'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

Regarding the news story “LCB may raise prices to offset projected 20 percent income drop” : Of course a government-run business, such as the state-controlled liquor stores, would secretly plan to increase the markup or profit on wine and spirits instead of laying off employees, closing stores and selling off assets like a privately owned business would do when faced with a decline in sales.

When will we, the taxpayers, start to demand that government live within its means and conduct business the right way by voting out all those elected officials who don't do what they were elected to do?
