'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
Saturday, April 19, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

I was standing in line in a store recently when I heard this phrase over and over again on a closed-circuit television: “Get more Easter for your dollar.” It struck me that this national chain apparently knows nothing of what Easter is.

Easter is not for sale in any store. Easter is not a commodity that one buys. Easter is not something that one brings home in a shopping bag.

Easter is the celebration of that glorious day when the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the grave and left his tomb empty to show his power over sin, death, Satan and the grave. Without Easter (the resurrection of Christ), Christians would have no hope of eternal life.

The advertisement in the store therefore amounted to the following message: “Get more ‘resurrection of Christ' for your dollar.” How godless can our society become?
