ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Canadian Court Approves Tenth DIP Consent
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Mr. Justice Clement Gascon, J.S.C., of the Superior
Court Commercial Division for the District of Montreal in Quebec,
Montreal, Canada approved "Consent No. 10" to the $206 million
Senior Secured DIP Facility under the Senior Secured Superpriority
DIP Credit Agreement dated April 21, 2009, as amended, by and
among AbitibiBowater Inc., Bowater Incorporated and Bowater
Canadian Forest Products Inc., as borrowers; certain lenders; and
Fairfax Financial Holdings Inc., as initial lender, initial
administrative agent and initial collateral agent.

The Canadian Court's approval recognizes the Order entered by
Bankruptcy Judge Carey as the presiding judge of the bankruptcy
proceedings of the U.S. AbitibiBowater Debtors.

The Amended Tenth DIP Consent provides that if the aggregate
principal amount of the advances has not been repaid in full on
or prior to October 15, 2010, the Borrowers will pay to the
Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders a fee equal
to 0.5% of the aggregate amount of the Advances outstanding on
October 15, 2010, made by each Lender -- that fee being due and
payable on October 15, 2010.  Once paid, the Fee will be non-
refundable in all circumstances.

Other key terms of the Tenth DIP Amendment consist of, among
other things, an extension of the DIP Maturity Date to the
earliest of December 31, 2010, or the effective date of the
Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization.

The U.S. Debtors have estimated that the Tenth DIP Amendment will
yield cost savings of approximately $4 million through the end of
September 2010.

ABITIBIBOWATER INC: Says Company 'Hopelessly Insolvent'
-------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News reports that AbitibiBowater Inc.
is opposing the appointment of an official committee to represent
shareholders, citing that it is "hopelessly insolvent".  Abitibi
said that the reorganized company will have a consolidated
enterprise value of about $3.68 billion, compared with claims
totaling $8.9 billion.

To recall, 34 equity shareholders that hold a total of 13,579,432
shares of AbitibiBowater stock are asking Bankruptcy Judge Kevin
Carey to appoint an official committee of equity security holders
in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases.  Representing the shareholders,
L. Jason Cornell, Esq., at Fox Rotshchild LLP, in Wilmington,
Delaware, notes that the Chapter 11 proceedings have afforded the
Debtors an opportunity to reduce substantial claim exposure,
eliminate unprofitable contracts, and renegotiate a more favorable
debt structure.  He adds that while there is no disputing that the
paper industry has declined over the years, there is compelling
evidence -- including the Debtors' financial forecasts -- to
suggest that the Debtors are not "hopelessly insolvent."

ADPT CORPORATION: Gets Notice of NASDAQ Delisting Determination
---------------------------------------------------------------

of the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department indicating that
the Nasdaq will suspend ADPT's common stock from trading on The
Nasdaq Global Market at the opening of business on August 5, 2010.
The delisting notice resulted from ADPT having sold substantially

shell." ADPT does not intend to appeal this determination.

ADPT expects that its shares of common stock will be quoted on the

AMB PROPERTY: Fitch Downgrades Preferred Stock Rating to 'BB+'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded the credit ratings of AMB Property
Corp. and AMB Property, L.P., the operating partnership of AMB
Property Corp.:

AMB Property Corp.

  -- Issuer Default Rating to 'BBB' from 'BBB+';
  -- Preferred Stock to 'BB+' from 'BBB-'.

AMB Property, L.P.,

  -- IDR to 'BBB' from 'BBB+';
  -- Unsecured revolving credit facilities to 'BBB' from 'BBB+';
  -- Senior unsecured notes to 'BBB' from 'BBB+'.

Additionally, Fitch has assigned a rating of 'BBB' to AMB Japan
Finance Y.K.'s 55 billion yen unsecured term loan.

The Rating Outlook has been revised to Stable from Negative.

The rating downgrade is based on Fitch's expectation that AMB's
near-to-medium term credit profile will remain consistent with an
IDR of 'BBB'.  The downgrade also contemplates Fitch's Negative
Outlook for industrial REITs in 2010, which is driven by
challenging macroeconomic fundamentals that have weakened overall
industrial tenant demand and significantly reduced market rents
and occupancy rates during this cycle.

The downgrade also reflects Fitch's view that while conditions
have modestly improved in the industrial market, macroeconomic
conditions remain uncertain and weakening global macroeconomic
growth could put further pressure on the operating performance of
AMB's portfolio that could have a negative impact on AMB's fixed
charge coverage and leverage metrics.

The ratings reflect AMB's large, high quality, and well-
diversified portfolio of global industrial properties, a well-
diversified tenant roster, demonstrated access to a wide variety
of capital sources throughout cycles, a good liquidity position,
and a large pool of unencumbered assets.

With assets in 48 markets in 15 countries in the Americas, Europe,
and Asia, the company has one of the premier investment platforms
geared to industrial assets.  At June 30, 2010, approximately 70%
of gross square footage in the operating portfolio (78% based on
AMB's ownership percentage) was located in the U.S. but the
proportion of the portfolio located outside the U.S. has been
increasing over time.  The portfolio is also concentrated in
higher barrier-to-entry locations, which provides value to AMB's
assets as well as contingent liquidity to investors.

The company has demonstrated good access to capital through cycles
and has raised approximately $2.5 billion of public and private
debt and equity capital since the beginning of 2009.

Given the fragile economic recovery, operating fundamentals remain
challenging with rental rates on renewal and rollover leases
declining by 6.9% in 1Q'10 and 9.1% in 2Q'10 across AMB's
portfolio, driving down same-store cash net operating income by
4.5% in 1Q'10 and 5.1% in 2Q'10.  While the company's lease
expiration schedule is reasonably staggered, 38.8% of the
company's leases by annualized base rents expire by the end of
2012, indicating the potential for further pressure on rent
renewals and rollovers going forward.

AMB's portfolio exhibits tenant and geographical diversification.
The company's top 20 tenants only represented 21.5% of 2010 ABR
and only two tenants, Deutsche Post World Net (3.3%) and the U.S.
Government (2.4%), represented over 2% of ABR.  The portfolio
spans North America, Europe and Asia, with top markets in the
U.S., including Southern California (13.1% of ABR in 2Q'10),
Northern New Jersey/New York (9.2%), the San Francisco Bay Area
(7.6%), Chicago (7.1%), and South Florida (5.2%).

AMB also maintains a good liquidity position.  Pro forma for two
financings completed in July and assuming that AMB refinances 80%
of its pro rata share of secured debt, AMB's sources of liquidity
(unrestricted cash, availability under the company's unsecured
credit facilities and expected retained cash flows from operating
activities after dividends) divided by uses of liquidity (pro rata
share of debt maturities, expected recurring capital expenditures
and development costs) result in a liquidity coverage ratio of 2.1
times (x) for July 1, 2010 to Dec. 31, 2011, assuming the
commitment sizes of AMB's unsecured revolving credit facilities
with a final maturity date in 2011 are reduced by one-third.
Notwithstanding the company's liquidity position and demonstrated
access to capital, AMB maintains elevated joint venture debt
maturities between 2011 and 2013, representing approximately 58%
of AMB's share of debt maturities.

AMB maintains a large pool of unencumbered assets to service its
unsecured borrowings.  AMB's trailing 12 months unencumbered cash
NOI capitalized at a stressed 7.5% capitalization rate covered its
unsecured debt net of excess cash by approximately 1.9x at
June 30, 2010.  Unencumbered asset coverage, when also including
non-stabilized unencumbered real estate, was 2.4x as of June 30,
2010.

Offsetting these credit strengths, AMB's leverage and fixed charge
coverage are expected to be in a range that is appropriate for the
'BBB' level in the near to medium term.  For the trailing 12
months ended June 30, 2010, AMB's net debt to recurring operating
EBITDA was approximately 7.9x on a consolidated basis, compared
with 9.0x and 8.5x as of Dec. 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
For the trailing 12 months ended June 30, 2010, AMB's fixed charge
coverage (defined as recurring operating EBITDA including cash
distributions from joint ventures less recurring capital
expenditures and straight-line rent adjustments, divided by
interest expense, capitalized interest and preferred dividends) on
a consolidated basis, including cash flow distributions from
unconsolidated joint ventures, was 2.1x compared with 1.8x and
1.7x for the year ended Dec. 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

AMB maintains a sizable completed development pipeline which
includes 30 properties with a carrying value of approximately
$877 million that have been completed but not yet stabilized.
These projects were 51.8% leased at June 30, 2010.  Additionally,
AMB has seven projects in its development pipeline that are
currently under construction.  These projects were approximately
53% pre-leased.  AMB's share of the remaining cost to fund the
development pipeline, including expected leasing costs, was
approximately $35 million as of June 30, 2010.  Further leasing
progress could increase the cash flow from these assets and reduce
AMB's leverage.

The two-notch differential between AMB's IDR and its preferred
stock rating is consistent with Fitch's criteria for corporate
entities with a 'BBB' IDR.  Based on Fitch's criteria report
('Equity Credit for Hybrids & Other Capital Securities'), AMB's
preferred stock is 75% equity-like and 25% debt-like since it is
perpetual and has no covenants but has a cumulative deferral
option in a going concern.  Net debt plus 25% of preferred stock
to recurring EBITDA was 8.0x as of June 30, 2010, compared with
9.1x as of Dec. 31, 2009.

These factors may have a positive impact on the ratings and/or
Outlook:

  -- Fitch-defined fixed charge coverage on a consolidated basis,
     including Fitch's estimate of recurring distributions cash
     flow from unconsolidated joint ventures, sustaining above
     2.3x (coverage was 2.0x for the trailing 12 months ended
     June 30, 2010);

  -- Net debt to recurring operating EBITDA sustaining below 6.5x
     on a consolidated basis (leverage was 7.9x as of ended
     June 30, 2010).

These factors may have a negative impact on the ratings and/or
Outlook:

  -- Fitch-defined fixed charge coverage sustaining below 1.7x on
     a consolidated basis including Fitch's estimate of recurring
     distributions cash flow from unconsolidated joint ventures;

  -- Net debt to recurring operating EBITDA sustaining above 8.3x;

  -- Reduced access to capital.

AMELIA ISLAND: Two Investors Rival Offer of Noble Investment
------------------------------------------------------------
The Florida Times-Union notes two more investors have filed offers
to acquire the assets of Amelia Island Co.  Bidders were given
until July 29, 2010, to submit their initial offers for the assets
of Amelia Island.

Noble Investment Group, the stalking horse bidder, is under
contract to start the August 23 auction with its $45.9 million
bid.  The bidders must top Noble's bid at the auction in order to
acquire the assets.

A hearing to consider confirmation of the Chapter 11 plan of
Amelia Island, which based on the sale, is also scheduled for
Aug. 23.

Amelia Island Plantation owns a 1,350-acre resort on Amelia
Island in Florida.  The resort has 249 rooms and three
golf courses.  The property owes $28.4 million on a first mortgage
held by an affiliate of Prudential Retirement Insurance & Annuity
Co.  The collateral is said by the resort to be worth $46 million.

Fla. Case No. 09-09601).  The petition says assets and debt both
exceed $50 million.


AMERICAN APPAREL: Deloitte & Touche Resigns as Accountant
---------------------------------------------------------
Deloitte & Touche LLP resigned as the independent registered
public accounting firm of American Apparel Inc. effective July 22,
2010.  Deloitte served as the Company's independent registered
public accounting firm since April 3, 2009.

During the period from April 3, 2009 through July 22, 2010,
the Company had no disagreements with Deloitte on any matter
of accounting principles or practices, financial statement
disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure that, if not resolved
to Deloitte's satisfaction, would have caused Deloitte to make
reference to the subject matter thereof in connection with its
report on the Company's consolidated financial statements for the
year ended December 31, 2009.

Deloitte's audit report dated March 31, 2010, on the Company's
consolidated financial statements as of, and for the year ended,
December 31, 2009, did not contain an adverse opinion or a
disclaimer of opinion, nor was it qualified or modified as to
uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.

During the period from April 3, 2009 through July 22, 2010, there
were no "reportable events", except that:

   i) in Deloitte's report dated March 31, 2010, on the Company's
      internal control over financial reporting as of December 31,
      2009, Deloitte identified material weaknesses in internal
      control over financial reporting related to the control
      environment and to the financial closing and reporting
      process, which are further described under Item 9A in the
      Company's 2009 Form 10-K, and advised that the Company has
      not maintained effective internal control over financial
      reporting as of December 31, 2009; and

  ii) Deloitte advised the Company that certain information has
      come to Deloitte's attention, that if further investigated
      may materially impact the reliability of either its
      previously issued audit report or the underlying
      consolidated financial statements for the year ended
      December 31, 2009 included in the Company's 2009 Form 10-K.

Deloitte has requested that the Company provide Deloitte with the
additional information Deloitte believes is necessary to review
before the Company and Deloitte can reach any conclusions as to
the reliability of the previously issued consolidated financial
statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 and auditors'
report thereon.

The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company
discussed each of these matters with Deloitte.  The Company has
authorized Deloitte to respond fully to the inquiries of the
Company's successor accountants concerning each of these matters.

In accordance with Item 304(a)(3) of Regulation S-K, the Company
provided Deloitte with a copy of the disclosures it is making in
this Current Report on Form 8-K prior to the time this Form 8-K
was filed with the SEC.  The Company requested that Deloitte
furnish a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether or not it
agrees with the statements made herein.

On July 26, 2010, the Audit Committee engaged Marcum LLP as the
Company's independent auditors to audit the Company's financial
statements.  During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2008 and
2009, and the subsequent interim period from January 1, 2010
through July 26, 2010, the Company has not, and no one on the
Company's behalf has, consulted with Marcum on any of the matters
or events set forth in Item 304(a)(2) of Regulation S-K, except
that:

   i) Marcum audited the Company's consolidated financial
      statements as of, and for the year ended, December 31, 2008,

  ii) Marcum expressed an adverse opinion on the effectiveness of
      the Company's internal control over financial reporting as
      described in the Company's Amendment No. 1 to Current Report
      on Form 8-K/A filed with the SEC on April 10, 2009,

iii) the Company discussed certain matters with Marcum as
      described in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed
      with the SEC on July 23, 2009,

  iv) Marcum reissued its auditors' report, dated August 12, 2009,
      in conjunction with the Company's Amendment No. 1 to its
      Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31,
      2008, filed with the SEC on August 13, 2009, and the 2009
      Form 10-K,

   v) Marcum issued a consent for the incorporation by reference
      of its auditors' report in the Company's Form S-8, filed
      with the SEC on November 24, 2009,

  vi) Marcum issued a consent for the incorporation by reference
      of its auditors' report in the Company's Form S-8, filed
      with the SEC on April 17, 2008 and

vii) Marcum performed related auditing, review and updating
      procedures during the time period that Marcum was terminated
      as the Company's independent registered public accounting
      firm, effective April 3, 2009, and the date that Marcum was
      reappointed on July 26, 2010.

AMERICAN SAFETY: Moody's Cuts Probability of Default Rating to 'D'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded American Safety Razor
Company's probability-of-default rating to D from Caa3 and the
corporate family rating to Ca from Caa3.  The downgrade was
prompted by ASR's July 28, 2010 announcement that it entered
chapter 11 in the United States Bankruptcy Court.  Consistent with
Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology, the ratings on the
company's first lien senior secured credit facilities were lowered
to Caa3 from Caa2 and the second lien term loan to Ca from Caa3.

Subsequent to the actions, Moody's will withdraw the ratings
because ASR has entered bankruptcy.

These ratings were downgraded:

* Corporate Family Rating to Ca from Caa3;

* Probability-of-Default Rating to D from Caa3;

* $35M sr. sec 1st lien revolving credit facility due 2012 to Caa3
  (LGD3, 36%) from Caa2 (LGD3, 36%);

* $216M sr. sec 1st lien term loan due 2013 to Caa3 (LGD3, 36%)
  from Caa2 (LGD3, 36%);

* $175M sr. sec 2nd lien term loan due 2014 to Ca (LGD4, 55%) from
  Caa3 (LGD4, 55%).

The last rating action was on July 19, 2010, when Moody's
downgraded the corporate family rating and probability-of-default
rating to Caa3 from Caa1, the company's first lien senior secured
credit facilities to Caa2 from B3, and the rating on the second
lien term loan to Caa3 from Caa1.  The ratings outlook remained
negative.

Headquartered in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, American Safety Razor
Company is a designer, manufacturer and marketer of brand name and
private-label consumer and industrial products.  The company
reported revenues of $335 million for the twelve months ended
April 3, 2010.


AMN HEALTHCARE: S&P Puts 'BB-' Rating on CreditWatch Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services placed its ratings, including
its 'BB-' corporate credit rating, on San Diego, Calif.-based AMN
Healthcare Inc. on CreditWatch with negative implications.  This
means that S&P could lower or affirm the ratings upon completion
of S&P's review.

"This action follows the company's July 28, 2010 announcement that
the company entered into definitive agreement to acquire
Medfinders using 6.3 million shares of AMN common stock and
5.7 million shares of newly issued AMN series A conditional
preferred stock," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Rivka
Gertzulin.  AMN will amend and extend its $107 million senior
secured first lien term loan, increasing it by $68 million and
issue a $50 million senior secured second lien term loan.

Although the company's credit metrics have bolstered the rating,
they have been deteriorating, primarily because of weakness in the
travel nurse business.  While the Medfinders transaction may
improve the company's business risk profile by improving its
competitive position and diversifying its revenue base, pro forma
adjusted debt leverage will exceed 5x at the close of the
transaction (not including synergies).  This could suggest a one
notch downgrade of AMN's corporate credit rating.

S&P will resolve the CreditWatch after S&P reviews the
implications of this transaction for the company's business
strategy, and prospects for the sustained restoration of a
stronger financial risk profile.


ARAMARK CORP: Bank Debt Trades at 6% Off in Secondary Market
------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which ARAMARK Corp. is a
borrower traded in the secondary market at 94.31 cents-on-the-
dollar during the week ended Friday, July 30, 2010, an increase of
0.94 percentage points from the previous week, according to data
compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and reported in The Wall Street
Journal.  ARAMARK pays 188 basis points above LIBOR to borrow
under the facility, which matures on Jan. 6, 2014, and is not
rated by Moody's and Standard & Poor's.  The loan is one of the
biggest gainers and losers among 193 widely quoted syndicated
loans with five or more bids in secondary trading for the week
ended Friday.

ARAMARK Corp. -- http://www.aramark.com/-- is the world's #3
contract foodservice provider (behind Compass Group and Sodexo)
and the #2 uniform supplier (behind Cintas) in the US.  It offers
corporate dining services and operates concessions at many sports
arenas and other entertainment venues, while its ARAMARK
Refreshment Services unit is a leading provider of vending and
beverage services.  The Company also provides facilities
management services.  Through ARAMARK Uniform and Career Apparel,
the company supplies uniforms for healthcare, public safety, and
technology workers.  Founded in 1959, ARAMARK is owned by an
investment group led by chairman and CEO Joseph Neubauer.


ATLAS PIPELINE: S&P Puts 'B-' Rating on CreditWatch Positive
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it placed its ratings on
Atlas Pipeline Partners L.P., including its 'B-' corporate credit
rating, 'B' senior secured rating, and 'CCC' senior unsecured
rating, on CreditWatch with positive implications.

The actions followed Atlas's agreement to sell its Elk City assets
to Enbridge Energy Partners L.P.  (BBB/Stable/A-2), and
management's intention to use the proceeds to fully repay its
$422 million secured term loan and reduce revolver borrowings by
$250 million to about $40 million.  S&P believes this will result
in pro forma total debt to EBITDA of about 2.5x (compared with
5.8x at March 31, 2010), although S&P expects a target of about 4x
over the longer-term.  The transaction will also free up
significant revolver capacity, enhancing liquidity.  Consequently,
S&P is revising S&P's financial risk profile to 'aggressive' from
'highly leveraged'.

S&P also views Atlas as more geographically concentrated than its
gathering and processing peers, and therefore marginally weaker
from a business risk perspective, because the company gave up
access to the Granite Wash region and will become more dependent
on the Marcellus Shale over time.

S&P believes Atlas will deploy most of its future growth capital
to build out its Laurel Mountain joint venture (subject to
receiving a waiver from lenders lifting a capital spending
restriction).  However, the amount of growth capital required, the
potential effect on the company's liquidity, and the timing of
incremental cash flow over the next 18 to 24 months is uncertain
at this juncture.

"In resolving the CreditWatch, S&P will assess how Atlas plans to
approach its growth in Appalachia and the effect the strategy
could have on the company's rating," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Michael Grande.

S&P expects to resolve the CreditWatch listing within the next one
to two months.  S&P anticipate that if S&P upgrade the corporate
credit rating it would be limited to one notch.  Based on a
preliminary review of the pro forma capital structure, S&P would
anticipate revising the senior secured recovery rating to '1' from
'2', and the senior unsecured recovery rating to '5' from '6'.

AVAYA INC: Bank Debt Trades at 11% Off in Secondary Market
----------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Avaya, Inc., is a
borrower traded in the secondary market at 88.94 cents-on-the-
dollar during the week ended Friday, July 30, 2010, an increase of
2.55 percentage points from the previous week, according to data
compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and reported in The Wall Street
Journal.  The Company pays 275 basis points above LIBOR to borrow
under the facility, which matures on Oct. 26, 2014.  The bank debt
is not rated by Moody's and Standard & Poor's.  The loan is one of
the biggest gainers and losers among 193 widely quoted syndicated
loans with five or more bids in secondary trading for the week
ended Friday.

Avaya, Inc., based in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, is a supplier of
communications systems and software for enterprise customers.

The Troubled Company Reporter stated on Dec. 23, 2009, that
Moody's downgraded Avaya's corporate family rating to B3 from B2.
The downgrade was driven by challenges presented by the
acquisition of Nortel's enterprise assets as well as the large
amount of additional debt incurred to finance the acquisition
(around $1 billion).


AVIS BUDGET: Moody's Maintains Corporate Family Rating at 'B2'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service is maintaining its current B2 Corporate
Family Rating and Positive Outlook for Avis Budget Group, Inc.,
following the company's announcement that it has submitted a
$1.3 billion offer to acquire Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group,
Inc.

The maintenance of Avis' current ratings and outlook recognizes
that the offer is not definitive and has not been accepted by
Dollar.  Under current terms of the existing agreement, Hertz
Corporation would acquire Dollar for $1.1 billion and has the
right to counter the Avis' offer.  Should the Avis purchase of
Dollar be consummated, Avis' positive rating outlook might not be
sustained as a result of an increase in acquisition related debt.

However, if the transaction does not proceed, Avis' improving
operating performance and more favorable industry fundamentals
would continue to support a positive outlook.  Avis' positive
outlook reflects the benefits from the cost cutting initiatives
that the company has undertaken and from improving fundamentals
within the daily rental market.  These favorable industry
fundamentals include: industry-wide fleet size that is being
managed in line with demand, an outlook for used car prices to
remain strong through 2011, strengthening daily rental pricing,
and improved availability of ABS financing to support fleet
purchases.  In the absence of a Dollar acquisition and the related
increase in Avis' corporate debt, these factors would continue to
support a possible improvement in Avis' rating.

Nonetheless, Moody's believes that the acquisition of Dollar by
either Avis or Hertz would represent an additional positive for
industry fundamentals.  It would result in the industry consisting
of three main players (Avis, Hertz and Enterprise) and would
likely support greater stability with respect to the industry's
overall fleet size, used car values, and vehicle rental rates.

If Avis' $1.3 billion offer for Dollar is successful the company
would likely achieve considerable cost synergies as a result of
the acquisition, and improve its competitive position in the value
segment of the US automobile daily rental sector.  However,
Moody's estimates that it would take 12 to 18 months for Avis to
fully realizing these potential savings.  In the meantime, the
company's already high level of corporate debt (approximately
$2.1 billion compared with $4.6 billion in fleet debt), would
increase considerably.  A positive outlook may not be sustainable
given an increase in corporate debt and the time frame necessary
to achieve the anticipated synergies.

The last rating action on Avis was a change in the outlook to
positive from negative on February 17, 2010.

Avis Budget Car Rental LLC, headquartered in Parsippany, NJ, is a
leading competitor in the US on-airport car rental sector.

BAYSIDE SAVINGS BANK: Closed; Centennial Bank Assumes All Deposits
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bayside Savings Bank of Port Saint Joe, Fla., and Coastal
Community Bank, Panama City Beach, Fla., were closed on Friday,
July 30, 2010, by federal and state banking agencies, which then
appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver
for both institutions.  To protect depositors, the FDIC entered
into purchase and assumption agreements with Centennial Bank of
Conway, Ark., to assume all the deposits and essentially all the
assets of the two failed institutions.  Bayside Savings Bank was
closed by the Office of Thrift Supervision, and Coastal Community
Bank was closed by the Florida Office of Financial Regulation.
Collectively, the two failed institutions operated 13 branches,
which will reopen as branches of Centennial Bank during normal
business hours, including those offices with Saturday hours.
Bayside Savings Bank has two branches, and Coastal Community Bank
has eleven branches.

Depositors of Bayside Savings Bank and Coastal Community Bank will
automatically become depositors of Centennial Bank.  Deposits will
continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for
customers to change their banking relationship to retain their
deposit insurance coverage.  Customers of the two failed
institutions should continue to use their former branches.  Over
the weekend, depositors can access their money by writing checks
or using ATM or debit cards.

As of March 31, 2010, Bayside Savings Bank had total assets of
$66.1 million and total deposits of $52.4 million.  Coastal
Community Bank had total assets of $372.9 million and total
deposits of $363.2 million.  Centennial Bank did not pay the FDIC
a premium for the deposits of the failed banks.  In addition to
assuming all the deposits from the two Florida institutions,
Centennial Bank will purchase virtually all their assets.

The FDIC and Centennial Bank entered into loss-share transactions
on $48.3 million of Bayside Savings Bank's assets and
$302.8 million of Coastal Community Bank's assets. Centennial Bank
will share in the losses on the asset pools covered under the
loss-share agreement.  The loss-share transaction is projected to
maximize returns on the assets covered by keeping them in the
private sector.  The transaction also is expected to minimize
disruptions for loan customers. For more information on loss
share, visit:

Customers who have questions about the transactions can call the
FDIC toll free: for Bayside Savings Bank customers, 1-800-405-
6318; and for Coastal Community Bank customers, 1-800-523-0640.
Interested parties can also visit the FDIC's Web sites:

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund
will be $16.2 million for Bayside Savings Bank and $94.5 million
for Coastal Community Bank.  Compared to other alternatives,
Centennial Bank's acquisition was the least costly resolution for
the FDIC's DIF.  These two closings bring total closures for the
year to 106 banks in the nation, and the 19th and 20th in Florida.
Prior to these failures, the last bank closed in Florida was
Sterling Bank, Lantana, on July 23, 2010.


BERNARD MADOFF: Trustee Sues to Recover Business Investments
------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News reports that Irving H. Picard, the
trustee for Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities Inc., filed
three lawsuits to recover $34.5 million and ownership interests in
businesses that Bernard Madoff's family members purchased with
money that was allegedly stolen from the Madoff firm's customers.

Mr. Picard filed adversary cases against these parties:

        Case No.      Defendants
        -------       ----------
        10-03485      Madoff Family LLC

        10-03484      Madoff Energy Holdings LLC, Madoff Energy

                      LLC

According to Bloomberg, the court documents say Mr. Madoff gave
$250 million to his closest family members, including his wife,
brother, two sons and a niece.  The money allegedly was used to
"fund lavish lifestyles" and provide $22 million for investment in
businesses.

                    About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Bernard L.
Madoff orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, with
losses topping US$50 billion.

On December 15, 2008, the Honorable Louis A. Stanton of the
U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York granted
the application of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation
for a decree adjudicating that the customers of BLMIS are in need
of the protection afforded by the Securities Investor Protection
Act of 1970.  The District Court's Protective Order (i) appointed
Irving H. Picard, Esq., as trustee for the liquidation of BLMIS,
(ii) appointed Baker & Hostetler LLP as his counsel, and (iii)
removed the SIPA Liquidation proceeding to the Bankruptcy Court
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Adv. Pro. No. 08-01789) (Lifland, J.).

On April 13, 2009, former BLMIS clients filed an involuntary
Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition against Bernard Madoff (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. 09-11893).  The case is before Hon. Burton Lifland.  The
petitioning creditors -- Blumenthal & Associates Florida General
Partnership, Martin Rappaport Charitable Remainder Unitrust,
Martin Rappaport, Marc Cherno, and Steven Morganstern -- assert
$64 million in claims against Mr. Madoff based on the balances
contained in the last statements they got from BLMIS.

On April 14, 2009, Grant Thornton UK LLP as receiver placed Madoff
Securities International Limited in London under bankruptcy
protection pursuant to Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. S.D. Fla. 09-16751).

The Chapter 15 case was later transferred to Manhattan.  In June
2009, Judge Lifland approved the consolidation of the Madoff SIPA
proceedings and the bankruptcy case.

Judge Denny Chin of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of New York on June 29, 2009, sentenced Mr. Madoff to
150 years of life imprisonment for defrauding investors in
United States v. Madoff, No. 09-CR-213 (S.D.N.Y.)

CHRYSLER LLC: Sterling Heights Assembly Plant Will Remain Open
----------------------------------------------------------------
Chrysler Group LLC disclosed that Sterling Heights (Mich.)
Assembly Plant (SHAP), previously designated for closure in 2012,
will remain open, adding a second shift of production - or nearly
900 jobs - in Q1 2011

Suppliers will add nearly 500 jobs to support SHAP production

Chrysler Group to sell nearly 200,000 units in Europe and South
America, more than double 2010 volumes

To thunderous applause, more than 1,500 UAW-represented employees
at Chrysler Group LLC's Jefferson North (Detroit) Assembly Plant
(JNAP) welcomed President Obama to the home of the all-new 2011
Jeep(R) Grand Cherokee.

The President visited the Chrysler plant a little more than a year
after the Company emerged from bankruptcy to see a company that is
on the road to recovery.

Since June 2009, Chrysler Group has reported an operating profit
of $143 million for the first quarter of 2010; has added a second
shift of production - or nearly 1,100 jobs - at JNAP; launched the
all-new Grand Cherokee in May; announced that it will invest $179
million to launch production of the 1.4-liter, 16-valve Fully
Integrated Robotized Engine (FIRE) at the company's Global Engine
Manufacturing Alliance (GEMA) plant in Dundee, Mich., creating
more than 150 new Chrysler jobs; and committed to investing more
than $343 million in its transmission facilities in Kokomo, Ind.

During the President's visit, Chrysler Group CEO Sergio Marchionne
announced that Sterling Heights (Mich.) Assembly Plant (SHAP),
which was scheduled to close after 2012, will now remain open
beyond that date.  In addition, he announced that the Company will
add nearly 900 jobs on a second shift of production, scheduled to
start in the first quarter of 2011.  To support that operation,
suppliers will add nearly 500 jobs.

Marchionne also said that Chrysler also expects its European and
South American sales to double between 2010 and 2011, to nearly
200,000 sales.  This increase in sales is largely attributable to
Chrysler's ability to leverage Fiat's international distribution
networks, particularly in those markets.

"We were honored to have the President come to Jefferson North
today," said Marchionne. "It was because of the courageousness of
his decision that Chrysler has been able to survive, and in fact
thrive, a little more than a year after bankruptcy."

                      The President's Visit to JNAP

Upon arrival at the nearly 3-million-square-foot assembly plant,
one of the last in an urban setting and the site of Grand Cherokee
production since its introduction in 1992, the President was
greeted by Marchionne and JNAP Plant Manager Pat Walsh, who took
him and other invited guests on a tour of the facility's all-new
flexible body shop that is delivering the most precise body
dimensions ever built.  The President stopped to talk with
employees on the panel line, a station on the assembly line where
the doors are married with the vehicle body before it goes to the
paint shop.

In preparation for production of the all-new Grand Cherokee, JNAP
went through a complete transformation as part of World Class
Manufacturing (WCM), an extensive and thorough process to restore
all Chrysler Group facilities to their original and maximum
functionality.

JNAP employees have gone through nearly 45,000 hours of training,
and have planned and executed hundreds of projects aimed at
improving the work environment, maximizing quality, minimizing
waste and preparing for the new product.  Employees have also
submitted over 2,500 suggestions on how to further improve the
processes to ensure the highest quality Grand Cherokee rolls off
the line.  These changes, throughout paint and assembly
operations, have given the facility an all-new level of
manufacturing flexibility for multiple product capability.

In total, Chrysler Group invested $686 million on the Grand
Cherokee program, which included investments at the plant.  Nearly
four million Grand Cherokees have rolled off the line since 1992.

                     About Chrysler Group LLC

Segal & Segal LLP, as conflicts counsel; Capstone Advisory Group
LLC, and Greenhill & Co. LLC, for financial advisory services; and

Chrysler and Italian automobile manufacturer Fiat.  Under the
terms approved by the Bankruptcy Court, the company formerly known
as Chrysler LLC on June 10, 2009, formally sold substantially all
of its assets, without certain debts and liabilities, to a new
company that will operate as Chrysler Group LLC.  Fiat has a 20
percent equity interest in Chrysler Group.

COASTAL COMMUNITY: Closed; Centennial Bank Assumes All Deposits
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bayside Savings Bank of Port Saint Joe, Fla., and Coastal
Community Bank, Panama City Beach, Fla., were closed on Friday,
July 30, 2010, by federal and state banking agencies, which then
appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver
for both institutions.  To protect depositors, the FDIC entered
into purchase and assumption agreements with Centennial Bank of
Conway, Ark., to assume all the deposits and essentially all the
assets of the two failed institutions.  Bayside Savings Bank was
closed by the Office of Thrift Supervision, and Coastal Community
Bank was closed by the Florida Office of Financial Regulation.
Collectively, the two failed institutions operated 13 branches,
which will reopen as branches of Centennial Bank during normal
business hours, including those offices with Saturday hours.
Bayside Savings Bank has two branches, and Coastal Community Bank
has eleven branches.

Depositors of Bayside Savings Bank and Coastal Community Bank will
automatically become depositors of Centennial Bank.  Deposits will
continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for
customers to change their banking relationship to retain their
deposit insurance coverage.  Customers of the two failed
institutions should continue to use their former branches.  Over
the weekend, depositors can access their money by writing checks
or using ATM or debit cards.

As of March 31, 2010, Bayside Savings Bank had total assets of
$66.1 million and total deposits of $52.4 million.  Coastal
Community Bank had total assets of $372.9 million and total
deposits of $363.2 million.  Centennial Bank did not pay the FDIC
a premium for the deposits of the failed banks.  In addition to
assuming all the deposits from the two Florida institutions,
Centennial Bank will purchase virtually all their assets.

The FDIC and Centennial Bank entered into loss-share transactions
on $48.3 million of Bayside Savings Bank's assets and
$302.8 million of Coastal Community Bank's assets. Centennial Bank
will share in the losses on the asset pools covered under the
loss-share agreement.  The loss-share transaction is projected to
maximize returns on the assets covered by keeping them in the
private sector.  The transaction also is expected to minimize
disruptions for loan customers. For more information on loss
share, visit:

  http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/lossshare/index.html
Customers who have questions about the transactions can call the
FDIC toll free: for Bayside Savings Bank customers, 1-800-405-
6318; and for Coastal Community Bank customers, 1-800-523-0640.
Interested parties can also visit the FDIC's Web sites:

for Bayside Savings Bank:

http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/bayside.html

and for Coastal Community Bank:

      http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/coastal.html

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund
will be $16.2 million for Bayside Savings Bank and $94.5 million
for Coastal Community Bank.  Compared to other alternatives,
Centennial Bank's acquisition was the least costly resolution for
the FDIC's DIF.  These two closings bring total closures for the
year to 106 banks in the nation, and the 19th and 20th in Florida.
Prior to these failures, the last bank closed in Florida was
Sterling Bank, Lantana, on July 23, 2010.

COMMUNICATION INTELLIGENCE: Annual Stockholders Meeting on Aug. 4
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Communication Intelligence
Corporation will be held at the Hotel Sofitel, 223 Twin Dolphin
Drive, Redwood Shores, California 94065, on August 4, 2010, at
1:00 p.m. Pacific Time, for these purposes:

    1. To elect four directors;

    2. To consider and vote upon a proposal to amend the Company's
       Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of
       shares of authorized capital stock;

     3. To consider and vote upon a proposal to amend the
        Certificate of Designation with respect to the Company's
        outstanding Series A-1 Preferred Stock;

     4. To ratify the appointment of GHP Horwath, P.C. as the
        Company's independent auditors for the year ending
        December 31, 2010; and

     5. To transact such other business as may properly come
        before the Annual Meeting.

The Board of Directors has fixed the close of business on June 28,
2010 as the record date. Only stockholders of record at the close
of business on the record date will be entitled to notice of and
to vote at the Annual Meeting or any postponements or adjournments
thereof.

                       Recapitalization Deal

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 1, 2010,
Communication Intelligence entered into definitive agreements with
Phoenix Venture Fund LLC, as lead investor, and others to provide
additional working capital to the Company while also eliminating
all existing indebtedness for borrowed money.  Holders of CIC's
senior secured indebtedness have agreed to exchange notes, which
are expected to total $6.4 million, into shares of Series B
Participating Convertible Preferred Stock and CIC will issue up to
$2 million of Series B Preferred.  The Recapitalization and
Offering are expected to close promptly after the Company's
shareholder meeting scheduled for August 4, 2010.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

In its proxy statement, the Company warned it may be forced to
file for bankruptcy if the increase in the number of authorized
shares of capital stock is not approved.

According to the Company, "Approval by the stockholders of the
increase in the number of authorized shares of capital stock is a
condition to the closing of both the Recapitalization and the
Offering.  Accordingly, if stockholders do not approve Proposal 2,
Phoenix, the Lenders and the Investors will be able to terminate
the Series B Purchase Agreement and the Exchange Agreement.  In
that event, the Company's senior secured debt which is estimated
to be in the aggregate principal amount of approximately
$6.3 million at the time of the Annual Meeting, will remain
outstanding and mature on December 31, 2010, at which time the
principal and accrued interest becomes due and payable.  If
Proposal 2 is not approved, in order to repay the senior
indebtedness at December 31, 2010, the Company must either raise
additional capital to repay such indebtedness in full or reach a
mutually acceptable agreement with the Lenders regarding an
extension or modification of the terms of the existing
indebtedness."

The Company noted that since April 2009, it has explored numerous
options to raise capital and has been unsuccessful prior to
entering into the Recapitalization and Offering.  "If Proposal 2
is not approved and the Company cannot pay its indebtedness in
full on December 31, 2010 or reach a mutually acceptable agreement
with the Lenders, the Lenders will have the right to declare all
of the indebtedness due and to exercise all of their rights under
the Credit Agreement, including enforcing their security interest
in all of the Company's assets.  Such an action could force the
Company to seek the protection of the bankruptcy laws," the
Company said.

COMPTON PETROLEUM: NYSE to Remove Entire Class of Common Stock
--------------------------------------------------------------
New York Stock Exchange LLC notified the Securities and Exchange
Commission of its intention to remove the entire class of Common
Stock of Compton Petroleum Corporation from listing and
registration on the Exchange at the opening of business on
July 16, 2010, pursuant to the provisions of Rule 12d2-2 (b),
because, in the opinion of the Exchange, the Common Stock is no
longer suitable for continued listing and trading on the Exchange.

NYSE based its determination on the fact that the Common Stock had
fallen below the Exchange's continued listing standard for average
closing price of less than US$1.00 over a consecutive 30 trading-
day period and the Company did not cure this non-compliance within
the required timeframe.

   -- The Exchange's Listed Company Manual, Section 802.01C,
      states, in part, that the Exchange would consider delisting
      a security of either a domestic or non-U.S. issuer when
      the average closing price of a security is less than US$1.00
      over a consecutive 30 trading-day period.

   -- The Exchange, on June 18, 2010, determined that the Common
      Stock should be suspended prior to the market open on
      June 25, 2010, and directed the preparation and filing with
      the Commission of this application for the removal of the
      Common Stock from listing and registration on the Exchange.
      The Company was notified by letter on June 21, 2010.

   -- Pursuant to the above authorization, a press release was
      immediately issued by the Exchange on June 18, 2010 and an
      announcement was made on the 'ticker' of the Exchange at the
      close of the trading session on June 18, 2010 and other
      various dates of the proposed suspension of trading in the
      Common Stock.  Similar information was included on the
      Exchange's website.  Trading in the Common Stock was
      suspended before the opening of the trading session on
      June 25, 2010.

   -- The Company had a right to appeal to the Committee for
      Review of the Board of Directors of NYSE Regulation, Inc.
      the determination of the Exchange to delist its Common
      Stock, provided that it filed a written request for
      such a review with the Secretary of the Exchange within ten
      business days of receiving notice of the delisting
      determination.  On June 21, 2010 the Company stated in its
      press release that the Board has concluded it is in
      the best interest of the Company and its shareholders to
      delist from the Exchange.

Compton Petroleum Corporation is an exploration and production
company.  The Company explores for, develops, and produces oil and
gas in western Canada.  Compton's interests include the areas of
Shekille, Senex, Deep Basin, Rimbey, and Vulcan/Gladys, all in

CONSTELLATION ENERGY: Fitch Affirms 'BB' Rating on Junior Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the ratings of Constellation Energy
Group, including the Issuer Default Rating at 'BBB-', and CEG's
utility subsidiary Baltimore Gas and Electric (IDR 'BBB').  The
Rating Outlook for both entities is Stable.  The actions, which
result from a routine credit review, affect approximately
$4.5 billion of obligations.  The full list of ratings is below.

The ratings affirmation for CEG and Stable Rating Outlook reflect
CEG's favorable business and financial performance after the
transfer of a 49.99% interest in Constellation Energy Nuclear
Generating LLC to Electricite de France (IDR 'A+' with a Stable
Outlook) for $4.7 billion in November 2009.  Since then, first
half of 2010 cash flow and profitability have been consistent with
or superior to the assumptions in Fitch's projections prior to the
transaction, and business risk has been reduced.  The rating and
Stable Outlook also consider CEG's available liquidity, low level
of debt maturities, and prospects for improving the cash flow of
subsidiary BGE.

CEG reduced commodity price sensitivity and liquidity risk in 2009
by selling several large but non-essential parts of its energy
marketing and trading activities and continued in 2010 to wind
down residual exposures.  CEG has continued to reduce collateral
needs and the contingent liquidity exposure related to its
wholesale energy activities.  Also, the company reduced debt with
transaction proceeds.  Credit measures such as Debt-to-EBITDA,
Debt-to-FFO, and FFO-to-Interest are now robust relative to
Fitch's benchmarks for IDR of 'BBB-' to 'BBB'.  Finally, the
company's current business, financial strategy, and control
systems are consistent with the current ratings.

Despite CEG's sale of half of the nuclear portfolio and resulting
reduction in cash flow from power generation, the effect on credit
ratios in 2010 and 2011 is offset by: materially lower debt;
profits from a discount built into the power purchase agreement
between CENG and CEG for two years; and favorable margins in the
energy retail and wholesale customer supply business.  Fitch
expects that the aggregate cash flow from the competitive
businesses will likely weaken in 2012 as current power sales
contracts and hedges are replaced with new contracts at lower
prevailing market prices, combined with the expiration of the
discount on sales of energy from CENG to CEG.  However, Fitch
expects that BGE's contribution will improve over the next several
years, assuming a balanced outcome of pending and future rate
cases in Maryland.  Overall, CEG credit ratios are expected to
remain at least consistent with the 'BBB-' IDR for the next
several years.  Fitch's projections do not assume material
investments by CEG over the next several years in new nuclear
plant development.

CEG's power generation portfolio including a net ownership of
1,920 MW of nuclear capacity is well positioned relative to
competitors with a higher dependence on coal-fired generation.
Continued expansion of environmental regulations that target coal-
fired power sources is likely to enhance the value of CEG's fleet.
CEG has high contractual cover of its expected generation output
for 2009 through 2011, but is increasingly exposed to market
prices thereafter.  CEG's profitable competitive customer supply
business focused on commercial and industrial customers and small
utilities acts as an internal downstream hedge that should
moderate the volatility of the power generation business.

Positive rating actions could result from success in hedging
future years' power output at prices that maintain credit ratios,
while negative rating actions could occur in the event of further
deterioration in prices of energy and capacity in CEG's key power
markets; inability to manage risks of the competitive customer
supply business and commodity hedging activities; or major merger
and acquisition activity or leveraging transactions that are
outside the scope of the company's current business plan.

Baltimore Gas and Electric:

The affirmation of BGE's rating with a Stable Rating Outlook is
driven by the utility's lower debt leverage relative to comparable
utilities, a situation that helps to offset the low earnings that
have resulted from a history of rate freezes and rate caps
affecting BGE's electric utility business.  BGE serves a region
with good demographic characteristics, and planned investments in
electric distribution and transmission projects are potential
growth opportunities.  However, the Maryland regulatory
environment has at times been challenging and politicized.

Despite the current constraints on electric base rate increases,
BGE is no longer constrained in its ability to receive timely
recovery of power and capacity supply costs, and can recover
investments in demand response and energy conservation through
trackers.  Cash flow volatility is reduced by volume decoupling
mechanisms for both gas and electricity sales.

Fitch's financial projections for BGE assume ongoing capital
investment and rate base growth for distribution and transmission
projects and gradual improvement in BGE's earned return on equity
over the next three to four years, assuming balanced outcomes in a
succession of base rate increases and elimination of constraints
on tariff actions.  BGE filed a $46.9 million electric and a
$42 million gas rate case in June 2010, and a decision is expected
by year end.  Fitch projects that the utility will fund its capex
with a mix of debt and equity, and that BGE's credit ratios will
continue to match or be superior to Fitch's benchmarks for the
'BBB' IDR.  The rating could improve in the future, depending on
the results of the pending 2010 rate case and future cases, while
adverse rating actions could result from an unfavorable decision
on the pending base rate case or inability to recover energy costs
or capital investments in a timely manner.

BGE has access to a separate $600 million credit facility and has
no debt or credit that is subject to cross default in the event of
a CEG default.  As a result of additional ring-fencing provisions
implemented in the past year, BGE no longer combines its short-
term cash in a CEG cash pool.

Fitch has affirmed these ratings:

Constellation Energy Group, Inc.

  -- Long-term IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured notes at 'BBB-';
  -- Short-term IDR and commercial paper at 'F3';
  -- Junior subordinated notes at 'BB'.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Company

  -- Long-term IDR at 'BBB';

  -- Senior unsecured notes and pollution control revenue bonds at
     'BBB+';

  -- Secured debt at 'A-' (none currently outstanding);

  -- Short-term IDR and commercial paper at 'F2';

  -- Preferred stock at 'BBB-'.

BGE Capital Trust II

  -- Preferred stock at 'BBB-'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable for CEG and BGE.


CONTECH CONSTRUCTION: Debt Trades at 17% Off in Secondary Market
----------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which CONTECH
Construction Products, Inc., is a borrower traded in the secondary
market at 82.55 cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday,
July 30, 2010, an increase of 0.88 percentage points from the
previous week, according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp.
and reported in The Wall Street Journal.  CONTECH pays 200 basis
points above LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan
matures on Jan. 31, 2013, and carries Moody's B1 rating and
Standard & Poor's B rating.  The loan is one of the biggest
gainers and losers among 193 widely quoted syndicated loans with
five or more bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

CONTECH Construction Products, Inc. -- http://www.contech-cpi.com/
-- headquartered in West Chester, Ohio, makes, distributes, and
installs civil engineering products related to environmental storm

manufacturing plants in all 50 U.S. states and a national sales
organization of more than 350 people.  Investment firm Apax
Partners owns CONTECH.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 30, 2009,
Moody's affirmed the ratings of CONTECH Construction Products,
Inc. -- Corporate Family and Probability of Default Ratings at B2.
The outlook has been changed to negative from stable.  The
negative outlook reflects the risk that CONTECH's ability to
navigate the downturn in construction spending may be hindered by
its highly leveraged capital structure and diminished headroom
under its financial covenants.


COOPER-STANDARD: Registers Securities for Resale
------------------------------------------------
Cooper-Standard Holdings Inc. is delaying the effective date of a
registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission for certain securities.

Cooper-Standard emerged from Chapter 11 reorganization on May 27,
2010.  As part of its plan of reorganization, Cooper-Standard
issued securities in a private placement to certain creditors to
raise a portion of the funds necessary for its emergence from
bankruptcy.  Pursuant to its plan of reorganization, certain
creditors that received the securities and their transferees are
entitled to have the securities registered for resale.

Cooper-Standard filed a prospectus dated July 26 relating to these
securities that may be sold from time to time by selling security
holders:

     -- 11,181,673 shares of Cooper-Standard common stock, par
        value $0.001 per share, which consists of 8,623,491 shares
        issued to certain creditors pursuant to a rights offering
        and 2,558,182 shares issued to certain creditors pursuant
        to a commitment agreement that provided for the backstop
        of the rights offering;

     -- 1,010,345 shares of Cooper-Standard 7% cumulative
        participating convertible preferred stock, par value
        $0.001 per share, issued to certain creditors pursuant to
        the commitment agreement that provided for the backstop of
        the rights offering (including 10,345 shares of 7%
        preferred stock issued as a dividend payment on Cooper-
        Standard outstanding shares of 7% preferred stock);

     -- 4,335,176 shares of Cooper-Standard common stock issuable
        to holders of Cooper-Standard 7% preferred stock upon
        conversion of their 7% preferred stock;

     -- warrants to purchase 1,693,827 shares of Cooper-Standard
        common stock issued to certain creditors pursuant to the
        commitment agreement that provided for the backstop of the
        rights offering; and

     -- 1,693,827 shares of Cooper-Standard common stock issuable
        to holders of Cooper-Standard warrants upon exercise of
        their warrants.

All of the securities are being sold by the selling security
holders.  Cooper-Standard will not receive any proceeds from the
sales of any of these securities other than proceeds from the
exercise of warrants to purchase shares of common stock, which
will be used for general corporate purposes.  It is anticipated
that the selling security holders will sell these securities from
time to time in one or more transactions, in negotiated
transactions or otherwise, at prevailing market prices or at
prices otherwise negotiated.

COWLITZ BANK: Closed; Heritage Bank Assumes All Deposits
--------------------------------------------------------
The Cowlitz Bank of Longview, Wash., was closed on Friday,
July 30, 2010, by the Washington Department of Financial
Institutions, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation as receiver.  To protect the depositors, the FDIC
entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Heritage
Bank of Olympia, Wash., to assume all of the deposits of The
Cowlitz Bank.

The nine branches of The Cowlitz Bank, including the two branches
operating in Oregon, and three branches operating in Washington
under the name Bay Bank, a division of The Cowlitz Bank, will
reopen during normal banking hours as branches of Heritage Bank.
Depositors of The Cowlitz Bank will automatically become
depositors of Heritage Bank.  Deposits will continue to be insured
by the FDIC, so there is no need for customers to change their
banking relationship in order to retain their deposit insurance
coverage.  Customers of The Cowlitz Bank should continue to use
their existing branch until they receive notice from Heritage Bank
that it has completed systems changes to allow other Heritage Bank
branches to process their accounts as well.

As of March 31, 2010, The Cowlitz Bank had around $529.3 million
in total assets and $513.9 million in total deposits.  Heritage
Bank paid the FDIC a premium of 1.0 percent for the deposits of
The Cowlitz Bank.  In addition to assuming all of the deposits of
the failed bank, Heritage Bank agreed to purchase around
$280.0 million of the failed bank's assets.  The FDIC will retain
the remaining assets for later disposition.

The FDIC and Heritage Bank entered into a loss-share transaction
on $160.9 million of The Cowlitz Bank's assets.  Heritage Bank
will share in the losses on the asset pools covered under the
loss-share agreement.  The loss-share transaction is projected to
maximize returns on the assets covered by keeping them in the
private sector.  The transaction also is expected to minimize
disruptions for loan customers.  For more information on loss
share, visit:

  http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/lossshare/index.html

Customers who have questions about the transaction can call the
FDIC toll-free at 1-800-528-6215.  Interested parties also can
visit the FDIC's Web site at:

      http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/cowlitz.html

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund
will be $68.9 million.  Compared to other alternatives, Heritage
Bank's acquisition was the least costly resolution for the FDIC's
DIF.  The Cowlitz Bank is the 107th FDIC-insured institution to
fail in the nation this year, and the eighth in Washington.  The
last FDIC-insured institution closed in the state was Washington
First International Bank, Seattle, on June 11, 2010.


CUSTOM CABLE: Files for Chapter 11; ComVest Mulling on Offer
------------------------------------------------------------
Custom Cable Industries, Inc has filed a voluntary petition under
Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to reorganize and implement
a balance sheet restructuring.  The filing was made in the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa
Division.

All day to day operations and business of Custom Cable will
continue as usual.  The Company has the requisite funding in hand
to operate in Chapter 11.

"Custom Cable is a good company with a poor balance sheet but
improving business operations," says Gregg Stewart, general
manager and chief restructuring officer.  "This action is being
taken to restructure the company's balance sheet and allow for a
fresh capital infusion.  Management believes a new owner and the
resultant capital infusion would allow the company to continue its
trend of positive operating results, allowing it to resume
sustainable and profitable growth.  We appreciate the support we
have received to date from our long time customers and suppliers,
and look forward to continuing these valued relationships."

Despite upward trends in operations during 2010, Custom Cable has
faced issues with its significant debt level and continued
litigation claims from former executives and its senior lender.
The decision to pursue Chapter 11 reorganization was made by a
special committee of the company's board of directors, whose
members determined that the best course of action was to seek an
asset sale of the company through Section 363 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code.

Custom Cable has retained Berenfeld Capital Markets, LLC to
solicit prospective purchasers.  An affiliate of ComVest Capital
LLC, Custom Cable's senior lender and majority shareholder, has
expressed its willingness to purchase Custom Cable.

DELPHI CORP: Congress Subcommittee Seeks Pension Input
------------------------------------------------------
About 300 salaried retirees of Delphi Corp. attended the field
hearing regarding Delphi's pension issues convened by the U.S.
Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations at Canfield, Ohio,
on July 13, 2010, Maraline Kubik of the Business Journal Daily.

Business Journal notes that the hearing was the third
congressional hearing in nine months.  The hearing was chaired by
U.S. Representative Dennis Moore of Kansas, U.S. Representatives
Charlie Wilson and Timothy Ryan.

"For General Motors Corporation to survive, Delphi also needed to
survive," Bruce Gump, director of the Delphi Salaried Retirees
Association, testified before the Subcommittee, Business Journal
relates.  According to Mr. Gump, in order to save GM, the U.S.
Department of the Treasury's Auto Task Force orchestrated a plan
for Delphi's speedy emergence.  That plan, said Mr. Gump, called
for Delphi to reduce legacy costs, which meant eliminating at
least some of its obligations to its retirees, according to the
report.

Salaried retirees and those represented by unions that do not
wield as much political power as the United Auto Workers were
sacrificed while the pensions of hourly workers represented by
the UAW were preserved, Mr. Gump alleged, the news source cites.

Another witness, DSRA Vice Chairman Jim Frost called the action
to transfer Salaried Retirees' pension to the Pension Benefit
Guaranty Corporation a "blatant disregard for the law" and a
"clever work-around," the report relates.

Norman Wernet, state director of the Ohio Alliance for Retired
Americans, also testified before the Subcommittee, relating that
about 60,000 Ohioans received retirement income from the PBGC in
2008, with an average annual benefit of $6,156, Business Journal
says.  Combined with the average Social Security benefit, that
puts most of the retirees "on the edge of poverty," Mr. Wernet
stressed, the report relates.

Other witnesses called to testify include Lee Fisher, Ohio's
lieutenant governor; Milan Drajojevic Jr., a Delphi hourly
retiree; Mary Ann Hudzik, a Delphi salaried retiree; and Dr.
Frank Akpadock, senior research associate at Youngstown State
University, Business Journal adds.

PoliticalNews.me adds that at the July 13 hearing, U.S.
Representative Chris Lee called for a closer scrutiny into the
U.S. Treasury Department's unfair and unjustified decision to cut
the Delphi pensions.  "It is long overdue for the Treasury
Department to come clean and disclose the information that led to
the unjust decision to cut the pensions of Delphi workers and
retirees," Mr. Lee insisted, the report says.

               Subcommittee Seeks Pension Input
                    From Salaried Retirees

At the July 13 hearing, the Subcommittee also asked input from
Delphi retirees and members of the community regarding the effect
the loss of the pensions and benefits had on individuals,
Business Journal relates.  The Subcommittee previously stated
that the record would remain open for 30 days so interested
parties not invited to speak during the hearing could submit
written testimony.  As of July 19, 2010, the office of
Representative Wilson has received more than 500 written
testimonies.

Against this backdrop, the Subcommittee reset the deadline for
the submission of documents to July 20, Business Journal
discloses.  The deadline was changed to allow workers in Mr.
Wilson's office adequate time to organize and submit the
testimonies, according to Business Journal.

In related news, Daniel Human of Kokomo Tribune reports that DSRA
is unhappy with the lack of support from U.S. Representative Joe
Donnelly regarding the group's fight to restore its members'
pensions to full.

According to the Kokomo Tribune article, David Sedam of the DSRA
sent an e-mail, which key target is Mr. Donnelley, stating the
lack of support from Indiana Congressional representatives.
Members of the DSRA also made a video recounting their pension
cuts, which video was attached to the e-mail, the news source
noted.

In response, the press office of Mr. Donnelly cited a letter the
Congressman sent to Delphi Chief Executive Officer Rodney O'Neal
in February 2009 asking him to reconsider the pension cuts, the
Kokomo Tribune cited.   The press office also stated that Mr.
Donnelly met with Delphi retirees to discuss the issue.  Mr.
Donnelly publicly supported an amendment in the Financial
Services Committee requiring the Presidential Task Force on the
auto industry to provide all information regarding their actions
with Delphi's salaried employees' pensions, the press office
added, according to the report.

                       *     *      *

In a public statement dated July 15, 2010, the Department of
Labor related that it issued on October 1, 2007, a certification
regarding eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance
and alternative trade adjustment assistance, applicable to
workers of Delphi Corp., Automotive Holding Group, Plant 6,
including on-site leased workers from Securitas, EDS, Bartech and
Mays Chemicals, in Flint, Michigan.

At the request of a state agency, the Labor Department amended
the Certification on July 1, 2010, to include workers leased from
Interim Physicians, LLC and HSS Material Management working on-
site at Plant Nos. 6 and 2 of Delphi.  The Labor Department
determined that workers at Plant Nos. 6 and 2 were sufficiently
under the control of Delphi to be considered as leased workers.

DELPHI CORP: VEBA Committee Asks for Final Report
-------------------------------------------------
The VEBA Committee for the Delphi Salaried Retirees Association
Benefit Trust urges Bankruptcy Judge Robert D. Drain for the
Southern District of New York to:

  (i) compel the Official Committee of Eligible Salaried
      Retirees to file its final report as required under the
      Salaried OPEB Settlement Order dated April 3, 2009; and

(ii) direct the U.S. Trustee for Region 2 to dissolve the
      Retirees Committee once the Final Report is filed.

As previously reported, the Court approved a settlement resolving
the Retiree Committee's appeal from the 'Other Post-Employment
Benefits' Termination Orders.  Under the Salaried OPEB Settlement
Order, the Retirees Committee will establish a Voluntary
Employees' Beneficiary Association or VEBA, which would extend
Health Coverage Tax Credit to benefits it would provide to the
intended beneficiaries.

The Retirees Committee established a VEBA formally known as the
Delphi Salaried Retirees Association Benefit Trust in April 2009
and appointed the VEBA Committee to administer the DSRA VEBA.

The Salaried OPEB Settlement Order also directed the Retirees
Committee to file a Final Report detailing how the Settlement
proceeds were spent and whether those funds had been allocated
fairly and equitably to, or on behalf of, salaried retirees upon
completion of the Reorganized Debtors' payments under the
Settlement.  The Reorganized Debtors made the final payment to
the Retirees Committee in November 2009.

However, the Retirees Committee failed to file the Final Report
upon the completion of payments by the Reorganized Debtors,
Timothy T. Brock, Esq., at Satterlee Stephens Burke & Burke LLP,
in New York -- tbrock@ssbb.com -- tells the Court.  "The Retirees
Committee has continuously and unjustifiably delayed filing its
Final Report," the VEBA Committee alleges.

Mr. Brock discloses that more than two months after the
completion of payments by the Reorganized Debtors, the Retirees
Committee sought various documents and final reports from the
VEBA Committee to enable it to file the Final Report.  The VEBA
Committee relates that it has provided the Retirees Committee
with the requested documents.  The VEBA Committee believes that
the documents it has supplied to the Retirees Committee have
removed any perceived impediments for the preparation and filing
of a Final Report.

The VEBA Committee insists that the Retirees Committee long ago
fulfilled its tasks pursuant to the Salaried OPEB Settlement
Order.  One of the VEBA Committee's concerns, Mr. Brock
emphasizes, is that the administrative costs will mount -- to the
absolute cost of the DSRA VEBA beneficiaries, given the limited
trust corpus -- should the Retirees Committee continue to
perpetuate its own existence by failing to file the Final Report.

The Court will convene a hearing on the VEBA Committee's Motion
on August 12, 2010.  Objections are due August 5.

DENTAL PLUS: Delay and Cost Overruns Prompt Chapter 11 Filing
-------------------------------------------------------------
Dan Hieb, staff writer at Business Journal of Nashville, reports
that Dental Plus LLC filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 in the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, citing
delays and cost overruns costing the company $180,000 caused by
contractor who built Distinctive Dentistry's new office at 1020
Antebellum Circle.

The Company, Mr. Hieb says, owes $1.6 million to CIT Small
Business Lending, and $423,000 to Matsco.

Dental Plus provides professional dental care.


DOLLAR THRIFTY: S&P Retains Ratings on CreditWatch Positive
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its ratings on Tulsa,
Okla.-based auto renter Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc.
(DTAG; B-/Watch Pos/--) remain on CreditWatch with positive
implications.  This follows competitor Avis Budget Group Inc.'s
(B+/Stable/--) July 28, 2010 bid to acquire DTAG.  S&P initially
placed the ratings on DTAG on CreditWatch with positive
implications on April 26, 2010, when the company announced that it
had signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by another
competitor, Hertz Global Holdings Inc. (B/Watch Pos/--).

"In the proposed acquisition bids, DTAG's corporate debt would be
retired, and either Avis Budget or Hertz, both rated higher than
DTAG, would assume its $1.6 billion of fleet debt," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst Betsy R. Snyder.  The acquisition would
result in an increase in market share for either Avis Budget or
Hertz in the U.S. There currently are three major on-airport car
rental companies: Hertz, Avis (parent of the Avis and Budget
brands), and Enterprise Rent-A-Car Co. (parent of the Enterprise,
Alamo, and National brands), each with about a 30% market share.
DTAG accounts for most of the balance.

"S&P will evaluate the effect of the proposed acquisition by
either Avis Budget or Hertz on DTAG's business risk and financial
risk profiles to resolve the CreditWatch listing," she continued.


ESI TRACTEBEL: S&P Withdraws 'BB' Rating on $220 Mil. Bonds
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it withdrew its 'BB'
rating on ESI Tractebel Acquisition Corp's $220 million senior
secured bonds due December 2011.  ETAC services debt with
distributions from a 290-megawatt power cogeneration facility in
Bellingham, Mass., owned by Northeast Energy Associates, and a 275
MW cogeneration facility in Sayreville, N.J., owned by New Jersey
Energy Associates.

The issuer has informed us that the bonds were fully repaid on
July 28, 2010.


FERRO CORPORATION: Moody's Affirms 'B1' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the long term debt ratings
(Corporate Family Rating of B1) of Ferro Corporation.  The
affirmation reflects the proposed refinancing as announced in
Ferro's press release of July 27, 2010.  If the refinancing plans
proceed as suggested the senior unsecured notes would likely be
rated B2.  Moody's will monitor the refinancing plans and provide
more guidance as details are announced and the plan is executed.
The outlook is positive.

"We expect Ferro's performance in the next four quarters to
continue to improve over 2009, supporting the positive outlook and
fostering improved credit metrics and liquidity," said Bill Reed,
Moody's Vice President.

Ferro's B1 CFR incorporates the expectation that leverage will
remain close to 3.0x over the next twelve months, pro forma for
the announced refinancing, and that cash flow metrics will remain
weaker than its leverage metric would imply due to on-going
restructuring actions to improve profitability.  It also reflects
an improved recovery in demand in its major end markets --
electronics, coatings, ceramics and construction.  This B1 CFR
also reflects the improved operating performance in the fourth
quarter of 2009 and first half of 2010 along with the prospect of
continued improved results.

Moody's positive outlook anticipates an improved recovery in
financial performance in 2010 aided by higher demand in Asia and a
meaningful reduction in interest expense.  However, if Ferro's
banks continue to release material levels of the cash collateral
for its precious metal leases or leverage remains well below 4.0
and free cash flow as a percentage of debt remains above 5% on a
sustainable basis, Moody's could assess the appropriateness of a
higher rating.

Ratings Affirmed:

* Corporate Family Rating, B1

* Probability of Default Rating B1

* $172.5 million Senior Unsecured Convertible 6.5% Notes due 2013,
  B2 LGD5, 71%

The last rating action on Ferro was on May 13, 2010, when Moody's
changed Ferro's outlook to positive.

Ferro Corporation, headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, is a global
producer of an array of specialty materials and chemicals
including coatings, enamels, pigments, plastic compounds, and
specialty chemicals for use in industries ranging from
construction, and telecommunications.  Revenues were $1.9 billion
for the LTM ended June 30, 2010.


FIBERVISIONS CORPORATION: Moody's Lifts Corp. Family Rating to B1
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded FiberVisions' Corporate Family
Rating to B1 from B2, the ratings on its revolver and first lien
term loan to Ba3 and the rating on the second lien term loan to
B2.  The upgrade reflects the improvement in the company's
financial metrics and substantial debt reduction over the past
several years.  The rating outlook is stable.  This summarizes the
ratings:

FiberVisions Corporation

* Corporate Family Rating -- B1 from B2

* Probability of Default Rating -- B1 from B2

* $20mm Gtd Sr Sec First Lien Revolving Credit Facility due 2011 -
  Ba3 (LGD3, 36%) from B1 (LGD3, 38%)

* $70mm Gtd Sr Sec First Lien Term Loan due 2013 - Ba3 (LGD3, 36%)
  from B1 (LGD3, 38%)

* $20mm Gtd Sr Sec Second Lien Term loan due 2013 -- B2 (LGD5,
  75%) from Caa1 (LGD5, 79%)

* Outlook - stable

FiberVisions has reduced its leverage through expanding profits
and paying down debt.  Its financial results have improved as
volumes have increased since 2008 and gross margins expanded.
Overall volumes grew in 2009, despite the contraction in sales for
certain cyclical industrial applications, and are continuing to
grow in 2010.  Gross margins have risen with improvements in
passing through raw material cost increases to customers on a
timely basis.  Additionally, its higher margin bi-component fiber
is expected to be its fastest growing product line.  The company
generated positive free cash flow in 2009 and paid down
$15.5 million of debt last year, and an additional $7 million
during the first half of 2010.  Its Net Debt / EBITDA ratio
(including Moody's standard analytical adjustments which add
$3 million to debt to account for operating leases) was 2.1x as of
December 31, 2009.  The two notch upgrade of the second lien debt
in accordance with the application of Moody's loss given default
(LGD) methodology reflects the reduction of more senior (first
lien) debt in the capital structure.

FiberVisions' liquidity should remain adequate through the end of
fiscal 2010.  Its liquidity is supported by increasing cash
balances and Moody's expectation for positive free cash flow over
the next 12-18 months.  Moody's notes that the revolving credit
facility matures on March 31, 2011 and expects it will be replaced
or amended well before its maturity, despite the low probability
of it being needed to fund current ongoing operations.  Moody's
also believes that the combination of the maturing revolver and
the 2013 maturities of their term loan raise event risk.  However,
existing term loan holders would be repaid upon a change of
control.

Moody's last rating action concerning FiberVisions was on
September 27, 2006.  At that time Moody's upgraded the ratings on
the revolver and term loan to B1 from B2 when Moody's implemented
the Probability-of-Default and Loss-Given-Default rating
methodology for the US Chemicals and Allied Products companies.

FiberVisions, headquartered in Duluth, Georgia, is a producer of
polypropylene-based staple fiber for nonwoven fabrics and textile
fibers used in consumer, industrial and construction products with
four manufacturing facilities on three continents (North America,
Europe and Asia).  The firm is wholly-owned by funds managed by
Snow Phipps Group, LLC, a New York-based private equity firm.
Revenues for the twelve months ended March 31, 2010, were
approximately $295 million.


FLEETWOOD ENTERPRISES: Wins Confirmation of Liquidating Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
Kimberly Pierceall at The Press-Enterprises reports the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California approved
the liquidating Chapter 11 plan for Fleetwood Enterprises Inc.

According to the report, the confirmation would allow Fleetwood to
distribute left-over cash to creditors it owes.  The Company's
lender ISIS is expected to get $17.8 million while Bank of America
will receive $1.7 million in funds.  The Company's unsecured
creditors will get between $10 million and $28.7 million under the
Plan.  Unsecured claims are expected to total between $115 million
and $195$ million in claims against the Company.

The Troubled Company Reporter on July 28, 2010, citing Bankruptcy
Data, reported that the Plan, as amended, embodies a settlement in
principle with the majority holders of 14% Notes and 6% Notes
that, in the aggregate, asserted in excess of $233 million of
claims against the Debtors.  In December 2008, approximately $81
million of the 5% Notes issued by FEI were exchanged for 14%
notes, which were guaranteed and secured by certain assets of the
Debtors.  The Debtors instituted an avoidance action against the
14% Notes.  The Creditors' Committee was then given standing to
pursue the avoidance action and filed an amended complaint to
avoid the issuance of the14% Notes, the security interests and
guarantees granted to the holders of the 14% Notes.

The Plan provides for the orderly liquidation of the remaining
assets of the Debtors and the distribution of the proceeds of the
liquidation of the Debtors' assets according to the priorities set
forth in the Bankruptcy Code.  To accomplish these liquidation and
distribution goals, the Plan contemplates the creation of a
Liquidating Trust to hold estate assets and the appointment of a
Liquidating Trustee to administer the assets.

FREESCALE SEMICON: Bank Debt Trades at 8% Off in Secondary Market
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Freescale
Semiconductor, Inc., is a borrower traded in the secondary market
at 91.85 cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday,
July 30, 2010, an increase of 2.11 percentage points from the
previous week, according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp.
and reported in The Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 425
basis points above LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank
loan matures on Feb. 16, 2016, and carries Moody's B2 rating and
Standard & Poor's B- rating.  The loan is one of the biggest
gainers and losers among 193 widely quoted syndicated loans with
five or more bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. -- http://www.freescale.com/-- once
Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector, is one of the oldest and
most diverse makers of microchips in the world.  It produces many
different kinds of chips for use in automobiles, computers,
industrial equipment, wireless communications and networking
equipment, and other applications. The company's global client
roster includes such blue-chip companies as Alcatel-Lucent, Bosch,
Cisco Systems, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, QUALCOMM, and Siemens, as
well as former parent Motorola.  Freescale nets about half of its
sales from the Asia/Pacific region. The Blackstone Group, The
Carlyle Group, Permira Advisers, and TPG Capital own the company.


GANNETT CO: Moody's Retains 'Ba1' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Gannett Co, Inc.'s speculative-
grade liquidity rating to SGL-2 from SGL-3.  The upgrade reflects
Gannett's meaningfully improved current and projected headroom
within the financial maintenance covenants in its credit
facilities driven by debt reduction from free cash flow,
significant cost reductions, and greater revenue stability.
Gannett's Ba1 Corporate Family Rating and Probability of Default
Rating, debt instrument ratings, and negative rating outlook are
not affected.

Upgrades:

Issuer: Gannett Co., Inc.

  -- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Upgraded to SGL-2 from
     SGL-3

Gannett is aggressively managing its cost structure including
sizable reductions in the production and distribution costs of its
publishing operations.  Moderation of the severe cyclical downward
pressure affecting advertising revenue and debt reduction funded
from free cash flow are also contributing to improving credit
metrics.  Moody's believes Gannett's debt-to-EBITDA (approximately
2.8x LTM 6/27/10 incorporating Moody's standard adjustments) and
free cash flow-to-debt (23.4% LTM 6/27/10 incorporating Moody's
standard adjustments) are in line with the levels anticipated in
the Ba1 CFR.

Refinancing risk associated with the 2012 revolver and senior note
maturities is now the primary driver of the negative rating
outlook.  Moody's expects that Gannett will seek to chip away at
its maturities in the near term.  However, volatile investor
sentiment toward newspaper issuers creates refinancing risk until
transactions are completed to reduce maturities to levels that can
be serviced with free cash flow and committed revolver capacity.
Also, a refinancing of the 2011 notes ($433 million face value
outstanding) with cash flow or guaranteed debt would reduce the
amount of unguaranteed debt that is structurally junior to the
guaranteed notes and credit facility.  This could potentially
cause the rating on the guaranteed debt to decline to Ba1 from
Baa3.

Gannett's SGL-2 speculative-grade liquidity rating reflects
Moody's expectation that Gannett will meet its $663 million of
2011 maturities with existing cash, projected free cash flow and
undrawn capacity on the $2.75 billion revolvers (approximately
$1.8 billion available as of 6/27/10) and that it will maintain a
meaningful covenant cushion (greater than 30%).  However, the SGL
rating could be lowered to SGL-4 if the March/April 2012
maturities are not proactively addressed within 12-15 months of
maturity.

The last rating action on Gannett was September 29, 2009, when
Moody's assigned Baa3 ratings to the company's senior unsecured
notes due 2014 and 2017.

Gannett, headquartered in McLean, Virginia, is a diversified local
newspaper and broadcast operator that also has ownership interests
in a number of online ventures including a majority stake in
CareerBuilder.  Revenue for the LTM ended 6/27/10 is approximately
$5.4 billion factoring in recent divestitures.


GLOBAL BRASS: S&P Assigns 'B' Corporate Credit Rating
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it assigned a
preliminary 'B' corporate credit rating to Schaumburg, Ill.-based
Global Brass and Copper Inc.  The rating outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P also assigned a preliminary 'B' (same as the
corporate credit rating) issue-level rating to GBC's proposed
$330 million senior secured term loan due 2015.  The preliminary
recovery rating is '4', indicating S&P's expectation of average
(30%-50%) recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default.

Proceeds from the proposed term loan, combined with borrowings
under a new asset-based revolving credit facility, are expected to
be used to refinance the company's existing indebtedness, fund a
distribution to the equity sponsor, and to pay fees and expenses
related to the transaction.

"The preliminary 'B' corporate credit rating on Global Brass and
Copper reflects the combination of the company's vulnerable
business risk profile and aggressive financial risk profile," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Maurice Austin.  "The company is
exposed to cyclical end-markets, including building and
construction, defense, electrical and electronics, and industrial
machinery and equipment, which can result in wide variations in
operating performance."

In addition, the company's vulnerable business risk profile
reflects its relative small scale and scope compared to other
metals producers and distributors.  The rating also takes into
consideration S&P's view that the company should have adequate
liquidity (after giving effect to the proposed financing
transactions) to meet its near-term obligations, that it has long-
standing customer relationships, and has improved its
profitability by lowering its operating costs and enhancing its
operational flexibility.


GREAT ATLANTIC: Moody's Affirms 'Caa2' Corporate Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the Speculative Grade
Liquidity rating of The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company to
SGL-4 from SGL-3, and affirmed its Caa3 Probability of Default
Rating and Caa2 Corporate Family Rating, as well as other debt
ratings.

The downgrade of the SGL rating to SGL-4 (reflecting weak
liquidity) results from unexpectedly poor operating results in the
first quarter of the current fiscal year.  A&P does have
sufficient liquidity to meet immediate operating needs, but
liquidity is strained over the next four quarters as a result of
the company's debt maturity in June 2011.  Vendor support remains
satisfactory, and management has indicated a willingness to
explore options which could improve liquidity and potentially ease
refinancing pressure.

The long term ratings continue to reflect Moody's expectation that
A&P's sales performance and profit margins are unlikely to recover
quickly from their recent weak levels, and that cash flow and
credit metrics are therefore likely to remain extremely weak.  "We
believe that A&P's capital structure is ultimately unsustainable
at current performance levels," said Marie Menendez, Senior Vice
President at Moody's.  As a result, Moody's believes that there is
a relatively high probability that the company could pursue a
material change to its capital structure.  This could include
transactions which Moody's would view as a distressed exchange and
hence a default.

The rating outlook is negative, and reflects the potential for
ratings to fall in the near term unless the company is able to
improve its cash from operations.  The ratings reflect a strong
likelihood that debtholders will incur a significant loss on their
holdings.

This rating was downgraded:

* Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating to SGL-4 from SGL-3.

These ratings were affirmed:

* Corporate Family Rating of Caa2
* Probability of Default Ratingat of Caa3
* Senior convertible notesof Caa3 (LGD 4, 53%)
* Senior unsecured notes of Caa3 (LGD4, 53%)
* Senior Unsecured Shelf of (P)Caa3 (LGD 4, 53%)
* Subordinated Shelf of (P)Ca (LGD 5, 85%)
* JR. Subordinated Shelf of (P)Ca (LGD 5, 85%)
* Preferred Shelf of (P)Ca (LGD 5, 89%)
* Senior secured notes at Caa1 (LGD 2, 21%)

The last rating action for Great A&P was the downgrade of these
debt ratings on April 9, 2010: CFR to Caa2 from Caa1, PDR to Caa3
from Caa1, Senior notes and senior convertible notes to Caa3 from
Caa2, Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating to SGL-3 from SGL-2,
Shelf Ratings to (P)Caa3 and (P)Ca from (P)Caa2 and (P)Caa3.

The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, headquartered in
Montvale, N.J., operates 433 grocery stores in the Northeast US
with particular concentration in the New York, New Jersey and
Pennsylvania markets.  Banners include A&P, Pathmark, and Food
Emporium.

HERTZ GLOBAL: S&P Retains CreditWatch Positive on Ratings
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its ratings on auto
and equipment renter Hertz Global Holdings Inc. (B/Watch Pos/--)
and its major operating subsidiary, Hertz Corp., remain on
CreditWatch with positive implications.

The ratings on Park Ridge, N.J.-based Hertz Global Holdings Inc.
and Hertz Corp. reflect an aggressive financial profile, and the
price-competitive and cyclical nature of on-airport car rentals
and equipment rentals.  The company has addressed previous
material refinancing risk through several financings it completed
over the last year.  The ratings also incorporate the company's
position as the largest global car rental company and the strong
cash flow its businesses generate.

"If Hertz's proposed acquisition of Dollar Thrifty Automotive
Group Inc. (DTAG; B-/Watch Pos/--) under the current terms is
successful, S&P believes it will aid Hertz's business profile,
without substantially hurting its financial risk profile," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Betsy R.  Snyder.  However, even
if Avis Budget Group Inc. (B+/Stable/--) is successful in
acquiring DTAG, S&P believes Hertz's improved operating and
financial performance could result in higher ratings, even without
a DTAG acquisition.  "If Hertz raises its bid to counter Avis
Budget's bid, this could affect the current CreditWatch
implications," she continued.

If Hertz's bid for DTAG as proposed is successful or if it raises
its bid to counter Avis Budget's bid, S&P will evaluate its
expectations for the Hertz business risk and financial risk
profiles, pro forma for the acquisition.  If Hertz's bid is
unsuccessful, S&P will evaluate its improved operating and
financial performance.  S&P will address these outcomes in
resolving the CreditWatch listing.

INTERNATIONAL COAL: Posts $4.5-Mil. Net Income for June 30 Qtr.
---------------------------------------------------------------
International Coal Group Inc. reported its results for the second
quarter of 2010.

   * Adjusted EBITDA was $44.8 million for the second quarter of
     2010 compared to $52.2 million for the second quarter of
     2009.  Second quarter 2010 Adjusted EBITDA was reduced by a
     $10.0 million charge due to a negotiated early termination of
     a thermal coal sales agreement.  This termination enables ICG
     to sell approximately 400,000 additional tons as premium
     high-volatile metallurgical coal at significantly higher
     prices during 2010 and 2011.  Second quarter 2009 results
     included a $7.7 million gain related to the termination of a
     below-market coal supply agreement.  Exclusive of these
     items, Adjusted EBITDA would have been $54.8 million in the
     second quarter of 2010 and $44.5 million for the same period
     in 2009, a 23% increase.

   * Net income was $4.5 million, or $0.02 per share on a diluted
     basis, for the second quarter of 2010 compared to net income
     of $10.4 million, or $0.07 per share on a diluted basis, for
     the second quarter of 2009. Net income for the second quarter
     of 2010 also included a $6.1 million pre-tax loss on
     extinguishment of debt related to the Company's capital
     restructuring.  Excluding the $10.0 million contract buyout
     and the $6.1 million loss on extinguishment of debt, pro
     forma net income in the second quarter of 2010 would have
     been $13.5 million, or $0.07 per share on a diluted basis.
     Excluding the $7.7 million gain related to the 2009 contract
     termination, pro forma net income in the second quarter of
     2009 would have been $5.6 million, or $0.04 per share on a
     diluted basis.

   * Margin per ton sold increased 26% to $14.28 in the second
     quarter of 2010 compared to $11.32 for the same period last
     year, primarily due to higher price realization.

   * Revenues increased to $300.4 million for the second quarter
     of 2010 compared to $277.8 million for the second quarter of
     2009, primarily due to increased coal sales revenues.

The company's balance sheet for June 30, 2010, showed $1.4 billion
in total assets and $740.3 million in total liabilities, for a
$726.9 million total stockholders' deficit.

"Our operating performance was solid throughout the second
quarter," said Ben Hatfield, President and CEO of ICG.  "The
improved margins, compared to the second quarter of 2009, were
driven primarily by our moves to sell more metallurgical tons with
higher pricing and our continued focus on effective cost control."

Hatfield continued, "We're seeing a steady improvement in thermal
coal pricing, as utility coal inventories have fallen from record
highs in November 2009 and are slowly approaching normalized
levels.  Above-normal summer temperatures are expected to further
reduce coal stockpiles and provide more support for thermal
prices.  Although demand for metallurgical coal slowed in the
second half of the quarter, we believe this plateau is temporary
and not an indication of an extended change in the market
outlook."

                         Six-Month Results

Revenues for the first six months of 2010 totaled $589.0 million
compared to $582.8 million for the same period in 2009.  The
Company reported Adjusted EBITDA of $91.7 million in the first six
months of 2010 compared to $96.7 million in the first six months
of 2009.  First-half Adjusted EBITDA was reduced in 2010 by a
$10.0 million contract buyout and increased in 2009 by a
$7.7 million contract termination gain.  Excluding these
transactions, first-half Adjusted EBITDA would have been
$101.7 million in 2010 and $89.0 million in 2009.

Net loss for the first half of 2010 was $4.4 million, or $0.02 per
share on a diluted basis, versus net income of $14.1 million, or
$0.09 per share on a diluted basis, for the same period a year
ago.  Excluding the $10.0 million contract buyout and the
$28.1 million loss on the extinguishment of debt, pro forma net
income in the first six months of 2010 would have been
$19.7 million, or $0.10 per share on a diluted basis.  Excluding
the $7.7 million gain related to the contract termination, pro
forma net income in the first six months of 2009 would have been
$9.3 million, or $0.06 per share on a diluted basis.

                 Sales, Production and Reserves

ICG sold 4.1 million tons of coal during the second quarter of
2010 compared to 4.2 million tons during the second quarter of
2009.  Production totaled 4.0 million tons in the second quarter
of 2010 versus 4.2 million tons in the same period of 2009.
Metallurgical shipments of 622,000 tons represented a 421,000-ton
increase over the second quarter of the prior year.

As of June 30, 2010, ICG controlled approximately 1.1 billion tons
of coal reserves, located primarily in Illinois, Kentucky, West
Virginia, Maryland and Virginia.  Additionally, the Company
controlled approximately 431 million tons of non-reserve coal
deposits, which may be classified as reserves in the future as
additional drilling and geotechnical work is completed.

                         Liquidity and Debt

As of June 30, 2010, the Company had $205.3 million in cash and
has $33.3 million in borrowing capacity available under its new
credit agreement.

Debt outstanding as of June 30, 2010, totaled $365.3 million,
net of a $36.3 million discount, consisting primarily of
$115.0 million aggregate principal amount of newly issued 4.0%
Convertible Senior Notes and $200.0 million aggregate principal
amount of newly issued 9.125% Senior Secured Second-Priority
Notes.

                              Outlook

The Company has updated its guidance to reflect modifications to
its production mix and the global economic conditions affecting
the coal market:

   * For 2010, the Company expects to sell between 16.6 million
     and 16.8 million tons of coal, including 2.7 million to
     2.8 million tons of metallurgical coal.  The average selling
     price is projected to be $66.25 to $67.25 per ton, with an
     average cost of $51.75 to $52.75 per ton, excluding selling,
     general and administrative expenses.  The Company expects
     coal production to be between 15.8 million and 16.0 million
     tons.

   * Adjusted EBITDA, or earnings before deducting interest,
     income taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, loss on
     extinguishment of debt and noncontrolling interest, is
     expected to be in the range of $200 million to $220 million
     in 2010.

   * The Company anticipates 2010 capital expenditures of between
     $105.0 million and $115.0 million.

For 2011, the Company expects to produce and sell between
16.5 million and 17.5 million tons of coal, including 3.1 million
to 3.2 million tons of metallurgical coal.  The average selling
price is projected to be $72.00 to $77.00 per ton.

KRISPY KREME: Moody's Upgrades Corporate Family Rating to 'B3'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Krispy Kreme Doughnut
Corporation's ratings, including the Corporate Family Rating to B3
from Caa1, and the bank debt rating to B2 from B3.  The short term
Speculative Grade Liquidity.  Rating was affirmed at SGL-3.  The
rating outlook is stable.

The upgrade and stable outlook acknowledge Krispy Kreme's recovery
of credit metrics due to significant debt-paydown and modest
improvement in operating performance in the past year.  The
company was able to reduce its bank debt by more than 40% since
the beginning of 2009.  Operationally, margin has improved and
topline decline has decelerated as the company continued to
rationalize its domestic operations and expand its international
footprints.  The company's debt/EBITDA for the last twelve months
ended May 2, 2010, improved to 3.1x from above five times a year
ago.  Moody's expects that credit metrics will likely remain at
levels consistent with the B3 rating and liquidity to be adequate
in the near-to-medium term.

Also favorably, the B3 CFR reflects Krispy Kreme's strong brand
recognition, solid growth potential in the international markets
and geographic diversification.  Moody's also notes litigations
surrounding the lingering class action and shareholder derivative
actions that were brought against the company since 2004 have been
settled.

Despite the improved performance and credit metrics, the B3 CFR
incorporates Krispy Kreme's still weaker operating margin and
return on asset compared to other quick service restaurant peers
in the industry.  Moody's believes the low margins are partly
driven by low utilization/over capacity of its domestic stores,
particularly its company owned stores which generate roughly
2/3rds of the company's total revenues.  In addition, Moody's
rating opinion considers the company's earnings volatility due to
its significant exposure to commodity inputs, as well as operating
result sensitivity to sales volume given the high operating
leverage.  The rating also reflects Moody's view that the growth
prospect for its store in the US is somewhat limited considering
its singular product offering; while the international growth
opportunity seems more promising, these expansions could
potentially leave the company more exposed to some operating and
non-operating risks.

These ratings were upgraded:

* Corporate Family Rating -- to B3 from Caa1

* Probability of Default Rating -- to Caa1 from Caa2

* Senior secured revolving bank credit facility due 2013 -- to B2

LIBERTYBANK: Closed; Home Federal Bank Assumes All Deposits
-----------------------------------------------------------
LibertyBank of Eugene, Ore., was closed on Friday, July 30, 2010,
by the Oregon Division of Finance and Corporate Securities, which
appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as receiver.
To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and
assumption agreement with Home Federal Bank of Nampa, Idaho, to
assume all of the deposits of LibertyBank.

The 15 branches of LibertyBank will reopen during normal business
hours as branches of Home Federal Bank.  Depositors of LibertyBank
will automatically become depositors of Home Federal Bank.
Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no
need for customers to change their banking relationship in order
to retain their deposit insurance coverage.  Customers of
LibertyBank should continue to use their existing branch until
they receive notice from Home Federal Bank that it has completed
systems changes to allow other Home Federal Bank branches to
process their accounts as well.

As of March 31, 2010, LibertyBank had around $768.2 million in
total assets and $718.5 million in total deposits.  Home Federal
Bank paid the FDIC a premium of 1.0 percent for the deposits of
LibertyBank.  In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the
failed bank, Home Federal Bank agreed to purchase around
$419.7 million of the failed bank's assets.

The FDIC and Home Federal Bank entered into a loss-share
transaction on $300.0 million of LibertyBank's assets.  Home
Federal Bank will share in the losses on the asset pools covered
under the loss-share agreement.  The loss-share transaction is
projected to maximize returns on the assets covered by keeping
them in the private sector.  The transaction also is expected to
minimize disruptions for loan customers. For more information on
loss share, visit:

http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/lossshare/index.html

Customers who have questions about the transaction can call the
FDIC toll-free at 1-800-523-8159.  Interested parties also can
visit the FDIC's Web site at:

    http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/libertyor.html

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund
will be $115.3 million. Compared to other alternatives, Home
Federal Bank's acquisition was the least costly resolution for the
FDIC's DIF.  LibertyBank is the 108th FDIC-insured institution to
fail in the nation this year, and the third in Oregon.  The last
FDIC-insured institution closed in the state was Home Valley Bank,
Cave Junction, on July 23, 2010.

MACKINAW POWER: S&P Affirms 'BB-' Rating on $147 Mil. Senior Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it revised its recovery
rating on Mackinaw Power Holdings LLC's (Holdings) $147 million
senior term loan due 2015 to '1' from '2'.  The '1' recovery
rating on the senior term loan indicates expectations of a very
high (90% to 100%) recovery of principal in a default scenario.

The change in the recovery rating is due to higher valuations for
the power plants operating in the southern sub-region of the
Southeast Electric Reliability Council.  Driving this change was a
recent asset sale in the region of a 640 megawatt Sandersville
peaking unit by KGen LLC for about $130 million (or $203 per
kilowatt), creating a more favorable recovery scenario than was
previously assumed (about $125 - $150 per kW for combined-cycle
gas turbine plant and $50 per kW for peaking unit).

MARINA DISTRICT: Fitch Assigns 'B' Issuer Default Rating
--------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned initial ratings to Marina District
Finance Company, Inc.:

  -- Issuer Default Rating 'B';
  -- Senior secured credit facility 'BB/RR1';
  -- Senior secured first-lien notes 'BB-/RR2'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.  MDFC is the issuing subsidiary of
the entity that owns the Borgata resort casino in Atlantic City,
New Jersey.  MDFC is part of a 50/50 joint venture between Boyd
Gaming Corp. (IDR 'B+' with a Negative Outlook) and MGM Resorts
International (IDR 'CCC').  MGM's 50% interest in the Borgata JV
is currently being held in a divesture trust pursuant to an
agreement with New Jersey gaming authorities.  Boyd has the right
of first refusal on any offer for the property, so it remains in a
good position to monitor the divestiture process.

MDFC is proposing an issuance of $725 million of first-lien,
senior secured notes, which is expected to be split into two
tranches between 5-year and 8-year tenors.  In addition, MDFC is
entering into a new revolving credit facility with capacity of
$150 million that is expected to be $75 million drawn upon
closing.  The $800 million in expected proceeds from the
transaction will repay roughly $630 million that is outstanding on
MDFC's existing credit facility, fund a partner dividend of about
$150 million, and the balance will pay transaction fees.  Pursuant
to the amended operating agreement between MGM and Boyd related to
the sale of MGM's 50% interest in the Borgata JV, Boyd will
receive roughly $100 million from the one-time, transaction-
related dividend.

The primary considerations for the ratings of MDFC include:

  -- Borgata's high asset quality and market leading position in
     the nation's second largest market with an attractive tax-
     rate environment;

  -- the lack of geographic diversification and single-site nature
     of the stand-alone MDFC credit profile;

  -- a weak Atlantic City market that is not expected to improve
     meaningfully in the near term, as well as uncertainty
     regarding the potential for changes to the gaming environment
     in New Jersey and competing markets;

  -- Borgata's solid free cash flow profile supported by minimal
     development/project capex for the foreseeable future, that
     should support some absolute debt reduction over the next
     couple of years;

  -- pro forma leverage of roughly 4.3 times (x), which Fitch
     estimates may increase slightly in the near term before
     declining to the 4.00x-4.25x range through 2011 and below
     4.0x in 2012;

  -- pro forma interest coverage of around 2.3x, which Fitch
     estimates should remain comfortably above 2x over the next
     couple of years.

Fitch calculates adjusted EBITDA at Borgata was $185 million for
the last 12 months ended June 30, 2010.  Fitch anticipates further
near-term declines in Borgata's EBITDA due to the persistent
competitive pressure in surrounding markets, most recently the
addition of table games in Pennsylvania.

However, Borgata's free cash flow profile is solid, as Fitch
estimates roughly $50-$75 million in annual FCF after interest
costs and capex over the next couple of years.  The discretionary
FCF may be used for some absolute debt reduction and provides some
cushion that underpins Fitch's Stable Outlook on MDFC.

There are no maintenance financial covenants in the notes,
although Fitch expects a 2.0x coverage covenant for additional
indebtedness.  Fitch also expects the credit facility will have a
minimum EBITDA covenant of $150 million, a 4.0x leverage covenant
related to the restricted payment basket (although tax
distributions will still be allowed above 4.0x), and a $30 million
minimum liquidity covenant.

Mdfc Ratings Relative To Boyd:

Fitch recognizes:

  -- The Borgata is the most profitable casino asset in Boyd's
     portfolio and has value as the top asset (by far) in the
     second largest market in the U.S.;

  -- Boyd is the operator of the Borgata and managing member of
     the joint venture;

  -- due to an associated amendment to the JV operating agreement
     that resulted in an elimination of participation rights
     previously held by MGM, Boyd is now consolidating the
     financial results of Marina District Development Company,
     LLC, the intermediate holding company of MDFC, and
     reflecting a non-controlling interest for the 50% stake it
     does not own.

However, these factors support a weak linkage in the ratings:

  -- The debt at MDFC is non-recourse to Boyd and there are no
     cross default provisions to Boyd debt;

  -- the strategic linkage and synergy between MDDC/MDFC and the
     rest of Boyd's portfolio is limited: Borgata has its own
     separate loyalty program, there is minimal cross-market play,
     and there is no common brand between the Borgata and the rest
     of Boyd's portfolio.

Fitch believes that there would be little reason for Boyd to
provide significant support to MDFC in a distressed scenario at
the subsidiary level, particularly if the company maintains only
50% ownership after MGM sells its interest.  As such, the relative
probability of default and IDRs of MDFC and Boyd are only weakly
linked in Fitch's view.  Fitch will consider any impact to Boyd's
ratings concurrently with second quarter results, which will be
released on Aug. 3, 2010.  Fitch notes that given the weak
linkage, a downgrade of Boyd's IDR to 'B' would not impact the
MDFC IDR or other instrument ratings.

Recovery Ratings:

MDFC's Recovery Ratings reflect Fitch's expectations of relative
recovery characteristics of MDFC's obligations following default
and upon emergence from insolvency.  Based on its recovery
scenario, Fitch estimates full recovery of the bank debt, which
equates to a 'BB/RR1' rating or a three-notch positive
differential from the 'B' IDR.  Fitch estimates superior recovery
prospects for the first-lien secured notes in the 71%-90% range,
which equates to a 'BB?/RR2' rating or a two-notch positive
differential from the 'B' IDR.  The credit facility and the notes
are both secured by a first-priority lien on substantially all
material assets.  However, the credit facility has priority
payment in connection with any foreclosing of the collateral or
insolvency proceedings pursuant to an intercreditor agreement.  As
a result, the credit facility has priority in Fitch's recovery
waterfall analysis.


MARK BRUNELL: Signs 2-Year Contract with New York Jets
------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News reports Mark Brunell, who had been
the backup quarterback for this year's Super Bowl-winning New
Orleans Saints, signed a two-year contract with the New York Jets.
Before the Saints, Mr. Brunell played for the Washington Redskins,
Jacksonville Jaguars and Green Bay Packers.

Mark Brunell is a National Football League quarterback.
Mr. Brunell played for the Jacksonville Jaguars and has earned
more than $50 million playing football.  Mr. Brunell, a three-time
Pro Bowl selection, is involved with a real estate project that is
being foreclosed upon in Jacksonville Beach and other failed
investments in Michigan.

Mr. Brunell filed for Chapter 11 on June 25, 2010 (Bankr. M.D.
Fla. Case No. 10-05550).  In court papers, he listed $5.5 million
in assets and debts of $24.7 million.


MOMENTIVE PERFORMANCE: Bank Debt Trades at 8% Off
-------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Momentive
Performance Materials, Inc., is a borrower traded in the secondary
market at 92.15 cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday,
July 30, 2010, an increase of 2.21 percentage points from the
previous week, according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp.
and reported in The Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 250
basis points above LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank
loan matures on Dec. 5, 2013, and carries Moody's B1 rating and
Standard & Poor's CCC+ rating.  The loan is one of the biggest
gainers and losers among 193 widely quoted syndicated loans with
five or more bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

Momentive Performance Materials, Inc., is a producer of silicones
and silicone derivatives, and is engaged in the development and
manufacture of products derived from quartz and specialty
ceramics.  As of Dec. 31, 2008, the Company had 25 production
sites located worldwide, which allows it to produce the majority
of its products locally in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Momentive's customers include companies in industries, such as
Procter & Gamble, 3M, Goodyear, Unilever, Saint Gobain, Motorola,
L'Oreal, BASF, The Home Depot and Lowe's.

As of June 28, 2009, Momentive had $3.41 billion in total assets
on $3.96 billion in total liabilities, resulting in $551.8 billion
in stockholders' deficit.

The Troubled Company Reporter said September 28, 2009, that
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed all its ratings on
Momentive Performance Materials and its subsidiaries on
CreditWatch with positive implications, including the 'CCC-'
corporate credit rating on Momentive Performance Materials.  S&P
believes it is likely that the waiver, together with improving
operating performance, significantly reduces the likelihood of a
near-term covenant breach.  Quarterly EBITDA has been climbing
steadily since reaching a low of about $15 million (as calculated
for bank covenant purposes) in the first quarter of 2009.  It was
$64 million in the second quarter, and management expects it to be
between $84 million and $94 million in the third quarter.


MXENERGY HOLDINGS: Consummates Debt & Equity Restructuring
----------------------------------------------------------
MXenergy Holdings Inc. consummated a debt and equity restructuring
on September 22, 2009.  In connection with the Restructuring, the
Company entered into an agreement with certain stockholders.  The
Stockholders Agreement contains customary provisions including
provisions relating to certain approval rights, preemptive rights,
restrictions on transfer, rights of first refusal, tag-along
rights, drag-along rights and other customary provisions.

On July 26, 2010, the Company entered into Amendment No. 1 to the
Stockholders Agreement pursuant to which the definition of
"Prohibited Transaction" in Section 3.1 of the Stockholders
Agreement was amended to remove the prohibition against transfers
of certain equity securities that would result in the Company's
meeting the stock ownership requirement of Section 542(a)(2) of
the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

On July 27, 2010, the third amended and restated certificate of
incorporation and the fourth amended and restated bylaws of the
Company became effective.

The Certificate of Incorporation authorizes 200,000,000 shares of
Common Stock, consisting of 50,000,000 shares of Class A Common
Stock, 10,000,000 shares of Class B Common Stock, 40,000,000
shares of Class C Common Stock and 100,000,000 shares of Class D
Common Stock.  The Certificate of Incorporation and the Bylaws
contain customary provisions including provisions relating to
certain approval rights, preemptive rights, restrictions on
transfer, rights of first refusal, tag-along rights, drag-along
rights and other customary provisions.  The Certificate of
Incorporation, among other things, adjusts director and committee
member compensation, reduces the number of committees of the board
of directors and revises the definitions of "Financial Expert" and
"Independent Director."

Specifically, effective as of January 1, 2010, the Company will
pay each Independent Director a retainer of $50,000 per year, a
retainer of $10,000 year for serving on the executive,
compensation and governance committee, a retainer of $10,000 year
for serving on the risk oversight committee and a retainer of
$12,000 per year for serving on the audit committee.  The chairman
of each of the executive, compensation and governance committee
and the risk oversight committee will receive an additional
retainer of $5,000 per year, and the chairman of the audit
committee will receive an additional retainer of $3,000 per year.
The Chairman of the board of directors, if he or she is an
independent director, will receive an additional retainer of
$25,000 per year.  In addition, the Company will issue equity
securities, pursuant to a management equity plan, as follows:

   i) each Independent Director will receive equity securities
      with a value of $25,000 per year; and

  ii) the Chairman of the board of directors, if the Chairman is
      an Independent Director, will receive an additional annual
      issuance of equity securities with a value of $25,000 per
      year.

The Company also will pay each Independent Director $2,000 for
attendance in person at each regular or special board meeting or
committee meeting and $500 for attendance by telephone at each
regular or special board or committee meeting.  Any adjustment to
director compensation will be subject to the approval of the
stockholders of the Company.

The Certificate of Incorporation also reduces the number of
required committees of the board of directors from five to three
by combining the former executive committee, compensation
committee and governance committee into one committee.   The board
of directors will have the following three standing committees
whose membership will be determined by the board of directors: an
executive, compensation and governance committee, an audit
committee and a risk oversight committee.  A majority of the
directors serving on each board of directors committee will be
Class A Directors.  Subject to satisfaction of the qualification
requirements, the executive, compensation and governance committee
will also include at least the Class B Director and at least one
Class C Director and the audit committee will include at least one
Class C Director, subject to applicable committee membership
requirements, if any.

The Certificate of Incorporation revises the definition of
"Financial Expert" to mean a director who, as determined by the
board of directors, has the attributes of an "audit committee
financial expert" as defined in Item 407(d)(5) of Regulation S-K
promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
The Certificate of Incorporation also revises the definition of
"Independent Director" to mean a director who, as determined by
the board of directors, has no material relationship with the
Company and has no current or prior relationship with the Company,
any holder of shares of Common Stock or any member of management
of the Company that might cause such director to act other than
entirely independently with respect to all issues that come before
the board of directors.

The Bylaws revise the notice of board of directors meetings
required to permit delivery of such notice to directors via
facsimile or electronic transmission and remove the requirement
that such notices be confirmed by a subsequent written notice
delivered via overnight mail.

On June 21, 2010, the Company commenced a written consent
solicitation of stockholders, recommending a vote in favor of the
adoption of the Certificate of Incorporation, Bylaws and Amendment
No. 1 to the Stockholders Agreement.  Final results from the
consent solicitation, tabulated as of July 26, 2010, indicate that
the Company received more than the requisite number of consents to
approve and adopt the Certificate of Incorporation, Bylaws and
Amendment No. 1 to the Stockholders Agreement.

Specifically, as of July 26, 2010, 41,419,000 shares representing
76.5% of the 54,126,351 total shares of issued and outstanding

NEXCEN BRANDS: Faces Class Action Lawsuit in NY Supreme Court
-------------------------------------------------------------
NexCen Brands Inc., members of the Company's board of directors
and management and Global Franchise Group LLC and its parent
entity have been named as defendants in a purported class action
lawsuit brought in the Supreme Court of the State of New York and
captioned Soheila Rahbari v. NexCen Brands, Inc., et al., Index
No. 651063/2010.

The complaint was served on the Company on July 26, 2010.  The
complaint alleges, among other things, that certain of the
Company's directors and officers breached their fiduciary duties
of candor, loyalty, due care, independence, good faith and fair
dealing in connection with the proposed sale of the Company's
franchise business assets to GFG.  Among other things, the
plaintiff seeks an injunction prohibiting the consummation of the
sale of the Company's franchise business assets.

On July 28, 2010, the Company removed the lawsuit to the United
States District Court for the Southern District of New York.  The
Company believes the claims asserted in the complaint are without
merit and intends to vigorously defend against this action.

NGPL PIPECO: Moody's Downgrades Senior Unsec. Ratings to 'Ba1'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded NGPL PipeCo LLC's senior
unsecured debt ratings to Ba1 from Baa3.  Moody's also assigned a
Loss Given Default Rating of LGD 4 - 50% to the Ba1 notes, a
Corporate Family Rating of Ba1, a Probability of Default Rating of
Ba1, and a Speculative-Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-3.  The
rating outlook is stable.  These rating actions complete a review
for downgrade initiated on May 14, 2010, and follow the company's
recent rate settlement which resulted from the Federal Energy
Regulatory Commission's Section 5 investigation into the rates of
Natural Gas Pipeline of America (Natural), the company's principal
subsidiary.

"As a result of this settlement, NGPL's cash flows will step down,
resulting in a significant reduction in debt coverage and
financial flexibility over the next few years," said Moody's Vice
President Mihoko Manabe.

The FERC has not yet given its final order, but the settlement is
unopposed by the parties involved.  The settlement lowers maximum
allowed transportation and storage rates and fuel retention
factors, which includes fuel and gas lost and unaccounted for.
Under the new rates, Natural's margins will decrease overall, but
most dramatically in the operational sales of the net fuel the
pipeline collected under its old fuel retention factors.
Operational sales under the old rates historically accounted for
roughly a fifth to a third of Natural's margins, which helped to
prompt the Section 5 investigation.

Rates will be reduced in phases over the coming year.  Based on
the rates that were in effect as of April 2010, the fuel retention
factors will be decreased by 30% as of July 1, 2010, and by
another 15% as of June 30, 2011.  Natural's transportation rates
will decrease by 3% as of November 1, 2010, by another 2% on April
1, 2011, and a further 3% as of July 1, 2011.  Storage rates will
decrease by 3% on November 1, 2010.  These rate changes will only
affect contracts under maximum allowed tariff rates.  Contracts
that are discounted from the new maximum rate as well as those
that are negotiated (about a third of existing contracts) will not
be affected by the settlement, but as those contracts roll over,
they could also reflect lower rates.

Moody's notes that Natural faces some large contract expirations
in 2013 including those with Nicor, its largest shipper.
Natural's contract terms have gotten shorter over the last few
years, with the average transportation contract term of
approximately 2 years and average storage contract term of
approximately 4 years, in part reflecting the relatively short
time left on the Nicor contract.  The shorter tenors also suggest
that certain marketing-oriented shippers are shortening their
contracts while they await better basis spreads and weigh their
growing gas supply options.  Natural's average contract life is
much shorter than the current 8 year average for Moody's peer
group of pipelines.  Also around year-end 2012, the company faces
substantial refinancing risk as $1.25 billion of its current
$3 billion of debt comes due.

NGPL expects that the rate reductions from the settlement alone
could decrease future pre-interest, after-tax cash flow by
approximately $25 to $70 million as they are phased in over the
coming year.  The first full year under the rate settlement will
be in 2012.  These decreases equate to 7% and 21%, respectively,
of NGPL's reported funds flow from operations of $317 million for
the last twelve months ended March 2010.  Cash flows could be
further eroded over time from contracts not directly impacted by
the settlement that could be renewed at lower rates.  Against some
$3 billion of long-term debt, Moody's estimates that NGPL's funds
flow from operations-to-debt ratio, could decline from the 10.5%
in the last twelve months ended March 2010 to the 8% range if
funds flow from operations were to decrease in the 20% range.
Moody's considers this ratio to be too leveraged for investment
grade, even if it is supported by a relatively stable asset like
Natural.

For the last twelve months ended March 2010, earnings before
interest, taxes, and depreciation (EBITDA) according to the
covenant calculation under NGPL's revolver was $643 million,
resulting in a debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 4.7 times, which is
significantly under the 5.5 times limit under the covenant.  This
calculation excludes the non-cash pre-tax impairment charge of
$550 million in the March quarter which resulted from the
settlement.  If the March 2010 EBITDA were to decline by 20%,
debt-to-EBITDA would be 5.8 times, exceeding this covenant.
Moody's notes that the risk of such a covenant breach is not
immediate because the EBITDA is calculated on a trailing four
quarters' basis, but the headroom under this covenant will shrink
over the next several quarters.  The stable outlook is based on an
expectation of NGPL renegotiating the financial covenant so as to
avoid a breach.

Despite the challenges of the rate settlement, higher leverage and
less financial flexibility, material upcoming contracting and
refinancing risks, Natural is, in Moody's opinion, still a
substantial asset and a critical piece of natural gas
infrastructure in the Midwest.  The physical integration with its
core utility customers lends a market-pull dynamic that makes its
business risk profile better than those of some other speculative-
grade pipelines that have stronger financial prospects.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Ex-Employees Can File Claims Until Oct. 29
-----------------------------------------------------------
Nortel Networks Corp. and its four Canada-based affiliates sought
and obtained an order from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice,
authorizing their former employees to file applications of claims
payment until October 29, 2010.

Former Nortel employees who are in financial constraints due to
illness and ineligibility for pension or employment insurance
benefits are entitled to apply for immediate payments of their
claims.  The payments are considered advances against future
distributions under a plan of compromise or arrangement based on
the claims of those employees.  A mechanism for immediate
payments of those claims was approved by the Canadian Court on
July 30, 2009.

Ernst & Young Inc., the firm appointed to monitor the assets of
NNC and its affiliates, disclosed in its 50th monitor report that
there remains C $636,000 of the C$750,000 that was made available
for payment of claims pursuant to the July 30, 2009 Order.

Ernst & Young said that while those employees who received
payments should also have claims against NNC and its affiliates,
it is not anticipated that any distribution under a plan of
compromise or arrangement will occur in the near term.

NORTEL NETWORKS: Has $5.7 Bil. Cash at June 26, Says Monitor
------------------------------------------------------------
Ernst & Young Inc., the firm appointed to monitor the assets of
Nortel Networks Corp. and four of its affiliates that filed for
creditor protection under Canada's Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act, filed its 50th monitor report with the Ontario
Superior Court of Justice.

The Monitor Report provides updates on the consolidated cash
position and liquidity of NNC and its subsidiaries as of June 26,
2010; actual receipts and disbursements; and cash flow forecast,
among other things.

Ernst & Young noted that as of June 26, 2010, NNC and its
subsidiaries had consolidated cash balance of about $5.7 billion,
including $2.6 billion of total treasury cash.  Their
consolidated cash balance is held globally in various Nortel
units and joint ventures.

As of June 26, 2010, the Nortel companies based in North America
had cash available for operations and post-filing intercompany
settlements of about $967 million compared to a gross cash
position of about $1 billion.  Of this, about $276 million is
held by the Canada-based Nortel units while approximately
$766 million is held by the U.S.-based units.

The administrators of Nortel Networks UK and other foreign-based
units had available cash of approximately $699 million for
operations and post-filing intercompany settlements.  Nortel
entities in Europe, Middle East and Africa that are not in
administration had about $21 million of available cash.
Meanwhile, Nortel entities in the Asia Pacific Region had about
$428 million of available cash for operations and intercompany
settlements.

NETAS, a joint venture in which NNC and its subsidiaries have a
53% stake, had approximately $67 million of cash, of which about
$35 million represents Nortel's proportionate share.

Nortel Networks (CALA) Inc.'s available cash was $90 million as
of June 26, 2010.  Other Nortel units in the Caribbean and Latin
America that are not in bankruptcy had about $45 million of
available cash, which is expected to be used to fund their
domestic operations and intercompany settlements.

                    Divestiture Proceeds

Divesture proceeds of about $3.03 billion are being held in
escrow by various escrow agents, the Monitor Report also reveals.

The funds held in escrow include about $2.8 billion held by
JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., until an agreement is reached
regarding allocation of those proceeds to various Nortel legal
entities.  Divestiture proceeds held in escrow by JPMorgan relate
to:

  * $1.010 million from the sale of Code Division Multiple
    Access (CDMA) business and Long Term Evolution (LTE)
    assets;

  * $18 million from the sale of the Layer 4-7 business;

  * $10 million from the sale of the Next Generation Packet
    Core business;

  * $899 million from the sale of Enterprise Solutions
    business; and

  * $627 million from the sale of Optical Networking and Carrier
    Ethernet business.

  * $90 million from the sale of the Global System for Mobile

    Application Solutions (CVAS) assets.

                Actual Receipts and Disbursements
                 from March 28 to June 26, 2010

The actual consolidated net cash inflow of NNC and the other
CCAA applicants for the period from March 28 to June 26, 2010,
was $24 million.

Actual net cash flow exceeded forecast by $69.1 million.  The
closing available cash balance was higher than forecast by about
$5.7 million as a result of a favorable foreign exchange
translation on Canadian dollar denominated cash balances due to
the appreciation of the Canadian dollar relative to the U.S.
dollar.  Meanwhile, restricted cash decreased by $5.3 million.

               Cash Flow Forecast for the Period
                  June 27 to October 30, 2010

NNC and the other CCAA applicants, with the assistance of Ernst &
Young, prepared an 18-week cash flow forecast for the period
June 27 to October 30, 2010.

The cash flow forecast indicates that the CCAA applicants will
have total receipts of $301.9 million and total disbursements of
$362.6 million resulting in a net cash outflow of $60.7 million
during the forecast period.

During the forecast period, it is assumed that Nortel Networks
Limited does not make any additional draws pursuant to the NNI
Loan Agreement beyond the $75 million drawn prior to February 1,
2009, and due on December 31, 2010.  The most recent cash payment
in respect of accrued interest occurred in March 2010.

The June 27 forecast includes the next scheduled interest payment
of $3.8 million to be paid in September 2010.

As of June 26, 2010, the CCAA applicants had available cash
balances of about $216.1 million, excluding restricted cash and
unavailable cash of about $59.5 million.

purchase and assumption agreement with State Bank and Trust
Company of Macon, Ga., to assume all of the deposits of NorthWest
Bank and Trust.

The two branches of NorthWest Bank and Trust will reopen during
normal business hours as branches of State Bank and Trust Company.
Depositors of NorthWest Bank and Trust will automatically become
depositors of State Bank and Trust Company.  Deposits will
continue to be insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for
customers to change their banking relationship in order to retain
their deposit insurance coverage.  Customers of NorthWest Bank and
Trust should continue to use their existing branch until they
receive notice from State Bank and Trust Company that it has
completed systems changes to allow other State Bank and Trust
Company branches to process their accounts as well.

As of March 31, 2010, NorthWest Bank and Trust had around
$167.7 million in total assets and $159.4 million in total
deposits.  State Bank and Trust Company did not pay the FDIC a
premium for the deposits of NorthWest Bank and Trust.  In addition
to assuming all of the deposits of the failed bank, State Bank and
Trust Company agreed to purchase essentially all of the failed
bank's assets.

The FDIC and State Bank and Trust Company entered into a loss-
share transaction on $107.6 million of NorthWest Bank and Trust's
assets.  State Bank and Trust Company will share in the losses on
the asset pools covered under the loss-share agreement.  The loss-
share transaction is projected to maximize returns on the assets
covered by keeping them in the private sector.  The transaction
also is expected to minimize disruptions for loan customers.  For
more information on loss share, visit:

Customers who have questions about the transaction can call the
FDIC toll-free at 1-800-591-2916.  Interested parties also can
visit the FDIC's Web site at:

   http://www.fdic.gov/bank/individual/failed/NorthWestga.html

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund
will be $39.8 million.  Compared to other alternatives, State Bank
and Trust Company's acquisition was the least costly resolution
for the FDIC's DIF.  NorthWest Bank and Trust is the 104th FDIC-
insured institution to fail in the nation this year, and the 11th
in Georgia.  The last FDIC-insured institution closed in the state
was Crescent Bank and Trust Company, Jasper, on July 23, 2010.


NUVEEN INVESTMENTS: Moody's Keeps Ratings, Gives Positive Outlook
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the ratings of Nuveen
Investments, Inc., and changed the outlook for the ratings to
positive from stable following the company's announcement that it
has entered into an agreement to acquire the long-only assets of
First American Fund Advisors, a subsidiary of US Bancorp (Aa3/P-
1/Neg).

Under the terms of the agreement, Nuveen is offering US Bancorp a
9.5% equity stake in Nuveen Investments, Inc. and $80 million
cash.  The transaction is not contingent on financing and, subject
to regulatory and board approval, is expected to close by
December 31, 2010.

Moody's stated that Nuveen's outlook change reflects improving
fundamentals at Nuveen and expected near-term financial and
longer-term strategic benefits of the FAF Advisors acquisition.
Nuveen has achieved modest improvements in financial performance
over the last three quarters ending March 31 due to a combination
of strong relative investment performance across most products and
positive net flows.  In a moderating operating environment for
asset managers, Moody's expects to see measured improvements in
Nuveen's financial flexibility and added covenant cushion.
Moody's noted that FAF Advisors will significantly enhance
Nuveen's market position as it fills important products gaps and
adds scale to Nuveen's mutual fund business and taxable fixed
income offerings.  Moody's believe Nuveen's ability to retain FAF
Advisors' assets under management will be supported by US
Bancorp's equity stake in Nuveen and the existence of a 5-year
investment services agreement between Nuveen and US Bank Wealth
Management group.

Moody's positive outlook is tempered by uncertainty surrounding a
recently-filed shareholder lawsuit against Nuveen and its
potential impact on the company given the relative importance of
the closed-end fund business to Nuveen overall.  At a minimum,
Moody's believe the lawsuit will be a distraction to management.

Overall, Moody's still views Nuveen's leverage as clearly
excessive, particularly in the context of elevated market
volatility.  The Caa1 corporate family rating incorporates a high
potential for a modest capital restructuring.

Nuveen's ratings could be upgraded if uncertainty around the
shareholder suit is removed, the company can sustain positive
financial performance momentum and it successfully integrates FAF
Advisor's long-term business and benefits from near-term capture
of expected cost synergies.

Ratings affirmed include:

  -- Corporate Family Rating of Caa1;

  -- Senior secured $250 million, revolver due 2013 at B3

  -- Senior secured $2,087 million, term loan due 2014 at B3

  -- Senior secured $500 million, 2nd lien term loan due 2015 at
     Caa2

  -- Senior unsecured $785 million, notes due 2015 at Caa3

  -- Senior unsecured $300 million, notes due 2015 at Caa3

  -- Senior unsecured $146 million, notes due 2010 at Caa3

Nuveen Investments, Inc., headquartered in Chicago, is a US-
domiciled holding company whose subsidiaries provide investment
management products and services to retail and institutional
investors predominantly in the US.  The company's assets under
management were $150.2 billion as of June 30, 2010.

The last rating action was on July 8, 2009, when the Caa1
corporate family rating and debt ratings of Nuveen Investments,
Inc. were affirmed and a rating of Caa2 was assigned to a new
second-lien senior secured term loan.

OPUS SOUTH: Opus Corp. Seeks to Enjoin California Lawsuit
---------------------------------------------------------
Opus Corporation, Gerald Rauenhorst 1982 Irrevocable Trust F/B/O
Grandchildren, Gerald Rauenhorst 1982 Irrevocable Trust F/B/O
Children, Keith P. Bednarowski, individually, Luz Campa,
individually, and Mark Rauenhorst, individually, ask Bankruptcy
Judge Hale for the Northern District of Texas to enforce the
terms of the Opus West Debtors' Joint Chapter 11 Plan of
Liquidation.

Opus Corp., et al., specifically ask the Bankruptcy Court to
enforce the Plan injunction on certain Opus West creditors known
as the "Hill Plaintiffs" who recently filed a lawsuit against
them in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of
California, Santa Ana Division.

Donald R. Rector, Esq., at Glast Phillips & Murray P.C., in
Dallas, Texas, asserts that the filing of the California Lawsuit
is a contravention of the rights of the "Surviving Officer" and
the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court.  He notes that the
Surviving Officer was appointed under the Opus West Plan to have
the exclusive right of pursuing all causes of action on behalf of
Opus West's estates.

"In an attempt to avoid [the Bankruptcy] Court's authority and
supplement their own recoveries at the expense of similarly
situated creditors, certain Opus West Creditors filed a Complaint
on June 29, 2010, [in a California District Court] based on the
same alleged fraudulent transfer claims that are being pursued by
the Surviving Officer before [the Bankruptcy] Court," Mr. Rector
contends.

The Transfers being pursued by the Surviving Officers are the
subject of an adversary complaint filed by Opus West and the
Surviving Officer against the Opus Corp. Parties and certain
additional parties for transfers made by Opus West to Opus Corp.
between 2006 and 2008.  The Surviving Officer, under the
Adversary Complaint, alleged that the Transfers were fraudulent
and sought to recover the Transfers for the benefit of Opus
West's estates.

Mr. Rector asserts that to allow the Hill Plaintiffs to prosecute
the California Lawsuit would not only violate the Bankruptcy
Court's order and the terms of the confirmed Opus West Plan, but
would contravene long-established policies under the Bankruptcy
Code relating to equality of distribution among all creditors.

The Hill Plaintiffs are composed of former employees of Opus
West, except Sara Gordon, whose claim is based on amounts owed to
her as part of a divorce settlement with James Fritcher.  The
Hill Plaintiffs consist of:

  -- Jefferson Hill,
  -- Tom Roberts,
  -- Paul Marshall,
  -- Thomas Schaal, Jr.,
  -- Charles Vogel,
  -- John Greer,
  -- Claire Janssen,
  -- Daniel Haug,
  -- Matthew Montgomery,
  -- James Fritcher,
  -- Sara Gordon,
  -- Don Little, Jr.,
  -- Greg Wattson,
  -- Jeffrey Dickerson,
  -- Randy Ackerman, and
  -- Jeff Roberts.

The California Lawsuit contains 11 causes of action, all of which
are predicated on the Transfers.  Four of the causes of action
seek to set aside the Transfers as alleged fraudulent transfers.
The remaining seven causes of action are based on various
theories of conspiracy, intentional interference with contract,
negligent interference with contract, violation of the California
Business & Professions Code, conversion, intentional interference
with prospective economic advantage, and the Racketeer Influenced
and Corrupt Organizations Act.  Mr. Rector asserts that the basis
for the harm alleged in each of the claims is the Transfers being
alleged as fraudulent transfers.

A full-text copy of the California Complaint is available for
free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/OpWCalComp.pdf

The Surviving Officer is already pursuing recovery of the
Transfers as alleged fraudulent transfers in the Opus West
Adversary Proceeding, Mr. Rector reiterates.  He expounds that
none of the Hill Plaintiffs' claims are causes of action that are
independent from the Surviving Officer's causes of action before
the Bankruptcy Court.

                    Hill Plaintiffs Respond

On behalf of the Hill Plaintiffs, Greg K. Hafif, Esq., in
Claremont, California, asserts that the dispute between his
clients and the Opus Corp. Parties is a dispute between third
parties, thus the administration of the Opus West Debtors'
estates will not be affected.

Mr. Hafif contends that the pension funds at issue in the
California Lawsuit belong to the Hill Plaintiffs and are not
assets of the bankruptcy estates of the Opus West Debtors.

The Hill Plaintiffs are seeking to recover pension funds,
totaling $32,430,098.

For these reasons, the Hill Plaintiffs ask the Court to deny the
Opus Corp. Parties' request.

                    Opus Corp. Parties Answer

The Opus Corp. Parties assert that only the Bankruptcy Court has
jurisdiction to solve the dispute because the Parties' arguments
require interpretation of the Plan and the Confirmation Order,
which the Bankruptcy Court retained exclusive jurisdiction.

Mr. Rector contends that the California Complaint contains
multiple factual inaccuracies that the Opus Corp. Parties dispute
but did not address in the request because they were outside the
scope of the request.

"But the Opus West Employees' attempts to mislead [the Bankruptcy
Court] now compel the Opus Corp. Parties to correct some of these
inaccuracies," Mr. Rector says.

Specifically, the Opus West Employees' claims that the amounts
they are seeking to recover from the Opus Corp. Parties are
"pension funds" are patently false, as shown in Debtor Opus West
Corporation's Statement of Financial Affairs, its list of
unsecured creditors, and the proofs of claim filed by the Opus
West Employees, Mr. Rector reveals.

Opus West had one qualified pension plan, which it listed in its
Statement of Financial Affairs: the Opus Retirement Savings Plan.
As a retirement plan subject to the Internal Revenue Code, the
funds in the Pension Plan are set aside in trust for its
beneficiaries.  According to Mr. Rector, the Pension Plan is
fully funded and the Opus West Employees have not asserted any
claims with respect to the Pension Plan.

The Opus West Employees attempt to confuse the Bankruptcy Court
into believing that the unfunded, non-qualified programs cited in
the California Complaint are fully funded and qualified pension
plans, like the Pension Plan, Mr. Rector argues.  "Opus West did
not -- and was not required to -- set aside funds in trust for
the programs," he says.

For this reason also, the Hill Plaintiffs cannot pursue the
alleged fraudulent transfers, Mr. Rector contends.  He expounds
that the Hill Plaintiffs' arguments fail because: (i) the Opus
West Employees are not owed any "pension funds," and (ii) the
alleged fraudulent transfers between Opus West and Opus Corp.
that they seek to recover were transfers of annual profits and
tax payments.

Accordingly, the Opus Corp. Parties ask the Bankruptcy Court to
grant their request.

                   Hill Plaintiffs Talk Back

Mr. Hafif says that in order for the Bankruptcy Court to reach a
decision, it needs to ask the question of who owns the pension
funds?  The Hill Plaintiffs claim they do, while the Opus Corp.
Parties claim that Opus West owns the pension funds.

The Bankruptcy Court does not have subject-matter jurisdiction
over the pension plans because they are not assets of Opus West's
bankrupt estate, Mr. Hafif reiterates.  He adds that the pension
plan dispute exists independent of the bankruptcy environment
because the pension funds belong to the Hill Plaintiffs pursuant
to the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act and do not
belong to Opus West's estate.

"Moreover, this dispute cannot simply be transferred to the
district court judge in Dallas for his opinion, after the case
has been filed in Santa Ana, California, because that would be
the same as forum shopping," Mr. Hafif argues.  He adds that "the
Opus Corp. Parties have a forum and can raise these arguments in
Santa Ana as part of their answer or motion to dismiss."

The Hill Plaintiffs also notes that employee wage deductions
intended as ERISA plan contributions are "plan assets,"
regardless of whether the money is ever in fact conveyed in
relation to the plan.

                         *     *     *

With regard to the Hill Plaintiffs' argument that the Bankruptcy
Court lacks jurisdiction to interpret the Plan and the injunction
provided therein, Judge Hale does not find the argument
persuasive because interpretation of the Plan is a matter arising
under the Bankruptcy Code and is therefore within the Bankruptcy
Court's core jurisdiction.

The Bankruptcy Court ruled that certain claims subject to the
California Lawsuit are, at heart, fraudulent transfer claims so
as to be covered by the Plan and Confirmation Order, which are
property of the Opus West estate and must be pursued for the
benefit of all creditors.

For this reason, the Hill Plaintiffs are enjoined from pursuing
the Opus Corp. Parties certain causes of action related to the
Transfers, the Bankruptcy Court held.

However, with regard to claims that the Opus Corp. Parties
intentionally and negligently interfered with contracts,
violation of the California Business Code, and violated the RICO,
the Bankruptcy Court opined that the Plan and the Confirmation
Order do not affect the Hill Plaintiffs' rights to bring the
claims.  The Bankruptcy further held that the RICO claim is not
property of the Opus West estate.

OSI RESTAURANT: Bank Debt Trades at 14% Off in Secondary Market
---------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which OSI Restaurant
Partners, Inc., is a borrower traded in the secondary market at
86.25 cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, July 30,
2010, an increase of 0.84 percentage points from the previous
week, according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and
reported in The Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 225 basis
points above LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan
matures on May 9, 2014, and carries Moody's B3 rating and Standard
& Poor's B+ rating.  The loan is one of the biggest gainers and
losers among 193 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more
bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

OSI Restaurant Partners, Inc., is the #3 operator of casual-dining
spots (behind Darden Restaurants and Brinker International), with
more than 1,400 locations in the U.S. and 20 other countries.  Its
flagship Outback Steakhouse chain boasts more than 950 locations
that serve steak, chicken, and seafood in Australian-themed
surroundings.  OSI also operates the Carrabba's Italian Grill
chain, with about 240 locations.  Other concepts include Bonefish
Grill, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse, and Cheeseburger In Paradise.
Most of the restaurants are company owned.  A group led by
Chairman Chris Sullivan took the company private in 2007.


PACIFIC CAPITAL: Moody's Reviews 'C' Rating for Possible Upgrade
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service continued the review for possible
upgrade of the long-term ratings of Pacific Capital Bancorp
(issuer C) and its subsidiary, Pacific Capital Bank, N.A. (bank
financial strength E, long-term deposits Caa1).  This review began
on April 29, 2010.

The extension of the review follows the company's announcement
that it has satisfied the critical closing conditions of its
agreement with SB Acquisition Company LLC, a subsidiary of Ford
Financial Fund, L.P., to receive an equity investment of
$500 million.  The company expects to close the transaction on
August 31, 2010, subject to regulatory approval.

The review remains focused on Pacific Capital's ability to
complete this capital transaction.  Given the definitive exchange
agreement with the U.S. Treasury Department regarding the TARP
preferred stock, the likelihood of completion has increased.
Nonetheless as previously indicated, Moody's does not expect to
complete its ratings review until the investment transaction is
consummated.  Another aspect of the review is how this investment
will influence the strategic direction and franchise of the
company.

The last rating action was on April 29, 2010, when Moody's placed
the long-term ratings on review for possible upgrade.

Pacific Capital Bancorp, which is headquartered in Santa Barbara,
CA, reported total assets of $7.1 billion as of June 30, 2010.

PENN NATIONAL: Bank Debt Trades at 2% Off in Secondary Market
-------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Penn National
Gaming, Inc., is a borrower traded in the secondary market at
97.79 cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, July 30,
2010, an increase of 1.18 percentage points from the previous
week, according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and
reported in The Wall Street Journal.  The loan matures on May 26,
2012.  The Company pays 200 basis points above LIBOR to borrow
under the facility.  The bank debt carries Moody's Ba2 rating and
Standard & Poor's BB + rating.  The loan is one of the biggest
gainers and losers among 193 widely quoted syndicated loans with
five or more bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

On Oct. 6, 2009, Moody's Investors Service stated that Penn
National's recent statement that it is "looking at" the
Fontainebleau project in Las Vegas currently has no impact on its
ratings or negative outlook.  The last rating action on Penn
National was Aug. 10, 2009, when Moody's assigned a B1 rating to
the company's proposed $250 million senior subordinated notes due
2019 and affirmed its other ratings.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 12, 2009,
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to Penn National
Gaming, Inc.'s proposed $250 million senior subordinated notes due
2019.  The company's Ba2 Corporate Family Rating, Ba2 Probability
of Default Rating, Ba2 senior secured bank loan rating, and B1
senior subordinated note rating were affirmed.  The rating outlook
is negative.

On Aug. 11, 2009, the TCR reported that Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services assigned its issue-level and recovery ratings to
Wyomissing, Pennsylvania-based Penn National Gaming, Inc.'s
proposed $250 million senior subordinated notes due 2019.  S&P
rated the notes 'BB-' (at the same level as the corporate credit
rating on the company) with a recovery rating of '4', indicating
its expectation of average (30%-50%) recovery for noteholders in
the event of a payment default.  Proceeds from the proposed notes,
along with cash on hand or draws under the revolving credit
facility, will be used to repay a portion of the term loan A bank
facility and to repurchase outstanding 6.875% senior subordinated
notes pursuant to a recently announced cash tender offer.

At the same time, S&P affirmed its issue-level rating on Penn
National's outstanding senior subordinated notes at 'BB-' (the
same as the corporate credit rating).  The recovery rating on
these loans remains at '4', indicating its expectation of average
(30%-50%) recovery for noteholders in the event of a payment
default.  S&P also affirmed its issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured credit facilities at 'BB+' (two notches
higher than the 'BB-' corporate credit rating).  The recovery
rating on these loans remains at '1', indicating its expectation
of very high (90%-100%) recovery for lenders in the event of a
payment default.

Penn National Gaming, Inc., owns and operates nineteen gaming and
racing facilities in fourteen U.S. and one Canadian jurisdiction.
The company generates about $2.4 billion of annual net revenues.


PHARMATHENE INC.: Gives NYSE Amex Listing Compliance Plan Update
----------------------------------------------------------------
PharmAthene, Inc., disclosed that on July 26, 2010 it received a
letter from the NYSE Amex LLC, stating that PharmAthene is not in
compliance with the continued listing standards specified in
Sections 1003(a)(i), (ii) and (iii) of the NYSE Amex Company
Guide, because it has stockholders' equity of less than $2.0
million, $4.0 million and $6.0 million and losses from continuing
operations and/or net losses in two of its three most recent
fiscal years, three of its four most recent fiscal years and its
five most recent fiscal years, respectively.

Under Section 1003(a) of the Company Guide, the NYSE Amex would
not normally consider suspending dealings in, or removing from
listing, the securities of an issuer which is below the minimum
stockholders' equity requirements if the issuer sustains a total
market capitalization of at least $50 million, among other things.
PharmAthene's market capitalization, as defined by NYSE Amex rules
and using the closing share price on July 27, 2010 of $1.45, is
approximately $47.6 million.

The NYSE Amex stated in its letter that in order to maintain its
listing, PharmAthene must submit a plan by August 26, 2010,
addressing how it intends to regain compliance with Sections
1003(a)(i), (ii) and (iii) of the Company Guide by January 26,
2012. If the NYSE Amex accepts the plan, PharmAthene will be able
to continue its listing during such time and will be subject to
continued periodic review by the NYSE Amex staff.  If the plan is
not submitted on a timely basis, is not accepted or is accepted
but PharmAthene does not make progress consistent with the plan
during the plan period, the NYSE Amex could initiate delisting
proceedings. PharmAthene may appeal any delisting determination
before a listings qualifications panel of the NYSE Amex and in
turn request a review of the decision of such panel by the
exchange's Committee on Securities.

PharmAthene intends to prepare and submit its compliance plan to
the NYSE Amex.  PharmAthene expects that its common stock will
continue to trade without interruption on the NYSE Amex; however,
the trading symbol for PharmAthene's common stock will have an
indicator (.BC) as an extension to signify noncompliance with the
continued listing standards, until PharmAthene has regained
compliance.

Eric Richman, PharmAthene's interim Chief Executive Officer,
noted, "The NYSE Amex has not commenced any delisting proceedings
against us and we are fully confident that our plan for continuing
compliance will be adequate and that we will regain compliance
with the affected listing requirements in the future."

PENN NATIONAL: Bank Debt Trades at 2% Off in Secondary Market

RANGE RESOURCES: Moody's Rates New Senior Notes at 'Ba3'
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service rated Range Resources, Inc.'s new senior
subordinated notes Ba3 (LGD 5,72%).  Moody's also affirmed Range's
Ba2 Corporate Family Rating, the Ba2 Probability of Default
Rating, and the Ba3, LGD 5 (the point estimate is changing to 72%)
rating on the existing senior subordinated notes.  The outlook is
stable.

Proceeds from the new notes will be used to fund the redemption of
the company's $200 million notes due 2013.  Those notes are within
the call period, and Range has announced that it is calling them.
The balance of the proceeds will be used to repay borrowings under
the company's senior secured credit facility, which at 6/30/10,
had $475 million outstanding.

"The affirmation of the Ba2 rating reflects Range's solid track
record of reserves and production growth while maintaining a
competitive cost structure that compares favorably to its peers,"
said Ken Austin, Moody's Vice President.  "However, this is offset
by an aggressive spending program that could result in near-term
leverage increasing from current levels unless Range raises
additional, non-debt capital."

With proved developed reserves of 287.8 mmboe (1.7 tcfe) as of
12/31/09 and production averaging 78.6 mboe/day (471.8 mmcfe/day)
for the quarter ended 6/30/10.  This scale compares favorably to
many similarly rated peers and is reflective of Range's strong
track record of consistently building up its reserves and
production.  Furthermore, this growth has been achieved while
maintaining a leverage profile (to date) and a cost structure that
compares favorably with similarly rated E&P companies.

However, Range is embarking on an aggressive capital spending
program as it looks to ramp up its Marcellus drilling and
development.  The company recently announced that it is expanding
its capital spending by $215 million for the balance of 2010,
bringing its total spending to $1.2 billion for the entire year.
Prior to this increased spending budget, Moody's estimated that
Range was already expected to outspend cashflow, and this expanded
budget will widen the funding gap and push leverage higher,
especially if natural gas prices remain weak through the end of
the year.

Range's debt to proven developed reserves was $6.71/boe
($1.11/mcfe) based on debt at 6/30/10 and 12/31/09 reported
reserves.  While the company's debt to PD reserves is in-line with
the peer group, it has increased since the beginning of the year
and could move higher.  In addition, Range's debt/average daily
production at 6/30/10 was approximately $24,281/boe ($4,046/mcfe),
which is higher than average for the Ba2 rated peer group.  Given
the pace of spending, this metric could increase by year-end even
if the company meets its production targets.

The stable outlook can accommodate the increase in leverage given
the company's still growing scale and its track record of keeping
leverage in-line with the rating through equity issuance and asset
sales.  Although the company has indicated that it could pursue
asset sales, at this point, the timing and amount are uncertain
given the volatility of the equity and asset markets.  This
potential for higher leverage is currently restraining any
positive rating momentum.

To consider a positive outlook, Range would need to raise
sufficient equity or execute asset sales to cover its cash
shortfall for 2010.  A positive outlook would also be considered
if Moody's has clear visibility that Range's 2011 capital spending
budget will not result in any additional debt and leverage.  A
positive outlook would also anticipate Range continuing to grow
its reserves and production while keeping its debt/PD metric
around $6.00/boe ($1.00/mcfe) and debt to average daily production
trends towards $20,000/boe ($3,333/mcfe).

A negative outlook would be considered if the company's capital
productivity stalls, which would be signaled by production and
reserves growth not being achieved as expected, or if the
company's leverage or cost structure starts to rise significantly.

The last rating action for Range was on May 11, 2009, when Moody's
assigned a Ba2 rating to its notes offering and affirmed all
existing ratings.

Range Resources, Inc. is headquartered in Fort Worth Texas.


RANGE RESOURCES: S&P Assigns 'BB' Rating on $350 Mil. Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB' issue-level
rating, the same as the corporate credit rating, to Range
Resources Corp.'s (BB/Stable/--) $350 million senior subordinated
notes due 2020.  The recovery rating on this debt is '4',
indicating that lenders can expect average (30% to 50%) recovery
in the event of default.

The exploration and production company will use the proceeds to
refinance its $200 million of notes due 2013 and use the rest to
repay borrowings under its $1.25 billion revolving facility, which
had $475 million outstanding as of June 30, 2010.

RGIS HOLDINGS: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'B'
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it raised its corporate
credit rating on the Auburn Hills, Mich.-based RGIS Holdings LLC
to 'B' from 'B-'.  The outlook is stable.

S&P also raised the rating on the company's senior secured credit
facility, consisting of a $525 million term loan and a $75 million
revolving credit facility, to 'B' from 'B-' and maintained the 3'
recovery rating on the debt, indicating S&P's expectation for
meaningful (50%-70%) recovery of principal in the event of
default.

"The rating on RGIS reflects its highly leveraged financial risk,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Charles Pinson-Rose, "and
S&P's belief that the company will have marginal sales growth
opportunities given its expectation of limited inventory expansion
among retailers."


RITE AID: Bank Debt Trades at 12% Off in Secondary Market
---------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Rite Aid
Corporation is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 87.55
cents-on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, July 30, 2010,
an increase of 1.40 percentage points from the previous week,
according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and reported in
The Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 175 basis points above
LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan matures on
May 25, 2014, and carries Moody's B3 rating and Standard & Poor's
B+ rating.  The loan is one of the biggest gainers and losers
among 193 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more bids in
secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

Headquartered in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, Rite Aid Corporation
(NYSE: RAD) -- http://www.riteaid.com/-- is the largest drugstore
chain on the East Coast and the third largest drugstore chain in
the U.S.  The Company operates more than 4,900 stores in 31 states
and the District of Columbia.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 21, 2009,
Moody's affirmed Rite Aid's 'Caa2' corporate family and
probability of default ratings.  Standard & Poor's also affirmed
the 'B-' corporate credit rating, and the outlook is stable.


ROCKWOOD SPECIALTIES: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'BB-'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it raised its ratings
on Rockwood Specialties Group Inc., including its corporate credit
rating to 'BB-' from 'B+'.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P raised its rating on Rockwood's senior
secured debt, consisting of a revolving credit facility and term
loans, to 'BB+' from 'BB-'.  The 'BB+' rating is two notches above
the corporate credit rating.  S&P also revised the recovery rating
on the senior secured debt to '1', indicating S&P's expectation
for very high recovery (90%-100%) in the event of a payment
default, from '2'.  In addition, S&P raised the rating on the
company's subordinated notes to 'B' (two notches below the
corporate credit rating) from 'B-'.  The '6' recovery rating on
the subordinated notes, indicating negligible recovery (0%-10%) in
the event of a payment default, remains unchanged.

"S&P's rating action reflects improvements to the company's
leverage-related credit metrics, due to higher earnings and cash
flow in 2010, and lower debt levels relative to a year ago," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Paul Kurias.

Our expectation is that improved demand trends and the continuing
benefits from a cost reduction program are sustainable and will
contribute to a further gradual strengthening of credit measures
over the next year and beyond.  Rockwood has reported higher sales
volumes as demand in the company's cyclical end markets has
improved, following sharp deteriorations in 2009.  As a result,
the company's quarterly revenues for second quarter 2010 increased
20% relative to second quarter 2009.  Operating margins (before
depreciation and amortization) in 2010 have reverted to historical
levels of approximately 20%, an improvement over the 18% achieved
through most of 2009.  These improvements, combined with a
meaningful paydown of debt, have lifted the ratio of funds from
operations to total debt to about 16% as of March 31, 2010, from
trough levels of 9% in 2009.  The ratio as of March 31, 2010, is
pro forma for a July 29, 2010, $200 million debt repayment of
senior secured debt.  This debt paydown follows approximately
$300 million of debt reduction in 2009.

The ratings on Princeton, N.J.-based Rockwood reflect the
company's aggressive financial profile and a satisfactory business
risk profile.  Leverage has improved and is at levels appropriate
for the rating.  The ratio of FFO to total debt is within the 12%
to 20% band that S&P expects at the current rating.  S&P expects
that the company will at least maintain its leverage-related
credit metrics at current levels, though it is also likely that
modest improvements could occur over the next several quarters,
even after accounting for modest debt-funded acquisitions and
working capital increases.  S&P believes management will continue
to be prudent in its capital spending plans and in any potential
acquisitions or shareholder rewards, thereby maintaining a
financial policy that supports the current ratings.


RUBICON US REIT: Parkway Purchases Secured Note for $35 Million
---------------------------------------------------------------
Parkway Properties, Inc. disclosed the purchase of a first
mortgage note secured by three properties owned by RubiconPark I,
LLC from Special Servicer JE Robert for $35.0 million.  Rubicon US
REIT owns an 80% interest in RubiconPark I, LLC, and Parkway
Properties, LP owns the remaining 20% interest.  The loan has a
$2.0 million rollover reserve which was credited to Parkway at
closing, for a net purchase price of $33.0 million.  The loan was
originated by Bear Stearns Commercial Mortgage, Inc., and had a
principal balance of $51.0 million at July 30, 2010. The loan
matures on January 1, 2012, and bears interest at a stated rate of
4.9%.  The purchase of this loan was funded using Parkway's line
of credit.

The loan is secured by first mortgages on three properties,
including Falls Pointe, a 107,000 square foot office property in
Atlanta, Georgia; Lakewood II, a 128,000 square foot office
property also in Atlanta, Georgia; and Carmel Crossing, a three-
building, 326,000 square foot office complex in Charlotte, North
Carolina.  The properties were 76.1% occupied as of July 1, 2010.

Steven G. Rogers, President and Chief Executive Officer at
Parkway, stated "The purchase of this note represents an important
step in turning lemons into lemonade for Parkway's shareholders.
We were able to acquire the note at a 35% discount to the
outstanding principal balance, and with the low current occupancy,
an improving economy, and contractual rent increases, we believe
we have the potential to earn an attractive rate of return on a
fee simple basis similar to those we typically expect to achieve
through fund and fund-like structures.  We are considering
potentially involving a partner or converting the note to a fee
simple interest, then permanently capitalizing it."

In the event Parkway were to own the properties on a fee simple
basis, without further investment by Parkway, Parkway's implied
investment in the properties would be approximately $59 per square
foot and the expected going-in capitalization rate would be 6.1%
on the forward looking twelve months net operating income.  The
projected first year NOI is burdened by a total of $1.5 million of
contractual rent concessions related to two major customers in the
portfolio.  Excluding the effect of these rent concessions from
NOI implies an expected going-in cap rate of 10.7%.

Parkway previously purchased Falls Pointe in August 1996 for $9.1
million, Lakewood II in July 1997 for $11.5 million, and Carmel
Crossing in November 2003 for $41.0 million, representing a total
purchase price for the three properties of $61.6 million. In
December 2004, Parkway sold an 80% interest in the properties to
RUSR, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rubicon America Trust, at a
gross valuation of $66.7 million.  That sale created RubiconPark
I, LLC, in which Parkway still owns a 20% interest.  The venture
placed a $52.0 million non-recourse mortgage loan on the three
properties at a fixed interest rate of 4.9%, which is the note
that Parkway has acquired.

Parkway recorded a non-cash impairment loss totaling $5.6 million
during the fourth quarter of 2009 in connection with the joint
venture based on the net realizable value of the assets at that
time, which had been impaired due to the loss of two major
customers and significant changes in the real estate capital
markets. RUSR filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in
January 2010.  The RUSR Bondholders now expect to assume ownership
and operational control over RUSR's assets in August 2010, which
would designate them as an 80% owner of RubiconPark I, LLC,
however they will not own any interest in Parkway's purchase of
the note.

RYLAND GROUP: Posts $21.8 Million Net Loss for June 30 Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Ryland Group Inc. reported results for its second quarter
ended June 30, 2010.   For the second quarter ended June 30, 2010,
the Company reported a consolidated net loss of $21.8 million, or
$0.49 per diluted share, compared to a consolidated net loss of
$73.7 million, or $1.70 per diluted share, for the same period in
2009.  For the second quarter ended June 30, 2010, the Company had
pretax charges for inventory and other valuation adjustments and
write-offs that totaled $8.6 million, compared to pretax charges
that totaled $47.3 million for the same period in 2009.
Additionally, the Company had a net pretax charge that totaled
$19.1 million related to debt repurchases during the second
quarter ended June 30, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2010, showed
$1.733 billion in total assets and $1.115 billion in total
liabilities, for a stockholder's equity of $618.26 million.

The homebuilding segments reported pretax earnings of $4.2 million
during the second quarter of 2010, compared to a pretax loss of
$67.4 million for the same period in 2009.  This increase was
primarily due to lower inventory and other valuation adjustments
and write-offs; higher closing volume and gross profit margins;
and a reduced selling, general and administrative expense ratio,
partially offset by higher interest expense.

Homebuilding revenues rose 38.5 percent to $362.3 million for the
second quarter of 2010, compared to $261.6 million for the same
period in 2009.  This increase was primarily attributable to a
37.9 percent rise in closings that totaled 1,505 units for the
second quarter ended June 30, 2010, compared to 1,091 units for
the same period in the prior year.  For the quarter ended June 30,
2010, the average closing price of a home declined by 0.8 percent
to $238,000 from $240,000 for the same period in 2009.

Homebuilding revenues for the second quarter of 2010 included
$3.9 million from land sales, which resulted in net pretax
earnings of $124,000, compared to homebuilding revenues for the
second quarter of 2009 that included $95,000 from land sales,
which resulted in net pretax earnings of $22,000.

New orders of 958 units for the quarter ended June 30, 2010,
represented a decrease of 44.2 percent, compared to new orders of
1,716 units for the same period in 2009.  The Company had a
monthly sales absorption rate of 1.8 homes per community in the
second quarter ended June 30, 2010, versus 2.5 homes per community
for the same period in 2009.  For the second quarter of 2010, new
order dollars declined 43.0 percent to $230.8 million from
$404.5 million for the second quarter of 2009.  Backlog at the end
of the second quarter of 2010 declined 44.9 percent to 1,368 units
from 2,482 units at June 30, 2009.  At June 30, 2010, the dollar
value of the Company's backlog was $342.7 million, reflecting a
decrease of 43.6 percent from June 30, 2009.

Housing gross profit margins averaged 15.9 percent, excluding
inventory and other valuation adjustments, for the quarter ended
June 30, 2010, compared to 13.9 percent for the quarter ended
March 31, 2010, and 7.8 percent for the quarter ended June 30,
2009.  Including inventory and other valuation adjustments,
housing gross profit margins averaged 14.4 percent for the second
quarter of 2010, compared to negative 10.0 percent for the same
period in 2009.  The increase in average housing gross profit
margins for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010, compared to
the second quarter ended June 30, 2009, was primarily due to lower
inventory and other valuation adjustments and reduced sales
discounts and allowances that related to homes closed during the
quarter.

Sales incentives and price concessions averaged 11.0 percent for
the second quarter ended June 30, 2010, compared to 18.0 percent
for the same period in 2009.  Selling, general and administrative
expense totaled 10.4 percent of homebuilding revenues for the
second quarter of 2010, compared to 14.4 percent of homebuilding
revenues for the same period in 2009.  This decrease in the
selling, general and administrative expense ratio was primarily
attributable to increased revenues, cost-saving initiatives, and
lower marketing and advertising expenditures per unit.  The
homebuilding segments recorded $6.8 million of interest expense
during the second quarter of 2010, compared to $2.8 million of
interest expense in the second quarter of 2009.  This increase in
interest expense was primarily due to additional senior debt and
lower inventory-under-development resulting in a higher ratio of
debt to inventory-under-development.

Corporate expense was $8.0 million for the second quarter of 2010,
compared to $8.5 million for the same period in 2009.  This
decrease was primarily due to an expense of $2.0 million that
related to the retirement of the Company's former CEO in the
second quarter of 2009, as well as to lower executive compensation
costs, partially offset by a $703,000 loss in the market value of
retirement plan investments for the second quarter of 2010,
compared to a $2.3 million investment gain for the same period in
2009.

During the second quarter of 2010, the Company provided
$50.7 million of cash from operations.  It used $3.5 million of
cash for investing activities and provided $6.9 million of cash
from financing activities.

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2010, the financial services
segment reported a pretax loss of $634,000, compared to pretax
earnings of $1.1 million for the same period in 2009.  This
decrease was primarily attributable to higher loan indemnification
expense and a reduction in the number of customer loans-in-process
with locked interest rates at the end of the period, partially
offset by a 30.1 percent increase in mortgage originations.

             Results From First Six Months of 2010

For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the Company reported a
consolidated net loss of $36.1 million, or $0.82 per diluted
share, compared to a consolidated net loss of $149.0 million, or
$3.46 per diluted share, for the same period in 2009.  For the six
months ended June 30, 2010, the Company had pretax charges for
inventory and other valuation adjustments and write-offs that
totaled $13.3 million, compared to pretax charges that totaled
$96.8 million for the same period in 2009.  Additionally, the
Company had pretax charges that totaled $19.3 million related to
debt repurchases during the six months ended June 30, 2010.

The homebuilding segments reported a pretax loss of $5.2 million
during the first six months of 2010, compared to a pretax loss of
$141.8 million for the same period in 2009.  This reduction in
loss was primarily due to lower inventory and valuation
adjustments and write-offs; higher closing volume and gross profit
margins; and a reduced selling, general and administrative expense
ratio, partially offset by higher interest expense.

Homebuilding revenues rose 16.1 percent to $604.2 million for the
first six months of 2010, compared to $520.6 million for the same
period in 2009.  This increase was primarily attributable to a
16.3 percent rise in closings, partially offset by a lower average
sales price.  Closings totaled 2,489 units for the six months
ended June 30, 2010, compared to 2,140 units for the same period
in the prior year.  For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the
average closing price of a home declined by 0.8 percent to
$241,000 from $243,000 for the same period in 2009.  Homebuilding
revenues for the first six months of 2010 included $4.9 million
from land sales, which resulted in net pretax earnings of
$747,000, compared to homebuilding revenues for the first six
months of 2009 that included $413,000 from land sales, which
resulted in a net pretax loss of $205,000.

Housing gross profit margins averaged 15.1 percent, excluding
inventory and other valuation adjustments, for the six months
ended June 30, 2010, compared to 6.9 percent for the six months
ended June 30, 2009.  Including inventory and other valuation
adjustments, housing gross profit margins averaged 13.5 percent
for the first six months of 2010, compared to negative 11.5
percent for the same period in 2009.  The increase in average
housing gross profit margins for the six months ended June 30,
2010, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2009, was
primarily due to lower inventory and other valuation adjustments
and reduced sales discounts and allowances that related to homes
closed during the period.

Sales incentives and price concessions averaged 11.2 percent for
the six months ended June 30, 2010, compared to 18.0 percent for
the same period in the prior year.  Selling, general and
administrative expense totaled 11.6 percent of homebuilding
revenues for the first six months of 2010, compared to 15.0
percent of homebuilding revenues for the first six months of 2009.
This decrease in the selling, general and administrative expense
ratio was primarily attributable to increased revenues, cost-
saving initiatives, and lower marketing and advertising
expenditures per unit.  Selling, general and administrative
expense dollars for the six months ended June 30, 2010, decreased
$8.0 million from the same period in the prior year.  The
homebuilding segments recorded $13.6 million of interest expense
during the first six months of 2010, compared to $2.8 million of
interest expense during the first six months of 2009. This
increase in interest expense was primarily due to additional
senior debt and lower inventory-under-development resulting in a
higher ratio of debt to inventory-under-development.

Corporate expense was $14.3 million for the first six months of
2010, compared to $17.6 million for the same period in 2009.  This
decrease was primarily due to an expense of $2.0 million that
related to the retirement of the Company's former CEO in the
second quarter of 2009, as well as to lower executive compensation
costs, partially offset by a $537,000 loss in the market value of
retirement plan investments for the first six months of 2010,
compared to a $178,000 investment gain for the same period in
2009.

For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the financial services
segment reported a pretax loss of $162,000, compared to a pretax
loss of $467,000 for the same period in 2009.  This reduction in
loss was primarily attributable to a rise in mortgage originations
and title income, offset by higher loan indemnification expense
and a reduction in the number of customer loans-in-process with
locked interest rates at the end of the period.

agreement, dated as of July 8, 2010, with the San Diego County
Assessor.

The Settlement Agreement pertains to appeals by the Debtors of the
Assessor's assessments of an alleged possessory interest for the
Debtors' possession and use of land and improvements for the State
Road 125 toll road, also known as the South Bay Expressway,
pursuant to a lease entered into by the Debtors and the California
Department of Transportation dated November 16, 2007.

The Debtors appealed the assessments on grounds that the assessed
value of the Property should be reduced and that the Property is
exempt from ad valorem taxation.

The Settlement Agreement effectively bifurcates the Appeals by
settling the Valuation Dispute while preserving the Exemption
Dispute.

Under the Settlement Agreement, the Debtors and the Assessor have
agreed that:

  (a) the Debtors' business personal property will be assessed
      at $8,087,567 for 2008, obligating the Debtors to pay
      $106,292 in 2008 business personal property taxes, of
      which $94,209 is outstanding; and

  (b) the assessed values of the Property will be reduced for
      all periods through and including June 30, 2010, while
      reserving the Debtors' rights to seek a lower valuation of
      the Property for 2010 and permitting the Debtors to pursue
      the Exemption Dispute.

If the Exemption Dispute is resolved in favor of the Debtors, the
Debtors will not be liable for property taxes on the basis of the
Settled Assessed Values and will receive a refund of the taxes
they have paid on the Property.  If the Debtors do not prevail in
the Exemption Dispute, they would be liable for property taxes
based upon the Settled Assessed Values of the Property.

Accordingly, the Settlement Agreement places a cap on the Debtors'
tax liability and ensures that the Debtors will receive a refund
of at least some portion of the disputed property taxes, without
compromising the Debtors' ability to pursue full exemption.

These tables set forth the Debtors' tax liability, tax savings and
tax refunds under the Settlement Agreement, based on the outcome
of the Exemption Dispute:

  Totals                  0    $17,474,039    $13,978,773

The Settlement Agreement requires the approval and authorization
of the Court and the San Diego County Assessment Appeals Board.

R. Alexander Pilmer, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in Los
Angeles, California, avers that by entering into the Settlement
Agreement and paying the Personal Property Taxes, the Debtors will
(i) be able to minimize interest expenses on the Personal Property
Taxes, (ii) be able to save at least $8.6 million in taxes on the
Property, and (iii) be assured of a tax refund of at least
$5.1 million.

Mr. Pilmer also asserts that no difficulty related to collections
will arise as a result of the Settlement Agreement because it caps
the Debtors' tax liability and ensures that they will be refunded
at least a portion of the property taxes they have already paid,
even if they do not prevail in the Exemption Dispute.  He notes
that the Debtors have ample liquidity to satisfy the Personal
Property Taxes, even without the tax refund.

In his declaration in support for the approval of the Settlement
Agreement, Anthony G. Evans, chief financial officer for South Bay
Expressway, L.P., says that the Settlement Agreement in no way
settles, releases, compromises or otherwise impairs South Bay's
ability to seek a lower valuation of the Property for 2010 or to
pursue the Exemption Dispute in the Court or in any other
appropriate venue.

SOUTH BAY: Wins Nod to Employ PwC as Tax Advisor
------------------------------------------------
South Bay Expressway, L.P., and California Transportation
Ventures, Inc., submitted an amended application for authority to
employ PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as their tax advisor and
auditor, pro tunc to the Petition Date, and in accordance with the
terms and conditions set forth in the parties' two amended
engagement letters:

(1) the tax services engagement letter dated as of June 30,
     2009; and

(2) the audit engagement letter dated as of June 28, 2010.

To recall, Judge Adler did not approve the Debtors' original
application to employ PwC for reasons set forth in the U.S.
Trustee's objection.  The U.S. Trustee argued, among other things,
that PwC should provide additional disclosure regarding its
present relationship with Macquarie 125 Holdings, Inc., the
Debtors' parent.

Anthony G. Evans, the Debtors' chief financial officer, says that
PwC's agreement to perform the services described in the Amended
Engagement Letters is contingent upon the Court's approval of each
term and condition of the Amended Engagement Letters.  He adds
that the Amended Engagement Letters supersede the engagement
letters previously submitted to the Court in connection with the
original application.

To the extent not already addressed in the Supplemental
Declaration, the Amended Engagement Letters and the Amended
Application demonstrate that PwC has responded to each of the
objections raised in the U.S. Trustee's statement and in the
Court's previous order, Mr. Evans asserts.

Specifically, PwC has agreed to keep time records in tenths-of-an-
hour increments and has agreed to, notwithstanding any provisions
to the contrary in the Amended Engagement Letters, forgo rights to
indemnification, contribution, exculpation and limitation of
liability at the outset of PwC's retention by the Debtors, without
prejudice to PwC's rights to seek indemnification on a case by
case basis in the event that a claim is asserted against PwC in
respect of the services provided to the Debtors.

In addition, Mr. Evans notes, the Amended Engagement Letters
provide estimates, to the extent possible, of hourly fees in
connection with services provided by PwC Retention Advisors,
provide additional detail regarding the potential use of temporary
and contractual staffing services, and clarifies that, for all
services rendered in connection with the Amended Engagement
Letters, PwC will seek compensation in accordance with the
procedures approved by the Court.

Furthermore, the Declaration of Steve Embry of PwC clarifies that
PwC agrees to modify the order to reflect that PwC will not seek
reimbursement of attorneys' fees from the Debtors during the
Debtors' Chapter 11 cases.  Moreover, the order clarifies that PwC
has agreed that the Court retains jurisdiction to hear and
determine all matters arising from or related to the order while
the cases are pending, and provides that the Court does not
approve any dispute resolution provisions in the Amended
Engagement Letters, thereby addressing the U.S. Trustee's
objection to arbitration and dispute resolution provisions in the
Initial Engagement Letters.

The Debtors also seek to clarify that retention of PwC is sought
pursuant to Sections 327(a) and 328(a) of the Bankruptcy Code,
without prejudice to the rights of the Court, the U.S. Trustee,
and all parties-in-interest to review fees pursuant to Section 330
of the Bankruptcy Code.  Specifically, the Debtors seek retention
of PwC pursuant to Section 327(a) with respect to the services to
be performed on an hourly basis and seek retention of PwC pursuant
to Section 328(a) with respect to the services to be provided on a
fixed-fee basis.

                         *     *     *

The Court approved the Amended Application.

Judge Adler ruled that for services provided on an hourly basis,
PwC will submit time records, which will set forth a description
of the services rendered by each professional and the amount of
time spent on each date, in tenths-of-an-hour increments.  For the
fixed fee services provided under the Amended Engagement Letters,
PwC will include summary hourly increments of the approximate time
spent by professionals on various tasks as an exhibit to each
interim fee application in lieu of contemporaneous time records in
tenths-of-an-hour increments.

For all services provided under the Amended Engagement Letters,
PwC will file monthly, interim and final fee applications for the
allowance of compensation and reimbursement of expenses incurred
in accordance with applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code,
the Bankruptcy Rules, the Local Bankruptcy Rules and applicable
Court orders.

Notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary in the Amended
Engagement Letters, indemnification, contribution, exculpation and
limitation of liability clauses will not be permitted at the
outset of PwC's retention by the Debtors, without prejudice to
PwC's rights to seek indemnification on a case by case basis in
the event that a claim is asserted against PwC in respect of its
services to the Debtors, Judge Adler maintained.  She added that
notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary in the Amended
Engagement Letters, PwC will not seek reimbursement from the
Debtors of attorney's fees incurred in connection with the
services.

STORM KING: Files for Chapter 11 in Poughkeepsie
------------------------------------------------
Storm King Golf Club Inc. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on
July 28 in Poughkeepsie, New York (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No.
10-37256).

Storm King is a member-owned golf course in Cornwall, New York.
The 6,300-yard course claims to be one of the 100 oldest in the
U.S.  The petition listed assets of $10,000,000 to $50,000,000 and
debts of $1,000,000 to $10,000,000.

According to Bloomberg News, the Debtor said in a court filing
that the "general state of the economy" caused a drop in
membership.  There is a $1.62 million mortgage on the course,
which the club values at $12 million. Monthly revenue in the
season is about $14,000.


SUNQUEST INFORMATION: S&P Raises Ratings on Term Loan to 'BB'
-------------------------------------------------------------
S&P has upgraded the term loan ratings by Sunquest Information
Systems Inc. to 'BB' and changes recovery rating to '1'.


SUPERIOR PLUS: S&P Assigns 'BB' Long-Term Corp. Credit Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it assigned its 'BB' long-
term corporate credit rating to Superior Plus Corp., as well as
lowered its long-term corporate credit rating on subsidiary
Superior Plus LP to 'BB' from 'BB+' (collectively, Superior Plus).
The outlook on both companies is stable.

At the same time, S&P is revised the recovery rating on Superior
Plus' secured debt to '1' from '2'.  The issue-level rating is
unchanged at 'BBB-'.  The higher recovery rating reflects lower
secured debt outstanding at default due to a recent reduction in
the company's secured credit facility to C$450 million from
C$600 million.  S&P also revised the recovery rating on the
company's unsecured debt to '5' from '6'.  The issue-level rating
on the unsecured debt is unchanged at 'BB-'.  The revision to the
recovery rating reflects S&P's understanding that convertible debt
at the corporate level is subordinated to the unsecured debt at
the LP level.

"The downgrade on Superior Plus reflects S&P's opinion that EBITDA
generation has been lower than expected and S&P's expectations
that leverage will remain high in the near term," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Jatinder Mall.

The ratings on Superior Plus LP reflect what Standard & Poor's
views as the company's dominant market position in the Canadian
propane distribution business and second-largest position in the
global sodium chlorate business, its strong product
diversification, and ability to generate stable cash flows.
Somewhat offsetting these factors in S&P's opinion are Superior
Plus' high leverage capital structure and weak business risk
profile for its construction distribution business.

Superior Plus owns and operates three distinct business divisions:
Energy Services (45% of EBITDA), which includes the largest
propane distributor in Canada; ERCO Worldwide (44% of EBITDA), a
specialty chemicals producer of sodium chlorate and chloralkali
products; and Construction Products Distribution  (11% of EBITDA),
a North American construction products distributor.

Standard & Poor's deems the company's business risk profile as
fair.  Superior Plus has a dominant market position in the highly
fragmented Canadian propane distribution business, with an
estimated 40% share of the market.  Standard & Poor's considers
the company's financial risk profile as aggressive.  Superior
Plus' adjusted debt has increased in the past year due to funding
the expansion of the Port Edwards facility, recent acquisitions,
and higher operating lease adjustments

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectations that Superior Plus'
credit metrics, while currently high, will improve gradually in
the next couple of years and adjusted leverage will decline to 4x
by the end of 2011.  An upgrade would likely require improved and
sustained adjusted leverage to about 3.0x-3.5x.  Standard & Poor's
could lower the ratings if additional cash flows from recent
acquisitions do not materialize and are below 50% of their
historical averages leading to leverage of about 4.5x at the end
of 2011.


TENNECO INC: Moody's Assigns 'B2' Rating on $225 Mil. Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B2 rating to Tenneco Inc.'s
proposed $225 million of senior unsecured noted due 2018.  In a
related action Moody's affirmed the B2 Corporate Family and
Probability of Default Ratings of Tenneco, and affirmed the
ratings on the company's existing debt: senior secured credit
facilities at Ba2; senior unsecured at B2; and senior subordinated
notes at Caa1.  The rating outlook is stable.

Net proceeds from the issuance of the new senior unsecured notes
will be used, along with cash on hand, to repay the senior secured
second-lien notes.  The rating on the senior secured second-lien
notes will be withdrawn upon their repayment.

Tenneco's Corporate Family Rating was raised to B2 on May 25, 2010
recognizing the company's expected improvement in operation
performance.  The Corporate Family Rating and stable outlook
continue reflect Moody's expectation that Tenneco's credit metrics
will support the assigned rating over the intermediate-term and
incorporates the seasonal nature of the company's operations.
Moody's anticipates that the trajectory of Tenneco operating
performance trends in the second half of 2010 may be tempered by
softness in European production,and softening trends in domestic
consumer confidence and economic recovery trends.  Yet, Moody's
continue to expect the company's emission control segment to
benefit from higher levels of commercial vehicle program launches
over the intermediate-term.

This rating was assigned:

* B2 (LGD3, 49%) to the new $225 million senior unsecured notes,
  maturing in 2018;

These ratings were affirmed:

* B2, Corporate Family rating;

* B2, Probability of Default rating;

* Ba2 (LGD2, 12%) for the $622 million first lien senior secured
  revolving credit facility;

* Ba2 (LGD2, 12%) for the $130 million first lien senior secured
  letter of credit / revolving loan facility;

* Ba3 (LGD2, 29%) for the 10.25% guaranteed senior secured second-
  lien notes due 2013, (to be withdrawn upon their refinancing);

* B2 (LGD3, 49%) for the 8.125% guaranteed senior unsecured notes
  due 2015;

* Caa1 (LGD5, 86%) for the 8.625% guaranteed senior subordinated
  notes due November 2014

The last rating action for Tenneco was on May 25, 2010, when the
company's Corporate Family Rating was raised to B2.

Tenneco, headquartered in Lake Forest, Illinois, is a leading
manufacturer of automotive emissions control (approximately 63% of
sales) and ride control (approximately 37% of sales) products and
systems for both the worldwide original equipment market and
aftermarket.  Leading brands include Monroe(R), Rancho(R),
Clevite(R), and Fric Rot ride control products and Walker(R),
Fonos, and Gillet emission control products.  Net sales in 2009
were approximately $4.6 billion.


TENNECO INC: S&P Assigns 'B' Rating on $225 Mil. Senior Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it has assigned a 'B'
rating to Tenneco Inc.'s proposed $225 million senior unsecured
notes due 2018.  At the same time, S&P assigned its recovery
rating of '4' to the proposed facilities, indicating its
expectation that lenders would receive average (30% to 50%)
recovery in the event of a default.

Proceeds of this offering will be used to call the outstanding
balance of Tenneco's $245 million, 10.25% senior secured notes on
Sept. 3, 2010, at 101.708% of the principal amount.  S&P will
withdraw its rating on this issue at that time.

The proposed notes will be general senior obligations of Tenneco
and the guarantors, ranking equal in right of payment with other
unsubordinated debt and senior in right of payment to subordinated
debt.  The proposed notes will not be secured by any assets of
Tenneco.

The 'B' corporate credit rating on Lake Forest, Ill.-based Tenneco
reflects the company's high leverage and substantial exposure to
the highly cyclical light-vehicle and commercial-vehicle markets.

TEXAS RANGERS: Yankee's A-Rod Balks at Plan Over Deferred Money
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bailey Stephens at MLB.com, citing report from The Associated
Press, New York Yankee's third baseman Alex Rodriguez objected to
Texas Ranger's plan over concerns about $24.9 million he is owed
in deferred money for his time with the team.  Mr. Rodriquez filed
the objection out of an abundance of caution due to potential
uncertainties in the Plan, a person familiar with the matter
relates.

MLB.com notes that, other than Mr. Rodriquez, Ranger's third
baseman Michael Young is also owed $4 million in deferred money;
$12.9 million, Kevin Millwood; $1.7 million, Vicente Padilla;
$1.4 million, Mickey Tettleton; and $970,051, Mark McLemore.

A hearing to consider confirmation of Texas Rangers' plan is
scheduled for August 4.

                         Emergency Hearing

Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News reports that the Texas Rangers
baseball club filed on July 29 a request for a hearing the next
day on a motion that it is filing under seal.  The request for
authority to file the papers secretly said the motion would ask
the bankruptcy judge to modify unspecified prior orders and allow
the team to "effectuate a settlement of certain disputes in
this case."  The only court filing made public says that the
settlement would provide "substantial value to the debtor's
estate."

                    August 4 Auction for Assets

A group led by current team President Nolan Ryan and sports lawyer
Chuck Greenberg is under contract to purchase the club for about
$306.7 million cash.

Under court-approved sale procedures, the Debtor will hold an
auction on Aug. 4, if competing bids are submitted by Aug. 3.
Various parties have conveyed interest to buy the team.  Bidders
are required to seek approval from the Major League
Baseball to buy the team in order to participate in the auciton.

If the Ryan-Greenberg group is outbid, it would receive a
$15 million breakup fee.  In return for the fee, the stalking-
horse bidder agreed to waive exclusivity provisions in the May
contract.

                        About Texas Rangers

Texas Rangers Baseball Partners owns and operates the Texas
Rangers Major League Baseball Club, a professional baseball club
in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.  TRBP is a Texas general

Stars National Hockey League franchise.  The Texas Rangers have
had five owners since the club moved to Arlington in 1972.  Mr.
Hicks became the fifth owner in the history of the Texas Rangers
on June 16, 1998.

In its petition, Texas Rangers Baseball Partners said it had both
assets and debt of less than $500 million.

Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP serves as bankruptcy counsel to the
Debtor.  Forshey & Prostok LLP serves as conflicts counsel.

Holdings GP, LLC -- into bankruptcy court protection (Bankr. N.D.
Tex. Case No. 10-43624 and 10-43625).   The lenders, a group that
includes investment funds Monarch Alternative Capital and
Kingsland Capital Management, filed an involuntary bankruptcy
petition on May 28 against the two companies.  The two companies
were not included in the May 24 Chapter 11 filing of TRBP.

TRIBUNE CO: Examiner Asks Court to Resolve Confidentiality Issues
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Kenneth Klee, the Chapter 11 Examiner in the Debtors' cases, asks
the Court to resolve confidentiality issues at the omnibus hearing
scheduled for August 9, 2010, so that most, if not all, of his
report and its accompanying exhibits may be made publicly
available as soon as possible.

The Court entered, on December 12, 2009, an order (i) authorizing
the Debtors to establish a document depository and directing the
Committee to deliver certain documents to the depository pursuant
to Rule 2004 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure; and
(ii) authorizing the Debtors to establish and maintain a Document
Depository to store the documents and information provided to the
Committee or other parties, and to provide the negotiating parties
with access to Document Depository, subject to the preservation of
any claims of confidentiality.

The Examiner tells the Court that he and his professionals were
granted access to the documents in the Document Depository, and
used those documents in connection with the Investigation and the
preparation of the Report.  In addition to the documents in the
Document Depository, Mr. Klee also obtained documents and
information directly from certain parties, which, in many cases,
were produced subject to claims of confidentiality.

Mr. Klee asserts that because there is insufficient time for him
to present these issues for the Court for resolution before the
deadline for filing his report, he has determined he has no choice
but to file a redacted version of the report on July 26, 2010.

By this motion, Mr. Klee seeks the Court's authority to file under
seal his entire report and certain alleged confidential materials,
and if the Court so directs, all of the exhibits to the Report.

Mr. Klee also asks the Court to overrule the claims of
confidentiality and unseal the entire Report and the Exhibits or
direct him to publicly file those portions of the Report and the
Exhibits that the Court deems appropriate.

As with the Report and its Exhibits, Mr. Klee says he strongly
believes that the transcripts should be made part of the public
record of his investigation to provide a reader of the Report with
the full transcribed record of the events and not only those
excerpts cited in the Report.

In a separate filing, Chicago Tribune Company filed a joinder to
Mr. Klee's motion asking the Court to overrule the claims of
confidentiality with respect to the Examiner's Report and all of
its exhibits, which are now filed under seal.

          Debtors Want Disclosure of Examiner's Report

The Debtors ask the Court to authorize the disclosure of the
Examiner's Report, exhibits to Report, and professionally
transcribed, sworn transcripts of witness interviews to the
parties and interviewees pursuant to the terms of the Document
Depository Order.

The Debtors assert that it is critical that the parties be
provided with the Report, the Exhibits, and the Transcripts at the
earliest possible opportunity once filed with the Court.
According to the Debtors, the parties need this information in
connection with their preparations for the hearing on Plan
confirmation, scheduled for August 30, 2010.

The Debtors believe that an order from the Court authorizing the
immediate disclosure of the Report, the Exhibits, and the
Transcripts to the parties pursuant to the terms of the Document
Depository Order will adequately protect the confidentiality
concerns raised.

                   U.S. Trustee, et al., Respond

The U.S. Trustee says it supports the full disclosure of the
Report and the Exhibit as soon as possible, and urges the Court to
either schedule an immediate hearing to determine the issues of
confidentiality raised by the parties or to adjourn the dates by
which creditors must vote on and object to the Debtors' Plan of
Reorganization.

The immediate disclosure of the Report and the Exhibits is
critical because of the condensed timeline related to
confirmation, the U.S. Trustee asserts.  The U.S. Trustee tells
the Court that it is concerned that if the Seal Motion is not
heard until August 9, 2010, then all creditors and other parties
will be prevented from reviewing the entire Report and Exhibits
prior to the voting deadline for the Plan.

The Credit Agreement Lenders led by Contrarian Funds LLC complain
that due to the Examiner's determination to file a truncated 30-
page summary of what has been described as a 1,000-page report,
creditors voting on the Debtors' Plan will not have access to the
Examiner's full report until after the current deadline for voting
on the Plan.  This, the Credit Agreement Lenders argue, nullifies
the primary purpose of the Examiner's report and dictates that the
voting deadline be extended to a reasonable time after the
entirety of the report is made public.

Merrill Lynch Capital Corporation and Merrill Lynch, Pierce,
Fenner & Smith, complain that their position has been inaccurately
stated in both the Debtors' and the Examiner's Response.  Merrill
reiterates that it does not object to the Debtors' Motion provided
that it is clear in any order granting the Debtors' Motion that
(a) transcripts to be made available to the Parties will include
the errata sheets showing all corrections made to the transcripts
and (b) the term "transcript" will be defined to include the
errata sheets.

                       Examiner Talks Back

The Examiner maintains that the entire Report, the Exhibits and
Transcripts should be made available to the public at large.  The
Examiner adds that any remaining claims of confidentiality with
respect to the Report, the Exhibits or the Transcripts are not
well founded.

As for Merrill Lynch's objection to sharing the Transcripts with
the Parties and making them available to the public, the Examiner
points out that the Court order approving the Examiner's work plan
makes clear that information provided to the Examiner can be used
in his Report and made public, subject only to resolution as to
claims of confidentiality, which should occur at the Seal Motion
Hearing.

The Examiner disagrees that the existence of Transcripts for some,
but not all, of his interviews operates to the detriment of any
party.  The Examiner also points out that he has not yet had the
opportunity to provide Interviewees with an opportunity to raise
any confidentiality concerns as to quotes or information in the
Report.

The Examiner thus asks the Court to approve the Debtors' Motion
and require the Interviewees, who have not previously been
provided with an opportunity to raise confidentiality concerns, to
raise those concerns, if any, in the context of responding to the
Seal Motion.

TRIBUNE CO: Examiner Wants to be Discharged From Duties
-------------------------------------------------------
Kenneth Klee, the Chapter 11 Examiner in the Debtors' bankruptcy
cases, asks the Court to discharge him from any commitments or
representations with respect to his duties as he has already
completed his duties as Examiner.

According to Mr. Klee, it is possible that he will receive
requests from third parties for all or portions of the
Investigative Record, Privileged Materials, or other Depository
Documents or Third party Documents that were obtained by him or
his professionals but not cited in the Report.  He maintains that
it is also possible that third parties will seek testimony from
him or his professionals.

Thus, Mr. Klee asks the Court to issue an order precluding any
third party from issuing or serving upon him or his professionals
any formal or informal discovery request relating to the Report,
the Investigation, the Investigative Record, or any other
documents that were obtained by him or his Professionals, but not
cited in the Report, including, but not limited to, any request
for production of documents, requests for admissions,
interrogatories, subpoenas duces tecum, trial subpoenas, requests
for testimony, or any other discovery of any kind related to the
Report, the Investigation or the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases.

To reduce and eliminate the possibility of third-party discovery
requests, Mr. Klee seeks the Court's authority to transfer the
Report and the non-confidential documents comprising the
Investigative Record to Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC.  Epiq
currently is serving as the Debtors' claims agent.

The Examiner further asks the Court to exculpate him and his
professionals in connection with the Investigation and the
Report to avoid wasteful and collateral litigation.

The Examiner asks the Court to set August 31, 2010, as the
deadline for the filing of final fee applications, with objections
to be served no later than September 21, 2010.  The
Examiner further requests that the Court schedule a hearing on
those final fee applications at a date and time convenient to the
Court, but in no event later than 45 calendar days from the date
those applications are filed.

The Examiner also seeks approval for the reimbursement of the
reasonable fees and actual expenses incurred in connection with:

   (i) disposing of the Investigative Record pursuant to the
       procedures contemplated therein;

  (ii) responding to any formal or informal discovery requests
       to the extent that those requests are served upon the
       Examiner or the Examiner's Professionals, notwithstanding
       the prohibitions established by the Court regarding that
       discovery;

(iii) the preparation and prosecution of interim and final fee
       applications; and

  (iv) other actions undertaken by the Examiner and his
       professionals at the request or direction of the Court.

TRIBUNE CO: Revises 2010 Management Incentive Plan
--------------------------------------------------
Tribune Co. and its units revised their 2010 Management Incentive
Plan to increase the required operating cash flow performance
level at each potential payout level, decrease payout percentages
for many participants at various performance levels, and utilize a
uniform payout-performance structure for all participants, as
opposed to the bifurcated structure in the Initial 2010 MIP.

The revisions of the 2010 MIP resolve the objections by the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors and Washington-Baltimore
Newspaper Guild, Local 32035 of the Newspaper Guild-Communications
Workers of America, AFL-CIO.

The Debtors seek to implement the Revised 2010 MIP to
approximately 640 management employees, with an aggregate payout
opportunity of approximately:

  (a) $16.5 million, representing a 50%-of-target payout to all
      participants, if the Debtors achieve "threshold"
      performance equal to $500 million of 2010 consolidated
      operating cash flow;

  (b) $33 million, representing a 100%-of-target payout to all
      participants, if the Debtors achieve "target" performance
      for 2010 equal to $550 million of consolidated OCF; and

  (c) $42.9 million, representing a 130%-of-target payout to
      all participants, if the Debtors achieve "maximum"
      performance for 2010 of $685 million of consolidated OCF.

According to the Debtors, the Committee and the Guild support the
Revised 2010 MIP.

In a brief supplemental analysis, Mercer (U.S.), Inc. states that
the compensation opportunities provided under the Revised 2010 MIP
continue to be within reasonable market ranges at all levels of
performance.  A redacted copy of the Supplemental Mercer Report is
available for free at:

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/Tribune_MercerReport710.pdf

A hearing will be held on August 9, 2010, to consider the request.

TRONOX INC: Balks at Metawise Offer to Buy Iron Oxide Tailing
-------------------------------------------------------------
As previously reported, Metawise Group, Inc., announced, through
a letter addressed to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, its intention to
purchase the contents of the 27-acre iron oxide tailings pond in
Tronox LLC's facility in Theodore, Alabama.

In response, the Debtors argue that the intention is an improper
attempt by Metawise to substitute its business judgment for that
of Tronox, Inc., and that the Court should deny Metawise's
intention.

The Site was operated as a synthetic rutile ore processing
facility prior to the Debtors' spinoff from Kerr-McGee
Corporation.

Richard M. Cieri, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York,
relates that the Debtors have received inquiries from three
parties, including Metawise, who are interested in purchasing the
iron oxide at the Site.  He reveals that Tronox currently is
discussing the proposals internally, with The Alabama Department
of Public Health and with the Environmental Protection Agency,
which is an interested party because the Debtors have proposed to
contribute the Site to the environmental response trusts to be
created pursuant to their proposed Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization.  He notes that the Debtors have not yet
determined which offer for the iron oxide is highest or otherwise
best.

Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that a debtor, after
notice and a hearing, may use, sell, or lease, other than in the
ordinary course of business, property of the estate.

Mr. Cieri contends that although Section 363 does not specify a
standard for determining when it is appropriate for a court to
authorize the use, sale or lease of property of the estate, the
Second Circuit has required that the use, sale or lease be based
upon the sound business judgment of the debtor.

Accordingly, it is the Debtors' business judgment, and not that
of Metawise, that should determine if, when and to whom the
Debtors sell the iron oxide at the Site, Mr. Cieri argues.

"As strong as Metawise's interest in the iron oxide at the Site
may be, it cannot force Tronox to sell such property to
Metawise," Mr. Cieri says.

TTR MATESSON: Wants Filing of Schedules Extended Until Aug. 16
--------------------------------------------------------------
TTR Matteson, LLC, has asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois to extend the deadline for the
filing of schedules of assets and liabilities and statement of
financial affairs until August 16, 2010.

The current deadline for the schedules and statement is August 2,
2010.  The Debtor says that it is in the process of gathering all
of the information necessary to complete its schedules and
statement.

Oak Brook, Illinois-based TTR Matteson, LLC, owns three commercial
properties.  The Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
protection on July 19, 2010 (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 10-31879).

TTR MATTESON: Inland Mortgage Wants Ch 11 Bankr. Case Dismissed
---------------------------------------------------------------
Secured creditor Inland Mortgage Capital Corporation has asked the
Hon. A. Benjamin Goldgar of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois to dismiss TTR Matteson, LLC's
Chapter 11 bankruptcy case or, in the alternative, grant IMCC
relief from the automatic stay.

On or about September 11, 2006, IMCC loaned the Debtor a principal
sum of $10,800,000 by executing and delivering an Installment
Note.  The Debtor and IMCC entered into Loan Modification
Agreement on June 20, 2007, increasing the amount of the Loan to
$11,760,000.00, and amending the Note to reflect the new principal
amount.  Pursuant to the Note, the maturity date for the Loan was
September 30, 2009.  The Debtor failed to make the required
payment of all principal and accrued and unpaid interest on the
Maturity Date  As of the Petition Date, IMCC was owed more than
$13,528,305.75 (plus attorneys' fees) by the Debtor.

On March 10, 2010, IMCC commenced a foreclosure action against,
inter alia, the Debtor, to foreclose the Mortgage by filing a
Summons and Verified Complaint for Foreclosure and Other Relief
(the Complaint) in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois (the
State Court).

In the Foreclosure Action, IMCC maintains that pursuant to the
terms of the Loan Documents, IMCC is entitled to recover the
entire unpaid principal balance, along with all accrued interest,
late fees, costs and expenses, and to obtain a judgment of
foreclosure and sale.

On June 15, 2010, the Debtor, along with defendants Tim Gallagher,
Marcella Gallagher, Tim Donohue and Ron March (the Answering
Defendants), served their Verified Answer to the Complaint (the
Answer).  Significantly, in the Answer, the Answering Defendants
admit the execution and delivery of the subject Loan Documents,
and that it failed to make the required payment to IMCC on the
Maturity Date.

On July 9, 2010, IMCC served a motion for the appointment of a
receiver over the Property.  A hearing on the motion was scheduled
for July 19, 2010.  On July 19, 2010, just before the State Court
was to appoint a receiver over the Property, the Debtor filed for
bankruptcy protection.

According to IMCC, the Debtor's bankruptcy case was filed in bad
faith and should be dismissed.  IMCC says that the Debtor's
"Chapter 11 case is dead on arrival.  The Debtor has no employees,
few unsecured creditors, and no possible means of reorganizing.
The Property is an industrial building and two adjacent vacant
industrial lots located in Matteson, Illinois.  The Debtor has no
equity in the Property, does not intend to infuse money into the
Property, and the Property does not generate anywhere close to the
cash flow required to pay taxes and service the current debt load.
The Property, which is fully encumbered by IMCC's first priority
lien, is currently the subject of a foreclosure proceeding, and a
receiver was to have been appointed on the very day the Debtor
filed its Chapter 11 petition."

IMCC states, "The Debtor seems intent on using the bankruptcy
process to attempt to leverage IMCC into a deeply discounted sale
of its interest in the Property or a piecemeal sale of the most
valuable portions of its collateral.  This Court should not
countenance the Debtor's efforts to use Chapter 11 solely to
frustrate IMCC's legitimate exercise of its contractual and legal
rights."

IMCC asks that alternatively, if the Court is not inclined to
dismiss the case at this time, it grant IMCC relief from the
automatic stay so that the Foreclosure Action and any disputes the
Debtor has with IMCC may be brought to a conclusion.  Relief from
stay will enable IMCC to protect the Property, its collateral, by
seeking the appointment of a receiver for the Property in the
State Court.

IMCC is represented by Inland Mortgage Capital Corporation.

TTR MATTESON: Taps Crane Heyman as Bankruptcy Counsel
-----------------------------------------------------
TTR Matteson, LLC, has asked for authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois to employ
the Law Firm of Crane, Heyman, Simon, Welch & Clar as bankruptcy
counsel.

CHSWC will:

     a. prepare applications, motions, answers, orders, adversary
        proceedings, reports and other legal papers;

     b. provide the Debtor with legal advice with respect to its
        rights and duties involving its property as well as its
        reorganization efforts herein;

     c. appear in court and to litigate whenever necessary; and

     d. perform any and all other legal services that may be
        required from time to time in the ordinary course of the
        Debtor's business during the administration of the
        Debtor's bankruptcy case.

Prior to the filing of the Debtor's Chapter 11 case, CHSWC was
paid $50,000 by the Debtor as an advance payment retainer for its
representation of the Debtor in the bankruptcy case and matters
relating thereto.

To the best of the Debtor's knowledge, CHSWC is "disinterested" as
that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

UAL CORP: Generated $1.9 Bil. Baggage Fees Revenue in 2009
----------------------------------------------------------
United Air Lines, Inc., recorded $1.9 billion in ancillary
revenues, ranked as the largest fee income of any carrier in the
world in 2009, Chicago Tribune reports citing a study by airline
consultancy firms Ideaworks and Amadeus.

The proliferation of checked bag fees in the U.S. and much of
Europe accounted for the startling jump in this source of airline
revenue, Jay Sorensen, president of Wisconsin-based IdeaWorks,
explained, Tribune notes.

Tribune also reports that only about 40% of United passengers pay
to check bags, generating $350 million to $450 million annually
for United.  However, United President John Tague said United's
annual baggage revenues could top $1 billion over time, as
carriers in regions like Asia adopt similar changes, the report
adds.

UAL CORP: PBGC Blamed for Discrepancies on Pension Audits
---------------------------------------------------------
An audit made by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation of four
United Air Lines, Inc. pensions taken over by the agency in 2005
"did not exercise due professional care in their work," Doug
Halonen of Pensions & Investments reports, citing a review by PBGC
Inspector General Rebecca Ann Batts.

Ms. Batts said in a July 20, 2010 letter to U.S. Representative
George Miller that the PBGC also did not "properly oversee the
work and failed to identify or follow-up on errors and omissions
in the work," Mr. Halonen notes.  Ms. Batts added in the July 20
letter that the issues surrounding the inadequate plan asset
audits were so significant that additional, more detailed
evaluation is warranted, Mr. Halonen relates.

In a separate letter sent to the PBGC Director Joshua Gotbaum, Mr.
Miller stated that the asset audits are crucial because they are
used to calculate the benefits of the participants in plans the
agency takes over, Mr. Halonen discloses.  "I urge you to work
with the Office of Inspector General to determine the scope and
severity of the problem and to properly hold accountable any
contractor or employee who failed to execute their duties in the
manner consistent with the requirements of the law," Mr. Miller
wrote in his letter, Mr. Halonen says.

When the PBGC took over the UAL plans, they were unfunded by
$9.8 billion and only $6.6 billion of that was guaranteed, Mr.
Halonen notes, citing an April 22, 2005 public statement of the
PBGC.

UAL CORP: Postpones Move to Willis Tower Due to Merger
------------------------------------------------------
United Air Lines, Inc., said it is delaying moving its operations
control to Willis Tower until early 2012 after determining that
combining its critical nerve center with that of Continental Air
Lines, Inc., would be more complex than it expected, Julie
Johnsson of Chicago Tribune relates.

United's decision comes as the carrier and United are shaping the
new management of the combined airline.

United previously planned to move 350 staffers at its operations
in Elk Grove Township to Willis Center this year, as part of the
2,500 workers it is shifting downtown with $35.9 million in
subsidies from the city, Ms. Johnsson notes.  Instead, the
operations staffers' moving day will be closer to the time when
United and Continental will obtain a single operating certificate
from the Federal Aviation Administration, she explains.

However, other United workers will begin to move from Elk Grove as
scheduled, Ms. Johnsson says, citing unnamed sources.  United is
also redesigning the area in Willis Center for flight dispatchers
and others who eventually will guide its aircraft around the
world, she adds.

US FOODSERVICE: Bank Debt Trades at 13% Off in Secondary Market
---------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which U.S. Foodservice,
Inc., is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 86.73 cents-
on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, July 30, 2010, an
increase of 1.20 percentage points from the previous week,
according to data compiled by Loan Pricing Corp. and reported in
The Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 275 basis points above
LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan matures on
July 3, 2014, and carries Moody's B2 rating while it is not rated
by Standard & Poor's.  The loan is one of the biggest gainers and
losers among 193 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more
bids in secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

VITERRA INC: Moody's Assigns 'Ba1' Corporate Family Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba1 rating to Viterra, Inc.'s
proposed rule 144A US$ notes.  Viterra's Ba1 Corporate Family
Rating and other ratings were affirmed.  Proceeds from the
proposed notes are to be used for debt reduction and for general
corporate purposes.  The outlook is stable.

The proposed notes are expected to rank pari passu with all of
Viterra's existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness
including its recent C$1.6 billion global unsecured guaranteed
revolving credit facility executed in May 2010.  Viterra's
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-2 indicating a good
liquidity profile over the next 12 months was also affirmed.

The proposed notes and the executed C$1.6 billion global revolving
credit facility follow the September 2009 acquisition of ABB Grain
Ltd. of Australia.  While the C$1.4 billion acquisition was
comprised of a prudent mix of 50% equity and 50% cash, the lack of
a global unsecured revolving credit facility had been a modest
credit concern.  Future draws under a recently rated shelf (filed
in Canada), if used to pay down short term debt, will likely
improve the overall credit and maturity profile of Viterra.
Specific benefits achieved through this proposed note issuance
include: an improved maturity schedule, decrease in interest rate,
and covenant consistency.  The unsecured structure of Viterra's
new credit facilities is a clear credit positive, as unsecured
revolvers/debt are typically commensurate with investment grade
ratings, while secured debt is unusual at the investment grade
level.

The Ba1 ratings reflect the growth aspirations of Viterra
management and incorporate an expectation of the financial impact
of future acquisition activity.  Prior to a positive rating move
Moody's would look for the agricultural market dynamics to remain
healthy and stable, for continued success by management at
integrating ABB and other recent and potential acquisitions, and
an expectation that investment grade credit metrics willbe
achieved and sustained over a multi-year period.  The generation
of free cash flow is a typical trait for investment grade issuers,
thus a free cash flow to debt ratio of over 8% on a sustainable
basis would be seen as a positive for the rating.

The stable outlook incorporates the assumption that future
acquisition activity of material size would be prudently financed.
The outlook also reflects Moody's desire to see Viterra perform
over a longer period of time with its relatively new consolidated
group of assets given the acquisition related growth strategy that
management has undertaken.  Viterra's annual revenues have grown
from C$1.5 billion at the end of 2006 to C$7.5 billion for the LTM
period ending April 30, 2010, and ABB could add C$2 billion in
revenues in 2010 to the C$6.6 billion 2009 Viterra stand-alone
revenues.  Total assets were estimated to approach C$6.1 billion
at the end of April 2010 up from C$774 million at the end of July
2006 an increase of over 680% over the last 45 months.

Issuer: Viterra Inc.

Affirmations

  -- Corporate Family Rating- Ba1

  -- Probability of Default Rating - Ba1

  -- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debentures rated Ba1, LGD4, 57%
     moved from LGD4, 58%

Assignments:

  -- Senior Unsecured Rule 144A notes rated Ba1, LGD4, 57%

Viterra's SGL-2 rating, reflecting a good liquidity profile, is
indicative of the company's significant cash generating
capabilities, balanced by the high seasonal demands on working
capital for its grain handling and agriproducts businesses (over
75% of Viterra's agriproducts are delivered from April through
June).  Ongoing liquidity concerns for grain processors center on
volatility of crop and farm input pricing.  For example, a
significant increase in the cost of commodity grains can increase
the working capital burden for Viterra and other processors, and
these price movements will increase the cash requirements in
managing the business.  Viterra's liquidity is supported by its
sizeable cash and marketable securities of approximately
C$480 million as of the second quarter filings ending April 30,
2010.  Additionally, Moody's estimate that Viterra had about
C$400 million drawn on the new C$1.6 billion global multi currency
credit facility at closing; the facility is used for managing the
seasonal swings in working capital.  Sustaining capital spending
for 2010 is estimated at C$140 million.  Viterra does not pay a
dividend on its common stock and the company further benefits from
having no near term maturities of its long-term debt.

Moody's most recent announcement concerning the ratings for
Viterra was on July 23rd, 2010, when Moody's affirmed the CFR and
assigned a Ba1 to the proposed senior notes shelf executed by the
issuer.

Viterra Inc., formerly known as Saskatchewan Wheat Pool Inc., is
headquartered in Regina, Saskatchewan, and is the largest grain
handler in Canada.  The Viterra entity was formed on May 29, 2007
after the acquisition of Agricore United by Saskatchewan Wheat
Pool.  Viterra operates through three business segments; Grain
Handling and Marketing, Agri-Products, and Processing, but derives
the majority of their income through the Grain Handling and
Marketing and Agri-Products business segment.  In September 2009
Viterra acquired ABB for A$1.6 billion (C$1.4 billion) with 50%
equity and 50% cash, adding global diversity, improved access to
Asia, and market share.  Revenues were C$7.5 billion for the 12
month period ending third-quarter April 30, 2010.

and, as a result, all of the Warrants are now immediately
exercisable for shares Common Stock.

WHITNEY HOLDING: S&P Cuts Counterparty Credit Rating to 'BB'
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it lowered its
counterparty credit rating on Whitney Holding Corp. to 'BB' from
'BB+'.  S&P also lowered the counterparty credit ratings on
banking subsidiary Whitney National Bank to 'BB+/B' from 'BBB-/A-
3'.

The outlooks are negative.

"The downgrade reflects S&P's view that Whitney's credit measures
could continue to deteriorate beyond its earlier expectations and
relative to peers'," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Daniel
E. Teclaw.  "Moreover, Whitney's earnings fundamentals are weaker
than peers' and could continue to be surpassed by credit costs
through 2010 and into 2011."

However, Whitney's capital is somewhat higher than many peers',
and S&P considers it adequate for the ratings.  S&P believes the
company should maintain higher capital than peers' because of the
especially weak economy in the U.S. Southeast, the bank's large
proportion of construction and commercial real estate (CRE) loans,
and its exposures to borrowers who could be affected by the recent
Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Positively, the company has built its loan-loss reserve to buffer
its capital.

S&P had originally expected the company to show some signs of
credit stabilization, similar to many other peers, in the quarter
ended June 30, 2010.  However, nonperforming assets and net
charge-offs rose sequentially.

Florida problem loans remain high, even though the bank has
conservatively written down its impaired loans.  The Texas CRE
portfolios is also now showing some weakness.

"Based on S&P's general economic outlook, S&P project commercial
construction activity to remain weak, at least through the rest of
2010," Mr. Teclaw added.  "S&P also expects to see further
weakness in the company's eastern Texas market, especially in
construction and development loans -- one-third of its
construction, land, and land development portfolio."

S&P expects further credit deterioration, given the company's
Southeastern footprint.


* Home Foreclosures Increasing in 74% of Metro Areas
----------------------------------------------------
Home foreclosures in the first six months of 2010 increased in 154
of 209 metropolitan areas with populations over 200,000, Bloomberg
News said, citing a July 29 report by RealtyTrac Inc.

RealtyTrac said the foreclosure rate declined in nine of the 10
areas with the highest rates, indicating that foreclosures are
spreading beyond the areas that were hard-hit first.  The states
with the highest foreclosure rates are Florida, California, Nevada
and Arizona.


* S&P's 2010 Defaults Total at 46 After American Safety Files
-------------------------------------------------------------
American Safety Razor Co., a U.S.-based consumer products company,
filed for Chapter 11 last week, raising the year-to-date 2010
global corporate default tally to 46, said an article published by
Standard & Poor's, titled "Global Corporate Default Update (July
23 - 29, 2010) (Premium)."

By region, the current year-to-date default tallies are 33 in the
U.S., two in Europe, five in the emerging markets, and six in the
other developed region (Australia, Canada, Japan, and New
Zealand).  So far this year, distressed exchanges account for 15
defaults, missed interest or principal payments are responsible
for 13, Chapter 11 filings account for 12, regulatory directives
and receiverships are responsible for one each, and the remaining
four defaulted issuers are confidential.

Of the global corporate defaulters in 2010, 41% of issues with
available recovery ratings had recovery ratings of '6' (indicating
our expectation for negligible recovery of 0% to 10%), 13% of the
issues had recovery ratings of '5' (modest recovery prospects of
10% to 30%), 8% had recovery ratings of '4' (average recovery
prospects of 30% to 50%), and 21% had recovery ratings of
'3' (meaningful recovery prospects of 50% to 70%).  And for the
remaining two rating categories, 15% of the issues had recovery
ratings of '2' (substantial recovery prospects of 70% to 90%) and
3% had recovery ratings of '1' (very high recovery prospects of
90% to 100%).

In S&P's view, a modest amount of maturing debt over the next four
quarters is one of the key factors that should keep default rates
low in the one-year forecast horizon, even though many
speculative-grade issuers could have a tough time refinancing if
financial conditions worsen materially.  Its baseline projection
for the U.S. corporate speculative-grade default rate in the 12
months ended in June 2011 is 2.8%, with alternative scenarios of
2.5% at the optimistic end and 4.5% at the pessimistic end.  S&Ps
pessimistic scenario is the same as the long-term (1981 to 2009)
average default rate.  S&P's forecasts are based on quantitative
and qualitative factors that we consider, including, but not
limited to, Standard & Poor's proprietary default model for the
U.S. corporate speculative-grade bond market.


* 5 Bank Closings Last Friday Bring Year's Total to 108
-------------------------------------------------------
Five U.S. banks were taken over by regulators on July 30, 2010,
bringing total bank failures for the year to 108.  Last Friday's
failures will cost the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. a combined
$334.7 million.

The five banks closed Friday were LibertyBank, Eugene, OR;
The Cowlitz Bank, Longview, WA; Coastal Community Bank, Panama
City, FL; Bayside Savings Bank, Port Saint Joe, FL; and NorthWest
Bank & Trust, Acworth, GA.

The FDIC was able to sign deals for the banks to take over the
deposits of the failed banks.  Centennial Bank, Conway, Arkansas,
has signed a deal to assume all the deposits and essentially all
the assets of Bayside Savings and Coastal Community.

In accordance with Federal law, allowed claims against failed
financial institutions will be paid, after administrative
expenses, in this order of priority:

    1. Depositors
    2. General Unsecured Creditors
    3. Subordinated Debt
    4. Stockholders

                   2010 Failed Banks List

The FDIC was appointed as receiver for the closed banks.  To
protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a purchase and
assumption agreement with various banks that agreed to assume the
deposits of most of the closed banks.  The FDIC also entered into
loss-share transactions on assets bought by the banks.

For this year, the failed banks are:

                              Loss-Share
                              Transaction Party     FDIC Cost
                 Assets of    Bank That Assumed   to Insurance

In 2009, there were 140 failed banks, compared with just 25 for
2008.

              775 Banks Now in FDIC's Problem List

The number of institutions on the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corp.'s "Problem List" rose to 775, up from 702 at the end of
2009. In addition, the total assets of "problem" institutions
increased during the quarter from $403 billion to $431 billion.
These levels are the highest since June 30, 1993, when the number
and assets of "problem" institutions totaled 793 and $467 billion,
respectively, but the increase in the number of problem banks was
the smallest in four quarters.

"Problem" institutions are those institutions with financial,
operational, or managerial weaknesses that threaten their
continued financial viability.  They are rated by the FDIC or
Office of the Thrift Supervision as either a "4" or "5", based on
a scale of 1 to 5 in ascending order of supervisory concern.
The Problem List is not divulged to the public.  No advance notice
is given to the public when a financial institution is closed.

The FDIC says that 41 institutions failed during the first
quarter.  Chairman Bair noted that the vast majority of "problem"
institutions do not fail.

According to the FDIC, its Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) balance
improved for the first time in two years.  The DIF balance -- the
net worth of the fund -- increased slightly to negative $20.7
billion, from negative $20.9 billion (unaudited) on December 31,
2009.  The fund balance reflects a $40.7 billion contingent loss
reserve that has been set aside to cover estimated losses.  Just
as banks reserve for loan losses, the FDIC has to set aside
reserves for anticipated closings.  Combining the fund balance
with this contingent loss reserve shows total DIF reserves of
$20 billion.  Total insured deposits increased by 1.3%
($70.0 billion) during the first quarter.

The FDIC's liquid resources - cash and marketable securities -
remained strong.  Liquid resources stood at $63 billion at the end
of the first quarter, a decline from $66 billion at year-end 2009.
To provide the funds needed to resolve failed institutions in 2010
and beyond without immediately reducing the industry's earnings
and capital, the FDIC Board approved a measure on November 12,
2009, that required most insured institutions to prepay
approximately three years' worth of deposit insurance premiums -
about $46 billion - at the end of 2009.

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.

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.

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.
