Stars and Stripes today, make sure it's in good working order — neither soiled nor torn — and fly it high and proud.
