'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.

Allegheny Regional Asset District's board of directors will begin its hearings on 2014 allocations on Tuesday at 3 p.m.

The hearings will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays through Sept. 10 in the ninth floor conference center in the Koppers Building, 436 Seventh Ave., downtown Pittsburgh.

The first week of those hearings will focus on contractual assets, long-term recipients of funding drawn from Allegheny County's 1-cent sales tax.

On Tuesday, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, the Allegheny County Library Association, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh's Citiparks will testify, along with an annual recipient, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

The ACLA includes more than 40 community libraries across the county, including those serving Mon-Yough municipalities.

A board business meeting will follow those hearings at 5 p.m.

On Thursday, McKeesport city officials will present the case for Renziehausen Park at 5 p.m.

It's the last of a series of contractual asset presentations that also include Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, National Aviary in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County regional parks and Carnegie Museums in Pittsburgh.

The regional parks locally include White Oak, Round Hill in Elizabeth Township, Boyce in Monroeville and South Park.

Annual assets begin making their pitches on Aug. 27. Those of local interest scheduled to appear include:

• Port Authority of Allegheny County on Aug. 27 at 5:10 p.m.

• McKeesport Symphony Society on Sept. 3 at 3:36 p.m.

• Bulgarian-Macedonian National Educational & Cultural Center on Sept. 3 at 4:08 p.m.

• McKeesport Little Theater on Sept. 10 at 3:52 p.m.

• Mon River Arts on Sept. 10 at 4:32 p.m.
