ADELPHIA COMMS: Exchanges Barbs with Arahova Panel Over Appeals
---------------------------------------------------------------
Adelphia Communications and its debtor-affiliates objected to the
request of the Ad Hoc Committee of Arahova Noteholders, as holders
of more than $550 million in senior notes issued by Arahova
Communications, Inc., for leave to file appeals to the U.S.
District Court for the Southern District of New York regarding:

    1. Order denying the Arahova Committee's motion to strike the
       ACOM Debtors' 2005 Amended Schedules;

    2. Order denying the Arahova Committee's motion to prosecute
       intercompany claims and causes of action;

    3. Order denying the Arahova Committee's motion to compel or
       to strike the Debtors' factual assertions; and

    4. Order approving the Debtors' proposed Resolution
       Procedures.

Brian E. O'Connor, Esq., at Willkie Farr & Gallagher, in New York,
relates that these four Bankruptcy Court Orders, relate to the
Resolution Process to resolve inter-creditor disputes as an
adjunct to the confirmation process.

The ACOM Debtors believe that the Orders are all interlocutory in
nature.  The Debtors assert that a grant of leave to appeal from
the Orders would violate the long-standing policies of avoidance
of piecemeal litigation and postponement of appellate review
until after the entry of a final order.

Therefore, the ACOM Debtors ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York to deny the Arahova Committee's
request.

According to O'Connor, the issues to be determined at the decision
stages of the Resolution Process are core matters within the
Bankruptcy Court's special expertise.  If the Bankruptcy Court
does make substantive determinations at the conclusion of the
Process that are adverse to the Arahova Committee, the Arahova
Committee would still be able to appeal from those determinations
and seek review of the Order at the same time.

Granting the Arahova Committee leave to appeal now will neither
materially advance the date of trial of the issues that are
subject of the Order in Aid of Confirmation nor lessen the length
of the trial, Mr. O'Connor points out.  If the Court grants
leave, reverses the Order and approves a process proposed by the
Arahova Committee, there would still be no material differences
in the trial schedule established in the Order.  Thus, the ACOM
Debtors conclude, there is no principled reason why the Court
should permit an interlocutory appeal now.

Mr. O'Connor notes that a party may still seek appeal from a
Bankruptcy Court's interlocutory order under the collateral order
doctrine and Section 158(a)(3) of the Judiciary Code.  However,
Mr. O'Connor contends, none of the Orders is properly reviewable
under either of these standards.

The Orders are not reviewable under the Collateral Order Doctrine
because each does not conclusively determine a disputed question,
Mr. O'Connor explains.  Moreover, he adds, the Orders will be
fully reviewable upon final judgment.

The Orders are not also reviewable under Section 158(a)(3)
because each does not involve a controlling question of law and
immediate appeal will not materially advance the ultimate
termination of the litigation.

                    Arahova Committee Talks Back

The Arahova Committee says that the objecting parties'
contentions that the Orders are "purely procedural" and "resolve
no substantive issues of law of any kind" are wrong.

Douglas P. Baumstein, Esq., at White & Case LLP, in New York,
points out that the Order approving the Resolution Procedures
resolves a number of crucial substantive legal issues, including:

    -- whether, consistent with black-letter bankruptcy law, each
       of the ACOM Debtors is required to protect the assets of
       its estate and the interests of its constituencies by, at a
       minimum, assisting in the prosecution of claims by and
       against it;

    -- whether each Debtor must be represented in its own
       bankruptcy case by independent counsel in respect of the
       inter-Debtor dispute issues;

    -- whether it is improper to have the interests of each
       individual Debtor estate or group of Debtor estates
       represented solely, if at all, by ad hoc creditor groups
       lacking access to all relevant materials and an independent
       member of management; and

    -- whether it is a violation of the Bankruptcy Code and Rules:

          (i) not to require that related Debtors file claims or
              adversary proceedings against affiliated Debtors
              before obtaining right to payment, thereby giving
              each Debtor notice of the claim, basis for it and an
              opportunity to be heard;

         (ii) to create a single omnibus hearing to resolve all
              disputed issues among all estates; and

        (iii) by not resolving issues concerning the Amended
              Schedules, to leave open fundamental questions as to
              the burden of proof that each Debtor bears in
              proving or defending claims concerning its estate.

"One cannot seriously contend that these 'procedural' issues do
not have significant substantive repercussions," Mr. Baumstein
says.

The Arahova Committee notes that the oppositions fail to cite any
authority showing that the Orders, and their resolution of
substantive issues, is permissible under the Bankruptcy Code.

"Having failed to provide any substantive support for the Orders,
the oppositions ultimately rely heavily on the contention that
any errors by the Bankruptcy Court can be resolved at the end of
the resolution process," Mr. Baumstein states.  The Arahova
Committee believes that the oppositions, in advancing this
argument, are contradictory.

The whole point of the Resolution Process is to resolve the
issues fully and finally.  If there are errors, Mr. Baumstein
says, they should be fixed now.  If not, the Arahova Committee
expects that a reversal later will result in either of two
outcomes:

       -- the sale will be put on hold for sufficient time to
          conduct the resolution in an orderly fashion; or

       -- the sale will close before the parties can exercise
          their appellate rights.

"It simply makes sense . . . to resolve such substantial issues
now rather than risk having them be swept under foot in the
stampede to conclude the Time Warner/Comcast Sale," Mr. Baumstein
maintains.

The Arahova Committee insists that it should be granted leave to
appeal the Orders because:

    a. under the flexible standard adopted by the Bankrupt Court,
       the District Courts are advised to take a common sense
       approach to granting appeals;

    b. the Orders are Collateral Orders appropriate for immediate
       review; and

    c. the Orders are appealable pursuant to Section 1292(b) of
       the Judiciary Code.

The Arahova Committee further asserts that its appeal must be
reviewed as soon as possible.

District of New York on June 25, 2002.  Those cases are jointly
administered under case number 02-41729.  Willkie Farr & Gallagher
represents the ACOM Debtors.  (Adelphia Bankruptcy News, Issue No.

AES GENER: Fitch Holds BB Rating on $400 Million Senior Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the international senior unsecured
local and foreign currency ratings of AES Gener S.A. and the
US$400 million senior notes due 2014 at 'BB'.  The Rating Outlook
for these ratings remains Stable.

The ratings reflect the successful financial strategy implemented
by the company and subsidiaries during 2004, which resulted in an
improved capital structure and increased financial flexibility,
consistent with Fitch's expectations.  In 2005, Gener has
continued to optimize its financial performance, improving
liquidity.  The ratings of Gener are also supported by its
position as the largest thermal generator in Chile, its operating
strategy to optimize contract electricity sales, diversify
operations, a constructive regulatory environment, and experienced
management.  The rating also considers the current exposure to
natural gas supply availability from Argentina, variations in
hydrology, commodity price risks, and currency risks

During 2004, Gener focused on strengthening its financial profile,
reducing debt and improving liquidity.  The company refinanced
US$700 million of debt under more favorable terms and reduced
total debt by US$300 million.  In addition to its
recapitalization, Gener also renegotiated US$151 million of
consolidated debt associated with the TermoAndes and InterAndes
projects to extend maturities to 2010, improving the amortization
schedule and reducing debt by US$62 million.  Chivor, Gener's
Colombian subsidiary also successfully refinanced US$260 million
debt extending debt maturities up to 2014.

During the first half of 2005, Gener handled the impact of the
natural gas curtailments - which affected gas-fueled
thermoelectric plants in Chile, including Gener's subsidiary
Electrica Santiago owner of the 370 MW natural gas and diesel
combined cycle in the Central Interconnected System, Nueva Renca -
by implementing natural gas swaps agreements with Argentinean
generators and natural gas transfer agreements with other Chilean
generators.

In addition, Nueva Renca's dual-fuel capability allowed the plant
to continue operating even during the most severe curtailments by
switching from gas to diesel oil without removing the plant from
service.  The effect of the gas restrictions in the SIC was
counteracted by an improvement in the operating results in the two
other systems in which it is present, the Northern Interconnected
System in Chile and Colombia.

AES Gener reported EBITDA -to-interest of 3.2 times for the
12 month period ended in June 2005, compared to 2.7x for the same
period ended June 2004.  The ratios were constrained by lower
natural gas availability to the SIC, the SIC's drier hydrology in
the first half and the evolution of fuel prices which resulted in
high electricity spot prices, combined with its current
contractual position.  In the second half, Fitch expects the
company to benefit from an increase in node prices related to a
recent approved electricity law, improved natural gas availability
and better hydrology as a result of the rainfall in the SIC
recorded between June and August of this year.  The company has
lowered its contractual exposure thereby limiting the financial
impact of future natural gas restrictions.

Gener is the second-largest electricity-generation group in Chile
in terms of operating revenue and generating capacity with an
installed capacity of 2,428 MW, composed of 2,157 MW of thermal
and 271 MW hydro generating capacity.  The company currently
participates in electricity generation in Colombia (1,000 MW),
Argentina (642.8 MW)and the Dominican Republic (a 25%
participation in a 586.5 MW thermo generation plant), as well as
natural gas transportation in Chile and Argentina.  The company is
98.79% owned by AES.

AES Gener's securities are traded in the United States and are
registered in the Securities and Exchange Commission.  SEC filings
on the company are available for free at

ALLIED HOLDINGS: Panel Hires Nelson Mullins as Local Counsel
------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Allied Holdings,
Inc., and its debtor affiliates tells the Hon. W. Homer Drake of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia
that its lead counsel, Bingham McCutchen LLP, does not have
offices in the Atlanta, Georgia, area.

For that reason, the Committee decided to hire Nelson Mullins
Riley & Scarborough, LLP, to:

    (a) act as its local co-counsel and assist Bingham in the
        preparation and filing of pleadings, and provide advice as
        to local rules, customs, and practices in the Northern
        District of Georgia;

    (b) assist it in investigating and analyzing the acts,
        conduct, assets, liabilities, and financial condition of
        the Debtors, the operations of the Debtors' businesses and
        the desirability of its continuance;

    (c) participate in the formulation of one or more plans of
        reorganization, advise the Committee as to the feasibility
        of one or more Chapter 11 plans of reorganization, and
        assist the Committee in advising unsecured creditors of
        its determinations as to any plan formulated;

    (d) consult, discuss, and negotiate with representatives of
        Debtors and other interested parties concerning
        administration of the Cases and provisions of one or more
        plans of reorganization;

    (e) investigate, analyze, and evaluate potential claims of
        the Debtors' estates, including claims for recovery of
        avoidable transfers under the Bankruptcy Code;

    (f) investigate, analyze, and evaluate the Debtors' requests
        to obtain credit or incur debt;

    (g) advise on the desirability of proposed sales of assets
        of the Debtors and distributions of its proceeds;

    (h) represent the Committee at any hearings or conferences
        with regard to administration of the case and prepare and
        file appropriate pleadings and papers in its connection;

    (i) prepare and file motions, complaints, applications, and
        other pleadings and papers as may be appropriate or
        required to represent the Committee; and

    (j) represent and assist with regard to any and all other
        matters relating to administration of the Cases,
        disposition of assets, and protection of the rights and
        position of the unsecured creditors and the estates.

Mr. Desai relates that in the months prior to the Petition Date,
Nelson Mullins informally represented an ad hoc committee of
bondholders that was formed to assist the Debtors in obtaining
refinancing for existing debt or to restructure the Debtors'
existing debt.  Thus, the Committee believes that Nelson Mullins
has gained a general knowledge of the Debtors and their finance
structure, which would prove valuable to the Committee.

Mr. Desai assures the Court that hiring Nelson Mullins will not
result in a duplication of effort, though the Committee may seek
advice from both the firm and Bingham on certain issues.

Nelson Mullins' current hourly rates are:

        Attorneys                          $175 - $1,000
        Paralegals/project assistants      $100 - $350

Richard B. Herzog, Jr., Esq., is the firm's lead counsel with
primary responsibility to represent the Committee.  His current
standard hourly rate is $475.

Mr. Herzog tells the Court that the firm does not presently
represent any other entity having an interest adverse to the
Committee in connection with the Debtors' cases.  Mr. Herzog
assures the Court that the firm is a "disinterested person" as
defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP --
http://www.nelsonmullins.com/-- has more than 350 attorneys

Case Nos. 05-12515 through 05-12537).  Jeffrey W. Kelley, Esq., at

and debts. (Allied Holdings Bankruptcy News, Issue No. 6;

ALLIED HOLDINGS: Panel Names Faskens Martineau as Canada Counsel
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Allied Holdings,
Inc., and its debtor-affiliates asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Georgia for permission to retain Faskens
Martineau DuMoulin, LLP, as special counsel to represent it in all
matters affecting the Debtors or their property and assets in
Canada, nunc pro tunc to August 16, 2005.

According to Anand Desai, a partner at Eton Park Capital
Management, L.P., and chair of the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors, Faskens is particularly well suited for the type of
representation required by the Committee.  Faskens has both a
national and international practice, with more than 580 lawyers in
eight offices in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec,
United States, England and South Africa and has experience in
insolvency and restructuring and banking and finance matters,
including cross-border proceedings and transactions.

Mr. Desai relates that Faskens is expected to:

    a. represent the Committee at Canadian hearings and any
       other related proceedings;

    b. assist the Committee and its United States professional
       advisors in analyzing the claims of the Debtors' creditors
       from a Canadian perspective and, if required, in
       negotiating with the creditors;

    c. assist with the Committee's investigation of the assets,
       liabilities, and financial condition of the Debtors in
       Canada and of the operations of the Debtors' Canadian
       businesses;

    d. assist the U.S. Advisors from a Canadian perspective in
       their analysis of, and negotiations with, the Debtors or
       any third party concerning matters related to, among other
       things, formulating the terms of a plan or plans of
       reorganization for the Debtors;

    e. assist and advise the U.S. Advisors with respect to
       any matters that they may request involving issues of
       Canadian law or practice;

    f. review and analyze all pleadings, orders, statements
       of operations, schedules, and other legal documents in the
       Canadian proceedings or any other proceedings in Canada
       relating to the Debtors or their property, assets or
       businesses;

    g. prepare on behalf of the Committee any pleadings, orders,
       reports and other legal documents as may be necessary in
       furtherance of the Committee's interests and objectives
       regarding Canadian matters; and

    h. perform all other legal services as described by the
       Committee and its U.S. Advisors, which may be necessary and
       proper for the Committee to discharge its duties in the
       Debtors' Chapter 11 proceedings.

Faskens' hourly fees in Canadian currency are:

         Designation          Hourly Rate
         -----------          -----------
         Partners             C$400 - C$800
         Associates           C$285 - C$490
         Students                     C$175
         Paralegals            C$55 - C$260

Mr. Desai informs the Court that Faskens has been asked to conduct
a review of security held by certain creditors of the Debtors in
relation to security registrations made in or property and assets
of the Debtors situated in Canada.  "Where possible, Faskens will
conduct this review using its own professionals," Mr. Desai says.

Mr. Desai further tells the Court that in Canadian provinces where
Faskens does not have offices -- Newfoundland, Prince Edward
Island, New Brunswick, Manitoba and Saskatchewan -- Faskens is
retaining local agents to assist with the work and will include
the accounts of the agents as a disbursement within the Faskens
billing statements.

Sheryl E. Seigel, Esq., a partner of the firm, assures the Court
that Faskens is a "disinterested person" as that phrase is defined
in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code, and does not hold or
represent any interest adverse to the Debtors' estates.

AMERICAN BUSINESS: CCO Mortgage Wants to Continue Foreclosure Move
------------------------------------------------------------------
On October 26, 2001, Gabriel Mazzeo, Jr., executed and delivered
an indenture of mortgage for $48,163 to Investors Savings and Loan
Association.  The Mazzeo Mortgage created a lien on a property
located at 859 Willow Street, in Talahassee, Florida.  Mr. Mazzeo
subsequently executed a Warranty Deed to Dirk A. Wonsey.

On May 16, 2002, Mr. Wonsey then executed a mortgage to Home
American Credit, Inc. -- doing business as Upland Mortgage.
The Debtors have no ownership interest in the Florida Property,
and their lien is subordinate to CCO Mortgage, formerly known as
Charter One Mortgage Corp.

At present, Mr. Wonsey is contractually due for the June 1, 2004,
payment and a foreclosure proceeding is pending.  The payoff on
the subject first mortgage is $42,161.

Kristi J. Doughty, Esq., at Whittington & Aulgur, in Odessa,
Delaware, says that taking into account Home American's junior
lien for $55,000, there appears to be no equity in the Property.
"Any potential equity would not enure to the benefit of the
Debtors' Estate since the Debtors merely hold a second lien
position."

Ms. Doughty relates that the continuation of the Debtors'
automatic stay will work real and irreparable harm to CCO
Mortgage's pending foreclosure proceeding against Mr. Wonsey.

Thus, CCO Mortgage asks Judge Walrath to lift the automatic stay.

Headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, American Business
Financial Services, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, is a
financial services organization operating mainly in the eastern
and central portions of the United States and California.  The
Company originates, sells and services home mortgage loans through
its principal direct and indirect subsidiaries.  The Company,
along with four of its subsidiaries, filed for chapter 11
protection on Jan. 21, 2005 (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 05-10203),
and the Bankruptcy Court converted the cases to a chapter 7
liquidation on May 17, 2005.  Bonnie Glantz Fatell, Esq., at Blank
Rome LLP represents the Debtors.  When the Company filed for
protection from its creditors, it listed $1,083,396,000 in total
assets and $1,071,537,000 in total debts.  (American Business

ANCHOR GLASS: Disputes GGC LLC's Ownership of Molds
---------------------------------------------------
Anchor Glass Container Corp. disputes the property description set
by GGC LLC, fka as Glenshaw Glass Company, in its request to the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania to
compel the Debtor to return some molds that it allegedly owns.

Specifically, Anchor Glass notes that the list provided by GGC
includes a mold described as 83238, a 32 oz. Mississippi Mud Jug
mold.  Anchor asserts that the mold belongs neither to Anchor nor
GGC, but to a third party.  Additionally, Anchor asserts that the
mold described as 925KN, a 759mL Liquor bottle mold, is no longer
in Anchor's possession as it was scrapped after it was rendered
unusable.

Kathleen S. McLeroy, Esq., at Carlton Fields PA, in Tampa,
Florida, asserts that GGC and Anchor exchanged molds on a regular
basis.  Neither party expected the molds to be returned.  Anchor
expended substantial funds modifying the molds.  Anchor's
modifications to the molds have substantially increased the value
of the molds.

Ms. McLeroy notes that the molds now exceed the value of the molds
lent by GGC.

Ms. McLeroy believes that GGC's interest in the molds, if any, is
adequately protected by virtue of the fact that GGC holds property
belonging to Anchor, which exceeds the value of the property
sought from Anchor.

Ms. McLeroy admits that the molds in Anchor's possession are vital
to Anchor's operations at this delicate period and are necessary
for the Debtor's effective reorganization.

Ms. McLeroy discloses that Anchor Glass intends to establish the
value of the property by expert testimony or appraisal.

BROKERS INC: Wants Engineering Tectonics to Assess N.C. Property
----------------------------------------------------------------
Brokers Incorporated asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle
District of North Carolina, Winston-Salem Division, for authority
to employ Engineering Tectonics P.A. to perform an environmental
assessment of its real property in Guilford County, North
Carolina.

                    Guilford County Property

The Debtor has entered into a purchase agreement for the Guilford
County property with Sedgefield Development Company, LLC.
Sedgefield Development intends to buy the property for $1,057,000.

During the course of undertaking its due diligence, Sedgefield
Development hired ECS, Ltd., to perform a Phase II Environmental
Assessment of the property.

ECS discovered the presence of low-levels of petroleum-related
environmental contaminants in a large soil pile located on the
property and subsequently recommended the removal of the entire
soil pile.  The removal is estimated to cost the Debtor $250,000.

The Debtor contends that the removal of the entire soil pile is
not necessary to bring the property into compliance with
applicable environmental laws and regulations.

Engineering Tectonics will assess the property to isolate any
areas of contamination so the Debtor will be able to target for
removal only the contaminated portions.  The Debtor explains that
this procedure will cost less than the remediation proposed by
ECS.  Engineering Tectonics estimates the assessment to cost
$12,246.

The Debtor assures the Bankruptcy Court that Engineering Tectonics
holds no interest adverse to its estate and is a "disinterested
person" as that term is defined in section 101(14) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

Headquartered in Thomasville, North Carolina, Brokers
Incorporated, filed for chapter 11 protection on Nov. 22, 2004
(Bankr. M.D. N.C. Case No. 04-53451).  Christine L. Myatt, Esq.,
at Nexsen Pruet Adams Kleemeier, PLLC, represents the Debtor in
its restructuring efforts.  When the Debtor filed for protection

estate from January 29, 2003, through December 7, 2004, and notify
claimholders of the bar date.

CARMIKE CINEMAS: S&P Revises Credit Rating's Outlook to Negative
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, in light of a steep drop in
movie theater attendance in the current year, revised its outlook
on Carmike Cinemas Inc. (B/Negative/--) to negative from positive.

"Attendance drops are especially damaging to movie exhibitors
because they curtail not only ticket collection revenue but also
high-margin concession sales," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Steve Wilkinson.  Concession sales can generate 40%-50% of
the gross profit collected from moviegoers despite representing
only 25%-30% of sales.

Movie attendance in the U.S. plunged 17% in the second quarter and
declines have persisted through the end of August, resulting in
sharply lower EBITDA and discretionary cash flow, and strained
credit measures for U.S. theater chains.  Although 2004 attendance
levels were strong and moviegoing can fluctuate based on the
appeal of movies in release, it is not clear if recent doldrums
suggest other factors at work.  Reduced consumer spending as a
result of high energy costs, economic uncertainty, and consumer
frustration with rising ticket prices and in-theater advertising
may play a role.

Additional factors may include:

   * the greater availability of pirated movie downloads;
   * increased video on demand of recently released films; and
   * a DVD market saturated with both feature films and TV series.

"What is clear is that the current environment has put pressure on
the credit profiles of the rated exhibitors. This is especially
true for companies with limited liquidity or aggressive capital
spending plans," said Mr. Wilkinson.

The outlook on Carmike was revised to negative from positive
because the decline in its second-quarter and year-to-date EBITDA
of 46% and 50%, respectively, were nearly double the declines
experienced by its rated peers, despite its acquisition of 30
theaters with 263 screens from George Kerasotes Corp. on
May 19, 2005.  The profit declines partially reflect the
company's industry outperformance in early 2004 and some
acquisition and refinancing expenses, but they also highlight an
increase in corporate expenses and much higher film rental terms
than its peers'.

As a result, Carmike's EBITDA margins have fallen to below average
for the industry and leverage has increased.  Also, liquidity has
contracted and relies on borrowing availability on its undrawn
$50 million revolving credit facility.  The company's compliance
with its bank covenants was only adequate at second-quarter end
but could become troublesome if operating results remain weak or
if discretionary cash flow deficits do not abate with expected
decreases in spending levels.


CATHAY GENERAL: Has Right to Buy 41% of Great Eastern Bank's Stock
------------------------------------------------------------------
Cathay General Bancorp (Nasdaq: CATY), the holding company for
Cathay Bank, entered into option agreements with shareholders of
Great Eastern Bank for the right to purchase approximately 41% of
the outstanding shares of Great Eastern Bank, a privately held New
York chartered bank.  If the Company exercises all of these
options, the value of the transaction would be approximately
$28.4 million.

The Company is currently seeking to acquire up to 100% of the
stock of Great Eastern Bank.  Accordingly, the Company has made
regulatory filings to the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco
and will shortly file applications with the New York State Banking
Department.

Great Eastern Bank is a commercial bank founded in 1986 and has
five branches in the New York Metropolitan area.  Two of its
branches are located in Flushing, and the other branches are
located in Midtown, Chinatown, and Brooklyn.  As of Dec. 31, 2004,
Great Eastern Bank had approximately $306.7 million in assets.

"We consider the New York/New Jersey market to be an important
market for us and we plan to continue investing in and growing our
operations and establishing ourselves as the preeminent banking
operation in our community," commented Dunson K. Cheng, Chairman
of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer of the
Company.  "We believe Great Eastern Bank to be an attractive
franchise and that the possibility of a future combination of our
complementary businesses is strategically compelling for both of
our financial institutions," Mr. Cheng added.

Cathay General Bancorp -- http://www.cathaybank.com/-- is the
holding company for Cathay Bank, a California state-chartered
bank.  Founded in 1962, Cathay Bank offers a wide range of
financial services.  Cathay Bank currently operates twenty-nine
branches in California, four branches in New York State, one in

                         *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 9, 2005,
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB+' long-term rating and a 'B'
short-term rating to Cathay General Bancorp and its bank
subsidiary, Cathay Bank.  Fitch said the ratings are placed on
Rating Watch Positive.


CCH I: S&P Junks Proposed $3.525 Billion Senior Secured Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'CCC-' rating to
CCH I, LLC's proposed offering of up to $3.525 billion 11% senior
secured notes due 2015.  A 'CCC-' rating was assigned to CCH I
Holdings, LLC's offering of up to $4.262 billion aggregate amount
of various series of senior accreting notes due 2014 and 2015.

CCH I and CIH are indirect subsidiaries of cable TV system
operator Charter Communications Inc. (Charter; CCC+/Negative/B-3).
Issue proceeds will be used to finance Charter Communications
Holdings, LLC's exchange offer for $8.4 billion aggregate amount
of various series of senior notes due between 2009 and 2012.  The
new notes will be issued under Rule 144A with registration rights.

"The exchange offers will moderately reduce maturity pressure on
Charter.  Nevertheless, even if all of the notes eligible for
exchange are tendered, Charter still will have over $5.3 billion
in debt maturing between 2007 and 2010, excluding any outstanding
amount on the $1.5 billion revolver," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Eric Geil.

The 'CCC+' corporate credit rating on Charter Holdings and the
'CCC-' ratings on the 2009-2012 notes being accepted for exchange
remain on CreditWatch, where they were placed with negative
implications on August 25, 2005, following the company's
announcement of the exchange transaction.  The exchange offers
expire on September 26, 2005.  S&P will view completion of any of
the exchanges as tantamount to a default on the original debt
issue terms because of the discount to par and the maturity
extensions.  Upon completion of any exchange transactions, S&P
will lower the corporate credit rating on Charter Holdings to 'SD'
to indicate a selective default, and lower the ratings on the
affected issues to 'D'.  On the same day, S&P expects to reassign
the corporate credit rating at 'CCC+' and to reassign a 'CCC-'
rating to any remaining Charter Holdings debt.


CELLSTAR CORP: Grant Thornton Expresses Going Concern Doubt
-----------------------------------------------------------
CellStar Corporation (OTC Pink Sheets: CLST) reported revenues of
$1.3 billion for fiscal 2004 compared to $1.6 billion in fiscal
2003.  Revenues in Latin America increased $15.4 million from
fiscal 2003 and were offset by declines in Asia Pacific of
$301.4 million and $89.8 million in the U.S. Revenues declined in
Asia Pacific as a result of market, economic and operational
changes in the region.  Revenues in the U.S. declined primarily
due to the Company's decision to discontinue business with Cricket
Communications in 2004.

For the period ended November 30, 2004, the Company reported a
consolidated net loss of $118.1 million, compared to a net loss of
$39.0 million in fiscal 2003.  The net loss in 2004 was primarily
due to an operating loss of $76.8 million in the Asia-Pacific
Region, and a $47.4 million increase in the valuation allowance
for deferred income tax assets related to the Company's PRC, Hong
Kong, Taiwan and U.S. operations.

                     Asia-Pacific Region

The Company decided to exit the Asia-Pacific Region and on
Sept. 2, 2005, sold its PRC and Hong Kong operations to Fine Day
Holdings Limited, a company formed by Mr. A.S. Horng, who was the
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CellStar (Asia)
Corporation Limited and effectively the head of the Company's
Asia-Pacific Region, for a total consideration of $12 million,
consisting of $6 million in cash paid at closing and a $6 million
subordinated promissory note maturing Sept. 1, 2008.  In
connection with the sale, effective Sept. 2, 2005, Mr. Horng
resigned as an executive officer of the Company and agreed to
terminate his employment agreement.  The Company has retained
certain claims against vendors.  In approving the sale, the Board
of Directors of the Company had meetings with Company management
and obtained a fairness opinion.

In addition, on Aug. 25, 2005, the Company entered into an
agreement to sell its operations in Taiwan to a former employee of
the operations for nominal consideration.  The sale is expected to
close in September 2005.  The Taiwan operations had not been
profitable since the fourth quarter of 2002.

For the period ending Nov. 30, 2004, the Company has reduced the
carrying value of the Asia-Pacific Region to its estimated net
realizable value of $21.1 million. The estimated net realizable
value at November 30, 2004, includes the consideration to be
received upon sale, cash transferred to Corporate after Nov. 30,
2004; and estimated losses of $11.2 million from December 1, 2004,
to August 31, 2005, as the operations funded these losses.

                     Financial Restatements

As a result of the Company's review of certain revenue and
accounts receivable issues in its Asia-Pacific Region, financial
information for certain periods has been restated.  The net
after-tax effect to previously issued financial statements is a
$73.3 million loss, all of which relates to the Asia-Pacific
Region.

"Without question, 2004 was a very disappointing year.  The issues
in Asia have resulted in millions of dollars of losses, and have
put the entire Company at risk.  For CellStar to remain viable, we
had to exit Asia," said Robert Kaiser, Chairman of the Board and
Chief Executive Officer.  "It is now time to move forward,
focusing our attention on strengthening and growing our remaining
operations in North America and Latin America."

                            Liquidity

The Company had a net use of cash in operating activities of
$4.8 million for the year ended November 30, 2004.  During fiscal
2003, the Company recorded a net use of cash in operating
activities of $70.8 million.  The cash usage in 2003 was primarily
in the Asia-Pacific Region due to an increase in accounts
receivable and to fund losses in the Asia-Pacific Region.

As of Nov. 30, 2004, the Company had borrowed $35.8 million under
its domestic revolving credit facility compared to $19.3 million
at November 30, 2003.  The Company also had $55.4 million in loans
to support its China operations compared to $88.5 million at the
end of 2003.

At Nov. 30, 2004, the Company had outstanding $12.4 million of 12%
Senior Subordinated Notes due in January 2007.

                        Asia Pacific Review

Due to accounting issues related to certain accounts receivable
and revenues in its Asia-Pacific Region, the Company was unable to
timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2004 and subsequent
Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.  These issues were reviewed by the
Company and the Audit Committee of the Company's Board of
Directors.  Corporate senior management assisted by the internal
auditors performed a review in the PRC of these issues.  During
the review process, Corporate senior management kept the Audit
Committee updated on its findings.  Independent counsel and
independent forensic accountants assisted the Audit Committee in
its review.

                       Material Weaknesses

Based on its evaluation, the Company's management identified
10 material weaknesses in its financial reporting as of the end of
its fiscal 2004 period:

   -- the recognition of revenue for products that had not been
      sold;

   -- rebates, price protection and sales concessions provided to
      customers but not provided for at the time of sale;

   -- recognition of revenue where there was no evidence of a
      final arrangement, the price was not fixed or determinable
      or collectibility was not reasonably assured;

   -- timely and complete reconciliation of accounts;

   -- timely processing of value added taxes;

   -- communication of Company policies and procedures to
      employees;

   -- controls over physical stock counts;

   -- the application of cash receipts to customer accounts;

   -- focus of the internal audit function; and

   -- ineffective corporate governance related to oversight of the
      Asia-Pacific Region.

A material weakness is a significant deficiency, or combination of
significant deficiencies, which results in more than a remote
likelihood that a material misstatement of the annual or interim
financial statements will not be prevented or detected.

These ineffective controls resulted in material adjustments and
restatements to both the annual and interim financial statements
during 2004 and prior years to revenues, cost of sales, bad debt
expense, provision for income taxes, accounts receivable,
inventory, value added tax payable, and deferred income tax
accounts.

                      Going Concern Doubt

Grant Thornton LLP expressed substantial doubt about Cellstar's
ability to continue as a going concern after it audited the
Company's financial statements for the period ended Nov. 30, 2004.
The auditors point to the Company's:

   -- $118.1 million net loss for the 2004 fiscal year;

   -- covenant violations on its borrowing arrangements;

   -- exit on its Asian operations  that constituted a large
      percentage of its historical operations; and

   -- experiencing restrictions in its business activities with
      vendors.

In June 2005, the Company disclosed that it had retained the
services of Raymond James & Associates, Inc., to act as its
investment banking advisor to assist the Company with the
evaluation of its financial and strategic alternatives.

                        Credit Facilities

The Company has an $85 million Loan and Security Agreement that
expires in November 2006.  The Facility is considered a current
liability as the lender has dominion over cash receipts related to
the Company's domestic operations.  Also, the Facility contains an
acceleration clause that the lenders could choose to invoke if the
Company were to default.

Funding under the Facility is limited by a borrowing base test,
which is measured weekly on eligible domestic accounts receivable
and inventory.  Interest on borrowings under the Facility is at
the London Interbank Offered Rate or at the bank's prime lending
rate, plus an applicable margin.

The Facility is secured by a pledge of 100% of the outstanding
stock of all U.S. subsidiaries and 65% of the outstanding stock of
all first tier foreign subsidiaries as defined by the Facility.
The Facility is further secured by the Company's domestic accounts
receivable, inventory, property, plant and equipment and all other
domestic real property and intangible assets.  The Facility
contains, among other provisions, covenants relating to the
maintenance of minimum net worth and certain financial ratios,
dividend payments, additional debt, mergers and acquisitions and
disposition of assets.

If the Company terminates the Facility prior to maturity, the
Company will incur a termination fee.  The termination fee was
$1.7 million as of Nov. 30, 2004, and decreases by $850,000 per
year until September 2006 and remain at $425,000 thereafter.  As
of Nov. 30, 2004, the Company had borrowed $35.8 million, at an
interest rate of 5.50%, an increase of $16.5 million from
$19.3 million at November 30, 2003.  The increase in borrowings
was a result of the Company reducing domestic trade payables in
the second quarter of 2004 and maintaining payables at that level.
Under the Facility, the Company had additional borrowing
availability of $26.4 million at Nov. 30, 2004.  At Aug. 26, 2005,
the Company had borrowed $15.1 million and had additional
borrowing availability of $22.1 million.  The interest rate was
7.00% on Aug. 26, 2005.

From February 2004 to September 2005, the Company amended the
Facility and obtained waivers that:

   -- modified financial covenants;

   -- increased borrowing availability under the Facility;

   -- extended the maturity date until November 2006; and

   -- granted extensions for its failure to:

         * file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year
           ended Nov. 30, 2004,

         * file its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the
           quarters ended Feb. 28, 2005, and May 31, 2005, and

         * cause its independent public accountants to deliver a
           letter to the trustee pursuant to the Company's
           indenture for its Subordinated Notes.

The Company would not have been in compliance with certain
covenants without the waivers or modifications.  In addition, the
Company obtained the consent of the lender to sell its Greater
China Operations.  The Company will utilize the proceeds to reduce
the borrowings under the Facility.  While the Company has received
a waiver for noncompliance with certain financial covenants for
the quarter ended Nov. 30, 2004, the Company expects to be in
violation of similar covenants during 2005.

The Company is working with its lender to modify these covenants
for 2005.  While the Company expects to obtain modifications or
waivers for the expected noncompliance with these covenants, there
can be no assurance that those waivers or modifications will be
received.

CENTURY/ML CABLE: Bankr. Court Confirms Plan of Reorganization
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
confirmed Century/ML Cable Venture's Plan of Reorganization
yesterday.

The Honorable Robert E. Gerber determined that the Plan satisfies
the 13 standards for confirmation as required by Section 1129(a)
of the Bankruptcy Code.  No votes rejecting the Plan were
received.

                        About the Plan

The Plan will implement the sale of the ownership of ML Media and
Century Communications to San Juan Cable, LLC, for $520 million,
pursuant to an Interest Acquisition Agreement dated June 3, 2005.
MidOcean Partners LP, Crestview Capital Partners, LP, and other
investors will be members as of the closing date of the
transaction.

The Plan provides that all allowed third-party claims will either
be paid in full or assumed by the Purchaser under the terms set
forth in the Interest Acquisition Agreement.  Upon the effective
date of the Plan, cash sufficient to pay all allowed claims in all
Classes in full will be placed in the Plan Funding Reserve and
then distributed to creditors in accordance with the terms of the
Plan.

The sole equity interest holders, ML Media and Century, are
impaired under the Plan.  These creditors will receive
distributions after disputed claimholders will get paid.  Each
creditor will equally share in whatever's left of the Sellers
Escrow Account and the Plan Funding Reserve of an amount not more
than $70 million.

The cash necessary to fund the Plan will come from:

     (i) cash on hand in the Debtor's accounts;

    (ii) cash to be generated from operations through the
         Effective Date of the Plan; and

   (iii) approximately $520 million of sales proceeds to be paid
         by the Buyer.

At present, the Debtor estimates that the aggregate total of all
allowed and disputed claims is approximately $415 million -- less
than the sales proceeds to be received under the Acquisition
Agreement.  This amount is comprised of:

       * ML Media's $370 million claim;
       * Adelphia's $30 million claim;
       * Highland Holdings' $10 million claim;
       * Daniels' $1.7 million claim; and
       * the balance of administrative and other claims.

COLLINS & AIKMAN: Committee Insists on Hiring A&M & Chanin Capital
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Collins & Aikman
Corporation and its debtor-affiliates asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Eastern District of Michigan to overrule the
objections presented by JPMorgan Chase Bank, NA, against the
retention of Alvarez & Marsal and Chanin Capital Partners as its
financial advisor.  The Committee says JPMorgan's objections lack
merit.

Paula S. Osborne, Esq., at Butzel Long, in Bloomfield Hills,
Michigan, explains that the Committee decided that it needed the
immediate services of both a sophisticated operations firm with a
substantial domestic and international operational turnaround
background and an investment banking firm with significant
capital market experience.  "The entire expense to the Debtors'
estates as a result of the Committee's determinations to retain
A&M and Chanin [Capital Partners] will be borne by unsecured
creditors and that very constituency's fiduciary representative
is entitled to the best professional representation needed to
acquit its responsibilities," Ms. Osborne relates.

According to Ms. Osborne, the advisory services to be provided by
A&M and Chanin are discreet and independent from each other and
ultimately will be complementary in assisting the Committee in
analyzing the Debtors' business operations, financial results and
reorganization efforts.  Ms. Osborne relates that A&M brings
significant operational turnaround experience and industry
knowledge to the analysis of the Debtors' numerous contracts and
plants.  Chanin, Ms. Osborne continues, will provide the
Committee with valuation analyses and related financial advisory
services to assist the Committee in formulating a solution to the
Debtors' insolvency and balance sheet.

Ms. Osborne tells Judge Rhodes that A&M and Chanin agreed to:

      (i) reduce their customary monthly fees; and

     (ii) defer consideration of any success fee until a success
          story can be written for the Debtors.

General Motors Corporation also joins in JPMorgan's objection to
the Committee's retention of Alvarez & Marsal and asks the
Bankruptcy Court to deny the Committee's request.

No. 05-55927).  When the Debtors filed for protection from their
creditors, they listed $3,196,700,000 in total assets and

COLLINS & AIKMAN: Wants to Walk Away from Three Burdensome Leases
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Collins & Aikman Corporation and its debtor-affiliates seek
authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District
of Michigan to reject three unexpired real property leases.  The
Debtors also ask the Bankruptcy Court to set the rejection
effective date on the date an order is entered approving their
Rejection Motion.

The Debtors say that these leases are no longer integral to their
ongoing business operations and present burdensome contingent
liabilities:

        Lessor                                Lease
        ------                                -----
        ADS Logistics             Sublease in O'Fallon, Missouri
                                  expiring 06/30/2007

        Becker Ventures           Lease in O'Fallon, Missouri
                                  expiring 12/01/2021

        Product Solutions, Inc.   Lease in Athens, Tennessee
                                  expiring 02/28/2007

Marc J. Carmel, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York,
explains that for the Lease in O'Fallon, Missouri, expiring
December 1, 2021, the Debtors have vacated the premises and are
using the property for storage of idle assets.  The sublease
under that Lease also is being rejected contemporaneously.  For
the Lease in Athens, Tennessee, expiring on February 28, 2007,
the Debtors believe the lease obligation under that lease
agreement is substantially in excess of the market price.

According to Mr. Carmel, the Debtors expect to save $37,500 per
month in expenses if the Leases are rejected.  Mr. Carmel adds
that the Rejected Leases may present contingent obligations that
should be terminated to avoid future uncertainty.

COLONIAL EXETER: Wants Court to Dismiss Chapter 11 Case
-------------------------------------------------------
Colonial Exeter, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Arizona to dismiss its chapter 11 proceeding without
prejudice.

The Debtor tells the Court that:

    (1) there is no pending motion to convert the case to a
        chapter 7 liquidation;

    (2) on Jan. 13, 2005, the Court lifted the automatic stay
        allowing a lender to take action against a real property
        which was the Debtor's only asset;

    (3) most of the debts were secured by the assets subject to
        the real property; and

    (4) moving forward with a disclosure statement and plan is
        moot.

The Debtor also tells the Court that as condition to dismissal, it
will pay any fees owed to the U.S. Trustee.

Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Colonial Exeter filed for
chapter 11 protection on August 17, 2004 (Bankr. Ariz. Case No.
04-14545).  Dennis J. Wortman, Esq., represents the Debtor.  When
the Debtor filed for protection from its creditors, it listed
estimated assets and debts of $10 million to $50 million.


COMDIAL CORP: Court Approves $20 Million Purchase by Vertical
-------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware
approved an Asset Purchase Agreement between Comdial Corporation,
Vertical Communications (ASFT.OB), and Vertical Communications
Acquisition Corporation, a direct wholly owned subsidiary of
Vertical.

The terms of the deal as filed with the United States Bankruptcy
Court for the State of Delaware include consideration paid to
creditors and assumed liabilities of approximately $20 million.
Vertical is obligated to close the transaction by Sept. 28, 2005,
which will require the company to obtain additional capital, most
likely in the form of a combination of additional lender financing
and a private issuance of the company's common or preferred stock,
on or before this date.

"Vertical's vision is to help customers transform phone systems
and voice applications from expense items and 'infrastructure' to
business intelligence weapons that help organizations deliver
exceptional customer service, dramatically reduce communications
costs and significantly improve the operational efficiency of
their businesses," said Bill Tauscher, Chairman and CEO of
Vertical Communications.  "We are acquiring Comdial because they
have excellent products, a loyal, established channel and a team
of telephony experts that will add value to our company,
accelerate our growth and help us realize this vision faster on
behalf of our customers."

The combination of Vertical and Comdial will create a significant
player within the IP-PBX space, with the momentum to make a
greater impact on the IP telephony market.  With reported revenues
of $39.58 million for the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2004, the
addition of Comdial approximately doubles the size of Vertical
from a revenue perspective.  Since its inception in 1982, Comdial
has delivered digital and IP-PBX phone systems to approximately
400,000 small and medium-sized business customers, representing
more than $1 billion in installed systems.  In 2004 alone, the
company shipped 278,900 total PBX/IP-PBX lines.  Comdial sells to
SMB customers through an active channel of value-added resellers
and systems integrators, and today has more than 800 authorized
dealers in the US.

Vertical believes that dealers and customers will benefit from the
company's larger combined research and development spend, which
will accelerate the development and delivery of next-generation
products.  They will also benefit from a larger consolidated
marketing spend, which will allow the company to launch more
robust awareness and demand generation programs designed to raise
the company's profile, increase the number of deals the company
participates in, and improve the company's win rate. In addition,
the company believes that the combined Vertical and Comdial
product set will create a more complete end-to-end product
offering for customers.

Vertical Communications, Inc. -- http://www.vertical.com/-- is a
leading provider of next-generation IP-based voice and data
communications systems for business. Vertical combines voice and
data technologies with business process understanding to deliver
integrated IP-PBX and application solutions that enhance customer

and Apria Healthcare. Vertical is headquartered in Cambridge,
Mass. and delivers its solutions through a worldwide network of

Headquartered in Sarasota, Florida, Comdial Corporation --

Debtors filed for protection from their creditors, they listed
total assets of $30,379,000 and total debts of $35,420,000.

DEL MONTE: Earns $16.2 Million of Net Income in First Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Del Monte Foods Company reported a $16.3 million income from
continuing operations for the first quarter ended July 31, 2005,
compared to an $8.6 million income from continuing operations for
the prior year period.  First quarter fiscal 2005 results included
$8.6 million of integration expense.

The Company reports a $16.2 million net income for the first
quarter 2005, compared to an $8.5 million net income for the same
period in 2004.

First quarter net sales increased 7.2% from the prior year period
to $671.1 million.  The increase in net sales was driven primarily
by increased pricing across the businesses and volume growth from
existing and new products partially offset by volume loss
associated with price increases (elasticity).  Sales increased
across each of Del Monte Foods' operating segments.

"We are pleased with the quarter's results in both our Consumer
and Pet businesses," said Richard G. Wolford, Chairman and CEO of
Del Monte Foods.  "Our strong brands have enabled the successful
pricing actions taken over the last several quarters as
inflationary cost pressures persisted and fish costs increased.
As well, our aggressive supply chain cost reduction program
continues to deliver savings - this will be particularly important
as oil prices have continued to rise.  Looking forward, we are
making progress on Project Brand which is sharpening our business
focus and accelerating the orientation of our business around our
leading brands."

                        Share Repurchase

On June 30, 2005, the Company said it has purchased approximately
12 million shares of the Company's common stock from Goldman Sachs
International in a private transaction in connection with an
accelerated stock buyback arrangement.  The shares were
repurchased for an upfront payment of approximately $125 million,
subject to a price adjustment provision and excluding commission.
The upfront payment was funded with the Company's cash balances.

The ASB enabled Del Monte to purchase the shares immediately and
Goldman Sachs is expected to purchase an equivalent amount of
shares in the open-market over time.  The program is expected to
be completed within approximately sixteen months of the initial
purchase from Goldman Sachs.  At the end of the program, the
Company will receive or pay a price adjustment generally based on
the volume weighted average price of shares traded during the
purchase period.  Approximately half of the shares purchased in
connection with the ASB are subject to a collar, a contract that
sets a minimum and maximum price for purposes of calculating the
price adjustment.  Goldman Sachs has agreed that its purchases of
the Company's common stock in the open market in connection with
the ASB will be accomplished in accordance with the Rule 10b-18
volume and timing guidelines applicable to the Company.  The
repurchased shares are being held in treasury.

                           Outlook

For fiscal 2006, the Company reiterated that it expects sales
growth of approximately 1% to 3% over fiscal 2005 net sales of
$3.18 billion.  The Company expects cash provided by operating
activities, less cash used in investing activities, of
approximately $190 to $200 million.

Fiscal 2006 net sales growth is expected to be driven by pricing
actions the Company has taken and improved volume from new
products.  During the fourth quarter fiscal 2005, the Company
announced additional pricing actions, primarily in Consumer
Products, which combined with cost savings initiatives, will help
offset the effect of continued higher costs.  Earnings performance
is expected to be driven by improved gross margin, lower interest
expense and lower integration expense, partially offset by higher
employee-related expenses and higher fuel-related customer
delivery costs.  The Company intends to carefully monitor the
continuing escalation in oil and natural gas prices, which today
are higher than the Company's initial expectations for the full
year.

For the fiscal 2006 second quarter, the Company expects sales to
be approximately flat to up 2% versus net sales of $846.6 million
in the second quarter of fiscal 2005.

DRESSER INC: KPS Special Inks Pact to Buy Instruments Division
--------------------------------------------------------------
Dresser, Inc., agreed to sell the assets of its worldwide Dresser
Instruments business to Ashcroft Holdings, Inc., an affiliate of
KPS Special Situations Fund II, L.P., in a cash transaction.

The sale is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2005.  The
company said this transaction, combined with the previously
announced sale of its On/Off Valve division, will enable it to pay
down approximately $250 million of debt.

Dresser said it was selling the division, which represents less
than six percent of its annual revenue, because it was not part of
its core business of supplying highly engineered equipment and
services to the energy industry.

KPS Special Situations Fund II signed an agreement to buy
substantially all of the assets of the Dresser Instruments
Division of Dresser, Inc.  KPS will acquire the assets through a
newly formed company, Ashcroft Holdings, Inc., for an undisclosed
sum.

Dresser's Instruments division manufactures a variety of pressure
gauges, transducers, transmitters, pressure and temperature
switches and other devices used in a wide variety of applications
and industries.  Its products include the Ashcroft(R), Ebro(R),
Heise(R), Weksler(R) and Willy(TM) brands.  Dresser's Instruments
business employs approximately 1,060 worldwide, including 450 in
Stratford, Conn., where it has its worldwide headquarters and a
manufacturing facility.  It also has operations in Brazil,
Germany, Canada, Mexico and Singapore and joint ventures in Saudi
Arabia and Venezuela.

family of private equity funds with over $600 million of committed

invests its capital concurrently with a turnaround plan predicated
on cost reduction, capital investment, and capital availability.
Typically, the KPS turnaround plan is accompanied by a financial
restructuring of the company's liabilities.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Dresser, Inc. --
http://www.dresser.com/-- is a worldwide leader in the design,
manufacture and marketing of highly engineered equipment and
services sold primarily to customers in the flow control,

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit

ENRON CORP: WestLB Holds $539 Million Allowed Unsecured Claim
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
approved a settlement agreement between Enron Corporation and its
debtor-affiliates, and WestLB A.G, formerly known as Westdeutsche
Landesbank Girozentrale.

Prior to the Debtors' bankruptcy petition date, EPC Estate
Services, Inc., formerly known as National Energy Production
Company, and NEPCO Power Procurement Company, entered into various
contracts for the procurement and construction for the "Quachita
Project" and the "McAdams Project."  Enron Corp. guaranteed
NEPCO's and NEPCO Power's performance under the Contracts.

To pay for its subsidiaries obligations' under the Contracts,
Enron entered into a Master Letter of Credit and Reimbursement
Agreement, dated as of July 13, 2000, with WestLB A.G, formerly
known as Westdeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale.

Pursuant to the Agreement, WestLB issued and, subsequently paid
for, letters of credit for the account of Enron in favor of the
developers to two projects -- TPS McAdams and Ouachita Power, LLC:

    Date Issued       Amount       Beneficiary
    -----------       ------       -----------
     8/04/2000      $16,146,750    Ouachita
     8/14/2001      $23,332,908    McAdams

       9218        Enron           Ouachita L/C
       22170       NEPCO           Ouachita L/C

The Claims allege that:

    (i) the Debtors are liable to reimburse WestLB for the amounts
        paid under the L/Cs, plus fees and interest under the
        Reimbursement Agreement;

   (ii) NEPCO and NEPCO Power failed to use payments made to them
        by McAdams and Ouachita to pay subcontractors and
        suppliers to the Projects -- instead, they transferred all
        amounts received to Enron, which was not paying NEPCO and
        NEPCO Power's debts when due;

  (iii) The amounts paid under the L/Cs were not used to replace
        funds that should have been paid to the subcontractors and
        suppliers under the Projects; and

   (iv) WestLB is subrogated to the rights of McAdams, Ouachita,
        NEPCO and NEPCO Power, and the corresponding
        subcontractors and suppliers to the Projects.

To resolve their disputes, the Reorganized Debtors and WestLB
agree that:

    (1) The McAdams Enron Claim will be reduced and allowed as a
        Class 4 general unsecured claim for $523,332,908;

    (2) The Ouachita Enron Claim will be reduced and allowed as a
        Class 4 general unsecured claim for $16,146,750;

    (3) WestLB will be entitled to a single satisfaction of

    (4) WestLB waives and withdraws with prejudice the WestLB

        Ouachita NEPCO Claim;

    (5) Neither party admits fault or liability of any sort;

    (6) The District Court Litigation and the Swept Funds
        Litigation will be dismissed with prejudice and without
        the assessment of costs against any party to those
        proceedings; and

    (7) The parties release each other from claims in connection
        the Allowed Claims, the Withdrawn Claims, the Swept Funds
        Litigation, the District Court Litigation, the Agreements,
        the Guarantees, the Projects and the L/Cs.

        to have waived and withdrawn with prejudice Claim No.
        7301;

    (2) The Administrative Claim will be reduced and allowed for

proposed $650 million senior secured credit facility.

"The ratings indicate expectations for a meaningful (50%-80%)
recovery of principal in the event of a payment default," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Alyse Michaelson Kelly.

Borrowings under the proposed credit agreement will be used to
refinance Entravision's existing bank borrowings and subordinated
notes.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed its ratings,
including its 'B+' corporate credit rating, on Entravision.  The
outlook is stable.  The Santa Monica, California-based Spanish-
language media company had approximately $481 million in debt at
June 30, 2005.

The proposed refinancing extends the company's debt maturities and
results in a $25 million increase in debt.  Pro forma debt to
EBITDA was around 6x at June 30, 2005, compared with the reported
ratio of 5.6x.

The rating on Entravision reflects:

   * its high leverage;

   * lower EBITDA margin compared with peers;

   * intensifying Spanish-language media competition; and

   * the potential for debt-financed acquisitions or share
     repurchases that could weigh on its credit profile.

These factors are only partially offset by:

   * Entravision's long-term strategic relationship with
     shareholder Univision Communications Inc.;

   * broadcasting's good margin potential and discretionary cash
     flow generating capabilities; and

   * resilient station asset values.

Entravision reaches about 75% of the U.S. Hispanic population
through its Spanish-language TV and radio stations and outdoor
advertising displays.  The majority of total broadcast cash flow
is derived from the TV segment, which has a strong broadcast cash
flow margin above 40%.  Entravision is the largest affiliate group
of both the Univision Network and Univision's Telefutura Network.
Entravision's TV and radio revenues are expected to continue
growing faster than the overall television and radio sectors
because of favorable Spanish-language population and advertising
trends, and the good competitive position of its assets.

Entravision's reported debt to EBITDA ratio was 5.6x at
June 30, 2005, compared with around 6x at year-end 2004 and more
than 7x (including preferred stock) in 2003.  Credit profile
improvement has benefited from EBITDA growth.  EBITDA coverage of
cash interest expense was 3.1x for the 12 months ended June 30,
2005.  The company's overall EBITDA margin is around 31%, somewhat
below efficient broadcasters with margins in the 40%-50% range,
because of its lower-margin outdoor advertising business and
ownership of a number of developing stations.

------------------------------------------------------------------
Exide Technologies (NASDAQ: XIDE) has appointed Phillip Damaska as
Vice President and Corporate Controller, effective immediately.
He joined Exide in January 2005 as Vice President for Finance.

Mr. Damaska, 50, succeeds Ian Harvie, who has elected not to
relocate from New Jersey to the Company's executive offices in
Alpharetta, Georgia.  Mr. Harvie has agreed to remain with the
Company for a short period of time to complete certain projects.

"I would like to congratulate Phil as he takes on additional
responsibilities," said J. Timothy Gargaro, Executive Vice
President and Chief Financial Officer.  "I am confident that his
proven track record will help drive the improvements in our
systems, processes and controls, which we need to build a
successful business.

"On behalf of the Board and the senior leadership team, I would
also like to thank Ian for the financial leadership and support he
has provided to the Company since joining Exide a little more than
three years ago," Mr. Gargaro said. "His work ethic and financial
acumen will be missed, and we wish him well in his future
endeavors."

Before joining Exide, Mr. Damaska spent eight years with
Freudenberg-NOK.  His most recent assignment there was as
President of Corteco, an automotive and industrial seal supplier
that is part of the partnership's global group of companies.
Other leadership positions in that organization included Vice
President and General Manager of Latin American Operations and
Corporate Controller.  Earlier, Mr. Damaska was Group Controller
for AlliedSignal's Automotive Aftermarket Division and Director of
Operations and Financial Analysis for AlliedSignal Automotive.

Mr. Damaska holds a bachelor's degree in accounting from Albion
College and an MBA from the University of Detroit.  He is a
Certified Public Accountant in the state of Michigan.

Headquartered in Princeton, New Jersey, Exide Technologies --
http://www.exide.com/-- is the worldwide leading manufacturer and
distributor of lead acid batteries and other related electrical
energy storage products.  The Company filed for chapter 11
protection on Apr. 14, 2002 (Bankr. Del. Case No. 02-11125).
Matthew N. Kleiman, Esq., and Kirk A. Kennedy, Esq., at Kirkland &
Ellis, represent the Debtors in their restructuring efforts.
Exide's confirmed chapter 11 Plan took effect on May 5, 2004.  On
April 14, 2002, the Debtors listed $2,073,238,000 in assets and
$2,524,448,000 in debts.

                         *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 8, 2005,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Exide Technologies to 'CCC+' from 'B-', and removed the
rating from CreditWatch with negative implications, where it was
placed on May 17, 2005.

"The rating action reflects Exide's weak earnings and cash flow,
which have resulted in very high debt leverage, thin liquidity,
and poor credit statistics," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Martin King.  Lawrenceville, New Jersey-based Exide, a
manufacturer of automotive and industrial batteries, has total
debt of about $740 million, and underfunded postemployment benefit
liabilities of $380 million.


FEDERAL-MOGUL: FM Products Unit Inks Amended Montebello Lease
-------------------------------------------------------------
In October 1998, Federal-Mogul Corporation acquired Moog
Automotive Company, the assignee of a lease agreement relating to
a warehouse and distribution center in Montebello, California.

MAC subsequently assigned its interest under the Montebello Lease
to Federal-Mogul Products, Inc.

FM Products has used the Montebello Facility as a warehouse and
distribution center for several years, under a lease that
currently runs through January 31, 2006.  The Montebello Lease is
renewable for an additional five-year term at existing market
rental rates.

Because FM Products needed a facility to serve as a warehouse and
distribution center in that region for its products, it examined
potential locations that might serve a purpose after January 31,
2006.  The three main alternatives were:

    (1) a location within the Los Angeles metropolitan area;

    (2) remaining at the Montebello Facility; or

    (3) finding another location within the region but outside the
        metropolitan area.

FM Products decided to exercise the Montebello Lease's five-year
option, after the other choices proved to be more costly.

                     Montebello Restated Lease

James E. O'Neill, Esq., at Pachulski, Stang, Ziehl, Young, Jones
& Weintraub P.C., in Wilmington, Delaware, informs the Court that
FM Products and ProLogis California I LLC, as the Landlord of the
Montebello Facility, have agreed to an amendment of the
Montebello Lease that incorporates all of the original terms and
extends it until 2011.

Under the Montebello Restated Lease, FM Products will pay
ProLogis:

           Monthly Base Rent                 Period
           -----------------          -------------------
           $51,372                    02/01/06 - 03/31/06
           $102,744                   04/01/06 - 09/30/08
           $111,131                   10/01/08 - 03/31/11

FM Products may also opt to extend the lease until March 31, 2016.

Accordingly, the Debtors sought and obtained the Court's
permission for FM Products to enter into the Montebello Restated
Lease with ProLogis.

GERDAU S.A.: Fitch Puts BB- Rating on Proposed $300MM Bond Issue
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB-' foreign currency rating to the
proposed US$300 million senior unsecured perpetual bond issuance
by Gerdau S.A.  Fitch has also assigned to Gerdau a 'BB-' foreign
currency rating.  Gerdau's foreign currency rating is constrained
at the current level due to the 'BB-' foreign currency rating of
Brazil.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Gerdau's rating reflects the group's consolidated financial
profile characterized by low leverage and strong liquidity, as
well as the favorable business positions and strong financial
profiles of its main steel production subsidiaries, Gerdau
Acominas S.A., Gerdau Acos Longos S.A. and Gerdau Ameristeel
Corporation.

The perpetual bonds have no fixed maturity date but will become
callable in whole on a quarterly basis after five years.  The
bonds are unconditionally and irrevocably, jointly and severally
guaranteed by Gerdau's four majority-owned Brazilian operating
subsidiaries: Gerdau Acominas S.A., Gerdau Acos Longos S.A.,
Gerdau Acos Especiais S.A. and Gerdau Comercial de Acos S.A.,
collectively the Guarantors.  Proceeds of the offering are
expected to be used for general corporate purposes including
primarily the funding of acquisitions outside of North America and
the repayment of short-term debt.

Acos Longos is the dominant player in the long steel products
market in Brazil with a market share of about 50%, while Acominas
is a leading exporter of billets, bloom and slabs.  Both companies
benefit from a relatively competitive cost structure as a result
of vertical integration and access to low-cost raw materials and
labor.  The rating also considers the concentrated nature of the
Brazilian steel industry, which limits competition based solely
upon price.  Barriers to entry include the logistical challenges
of transporting steel to Brazil and within the country, as foreign
steel producers have limited access to efficient distribution
networks.  Gerdau's ratings factor in the stand-alone credit
strength of both these key Brazilian operating subsidiaries, which
were created on July 29, 2005 when the former Gerdau Acominas S.A.
was split up into the four Guarantors mentioned above

Ameristeel, Gerdau's North American operations, also has a low
leveraged financial profile.  The company has made many strategic
acquisitions such that it now holds the second leading position in
the North American long products market.  Ameristeel has been a
key participant in the consolidation of the North American steel
industry which has recently restructured itself to become a less
fragmented and more competitive.  Although Gerdau's perpetual bond
does not have a guarantee by Ameristeel, Gerdau stands to benefit
from potential future dividends to be received from Ameristeel.

In 2004, Gerdau enjoyed its strongest performance ever, generating
consolidated net revenues of US$7.0 billion and operating EBITDA
of US$1.9 billion.  Compared with the prior year, revenues and
operating EBITDA increased 53% and 116%, respectively, mainly due
to the increase in the spread between steel prices and scrap
prices and the recovery of demand both in Brazil and worldwide.
With total consolidated debt of about US$2.5 billion and cash of
US$1.1 billion at June 30, 2005, Gerdau's leverage, as measured by
net debt to operating EBITDA, decreased to 0.7 times (x) from 2.2x
in 2003, and the ratio of total debt to operating EBITDA decreased
to 1.2x from 2.5x.  About 64% of the company's consolidated debt
was held at companies in Brazil and about 22% was at Ameristeel.

Although Gerdau is a geographically well diversified, with 54% of
its total production capacity outside Brazil, approximately 67% of
consolidated operating EBITDA was generated by the company's
Brazilian operations in 2004.  This exposure, as well as the
overall risk of the cyclical steel industry, is factored into
Gerdau's ratings and the credit assessment of its operating
subsidiaries.

Headquartered in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Gerdau is a holding company
for the group's steel production facilities in North and South
America.  The Gerdau companies operate mini-mill and integrated-
steel facilities in Brazil, Argentina, Canada, Chile, the United
States and Uruguay and have a crude steel production capacity of
16.4 million tons.  Gerdau owns 89.3% of its Brazilian operating
companies, which consist primarily of the Acominas and Acos Longos
and have a combined production capacity of about 7.6 million tons
of crude steel.  In North America, Gerdau owns 66.5% of Ameristeel
which ranks as the second-largest producer of long-steel products
with an annual production capacity of 8.3 million tons.

                      Going Concern Doubt

Deloitte & Touche LLP said in its March 29, 2005, report that
there is substantial doubt in the Company's ability to continue as
a going concern pointing to:

   * the Company's recurring losses from operations,

   * $94.5 million accumulated deficit as of Dec. 31, 2004, and

   * the Company's expectation that it will incur substantial
     additional operating costs for the foreseeable future,
     including costs related to ongoing research and development
     activities, preclinical studies and clinical trials.

GT BRANDS: Wants Until Jan. 9 to Make Lease-Related Decisions
-------------------------------------------------------------
GT Brands Holdings LLC and its debtor-affiliates ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to extend,
until Jan. 9, 2006, the period within which they can elect to
assume, assume and assign, or reject their unexpired
nonresidential real property leases.

The Debtors are parties to three unexpired nonresidential real
property leases relating to their headquarter offices in New York
City, their warehouse and distribution facility in Jersey City,
New Jersey, and a fitness facility in Columbia, South Carolina,
related to their Firm line of fitness DVDs, videos and related
products.

The Debtors remind that Court that it approved the sale of
substantially all of their assets to Gaiam Inc. on Aug. 31, 2005.
The sale transaction is expected to close by Sept. 31, 2005.

The Debtors give the Court four reasons in support of the
extension:

   1) The unexpired leases are valuable assets of their estates
      and integral to their business operations.  The Debtors need
      to continue their business operations through the closing of
      the sale transaction so they will be able to satisfy the
      material contractual conditions under the Asset Purchase
      Agreement;

   2) The Debtors have been unable to make reasoned decisions as
      to whether to assume or reject the leases within the 60-day
      period after their bankruptcy petition date specified in
      Sec. 365(d)(4) of the Bankruptcy Code because they were
      preoccupied with the operation of their businesses and were
      busy addressing creditor issues and concerns;

   3) The requested extension will avert the statutory forfeiture
      of valuable assets, promote their ability to maximize the
      value of their chapter 11 estates and avoid the incurrence
      of needless administrative expenses by minimizing the
      likelihood of inadvertent rejections of valuable leases or
      premature assumption of other leases; and

   4) They are current on all their postpetition rent obligations
      under each unexpired lease pursuant to Sec. 365(d)(3) of
      the Bankruptcy Code.

The Court will convene a hearing at 2:30 p.m., on Sept. 12, 2005,
to consider the Debtors' request.

Headquartered in New York, New York, GT Brands Holdings LLC,
supplies home video titles to mass retailers.  The Debtors also
develop and market branded consumer, lifestyle and entertainment
products.  The Company and its affiliates filed for chapter 11
protection on July 11, 2005 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 05-15167).

KAISER ALUMINUM: Court May Approve Disclosure Statement This Week
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Fitzgerald has indicated that she would sign off the
disclosure statement explaining Kaiser Aluminum Corporation and
its debtor-affiliates' amended plan of reorganization within the
week, according to Dow Jones Newswires.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware deferred
approval of the Disclosure Statement at the hearing on Sept. 1,
2005, upon consideration of an objection by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency.

The EPA had argued that the Disclosure Statement fails to
adequately explain how the Plan will provide for compliance with
environmental law with respect to certain contaminated properties
owned by Kaiser Aluminum Chemical Corporation.

Judge Fitzgerald said she expects to approve the Remaining
Debtors' Plan and Disclosure Statement "once the finishing touches
are put on plan documents," Dow Jones Newswires reports.

On Sept. 7, the Debtors filed a revised plan and disclosure
statement to incorporate the Court's orders at the hearing.

KAISER ALUMINUM: Trustees to Govern Asbestos Allocation Procedures
------------------------------------------------------------------
Daniel J. DeFranceschi, Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A.,
in Wilmington, Delaware, tells Judge Fitzgerald that the
individuals confirmed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware to serve as the trustees of the Asbestos PI
Trust will implement and administer the "Asbestos Distribution
Procedures," which have been adopted after negotiations among
Kaiser Aluminum Corporation, its debtor-affiliates, the Official
Representative for Future Asbestos Claimants, and the Official
Committee of Asbestos Personal Injury Claimants.

                 Asbestos Distribution Procedures

Mr. DeFranceschi relates that the Asbestos PI Trust's goal is to
treat all claimants similarly and equitably.  The Asbestos
Distribution Procedures further that goal by outlining procedures
for processing and paying the Debtors' several shares of the
unpaid portion of the liquidated value of Asbestos Personal
Injury Claims generally on an impartial, first-in, first-out
basis, with the intention of paying all claimants over time as
equivalent a share as possible of their Claims value.

To that end, the Asbestos Distribution Procedures establish a
schedule of eight asbestos-related diseases, seven of which have:

   -- presumptive medical and exposure requirements,
   -- specific liquidated values,
   -- anticipated average values, and
   -- caps on their liquidated values.

Mr. DeFranceschi explains that these requirements and values have
all been selected and derived with the intention of achieving a
fair allocation of certain personal injury trust assets allocated
to the Asbestos PI Trust as among claimants suffering from
different disease processes in light of the best available
information and taking into consideration the Debtors' history of
settling claims and the rights claimants would have in the tort
system absent the reorganization cases.

The PI Trust Assets consist of:

   * certain PI Insurance Assets;

   * 100 shares of Reorganized Kaiser Trading's common stock,
     constituting 100% of the outstanding equity interest of that
     company;

   * cash equal to $13,000,000; and

   * 75% of the KFC Claim to be transferred to the PI Trusts in
     accordance with Section 4.2.f of Intercompany Claims
     Settlement.

      Disease Levels, Scheduled Values and Medical Criteria

The Asbestos Disease Levels, Asbestos Scheduled Values and
Asbestos Medical/Exposure Criteria will apply to all asbestos
trust voting claims filed with the Asbestos PI Trust on or before
the date that the Asbestos PI Trust first makes available the
Claim forms and other Claims materials required to file a Claim
with the Asbestos PI Trust.  With the consent of the Asbestos PI
Trust Advisory Committee established pursuant to the Plan of
Reorganization and the Asbestos PI Trust Agreement, the Futures
Representative, the Asbestos PI Trustees may:

   (a) add to, change or eliminate Asbestos Disease Levels,
       Asbestos Scheduled Values or Asbestos Medical/Exposure
       Criteria;

   (b) develop subcategories of Asbestos Disease Levels, Asbestos
       Scheduled Values or Asbestos Medical/Exposure Criteria; or

   (c) determine that a novel or exceptional Asbestos Personal
       Injury Claim is compensable even though it does not meet
       the Asbestos Medical/Exposure Criteria for any of the
       then-current Asbestos Disease Levels.

The Amended Plan tabulates the eight Asbestos Disease Levels
covered by the Asbestos Distribution Procedures, together with the
Asbestos Medical/Exposure Criteria for each and the Asbestos
Scheduled Values for the seven Asbestos Disease Levels eligible
for expedited review:

Disease Level    Scheduled Value   Medical/Exposure Criteria
-------------    ---------------   -------------------------
Level VIII            $70,000      Diagnosis of mesothelioma
(Mesothelioma)                     and credible evidence of
                                   "Kaiser Exposure"

Level VII             $27,500      * Diagnosis of a primary
(Lung Cancer 1)                      lung cancer, plus evidence
                                     of an Underlying Bilateral
                                     Asbestos-Related Non-
                                     malignant Disease;

                                   * six months of Kaiser
                                     Exposure before Dec. 31,
                                     1982;

                                   * significant occupational
                                     exposure to asbestos; and

                                   * supporting medical
                                     documentation establishing
                                     asbestos exposure as a
                                     contributing factor in
                                     causing the lung cancer in
                                     question.

Level VI                 None      * Diagnosis of a primary
(Lung Cancer 2)                      lung cancer;

                                   * Kaiser Exposure prior to
                                     December 31, 1982; and

                                   * supporting medical
                                     documentation.

                                   Level VI Claims are claims
                                   that do not meet the more
                                   stringent medical and
                                   exposure requirements.  All
                                   Level VI Claims will be
                                   individually evaluated.  The
                                   estimated likely average of
                                   the individual evaluation
                                   awards for those Claims is
                                   $7,000, with those awards
                                   capped at $20,000, unless
                                   the Claim qualifies for
                                   Extraordinary Asbestos Claim
                                   treatment.

                                   Level VI Claims that show no
                                   evidence of either an
                                   underlying Bilateral Asbestos
                                   Related Non-malignant Disease
                                   or Significant Occupational
                                   Exposure may be individually
                                   evaluated, although it is not
                                   expected that those Claims
                                   will be treated as having any
                                   significant value, especially
                                   if the claimant is also a
                                   smoker.

Level V               $13,800      * Diagnosis of a primary
(Other Cancer)                       colo-rectal, laryngeal,
                                     esophageal, pharyngeal or
                                     stomach cancer, plus
                                     evidence of an underlying
                                     Bilateral Asbestos-Related
                                     Non-malignant Disease;

                                   * six months of Kaiser
                                     Exposure;

                                   * Significant Occupational
                                     Exposure to asbestos; and

                                   * supporting medical
                                     documentation.

Level IV              $20,750      * Diagnosis of asbestosis
(Severe Asbestosis)                  with ILO of 2/1 on the
                                     International Labour
                                     Organization scale or
                                     greater or asbestosis
                                     determined by pathological
                                     evidence of asbestos, plus:

                                     -- total lung capacity less
                                        than 65%; or

                                     -- forced vital capacity
                                        less than 65%, and ratio
                                        of forced expiratory
                                        volume in the first
                                        second of forced
                                        expiration to FVC greater
                                        than 65%;

                                   * six months of Kaiser
                                     Exposure before
                                     December 31, 1982;

                                   * Significant Occupational
                                     Exposure to asbestos; and

                                   * supporting medical
                                     documentation establishing
                                     asbestos exposure as a
                                     contributing factor in
                                     causing the pulmonary
                                     disease in question.

Level III              $4,850      * Diagnosis of Bilateral
(Asbestosis/Pleural                  Asbestos-Related Non-
Disease)                             malignant Disease, plus TLC
                                     less than 80% or FVC less
                                     than 80% and FEV1/FVC ratio
                                     greater than or equal to
                                     65%;

                                   * six months of Kaiser
                                     Exposure prior to
                                     December 31, 1982;

                                   * Significant Occupational
                                     Exposure to asbestos; and

                                   * supporting medical
                                     documentation.

Level II                 $700      * Diagnosis of a Bilateral
(Asbestosis/Pleural                  Asbestos-Related Non-
Disease)                             malignant Disease;

                                   * six months of Kaiser
                                     Exposure prior to
                                     December 31, 1982; and

                                   * five years cumulative
                                     occupational exposure to
                                     asbestos.

Level I (Other           $200      * Diagnosis of a Bilateral
Asbestos Disease -                   Asbestos-Related Non-
Cash Discount Payment)               malignant Disease or an
                                     asbestos-related malignancy
                                     other than mesothelioma;
                                     and

                                   * Kaiser Exposure prior to
                                     December 31, 1982.

                   Claims Liquidation Procedures

The Amended Plan provides that the Asbestos Personal Injury
Claims will be processed based on their place on a FIFO processing
queue to be established pursuant to the Asbestos Distribution
Procedures.  The Asbestos PI Trust will take all reasonable steps
to resolve the Asbestos PI Claims as efficiently and expeditiously
as possible at each stage of Claims processing and arbitration.

To that end, the Asbestos PI Trust, in its sole discretion, may
conduct settlement discussions with claimants' representatives
with respect to more than one Claim at a time, provided that the
claimants' positions in the Asbestos FIFO Processing Queue are
maintained and each Claim is individually evaluated pursuant to
the valuation factors set forth in the Asbestos Distribution
Procedures.

The Asbestos PI Trust will also make every effort to resolve each
year at least that number of Asbestos PI Claims required to
exhaust the maximum annual payment and the maximum available
payment for certain asbestos claims under the Asbestos
Distribution Procedures.

               Asbestos Individual Review Process

The Asbestos PI Trust's process for Asbestos Individual Review
provides a claimant with an opportunity for individual
consideration and evaluation of an Asbestos PI Claim that fails to
meet the presumptive Asbestos Medical/Exposure Criteria for any of
those Asbestos Disease Levels from I to VIII.

The Asbestos PI Trust will either deny the Claim or, if the
Asbestos PI Trust is satisfied that the claimant has presented a
Claim that would be cognizable and valid in the tort system, the
Asbestos PI Trust can offer the claimant a liquidated value amount
up to the Asbestos Scheduled Value for that Asbestos Disease
Level, unless the Claim qualifies as an "Extraordinary Asbestos
Claim," in which case its liquidated value cannot exceed the
maximum value for that Claim under the Asbestos Distribution
Procedures.

         Valuation Factors for Asbestos Individual Review

The Asbestos PI Trust will liquidate the value of each Asbestos
PI Claim that undergoes Asbestos Individual Review based on the
historic liquidated values of other similarly situated claims in
the tort system for the same Asbestos Disease Level.  The
Asbestos PI Trust will take into consideration all of the factors
affecting the severity of damages and values within the tort
system, including:

   (a) the degree to which the characteristics of a Claim differ
       from the presumptive Asbestos Medical/Exposure Criteria
       for the Asbestos Disease Level in question;

   (b) factors like the claimant's age, disability, employment
       status, disruption of household, family or recreational
       activities, dependencies, special damages and pain and
       suffering;

   (c) evidence that the claimant's damages were caused by
       asbestos exposure, including exposure to an asbestos
       containing product for which the Debtors have legal
       responsibility prior to December 31, 1982;

   (d) the industry of exposure; and

   (e) settlements, verdicts and the claimant's and other law
       firms' experience in the claimant's jurisdiction for
       similarly situated claims.

              Scheduled, Average and Maximum Values

The Asbestos Scheduled Values, Asbestos Average Values and
Asbestos Maximum Values for the Asbestos Disease Levels
compensable under the Asbestos Distribution Procedures are:

Disease Level   Scheduled Value   Average Value   Maximum Value
-------------   ---------------   -------------   -------------
Level VIII          $70,000          $104,000        $380,000

Level VII            27,500            33,000          85,000

Level VI               None             7,000          20,000

Level V              13,800            17,300          40,000

Level IV             20,750            22,000          55,000

Level III             4,850              None            None

Level II                700              None            None

Level I                 200              None            None

                         Reorganized KAC

On or prior to the Effective Date, new entities will be formed:

   (1) New Kaiser Intermediate Holdco -- a new Delaware
       corporation owned by KAC, to function as an intermediate
       holding company;

   (2) New Kaiser FP LLC -- a new Delaware limited liability
       company, initially owned by KACC, to hold the assets
       associated with its flat-rolled products and engineered
       products units; and

   (3) New Kaiser Remainder LLC -- a new Delaware limited
       liability company, owned by New Kaiser Intermediate
       Holdco, to succeed to the remaining assets and liabilities
       of KACC.

On the Effective Date, Texada Mines Ltd. (Canada), Kaiser
Aluminum & Chemical Investment Limited (Canada) and KACOCL will be
amalgamated to form a new Ontario corporation -- New Kaiser Canada
-- 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of
which will be held by KACC.

KACC will transfer the assets associated with the flat-rolled
products and engineered products units and all ownership interest
in Kaiser Bellwood Corporation to New Kaiser FP LLC in exchange
for 100% of the issued and outstanding membership interests of
New Kaiser FP LLC.  Kaiser Bellwood Corporation will be merged
with and into New Kaiser FP LLC.

Following the transactions, KACC will transfer all direct and
indirect ownership interests in Anglesey, Trochus, Kaiser
Aluminium International, Inc., New Kaiser Canada and New Kaiser
FP LLC to New Kaiser Intermediate Holdco.  KACC will merge with
and into New Kaiser Remainder LLC, with New Kaiser Remainder LLC
as the surviving entity.

Reorganized KAC will own directly 100% of the issued and
outstanding shares of capital stock of New Kaiser Intermediate
Holdco.

New Kaiser Intermediate Holdco will own Anglesey, Trochus, Kaiser
Aluminium International, Inc. and New Kaiser Canada, and 100% of
the issued and outstanding membership interests of each of New
Kaiser FP LLC and New Kaiser Remainder LLC.

New Kaiser Canada will hold the London, Ontario production
facility, and New Kaiser FP LLC will hold all other production
facilities used by the fabricated products business unit.

New Kaiser Remainder LLC, as the successor by merger to KACC, will
hold various non-operating properties.

          Reorganized KAC to Give Funding to New Kaiser

Reorganized Kaiser Aluminum Corporation and New Kaiser Remainder
LLC are anticipated to enter into a funding agreement pursuant to
which Reorganized KAC will, at New Kaiser's request, advance to
New Kaiser cash necessary to enable it to pay any environmental
and maintenance costs in connection with specified properties,
equal to those advances not to exceed the sum of:

   (i) 125% of an amount to be determined by the Debtors based on
       the net present value of estimated environmental and
       maintenance costs of those properties offset by the net
       present value of estimated rental and other income and
       sale proceeds, all estimated as of the Effective Date; and

  (ii) any rental or other income or sale proceeds transferred by
       it to Reorganized KAC after the Effective Date.

Mr. DeFranceschi notes that the Debtors intend that New Kaiser
should not be required to incur legal fees and or other expenses
associated with the interpretation, enforcement or defense of New
Kaiser's rights under the funding agreement by litigation or
otherwise because the cost and expense would substantially detract
from the benefits intended to be extended to New Kaiser.

Accordingly, if it should appear to New Kaiser that Reorganized
KAC has failed to comply with any of its obligations under the
funding agreement or in the event that the Reorganized KAC
threatens to take any action to declare the funding agreement void
or unenforceable, or institutes any litigation designed to deny
New Kaiser the benefits to be provided, New Kaiser would be
authorized from time to time to retain counsel of New Kaiser, at
the Reorganized KAC's expense.

The Debtors will disclose the maximum amount of that funding
obligation at least 15 days prior to the deadline for filing
objections to confirmation of the Plan.  Nevertheless, the
Debtors anticipate providing up to $2.6 million.

The Debtors' management believes that, based on its forecasts of
expenses and receipts of New Kaiser, amounts available to New
Kaiser under the funding agreement, together with rental and other
income and sale proceeds, will provide New Kaiser with sufficient
liquidity for the reasonably foreseeable future to satisfy its
obligations, including environmental and maintenance costs
associated with the properties it owns.

As previously reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on
August 29, 2005, Kaiser Aluminum Corporation, together with Kaiser
Aluminum & Chemical Corporation and 19 of their subsidiaries,
filed an amended Joint Plan of Reorganization and an accompanying
Disclosure Statement explaining the Amended Plan in the Court on

KERASOTES SHOWPLACE: S&P Places B Corporate Credit Rating on Watch
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, in light of a steep drop in
movie theater attendance in the current year, placed its ratings
on Kerasotes Showplace Theatres LLC and its parent company,
Kerasotes Showplace Theatres Holdings LLC (B/Watch Neg/--), on
CreditWatch with negative implications.

"Attendance drops are especially damaging to movie exhibitors
because they curtail not only ticket collection revenue but also
high-margin concession sales," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Steve Wilkinson.  Concession sales can generate 40%-50% of
the gross profit collected from moviegoers despite representing
only 25%-30% of sales.

Movie attendance in the U.S. plunged 17% in the second quarter and
declines have persisted through the end of August, resulting in
sharply lower EBITDA and discretionary cash flow, and strained
credit measures for U.S. theater chains.  Although 2004 attendance
levels were strong and moviegoing can fluctuate based on the
appeal of movies in release, it is not clear if recent doldrums
suggest other factors at work.  Reduced consumer spending as a
result of high energy costs, economic uncertainty, and consumer
frustration with rising ticket prices and in-theater advertising
may play a role.

Additional factors may include:

   * the greater availability of pirated movie downloads;
   * increased video on demand of recently released films; and
   * a DVD market saturated with both feature films and TV series.

"What is clear is that the current environment has put pressure on
the credit profiles of the rated exhibitors.  This is especially
true for companies with limited liquidity or aggressive capital
spending plans," said Mr. Wilkinson.

The negative CreditWatch listing for Kerasotes reflects concern
about its liquidity in light of its very thin margin of compliance
with its bank financial covenants at second-quarter end, and the
need to maintain substantial borrowing availability to fund its
aggressive theater upgrade and expansion program.  Resolution of
the CreditWatch listing will follow a review of the company's
ability to improve its compliance with its bank covenants and
secure sufficient liquidity to fund its capital spending plans.


KMART CORP: G. Carbajo Asks Court to Deem Claim as Timely Filed
---------------------------------------------------------------
Georgina Carbajo relates that on August 15, 1999, she sustained
personal injuries while shopping at a Big-K, located at 14091 SW
88th Street, in Miami, Florida.  Ms. Carbajo has been seeking
medical treatment for her ailments.

Alan S. Farnell, Esq., in Chicago, Illinois, tells the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois that
Ms. Carbajo made numerous demands to Kmart Corporation, which
demands were all rejected and ignored.

On August 11, 2003, Ms. Carbajo filed a lawsuit in Miami-Dade
County.  In response, Kmart notified her of the Bar Date for the
first time, and demanded that she dismiss her lawsuit.

During negotiations between the parties, Kmart acknowledged that
it did not serve a proof of claim form to Ms. Carbajo, and that it
would allow Ms. Carbajo to proceed with her suit and file a claim
form after the Bar Date.

Ms. Carbajo then made numerous requests for Kmart to deliver the
claim form.  However, Ms. Carbajo has never received the form from
Kmart's representatives.

Therefore, Ms. Carbajo asks the Court to:

    (i) extend the Bar Date so that she could file her claim, and
   (ii) deem the claim timely filed.

Headquartered in Troy, Michigan, Kmart Corporation (n/k/a KMART
Holding Corporation) -- http://www.bluelight.com/-- operates
approximately 2,114 stores, primarily under the Big Kmart or Kmart
Supercenter format, in all 50 United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S.
Virgin Islands and Guam.  The Company filed for chapter 11
protection on January 22, 2002 (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No.
02-02474).  Kmart emerged from chapter 11 protection on May 6,
2003.  John Wm. "Jack" Butler, Jr., Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate,
Meagher & Flom, LLP, represented the retailer in its restructuring
efforts.  The Company's balance sheet showed $16,287,000,000 in
assets and $10,348,000,000 in debts when it sought chapter 11
protection.  Kmart bought Sears, Roebuck & Co., for $11 billion to
create the third-largest U.S. retailer, behind Wal-Mart and
Target, and generate $55 billion in annual revenues.  The
waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements
Act expired on Jan. 27, without complaint by the Department of
Justice.  (Kmart Bankruptcy News, Issue No. 101; Bankruptcy

KNOLL INC: Inks Commitment Letter for $450 Million Credit Facility
------------------------------------------------------------------
Knoll, Inc. (NYSE: KNL), entered into a fully underwritten
commitment letter with UBS Loan Finance LLC, UBS Securities LLC,
Bank of America N.A. and Banc of America Securities LLC, which
provides for a $450 million credit facility, a portion of which
would be used to repay the indebtedness under Knoll's existing
credit facilities.  The closing of the refinancing is subject to
the satisfaction of various conditions.

Under the new credit facilities:

    (i) the new term loan would mature in seven years,

   (ii) the new revolving credit agreement would expire in five
        years,

  (iii) interest rates would be lower as compared to the existing
        Knoll credit facilities,

   (iv) financial covenants would be reset, and

    (v) although the new credit facilities continue to impose
        restrictions on Knoll's ability to pay dividends, Knoll
        would be permitted to pay dividends in greater amounts
        than under its existing credit facilities.

Headquartered in East Greenville, Pennsylvania, Knoll Inc.,
designs and manufactures branded office furniture products and
textiles, and serves clients worldwide.

                         *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 20, 2004,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
and bank loan ratings on office furniture manufacturer Knoll Inc.
to 'BB-' from 'BB', following Knoll's proposal of a debt
refinancing and a shareholder dividend.

At the same time, a 'BB-' senior secured bank loan rating and a
recovery rating of '4' were assigned to the proposed $500 million
bank facility that is part of the refinancing.

The 'BB-' bank loan rating is the same as Knoll's corporate credit
rating; this and the '4' recovery rating indicate that lenders can
expect marginal (25%-50%) recovery of principal in the event of a
default.

S&P said the outlook is stable.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 20, 2004,
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Knoll, Inc.'s senior implied
rating to Ba3 and senior unsecured issuer rating to B1 and rated
the company's new senior secured bank facilities Ba3 following the
company's announcement of a leveraged recapitalization.  The
outlook remains stable.  The downgrade reflects Knoll's increased
leverage and reduced interest coverage following the company's
decision to pay a dividend to shareholders in the context of
uncertainty as to the extent of the recovery in the commercial
furniture business.

   Ratings assigned:

      * $75 million revolving credit facility due 2009, Ba3; and

      * $425 million senior secured term loan due 2011, Ba3.

   Ratings downgraded:

      * Senior implied rating, Ba2 to Ba3; and

      * Senior unsecured issuer rating, Ba3 to B1.


LOEWS CINEPLEX: S&P Revises Outlook on B Rating to Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, in light of a steep drop in
movie theater attendance in the current year, revised its outlook
on Loews Cineplex Entertainment Corp. (B/Negative/--) to negative
from positive.

"Attendance drops are especially damaging to movie exhibitors
because they curtail not only ticket collection revenue but also
high-margin concession sales," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Steve Wilkinson.  Concession sales can generate 40%-50% of
the gross profit collected from moviegoers despite representing
only 25%-30% of sales.

Movie attendance in the U.S. plunged 17% in the second quarter and
declines have persisted through the end of August, resulting in
sharply lower EBITDA and discretionary cash flow, and strained
credit measures for U.S. theater chains.  Although 2004 attendance
levels were strong and moviegoing can fluctuate based on the
appeal of movies in release, it is not clear if recent doldrums
suggest other factors at work.  Reduced consumer spending as a
result of high energy costs, economic uncertainty, and consumer
frustration with rising ticket prices and in-theater advertising
may play a role.

Additional factors may include:

   * the greater availability of pirated movie downloads;
   * increased video on demand of recently released films; and
   * a DVD market saturated with both feature films and TV series.

"What is clear is that the current environment has put pressure on
the credit profiles of the rated exhibitors.  This is especially
true for companies with limited liquidity or aggressive capital
spending plans," said Mr. Wilkinson.

The revision in the outlook on Loews Cineplex to negative from
positive reflects:

   * an increase in leverage;

   * weak discretionary cash flow; and

   * the reduced likelihood that the company will be able to
     sufficiently reduce its leverage in the near term to warrant
     an upgrade.

The company's discretionary cash flow, though positive since its
sale and recapitalization on August 1, 2004, has been thinner than
expected.  The company's cushion of compliance with its bank
covenants was reasonable at second-quarter end, but this could
narrow if operating performance does not stabilize or improve.


MARQUEE HOLDINGS: S&P Revises Credit Ratings' Outlook to Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on AMC
Entertainment Inc. (B/Negative/--) and its parent company,
Marquee Holdings Inc. (B/Negative/--), to negative from positive,
in light of a steep drop in movie theater attendance in the
current year.

"Attendance drops are especially damaging to movie exhibitors
because they curtail not only ticket collection revenue but also
high-margin concession sales," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Steve Wilkinson.  Concession sales can generate 40%-50% of
the gross profit collected from moviegoers despite representing
only 25%-30% of sales.

Movie attendance in the U.S. plunged 17% in the second quarter and
declines have persisted through the end of August, resulting in
sharply lower EBITDA and discretionary cash flow, and strained
credit measures for U.S. theater chains.  Although 2004 attendance
levels were strong and moviegoing can fluctuate based on the
appeal of movies in release, it is not clear if recent doldrums

may play a role.

   * the greater availability of pirated movie downloads;
   * increased video on demand of recently released films; and
   * a DVD market saturated with both feature films and TV series.

"What is clear is that the current environment has put pressure on
the credit profiles of the rated exhibitors.  This is especially
true for companies with limited liquidity or aggressive capital
spending plans," said Mr. Wilkinson.

The outlook on AMC Entertainment and Marquee Holdings, analyzed on
a consolidated basis, was revised to negative from positive
because of:

   * rising leverage;
   * poor discretionary cash flow; and
   * a narrowing of its cushion of compliance with bank covenants.

The company's potential for an upgrade had been predicated on
reducing leverage while maintaining good profitability and
discretionary cash flow.  AMC's ability to achieve these
objectives has been impaired by the challenging industry operating
environment.

Liquidity stems from cash balances of $128 million on June 30, but
the company's margin of covenant compliance on its undrawn
$175 million revolving credit facility has narrowed significantly
and could put pressure on the rating if it does not improve.


MCI INC: Board of Directors Approves Broad-Based Retention Program
------------------------------------------------------------------
In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Michael
D. Capellas, chief executive officer of MCI, Inc., reports that
that on April 15, 2005, MCI's board of directors approved the
adoption of a broad-based retention program to help ensure the
retention of key employees.

All employees, other than Mr. Capellas and members of MCI's
executive leadership team, will be eligible to participate in the
retention program.  Among the members of MCI's executive
leadership team are:

     * Robert T. Blakely;
     * Jonathan Crane;
     * Wayne Huyard; and
     * Anastasia Kelly.

A $118.5 million aggregate amount will be made available for
retention awards.  Retention awards will be paid in cash, with a
maximum award of $300,000 per individual.  Generally, payments
will be made into three separate installments.

Earlier payments will be subject to a clawback obligation, which
will, with respect to any recipient of a retention award, be
triggered by an employee's voluntary termination of employment or
termination for "cause."

Headquartered in Clinton, Mississippi, WorldCom, Inc., now known
as MCI -- http://www.worldcom.com/-- is a pre-eminent global
communications provider, operating in more than 65 countries and
maintaining one of the most expansive IP networks in the world.
The Company filed for chapter 11 protection on July 21, 2002
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 02-13532).  On March 31, 2002, the
Debtors listed $103,803,000,000 in assets and $45,897,000,000 in
debts.  The Bankruptcy Court confirmed WorldCom's Plan on
October 31, 2003, and on April 20, 2004, the company formally
emerged from U.S. Chapter 11 protection as MCI, Inc. (WorldCom

METRIS MASTER: Fitch Places BB+ Rating on Class D Secured Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has issued a research report outlining its rating
analysis for the Metris Master Trust, series 2005-1 transaction.
Series 2005-1, a $544.35 million credit card transaction, is rated
by Fitch:

     -- class A floating-rate asset-backed securities 'AAA';
     -- class M floating-rate asset-backed securities 'AA';
     -- class B floating-rate asset-backed securities 'A';
     -- class C floating-rate secured notes 'BBB';
     -- class D floating-rate secured notes 'BB+'.

The ratings are based on the underlying quality of the receivables
pool, available credit enhancement, Direct Merchants Credit Card
Bank's underwriting and servicing capabilities, and the
transaction's legal and cash flow structures.


MIRANT CORP: Asks Court to Approve Consent Order with NY DEC
------------------------------------------------------------
Mirant Corporation and its affiliated debtors, including Mirant
NY-Gen, LLC, ask the Court to:

    a. approve a Remediation Consent Order entered into between
       Mirant NY-Gen and the New York State Department of
       Environmental Conservation; and

    b. permit them to enter into a related Reimbursement
       Consent Order that will govern certain penalties and cost
       reimbursements to the DEC, and an environmental audit.

Jason D. Schauer, Esq., at White & Case LLP, in Miami, Florida,
relates that the Consent Orders are products of the discussions
between Mirant NY-Gen and the DEC to resolve the environmental
concerns discovered at the Company's electric power generation
station in Hillburn, New York.

Mirant NY-Gen discovered a potential leaking underground pipeline
at the Facility in December 2003.  The underground line was used
for supplying kerosene fuel to the turbine.  After discovering
the potential leak, the line was removed from service and plans
were undertaken to excavate and sample portions of the line to
determine the extent of any line damage and any possible soil
contamination.  In the Summer of 2004, soil contamination was
discovered and a subsequent testing of portions of the line
revealed a small hole in the pipeline.

On May 19, 2005, the DEC served a Notice of Hearing and Complaint
seeking an order from the DEC Commissioner to require the Debtors
to:

    -- investigate the Discharge and remediate the Site;
    -- pay all of DEC's past and future response costs; and
    -- pay DEC a $100,000 civil penalty.

                     Remediation Consent Order

The Remediation Consent Order provides for the parties' action
plans in cleaning up and removing the Discharge.  The pertinent
terms and conditions are:

    (a) Mirant NY-Gen will commence certain actions set forth in:

        1) a Remedial Action Work Plan, dated April 26, 2005, and
           a Revised Supplemental Remedial Action Work Plan, dated
           May 5, 2005; and

        2) a Draft Remediation Alternative Pilot Test Report,
           dated June 13, 2005, and a Hillburn Remedial
           Alternatives Pilot Test Report, dated June 20, 2005.
           Generally, Mirant NY-Gen will:

           -- determine the extent of the impact of the Discharge
              on the groundwater at and in the area surrounding
              the Site; and

           -- design, install, and pilot test equipment to
              remediate impacted soil and groundwater; and

    (b) In the event the Court approves the Debtors' request,
        Mirant NY-Gen will submit a schedule of construction and a
        schedule of remedial goals to DEC relating to the Site.

Mr. Schauer relates that as of August 22, 2005, the Debtors have
spent $236,024 in connection with the cleanup and removal of the
Discharge.  The Debtors estimate that the total cost of the
cleanup and removal of the Discharge under the Remediation
Consent Order, the Action Work Plan and the Pilot Test Report,
will be $1.2 million to be completed in 2015.

                   Reimbursement Consent Order

The Debtors and the DEC are still negotiating the final terms of
the Reimbursement Consent Order.

The tentative terms of the Reimbursement Consent Order provides
that Mirant NY-Gen will:

    (a) pay a $50,000 penalty within 10 days of the execution of
        the Reimbursement Consent Order;

    (b) reimburse the DEC for costs to date and future costs
        incurred in connection with the Discharge, which should
        not exceed $20,000; and

    (c) pay costs associated with an independent, third-party
        environmental audit of the Facility, and to make any
        necessary corrective actions for violations that are
        discovered in the course of the third-party audit, as well
        as report the audit findings to the DEC.

MIRANT CORP: Gets Court Okay to Expand Scope of Hiscock's Services
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas gave
Mirant Corporation and its debtor-affiliates permission to
expand the scope of Hiscock & Barclay LLP's duties to include
assisting them in certain environmental and regulatory work in the
State of New York.

On April 26, 2004, the Court authorized the employment of Hiscock
& Barclay as special counsel for the Debtors as of March 3, 2004,
to provide legal services, including providing advice with respect
to real property tax issues involving some of the Debtors'
generating plants.

Specifically, the Debtors wanted Hiscock & Barclay to represent
them in an enforcement action by the New York State Department of
Environmental Conservation relating to:

    (1) the cleanup of a petroleum spill at the Hillburn facility;

    (2) all outstanding issues involving the Lovett Coal Ash
        Management facility in Stony Point, New York;

    (3) any issues associated with the Swinging Bridge dam
        collapse; and

    (4) any additional environmental or regulatory work, including
        any associated litigation, in New York for which the
        Debtors may require legal counsel.

The Debtors will pay and reimburse Hiscock & Barclay for any fees
and expenses incurred in providing the Additional Services.

Lawrence A. Zimmerman, Esq., a partner at Hiscock & Barclay,
reassures the Court that the firm continues to:

     -- represent no interest adverse to the Debtors or their
        estates; and

     -- be a "disinterested person" under Section 101(14) of the
        Bankruptcy Code.

MOSAIC GROUP: Court Converts Chapter 11 Cases to Chapter 7
----------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Harlin DeWayne Hale of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas converted Mosaic Group Inc. and its
debtor affiliates' chapter 11 cases to chapter 7 liquidation
proceedings.  Judge Hale signed the order on August 31, 2005.

Judge Hale also ordered that:

    (a) the case remain jointly administered under Case No.
        02-81440; and

    (b) the chapter 11 Trustee is authorized and directed to pay
        all chapter 11 fees and expenses prior to the turnover of
        any funds of the Debtors' estate to the Chapter 7 Trustee.

On June 24, 2005, Jeffrey H. Mims, the Chapter 11 Trustee, asked
the Court to convert the Debtors' cases to chapter 7.

The Trustee disclosed that prior to his appointment, virtually all
of the Debtors' business assets were sold in a court-approved
sale.  The Trustee also reminded the Court that he, along with
applicable professionals, had already completed certain activities
relating to the Debtors' chapter 11 proceedings.

The Trustee told the Court that except for causes of action, tax
refunds and other similar assets, the Debtors do not have any
meaningful assets.  The Trustee also disclosed that the Debtors
have not retained any employees, operation or on-going business
activities since July 3, 2003.

The Trustee told the Court that after performing his duties under
chapter 11, he does not believe there is any reorganizable entity
that can arise from the cases and any plan of reorganization would
be meritless.  The Debtors' bankruptcy cases are administratively
insolvent, the Trustee said.

These and other reasons have led him to believe that a chapter 7
liquidation would be more cost-effective.

According to the Trustee, lenders have provided a $455,0000
holdback, from which the Trustee can pay certain unpaid
professional and related administrative claims.  The Lenders have
also allowed the use of certain amounts of their cash collateral
to pay professionals during the pendency of the Debtors' Chapter 7
cases, the Trustee said.

NEW WORLD: PBGC Wants Court to Disapprove Disclosure Statement
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court Middle District of Pennsylvania to deny approval of the
Disclosure Statement filed by New World Pasta Company and its
debtor-affiliates, and order the Debtors to amend that Disclosure
Statement.

The Debtors filed their Disclosure Statement and Plan of
Reorganization on July 15, 2005.

PBGC explains that New World Pasta is a contributing sponsor of:

   -- the New World Pasta Company St. Louis Plant Retirement Plan,

   -- the New World Pasta Company Louisville Plant Retirement
      Plan, and

   -- the New World Pasta Company Omaha Plant Retirement Plan.

Those three Pension Plans are covered by Title IV of the Employee
Retirement and Income Security Act of 1974 and 29 U.S.C. Sections
1301(a)(1) and 1002(16).  The other debtor-affiliates are members
of New World's controlled group within the meaning of 29 U.S.C.
Section 1301(a)(14).

              Objections to the Disclosure Statement

The PBGC objects to the Disclosure Statement on that grounds that
it fails to provide adequate information as required by 11 U.S.C.
Section 1125.

PBGC says that the Disclosure Statement:

   1) should provide a more detailed description of the three
      Pension Plans, including an explanation of the requirement
      to fund those Plans;

   2) should provide a more detailed information regarding the
      collective bargaining, including whether the cessation of
      contributions to the Omaha Plan gives rise to a breach of
      any of the collective bargaining agreements in light of the
      fact that the Debtors have continued contributing to the
      Louisville and St. Louis Plans;

   3) should discuss the contingency that the Louisville and St.
      Louis Plans might be terminated and the magnitude of PBGC's
      claims for liability for that case;

   4) should state, as provided by ERISA, the Debtors and each
      member of the Debtors' controlled group are jointly and
      severally liable for any Unfunded Benefit Liabilities, for
      any due and unpaid contributions to the Pension Plans and
      for any unpaid premiums;

   5) improperly states that the Pension Plans will be treated as
      executory contracts to be assumed or rejected prior to
      confirmation of a chapter 11 Plan in accordance with Section
      365(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, but pension plans that are
      covered by Title IV of ERISA may not be treated as executory
      contracts and rejected under the Bankruptcy Code;

   6) broadly or unclearly provides that should any of the
      Pension Plans continue, the reorganized entity and any
      members of its controlled group will remain responsible for
      Minimum Funding Obligations and Premiums; and

   7) states that the Debtors will continue to fund the Louisville
      and St. Louis Plans.  The Disclosure Statement is deficient
      in explaining the Debtors' legal obligations with respect to
      Pension Plan continuation.

Bankruptcy Court records show that it has yet to schedule a
hearing to consider the PBCG's request.

                          Relevant Laws

Title 26 of the U.S. Code is the United States Internal Revenue
Code.  Title 29 of the U.S. Code is the United States Labor Code.

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) is a
federal law that sets minimum standards for pension plans in
private industry.  ERISA does not require any employer to
establish a pension plan.  It only requires that those who
establish plans must meet certain minimum standards.  ERISA
generally does not specify how much money a participant in a
pension plan must be paid as a benefit.

                           About PBGC

The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation is a federal corporation
created by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 and
currently protects the pensions of 44.4 million American workers
and retirees in 31,200 private single-employer and multi-employer
defined benefit pension plans.  The PBGC receives no funds from
general tax revenues.  Operations are financed by insurance
premiums set by Congress and paid by sponsors of defined benefit
plans, investment income, assets from pension plans trusteed by
the PBGC, and recoveries from the companies formerly responsible
for the plans.

                         About New World

02817) on May 10, 2004.  Eric L. Brossman, Esq., and Robert Bein,
Esq., at Saul Ewing LLP, in Harrisburg, serve as the Debtors'

OMNI FACILITY: Delta Air Wants Stay Lifted to Sue Maintech Unit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Delta Air lines, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York to lift the automatic stay so it can
pursue a third-party action against Maintech Corporation, one of
the Debtors in the jointly administered chapter 11 proceedings of
Omni Facility Services, Inc., and its affiliates, in the Supreme
Court of the State of New York.

Delta, along with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey,
is a defendant in a personal injury suit filed by Beatrice
Hairston in the New York Supreme Court.  Ms. Hairston filed the
suit to recover damages for personal injuries she allegedly
suffered when she slipped and fell on ice at an outside walkway at
LaGuardia Airport in January 2003.

Delta tells the Bankruptcy Court that it had a standing service
agreement with Maintech at the time of Ms. Hairston's accident.
Under the service agreement, Maintech provided a number of
services at LaGuardia including the removal of snow and ice in the
terminal sidewalk and concrete medians.

To insure itself from probable personal injury claims, Maintech
maintained a Commercial General Liability Insurance.  The
liability insurance, from Zurich North America, provides indemnity
for bodily injury and property damage, on an occurrence basis, for
an amount of not less than $15 million combined single limit.  The
insurance names Delta as an additional insured to the extent of
Maintech's indemnity obligations under the service agreement.

Delta says that a third-party action will allow it to pursue its
claim against Maintech to the extent of the insurance coverage.
According to Delta, the nature and amount of damages sought by Ms.
Hairston are within the coverage provisions and limits of the
insurance policy issued by Zurich.

Delta assures the Bankruptcy Court that, regardless of the outcome
of the third-party action, the Debtors will not be negatively
impacted since its seeks recovery only from Maintech's insurer.

Services, Inc. -- http://www.omnifacility.com/-- provides

RELIANCE GROUP: Disclosure Statement Hearing Set for September 21
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Arthur Gonzalez for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York set the hearing to consider approval
of the Disclosure Statement filed in Reliance Group Holdings,
Inc.'s chapter 11 case for Sept. 21, 2005, at 10:00 a.m., Eastern
Time.  The Official Unsecured Creditors' Committee has provided
notice to parties-in-interest.  All objections must be received by
Sept. 20, 2005, before 4:00 p.m., Eastern Time.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors filed the Plan of
Reorganization and an accompanying Disclosure Statement explaining
the Plan on Aug. 18, 2005.

The Creditors' Committee represents the Debtor's general unsecured
creditors, which hold an estimated $600 million in claims.  These
claims principally include:

   -- the claims of creditors holdings notes issued under certain
      senior and subordinated bond indentures;

   -- the claims of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation; and

   -- the claims of certain of the Debtor's directors, officers,
      and employees.

                         About the Plan

The Plan is the result of extensive negotiations among the Debtor,
the Creditors' Committee, the Bank Committee, the PBGC, and the
Liquidator.

The Plan calls for RGH's liquidation, which will be principally
implemented through a Liquidating Trust.  The Plan distributes the
Debtor's remaining assets to its general unsecured creditors
through the Liquidating Trust, which will receive all of the
Debtor's assets.  The assets to be distributed include cash,
certain tax-related assets, and a portion of the recoveries from
certain lawsuits.  The Committee said that these distributions,
spread over all of the claims, provide less than full recovery to
general unsecured creditors.

Reorganization for RGH is available for a fee at

prosecute Reliance Group Holdings' causes of action, which
involve prepetition interactions by certain of RGH's financial
advisors and related parties.  The Causes of Action have not been
resolved by prior litigation or settlement and have the potential
for recovery for creditors of the estate.

Gage Spencer is a law firm devoted to the litigation of complex
civil and criminal matters.  The firm's practice emphasizes
securities, accounting, employment and white-collar criminal
litigation.  Gage Spencer has tried a wide variety of criminal
offenses, including securities, financial fraud, racketeering and
tax offenses, and is experienced in the use of private
investigators and coordinating civil litigation with state and
federal prosecutors and regulatory agencies.

The Creditors' Committee interviewed and conferred with other law
firms to ensure that Gage Spencer was the best choice for the
engagement, Mr. Gulkowitz explains.

Gage Spencer will be paid based on an agreed reduced fee
arrangement.  Pursuant to the contingency aspect of the fee
arrangement, Gage Spencer will be paid only 60% of its fees
unless money is recovered, plus 100% of actual expenses.  This
arrangement, Mr. Gulkowitz says, provides Gage Spencer with the
incentive to maximize the dollar amount of recovery, which will
financially benefit the estates.

The firm's hourly rates before discounts are:

        G. Robert Gage, Jr.          $525
        William B. Fleming           $425
        Laura M. Rizzo               $265
        Associates                   $325 - $195
        Legal Assistants             $100 -  $60

The Creditors' Committee has provided Gage Spencer with a
$100,000 retainer, which will be applied against time charges and
disbursements.  Any balance remaining upon termination will be
refunded.  Gage Spencer may retain a forensic accountant or other
expert to assist in the case and to serve as an expert witness at
trial.  The Creditors' Committee is responsible for retaining and
paying any local or specialty counsel.

RGH will first use the funds from any recovery to pay Gage
Spencer the difference between 60% of normal hourly rates and
100% of normal hourly rates from the retention date until the
date of payments, plus any unpaid disbursements.  If the recovery
exceeds the discrepancy between 60% and 100% of hourly rates, a
percentage of the excess will be paid to the firm equal to:

   -- 15% of the next $1,000,000;
   -- 12.5% of the next $4,000,000; and
   -- 10% of any amount over $5,000,000.

Gage Spencer will cap its fees at $1,000,000 if there is no
recovery.

Mr. Gulkowitz tells Judge Gonzalez that these terms are fair and
beneficial to the estate, as the Creditors' Committee is
retaining Gage Spencer on a win/win basis.  If matters are
successfully resolved, Gage Spencer will receive full payment for
its services and has the potential to receive a premium.  If
matters are unsuccessfully resolved, Gage Spencer will only
receive 60% of normal hourly rates, subject to the $1,000,000 cap
that will limit the loss to the estates and creditors.

G. Robert Gage, Jr., a member of the firm, assures the Court that
Gage Spencer is "disinterested" as defined in Sections 101(14)
and 101(31) of the Bankruptcy Code, and as modified by Section
1103.  Gage Spencer does not represent or hold any interest
adverse to RGH or its estate.

RESTAURANT CO: S&P Lowers Corporate Credit Rating to B from B+
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Memphis, Tennessee-based The Restaurant Co. to 'B' from
'B+'.  The outlook is negative.

"The downgrade is based on increased leverage and weaker credit
protection measures," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Kristi
Broderick.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'BB-' rating to
the company's proposed $25 million senior secured revolving credit
facility, with a recovery rating of '1', and its 'B' rating to the
proposed $190 million senior unsecured notes due 2013, the same
level as the corporate credit rating.

Proceeds from the notes will be used to partly fund the
acquisition of The Restaurant Co. by Castle Harlan, a private
equity firm.  Pro forma for the transaction, the company will have
about $190 million of funded debt outstanding.  The ratings are
based on preliminary terms and conditions, and are subject to
review once final documentation is received.  The Restaurant Co.
is the operator and franchiser of about 483 family dining
restaurant units under the Perkins name.

The ratings on The Restaurant Co. reflect:

   * the company's participation in the highly competitive
     restaurant industry;

   * weak credit protection measures; and

   * highly leveraged capital structure.

With 483 units (331 franchised) under the Perkins banner in 34
states and five Canadian provinces, the company has a relatively
small market share in the family dining sector of the highly
competitive restaurant industry.  Moreover, the family dining
sector has underperformed the overall industry and has weaker
growth prospects in the face of competition from restaurants in
the casual, fast casual, and quick-service sectors.

will sell their regional distribution warehouse located at 3380
Florence Road in Powder Springs, Ga.  This facility is a
376,427/sf building, which sits on 15.38 acres of land.

"We expect there to be strong interest in this group of retail
store closings, especially Joliet, Ill. and other Chicagoland
markets which are very difficult to penetrate," stated Andy
Graiser, Co-CEO of DJM.  "We expect quite a number of interested
parties to submit offers to purchase leases."

"The properties being marketed, owned and leased, represent an
excellent opportunity for both users and investors to acquire some
highly sought after real estate," said James Avallone, Managing

SAINT VINCENTS: Asks Court to OK Brokerage Deal with Massey Knakal
------------------------------------------------------------------
Saint Vincents Catholic Medical Centers of New York asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to approve
its Brokerage Agreement with Massey Knakal Realty Services.

On July 13, 2005, Saint Vincents and Massey Knakal finalized the
terms of a brokerage agreement, granting Massey Knakal exclusive
right to sell the Debtors' Parsons Manor Property.

Massey Knakal prepared marketing material and provided detailed
information on Parsons Manor to approximately 7,600 different
parties.  The information was also posted on the Broker's Web
site.  The Brokers' marketing efforts generated 16 offers,
including Kinchung Lam's $12.5 million offer for the Property.

The Brokerage Agreement between SVCMC and Massey Knakal provides
that:

    -- Massey Knakal will receive a commission of either 4% of
       the gross sale price if no other broker is involved in the
       Sale, or 5% if another broker is involved.

    -- In the case that another broker is involved in the Sale,
       SVCMC will pay Massey Knakal the full Broker Fee, and
       Massey Knakal will pay the Other Broker 50% of the Broker
       Fee.

SAINT VINCENTS: Wants to Lease Cherry Creek's Medical Equipment
---------------------------------------------------------------
Saint Vincents Catholic Medical Centers of New York and its
debtor-affiliates ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York to approve a Master Lease Agreement with
Cherry Creek Capital Partners, LLC.

The terms of the master lease agreement are:

   (1) Cherry Creek will lease new medical equipment, worth up to
       $4.7 million to SVCMC for a period of 60 months;

   (2) At the end of the lease term, SVCMC may:

       (a) purchase all, but not less than all, the Equipment for
           a price agreed by both parties,

       (b) renew the lease for all, but not less than all,
           Equipment for 12 months at the rate specified, and

       (c) return all, but not less than all, Equipment;

   (3) As collateral, SVCMC will provide a security deposit of
       35% original equipment cost, to be released upon the
       satisfaction of various conditions.

   (4) In the event of a default under the Lease, Cherry Creek is
       granted relief from the automatic stay of Section 362 of
       the Bankruptcy Code to repossess the Equipment.

Stephen B. Selbst, Esq., at McDermott Will & Emery LLP, in New
York, explains that SVCMC needs the Equipment to replace old
equipment, and additional equipment to increase the hospital's
revenue.

Under the Master Lease Agreement, the SVCMC intends to lease for
the benefit of St. Vincents Hospital Staten Island a computed
axial tomographic scanner to replace on of its two scanners.
Based on the Debtor's estimates, this will generate $48,000 in
incremental revenue based on 300 new cases and no incremental
expenses.

SVCMC also intends to lease for the benefit of St. John's
Hospital Queens computed axial tomography scanners.  The Debtor
projects $685,000 in incremental revenue based on 2,000 new
cases, with $75,000 in incremental expenses.

St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan will also replace its fetal
monitoring equipment because the manufacturer no longer services
the outdated equipment.  The Hospital will also lease a cardiac
catheterization system for a new cardiac catheterization
laboratory, which it is building.  SVCM believes that the new
laboratory will generate increased revenues.

SAINT VINCENTS: Wants to Continue SSI Surgical's Service Agreement
------------------------------------------------------------------
Saint Vincents Catholic Medical Centers of New York and its
debtor-affiliates ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York to approve a service agreement with SSI
Surgical Services, Inc.

Prior to their bankruptcy petition date, the Debtors tapped SSI to
purchase and make available custom, sterilized surgical and other
equipment used for the Debtors' hospitals.

Due to the critical nature of the services being provided by SSI,
the parties agree that SSI would continue providing postpetition
services on these terms:

   (i) SSI will exclusively wash, decontaminate, inspect,
       package, sterilize and return reusable surgical instrument
       sets for:

        -- Mary Immaculate Hospital, in Jamaica, New York,
        -- St. John's Queens Hospital, in Elmhurst, New York, and
        -- St. Mary's Hospital of Brooklyn, in Brooklyn, New
           York.

  (ii) Saint Vincent Medical Centers will pay SSI $42 per
       operating room tray and $42 per labor delivery tray.  The
       minimum weekly charge, subject to agreed reconciliations,
       will be $12,000;

(iii) SVCMC will pay SSI for cost to replace any products
       broken, lost, or damaged at SSI's then current replacement
       cost plus 10%;

  (iv) At either party' election, the Services may be extended
       for one year.  In the event of the Agreement is extended
       by SSI, SSI reserves the right to amend the pricing
       schedule not to exceed 5%; and

   (v) All amounts or payments due under the Agreement will
       constitute an administrative expense under Section 503(b)
       of the Bankruptcy Code.

Mr. Selbst tells the Court that SVCMC paid SSI $48,000 for the
minimum weekly charge for the period July 5, 2005, to July 31,
2005.  SVCMC also paid a $48,000 advance payment.

Mr. Selbst informs the Court that the Debtors have made
considerable efforts to look for alternative and replacements to
SSI and have not been able to come up with a practical solution.
Due to the precise nature of instruments provided by SSI,
tailored to the specifications of the physicians practicing at
the Hospitals, no other entity could step in to replace SSI,
should SSI decline to provide the Services.

One alternative that the Debtors have considered, consistent with
industry practice, is to purchase the surgical equipment
themselves and move the Services in-house.  However, to do so,
the Debtors estimate that they would incur capital costs in
excess of $4 million.  In the meantime, without SSI continuing to
provide the Services, the Hospitals would not be able to function
effectively for any period of time.

According to The Deal, the operations include 10 million accounts
and C$2.5 billion ($2.1 billion) in outstanding receivables.
Given that most recent store-branded credit card deals have

STELCO INC: Ontario Court Extends CCAA Stay to September 23
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Superior Court of Justice (Ontario) extended the stay period
in Stelco Inc.'s (TSX:STE) Court-supervised restructuring under
the Companies Creditors Arrangement Act to September 23, 2005.

The Court-appointed Monitor, Ernst & Young, had previously
indicated that the Company would seek an extension of the stay
period.  The Monitor had recommended that the extension be granted
to maintain stability and to provide a focused environment in
which Stelco's meaningful discussions with certain of its major
stakeholders could continue.

A CCAA Stay bars creditors from commencing or continuing any
action against the Company or a Company director, in his or her
official capacity, on any claim that arose before the CCAA
proceedings were commenced.

Stelco, Inc. -- http://www.stelco.ca/-- is a large, diversified
steel producer.  Stelco is involved in all major segments of the
steel industry through its integrated steel business, mini-mills,
and manufactured products businesses.

In early 2004, after a thorough financial and strategic review,
Stelco concluded that it faced a serious viability issue.  The
Corporation incurred significant operating and cash losses in 2003
and believed that it would have exhausted available sources of
liquidity before the end of 2004 if it did not obtain legal
protection and other benefits provided by a Court-supervised
restructuring process.  Accordingly, on Jan. 29, 2004, Stelco
and certain related entities filed for protection under the
Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act.


STELCO INC: Court Names Hon. Coulter Osborne as Special Officer
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Superior Court of Justice (Ontario) appointed a Special
Officer in Stelco Inc. (TSX:STE) Court-supervised restructuring to
oversee a review of complaints made by two former directors.

The Court appointed the Honourable Coulter Osborne as a Special
Officer of the Court to oversee and assist the special committee
of Stelco's Board that has been appointed to review complaints
made by two directors who resigned on August 31, 2005.  The
complaints reflect concerns about effective Board oversight of
recently prepared forecasts that will be important to the
restructuring plan to be filed by the Company.

The Honourable Coulter A. Osborne was appointed to the High Court
of Ontario in 1978 and to the Court of Appeal for Ontario in 1990.
He served as Associate Chief Justice of Ontario between 1999 and
2001.  In 2001 he was appointed the Integrity Commissioner for the

TELECOM ARGENTINA: Successful Restructuring Cues Fitch's Upgrade
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded the international scale foreign and
local currency rating of Telecom Argentina S.A. to 'B-' from 'DD'
and the national scale rating to 'BBB-(arg)' from 'D(arg)'.

Fitch has also assigned an international foreign currency rating
of 'B-' to two newly issued notes as part of debt restructuring
process consisting of approximately US$885 million 5.5% Series A
step-up notes due 2014 denominated in Euros, Yenes, Argentine
Pesos, and U.S. dollars, and US$999 million 9.0% Series B step-up
notes due 2011.

Fitch has also withdrawn the old notes following the completion of
the debt restructuring.  Approximately US$3 billion of debt is
affected.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The rating actions reflect Telecom's improved capital structure
and debt maturity profile following the successful completion of
its debt restructuring on Aug. 31, 2005.  The debt restructuring
process has extended the company's debt maturities, lowered
interest costs, and reduced overall levels of debt.  On Aug. 31,
2005, Telecom exchanged approximately US$1.9 billion of new notes
for approximately US$3 billion of debt.

In addition, as part of the terms of the bankruptcy proceeding for
Acuerdo Preventivo Extrajudicial, Telecom prepaid approximately
US$535 million of the new notes with balance sheet cash including
principal payments due up to and including Oct. 15, 2007.  The
outstanding balance of the new notes are series 'A' notes are
equivalent to US$750 million, and the series 'B' US$599.5 million.

Telecom's financial profile has clearly improved after the
aforementioned debt restructuring and the company should be able
to successfully meet its debt service obligations going forward.
On a pro forma basis, credit ratios are strong for the rating
category; total debt to EBITDA is expected to be lower than 3.0
times (x), and EBITDA to interest expense should strengthen to
approximately 4.0x from 2.8x at the end of 2004.  Total debt
declined to approximately US$1.8 billion from US$3.4 billion at
the end of June 2005.  Refinancing risk is expected to remain low
over the medium term as the company uses cash flow from operations
to pay debt over the next few years on an improved maturity
profile.

Telecom's ratings are constrained by significant regulatory and
sovereign related risks.  Regulated tariffs have been and continue
to remain frozen since the crisis began in 2002, which limits
revenue flexibility and adds exposure to devaluation and
inflationary risks.  Telecom's revenues are peso-denominated,
while its debt is largely foreign currency-denominated.

Over the medium to long term, improvements in Telecom's credit
quality will hinge upon a sustained recovery of the Argentine
economy and telecommunications services demand, in addition to
tariff relief as part of a sustainable regulatory framework for
the fixed-line business.  During the first half of 2005, the
company benefited from a partial recovery in demand for
telecommunications services, particularly in the wireless segment.
Consequently, the company increased revenues by 25% during this
period, but EBITDA declined by 1.1% mainly due to a challenging
competitive environment in the wireless business that resulted in
increased advertising, handset subsidies, and sales commission
costs.

Telecom is one of the largest telecommunications providers in
Argentina, with 3.85 million fixed lines in service (47% estimated
market share), 4.2 million wireless subscribers in Argentina, and
252,000 Internet subscribers.  Telecom is 55% owned by Nortel
Inversora, which in turn is jointly controlled by Telecom Italia
and Grupo Werthein; 5% owned by employees; and the remainder is
publicly traded.

Telecom's securities are traded in the United States and are
registered in the Securities and Exchange Commission.  SEC filings

Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal and
accounting professionals and financial advisors, at the Debtors'
expense.  They may investigate the Debtors' business and financial
affairs.  Importantly, official committees serve as fiduciaries to
the general population of creditors they represent.  Those
committees will also attempt to negotiate the terms of a
consensual chapter 11 plan -- almost always subject to the terms
of strict confidentiality agreements with the Debtors and other
core parties-in-interest.  If negotiations break down, the
Committee may ask the Bankruptcy Court to replace management with
an independent trustee.  If the Committee concludes reorganization
of the Debtors is impossible, the Committee will urge the
Bankruptcy Court to convert the chapter 11 cases to a liquidation
proceeding.

TERAFORCE TECHNOLOGY: Committee Wants Locke Liddell as Counsel
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Teraforce
Technology Corporation and DNA Computing Solutions, Inc., asks the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas for
permission to employ Locke Liddell & Sapp LLP as its counsel
effective Aug. 10, 2005.

Locke Liddell will:

   a) consult with the Debtors and representatives of the U.S.
      Trustee concerning the administration of the Debtors'
      chapter 11 cases and property;

   b) investigate the Debtors' acts, conduct, assets, liabilities
      and financial affairs and condition, the operation of their
      businesses, and any matter relevant to the case;

   c) analyze and advise the Committee regarding financing and
      cash collateral issues;

   d) advise the Committee regarding issues related to conversion
      of the Debtors' cases or the appointment of a Chapter 11
      Trustee or examiner;

   e) advise the Committee regarding bidding and sale processes;

   f) advise the Committee regarding any plan proposed in the
      Debtors' chapter 11 cases; and

   g) perform other services as may be requested by the Committee.

The Committee and Locke Liddell have agreed that the firm will
receive 90% of its normal hourly rates, adjusted from time to
time, as approved by the Court.  Doug Skierski, Esq., a Locke
Liddell associate, discloses that he charges $300 per hour for his
services.

Court documents do not disclose the current hourly rates for other
professionals.

The Committee assures the Court that Locke Liddell does not hold
any interest adverse to the Debtors' estate and is a
"disinterested person" as that term is defined by section 101(14)
Bankruptcy Code.

TERAFORCE TECH: Court Okays Use of Bean Group's Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas,
Dallas Division, gave Teraforce Technology Corporation and DNA
Computing Solutions, Inc., authority to access the cash collateral
securing their indebtedness to a consortium of lenders led by
Richard E. Bean, as agent.

Mr. Bean, Robert E. Garrison, II, Steven A. Webster, James R.
Hawkins, Peter W. Badger, John H. Styles, and Donald R. Campbell
hold a $2.8 million note against the Debtors' future accounts,
intellectual property rights, and general intangibles, among
others, following the assignment of the Note by Encore Bank.

The Debtors tell the Court that they need immediate access to the
cash collateral to:

   -- pay the wages and related benefits of their employees, as
      well as insurance obligations related to employees and
      premises;

   -- pay for the use of their leased premises, as well as
      utilities and other incidental obligations;

   -- collect outstanding accounts receivable and, to the extent
      advisable, manufacture new products to create postpetition
      receivables;

   -- attend to costs and fees associated with ongoing permit,
      trademark, and patent obligations;

   -- maximize the value of their assets for a sale on a going
      concern basis because, given the technical and highly
      complicated nature of their businesses, any third-party
      purchaser will need the benefit of the Debtors' employees
      to smoothly transition operations.

                          Proposed Sale

The Debtors are asking Court to approve the sale of substantially
all of DNA's assets to GE Fanuc Automation Corporation's for
$2.9 million, subject to higher and better offers.

The Debtors will use the asset sale proceeds to pay the Encore
Note.  The Debtors anticipate a substantial reduction of their
continuing need for cash collateral following a reduced workforce
after the proposed sale.

To adequately protect the interests of their lenders, the Debtors
will grant the Bean Group first priority replacement liens in and
to the postpetition receivables to the extent of the Debtors' use
of the cash collateral and to the extent that the proposed sale
fails to pay the Bean Group in full.

In addition, the Debtors will grant the Bean Group a super-
priority administrative expense claim to the extent of diminution
in value of the cash collateral as a result of their use.

TOWER AUTOMOTIVE: Says Federal Insurance Must Pay Defense Costs
---------------------------------------------------------------
As previously reported, 11 purported class action lawsuits have
been filed against Tower Automotive Inc. and its debtor-
affiliates' current and former officers, directors and employees
since the Debtors' bankruptcy filing.  The Class Action Lawsuits
sought hundreds of millions of dollars in potential damages for a
variety of alleged violations of the Securities and Exchange Act
of 1934 and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.

The Securities Class Actions are:

       Plaintiff                     Case No.      Filing Date

       Gryzelak, et al.              05-cv-3496     04/08/2005

Federal Insurance Company, the Debtors' insurance carrier, has
acknowledged coverage of the Securities Class Actions.  Because
the ERISA Class Actions allege ERISA violations, the Debtors
promptly notified Federal and sought access to the insurance
policy to cover defense costs related to the Class Action
Lawsuits.

Federal, however, denied coverage for the ERISA Class Actions.
Subsequently, the Debtors filed a complaint against Federal
seeking, among other things, declaratory relief to establish
Federal's obligations to advance defense costs under Federal
Policy No. 8151-5430.  Federal has sought dismissal of the ERISA
Coverage Litigation.

Matthew A. Cantor, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York,
clarifies that are not seeking a declaration that insurance
coverage exists for damages that certain of their officers and
directors may or may not eventually incur in lawsuits alleging
violations of ERISA.

The Debtors, however, only seek a declaration that Federal
Insurance Company is obligated to pay the defense costs of their
officers and directors who are named as defendants in the ERISA
Actions.

According to Mr. Cantor, the Securities Based Claim Exclusion
does not bar coverage for the ERISA Actions because it only
applies when non-Plan participants file the claims for which the
insured seeks coverage.  However, Plan participants and
beneficiaries filed the ERISA Actions.

Mr. Cantor asserts that Federal's interpretation of the
Securities Based Claim Exclusion would make the Debtors and their
officers' and directors' fiduciary insurance coverage "entirely
contingent on the fortuity of whether any person who is not a
Plan participant or beneficiary happens to so much as threaten to
make a Securities-Based Claim against any Insured."

"Federal would have this Court conclude that each of these
individuals' right to fiduciary coverage hangs on a single thread
that none of the other individuals says anything that would draw
even a letter suggesting a misrepresentation had been made about
the value of [the Debtors'] securities," Mr. Cantor contends.
"Such illusory coverage would be of little or no value to [the
Debtors], or to [their] officers and directors who rely on the
Policy in performing their fiduciary duties under the ERISA
Plan."

Thus, the Debtors ask the Court to direct Federal to pay the
defense costs of all defendants in the ERISA Actions.

                         Federal Retorts

Dena Copulsky, Esq., at Hogan & Hartson L.L.P., in New York,
asserts that "Federal's motion to dismiss raises an issue that is
both ripe for determination and fundamental to this case: whether
coverage for the ERISA Actions is barred by the Securities-Based
Claims Exclusion."

"If the answer to that question is 'yes' -- and it clearly is --
then there is no coverage, Federal has no duty to defend, and
this entire action should be dismissed," Ms. Copulsky says.

Ms. Copulsky points out that the Securities-Based Claims
Exclusion does not render Coverage under the policy "illusory."

Ms. Copulsky explains that the Policy provides coverage for a
wide range of Claims alleging "any breach of the
responsibilities, obligations or duties imposed by ERISA upon
fiduciaries of the Sponsored Plan in their capacity as such
fiduciaries," or "any negligent act, error or omission in the
Administration of any Plan committed, attempted, or allegedly
committed or attempted by an Insured in the Insured's capacity as
such," or "any other matter claimed against an Insured solely by
reason of the Insured's service as a fiduciary of any Sponsored
Plan."

However, Ms. Copulsky maintains that the ERISA Actions are
different in that they:

   (a) arise directly from and are based on the alleged
       disclosure or non-disclosure of information relating to
       the Debtors' securities or their financial or operational
       performance;

   (b) are excluded from coverage under this Policy because there
       are "other civil proceedings" filed on behalf of non-Plan
       participants that make similar claims.

According to Ms. Copulsky, excluding the ERISA Claims also does
not render coverage under the Policy illusory.  It simply gives
effect to a plainly written exclusion that limits, but does not
eliminate or even substantially reduce, the coverage potentially
available under the Policy.

Ms. Copulsky disagrees with the Debtors' contention that the
Securities-Based Claims Exclusion only applies when the claims
for which the insured seeks coverage are brought by non-Plan
participants.  "That argument is directly contrary to the
language of the Exclusion, which provides that coverage is barred
for any Securities-Based Claim if . . . any other . . . civil or
administrative proceeding against an Insured, seeks or has sought
relief for any purchaser or holder of [Tower] securities . . .
who is not a Plan participant or beneficiary."

TOWER AUTOMOTIVE: Court Okays Stipulation on Setoff with Visteon
----------------------------------------------------------------
As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on May 17, 2005,
Visteon Corp. asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York to lift the automatic stay to effect
a set-off on its prepetition debt with Tower Automotive Inc.

Tower, in turn, asked the Bankruptcy Court not to allow the set-
off unless:

   (1) the amounts of the Visteon Prepetition Debt and Debtors'
       Prepetition Debt, including any amounts that Visteon has
       deducted from the Checks that it had previously asserted
       in the Reclamation Claim, are reconciled and fixed by
       agreement between the parties or by Court Order; and

   (2) Visteon remits a $714,639 payment to the Debtors.

Pursuant to a Court order directing Visteon Corporation and the
Debtors to fix their mutual prepetition claims, the parties
stipulate that:

   (1) the Debtors owe Visteon $4,547,264 for component parts
       they purchased before they filed for bankruptcy;

   (2) Visteon owes the Debtors $582,736 for component parts
       purchased before the Petition Date;

   (3) the Debtors' Prepetition Debt will be set off against
       Visteon's Prepetition Debt, leaving Visteon with two
       allowed general unsecured non-priority claims in the
       aggregate amount of $3,964,527 in the Debtors' Chapter 11
       cases:

          (i) a $2,509,403 general unsecured non-priority claim
              in Tower Automotive Lansing, LLC's Chapter 11 case;
              and

         (ii) a $1,455,124 general unsecured non-priority claim
              in Tower Automotive Products Company's Chapter 11
              case; and

   (4) the automatic stay applicable to Visteon in the Debtors'
       cases is modified to the extent necessary to permit the
       effectuation of the set-off.

Judge Gropper approved the stipulation.

TRM CORP: Buying Travelex UK's ATM Business for EUR43.4 Million
---------------------------------------------------------------
TRM Corporation (NASDAQ: "TRMM") has agreed to purchase the United
Kingdom-based ATM business of Travelex UK Limited.  The business
includes the ATM division of Travelex as well as Travelex ATMs
Limited, a joint venture company with Snax 24 Corporation Limited.
TRM will purchase the business, comprised of over 1,100 primarily
full placement ATM units, for EUR43.4 million (approximately
$78 million).  The acquisition is subject to customary closing
conditions, including obtaining financing for the purchase, and,
upon satisfaction of these conditions, is expected to be completed
in the fourth quarter of 2005.

The ATM business that TRM has agreed to acquire provides
convenient, on-site cash access at locations predominately based
around fuel stations and convenience stores such as TotalFinaElf,
Snax 24, Texaco and National Car Parks, as well as other sites
including McDonalds and United Cinemas International.  The ATM
portfolio is comprised primarily of long-term customer site
contracts whose locations are averaging approximately 1,000
transactions per month over the last twelve months.

Due to continuing consolidation in the United Kingdom ATM
marketplace, Travelex was pleased to develop and accept this offer
from TRM.  The acquisition would increase TRM's presence in the
United Kingdom to over 7,500 ATM and photocopier locations; and
TRM will service all locations through its in-house service
network.

Banc of America Securities LLC served as financial advisor to TRM
in connection with this transaction.

Deutsche Bank served as financial advisor to Travelex and Snax 24
in connection with the transaction.

TRM CORP: S&P Places B+ Corporate Credit Rating on Negative Watch
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B+' corporate
credit and other ratings on Portland, Oregon-based TRM Corporation
on CreditWatch with negative implications following the company's
announcement that it intends to acquire the automated teller
machines business of Travelex UK Ltd. for about $78 million.  The
U.K.-based ATMs primarily are located at:

   * gas stations,
   * convenience stores,
   * fast food restaurants, and
   * movie theatres.

"The CreditWatch listing reflects uncertainties with respect to
business integration and final financing arrangements," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Lucy Patricola.  TRM already is
integrating a very large transaction, having more than tripled its
ATM base with the acquisition of eFunds in November 2004.  Debt to
EBITDA after that transaction is 4.3x as of June 2005.  Using the
company's current run rate of EBITDA, pro forma leverage is about
3x.

Depending on the EBITDA contribution of the Travelex ATMs and
financing arrangements, the acquisition may or may not have an
impact on the rating.  If leverage is meaningfully increased, or
if free cash flow is strained because of debt amortization or ATM
refurbishment, the rating might be lowered.  If the EBITDA
contribution from Travelex offsets some of the increased debt, or
if the transaction is not fully debt financed such that leverage
is modestly affected, the ratings could be affirmed.

S&P will meet with management to discuss the financing of the
transaction and its impact on the company's financial profile, and
the company's growth strategy in order to determine the final
impact on the rating.

TRUMP HOTELS: Objects to 28 Claims Filed by Non-Debtor Affiliates
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts, Inc., nka Trump Entertainment
Resorts, Inc., and its debtor-affiliates ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of New Jersey to disallow 28 unliquidated
claims -- Claim Nos. 1856 to 1883 -- filed by Trump Corporation,
Trump Tower Commercial LLC, Flights, Inc., The Trump Equitable
Fifth Avenue Company, Trump Restaurant LLC or any of each of their
direct and indirect non-Debtor affiliates.

Charles A. Stanziale, Jr., Esq., at McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney &
Carpenter, LLP, in Newark, New Jersey, tells the Court that the
Disputed Claims are claims for payment, indemnification,
contribution or breach of contract arising from:

    -- transactions and transfers by and among the Claimants and
       certain of the Debtors; or

    -- all leases agreements, executory contracts and other
       agreements among the Claimants and the Debtors.

The Debtors are limiting their objection solely to the extent
that the Disputed Claims seek recovery other than those expressly
afforded under the confirmed Plan of Reorganization.

The Debtors seek the disallowance on the grounds that:

    1. The Disputed Claims are fully satisfied by the treatment
       afforded to Donald J. Trump and the assumption by the
       Debtors of certain of their executory contracts with the
       Claimants pursuant to the Plan;

    2. No amounts are due and owing on account of the Disputed
       Claims according to the Debtors' books and records;

    3. The Disputed Claims lack adequate support or documentation;
       and

    4. The Disputed Claims are claims for reimbursement or
       contribution.

TRUMP HOTELS: James Clancy Asks Court to Extend Claims Bar Date
---------------------------------------------------------------
James M. Clancy, Esq., at Bafundo, Porter, Borbi & Clancy, LLC,
in New Jersey, relates that on Feb. 4, 2000, 75-year old Edna
Bodner tripped and fell while on the premises of the Trump Plaza
Hotel.  A lawsuit relating to the accident was filed in the
Superior Court of New Jersey in February 2002.

According to Mr. Clancy, he represented Ms. Bodner in the New
Jersey litigation since December 2002.  Thus, Mr. Clancy says,
the Debtors were well aware of Ms. Bodner's injury claim and his
representation of her.  However, he tells the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of New Jersey, he never received a proof of
claim or a notice of the claims bar date from the Debtors.

Mr. Clancy asks Judge Wizmur to extend the Claims Bar Date for a
sufficient time to allow him to file a claim on behalf of his
client, Ms. Bodner.

"The failure to receive a notice of the Proof of Claim or claim
bar date," Mr. Clancy asserts, "would act as a failure of
appropriate notice of the same, giving the Court a reasonable
basis to extend the date by which we would be allowed to file a
Proof of Claim on behalf of the claimant."

Mr. Clancy reminds the Court that the Debtors' confirmed Second
Amended Plan of Reorganization does not impair the rights of
personal injury claimants against the Debtors.  Mr. Clancy
believes that the Debtors, by choosing not to discharge the
interests of personal injury claimants, intended to continue to
defend or resolve their claims once the reorganization is
complete.  Thus, he contends, no prejudice will result by the
requested extension.

Mr. Clancy also asserts "excusable neglect" to support the
requested extension.

Mr. Clancy assures Judge Wizmur that late filing of the Claim
will not impact the overall judicial proceedings or the orderly
advancement of the matter through the Bankruptcy Court.

UAL CORP: Files Reorganization Plan & Disclosure Statement in Ill.
------------------------------------------------------------------
UAL Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: UALAQ), the holding company
whose primary subsidiary is United Airlines, filed a Plan of
Reorganization and Disclosure Statement with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

The joint plan of reorganization includes UAL, United and 26 other
subsidiaries that filed for voluntary Chapter 11 reorganization on
Dec. 9, 2002.  United intends to exit from bankruptcy protection
early next year as a much more competitive company with a solid
financial foundation and a continued focus on delivering superior
customer service.

"United has made tremendous progress in our restructuring to
improve performance across the board, in costs, revenue,
operations and service to our customers.  Today, we are more
flexible, more efficient and more resilient.  As a result, United
is now positioned to compete with the best carriers and confront
the challenges of a volatile industry," said Glenn Tilton,
United's chairman, CEO and president.

The Disclosure Statement includes a historical profile of the
company, a description of distributions to creditors and an
analysis of the plan's feasibility, as well as many of the
technical matters required for the exit process, such as
descriptions of who will be eligible to vote on the Plan and the
voting process itself.

Under the proposed Plan, unsecured creditors generally will
receive distributions of new UAL common stock to settle their
claims.  Current holders of UAL common stock, preferred stock and
the 13.25% Trust Originated Preferred Securities would receive no
distribution, and those securities would be canceled upon the
effective date of the Plan.  United has made it clear for some
time that the company expected its common stock to be without
value under any plan of reorganization the company might propose.

The filing contemplates a $2.5 billion, all-debt exit financing
package.  As previously announced, United has received proposals
with competitive terms and conditions from four different
institutions for exit financing.

"The exit financing proposals we have received are a significant
vote of confidence in the progress we have made over the course of
our restructuring, our business plan and ultimately, United's
future -- and in our ability to manage through a complex industry
environment, including unpredictable fuel costs," said Jake Brace,
United executive vice president and chief financial officer.

"United is a vastly different company today than it was three
years ago.  The company has made difficult, but necessary
decisions and used the time well to restructure the fundamental
business," said James J. O'Connor, United's lead director.
"United now takes another significant step forward to formally
begin the process of exiting bankruptcy."

The filing indicates that the Company is exploring the possibility
of a rights offering in which it would offer unsecured creditors
the opportunity to purchase, on a pro rata basis, approximately
$500 million in value of New UAL Common Stock.  The proceeds of
any such equity offering would be used to provide the Company with
additional capital for ongoing operational needs and/or to reduce
the amount of the exit financing facility and further
strengthening the Company's capital structure.

A hearing on the adequacy of the Disclosure Statement has been
scheduled to begin on Oct. 11, 2005.  Court approval of the
adequacy of the Disclosure Statement will allow UAL to begin
solicitation of votes for confirmation of the Plan of
Reorganization.

UNITED HOSPITAL: Volvo Finance Wants to Repossess 2002 S60 Vehicle
------------------------------------------------------------------
Volvo Finance NA asks the Honorable Adlai S. Hardin, Jr., of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to:

   (a) grant it relief from automatic stay in order to obtain
       possession and dispose of its property, pursuant to
       Section 362(d)(1) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, and

   (b) compel New York United Hospital Medical Center to decide
       whether to assume, assume and assign or reject an unexpired
       personal property lease, pursuant to Section 365(d) of the
       U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Volvo Finance owns a 2002 Volvo S60 vehicle that the Debtor leased
from Big Dee Auto Sales for $497 per month for 36 months.

The Lease was assigned by Big Dee to Volvo Finance.

As of Aug. 4, 2005, the Debtor was in default of the payment
obligations to Volvo Finance under the terms and conditions of the
Lease Agreement:

   (a) Net balance due: $22,435.

   (b) Postpetition arrears: $497 each for the months of April
       2005 through July, 2005, together with applicable late
       charges.

Volvo Finance has ascertained that the market value of the vehicle
is $18,550 based on estimated value of the vehicle in average
condition.

Volvo Finance contends that:

   (a) the Debtor is in default under the terms and provisions of
       the Lease Agreement by failing to make the monthly
       payments;

   (b) its ownership interests with respect to the vehicle are not
       adequately protected under Section 361 of the Bankruptcy
       Code;

   (c) continued use of vehicle will substantially diminish its
       value;

   (d) the vehicle is subject to the foreseeable possibility of
       injury by way of accident or collision;

   (e) the Debtor's continued use of the vehicle without lease
       payments to Volvo Finance constitutes the accrual of
       administrative priority claim making a strong detriment to
       the Debtor's ability to confirm a Plan of Reorganization;

   (f) the Debtor has failed to formally assume the lease
       agreement under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code; and

   (g) it is in a more advantageous position to obtain an optimum
       price for the sale of the vehicle.  This will increase the
       possibility of avoiding a deficiency balance, which will
       remove it as a potential unsecured claimant in the Debtor's
       chapter 11 case.

Martin A. Mooney, Esq., at Deily, Mooney & Glastetter, LLP, in
Albany, New York, represents Volvo Finance NA.

Headquartered in Port Chester, New York, New York United Hospital
Medical Center is a 224-bed, community healthcare provider and a

(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 04-23889).  Lawrence M. Handelsman,
Esq., at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, represents the Debtor.
When the Debtor filed for protection from its creditors, it listed
total assets of $39,000,000 and total debts of $78,000,000.


US MINERAL: Asbestos Panel Wants McCarter Settlement Pact Approved
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Asbestos Bodily Injury and Property
Damage Claimants appointed in United States Mineral Products
Company dba Isolatek International's bankruptcy case asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to approve a
Settlement Agreement it inked with:

   -- Walter J. Taggart, the Legal Representative for Future
      Asbestos Claimants,

   -- Anthony R. Calascibetta, the Chapter 11 Trustee of the
      Debtor, and

   -- McCarter & English, LLP.

McCarter acted as the Debtor's insurance counsel prior to its
bankruptcy filing.  McCarter advised the Debtor regarding its
claims against Emar, Inc., an insurance broker and prepared a
complaint on the Debtor's behalf.  The complaint was filed in
September 2001, styled as United States Mineral Products Co. v.
Emar Group, Inc., Docket No. L-8774-01, New Jersey Superior Court,
Middlesex County.

The Asbestos Committee objected to McCarter's fee applications
because the Firm:

   (a) rendered and billed for services outside the scope of its
       retention;

   (b) failed to properly disclose material matters.  McCarter
       intended to be retained to act as Debtor's counsel in the
       Emar Litigation.  The Firm already had a complaint draft
       ready to be filed prior to the commencement of the
       bankruptcy case and prior to submission of the retention
       application.  More than 50% of the Firm's billings are
       about the Emar Litigation;

   (c) submitted billing entries that are meaningless and do not
       permit any evaluation of the services rendered; and

   (d) provided lobbying services for the Debtor to the Offices of
       the United States Senators for New Jersey, which are also
       outside the scope of the Firm's retention.

In the Asbestos Committee's analysis, McCarter billed the Debtor
$1,017,721 in legal fees and $158,688 for expenses.  McCarter is
still owed $54,485 for fees held back and has not been paid since
April 2003 as a result of the objections raised and filed.

McCarter has been paid almost $1,000,000 in the period within 90
days before the bankruptcy filing.  The Debtor filed an adversary
proceeding to recover preferential payments of $962,953.  The
Asbestos Committee recognized that the Firm was rendering services
in the 90 days preference period and some of those allegedly
preferential payments will be subject to defenses.

The Settlement Agreement will resolve disputes among the parties
with respect to the professional fees and costs sought by
McCarter in the Debtor's bankruptcy case for the period between
July 23, 2001, and Oct. 31, 2004.

The proposed Settlement provides:

   (a) a reduction of $250,000 for fees owed by the Debtor to
       McCarter for the period July 23, 2001, through
       Oct. 31, 2004;

   (b) that in the event the Emar Litigation results in actual
       payment to the Debtor, McCarter will receive an additional:

       -- 7.5% of the amount in excess of $8 million to
          $9 million, subject to a maximum payment of $50,000, and

       -- 15% of the amount in excess of $9 million;

   (c) that on the Plan Effective Date, the McCarter Preference
       Action will be dismissed.  But if it will not happen, then
       the Preference Action will continue and McCarter will be
       entitled to assert a $250,000 fee waiver as a defensive
       offset to any liability.

VILLAS AT HACIENDA: Selling Assets to Wells Property for $27.1MM
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Eileen W. Hollowell of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Arizona approved the sale of Villas at Hacienda
Del Sol, Inc.'s real property to Wells Property Holdings, LLC, for
$27.1 million.  The Debtor's property consists of a partially
completed 218-unit apartment complex located in Tucson, Arizona.
Ninety units in 11 buildings had been completed and received
Temporary Certificates of Occupancy.  The rest of the apartment
units are in various stages of partial completion.

CBRE Valuation & Advisory Services valued the property at
$20,050,000.  The sale is expected to close by December.

Villas owes the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development more
than $12,000,000.  The loan is secured by:

   a) a first mortgage, blanket lien on the Debtor's property;
   b) a blanket lien on the Debtor's personal property; and

WATTSHEALTH: Wants to Continue Hiring Ordinary Course Profs.
------------------------------------------------------------
WATTSHealth Foundation, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Central District of California for permission to continue to
retain, employ and pay professionals it turns to in the ordinary
course of business without bringing formal employment applications
to the Court.

In the Debtor's everyday operation of its business, it regularly
calls upon non-bankruptcy professionals, including accountants and
attorneys to perform various non-bankruptcy related services.  The
continued employment of the Ordinary Course Professionals is
therefore essential to the Debtor's business operations.

The Debtor assures the Court that:

   a) no Ordinary Course Professionals will be paid in excess of
      $30,000 per month and the financial arrangements with those
      Professionals have been and will continue to be negotiated
      at arm's-length; and

   b) no Ordinary Course Professional will be centrally or
      intimately involved in the administration of the Debtor's
      chapter 11 case.

Although some of the Ordinary Course Professionals may hold minor
amounts of unsecured claims, the Debtor does not believe that any
of them have an interest adverse to the Debtor, its creditors and
other parties in interest.

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers'
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged. Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals. All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com. Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.
