BANKUNITED FINANCIAL: Cuts 180 Jobs to Improve Financial Strength
-----------------------------------------------------------------
BankUnited Financial Corporation, parent company of BankUnited
FSB, disclosed that as part of its strategic plan, it is reducing
the headcount of the BankUnited FSB by approximately 160 persons,
or 12% of the BankUnited FSB's current workforce.

The reductions will come from the BankUnited FSB's residential
lending support and operations. The company expects this action to
result in estimated annualized cost savings of approximately
$11 million.

"We have done everything to avoid cutting staff and it is painful
to get to this point," Alfred R. Camner, BankUnited's chairman and
chief executive officer, said.  "Unfortunately in this
unprecedented economic environment, it has become a necessary
step."

                     Regulatory Consent Orders

The company and the BankUnited FSB have reached agreement with the
Office of Thrift Supervision on regulatory consent orders that
require the company and the BankUnited FSB to take various actions
and impose certain restrictions designed to improve their
financial strength.  The company has disclosed most of the actions
and restrictions set forth in the new Orders which the OTS and the
company and BankUnited FSB agreed.  BankUnited and the BankUnited
FSB have therefore, already taken action on, and in certain
situations, completed or made substantial progress towards
completion of a number of the required actions.

The Orders acknowledge that BankUnited has submitted a capital
augmentation plan and an alternative capital strategy to the OTS
to preserve and enhance its capital and the BankUnited FSB's
capital. Upon receipt of the OTS's written non-objection,
BankUnited must adopt and implement the capital plan.  The Orders
require the BankUnited FSB, on and after Dec. 31, 2008, to meet
and maintain a minimum Tier One Core Capital Ratio of 7% and a
minimum Total Risk-Based Capital ratio of 14%.  The BankUnited
FSB's core and risk-based capital ratios were 7.6% and 13.8% at
June 30, 2008.

The Orders prohibit the BankUnited FSB from paying, and BankUnited
from accepting or requesting from the BankUnited FSB, dividends or
capital distributions without receiving the prior written approval
of the OTS.  The Orders also require, among other things, that
BankUnited and the BankUnited FSB notify the OTS prior to adding
directors or senior executive officers; limit certain kinds of
severance and indemnification payments; and obtain OTS approval
before entering into, renewing, extending, or revising any
compensatory or benefits arrangements with any director or
officer.

The Orders also require that the BankUnited FSB enhance its
policies and procedures regarding its allowance for loan losses,
limit its asset growth and develop strategies to strengthen its
liquidity position.

In addition, the Orders preclude the BankUnited FSB from
originating any loans that provide for or may result in negative
amortization, including payment option adjustable rate mortgages.
Additionally, the Orders preclude the BankUnited FSB from
originating any loans under reduced documentation and no
documentation loan programs; require the BankUnited FSB to reduce
the portfolio of negative option ARM loans; and enhance monitoring
and internal reporting on the option ARM loan reduction efforts
and on unpaid mortgage insurance claims.  The BankUnited FSB must
report regularly to the OTS on such efforts.  As disclosed the
BankUnited FSB has already terminated the option ARM loan program,
eliminated all reduced documentation and no documentation loan
programs and suspended the payment of dividends.

"We have been working closely with our regulators to proactively
position BankUnited to meet the challenges of the sharp decline in
the housing and financial markets," Mr. Camner said.  "We have
already enacted many of the elements of the order.  "Most
importantly the Orders do not prevent us from offering the
products and services needed to meet our customers' banking needs.  
Our employees remain committed to providing our customers with the
high-quality and professional service to which they are
accustomed."

  Deferral of Interest Payments on the company's Trust
Preferred                       
                            Debentures

The company's board of directors has determined to defer payment
of regularly scheduled quarterly interest payments on the
company's aggregate $237 million of floating rate junior
subordinated interest debentures associated with its ten trust
preferred subsidiaries.  Pursuant to the indentures for the
Subordinated Debentures, the company has the right to defer
payments of interest for up to twenty consecutive quarterly
periods, provided that there is no event of default, existing at
the time of deferral.  During a period for which interest payments
are deferred the company may not, among other things and subject
to certain exceptions, declare or pay dividends with respect to
the company's capital stock, pay principal or interest on debt
that rank pari passu or junior to the Subordinated Debentures and
make any payments under guarantees of the company which rank pari
passu or junior to the Subordinated Debentures.  During a period
when interest payments are being deferred, interest continues to
accrue at an annual rate equal to the interest rate in effect for
such period and compounded quarterly from the date of deferral.  
All interest, including the additional compounded quarterly
interest, must be paid at the end of the deferral period.  The
total estimated annual interest that would be payable on the
Subordinated Debentures, if not deferred, would be $12.4 million,
based on current variable rates.  The deferrals are expected to
take effect commencing with the regularly scheduled payments in
October 2008.

BRAY & GILLESPIE: $6.8MM Award to Belfor "Null," Attorney Says
--------------------------------------------------------------
Jay Stapleton of Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that attorneys
for Bray & Gillespie LLC said a court judgment ordering the Debtor
to pay restoration firm Belfor USA $6.8 million has no effect
after Bray's filing for bankruptcy.

Bray & Gillespie filed for bankruptcy protection in federal court
on Sept. 12.  On Sept. 15, Circuit Judge Richard S. Graham ordered
the Debtor to pay the amount to Belfor, which was brought in to do
disaster recovery of eight hotels for the company after the 2004
hurricanes.  The ruling stemmed from a non-jury trial held in
April.  Bray stands to lose the now-closed Treasure Island Resort
to foreclosure if it doesn't pay.

The judgment is a "nullity," because bankruptcy actions put a stay
on foreclosure claims, according to R. Scott Shuker, Esq. one of
the company's attorneys, the report said.  Belfor or any creditor
will have to file a claim in the bankruptcy case.

Marvin P. Pastel, Esq., an Atlanta attorney, represents Belfor in
the lawsuit.

The company's hotels will remain open, reservations will be
honored, and the 571 company employees will keep their jobs,
company officials said, according to the report.

Bray & Gillespie LLC, doing business as Ocean Waters Management --
http://www.brayandgillespie.com-- operates hotels in Dayton  
Beach.  It is owned by partners Charles A. Bray and Joe Gillespie.  
Bray & Gillespie Holdings and 78 affiliates filed for separate
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on September 12, 2008 (Bankr.
M.D. Fla., Case No.: 08-05473).  R. Scott Shuker, Esq. at Latham
Shuker Eden & Beaudine LLP, represents the Debtors.  Bray
disclosed assets of $1 million to $10 million and debts of
$1 million to $10 million in its court filings.  According to
Bloomberg News, the company listed assets and debts of between
$100 million and $500 million each.


CANADIAN TRUST: Court Denies Noteholders Leave to Appeal Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Supreme Court of Canada denied on September 19, 2008, a
request for leave filed by 21 noteholders of Canadian asset-
backed commercial paper to appeal the Ontario Court of Appeal's
decision to uphold an order issued by the Superior Court of
Justice (Commercial List) for the Province of Ontario,
sanctioning the Plan of Compromise & Arrangement proposed by the
Investors represented by the Pan-Canadian Investors Committee for
Third Party Structured Asset Backed Commercial Paper, Bloomberg
News reported.

The Supreme Court did not state a reason for its decision, the
report said.

"The alternative would have been incredibly complex," Purdy
Crawford, chairman of the Pan-Canadian Committee, told Bloomberg.

Allan Sternberg, Esq., one of the Appellants' counsel, told
Bloomberg that the Supreme Court Judges may have been "swayed" by
the recent U.S. financial crisis.  Among others, Lehman Brothers
Holdings Inc. sought bankruptcy protection on September 15, 2008;
American International Group Inc. narrowly missed a bankruptcy
filing when it accepted an $85 million loan from the U.S.
government on September 16 in exchange for the government
acquiring an 80% equity stake in the government; and Bank of
America committed to acquire Merrill Lynch for $40+ billion.  The
Lehman bankruptcy is the largest bankruptcy filing in the U.S.  
AIG is one of the world's largest insurer company.

"What's gone on this week could very well have impacted the
[Canadian Supreme Court's] decision," Bloomberg quoted Mr.
Sternberg as saying.  "There are allegations of a global
liquidity crisis and the judges probably didn't want to hold up
the plan any longer."

To note, the Appellants, which comprise about 3% of the Affected
ABCP Noteholders, have holdings of the commercial paper
aggregating roughly C$600 million to C$1 billion.  The Appellants
have been adamant about their opposition of the ABCP Plan release
provisions because they want to reserve their rights to file
lawsuits against banks and brokerages that sold them the Affected
ABCP.  Bloomberg elaborates that dealers of the Affected ABCP may
still be sued for fraud in certain isolated cases, but punitive
damages will not be allowed.

Meanwhile, Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty hailed the
Supreme Court's decision, Reuters disclosed in a separate report.  
"I am pleased that the Pan-Canadian Investors Committee plan for
restructuring asset-backed commercial paper cleared its final
legal hurdle this afternoon with the Supreme Court of Canada's
decision.  The court's decision means that, after months of
uncertainty, the restructuring can finally proceed as planned."

                   Notes May Be Untradeable

With the recent turmoil in the financial sector and the global
slide of credit markets, the restructured notes to be issued
under the terms of the Plan may be untradeable, the Financial
Post stated.  Because the restructuring of the notes will be
based on credit default swaps tied to "pools" of corporate debt,
the market for ABCP has just disappeared, the Financial Post
related.

"It's going to be a tough market to get liquidity in," Bloomberg
quoted Colin Kilgour, head of a Toronto-based firm that advises
Canadian companies on their commercial holdings, as saying.  
"There's no buyers for this stuff out there right now."

In a separate report, the Montreal Gazette noted that Pan-
Canadian Chair Purdy Crawford said the global credit market
crisis could affect the restructuring of the Canadian ABCP.  "If
it continues very long, it possibly could, yes.  That's all I can
really say," Mr. Crawford told the Gazette.

The Gazette related that Mr. Crawford has not confirmed if the
ABCP Plan investors are in discussions for options to the extent
the current credit market crisis affects the ABCP Plan.

               Pan-Canadian Committee's Statement

On September 19, 2008, the Pan-Canadian Investors Committee for
Third-Party Structured ABCP announced it was commencing the final
steps to implement its plan to restructure $32-billion of third-
party asset-backed commercial paper that has been frozen since
August 2007.

The announcement follows the decision earlier by the Supreme Court
of Canada to deny leave to appeal by a small group of corporate
investors who had sought to challenge the Superior Court of
Ontario's sanction of the Committee's plan and the Ontario Court
of Appeal's unanimous ruling affirming that decision.

The plan, which will see existing ABCP exchanged for longer
term notes, was approved in April by the overwhelming majority of
investors under the provisions of the Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act.

"[The] decision clears the last significant hurdle to
completing our work," said Purdy Crawford, Chairman of the
Investors Committee.  Mr. Crawford added that he was hopeful the
issuance of new notes would re-establish stability and liquidity
in the market over time.

The Investors Committee expects to be in a position to commence
the process for implementation of the restructuring by September
30 or shortly thereafter, with a view to completing implementation
during the month of October.

           Canaccord Welcomes Supreme Court Decision

On September 19, 2008, Canaccord Capital Inc. welcomes the Supreme
Court of Canada's decision not to grant leave to appeal the
Canadian Asset-Backed Commercial Paper (ABCP) restructuring plan.  
This ruling completes the court process, paving the way for the
execution of the restructuring transaction and the Canaccord
Relief Program.

"We commend the Supreme Court's decision," said Paul Reynolds,
President and CEO.  "We are eager to complete our relief program
and restore funds to our clients, who have been negatively
impacted by this market disruption.  We expect timelines for this
process to be announced in the coming days."

The Canaccord Relief Program combines the resale of  restructured
ABCP notes to credible purchasers with a Canaccord-funded top-up
to achieve par value.  Eligible clients - those holding an
aggregate of $1 million or less of ABCP - will remain entitled to
receive any unpaid interest pursuant to the Pan-Canadian Investor
Committee Plan and will be reimbursed by Canaccord for their share
of any restructuring costs.

Through its principal subsidiaries, Canaccord Capital Inc.  (TSX &
AIM: CCI) is a leading independent, full-service investment dealer
in Canada with capital markets operations in the United Kingdom
and the United States.  Canaccord is publicly traded on both the
Toronto Stock Exchange and AIM, a market operated by the London
Stock Exchange.  Canaccord has operations in two of the principal
segments of the securities industry: capital markets and private
client services.  Together, these operations offer a wide range of
complementary investment products, brokerage services and
investment banking services to Canaccord's private, institutional
and corporate clients.  Canaccord has approximately 1,698
employees worldwide in 30 offices, including 23 Private Client
Services offices located across Canada.  Canaccord Adams, the
international capital markets division, has operations in Toronto,
London, Boston, Vancouver, New York, Calgary, Montreal, San

CIRCUIT CITY: President & CEO Philip Schoonover Leaves
------------------------------------------------------
Miguel Bustillo and Ann Zimmerman of The Wall Street Journal
report that Circuit City Stores Inc.'s board ousted Philip J.
Schoonover, the company's  president, chairperson, and CEO.

Mr. Schoonover joined Circuit City four years ago to turn around
the troubled company, leaving Best Buy Co., where he was executive
vice president of customer segments.  He was appointed as Circuit
City's CEO two years ago.

Michael Felberbaum at The Associated Press relates that Mark J.
Wattles, whose investment firm holds a 6.5% stake in Circuit City,
sent a letter to the board in April, describing the turnaround
efforts under Mr. Schoonover "disastrous" and suggesting that Mr.
Schoonover be replaced.  Mr. Wattles, Mark Clothier at Bloomberg
News reports, started a "proxy fight" and called for Mr.
Schoonover's ouster earlier this year.  According to WSJ, Mr.
Wattles had threatened to oust the entire board earlier this year.  
Mr. Wattles agreed to stopped the proxy fight in exchange for
three board seats.

According to the AP, Mr. Schoonover had continuously defended the
turnaround plan despite some acknowledged missteps and had asked
shareholders for more time.  Bloomberg relates that Mr. Schoonover
had said, "We need to perform in the second half of this year, and
that's what we're focused on."

Circuit City, the AP says, reported one profitable quarter since
the second quarter of 2007.  The AP states that RBC Capital
Markets analyst Scot Ciccarelli wrote in a note to investors
Monday that "Circuit City's business has deteriorated dramatically
over the last two years and although we do not lay the blame
entirely on his shoulders, we do believe that some of Mr.
Schoonover's decisions definitely had a significantly negative
impact."  According to WSJ, Mr. Schoonover was also criticized for
decisions that backfired, such as dismissing veteran workers to
cut costs.  To try to recoup losses caused by falling TV prices,
Mr. Schoonover replaced 10% of the highest paid, most seasoned
staff in Circuit City's stores, the report says, citing Colin
McGranahan, retail analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co.

WSJ relates that James A. Marcum -- formerly an operating partner
of Tri-Artisan Capital Partners LLC and was a senior executive at
Hollywood Entertainment Corp., a video retailer founded by Mr.
Wattles -- was appointed to serve as acting president and CEO,
replacing Mr. Schoonover.  Mr. Marcum joined the board in June
after being nominated by Mr. Wattles.  According to Bloomberg, Mr.
Marcum helped turn around bankrupt companies Hollywood
Entertainment and Ultimate Electronics Inc., Mr. Wattles'
electronics retailer.

Circuit City's board elected Allen B. King as its chairperson,
according to WSJ.  Mr. King was Universal Corp.'s chairperson.

WSJ relates that Circuit City, under Mr. King, is soliciting bids
for the company.  WSJ states that Blockbuster Inc., who made an
unsolicited offer to acquire Circuit City for
$1 billion, had changed its mind.  The report says that Circuit
City's board had rejected two earlier offers -- an $8-a-share bid
from Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim in 2003 and a $17-a-share
offer from hedge-fund Highfields Capital Management LP three years
ago.

Bloomberg reports that Circuit City put itself up for sale in May.  
Mr. Marcum's appointment means that Circuit City probably won't
find a buyer, Bloomberg states, citing Sanford C. Bernstein & Co.
analyst Colin McGranahan.  "The board wouldn't replace the CEO if
they thought there was a chance the company would be sold.  Given
the time that has passed and the fact that the board just replaced
the CEO, that tells me that they don't expect a suitor at this
point," Bloomberg quoted Mr. McGranahan as saying.

On September 2, 2008, Circuit City Stores, Inc. and Philip
J. Dunn, senior vice president, treasurer and chief accounting
officer, terminated their employment relationship, effective as of
October 18, 2008.  Mr. Dunn joined the Company in 1984 and had
served as its principal accounting officer since 1996.

Michelle O. Mosier, 43, will succeed Mr. Dunn as the Company’s
principal accounting officer.   Ms. Mosier joined the Company in
2003 as Director – Financial Reporting and was promoted to Vice
President in 2005.  She has served as Vice President and
Controller since 2007 and will remain in those positions.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 3, 2008,
Pallavi Gogoi at BusinessWeek suggested that a chapter 11
bankruptcy filing may be in the offing for Circuit City after
Blockbuster withdrew its offer.  "Circuit City is in very serious
trouble, and any scenario is possible today," Mr. Gogoi quoted
Nick McCoy, senior consultant at TNS Retail Forward, a research
firm, as saying.

Mr. Gogoi also noted that Circuit City spokesman Bill Cimino has
said the company has adequate liquidity to survive several
quarters, if not years.  Mr. Cimino, according to Mr. Gogoi, said
a Chapter 11 filing is not part of the strategic alternatives that
the company is looking at.

Mr. Gogoi pointed out that Circuit City shares currently trade at
over $2 after Blockbuster made its decision and that the company's
market capitalization is $368,000,000.  Mr. Gogoi says the amount
is pocket change for a large private equity firm.

CORD BLOOD: Files SEC Prospectus for Common Stock Resale
--------------------------------------------------------
Cord Blood America Inc. has filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission a prospectus to register and sell securities.

The prospectus relates to the resale of 92,021,277 shares of the
company's common stock, par value of $0.0001, by certain
individuals and entities who beneficially own shares of Cord
Blood's common stock.  Cord Blood is not selling any shares of its
common stock in the offering and therefore  will not receive any
proceeds from the offering.

However, the Company will receive proceeds from the sale of its
common stock under the Securities Purchase Agreement  which was
entered into between the Company and Tangiers Investors, LP, the
selling stockholder.  Cord Blood agreed to allow Tangiers to
retain 10% of the proceeds raised under the Securities Purchase
Agreement.

The shares of common stock are being offered for sale by the
selling stockholder at prices established on the Over-the-Counter
Bulletin Board during the term of this offering, at prices
different than prevailing market prices or at privately negotiated
prices.

On Aug. 26, 2008, the last reported sale price of the common stock
was $0.0075 per share.  The common stock is quoted on the Over-
the-Counter Bulletin Board under the symbol "CBAI.OB."  These
prices will fluctuate based on the demand for the shares of the
common stock.

Tangiers, a selling stockholder, intends to sell up to 17,021,277
shares of common stock, which were previously issued as a
commitment fee under the Securities Purchase Agreement and shares
of the company's common stock which will be issued to Tangiers so
that Cord Blood may receive financing pursuant to the Securities
Purchase Agreement.  As of Aug. 26, 2008, the  shares of common
stock to be issued pursuant to advances under the Securities
Purchase Agreement upon issuance would equal approximately 30% of
the outstanding common stock.

With the exception of Tangiers, who is an "underwriter" within the
meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, no other underwriter or
person has been engaged to facilitate the sale of shares of Cord
Blood's common stock in this offering.  This offering will
terminate 24 months after the accompanying registration statement
is declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

                       Going Concern Doubt

Rose, Snyder & Jacobs, in Encino, Calif., expressed substantial
doubt about Cord Blood America Inc.'s ability to continue as a
going concern after auditing the company's consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2007.  The auditing firm
reported that the company has sustained recurring operating
losses, continues to consume cash in operating activities, and has
insufficient working capital and an accumulated deficit at
Dec. 31, 2007.

Cord Blood America Inc.'s consolidated balance sheet at June 30,
2008, showed $5,859,694 in total assets and $12,054,864 in total
liabilities, resulting in a $6,195,170 stockholders' deficit.

At June 30, 2008, the company's consolidated financial statements
also showed strained liquidity with $204,924 in total current
assets available to pay $12,054,864 in total current liabilities.

The company reported a net loss of $2,499,142 for the second
quarter ended June 30, 2008, compared with a net loss of
$1,758,472 in the same period last year.


COTT CORPORATION: Moody's Chips CFR to B3; Still on Review
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the ratings of Cott
Corporation (CFR to B3 from B2 and senior subordinate to Caa1 from
B3).  The ratings remain on review for further possible downgrade.  
The company's speculative grade liquidity rating remains unchanged
at SGL-3.

The downgrade reflects the likelihood that 2008 performance will
be substantially weaker than Moody's originally expected when it  
last lowered the rating on May 20, 2008.  The stable outlook had
anticipated stabilization in operating performance.  

However, Cott revised its outlook for the full year last month
when it said that declining volumes, heavy promotional activity
from the national brands, high commodity prices and certain
problems in the international concentrate unit will all contribute
to poor 3rd quarter performance.

The third quarter has a disproportionate impact on the full year
performance due to the importance of the summer selling season.  
Moody's had previously stated that EBITA margin sustained below 4%
or EBIT/Interest sustained below 1 times could lead to a
downgrade.  Moody's currently expects interest coverage to remain
below 1 times for the next several quarters and EBITA margin to be
below 4% for 2008.

Moody's review will focus on the actual reported performance for
the third quarter and the company's outlook for 2009, for which
there is currently very little visibility.  It will also focus on
the company's actual and expected liquidity situation in the back
half of this year and early next year.

The SGL-3 recognizes that internally generated cash flow is
expected to be weaker than previously projected and the
availability under the new $250 million facility is likely to be
less than expected.  If availability under the asset backed
facility drops below $30 million the company would trigger a fixed
charge coverage covenant, compliance with which could be somewhat
tight.

These ratings were lowered and remain on review for further
downgrade:

Cott Corporation:

  -- Corporate Family rating to B3 from B2
  -- Probability of Default Rating to B3 from B2

Cott Beverages, Inc.:

  -- $275 million 8% senior sub notes due 2011 to Caa1, LGD 5; 71%
     from B3, LGD 5; 72%

  -- Speculative grade liquidity rating is unchanged at SGL-3

Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, Cott Corporation is one of the
world's largest retailer-brand soft drink suppliers with a leading
position in take-home carbonate soft drink markets in the US,
Canada, and the UK.  Sales for the LTM period ended were
$1.7 billion.

DAVE CROFT MOTORS: Files for Chapter 11 Protection
--------------------------------------------------
Dave Croft Motors filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization
Wednesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of
Illinois.

Will Buss of the Belleville News-Democrat in Illinois reports that
Crawford D. Croft, who founded the Chrysler dealership in 1976 and
has operated at 901 Bluff Road since 1979, said the dealership
remains open for business.

"No one is losing their job," Mr. Croft said.  "There will be no
cutbacks.  We will just go on as normal."

Mr. Croft opted to file for Chapter 11 protection after Croft
Motors' largest creditor, Lisle-Ill.-based Chrysler Financial
Corp., sought more money from the Collinsville dealership, the
Democrat-News reports.

"They wanted me to put more money into the dealership and
personally guarantee a lot of loans," Mr. Croft said.  "When they
asked that, I wasn't in the position to do that."

The dealership has a total of $4.2 million in trade debt to 36
creditors, according to documents filed with the Court.  Other
creditors listed include Regions Bank at $502,000, Dave "Crawford"
Croft at $347,000 and various media and automotive businesses.

Dave Croft Motors operates a vehicle dealership in Collinsville,
Illinois.  The Debtor filed for Chapter 11 relief on Sept. 17,
2008 (Bankr. S.D. Ill. Case No. 08-32084).  Thomas Darin Boggs,
Esq., at Boggs Boggs and Bates LLC, represents the Debtor as
counsel.  When the Debtor filed for protection from its creditors,
it listed assets of $1 million to $10 million, and debts of
$1 million to $10 million.

according to the report.

DOT VN: Chang Park Raises Going Concern Doubt
---------------------------------------------
Chang G. Park, CPA, from San Diego, California, expressed on Sept.
10, 2008, substantial doubt about Dot VN Inc.'s ability to
continue as a going concern after auditing the company's condensed
consolidated balance sheet as of July 31, 2008.  The auditing firm
reported that the company experienced losses from operations.

The auditor said the the company has had limited revenues due to
the early stage of its efforts to transition into the marketing of
its Internet resources.  Consequently, the company has incurred
recurring losses from operations.  These factors, as well as the
risks associated with raising capital through the issuance of
equity and debt securities creates uncertainty as to the company's
ability to continue as a going concern, the auditor continued.

The company's consolidated balance sheets showed total assets of
$2,374,074 and total liabilities of $10,001,380 resulting in a
total shareholders' deficit of $7,627,306.

At July 31, 2008, the company's consolidated balance sheets showed
strained liquidity with $44,380 in total current assets available
to pay $10,001,380 in total current liabilities.

The company reported a $2,332,028 net loss on revenues of $376,680
for the quarterly period ended July 31, 2008, compared to a
$3,535,219 net loss on revenues of $290,253 for the same period a
year ago.

-----------------------------------------------
Dune Energy, Inc. disclosed in a Securities and Exchange
Commission filing that it has closed $38.1 million of its sale of
its Barnett Shale assets, located in Denton and Wise Counties,
Texas. The difference between the $38.1 million and the $41.5
million original sale price reflects post closing adjustments.  
The funds will be used to eliminate the $28.1 million outstanding
on Dune's $40 million revolver, and for general corporate
purposes.

James A. Watt, the Company's President and Chief Executive
Officer, stated, "This disposition allows Dune to focus its
activity on high rate of return projects in the Gulf Coast, and
develop significant new deeper pool exploratory projects across
our high quality property base".

EDGEWATER FOODS: Restricts Conversion of Preferred Stock
--------------------------------------------------------
Edgewater Foods International Inc. disclosed in a Securities and
Exchange Commission filing that on Sept. 5, 2008, it amended the
Certificate of Designation of the Relative Rights and Preferences
for its Series A, Series B and Series C Preferred Stock.  

As required, at least 75% of each class of the Company's preferred
stock consented to amending the Designation and the amendment was
approved by the Company's directors.  Pursuant to the amendment,
the conversion restriction contained the Designation now accounts
for the shares held by the holder and its affiliates; prior to the
amendment, the conversion restriction only accounted for the
shares held by the holder.  

The amendment was requested by the preferred stockholders.  The
amendment provides that at no time may a holder of shares of
Series A Preferred Stock convert shares of the Series A Preferred
Stock if the number of shares of Common Stock to be issued
pursuant to the conversion would cause the number of shares of
Common Stock owned by the holder and its affiliates at the time to  
exceed, when aggregated with all other shares of Common Stock
owned by the holder and its affiliates at that time, the number of
shares of Common Stock which would result in the holder and its
affiliates beneficially owning in excess of 9.9% of the then
issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock outstanding at that  
time.  However, upon a holder of Series A Preferred Stock
providing the Company with 61 days' notice that the holder would
like to waive this provision of the Certificate of Designation
with regard to any or all shares of Common Stock issuable upon
conversion of Series A Preferred Stock, this provision will be of
no force or effect with regard to those shares of Series A
Preferred Stock referenced in the Waiver Notice.

revenues, recurring losses from operations, and its need
for additional financing in order to fund its projected loss in

FRONTIER COMMS: Fitch Holds 'BB' IDR on Stable Telecom Performance
------------------------------------------------------------------
Frontier's 'BB' rating incorporated the relatively stable
performance of its primarily rural telecommunications operations,
its strong operating margins, expected stable credit metrics and
access to ample liquidity.  The company has also exceeded the
originally anticipated $30 million in synergies from the March
2007 acquisition of Commonwealth Telephone Enterprises, Inc., with
the revised expectations set at $40 million annually.  

Constraining factors in the rating include the continuing pressure
of competition and the slight levering effect of the acquisition
of Commonwealth Telephone Enterprises, Inc. in 2007 and the use of
free cash flow for a $200 million stock repurchase program in
2008.

Fitch anticipates that Frontier's gross debt-to-EBITDA in 2008
will remain relatively unchanged from the 3.8 times recorded in
2007.  The company's guidance calls for pre-dividend free cash
flow to be in the range of $470 million to $495 million, and
capital spending to range from $300 million to $310 million.

Competition from cable telephony and wireless operators has
pressured Frontier's revenues.  Approximately 60% of its access
lines are exposed to cable-provided voice services and over the
next one to two years the level is expected to reach approximately
65%.  To retain and attract customers, Frontier is aggressively
bundling high-speed data and video services.  Over recent
quarters, customer-based revenues have been relatively stable,
even in the face of access line losses in the 5% to 6% range, due
to the bundling activities.  While customer revenues have been
stable, Frontier has experienced revenue declines from high-margin
regulatory-derived sources such as universal service fund receipts
and switched access services.

Fitch expects Frontier to continue to face continued moderate
declines in its USF receipts due to the company's reduced costs
relative to national average costs per loop and overall access
line declines.  Longer-term reforms could also pressure USF and
access-service revenues.

Fitch notes that Frontier is likely to continue to evaluate
acquisitions as a use of capital.  However, management has stated
that under a scenario where they would lever up slightly, to
approximately 4x, to make an acquisition, that there is a strong
probability that leverage would be back down as the property was
integrated.

Total debt at June 30, 2008 was $4.75 billion, up approximately
$11 million from year-end 2007.  Liquidity is good with an
undrawn, $250 million senior unsecured credit facility in place
until May 2012 and $179 million in cash at June 30, 2008.  There
are no material maturities until 2011, when approximately
$1.1 billion in debt matures, and Fitch expects Frontier to take
steps over the coming years to reduce the amount of that debt.  In
February 2008, Frontier announced a new $200 million share
repurchase program, with repurchases to take place over a 12-month
period.  By June 30, 2008, approximately 56% of the program had
been completed.

The ratings affirmed are:

Frontier Communications Corporation:

  -- IDR 'BB';
  -- Senior unsecured $250 million credit facility due May 18,
     2012 'BB';

  -- Senior unsecured $148.5 million senior unsecured term loan
     due Dec. 31, 2012;

  -- Senior unsecured notes and debentures 'BB';

Citizens Utilities Trust:
  -- 5% company obligated mandatorily redeemable convertible
     preferred securities due 2036 'BB-'.

     1995.

Commonwealth Telephone Enterprises, Inc.
  -- IDR 'BB';
  -- Convertible Notes 'BB'.


GENITOPE CORP: May File for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
------------------------------------------------------------
Genitope Corp. expects to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection or liquidate its assets and dissolve the corporation,
which the company anticipates will result in the stockholders of
the company receiving no consideration or continuing interest in
the MyVax personalized immunotherapy or monoclonal antibody
programs or other assets of the company as stockholders.

Genitope has suspended active development of its MyVax programs.  
it estimates that, as of Aug. 31, 2008, net of the approximately
$630,000 of accounts payable, it had cash and cash equivalents of
approximately $1,000,000 and marketable securities with an
estimated fair market value of approximately $476,000.

Genitope has sold its equipment and vacated one of the two
buildings in Fremont, California, that formerly served as its
principal offices.  It will vacate the second building in the  
near future.  Genitope currently has one employee, Dr. Dan Denney,
Jr., its Chief Executive Officer.

As of Aug. 31, 2008, Genitope had:

      (i) approximately $1,600,000 million in cash and cash
          equivalents; and

     (ii) marketable securities with a par value of
          approximately $711,000 and an estimated current fair
          market value of approximately $476,000.

Genitope believes that it had satisfied all of its liabilities as
of Aug. 31, 2008, other than accounts payable of approximately
$630,000, which the company intends to pay, and obligations under:

      (i) two May 2005 lease agreements to lease an aggregate
          of approximately 220,000 square feet of space located
          in two buildings in Fremont, California;

     (ii) a capital lease with General Electric Capital
          Corporation; and

    (iii) an equipment lease with Cisco Systems Capital
          Corporation.

There are currently over 12 years remaining under the Real Estate
Leases, with a total remaining rental obligation of $97,900,000 as
of Aug. 31, 2008.  Genitope's unsatisfied obligations to GECC and
Cisco, after giving effect to the sale of available equipment
securing the GECC Lease and the payment of the proceeds therefrom
to GECC, are approximately $2,700,000 in the aggregate.  Genitope
is unable to satisfy its obligations under these agreements.  
Genitope does not believe that there is remaining equipment
securing the GECC Lease that is available for sale to offset its
remaining obligation to GECC.
     
Genitope is continuing to evaluate the data from its pivotal Phase
3 clinical trial of MyVax personalized immunotherapy in previously
untreated follicular B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients and
related data, with the goal of obtaining value for MyVax
personalized immunotherapy, but the outcome of this evaluation and
Genitope's ability to obtain value remains highly uncertain.
     
In April 2008, Genitope had retained Piper Jaffray & Co. to act as
its financial advisor to provide financing and strategic advisory
services to the company.  In connection with this engagement,
representatives of Piper Jaffray contacted a wide range of third
parties seeking a possible investment in Genitope or with respect
to the company's assets, or a partnership, licensing or
acquisition transaction with the company.  To date, no third party
has proposed terms for such a transaction.  

              About Genitope Corporation

Based in Fremont, Calif., Genitope Corporation --
http://www.genitope.com-- is a biotechnology company focused on  
the research and development of novel immunotherapies for the
treatment of cancer. Until Genitope recently suspended its

attack cancer cells. Genitope is also developing a monoclonal
antibody panel that it believes will potentially represent a
novel, personalized approach for treating NHL.

GRAY TELEVISION: Moody's Confirms 'B2' Corp. Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed Gray Television, Inc.'s
Corporate Family Rating at B2 and its Probability of Default
rating at B3.  Additionally, Moody's confirmed the B2 rating on
the company's senior secured credit facility ($100 million
revolving credit facility and $925 million term loan facility).  
The outlook is negative.  In addition, Moody's upgraded the
company's speculative grade liquidity rating to SGL-3 from SGL-4.  
This concludes Moody's review initiated on June 18, 2008.

Moody's notes that Gray issued $75 million of preferred stock in
the second quarter of 2008 and used the proceeds to repay its term
loan, which in Moody's view allowed the company to remain in
compliance with its financial maintenance covenants governed by
the senior secured credit facility at the end of the second
quarter of 2008.  Gray issued an additional $25 million of
preferred stock in the third quarter of 2008 and again used the
proceeds to repay term debt.

Despite these debt pay downs, Moody's believes that the company
will continue to face a tight covenant compliance margin over the
intermediate term, especially when the covenant step-downs occur
in the fourth quarter of 2008 and 2009, and these concerns are
reflected in the negative outlook and the SGL-3 liquidity rating
for the company.

Moody's has taken these rating actions:

Issuer - Gray Television, Inc.

  -- Corporate Family Rating -- Confirmed B2
  -- Probability-of-default rating -- Confirmed B3
  -- $100 million revolving credit facility -- Confirmed B2
     (LGD 3, 35%)

  -- $925 million term loan facility -- Confirmed B2 (LGD 3, 35%)
  -- Speculative grade liquidity rating -- to SGL-3 from SGL-4

Gray's ratings reflect on-going pressure on the company's
operating performance due to the soft advertising climate, high
financial leverage (including high debt-to-EBITDA leverage of 9.3x
at June 30, 2008 based on the trailing twelve months' EBITDA,
incorporating 75% of Gray's new Series D Perpetual Preferred Stock
as debt and including Moody's standard adjustments), modest scale
and minimal free cash flow relative to debt during the last twelve
months.  

Moody's concerns regarding the limited room under the company's
financial leverage maintenance covenant also weigh on the rating.  
Ratings further incorporate the increasing business risk
associated with the broadcast television industry as advertising
spending gets diversified over a growing number of media.

Gray's ratings are supported, however, by its diverse geographic
footprint and network affiliations, its dominant news franchise
that helps capture a significant share of in-market revenue, and
its strategy of operating stations in university markets and/or
state capitals.  Ratings are further supported by the company's
heavier mix of local advertising revenue.

Gray Television, Inc., headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is a
television broadcaster that owns 36 primary television stations
serving 30 mid-sized markets.  The company's total revenues were
approximately $307 million for year ended December 31, 2007.


GREEN BUILDERS: Receives Non-Compliance Notice from AMEX
--------------------------------------------------------
Green Builders Inc. received notice from the staff of the American
Stock Exchange that it is not in compliance with the reporting
requirements for continued listing on AMEX set forth in Section
803(B)(2)(c) of the AMEX Company Guide due to Green Builders'
failure to have an audit committee comprised of at least two
independent directors.

On Sept. 3, 2008, Green Builders notified AMEX that as a result of
Barry Williamson and Christopher Ney's resignation as directors of
Green Builders, the Audit Committee would not consist of two
independent directors as required by Section 803(B)(2)(c) of the
AMEX Company Guide.  As a result, Green Builders has not been in
compliance with Section 803(B)(2)(c) of the AMEX Company Guide
since Sept. 3, 2008.

In its notice, AMEX advised Green Builders that Green Builders has
until the earlier of next annual shareholders' meeting or Sept. 3,
2009, to regain compliance with the AMEX requirements.  AMEX
further advised Green Builders that in setting the deadline for
compliance with the AMEX requirements, AMEX determined not to
apply, at this time, the continued listing evaluation and follow-
up procedures specified in Section 1009 of the Company Guide.  
Because Green Builders is not in compliance with the AMEX
continued listing standards, however, the notice constitutes a
warning letter pursuant to Section 1009(a)(i) of the Company Guide
and notice of failure to satisfy a continued listing standard.

In its notice, AMEX also advised Green Builders that if Green
Builders fails to regain compliance with Section 803(B)(2)(c) of
the Company Guide on or before the earlier of next annual
shareholders' meeting or Sept. 3, 2009, or the occurrence of any
subsequent failure to comply with any other continued listing
requirements will result in the Staff assessing Green Builders'
continued listing eligibility including, as appropriate, the
application of the continued listing evaluation and follow-up
procedures specified in Section 1009 of the Company Guide and/or
initiation of delisting proceedings.

Green Builders intends to promptly take all necessary actions to
regain compliance with the AMEX continued listing standards within
the time frame noted above.  Green Builders' board of directors is  
considering candidates who will qualify to serve on the Audit
Committee, including determining if a current board member meets
the eligibility requirements of AMEX to serve as an independent
member of the audit committee.

                       Going Concern Doubt

Rosenberg Rich Baker Berman & Company, in Bridgewater, N.J.,
expressed substantial doubt about Halcyon Jets Holdings Inc.'s
ability to continue as a going concern after auditing the
company's consolidated financial statements for the period Feb. 1,
2007 (date of inception) through Jan. 31, 2008.  The auditing firm
reported that the company began its opinions in March 2007 and has
not as yet attained a level of operations which allows it to meet
its current overhead.  

The auditing firm added that the company does not contemplate
attaining profitable operations within its first few operating
cycles and is dependent upon obtaining additional financing
adequate to fund working capital, infrastructure, and significant
marketing/investor related expenditures to gain market recognition
in order to achieve a level of revenue adequate to support its
cost structure.

HOME INTERIORS: Sale of Dallas Woodcraft to Myron Bowling Approved
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle of Bloomberg News reports that the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Texas authorized Home Interiors
& Gifts, Inc., and its debtor-affiliates to sell the assets of its
Dallas Woodcraft Co. affiliate for $652,000 to Myron Bowling
Auctioneers, Inc.

No buyer was under contract when the Debtors set up the sale
process, according to the report.

The Debtors, according to the report, filed a plan and disclosure
statement along with their Chapter 11 petitions.  A hearing for
approval of the disclosure statement, according to the report, was
pushed back most recently until Sept. 18 until it was canceled.

                      About Home Interiors

Headquartered in Carrollton, Texas, Home Interiors & Gifts, Inc.
-- http://www.homeinteriors.com/-- manufactures, imports and        
distributes indoor and outdoor home decorative accessories.  It
was founded by Mary Crowley in 1957.  Through its affiliates,
the company has a significant presence in Mexico, Puerto Rico,
and Canada.  Annual revenue in 2007 reached USUS$300 million.  
When Mary Crowley, died in 1986, her son, Don Carter continued the
business operation nearly debt-free.  In a leveraged transaction
in 1998, private equity firm of Hicks, Muse, Tate, and Furst
acquired 66% of the parent company, which resulted in the
imposition of more than US$500 million in debt on the Debtors.  In
the face of decreased sales and increased debt load, bondholders
canceled their debts in February 2006 in exchange for receiving
most of the outstanding equity of the Debtors.

About 40% of the goods the Debtors sell are now acquired from
manufacturers in China.  In the last decade, sales volume in the
U.S. has waned, but the Debtors reported that sales in Mexico
and Puerto Rico significantly increased.

The company and six of its affiliates filed for Chapter 11
protection on April 29, 2008 (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Lead Case No.08-
31961).  Andrew E. Jillson, Esq., Cameron W. Kinvig, Esq.,

INPHONIC INC: Parties Object to Confirmation of 2nd Amended Plan
----------------------------------------------------------------
William Rochelle of Bloomberg News reports that the lead plaintiff
in a class-action lawsuit on behalf of shareholders filed an  
objection with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware to the Second Amended Joint Plan of Liquidation of SN
Liquidation Inc., formerly known as InPhonic, Inc., and its
debtor-affiliates, and the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors in the case.

The plaintiff, according to the report, says the plan is defective
by not allowing the suit to go forward while collecting a judgment
only from proceeds of directors and officers' liability insurance.

The Internal Revenue Service also objected on the grounds that its
priority tax claim isn't paid in cash on confirmation, according
to the report.  Instead, the tax claim is paid over time,
presenting the possibility of eventual non-payment, the IRS said  
according to the report.

The Court has set an Oct. 14 confirmation hearing on the Chapter
11 plan, according to the report.

SN Liquidation and the Committee filed the Second Amended Plan
August 11, 2008.  The Court held a Disclosure Statement hearing on
June 13.  The Court later set a status conference regarding the
Disclosure Statement on July 15.  It approved the Disclosure
Statement for distribution to interested parties on August 12.

The Plan contemplates the liquidation of the Debtors' assets and
the resolution of the outstanding claims against and interests in
the Debtors.  Prior to the November 8, 2007 bankruptcy filing, the
Debtors reached an agreement, subject to higher and better offers,
to sell substantially all of their assets to Adeptio INPC Funding
LLC, the parent corporation of Simplexity, Inc.  The Committee
objected to the sale.  The Committee, the Debtors, and Adeptio
reached a compromise whereby Adeptio agreed to make certain
payments in connection with the Debtors' bankruptcy cases and
pursuant to a plan of reorganization.  After a hearing on
December 13, 2007, the Court entered an order approving the sale.

Mr. Rochelle says the buyer of the Debtors' assets is an affiliate
of secured creditor Versa Capital Management.

The Plan provides for the distribution of the bankruptcy estates'
interest in proceeds from The sale and the creation of a
litigation trust that will administer remaining property of the
Debtors, which includes causes of action.  Under the Plan, each
holder of an Allowed General Unsecured Claim -- including rebate
claims -- will receive its pro rata share of all Cash, if any,
available for distribution by the Litigation Trust up to the full
amount of the Allowed General Unsecured Claim, after satisfaction
in full of all expenses, unpaid Allowed Secured Claims, including
the Adeptio Loan, Allowed Administrative Claims, Allowed Priority
Tax Claims, and Allowed Priority Non-Tax Claims.  Allowed General
Unsecured Claims are estimated to total $350 million, Mr. Rochelle
notes.

All Cash necessary for the Debtors or the Litigation Trustee to
make payments will be obtained from these sources:

   (a) the Debtors' or SN Liquidation's Cash on hand (which is
       little or none);

   (b) Cash received upon liquidation of the Debtors' assets  
       excluded from the sale, including proceeds of all the
       Debtors' Causes of Action against directors and officers or
       otherwise;

   (c) Adeptio's funding obligations pursuant to the sale.

The Term Sheet provides that Adeptio will provide a $500,000
secured loan to fund the investigation of Causes of Action and to
commence and prosecute litigation if appropriate through the
Litigation Trust.  The value of the Debtors' Causes of Action is
uncertain, and the Litigation Trust needs to further investigate
those claims.  

Mr. Rochelle says Versa was to provide as much as $500,000 for
payment of priority claims and $1.1 million for professional fees,
while putting $200,000 into a litigation trust and giving the
trust a $500,000 loan.

Intercompany Claims and Equity Interests are being extinguished
and will not receive any distribution.

Court authorized the Debtors to change their name and the caption

protection on Nov. 8, 2007 (Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 07-11666 to

at DLA Piper, LLC in New York, and Neil Glassman, Esq., Eric M.

serve on an Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the
Debtors' cases.  Kurt F. Gwynne, Esq., and Robert P. Simons, Esq.,

JEFFERSON COUNTY: Wants Payment Break on General Obligation Bond
----------------------------------------------------------------
Martin Z. Braun of Bloomberg News reports that Jefferson County in
Alabama seeks payment breaks from its general obligation
bondholders as it struggles to avoid bankruptcy amid soaring
borrowing costs on more than $3 billion of sewer bonds.

According to the report, the County Commission on Sept. 22 planned
to vote on forbearance agreements with holders of some of its
$270 million of general-obligation bonds, according to a meeting
notice.   Last month, Jefferson County's sewer bond creditors,
according to the report, agreed to postpone payments on the debt
until Sept. 30, giving the parties time to negotiate a
restructuring plan.  The forbearance for the general-obligation
creditors will also last until Sept. 30, according to the report.

Jefferson County, according to the report, faces a $20 million
payment on $120 million of floating-rate debt backed by the full,
faith and credit of the county, according to an Aug. 1 report by
Standard & Poor's.  After investors dumped the floating-rate bonds
amid the sewer debt crisis, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bayerische
Landesbank, banks of last resort that agreed to purchase the debt,
had the right to demand accelerated payment from the county,
according to the report.

Jefferson County may become the biggest-ever municipal bankruptcy
after interest rates on its sewer bonds tripled during the credit
crunch, according to the report.  Rates on the sewer debt rose as
high as 10 percent when Syncora Guarantee, Inc. and Financial
Guaranty Insurance Co., companies that insured the bonds, lost
their top credit ratings following losses on mortgage-related
securities, according to the report.

                       Derivatives Backfired

The problem was compounded when derivatives designed to protect
the county against rising borrowing costs backfired, according to
the report.

Interest and principal payments on the bonds have grown to $460
million a year, more than twice the amount the county collects in
revenue, according to former county financial adviser James White,
president of Porter White & Co. in Birmingham, according to the
report.

Syncora and Financial Guaranty sued Jefferson County on Sept. 16,
seeking a receiver to take over the sewer system and raise rates
to meet debt payments, according to the report.

County commissioners will vote on authorizing their attorneys to
respond to the suit on Sept 22, according to the report.

Standard & Poor's assigns a B rating, its fifth-highest junk bond
grade, to the county's general-obligation bonds, according to the
report.  The county's sewer bonds are rated C and D, the two
lowest junk grades.

                     About Jefferson County

Jefferson County has its seat in Birmingham.  It has a population
of 660,000.  It ended its 2006 fiscal year with a $42.6 million
general fund balance, according to Standard & Poor's.  The
Birmingham firm of Bradley Arant Rose & White, represents
Jefferson County.  Porter, White & Co. in Birmingham is the
county's financial adviser.  A bankruptcy by Jefferson County
stands to be the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.  It
could beat the record of $1.7 billion, set by Orange County,
California in 1994.  Jefferson County has $4.6 billion in overall
debt, including $3.2 billion in sewer bonds.  


                          *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on June 10, 2008,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services' ratings on Jefferson County,
Ala.'s series 1997A, series 2001A, series 2003 B-1-A through 2003
B-1-E, and series 2003 C-1 through 2003 C-10 sewer system revenue
bonds ('CCC' underlying rating [SPUR]) remain on CreditWatch with
developing implications.

As reported by the TCR on July 22, 2008, Moody's Investors
Service's continues to review the Caa3 rating on Jefferson
County's (AL) $3.2 billion in outstanding sewer revenue
warrants for possible downgrade.


JEVIC TRANSPORTATION: Wants Plan Filing Period Moved to Jan. 16
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jevic Holding Corp., Creek Road Properties, LLC, and Jevic
Transportation, Inc., ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware to extend their exclusive periods within
which to file a chapter 11 plan and to solicit acceptances of that
plan.  The Debtors request that their Exclusive Filing Period be
extended for an additional 120 days through and including January
16, 2009, and their Exclusive Solicitation Period be extended
through and including March 17, 2009.

The Debtors explain that they and their professionals have not had
sufficient time to negotiate a plan. The Debtors and their
professionals have been focused on winding down the Debtors'
estates to maximize the value to creditors, including, without
limitation, liquidating substantially all of the Debtors' assets.  
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors appointed in the
Debtors' cases also has not concluded its investigation as to any
potential challenges to the lenders' liens.  The Debtors note that
they have been working closely with the Committee and the lenders
to maximize the value of estate assets.

The Debtors also note that their cases have only been pending for
less than four months, and have been moving at an extremely fast
pace.  Given the complexity of the Debtors' cases, nearly all of
the Debtors' attention has been required to successfully wind-down
the Debtors' businesses and liquidated their assets. The Debtors
tell the Court that they have accomplished a great deal during the
short period since the Petition Date and submit that extensions of
the Exclusive Periods are appropriate under the circumstances.

The Court will convene a hearing October 15, at 2:00 p.m. to
consider the Debtors' request.  Objections, if any, are due
October 8.

Based in Delanco, New Jersey, Jevic Transportation Inc. --
http://www.jevic.com/-- provides trucking services.  The company  
has two units: Jevic Holding Corp. and Creek Road Properties.  
Neither of the units have assets nor operations.  The company and
its affiliates filed for chapter 11 protection on May 20, 2008
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 08-11008).  Domenic E. Pacitti, Esq., and
Michael W. Yurkewicz, Esq., at Klehr Harrison Harvey Branzburg &
Ellers, in Wilmington, Delaware, represent Jevic Transportation.  
The U.S. Trustee for Region 3 has appointed five creditors to
serve on an Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  Robert J.
Feinstein, Esq., Bruce Grohsgal, Esq., and Maria A. Bove, Esq., at
Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware,
represent the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

Before filing for bankruptcy, the Debtors initiated an orderly
wind-down process.  As a part of the wind-down process, the
Debtors have ceased substantially all of their business and
terminated approximately 90% of their employees. The Debtors
continue to manage the wind-down process in attempt to deliver all
of the freight that is in their system and to retrieve their
assets.

When the Debtors filed for protection against their creditors,
they listed assets and debts between $50 million and $100 million.


JEVIC TRANSPORTATION: Panel Balks at Bid to Indemnify Officers
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the bankruptcy
cases of Jevic Holding Corp., Creek Road Properties, LLC, and
Jevic Transportation, Inc., objects to the Debtors' bid to
indemnify and advance up to $145,000 to cover the defense costs
and expenses of David H. Gorman and Gerald A. Paulson, the
Debtors' officers and directors serving as of the bankruptcy
filing date, in connection with the defense of actions brought by
various former employees and the probe on the Debtors' conduct and
affairs being conducted by the Creditors Committee.

The Debtors contend that they have a duty to indemnify Messrs.
Gorman and Paulson.  The Debtors note that the officers relied
upon the advancement and indemnity protections at the time they
joined the Debtors and throughout the performance of their duties.

Certain former employees of the Debtors have commenced lawsuits
against the Debtors, their owner Sun Capital Partners, and other
individuals alleging violations of New Jersey and federal statutes
concerning employee terminations and wage law violations.

The Debtors also note that although Messrs. Gorman and Paulson are
not the target of the Committee's probe, they are likely to incur
expenses relating to discovery.

The Committee, however, thinks that the Debtors are seeking to
elevate the treatment of the prepetition, contingent
indemnification claims of the "Directors and Officers" to
administrative claim status by paying the Directors' and Offcers'
costs and expenses incurred in connection with actions commenced
against the Debtors, the Directors and Officers and others under
the WARN Act.  The Debtors' request is in contravention of section
502(e)(1)(b) of the Bankuptcy Code and the priority scheme
established by the Bankruptcy Code, the Committee says.

"The Debtors' request is especially audacious in these cases, in
which the Debtors have already shut down their businesses and
liquidated substantially all of their assets.  The Debtors'
request lacks any business justification, and is a transparent
effort by the Directors and Officers, acting through the Debtors,
to benefit themselves and other insiders at the expense of general
creditors," Bruce Grohsgal, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones
LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, says, on the panel's behalf.

JOE GIBSON: Mitsubishi Hauls Away Cars; Suzuki Awaiting Sale  
------------------------------------------------------------
Craig Peters at the Spartanburg Herald-Journal reports that
Mitsubishi Motors Credit of America hauled away cars from Joe
Gibson Automotive, Inc., on Sept. 16.

Spartanburg Herald-Journal relates that Mitsubishi Motors had
filed a motion for relief from automatic stay so it could take the
cars to another location.  According to the report, the cars were
transported to Greensboro, N.C. and would likely be sold in
auctions.  Three dozen vehicles remained in Joe Gibson, the report
says.

Mitsubishi Motors has been paying for security guards since its
dealership with Joe Gibson closed more than a month ago, according
to Spartan Herald-Journal.  Court documents indicate that as of
Sept. 8, 2008, Joe Gibson owed Mitsubishi Motors not less than
$2,673,885 and the collateral is currently valued at no more than
that amount.

Mitsubishi Motors's reclaiming of its cars has "no impact on the
assets of Joe Gibson" because Joe Gibson had no equity in the
vehicles, Spartanburg Herald-Journal states, citing Pat Knie, an
attorney representing some of Joe Gibson's customers.

American Suzuki, says Spartanburg Herald-Journal, is waiting for
Bill McCarthy, Joe Gibson's attorney, to work out a sale of the
franchise to an undisclosed buyer.  Spartanburg Herald-Journal
relates that Mr. McCarthy said early this month that negotiations
on a $3.1 million sale of the Suzuki dealership in Spartanburg,
which is part of Joe Gibson Auto World, were in the draft stages.  
The report says that Mr. McCarthy said during a Sept. 4 court
hearing that he believes the sale will be for about $3.1 million
and could occur before a Oct. 10 hearing.

Russell Bradley at WSPA reports that car dealer Jay Wakefield has
made an offer for the Suzuki dealership for around $3.1 million.

Joe Gibson's Auto World, Inc., and its subsidiary, Joe Gibson
Automotive, Inc., sell new and used automobiles in retail.

Joe Gibson's Auto World, Inc., and Joe Gibson Automotive, Inc.,
filed separate voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 on July 16,
2008 (Bankr. S.D. N.Y. Lead Case No. 08-04215).  G. William
McCarthy, Jr., Esq., represent the Debtors in their
restructuring efforts.  When Joe Gibson's Auto World, Inc. filed
for bankruptcy, it listed assets of between $1,000,0000 and
$10,000,000 and estimated debts of between $10,000,0000 and
$50,000,000.

LEHMAN BROS: Mark Shafir to Leave Firm for Citigroup
----------------------------------------------------
Citigroup Inc. is hiring Mark G. Shafir, who was Lehman Brothers
Holdings Inc.'s global co-head of Mergers and Acquistion, to take
the same position in the company, David Enrich at The Wall Street
Journal reports, citing people familiar with the matter.

Mr. Shafir joined Lehman Brothers in 2003 from Thomas Weisel
Partners, and is one of the bankrupt company's highest-profile
bankers.  He helped arrange Lehman Brothers' rushed sale to
Barclays.

According to WSJ, sources say that Citigroup was trying to lure
Mr. Shafir before Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy.  Mr.
Shafir will take the place of Frank Yeary in Citigroup, WSJ says.  
Mr. Yeary left in June to become a vice chancellor at University
of California, Berkeley.  The report states that Mr. Shafir will
report to investment-banking co-heads Raymond McGuire and Alberto
Verme.

WSJ relates that Barclays President Robert E. Diamond Jr. has made
the retention of senior Lehman bankers a top priority.  Court
documents indicate that Lehman employees have been broken into
categories like "key" and "critical," and that "approximately 200
employees of the sellers have been designated as key to the
success of the business, and 8 employees have been designated as
critical . . .   The retention of a substantial majority of key
employees, and all 8 critical employees, is a condition precedent
to the closing."

WSJ states that a source close to Barclays said the company was
aware of Mr. Shafir's pending departure and that he isn't
considered one of Lehman's eight "critical employees."

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Freddie Mac Has $1.2 Billion Unsecured Claims
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation said Lehman Brothers
Holdings, Inc., owes it $1.2 billion, plus accrued interest,
pursuant to certain unsecured lending transactions.  

Freddie Mac disclosed in a filing with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission that Lehman was its counterparty in certain
unsecured lending transactions due to mature Sept. 15, 2008, in
which Lehman was to make principal payments, aggregating  
$1.2 billion plus accrued interest, to Freddie Mac.  Lehman
sought Chapter 11 protection on Sept. 15.

Lehman services single-family loans for Freddie Mac.  The
company's potential exposure to Lehman for servicing-related
obligations due to Freddie Mac, including repurchase obligations,
is currently estimated to be approximately $400 million, the
company's chief executive officer, David M. Moffet, relates.

The company stated it does not know whether and to what extent it
will sustain a loss relating to those transactions.  "Actual
losses could materially exceed current estimates," Mr. Moffet
noted.

Freddie Mac said it is in the process of evaluating its exposures
to Lehman and its affiliates arising under other business
relationships.  "Until this evaluation is complete, the company
cannot provide assurances as to the potential materiality of such
exposures," Mr. Moffet added.

The automatic stay under the Bankruptcy Code prohibits creditors
from seeking immediate payment of debt from debtors, and requires
them to line up for recovery pursuant to a plan of reorganization
or liquidation that the Court will confirm.  Under the absolute
priority rule of the Bankruptcy Code, administrative claims, and
secured claims, to the extent of the value of their collateral,
will have priority over unsecured claims.  Unsecured claims,
however, will be paid first before any payments could be made on
account of stock ownerships.

"It's obvious Freddie didn't exercise reasonable safeguards while
using taxpayers' money," said Sean Egan, managing director at
Egan-Jones Ratings Co., an independent credit-rating firm,
according to Dow Jones Newswires.

"Lending such a large amount, there should have been collateral
in place," said Mr. Egan. "It's unfortunate that taxpayers will
have to bear a loss of this magnitude."

Freddie Mac is a stockholder-owned corporation established to
support homeownership and rental housing.  To recall, Freddie Mac  
staved off collapse after the U.S. Treasury and the Federal
Reserve led actions that placed Freddie Mac and affiliate Fannie
Mae through a conservatorship under the Federal Housing Finance
Agency.

LEXINGTON PRECISION: Balance Sheet at June 30 Upside-Down by $39MM
------------------------------------------------------------------
Lexington Precision Corporation's balance sheet at June 30, 2008,
showed total assets $60,067,000 and total liabilities of
$99,471,000, resulting in a stockholders' deficit of $39,404,000.

Net loss for three months ended June 30, 2008 was $1,940,000
compared to $1,361,000 for the same period in the previous year.

Net loss for six months ended June 30, 2008, was $3,402,000
compared to net loss of $2,278,000 for the same period in the
previous year.

Cash at June 30, 2008, totaled $8,595,000 compared to $212,000 at  
Dec. 31, 2007.  The cash on hand at June 30, 2008, resulted from
the company's debtor-in-possession financing arrangements, which
consists of:

   1) an arrangement with the company's senior, secured lenders to
      freeze the loans under the company's revolving line of
      credit at the amount outstanding on April 1, 2008, and to
      permit the company to utilize the cash collateral of the
      senior, secured lenders in the operation of its business
      through Feb. 25, 2009; and

   2) the DIP Note in the amount of $4,000,000 that matures on
      April 1, 2009.

                  Defaults upon Senior Securities

On Nov. 1, 2006, and February 1, May 1, August 1, and Nov. 1,
2007, and February 1, May 1, and August 1, 2008, the company
failed to pay the quarterly interest payments then due on its
Senior Subordinated Notes.  The past due interest payments total
$9,653,000.

                 Liquidity and Capital Resources

During the first half of 2008, operating activities of the
company's continuing operations provided net cash of $4,415,000.
Accounts receivable decreased by $644,000 during the first half of
2008,  because (1) the amount of outstanding billings for sales of
tools and automation equipment decreased by $656,000, (2) the
terms of sale to one of its customers changed, resulting in a
reduction in the dollar amount of receivables outstanding, and (3)
a number of invoices outstanding beyond terms at Dec. 31, 2007,
were paid during the first quarter of 2008.  Inventories increased
by $747,000 because of (a) increased metals prices, (b) the
rescheduling of customer orders due to the continued reduction in
the number of vehicles manufactured by the Detroit-based
automobile manufacturers, and (c) the build of components to
satisfy the safety stock requirements of certain of its customers
as a result of its chapter 11 filing.  Accrued expenses increased
by $1,693,000, because of the increase in accrued reorganization
expenses during the six-month period ended June 30, 2008.  Accrued
interest expense, including accrued interest expense classified as
a liability subject to compromise, increased by $2,841,000 because
of additional accruals of interest on its subordinated debt.
     
During the first half of 2008, investing activities of the
company's continuing operations used net cash of $1,744,000.
Capital expenditures attributable to the Rubber Group, the Metals
Group, and the Corporate Office totaled $1,509,000, $143,000, and
$11,000, for the purchase of equipment.  Capital expenditures for
the Rubber Group, the Metals Group, and the Corporate Office are
currently projected to total $2,985,000, $503,000, and $11,000,  
for the year ending Dec. 31, 2008.

During the first half of 2008, the company's financing activities
provided net cash of $5,710,000.  In April 2008, it received
$4,000,000 of cash from the issuance of the DIP Note and, during
the first six months of 2008, the company increased borrowings
under its revolving line of credit by $3,587,000.  The company
made principal payments on its debt totaling $1,663,000.  The
company used $214,000 of cash to fund financing expenses that were
incurred in connection with its efforts to restructure, refinance,
or repay its indebtedness.

LINCOLN LOGS: Files for Chapter 11 Protection
---------------------------------------------
North Country Gazette reports that Lincoln Logs Ltd. has filed for
Chapter 11 protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of New York.

Angela Miller, Esq., the attorney for Lincoln Logs, said that the
company's filing for bankruptcy was mainly due to the housing
market crisis and the resulting decline in consumer demand for
home building packages, North Country Gazette relates.  Higher
energy costs and a growing list of delayed orders are also factors
in the company's filing for bankruptcy, the report states.  
According to the report, Lincoln Logs incured $3.4 million in
losses from acquisitions dating back to 2003.

James Schlett at The Dailygazette.com relates that Lincoln Logs'
bankruptcy filing does not indicate how deep in debt the company
is.  Chief Operating Officer Jeff LaPell said in a statement that
it owes First Pioneer Farm Credit some
$2.6 million, mostly stemming from a 2003 revolving credit and
loan agreement.  Dailygazette.com states that Curtis Lumber is
listed as the case's leading unsecured creditor with claims of
$206,000.

Lincoln Logs, says Dailygazette.com, has moved "to shave
$2.1 million off of its overhead by closing unprofitable
businesses," which include True Craft Log Homes and Snake River
Homes.

North Country Gazette relates that Lincoln Logs' officials said
the company will continue operations while developing a plan of
reorganization with its creditors.  Ms. Miller said that Snake
River, the company's wholly-owned subsidiary, stopped operating
earlier this year, the report says.

Lincoln Logs' Chief Operating Officer Jeff LaPell said that the
firm will use cash flow from receivables to meet its ongoing
obligations to creditors throughout the reorganization, North
Country Gazette reports.  Lincoln Logs, according to North Country
Gazette, has a significant backlog of customer orders, which it
intends to honor.  According to Dailygazette.com, Lincoln Logs has
a backlog of sales orders totaling
$26.4 million.

Ms. Miller said that Lincoln Logs believes that it will emerge
from reorganization in a stronger financial position, North
Country Gazette reports.

MCCLATCHY COMPANY: Leroy Barnes, Jr. Discloses 17.9% Equity Stake
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Leroy Barnes, Jr. disclosed in a Securities and Exchange
Commission filing that he is deemed to beneficially own  
12,515,950 shares of Common Stock of The McClatchy Company, which
include 18,200 shares of Class A Common Stock (including stock
options) and 12,500,000 shares of Class B Common Stock.  The
percentage of Common Stock beneficially owned by Mr. Barnes is
approximately 17.9% of the Company's shares, based on a total of
57,384,516 shares of Class A Common Stock issued and outstanding
as of Aug. 5, 2008.

Of the 12,515,950 shares:

   (1) 14,750 are subject to stock options which are currently
       exercisable or exercisable within 60 days; and

   (2) 12,500,000 shares of Class B Common Stock are held under
       four separate trusts, each with 3,125,000 shares and
       different income beneficiaries.  

Mr. Barnes, William B. McClatchy, William Ellery McClatchy and
William K. Coblentz share joint voting and investment control with
respect to these trusts.  

Mr. Barnes is currently a director of The McClatchy Company,
having served in this capacity since 2000.  In this role,  Mr.
Barnes is actively involved in managing the business and affairs
of The McClatchy Company and may suggest or, from time to time,
approve or authorize, plans or proposals.

                   About The McClatchy Company

Headquartered in Sacramento, California, The McClatchy Company
(NYSE: MNI) -- http://www.mcclatchy.com/-- is the third largest   
newspaper company in the United States, with 30 daily newspapers,
approximately 50 non-dailies, and direct marketing and direct mail
operations.  McClatchy also operates leading local websites in
each of its markets.  McClatchy-owned newspapers include The Miami
Herald, The Sacramento Bee, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, The
Kansas City Star, the Charlotte Observer, and The (Raleigh) News &
Observer.

McClatchy also owns a portfolio of premium digital assets,
including 14.4% of CareerBuilder, an online job site, and 25.6% of
Classified Ventures, a newspaper industry partnership that offers
the auto website, cars.com, and the rental site, apartments.com.

At June 29, 2008, the company's consolidated balance sheet showed
$3.7 billion in total assets, $3.3 billion in total liabilities,
and $382.1 million in total stockholders' equity.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 19, Moody's
Investors Service downgraded The McClatchy Company's Corporate
Family and Probability of Default ratings to B2 from Ba3, the
ratings on the senior unsecured notes to Caa1 from B1, and the
rating on the guaranteed bank facility to Ba2 from Ba1.  The
rating outlook is negative.  The downgrade reflects Moody's
expectation that ongoing significant declines in advertising
revenue will continue to pressure EBITDA -- leading to an increase
in leverage and heightened risk of a credit facility covenant
violation.  Moody's anticipates McClatchy's free cash flow
generation and the modest bank leverage will allow the company to
obtain an amendment if necessary, but an increase in the interest
rate spread and tighter non-financial covenants are likely to
result, which would reduce financial flexibility.

The TCR also said The McClatchy Co. will be laying off about 1,150
employees or 10% of its work force; and cutting its dividend by
50%.

The TCR, citing a Dow Jones report, said McClatchy previously
fired about 1,400 workers to save $70 million yearly and had cut
about 13% of its workforce between the end of 2006 and April 2007.

On July 16, 2008, the TCR reported that Douglas McIntyre of 24/7
Wall Street said McClatchy could hit debt service problems that
could force the company to sell properties or file for Chapter 11
protection.  According to the report, McClatchy is one of the
companies that are at high risk of not making it another year due
to the big debt loads it took in buying newspaper properties and
seeing operating income chopped by falling sales.


MCCLATCHY CO: Gary Pruitt Steps Down From 5 Trusts
--------------------------------------------------
Gary B. Pruitt voluntarily resigned on September 3, 2008, as a co-
trustee of each of separate trusts established for the benefit of
McClatchy family members.  A successor co-trustee was named.  As a
result, Mr. Pruitt ceased to be a beneficial owner of more than 5%
of McClatchy Common Stock.

Mr.  Pruitt became one of four co-trustees of five separate trusts
established for the benefit of McClatchy family members on May 14,
2003.  On January 3, 2004, the beneficiary of one of the five
trusts for the benefit of McClatchy family members died and on
March 1, 2004, the shares of Class B Common Stock held by the
trust were distributed in equal shares to the four remaining
trusts.  Each of the five trusts contained 2,500,000 shares of
Class B Common Stock.  As a result of the distribution from the
fifth trust to the four remaining trusts, each of the four trusts
now contains 3,125,000 shares of Class B Common Stock.  Subject to
the terms of the Stockholders' Agreement dated as of September 17,
1987, each holder of Class B Common Stock has the right to convert
Class B Common Stock into Class A Common Stock on a one-for-one
basis.  

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Mr.
Pruitt said the aggregate number of shares of McClatchy Common
Stock he beneficially owned is 658,934 which include 658,934
shares of Class A Common Stock, including stock options and
restricted stock subject to a right of repurchase.  The percentage
of Common Stock beneficially owned by Mr. Pruitt is approximately
1.2%, based on a total of 57,384,516 shares of Class A Common
Stock issued and outstanding as of August 5, 2008.  Of the 658,934
shares, 582,500 shares are subject to stock options which are
currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days and 52,500
shares represent shares of restricted stock which are subject to a
right of repurchase in favor of McClatchy.

MICROMET INC: Notifies NASDAQ on Listing Rule Breach
----------------------------------------------------
RTT News reports that Micromet Inc. has appointed board member
Peter Johann as a member of the company's audit committee  to
succeed Barclay Phillips, who resigned to assume the post of Chief
Financial Officer of the company.

Following Johann's appointment, Micromet regained compliance with
the NASDAQ Stock Market, according to the report.

On Sept. 5, Micromet disclosed in a Securities and Exchange
Commission filing that it notified The NASDAQ Stock Market on
Sept. 4, 2008, that, as a result of the resignation of Mr.
Phillips as a member of the Company's Board of Directors and its
audit committee effective as of Aug. 29, 2008, the Company's Audit
Committee had only two independent directors and therefore was no
longer in compliance with NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4350(d)(2)(A).

The Company subsequently informed NASDAQ that the Board instructed
the nominating & corporate governance committee to review the
composition of all board committees and to propose to the board
whether to fill the vacancy on the audit committee with a current
board member or whether to initiate a search process to identify a
qualified candidate to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of

                       Going Concern Doubt

The company disclosed in its Form 10-Q for the second quarter of
2008, that as of June 30, 2008, it had an accumulated deficit of
$179.4 million, and that it expects to continue to incur
substantial, and possibly increasing, operating losses for the
next several years.  These conditions create substantial doubt
about our ability to continue as a going concern.

The company is continuing its efforts in research and development,
preclinical studies and clinical trials of its product candidates.
These efforts, and obtaining requisite regulatory approval prior
to commercialization, will require substantial expenditures.  Once
requisite regulatory approval has been obtained, substantial
additional financing will be required to manufacture, market and
distribute its products in order to achieve a level of revenues
adequate to support its cost structure.  

Management believes it has sufficient resources to fund its
required expenditures into the second quarter of 2009, without
considering any potential milestone payments that it may receive
under current or future collaborations, or any future capital
raising transactions or drawdowns from the committed equity
financing facility (CEFF) with Kingsbridge Capital Limited.  

At June 30, 2008, the company's consolidated balance sheet showed
$48.3 million in total assets, $36.3 million in total liabilities,
and $12.0 million in total stockholders' equity.

MIDISTEM LAB: Inks Third Amended License Agreement with ICM
-----------------------------------------------------------
Medistem Laboratories, Inc. disclosed in a Securities and Exchange
Commission filing that it entered into a Third Amended and
Restated License Agreement with the Institute for Cellular
Medicine.  

The Third Amendment amends the previous license agreement with ICM
and has the effect of:

   (i) expanding the territory covered by the license agreement to
       include Mexico and all of Central America, South America,
       and the Caribbean; and

  (ii) revising the royalty rate from 20% of ICM's gross revenues
       during the term of the agreement to a fully paid royalty in
       the amount of $1,000,000 plus 560,000 shares of the
       Company's common stock, with such shares being transferred
       by entities controlled by Dr. Neil H. Riordan, the
       Company's Chairman of the Board and majority stockholder.  

ICM paid $600,000 of the cash portion of the royalty payment upon
signing of the Third Amendment and will pay the remaining $400,000
in eight monthly installments of $50,000 each.  This amendment
also satisfies all outstanding loans and other amounts due from
ICM.  Medistem estimates that the value of the consideration
received exceeds the value of existing amounts due from ICM by
over $900,000.  

>From its inception in 2005 to June 30, 2008, Medistem earned
approximately $507,000 in royalties from the license agreement
with ICM.  The Company's Board of Directors approved the Third
Amendment to reduce its dependence on revenue streams beyond its
control and to provide immediate liquidity to enable the Company
to accelerate its research and development activities.  Because of
his controlling ownership interest in ICM, Dr. Riordan abstained
from voting on the Board of Directors' decision to approve the
Third Amendment.

MARTY'S SHOES: Will Close 47 Stores & Liquidate Operations
----------------------------------------------------------
Marty's Shoes Inc. will close all of its 47 stores in New Jersey,
New York, and Connecticut and liquidate operations, Joan Verdon at
Northjersey.com reports, citing documents the company filed in  
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

Northjersey.com relates liquidation sales started last month.  
Most of Marty's Shoes's 10 stores in North Jersey are expected to
close by October, the report says.  David P. Willis at APP.com
reports that the going-out-of-business sales for all of the stores
are expected to finish by Nov. 15.

Court documents indicate that Marty's President and Chief
Executive Officer John Adams attributed the firm's failure to
tough economic conditions, excess inventory and a poorly executed
management change in 2006, Northjersey.com says.  Mr. Adams helped
Martin Samowitz found Marty's Shoes in 1974 and was the company's
president until management was changed in 2006.  The new
management tried to increase sales through new store openings and
by remodeling existing stores until an economic slump hit shoe
retailers last year.  The new management was removed and Mr. Adams
returned as CEO and president.  

Marty Shoes -- http://www.martyshoes.com-- mainly sells athletic  
footwear, including brands Adidas and Reebok.  It has been
operating 60 stores in 4 states for more than 30 years.

The company filed for Chapter 11 protection on Sept. 12, 2008
(Bankr. D.Del. Case No. 08-12131).  Kevin Scott Mann, Esq., at
Cross & Simon, LLC, represents the Debtor in its restructuring
effort.  The company listed assets of between $10 million and
$50 million and debts of between $10 million and $50 million when

MORTGAGES LTD: Fund Investors Seek Court Representation
-------------------------------------------------------
Andrew Johnson at The Arizona Republic reports that 50 investors
of a Value-to-Loan fund that Mortgages Ltd. managed are asking for
court representation in the company's bankruptcy case.

According to The Arizona Republic, the Hon. Randolph Haines of the  
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona granted a motion
at a hearing on Wednesday clarifying that an existing investor
committee does not represent the Value-to-Loan investors, who
pumped almost $8 million into the fund.  

Maricopa County property records indicate that Mortgages had as
many as 3,000 investors at one time who provided almost
$1 billion for loans made to real-estate developers, The Arizona
Republic says.  According to the report, some investors put money
directly into specific loans, receiving an interest in the loans
and a deed of trust on the properties.  Others invested in
separate funds collectively called "opportunity funds," which held
interests in multiple loans, the report states.

The Arizona Republic states that Valley bankruptcy attorney Dale
Schian said that some of those investors have asked him to get a
committee formed to represent them.

Jonathan Hess, an attorney for the U.S. Trustee in Phoenix, said
that the office will still decide on whether it would appoint a
separate committee to represent those investors, The Arizona
Republic relates.

According to The Arizona Republic, Mortgages will likely oppose
the formation of a second investors committee because the company
would have to pay for the group's legal fees, which is standard
bankruptcy procedure.  Morgages already has to pay attorneys fees
for the existing investors committee and an unsecured creditors
committee, the report says.

The Arizona Republic reports that the court has set an Oct. 7
deadline for the filing of a claim that outlines how much money
they believe Mortgages owes them.  The Value-to-Loan investors
must know who will represent them before Oct. 7 so they can
determine whether they should file claims, the Arizona Republic
states, citing Schian and Cathy Reece, the counsel for the
existing investor committee.

Mortgages will submit its reorganization plan by Oct. 22, The
Arizona Republic states.

pointed to the company's recurring losses, negative cash flows

NEWARK GROUP: Moody's Junks Sub. Debt Rating on Weak Performance
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the Corporate Family Rating
of The Newark Group to B3 from B2, downgraded the senior
subordinated notes rating to Caa1 from B3, and changed the rating
outlook to negative.  Concurrently, the Speculative Grade
Liquidity rating was lowered to SGL-4 from SGL-3.  

These rating actions were driven by weak operating performance and
deteriorating credit metrics as a result of high recycled fiber
and energy costs, weaker demand for end products, and overcapacity
plaguing the industry, albeit moderating.  The contribution from
the company's international segment has only partially offset the
significant shortfalls realized in North American paperboard and
converting operations.  The negative outlook reflects the
volatility of key input costs, the general macroeconomic outlook
for both the US and Europe, and industry-wide trends within the US
housing industry that impact demand for certain of TNG's products.

The downgrade in the liquidity rating reflects Moody's expectation
that TNG's liquidity profile will be weak over the next twelve
months.  Operating cash flow may not fully cover working capital
needs, capital expenditures, and debt amortization requirements.  
As a result, Moody's anticipates TNG will further increase its
reliance on the $85 million asset-based revolving credit facility
(unrated by Moody's), leaving minimal availability for unplanned
operating shortfalls.  After consideration of the borrowing base
calculation, the outstanding balance, letters of credit, and the
swap obligation, approximately $23 million was technically
available under the revolver at July 31, 2008.

However, because the fixed charge covenant ratio is measured if
availability falls below $10 million and TNG would not be in
compliance with this covenant should it be measured, effective
availability under the revolver was limited to about $13 million
at July 31, 2008.  The maximum senior leverage covenant in the
credit-linked facility was amended on August 12, 2008 to increase
the threshold through January 31, 2009.  While financial
flexibility has improved as a result of the amendment, the related
increase in the facility's pricing and term loan amortization
further pressures cash flow.

The B3 CFR reflects Moody's expectation that leverage, interest
coverage, and cash flow generation will continue to be weak over
the intermediate term despite some benefit from recent price
increases, retractions in input costs and cost reduction
initiatives implemented by management.  Moody's views recent
uncoated recycled board capacity reductions as positive, including
mill closures made by TNG, but remains cautious on the company's
pricing power with customers in light of potential declines in
demand and the volatility of input costs.  Any further
deterioration in liquidity or shortfall in revenue, margins or
cash flow as compared to expectations could lead to a downgrade.

The last rating action occurred on February 2, 2007 when Moody's
affirmed the B2 CFR and assigned a Ba3 to TNG's proposed
$90 million senior secured credit-linked facility.

Moody's downgraded these ratings (assessments):

  -- Corporate Family Rating, to B3 from B2
  -- Probability of Default Rating, to B3 from B2
  -- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, to SGL-4 from SGL-3
  -- $175 million senior subordinated notes due 2014, to Caa1
     (LGD5,75%) from B3 (LGD5,75%)

Moody's affirmed this rating (assessment):

  -- $90 million senior secured credit-linked facility due 2012,
     Ba3 (LGD2, 22% from LGD2, 23%)

The Newark Group Inc., headquartered in Cranford, New Jersey, is
an integrated producer of 100% recycled paperboard and paperboard
products in North America and Europe.  For the twelve months ended
July 31, 2008, the company generated revenues of just over
$1 billion.


NITROMED INC: Has Until March 16 to Regain Bid Price Compliance
---------------------------------------------------------------
NitroMed Inc. received a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market's
Listing Qualifications Department providing notification that, for
the last 30 consecutive business days, the bid price of NitroMed's
common stock has closed below the minimum $1.00 per share
requirement for continued inclusion on The NASDAQ Global Market
under NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 4450(a)(5), referred to as the
minimum bid price rule.

NASDAQ stated in such notification that, in accordance with NASDAQ
Marketplace Rule 4450(e)(2), NitroMed has 180 calendar days, or
until March 16, 2009, to regain compliance with the minimum bid
price rule.

The NASDAQ notification also states that if at any time before
March 16, 2009, the bid price of the company's common stock closes
at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive
business days, NASDAQ will provide written notification that the
company has achieved compliance with the minimum bid price rule,
although NASDAQ may, in its discretion, require that an issuer
maintain a bid price of in excess of $1.00 for a period in excess
of 10 days, but generally no more than 20 days, before determining
that it has demonstrated the ability to maintain long-term
compliance.  If NitroMed does not regain compliance with the
minimum bid price rule by March 16, 2009, NASDAQ will provide
written notification that the company's securities will be
delisted from The NASDAQ Global Market. At that time, NitroMed may
appeal NASDAQ's determination to delist the company's securities
to a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel.

Alternatively, in the event the delisting is based solely upon
non-compliance with the minimum bid price rule, NitroMed could
apply to transfer its securities to The NASDAQ Capital Market,
provided that NitroMed satisfies the requirements for initial
listing on such market set forth in NASDAQ Marketplace Rule
4310(c), other than the minimum bid price rule.  If the
application were approved and NitroMed otherwise maintains the
listing requirements for The NASDAQ Capital Market, other than the
minimum bid price requirement, NitroMed would be afforded the
remainder of The NASDAQ Capital Market's second 180 calendar day
grace period in order to regain compliance with the minimum bid
price rule.

OSAGE EXPLORATION: Ran Furman Quits as CFO to Focus on SEC Suit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Osage Exploration and Development Inc. disclosed in a Securities
and Exchange Commission filing on Sept. 8, 2008, that Ran H.
Furman resigned as Chief Financial Officer and as a member of the
Company's Board of Directors to focus on a pending civil complaint
filed against him by the Commission.

The Board of Directors has named Kim Bradford, President and Chief
Executive Officer of the Company, to serve as interim Chief
Financial Officer. Mr. Furman has indicated his willingness to
assist the Company during this period of transition and will
continue to serve the Company in a non-officer capacity, reporting
to Mr. Bradford.

On Sept. 4, 2008, the Commission filed a complaint in the United
States District Court for the Southern District of California
[Civil Action Case No. CV08-1620 WQH (RBB)] against Retail Pro,
Inc. (fka Island Pacific, Inc.), Barry M. Schecter, Ran H. Furman,
and Harvey Braun.

The Commission's complaint alleges that Mr. Schechter, the former
CEO, Mr. Furman, the former CFO, and Mr. Braun, another former
CEO, caused Island Pacific to improperly record and report
$3.9 million in revenue from a September 2003 barter transaction.  
As alleged in the complaint, the barter transaction had little
economic substance or business purpose and was entered into to
artificially inflate Island Pacific's revenues as reported in its
financial statements. The complaint further alleges that as a
result of improperly recognizing and reporting the $3.9 million as
revenue, Island Pacific overstated its revenues for the second
quarter of 2004, for the nine months ending the third quarter of
2004, and for the 2004 fiscal year.

The Commission's civil complaint also alleges that Island Pacific,
Inc., along with the other individual defendants, violated the
anti-fraud provisions of the federal securities laws, improperly
recognized revenue, falsified documents in an attempt to
demonstrate that the recognition of revenue from the barter
transaction was proper, and caused the company to report false
financial results.

The Commission's complaint seeks to:

   (1) enjoin the defendants from future violations of the
       securities laws;

   (2) require Mr. Schecter to disgorge any ill-gotten gains and
       pay prejudgment interest;

   (3) require all defendants to pay civil monetary penalties;

   (4) bar all defendants from serving as officers or directors of
       a public company; and

   (5) provide other appropriate relief.

PANACEA PARTNERS: De La Costa Restaurant Sold for $1.6MM
--------------------------------------------------------
Lorene Yue of Crain's Chicago Business reports that a federal
bankruptcy judge has approved the sale of De La Costa to a Chicago
restaurateur for $1.6 million.  De La Costa owned by Panacea

offered $1 million for the restaurant but raised its bid by

had been valued at roughly $2 million by the broker hired to find
a buyer, according to the report.

The sale's closing is contingent upon Dock 465 obtaining a liquor
license from the city, according to the report.

De La Costa in River East Plaza has remained open throughout the
entire bankruptcy process.

PEOPLE AGAINST DRUGS: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
----------------------------------------------------------------
Dawn McCarty and Jef Feeley of Bloomberg News report that People
Against Drugs Affordable Public Housing Agency filed for Chapter
11 bankruptcy protection on Sept. 17, 2008, in the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Texas (Case No. 08-34696).

The Debtor has spent, according to the report, "millions of
dollars" on a team in the Craftsman Truck Series sponsored by the
National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, Texas Attorney
General Greg Abbott, Esq.  The information was revealed in court
papers filed in June in the case Attorney General Greg Abbott v.
People Against Drugs Affordable Public Housing Agency, 88897,
Probate Court of Travis County, Texas (Austin).

The bankruptcy filing came after state officials in Texas asked a
judge to bar the Debtor from putting more money into the team and
to appoint a receiver to protect its assets, according to the
report.

The Debtor didn't provide an affidavit explaining what prompted
the bankruptcy filing, according to the report.

The charity gets its funding from an an apartment complex it rents
out partly to low-income tenants.  State officials claim that the
charity used the money it receives from the apartment complex to
fund activities of Green Light Racing instead of using it to
provide anti-drug messages or low-cost housing to the poor.

Reportedly, Texas investigators also found People Against Drugs
paid Mr. Christensen $102,000 a year as its executive director,
provided him with a car, and a $119,000 no-interest loan.

Mr. Christensen also used at least $94,000 of People Against
Drugs' money in his 2008 Republican primary campaign for a U.S.
House of Representatives seat, according to the report.  

Garland, Texas-based People Against Drugs Affordable Public
Housing Agency was a nonprofit founded in 1991 to help schools and
police highlight the dangers of drug abuse and to offer "gang-and-
drug free living environments," the report quotes what Texas state
officials said in a statement in June.

The Debtor listed assets between $10 million and $50 million and
debt between $10 million and $50 million in its bankruptcy filing.

QUALITY HOME: Creditor Shalom Rubanowitz Files Ch. 11 Plan
----------------------------------------------------------
The Law Offices of Shalom Rubanowitz, Inc., and investor Shalom
Rubanowitz, Esq. filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Central District of California a Chapter 11 Liquidation Plan in
Quality Home Loans and Golden State TD Investments, LLC's
bankruptcy cases.

The Law Offices of Shalom Rubanowitz, Inc. is an unsecured
creditor who performed prepetition and possibly post-petition
legal services for the Debtors.  Shalom Rubanowitz, Esq. is an
investor in the Debtor.

The Plan groups claims and interests in or against the Debtors
into six classes:

  Class             Type of Claim                          
  -----             -------------             
  Unclassified      Administrative Claims including Priority Tax
                    Claims
                
  Class 1           Secured Claims      

  Class 2           Investor Claims     

  Class 3           Unsecured Installment Obligations

  Class 4           General Unsecured Non-Priority Claims

  Class 5           Insider Claims          

  Class 6           Shareholders

Allowed administrative claims will be paid if full on the
effective date, from funds provided by the Debtor's business
operations.

Secured real estate claims under Class 1 will be paid in full upon
the close of real property sale escrows resulting from sales by
order of the Court.  However, if such business operations do not
provide for all or part of such payment, secured claims shall not
receive any funds on the effective date.

Investor claims under Class 2 will be paid in full upon the close
of real property sale escrows resulting from sales by order of the
Court.  However, if such business operations do not provide for
all or part of such payment, after Class 1 claims have been paid,
Class 2 claims shall not receive any funds on the effective date.  
Investor claims may, through Court order or otherwise, become
unsecured creditors of the Debtors, and fall into Class 4.

Class 3 Claims will be paid their allowed claims from the business
operations or assets of the Debtor, after Class 1 and Class 2
claimants have been paid.

The general unsecured creditors belonging to Class 4 will be paid
1% to 100% of their allowed claims from the business operations of
the Debtor, depending on the outcome of marshaling all the asets
of all related entities.

Insider claims under Class 5 shall not receive any distribution
unless funds remain after satisfying administrative claims and
claimants under Classes 1, 2, 3 and 4.  The insider claimants
shall receive 50% of all such remaining funds.

Class 6 claimants shall receive nothing unless funds remain after
all other classes have been paid in full.  They shall receive 50%
of all such remaining funds.

                          Plan Execution

The Plan provides that part or all of the real and personal
property of the Debtors will be sold to the highest bidder, free
and clear of all liens, at a hearing to be determined by the
Court.  Opening bids shall be such sum that will pay in full all
administrative claims and Class 1 and 2 claimants only.  If no
bidders are found for all the assets, there will be further
auctions in the Court for the sale of certain property.   The
creditors in any class may credit bid on the real property, up to
the full amount of their debt.  Any unsold personal property items
shall be liquidated by the Chapter 11 trustee for the benefit of
unsecured creditors.   

If all of the assets, real and personal, are sold to the highest
bidders, secured claims shall first be paid out of sale escrows to
be established by the Chapter 11 Trustee.  The balance of the
funds, net of escrow costs, shall be distributed first to allowed
tax claims, next to allowed administrative claims, and last to
unsecured creditors  and then investors up to 100% of their
claims.  Remaining proceeds from the sale shall be distributed to
the insiders and shareholders pro rata.  

Under the Plan, Mr. Rubanowitz retains the right to modify the
plan in accordance with the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.

RCS-CHANDLER: Wants to Employ Marcus as Broker for Sale
-------------------------------------------------------
The Arizona Republic reports that Elevation Chandler's owner, Jeff
Cline, asks permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Arizona to hire Marcus & Millichap Real Estate
Investment Services as broker in the company's sale.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on June 2, 2008, Mr.
Cline disclosed at a May 27, 2008, hearing that he has a potential
buyer for Elevation Chandler.  Arizona Republic relates that Mr.
Cline informed the hearing examiner and trial attorney for the

could reorganize and have the ability to sell the property.  
Michael R. Walker, Esq., at Schian Walker P.L.C., the Debtor's
counsel, however, told Ms. Chan they don't have a definitive date
yet as to when the property would be sold.

The Arizona Republic relates that Mr. Cline said that he would pay
Marcus a 2% commission.  The report says that Mr. Cline wants to
sell Elevation Chandler for $40 million.

SAINTS MEDICAL: Fitch Affirms 'BB+' Rating on $54MM Revenue Bonds
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirms its rating at 'BB+' on approximately $54
million Massachusetts Health and Educational Facilities Authority
revenue bonds (Saints Medical Center), series 1993A.  The Rating
Outlook is Stable.

The affirmation reflects Saints Medical Center's (Saints;
formerly, Saints Memorial Medical Center) adequate liquidity for
the rating level as well as a new strategic plan, which includes
expanding primary care services to areas outside of Lowell.  At
year-end fiscal 2007 (Sept. 30), Saints had 78.2 days cash on hand
and a cash-to-debt ratio of 46.4%, both slightly above Fitch's non
investment grade category medians.  Operating profitability has
declined since fiscal 2004, and Saints is expecting an operating
loss in fiscal 2008.  Through the first nine months of fiscal
2008, Saints had a negative 1.5% operating margin, with an
operating loss of $1.5 million.

However, Fitch believes that this operating loss was affected more
by one time expenses, including $1 million in subsidy payments to
specialty groups and to investments in a strategic plan, than
operating deficiencies.  Saints has recruited 23 new physicians in
the past few years; 11 of which are practicing at sites outside
the City of Lowell.

The Stable Outlook reflects Fitch's view that the strategic
initiatives set in place by management will yield increases in
utilization and revenues in the near term and that Saints will
narrow its operating losses in fiscal 2009.  While Saints is
expected to end fiscal year 2008 with an operating loss, Fitch
believes that Saints will return to positive operating margins in
fiscal 2010.  Saints is budgeting for a loss in fiscal 2009.  

A key rating driver for Saints will be its ability to meet the
2009 budget.  A failure to narrow operating losses in fiscal 2009
could result in negative rating pressure on Saints.  Additionally,
Saints is actively seeking a partnership with another hospital or
hospital system outside of Lowell.  Fitch views this move by
Saints positively as a partnership, especially with larger health
system, could provide Saints with key resources and significantly
enhance Saints' regional competitiveness.

Ongoing credit concerns remain Saints' high debt burden, low debt
service coverage, and competitive service area.  At fiscal year-
end 2007, Saints' maximum annual debt coverage by EBITDA was 1.6
times and indicative of its high debt burden.  Lowell General
Hospital (LGH; rated 'BBB' with a Negative Outlook by Fitch) is
located very close to Saints is its main competitor.  Saint's
strategic focus on growing outside of Lowell where a sizable
patient base exists should help offset direct competition with LGH
while growing the patient base of the medical center.

Saints operates 163 licensed acute-care beds in Lowell,
Massachusetts, approximately 30 miles northwest of Boston.  In
fiscal 2007, total operating revenue was $132.8 million.  Saints,
the sole obligated group member, is part of the Saints Health
System.  Quarterly disclosure to Fitch has been timely, and
includes a balance sheet, income statement and utilization
statistics on a quarterly basis.  However, Fitch notes that a
discussion and analysis is not provided on a quarterly basis.


SEARS HOLDINGS: Fitch Cuts Long-Term Issuer Default Rating to B+
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded these ratings:

Sears Holdings Corporation
  -- Long-term Issuer Default Rating to 'B+' from 'BB';
  -- Secured bank facility to 'BB+/RR1' from 'BBB-'.

Sears, Roebuck and Co.
  -- Long-term IDR to 'B+' from 'BB'.

Sears Roebuck Acceptance Corp.
  -- Long-term IDR to 'B+' from 'BB'.

Sears DC Corp.
  -- Long-term IDR to 'B+' from 'BB'.

Kmart Holding Corporation (Kmart)
  -- Long-term IDR to 'B+' from 'BB'.

In addition, Fitch has affirmed the senior unsecured and short-
term ratings and assigned Recovery Ratings as:

Sears Holdings Corporation
  -- Senior unsecured notes at 'BB/RR1'.

Sears, Roebuck and Co.
  -- Senior unsecured notes at 'BB/RR1'.

Sears Roebuck Acceptance Corp.
  -- Senior unsecured notes at 'BB/RR1';
  -- Short-term IDR at 'B';
  -- Commercial paper at 'B'.

Sears DC Corp.
  -- Senior unsecured notes at 'BB/RR1'.

Approximately $3.6 billion of total debt was outstanding as of
Aug. 2, 2008.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The rating actions reflect significant pressure on operating
margins on negative comparable store sales trends and continued
share repurchases in the current challenging operating environment
leading to weaker credit metrics.  In addition, the longer term
retail strategy remains unclear, particularly given the announced
changes to Holdings' organizational structure earlier this year,
which could lead to operational disruption in the near term.  This
is balanced by Holdings' broad market presence in the moderate
department store, hardline and discounter segments, strong
proprietary brands, and adequate liquidity position.

The company continues to experience negative comparable store
sales at both its Sears and Kmart stores.  Sears, with sales of
$27.3 billion in the latest 12 months  ended Aug. 2, 2008, has
posted declines in comparable store sales for the past eight
years, reflecting competitive pressures and inconsistent
merchandising execution.  The recent deceleration in comparable
store sales is being compounded by overall weakness in apparel and
home-related products.  Kmart's sales, which totaled $17 billion
in the LTM period, stabilized in 2005-2006 following three years
of sharp declines, but have been on a decline since then even as
its discounter peers report positive comparable store sales.  

The company's challenge will be to generate longer term sales and
earnings growth at both Sears and Kmart in the face of growing
competition within the department store sector and continued share
gains by discounters and big-box specialty retailers.

With a domestic comparable store sales decline of approximately
7.5% in the first half of 2008 (8.6% in the first quarter and 6.2%
in the second quarter), operating income declined to $56 million
from $657 million in the comparable year ago period.  As a result,
LTM credit metrics have deteriorated with adjusted debt/EBITDAR at
3.9 times versus 3x times at the end of 2007 and 2.45x at the end
of 2006.  LTM EBITDAR/interest plus rents decreased to 2.4x from
2.8x at the end of 2007 and 3.5x at the end of 2006.  Credit
metrics are weaker in spite of the reduction in long-term debt
over time.  While Sears is taking steps to control expenses and
has reduced comparable inventory by approximately 5% at the end of
the second quarter, Fitch expects leverage could increase further
on continued sales and profit deterioration.

Current liquidity remains solid, supported by a cash balance of
$1.5 billion and $2.2 billion of availability remaining under its
$4 billion credit facility due March 2010.  However, future
liquidity levels could decline given lower cash balances and the
potential for reduced excess availability if the bank facility is
downsized.  Cash balances have declined from $4 billion at the end
of 2006 due to significant share repurchases of $2.9 billion in
2007 and approximately $0.5 billion in the first half of 2008.   
Domestic cash balances have declined from $3.3 billion to $771
million at the end of the second quarter.

The issue ratings shown above are derived from the IDR and the
relevant recovery rating.  Holdings' $4 billion senior secured
credit facility is rated 'BB+/RR1', indicating outstanding
(90-100%) recovery prospects in a distressed scenario.  Holdings
provides a downstream guarantee for SRAC and Kmart's borrowings
under this facility, and there are cross-guarantees between SRAC

SEMGROUP LP: Gets Final OK to Secure $175 Million DIP Financing
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Brendan L. Shannon of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware authorized SemGroup LP and its debtor-
affiliates, on a final basis, to obtain $175,000,000 in
postpetition financing, to provide for their working capital, and
for other general corporate purposes.  The Court previously
granted interim authority for the Debtors to obtain $150,000,000
from the proposed $250,000,000 of DIP Loans from Bank of America
N.A.

Prior to the Final DIP Hearing, the Debtors filed with the Court
an amended DIP Credit Agreement they entered into with Bank of
America, N.A., as administrative agent for the DIP Lenders, to,
among other things:

   (a) reduce the maximum DIP Loans available to the Debtors from
       $250,000,000 to $175,000,000;

   (b) incorporate a trading protocol, which provides that only
       $70,000,000 of the Aggregate Commitment can be used for
       hedging purposes in accordance with a trading protocol
       approved by the DIP Agent and the requisite DIP Lenders;
       and

   (c) require the Borrowers to maintain not less than
       $225,000,000 of cash at the end of each business day.

A blacklined version of the Amended DIP Agreement is available
for free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/semgroup_amendeddip.pdf

In light of the DIP Credit Agreement amendments, the Debtors also
filed an amended 13-Week Budget commencing from the week ending
September 12, 2008, to the week ending December 26, 2008.  A
full-text copy of the Amended Budget is available for free at
http://bankrupt.com/misc/semgroup_amendedbudget.pdf

Judge Shannon found that the Debtors have an immediate need to
obtain the DIP Financing and to use the prepetition collateral,
including the Cash Collateral, to preserve the value of the
Debtors' businesses, make payroll, and satisfy their working
capital.  The terms of the DIP Agreement are fair and reasonable,
and reflect the Debtors' exercise of prudent business judgment,
Judge Shannon ruled.

Judge Shannon noted that the Debtors were unable to obtain
financing on more favorable terms from other sources aside from
the DIP lenders.  The Debtors were also not able to obtain
adequate unsecured credit under Section 503(b)(1) of the
Bankruptcy Code as an administrative expense, nor adequate
secured credit under Sections 364(c)(1), 364(c)(2), and 364(c)(3)
without granting DIP liens and superiority claims.

Except to the extent set forth in respect of a "carve-out," the
DIP Obligations will constitute allowed senior administrative
claims against the Debtors, with priority over all administrative
expenses, adequate protection claims and other claims, whether
those expenses or claims may become secured.  The Superpriority
Claims will be payable from, and have recourse to, the
prepetition and postpetition property of the Debtors, excluding
the avoidance actions and their proceeds.

The Carve-Out is:

     (i) all fees required to be paid to the Clerk of the Court
         and to the Office of the U.S. Trustee, plus interest at
         the statutory rate; and

    (ii) following a notice by the DIP Agent in the event of a
         default under the DIP Agreement, the payment of accrued
         and unpaid professional fees and expenses not exceeding
         $4,000,000, incurred by the Debtors and any statutory
         committee appointed in the bankruptcy cases, and
         allowed by the Court.

All objections to the entry of the Final DIP Order that have not
been withdrawn or settled are overruled.

The Final DIP Order provides that there will not be any
presumption that (x) expenditures of Cash Collateral and proceeds
of DIP Financing, in accordance with the Agreed Budget does or
does not constitute Collateral Diminution; provided that every
dollar of Cash Collateral used to complete the White Cliffs
Pipeline project will result in a dollar for dollar Collateral
Diminution entitled to adequate protection.

As additional adequate protection, the Final Order requires the
Debtors to comply with these terms with respect to the White
Cliffs Project:

   (a) By no later than October 15, 2008, the Loan Parties will
       file a motion with regard to:

          -- a sale of either (x) all of the Debtors' equity
             interests in White Cliffs Pipeline, LLC, or (y)
             substantially all of the assets of White Cliffs; and

          -- the establishment of bidding and related proceedings
             to be employed in connection with an auction with
             respect to the sale of the Debtors' equity interests
             in or substantially all of the assets of White
             Cliffs;

   (b) By no later than November 21, 2008, the White Cliffs
       Auction will have been conducted in accordance with the
       bidding procedures;

   (c) Debtor SemCrude Pipeline, L.L.C., will continue to manage
       the day-to-day physical operations of White Cliffs,
       subject to the oversight and supervision of PE Pipeline
       Services, LLC;

   (d) The Debtors will provide the Prepetition Administrative
       Agent with access to (a) books, records, permits, and
       contracts, (b) bank accounts, (c) employees, officers,
       consultants, and advisors, and (d) the physical facilities
       of White Cliffs; and

   (e) The Debtors will provide the Prepetition Administrative
       Agent, the DIP Agent, the DIP Lenders, and the Prepetition
       Secured Lenders with regular reports with respect to the
       White Cliffs Project, including weekly budgets.

The Final Order further provides that Net Cash Proceeds from a
sale, lease or other disposition of the Collateral, other than
the New Equity Collateral Proceeds and the Litigation Proceeds,
will be paid to and held by the Prepetition Administrative Agent.

The Final Order also provides that following the indefeasible
payment in full in cash of all DIP Obligations, the full cash
collateralization of all outstanding letters of credit issued
under the DIP Documents and the termination of the Commitments,
the Debtors will pay in cash to the Prepetition Administrative
Agent all proceeds from a sale, lease or disposition of the New
Equity Collateral, after deducting any direct costs incurred by
the Debtors.

"Our objection was overruled, but the judge made it clear that
this isn't the end of the case," Bloomberg News quoted the
counsel representing the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors, Susheel Kirpalani, Esq., at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart
Oliver & Hedges, LLP, in New York, as saying.

According to the report, Lisa Donahue, the Debtors' chief
restructuring officer, testified during the September 17, 2008,
hearing on the DIP Motion, that the terms of the DIP Facility
"were stricter than she liked."

SEMGROUP LP: Gets Final Approval to Access BofA Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware authorized
SemGroup LP and its debtor-affiliates, on a final basis, to use
the Cash Collateral, and all other prepetition collateral, under
the DIP Agreement to provide adequate protection to prepetition
secured parties, and to ensure sufficient working capital and
liquidity to maintain the value of the Debtors' estates.

Prior to the hearing on the Cash Collateral Motion, the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors asked the Court to permit the
Debtors, as a precondition to operating as debtors-in-possession,
to make use of their Cash Collateral securing their prepetition
loans in accordance with a budget.

The Budget, which was filed under seal for proprietary and
confidentiality reasons, provides for the the Debtors to use the
Cash Collateral to continue to pay their employees, maintain
business relationships with their customers in the ordinary
course of business, and satisfy critical operating and
restructuring expenses.  The current budget, according to the
Committee's counsel, Susheel Kirpalani, Esq., at Quinn Emanuel
Urquhart Oliver & Hedges LLP, in New York, allows for a modest
inventory accumulation in Debtors SemStream L.P. and
SemMaterials, L.P., to allow these business to "keep their heads
above water" as going concerns.

At a minimum, the Debtors require the use of $20 million in Cash
Collateral on an interim basis, and $70 million on a final basis,
in part to begin procuring seasonal inventory to operate
SemStream and SemMaterials, Mr. Kirpalani told Judge Shannon.  
After the Creditors' Committee has been afforded the opportunity
to discuss the current Cash Collateral budget with the Debtors,
the Committee reserves the right to seek use of additional Cash
Collateral that may be necessary to buy inventory and lock in
profit on valuable storage, gathering, and process assets.

Time, Mr. Kirpalani asserted, is particularly of the essence with
respect to SemStream, which generally builds inventory in fall
and sells as prices and demand for heating fuel peak in the
winter months.  Due to the narrowing window of opportunity in
this regard, interim use of Cash Collateral is necessary to avoid
the immediate and irreparable harm that the Debtors' would suffer
if this narrowing business opportunity were to close, the
Committee asserts.

The Committee also sought approval of a hedging protocol, that
was rejected by Bank of America N.A.  Mr. Kirpalani asserted that
approval of the Hedging Protocol as part of the Cash Collateral
Budget is necessary to enable the responsible hedging of existing
inventory and facilitate the purchase and hedging of new
inventory and locking in profits on the Debtors' assets.

A full-text copy of the Hedging Protocol is available for free at
http://bankrupt.com/misc/semgroup_commtradingprotocol.pdf

Mr. Kirpalani further argued that interim use of the Cash
Collateral is necessary to avoid the immediate and irreparable
harm that the Debtors would suffer should construction efforts at
the White Cliffs Project cease.

The Committee also argued that use of the Cash Collateral is
better than using the DIP Financing.  The Committee reveals that,
as of Sept. 15, 2008, the Debtors have accumulated in excess of
$450,000,000 in Cash Collateral.  If permitted to use that cash to
buy and build inventory, the Debtors could harvest the value of
their gathering, processing, distribution, and storage assets, and
thereby generate significantly positive EBITDA.

Mr. Kirpalani, on behalf of the Committee, told the Court that
upon entry of the proposed Cash Collateral Order, the Debtors
will be required under the defaulted DIP Credit Agreement to cash
collateralize $70 million in letters of credit at 105%.  

The Committee asked the Court to schedule October 1, 2008, as the
hearing date for final approval of the Debtors' use of Cash
Collateral, and direct the Debtors to provide to the Committee's
investment banker all documents considered by the Debtors'
financial advisor in valuing the Unencumbered Assets.

BofA, administrative agent for the DIP Lenders, counter-argued
that the Debtors have a real need for the DIP Facility,
particularly with respect to the issuance of letters of credit to
provide Court-ordered adequate assurance of payment to
postpetition suppliers of products and services to the Debtors.  

Moreover, BofA asserted that there is nothing sinister about the
Debtors' "eye-popping cash build-up" that necessitates an in
camera hearing.  BofA related that the Debtors' crude and fuel
businesses have been effectively self-liquidating due to lack of
support from suppliers and the intensive capital requirements for
buying product for resale.  The cash generated from these
liquidations constitutes the proceeds of the prepetition lenders'
collateral, mainly receivables and inventory.

The DIP Facility is nevertheless required to fund the Debtors'
other ongoing businesses to maximize the going concern value of
those businesses, BofA maintained.  BofA added that the
construction of the White Cliffs Project needs financing because
it is being marketed as a completed project.

Furthermore, BofA told the Court that the DIP Lenders and the
Debtors are in discussions concerning the use of cash draws and
letters of credit under the DIP Facility to fund a hedging
protocol that will afford the Debtors appropriate flexibility to
hedge inventory purchases by certain of their ongoing business
units.

BofA also pointed out that the Committee places into the public
record recent prior misinformed views of the proposed DIP
Facility and the Debtors' businesses.  BofA said it has made
significant concessions to address the Committee's previous
objections to the DIP Facility, including the concession to
extend the DIP Facility's term to nine months, extend to 90 days
the Committee's investigative period, increase the funds
available to conduct that investigation to $250,000, and agreeing
to the Committee's standing to sue.

Shandong Zhouyuan Seed and Nursery Co. Ltd., filed Sept. 8, 2008,
an amended annual report for the year ended Dec. 31, 2007, with
the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.  The annual report
was originally filed on April 15, 2008.

The company's management evaluated the effectiveness of the design
and operation of its disclosure controls and procedures.  Based
upon the evaluation, its chief executive officer and its chief
financial officer have concluded that for the year ended Dec. 31,
2007, the company's disclosure controls and procedures were
effective.

Management also revised the Consolidated Financial Statements to
reflect the business combination between Infolink Pacific Limited
and Zhouyuan as reorganization of entities under common control.

A copy of the consent of the company's auditors, Kempisty &
Company CPAs PC, was filed with the SEC together with the amended
documents.

Shandong Zhouyuan posted US$843,695 in net losses on US$702,602 in

                        Going Concern Doubt

Kempisty & Company CPAs PC in New York expressed substantial doubt
about Shandong Zhouyuan Seed & Nursery Co. Ltd.'s ability to
continue as a going concern after auditing the company's
consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31,
2007.  The auditing firm said that the company had net losses of
US$813,341 and US$322,586 for the years ended Dec. 31, 2007, and
2006, respectively, and an accumulated deficit of US$2,636,401 at
Dec. 31, 2007.  The auditing firm added that the company was in
default on its bank loans as of Dec. 31, 2007, totaling
US$1,764,834, as of Dec. 31, 2007.

Management said the recoverability of a major portion of the
company's recorded asset is dependent upon its continued
operations, which in turn is dependent upon the its ability to
raise additional capital, obtain financing and succeed in its
future operations.  The financial statements do not include any
adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of
recorded asset amounts or amounts and classification of
liabilities that might be necessary should the company be unable
to continue as a going concern.

The company is actively pursuing additional funding and a
potential merger or acquisition candidate and strategic partners,
which would enhance stockholders' investment.

SHUMATE INDUSTRIES: Sells Machine Works Unit to American Int'l
--------------------------------------------------------------
Shumate Industries Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary Shumate
Machine Works, Inc., entered on Aug. 29, 2008, into an asset
purchase agreement with American International Industries, Inc.,
pursuant to which American International agreed to acquire
substantially all of the assets and assume certain liabilities of
Machine Works.  The Purchase Price will be $5,000,000 plus
assumption of certain assumed liabilities.  

The Purchaser will pay $5,000,000 by either:

      (i) federal wire transfer;

     (ii) assumption of our term notes with Stillwater National
          Bank and Trust Company in an amount not to exceed
          $5,000,000; or

    (iii) a combination of (i) and (ii) totaling $5,000,000.

The Purchaser will assume certain liabilities.

The Purchase Agreement also contains a purchase price adjustment
whereby if the Assumed Liabilities exceed the accounts receivable,
inventory, cash and pre-paid assets, then the company will issue
Purchaser that number of shares of Common Stock equal to the
Negative Working Capital up to a maximum of $700,000 of Common
Stock (based on the market price of the company's Common Stock on
the Closing Date of determination, provided that such price will
not exceed $0.40).

The transaction is subject to certain closing conditions,
including receipt by Purchaser from Stillwater National Bank and
Trust Company of:

      the Purchase Agreement and the transactions contemplated
      thereby, including, without limitation, the payment of the
      Purchase Price;

                       Going Concern Doubt

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 13, 2008,
Houston-based Malone & Bailey, PC, expressed substantial doubt on
Shumate Industries Inc.'s ability to continue as a going concern
after auditing the company's consolidated financial statements for
the years ended Dec. 31, 2007, and 2006.  The auditing firm stated
that Shumate requires significant amount of cash in its operations
and does not have sufficient cash to fund its operations for the
next 12 months.

As of June 30, 2008, Shumate Industries Inc.'s consolidated
balance sheet showed $4.9 million in total assets and $12.4
million in total liabilities, resulting in a $7.4 million in
stockholders' deficit.

Shumate incurred recurring losses from operations of $3,107,251
for the six months ended June 30, 2008, and has an accumulated
deficit of $30,550,139.  These conditions, the Company said in an
August 2008 regulatory filing, raise substantial doubt as to its
ability to continue as a going concern.

Shumate has sought recapitalization with debt and equity during
2008, however there can be no assurance that it will successfully
recapitalize. In addition, management is trying to continue to
increase Shumate's revenues and improve its results of operations
to a level of profitability including revenues and cash flow from
its Hemiwedge Valve Corporation subsidiary.  New sales
representative agreements have been executed during 2008 to assist
in the sales and marketing efforts to improve our results of
operations.

Shumate believes that it will not be able to fund its operations,
working capital requirements, and debt service requirements
through fiscal year 2008 through cash flows generated by
operations alone.  The Company said management will seek to raise
additional capital in fiscal year 2008, and possibly beyond 2008
if Shumate's results of operations do not continue to improve or
if the need otherwise arises.

stockholders' deficit.

The company is in the process of researching, developing, testing

STOCKERYALE INC: Gets Continued Listing of Stocks Until Dec. 23
---------------------------------------------------------------
StockerYale Inc. received an extension from the Nasdaq Listing
Qualifications Panel to regain compliance with the $1.00 minimum
bid price requirement of The Nasdaq Stock Market until Dec. 23,
2008.  In order for the company to maintain its listing on the
Nasdaq Stock Market beyond that date, its common stock must have a
closing bid price of $1.00 or more for a minimum of ten
consecutive trading days prior to Dec. 23, 2008.

The company disclosed that on Dec. 28, 2007, the company received
a notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market indicating that it was not
in compliance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 4450(a)(5) because, for
30 consecutive business days, the bid price of the company's
common stock had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share.  The
company did not regain compliance with the minimum bid price
requirement and, accordingly, on June 26, 2008, the company
received written notification from The Nasdaq Stock Market stating
that the company's common stock would be subject to delisting as a
result of the deficiency unless the company requested a hearing
before the Panel.

On July 3, 2008, the company requested a hearing before the Panel
to address the minimum bid price deficiency, which was held on
Aug. 14, 2008.  At the hearing, the company presented a plan to
regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement.

The extension granted by the Panel is subject to the company's
continuing compliance with all requirements for continued listing
on the Nasdaq Capital Market.  There can be no assurance that the
company will maintain compliance with the continued listing
requirements of The Nasdaq Stock Market or achieve the minimum bid
price of $1.00 for a minimum of ten consecutive trading days.

SYNTAX-BRILLIAN: Files More Proof Olevia Breached Contract
----------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle of Bloomberg News reports that Syntax-Brillian Corp.
and its debtor-affiliates filed more than 30 pages of papers with
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware explaining
how there was no breach of contract with TCV Industries Co.
affiliate Olevia International Group, LLC, on the purchase of the
Debtor's assets.

Olevia International, the report recalls, accused the Debtors on
Sept. 10 of violating their sale contract by losing business from
Target Corp., the Debtors' main customer.  The following day, the
Debtors filed a  lawsuit asking the Court to compel Olevia
International to complete the purchase.

The Debtors say Target didn't give written notice it was no longer
doing business, according to the report.  It only canceled
outstanding purchase orders, the report quotes the Debtors as
saying.

In addition, the Debtors say Olevia International refused to sign
an agreement with Target containing the terms under which it
would do business after the acquisition, thus explaining why
Target canceled purchase orders, according to the report.

Olevia has denied the Debtors' allegations in the lawsuit and
demanded that the Debtors return its $5 million deposit.  Olevia
insisted that it fulfilled all of its pre-Closing obligations
under the Purchase Agreement.

The sale contract had been scheduled for completion on Sept. 15,
the report recalls.  The contract calls for Olevia International
to assume $60 million in secured debt, the report says.

The Debtors are separately negotiating to sell the Vivitar camera
business with headquarters in the U.K.

Based in Tempe, Arizona, Syntax-Brillian Corporation (Nasdaq:BRLC)
-- www.syntaxbrillian.com -- manufactures and markets LCD HDTVs,
digital cameras, and consumer electronics products include
Olevia(TM) brand high-definition widescreen LCD televisions and

the sole shareholder of California-based Vivitar Corporation.

The company and two of its affiliates -- Syntax-Brillian SPE,
Inc., and Syntax Groups Corp. -- filed for Chapter 11 protection
on July 8, 2008 (Bankr. D. Delaware Lead Case No.08-11409 through
08-11409.  Dennis A. Meloro, Esq., and Victoria Watson Counihan,
Esq., at Greenberg Traurig LLP, represent the Debtors in their
restructuring efforts.  Five members compose the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC
is the Debtors' balloting, notice, and claims agent.

When the Debtors filed for protection against their creditors,
they listed total assets of $175,714,000 and total debts of
$259,389,000.


THORNBURG MORTGAGE: Clarifies Georgeson Compensation Issue
----------------------------------------------------
Thornburg Mortgage, Inc. sent a letter to the Securities and
Exchange Commission in response to comments relating to the
Company's Preliminary Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A.

In a letter to Thornburg Mortgage on July 18, 2008, the SEC asked
the company for a detailed analysis of why the exemption under
Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933 is available given
the compensation to be paid to Georgeson Inc. as information
agent, relating to an Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation for
all outstanding shares of the Company's 8.00% Series C Cumulative
Redeemable Preferred Stock, Series D Adjusting Rate Cumulative
Redeemable Preferred Stock, 7.50% Series E Cumulative Convertible
Redeemable Preferred Stock and 10% Series F Cumulative Convertible
Redeemable Preferred Stock.

In response, Thornburg Mortgage noted that compensation
arrangement between the company and Georgeson is in no way related
to the amount of securities tendered in the exchange.

Thornburg Mortgage also noted that SEC has confirmed that third
parties may be compensated for providing certain assistance to an
issuer in an exchange offer pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) so long as
the third party is not engaged in soliciting the exchange plan or
offer.

Thornburg Mortgage clarifies that it nor Georgeson intends that
the information agent shall play any role other than related to
the limited tasks  related to certain mechanical and
administrative matters of the exchange offer.

The Company says certain of its officers and employees will be
involved in the solicitation and recommendation of the Company's
3(a)(9) exchange.  The employees that will be involved in the
exchange solicitation will only be compensated by their regular
salaries and shall not receive any bonuses or special commissions
for their activities related to the exchange solicitation.  The
Company notes that none of the employees involved have been hired
for the purpose of the exchange solicitation.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 27, 2008,
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Ca and C senior debt and
preferred stock ratings, respectively of Thornburg Mortgage Inc.
Thornburg's Ca debt rating remains under review for possible
downgrade.

Moody's said that Thornburg's efforts to raise capital to avoid
default under its repo agreements have resulted in the
reconfiguration of its balance sheet with adverse impact on its
debt and preferred equity holders.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 11, 2008,
Standard & Poor's said that the completion of Thornburg Mortgage
Inc.'s tender offer for its preferred shares will have an impact
on the rating once complete.  If Thornburg is successful in the
tender offer, S&P would view this as a positive sign.


TIMKEN COMPANY: Moody's Withdraws 'Ba1' POD and CF Ratings
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded its ratings for The Timken
Company, raising its senior unsecured ratings to Baa3 from Ba1.  
The rating outlook is stable.  The upgrade considered the
company's steady progress in reducing leverage, improving
profitability, and navigating a challenging transition that has
reduced its reliance on the North American automotive market,
although recognizes that weakness in this market continues to
impact Timken's performance.

Timken's portfolio shift has been accomplished by strategic
expansion into other industrial sectors and geographies, targeted
acquisitions, and restructuring, capacity management and cost
control with respect to automotive-based operations.  In the same
rating action, Moody's withdrew Timken's Ba1 corporate family
rating and probability of default rating.

Timken's Baa3 rating reflects its market position as a leading
producer of tapered roller and needle bearings, its well-regarded
reputation and long operating history, and its role as a provider
of highly engineered products, systems and technical support
services to a diverse set of customers and industries that rely on
Timken to provide solutions to demanding friction management and
power transmission applications.  Over the last three years, the
company has generated strong operating cash flow and has reduced
its underfunded pension plan, giving it increased financial
flexibility.  

Timken's performance and its ratings also encompass its low
operating margins, the competitive nature of the bearing and steel
industries, potential for input cost pressure, the cyclicality of
many of the industries Timken serves, and Moody's expectation that
capital expenditures and acquisitions will be higher than normal
as the company continues to transform its business and operating
profile.  As a result, in an economic downturn, sales and earnings
could come under pressure and free cash flow could be negative for
multiple quarters.

Upgrades:

Issuer: Timken Company (The)

  -- Senior Unsecured Medium-Term Note Program, Upgraded to Baa3
     from Ba1

  -- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Upgraded to Baa3
     from Ba1

  -- Senior Unsecured Shelf, Upgraded to (P)Baa3 from (P)Ba1

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Timken Company (The)

  -- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Positive

Withdrawals:

Issuer: Timken Company (The)

  -- Probability of Default Rating, Withdrawn, previously rated
     Ba1

  -- Corporate Family Rating, Withdrawn, previously rated Ba1
  -- Senior Unsecured Medium-Term Note Program, Withdrawn,
     previously rated 46 - LGD3

Moody's last rating action on Timken was in August 2007, when a
positive outlook was assigned to the company and its Ba1 senior
unsecured ratings were affirmed.

The Timken Company, headquartered in Canton, Ohio, is a global
manufacturer of highly engineered bearings, power transmission
systems and high-quality alloy steels and a provider of related
products and services.  The company is the world's largest
manufacturer of tapered roller bearings, the largest North
American-based bearings manufacturer, and a leading producer of
alloy steel bars and seamless mechanical steel tubing.  Timken has
facilities in 27 countries on six continents.  In 2007, Timken had
net sales of approximately $5.2 million.

UNI-MARTS: Court Approves $17.7MM Sale to Atlantis Petroleum
------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Bathon of Bloomberg News reports that the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware approved the request of Uni-
Marts, LLC, and its debtor-affiliates to be bought by Atlantis
Petroleum LLC for at least $17.7 million.

According to the report, the Court approved the sale saying it
will provide greater recovery for the Debtors than any other
alternative, according to court documents filed today in
Wilmington, Delaware.

The Debtors, according to the report, named Atlantis the lead, or
stalking-horse, bidder at an August auction.  Atlantis won the bid
when no competing offers were submitted, and the auction was
canceled, court papers show according to the report.

Facing a lawsuit by their gas-station operators and a weakening
U.S. economy, the Debtors tried to find a buyer before
filing for bankruptcy protection on May 29, 2008.  According to
the report, the Debtors have 283 stores with annual sales of
$550 million, down from 485 stores in 2004 when it was taken
private by Green Valley Acquisition Co., according to court
papers.

Atlantis, according to the report, agreed to buy the Debtors'
assets in Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio, according to court
documents.  In addition to the $17.7 million, Atlantis will pay an
undisclosed amount for vehicles and unsold fuel plus 73 percent to
85 percent of the value of store inventory, according to the
report.

The report, citing court filings, said Uni-Marts agreed to pay
Exxon Mobil Corp. $4.9 million and the BP America Inc. unit, BP
Products North America, $4.7 million for canceling its contracts.

The sale must be completed by Sept. 30, the Debtors said according
to the report.

                        About Uni-Marts

Headquartered in State College, Pennsylvania, Uni-Marts LLC sells
consumer goods.  The company and six of its affiliates filed for
Chapter 11 protection on May 29, 2008 (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case
No.08-11037).  Michael Gregory Wilson, Esq., at Hunton & Williams
LLP represents the Debtors in their restructuring efforts.  The
Debtor selected Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC as its claims,
notice and balloting agent.  The U.S. Trustee for Region 3
appointed seven creditors to serve on an Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.  The Committee selected Blank Rome LLP as its
counsel in these cases.


UST INC: Agrees to Altria Group's $11.7 Billion Acquisition Offer
------------------------------------------------------------------
UST Inc. disclosed in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing
that it entered into a definitive agreement with Altria Group,
which would acquire all outstanding shares of the company.

Under the terms of the agreement, shareholders of UST will receive
$69.50 in cash for each share of common stock held.  The
transaction is valued at approximately $11.7 billion, which
includes the assumption of approximately $1.3 billion of debt.

"The combination of Altria and UST creates the premier tobacco
company in the United States with leading brands in cigarettes,
smokeless tobacco and machine-made large cigars," said Michael E.
Szymanczyk, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Altria.  "We
are excited about this strategic and financially attractive
acquisition as it will enhance our ability to deliver superior
shareholder return that is expected to exceed our 12% goal.  This
transaction is consistent with our growth strategy of making
disciplined investments in adjacent categories.  UST provides
Altria with the leading premium brands, Copenhagen and Skoal, in
the highly profitable MST category.  We will also acquire Ste.
Michelle Wine Estates, a premium wine business, as part of the
transaction."

Upon completion of the transaction, Altria's operating companies
will offer adult tobacco consumers a diverse range of superior
premium tobacco products with strong brands including Marlboro,
Copenhagen, Skoal and Black & Mild.

"This all cash transaction delivers compelling value to UST's
shareholders," said Murray S. Kessler, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer of UST.  "UST's growth strategy will clearly be
enhanced by Altria's resources and infrastructure."

Based on UST's three-month average stock price of $53.90, this
offer represents a premium of 28.9% to UST's shareholders.
The transaction is subject to UST shareholder approval and
customary regulatory approvals, which will be pursued promptly.  A
copy of the agreement containing all the terms of the transaction
is filed today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The transaction does not change Altria's 2008 guidance for
adjusted full-year diluted earnings per share from continuing
operations, which is expected to be in the range of $1.63 to
$1.67.  This range represents a 9% to 11% growth rate from an
adjusted base of $1.50 per share in 2007.

                       Financial Benefits

Altria expects the acquisition of UST to be accretive to adjusted
diluted earnings per share within twelve months of closing and to
generate an attractive double-digit economic return.

The integration is anticipated to generate around $250 million in
annual synergies by 2011, primarily driven by reduced selling,
general and administrative and corporate expenses.  Altria
believes that these estimated synergies will enable the company to
deliver increased shareholder and consumer value.

The UST acquisition is expected to grow and diversify Altria's
operating income and net revenues.  For the first half of 2008,
reported operating income for Altria and UST was $2.6 billion and
$451 million, respectively.  If Altria had owned UST since the
beginning of 2008, Altria's first half of 2008 net revenues would
have increased 10.3% to $10.4 billion as shown in Table 1 below.

In conjunction with the acquisition agreement, Altria has modified
its share repurchase program.  The Board of Directors has approved
a three-year (2008 to 2010) $4.0 billion program, replacing a
previously announced two-year $7.5 billion program.  This modified
program facilitates financing the UST acquisition.  Altria spent
approximately $1.2 billion repurchasing 53.5 million shares of its
stock in 2008, and the company expects to resume purchasing stock
against this modified program in 2009.

                             Financing

Altria has received new committed bridge financing totaling
$7.0 billion from Goldman Sachs & Co. and J.P. Morgan which,
together with its existing credit facilities and cash, is expected
to be more than sufficient to fund the transaction.  Altria
intends to access the public-debt market to refinance a portion of
its credit facilities.  To help Altria achieve the highest credit
ratings on such refinancings, Philip Morris USA Inc., a wholly
owned subsidiary of Altria, has issued guarantees for Altria's
debt.

                            Management

Under the terms of the agreement, UST will become a wholly owned
subsidiary of Altria.  Following the completion of the
transaction, Murray S. Kessler will be named Vice Chair of Altria,
reporting directly to Michael E. Szymanczyk, and will oversee the
integration.  

"I look forward to working closely with Mike and his management
team to integrate our outstanding brands and employees into the

UTENDAHL INSTITUTIONAL: Moody's Slashes Rating from Aaa to B
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the rating of Utendahl
Institutional Money Market Fund from Aaa to B.  The rating remains
on review for possible further downgrade.

The downgrade action follows Utendahl's decision to suspend
redemptions in the Fund.  Utendahl and the Fund's Board of
Trustees at the same time made a decision to close the Fund and
distribute all fund assets to shareholders.  The decision was made
in the face of significant redemptions and serious constraints on
liquidity in money market instruments.  Moody's considers the
decision to discontinue cash redemptions a material deviation from
the fund's stated objective to protect principal and provide daily
liquidity.

Moody's review will focus on the ultimate plan adopted by the
Fund, the strategies that it uses to execute its plan, the
performance of the portfolio during this period, and the impact,
if any, that the U.S. Treasury Department's announcement regarding
the establishment of a temporary guaranty program for U.S. money
market funds might have on the portfolio and its liquidation.

Utendahl Institutional Money Market Fund is a constant net asset
value money market fund managed by Utendahl Capital Management,
L.P.  The Fund, whose mark-to-market net asset value calculated on
September 17, 2008 was $0.9976 per share, does not hold any
impaired assets as of the September 17, 2008 portfolio report, as
provided by the Company.  

As of the September 17, 2008 portfolio report, the top 2
concentrations in the Fund are Aa2 rated Societe Generale and Aaa
rated General Electric which represent 10.6 % of Fund's $646.5
million in total net assets.  The potential loss to investors as a
result of Utendahl's action is uncertain at this time.  According
to Utendahl, the Fund and its Board of Trustees are working to
develop a detailed plan of distribution, with the goal of
providing shareholders with the opportunity to receive
distributions as expeditiously as possible.

Utendahl Capital Management, L.P is a minority and women owned and
operated registered investment adviser founded in 1992.  The firm
specializes in fixed income asset management for institutional

VTA OKLAHOMA: Seeks Authority to Use Lender's Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------------
VTA Oklahoma City, LLC doing business as Shepherd Mall, has
requested the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of
Oklahoma for authority to use up to $190,000 in cash collateral to
continue paying operating and other expenses through Dec. 31,
Marie Price of The Journal Record reported Friday.  The report
adds that the court filing says that the Debtor has no financing
source other than cash collateral.

The mall's owners have also requested for an extension of the 30-
day period in which utility companies are prohibited from
terminating or refusing service.

Ms. Price says the Debtor sought Chapter 11 protection because its
major lender, LB-UBS Commercial Mortgage Trust, would not extend
the maturity date of a $34.9 million note on the Northwest 23rd
Street property.

The filing also cited uncertainty over getting a new tenant to
lease the former AOL space.

"Due to the dramatic and historically unprecedented liquidity
crisis in the United States' credit markets and the uncertainty
surrounding a major tenant lease, the debtor has been unable to
refinance the note," the filing stated.  "As a result of lender's
refusal to extend the maturity date, the debtor filed this case to
preserve value of the property for the benefit of creditors and
equity holders."

In December 2006, America Online closed its call center in the
mall.  The 80,000-square-foot space is still leased to AOL, who
has the option to terminate the arrangement in November.

"AOL has vacated its space and it is anticipated AOL will exercise
the right to terminate its lease," the filing stated.  "Debtor
believes this space can readily be re-let, but cannot begin
marketing of the AOL space until the lease is formally
terminated."

The Debtor told the Court that the property was appraised in June
2008 at more than $60 million.  VTA purchased the mall in June
2005 for $48.5 million.

Some 18 state agencies occupy offices in about 173,000 square feet
of the mall, housing about 800 employees, Ms. Price disclosed.

WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Citigroup, Canadian Bank Might Bid
-----------------------------------------------------
Citigroup Inc. is considering making a bid for Washington Mutual
Inc., David Enrich, Robin Sidel, and Dan Fitzpatrick at the Wall
Street Journal report, citing people familiar with the situation.

According to WSJ, sources said that Citigroup and several other
parties that include Banco Santander SA and Wells Fargo & Co. are
reviewing WaMu's books, which are packed with shaky mortgages.   
People close to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. said that the company is
biding its time on a potential bid, WSJ states.

Kirsten Grind at Puget Sound Business Journal relates that
Toronto-Dominion Bank of Canada was reportedly interested in
bidding for Citigroup.

Ari Levy and Zach Mider at Bloomberg News report that while
bidders are primarily interested in WaMu's 2,300 branches and $143
billion in retail deposits, they must also contend with up to $19
billion in mortgage losses during the next two and a half years.

The bidders, Portland Business Journal states, want a government
assisted takeover of WaMu.

According to Puget Sound, a source familiar with WaMu said the
$700 billion federal bailout plan might help pave the way for a
sale.  The source said that the plan might put potential acquirers
in a better position to buy the bank, the report says.

Bloomberg relates that the bailout plan might not erase enough of
its soured mortgages to lure bidders.  "There could be an in-limbo
case, where potential buyers are unwilling to take on WaMu's
troubled mortgage book until issues are ironed out.  But the
company needs to raise incremental capital in the meantime,"
Bloomberg quoted CreditSights Inc. analyst David Hendler as
saying.

                       About Citigroup Inc.

Headquartered on New York City, Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) --

beginning the fourth quarter of 2007.  Aggregate net losses for
the last three quarters totaled $17.4 billion.

Citigroup reported a net loss for the 2008 second quarter of
$2.5 billion.  Solid results in the core franchise were offset by
write-downs and credit costs.  Results include $7.2 billion in
pre-tax write-downs in Securities and Banking.  Additionally,
credit costs increased $4.5 billion, mainly driven by Consumer
Banking in North America and Global Cards.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its counterparty credit
rating on WaMu to 'BB-/B' from 'BBB-/A-3'.

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 22, Fitch Ratings placed the
ratings of Washington Mutual, Inc. ('BBB-/F3'), Washington Mutual
Bank ('BBB/F3') and related entities on Rating Watch Evolving.  
This action reflects recent market developments, specifically, the
waiver by WaMu's largest investors of the price reset rights under
their investment agreement and warrants associated with their June
2008 capital investments.

WHITEHALL JEWELER: Interim DIP Financing Extended Until Sept. 24
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware will
convene a hearing on Wednesday, September 24, 2008, to consider
further extension of the Debtor-In-Possesion Interim Financing for
Whitehall Jewelers Holdings, Inc., and Whitehall Jewelers, Inc.

On June 23, 2008, the Debtors sought permission from the Court to
borrow up to $80,000,000 in post-petition financing and grant the
DIP Lenders security interests and superpriority administrative
expense status pursuant to Section 364 of the Bankruptcy Code.  
The Debtors also sought permission to use cash collateral securing
their obligations to their prepetition secured lenders pursuant to
Section 363, and provide adequate protection for any diminution in
value of the collateral.

On June 27, 2008, the Court permitted the Debtors to borrow up to
$22,000,000 from the DIP facility, and use cash collateral.

Details of the Court order is available at:

       http://bankrupt.com/misc/whitehall_interimOrder

WHITEHALL JEWELERS: Court Okays Global Pact on Consignment Goods
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware approved Whitehall Jewelers Holdings, Inc., and
Whitehall Jewelers, Inc.'s Global Settlement Agreement and Release
and Related Settlements Regarding Treatment of Consignment Goods.

The Debtors had filed a motion to sell all assets pursuant to
Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code.  The proposed sale process was
complicated by uncertainty regarding competing interests in more
than $60 million of consignment goods inventory on hand as of the
filing of the bankruptcy petition.  Because of this, the Debtors
had requested authorization to include the Memo Goods in their
Section 363 sale.  On July 28, 2008, the Court denied the request.  
That order didn't resolve the substantive rights and competing
claims and interests asserted in the Memo Goods by the Consignment
Vendors, Bank America, N.A., LaSalle Bank National Association,
PWJ Lending II LLC, and the Debtors.  As a result, more than 120
adversary proceedings would need to be initiated and litigated to
fully determine the status and priority of the Parties' competing
interests in the Memo Goods.  Such litigation would be time
consuming and expensive -- requiring, among other things,
discovery into the discrete facts and cirmcumstances surrounding
the claims of more than 120 Consignment Vendors.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors and certain
Consignment Vendors alleged various defenses to the $40 million of
secured claims of PWJ, thejunior secured lender in these cases,
and other claims and causes of action against PWJ and certain of
its affiliates, including claims for equitable subordination of
PWJ's claims.  The Committee filed an objection to the entry of a
final debtor-in-possession financing order.  The objection created
uncertainty over the uninterrupted funding of the Debtors' cases,
as PWJ has informed the Debtors that it would not otherwise
consent to the proposed DIP financing or the use of any of PWJ's
cash collateral.  PWJ denied and disputed all other assertions
made by the Committee and other parties.

The Debtors told the Court that unless a global settlement was
achieved among all major constituencies, these estates would
become mired in protracted, time-consuming and expensive
litigation, which could jeopardize the Debtors' efforts to sell
their assets in an orderly fashion and maximize recoveries for the
benefit of all creditors.  

The Debtors reached the Global Settlement Agreement with:

     -- the Committee;

     -- LaSalle Bank as agent for the pre-petition revolving
        lender under the Pre-Petition Revolving Credit
        Facility;

     -- PWJ Lending as Administrative Agent, Collateral Agent
        and a pre-petition lender under the Pre-Petition Term
        Loan Agreement; and

     -- Bank America as agent for the post-petition lenders
        under the DIP Facility.

On Aug. 18, 2008, the Debtors sought Court approval of the Global
Settlement Agreement and Release, and Related Settlements
Regarding Treatment of Consignment Goods.

The Global Settlement Agreement and the Vendor Agreements also
constitute an important first step toward the formulation and
ultimate approval of a liquidating plan.  Under the Global
Settlement Agreement and the Vendor Agreements, PWJ has agreed to
subordinate a portion of its secured claim to the fuding of
administrative expenses of these estates.  PWJ and the
Paricipating Consignment Vendors have agreed to subordinate their
rights to distributions to certain specified creditors in

WOODSIDE GROUP: Wants to Continue Selling Homes in Ordinary Course
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle of Bloomberg News reports that Woodside Group, LLC,
and its debtor-affiliates seek authority from the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California to
continue selling homes in the ordinary course of business.

The Debtors, according to the report, said they have 800
outstanding contracts to build and sell homes.

The Debtors note that they are obligated to customers on account
of an estimated $7.1 million in outstanding Deposits related to
the Sale Contracts, of which approximately $6.9 million has been
transferred into the Debtors' central operating account.

If the Debtors breach a Sale Contract, the Deposit is owed to the
purchaser. The Debtors estimate they may owe up to $375,000
related to pre-Petition Date Deposits for cancellations.  The
Debtors relate that it is conceivable that they could have later
obligations to return Deposits under the Sale Contracts.

The insurance companies that filed the nearly 200 involuntary
petitions said that the Debtors secretly carried out a
restructuring in July where more than one hundred companies were
merged into 11 newly formed entities in violation of the credit
agreement, according to the report.

In addition to the $407 million owing to the insurance companies,
the Debtors, according to the report, owes another $335 million
under a bank credit agreement, according to JPMorgan Chase Bank
NA, the agent for the lenders.

WOODSIDE GROUP: Noteholders Ask Court to Oust Management
--------------------------------------------------------
The Ad Hoc Group of Noteholders of Woodside Group LLC and its
debtor-affiliates ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of California to direct the appointment of a Chapter 11
Trustee; or alternatively, direct both (i) the appointment of an
examiner in these cases for certain specified purposes and (ii)
the termination of the Debtors' exclusive periods in which to file
and confirm a plan of reorganization.

The Noteholders are prepared to participate in any meeting of
creditors to elect the trustee and suggest a qualified party for
the role.

The Noteholders contend that both pre- and post-petition, the
Debtors' senior managers have demonstrated their inability to
operate the business of the Debtors in a manner consistent with
the fiduciary duties of a debtor-in-possession.  According to the
Noteholders, based on management's conduct in managing the
Debtors' affairs, the estates and their creditors appear to hold
significant potential claims against the Debtors' senior managers,
all of which should be investigated during these cases -- ideally
by an independent third party, such as a trustee.  Whether
ultimately pursued as claims for breaches of fiduciary duties or
claims in the nature of fraudulent transfer related to hundreds of
millions of dollars of dividends, potential tax refunds and real
estate transfers, the Noteholders intend to see these claims
investigated and pursued (as appropriate) during the bankruptcy
cases.  The Noteholders believe the bank lenders share this view.

As an example to Management's conflicted self interest and gross
mismanagement of the Debtors' affairs, the Noteholders relate that
on July 25, 2008 -- after at least two months of planning -- the
Debtors consummated a massive corporate reorganization.  Despite
extensive efforts by the Noteholders and the bank lenders to
engage the Debtors in a restructuring dialogue, the Debtors
planned and consummated the Tax Reorganization without disclosing
it to either creditor constituency.  "In fact, the Noteholders and
the Bank Lenders were not the only parties kept in the dark," the
Noteholders say.

According to the Noteholders, the Debtors' senior managers opted
to withhold disclosure of the Tax Reorganization from both their
own restructuring professionals and from the Court.  The
Noteholders allege that the Tax Reorganization had been structured
with the sole purpose of accelerating tax refunds for the Equity
Holders through a paper transaction.  The Noteholders point the
Court to postpetition disclosures by the Debtors, including an
Ernst & Young power point presentation regarding the steps
necessary to complete the Tax Reorganization.

The Noteholders also inform the Court that in June 2008, the
Debtors transferred a number of assets to six of their Non-Debtor
affiliates that are subject to a loan agreement with Zions First
National Bank, a local Utah bank operating in the same
jurisdiction as the Debtors' home offices.  The assets can be
valued anywhere between $13 million and $30 million.  According to
the Noteholders, the Debtors contend that the transfers were
intended merely to correct administrative glitches by which the
relevant properties were previously titled in the wrong entities.  
The Noteholders relate that these steps were not only withheld
from the Noteholders and the Bank Lenders, but also withheld from
the Debtors' own restructuring professionals.

On August 19, 2008, in response to a state court legal action
filed by Zions Bank, Woodside Group caused the Zions Borrowers to
provide Zions with various sources of collateral.  According to
the Noteholders, the collateral serves to potentially subordinate
intercompany claims of both Debtors and non-debtors against the
Zions Borrowers, and acts to the detriment of all creditors of
these cases other than Zions.  The Noteholders relate that the
Debtors' senior managers sought the legal counsel of their
traditional corporate lawyers rather than their restructuring
professionals when both defending the state court action and
executing the collateral agreements.

"Amazingly, the collateral granted by the Zions Borrowers was
provided pursuant to a three month standstill agreement (with no
assurance of a full restructuring with Zions)," the Noteholders
say.

"Overall, the granting of collateral to Zions once again raises
questions about the senior managers' understanding of the
bankruptcy process.  When considering bankruptcy petitions for
portions of the corporate chain, why grant liens that favor one
creditor at six entities in return for a three month standstill?  
Collateral that subordinates other claims in return for a three
month standstill that might ultimately unravel is simply
untenable.  Moreover, pressed on the issue of whether the Debtors
might consider filing bankruptcy petitions for the Zions Borrowers
at some point, the Debtors have expressed no willingness to
consider moving in such a direction. As a result, with every
passing day the preference window on the liens granted to Zions
shortens.

"Alone, the Zions transactions would be troubling, but combined
with management's consistent pattern of operating with a
conflicted self interest, a fundamental misunderstanding of the
bankruptcy process and a staunch willingness to act (sometimes
covertly) without the advice of restructuring professionals, the
transactions are simply unacceptable, warranting close scrutiny."

According to the Noteholders, given the creditors' lack of
confidence in existing management, these cases -- absent the
appointment of a trustee -- run the risk of becoming highly
contentious proceedings with attendant costs that will dwarf the
costs associated with appointing a trustee.  Moreover, it is
difficult to imagine the Noteholders or the Bank Lenders
supporting any plan of reorganization that does not include the
formation of a litigation trust to pursue claims against the
senior managers.  As a result, affording the managers time to
produce alternative plans would be futile,  and, ultimately, will
result in further deterioration of assets pending the ultimate
termination of exclusivity, the Noteholders say.

"Appointment of a trustee is appropriate under the circumstances,
and, in fact, is the only adequate means by which to ensure the
preservation of estate assets and the prompt facilitation of a
productive plan process," the Noteholders tell the Court.

JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., on behalf of itself and as the
administrative agent for various other lenders of the Debtors,
supports the Noteholders' request.

WORLD HEART: Regains Compliance with Shares Minimum Price Value
---------------------------------------------------------------
World Heart Corporation disclosed that after a review by a NASDAQ
Listing Qualifications Panel, NASDAQ has determined that
WorldHeart's common stock will continue to be listed on The Nasdaq
Capital Market.  Additionally, WorldHeart received a letter from
the NASDAQ stating that the company has regained compliance with
the requirement to have a minimum market value of publicly held
shares of $1,000,000 for at least 10 consecutive trading days as
required by the The Nasdaq Capital Market pursuant to Marketplace
Rule 4310(c)(7).

On June 25, 2008, the company received a staff deficiency letter
from the NASDAQ informing the company that for the previous 30
consecutive trading days it had not maintained the minimum market
value of publicly held shares of $1,000,000 and that the company
had 90 calendar days, or until Sept. 23, 2008, to regain
compliance.  That matter is now closed.

On July 31, 2008, WorldHeart completed a $30,000,000 private
placement transaction and recapitalization that resulted in the
issuance of 300,000,000 common shares.  This private placement
cured the Company's shareholders' equity deficiency or non-
compliance with Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(3), disclosed on
March 31, 2008.

In addition, on Aug. 21, 2008, the company initiated a phased
consolidation plan which the company expects will reduce its
expenses and increase the likelihood that the company will
maintain compliance in the longer term.  The company remains
within the grace period for its bid price deficiency through
Oct. 27, 2008, but has filed a proxy statement seeking shareholder
approval for a reverse stock split to increase its share price and
cure its bid price deficiency set forth under Marketplace Rule
4310(c)(4).

W.R. GRACE: Files Joint Chapter 11 Plan and Disclosure Statement
----------------------------------------------------------------
W. R. Grace & Co. filed a Plan of Reorganization and an
accompanying Disclosure Statement with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware.  The Official Committee of Asbestos
Personal Injury Claimants, the Representative for Future Asbestos
Personal Injury Claimants, and the Official Committee of Equity
Security Holders are co-proponents of the Plan.  The documents are
consistent with the terms of the previously announced asbestos
personal injury settlement.

"[The] filing brings Grace an important step closer to resolving
its asbestos-related liabilities and exiting Chapter 11," said
Fred Festa, Grace's Chairman, President and Chief Executive
Officer.  "It's an equitable plan that enjoys wide-spread support.  
People who have been injured by asbestos exposure will be fairly
compensated while employees and shareholders retain control of a
financially strong company that is poised to succeed in today's
challenging global marketplace."

A hearing on the Disclosure Statement is scheduled to begin on
October 27, 2008.

The Financial Information assumes these terms of the Plan:

(1) Asbestos Related Claims

    Asbestos-related personal injury claims will be resolved
    through the contribution of cash, warrants, deferred payments
    and proceeds received under third party arrangements to a
    trust established under Section 524(g) of the Bankruptcy Code.

    The specific components of the Grace contribution to the
    Asbestos PI Trust are:

       * Cash of $359 million, including $250 million pursuant to
         the asbestos personal injury settlement announced in
         April 2008 and $109 million.  To ensure that the Sealed
         Air Indemnified Parties and the Fresenius Indemnified
         Parties obtain Section 524(g) protection with respect to
         all asbestos PI and property damage claims, Cryovac and
         Fresenius will pay a total of $109 million to the
         Asbestos PD Trust, which amount would otherwise have
         been paid by Grace for resolved PD claims.  As an
         offset, the Cryovac and Fresenius payments to the
         Asbestos PI Trust will be reduced by a total of
         $109 million and Grace's payment to the Asbestos PI
         Trust will be increased by $109 million.

       * Warrants to acquire 10 million shares of Grace common
         stock at an exercise price of $17 per share expiring one
         year after the Effective Date.

       * Deferred payments of $110 million per year for five
         years beginning January 2, 2019, and of $100 million per
         year for ten years beginning January 2, 2024.

       * Rights to proceeds under Grace's asbestos-related
         insurance coverage.

(2) Asbestos-related PD claims, including the US ZAI PD Claims,  
    will be resolved through the payment by Cryovac and Fresenius
    of $109 million to a trust established under Section 524(g)
    and the contribution by Grace of the Asbestos PD Note.  The
    Asbestos PD Note will represent an obligation of Grace to pay
    the Asbestos PD Trust for Asbestos PD Claims allowed after the
    Effective Date.  At the Effective Date, the Asbestos PD Note
    will have no balance.  

    Grace will resolve the Canadian ZAI PD Claims through the
    payment of approximately $6.4 million to the CDN ZAI PD Claim
    Fund as set forth in the Plan.  Cryovac will contribute
    directly to the Asbestos PI Trust and the Asbestos PD Trust a
    total of (i) cash of $512.5 million plus accrued interest of
    5.5% from December 21, 2002, and (ii) 18 million shares of
    Sealed Air Corporation common stock.  Fresenius will
    contribute directly to the Asbestos PI Trust and Asbestos PD
    Trust a total of $115 million.

(3) Other Claims: Grace will pay approximately $1,049 million,
    estimated as of June 30, 2008, of cash to satisfy other claims
    payable at the Effective Date.  In addition, "Emergence
    Contingencies" in the amount of $125 million have been
    included for bank fees, legal fees, and other allowable
    claims.

(4) Ongoing Liabilities: Grace will satisfy all other liabilities
    subject to compromise, as they become due and payable over
    time.   Those liabilities are estimated at approximately $352
    million as of June 30, 2008, and include amounts for
    post retirement benefits, environmental remediation, income
    tax contingencies, and probable payments under the Asbestos PD
    Note.

The Financial Information assumes Grace pays claims with existing
cash and investments, borrowings under a new credit facility and
future operating cash flow.  The Financial Information assumes a
new $1,750 million credit facility to fund allowed claims payable
on the Effective Date and to provide working capital and letters
of credit for continuing operations.  Of that amount, $1,500
million is assumed funded at emergence, with $250 million of
revolver capacity undrawn and available for future needs.  In
addition, Grace is assumed to have cash and investment securities
of approximately $381 million on the Effective Date to fund
working capital and strategic capital needs and any contingencies.  
The Financial Information assumes a 9% interest rate on
outstanding borrowings.

                       Liquidation Analysis

W.R. Grace & Co., and the other plan proponents prepared a
liquidation analysis, which is an estimate of the proceeds that
may be generated as a result of a hypothetical Chapter 7
liquidation of the assets of the Debtors and non-debtor
affiliates.

For purposes of the liquidation analysis, the Effective Date is
assumed to be December 31, 2008.  The Analysis assumes that the
hypothetical Chapter 7 liquidation is effected via the orderly
sale of the businesses of the Debtors and Non-Debtor Affiliates as
going concerns.

* Oregon's Housing Market Still Hasn't Reached Bottom
-------------------------------------------------------
-
Portland and Seattle, which along with Charlotte, were the top
three housing markets in the Standard & Poor's Case-Shiller index
as recently as February, had fallen to the fifth and sixth
strongest markets by June, Ryan Frank of The Oregonian reports.

The report says that places such as Denver, Dallas and Boston show
signs that they've hit bottom.  Portland's prices in June fell
5.8% compared with the same month in 2007 and Seattle's market is
down 7.1% compared with last year, but Portland and Seattle are
still outperforming the nation as a whole.

Mr. Franks goes on to say that Oregon homebuilders are "stuck
holding millions of dollars in unsold homes and lots," and have  
cut back on new construction.

The report also discloses that some of Oregon's mills have closed
as a result of slowing demand for wood products.  The Western Wood
Products Association reported Thursday that the 2007 lumber
production in Western sawmills fell to its lowest level since
1996.

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

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

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

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

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

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

For copies of court documents filed in the District of Delaware,
please contact Vito at Parcels, Inc., at 302-658-9911.  For
bankruptcy documents filed in cases pending outside the District
of Delaware, contact Ken Troubh at Nationwide Research &
Consulting at 207/791-2852.
