'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.

NEW YORK — Hugh Jackman says he's jacked to host the Tony Awards for the third time, but fans of his stage work won't have to wait long to see the Tony-winning star onstage again.

“I'm going back to Broadway. I'm doing a play called ‘The River,' a Jez Butterworth play. So I'm really looking forward to treading the boards here on Broadway,” Jackman told The Associated Press on Thursday.

The very intimate play, the first since Butterworth's “Jerusalem,” is about a trout fisherman in a remote cabin who is visited by two of the women in his life. It was first seen in London in 2012.

But before that, it's the Tony Awards for Jackman on June 8.

“It's like the Olympics for an athlete or the Super Bowl for a football player. You want to do your best, and, of course, you only get one shot at it. But they're the things you look back at the end of the day and say, ‘I'm glad I had a go at that,' ” Jackson said of the annual awards ceremony that celebrates the best in theater.
