'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.

Remember the animals

Another good cause your readers can donate to at this time of year is a local animal shelter.

If you have someone on your shopping list who has everything and you do not know what to get him, donate to the shelter in his name.

Many shelters have wish lists for items such as paper towels, stamps or blankets. Just visit their websites or call for specific brands of food they use, fundraising events and hours they are open so you can make donations or drop off donations.

Please remember that the animals in these shelters need toys to play with, bowls for food and water plus nice warm blankets to sleep on.

Thank you to all the volunteers and people who donate to help make a safe place for all of the animals.
