AIRBORNE HEALTH: Covenant Violation Cues S&P to Junk Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on Bonita
Springs, Florida-based Airborne Health Inc., including its
corporate credit rating to 'CCC+' from 'B'.  At the same time,
Standard & Poor's placed Airborne's ratings on CreditWatch with
developing implications, meaning that the ratings could be lowered
further or raised following the completion of S&P's review.
     
"The downgrade and CreditWatch placement follows Airborne's
announcement that it is in violation of its total leverage and
interest coverage covenants under its bank credit agreement as of
its fiscal 2008 first quarter," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Bea Chiem.
     
"Even though Airborne currently has about $15 million in cash on
its balance sheet, we are concerned about Airborne's liquidity and
its ability to obtain a waiver and bank amendment in a timely and
cost-effective manner given current market conditions," said Ms.
Chiem.
     
Standard & Poor's will monitor Airborne's liquidity, as well as
its efforts to obtain a waiver and amend its financial covenants,
and discuss its financial plans with management before resolving
the CreditWatch.


ALERIS INT'L: S&P Holds B+ Rating and Revises Outlook to Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on Aleris
International Inc. to negative from stable.  At the same time S&P
affirmed its 'B+' corporate credit rating and the other ratings on
the company.  Concurrently, S&P assigned a 'B-' rating to the
company's recent $105 million 9% senior notes due 2014, which are
an add-on to the company's existing $600 million 9% senior notes
due 2014.
     
Pro forma total debt outstanding at June 30, 2007, approximates
$2.8 billion.
     
"The outlook revision reflects recent operating weakness in the
company's North American global rolled and extruded products
segment and the expectation that this trend will continue in the
near term," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Marie Shmaruk.
     
During the three months ended June 30, 2007, volumes in this
segment declined 20% year-over-year, primarily because of weaker
demand for building and construction, distribution, and
transportation products.  This, combined with increased debt
balances due to the company's aggressive growth strategy, has
resulted in credit measures that are weak for the rating.
     
Aleris, based in Beachwood, Ohio, manufactures aluminum sheet for
distributors and the transportation, construction, and consumer
durables end-user markets.  The company also makes value-added
zinc products that include zinc oxide, zinc dust, and zinc metal.
     
"We could lower the ratings in the near term if the company's debt
levels remain high and performance weakens materially because of
intensified competition or market conditions deteriorate," Ms.
Shmaruk said.  "An outlook revision back to stable would depend on
management improving and maintaining a financial profile more
consistent with the rating through earnings growth and more
moderate debt levels."


ALLEGHENY ENERGY: Unit Ups Revolving Facility to $400 Million
-------------------------------------------------------------
Allegheny Energy Inc.'s subsidiary, Allegheny Energy Supply
Company LLC, on Sept. 11, 2007, amended the May 2, 2006, Credit

facility from $200 million to $400 million.

Allegheny Energy and Allegheny Supply also entered into an
amendment to the May 22, 2006, Credit Agreement, with the lenders
party, and Citicorp North America Inc, as Administrative Agent.  

The AYE Amendment amends the AYE Credit Agreement to permit the
payment of cash dividends by AYE subject to certain conditions and
limits.

Some of the AESC Bank Parties and the AYE Bank Parties have or may

including cash management, investment banking, and the issuance of
letters of credit.

doubt about Amerex Group Inc.'s ability to continue as a going
concern after auditing the company's consolidated financial
statements as of the years ended Dec. 31, 2006, and 2005.  The
auditing firm pointed to the company's net loss working capital
deficiency and stockholders' deficit.


AMERICAN HOME: Committee Taps Hahn & Hessen as Co-Counsel
---------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors appointed in
American Home Mortgage Investment Corp. and its debtor-affiliates'
chapter 11 cases seeks authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware to retain Hahn & Hessen LLP, under a
general retainer, as its co-counsel, nunc pro tunc to August 14,
2007.

James J. McGinley, co-chairman of the Creditors Committee, relates
that Hahn & Hessen is thoroughly familiar with and experienced in
Chapter 11 practice and has represented creditors' interests in
insolvency proceedings for more than 75 years.  Hahn & Hessen H&H
is knowledgeable on the legal issues peculiar to the Debtors.  It
is also capable of investigating the Debtors' prepetition acts and
conduct.

As a co-counsel, Hahn & Hessen will:

   -- render legal advice with respect to the Creditors
      Committee's duties and powers in the bankruptcy cases;

   -- assist the Creditors Committee's investigation of the acts,
      conduct, assets, liabilities and financial condition of the
      Debtors, the operation of the Debtors' businesses, the
      desirability of continuance of the businesses and any other
      matters relevant to the Cases or to the business affairs of
      the Debtors;

   -- advise the Creditors Committee with respect to any proposed
      sale of the Debtors' assets or business operations;

   -- advise the Creditors Committee with respect to any proposed
      plan of reorganization or liquidation, and the prosecution
      of claims against third parties, and other matters relevant
      to the formulation of a Plan or liquidation;

   -- assist the Creditors Committee in requesting the
      appointment of a trustee or examiner pursuant to Section
      1104 of the Bankruptcy Code, if necessary and appropriate;
      and

      and which are in the best interests of, the unsecured

Mr. McGinley relates that Hahn & Hessen will be compensated at

Code.  Hahn & Hessen's hourly rates are:

            Partners                   $500 - $650

            Associates                 $200 - $400
            Paralegals                 $180 - $200

Hahn & Hessen has informed the Creditors Committee that it may
have represented, from time to time, certain creditors of the
Debtors or affiliates on completely unrelated matters, Mr.
McGinley informs the Court.  He adds that the Creditors Committee
has been assured that while Hahn & Hessen is employed by the
Creditors Committee, it will not represent any other entity in
connection with the Debtors Chapter 11 cases.

Mark T. Power, Esq., a member of Hahn & Hessen, assures the Court
that the firm has and represents no interest adverse to the
interests of the Creditors Committee or the Debtors' bankruptcy
estates.

AMERICAN HOME: Retains Rights to Service DBSP Loans
---------------------------------------------------
Judge Christopher S. Sontchi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware has denied DB Structured Products, Inc.'s
request to lift the automatic stay to terminate the servicing
rights of American Home Mortgage Investment Corp.'s affiliate with
respect to certain mortgage loans.

As a result of the Bankruptcy Court's refusal to lift the
automatic stay imposed under Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code,
American Home can continue collecting payments on $189,000,000
worth of mortgages given to more than 1,600 illegal aliens,
Bloomberg News said.

American Home Mortgage Corp., as seller; American Home Mortgage
Servicing, Inc., as servicer; and DB Structured, as initial
purchaser, are parties to a Master Mortgage Loan Purchase and
Servicing Agreement dated as of May 1, 2006, pursuant to which DB
Structured purchased mortgages from AHM Corp. with the expressed
intention of engaging in securitization transactions with respect
to those mortgages.

DB Structured said that, as a result of AHM Servicing's forfeiture
of its status as Fannie Mae-qualified servicer before it sought
Chapter 11 protection, the Deutsche Bank AG affiliate has been
unable to securitize the mortgages and is suffering irremediable
harm as a result.

The Debtors and the the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
in the bankruptcy cases, however, opposed DB Structured's request,
citing that the Debtors need to retain the loans to maximize the
value to their loan-servicing unit.  The Debtors noted that they
have obtained the Bankruptcy Court's approval of a settlement,
allowing them to service $5,200,000,000 in loans under the Fannie
Mae portfolio until they complete the sale of their loan servicing
business on Oct. 31, 2007.  The Debtors intend to conduct an
auction for their loan servicing business on Oct. 5, 2007.  Bids
are due October 2.

The Court, thus, refused to grant DB Structured's request, without
prejudice.

Other banks, including Affiliates of Bear Stearns Cos., Morgan
Stanley Mortgage Capital Holdings LLC, and Calyon New York
Branch, have also asked the Court to compel American Home to turn
over the rights to collect payments and escrow funds with respect
to loans they purchased from AHM Corp.  The Court has not ruled on
their requests.

                       Going Concern Doubt

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on May 17, 2007,
De Joya Griffith & Company LLP, in Las Vegas, expressed
substantial doubt about AmeriResource Technologies Inc.'s ability
to continue as a going concern after auditing the company's
financial statement as of the years ended Dec. 31, 2006, and 2005.  
The auditing firm pointed to the company's recurring losses from
operations, negative working capital, and negative cash flows
from operations.

ARIAS ACQUISITIONS: Moody's Junks Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the corporate family rating
of Arias Acquisitions Inc. to Caa2 from B3.  Moody's also
downgraded the company's senior secured bank credit facilities to
Caa2 from B3, and its senior subordinated notes to Ca from Caa2.  
The rating outlook remains negative.  Moody's will withdraw these
ratings for business reasons.

Arias is an intermediate holding company owned by HBW Holdings
Inc, whose subsidiaries comprise a leading US provider of home
warranty products.  The rating downgrade and continuing negative
outlook reflect the severe downturn in the US housing market,
resulting in weak revenues and net losses at Arias over the past
couple of years.  Moody's believes that the housing market
downturn will last at least until 2009, with any sector recovery
likely to be sluggish for some time after that.

Citing Arias's substantial financial leverage, the rating agency
expressed concern about the firm's ability to comply with
financial covenants and to service debt under its current
borrowing arrangements.  Moody's noted that Arias has taken steps
to address the housing market slump, including reductions in work
force, consolidation of facilities, and development of more
flexible home warranty products.  Nevertheless, high financial
leverage and the weak housing market represent serious challenges
to the company.

The last rating action on Arias took place on March 5, 2007, when
Moody's downgraded the corporate family rating to B3 from B2 and
changed the rating outlook to negative from stable.

Arias, based in Denver, Colorado, is a leading US provider of new
home warranties and related products.  The company is majority-
owned by private equity firm Brera Capital Partners LLC.  Arias
generated estimated revenues of $179 million in 2006.


ARIEL WAY: UK Affiliate Exits Liquidation, Cuts Debts/Liabilities
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Ariel Way Inc. disclosed that the liquidation of dbsXmedia Ltd.,
the wholly-owned UK subsidiary of dbsXmedia Inc. and is 60%-owned
by the company, has been completed.  The company also has reduced
its debt and liabilities.  

"We are pleased to finally be able to put in place a major plan
aiming to significantly improve the value of the company and
therewith the shareholder value," Arne Dunhem, Ariel Way chairman,
president, and CEO of Ariel Way said.  "The burden of the large
amount of debt and liabilities that we have carried until now has
been a major factor making new financing and the acquisition of
new operations very difficult.  The significant reduction opens up
new alternatives for the company."
    
As of Sept. 14, 2007, the company was able to significantly reduce
its consolidated debt and liabilities to approximately $1,070,000
from $3,288,087 as of Sept. 30, 2006 and $2,592,990 as of June 30,
2007.

The significant reduction is the result of:

   -- a settlement with Loral Skynet in June, 2007;

   -- the liquidation of dbsXmedia Ltd. (UK); and

   -- the ceasing of the US operation of dbsXmedia Inc. in
      April 2006 and resulting liability reductions.
    
The management of the company intends to reduce the debt and
liabilities of the company in the future with a target of a
liability of less than approximately $500,000 before end of this
fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2007.  The Management believes this
may create alternatives for new financing and the acquisition of
new operations to grow the shareholder value.

Executive Air, L.L.C.'s chapter 11 case at 10:00 a.m., on
Sept. 28, 2007, at Room 2112, J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building, 844
North King Street, in Wilmington, Delaware.

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' cases.  The
meeting is not the meeting of creditors pursuant to Section 341
of the Bankruptcy Code.  However, a representative of the Debtor
will attend and provide background information regarding the
cases.

Creditors interested in serving on a Committee should complete
and return to the U.S. Trustee a statement indicating their
willingness to serve on an official committee.

Official creditors' committees, constituted under Section 1102 of
the Bankruptcy Code, ordinarily consist of the seven largest
creditors who are willing to serve on a committee.  In some
Chapter 11 cases, the U.S. Trustee is persuaded to appoint
multiple creditors' committees.

Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal and
accounting professionals and financial advisors, at the Debtors'
expense.  They may investigate the Debtors' business and
financial affairs.  Importantly, official committees serve as
fiduciaries to the general population of creditors they
represent.  Those committees will also attempt to negotiate the
terms of a consensual Chapter 11 plan -- almost always subject to
the terms of strict confidentiality agreements with the Debtors
and other core parties-in-interest.  If negotiations break down,
the Committee may ask the Bankruptcy Court to replace management
with an independent trustee.  If the Committee concludes that the
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 Basalt, Colorado, Aspen Executive Air, L.L.C., aka AEXJet
-- http://www.aexjet.com/-- is a private jet travel company.  The  
company filed for chapter 11 protection on Sept. 14, 2007 (Bankr.
D. Del. Case No. 07-11341).  Laura Davis Jones, Esq., at
Pachulski, Stang, Ziehl & Jones, L.L.P., represents the Debtor.  
When the Debtor filed for protection form its creditors, it listed
estimated assets between $1 million and $100 million.  The
Debtor's list of 20 largest unsecured creditors showed claims of
more than $20 million.


AVAGO TECHNOLOGIES: S&P Places 'B' Rating Under Positive Watch
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B' corporate credit
and other ratings on San Jose, California- and Singapore-based
Avago Technologies Holdings Pte. Ltd. on CreditWatch with positive
implications reflecting the company's operational stability,
despite challenging market conditions, and leverage measures that
are strong for the rating.
      
"Revenues have been flat for the past three quarters as gains in
cell phone and automotive products have offset some weakness in
wired infrastructure and computer peripherals," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Lucy Patricola.  Margins have improved
following restructuring actions and additional outsourcing.  Over
the past year, debt was modestly reduced through surplus cash
flow, leaving cash balances intact at about $200 million.  Debt to
EBITDA is about 3x.
     
S&P will meet with management to review the company's expectations
for operational trends in the near to intermediate term and
financial policies with respect to acquisitions in order to
determine the final impact on the credit rating.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 12, 2007,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said its 'BB+' corporate
credit and senior secured ratings on Bausch & Lomb Inc. remain
on CreditWatch with negative implications in light of the
July 5, 2007 acquisition bid by Advanced Medical Optics Inc.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on May 18, 2007,
Moody's Investors Service stated that it will continue its review
of Bausch & Lomb Incorporated's ratings for possible downgrade
following the announcement that the company has entered into a
definitive merger agreement with affiliates of Warburg Pincus.

Ratings subject to review for possible downgrade include the
company's Ba1 Corporate Family rating and Ba1 Probability of
Default rating.

In addition, the Warburg Pincus deal prompted Fitch to maintain
its Negative Rating Watch on the company.  Fitch also warned that
the transaction would significantly increase leverage and likely
result in a multiple-notch downgrade, including an Issuer Default
Rating of no higher than 'BB-'.


BAYONNE MEDICAL: State's $3 Million Funding Rescues Operations
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bayonne Medical Center has been saved from closure by a
$3 million charity care funding provided to it by the state,
various reports say.

The request for additional funds was prompted by some of Bayonne
Medical Center's creditors who asked for the hospital to close on
Sept. 19, Al Sullivan of Bayonne Community News relates.

According to an Associated Press writer, Bayonne will look for
other sources of money to keep the hospital open until it gets
into a deal selling the facility.

Although no layoffs are expected in the short term, AP said
should the health care facility shuts down, about 900 union jobs
and roughly 200 administrative positions will be affected.

In yet another development, Ronald Leir, a staff writer for The
Jersey Journal, reports that the Hon. Morris Stern of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey froze
payments to all the Debtor's professionals until the facility
is sold.

Based in Bayonne, New Jersey, Bayonne Medical Center --
http://www.bayonnemedicalcenter.org/-- provides healthcare     
services and operates a medical center.  The company operates a

BOMBAY COMPANY: Files for Chapter 11 and CCAA Protection
--------------------------------------------------------
The Bombay Company Inc. has filed voluntary petitions for
reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code for
itself and its U.S. subsidiaries.  The filing, which was made in
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Fort
Worth Division, is part of the company's efforts to address
financial challenges and identify a strategic or financial
investor.  Bombay's Canadian operations also will be seeking
protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act in
Canada.

In addition, the company filed a variety of "first day motions" to
support its employees, vendors, customers and other stakeholders;
to obtain interim financing authority and maintain existing cash
management programs; to retain legal, financial and other
professionals; to support the Company's reorganization case; and
for other relief.

Bombay has taken this action after determining that reorganizing
under Chapter 11 is in the best long-term interests of the
company, its employees, customers, creditors, business partners
and other stakeholders.  During this process, the company intends
to:

   -- Conduct business as usual through its retail stores and
      Internet websites;

   -- Honor its customer service policies such as returns,
      exchanges, credits, and its gift card program;

   -- Pay "post-petition" vendors, suppliers and other business
      partners for goods and services provided; and

   -- Continue to pay employees' wages and salaries, offering
      the same medical, dental, life insurance, disability and   
      other benefits, and to accrue vacation time without
      interruption.

"After considering a wide range of alternatives, this course of
action was seen as the best route to help preserve our
internationally respected brand while working to secure our
future," David B. Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of the Company,
said.  "With a tremendous talent pool and an excellent selection
of high quality home accessories and furnishings, we are confident
that our business will emerge from this process stronger and more
competitive.  We are very grateful for the dedication and hard
work of all our employees and look forward to providing them with
a clear road map for success."

To help fund its business during the Chapter 11 proceedings,
Bombay has secured a commitment for a $115 million debtor-in-
possession financing facility from General Electric Capital
Corporation and GE Canada Finance Holding Company.

BRIGGS & STRATTON: S&P Affirms BB+ Corporate Credit Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
Wauwatosa, Wisconsin–based Briggs & Stratton Corp. to negative
from stable.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed all
existing ratings on the company, including the 'BB+' corporate
credit rating.
     
"The outlook revision reflects Briggs & Stratton's weaker-than-
expected operating performance for fiscal 2007, and credit
measures that are weak for the rating" said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Christopher Johnson.
     
The company faces operating challenges resulting from factors such
as reduced demand from original equipment manufacturers, a product
mix shift to lower horsepower engines, and volatile generator
sales.  "As a result, sales declined about 15% for fiscal 2007,
and average total debt to EBITDA has weakened to 3.8x from 2.6x in
fiscal 2006," said Mr. Johnson.  The company will need to reduce
average leverage to about 3x over the intermediate term to
maintain the ratings.
     
The ratings on Briggs & Stratton reflect the mature and
increasingly competitive nature of the company's end markets and
the high degree of seasonality in its businesses, which are
susceptible to adverse weather conditions.  These factors are
somewhat offset by the company's leading market position as a
producer of air-cooled gasoline engines and engine-powered
outdoor equipment, in addition to its broad product portfolio.


CAITHNESS COSO: Offers to Buy $90 Mil. of Secured Notes & Bonds
---------------------------------------------------------------
Caithness Coso Funding Corp. is offering to purchase for cash any
and all of its outstanding $90,000,000 original principal amount
of:

   -- 6.263% Subordinated Secured Notes due 2014 (CUSIP Nos.
      128017AK6 and U12295AD0); and

   -- $375,000,000 original principal amount of 5.489% Senior
      Secured Bonds due 2019 (CUSIP Nos. 128017AG5 and
      U12295AC2).

The terms are subject to the conditions set forth in the offer to
purchase and consent solicitation statement, dated Sept. 18, 2007,
and the accompanying consent and letter of transmittal.

The company is also soliciting consents from holders of the notes
for certain proposed amendments that would eliminate substantially
all of the restrictive covenants and certain events of default
contained in the indentures under which the notes were issued and
certain proposed waivers that would waive:

   a) the change of control offer provisions required in
      connection with a change of control; and

   b) the notice provisions required in connection with an
      optional redemption by the company to allow the
      flexibility to promptly redeem any notes that are not
      tendered by the expiration time.

Adoption of the proposed amendments and the proposed waivers
requires that holders of at least 51% of the aggregate outstanding
principal amount of each of the 2014 Notes and the 2019 Bonds not
owned by the company or its affiliates shall have delivered valid
consents, which have not been withdrawn, and the company and the
trustee for the notes shall have
executed and delivered supplemental indentures setting forth the
proposed amendments and proposed waivers to the indentures.

Pursuant to the terms of the purchase and sale agreement, by and
among Caithness Energy L.L.C., certain owners of Caithness Energy,
certain subsidiaries of Caithness Energy and ArcLight Renewco
Holdings LLC, each dated July 9, 2007, Renewco agreed to acquire a
100% direct ownership interest in:

   a. Coso Finance Partners;
   b. Coso Energy Developers;
   c. Coso Power Developers;
   d. Coso Land Company
   e. China Lake Joint Venture;

Renewco will also acquire a 100% indirect ownership interest in
the company and Coso Transmission Line Partners.

The consent solicitation will expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City
time, on Oct. 1, 2007, unless earlier terminated or extended.  The
offer will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on Oct.
16, 2007, unless earlier terminated or extended.

The total consideration to be paid for each $1,000 in principal
amount of notes validly tendered and accepted for purchase,
subject to the terms and conditions of the offer documents, will
be paid in cash and will be calculated based on the 4.75% U.S.
Treasury Note due March 31, 2011, and on the 3.875% U.S. Treasury
Note due Feb. 15, 2013, for the 2014 Notes and the 2019 Bonds,

applicable settlement date multiplied by a scaling factor that
reflects the fact that the notes are subject to principal
amortization.

The total consideration includes a consent payment equal to $20
per $1,000 in principal amount of notes.  Holders will only be
eligible to receive the consent payment if they validly tender
their notes at or prior to the consent time.  

Holders who validly tender and do not properly withdraw their
Notes at or prior to the consent time will be eligible to receive
the total consideration, multiplied by the applicable scaling
factor.  Holders who validly tender and do not properly withdraw
their notes after the consent time, but at or prior to the
expiration time, will be eligible to receive the total
consideration less the consent payment, multiplied by the
applicable scaling factor.  

In either case, all holders who validly tender and do not properly
withdraw their notes will receive accrued and unpaid interest up
to the applicable settlement date.

Provided that the conditions to the Offer have been satisfied or
waived, payment for notes purchased in the offer and consents
delivered in the consent solicitation shall be made on either the
initial settlement date, which is expected to be after the date on
which the conditions to the tender offer are satisfied, unless the
company, in its sole discretion, extends or forgoes the initial
settlement date for notes that are validly tendered and not
withdrawn at or prior the consent time or the final settlement
date, which is expected to be after the expiration time for notes
that are validly tendered after the consent time, but at or prior
to the expiration time and not properly withdrawn.

Holders who tender their notes must consent to the proposed
amendments and waivers.  Tendered notes may be withdrawn and the
related consents may be revoked at any time at or prior to 5:00
p.m. New York City time, on Oct. 1, 2007.

The company's offer and consent solicitation are conditioned on:

    -- the closing of the Acquisitions shall have occurred;

    -- Renewco and its direct and indirect subsidiaries, shall
       have received proceeds from senior debt financing and
       lease financing all on terms acceptable to Renewco in
       its sole discretion, which in the aggregate, together
       with equity contributions from Renewco, is expected to
       be sufficient to fund consummation of the Acquisitions
       and the payment of all amounts in connection with the
       Offer and Consent Solicitation; and

    -- the satisfaction of the Minimum Consent Condition.

The company has retained Citi to act as sole Dealer Manager for
the Offer and as the Solicitation Agent for the Consent
Solicitation.

CALPINE CORP: Files Second Amended Reorganization Plan
------------------------------------------------------
Calpine Corporation and certain of its subsidiaries have filed a
second Amended Plan of Reorganization and related Disclosure
Statement with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York.

The Amended Plan filed, maintains all key terms provided under the
first Amended Plan filed by the company in August 2007. Calpine
remains on track to have the Amended Plan confirmed during the 4th
Quarter 2007.

On Aug. 27, 2007, assuming Calpine's Amended Plan is confirmed by
Dec. 31, 2007, and subject to the assumptions set forth in the
Disclosure Statement, Calpine estimates that the reorganized
Calpine will have a midpoint reorganization value of
$21.7 billion.

At emergence, Calpine estimates that its total enterprise value
will be between $19.2 billion to $21.3 billion, with a midpoint of
$20.3 billion, and estimates that distributable cash will be
approximately $1.4 billion.
    
"Calpine will continue to move forward through the restructuring
process to emerge as a financially stable, stand-alone company
with an improved competitive position in the energy industry,"
Robert P. May, Calpine's chief executive officer, said.  "We
remain grateful to our employees, customers, vendors and partners
for their support throughout this process."
    
Allowed claims are still anticipated to range from $20.1 billion
to $22 billion after completion of Calpine's claims objection,
reconciliation, and resolution process.  Under this range of
potential allowed claims, general unsecured creditors will receive
from 95% to 100% of their allowed claims.

Calpine estimates that their return would be approximately $2.05
per existing share of Calpine common stock, calculated assuming
the midpoint of the reorganization value.  Because disputed claims
and the total enterprise value of Calpine upon its emergence have
not yet been finally adjudicated, no assurances can be given that
actual recoveries to creditors and interest holders will not be
materially higher or lower.
    
A hearing to consider the adequacy of the Disclosure Statement is
scheduled for Sept. 25, 2007.  Once the Bankruptcy Court approves
of the Disclosure Statement, the company can begin the process of
soliciting votes for approval of the Amended Plan.

After the voting process, Calpine will ask the Bankruptcy Court to
hold a hearing to consider approval or "confirmation" of the
Amended Plan.  If the Court confirms the Amended Plan, Calpine
would emerge from Chapter 11 shortly thereafter.

CARDIMA INC: Inks Settlement Pact on $26.4 Million Apix Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
Cardima Inc. has reached a preliminary understanding with its
principal creditor, Apix International Limited regarding a debt
settlement.  Under the terms of the settlement, the company will
repay all outstanding debt obligations to the Lender, and
repurchase all warrants held by the Lender, by issuing to the
Lender a total of 88 million shares of the company at a price of
$0.30 per share in full settlement of the $26,400,000 owed to the
Lender.

Completion of the transaction is subject to execution of
definitive agreements.

"This transaction shows the confidence of investors in the future
of the company and marks a significant step towards strengthening
the company's financial position by settling the significant debt
that had built up over the past two years as a result of the
Lender providing financial support for the company during this
critical period," Rob Cheney, chief executive officer of Cardima,
said

Headquartered in Fremont, California, Cardima Inc. (OTC BB:
CRDM.OB) -- http://www.cardima.com/-- has developed the  
PATHFINDER(R) series of diagnostic catheters, the REVELATION(R)
series ablation system and the Surgical Ablation System for the
diagnosis and treatment of tachycardias.  The REVELATION(R) series
with the INTELLITEMP energy management system was developed for

Cardima Inc.'s consolidated balance sheet at June 30, 2007, showed

resulting in a $15.3 million total stockholders' deficit.

                      Going Concern Doubt

Marc Lumer & Company, in San Francisco, expressed substantial
doubt about Cardima Inc.'s ability to continue as a going concern
after auditing the company's consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2006.  The auditing firm pointed to the
company's recurring losses from operations.


CBA GROUP: S&P Affirms Ratings and Revises Outlook to Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
Binghamton, New York-based CBA Group LLC to negative from stable,
reflecting concerns that the company may be challenged to meet
near-term covenant compliance given the step-downs incorporated
into the credit agreement.  The corporate credit rating is
affirmed at 'B' and the senior secured debt is affirmed at 'B+'.

While the company's operating performance is improving modestly,
CBA's credit agreement calls for step-downs in the September and
December quarters that will require sizeable improvements in
EBITDA, either through revenue growth or higher margins.
      
"The rating reflects the company's light penetration in expanding
segments of global PCB assembly, as well as its high leverage and
modest cash flow," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Lucy
Patricola.  These factors are partially offset by a solid customer
base of key original equipment manufacturers and electronic
manufacturing service providers and a legacy of technology
strength in complex, precision assembly operations.
     
The PCB assembly business has migrated steadily to high-volume,
low-cost manufacturing, largely located in China, to meet pricing
pressures and the increasing share of consumer electronics in the
global electronics industry.  Although CBA has been strong in
supplying machines that serve the needs for highly precise,
complex PCB assembly, the company has been slow to develop market
presence and a placement product that meets high-volume assembly
requirements.  In addition, the Vitronics Soltec operation, which
supplies soldering equipment, has a weak presence in Asia.
     
CBA is expected to experience some degree of market acceptance of
its high volume products, reversing earlier revenue declines.  For
the June 2007 quarter, revenues improved sequentially by about 5%,
and gross margins and EBITDA improved, signaling the early stage
of a recovery.  Annualizing June results, unadjusted, debt to
EBITDA is adequate for the rating in the mid-5x area.


CHARLES RIVER: Moody's Cuts $4.8 Mil. Class C Notes' Rating to Ba3
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded these notes issued by Charles
River CDO I Ltd:

-- $4,800,000 Class C Fixed Rate Notes Due Dec. 9, 2037

    Prior Rating: Ba2 (on review for possible downgrade)

    Current Rating: Ba3

According to Moody's, the rating action is the result of
deterioration in the credit quality of the transaction's
underlying collateral pool, which consists primarily of structured
finance securities.


CHEM RX: Moody's Rates Proposed $135 Million Term Loans at B1
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to Chem Rx
Corporation's proposed $25 million senior secured revolver due
2012, proposed $90 million senior secured term loan due 2013 and
proposed $20 million delayed draw term loan due 2013

Moody's also assigned a Caa1 rating to a proposed $42 million
second lien term loan due 2014.

Concurrently, Moody's assigned a B2 Corporate Family Rating, B2
Probability of Default Rating, an SGL-3 Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating, and a stable ratings outlook.  This is the first
time that Moody's is rating the debt of Chem Rx, a provider of
institutional pharmacy services to skilled nursing facilities and
other long-term healthcare institutions, which currently is a
private company in the process of being acquired by a publicly
traded corporation, Paramount Acquisition Corporation - not rated
by Moody's.

Proceeds from the credit facilities will be used, along with cash
equity, to finance the purchase of Chem Rx by Paramount, to repay
Chem Rx's existing debt and to fund transaction fees and expenses.  
The transaction is subject to Paramount shareholder approval and
is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2007.

The B2 Corporate Family Rating considers Moody's expectation that
the company will likely be generating modest to negative free cash
flow over the intermediate term.  Pressure on cash flow notably
results from the company's material working capital requirements,
modest revenue size and concentration of business within one
segment.  The company's probable growth through organic growth
and/or acquisition which would likely require debt financed
capital expenditures, is also reflected in the B2 CFR.

Sidney Matti, Analyst, stated that, "Over the near term, the
company's free cash flow cushion will likely remain tight and may
experience a decline resulting in negative free cash flow to
debt."  In Moody's opinion, offsetting the low to negative free
cash flow generation is Moody's expectation for the company's
access to a $25 million revolver.

Chem Rx's adequate expected EBIT coverage of pro forma interest
expense at about 2 times, moderately high financial leverage
(adjusted debt to EBITDA less than 5 times) and adequate near term
liquidity are key factors partially mitigating other credit
concerns.  These other concerns incorporated in the ratings
include the highly competitive industry in which Chem Rx operates
(Omnicare, with revenues of approximately $6.3 billion - rated Ba3
CFR; negative outlook - is a direct competitor).

The stability of the ratings outlook is largely dependent upon the
consistency of free cash flow.  If the company were to experience
sustained performance that is below expectations resulting in
reduced liquidity, there could be negative ratings consequences.  
The outlook also considers that the company will not engage in a
material debt financed acquisition or shareholder friendly
activities over the intermediate term.

The SGL-3 liquidity rating reflects an expectation that Chem Rx
should generate modest to negative free cash flow over the next
four quarters.  Mandatory term amortization should not be
material.  Liquidity is further supported by an expectation that
the company will maintain orderly access to availability under the
proposed $25 million revolving credit facility to cover cash
shortfalls.  At the time of this review, the financial and other
credit agreement covenants and limitations (including vendor/trade
security subordination) were not yet finalized.

The ratings are subject to the execution of the proposed purchase
and financings and to the review of the finalized credit
agreement.

These ratings were assigned:

-- B2 Corporate Family Rating;

-- B2 Probability of Default Rating;

-- SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating;

-- B1 (LGD3/34%) rating on a $25 million Senior Secured
    Revolver due 2012;

-- B1 (LGD3/34%) rating on a $90 Senior Secured Term Loan due
    2013;

-- B1 (LGD3/34%) rating on a $20 million Delayed Draw Term
    Loan due 2013; and

-- Caa1 (LGD5/84%) rating on a $42 million Second Lien Term
    Loan due 2014;

Headquartered in Long Beach, New York, Chem Rx Corporation
provides institutional pharmacy services to skilled nursing
facilities and other long-term healthcare institutions.  Chem Rx
is being acquired by Paramount Acquisition Corp, which is a
Special Purpose Acquisition Corp. formed in 2005 to effect a
business combination with an unidentified operating business in
the healthcare industry.  For the twelve months ended
June 30, 2007, Chem Rx generated about $286 million in revenues.

         assets; and

      -- subject to appropriate court approval, and upon a sale,
         advise Debtor's management on the execution of sale
         closing documentation.

The Debtor will pay Broadway a fixed fee of $25,000 per month.  
Broadway will also charge a "success fee" when there is a sale of
all or substantially all of the Debtor's assets, confirmation of a
plan, or other liquidation, but only if the Debtor retains at
least $500,000 in funds.  The success fee will be calculated as 6%
of all gross proceeds up to a total of $4 million from the sales,
auctions or liquidations of the Debtor's assets, and 5%, 4%, 3%,
2% and 1% for each subsquent $1 million in additional gross
proceeds.  The minimum success fee is $200,000.

However, in the event that the Debtor will require additional
services like function of an interim Chief Restructuring Officer,
the Debtor will pay for the additional services at the firm 's
normal hourly rates.  Currently, the firm's rates ranges from $100
to $350.  Broadway anticipates that these employees of the firm
will work for the Debtor:

          Professional             Hourly Rate
          ------------             -----------
          Alfred M. Masse              $350
          Thomas S. Paccioretti        $350
          Walt Saxum                   $225

As of Aug. 20, 2007, Broadway holds a $40,000 balance to the
retainer the Debtor paid prior to the bankruptcy filing date.  The
balance of the retainer will be held as an advance against fees
and costs to be rendered by Broadway during the case when its
employment is authorized.

The Debtor assures the Court that Broadway does not hold or
represent an interest adverse to the estate.

COLUMBUS MCKINNON: Moody's Holds Corporate Family Rating at B1
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the ratings of Columbus
McKinnon Corporation:

-- corporate family rating at B1
-- probability of default at B1
-- senior subordinate at B2.

Moody's also changed the company's outlook to positive from
stable.  The change in outlook reflects CMCO's strong operations
resulting in robust cash flows and solid debt coverage metrics.

CMCO is benefiting from the global growth in the industrial and
manufacturing industries which have led to solid demand and
revenue growth.  CMCO maintains a strong competitive market
position with solid product offerings.  Strong global demand for
the company's products and improved internal efficiencies have
contributed to solid credit metrics for the B1 rating category.

For LTM June 2007, CMCO's key credit metrics were:

-- EBITDA margin exceeding 16%; free cash flow/debt near 18%;

-- debt/EBITDA at 2.4 times; and,

-- EBIT/Interest expense of 4.4 times (all ratios adjusted per
    Moody's FM methodology).

The corporate family rating incorporates Moody's belief that CMCO
will also pursue "bolt-on" acquisitions that could require
incremental capital investments.  Additionally, the company has
sales concentrated in North America, making CMCO susceptible to
regional volatility that can lead to fluctuations in its revenue
base.  However, CMCO's improving operating efficiencies as well as
prudent financial policies and very good liquidity profile should
enable the company to maintain its ratings in the event of a
modest downturn in its end markets.

The positive outlook reflects Moody's expectations that CMCO will
continue to pursue conservative financial policies resulting in
debt protection measures supportive of a higher rating.

The rating for the senior subordinate notes reflect both the
overall probability of default of the company, to which Moody's
assigns a PDR of B1, and a loss given default of LGD 4.  The B2
rating assigned to the $136 million senior subordinated notes
(rated one notch below the corporate family rating) are the most
junior obligations in CMCO's capital structure.
These ratings/assessments were affected by this action:

-- Corporate family rating affirmed at B1;

-- Probability of default rating affirmed at B1;

-- $136 million senior subordinated notes due 2013 remain at
    B2, but its loss given default assessment is changed to
    LGD4 (67%) from LGD5 (71%).

Columbus McKinnon Corporation, headquartered in Amherst, New York,
is a manufacturer of material handling products.  Revenues for the
twelve months ended June 30, 2007 totaled about $590 million.

DOMTAR CORP: Earns $11 Million in Second Quarter Ended July 1
-------------------------------------------------------------
Domtar Corporation reported net income of $11.0 million in the
second quarter ended July 1, 2007, compared to a net loss of
$12.0 million in the second quarter ended June 25, 2006.

Sales for the second quarter of 2007 amounted to $1.62 billion, an
increase of $811 million, or 100.0%, from sales of $809.0 million
in the second quarter of 2006 primarily due to the acquisition of
Domtar Inc.  

Excluding sales of $801.0 million attributable to Domtar Inc.,
sales for the second quarter of 2007 amounted to $819.0 million,
an increase of $10.0 million compared to the second quarter of
2006.  

The increase was mainly attributable to higher average selling
prices for pulp and paper, partially offset by lower shipments for
all of the company's major products, mostly as a result of mill
and sawmill closures, including the indefinite closure of the
company's Prince Albert pulp mill effective in the second quarter
of 2006 and the permanent closure of one paper machine at the
company's Dryden, Ontario mill effective in the second quarter of
2006, and lower average selling prices for wood products.

                      Management's Comments

"Our company is moving on several fronts and the second quarter
proved to be quite eventful.  On synergies, the process is well
underway and our people have shifted to the implementation mode in
an effort to quickly deliver results.  On integration, our new
sales organization is now in place with their focus on providing
our customers the service solutions they expect.  We are also
actively pursuing strategic initiatives with the sale of our Wood
business expected to close by year-end and more recently with the
announcement of the permanent closure of three paper machines as
part of our review of overall production capacity, including some
mill overlaps," said Raymond Royer, president and chief executive
officer.

Commenting on the second quarter, Mr. Royer added: "Adjusting for
the seasonally high level of maintenance work at several of our
operations, Domtar continues to strengthen its profitability
despite soft demand for uncoated freesheet papers in North America
and the strength of the Canadian dollar.  In these circumstances,
I am particularly proud of our cash flow generation in the quarter
and with our progress toward debt reduction.  This is a tribute to
our employees who have joined forces from the very beginning in
this venture.  Their pride and good will are reshaping the look of
our organization."

                 Combination of Weyerhaeuser Fine
                  Paper Business and Domtar Inc.

Domtar Corporation started its operations on March 7, 2007,
following the combination of the Weyerhaeuser Fine Paper Business
and Domtar Inc.  Prior to the completion of this transaction, the
Weyerhaeuser Fine Paper Business was operated by Weyerhaeuser
Company.

The results reported for the second quarter of 2006 include only
the results of operations of the Weyerhaeuser Fine Paper Business,
on a carve-out basis.

                          Balance Sheet

At July 1, 2007, the company's consolidated balance sheet showed
$7.89 billion in total assets, $4.80 billion in total liabilities,
and $3.09 billion in total stockholders' equity.

The company's consolidated balance at July 1, 2007, also showed
strained liquidity with $1.71 billion in total current assets
available to pay $2.42 billion in total current liabilities.

Full-text copies of the company's consolidated financial
statements for the quarter ended July 1, 2007, are available for
free at http://researcharchives.com/t/s?239b

                        Capital Resources

Net indebtedness was $2.44 billion as at July 1, 2007, compared to
$43.0 million as at Dec. 31, 2006. The $2.39 billion increase in
net indebtedness was due to the outstanding indebtedness of Domtar
Inc. at the time of the combination of the Weyerhaeuser Fine Paper
Business with Domtar Inc. and borrowings under the company's
credit agreement entered into in connection with said transaction.

As at July 1, 2007, the company had no amounts drawn under its  
revolving credit facility and $49.0 million of letters of credit
outstanding resulting in $701.0 million of availability for future
drawings under this facility.  An additional letter of credit of
$2.0 million was outstanding in connection with an industrial
revenue bond.

                             Outlook

Going into the second half of the year, fine paper volumes are
expected to remain under pressure compared to last year while
price realizations should improve compared to the second quarter
as a result of the carry over from the price increases for copy
paper and for pulp implemented late in the quarter. In light of
the decline in North American demand for fine papers and the
resulting excess capacity, notably in commercial printing paper
grades, Domtar will continue to monitor its production and
inventories to meet customer demand.

DUKE FUNDING: Fitch Downgrades Ratings on Four Note Classes
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch has downgraded four classes of notes and placed four classes
of notes from Duke Funding High Grade II-S / EGAM I, LTD. on
Rating Watch Negative.

These rating actions are effective immediately:

  -- $60,000,000 class B1 notes rated 'AA+' placed on Rating
     Watch Negative;

  -- $25,000,000 series 2 class B1 notes rated 'AA+' placed on
     Rating Watch Negative;

  -- $78,000,000 class B2 notes rated 'AA-' placed on Rating
     Watch Negative;

  -- $32,500,000 series 2 class B2 notes rated 'AA-' placed on
     Rating Watch Negative;

  -- $48,000,000 class C notes downgraded to 'BB' from 'A' and
     placed on Rating Watch Negative;

  -- $20,000,000 series 2 class C notes downgraded to 'BB' from
     'A' and placed on Rating Watch Negative;

  -- $21,000,000 class D notes downgraded to 'B' from 'BBB' and
     placed on Rating Watch Negative;

  -- $8,750,000 series 2 class D notes downgraded to 'B' from
     'BBB' and placed on Rating Watch Negative.

The ratings of the class B-1 and B-2 notes reflect the likelihood
that investors will receive periodic interest payments through the
redemption date as well as their respective stated principal
balances.  The ratings of class C and D notes only reflect the
likelihood that investors will ultimately receive their interest
and principal balances upon the legal final maturity date.

Duke Funding is a collateralized debt obligation that closed March
15, 2006 and is managed by Ellington Global Asset Management, LLC,
a majority owned subsidiary of Ellington Management Group, LLC.  
The proceeds of the notes are used to acquire a diversified
portfolio of 'AAA' rated, primarily floating-rate private-label
prime, mid-prime, and sub-prime residential mortgage-backed
securities.

The portfolio is levered using reverse repurchase agreements. The
notes have been placed on RWN due to concerns about continued
availability of repo funding with terms similar to those that are
currently in place with respect to haircuts and funding rates.  
The reinvestment period of the transaction has been suspended due
to reduction in long-term repo capacity and breach of committed
excess liquidity test.  

The credit quality of the underlying assets has remained stable
but the manager has deleveraged the structure and realized some
losses.  The junior classes were downgraded due to reduction in
credit enhancement from realized losses and drop in market value
of underlying assets.


EMBS V: Fitch Withdraws Junk Ratings on Two Note Classes
--------------------------------------------------------
Fitch has downgraded one class of notes issued by Enhanced
Mortgage-Backed Securities V, Ltd. and withdrawn ratings on two
classes.  These rating actions are the result of Fitch's review
process and are effective immediately.

  -- $20,000,000 class A-3 subordinated notes downgraded to
     'C/DR4' from 'CC/DR3';

  -- $6,000,000 class A-4 junior subordinated notes rated
     'C/DR6' have been withdrawn;

  -- $30,000,000 class B junior subordinated income notes rated
     'C/DR6' have been withdrawn.

The $130,000,000 class A-1 senior notes and $14,000,000 class A-2
senior subordinated notes have been paid in full.

The ratings of the class A notes reflected the likelihood that
investors would receive quarterly interest payments through the
redemption date as well as their respective stated principal
balances.  The rating of the income notes reflected the likelihood
that investors would receive aggregate payments in an amount equal
to the principal amount on or prior to the redemption date.

EMBS V was a mortgage market value collateralized debt obligation
managed by Babson Capital Management LLC.  This transaction had
violated over-collateralization tests and its portfolio was
liquidated.  The asset portfolio had primarily mortgage-backed
securities and asset-backed securities with an average rating of
'AA'.  The liquidation proceeds were sufficient to pay class A-1
and A-2 notes in full and class A-3 notes partially.  Fitch
expects recovery on class A-3 notes to be in 'DR3' range (30%-
50%).  Class A-4 notes suffered a complete loss. Class B notes
recovery (includes all distributions to class B notes) was in
'DR6' range (< 10%).


FINISAR CORP: Obtains Additional Nasdaq Noncompliance Notice
-------------------------------------------------------------
Finisar Corporation has received on Sept. 14, 2007, an Additional
Staff Determination notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market stating
that Finisar is not in compliance with Nasdaq's Marketplace Rule
4310(c)(14) because it did not timely file its report on Form 10-Q
for the fiscal quarter ended July 29, 2007, and therefore, that
its common stock is subject to delisting from the Nasdaq Global
Select Market.

On Sept. 11, 2007, Finisar filed a Form 12b-25 with the Securities
and Exchange Commission reporting that it had delayed filing the
July 10-Q pending the completion of a review of its historical
stock option grant practices being conducted by the Audit
Committee of its board of directors.

Finisar plans to file the July 10-Q as soon as practicable after
the conclusion of the review.

Finisar had previously received similar Staff Determination
notices with respect to its failure to timely file its quarterly
reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended Oct. 29, 2006, and
Jan. 28, 2007, and its Form 10-K report for the fiscal year ended
April 30, 2007.

In response to the original Staff Determination notice, Finisar
requested a hearing before the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications
Panel, which was held on Feb. 15, 2007.  At the hearing, Finisar
requested that its common stock continue to be listed pending
completion of the Audit Committee's review of Finisar's stock
option grant practices, the preparation of restated financial
statements and the filing of the October 10-Q.  Finisar
supplemented its request to cover the delayed filing of the
January 10-Q.

The Panel issued a decision on April 4, 2007, granting Finisar an
extension of time to June 11, 2007, to file the October 10-Q and
any required restatements of its financial statements and an
extension of time to July 3, 2007, to file the January 10-Q.

Finisar appealed the Panel's decision to the Nasdaq Listing and
Hearing Review Council and requested that the Listing Council stay
the Panel's decision, and any future Panel decisions to delist
Finisar's securities, pending appeal.  The Listing Council has
agreed to review the April 4, 2007, decision of the Panel and has
stayed the Panel's April 4, 2007, decision.

On Aug. 9, 2007, Finisar supplemented its previous submission to
Nasdaq to include the Form 10-K in its pending request for
additional time to make required filings and submitted additional
information to the Listing Council.  The Listing Council will
review the matter on the basis of the written record.

Finisar intends to further supplement its previous submission to
Nasdaq to include the July 10-Q in its pending request for
additional time to make required filings.  

There can be no assurance that the Listing Council will grant
Finisar's request for continued listing.  Pending a decision by
the Listing Council, Finisar's common stock will continue to be
traded on the Nasdaq Global Select Market.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 19, 2007,
Moody's Investors Service assigned to First Data Corporation a B2
Corporate Family Rating and Ba3 rating to senior secured credit
facilities related to its acquisition by Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts
& Co.  The rating outlook for the new ratings is stable.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Greenwood Village, Colorado-based First Data Corp. to
'B+' from 'BB+' and removed the rating from CreditWatch, where it
was placed on April 2, 2007, with negative implications.  The
outlook is negative.

Upon conclusion of its review of First Data Corp.'s new capital
structure for the expected close of its leveraged buy-out
transaction with Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.'s, Fitch Ratings
has taken these rating actions on FDC: Long-term Issuer Default
Rating downgraded to 'B+' from 'BBB' and removed from Rating Watch
Negative; $2 billion senior secured revolving credit facility due
2013 rated 'BB/RR2'; and $13 billion senior secured term loan B
due 2014 rated 'BB/RR2'.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.


FLEXTRONICS INT'L: Moody's Puts (P)Ba1 Rating on $2.5 Billion Loan
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a provisional (P)Ba1 rating to
Flextronics International Ltd.'s proposed $2.5 billion unsecured
term loan that will be used to finance the cash consideration
portion of the pending acquisition of Solectron Corporation.

This provisional rating assumes a corporate family rating of Ba1.  
In addition, the rating for the proposed term loan reflect both
the overall probability of default of the company, to which
Moody's assumes a PDR of Ba1, and a loss given default of LGD 4.  
All of the company's ratings remain under review for possible
downgrade pending consummation of the company's merger with
Solectron.

The transaction is expected to close in October 2007.  It is
likely that if the transaction closes as contemplated, the CFR
will be affirmed at Ba1.  The prospective term loan rating is
subject to closing of the transaction, review of final
documentation and no material change in the terms and conditions
of the transaction as advised to Moody's.
                 
Flextronics International Ltd, headquartered in Singapore and with
its main U.S. offices in San Jose, California, is one of the
largest global providers of contract electronics manufacturing
services to OEMs.  Upon the merger with Solectron, its focus will
be primarily with networking and communications equipment,
enterprise and personal computing, and mobile and consumer digital
markets.


FONIX CORP: June 30 Balance Sheet Upside-Down by $54.4 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fonix Corporation's consolidated balance sheet at June 30, 2007,
showed $2.9 million in total assets and $57.3 million in total
liabilities, resulting in a $54.4 million total stockholders'
deficit.

The company's consolidated balance sheet at June 30, 2007, also
showed strained liquidity with $103,000 in total current assets,
available to pay $53.7 million in total current liabilities.

The company reported a net loss of $1.1 million for the second
quarter ended June 30, 2007, compared with a net loss of

FORD MOTOR: Top U.S. Marketing Exec Francisco Codina Retires
------------------------------------------------------------
Ford Motor Company President and Chief Executive Officer Alan
Mulally disclosed changes to his senior leadership team with the
elevation of two key executives and the retirement of another.

Francisco Codina, group vice president, North American Marketing
Sales and Service, has elected to retire after 30 years with Ford
Motor Company.  His retirement is effective Nov. 1, 2007.  Ford is
beginning an immediate search for his replacement.

"Cisco's passion and dedication to Ford will be missed," Mark
Fields, executive vice president and president – The Americas,
said.  "Under Cisco's leadership, we began to stabilize our retail
market share, energize our dealers, improve the resale value of
our vehicles and speak with a more confident tone in our
marketing."

Mr. Codina joined Ford in 1977 and has served as vice president –
Ford Customer Service Division, as well as general marketing
manager for Ford Division, president of Ford of Argentina and a
variety of sales and marketing assignments throughout the U.S.  He
was appointed group vice president, Marketing, Sales and Service
in January 2006.

John Parker, 59, has been elected an executive vice president of
Ford Motor Company - Asia Pacific and Africa, one of the company's
three core regional business units.  Mr. Parker has been leading
the region as a group vice president, based in Bangkok, Thailand.  
He will continue to have responsibility for all of Ford's
operations and partnerships within Asia Pacific and Africa,
including Mazda.  He continues to report to Mr. Mulally.

"John is a tremendous leader delivering solid results in the
world's fastest growing and most dynamic region," Mr. Mulally
said.  "With John leading the way, Ford is poised for fast growth
in Asia, as we work together to create the products that customers
really want and value."

Mike Bannister, chairman and chief executive officer of Ford Motor
Credit Company, also has been elected an executive vice president
of Ford Motor Company.  Mr. Bannister, 57, will continue to be
responsible for all operations of Ford Motor Credit worldwide,
reporting to Don Leclair, executive vice president and chief
financial officer.

"Mike is an exceptional leader with tremendous business and
financial acumen," Mr. Mulally said.  "He is steering us to ever
higher levels of excellence at Ford Motor Credit, which remains
strategically core to our company's future.  Under Mike's
continued leadership, Ford Motor Credit is performing solidly
through reduced costs, improved effectiveness and streamlined
global operations."

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 30, 2007,
Moody's Investors Service said that the performance of Ford Motor
Company's global automotive operations for the second quarter of
2007 was significantly stronger than the previous year and better
than street expectations.

However, Moody's explained that the company continues to face
significant competitive and financial challenges, and the rating
agency expects that Ford's credit metrics and rate of cash
consumption will likely remain consistent with no higher than a B3
corporate family rating level into 2008.

According to the rating agency, Ford's corporate family rating is
currently a B3 with a negative outlook.  The rating is pressured
by the shift in consumer preference from high margin trucks and
SUVs, and by the need for a new 2007 UAW contract that provides
meaningful relief from high health care costs and burdensome work
rules, Moody's relates.

In June 2007, S&P raised the Issue Rating on Ford's senior secured
credit facilities to B+ from B.


GE CAPITAL: Moody's Junks Class B2 Notes' Rating
------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded three certificates issued by
GE Capital Mortgage Services, Series 1998-HE2.  The underlying
assets in the transaction consists of fixed-rate, first- and
second-lien subprime residential mortgage loans.

The Class M, B1 and B2 certificates of this transaction are being
downgraded based upon recent losses and diminishing credit
enhancement levels relative to the current projected losses on the
underlying pools.

Issuer: GE Capital Mortgage Services Inc., Series 1998-HE2

-- Class M; Downgraded to A1, Previously Aa2;
-- Class B1; Downgraded to B3, Previously Baa2;
-- Class B2; Downgraded to C, Previously Caa3.


GENERAL MOTORS: UAW Talks on VEBA Funding Terms Drag On
-------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corp. and the United Auto Workers union have
temporarily ceased talks yesterday on the creation of a
multibillion-dollar, union-controlled health care trust fund,
known as the Voluntary Employees Beneficiary Association or VEBA,
after the two couldn't agree on how much money GM would provide,
Jeffrey McCraken and John D. Stoll of the Wall Street Journal
report citing people familiar with the talks.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 19, 2007,
GM, Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler LLC are believed to be pushing to
finance the health care fund at no more than 70 cents on the
dollar, which would create a trust fund in excess of $60 billion,
making it one of the largest investment funds in the country.  The
trust fund is expected to cut about $95 billion from the car
makers' retiree costs.

However, a huge gap remains between funding proposed by Detroit's
"big three" automakers and the level discussed by the UAW,
described as "still well into the several-billion-dollars range,"
although GM and UAW have narrowed the gap over the past week.  The
UAW is amenable to creating a trust fund for retiree health-care
benefits as long as all of the parties involved can reach an
agreement on funding terms.

Instead, WSJ sources say, the parties discussed other issues such
as wage cuts for active employees, higher co-pays for active
workers, cutting back on overtime, outsourcing of jobs not on the
assembly line and lower second-tier wages for new hires.

According to contract proposals, new hires would also get lesser
health care benefits than current employees and won't get the
pensions as current workers, WSJ reports.

WSJ relates that the VEBA negotiations may resume over the
weekend.

GS MORTGAGE: S&P Holds Low-B Rating on Six Certificate Classes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its ratings on the class
B and C commercial mortgage pass-through certificates from GS
Mortgage Securities Corp. II's series 2004-GG2.  At the same time,
S&P affirmed its ratings on 19 other classes from this
transaction.
     
The upgrades of the class B and C certificates reflect the
defeasance of $420.1 million (17%) of collateral and increased
credit enhancement due to the principal paydown of $89.3 million
(4%) of the pool.  The affirmed ratings reflect credit enhancement
levels that provide adequate support through various stress
scenarios.
     
As of the Sept. 12, 2007, remittance report, the collateral pool
consisted of 139 loans with an aggregate trust balance of $2.515
billion, down from 141 loans totaling $2.604 billion at issuance.  
The master servicer, Wells Fargo Commercial Mortgage Servicing,
reported financial information for 100% of the nondefeased loans.  
Eighty-nine percent of the servicer-provided information was full-
year 2006 data.  Using this information, Standard & Poor's
calculated a weighted average debt service coverage of 1.60x, up
from 1.57x at issuance.  All of the loans in the pool are current,
and no loans are with the special servicer.  To date, the trust
has experienced one loss totaling $1.1 million.
     
The top 10 exposures secured by real estate have an aggregate
outstanding balance of $961.0 million (38%) and a weighted average
DSC of 1.77x, compared with 1.77x at issuance.  Standard & Poor's
reviewed property inspections provided by the master servicer for
all of the assets underlying the top 10 exposures.  One property
was characterized as "excellent," and the remaining properties
were characterized as "good."
     
Credit characteristics for the Grand Canal Shoppes at the
Venetian, Daily News Building, Garden State Plaza, 111 Eighth
Avenue, and 65 Bleecker Street loans are consistent with those of
investment-grade obligations.  Details of these loans are:

     -- The largest exposure in the pool, the Grand Canal
        Shoppes at the Venetian loan, has a trust balance of
        $180.4 million (7%) and a whole-loan balance of
        $406.1 million.  The whole loan was split into six pari
        passu A notes.  The loan is secured by the fee interest
        and leasehold interests in a 536,890-sq.-ft. retail
        facility located within the Venetian Casino Resort
        Complex in Las Vegas.  For the year ended Dec. 31,
        2006, the DSC was 1.84x and occupancy was 98%. Standard
        & Poor's adjusted net cash flow for this loan is up 11%
        from its level at issuance.

     -- The second-largest exposure in the pool, the Daily News
        Building loan, has a trust balance of $151.8 million
        (6%) and a whole-loan balance of $207.1 million.  In
        addition to the trust collateral, there is a
        $55.2 million B note held outside the trust.  The loan
        is secured by the fee interest in a 39-story,
        1,102,147-sq.-ft. office building in Midtown Manhattan.   
        For the year ended Dec. 31, 2006, the DSC was 2x and
        occupancy was 99%.  Standard & Poor's adjusted NCF for
        this loan is up 4% from its level at issuance.

     -- The third-largest exposure in the pool, the Garden
        State Plaza loan, is secured by 1.5 million sq. ft. of
        a 2 million-sq.-ft. super-regional mall in Paramus,
        New Jersey.  The loan is a $520 million interest-only A
        note that is split into four pari passu pieces,
        $130 million (5%) of which is included in the trust
        balance.  The mall's performance has been stable since
        issuance.  Standard & Poor's adjusted NCF is comparable
        to its level at issuance.  Reported occupancy was 99%
        and DSC was 2.62x as of year-end 2006, compared with
        occupancy of 98% and a DSC of 2.36x at issuance.

     -- The sixth-largest exposure in the pool, the 111 Eighth
        Avenue loan, has a trust balance of $78.6 million (3%)
        and a whole-loan balance of $491.2 million.  The whole
        loan consists of a $441.2 million A note, which is
        participated into four pari passu pieces, and one
        $50 million B note, which is split into two pari passu
        pieces.  One of the subordinate B note pieces secures
        the OEA-B1 and OEA-B2 nonpooled certificates in
        Greenwich Capital Commercial Funding Corp.'s series
        2004-GG1.  S&P affirmed its ratings on these
        certificates on July 27, 2007.  The whole loan is
        secured by the fee interest in a 2,941,646-sq.-ft.
        office property in Manhattan.  For the year ended
        Dec. 31, 2006, the DSC was 3.45x and occupancy was 85%.  
        Standard & Poor's adjusted NCF is comparable to its
        level at issuance.

     -- The 54th largest exposure in the pool, the 65 Bleecker
        street loan, has a balance of $49 million (0.4%).  The
        loan is secured by a 111,690-sq.-ft. office property in
        Manhattan.  For the year ended Dec. 31, 2006, the DSC
        was 2.07x and occupancy was 99%.  Standard & Poor's
        adjusted NCF is up 38% from its level at issuance.
     
Wells Fargo reported a watchlist of eight loans ($63.9 million,
3%), all of which represent less than 1% of the aggregate loan
pool.  These loans are on the watchlist primarily because of low
occupancy or a decline in DSC since issuance.
     
Standard & Poor's stressed the loans on the watchlist and the
other loans with credit issues as part of its analysis.  The
resultant credit enhancement levels support the raised and
affirmed ratings.

of BioLucent at the closing of the acquisition, exclusive of
certain transaction costs and expenses, was approximately
$70 million, of which amount $65 million was paid by Hologic in
shares of Hologic's common stock valued at $54.222 per share and
$5 million was paid in cash.

Additionally, Hologic will be responsible for the payment of up to
two annual deferred cash payments not to exceed $15 million in the
aggregate based upon MammoPad achieving certain revenue targets.  
The value of the Merger Shares was determined based on the average
closing price of Hologic's common stock as quoted on the Nasdaq
Market for the five trading days ending Sept. 14, 2007.

The purchase price is payable in approximately 1,181,777 shares of
Hologic common stock.  The actual number of Merger Shares that
Hologic will issue in the transaction will be subject
to reduction to reflect certain tax withholding obligations.

Additionally, approximately 10% of the shares to be issued will be
held in escrow and subject to forfeiture to satisfy BioLucent
stockholder indemnification obligations, if any.
    
"This acquisition reflects our continued strategy and efforts to
offer a comprehensive portfolio of products to serve in the breast
cancer detection market" Jack Cumming, chairman and chief
executive officer, said.  "The BioLucent MammoPad was designed to
benefit women undergoing mammogramsby providing more comfort, we
believe better tissue acquisition and ultimately improved
outcomes.  It is our hope with proper training and support, the
MammoPad can become a standard of care in mammography.  We look
forward to the opportunities that will develop from this
combination as we continue to build value for our shareholders."
    
Prior to the acquisition, BioLucent completed the spin-off its
brachytherapy technology and business to the holders of
BioLucent's outstanding shares of capital stock.  The new company,
Cianna Medical will manufacture and market the SAVI(TM)
applicator.  As a result Hologic acquired BioLucent's Mammopad(R)
business and related assets.
    
"We are pleased we have finalized this agreement with Hologic,"
Steven Gex, president and CEO of Biolucent Inc., said.  "We
believe Hologic's experience and ability to work with partners to
drive the adoption of value- added products in the sales channel
will serve as the perfect compliment to our MammoPad(R) breast
cushion."

markets and sells a breast cushion, MammoPad(R), to decrease the

HUISH DETERGENTS: High Debt Leverage Cues S&P's Neg. Outlook
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on Salt
Lake City, Utah-based Huish Detergents Inc. to negative from
stable.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed all of its
ratings on the company, including the 'B' corporate credit
rating.
     
"The outlook revision is based on the company's higher-than-
expected debt leverage resulting from higher raw material cost and
softer sales at key retailers," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Patrick Jeffrey.  Debt leverage is trending in the low-7x
area through June 30, 2007, compared with the mid-6x area expected
for the rating.  The ratings could be lowered over the near to
intermediate term if these trends continue to negatively impact
Huish's operating performance and the company is unable to reduce
leverage closer to our prior expectations.
     
The ratings on Huish reflect its highly leveraged pro forma
capital structure, narrow product focus, limited geographic
diversity, and its participation in the mature and highly
competitive U.S. detergent segment of the consumer products
industry.  These risks are mitigated somewhat by leading market
positions in the private-label and value segments of the U.S.
detergent industry.


INDYMAC BANCORP: Poor Financial Metrics Cue Moody's Ratings Cut
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Indymac Bancorp Inc.'s issuer
rating to Ba1 from Baa3 and its thrift subsidiary, Indymac Bank,
F.S.B.'s bank financial strength rating to D+ from C- and long
term deposit rating to Baa3 from Baa2.  The thrift's short-term
deposit rating was downgraded from P-2 to P-3.  Moody's stated
that Indymac's ratings remain under review for possible downgrade.

Moody's said that the downgrade reflected the decline in Indymac's
financial metrics and franchise strength caused by the current
mortgage sector conditions.  Indymac is a mono-line mortgage bank
focusing on broker originated Alt-A product, most of which was
sold as opposed to held on balance sheet.  The secondary market is
essentially shut for this mortgage product severely reducing gain
on sale income and resulting in write-downs of the thrift's non-
agency held-for-sale inventory. Additionally, the broker
origination channel has suffered a significant decline in
capacity; Indymac's ability to return to historic origination
levels is unclear.

The review for possible downgrade reflects the risk that if
mortgage sector liquidity issues continue, additional large
mortgage-backed securities and held-for-sale inventory write-downs
may be required.  Additionally, Indymac faces a long-term
challenge to restore profitability to historical levels while
altering its origination channel to a higher weighting of retail
and expanding its product mix to reduce reliance on the Alt-A
product.  Although Indymac has been able to shift its product to
primarily agency eligible product, the long term profitability of
being an agency-only originator would be lower than its historic
levels.

Moody's noted that the thrift has strengthened its liquidity
position in this challenging period by focusing its funding on
deposits and Federal Home Loan Bank advances.  Indymac's current
short term wholesale funding is less than its unutilized capacity
at the FHLB.  Moody's does not see any liquidity issues at the
holding company.

Affirming the company at its current ratings would require the
thrift minimizing the risk that its non-agency available for sale
mortgage product could be written-down substantially and settling
on a product mix and origination channel strategy that would
return it to historic levels of profitability.  Further upward
ratings pressure could result from improvement in market share and
sustainability and a reduction in earnings volatility through
product diversity and less reliance on gain on sale income.

The ratings of Indymac would likely be downgraded due to
significant write-downs of its mortgage securities and loan
inventory, a disruption in deposit taking activities and an
inability to either execute its historical business model
profitably or transition to a profitable model.

   -- the 321-room Hilton Seelbach Louisville in Kentucky;
   -- the 226-room Crowne Plaza Madison in Wisconsin; and

properties will continue to be managed by Interstate under new
management agreements.

transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter.

both for our own account and in joint venture partnerships,"
Thomas F. Hewitt, Interstate's chief executive officer, said.
"This transaction is an illustration of our successful execution
of our growth strategy.  We remain opportunistic in our
acquisition strategy and maintain flexibility to structure
transactions within dynamic markets."
    
"These three, geographically diverse properties are located in key
urban, airport and major suburban markets," said Leslie Ng, chief
investment officer.  "All of the properties are strong performers
with steadily improving RevPAR and income and have significant
further upside potential.  This is our first venture with
Investcorp, one of the world's largest and most diverse
alternative investment managers, and we look forward to exploring
additional opportunities with them."
    
"The acquisition of these hotels is consistent with our
multi-disciplinary focus of aggressively pursuing opportunities
across product platforms and geographies to deliver strong cash
flows and above average returns to our global clients," said John
Fraser, co-head, Investcorp Real Estate Group.  "Interstate has
been successfully managing these properties and is thoroughly
familiar with the individual markets.  Given Interstate's solid
track-history, expertise and proprietary
management systems, we are very confident in its ability to drive

KELLWOOD CO: Board to Review Sun Capital's Acquisition Bid
----------------------------------------------------------
Kellwood Company said Tuesday that it has received an unsolicited
letter from Sun Capital Securities Group LLC indicating Sun
Capital's interest in pursuing an acquisition of all of Kellwood's
outstanding shares at a price of $21 in cash per share.  The Sun
Capital proposal, contained in a letter dated Sept. 18, 2007,
is subject to a number of conditions, including completion of due
diligence.

The company said its Board of Directors will carefully evaluate
the Sun Capital proposal, and other alternatives available to the
company, taking into account the potential benefits that may be
realized through the company's previously announced long-term
strategic plan.

Early this month, Kellwood reorganized its women's sportswear
business creating three operating divisions from seven.  The move
reduced the total number of operating divisions for all of the
company's business segments from 12 to eight.
    
Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Kellwood Company (NYSE: KWD)

KELLWOOD CO:  Sun Capital's Proposal Cues S&P's Negative Watch
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings on St.
Louis, Misourri-based women's apparel designer and marketer
Kellwood Co., including its 'BB' long-term corporate credit
rating, on CreditWatch with negative implications.
     
The CreditWatch placement follows Kellwood's announcement that it
received a nonbinding, unsolicited proposal from Sun Capital
Securities Group LLC indicating interest in acquiring all of
Kellwood's outstanding shares at $21.00 per share.
     
"While the terms of the proposal were undisclosed, we believe that
if the transaction were to be consummated, significant debt would
be added to the company's already leveraged balance sheet," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Susan Ding.
     
Standard & Poor's will closely monitor developments as they arise.  
"Resolution of the CreditWatch will depend on the outcome of the
above offer, any subsequent proposal, and our review of the
company's operating trends and financial condition," said Ms.
Ding.

MERITAGE MORTGAGE: Moody's Lowers Class M6 Certs.' Rating to B3
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the rating of one certificate
from Meritage Mortgage Loan Trust, Series 2003-1. The transaction
is backed by primarily first lien adjustable- and fixed-rate
subprime mortgage loans originated by Meritage Mortgage
Corporation.

The certificate has been downgraded because existing credit
enhancement levels may be low given the current projected losses
on the underlying pools.  Overcollateralization has declined due
to losses and the transaction has stepped down, causing the
subordinated certificates to start receiving their share of
unscheduled prepayments.  In addition, the severity of loss on
liquidated loans has begun to increase.

Complete rating action is:

Issuer: Meritage Mortgage Loan Trust 2003-1

Downgrade:

-- Series 2003-1; Class M6, downgraded to B3 from Baa3.

MIGENIX INC: Posts CDN$3.1 Million Net Loss in Qtr. Ended July 31
-----------------------------------------------------------------
MIGENIX Inc. incurred a net loss of CDN$3.1 million for the first
quarter ended July 31, 2007, compared to a net loss of
CDN$2.5 million for the same period ended July 31, 2006.  

The increase in the net loss is principally attributable to a
CDN$400,000 increase in research and development expenses, a
CDN$200,000 increase in general and corporate expenses, and a
CDN$100,000 increase in the accretion of the convertible royalty
participation units, less a CDN$100,000 decrease in amortization
expense.

At July 31, 2007, the company's consolidated balance sheet showed
CDN$16.6 million in total assets, CDN$6.8 million in total
liabilities, and CDN$9.8 million in total stockholders' equity.

Full-text copies of the company's consolidated financial
statements for the quarter ended July 31, 2007, are available for
free at http://researcharchives.com/t/s?2398

                 Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of July 31, 2007, the company had cash, cash equivalents and
short-term investments of $12.8 million and the company's net
working capital was $12.1 million, compared to $14.6 million at
April 30, 2007.  MIGENIX believes that its funds on hand at
July 31, 2007, together with ongoing cost containment measures and
expected interest income, are sufficient to provide for operations
into the third quarter of calendar 2008 before funds received, if
any, from existing or new license agreements, the exercise of
warrants and options and future financing activities.

                       Going Concern Doubt

MIGENIX Inc. reports in its consolidated financial statements for
the first quarter ended July 31, 2007, that the company has
incurred significant losses since inception and has financed its
cash requirements primarily from equity financings and payments
from licensing agreements.  The company believes that these
conditions raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue
as a going concern.

MORGAN STANLEY: Fitch Junks Rating on $852,190 Class N Certs.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded Morgan Stanley Capital I Inc.'s
commercial mortgage pass-through certificates, series 1999-CAM1
as:

  -- $852,190 class N to 'C/DR6' from 'CC/DR4'.

Fitch has also assigned a Distressed Recovery rating to this
class:

  -- $6 million class M at 'B-/DR1'.

In addition, Fitch has affirmed these classes:

  -- $82.5 million class A-4 at 'AAA';
  -- Interest only class X at 'AAA';
  -- $26.2 million class B at 'AAA';
  -- $26.2 million class C at 'AAA';
  -- $12.1 million class D at 'AAA';
  -- $20.2 million class E at 'AAA';
  -- $8.1 million class F at 'AAA';
  -- $14.1 million class G at 'AA+';
  -- $14.1 million class H at 'A+';
  -- $6 million class J at 'BBB+';
  -- $8.1 million class K at 'BBB-'.
  -- $6 million class L at 'BB-'.

Classes A-1, A-2, and A-3 have paid in full.

The downgrade and assignment of the Distressed Recovery rating is
a result of realized losses which were higher than expected at
Fitch's last rating action. The assignment of the Distressed
Recovery rating to class M is due to reduced credit enhancement
resulting from realized losses.

As of the September 2007 distribution date, the transaction's
aggregate principal balance has been reduced 71% to $230.6 million
from $806.5 million at issuance.  The pool remains geographically
diverse with the largest concentration of properties (20%) in
California.

Five loans (10.8%) have been identified as Fitch loans of concern
due to declines in occupancy and performance, including two (7.9%)
of the top five loans in the deal.  There are currently no
delinquent or specially serviced loans.

provide funds in order for its operations to continue, Brian
Bandell of South Florida Business Journal reports.

investors who had provided around $192 million in loans to return
about 1% of their investments.  Mr. Goldberg replaced Dana Berman
as head after the company missed its February interest payments.

Citing a separate letter from Mr. Berman, Mr. Bandell relates that
without additional financing, the company could be forced to shut
down.

R.J. GATORS: Court OKs Sale of Business to J&D for $1.85 Mil.
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida has
approved the sale of R.J. Gators Inc. to J&D Restaurant Holdings
LLC for about $1.85 million, a Palm Beach Post staff writer
reports.

According to the report, J&D, a partnership of local businessmen
Timothy Jeffrey and Kevin Dalton, was a dark-horse bidder for the
nine-restaurant chain.

Meanwhile, nine franchisees raised questions about the Debtor's
operations, contending that Gators kept collecting money for ads
but there has been little or no advertising, and Gators barred
requests for an accounting of the ad dollars, the source said.

The group's lawyer argued that the franchisees learned about the
company's bankruptcy through the newspaper, and about the sale
through word of mouth.

Headquartered in Jupiter, Florida, R.J. Gators Inc. --
http://www.rjgators.com/-- owns and operates casual dining   
restaurants.  The company and nine affiliates filed for chapter 11
protection on June 26, 2007 (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case Nos. 07-14954
to 07-14693).  Bradley S. Shraiberg, Esq. at Kluger, Peretz,
Kaplan & Berlin, P.L. represents the Debtors in their
restructuring efforts.  When the Debtors filed for bankruptcy,
they listed assets and debts between $1 million to $100 million.  
The Debtors' exclusive period to file a chapter 11 plan of
reorganization expires on Oct. 24, 2007.


REPERFORMING LOAN: Poor Performance Cues S&P to Lower Ratings
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on five
classes of asset-backed securities issued by Reperforming Loan
REMIC Trust's series 2002-2, 2003-R1, and 2003-R3.  At the same
time, S&P affirmed its ratings on 50 other classes from various
Reperforming Loan REMIC Trust transactions.
     
The lowered ratings on classes 1B-2 and 1B-3 from series 2002-2
reflect poor collateral performance and increased losses.  As of
the Aug. 25, 2007, distribution date, total current realized
collateral losses for the period were $103,968.51, which
represents a 12.94% increase from six months ago and a 79.11%
increase from a year ago.  Cumulative realized losses are
currently $7,086,517.01.  This represents a 5.9% increase from six
months ago and a 78.28% increase from 12 months ago.
     
As of the August 2007 remittance period, severely delinquent loans
for series 2002-2 were 14.44% for structure group 1 and 10.90% for
structure group 2.  Cumulative realized losses for group 1 totaled
$6.94 million, or 0.52% of the original pool balance, an 8.33%
increase over the cumulative losses experienced six months ago and
a 79.31% increase from one year ago.  Cumulative losses for group
2 totaled $138,740, or 0.14% of the original pool balance, a
16.66% increase over the cumulative losses experienced six months
ago and a 75% increase from one year ago.
     
The lowered ratings on classes 1B-3 and 1B-4 from series 2003-R1
reflect the continued erosion of the collateral's performance and
increased losses.  As of the Aug. 25, 2007, distribution date,
total current realized collateral losses were $51,810.09 for the
period, which represents a 4.31% increase from six months ago and
a 197.38% increase from a year ago.  Cumulative realized losses
are currently $7,130,420.  This represents a 6.76% increase from
six months ago and a 104.76% increase from 12 months ago.

     
As of the August 2007 remittance period, severely delinquent loans
for series 2003-R1 were 15.68% for structure group 1 and 12.50%
for structure group 2.  Cumulative realized losses for group 1
totaled $7.01 million, or 0.58% of the original pool balance, a
5.45% increase over the cumulative losses experienced six months
ago and a 100.00% increase from one year ago.  Cumulative realized
losses for group 2 totaled $116,567, or 0.13% of the original pool
balance, an 18.18% increase over the cumulative losses experienced
six months ago and more than a 100% increase from one year ago.
     
The downgrade of class B-4 from series 2003-R3 reflects poor
collateral performance and delinquencies that have continued to
result in losses, which have led to actual and projected credit
support levels that no longer support the prior rating on class B-
4.
     
As of the Aug. 25, 2007, distribution date, total current realized
collateral losses for the period were $14,074.32.  Cumulative
realized losses are currently $2,757,373, which represents a
15.22% increase from six months ago and a 22.75% increase from 12
months ago.
     
S&P will continue to closely monitor these transactions.  If
delinquencies continue to translate into realized losses, S&P will
likely take further negative rating actions.
     
The affirmations are based on credit support percentages that are
sufficient to maintain the current ratings.  These transactions
benefit from credit enhancement provided by subordination.
     
The collateral for these transactions originally consisted of
fully amortizing mortgage loans secured by first liens on one- to
four-family residential properties.  The loans were FHA insured
and partially guaranteed by the VA or the Rural Housing Service.

Rating affirmed, subject to be withdrawn at closing:

R.H. Donnelley Inc.

-- 10.875% senior subordinated notes due 2012

The rating outlook is stable.

The ratings reflect the company's high leverage (about 7 times
debt to EBITDA at closing), the risk of further acquisition
activity, the limited growth prospects of the directory publishing
business, the increasing threat posed by competing directory
publishers and web-based directory service providers in virtually
all Donnelley's markets, and the recent decline experienced by the
company's print product sales.

However, the ratings are supported by Donnelley's scale, the
strong market position conferred by its exclusive publishing
agreements with Embarq Corporation, Qwest Communications, and AT&T
Inc. as the "official" yellow pages directory within a number of
their incumbent markets.  In addition the ratings reflect
Donnelley's very good liquidity profile, its diversified customer
and geographic market base; and its strong cash flow generation
which provides the opportunity for significant debt and leverage
reduction, absent further acquisitions or the payment of
dividends.

The stable outlook incorporates the relative predictability of
R.H. Donnelley's revenues and the resilience of the yellow page
publishing segment to economic downturns.

The upgrade of the senior unsecured and senior subordinated debt
ratings of Dex Media Inc, Dex Media East and Dex Media West
results largely from the incremental cushion provided by the
increase in more junior- ranked debt at R.H. Donnelley
Corporation.

Donnelley plans to use the proceeds of the proposed senior
unsecured notes to fully redeem R.H. Donnelley Inc.'s
$600 million senior subordinated notes, R.H. Donnelley Corp.'s
unrated $328 million senior unsecured credit facility, as well as
pay redemption premiums and other transaction expenses.

Headquartered in Cary, North Carolina, R.H. Donnelley is one of
the largest US yellow page directory publishing companies.  The
company reported revenues of $2.5 billion for the LTM period ended
June 30, 2007.


RH DONNELLEY: S&P Rates Proposed $650 Million Senior Notes at B
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' rating to R.H.
Donnelley Corp.'s proposed $650 million senior notes due 2017.  
The notes will be sold privately under Rule 144A of the Securities
Act of 1933, and will include registration rights.  Proceeds from
this issue will be used to repay RHD's existing $600 million
senior subordinated notes due 2012, and to fund related fees and
expenses.
     
The corporate credit rating on RHD is 'BB-', and the rating
outlook is stable.  This rating reflects substantial consolidated
debt levels due to major acquisitions over the past several years.  
This is somewhat mitigated by the company's incumbent market
positions, predictable sales and cash flow generation, and
geographic and customer diversity.       

Notwithstanding recent revisions to the company's advertising
sales guidance (it now expects 2007 advertising sales growth to be
flat to negative 1%, excluding the impact of the recent
acquisition of Business.com), management is affirming its 2007
EBITDA and free cash flow guidance from its
second-quarter earnings call (July 26, 2007).
      
"Given the minimal forecasted decline in sales growth and our
expectations for continued solid EBITDA generation, we expect
credit measures to remain in line with the current rating," noted
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Emile Courtney.

ROGERS COMMS: Posts $56 Million Net Loss in Quarter Ended June 30
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Rogers Communications Inc. reported a net loss of $56.0 million in
the second quarter ended June 30, 2007, compared to net income of
$279.0 million for the same period last year.  Operating profit
was $431.0 million, down from $744.0 million reported in the same
period last year.

The decrease in operating income compared to the corresponding
period of the prior year is primarily due to the one-time pre-tax
charge of $452.0 million as a result of the introduction of a cash
settlement feature for employee stock options in the second
quarter.  Excluding this one-time charge, and excluding
integration and restructuring costs, operating income was
$500.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007, compared
to $351.0 million in the corresponding period of 2006.

Operating revenue rose to $2.53 billion for the quarter ended
June 30, 2007, from $2.18 billion in the 2006 quarter.

"This was a quarter in which we delivered solid growth, greatly
simplified our corporate structure and laid the groundwork for
returning increasing amounts of cash to our shareholders," said
Ted Rogers, president and chief executive officer of Rogers
Communications Inc.  "While we have much to do in continuing to
reinforce our services, I am confident that we are exceptionally
well positioned to carry on our growth and success in the rapidly
changing and highly competitive Canadian telecom, cable and media
sectors."

                  Depreciation and Amortization

Depreciation and amortization expense was $398.0 million in the
three months ended June 30, 2007, compared to $395.0 million in
the same period last year.  The increase primarily reflects the
depreciation on property, plant and equipment additions.

                Interest Expense on Long-term Debt

Interest expense on long-term debt decreased to $152.0 million for
the three months ended June 30, 2007, compared to $155.0 million
in the corresponding period in 2006.  The decrease in interest
expense is primarily due to the $491.0 million decrease in debt as
at June 30, 2007, compared to June 30, 2006, including the impact
of cross-currency interest rate exchange agreements.

                          Balance Sheet

The company reported that as of June 30, 2007, it had
$14.81 billion in total assets, $10.63 billion in total
liabilities, and $4.18 billion in total stockholders' equity.

The company's consolidated balance sheet at June 30, 2007, also
showed strained liquidity with $2.09 billion in total current
assets available to pay $2.22 billion in total current
liabilities.

                  Cash Generated from Operations

For the three months ended June 30, 2007, cash generated from
operations before changes in non-cash operating items, increased
to $786.0 million from $632.0 million in the corresponding period
of 2006.  The $154.0 million increase is primarily the result of a
$152.0 million increase in operating profit, as adjusted, and a
$3.0 million decrease in interest expense, partially offset by a
$13.0 million increase in integration and restructuring costs.

Taking into account the changes in non-cash working capital items
for the three months ended June 30, 2007, cash generated from
operations was $589.0 million, compared to $491.0 million in the
corresponding period of 2006.

The cash flow generated from operations of $589.0 million,
together with $858.0 million aggregate net advances drawn under
the company's bank credit facilities and the receipt of
$11.0 million from the issuance of Class B Non-Voting shares under
the exercise of employee stock options, resulted in total net
funds of approximately $1.46 billion raised in the three months
ended June 30, 2007.

RURAL/METRO CORP: Liquidity Concerns Cue S&P to Revise Outlook
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
Scottsdale, Arizona-based medical transport services provider
Rural/Metro Corp. to negative from stable.  S&P also affirmed the
ratings on Rural/Metro, including the 'B' corporate credit
rating.  The outlook revision reflects S&P's increased concern
with the company's limited liquidity.  In particular, S&P are
concerned with tight financial covenants under the senior secured
credit agreement, specifically the maximum leverage ratio step-
down to 4.5x on Dec. 31, 2007.
     
"The ratings on Rural/Metro reflect the company's exposure to the
ongoing uncertainty of government reimbursement rates, its
relatively thin operating margins, high levels of bad debt, and
concerns about the sustainability of price increases from its
commercial payors," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Rivka
Gertzulin.  "These issues are only partially mitigated by the
company's diverse and long-standing client list, and its
willingness to repay debt."
     
Rural/Metro's financial risk profile is in line with the 'B'
rating, predominantly because of the company's substantial debt
obligation.  Total lease-adjusted debt to EBITDA is about 5x, and
EBITDA interest coverage (including noncash interest on
$50 million, aggregate principal amount of pay-in-kind debt) is
between 1.5x and 2x.  Although the company's noncash interest
provides some flexibility, S&P remain concerned about this
fast-growing obligation and Rural/Metro's ability to offset the
liability with future operating improvements.


SCO GROUP: Organizational Meeting Scheduled on September 28
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region 3 will hold an organizational meeting
to appoint an official committee of unsecured creditors in The SCO
Group, Inc. and its debtor-affiliates' chapter 11 cases at 10:00
a.m., on Sept. 28, 2007, at Room 2112, J. Caleb Boggs Federal
Building, 844 North King Street, in Wilmington, Delaware.

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' cases.  The
meeting is not the meeting of creditors pursuant to Section 341
of the Bankruptcy Code.  However, a representative of the Debtor
will attend and provide background information regarding the
cases.

Creditors interested in serving on a Committee should complete
and return to the U.S. Trustee a statement indicating their
willingness to serve on an official committee.

Official creditors' committees, constituted under Section 1102 of
the Bankruptcy Code, ordinarily consist of the seven largest
creditors who are willing to serve on a committee.  In some
Chapter 11 cases, the U.S. Trustee is persuaded to appoint
multiple creditors' committees.

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

SCO GROUP: Bankruptcy Filing Prompts Nasdaq to Delist Securities
----------------------------------------------------------------
The SCO Group Inc. has received a notice from The Nasdaq Stock
Market indicating that the company's securities will be
delisted from Nasdaq on Sept. 27, 2007, pending an appeal.
    
The Nasdaq Staff Determination Letter received on Sept. 18, 2007,

under Nasdaq Marketplace Rules 4300 and IM-4300, that the
company's securities will be delisted from The Nasdaq Stock Market

be suspended unless the company requests a hearing to review the
determination.

The suspension of the company's common stock is set to occur

will stay the suspension of the trading of the company's
securities pending a panel decision by a Nasdaq Listing
Qualifications Panel.

The company intends to request a hearing to review the
determination.  There can be no assurance that the panel will
grant the company's request for continued listing.

SCO GROUP: Posts $2.4 Million Net Loss in Quarter Ended July 31
---------------------------------------------------------------
The SCO Group Inc. incurred a net loss of $2.4 million in the
third quarter ended July 31, 2007, compared to a net loss of
$3.6 million in the same period ended July 31, 2006.  Revenue for
the third quarter of fiscal year 2007 was $3.7 million, down from
$6.2 million for the comparable quarter of the prior year.

The decrease in revenue was primarily attributable to continued to
a continued decline in the company's UNIX business as a result of
continued competitive pressure from competing operating systems,
particularly Linux, and from continuing negative publicity from
the SCO Litigation which has adversely impacted and delayed  
customers' buying decisions.

Legal and related costs incurred in connection with the company's
litigation were $1.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal year
2007, which was down from costs of $2.3 million for the comparable
quarter of the prior year.  The decrease in legal and related
costs was primarily attributable to decreased legal services
provided by technical, industry, damage and other experts in
connection with the SCO Litigation.  Because of the unique and
unpredictable nature of the SCO Litigation, the occurrence and
timing of certain expenses such as damage, industry and technical
review and other consultants is difficult to predict, and it will
be difficult to predict for the upcoming quarters.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $7,393,000 as of July 31, 2007.
During this same time period, investment in available-for-sale
marketable securities decreased from $2,249,000 as of October 31,
2006 to $0 as of July 31, 2007.  As of July 31, 2007, the company
also had $3,020,000 of restricted cash, of which $2,589,000 is set
aside to cover expert and other costs related to the SCO
Litigation and $431,000 is set aside for royalties payable to
Novell.

At July 31, 2007, the company's consolidated balance sheet showed
$15.8 million in total assets, $10.3 million in total liabilities,
and $5.5 million in total stockholders' equity.

               Novell Ruling and Bankruptcy Filing

On Aug. 10, 2007, the federal judge overseeing the company's
lawsuit with Novell Inc. ruled in favor of Novell on several of
the summary judgment motions that were before the United States
District Court in Utah.  The effect of these rulings was to
significantly reduce or to eliminate certain of the company's
claims in both the Novell and IBM cases, and possibly others.  The
court ruled that Novell was the owner of the UNIX and UnixWare
copyrights that existed at the time of the 1995 Asset Purchase
Agreement and that Novell retained broad rights to waive the
company's contract claims against IBM.  

The company was directed to accept Novell's waiver of its UNIX
contract claims against IBM. In addition, the court determined
that certain SCOsource licensing agreements that the company
executed in fiscal year 2003 included SVRx technology and that the
company was required to remit some portion of the proceeds to
Novell.  Over the company's objection, a bench trial was set to
begin on Sept. 17, 2007, and the federal judge was to determine
what portion, if any, of the proceeds of the fiscal year 2003
SCOsource agreements is attributable to SVRx technology and should
be remitted to Novell.  The trial of these issues, however, was
stayed as a result of the company's filing a voluntary petition
for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code on Sept. 14,
2007.  

The company intends to maintain business operations throughout the
bankruptcy case.  Subject to the bankruptcy court's approval, the
company will use its cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and
subsequent cash inflows to meet its working capital needs
throughout the reorganization process.

SOUTHEAST BANKING: Jeffrey Beck Appointed as Chapter 11 Trustee
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region appointed Jeffrey H. Beck as the
chapter 11 trustee in Southeast Banking Corporation's bankruptcy
proceedings.  The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District
of Florida converted the Debtor's case to a proceeding under
chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code from a chapter 7liquidation on
Sept. 17, 2007.

Mr. Beck was also the Debtor's chapter 7 trustee appointed on
April 1, 1998.

                       Case Conversion

Mr. Becker, in his capacity as chapter 7 trustee, informed the
Court that the purpose of the conversion was:

    * to propose and confirm a Chapter 11 plan that would attract
      infusion of equity;

    * to continue the Debtor's existence in the financial services
      industry;

    * to allow the Debtor to utilize certain of its remaining
      assets; and

    * create a modest amount of additional value for bondholders,
      creditors, and holders of the Debtor's preferred and common
      stock.


Mr. Beck discloses that a qualified institutional investor has
expressed interest in making a significant equity infusion in the
Debtor through a Chapter 11 Plan.  Mr. Beck further says that he
entered into a non-binding term sheet with the prospective
investor on a confidential basis.

                         Need for Equity Infusion

Mr. Beck relates that although all prepetition claims of creditors
have been paid in full, post-petition interest of more than
$130 million have accrued.  Mr. Beck disclosed that $50 million of
that amount however has already been paid.  Also, the Debtor's
remaining tangible asset consists of land holdings in
Jacksonville, Florida.

Mr. Beck argued that through the proposed equity infusion, the
estate may be able to generate modest additional value for
bondholders and other creditors to additional payments with
respect to the post-petition interest.

SUNCOM WIRELESS: Inks $2.4 Billion Merger Pact with T-Mobile
------------------------------------------------------------
T-Mobile USA Inc. and SunCom Wireless Holdings Inc. entered into a
definitive merger agreement for the acquisition by T-Mobile USA of
all of the outstanding shares of common stock of SunCom, for an
aggregate of about $2.4 billion in cash and assumed debt.

This includes cash payment of about $1.6 billion and $0.8 billion
net debt.

The acquisition will further enhance T-Mobile's network coverage
in the southeastern United States and the Caribbean through the
complementary addition of SunCom's markets and customers in North
Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Puerto Rico and the
U.S. Virgin Islands.  

After the closing of the transaction, T-Mobile USA expects to
fully integrate SunCom's assets into the T-Mobile network.  
T-Mobile is will provide SunCom customers with a smooth transition
to T-Mobile's quality, innovative wireless services and products,
such as its popular myFaves SM offering; its geographic reach on
its wireless network, and its customer service.

"With the acquisition of SunCom, we will continue to implement our
strategy to 'grow abroad with mobile', which is part of our
overall group strategy," Rene Obermann, chairman of the board of
management of Deutsche Telekom, said.

"At the same time we can realize significant synergies on the cost
side and improve our market presence.  As a result, this
acquisition will fit very well with our strategy to grow abroad
with mobile primarily within our current footprint within the
context of market consolidation."

"The strategic fit of the SunCom operations will make this a near-
perfect acquisition," Robert Dotson, president and chief executive
officer of T-Mobile USA, said.  "It will round out our domestic
footprint, allowing us to serve 98 of the top 100 markets, and
will significantly benefit our financial position by reducing
roaming expense.  Furthermore, it will add a talented group of
employees that will enable us to serve more than one million new
SunCom customers with industry-leading national products and
services available under the T-Mobile brand."

By agreeing to acquire SunCom, T-Mobile USA expects to expand its
own nationwide coverage, excluding roaming, from 244 million PoPs
to 259 million PoPs.  T-Mobile USA also expects to realize
synergies with a net present value of about $1 billion through
reduced roaming and operating expenses.  Plus, the company
anticipates further upside growth opportunities through the
addition of the new markets.

"We are extremely pleased to be combining with T-Mobile USA, a
customer-focused, nationwide provider of wireless services, with
whom we have been a long-time roaming partner," Michael E.
Kalogris, chairman and chief executive officer of SunCom,said.
"This transaction is a testament to all that SunCom has achieved -
transforming this company through our financial and operational
restructuring into the growing, profitable business it is today,
while offering customers exceptional service and products.  We
look forward to building on this momentum as part of T-Mobile
USA."

Certain investment funds affiliated with Highland Capital
Management L.P. and Pardus Capital Management, who together own
more than 50% of SunCom's issued common stock, have committed to
vote in favor of the transaction.

Under the terms of the agreement, approved by the boards of both
companies, holders of SunCom common stock will receive $27 per
share in cash.  Including net debt as of June 30, 2007, the total
transaction value is about $2.4 billion.  The $27 per share
purchase price represents a premium of 22.7% over the closing
price of SunCom common stock on the New York Stock Exchange on
Friday, Sept. 14.  

The acquisition, which is subject to governmental and regulatory
approvals, approval by SunCom shareholders and other customary
closing conditions, is expected to close in the first half of
2008.

TARPON INDUSTRIES: Canadian Unit Files for Bankruptcy Under BIA
---------------------------------------------------------------
Tarpon Industries Inc. disclosed that its Steelbank subsidiary in
Canada has filed a Notice of Intention to make a Proposal pursuant
to the Bankruptcy & Insolvency Act.  A. Farber & Partners Inc. is
the Proposal Trustee and has also been appointed as Interim
Receiver by the Ontario superior Court of Justice for the purpose
of conducting a sale or liquidation of its Steelbank subsidiary.

Steelbank, based in Mississauga, Ontario, produces mechanical and
structural steel tubing.  Steelbank has experienced declining
sales and operating losses.  For 2006 and the first 6 months of
2007, Steelbank had operating losses of approximately $5,590,000
as contrasted with EWCO/Spacerak, Tarpon's other operations, which
had approximately $1,700,000 of operating profits for such period.  
Tarpon expects that a sale or liquidation of Steelbank can resolve
a significant portion of Steelbank's debt and allow Tarpon to
focus on its promising U.S. operations.

"The sale or liquidation of Steelbank is a difficult but necessary
action for our company," James W. Bradshaw, CEO of Tarpon, said.  
"Sluggish Canadian sales and an unattractive exchange rate created
growing losses in a challenging market environment and have been
ongoing at Steelbank for some time.  After much deliberation, we
determined that we had to stem the losses and stop the funding of
a subsidiary whose performance was not improving.

"This action will now allow us to focus our capital and human
resources on continuing to implement our growth strategies at
SpaceRak, Tarpon's engineered steel racking systems.  Over the
past year we have expanded our market penetration and greatly
improved our manufacturing processes.  We are pleased with the
growth of national accounts like Target for whom we supplied rack
products to 61 stores in July.  With firmer financial foundation
and focused company commitment, I believe our market share can
increase, and we can take important steps in growing a thriving
enterprise for our employees, our customers and our shareholders."

Headquartered in Marysville, Michigan, Tarpon Industries Inc.
(AMEX: TPO) -- http://www.tarponind.com/-- through its wholly

The auditor pointed to the company's sustained recurring net
losses since its inception, negative working capital, and default
of its principle loan agreements due to its violation of specific
financial and non-financial debt covenants.

VITALTRUST BUSINESS: Posts $31.7 Mil. Net Loss in Second Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------------
VitalTrust Business Development Corp. reported a net decrease in
net assets resulting from operations of $31.7 million in the three
months ended June 30, 2007, compared to a $217,998 net decrease in
net assets resulting from operations reported in the same period
last year, mainly due to unrealized depreciation on investments of
$29.6 million.

There were no dividends or interest income on investments for the
three months ended June 30, 2007, and 2006, respectively.

Total investment expenses for the three months ended June 30,
2007, and 2006 was $2.1 million and $209,685 respectively.  
The increase was primarily attributable to a loss on debt
restructuring of $1.9 million in connection with the settlement of
the debentures and unsecured promissory notes.

Unrealized depreciation on investments for the three months ended
June 30, 2007, and 2006 was $29.6 million and $8,313,
respectively.  The increase in unrealized depreciation on
investments was primarily due to the decrease in the traded market
price of the portfolio of publicly traded investments acquired
during the first quarter of 2007.

                         Roder Litigation

On March 22, 2005, a civil suit was filed in Orange County Circuit
Court, Orlando, Florida against the former chief executive officer
of the company, Walter H. Roder II.  Counterclaims were filed by
Mr. Roder and related entities alleging non-payment of purported
obligations which the company believed to be without merit.  On
March 5-6, 2007, the Orange County Circuit Court declined to grant
reconsideration of a summary judgment, and also entered a separate
final judgment, against the company in the aggregate amount of
$1,307,685.  The company appealed to the Fifth District Court of
Appeal in Daytona Beach, Florida on March 7, 2007, and the
appellate court entered a March 22, 2007, Order of Referral to
Mediation.  

During May 2007, the company's chief operating officer reached an
agreement with Mr. Roder, subject to mutual legal review and final
board approval wherein Mr. Roder is to receive approximately
$850,000 in cash over a seven month period as well as $750,000 of
the company's common stock valued at $0.50 per share.  Since a
definitive settlement agreement has not yet been executed, the
company has continued its position of not accruing any loss in
connection with this litigation in its financial statements.

company's recurring losses, negative cash flows from operations,

WHITEHALL JEWELERS: Posts $18.3 Mil. Net Loss in Qtr. Ended Aug. 4
------------------------------------------------------------------
Whitehall Jewelers Holdings Inc., formerly known as BTHC VII Inc.,
disclosed Tuesday its results for the second fiscal quarter ended
Aug. 4, 2007.

The company reported an $18.3 million net loss for the second
quarter of fiscal 2007.  This was greater than a net loss of
$12.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2006.

The net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2006 consists of a
$5.0 million net loss for the predecessor in its 2006 merger for
the period of May 1, 2006, through June 8, 2006, and a
$7.8 million net loss for the successor in its 2006 merger for the
period of June 9, 2006, and July 31, 2006.  

Comparable store sales for the second quarter of fiscal year 2007
decreased 0.9% compared to a decrease of 9.7% in the equivalent
period last year.  Net sales decreased 4.9% to $52.5 million from
$55.2 million for the equivalent period last year. The comparable
store sales decrease was the result of a decrease of 10.7% in
average selling price, substantially offset by an 11.3% increase
in unit sales.

Year-to-date net sales decreased $1.9 million, or 1.7%, to
$113.2 million from $115.1 million in the first-half of fiscal
2006.  Comparable store sales decreased 2.4% in the first-half of
fiscal 2007.  This compares to a comparable store sales decrease
of 7.2% for the first-half of fiscal 2006.

The net loss in the first-half of fiscal 2007 was $33.1 million,
was greater than the net loss of $24.0 million in the equivalent
period last year.

Edward Dayoob, chairman and chief executive officer of Whitehall
Jewelers, commented, "We are making solid progress toward
achieving our long-term goals.  Our strategy to increase
penetration of higher-margin gold and color categories drove an
11.3% increase in unit sales in the quarter.  While sales came in
below expectation, we believe this increase in transaction volume
will lead to incremental sales in the second half of the year."

Mr. Dayoob continued, "We ran an extended clearance sale during
the quarter to reposition our inventory to offer a higher mix of
full-priced goods in the second half of the year.  At the end of
the second quarter the level of clearance inventory was 28.0%
lower than a year ago.  We believe this has positioned the company
for improved margins."

Mr. Dayoob concluded, "We continue to make progress on
strengthening our balance sheet.  We have increased working
capital by $22.6 million from the beginning of the year.  We
believe our balance sheet is well positioned for the upcoming
holiday season."

At Aug. 4, 2007, the company's consolidated balance sheet showed
$213.9 million in total assets, $145.1 million in total
liabilities, and $66.8 million in total stockholders' equity.

XEROX CORP: Invests $60 Million on Next Generation Toner Plant
--------------------------------------------------------------
Xerox Corporation began filling more than 20 miles of pipe and
stainless steel tanks with billions of micron-sized toner
particles with the opening of its first U.S.-based emulsion
aggregation Toner plant.  The new $60 million facility is the
latest move by Xerox to support the growth of color pages in the
digital printing market while being environmentally responsible.  
Last year alone more than 30 billion color pages were printed on
Xerox devices.

Developed by Xerox and protected by more than 300 patents, EA
toner produces sharper images using less toner per page, and is
already used in more than a dozen Xerox products like the
company's WorkCentre(TM) multifunction devices that print, copy,
scan and fax, and the Xerox DocuColor(TM) series of color
printers.

The five-story 100,000 square-foot plant located near Rochester,
New York, will be staffed by more than 40 chemical engineers and
increases Xerox's capacity for toner made by the EA process by
175%.

In addition to producing better quality prints, EA Toner is
significantly more environmentally friendly.  Unlike traditional
toner, which is created by physically grinding composite polymeric
materials to micron-sized particles, EA toner is chemically grown
enabling the size, shape and structure of the particles to be
precisely controlled.  This Xerox-developed technology leads to
improved print quality, less toner usage, less toner waste and
less energy required for manufacturing and for printing.

EA Toner was developed exclusively at the company's start up
production facility in Mississauga, Ontario, attached to the Xerox
Research Centre Canada, where the toner was first developed.  The
new EA Toner plant, opened on Sept. 17, 2007, in Webster, is one
of the company's "smartest" manufacturing facilities and is part
of Xerox's commitment to reduce its overall greenhouse gas
emissions 10% by 2012.

"Xerox is the world's largest manufacturer of toner, so we need to
do it efficiently," Richard Schmachtenberg, vice president of
Consumables Development & Manufacturing Group, said.  "The plant
is designed for energy efficiency, and is packed with more than
4,000 sensors that track information about temperature, humidity,
air flow and other variables."  The plant is also organized into
zones that can be separately controlled for the most efficient
operation.  Depending upon the process being run, whole zones can
be shut off when not needed, saving energy costs.

The decision to open this state-of-the-art EA Toner plant is part
of the company's overall commitment to continue to invest in the
manufacturing of technologies that give the company a competitive
edge.  More than 6,000 employees currently work at the company's
1,100 acre campus, known as the Joseph C. Wilson Technology
Center.  In addition to manufacturing its high-end production
level printers, the center is a key research and development
location.

"We could have chosen to build this new plant anywhere in the
world but we're taking advantage of the strong manufacturing and
engineering competencies that exist in Monroe County," Wim Appelo,
vice president of Xerox Strategic Services, said.  "It's an
investment in the community and in our people and symbolic of our
on-going initiative to make our Webster facility a model
showcase."

* Fitch Places 48 Classes from 14 CDOs Under Negative Watch
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch has placed 48 classes from 14 structured finance
collateralized debt obligations on Rating Watch Negative.  
Additionally, 29 classes from 10 SF CDOs remain on Rating Watch
Negative by Fitch.  The actions affect approximately
$1.2 billion of CDO notes issued from $7.7 billion of mezzanine SF
CDOs and $67 million of CDO notes issued from $4.5 billion of
high-grade SF CDOs issued during 2006 and 2007.

These actions are a result of Fitch's ongoing collateral portfolio
review of SF CDOs where significant portions of the portfolio have
been downgraded or placed on Rating Watch Negative by either Fitch
or the other major rating agencies.  In addition to public rating
actions, this collateral portfolio review identified
concentrations of subprime RMBS bonds issued in 2006 where
expected losses may be significantly higher than the ratings
suggest.

* BOOK REVIEW: Life, Death and the Law: Law and Christian Morals

Norman St. John-Stevas' Life, Death and the Law demonstrates that
despite the current diversity in our Anglo-American society,
Christian ethics have played a major role in shaping the law with
regard to moral issues.

Many Christians still look to the law to enforce Christian
standards of morality and social behavior, particularly with
regard to respect for the human person and concern for human
rights.

This book examines such interplay in a liberal society, namely
that of the Anglo-American tradition.

After stating some general principles governing the relationship
between Christian morality and the law in England and the United
States, the author examines several contemporary legal-moral
issues: contraception, artificial insemination, human
sterilization, homosexuality, suicide, and euthanasia the role
that religion can, and sometimes does, play in their legal
interpretation.

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

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
