ADELPHIA COMMS: Liddo Wants to Exercise Termination Rights
----------------------------------------------------------
Liddo LLC, has withdrawn its motion to:

    a. lift the automatic stay to permit Liddo to exercise its
       termination rights under a Cable Agreement; or

    b. shorten the time within which Adelphia Communications
       Corporation must assume or reject the Cable Agreement under
       Section 365.

Andrew L. Morrison, Esq., at Reed Smith LLP, in New York, relates
that on April 3, 1999, Liddo and Benchmark Acquisition I, Limited
Partnership, dba Cablevision of Loudoun, entered into a Cable
Service Agreement.  Cablevision Loudoun agreed to:

    -- install cable within the areas of the Easement to
       provide cable television distribution and transmission
       lines within the Development for the receipt and
       transmission of television signals, cable programming and
       Internet services; and

    -- provide cable programming and other services to the
       residents of the Development.

Pursuant to the terms and conditions of that certain Purchase and
Sale Agreement dated May 18, 1999, the Debtor purchased
substantially all of the assets of Cablevision Loudoun.  In
accordance with the Purchase and Sale Agreement, the Cable
Agreement was assigned to the Debtor and it thereby assumed all of
the rights, liabilities and obligations of Cablevision under the
Cable Agreement.

The Cable Agreement, inter alia, provides that the Debtor, as
successor-in-interest to Cablevision Loudoun, has the sole and
exclusive right to enter into agreements with Liddo to provide
Cable Services or any satellite or other type of pay television
programming to the homeowners in the Development.  The Cable
Agreement obligates the Debtor to pay Liddo $350 per constructed
home.  The Constructed Home Fee is due and payable within 30 days
of home cable installation occupation.

Moreover, under the Cable Agreement, the Debtor agreed to:

    -- offer optional Internet access service to homeowners in the
       Development at a 15% discount off of its regular retail
       rate for the service in Loudoun County;

    -- cooperate with Liddo in maintaining in effect all rights,
       permits, consents, licenses, authorization, approvals and
       legally permitted easements required by the Debtor for the
       installation and use of the Cable System; and

    -- furnish the services contemplated in the Agreement, whether
       the Rights are from governmental agencies, private parties
       or otherwise.

Mr. Morrison tells the Court that Liddo has the right to terminate
the Cable Agreement by written notice to the Debtor in the event
that the Debtor materially breaches or defaults under the terms of
the Cable Agreement.  Liddo is required to give a 90-day prior
written notice of its intention to terminate with respect to non-
monetary defaults and 10 days prior written notice of its
intention to terminate with respect to monetary defaults.  The
Debtor has the right to cure, within those periods, the defaults
identified by Liddo in the notice.

In a letter dated March 25, 2005, Liddo advised the Debtor of its
continuing defaults under the terms of the Cable Agreement.
According to Liddo:

    -- The Debtor has failed to pay the Constructed Home Fees
       accruing and due for Nov. 2004 (totaling $1,050) and
       Dec. 2004 (totaling $4,200); and

    -- the Debtor has continually failed to honor the Internet
       Access Discount with respect to homeowners in the
       Development.

In the course of negotiations to address the default issue, the
Debtor steadfastly attempted to limit the application of the
Internet Access Discount to the most recent 12-month period and
failed to provide credits to the Development homeowners even
during this limited period, Mr. Morrison points out.  Liddo
interprets this as a failure of cooperation under the requirements
of the Cable Agreement.

Absent a cure of the defaults, the March 25 letter informed the
Debtor that Liddo would pursue appropriate relief in the
Bankruptcy Court.  As of April 11, 2005, the Debtor failed and
refused to cure any of the defaults.  Despite the continuing
defaults, Liddo is prohibited from enforcing the termination
provisions contained in the Cable Agreement.

Mr. Morrison further notes that the Cable Agreement has not yet
been assumed or rejected by the Debtor under the provisions of
Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code.  Liddo is aware that the
Debtor's business assets and operations are presently being
marketed for sale.  In the event of a sale, there is equal chance
that the Cable Agreement will be assumed and assigned to the
successful bidder or rejected.  Whatever the outcome, Mr. Morrison
says, there will be substantial delay until the actual decision is
made to assume or reject the Cable Agreement.  In the interim, if
the defaults are permitted to continue without consequence, Liddo
and the homeowners of the Development will suffer substantial
prejudice.

ADELPHIA COMMS: Wants SPCP's Motion on Allowance Claims Denied
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Adelphia Communications Corporation Debtors ask the Honorable
Robert E. Gerber, U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge for the Southern
District of New York, to deny the Motion of SPCP Group, L.L.C. to
reconsider the Order Granting the Debtors' Eighth Omnibus
Objection to the Allowance of Certain Claims.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 14, 2006 the
SPCP Group, asked the Court to reconsider the disallowance of a
portion of Claim Nos. 4712 and 4714, which reduced the claims from
$43,946,110 to $28,302,507.

Shelley C. Chapman, Esq., at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, in New
York, notes that SPCP Group, L.L.C., an experienced claims buyer,
seeks reconsideration of the Order Granting the Debtors' Eighth
Omnibus Objection to the Allowance of Certain Claims, which
reduced and allowed two claims in which it has an ownership
interest, despite the fact that it admittedly received actual
notice of the Claims Objection and failed to respond.

"Not only did Silver Point fail to respond, formally or
informally, to the Claims Objection, but it also may have violated
its contractual obligation to its transferor, the original
claimant, Fox Cable Networks Services LLC and Fox News Network,
L.L.C., by not providing Fox with notice and an opportunity to
respond to the Claims Objection," Ms. Chapman says.

As a result, Silver Point now seeks to remedy its error vis-a-vis
Fox by asking the Court to force the Debtors to re-open the merits
of the Claims -- to the prejudice of the Debtors and their
creditors, Ms. Chapman points out.

The ACOM Debtors submit that Silver Point's failure to respond to
the Claims Objection does not constitute "excusable neglect" under
the law and, therefore, Silver Point has not established cause for
the Court to reconsider the disallowance of a portion of the
Claims.  Ms. Chapman asserts that the cost of a "mistake"
resulting from lack of communication between a buyer and a seller
of a claim should be borne by the contracting parties, not by the
Debtors.

AFFILIATED COMPUTER: Buys Systech Integrators for $65 Million
-------------------------------------------------------------
Affiliated Computer Services, Inc., has acquired Systech
Integrators, Inc., an information technology solutions company
offering an array of SAP services.  The terms of the acquisition
specify a purchase price of $65 million plus contingent payments
based on future financial performance.  The transaction will be
funded with a combination of cash on hand and borrowings under
ACS' existing credit facility.

ACS will leverage this acquisition to increase its stronghold as a
provider of SAP-based solutions, and solidify its market position
with FORTUNE 1000 and mid-market companies.  Systech's services
include SAP consulting services, systems integration, and custom
application development and maintenance.  ACS will also leverage
Systech's SAP footprint to further enhance its BPO offerings and
offshore-based consulting services specific to SAP solutions.

"The acquisition of Systech furthers ACS' ability to offer cost-
effective, end-to-end IT outsourcing to the rapidly expanding mid-
market," said Ann Vezina, Group President of ACS Commercial
Solutions.  "By augmenting our existing SAP solutions with
advanced systems integration, strategic consulting, onshore &
offshore custom application development, and robust hosting
capabilities, we will enhance our position as a comprehensive
provider of SAP services across numerous markets."

Ms. Vezina also cited Systech's strong relationship with SAP as a
deciding factor in the acquisition.  Systech has long been a
premier partner of SAP America, and is one of the few U.S. IT
services firms focusing exclusively on SAP services.  ACS will
build on Systech's success in shaping what is considered SAP's
most responsive and resourceful consulting alliance.

"Systech Integrators has been an outstanding partner of SAP
America.  Together, we have helped many mid-market customers
achieve increased efficiency and business value," said Greg Tomb,
SAP Executive Vice President Field Services - Americas.  "The
combined strengths of Systech and ACS create an attractive
alternative for end-to-end system integration services in the
market."

"ACS is committed to expanding the market for SAP services.
Systech's services, clients, and affiliation with SAP have created
a solid foundation for ACS to offer a full spectrum of SAP
solutions that will generate ongoing opportunities with existing
customers and success in new markets," said Gary Gauba and Sam
Tyagi, Co-CEOs of Systech Integrators.  "The addition of our
client base and employees will help ACS build upon its already
growing reputation in SAP, and broaden its overall capabilities as
a pioneer in IT outsourcing."

AIR CANADA: Pilots Sue to Stop ACE's C$2 Bil. Shareholder Payout
----------------------------------------------------------------
Air Canada's pilots are taking legal action to prevent a proposed
C$2-billion shareholder distribution by ACE Aviation Holdings Inc.
that will restrict Air Canada's ability to meet its financial
obligations to its creditors and compromise the airline's ability
to weather an economic downturn.

"The legal action we have filed is to ensure the long-term
economic viability of Air Canada," says Capt. Andy Wilson,
president of the Air Canada Pilots Association.  "We are asking
that the courts stop the distribution, and prevent the ACE board
from hollowing-out Air Canada and compromising its financial
future."

The court action, filed under the Canada Business Corporations
Act, commonly known as the 'oppression remedy,' says the proposed
return of up to C$2-billion to shareholders is oppressive and
unfairly disregards the interests of Air Canada's creditors.  Air
Canada's pilots are creditors by virtue of the over C$1-billion in
pension obligations that remain outstanding following the
company's emergence from insolvency in 2004.

The lawsuit comes on the eve of an ACE shareholders' meeting in
Montreal where the approval of the mechanics of the asset
distribution is expected. Under the proposal, shareholders of ACE
Aviation will initially receive an undisclosed number of Aeroplan
LP units, but the distributions could include cash and assets up
to the C$2-billion mark.

"While we recognize the right of management to fairly reward
shareholders, this proposed distribution is unprecedented,
excessive and could start us on a path towards another round of
bankruptcy," says Capt. Wilson. "Air Canada is now on the road to
recovery. The proposed distribution could put that recovery in
serious jeopardy.

"We have 3,100 pilots and 2,300 pensioners who depend on Air
Canada for their livelihood. All of the company's creditors,
including union and non-union employees, have made tremendous
sacrifices to save this airline.  We all have a vested interest in
the future of this company."

The restructured Air Canada is now a profitable and growing
enterprise, says Mr. Wilson. However, the removal of such a large
amount of capital could put into question the airline's ability to
weather a normal downturn in the economy and still meet its
financial obligations.

ACPA is the largest professional pilot group in Canada,

ALBERTSON'S INC: Moody's Assigns LGD4 Loss-Given-Default Ratings
----------------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation of
its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the U.S. and Canadian Retail sector, the rating
agency upgraded to B1 its B2 Ratings for Albertson's Inc.'s Senior
Unsecured Notes and its Medium Term Notes.  Additionally, Moody's
assigned LGD4 ratings to the notes, suggesting noteholders will
experience a 60% loss in the event of a default.  

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, Albertsons, Inc., operates about
2500 food and drug stores in 37 states.  Revenues for the fiscal
year ended February 2, 2006 exceeded $40.3 billion.

ANVIL KNITWEAR: Files Plan and Disclosure Statement in New York
---------------------------------------------------------------
Anvil Knitwear, Inc., and its two debtor-affiliates, Anvil
Holdings, Inc., and Spectratex, Inc., filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York a Joint
Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization and an accompanying Disclosure
Statement explaining that plan.

                  Pre-Bankruptcy Negotiations

The Debtors relates that starting in the summer of 2006, they and
an ad hoc committee consisting of representatives of certain
holders of the Old Senior Notes engaged in a series of discussions
regarding a potential restructuring of the Debtors' capital
structure.  The members of the Ad Hoc Noteholders Committee
collectively hold or manage approximately $63.7 million, or
approximately 49%, of the outstanding principal amount of the Old
Senior Notes.

On Aug. 18, 2006, the Debtors say that they had reached an
agreement in principle on a term sheet with the Ad Hoc Noteholders
Committee that contemplated a capital restructuring transaction
through pre-negotiated Chapter 11 cases.  Accordingly, the Ad Hoc
Noteholders Committee and its members intend to support
confirmation of the Plan.

                    Treatment of Claims

Under the Plan, Administrative Claims, DIP Facility Claims, Tax
Claims and Priority Claims are unimpaired and will be paid in
full.

Revolving Credit Facility Claims will receive either of these
treatments:

    (a) the Revolving Credit Facility will remain in place and the
        remaining obligations under the facility will be
        reinstated; or

    (b) the Holder of the Allowed Revolving Credit Facility Claims
        as of the Effective Date will have an Allowed Claim for
        all amounts included in the definition of Revolving Credit
        Facility Claims, if any.

In the case of Other Secured Claims, the applicable Debtor will
either:

    (a) pay the Allowed amount of the applicable Claim in full on
        the later of the Effective Date or the Allowance Date of
        the Claim;

    (b) return the underlying collateral to the Holder of the
        Claim;

    (c) Reinstate the Claim in accordance with the provisions of
        Section 1124(2) of the Bankruptcy Code;

    (d) pay the Claim in the ordinary course; or

    (e) treat the Claim in a manner otherwise agreed to by the
        Holder.

General Unsecured Claims against Anvil Holdings, Anvil Knitwear,
and Spectratex will be reinstated.

Holders of Old Senior Notes Claims, at the election of the members
of the Ad Hoc Noteholders Committee, will receive their pro rata
share of either:

    (i) the New Senior Notes and 9.8 million shares of New
        Anvil Holdings Common Stock, representing, as of the
        Effective Date, in the aggregate, 98% of the outstanding
        shares of New Anvil Holdings Common Stock, subject to
        dilution by any shares issued upon the exercise of the New
        Warrants or any shares or options issued under the
        Management and Director Equity Plan;

   (ii) cash in the amount of no less than $40 million and no more
        than $60 million on terms acceptable to the Ad Hoc
        Noteholders Committee plus 9.8 million shares of New Anvil
        Holdings Common Stock, representing, as of the Effective
        Date, in the aggregate, 98% of the outstanding shares of
        New Anvil Holdings Common Stock, subject to dilution by
        any shares issued upon the exercise of the New Warrants or
        any shares or options issued under the Management and
        Director Equity Plan; or

  (iii) 9.9 million shares of New Anvil Holdings Common Stock,
        representing, as of the Effective Date, in the aggregate,
        99% of the outstanding shares of New Anvil Holdings Common
        Stock, subject to dilution by any shares issued upon the
        exercise of the New Warrants or any shares or options
        issued under the Management and Director Equity Plan.

Holders of Old Anvil Holdings Preferred Stock Interests, at the
election of the members of the Ad Hoc Noteholders Committee, will
receive their pro rata share of either:

    (i) either (A) in the event the Holders of Old Senior Notes,
        as a Class, select the third option, 100,000 shares of New
        Anvil Holdings Common Stock, representing, as of the
        Effective Date, in the aggregate, 1% of the outstanding
        shares of New Anvil Holdings Common Stock, subject to
        dilution by any shares issued upon the exercise of the New
        Warrants or any shares or options issued under the
        Management and Director Equity Plan, or (B) in the event
        the Holders of Old Senior Notes select, as a Class, either
        the first or second option, 200,000 shares of New Anvil
        Holdings Common Stock, representing, as of the Effective
        Date, in the aggregate, 2% of the outstanding shares of
        New Anvil Holdings Common Stock, subject to dilution by
        any shares issued upon the exercise of the New Warrants or
        any shares or options issued under the Management and
        Director Equity Plan;

   (ii) the New Class A Warrants; and

  (iii) the New Class B Warrants.

Old Anvil Holdings Common Stock Interests will be cancelled and
holders of these interests will receive nothing under the Plan.

All Intercompany Claims will be reviewed by the Debtors and
adjusted, continued, or discharged, as the Debtors determine is
appropriate, by, among other things, releasing the claims,
contributing them to capital, issuing a dividend, or leaving them
unimpaired.

At the election of the Reorganized Debtors, Old Stock of either
Anvil Knitwear or Spectratex:

    (i) will be unaffected by the Plan, in which case the entity
        holding an equity Interest in that certain Debtor will
        continue to hold its Interest in the applicable
        Reorganized Subsidiary following the Effective Date or

   (ii) will be cancelled and new equity in the applicable
        Reorganized Subsidiary will be issued pursuant to the
        Plan.

ARMSTRONG WORLD: Inks $1.1 Bil. Credit Pact with Bank of America
----------------------------------------------------------------
Armstrong World Industries, Inc., and certain of its subsidiaries,
as guarantors, entered into a $1.1 billion credit agreement with a
syndicate of lenders on Oct. 2, 2006, according to a regulatory
filing by the Debtor with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Bank of America, N.A., will serve as administrative agent, with:

   * JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., and Barclays Bank PLC, as co-
     syndication agents; and

   * LaSalle Bank National Association and The Bank of Nova
     Scotia, as co-documentation agents.

Walter T. Gangl, deputy general counsel and assistant secretary,
says the $1,100,000,000 Credit Agreement provides the Company
with:

    (i) a $300,000,000 revolving credit facility, with sublimits
        for letters of credit and swing-line loans and
        contemplates a $300,000,000 Tranche A term loan; and

   (ii) a $500,000,000 Tranche B term loan.

The Revolving Credit Facility is currently available and will be
used to support the Debtor's on-going liquidity needs, Mr. Gangl
notes.  The Term Loans are not yet committed, pending completion
of the lender syndicate, but are currently expected by the Company
to become available and to be funded by Oct. 16, 2006.

The proceeds of the Term Loans will be used to fund in part
certain cash distributions required by the Plan of Reorganization
to be made by the Debtor to creditors and to the Asbestos Trust,
Mr. Gangl adds.  The Plan of Reorganization provides for AWI to
issue certain notes instead of making a portion of the cash
distributions in the event the Term Loans are not committed and
funded in a sufficient amount by the time distributions are to be
made to the Company's creditors.

The Revolving Credit Facility and the Tranche A Term Loan will
mature on Oct. 2, 2011, and the Tranche B Term Loan will mature on
Oct. 2, 2013.

Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at a rate
equal to an applicable margin plus, at the Debtor's option,
either:

   (a) a base rate determined by reference to the higher of:

       (1) the federal funds rate plus 1/2 of 1%; or
       (2) the "prime rate" of Bank of America; or

   (b) a LIBOR rate determined by reference to the British
       Bankers Association LIBOR Rate as published by Reuters
       for the interest period relevant to the borrowing adjusted
       for certain additional reserves.  

The initial applicable margin for borrowings under the Revolving
Credit Facility will be 0.50% with respect to base borrowings and
1.50% with respect to LIBOR borrowings, with the applicable
margins subject to adjustment based on the Company's leverage
ratio.  

The Debtor expects that the initial applicable margin for the:

   * Tranche A Term Loan to be 0.50% with respect to base rate
     borrowings and 1.50% with respect to LIBOR borrowings,
     with the applicable margins subject to adjustment based on
     the Company's leverage ratio; and

   * Tranche B Term Loan to be 1.00% with respect to base rate
     borrowings and 2.00% with respect to LIBOR borrowings.

In addition to paying interest on outstanding principal under the
Credit Agreement, the Debtor will pay a commitment fee to the
lenders under the Revolving Credit Facility in respect of certain
unutilized commitments at a rate per annum equal to 0.375%,
subject to adjustment based on the Company's leverage ratio.  It
also expects to pay customary letter of credit fees.

The Credit Agreement requires the Debtor to prepay outstanding
loans, subject to certain exceptions, with:

   (x) 100% of the net cash proceeds of all non-ordinary course
       asset sales and casualty and condemnation events, subject
       to certain exceptions and limitations; and

   (y) 50% of its excess cash flow, subject to certain
       exceptions based on the Company's leverage ratio and debt
       ratings.

The Debtor may voluntarily repay outstanding loans under the
Credit Agreement at any time without premium or penalty, other
than customary "breakage" costs with respect to LIBOR loans.

ARMSTRONG WORLD: Armstrong Holdings Forms Committee for AWI Claims
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Armstrong Holdings, Inc., at a meeting
on September 16, appointed a special committee of the Board to
address the issues with Armstrong World Industries, Inc.

The committee will determine how AHI should deal with its Claim of
the Debtor and AHI's interest in utilizing the Armstrong group's
tax losses, as well as any other issues that may arise between AHI
and the Debtor.  The committee intends to pursue a joint
resolution of the issues with the Debtor.  The special committee
is comprised of AHI Board members Jerre Stead and Edward Sellers.  
Neither of the directors is a current or prospective director or
officer of the Debtor.  The special committee appointed the law
firm of McDermott, Will & Emery to advise them in connection with
the matters.

The Debtor, pursuant to its "Fourth Amended Plan of
Reorganization, as Modified," dated Feb. 21, 2006, ownership by
AHI ended upon the Debtor's emergence from Chapter 11.

All of the Debtor's stock owned by AHI has been cancelled.

On August 23, AHI announced that it has a pending claim in the
Debtor's Chapter 11 case.  The AHI Claim relates to intercompany
charges and credits between the companies.  If and to the extent
the AHI Claim or any part of it is allowed in the Debtor's Chapter
11 case, AHI would recover on such claim on the same basis as
other creditors of the Debtor will recover under the Plan of
Reorganization.

AHI, on August 23, also disclosed that the Armstrong group of
companies, including AHI and the Debtor, may be entitled to
receive a tax refund based upon a carry back of a portion of the
group's tax losses to prior years, which may include a substantial
ordinary income loss by AHI as a result of cancellation of AHI's
ownership in the Debtor.  A study is underway to determine the
amount of that loss.  Depending on the size of the loss, AHI may
also be entitled to additional benefits from carrying forward any
balance of its tax loss and the use of its tax loss to recover
estimated taxes paid by the Armstrong group of companies in 2006.  
The Armstrong group's tax losses may be utilized in different
ways, which may benefit AHI and the Debtor differently, and AHI's
and the Debtor's respective preferences for utilization of the
group's tax losses may conflict.

In addition, on October 2, Judith Haberkorn, Ruth Owades, Jesse
Arnelle, James Marley and John Roberts resigned from the AHI
Board.  Messrs. Stead, Sellers and Michael D. Lockhart, as
Chairman, remain as Directors.

ASPECT SOFTWARE: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation of
its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the U.S. Technology Software sectors this week,
the rating agency confirmed its B2 Corporate Family Rating for
Aspect Software Inc.

Additionally, Moody's revised or held its probability-of-default
ratings and assigned loss-given-default ratings on these loans and
bond debt obligations:

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

2023.  Moody's assigned those debentures an LGD5 rating suggesting

BGF INDUSTRIES: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Ratings
----------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation
of its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default
rating methodology, the rating agency confirmed its Caa2 Corporate
Family Rating for BGF Industries. and upgraded its
Ca rating on $86.7 million Senior Subordinated Note due 2009
to Caa3.  Moody's assigned those debentures an LGD4 rating
suggesting noteholders will experience a 67% loss in case
of default.

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

Headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina, BGF Industries, Inc.
-- http://www.bgf.com/-- manufactures woven and non-woven glass  
fiber fabrics in North America.  The Company also produces other

BRODER BROS: Moody's Confirms B1 Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation of
its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the U.S. and Canadian Retail sector, the rating
agency confirmed its B1 Corporate Family Rating for Broder Bros.,
Co., and upgraded to B2 its B3 rating on the company's
$225 million senior unsecured notes.  Additionally, Moody's
assigned an LGD5 rating to those bonds, suggesting noteholders
will experience a 73% loss in the event of a default.  

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology

BROOKLYN HOSPITAL: Secures PACS Equipment from CIT Healthcare
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Carla E. Craig of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of New York authorized The Brooklyn Hospital
Center and Caledonian Health Center, Inc., to enter into a Picture
Archiving and Communications System lease with CIT Healthcare LLC.

The Picture Archiving and Communications System, or PACS, enables
images such as X-rays and scans to be stored electronically and
viewed on video screens.  This digital imaging technology allows
for a near filmless process with all the flexibility of digital
systems.

CIT Healthcare, an affiliate of CIT Lending, the Debtors' DIP
lender, agreed to lease to Brooklyn Hospital the equipment needed
to capture images and to store and run the PACS software.

The Debtors and CIT lending will amend the terms of their DIP loan
agreement to incorporate the PACS lease.  The salient terms of the
PACS lease include:

     Lease Facility Amount:           Up to $1,500,000.00

     Leased Equipment:                Infinitt Picture Archiving
                                      Communication System

     Lease Term:                      4 years

     Base Lease Rental Payments:      TBHC will be required to
                                      make monthly payments due in
                                      arrears as follows:
                                      $37,328 per month plus
                                      sales, use or similar tax if
                                      applicable.

Among other things, the Debtors' DIP loan agreement with CIT
Lending will be amended to provide CIT with the ability to reserve
$750,000 from the revolving loan availability to cover its
exposure under the PACS Lease.  The Debtor will also have the
option to purchase all of the PACS equipment for $1 upon
expiration of the lease and payment of all sums due under the
lease.

Lawrence M. Handelsman, Esq., at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP,
tells the Court that the improved efficiencies of the PACS system
will not only provide direct economic benefit to the Debtors, but
would also improve the quality of healthcare that they provide and
reduce their potential malpractice exposure through longer-term
maintenance of radiological images.  Mr. Handelsman adds that the
savings realized from the elimination of film and film storage
costs will pay for the PACS.

Headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, The Brooklyn Hospital Center
-- http://www.tbh.org/-- provides a variety of inpatient and   
outpatient services and education programs to improve the well
being of its community.  The Debtor, together with Caledonian
Health Center, Inc., filed for chapter 11 protection on Sept. 30,
2005 (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case No. 05-26990).  Lawrence M. Handelsman,
Esq., and Eric M. Kay, Esq., at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP
represent the Debtors in their restructuring efforts.  Glenn B.
Rice, Esq., at Otterbourg, Steindler, Houston & Rosen, P.C.,
represents the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  Mark
Dominick Alvarez at Alvarez & Marsal, LLC, serves as the
Committee's financial advisor.  When the Debtors filed for
protection from their creditors, they listed $233,000,000 in
assets and $337,000,000 in debts.


BUMBLE BEE: Moody's Assigns B1 Corporate Family Ratings

In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation of
its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the U.S. Consumer Products, Beverage, Toy, Natural
Product Processors, Packaged Food Processors and Agricultural
Cooperative sectors, the rating agency assigned its B1 Corporate
Family Rating for Bumble Bee(R) Foods.  

Additionally, Moody's revised or held its probability-of-default
ratings and assigned loss-given-default ratings on these loans and
bond debt obligations:

                                                   Projected
                        Old POD  New POD  LGD      Loss-Given
   Debt Issue           Rating   Rating   Rating   Default
   ----------           -------  -------  ------   ----------

   $200M Term Loan B
   due 2012               Ba3      Ba3     LGD2       29%

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology

CARMIKE CINEMAS: Moody's Confirms B2 Corporate Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed the B2 corporate family rating
of Carmike Cinemas, Inc.  The outlook is now stable.

The ratings confirmation is based on Carmike's completion of the
restatement process and filing of all its financial statements.
The confirmation incorporates the company's recent bank amendment,
which reduces the risk of non-compliance with bank financial
covenants.

Carmike's B2 corporate family rating reflects high leverage of
approximately 6.5 times debt-to-EBITDA, sensitivity to product
from movie studios, lack of scale, and a weak industry growth
profile, as well as lingering concerns over financial reporting.
Carmike's dominant position in its targeted smaller markets and
strong concession margins, coupled with Moody's expectations for a
return to modestly positive free cash flow from operations in
2007, support the rating.

The stable outlook assumes bank covenant compliance and continued
timely filing of financial statements.  If further financial
reporting problems surface and result in a delay in the filing of
financial statements or Carmike cannot comply with bank covenants,
Moody's would consider a downgrade or negative outlook.  

The magnitude of leverage reduction required to sustain a B1
rating constrains upward potential, but Moody's would consider a
positive outlook with a track record of timely financial
statements and no material weaknesses, as well as expectations for
sustainable leverage below five times.

These are Moody's rating actions.

   * Carmike Cinemas, Inc.

     -- Confirmed B2 Corporate Family Rating

     -- Confirmed B3 Probability of Default Rating

     -- Confirmed B1 Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility and LGD
        2, 29%

     -- Outlook, Changed To Stable from Rating Under Review

Headquartered in Columbus, Georgia, Carmike Cinemas operates
approximately 2,500 screens and 300 theaters.  Its annual revenue
is approximately $500 million.


CELESTICA INT'L: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation
of its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology, the rating agency confirmed its Ba3 Corporate
Family Rating for Celestica International.  

Additionally, Moody's revised its probability-of-default ratings
and assigned loss-given-default ratings on these loans and bond
debt obligations:

                                                   Projected
                        Old POD  New POD  LGD      Loss-Given
   Debt Issue           Rating   Rating   Rating   Default

   $250m 7.5%
   Senior Subor.
   Notes due 2013          B2       B2     LGD5        87%

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology

of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for

CG MULTIFAMILY: Judge Brown Dismisses Chapter 11 Case
-----------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Jerry A. Brown of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Louisiana dismissed the chapter 11 case of
CG Multifamily-New Orleans, L.P.

Judge Brown also ordered the Debtor to submit its disbursement
information for the quarter ending Sept. 30, 2006 and remit the
appropriate fee to the Office of the U.S. Trustee.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 22, 2006,
the Debtor told the Court that it has reached an agreement in
principle with Fannie Mae, its secured lender, for modifications
and the reinstatement of their loan agreement.

                      Fannie Mae Indebtedness

Fannie Mae is the holder of an Amended and Restated Discount MBS
Multifamily Note dated June 14, 2004, in the amount of $65 million
executed by the Debtor in favor of GMAC Commercial Mortgage
Corporation and subsequently assigned to Fannie.  The Note was
amended on Oct. 1, 2005.

The Note is secured by, among other things:

    * an Amended and Restated Multifamily Mortgage, Assignment of
      Rents and Security Agreement dated June 10, 2004, executed
      by the Debtor and the Industrial Development Board of the
      City of New Orleans, Louisiana, Inc., and subsequently
      assigned by GMAC to Fannie Mae; and

    * an Amended and Restated Multifamily Mortgage, Assignment of
      Rents and Security Agreement dated June 10, 2004, executed
      by the Debtor in favor of GMAC and subsequently assigned to
      Fannie Mae.

These two agreements encumber the Debtor's real property known as
the Saulet Apartments.

The Debtor says it filed for bankruptcy when it failed to reach an
agreement with Fannie Mae concerning the use of certain insurance
proceeds belonging to the Debtor but held by Fannie Mae.

                            Agreement

Under the new Agreement:

    a. one or more of the Debtor's partners will make an
       additional equity capital contribution of $2 million to the
       Debtor to be utilized in part to satisfy all of the
       Debtor's prepetition and postpetition obligations; and

    b. Fannie Mae will permit the Debtor to use the insurance
       proceeds it holds and make other financial concessions, so
       that the Debtor can perform necessary repairs to the Saulet
       and allow it to be reopened to the public.

With this development, the Debtor contends that it now has the
ability and intent to satisfy all of its debts and no longer needs
reorganization under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina, CG Multifamily-New
Orleans, L.P. owns the Saulet Apartments in New Orleans,

filed for protection from its creditors, it estimated assets and
debts between $50 million and $100 million.


CIENA CORP: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Ratings
------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation
of its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default
rating methodology, the rating agency upgraded its B2 Corporate
Family Rating for Ciena Corporation to B1 and confirmed its B2
rating on the company's $690 million Convertible Note due 2008.  
Moody's assigned those debentures an LGD4 rating suggesting
noteholders will experience a 66% loss in case of default.

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

CITGO PETROLEUM: Affirms Commitment to General Public in U.S.
-------------------------------------------------------------
CITGO Petroleum Corporation wants to clarify inaccurate and
misleading information about it.

A most recent example was CITGO's decision to allow its supply
agreement with 7-Eleven to expire at the end of September.  It was
misrepresented as a reaction by 7-Eleven to the remarks recently
made by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez at the United Nations
General Assembly in New York.

The mutual agreement to end the contract was made three months ago
after many months of deliberation.  The 7-Eleven contract did not
fit within CITGO's strategy to balance its sales volumes with its
own refinery production.  Moreover, both 7-Eleven and CITGO had
informed the media of the decision long before President Chavez's
U.N. speech.

There have also been calls for a boycott of CITGO products.  Such
an action could harm American businesses and the general public.

The following facts demonstrate CITGO's commitment to U.S.
consumers and the energy market:

   * CITGO is incorporated in the United States and is a U.S.
     company extremely proud of a heritage that goes back nearly a
     century.

   * CITGO was purchased by Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA)
     in 1990, giving the company access to the largest crude oil
     reserves in the Western Hemisphere.

   * Venezuela has been a reliable supplier of crude oil and
     refined products to the U.S. market throughout the years.

   * CITGO's policy includes maintaining and strengthening its
     relationship with its customers in order to ensure that it
     continues to provide quality energy products that benefit the
     U.S. consumer.  This is in alignment with the global energy
     policy of its parent company.

   * While CITGO is a major Venezuelan investment in the United
     States, several American oil and gas companies either have
     significant investments in Venezuela or purchase Venezuelan
     crude oil to satisfy the needs of their customers.  This list
     includes ChevronTexaco, ConocoPhillips, Valero, and others.

   * CITGO has approximately 4,000 employees in the United States
     and, through a network of more than 13,000 independently
     owned retail locations, CITGO indirectly employs roughly
     another 100,000 people who work hard every day to help their
     neighbors get where they want to go.

   * Many of these dealers selected CITGO because of the fact that
     its crude oil supply comes from its own hemisphere and that
     is precisely one of its key strengths.  Most of its
     competitors, on the other hand, buy their oil from countries
     where ongoing conflicts pose a tangible threat to security of
     supply.

   * CITGO is committed to safe and environmentally responsible
     operations and the company will be investing $1.2 billion in
     this key area in the coming years.

CITGO has sponsored many important activities in the communities
where it does business:

   * After hurricanes Katrina and Rita, its employees in many
     locations spent countless hours volunteering to help, and it
     donated in excess of $2 million.  At the time, it is also
     instrumental in ensuring extra cargoes of gasoline from its
     parent company -- roughly totaling one million barrels -- to
     alleviate fuel shortages in the United States.  Several U.S.
     government officials have recognized CITGO's efforts in this
     area.

   * CITGO re-launched its heating oil program in Sept. 21 and
     plans to distribute 100 million gallons of heating oil at a
     40% discount in 18 states.  This will potentially benefit
     1.2 million people, including members of more than 200 Native
     American tribes.

   * CITGO recently donated $5 million to expand the Southwest
     Louisiana Center for Health Services in Lake Charles, which
     serves the uninsured and other people in need.

   * CITGO is the largest corporate sponsor of the Muscular
     Dystrophy Association and it is proud of its 21-year
     relationship with this organization, to which it has
     contributed more than $83 million.

When taking all these facts into account, it is clear that CITGO
remains committed to its employees, customers, marketing and
retail partners and the general public throughout the United
States.

CLUETT AMERICAN: Moody's Confirms Caa1 Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation of
its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the U.S. and Canadian Retail sector, the rating
agency confirmed its Caa1 Corporate Family Rating for Cluett
American Corp.  

Additionally, Moody's revised or held its probability-of-default
ratings and assigned loss-given-default ratings on these loans and
bond debt obligations:

                                                   Projected
                        Old POD  New POD  LGD      Loss-Given
   Debt Issue           Rating   Rating   Rating   Default

   notes                  Caa3     Caa2    LGD4        63%

   Preferred stock         Ca      Caa3    LGD6       100%

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology

COMMSCOPE INC: Updates 2006 Third and Fourth Quarters Guidance
--------------------------------------------------------------
CommScope, Inc.'s management provided updates to its guidance for
the third quarter and fourth quarter of 2006:

   -- For the third quarter of 2006, revenue is expected to be in
      the range of $460-$470 million and operating margin is
      expected to be in the 13% to 14% range, excluding special
      items.  Stronger-than-expected shipments in all product
      segments, especially Enterprise, drove the improved sales
      guidance.  The Company's previous third quarter guidance was
      revenue in the $420-$435 million range and operating margin
      in the 10.5% to 11.5% range, excluding special items.

   -- The Company expects the third quarter book-to-bill ratio to
      be less than one primarily due to stronger-than-expected
      third quarter shipments.   As a result, for the fourth
      quarter the Company expects the slowdown in shipments of
      Enterprise and Carrier products to be greater than normal
      seasonal trends.

   -- For the fourth quarter of 2006, revenue is expected to be in
      the range of $370 to $400 million and operating margin is
      expected to be in the 9% to 10% range, excluding special
      items.

"We are pleased with our expected third quarter performance,"
Frank Drendel, chairman and chief executive officer, said.  "We
updated our revenue and operating income guidance primarily due to
the strong third quarter sales volume.  While we do not expect to
duplicate this strength in the fourth quarter, we expect to
deliver solid year-over-year growth in sales and operating income.

                      Sale of Real Estate

The Company also announced that Connectivity Solutions
Manufacturing, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary, has closed on an
agreement to sell real estate consisting of approximately 70 acres
and a 580,000 sq. ft. building at the CSMI manufacturing facility
located in Omaha, Nebraska.  The sales price for the land and
building was approximately $11 million.  The sale will be recorded
in the fourth quarter of 2006.

COMMSCOPE INC: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Ratings
---------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation
of its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default
rating methodology, the rating agency confirmed its Ba2 Corporate
Family Rating for CommScope Inc. and upgraded its B1 rating on the
company's $250 million Senior Subordinated Note due 2024 to Ba3.  
Moody's assigned those debentures an LGD5 rating suggesting
noteholders will experience a 73% loss in case of default.

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are

COMPLETE PRODUCTION: Moody's Reviews B2 Rated Senior Facilities
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed the ratings for Complete
Production Services, Inc. on review for possible upgrade.  The
ratings impacted were Complete's B2 corporate family rating and
the B2 rated senior secured credit facilities.  Moody's
anticipates this review will be completed shortly after the
release of the company's third quarter results and will likely
result in a one-notch upgrade of the current ratings.

The ratings review is prompted by Complete's progress in
integrating the three oilfield services companies that were
combined in Complete's formation in September 2005 and its
movement from niche player to a more significant market position
in its chosen North American basins.  The company also
successfully raised $290 million in net proceeds from its April
2006 IPO, about a third of which was used to pay down revolver
borrowings while the remainder has been or will be used to fund
acquisitions.  While absolute debt reduction has been limited, the
equity offering and acquisitions combined with robust market
conditions have resulted in meaningful leverage reduction (LTM
6/30/06 Debt/EBITDA and Debt/Capitalization reduced to 2.0x and
41.8%, respectively, as compared to 3.4x and 65.6% at 12/31/05).

The ratings review will focus on a more detailed assessment

   -- of Complete's market position by product line and basin;
      the company's growth strategy and acquisition criteria;

   -- management's continuing commitment to using meaningful
      common equity in funding acquisitions; and,

   -- the company's policies for managing leverage and liquidity
      through industry cycles.

Moody's will also review the extent of the company's exposure to
unconventional natural gas exploration and production activities
and potential impact of lower natural gas prices on Complete's
operations and cash flows.

Complete Production Services, Inc., headquartered in Houston,
Texas, is a provider of services and products for oil and gas
companies.


COMPLETE RETREATS: Withdraws Application to Hire XCMS LLC as Agent
------------------------------------------------------------------
Complete Retreats LLC and its debtor-affiliates withdrew its
application, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Connecticut, to employ XRoads Case Management Services, LLC, as
their claims and noticing agent pursuant to Section 327 of the
Bankruptcy Code.

The withdrawal follows the Debtors' communication with Diana G.
Adams, the Acting United States Trustee for Region 2, regarding
her objection to their application.

                     U.S. Trustee's Objection

The Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 7, 2006, relates that in
support of her objection to the retention of XRoads as the
Debtors' claims and noticing agent, the U.S. Trustee asserted that
Xroads' proposed services go beyond purely administrative
functions.

The U.S. Trustee noted that the Debtors sought XCM's assistance in
the preparation of their Schedules of Assets and Liabilities,
Statements of Financial Affairs, initial reporting package, and
their monthly operating reports.  XCM's services are those
generally performed by a professional employed pursuant to Section
327 of the Bankruptcy Code, the U.S. Trustee said.

The Debtors, however, do not seek to employ XCM pursuant to
Section 327, the U.S. Trustee pointed out.  In addition, the
Debtors did not propose to subject XCM's fees and expenses to
Court oversight and review in accordance with Section 330 of the
Bankruptcy Code, similar to the fees and expenses paid to a
professional employed under Section 327.

The U.S. Trustee maintained that to the extent Holly Felder Etlin,
the Debtors' chief restructuring officer, has the right to
contract for XCM, insider and other issues will arise that would
prohibit XCM's employment by the Debtors.

The U.S. Trustee also noted that the Debtors have not provided
information to show that the fees charged by XCM are commercially
reasonable and standard when compared to those of other parties
offering the same or similar services.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 23, 2006, the
U.S. Trustee sought replacement of Xroads as claims agent to
the Debtors, contending that the XCM Application does not:

   -- provide information as to whether or not the Debtors tried
      to obtain estimates of the costs from competing service
      providers;

   -- provide information as to whether or not the charges
      proposed for XCM's services are commercially reasonable;
      and

   -- support whether or not XCM's employment is in the best
      interests of the Debtors' estates and their creditors.

XCM is an affiliate of XRoads LLC, which may be an insider of
the Debtors, the U.S. Trustee noted.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 21, 2006,
the Debtors sought permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Connecticut to hire XCM as their claims and
noticing agent.

As their claims and noticing agent, the Debtors expected XCM to:

   (a) assist the Debtors and their counsel in the preparation
       of the Debtors' schedules of assets and liabilities and
       statements of financial affairs;

   (b) assist the Debtors and their counsel in the preparation

COMPLETE RETREATS: Withdraws Application to Hire XRoads as Advisor
------------------------------------------------------------------
Complete Retreats LLC and its debtor-affiliates withdrew its
application, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Connecticut, to employ XRoads Solutions Group LLC as their
financial and restructuring advisor.

The withdrawal follows the Debtors' communication with Diana G.
Adams, the Acting United States Trustee for Region 2, regarding
her objection to their application.

The Court previously approved the Debtors' application on an
interim basis, however, the U.S. Trustee objected to the
application contending that because XRoads Principal
Holly Felder Etlin will act as the Debtors' chief restructuring
officer, she is not disinterested, and thus cannot be retained
under Section 327 of the Bankruptcy Code.

The U.S. Trustee further contended that the firm is also not
disinterested because other XRoads employees will serve as
"supporting personnel" for Ms. Etlin.  

                       Debtors' Application

In late June 2006, the Debtors hired XRoads Solutions to assist
them in the management of their business and in the exploration of
strategic alternatives.

In a retention letter dated July 20, 2006, the Debtors proposed
to continue XRoads' employment as their financial and
restructuring advisor.

Holly Felder Etlin, a principal at XRoads, agreed to serve as
the Debtors' Chief Restructuring Officer during the course of the
Chapter 11 cases.  

The Debtors expected XRoads to continue to:

    (a) provide the services of Ms. Etlin, as well as other
        supporting personnel;

    (b) develop, refine, implement, and monitor the Debtors'
        turnaround efforts;

    (c) evaluate the Debtors' strategic alternatives;

    (d) assist in implementing any approved capital structure;

    (e) review, assess and develop action plans of key contracts;

    (f) review and validate the Debtors' cash flow forecasts and
        related processes;

    (g) evaluate the Debtors' business plan;

    (h) assist in the development and implementation of a
        recapitalization plan;

    (i) provide financial information in support of, and
        participation in, the Debtors' investment banking process;

    (j) assist in communications with, negotiations with, and
        presentations to vendors, creditors, and other key
        constituents of the Debtors;

    (k) assist in the development of employee-related plans;

    (l) assume the leadership role for the design and
        implementation of new effective management and financial
        reporting methodologies for the Debtors' business; and

    (m) analyze and lead the Debtors' cash management and related
        activities.

In addition, Ms. Etlin informed the Court that XRoads Case
Management Services, LLC, an affiliate of XRoads, will provide
bankruptcy case support, administrative and noticing services to
the Debtors.

XRoads charged the Debtors a fixed minimum fee of $150,000
per month, provided that if their services total more than 480
hours, the Debtors will pay XRoads $375 per excess hour.

Headquartered in Westport, Connecticut, Complete Retreats LLC
operates five-star hospitality and real estate management
businesses.  In addition to its mainline destination club
business, the Debtor also operates an air travel program for
destination club members, a villa business, luxury car rental
services, wine sales services, fine art sales program, and other
amenity programs for members.  Complete Retreats and its debtor-
affiliates filed for chapter 11 protection on July 23, 2006
(Bankr. D. Conn. Case No. 06-50245).  Nicholas H. Mancuso, Esq.
and Jeffrey K. Daman, Esq. at Dechert LLP represent the Debtors in
their restructuring efforts.  Michael J. Reilly, Esq., at Bingham
McCutchen LP, in Hartford, Connecticut, serves as counsel to the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  No estimated assets
have been listed in the Debtors' schedules, however, the Debtors
disclosed $308,000,000 in total debts.  (Complete Retreats

COMPLETE RETREATS: Taps Etlin & XRoads Under U.S. Bankr. Sec. 363
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Complete Retreats LLC and its debtor-affiliates ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Connecticut for permission
under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code to employ Holly Felder
Etlin as their chief restructuring officer, with a financial
advisory services support team from XRoads Solutions Group, LLC.

The Debtors believe that Ms. Etlin is a qualified restructuring
consultant with valuable experience in numerous corporate
turnarounds, financial reorganizations, and asset sales.

The Debtors previously filed an application under Section 327(a)
of the Bankruptcy Code to employ XRoads Solutions as their
financial and restructuring advisor.  On July 25, 2006, the Court
approved the Debtors' request, on an interim basis.

After multiple communications among the Debtors' counsel, XRoads
and the U.S. Trustee, the Debtors have elected to voluntarily
withdraw the XRoads Retention Application.

Pursuant to the terms of a Retention Letter between XRoads and
the Debtors dated July 1, 2006, and amended on July 20, 2006, Ms.
Etlin, as the Debtors' CRO, is authorized and responsible for:

   -- making decisions with respect to all aspects of the
      management and operation of the Debtors' business and
      assisting in identifying cost reduction, working capital
      turn, and other operations improvement opportunities;

   -- communicating and meeting with creditors and their
      representatives in connection with the formulation,
      negotiation, and execution of a plan of reorganization, and
      discussing the business operations, financial performance,
      and general condition of the Debtors; and

   -- making decisions with respect to hiring new employees and
      terminating the Debtors' existing employees.

Ms. Etlin, together with certain additional XRoads personnel,
will:

   (a) evaluate the Debtors' strategic alternatives;

   (b) assist in implementing any Court-approved capital
       structure;

   (c) review, assess the restructuring impact of, and develop
       action plans for key contracts;

   (d) review and validate the Debtors' cash flow forecasts and
       related processes;

   (e) evaluate the Debtors' business, reorganization and
       restructuring plans;

   (f) assist in the development and implementation of a
       recapitalization plan;

   (g) provide financial information in support of, and
       participation in, the Debtors' investment banking process;

   (h) assist in communications, negotiations with, and
       presentations to vendors, creditors, and other key
       constituents;

   (i) assist in the development of employee-related plans,
       including retention, severance, and replacement plans;

   (j) assume the leadership role for the design and
       implementation of new effective management and financial
       reporting methodologies;

   (k) analyze and lead the Debtors' cash management and related
       activities; and

   (1) assist in the preparation of the Debtors' Schedules of
       Assets and Liabilities, Statements of Financial
       Affairs, the initial reporting package for the United
       States Trustee, and monthly operating reports.

The CRO and any other additional personnel would report to and
operate under the direction of the Debtors' board, which may
terminate the engagement upon 15 days' written notice.

The Debtors' current board of directors consists of James
Mitchell, Michael Shelton and Jason Bitsky.  None of the
personnel employed by XRoads to represent the Debtors, including
the CRO, would serve as a director of the Debtors.  

In addition, XRoads agrees that neither it nor any of its
affiliates would make any investment in the Debtors or the
reorganized Debtors for three years after the conclusion of its
engagement with the Debtors.

The Debtors will pay XRoads a fixed fee of $150,000 per month for
the CRO and Financial Advisory Services; provided, that if those
services total more than 480 hours in any month, the Debtors will
pay XRoads $375 per hour for the additional services.

The Debtors will pay all expenses reasonably incurred by XRoads
for services rendered on the Debtors' behalf.  The CRO and other
additional XRoads personnel will be covered by the Debtors'
directors and officers insurance liability policy.

If any Restructuring is consummated during the term of XRoads'
engagement and 12 months after the termination of its services,
XRoads will receive a Restructuring Performance Fee equal to:

   (i) 0.5% of the first $100,000,000 of the Debtors' debt
       securities and other indebtedness, obligations, or
       liabilities restructured; and

  (ii) 0.25% of all amounts in excess of $100,000,000 of the
       Debtors' cumulative debt securities and other
       indebtedness, obligations, or liabilities restructured.

If a Sale Transaction is consummated during the term of XRoads'
engagement or within 12 months after the termination of its
services, XRoads will receive a Sale Performance Fee equal to:

   (i) 0.5% of the first $100,000,000 of Aggregate Gross
       Considerations paid; and

  (ii) 0.25% of the Aggregate Gross Consideration paid in excess
       of $100,000,000.

The Restructuring Performance Fee and the Sales Performance Fee,
if earned, would be subject to the Court's approval.

Prior to the Petition Date, XRoads received a $150,000 retainer.  
The Retainer will be applied to XRoads' final bill for fees and
expenses, Jeffrey K. Daman, Esq., at Dechert LLP, in Hartford,
Connecticut, informs the Court.  The unused portion of the
Retainer, if any, will be returned to the Debtors.

The Debtors have been advised by XRoads that it will endeavor to
coordinate with the other retentions in the Debtors' bankruptcy
cases to eliminate unnecessary duplication or overlap of work.

"The assistance of Ms. Etlin and her team will provide a fresh
perspective on the Debtors' business, as well as valuable
expertise on various business management and operational issues,"
Mr. Daman avers.  "With the aid of XRoads, the Debtors will be
better able to assess possible areas of cost reduction and other
operational improvement opportunities, as well as successfully
navigate through the critical early stage of these cases and
beyond."

Because the CRO is not to be retained under Section 327, XRoads
should not be subject to the compensation requirements of
Sections 328, 330 and 331 of the Bankruptcy Code, Mr. Daman
contends.

Thus, the Debtors ask the Court to:

   -- treat XRoads' fees and expenses as an administrative
      expense of the Debtors' estates; and

   -- exempt XRoads from filing fee applications or seeking Court
      approval for the payment of its services and reimbursement
      of its expenses.

Ms. Etlin, as principal of XRoads Solutions Group, LLC, assures
the Court that XRoads is a "disinterested" person as that term is
defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.  XRoads does
not hold or represent an interest adverse to the Debtors or their
estates.

DALLAS AEROSPACE: Chapter 7 Trustee Wants Case Dismissed
--------------------------------------------------------
Scott M. Seidel, the Chapter 7 trustee for Dallas Aerospace,
Inc.'s estate, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Texas, to dismiss the Debtor's chapter 7 liquidation
proceeding.

The Trustee tells the Court that the Debtor has an appeal pending
concerning the underlying judgment of CIS Corporation.  CIS has
previously prevailed in two proceedings and has a recorded
judgment at this time of $695,432.23.

The only creditor besides Dallas County, CIS contends that the
Estate has certain causes of action which should be brought
against The Fairchild Corporation and its subsidiaries or
affiliates.  According to the Chapter 7 Trustee, the potential
causes of action may be subject to defenses and will no doubt be
expensive, costly and time-consuming to prosecute and will
benefit, in all practicality, only CIS.

The Trustee contends that clearly, this case is a two-party
dispute as the Court is aware.  He says these two parties, rather
than proceeding in this forum, should bring their causes of action
against each other in the appropriate state court and appellate
forums.

Headquartered in Carrollton, Texas, Dallas Aerospace, Inc., is an
aftermarket supplier of engines, engine parts, and engine
management and leasing services, with facilities in Dallas, Texas,
and Miami, Florida.  The Company filed for chapter 11 protection
on Oct. 1, 2004 (Bankr N.D. Tex. Case No. 04-80663).  McGuire,
Craddock & Strother represented the Debtor.  When the Debtor filed
for protection from its creditors, it listed estimated assets of
$1 million to $10 million and estimated debts of $10 million to
$50 million.  On Jan. 24, 2005, the Court converted the Debtor's
chapter 11 case to a chapter 7 liquidation proceeding.  James F.
Adams, Esq., at Passman & Jones, P.C., represents Scott M. Seidel,
the court-appointed chapter 7 trustee.


DALLAS AEROSPACE: Chapter 7 Trustee Wants Special Counsel Employed
------------------------------------------------------------------
Scott M. Seidel, the Chapter 7 trustee for Dallas Aerospace,
Inc.'s estate, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Texas for permission to employ a special counsel or,
in the alternative, abandon any and all causes of action, claims
or lawsuits.

Mr. Seidel reminds the Court that besides Dallas County, CIS
Corporation has asserted that the estate has certain causes of
action that should be brought against Fairchild Corporation.  The
Chapter 7 Trustee adds that the potential cause of action, which
will only benefit CIS, will be expensive and time-consuming to
prosecute.

The Trustee says that he has repeatedly offered to allow CIS to
employ its own counsel to handle the litigation on a contingency
basis or any arrangement with CIS to fund the litigation.  CIS has
however refused to do either.  The Trustee discloses that CIS has
stated that Patrick Salisbury, Esq., may be interested in pursuing
the litigation on behalf of the estate but has a relationship with
CIS.

The Trustee tells the Court that for all practical purposes, the
case is a two-party dispute.  The Trustee reminds the Court that
Fairchild Group has offered to fund the appeal of the underlying
judgment which represents CIS' claim at no charge to the estate
and that the stay had been lifted to allow that appeal to proceed,
to the extent it ever applied, over the objection of CIS.

The Trustee wants to employ special counsel provided by CIS to be
paid 40% of any and all recovery.  In the alternative, the Trustee
seeks the Court's permission to abandon alleged causes because of
the prohibitive costs of litigating and the fact that putative
beneficiary refuses to fund or handle the litigation of the
estate.

aftermarket supplier of engines, engine parts, and engine

DANA CORP: Retiree Committee Selects DSI as Financial Advisors
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Non-Union Retirees in Dana Corporation
and its debtor-affiliates' chapter 11 cases asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York for
authority to retain Development Specialists, Inc., as its
financial advisors, nunc pro tunc to Sept. 12, 2006,

Trent P. Cornell, Esq., at Stahl Cowen Crowley, LLC, in Chicago,
Illinois, contends that it is critical for the Retiree Committee
to retain services of a financial advisor to adequately respond
to the requests for modification of retiree benefits that will be
sought by the Debtors.

Moreover, the Retiree Committee believes that a financial advisor
will be critical in its ability to deal effectively with other
parties-in-interest in the Debtors' Chapter 11 proceedings,
notably the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors that may
oppose the Retiree Committee's efforts to protect the retirees'
benefits.

Mr. Cornell notes that parties-in-interest, including the
Debtors, are represented by at least one financial advisory firm.

As financial advisor to the Retiree Committee, DSI will:

   (a) counsel the Retiree Committee with respect to the
       administration of the Debtors' bankruptcy estate, advise
       the Retiree Committee members with respect to their
       fiduciary duties, and communicate with the retiree
       constituency and the like;

   (b) investigate the acts, conduct, assets, liabilities and
       financial condition of the Debtors and their non-debtor
       affiliates, the operation of the Debtors' businesses, and
       any other matters relevant to the case or to the
       formulation of a plan of reorganization or liquidation;

   (c) analyze any proposals made by the Debtors with respect to
       their assertions as to the necessity and extent of
       reduction of retiree benefits and developing counter-
       offers to those proposals;

   (d) negotiate and litigate with respect to the rights and
       interests of the Retiree Committee regarding any
       modifications by the Debtors of any prepetition retiree
       benefits provided to their non-union retirees who are
       constituents of the Retiree Committee;

   (e) prepare all necessary motions, answers, orders, reports
       and other legal papers in connection with the Retiree
       Committee's interests in the Debtors' estates;

   (f) participate in the formulation of a disclosure statement
       and a plan and advise the Retiree Committee as to the
       effects and consequences that may result from any plan
       formulated;

   (g) work with other professionals, likely to include financial
       advisors and an actuarial firm, to examine the Debtors'
       financial condition, the projections and analysis of the
       Debtors' financial advisors, their business plans and any
       revisions of it, health coverage information, actuarial
       analysis of the retiree group and the usage and cost of

DANA CORP: Creditors and Equity Panels Gets Court OK to Hire ARPC
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Burton R. Lifland of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York authorized the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors and the Official Committee of
Equity Security Holders in Dana Corporation and its debtor-
affiliates' chapter 11 cases to retain ARPC, as their asbestos
claims consultant, on a joint basis, effective as of July 28,
2006.

The Court ruled that both Committees will have equal access to
ARPC, its consultants, employees, and its entire work product.

In its request, which the Equity Committee subsequently joined,
the Creditors Committee told the Court that since 2001, the
Debtors have employed Peterson Asbestos Consulting Enterprise to
administer claims, bill insurance carriers and assist them in
claims negotiation and resolution related to their asbestos
liabilities.  There are approximately 77,000 "active" asbestos
cases against the Debtors.  The Debtors estimate their asbestos
liabilities for the next 15 years to be within the range of
$70,000,000 to $120,000,000, and that they will have only "de
minimis" liability thereafter.

Since its appointment, the Creditors Committee has reviewed
countless documents regarding the Debtors' asbestos liabilities
and has had at least three in-person meetings devoted solely to
asbestos and related issues, Thomas Moers Mayer, Esq., at Kramer
Levin Naftalis & Frankel, LLP, in New York, said.

Also, there is a substantial likelihood that a plan of
reorganization in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases may permit
asbestos creditors to "pass-through" the case, Mr. Thomas added.

However, Mr. Thomas noted, before the Committee can make a
determination as to how the asbestos liabilities should be
treated, it must, among other things:

   -- test the assumptions and calculations utilized by the
      Debtors in connection with the estimate of their present
      and future asbestos liabilities;

   -- examine the applicable insurance covering the liabilities
      and claims; and

   -- examine the costs and benefits of "resolving" the asbestos
      liabilities as part of the Chapter 11 cases as compared to
      "passing-through" the liabilities to the reorganized
      company.

To accomplish the task, the Committee has determined that it
requires the assistance of an industry expert as asbestos claims
evaluation consultants.

As the Committee's asbestos claim consultant, ARPC will:

   (a) determine whether a plan that "passes through" the
       Debtors' asbestos liabilities is feasible and appropriate;

   (b) compare a "pass-through" plan to the costs, benefits and
       feasibility of resolving the present and future asbestos
       claims as part of the Chapter 11 case; and

   (c) understand and use the estimates provided by the Debtors
       and test the assumptions and calculations on which the
       estimates are based.

ARPC will be paid according to its customary hourly rates:

       Professional                     Hourly Rates
       ------------                     ------------
       Partners and Principals          $350 to $550
       Managing Directors               $275 to $350
       Directors                        $225 to $275
       Consultants                      $185 to $225

ARPC will also be reimbursed for its necessary expenses incurred
while providing services to the Committee.

B. Thomas Florence, president of ARPC, in Washington, D.C.,
assured the Court that his firm does not represent any interest
adverse to the Debtors and their estates.  Mr. Florence maintains
that ARPC is a "disinterested person" as defined in Section
101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

ECHOSTAR COMMS: Can Continue Selling DVRs, Appellate Court Says
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable William C. Bryson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for
the Federal Circuit allows EchoStar Communications Corp. and its
subsidiaries to continue selling digital video recorders while
appealing rival TiVo Inc.'s victory in a patent case.

Tivo alleged that EchoStar willfully infringe U.S. Patent No.
6,233,389, entitled "Multimedia Time Warping System," by making
and selling digital video recording devices, digital video
recording device software, and personal television services in the
United States.  On April 13, 2006, the jury in the U.S. District
Court for the Eastern District of Texas suit rendered a verdict in
favor of the Company in the amount of approximately $74 million.

On Aug. 17, 2006, the District Court granted TiVo's motion for
permanent injunction to prevent EchoStar from making, using, and
selling DVRs in the U.S.  The District Court also ordered EchoStar
to pay TiVo approximately $74 million in damages as awarded by the
jury, prejudgment interest at the prime rate through July 31,
2006, of approximately $5.6 million, and supplemental damages for
infringement through July 31, 2006, in the amount of approximately
$10.3 million.  The District Court denied TiVo's request for
enhanced damages and attorney's fees and costs.  The District
Court also denied EchoStar's request to stay the injunction
pending appeal.

The Court of Appeals temporarily stayed the District Court's
injunction on Aug. 18, 2006.  The Court of Appeals said that the
temporary stay was not based on a consideration of the merits of
EchoStar's request.

EchoStar Communications Corporation serves more than 12.46 million
satellite TV customers through its DISH NetworkTM, and provides
advanced digital television services.  DISH Network's services
include hundreds of video and audio channels, Interactive TV,
HDTV, sports and international programming, together with
professional installation and 24-hour customer service.

                        *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 2, 2006,
Moody's Investors Service affirmed all ratings including the Ba3
corporate family and SGL-1 liquidity rating for EchoStar
Communications Corporation and its subsidiary EchoStar DBS
Corporation following the company's announcement of a proposed
$500 million of EDBS notes.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned a
'BB-' rating to Echostar DBS Corp.'s aggregate $500 million senior
notes with maturities of 2013 and 2016.


ENRON CORP: Judge Gonzalez Approves El Paso Settlement
------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Arthur Gonzalez for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York approved Enron Corp.'s Settlement
Agreement, which provides that:

   (1) Claim No. 12891 will be partially reduced and allowed as a
       general unsecured Plan Class 5 claim against ENA for
       $58,000,000 and partially allowed as a Plan Class 1
       priority non-tax claim against ENA for $70,441;

   (2) Claim No. 14270 will be reduced and allowed as a Plan
       Class 185 guaranty claim against Enron for $25,000,000;

   (3) the parties will mutually release each other from all
       claims related to the Contracts and Guaranty Agreement;  
       and

   (4) all liabilities scheduled by the applicable Debtors on
       their Schedules of Financial Affairs in favor of El Paso
       will be irrevocably withdrawn with prejudice, and to the
       extent applicable expunged, and the scheduled liabilities
       related to El Paso will be disallowed in their entirety.

Before the Petition Date, Enron Corp. and Enron North America
Corp. entered into various contracts with El Paso Natural Gas
Company involving the Debtors' supply of gas and other services
to El Paso.  Enron Corp. issued a Guaranty Agreement as credit
support for the Contracts.  

On Oct. 15, 2002, El Paso filed Claim No. 12891 against ENA for
$127,915,076 and Claim No. 14270 against Enron Corp. for
$25,003,519.  

In a stipulation, approved by the Court on Feb. 15, 2005, the
parties agreed that $70,441 of Claim No. 12891 would be allowed
as an administrative priority claim, with the remainder of the
Claim being reclassified as a general unsecured claim against
ENA, relates Evan R. Fleck, Esq., at Cadwalader, Wickersham &
Taft LLP, in New York, relates.

After further negotiations, the Reorganized Debtors and EL Paso
entered into a settlement agreement to resolve the remaining
claims.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Enron Corporation filed for
chapter 11 protection on December 2, 2001 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case
No. 01-16033) following controversy over accounting procedures,
which caused Enron's stock price and credit rating to drop
sharply.  Judge Gonzalez confirmed the Company's Modified Fifth
Amended Plan on July 15, 2004, and numerous appeals followed.  The
Debtors' confirmed chapter 11 Plan took effect on Nov. 17, 2004.
Albert Togut, Esq., at Togut Segal & Segal LLP and Brian S. Rosen,
Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP represent the Debtor.  Jeffrey
K. Milton, Esq., at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP represents
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.


ENTERGY NEW ORLEANS: Exclusive Period Hearing Scheduled on Oct. 23
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Jerry A. Brown of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Louisiana resets and continues for Monday,
Oct. 23, 2006, at 9:30 a.m., the hearing on Entergy New Orleans
Inc.'s  request to extend the period by which it has the exclusive
right to file a plan of reorganization until Dec. 19, 2006, and
the period to solicit and obtain acceptance of that plan until
Feb. 15, 2007.

The Court's previous order extending the Exclusive Periods will
continue to be effective until the court rules on the Debtor's
request.

Headquartered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Entergy New Orleans Inc.
-- http://www.entergy-neworleans.com/-- is a wholly owned  
subsidiary of Entergy Corporation.  Entergy New Orleans provides
electric and natural gas service to approximately 190,000 electric
and 147,000 gas customers within the city of New Orleans.  Entergy
New Orleans is the smallest of Entergy Corporation's five utility
companies and represents about 7% of the consolidated revenues and
3% of its consolidated earnings in 2004.  Neither Entergy

ENTERGY NEW ORLEANS: Court Lifts Stay to Permit Tax Settlement
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana
lifts the automatic stay for the sole purpose of permitting the
U.S. Internal Revenue Service, Entergy New Orleans, Inc., and
Entergy Corp. and its subsidiaries to commence, continue or become
a party to a proceeding before the U.S. Tax Court with respect to
the Disputed Tax Claims for 1997 through 2000.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 11, 2006,
ENOI objected to the three proofs of claim filed by the U.S.
Internal Revenue Service in ENOI's bankruptcy case:

   (1) Claim No. 88 for Federal Insurance Contributions Act and
       withholding taxes, in the amount of $5,292;

   (2) Claim No. 172, which was replaced by Claim No. 176; and

   (3) Claim No. 176, which asserts both general unsecured
       claims for $348,024,300 and unsecured priority tax claims
       for $2,174,811,897.

The Debtor explains that Claim No. 176 asserts claims for these
tax periods:

EVANS INDUSTRIES: Plan Confirmation Hearing Scheduled on Oct. 17
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Jerry A. Brown of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Louisiana will convene a hearing at 2:00 p.m.,
on Oct. 17, 2006, to consider confirmation of Evans Industries,
Inc., and its debtor-affiliates' Amended Plan of Reorganization.  
The hearing will be held at Courtroom 705, Hale Boggs Federal
Building, 501 Magazine Street in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The Debtors' Plan contemplates the sale of substantially all of
their assets to the highest bidder at an auction.  Proceeds from
the sale will be used first to satisfy administrative and priority
claims.  Excess sale proceeds and certain residual assets will be
transferred to a Distribution Trust for the benefit of general
unsecured creditors.

An entity called New Evans has been designated as the stalking-
horse bidder for the Debtors' assets.   New Evans proposes to
acquire these assets for a $2.5 million cash payment plus the
assumption of debt.  According to the Debtors, approximately
$617,251, plus the Residual Assets, will be vested to the
Distribution Trust under the deal with New Evans.

                      Treatments of Claims

The winning bidder for the Debtors' assets will assume the
postpetition secured claim of Frost National Bank and Frost's
liens will attach to all assets transferred to the winning bidder
as first priority, senior secured liens.

If the winning bidder does not assume Frost's claim, the claim
will be paid in full from the sale proceeds prior to any other
payments contemplated under the plan.

GE Commercial Finance will be paid an agreed amount from the sale
proceeds for the purchase of GE Commercials' equipment.  All
assets encumbered by GE Commercial will be transferred to the
winning bidder.

As of the petition date, the Debtors owed CIT Equipment Finance
approximately $1.2 million in principal and accrued interest,
$57,000 in late charges and $9,000 in attorneys' fees, on account
of various loans.  

If New Evans will win at the auction, CIT's claim will be paid in
cash in an amount agreed upon by New Evans and CIT.  The Court
will conduct a valuation hearing to determine the value of CIT's
collateral if the parties fail to reach an agreement over the
payments due to CIT.

CIT will also be allowed to bid for its collateral at the auction
and offset the total amount of its claim against the value of its
collateral.

The Distribution Trustee will pay the secured claim of ASI Federal
Credit Union/SBA from the proceeds of the pledged business
interruption insurance.

The Debtors estimate the secured claim of Amegy Bank at zero and
concludes that no payment is necessary under this class.

Sydney Longwell's secured claim will be either paid in full on the
effective date of the Plan or assumed by the winning bidder.

All property encumbered by the secured claim of Janice Evans,
Janice Hamilton and Gary Hamilton will be sold and the proceeds
distributed to these creditors up to the allowed amount of their
claims.  The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors is
currently reviewing these claims and may object to distributions
under this class.  The Committee intends to request that proceeds
from the sale of Ms. Evans and the Hamilton's collateral will be
held in escrow pending the outcome of its investigation.

Each of the secured claims of CitiCapital Commercial Corp, HSBC
Business Credit(USA), Inc. and SpiritBank will either be paid in
full on the effective date from the sale proceeds or assumed by
the winning bidder.

Any tort claimant in prepetition litigation with the Debtors will
be assigned all of the Debtors' rights under any insurance
policies covering their claims.  All damages not paid by the
insurers will be treated as general unsecured claims.

Creditors electing to hold Class 14 convenience claims will
receive an amount equal to 50% of their allowed claim, without
interest.

The Distribution Trustee will pay into the 401(k) account of any
creditor holding a Class 15 401(k) claim the full amount of any
unpaid, unmatched 401(k) contributions due under the plan for the
year 2001.

For the years 2002 and 2003, the wining bidder will pay into the
401(k) account the full amount of any unpaid contribution over a
period of five years without interest.

Holders of General Unsecured Claims will receive distributions
from the excess sale proceeds and residual assets held in trust by
the Distribution Trustee.

On the effective date, Equity interest will be terminated.

FEDERAL MOGUL: Court OKs Entry Into Hercules Payment Agency Pact
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware granted the
request made by Federal-Mogul Corporation, T&N Limited, Ferodo
America, Inc. and Gasket Holdings Inc., together with the Official
Committee of Asbestos Claimants and Professor Eric D. Green, as
the duly appointed legal representative for future asbestos-
related personal injury claimants, to enter into a payment agency
agreement relating to the Hercules asbestos liability policy.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 23, 2006,
James E. O'Neill, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl Young Jones &
Weintraub LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, says that the core of the
Hercules Agreement, is the provision of a mechanism for
distribution of recoveries obtained under the Hercules Policy to:

   1. a trust to be established for the Debtors' U.K. and certain
      non-U.K. asbestos personal injury claimants; and

   2. a trust to be established for the Debtors' U.S. and certain
      non-U.S. asbestos personal injury claimants.

The distribution will be made in accordance with the division of
insurance recoveries that the Court previously approved as part of
the U.K. Global Settlement Agreement, Mr. O'Neill adds.

The Hercules Agreement is conditioned on the approval of the U.K.
Debtors' company voluntary arrangements that, among others,
establish the priority scheme of the distribution of the Hercules
Recoveries.
                         Hercules Policy

The Hercules Policy obligates the insurer to indemnify T&N for all
"Ultimate Net Loss" in excess of the retained limit, without
limitation, for claims made or brought on or after July 1, 1996,
that relate to the exposure of asbestos, asbestos products,
asbestos dust, or asbestos fibers that were mined, manufactured,
sold, installed or distributed prior to July 1, 1996.

The Policy covers liabilities of T&N as well as certain T&N
subsidiaries and subsidiary undertakings existing on July 1, 1996.  
However, T&N is the sole policyholder and is the only entity
entitled to payment under the policy -- although it may be the
case that GHI and Ferodo are entitled to a certain proportion of
the Hercules Recoveries once they have been paid to T&N.

The Hercules Policy has an aggregate limit of GBP500 million --
approximately $895 million -- with a retained limit of
GBP690 million -- approximately $1.235 billion.  The retained
limit has diminished to GBP361,802,160.  Thus, before either the
U.K. Asbestos Trust or the U.S. Asbestos Trust can access coverage
under the policy, the retention must be exhausted.

The Policy, purchased by T&N in 1996, is underwritten by T&N's
captive insurance company, Curzon Insurance, Ltd., and reinsured
by three reinsurance companies.

                 Hercules Payment Agency Agreement

The parties to the Hercules Agreement are:

   -- T&N

   -- the U.K. Administrators

   -- Phillip Rodney Sykes and Jeremy Mark Willmont;

   -- the T&N Asbestos Trustee Company Limited -- the U.K.
      Asbestos Trustee;

   -- the Asbestos Committee;

   -- the Futures Representative;

   -- Federal-Mogul; and

   -- Ferodo and GHI, potential additional beneficiaries.

Messrs. Sykes and Willmont will serve as payment agents under the
Hercules Agreement, acting solely as agents of T&N, the U.K.
Asbestos Trustee and the U.S. Asbestos Trust, once the U.S.
Asbestos Trustee has acceded to the Hercules Agreement.

The Hercules Agreement contemplates that after the creation of the
U.S. Asbestos Trust, the U.S. Asbestos Trustees will accede to the
Agreement.  Upon the trustee's accession, the U.S. Asbestos Trust
will be deemed to be a party in place of the Asbestos Committee,
the Futures Representative, Ferodo and GHI.

Even after they will be substituted by the U.S. Asbestos Trust,
the Asbestos Committee and the Futures Representative will
maintain rights to:

   a. consult with the Payment Agents and the U.K. Asbestos
      Trustee in determining an appropriate reserve to pay claims
      handling costs or costs associated with obtaining the
      Hercules Recoveries;

   b. act unanimously and instruct the Payment Agents in
      investing any funds held prior to the establishment of the
      U.S. Asbestos Trust;

   c. consult with the U.K. Asbestos Trustee regarding any
      remuneration to be paid to the Payment Agents;

   d. notify the Payment Agents if no further Hercules Recoveries
      will be paid; and

   e. together with T&N and the U.K. Asbestos Trustee, terminate
      either or both Payment Agent(s) and participate in the
      appointment of successor Payment Agents.

The competing interests of the U.S. and the U.K. Asbestos Trusts
and T&N in the Hercules Recoveries necessitate a structure where
the recoveries are administered and distributed by a third-party,
Mr. O'Neill tells the Court.  Pursuant to the terms of the CVAs
-- and, after it comes into effect, the Debtors' Plan of
Reorganization -- Mr. O'Neill says T&N will hold in trust all
recoveries obtained under the Hercules Policy for the ultimate
benefit of asbestos personal injury claimants.  If T&N should
receive any Hercules Recoveries, those amounts will be held in
trust by T&N for the Payment Agents.  Any Hercules Recoveries
received by T&N will be held by T&N in an account in its name --
the Hercules Receipt Account -- from which the Payment Agents will
have sole authority to transfer or withdraw funds.

The Payment Agents will collect all Hercules Recoveries into an
account to be established jointly in the names of the U.K.
Asbestos Trustee and the U.K. Asbestos Trust -- the Hercules
Waterfall Account.  The Payment Agents will give instructions to
the bank at which the Hercules Receipt Account is maintained to
transfer all funds in the Hercules Receipt Account to the Hercules
Waterfall Account on the day the funds are received, ensuring that
Hercules Recoveries are aggregated as soon as possible into the
Hercules Waterfall Account.

              Agreement is Ministerial but Necessary

GHI and Ferodo are parties to the Hercules Agreement because they
may ultimately be determined to be entitled to a portion of the
Hercules Recoveries and, accordingly, have an interest in
preserving those recoveries pending the creation of the U.S.
Asbestos Trusts, Mr. O'Neill explains.

The Company will enter into the Agreement as the parent company of
all of the Debtors, and because it has certain responsibilities
and rights under the Agreement.

The Debtors assert that entering into the Hercules Agreement is
largely ministerial, but nonetheless necessary.  The Agreement
provides for fair, third-party control over the Hercules
Recoveries are allocated as contemplated in the U.K. Global
Settlement, the CVAs and, when effective, the Debtors' Plan of
Reorganization.

Because the Debtors believe that the U.K. Asbestos Trust will be
established before the U.S. Asbestos Trust, they believe it is
necessary for the parties to enter into the Hercules Agreement now
and provide for the possibility that T&N may receive Hercules
Recoveries before the U.S. Trust is established.  Hence, the
Debtors, the Asbestos Committee and the Futures Representative
want to enter into the Agreement because it is possible that the
Hercules Recoveries will come into the Payment Agents' control
before the U.S. Asbestos Trust is established.

FLEXTRONICS INT'L: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Ratings
-------------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation
of its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology, the rating agency confirmed its Ba1 Corporate
Family Rating for Flextronics International Ltd.  

Additionally, Moody's revised its probability-of-default ratings
and assigned loss-given-default ratings on these loans and bond
debt obligations:

                                                   Projected
                        Old POD  New POD  LGD      Loss-Given
   Debt Issue           Rating   Rating   Rating   Default
   ----------           -------  -------  ------   ----------
   $500m 6.25%
   Senior Subor.
   Notes due 2014         Ba2      Ba2     LGD5       85%

   $400m 6.5%
   Senior Subor.
   Notes due 2013         Ba2      Ba2     LGD5       85%

   $7.7m 9.875%
   Senior Subor.
   notes due 2010         Ba2      Ba2     LGD5       85%

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

GCI INC: Moody's Holds Corporate Family Rating at Ba3
-----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirms the Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
and B1 senior unsecured rating of GCI Inc. and changed the outlook
to stable from negative.  The ratings reflect a Ba3 probability of
default and a loss given default assessment of LGD 5 for the
senior unsecured notes.

The outlook change to stable reflects Moody's expectations that
GCI is likely to grow its operating profit and free cash flow very
modestly over the next few years, but that much of its cash flow
is likely to be directed towards share buy backs, limiting debt
reduction.

The Ba3 Corporate Family Rating reflects GCI's strong incumbent
market position within the Alaskan long distance, cable television
and Internet service markets, with a growing share of local access
lines.  The rating also considers our view that the Alaskan market
is small and the company's exposure to long distance revenues is
relatively high, which limits its growth potential and decreases
the certainty of expected results over the medium term.  Finally,
the rating incorporates GCI's stated willingness to meaningfully
increase its leverage from current levels of roughly 3.5x and our
belief that the company is unlikely to reduce its leverage in any
event, as it directs free cash flow to shareholders via share buy
backs.

Outlook Actions:

   * Issuer: GCI, Inc.
   * Outlook, Changed To Stable From Negative

GCI, Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Communications
Inc, an integrated telecommunications provider based in Anchorage,
Alaska.


GENERAL MOTORS: U.S. Divisions Deliver 338,380 Vehicles In Sept.
----------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corp.'s dealers in the United States sold 338,380
new cars and trucks in September.  The company sold 1,385 more
retail vehicles in September than the year before.  Retail truck
sales, led by full-size pickups and utilities, were up 2%.  Retail
car sales were down 12%, partly due to inventory constraints of
Chevrolet Aveo, Cobalt, and Malibu.  Retail sales of 246,797
vehicles were down 3% on a sales day-adjusted basis.

"GM's truck business was boosted in September by our segment-
leading fuel economy and the addition of the industry's best
coverage, including the 5-year/100,000 mile warranty program,"
Mark LaNeve, General Motors North America vice president for
vehicle sales, service, and marketing, said.

GM continues to reduce its reliance on low-margin daily rental
sales.  Sales to daily rental companies were down 26% compared
with year-ago levels, while its commercial fleet business was up
12%.  This ongoing planned pull-down of low-margin daily rental
sales resulted in total September sales of 338,380 being down 6.8%
compared with a year ago on a sales day-adjusted basis.

"Our retail business was solid in September and in line with
expectations.  Importantly, we continue to experience strong
customer demand for our launch products and industry-leading
lineup of fuel-efficient vehicles.  Having products like the
Chevrolet Cobalt, Malibu, and newly redesigned 2007 Aveo in such
high demand in the market place is gratifying," LaNeve said.

"We're on track to sell more than a million 2006 model year
vehicles this year that achieve 30 mpg or better on the highway.
We will go even further for the 2007 model year by increasing the
number of fuel-sipping vehicle models in the '30 mpg or Over Club'
by 9 vehicles, or more than 60%, to 23 models.  More Americans
every day are realizing we have a great story in fuel economy.

"In addition to our great lineup of fuel efficient vehicles, we
have launched the best warranty coverage of any full-line
automaker with 5 years/100,000 mile powertrain, courtesy
transportation and roadside assistance for each of our 2007
models," Mr. LaNeve added.  "And, there is no deductible for the
warranty, which is fully transferable."

Due to the success of new products, and recent support of the best
warranty coverage of any full-line automaker, GM has seen sales
over the last few months above the targets set in the North

negative implications, where they were placed March 29, 2006.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 27, 2006,
Dominion Bond Rating Service downgraded the long-term debt ratings
of General Motors Corporation and General Motors of Canada Limited
to B.  The commercial paper ratings of both companies are also

Fitch assigned a rating of 'BB' and a Recovery Rating of 'RR1' to
General Motor's new $4.48 billion senior secured bank facility.
The 'RR1' is based on the collateral package and other protections
that are expected to provide full recovery in the event of a
bankruptcy filing.

HEALTHCARE PARTNERS: S&P Rates $295 Million Sr. Facilities at BB
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB' counterparty
credit rating on HealthCare Partners LLC.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'BB' senior
secured debt ratings to HCP's proposed senior credit facilities
consisting of a seven-year $280 million term loan due 2013 and
five-year $15 million revolver due 2011.  The proceeds will be
used to refinance its current term loan outstanding and partly
finance its planned acquisition of JSA Holdings Inc., a Tampa-base
integrated provider of managed care services.

This deal was expected as part of a broader effort by HCP to
diversify its business profile and establish a platform for
extended growth beyond its core market.  Financial risk is
considered modest given the relative size and the associated
financing.  Pro forma debt to adjusted EBITDA (as of June 30,
2006) is expected to be conservative for the rating assignment.

By year-end 2006, JSA is expected to contribute 30% and 20% to
combined revenue and cash flow, respectively.  Business risk is
mitigated by the limited nature of the integration plan and
retention of all the top officers since JSA will essentially be
run on a standalone basis under the HCP platform.  

JSA is presently working through its own integration of Pinnacle
Health Systems, which is a similarly structured, but much smaller,
company based in Las Vegas.

"The rating on HCP reflects its integrated operational
relationship with HealthCare Partners Affiliates Medical Group
(collectively, HealthCare Partners), established competitive
position, strong core earnings profile, and adequate financial
flexibility," noted Standard & Poor's credit analyst Joseph
Marinucci.

"Offsetting factors include geographic and client concentration,
marginal balance sheet quality, and its acquisition oriented
growth strategy."

HCP's material size and scale in its core Los Angeles market will
facilitate its sustained competitiveness and enable the company to
further build on its core market presence.  The outlook also
reflects Standard & Poor's expectation for HCP to successfully
manage through the remainder of its CIS implementation project,
sustain its earnings profile, and prudently manage its overall
growth objectives, which includes the integration of JSA.

By year-end 2007, revenue is expected to be $1.1 billion-$1.2
billion, members served is expected to be 440,000-460,000.  If HCP
meets Standard & Poor's earnings expectations, pretax income would
exceed 10% and financial leverage and coverage metrics would
remain moderately conservative for the rating category and the
company's business profile as debt to EBITDA and interest coverage
would be 1.0x-1.5x and 9x-11x, respectively.


INTEGRATED HEALTH: Wants to Make $30MM Distribution to Two Classes
------------------------------------------------------------------
IHS Liquidating seeks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware's permission to make an interim distribution of
$30,000,000 to the Allowed Claimholders in Classes 4 and 6.

Robert S. Brady, Esq., at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware, relates that since the IHS Debtors' Plan of
Reorganization became effective in September 2003, one of IHS
Liquidating LLC's primary objectives has been to address and
eliminate all obstacles to distribute to holders of Allowed
Senior Lender Claims and Allowed General Unsecured Claims, which
are designated as Classes 4 and 6 under the Plan.

Mr. Brady states that the final pro rata distributions to Classes
4 and 6 cannot be accomplished until IHS Liquidating has satisfied
all allowed higher priority claims for which it is responsible.  
However, IHS Liquidating may make an interim distribution to those
Classes once it establishes sufficient reserves to satisfy all
higher priority claims that have not been resolved.  He notes that
if the fixing or liquidation of particular disputed claims would
unduly delay those distributions, the Plan provides that IHS
Liquidating will seek estimation or establishment of appropriate
reserves in respect of those claims.

Mr. Brady tells the Court that after three years of extensive
efforts, IHS Liquidating has positioned itself to make an interim
distribution, but can only do so if the Court estimates or sets
reserves for these Disputed Claims:

   -- a potential $13,000,000 priority tax claim asserted by
      the Internal Revenue Service;

   -- a contingent administrative expense claim of up to
      $40,000,000 by C. Taylor Pickett and Daniel J. Booth; and

   -- an administrative expense claim of nearly $40,000,000 by
      Abe Briarwood Corp.

The IRS Claim relates to Federal Insurance Contributions Act and
Federal Unemployment Tax Act tax assessments from 1990 through
1995 against debtor VTA Management Services, Inc., plus interest.

The Former Officers assert contingent claims for potential losses
arising out of a lawsuit asserted by Don G. Angell and his
affiliates.

The Briarwood Claim relates to a retroactive purchase price
adjustments under a Stock Purchase Agreement with the IHS
Debtors.

IHS Liquidating believes that if the Disputed Claims were
estimated pursuant to Section 502(c) of the Bankruptcy Code, the
proper estimated value of those claims would be zero.

Since the Claims are technically still outstanding, the Plan
requires either estimation or establishment of reserves for the
Disputed Claims before interim distributions to Classes 4 and 6
can be made, Mr. Brady states.

The proposal would leave approximately $22,000,000 of IHS
Liquidating's funds available for future distributions to the
Allowed Claimholders or to satisfy other obligations that may
arise.

IHS Liquidating intends to allocate $10,000,000 of those funds as
a temporary aggregate reserve to satisfy the three Disputed
Claims, if and to the extent any of them become Allowed Claims
entitled to payment from IHS Liquidating.

As additional progress is made toward the ultimate resolution of
the Disputed Claims, IHS Liquidating will seek the Court's
authority to reduce or eliminate the aggregate reserve to make
further distributions to Classes 4 and 6.

If any of the creditors object to the proposed temporary aggregate
reserve, IHS Liquidating will ask the Court to estimate those
claims at a nominal amount not to exceed $1,500,000.

Mr. Brady asserts that approval of the Motion is reasonable and
fair, given IHS Liquidating's overall financial position and the
strong likelihood that the Briarwood and the Former Officers
Claims will ultimately be disallowed and the IRS Claim will be
settled at $325,000.

IHS Liquidating wants the request approved, without prejudice to
its right to seek authority at a later time to reduce the reserve
to make further distributions to Classes 4 and 6 under the Plan.

INTEGRATED HEALTH: Wants Until January 2 to Object to Claims
------------------------------------------------------------
IHS Liquidating LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware to further extend to Jan. 2, 2007, its
deadline to object to proofs of claim filed in the IHS Debtors'
Chapter 11 cases, without prejudice to its right to seek
additional extensions.

Robert S. Brady, Esq., at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware, relates that since the Effective Date, the
IHS Debtors and their professionals have worked diligently to:

   (i) review the pending claims objections;

  (ii) perform required diligence to determine which of the
       pending objections should be prosecuted;

(iii) prosecute or consensually resolve the pending claims
       objections; and

  (iv) ensure that all disputed claims are made the subject of a
       proper objection before the expiration of the Claim
       Objection Deadline.

As of the Effective Date, approximately 2,000 claims remained the
subject of pending objections.

Mr. Brady notes that as of Sept. 1, 2006, IHS Liquidating is not
aware of a pending unresolved proof of claim.  However, IHS
Liquidating believes it is appropriate to extend the current
deadline to avoid a circumstance where objectionable claims are
inadvertently allowed.

The Court will hold a hearing to consider IHS Liquidating's
request on Oct. 13, 2006, at 9:30 a.m.  By application of
Del. Bankr. L.R. 9006-2, IHS Liquidating's Claims Objection
Deadline is automatically extended until the Court rules on the
request.

INTERSTATE BAKERIES: Darst Wants Stay Lifted to Pursue Appeal
-------------------------------------------------------------
Richard L. Darst asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Missouri to modify the automatic stay to permit him to
pursue his Appeal in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals of the
decision issued by Indiana District Court in favor of Interstate
Bakeries Corporation and its debtor-affiliates.

As trustee for the bankruptcy estate of Krystof Chalimoniuk,
Richard L. Darst filed a lawsuit against Interstate Brands
Corporation in the United States District Court for the Southern
District of Indiana, Indianapolis Division.  The Lawsuit involves
Interstate Brands' alleged denial of leave and retaliatory
discharge of Mr. Chalimoniuk in violation of the Family Medical
Leave Act, Section 2601 of the Labor Code.

In connection with an adverse summary judgment in the Lawsuit,
Mr. Darst filed an appeal in the Seventh Circuit Court of
Appeals.  The Appeal was stayed as a result of IBC's bankruptcy
filing.

Subsequently, Mr. Darst filed a timely proof of claim against the
Debtors, submitted the questionnaire required by the Court-
approved Tort Claims Resolution Procedure and sought mediation.

On July 11, 2006, Mr. Darst and IBC participated in mediation
with Judge Ferderman.  However, the mediation was not successful.

Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, Interstate Bakeries
Corporation is a wholesale baker and distributor of fresh baked
bread and sweet goods, under various national brand names,
including Wonder(R), Hostess(R), Dolly Madison(R), Baker's Inn(R),
Merita(R) and Drake's(R). The Company employs approximately
32,000 in 54 bakeries, more than 1,000 distribution centers and
1,200 thrift stores throughout the U.S. The Company and seven of
its debtor-affiliates filed for chapter 11 protection on
September 22, 2004 (Bankr. W.D. Mo. Case No. 04-45814). J. Eric
Ivester, Esq., and Samuel S. Ory, Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate,
Meagher & Flom LLP, represent the Debtors in their restructuring
efforts. When the Debtors filed for protection from their
creditors, they listed $1,626,425,000 in total assets and
$1,321,713,000 (excluding the $100,000,000 issue of 6.0% senior
subordinated convertible notes due August 15, 2014 on August 12,
2004) in total debts. (Interstate Bakeries Bankruptcy News, Issue

J. RAY MCDERMOTT: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation of
its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the oilfield service and refining and marketing
sectors last week, the rating agency revised its Corporate Family
Rating for J. Ray McDermott, S.A., to B2 from B1.

Moody's also raised its rating on the company's Senior Secured
Guaranteed Revolving Credit Facility, and Senior Secured
Guaranteed Letter of Credit Facility to Ba3 from B1, and assigned
those credit facilities an LGD2 rating suggesting a 24% projected
loss-given default.

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).  

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, J. Ray McDermott, S.A. -- a
McDermott International subsidiary -- designs, fabricates, and
installs platforms and pipelines for offshore oil and gas
production.  The company's primary areas of operation include the
Gulf of Mexico, the Asia/Pacific region, the Middle East, and the
Caspian Sea.


KMART CORP: Court Approves Pact Resolving Conaway's $19.6MM Claim
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois
approved a stipulation resolving Charles Conaway's claim against
Kmart Corporation.

In the Stipulation, the parties agree:

    * that Mr. Conaway's proof of claim is allowed as a general,
      prepetition, unsecured, non-priority Class 5 Claim for
      $1,250,000, and entitled to the treatment afforded holders
      of allowed Class 5 Claims under the Debtors' Plan of
      Reorganization.  The $1,250,000 Settlement Amount is not
      subject to set-off, offset, or any other defense of any
      kind;

    * on an initial distribution to Mr. Conaway on account of the
      Allowed Conaway Claim -- in an amount equal to 95% of his
      pro rata share of the trade vendor/lease rejection
      claimholder shares.  The remaining portion of the Allowed
      Conaway Claim will receive distributions as otherwise
      provided for in the Plan;

    * within five business days of payment of the Settlement
      Amount, Mr. Conaway will withdraw with prejudice (i) the
      Conaway Proof of Claim, along with any other outstanding
      claims asserted in any of the Debtors' bankruptcy cases, and
      (ii) his request to overrule; and

    * as of September 11, 2006, Kmart and Conaway forever released
      each other from any liability, including all claims relating
      to, or arising out of the Conaway Proof of Claim and the
      arbitration.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 8, 2006,
Kmart asked the Court to disallow Mr. Conaway's Proof of Claim
in its entirety, or, in the alternative, equitably subordinate the
Claim.

Mr. Conaway, Kmart's former chairman and chief executive officer,
filed Claim No. 38498 against Kmart for $19,635,003.  Mr. Conway's
claim sought recovery of amounts due under his 2000 Employment
Agreement.  The Claim also credits all amounts paid to Mr. Conaway
under his March 11, 2002 Separation Agreement, in accordance with
the Court's order authorizing payment of severance benefits.

The amount of Mr. Conaway's allowable compensation is $3,025,000
for wages plus $5,500 for the value of benefits, William J.
Barrett, Esq., at Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum Perlman & Nagelberg
LLP, in Chicago, Illinois, told the Court.

Because Mr. Conaway has alleged no amounts that were actually due
and owing on the Petition Date without acceleration, the amount
subject to Section 502(b)(7)(B) of the Bankruptcy Code inclusion
is zero, Mr. Barrett said.

Mr. Barrett asserted that because Mr. Conaway's receipt of
$4,039,708 not only resulted in his receiving a full distribution
on his Proof of Claim but also caused him to be overcompensated,
the Proof of Claim should be disallowed in full, and Mr. Conaway
should be required to disgorge the overage.

To the extent the Proof of Claim is not disallowed, Mr. Barrett
maintained that Mr. Conaway's inequitable conduct toward creditors
requires that any remaining claims for compensation be equitably
subordinated.

"To allow further claims for excessive compensation by an
executive who deliberately misled the very creditors whose
recoveries his claims would dilute, offends the most fundamental
notions of equity upon which the Bankruptcy Code is predicated,"
Mr. Barrett emphasized.

KMART CORP: GPS Says It Has No Duty to Produce Multiple Doc Forms
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Global Property Services, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Illinois to deny Kmart Corporation's
request to compel GPS to produce electronic documents in native,
electronic format.

David A. Newby, Esq., at Johnson & Newby, LLC, in Chicago,
Illinois, relates that GPS provided Kmart with unfettered access
to its working accounting database.  Kmart could review,
manipulate, and print financial reports directly from GPS'
accounting database.  Counsel for GPS subsequently labeled and
produced approximately 6,100 pages of documents -- the Peachtree
Documents -- that Kmart generated from its review.

Mr. Newby argues that the fact that Kmart's expert wishes to
manipulate the information does not give rise to a heightened
duty on the part of GPS to produce the information in multiple,
alternative formats.

Moreover, Mr. Newby asserts that Kmart fails to provide the Court
with authority to support its request.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 15, 2006,
Kmart asked the Court to compel GPS to produce the responsive
information maintained in GPS' accounting database in its native,
electronic format.

GPS provided landscaping, parking lot sweeping, and snow removal
services for Kmart Corporation before Kmart filed for bankruptcy.
GPS had individual written standard form contracts with 230
individual Kmart stores.

George R. Mesires, Esq., at Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum Perlman
& Nagelberg LLP, in Chicago, Illinois, told the Court that GPS
continues to defy the rules governing the production of documents.

Mr. Mesires recounted that GPS initially refused to produce the
financial documents that purportedly support GPS' $20,000,000
claim until Kmart filed a request to compel.  Now, GPS refuses to
produce the documents in their native, electronic format, Mr.
Mesires said.

Following Kmart's review of GPS' financial data, Kmart designated
numerous reports and data sets for copying.  GPS, however,
refused to copy the documents as it had presented for inspection,
and stripped the financial data from its native, software
environment.  GPS printed hard copies, which differ vastly from
how the financial data is maintained, Mr. Mesires complained.

The law does not allow GPS to transform a dynamic, electronic
database into plain pieces of paper, Mr. Mesires argued.

The Troubled Company Reporter on Apr. 4, 2006, notes that GPS
filed two claims against Kmart for $20,000,000 asserting:

   (1) breach of contract,

   (2) promissory estoppel,

   (3) unjust enrichment,

   (4) defamation,

   (5) misappropriation of trade secrets, and

   (6) tortious interference with contracts, business
       relationships and business expectancies.

Kmart asked GPS to produce financial information and other
documents supporting its claim.

GPS said it has not denied Kmart any discovery.  However,
GPS considered Kmart's arguments for the production of financial
information and agreed to produce the requested information.

KMART CORP: Recaps Summary Judgment Request on Eagle's $329K Claim
------------------------------------------------------------------
Kmart Corporation reiterates its request filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois seeking
summary judgment disallowing the claim filed by Eagle Janitorial
Services, Inc., for services performed in California and any
claims for interest.

George R. Mesires, Esq., at Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum Perlman
& Nagelberg LLP, in Chicago, Illinois, relates that despite the
Court granting Eagle leave to file an amended response to the
summary judgment request, Eagle again failed to identify the
basis for its claim for interest.  Thus, Eagle fails to defeat
Kmart's summary judgment request with respect to the claim for
interest.

Mr. Mesires points out that instead of marshaling any evidence of
the existence of an "open book account" in its business with
Kmart, Eagle argues that Kmart has failed to sustain its burden
for judgment in its favor on the request.

Mr. Mesires argues that Eagle's arguments are red-herrings and
should not distract the Court from Eagle's own repeated failure
to demonstrate that facts exist to defeat Kmart's request.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 13, 2006,
for reasons stated in open court, the Honorable Susan Pierson
Sonderby denied without prejudice Kmart's request to stay
discovery relating to Eagle's invoices and claims against the
Debtor's stores in California.

The Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 24, 2006 relates that
Kmart sought summary judgment from the Court to disallow:

    (i) Eagle Janitorial's claim for services performed in
        California; and

   (ii) any claim for interest, other charges, or not otherwise
        supported with documentation.

On July 29, 2002, Eagle Janitorial filed Claim No. 36815 asserting
$329,452 for janitorial services provided to Kmart stores located
in four states.

The Claim is based on 201 invoices, of which 193 are for services
provided to Kmart stores in California.  The invoices show
charges totaling $214,075, which is $115,377 less than the face
amount of Claim No. 36815.

Of the Total Invoice Amount, $201,860 is for services rendered to
Kmart stores in California.

Kmart objected to Eagle's claim asserting that the claim lacked
sufficient documentation based on Kmart's books and records.

In response, Eagle contended that its entire claim is valid
based on California's limitation of action statutes and applicable
California case law, which provide that Eagle's entire Claim is
subject to a four-year statute of limitation that begins
to run on the last date of service or payment by Kmart of the
account.

Eagle also contended that it was unable to state what Kmart's
records might show because Kmart has refused to respond
to Eagle's discovery requests and that the non-existence of
documents in Kmart's books and records is far from
conclusive that Kmart is not liable for Eagle's Claim.

LE GOURMET: Taps Minken & Associates for Tax Advisory Services
--------------------------------------------------------------
Le Gourmet Chef, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the

LIFEPOINT HOSPITALS: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation of
its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the U.S. Hospital and Long-term Care sectors this
week, the rating agency confirmed its Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
for LifePoint Hospitals, Inc.

Additionally, Moody's revised or held its probability-of-default
ratings and assigned loss-given-default ratings on these loans and
bond debt obligations:

                                                   Projected
                        Old POD  New POD  LGD      Loss-Given

   3.25% Convertible
   Senior Subordinated
   Notes due 2025         B2       B2      LGD6       94%

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
umeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood that
any entity within a corporate family will default on any of its
debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

Moody's also revised its rating on the company's 1.875% Senior
Subordinate Convertible Notes Due 2025 to B1 from B2, and assigned
those debentures an LGD5 rating suggesting noteholders will
experience a 73% loss in the event of a default.

MESABA AVIATION: Committee Wants to Commence Actions Against MAIR
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in Mesaba Aviation
Inc.'s chapter 11 proceedings sought and obtained approval from
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota to
investigate and analyze MAIR Holding, Inc.'s relationship and
transactions with the Debtor.

The Committee wants to pursue discovery of the Debtor's
relationship with its direct parent company to determine if the
Debtor's estate has any potential causes of action against MAIR or
any other parties to recover or avoid prepetition transactions.

Specifically, the Creditors Committee obtained permission to take
discovery of MAIR to the full extent permitted by Rule 2004 of
the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, Thomas J. Lallier,
Esq., at Foley & Mansfield, P.L.L.P, in Minneapolis, Minnesota,
recounts.

The Court directed MAIR to provide requested documents to the
Creditors Committee, and make available for deposition certain of
it officials and employees.  The Rule 2004 Order established a
timeline for MAIR's production of documents and officials and
employees, and as of August 24, 2006, the Creditors Committee was
in the process of taking discovery in accordance with established
procedures.

Before the Petition Date, the Debtor engaged in transactions with
MAIR involving significant transfers of funds to MAIR.

                 Stipulation on Claim Prosecution

Since the Petition Date, the Creditors Committee and the Debtor
have engaged in good faith discussions regarding the
investigation and prosecution of any potential causes of action
the estate may have against the Debtor's insiders, including
MAIR.  The Debtor and the Committee agree that the investigation
and prosecution of any claims should be done by the Committee.

Accordingly, the Debtor and the Creditors Committee stipulate
that:

    (a) The Committee will have exclusive standing and authority
        to investigate, analyze, pursue, settle or otherwise
        resolve any and all causes of action, including
        subordination claims the Debtor's estate may have against
        MAIR, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates, or
        agents and representatives, whether the causes of action
        arise under the Bankruptcy Code or non-bankruptcy law;

    (b) The Committee will be fully authorized and empowered to
        take all actions necessary to investigate, analyze,
        prosecute, settle or otherwise resolve the Insider Claims
        in the Committee's sole discretion, including:

        (1) conducting discovery related to the Insider Claims;

        (2) determining whether to bring or file any lawsuit or
            pleading of any kind relating to the Insider Claims;

        (3) preparing and filing any motion, complaint, or other
            pleading to pursue the Insider Claims; and

        (4) resolving any Insider Claims through litigation or
            settlement, subject to the Debtor's right to be heard
            and Bankruptcy Court approval; and

    (c) The Committee's standing and authorization to
        investigate, analyze, pursue, settle or otherwise resolve
        the Insider Claims will be preserved and confirmed under
        Section 1123(b)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code in any plan
        filed under Section 1121 of the Bankruptcy Code.

                  Stipulation Must be Approved

The parties believe that the Creditors Committee, having
investigated the existence of any potential claims against MAIR,
is best suited to commence and prosecute the Insider Claims.

Moreover, while the Debtor's counsel has acted in the utmost good
faith throughout the Debtor's Chapter 11 case, there are inherent
conflicts of interest in the prosecution of claims against the
Debtor's corporate parent by the Debtor.  Prosecution of the
claims by the Creditors Committee will resolve any potential or
actual conflicts, Mr. Lallier explains.

The Creditors Committee, hence, asks the Court to approve its
stipulation with the Debtor in its entirety.

Mr. Lallier notes that the Creditors Committee has a significant
interest in the commencement and prosecution of the claims
against MAIR because the potential claims to be prosecuted, if
successful, will result in recoveries that will inure primarily
to the benefit of the unsecured creditors, as there are few
secured claims against the Debtor's estate.

Unless a response is filed and delivered no later than
September 7, 2006, or served and filed by mail not later than
September 1, the Court may grant the Creditors Committee's
request without a hearing.

                          MAIR Objects

MAIR Holdings wants the Court to compel the Committee to present
adequate evidence in support of the Committee's request to enter
into a stipulation with the Debtor.

The Creditors Committee should be required to establish an
appropriate factual record upon which the request can be granted,
Kenric D. Kattner, Esq., at Haynes and Boone, LLP, in Houston,
Texas, asserts.

Mr. Kattner notes that the Creditors Committee should present its
evidence without resorting to "in camera" discussion.

"Other than vague references to the desire to protect 'attorney
client work product,' the Creditors Committee has not stated any
basis to close the proceedings related to this contested matter,"
Mr. Kattner explains.

MAIR reserves all its rights regarding the request, including the
right to examine witnesses at the hearing.

                      Committee Talks Back

However, Mr. Lallier argues that MAIR has no reasonable basis
to suggest that it needs additional facts to assess the
stipulation between the Debtors and the Creditors Committee.

"Notably absent from MAIR's response is any substantive objection
to the requested relief," Mr. Lallier says.  "MAIR's objection
cites absolutely no authority -- either legal or factual -- that
the request is improper."

In addition, Mr. Lallier continues, there are no factual issues
raised in the request or MAIR's objection that need to be
addressed through live testimony.

The Creditors Committee notes that it is merely seeking the
Court's "imprimatur" that it be authorized, with the Debtor's
consent, to prosecute claims held by the estate.

Mr. Lallier points out that the standard for allowing the
Creditors Committee to prosecute claims is a weighing by the
Court of four factors:

    (1) whether the defendants were insiders of the debtor;

    (2) whether the debtor was fully aware of the committee's
        intent to file the actions;

    (3) whether time was of the essence in filing the complaints;
        and

    (4) whether there was any likelihood of confusion as to which
        party would pursue the claims.

None of the four factors requires testimony or the development of
any additional factual record, Mr. Lallier contends.  He further
submits that there can be no reasonable dispute concerning the
application of the standard because:

    (a) MAIR is an insider of the Debtor under Sections 101(2)
        and (31) of the Bankruptcy Code as a matter of law.  The
        existing record in the Debtor's bankruptcy case is more
        than sufficient to establish MAIR's relation to the
        Debtor;

    (b) There is no reason to delay prosecuting claims for the
        recovery of assets on behalf of the Debtor's estate; and

    (c) The stipulation sets forth the Debtor's express written
        agreement that the Creditors Committee will prosecute the
        claims.

Mr. Lallier informs the Court that not a single party-in-interest
has opposed the request other than MAIR, the entity against which
claims would be asserted.  Even assuming that MAIR has proper
standing to object to the request, it certainly does not have any
credible or legally cognizable reason to try to dictate the party
that prosecutes the claims against it, Mr. Lallier says.

MONTGOMERY WARD: $2.4 Mil. Payments to OTC Were Not Preferential
----------------------------------------------------------------
Montgomery Ward, LLC, sued OTC International, Ltd., to recover
payments made to the jewelry wholesaler within the 90-day period
prior to Montgomery Ward's bankruptcy filing (Bankr. D. Del. Adv.
Pro. No. 02-9282).  During the 90-day preference period,
Montgomery Ward issued 13 checks totaling $2,395,936.40 to OTC.  
OTC argued that all of the payments were made in the ordinary
course of business and were not subject to recapture by the
Debtor.  Montgomery Ward responded that a reduction in payment
terms from 60 days to 30 days just prior to the preference period
prevents the payments from being ordinary.

In a decision published at 2006 WL 2642116, the Honorable Raymond
T. Lyons agrees with OTC, and gives three reasons for his
decision:  

     (1) Montgomery Ward continued its practice of weekly payments
         of vendor invoices by the due date;

     (2) the change in terms was ordinary between the parties; and

     (3) OSI continued to ship without reservation and never
         engaged in any collection activity.

Montgomery Ward operated hundreds of retail department stores
throughout the nation for more than a century.  On July 7, 1997,
it filed a petition under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.  A plan of
reorganization was confirmed on July 25, 1999, and Montgomery Ward
emerged as a wholly-owned subsidiary of GE Capital Corp.  Its
business plan called for increased sales and a store-remodeling
program to attract the modern consumer.  Financing was arranged
through loans from major banks as well as equity, debt and credit
enhancements by GE Capital.  The reorganization did not meet GE
Capital's expectations.  Following its second disappointing
Christmas season after reorganization, Montgomery Ward filed for
bankruptcy a second time on December 28, 2000 (Bankr.D. Del. Case
No. 00-4667).  The Debtor immediately announced its plan to
liquidate and set out to do just that.  A plan of liquidation
proposed by the Creditors Committee was confirmed on August 6,
2002.  A Plan Administrator, John L. Palmer, now controls the
Debtor and has nearly completed his work.


MORGAN STANLEY: S&P Affirms $3 Million Class A-3 Notes' B+ Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B+' rating on
Morgan Stanley ACES SPC's $3 million class A-3 secured fixed-rate
notes from series 2006-8 and removed it from CreditWatch, where it
was placed with negative implications Aug. 29, 2006.

The rating action reflects the Sept. 21, 2006, affirmation of the
rating on the underlying securities for class A-3, the $1 billion
8% senior notes issued by Cablevision Systems Corp., and its
removal from CreditWatch negative.

Morgan Stanley ACES SPC's $46 million secured fixed-rate notes
series 2006-8 is a swap-independent synthetic transaction is weak-
linked to the reference obligations on the underlying collateral
for each class.

NANOVATION TECH: Letter Was Insufficient to Trigger D&O Coverage
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Pamela S. Hollis of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois denied a motion for summary
judgments brought by Barry Chatz, the appointed Chapter 7 Trustee
of the estates of Nanovation Technologies, Inc., and Nanovation
Technologies of Michigan, Inc., against National Union Fire
Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, Penn., Federal Insurance Company,
and Twin City Fire and Insurance Company.

The Court found that the Debtor's prepetition letter, which
informed the insurance broker of the Debtor's plan to file for
bankruptcy, was an insufficient "notice of circumstances" to
trigger coverage under the Debtor's "claims-made" Directors and
Officers liability insurance policies.

Instead, Judge Hollis granted the requests of the three insurance
companies summary judgment in the Trustee's lawsuit against them.

                            Background

On May 7, 2002, Mr. Chatz filed a lawsuit against certain of
Nanovation's directors and officers.  The Defendants in the D & O
Complaint are:

    -- former directors: Stephen Barney, James Davidson, Joseph
       Carr, David Grubb and Daniel Dorman;

    -- former officers and directors: George Robert Tatum (and a
       related limited partnership), Robert Chaney, John Kenning,
       Gary Bjorklund and Robert Bratter;

    -- former officers: Seth Joseph (and two related limited
       partnerships) and Mclba Gitten; and

    -- former general counsel: Howard Gitten.

After filing for the D & O Complaint, Mr. Chatz also filed an
adversary complaint (N.D. Ill. Civil Action No. 02-01680) against
the three insurance companies that issued Debtor-corporation's
Directors and Officers liability insurance policies, seeking a
declaration that the policies were assets of the bankruptcy estate
and that coverage existed under the policies.

                      The Insurance Policies

The Debtor had three separate D & O liability insurance policies:

     * First, the primary policy, which was issued by National
       Union, a subsidiary of American International Group, Inc.,
       with an original policy period of Oct. 8, 2000 to Oct. 8,
       2001, and a $5 million limit.  The policy was delivered to
       the Debtor's office in Florida.  Vice president of Finance
       and Treasurer John Ofenloch, who worked with the Debtor's
       insurance broker Marsh & McClennan in obtaining quotes for
       the D & O insurance and other type of insurance on the
       Debtor's assets, negotiated the policies.  National Union
       extended the term of the Primary Policy six months so that
       the policy remained in effect from Oct. 8, 2000, to
       April 8, 2002.

     * Second, the First Layer Excess Policy, which was issued by
       Federal Insurance, provides $10 million in additional
       coverage.  

     * Third, the $10 million Second Layer Excess Policy issued by
       Twin City.  

Both Excess Policies had effective dates same with the National
Union's original policy period.  In addition, both policies are
commonly known as "following form" policies in insurance industry,
which means that they followed and included the terms and
conditions of the Primary Policy.  On the other hand, the Primary
Policy is a claims-made policy, which means it covers only claims
made during the policy period rather than claims arising out of
occurrences during the policy period.

Aside from those policies, the Debtor also had a Technology
Liability Insurance Policy, issued by American International
Specialty Lines Insurance Company, a different member company of
AIG from National Union.  The ProTech Policy stated that coverage
would be provided for claims during the policy period.  
Furthermore, that policy was an insurance policy covering claims
of wrongful acts in the Debtor's performance of technology
services or failure of technology products.

                       The Ofenloch Letter

On July 24, 2001, the day before the Debtor filed for bankruptcy,
Messrs. Chaney, Gitten and Ofenloch informed Dennis Love and Jack
Gocke from Marsh & McClennan regarding the Chapter 11 filing.  The
Nanovation representatives said that no claims had been made
against Nanovation.  Mr. Love pointed out the section of the
Primary Policy would allow the Debtor to put insurers on notice of
circumstances even though no claims had actually been made.  
However, Mr. Ofenloch had already written a "notice of
circumstances" letter to Mr. Gocke the day before.

According to the Ofenloch Letter, the insurers were given notice
of potential claims against the Debtor.  The letter also stated
that the Debtor believes that its bankruptcy filing will give rise
to claims being filed against the Debtor, its Board of Directors
and Officers.  The Debtor would advise the insurers of the
specifics of the claims as the Company becomes aware of them.

After receiving the Ofenloch Letter, Mr. Love composed the cover
letters dated July 25, 2001, that were sent to the three insurers
with the Ofenloch Letter enclosed.  Mr. Love requested that each
insurer "accept this as a notice of circumstances that may give
rise to a claim under the Primary Policy as well as any other
policies."

Nanovation officers, directors and attorneys agreed that no claims
had been made against the Debtor.  Moreover, neither Mr.
Bjorklund, Mr. Davidson, Mr. Bratter nor Mr. Carr were aware any
wrongful acts committed by other directors and officers on or
before July 23, 2001, when Mr. Ofenloch sent his letter.

                            Florida Law

The Trustee and other parties asserted that Florida law is
applicable to their summary judgment motions.  Under Florida law,
the existence of a coverage defense assumes that coverage exists
but that there is a defense, such as a material misrepresentation
on the application for insurance.  Florida law required the
insurers to respond in 30 days.  The Trustee adds that the
insurers failed to respond within 30 days even though National
Union responded to the Ofenloch Letter before the Primary Policy
expired.

                         Insurers Respond

The three insurers argued that the Trustee's motions do not create
coverage defense because there was no existing coverage.  The
insurers denied the coverage under a claims-made policy since it
is based on a complete lack of notice; therefore, it is not a
coverage defense.

The insurers asserted that:

   -- National Union has responded to the Ofenloch letter in a
      reasonable amount of time and did not waive its right to
      object to notice;

   -- Federal and Twin City had no duty to defend and therefore no
      duty to respond until the coverage was triggered;

   -- it is not estopped from denying the adequacy of the notice
      for the D & O policy because the Trustee failed to show
      evidence whether the Debtor was misled by an act or
      statement of the insurer;

   -- neither the three insurers acted in bad faith with respect
      to their responses to the Ofenloch letter.

                         Court's Decision

In a decision published at 2006 WL 2129500, Judge Hollis held
that:

   a) National Union responded timely to the letter and so did not
      waive its right to object to that notice;

   b) Federal responded to the letter in an appropriate time and
      reserved all of its rights to decline coverage;

   c) any delay in the response of Twin City, whose duty to defend
      has not yet been triggered, did not indicate a lack of good
      faith;

   d) Under Illinois law, National Union was not estopped from
      denying the adequacy of the notice for the D & O policy even
      though a separate division of its company had accepted
      the letter as notice of circumstances under the Debtor's
      technology liability insurance policy;

   e) National Union did not act in bad faith under Florida law;
      and

   f) National Union did not engage in vexatious and unreasonable
      delay under Illinois law.

proceedings.
       
Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal and
accounting professionals and financial advisors, at the Debtor's
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.

Based in Brea, CA, Naturade Inc. -- http://www.naturade.com/--

NEWPARK RESOURCES: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Ratings
-------------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation of
its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the oilfield service and refining and marketing
sectors last week, the rating agency confirmed its B1 Corporate
Family Rating for Newpark Resources Inc., and its B2 rating on the
company's Senior Secured Guaranteed Term Loan B.  Additionally,
Moody's assigned those debentures an LGD4 rating suggesting
lenders will experience a 59% loss in the event of default.

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

PLY-GEM: Moody's Lowers Rating on $360MM Notes to Caa1 from B3
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's downgraded Ply-Gem's existing debt to reflect the weakened
outlook for the new home construction business, high leverage, and
credit statistics that had the company weakly positioned in the B1
rating category.  The company is now considered to be strongly
positioned in the B2 rating category.  The ratings outlook is
stable.

These ratings were assigned:

   * $175 million incremental senior secured term loan, due 2011,
     assigned Ba3 (LGD2, 27%);

   * $117 million senior secured 2nd lien term loan, due 2011,    
     assigned B3 (LGD4, 65%).

These ratings actions have been taken:

   * Corporate Family Rating, downgraded to B2 from B1;

   * Probability-of-default rating, downgraded to B2 from B1;

   * $121 million incremental senior secured term loan, due 2011,
     downgraded to Ba3 from Ba2, LGD affirmed (LGD2, 27%);

   * $277 million senior secured term loan, due 2011, downgraded
     to Ba3 from Ba2, LGD affirmed (LGD2, 27%);

   * $70 million senior secured revolving credit facility, due
     2009, downgraded to Ba3 from Ba2, LGD affirmed (LGD2, 27%);

   * $360 million 9% senior subordinated notes, due 2012,
     downgraded to Caa1 from B3, LGD changed to (LGD5, 86%) from
     (LGD5, 80%).

The ratings outlook is stable.

The B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects the company's high
leverage, reliance on the new home construction market for 58% of
total revenues, post the planned acquisition of Alcoa Home
Exteriors.  The ratings benefit from the company's position as the
largest manufacturer of vinyl siding in the US and its post
acquisition revenue mix.

The ratings may deteriorate if free cash flow after capital
expenditures to total debt were to decline to under 3% on a
sustainable basis or if the company's debt to EBITDA increases
above 6 times.

The ratings could improve if the company's debt to EBITDA were to
decline below 4 times with the expectation for continued
improvement, and if free cash flow after capital expenditures to
total debt were to improve above 8% on a sustainable basis.

Ply-Gem is headquartered in Kearney, Missouri.  Ply-Gem is a
manufacturer of vinyl siding, windows, patio doors, fencing,
railing, and decking serving both the new construction and R&R end
markets.  Revenues for 2005 were $839 million.

SANMINA-SCI CORP: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation
of its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default
rating methodology, the rating agency confirmed its Ba2 Corporate
Family Rating for Sanmina-SCI Corp.  

Additionally, Moody's revised its probability-of-default ratings
and assigned loss-given-default ratings on these loans and bond
debt obligations:

                                                   Projected
                        Old POD  New POD  LGD      Loss-Given
   Debt Issue           Rating   Rating   Rating   Default
   ----------           -------  -------  ------   ----------
   $600 million 8.125%
   Senior Subordinated
   Notes due 2016          B1      Ba3     LGD4       67%

   $400 million 6.75%
   Senior Subordinated
   Notes due 2013          B1      Ba3     LGD4       67%

   $525 million 3%
   Convertible Subor.
   Notes due 2007          B1      B1      LGD6       92%

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

SATELITES MEXICANOS: Taps Boyden Affiliate to Search for CEO
------------------------------------------------------------
Satelites Mexicanos, S.A. de C.V., seeks authority from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to employ
Lebra, S.C., an affiliate of Boyden Global Executive Search, to
conduct a search for an individual to serve as the Debtor's chief
executive officer.

Sergio Miguel Angel Autrey Maza, chairman of the board of
directors, was designated by the Board as interim chief executive
officer in February 2005.  Mr. Autrey will step down from the
position upon the hiring of a permanent chief executive officer.

The Debtor and the other significant parties-in-interest in its
case believe the time is right to begin the process of identifying
appropriate candidates for the chief executive officer position.  
Accordingly, the Debtor seeks Boyden's assistance in conducting an
efficient and expedient search for a new chief executive officer.

Luis Lezama Cohen, the Boyden managing director assigned to
The Debtor, has extensive experience performing searches in the
telecommunications industry, performing 96 searches and 2,790
interviews for 26 companies, including Avantel, Qualcomm,
Televisa, Motorola, IBM de Mexico, and Skytel.

The Debtor believes that Boyden's advice and services will help it
identify and designate qualified candidates in a cost-effective,
efficient, and expedient manner.

Pursuant to an engagement letter with Boyden dated Sept. 11, 2006,
the firm will be paid a fixed fee of $184,000, plus corresponding
VAT tax, payable in three equal installments of $61,600 on:

    * September 11, 2006;
    * September 25, 2006; and
    * the date when the successful candidate is hired.

No payments have been or will be made pending approval of the
Debtor's request.

Additional expenses like travel on behalf of candidates or Boyden
associates to conduct interviews are billed separately, with the
Debtor's prior consent, although no fees are anticipated.

If an individual placed by Boyden is terminated for cause or
resigns during the first year of employment, Boyden will perform a
replacement search, charging only for administrative expenses.

SEA CONTAINERS: Common Shares & Sr. Notes to Cease Trading on NYSE
------------------------------------------------------------------
Sea Containers Ltd. has been advised by the New York Stock
Exchange that its common shares and its Senior Notes will be
suspended from trading on the NYSE and NYSE Arca prior to the
market opening on Oct. 3, 2006.  The NYSE will submit an
application to the Securities and Exchange Commission to delist
these securities.

The suspension applies to these NYSE listed securities of Sea
Containers Ltd:

   -- Class A Common Shares (SCRA);
   -- Class B Common Shares (SCRB);
   -- 10 3/4% Senior Notes Due 2006 (SCR06);
   -- 7-7/8% Senior Notes Due 2008 (SCR 08);
   -- 12-1/2% Senior Notes Due 2009 (SCR 09); and
   -- 10 1/2% Senior Notes Due 2012 (SCR 12).

The suspension also applies to these NYSE ARCA listed securities:

   -- Class A Common Shares (SCRA); and
   -- Class B Common Shares (SCRB).

Sea Containers received written notification from the NYSE on
Sept. 29, 2006, that the decision was reached because the company
has not filed its 2005 annual report on Form 10-K with the
Securities and Exchange Commission within six months following the
due date of such filing.  The NYSE also noted that Sea Containers
has not yet filed its quarterly reports on Form 10-Q during 2006.
These conditions subjected Sea Containers' securities to the
NYSE's suspension and delisting procedures.

Sea Containers has informed the NYSE that, due to its focus on its
proposed restructuring and potential reorganization and the fact
that the Company remains uncertain as to when it will be able to
file its annual report, the Company is not in a position to
contest the involuntary suspension and proposed delisting of its
common shares and its Senior Notes.  The Company expects these
securities to be delisted from the NYSE upon approval by the
Securities and Exchange Commission.

Headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda, Sea Containers Ltd.
(NYSE: SCRA and SCRB) -- http://www.seacontainers.com/--  
provides passenger transport operations, ownership and management
of hotels and resort properties and leasing of cargo containers.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 15, 2006,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its ratings on Sea
Containers Ltd., including the 'CCC-' corporate credit rating,
remain on CreditWatch with negative implications.  Ratings were
lowered to current levels May 1, 2006; they were initially placed
on CreditWatch with negative implications on Aug. 25, 2005.


SEMCAMS HOLDING: Moody's Assigns B1 Rating to $250MM Senior Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service made these rating actions on SemGroup,
L.P.:

Assigned

   * B1 rating to SemGroup, L.P.'s $250 million of 8.75% senior  
     unsecured add-on notes

Affirmed

   * B1 rated $350 million of 8.75% senior unsecured notes due
     2015;

   * Ba3 corporate family rating;

   * Ba2 rated $1.475 billion secured working capital borrowing
     base facility;

   * Ba2 rated $200 million revolving credit facility;

   * Ba2 rated $150 million secured Term Loan B due 2010; and,

   * Ba2 rated $175 million Canadian Term Loan.

The subsidiaries guarantee SemGroup debt and SemGroup guarantees
subsidiary debt.

The notes will fund the $85 million Dornick Hills Midstream Ltd.
acquisition, pre-fund roughly $100 million of remaining 2006
capital spending, and partially repay revolver debt.  Dornick owns
a 170 mile natural gas gathering system with 2,700 horsepower of
compression plus a refrigerated lean oil processing plant.  
SemGroup estimates in the range of $633 million in 2006
acquisitions and capital spending.

Moody's has not completed a midstream ratings methodology, though
its SemGroup rating rationale matches the methods and rationale
employed for the other oil and gas midstream firms Moody's rates.

SemGroup's scale, diversification, and underlying core earnings
power have a profile in the Ba rating range.  This is offset by a
large minority portion of earnings generated by volatile, high
volume, thin margin, and less durable merchant and hedged trading
activity and attendant credit intensive high working capital and
margin deposit needs.  The ratings also reflect acquisition and
funding risk.  The volatile cash flow sources, leverage, and event
risk render a high single B rating profile.

To date, SemGroup has been a prudent acquirer while expanding its
midstream petroleum businesses and building a balanced business
portfolio for rising, falling, and seasonal petroleum markets.
However, its ratings reflect an ongoing aggressive growth plan to
capitalize on mid-stream opportunities it views are still emerging
from changing North American crude oil, refined product, and
natural gas sourcing and consumption patterns.  It also considers
further international growth after acquiring the Milford Haven
(U.K.) refined products terminal and storage complex that it
leases to third parties.  As well, as a private firm it is more
difficult to assume that its shareholders will be willing or able
to consistently fund acquisitions with sufficient equity funding
to support the ratings.

Specifically, SemGroup's ratings are supported

   -- by increasingly large scale geographic and product
      diversification across midstream asset categories, multiple
      oil and natural gas producing basins, refining centers, and
      marketing regions;

   -- resulting gross margin protection so far across volatile
      markets;

   -- the advantages of regional MidContinent intensity;

   -- a sound performance outlook over the next twelve months;
      and,

   -- moderate core leverage measured to core non-merchant
      EBITDA.

The firm holds strategic MidContinent pipeline, storage, and
terminal assets; its important growing storage capacity at
Cushing, Oklahoma exposes it to rising U.S. imported crude oil
volume; and it displays sound record to date of effective hedging,
of adherence to hedge policy, and effective back office controls
in the merchant marketing and hedged trading activity. SemGroup's
access to date to private equity from sector-knowledgeable
Carlyle/Riverstone is also supportive.

The ratings are restrained by SemGroup's

   -- comparatively high, though recently reducing, proportion of
      volatile earnings sources from merchant activity;

   -- the highly working capital intensive, credit intensive, and
      market confidence sensitive nature of its merchant
      activity;

   -- very large liquidity requirements for margin deposits and
      to fund working capital during surging oil, natural gas
      liquids, refined product, and natural gas markets
     (consuming virtually all cash flow after capital spending in
      first half 2006); and,

   -- very high balance sheet leverage.

Moody's notes that very high balance sheet leverage partly
reflects unrealized mark-to-market commodity derivative loss
deductions from equity, as well as debt funding for acquisitions
whose cash flow would reduce attendant incurred debt.  Moody's
also notes that SemGroup may realize cash from declining working
capital and margin deposits, both seasonally and during sustained
falling hydrocarbon prices.

SemGroup's June 30, 2006, pro-forma balance sheet displays
$441 million in equity ($862 million before unrealized mark-to-
market derivatives losses) and $1.520 billion in debt.  Debt
included $433 million in secured hedged contango inventory bank
debt, $177 million in secured bank revolver debt, a
$145.6 million term loan,  a US$173 million-equivalent Canadian
term loan, and $595 million of 8.75% senior notes.  We add
$97 million in capitalized operating leases and $7 million in
unfunded pension liabilities to calculate adjusted debt, rendering
Adjusted Debt/Adjusted Capital 78% (64% before unrealized mark-to-
market derivative losses).

Before extraordinary items, year ended June 30, 2006, EBITDA was
$553 million or approximately $563 million pro-forma for Dornick
Hills.  Moody's estimates that approximately 61% of EBITDA was
generated by durable core activities, with the remainder from the
volatile credit intensive merchant function.  

Following a series of 2005 and 2006 acquisitions and storage
expansions, SemGroup states that it believes core EBITDA of
roughly $320 million will rise to roughly $425 million in 2007.

Moody's does not grant material long term debt capacity to
SemGroup's volatile, working capital intensive, and credit-
sensitive hedged crude oil, refined product, and natural gas
trading and marketing segments.  Moody's also notes that a
significant portion of SemGroup's pipeline and storage throughput
volumes are generated by its own pro-active hydrocarbon middleman
sourcing and marketing activity.

SemGroup's outlook and ratings would be vulnerable to material
acquisitions if not accompanied by ample equity funding.  The
ratings would also not have supported materially higher levels of
contango borrowings beyond 2006 levels, though forward market
conditions that drove activity of that scale have moderated.

The ratings are also sensitive to SemGroup's ability to
consistently successfully market, trade, and effectively hedge its
activity through volatile spot and forward markets as well as
execute a profitable marketing business in backwardated,
transition, and contango markets.

Moody's notes that the nature of SemGroup's business and assets,
and the interests of its private equity owners, appear to make it
likely that it may go public in the form of a master limited
partnership.  Heretofore, the ratings have benefited by the fact
that SemGroup is not an MLP with very high cash distributions to
unit holders.

SemGroup is headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma.


SEMGROUP L.P.: Fitch Rates Proposed $250 Million Sr. Notes at B+
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigned the rating of 'B+/RR3' to SemGroup, L.P.'s
proposed offering of $250 million of senior unsecured notes due
2015.  The notes are an add-on to the November 2005 offering of
$350 million of 8.75% notes.  Proceeds from the offering will be
used to pre-fund acquisitions and capital expenditures planned for
the fourth quarter of 2006.  The company is also considering
upsizing the offering to $300 million.

In addition, Fitch affirmed these ratings with a Stable Outlook:

  SemGroup, L.P.:

    -- Issuer Default Rating 'B'
    -- Senior unsecured notes due 2015 'B+/RR3'

  SemCrude, L.P.:

    -- IDR 'B'
    -- Secured working capital facility due August 2010 'BB/RR1'
    -- Senior secured term loan B due March 2011 'BB-/RR1'
    -- Secured revolving credit facility due August 2010 'BB-/RR1'


  SemCams Midstream Co.:

    -- IDR 'B'
    -- Senior secured term loan due March 2011 'BB-/RR1'

Despite the additional debt, the affirmation reflects Fitch's
expectations that consolidated credit ratios will remain in line
with SemGroup's current ratings as earnings should continue to
benefit from the current commodity price environment.

SemGroup's ratings are also supported by the increase in size and
scope of the company's physical asset base in recent years which
has significantly diversified the partnership's business risk and
provided a more predictable source of third-party cash flow.  The
company's traditional crude oil and refined product segments own
and operate a portfolio of strategically positioned pipeline and
terminal assets, including significant storage capacity at the
Cushing, Oklahoma delivery hub.

Overall, the company's storage capacity has increased to 34
million barrels at June 30, 2006, from 13.9 million barrels at the
end of 2004.  These assets should also continue to generate a
considerable level of third-party cash flow in the event SemGroup
were to significantly scale back or exit the marketing business.

The company's aggressive growth strategy, however, also comes with
some risks, notably those inherent to acquisitions -- the ability
to integrate new assets, the accuracy and thoroughness of due
diligence, the ability to analyze the markets and drivers for new
business segments, etc.

While each of SemGroup's assets is related to energy, the various
assets are often only remotely related requiring an expertise
across sectors and limiting economies of scale for some of its
operations.  Given the nature of SemGroup as a private company, of
additional concern is the continued use of debt as the primary
source of funding for the company's growth strategy as equity
infusions and retained earnings have only funded a limited level
of the company's growth.

The strong earnings have, however, thus far mitigated this risk as
leverage has remained relatively constant at under 2.5x debt to
EBITDA over the recent years.

SemGroup also continues to derive a significant percentage of
its gross margin through its commodity marketing and logistics
business, which focuses on the purchase of crude oil, refined
products, natural gas liquids, and natural gas and entering into
corresponding sales transactions with third-party customers.

As part of this process, SemGroup utilizes its physical asset
base, including company owned pipelines, storage tanks, and
terminals, to capture value from changes in time, location, and
quality.  Profits have grown significantly over the past few
years, driven primarily by increased capacity under the company's
working capital credit facility and favorable commodity market
conditions, especially contango conditions.

While a reversal to backwardation in crude markets appears
unlikely given current geo-political conditions, a flattening of
the futures curve could significantly reduce profits for the
company.

Fitch also continues to believe that SemGroup management has
instituted an appropriate level of emphasis on risk management,
controls, and internal procedures given the overall level of
commodity risk assumed by SemGroup in its day-to-day business
activities.

SemGroup marks to market its commodity positions on a daily basis
and has imposed conservative daily and cumulative stop-loss
limits.  SemGroup's marketing activities are further governed by
the credit agreement, which restricts the partnership to
conducting covered or 'back-to-back' trades only and limits open
commodity positions to specific levels as approved by the bank
group.

The assignment of the 'B+' rating for the proposed offering
reflects the subordination of the unsecured notes to SemGroup's
outstanding secured term loans and revolving credit facilities.

Recovery prospects for the existing secured term loans and
revolver remain high due to the stronger earnings power of the
company's increased asset base.  Given the mechanics of the
borrowing base, asset coverage for the working capital line will
continue to remain outstanding with the 1st lien on working
capital assets.  

With its second lien on fixed assets, the working capital line
also benefits from any residual fixed asset value after the term
loan obligations are satisfied.  Hence the higher rating is
assigned to the working capital line than the term loans and
revolver.

Although overall recovery prospects remain strong, the
partnership's senior unsecured notes are the most vulnerable due
to potentially reduced recovery prospects from the added unsecured
notes.

January 15, April 15, July 15, and October 15 until a final decree
closing the Chapter 11 cases has been entered, Judge Burton R.
Lifland says.

Moreover, within 45 days following the distribution of any deposit
required by the Plan, or if no deposit was required, upon the
payment of the final distribution required by the Plan, the
Debtors will file a closing report in accordance with Rule 3022-1
of the Local Rules for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York, and an application for a final decree.

Judge Lifland directs the Debtors to submit the Closing Report and
application for final decree, including a final decree closing the
case, within one year from the date of the Confirmation Order.

If the Debtors fail to comply with these terms, the Clerk will
advise the Court and an order to show cause may be issued, Judge
Lifland adds.

SILICON GRAPHICS: Wants to Assume 107 Contracts & Fix Cure Costs
----------------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to their confirmed Plan of Reorganization, Silicon
Graphics, Inc., and its debtor-affiliates will assume on the
effective date of the Plan, all executory contracts and unexpired
leases listed on the schedules specified in the Plan supplements.

The Debtors seek the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York's authority to assume the 107 Contracts and
fix the amounts required to cure them.

Prepetition executory contracts and unexpired leases not listed on
the schedules, previously assumed by the Debtors, or subject to a
request for assumption, will be rejected on the Plan Effective
Date.

Gary T. Holtzer, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal, & Manges LLP, in New
York, relates that the Debtors inadvertently did not list 107
contracts on the Assumption Schedules.

Mr. Holtzer says the 107 Contracts are of benefit to the Debtors
and necessary to the operation of their businesses.

Moreover, Mr. Holtzer assures the Court that there are no defaults
under the Contracts that cannot be cured by the payment of the
proposed cure amounts.  Hence, the Debtors have satisfied
Section 365(b) of the Bankruptcy Code.

SOLECTRON CORP: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Ratings
----------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation
of its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default
rating methodology, the rating agency confirmed its B1 Corporate
Family Rating for Solectron Corp.  

Additionally, Moody's revised its probability-of-default ratings
and assigned loss-given-default ratings on these loans and bond
debt obligations:

                                                   Projected
                        Old POD  New POD  LGD      Loss-Given
   Debt Issue           Rating   Rating   Rating   Default
   ----------           -------  -------  ------   ----------
   $450 million 0.5%
   Convertible Senior
   Notes due 2034          B1       B3     LGD5        86%

   $150 million 8.0%
   Senior Subordinated
   Notes due 2016          B3       B3     LGD6        95%

   $64 million 7.97%
   Subordinated
   Debentures due
   November 2006           B3       B3     LGD6        95%

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

SPECIALTYCHEM PRODUCTS: Can Access Cash Collateral Until Oct. 29
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Pamela Pepper of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Wisconsin allowed, on a final basis,
SpecialtyChem Products Corporation and ChemDesign Corporation to
use cash collateral securing payment of their indebtedness to
Wachovia Bank, National Association, and Cambridge Chemicals,
Inc., until Oct. 29, 2006.

The Debtors said that an immediate need exists for the use of the
Cash Collateral to enable them to minimize disruption to and avoid
the termination of their business operations.

The Debtors, SpecialtyChem and ChemDesign, told the Court that
they owe Wachovia and other lenders as parties to a Loan and
Security Agreement for Obligations, dated Nov. 30, 2001,
approximately $6,211,575, consisting of:

   a) in the case of SpecialtyChem:

      * Revolving Loans in the aggregate principal amount of
        $2,407,145, and

      * Term Loans in the aggregate principal amount of $674,668;

   b) in the case of ChemDesign:

      * Revolving Loans in the aggregate principal amount of
        $871,087, and

      * Term Loans in the aggregate amount of $2,258,674.

The Debtors further acknowledged that Cambridge claims a blanket
lien on all of their assets to secure a note in the approximate
principal amount of $2,000,000.  Cambridge's liens and claims are
junior and subordinate to the claims, liens, and security
interests granted in favor of Wachovia.

As adequate protection, the Debtors grant Wachovia and Cambridge a
replacement lien to the same validity, extent, and priority as
their prepetition liens.  The Debtors will make weekly adequate
protection payments to Wachovia during the Cash Collateral Use
Period in the amount of $15,000 per week, with payment due on
Monday of each week.

SPECIALTYCHEM PRODUCTS: Wants to Sell Assets as a Going Concern
---------------------------------------------------------------
SpecialtyChem Products Corporation and ChemDesign Corporation seek
authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District
of Wisconsin to sell substantially all assets of their business
operations in Marinette, Wisconsin, as a going concern, free and
clear of all liens, claims, and encumbrances, at an auction on
Oct. 18, 2006.

Tonya Trumm, Esq., at Godfrey & Kahn, S.C., relates that since the
Debtors are unable to obtain the use of cash collateral beyond the
Oct. 29 specified period, the Debtors do not have the financial
resources or access to capital necessary to implement a prolonged
operational restructuring.  Without access to capital, the Debtors
will experience difficulty in covering its fixed costs.  The
Debtors have, therefore, determined to maximize the value of its
estate through the sale of assets.

Ms. Trumm tells the Court that if, prior to the Auction, the
Debtor determines to use an entity to serve as the initial bidder
on the assets, the Debtors request that it be allowed to offer the
"Stalking Horse Bidder," a break-up fee in an amount not exceeding
$200,000.  

Ms. Trumm also discloses that the Debtors request the Court to
schedule the Sale Hearing for Oct. 19, 2006, and request that the
Court set Oct. 13, 2006, at 4:00 p.m. as the deadline for filing
any objection to the proposed sale of assets.

STRUCTURED ASSET: S&P Downgrades Class B-5 Loan's Rating to CCC
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating on class
B-5 from Structured Asset Securities Corp. Assistance Loan Trust
2003-AL2 to 'CCC' from 'B'.

At the same time, the ratings on the remaining classes were
affirmed.

The downgrade reflects continued erosion of credit support due to
adverse collateral pool performance, a high level of serious
delinquencies (90-plus days, foreclosure, and REO), and high
cumulative losses.  The original credit support for class B-5 was
4.20%, while the current credit support is 1.80%.

The affirmations reflect actual and projected credit support
percentages that adequately support the current ratings.

As of the August 2006 remittance date, total delinquencies were
5.02% of the current pool balance and cumulative realized losses
were 2.56% of the original pool balance.  The remaining unpaid
pool balance, as a percentage of the original balance, is
approximately 57.72%.

This transaction benefits from credit enhancement provided by
subordination.

SUPERVALU INC: Moody's Confirms Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation of
its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the U.S. and Canadian Retail sector, the rating
agency confirmed its Ba3 Corporate Family Rating for SUPERVALU
Inc.  

Additionally, Moody's revised its probability-of-default ratings
and assigned loss-given-default ratings on these loans and bond
debt obligations:

                                                   Projected
                        Old POD  New POD  LGD      Loss-Given
   Debt Issue           Rating   Rating   Rating   Default
   ----------           -------  -------  ------   ----------
   Sr Unsec Notes and
   Debentures              B2      B1      LGD4        60%

   Medium Term Notes       B2      B1      LGD4        60%

   Ind Rev Bonds           B2      B1      LGD4        60%

   Sr Unsec Shelf          B2      B1      LGD4        60%

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's
alpha-numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the
likelihood that any entity within a corporate family will default
on any of its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

SURETY CAPITAL: Earns $1.2 Million in First Quarter of 2006
-----------------------------------------------------------
Surety Capital Corp. has filed its financial statements for the
first quarter ended March 31, 2006, with the Securities and
Exchange Commission.

For the three months ended March 31, 2006, the Company reported
$1,219,000 of net income compared with a $700,000 net loss for the
three months ended March 31, 2005.

There was a credit to loan loss of $98,000 for the three months
ended March 31, 2006, as contrasted with a provision for loan
losses of $148,000 for the corresponding period in 2005.  

The three-month period ended March 31, 2006, included a gain on
the sale of other real estate owned of $36,000 versus a $38,000
loss for the 2005 period.  Non-interest expense declined $120,000
from 2005 to 2006 as a result of an $83,000 decrease in
professional fees and a $40,000 decrease in insurance expense.

At March 31, 2006, the Company's balance sheet showed $32,351,000
in total assets, $30,518,000 in total liabilities, and $1,833,000
in total shareholders' equity.

                        Going Concern Doubt

In the Company's latest Form 10KSB filed with the SEC for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2002, Weaver and Tidwell, L.L.P., in Fort Worth,
Texas, raised substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

The auditor cited that the Company is operating under both a
Determination Letter with the Texas Department of Banking and a
Written Agreement with the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve Bank of Dallas, and, prior to Sept. 1, 2005, operated
under a Consent Order with the Office of the Comptroller of the
Currency.

The appropriateness of using the going concern basis is dependent
upon the Company's ability to improve profitability through
increasing marketing efforts, introducing new deposit products,
emphasizing loan growth and reducing non-interest expense.  

In addition, the Company must meet the requirements of the
Determination Letter and the Written Agreement.

TIVO INC: EchoStar Can Continue Selling Digital Video Recorders
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable William C. Bryson of the U.S. Court of Appeals for
the Federal Circuit allows EchoStar Communications Corp. and its
subsidiaries to continue selling digital video recorders while
appealing rival TiVo Inc.'s victory in a patent case.

Tivo alleges that EchoStar willfully infringed U.S. Patent No.
6,233,389, entitled "Multimedia Time Warping System," by making
and selling digital video recording devices, digital video
recording device software, and personal television services in the
United States.  On April 13, 2006, the jury in the U.S. District
Court for the Eastern District of Texas suit rendered a verdict in
favor of the Company in the amount of approximately $74 million.

On Aug. 17, 2006, the District Court granted TiVo's motion for
permanent injunction to prevent EchoStar from making, using, and
selling DVRs in the U.S.  The District Court also ordered EchoStar
to pay TiVo approximately $74 million in damages as awarded by the
jury, prejudgment interest at the prime rate through July 31,
2006, of approximately $5.6 million, and supplemental damages for
infringement through July 31, 2006, in the amount of approximately
$10.3 million.  The District Court denied TiVo's request for
enhanced damages and attorney's fees and costs.  The District
Court also denied EchoStar's request to stay the injunction
pending appeal.

The Court of Appeals temporarily stayed the District Court's
injunction on Aug. 18, 2006.  The Court of Appeals said that the
temporary stay was not based on a consideration of the merits of
EchoStar's request.

VIASYSTEMS INC: Moody's Assigns Loss-Given-Default Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
In connection with Moody's Investors Service's implementation
of its new Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default
rating methodology, the rating agency confirmed its B3 Corporate
Family Rating for Viasystems Inc. and upgraded its Caa2 rating on
the company's $200 million Senior Subordinated Notes to Caa1.  
Moody's assigned those debentures an LGD5 rating suggesting
noteholders will experience a 78% loss in case of default.

Moody's explains that current long-term credit ratings are
opinions about expected credit loss, which incorporate both the
likelihood of default and the expected loss in the event of
default.  The LGD rating methodology will disaggregate these two
key assessments in long-term ratings.  The LGD rating methodology
will also enhance the consistency in Moody's notching practices
across industries and will improve the transparency and accuracy
of Moody's ratings as Moody's research has shown that credit
losses on bank loans have tended to be lower than those for
similarly rated bonds.

Probability-of-default ratings are assigned only to issuers, not
specific debt instruments, and use the standard Moody's alpha-
numeric scale.  They express Moody's opinion of the likelihood
that any entity within a corporate family will default on any of
its debt obligations.

Loss-given-default assessments are assigned to individual rated
debt issues -- loans, bonds, and preferred stock.  Moody's opinion
of expected loss are expressed as a percent of principal and
accrued interest at the resolution of the default, with
assessments ranging from LGD1 (loss anticipated to be 0% to 9%) to
LGD6 (loss anticipated to be 90% to 100%).

WIDEOPENWEST FINANCE: S&P Rates $150 Mil. 2nd-Lien Loan at CCC+
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' long-term
corporate credit rating to Englewood, Colorado-based cable
overbuilder WideOpenWest Finance LLC.  The outlook is stable.

In addition, Standard & Poor's assigned ratings to WOW's $840
million aggregate facilities:

   * a 'B' bank loan rating was assigned to the company's $60
     million senior secured first-lien revolver and $630 million
     senior secured first-lien term loan; and

   * a 'CCC+' bank loan rating was assigned to the company's $150
     million second-lien term loan.

Currently, there is $510 million of the first-lien term loan drawn
and another $120 million will be used to fund the acquisition of
cable overbuilder Sigecom LLC.

The recovery rating for the first-lien revolver and term loan is
'3', indicating meaningful (50%-80%) recovery of principal in the
event of a payment default or bankruptcy.  The second-lien term
loan is rated two notches below the corporate credit rating, based
on the significant amount of priority obligations from the first-
lien term loan and revolver.

The recovery rating for the second-lien term loan is '5',
indicating negligible (0%-25%) recovery of principal in the event
of payment default or bankruptcy.

Pro forma total debt is approximately $786 million on an operating
lease-adjusted basis.

Total proceeds of $120 million from a tack-on first-lien term loan
will be used to fund the $114 million acquisition of Sigecom,
including the repayment of about $35.9 million of Sigecom's debt,
as well as related fees and expenses.

"The ratings on WOW reflect a high degree of risk due to the
company's vulnerable market position and significant competition
from financially stronger companies, its small scale and cost
disadvantages, particularly in negotiating programming contracts,
execution risk associated with the acquisition of Sigecom, and an
aggressively leveraged financial profile," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Allyn Arden.

Tempering factors include:

   * the company's demonstrated ability to increase market
     penetration despite significant competition from incumbent
     cable operators;

   * its reputation for excellent customer service;

   * a state-of-the-art cable plant with a two-way capability;

   * better-than-average margins as a cable overbuilder; and

   * attractive demographics.

WOW provides video, voice, and high-speed data services in
Detroit, Chicago, Columbus, and Cleveland, Ohio, and has about
388,000 subscribers on a pro forma basis.


WINN-DIXIE: Retirees Committee Supports Reorganization Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Ad Hoc Committee of Winn-Dixie Retirees, who participated in
the negotiation of the settlement of the substantive consolidation
issues, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of
Florida to confirm Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., and its debtor-
affiliates' proposed Joint Plan of Reorganization.

According to the Retirees Committee, the Plan represents a good
faith effort on the Debtors' part to deal with their creditors in
the most equitable means possible while maintaining the viability
of the various companies.

In the Retirees Committee's opinion, the Plan fully complies with
the requirements of Section 1129 of the Bankruptcy Code and
represents the best opportunity for the Debtors' successful
reorganization.

WINN-DIXIE: Ct. Disallows 499 Duplicative Claims Totaling $2.4BB
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Jerry A. funk of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Middle District of Florida sustains Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., and
its debtor-affiliates' objection to 499 claims, aggregating
$2,485,261,208.  

Judge Funk disallows the claims in their entirety, contingent upon
the (i) confirmation and effectiveness of the Debtors' Joint Plan
of Reorganization and (ii) substantive consolidation of the
Debtors' estates as provided in the Plan.

Liberty Mutual Insurance Company withdraws Claim Nos. 10276
through 10281.

Florida Crystals Food Corporation's claim is allowed as an
unsecured non-priority claim for $18,096.

Judge Funk notes that if the Plan is not confirmed or does not
become effective, the Court Order will not prejudice the position
of either the claimants or the Debtors with respect to the issue
of which of the several Debtors named as obligor on the claims is
the actual obligor for the alleged liability.

Judge Funk also rules that the Court order is without prejudice
to the Debtors' right to further object to the surviving claims
or pursue any potential avoidance action against any of the
claimants.

                    Florida Crystals' Response

Florida Crystals Food Corporation stated that it filed an
unsecured proof of claim for $18,096 against Winn-Dixie Stores,
Inc.; Winn-Dixie Procurement, Inc.; and Winn-Dixie Logistics,
Inc.

Florida Crystals did not object to the Debtors' request to
expunge its duplicate claims under the conditions set forth in
their Omnibus Objection, but it objected to the Debtors' attempt
to reserve their rights to further object to the surviving claim.

Gene B. Tarr, Esq., at Blanco Tackabery Combs & Matamoros PA, in
Winston-Salem, North Carolina, asserted that Florida Crystals
should not be required to face the prospect of incurring
unnecessary expenses if the Debtors unilaterally decide to object
to Florida's claim at a later date.

Florida Crystals asked the Court to deny the Debtors' purported
reservation of rights to object to Claim No. 12863 on any other
basis.

                            Background

The Debtors had identified 505 claims that appear to be
duplicative of other claims filed against them.

According to James H. Post, Esq., at Smith Hulsey & Busey, in
Jacksonville, Florida, the Debtors have reviewed each of the
Duplicate Different Debtor Claims and have determined that the
claims are in effect multiple claims against the estates for the
same liability.

WINN-DIXIE: Duval County Wants Claims Objection Overruled
---------------------------------------------------------
The Duval County Tax Collector and the Duval County Property
Appraiser ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of
Florida to overrule Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., and its debtor-
affiliates' objection to Claim No. 12566 and deny the Debtors'
request for tax liability determination.

The Duval County Tax Collector disagrees with the Debtors'
proposed reduction of the claim amount from $6,448,549 to
$5,206,101.

Richard R. Thames, Esq., at Stutsman Thames & Markey P.A., in
Jacksonville, Florida, says that the Debtors' tangible personal
property tax returns constitute an admission against their own
interest.  Thus, the Debtors are estopped from challenging the
assessments based on their own valuations.

Mr. Thames points out that the Debtors did not challenge the tax
assessments within the time limit prescribed by state law,
therefore they are deemed to have waived their right to challenge
the tax assessments.

Moreover, the Tax Injunction Act and Section 362(b)(18) of the
Bankruptcy Code preclude the Court from enjoining or interfering
with the assessment of state ad valorem property taxes,
Mr. Thames contends.

Mr. Thames also states that given the market risks associated
with the Debtors' current financial condition, the 18% interest
rate cannot be shown to be so disproportionate to current
interest rates to constitute a penalty.

YUKOS OIL: Court Orders $1.6-Bln Payment of 2004 Tax Fines
----------------------------------------------------------
The Moscow Arbitration Court has ordered OAO Yukos Oil Co. to pay
RUR42 billion ($1.6 billion) in tax fines for 2004, upholding a
claim filed by the Federal Tax Service in March, RIA Novosti
reports.

The ruling also upheld a decision of the tax authorities to impose
an additional RUR108 billion ($4 billion) in taxes on Yukos for
2004.

On March 17, the Federal Tax Service claimed that Yukos owed
RUR108 billion ($ 4billion) in back taxes for 2004.  On June 14, a
court ruling found the 2004 claim legitimate and declared that the
claim should be included in the list of creditors' claims against
Yukos.

According to the Russian news and information service, the debt
and interest penalty have been charged from Yukos in an extra-
judicial manner, while over RUR42 billion ($1.57 billion) in fines
will be charged via the arbitration court.  

As reported in TCR-Europe on Aug. 15, the Arbitration Appeal Court
in Moscow reduced the tax regulator's claims against Yukos from
RUR353.8 billion ($13.2 billion) to RUR$311.8 billion
($11.6 billion).

Up to $16.2 billion in claims have been asserted against the
company by 20 creditors, among others:

         Yuganskneftegas        $4.07 billion
         Federal Tax Service    $11.6 billion
         OAO Rosneft Oil Co.    $482 million

                         About Yukos

Headquartered in Moscow, Yukos Oil -- http://yukos.com/-- is an  
open joint stock company existing under the laws of the Russian
Federation.  Yukos is involved in energy industry substantially
through its ownership of its various subsidiaries, which own or
are otherwise entitled to enjoy certain rights to oil and gas
production, refining and marketing assets.

The Company filed for Chapter 11 protection Dec. 14, 2004
(Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case No. 04-47742), but the case was dismissed
on Feb. 24, 2005, by the Hon. Letitia Z. Clark.  A few days later,
the Government sold its main production unit Yugansk, to a little-
known firm Baikalfinansgroup for $9.35 billion, as payment for
$27.5 billion in tax arrears for 2000- 2003.  Yugansk eventually
was bought by state-owned Rosneft, which is now claiming more than
$12 billion from Yukos.

On March 10, a 14-bank consortium led by Societe Generale filed a
bankruptcy suit in the Moscow Arbitration Court in an attempt to
recover the remainder of a $1 billion debt under outstanding loan
agreements.  The banks, however, sold the claim to Rosneft,
prompting the Court to replace them with the state-owned oil
company as plaintiff.

On April 13, court-appointed external manager Eduard Rebgun filed
a chapter 15 petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 06-0775),
in an attempt to halt the sale of Yukos' 53.7% ownership interest
in Lithuanian AB Mazeikiu Nafta.

On May 26, Yukos signed a $1.49 billion Share Sale and Purchase
Agreement with PKN Orlen S.A., Poland's largest oil refiner, for
its Mazeikiu ownership stake.  The move was made a day after the
Manhattan Court lifted an order barring Yukos from selling its
controlling stake in the Lithuanian oil refinery.

On Aug. 1, the Hon. Pavel Markov of the Moscow Arbitration Court
upheld creditors' vote to liquidate OAO Yukos Oil Co. and declared
what was once Russia's biggest oil firm bankrupt.  The expected
court ruling paves the way for the company's liquidation and
auction.


YUKOS OIL: Rosneft Taps Banks for $20-Bln Loan to Buy Assets
------------------------------------------------------------
OAO Rosneft Oil Co. plans to borrow at least $15 billion to
purchase the assets of bankrupt OAO Yukos Oil Co., which were to
be sold at auction before August 2007, Kommersant Daily reports.

Rosneft has reportedly approached its Western creditor banks,
which include Deutsche Bank, to organize between $15 million and
$20 billion in loans.

Harry Wilson and Nick Clark of Financial News Online reports that
five international banks are preparing to fund the loan to
Rosneft.  According to Russian market sources, the banks, which
lent $7.5 billion to Rosneft in 2005, include:

         -- ABN Amro
         -- Barclays Capital
         -- Dresdner Kleinwort
         -- JP Morgan
         -- Morgan Stanley

Financial News cited an unidentified source as saying that Rosneft
was likely to be looking for about eight banks to back the loan.  

A spokesman for Deutsche Bank confirmed to Dow Jones Newswires
that the bank "is involved with Rosneft" but declined to confirm
the size of the facility and whether it had receive a firm mandate
for a loan, MarketWatch relates.

Rosneft First Vice President Nikolai Borisenko confirmed its
interest in Yukos assets saying that the company will have to
resort to loans for the acquisition.  According to Kommersant,
MDM-bank analyst Andrey Gromadin estimated the assets to be worth
about $20-$23 billion; Alfa-bank analyst Konstantin Batunin
estimates them at around $15 billion.

Rosneft Vice President Peter O'Brian said the company might buy
some assets from Yukos to optimize the balance between oil
refining and production.  He said that the company had no plans to
purchase assets abroad, but indicated plans to swap some assets
for oil refineries in China.  The company, however, was ready to
consider purchasing oil assets in the Bashkortostan Republic if
the moves proved to be economically expedient.

Some 20 creditors asserted up to $16.2 billion in claims against
Yukos, including, among others:

         Yuganskneftegas
           (now owned by Rosneft)       $4.07 billion
         Federal Tax Service            $11.6 billion
         OAO Rosneft Oil Co.            $482 million

                       Stock Flotation

On July 14, Rosneft closed the books on Russia's biggest flotation
and the world's fifth largest, placing 1.4 billion ordinary shares
in Moscow and London worth $10.4 billion.

Mr. O'Brian said the company has no plans to float additional
shares.

Rosneft expects to use proceeds from the IPO to pay off a
$7.5 billion syndicated bank loan that helped finance the state
buyback of a 10.7% stake in Gazprom.

Rosneft president Sergei Bogdanchikov, who acquired 0.0013% of
shares worth about $1 million, previously disclosed that three
strategic investors had subscribed for $3 billion of the company's
shares.  He also cited subscriptions from, among others:

         Investors                        Subscriptions
         ---------                        -------------
         BP Plc                           $1 billion
         Petronas                         $1.5 billion
         China National Petroleum Corp.   $500 million
         Private Russian investors        $755 million

Rosneft top executives acquired a 0.0179% stake in the company
with Hans-Jorg Rudloff, a member of the board of directors,
acquiring the largest stake at 0.0071%.

Headquartered in Moscow, Russia, OAO Rosneft --
http://www.rosneft.ru/eng-- produces and markets petroleum  
products.  The Company explores for, extracts, refines and markets
oil and natural gas.  Rosneft produces oil in Western Siberia,
Sakhalin, the North Caucasus and the Arctic regions of Russia.

                          About Yukos

Headquartered in Moscow, Yukos Oil -- http://yukos.com/-- is an  
open joint stock company existing under the laws of the Russian
Federation.  Yukos is involved in energy industry substantially
through its ownership of its various subsidiaries, which own or
are otherwise entitled to enjoy certain rights to oil and gas
production, refining and marketing assets.

The Company filed for Chapter 11 protection Dec. 14, 2004
(Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case No. 04-47742), but the case was dismissed
on Feb. 24, 2005, by the Hon. Letitia Z. Clark.  A few days later,
the Government sold its main production unit Yugansk, to a little-
known firm Baikalfinansgroup for $9.35 billion, as payment for
$27.5 billion in tax arrears for 2000- 2003.  Yugansk eventually
was bought by state-owned Rosneft, which is now claiming more than
$12 billion from Yukos.

On March 10, a 14-bank consortium led by Societe Generale filed a
bankruptcy suit in the Moscow Arbitration Court in an attempt to
recover the remainder of a $1 billion debt under outstanding loan
agreements.  The banks, however, sold the claim to Rosneft,
prompting the Court to replace them with the state-owned oil
company as plaintiff.

On April 13, court-appointed external manager Eduard Rebgun filed
a chapter 15 petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 06-0775),
in an attempt to halt the sale of Yukos' 53.7% ownership interest
in Lithuanian AB Mazeikiu Nafta.

On May 26, Yukos signed a $1.49 billion Share Sale and Purchase
Agreement with PKN Orlen S.A., Poland's largest oil refiner, for
its Mazeikiu ownership stake.  The move was made a day after the
Manhattan Court lifted an order barring Yukos from selling its
controlling stake in the Lithuanian oil refinery.

On Aug. 1, the Hon. Pavel Markov of the Moscow Arbitration Court
upheld creditors' vote to liquidate OAO Yukos Oil Co. and declared
what was once Russia's biggest oil firm bankrupt.  The expected
court ruling paves the way for the company's liquidation and
auction.

                             *********

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/

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed chapter 11
cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and liabilities
delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list includes links
to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar petitions in
Acrobat PDF format.

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.

bankruptcy documents filed in cases pending outside the District
of Delaware, contact Ken Troubh at Nationwide Research &
