'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.

Steelers Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw sounded off on Ben Roethlisberger yesterday, hours after authorities announced they wouldn't file charges against Roethlisberger.

"He has got to realize who he is," Bradshaw said, speaking at the annual Bradshaw-Brooks Golf Tournament at Squire Creek Country Club in Louisiana. "He is an elite athlete in the National Football League. He's got an image problem right now. Best thing to do is never put yourself in that position again."

Not that Bradshaw expects Roethlisberger to listen.

"Our relationship is not any good," Bradshaw said. "When I told him to park the motorcycle, he got (peeved). Then he had the accident, and since then he doesn't like me, and I'm learning not to like him."

The outspoken Bradshaw has been a football analyst on Fox for years.

"There's nothing greater if you're single than to walk into a bar with beautiful women and have them just fill your ego up," he said. "And you ask yourself, 'Would they pay any attention to you if you weren't who you are?' Of course not. I'm not that attractive, and neither is Ben.

"The perception is if Ben has had two of these, there's got to be some guilt there somewhere. That's the perception, right or wrong. The only way you can clean that up is you've got to stay out of it. Fight the temptation and stay away from those places. Once would scare me to death. Twice• I don't even know how you sleep."
