'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, Aug. 23, 2014, 9:00 p.m.
 

I'm writing in regard to all of the commercials stating that people need to “drink responsibly.” How about an ad about not drinking while taking care of children?

One cannot be a responsible parent if intoxicated. If someone is going to drink, that person needs to ask a family member to watch his/her child.

There are so many instances in today's world associated with drinking and abusing children and drinking and driving with children in the vehicle. As an adult, that person may be having fun drinking, but his or her child is probably not enjoying it.
