'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.

Attorneys for the August Wilson Center for African American Culture, Dollar Bank and other stakeholders met with a judge Tuesday to discuss the $7 million foreclosure petition the bank filed last week.

The private meeting with Allegheny County Common Pleas judge Christine Ward lasted about a half-hour.

Dollar Bank claims the center — which opened in 2009 — is $7.06 million in default of its mortgage and is asking the judge to appoint to a receiver. A hearing on that motion is scheduled for Nov. 4.

The attorneys declined comment after the meeting, as did Aaron A. Walton, chairman of the August Wilson Center's board of directors.

The $40 million Downtown center, built with more than $13 million in public subsidies, ended the last fiscal year with a $1.8 million deficit.

Wilson, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, was born in the Hill District. He died in Seattle in 2005.
