'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.

It's so hot that the heat stroke-stricken Pittsburgh Steelers are going to try to find a way to blame parking lot magnate Merrill Stabile — who spoke truth to garbage about the Kenny Chesney concert mess — for star center Maurkice Pouncey posing in a “Free Hernandez” cap (a reference to former New England Patriots star and accused killer Aaron Hernandez).

Wait, it's not a mirage! These Pirates are the real deal! Here's to a second half of the season better than the first and a long-awaited return to the playoffs. Keep those Green Weenies handy.
