'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.

In Sydney's support

Our family offers a huge thank-you to all those who organized and volunteered to work the spaghetti-dinner benefit on May 11 for our 4-year-old daughter, Sydney. Your generous consideration of our needs and wanting to do something to help us after her initial Leukemia diagnosis proved to be amazing.

We would also like to thank all of those who donated gift baskets for the Chinese auction, the local businesses and vendors that contributed various foods and supplies to support the event, as well as the fine folks who gave of their time to prepare cakes and other baked goods. We can't begin to thank all of you enough for your unbelievable acts of kindness and generosity.

Finally, to all of those who attended the dinner and have continued to provide our family with monetary donations, we are so grateful, from the bottom of our hearts, for your thoughtful support and well wishes. It is truly a blessing to know that we are in the minds and hearts of a many from the Scottdale and surrounding communities, and we simply ask for your continued prayers as Sidney continues her lengthy recovery from Leukemia

Sidney is making progress each day, and if you are interested to follow her as she fights her battle against this awful disease, visit youcaring.com/other/help-sydney-s-parents-please-/59664 or youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-sydney-please-/54813.
