'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
Wednesday, May 14, 2014, 9:01 p.m.
 

I'm writing about the vandals who repeatedly broke the glass-block wall that stood on the stage at the Natrona playground. After repeated incidents, a painful decision was made to tear down the wall. Now there's a big vacant space on the stage. I hope the vandals are happy.

Our organization, Natrona Comes Together, has been working for 10 years to improve the lives of the adults and children in town. Hundreds of hours went into improving the playground. The stage, with its glass-block background, was the star of the production.

To end on a positive note: NCT hosted approximately 60 students from Carnegie Mellon University for a service day on March 29. They helped in any way they could; no job was too small or menial. They deserve a big “thank you!”

We ended the day with a group picture on the stage. That day I saw the best in people, not the worst. Our group will continue to do what it can to make our town and playground a better place.
