'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.

Proud of Rams

I wish to express a sincere thank you to everyone who put forth such a wonderful effort this year for the Highlands Golden Rams football team.

The team put in long hours all season and I hope they appreciate all of the good resulting from those efforts.

It is sad to eventually lose, but in losing, our boys have learned the most important lesson in life: Not everything is going to be the way you had hoped. Our team was outsized, but did not let that alter their determination — for that I am proud.

These players encouraged each other and truly believed that they were the best they could be. You cannot ask for more from one another. The friendships and special moments shared will linger for years and become a time they cherish and talk about for many years.

The team was supported in its efforts by fellow students, parents, coaches, teachers and Highlands fans. I thank all of them for the time they took from their daily lives to enjoy the football season.

With love and support, we helped Highlands achieve great success.

We are so very proud of each and every one of you.

Roberta Smith
