'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.

Letter to the Editor

Regarding The Associated Press news story “Mercy killer shown same mercy from judge” (March 30 and TribLIVE.com): How appalling that George Sanders had to make the excruciating decision to kill his own wife. He truly must have loved her very much and should not have even been charged with a crime.

Why can't we do for our beloved family members what we are permitted to do for our pets?

There should be euthanasia/suicide clinics (along the lines of abortion clinics) that people can utilize. There is a difference between “giving up” and knowing when one has had enough.
