'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.

An informational meeting for potential dealers at the Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin will be held Saturday in Uniontown.

The meeting will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Laurel Business Institute, 18 N. Beeson Blvd.

The 70,000-square-foot casino is expected to open this summer at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. It will be located in the former 48,000-square-foot Wildside Arcade and will have 600 slot machines and 28 table games.

General Manager Rich Laudon said officials at this point are focused on identifying and training qualified applicants through the resort's dealer school.

Laudon said that during Saturday's meeting, officials will explain the types of positions available, job requirements and the licensing process.

There is no cost for potential dealers to attend dealer school, he said.

He said officials are working to hire the casino's executive team and expect to open the dealer school at the beginning of February.

“Additional job postings will be available during the next few months,” Laudon said.

He suggested that those interested should check the casino website on a regular basis.

Dealer school is scheduled to begin Feb. 11 and will last several weeks. Applications will be accepted electronically by accessing the company website at www.islecasinojobs.com. Dealer school applications will not be accepted at Saturday's meeting.

Computers will be available at the session for those who do not have computer access elsewhere.

Dealer school trainees must be older than 21 and able to pass a drug and alcohol screening.

Nemacolin officials have said they anticipate gambling will generate $1.3 million a year in taxes for Wharton Township, $2.1 million for Fayette County and $37.7 million for the state. The gaming board report said the license will create 400 jobs related to the casino and 200 additional jobs at the resort hotel.

Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin will be the 16th casino operated by Isle of Capri Casinos Inc. across the United States.
