'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.

WASHINGTON — The troubled health insurance website is going offline until Sunday morning.

The Health and Human Services Department says a technology team will be working on HealthCare.gov, so people won't be able to apply or enroll through the site.

The site will be down from about 9 p.m. Saturday to about 9 a.m. Sunday.

The government says people can apply for coverage through the health marketplace call center — 1-800-318-2596. That's available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The federal website locked up the day it went live, Oct. 1, and has been cranky since.

It's been taken down for maintenance before — usually for a few overnight hours.

The administration has said it's aiming to have HealthCare.gov humming along by month's end.
