'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.

BELLEFONTE — Penn State's attorneys want a judge to seal any documents they hand over to the estate of late football coach Joe Paterno, claiming his family plans to use them “to conduct a public relations campaign.”

Attorneys for the NCAA and the Paternos have also filed requests on how they'd like the documents to be handled by the court. The Penn State request, though filed last week, wasn't listed on the Centre County courts website until Monday.

The Paternos have sued challenging NCAA sanctions against the school for its handling of child-sex abuse allegations against Paterno's former defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky. He's in prison for molesting 10 boys.

The Paterno family filing has argued that only documents deemed confidential by the court should be sealed. Penn State and the NCAA want all documents sealed.
