'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.

Smashed angel

I have lived on Dallas Avenue in Harrison for 12 years. A few months before she died, my mom gave me an angel statue that she had in her yard. I put the angel in my yard and smiled every time I saw it because it reminded me of my mom.

Last summer, someone stole the angel, but it was returned a few days later. But on Dec. 22, I found my angel smashed in the middle of the street. It may have meant nothing to the vandal, but it was very sentimental to me.

I have a hard time believing anyone would do that at any time of the year, let alone three days before Christmas.
