'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.

Play was a ‘Beauty'

On March 21, I was privileged to attend the Highlands Middle School spring musical, “Beauty & The Beast Jr.” The experience was uplifting.

The student cast put on a Broadway-worthy performance, proving that all of the practice, hard work and dedication they put into preparation really paid off.

The choreography was excellent and the stage presence of these future thespians was nothing short of breathtaking.

As these talented young artists sang and danced, I could not help but get swept up by their enthusiasm.

The set designs were very professional; I'd expect to see these in a show in New York City. The stage crew changed sets swiftly and quietly, adding to the enjoyable performance.

Great job, Highlands. Be very proud of yourselves. And don't take my word for it — the evidence was in the standing ovation at the finale!
