'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

I did not realize the importance of train whistles and horns until the responses to my recent letter about them were published in the paper.

The railroads should consider modifying how they sound warnings, perhaps a longer, single blast as opposed to repeated ones or maybe three short toots. Either would be better for when the trains travel through residential areas.
