'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.

To Salena Zito:

I could not avoid my strong desire to let you know how very much I enjoyed your column “Little change in small-town life.” It stirred me and made me smile, keeping a fire lit in my internal conviction that these beautiful things still exist in our world.

It probably also captivated me with its references to Norman Rockwell, whose work always moves me. But just as significant was its ability to keep me reading. I have not had time for “the Sunday paper” in quite a while. So, to be able to take some quiet time to peruse the pages of that Sunday's Trib was rather exciting. (I obviously need to evaluate my life for some more areas of excitement!) Of course, there were many things I enjoyed about the paper and the opportunity to see new things, but none so much as everything about your writings and observations.

The column left me with a smile, a warmth, an encouragement of heart to not lose my own belief in all things good. To let you know the sincerity and depth of your effect on me, I have never written to anyone about what I have read in the paper — ever. But to allow my delight and joy go to unshared would have only left the desire irritating the back of my mind endlessly.

Thank you for taking the time to observe, to look and to see, and to share hope and encouragement with others.

Cindy Wiltsie
