'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.

Thanks for your views

I would like to express my appreciation to the editorial staff of the Valley News Dispatch for a few things.

1. For quickly printing letters to make sure they remain topical and meaningful and for doing an excellent job in editing them. Whenever you edit my letters, I am usually pleased that you have not destroyed its substance or its overall intent.

2. For printing an editorial page that I think is rather unique. Almost all of the writers are well respected (my favorite is Pat Buchanan) and present cogent arguments with good rationale, even though for the most part, they have a conservative opinion. You are not shy about printing articles that do not always coincide with the Republican Party and its tenets.

3. You are not loath to print articles critical of your own editorial opinions.

Thank you for putting out such a great editorial page, which is not only of great quality, but does a good job of correcting the mainstream orthodoxy of the day. I look forward to reading your newspaper, and particularly the editorial page, which I feel outshines most of the newspapers and that is, perhaps, the biggest reason they are a dying breed.
