'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
Saturday, July 20, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

On July 2, on our front sidewalk, we had two white boxes and one small cardboard box for the Vietnam Veterans Association to pick up. Someone decided that they would help themselves to the boxes and took them.

My wife and I support veterans all of the time. I pray that whoever took those boxes really needed what was inside.

The veterans could have used it. There was a sign on the boxes noting they were for the veterans association.

The pickup people came that afternoon and asked where the pickup was.

What a disappointment to us when we found out they did not get the boxes.

The Rev. Madison & June Stringfellow
