785 PARTNERS: Court Approves Miller Cicero as Appraiser
-------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
authorized 785 Partners LLC to employ Miller Cicero LLC as
appraiser.

The firm will prepare an appraisal of the Debtor's apartment
building located at 785 Eighth Avenue in New York, provide any
required testimony in connection with the appraisal, and review
and consult with the Debtor respecting any appraisals prepared by
First Manhattan's experts.

The firm will be paid $20,000, for the preparation of the
appraisal of the building, inclusive of all expenses.

The Debtor assured the Court that the firm is a "disinterested
person" within the meaning of Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy
Code.

                      About 785 Partners LLC

785 Partners LLC owns a 42-story building on 785 Eighth Avenue,
New York.  The developer intended to sell 122 condominium units,
but it failed to obtain the requisite condominium approvals from
the New York State Attorney General.

The Company obtained $84 million of secured financing in January
2007 from PB Capital Corporation, and TD Bank, N.A.  First
Manhattan later bought the secured claim and says the claim has
risen to $101 million, which is higher than the market value of
the property.

785 Partners LLC filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case
No. 11-13702) on Aug. 3, 2011.  Andrew K. Glenn, Esq., at
Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman LLP, in New York, serves as
counsel to the Debtor.  In its schedules, the Debtor disclosed
$106,000,000 in assets and $95,467,612 in liabilities, all
secured.


785 PARTNERS: Taps Weitzman Group as Financial Consultant
---------------------------------------------------------
785 Partners LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York for permission to employ Weitzman Group Inc.
as real estate and financial consultant.

The firm agrees to:

   a) analyze of the building's physical characteristics,
      environment and competitive position in the marketplace,

   b) analyze of the key economic and demographic variables that
      influence the demand for luxury rental and condominium
      housing,

   c) analyze of the Manhattan housing market including
      historical patterns and trends,

   d) analyze of the current investment climate for Manhattan
      residential real estate developments and available sources
      of funding through the debt and equity markets, and

   e) consult with the Debtor concerning a practical and
      achievable debt repayment plan -- respecting First
      Manhattan's claim -- to be included in the Plan, including
      appropriate interest rate terms and a repayment schedule.

The firm will be paid $42,000, plus expenses, for its services.

The Debtor assures the Court that the firm is a "disinterested
person" within the meaning of Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy
Code.

A&O LIFE: Melville Sells Insurance Portfolio for $4.84 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
Jaime L. Brockway at Insurance & Financial Advisor reports that
Melville Capital sold A&O Life Fund's remaining life insurance
portfolio for $4.84 million after the company filed for
bankruptcy.

According to the report, Melville Capital was retained as the life
settlement broker and advisor to Jeff Marwil, partner of law firm
Proskauer Rose, the trustee for A&O in connection with bankruptcy
proceedings.  The firm said it produced $3.42 million in this
latest sale and $4.84 million in total.

The report says A&O's principal business was acting as a buyer of
existing life insurance policies.  Each of the A&O Life Fund
entities filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Chicago
Sept. 2, 2009.  Documents filed in the bankruptcy court list more
than 700 individual investors as creditors, according to Melville
Capital.

Mr. Brockway notes Brent Oncale, former principal of A&O entities,
pleaded guilty Nov. 10, 2010, to a two-count criminal information
alleging conspiracy to commit mail fraud and conspiracy to commit
money laundering involving losses to investors of more than $50
million.  Mr. Oncale said he admitted to making material
misrepresentations and omissions to investors about A&O. He also
admitted that he and his co-conspirators failed to inform A&O
investors that the vast majority of investor money was used for
purposes unrelated to purchasing and maintaining portfolios of
life settlements.


ACADIA HEALTHCARE: Moody's Assigns 'B1' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned B1 Corporate Family and
Probability of Default Ratings to Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc.
Moody's also assigned a B3 (LGD 5, 77%) rating to the company's
proposed $150 million senior unsecured note offering. This is the
first time Moody's has assigned ratings to Acadia. Moody's
understands that the proceeds of the note offering will be used to
fund a portion of the merger of Acadia with PHC, Inc. (Pioneer
Behavioral Health or Pioneer). The rating outlook is stable.
Moody's also assigned a Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-
2.

The rating actions are subject to the conclusion of the
transaction as proposed and Moody's review of final documentation.

Following is a summary of ratings assigned.

Corporate Family Rating, B1

Probability of Default Rating, B1

$150 million senior unsecured notes due 2018, B3 (LGD 5, 77%)

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, SGL-2

RATINGS RATIONALE

Acadia's B1 Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's expectation
of continued EBITDA growth and stable cash flow generation as the
company further integrates facilities added in the April 2011
acquisition of Youth and Family Centered Services (YFCS) and the
Pioneer facilities to be acquired in the current transaction.
While Moody's acknowledges that expected pro forma debt to EBITDA
of approximately 5.3 times is considerable, Moody's anticipates
that successful integration will result in continued improvement
in leverage, interest coverage and cash flow coverage of debt
metrics. However, the rating also incorporates Moody's belief that
there is risk associated with the integration of two large
acquisitions and the expectation that the company will continue to
look to add scale -- which is modest when compared to other
corporate issuers -- through additional acquisitions and expansion
of existing facilities. A significant reliance on revenue from
Medicaid patients could also result in continued pressure on
reimbursement rates as state budgets remain under pressure.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Acadia
will see improvement in financial metrics to levels it considers
more appropriate for the B1 rating category as recently acquired
facilities are integrated into the operations and the term loan is
repaid in accordance with its relatively aggressive amortization
schedule. The outlook also incorporates Moody's belief that the
company will remain disciplined with respect to the use of
incremental leverage for additional acquisitions or investment in
expansion.

Given the prospective nature of the ratings, Moody's does not
expect an upgrade of the rating in the near term. However, if the
company can reduce leverage below 4.0 times through debt repayment
or improvement in recently acquired facilities while balancing
growth opportunities and acquisitions, Moody's could upgrade the
ratings.

If the company is not able to improve financial metrics from pro
forma levels, including reducing debt to EBITDA to below 5.0 times
by the end of 2012, either because of a more aggressive pursuit of
growth, challenges in the integration of facilities or adverse
reimbursement developments, Moody's could downgrade the ratings.

The principal methodology used in rating Acadia Healthcare
Company, Inc. was the Global For-Profit Hospitals Industry
Methodology published in September 2008. Other methodologies used
include Loss Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial
Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.


AG FERRARI: No Near-Term Plans to Merge With Andronico's
--------------------------------------------------------
Jaehak Yu at the Daily Californian reports that the purchase of
A.G. Ferrari Foods by Renwood Opportunities Fund, a $50 million
partnership between Renovo Capital and Rosewood Private
Investments, was finalized Oct. 11, while the fund's $16 million
purchase of Andronico's Community Markets was approved Oct. 13.
The report says the actual purchase of Andronico's was expected to
be completed by the end of last week.

The report relates that Danielle Caponi, A.G. Ferrari's director
of marketing, said there are no plans for any merging Andronico's
and A.G. Ferrari's in the near term.  "They are two entirely
separate transactions from what I understand," the report quotes
Ms. Caponi as saying.  "A.G. Ferrari is a wholesaler, so the only
thing is that Andronico's might become a customer of ours.  But as
for any crossover between the two -- no."

According to the report, Ms. Caponi said A.G. Ferrari does not
plan on opening or closing any stores and currently does not have
any plans for employee layoffs.  She added that with the Renwood
acquisition, A.G. Ferrari will see a new CEO, John Clougher, who
is the former president of Whole Foods Market.  However, the
founder's grandson, Paul Ferrari, will remain president.  Despite
the new CEO, Ms. Caponi said there are no radical changes in store
for A.G. Ferrari.

                      About A.G. Ferrari Foods

A.G. Ferrari Foods filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D. Calif.
Case No. 11-43327) on March 28, 2011.  Eric A. Nyberg, Esq., at
Kornfield, Nyberg, Bendes and Kuhner, in Oakland, California,
represents the Debtor.  The Debtor estimated assets and debts of
$1 million to $10 million as of the Chapter 11 filing.

                    About Andronico's Markets

Andronico's Markets, Inc., aka Andronico's Community Markets, is
an independent, specialty supermarket operator in the San
Francisco Bay Area.  Founded in 1929, the Company operates seven
stores in prime upscale urban and suburban locations in Berkeley
(four stores), San Francisco, Los Altos, and San Anselmo.
Andronico's is a California C-corporation, owned by Solano

divided among various Andronico family members.

Andronico's filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. N.D. Calif.
Case No. 11-48963) on Aug. 22, 2011.  Judge Edward D. Jellen
oversees the case.  Attorneys at Murray & Murray, in Cupertino,
Calif., represent the Debtor as counsel.  Bailey, Elizondo &
Brinkman, LLC, serves as financial advisor.  The Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors has tapped Winston & Strawn LLP
as its counsel.

The Debtor scheduled $18,520,090 in assets and $67,094,619 in
liabilities as of the Chapter 11 filing.


AQUILEX HOLDINGS: Royal Bank Agrees to Forbear Until Dec. 8
-----------------------------------------------------------
Aquilex Holdings LLC and certain of its subsidiaries entered into
a Forbearance Agreement and Second Amendment in connection with
the Company's Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of
April 1, 2010, and amended on Feb. 28, 2011, with Royal Bank of
Canada, as Administrative Agent and L/C Issuer, and the required
lenders thereunder.

Pursuant and subject to the terms of the Forbearance Agreement,
the Administrative Agent, the L/C Issuer and the Required Lenders
agreed to forbear, until Dec. 8, 2011, from exercising default-
related rights and remedies against the Loan Parties with respect
to the Company's failure to comply with its financial maintenance
covenants (total leverage ratio, interest coverage ratio and
senior secured leverage ratio, each as defined in the Credit
Agreement) for the four-fiscal quarter period ended Sept. 30,
2011.  Pursuant to the terms of the Forbearance Agreement, the
applicable interest rate margin on the loans under the Credit
Agreement was increased by 1.00%.  During the Forbearance Period,
such additional interest may be paid in kind at the option of the
Company by adding the accrued interest to the principal amount of
the applicable loans.  The Forbearance Agreement also provides
that any LIBOR-based loans with interest periods expiring during
the Forbearance Period may be continued only at the discretion of
the Administrative Agent and only for one-month interest periods.
In addition, the parties to the Forbearance Agreement have agreed
that any auto-renewal letters of credit for which notice of non-
renewal would be due during the Forbearance Period will be
extended.  As a condition to the effectiveness of the Forbearance
Agreement, the Company agreed to pay a forbearance fee to
consenting lenders equal to $250,000, plus reimbursement of
certain fees and expenses.

ALTER COMMUNICATIONS: Has Oct. 21 Deadline to File Joint Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge James F. Schneider in Baltimore
refused to confirm competing plans for Alter Communications Inc.
In September, he directed the warring factions -- the Debtor and
H.G. Roebuck & Son Inc. -- to negotiate their differences and file
a joint plan by Oct. 21.  Absent a plan acceptable to both sides,
Judge Schneider said he would consider appointing a Chapter 11
trustee.

                    About Alter Communications

Based in Baltimore, Maryland, Alter Communications publishes the
Baltimore Jewish Times.  Other publications include the magazine
Style, with 90,000 circulation, and Chesapeake Life, with a
circulation of 57,000.

Alter Communications filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D.
Md. Case No. 10-18241) on April 14, 2010, after losing a $362,000
judgment to the printer, H.G. Roebuck & Son Inc.  Alan M. Grochal,
Esq., and Maria Ellena Chavez-Ruark, Esq., at Tydings and
Rosenberg, in Baltimore, serve as the Debtor's bankruptcy counsel.
The Debtor estimated assets and debts between $1 million and $10
million in its Chapter 11 petition.

In December 2010, the Bankruptcy Court approved Alter's Chapter 11
exit plan.  Roebuck appealed, saying the plan wasn't filed in good
faith and that it "discriminates unfairly."

In June 2011, the U.S. District Judge Court in Maryland set aside
the confirmation order.  Because Roebuck said it would pay more

AMC ENT: Fitch Affirms 'B' IDR, Drops Outlook to Negative
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the ratings of AMC Entertainment Inc.
(AMC), and AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (AMC Holdco; parent
company).  The Rating Outlook has been revised to Negative from
Stable.

The Negative Outlook reflect the weakening credit metrics
(interest coverage, EBITDA margins and gross leverage), and
reflects the limited headroom within the current ratings for
further deterioration.  If the upcoming movie slate and the recent
theater portfolio actions are unable to stabilize and drive
improved credit metrics, Fitch may downgrade the ratings one
notch.

As of June 30, 2011, when considering liquidity, AMC had $315
million in cash and AMC Holdco had $116 million (as of March 31,
2011) in cash.  Liquidity is also supported by full availability
under AMC's $192.5 million secured credit facility due 2015.  The
secured credit agreement contains a secured leverage covenant of
3.25x, which is calculated on a net basis.  Fitch does not believe
the company is at risk of breaching this covenant.  Current
amortization on the AMC term loan is $6.5 million annually.

Fitch calculated free cash flow (FCF) for latest 12 months was a
negative $37.2 million.  Fitch expects FCF to be approximately $25
million for the fiscal years ended 2012 and 2013.  This is based
on Fitch's projections of low- to mid-single-digit growth in
revenue and EBITDA for the 2012 and 2013 fiscal year periods.

As of June 30, 2011, Fitch calculates adjusted gross leverage at
6.9x, unadjusted gross leverage at 9.7x and, if the National
CineMedia LLC (NCM) dividend is included in EBITDA, unadjusted
gross leverage is at 8.7x.  Fitch expects unadjusted gross
leverage to remain above 7.5x over the next two fiscal year-end
periods.

Fitch believes it will be difficult for AMC to complete its
proposed initial public offering (IPO) given AMC's high leverage
and the current volatile state of the equity markets.  Fitch notes
that, if successful, proceeds from the IPO will be used primarily
to reduce debt and pay approximately $25 million to the sponsors.

AMC's Recovery Ratings reflect Fitch's expectation that the
enterprise value of the company and, hence, recovery rates for its
creditors, will be maximized in a restructuring scenario (going
concern) rather than a liquidation.  Fitch estimates an adjusted,
distressed enterprise valuation of $1.2 billion using a 5x
multiple and including an estimate for AMC's 16% stake in NCM of
approximately $190 million.  Based on this enterprise valuation,
overall recovery for total debt is approximately 50% (this is
before any administrative claims).

The 'RR1' Recovery Rating for the company's secured bank
facilities reflects Fitch's belief that 91%-100% expected recovery
is reasonable.  While Fitch does not assign Recovery Ratings for
the company's operating lease obligations, it is assumed the
company rejects only 30% of its remaining $2.6 billion in
operating lease commitments due to their significance to the
operations in a going-concern scenario and is liable for 15% of
those rejected values (at a net present value).  The 'RR4'
Recovery Ratings for AMC's senior unsecured notes (equal in
ranking to the rejected operating leases) reflect an expectation
of 31%-50% recovery.

As a result of the potential for 100% recovery for the senior
secured debt in Fitch's recovery analysis, Fitch assumes a nominal
concession payment is made to the subordinate debtholders in order
to secure their support of a reorganization plan.  The 'CCC/RR6'
rating for AMC's senior subordinated notes reflects the bonds'
structural seniority over AMC Holdco's debt ('CC/RR6') and Fitch's
expectation for nominal recovery.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings:

AMC

  -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'B';
  -- Senior secured credit facilities at 'BB/RR1';
  -- Senior unsecured notes at 'B/RR4';
  -- Senior subordinated notes at 'CCC/RR6'.

AMC Holdco

  -- IDR at 'B';
  -- Senior unsecured term loan 'CC'/RR6'.

The Rating Outlook is Negative.

Fitch has withdrawn the IDR rating of Marquee Holdings Inc. as the
entity no longer exists.

Marquee Holdings Inc.

  -- IDR of 'B' withdrawn.

AMERICAN ENERGY: Morrill & Associates Raises Going Concern Doubt
----------------------------------------------------------------
The American Energy Group, Ltd., filed on Oct. 13, 2011, its
annual report for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011.

Morrill & Associates, in Bountiful, Utah, expressed substantial
doubt about The American Energy Group's ability to continue as a
going concern.  The independent auditors noted that the Company
has suffered recurring losses and has no revenues.

The Company reported a net loss of $991,784 for the fiscal year
ended June 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of $942,792 for the
fiscal year ended June 30, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed $1.9 million
in total assets, $987,187 in total liabilities, and stockholders'
equity of $940,131.

AMERIGAS PARTNERS: Moody's Affirms Ba2 Corporate on Heritage Deal
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed AmeriGas Partners, L.P.'s Ba2
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and Ba3 senior unsecured rating upon
its announcement that the company plans to acquire Energy Transfer
Partners, L.P.'s (ETP, Baa3, negative) propane operations
(Heritage Operating, L.P. and Titan Energy Partners, LLC --
collectively Heritage) for a total consideration of up to $2.9
billion. Moody's also assigned a SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity
rating. The rating outlook remains stable.

"This acquisition will significantly enhance AmeriGas's scale and
geographic footprint in the US propane distribution industry, and
provide additional weather and customer diversity," said Sajjad
Alam, Moody's analyst. "On the negative side, AmeriGas will
deviate from its recent history of maintaining a conservative
leverage profile as it operates with a higher level of debt and
will face execution risk regarding integration of people,
technology and operating processes."

The purchase will be financed with approximately $1.5 billion of
debt and $1.3 billion in AmeriGas common units. The new AmeriGas
notes are expected to have substantially similar terms and
conditions as AmeriGas's existing unsecured notes. However, ETP
will enter into a contingent residual support agreement with
AmeriGas for certain intercompany loans that will indirectly
guarantee the debt financing. "We will evaluate whether to ascribe
any rating uplift to the acquisition debt for the ETP support, and
will make a determination upon receipt of full details on the
structure and review of final documentation," Moody's says.

While leverage will increase initially, the company's cash flows
will be underpinned by a more diversified asset and service base.
The size of the acquisition is very substantial relative to both
the size of AmeriGas and its past acquisitions, giving the company
roughly 16% market share in terms of volumes sold. The acquisition
is also highly complementary to AmeriGas's existing business,
increasing location density, improving efficiency and diversifying
its client and supplier mix, while further strengthening its
position as a leader in the highly fragmented U.S. propane
distribution industry.

The significant amount of upfront equity issuance is also
supportive to AmeriGas's ratings. However, leverage will rise to
approximately 4.3x and approach the higher end of the Ba2 rating
band immediately after the transaction reflecting the high
purchase multiple being paid (~11x based on June 30,2011 EBITDA)
and the transition period required to attain synergies. While
Moody's expects AmeriGas to lower its consolidated Debt to EBITDA
over time, weaker than anticipated earnings could keep leverage
elevated over a protracted period. The current higher leverage
level is accommodated by the size and diversification benefits
noted above.

There are also inherent execution and integration risks given the
significant size and scope of Heritage's operations and possible
differences in corporate culture. Combining technology, personnel
as well as operating and accounting processes between these two
very large and diverse entities will take time. However, the
combined businesses could achieve meaningful synergies and cost
reductions over time given their significant overlapping
geographic coverage.

AmeriGas should have adequate liquidity through the end of 2012
which is captured in our assigned SGL-3 liquidity rating, Moody's
says. Moody's expects slightly negative free cash flow in 2012
after capital expenditures and distributions. Revolver usage is
expected to follow historical trends, with seasonal fluctuations
resulting in peak balances during the heating season and minimum
balances in late summer. AmeriGas intends to increase the size of
its credit facility in connection with the acquisition. At June
30, 2011, the company had $36 million of letters of credits (LCs)
outstanding under the current $325 revolving credit facility. At
closing, Moody's expects AmeriGas to have similar amounts of LCs
and seasonal borrowings under the revolver. The company should be
in full compliance under the financial covenants governing the
credit agreement. The credit facility is expected to expire in
2015.

The stable outlook reflects AmeriGas's leading market position,
broadly diversified geographic presence, and Moody's expectation
that the company will look to reduce leverage towards its
historically conservative levels.

If AmeriGas can successfully integrate Heritage's operations and
achieve moderate growth in EBITDA leading to Debt/EBITDA
approaching 3.5x, a positive outlook or an upgrade would be
considered.

A negative rating action may result if leverage rises from post-
acquisition levels through debt funded acquisitions or
distributions or a fundamental change in business conditions. A
downgrade is likely if leverage rises above 4.5x.

The principal methodology used in rating AmeriGas Partners was the
Global Midstream Energy Industry Methodology, published December
2010.

AmeriGas Partners, L.P. is a publicly traded master limited
partnership that is the largest retail propane distributor in the
United States based on volumes of propane distributed annually.


AMERIGAS PARTNERS: Fitch Affirms 'BB+' Issuer Default Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has placed Amerigas Partners, LP (APU) and its
financing co-borrowers, Amerigas Finance Corp., and AP Eagle
Finance Corp., on Rating Watch Negative following the announcement
of its intention to acquire Heritage Propane for $2.9 billion.  A
full list of the ratings affected by today's action appears at the
end of this press release.  Separately, the ratings of UGI
Utilities, Inc. (UGIU, rated 'A-' by Fitch) have been affirmed and
are unaffected by today's announcement.  For additional
information on UGIU, please see Fitch release, 'Fitch Affirms UGI
Utilities IDR at 'A-', Senior Unsecured at 'A'; Outlook Stable',
dated Oct. 17, 2011.

The transaction is expected to be funded initially with a
combination of $1.3 billion in limited partner units issued to
Energy Transfer Partners LP (Heritage's owner) and $1.5 billion in
cash along with the assumption of $71 million in debt.  The rating
action reflects the expected increase in leverage at APU as a
result of the transaction as well as the execution risk associated
both with the integration and the financing plan.  Fitch
anticipates that on a pro forma basis Debt to EBITDA will
initially be over 4 times (x), which would be inconsistent with
the current ratings.  Reduction in leverage over time will be
dependent on both debt reduction and growth in EBITDA through the
maintenance of margins and sales volumes, and the realization of
operating synergies following the integration.  Additional risks
include greater than anticipated customer loss in the integration
as well as difficulties in achieving the projected synergies.

Operating History and Scale: APU's ratings reflect the underlying
strength of its retail propane distribution network, broad
geographic reach, and proven ability to manage unit margins under
various operating conditions.  Additionally, the company's growing
Amerigas Cylinder Exchange (ACE) propane cylinder exchange
business provides modest positive cash flow during the summer
months when the traditional space heating related propane
distribution business is relatively slow.

Weather Sensitivity and Demand Trends: APU's financial performance
nevertheless remains sensitive to weather and demand destruction
due to customer conservation, fuels switching and general economic
conditions.  The recessionary economy and relatively high price of
propane, which is more correlated to the price of oil than to
natural gas, has been exacerbating volume sales declines
throughout the sector.  These factors have the potential to lead
to further demand destruction, and could pressure profit margins.
Fitch notes however, that sales volume declines last year were
also due to warmer than normal weather in some of APU's service
territories.

Solid Financial Performance: Despite the headwinds facing the
retail propane distribution sector in recent years, APU has
maintained its financial profile.  For the 12 months ended June
30, 2011, Debt to Operating Earnings before Interest, Taxes,
Depreciation and Amortization was 3.4x while EBITDA to Interest
was 4.8x.  Funds from Operations (FFO) metrics were stronger at
26% of debt and covering interest 5.3x.  As noted above, Fitch
anticipates weakening of the financial metrics as a result of this
transaction.

Structural Subordination: APU's ratings also consider the
structural subordination of its debt obligations to revolver
borrowings at AmeriGas Propane LP, its operating limited
partnership subsidiary.  Fitch anticipates that the debt assumed
in this transaction will likely also reside at the operating
partnership level.

Liquidity and Capital Structure: As of June 30, 2011, APU's
liquidity included $6.2 million of cash and $113.3 million of
availability under the operating partnership's $325 million
revolving credit facility.  For the nine months ended June 30,
2011, the average daily borrowings under the revolver were $161.8
million, with peak borrowings of $235 million.  Fitch anticipates
that the revolver which expires in 2015 will be resized to meet
the liquidity needs of the combined company.

The existing bank facility has financial covenants which include a
consolidated MLP (AmeriGas Partners, L.P.) total leverage (debt to
EBITDA) ratio which cannot exceed 5.0x. The consolidated borrower
(AmeriGas Propane, L.P.) leverage ratio cannot exceed 2.75x.
Interest coverage defined as the consolidated EBITDA of the MLP
and its subsidiaries to the interest expense of the MLP and its
subsidiaries must exceed 2.75x.

Currently APU does not have significant debt maturities until
2019.

Rating Triggers: Going forward, resolution of the Watch will be
dependent on improvement in credit metrics and successful
completion of the integration. Significant changes in distribution
practices, beyond the increase announced as part of this
transaction, could also negatively impact the ratings.

Fitch has placed the following ratings on Rating Watch Negative:

AmeriGas Partners, L.P./Amerigas Finance Corp.

  -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'BB+';
  -- Senior unsecured at 'BB+';

AmeriGas Partners, L.P./AP Eagle Finance Corp.

  -- IDR at 'BB+';
  -- Senior unsecured at 'BB+'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Amerigas Propane, Inc. an indirect subsidiary of UGI Corp. (NYSE:
UGI; NR) owns an effective 44% interest in APU as the general
partner and a limited partner. APU is a master limited partnership
that conducts a national propane distribution business through its
operating partnership subsidiary, Amerigas Propane, LP, and its
subsidiaries. The APU debt is co-issued with either of its special
purpose financing subsidiaries AP Eagle Finance Corp. and AmeriGas
Finance Corp.

ANDRONICO'S MARKETS: No Near-Term Plans to Merge With AG Ferrari
----------------------------------------------------------------
Jaehak Yu at the Daily Californian reports that the purchase of
A.G. Ferrari Foods by Renwood Opportunities Fund, a $50 million
partnership between Renovo Capital and Rosewood Private
Investments, was finalized Oct. 11, while the fund's $16 million
purchase of Andronico's Community Markets was approved Oct. 13.
The report says the actual purchase of Andronico's was expected to
be completed by the end of last week.

The report relates that Danielle Caponi, A.G. Ferrari's director
of marketing, said there are no plans for any merging Andronico's
and A.G. Ferrari's in the near term.  "They are two entirely
separate transactions from what I understand," the report quotes
Ms. Caponi as saying.  "A.G. Ferrari is a wholesaler, so the only
thing is that Andronico's might become a customer of ours.  But as
for any crossover between the two -- no."

According to the report, Ms. Caponi said A.G. Ferrari does not
plan on opening or closing any stores and currently does not have
any plans for employee layoffs.  She added that with the Renwood
acquisition, A.G. Ferrari will see a new CEO, John Clougher, who
is the former president of Whole Foods Market.  However, the
founder's grandson, Paul Ferrari, will remain president.  Despite
the new CEO, Ms. Caponi said there are no radical changes in store
for A.G. Ferrari.

ATLANTIC POWER: Moody's Assigns 'Ba3' Corporate Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned inaugural ratings for
Atlantic Power Corporation (ATP), including a Corporate Family
Rating of Ba3, a Probability of Default Rating of Ba3, a
Speculative Liquidity Rating of SGL-2, and a senior unsecured
rating of B1 to ATP's planned issuance of $460 million seven year
senior unsecured notes in conjunction with its pending acquisition
of Capital Power Income L.P. (CPILP). The rating outlook is
stable.

In June 2011, ATP announced an agreement to acquire CPILP for
total consideration of approximately $2.2 billion, composed of a
cash consideration of approximately $525 million, 31.5 million of
ATP common shares (approximately $460 million), and the assumption
of approximately $1.25 billion of liabilities, including
approximately $900 million of debt and preferred shares. ATP will
use the proceeds of the USD 460 million notes issuance and an
approximately USD 143 million public share issuance to finance the
cash portion of consideration, transaction costs, management fees
and taxes, and to repay outstanding borrowings under CPILP's
revolving credit facility. ATP's financing plan includes a USD 300
million four year secured revolving credit. Moody's ratings assume
that the merger occurs and the financing plan closes as expected.

"ATP's management will have a full plate over the next 12-24
months", said Bill Hunter, VP and Senior Analyst. "The company
will need to integrate CPILP's much larger employee base and
negotiate new contracts for some of its projects in Florida and
Ontario. A relatively high degree of leverage and a high dividend
payout ratio will limit financial flexibility."

Moody's Ba3 Corporate Family Rating is based on the diversity of
cash flows of the post-merger ATP (which will have ownership
interests in approximately 30 power generation projects across the
US and Canada and one electric transmission project), the high
percentage of contracted cash flows, management's strategy to add
contracted projects to the portfolio, apparently well-hedged near
to medium-term positions with respect to fuel and foreign exchange
exposures and initially sufficient liquidity. These positive
factors are balanced against relatively high leverage, challenges
with respect to merger integration, re-contracting requirements as
some relatively large contracts expire in the next few years, the
need for growth to maintain cash flows based on an expectation
that post-re-contracting cash flows of existing projects will
decrease, a financial policy that includes payment of essentially
all excess cash as dividends, significant refinancing needs during
the term of the notes, a complex organizational structure with
debt obligations at many different levels, and an ongoing expected
mismatch of cash flows weighed more heavily to US Dollars and
liabilities weighed more heavily to Canadian Dollars. The B1
senior unsecured rating is based on Moody's Loss Given Default
Methodology and takes into account the notes' structural
subordination as well as their junior position relative to the
senior secured revolver and secured hedging obligations at the
parent. Due to ATP's complex organizational/financing structure,
the unsecured ATP notes appear to be structurally subordinated not
only to project-level secured debt but also to certain unsecured
subsidiary obligations, notably existing CPILP debt and preferred
stock.

Moody's calculates that post-merger ATP will have approximately
2,110 MW of net capacity at 32 projects. No project accounted for
more than 10% of 2010 pro-forma project EBITDA or would be
expected to account for more than 7% of projected EBITDA after the
completion/ramp-up of projects currently in construction. Pro-
forma contracted 2010 project EBITDA approached 90%.
Geographically, ATP will enter the Canadian market and expand its
presence in California and the US Mid-west, adding greater balance
to a current primarily eastern US portfolio. "We calculate that
project EBITDA would be expected to break down geographically as
26% Canada, 20% Southeast, 20% Northeast, 16% Northwest, 13%
Midwest, 5% Southwest; by fuel type it would be expected to break
down as 60% natural gas, 16% bio-mass, 14% hydro, 7% coal and 3%
wind," Moody's says. The merger is expected to increase the
weighted average heat rate of natural gas fired assets, but also
to increase the average remaining contract life.

The merger will be transformative for ATP and brings substantial
integration challenges to a relatively small senior management
team. Post-merger ATP will have a period of heightened business
risk. ATP has historically outsourced plant operations, human
resources and several other functions. Its current headcount of
approximately 15 employees will grow to approximately 290 after
the merger, including employees in Ontario and British Columbia
working under collective bargaining arrangements (one collective
bargaining agreement in British Columbia expires later this year).
The company has hired an interim CFO and an interim CIO as well as
consulting firms with substantial industry and integration
experience to spearhead the integration effort. ATP reports it
will have post-merger access to a broad suite of shared services
provided Capital Power Corporation, CPILP's general partner,
including labor relations advisory. The search process for a
permanent CFO and certain other key management roles is underway.

Management's stated strategy is to pursue growth in contracted
power projects, including portfolio acquisitions and development
of biomass and wind projects, while negotiating new contracts for
existing projects as their contracts expire. Substantial contract
expiries will take place during the term of the notes. Moody's
calculates that by 2018, project EBITDA from contracts currently
in place will be approximately 50% of the 2010 pro-forma amount
(assuming no EBITDA from growth projects). Nearer term contract
expiries include those for the Auburndale and Lake projects in
Florida in 2013 and those for the Nipigon and Tunis projects in
Ontario in 2012 and 2014, respectively. In both of these markets
Moody's believes that the only viable option will be bilateral
contracts. ATP reports that it has succeeded in re-contracting six
projects in the past and that its business plan incorporates an
expectation of lower cash flows from these assets, whose original
contracts reflected different regulatory and market fundamentals.
Generally successful re-contracting will be necessary to maintain
the cash flow metrics needed to maintain the current ratings. To
maintain the existing cash flows, growth in the portfolio will
also be necessary.

From 2012-2018, Moody's calculates that ATP will need to refinance
about $647 million equivalent of existing maturity obligations
prior to the maturity of the senior unsecured notes, including
$240 million in 2014, $100 million in 2015, and $307 million in
2017. ATP's refinancing needs would increase by the amount of
required amortizations on any debt incurred for growth projects.
Because ATP's dividend policy resembles that of a master limited
partnership (MLP), it will need to access markets to refinance
these amounts. During this period there will be an additional
approximately $249 million of maturities on project-level non-
recourse debt (this is a proportional number, including projects
that are not consolidated), which maturities are expected to be
serviced by project cash flows. Moody's includes the cumulative
preferred shares issued by a CPILP subsidiary as a debt-equivalent
instrument from the ATP bond-holder perspective, because they are
structurally senior in the organization chart and have access to a
very substantial percentage of the cash flows of the post-merger
ATP.

Moody's SGL-2 rating reflects good liquidity for the next four
quarters. This rating is based on ATP's expected ability to use
cash flow to meet basic cash requirements (including maintenance
Capex and approximately CAD 126 million of common dividends), as
well as its access to a USD 300 million revolving credit that will
also be used for letter of credit issuance. In the absence of a
pre-funding of material maturities or other offsetting factors,
ATP's SGL Rating would be expected to decline when the four-
quarter forward view includes material maturing obligations.

Moody's B1 senior unsecured rating reflects structural
subordination of the unsecured notes relative to obligations of
ATL's subsidiaries and effective subordination relative to the
senior secured revolving credit, which is expected to be secured
by equity interests of certain subsidiaries (including CPILP) as
well as certain cash accounts, inter-company loans and notes and
certain other assets. The revolving credit will be guaranteed by
certain legacy ATP subsidiaries that have pledged certain of their
assets (primarily shares of their subsidiaries) as collateral.
Certain ATP subsidiaries are also expected to provide an unsecured
guarantee for the senior unsecured notes. CPILP is expected to
provide an unsecured guarantee to both ATP's senior secured
revolver and unsecured notes. Upstream guarantees may be released
upon sale of the subsidiary or its assets, and their realizable
value may be limited based on the consideration received by each
guarantor for granting the guarantee. The terms of the notes
provide ATP flexibility to incur some additional secured debt and
effectively unrestricted ability to incur additional debt at
subsidiaries, both of which could further dilute the position of
the ATP unsecured notes.

The stable outlook reflects the high percentage of contracted cash
flows in the near term as well as the diversity of the generating
fleet and an expectation that management's apparent keen focus on
bringing the two companies and their systems and people into one
organization will lead to a successful integration.

Ratings assigned:

Issuer: Atlantic Power Corporation

Corporate Family Rating: Assigned Ba3

Probability of Default Rating: Assigned Ba3

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating: Assigned SGL-2

Senior Unsecured Notes: Assigned B1, LGD 80.58%

Outlook: Stable

If integration proceeds smoothly and greater clarity about terms
of replacement contracts in Florida and Ontario is obtained, such
that CFO pre-WC to debt would be expected to exceed 15% and
retained cash flow would be expected to exceed 11% on a
sustainable basis, the ratings could be upgraded.

Ratings could be downgraded if a problematic integration leads to
operating issues, if cash traps in certain project debt agreements
prevent ATP from realizing expected distributions from
subsidiaries, or if replacement contracts in Florida and Ontario
provide lower than expected cash flows, such that CFO pre-WC to
debt would be expected to be lower than 11% or retained cash flow
would be expected to be lower than 8% on a sustained basis.

Atlantic Power Corporation, incorporated in British Columbia and
listed on the NYSE and TSX, is an independent power producer that
owns interests in a diversified fleet of power generation and
transmission projects located in the United States. The company
has agreed to acquire Capital Power Income L.P., a Canadian income
trust that owns power generation assets located in Canada and the
United States.

BERNARD L. MADOFF: Feeder Fund Investors' Claims to be Decided
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that whether investors in feeder funds have customer
claims against Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities Inc. may be
decided on appeal by the year's end.  Feeder fund investors filed
their brief on Oct. 14 in the appeal to be decided by U.S.
District Judge Denise L. Cote.

Separately, U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff will decide if the
Internal Revenue Code provides a defense to customers being sued
by the trustee for recovery of fictitious profits.

Mr. Rochelle recounts that the bankruptcy judge wrote a 33-page
opinion in June explaining why investors in so-called feeder funds
don't have customer claims in the Madoff liquidation.  Their
claims are against the feeder firms, the bankruptcy judge ruled.

Individual investors in feeder funds stand to realize a smaller
recovery if their claim must be made through the feeder fund than
if they each had direct claims against the Madoff firm.

The Madoff trustee will file his brief in support of the
bankruptcy court ruling by Nov. 4.  The feeder fund customers'
reply briefs must be filed by Nov. 11.

Those filing appeals included the Trustees of Tufts College, Axa
Private Management, National Bank of Kuwait SAK, and Aozora Bank
Ltd.

Judge Rakoff, according to Mr. Rochelle, wrote a two-page order on
Oct. 13 saying he is taking parts of 32 lawsuits out of bankruptcy
court.  The customers are contending that the federal Bankruptcy
Code's fraudulent transfer law is superseded by the Internal
Revenue Code.  They argue that the IRS Code in effect forced
investors to take money out of their Madoff accounts to avoid
heavy taxes on older people who don't draw down their retirement
accounts.  Judge Rakoff will also decide if his September ruling
in a lawsuit involving Mets owner Fred Wilpon also applies to
customers who weren't alleged to have reason to believe Madoff was
conducting a fraud.  Judge Rakoff ruled that the trustee can only
sue for fictitious profits taken out within two years of
bankruptcy, not six as sought by the trustee.  Judge Rakoff will
also rule on whether the balances in customers' accounts are bona
fide debts that can be used to offset fraudulent transfer claims.

Judge Rakoff said he will write an opinion "in due course."

                  Document-Production Procedures

Mr. Rochelle in an earlier report said that Mr. Picard filed
papers on Sept. 28 defending his proposal for streamlining
document production in the 900 lawsuits he filed against 5,000
defendants.  Out of 16,000 notices the trustee sent, there were 15
objections, the trustee said.  Some were resolved. Unresolved
objections contended that the trustee is unilaterally abrogating
confidentiality agreements.  As to the objectors, the trustee
points out how a confidentiality agreement doesn't rise to the
level of a protective order signed by a court.

                      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 Dec. 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.).  Mr. Picard has retained AlixPartners LLP as claims
agent.

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
US$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.)

As of July 15, 2011, a total of US$6.88 billion in claims by
investors has been allowed, with US$794.9 million to be paid by
the Securities Investor Protection Corp.  Investors are expected
to receive additional distributions from money recovered by Mr.
Picard from lawsuits or settlements.


BLOCKBUSTER CANADA: Receiver Seeks Dismissal of Ch. 15 Case
-----------------------------------------------------------
Grant Thornton Ltd., in its capacity as duly appointed receiver of
Blockbuster Canada Co. in a foreign proceeding, asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to dismiss
the Debtor's Chapter 15 case.

"The need for the Chapter 15 case no longer exists," Robert J.
Feinstein, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, in New
York, asserts.

The Chapter 15 case was filed in order to provide a means of
efficiently resolving a cross-border dispute with insolvency
proceedings pending in both U.S. and Canadian jurisdictions.  The
case was precipitated by two events: (i) the entry of an order by
the Ontario Superior Court of Justice Commercial List in May 2011
for the appointment of the Receiver and the restraint of various
activities against Blockbuster Canada, and (ii) Blockbuster Inc.'s
motion to reject two contracts with Blockbuster Canada.

Through mediation, the Receiver and New Blockbuster have reached
an agreement of the dispute whereby (1) Blockbuster Canada will be
allowed to use the "BLOCKBUSTER" trademarks and services
associated with the contracts during their going-out-of-business
sale in exchange for payment in accordance with the contracts, and
(2) the Receiver will withdraw its opposition to the contract
rejection and will seek dismissal of the Chapter 15 case.

                    About Blockbuster Canada

Chapter 15 case for Blockbuster Canada (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No.
11-12433) in Manhattan on May 20, 2011, to seek the U.S. Court's
recognition of the receivership proceedings in Canada.  Robert J.
Feinstein, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, serves as
counsel for Grant Thornton.  Blockbuster Canada is estimated to
have $50 million to $100 million in assets and liabilities.

BLUEGREEN CORP: To Sell Communities to Southstar for $31.5-Mil.
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Bluegreen Corporation made a
determination in June 2011 to seek to sell the Company's Bluegreen
Communities business segment, or all or substantially all of
Communities' assets.  As a consequence, Communities is accounted
for as a discontinued operation in the Company's financial
statements.

On Oct. 12, 2011, a Purchase and Sale Agreement was entered into
between seven of the Company's subsidiaries with respect to the
Communities' assets being sold and Southstar Development Partners,
Inc., providing for the sale to Southstar of substantially all of
the assets that comprise Communities.  Subject to the terms and
conditions of the Agreement, Southstar has agreed to (i) purchase
these assets from the Sellers for a purchase price of
$31.5 million in cash and (ii) pay to the Sellers, in cash, an
amount equal to 20% of the net proceeds it receives upon its sale,
if any, of two specified parcels of real estate to be purchased by
Southstar under the Agreement.  Southstar has advised the Company
that they need to obtain debt or equity financing in order to
close the Transaction, but obtaining such financing is not a Buyer
condition of Closing.  As the Transaction is an asset sale,
liabilities not assumed by Southstar under the Agreement and
liabilities related to Communities' operations prior to the
closing of the Transaction will be retained by the Sellers.

As of the date of the Agreement, Southstar had paid two cash
deposits totaling $300,000 under the Agreement, $250,000 of which
is being held in escrow pending Closing.  The Agreement provides
for the Buyer being entitled to a return of all or a portion of
its Deposit in connection with certain provisions of the
Agreement, such as Southstar's remaining title, survey and
environmental due diligence, receipt of estoppels and consents as
to certain specified contracts, Seller's breach under the
Agreement not cured within the applicable cure period, casualty
events and condemnation events.  If, by Nov. 4, 2011, the results
of such due diligence do not satisfy certain standards established
by the terms of the Agreement, Southstar may terminate the
Agreement and $250,000 of the deposit will be refunded. Otherwise,
Southstar will be required to deposit an additional $200,000 by
Nov. 4, 2011, at which point the entire $500,000 deposit will be
nonrefundable, subject to the performance by the Sellers of their
obligations under the Agreement and remaining conditions in the
Agreements relating to estoppels, consents, casualty, and
condemnation.  The Agreement provides for the Transaction to be
consummated on a date no earlier than Dec. 2, 2011, and no later
than Feb. 3, 2012; provided that the closing may be accelerated
upon mutual agreement of Sellers and Buyer or extended until a
date no later than March 5, 2012, to the extent necessary for all
required consents to the transfer of certain operating contracts
related to Communities' business to be obtained.

The Agreement contains certain representations and warranties on
the part of Sellers and Southstar which the Company believes to be
customary for transactions of this nature, as well certain
covenants, including non-competition and other restrictive
covenants.  The closing of the Transaction is also subject to the
results of Southstar's remaining due diligence, Southstar's
payment of the additional deposit, the parties' receipt of all
required consents, in each case as described above, and certain
other customary closing conditions, including the performance by
the parties of their respective obligations under the Agreement.
There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be consummated
on the contemplated terms, including in the contemplated time
frame, or at all.

J. Larry Rutherford, a former director of the Company, is the
President and Chief Executive Officer of Southstar.

Certain of the assets contemplated to be sold in the Transaction
collateralize a note payable to H4BG, which currently has a
balance of approximately $24.0 million.  That debt would be
required to be repaid upon the sale of the collateral.

                       About Bluegreen Corp.

Bluegreen Corporation -- http://www.bluegreencorp.com/-- provides
places to live and play through its resorts and residential
community businesses.

In December 2010, Standard & Poor's Rating Services raised its
corporate credit rating on Bluegreen Corp to 'B-' from 'CCC'.
S&P's rating outlook on the Company is stable.  S&P believes that
Bluegreen will grow its fee-based sales commission revenue from
$20 million in 2009 to an estimated $50 million in 2010.  At this
time, S&P expects that Bluegreen may be able to generate at least
the same amount of commission based revenue in 2011.  While the
increase in fee- based revenue allowed Bluegreen to expand the
level of sales that do not require financing, S&P believes that
the company will likely remain heavily reliant on its lines of
credit, receivable- backed warehousing facilities, and access to
the timeshare securitization markets to fund timeshare sales.  In
S&P's view, Bluegreen currently has adequate sources of liquidity
to cover its needs over the next 12-18 months mainly due to the
successful closing of a timeshare securitization transaction.

The Company reported a net loss of $35.87 million on
$365.67 million of revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010,
compared with net income of $3.90 million on $367.36 million of
revenue during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed $1.14 billion
in total assets, $848.80 million in total liabilities, and
$295.91 million total shareholders' equity.

BOUNDARY BAY: Joel M. Pores Approved to Handle Rafael Action
------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California
authorized Boundary Bay Capital, LLC to employ the Law Office of
Joel M. Pores as special counsel.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 29, 2011, the
Debtor is one of several plaintiffs in an action for legal
malpractice that has been filed against "former counsel."  Former
Counsel advised the Plaintiffs with respect to the preparation of
an offering Circular.  The Action relates, in part, to certain
alleged non-disclosures in the Offering Circular, which have lead
to the Rafael Action and to other potential liability, including
the Department of Corporations action.

The Debtor related that the Rafael Action involves claims not

refund plus punitive damages.  The Chapter 11 Rafael Claim is for
$1,000,000.

The Debtor disclosed that, pursuant to the Agreement, Special
Counsel will perform legal services on behalf of certain of the
Debtor's affiliates.  The Debtor and the Affiliates each (i)
consent to the Special Counsel representing the others, (ii) waive
any and all conflicts of interest, which may exist or arise by
reason of Special Counsel's representation, and (iii) agree that
failure of the Debtor or any of the Affiliates to agree on any
issue may constitute cause for Special Counsel to withdraw.

The Debtor is authorized to pay special counsel its proportionate
share of the flat fees and actual, out-of-pocket expenses.  The
Court also approved special counsel's contingent fee arrangement.

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

BRIGHAM EXPLORATION: Outstanding Shares to be Acquired by Statoil
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Statoil ASA and Brigham Exploration Company entered into a merger
agreement for Statoil to acquire all of the outstanding shares of
Brigham for $36.5 per share through an all-cash tender offer.

The Brigham Board of Directors has unanimously recommended to its
shareholders that they accept the offer.  Ben "Bud" M. Brigham,
Chairman, President and CEO and the other executive officers and
directors of Brigham, who collectively own approximately 2.5% of
the outstanding shares, have agreed to tender all of their shares.

The total equity value is approximately $4.4 billion, reflecting
an enterprise value of $4.7 billion, based on June 30, 2011, net
debt.

Brigham, based in Austin, Texas, has over 100 employees in Austin
and North Dakota and a strong position in the attractive Bakken
and Three Forks tight oil plays in the Williston Basin in North
Dakota and Montana.

"The US unconventional plays hold a substantial resource base and
represent an increasingly important part of future energy
supplies.  Statoil has step by step developed industrial
capabilities through early entrance into Marcellus and Eagle Ford.
Entering the Bakken and Three Forks tight oil plays and taking on
operatorship represents a new significant step for Statoil.  We
are positioning ourselves as a leading player in the fast growing
US onshore oil and gas industry, in line with the strategic
direction we have set out," says Helge Lund, President and CEO of
Statoil.

The transaction will provide Statoil with more than 375,000 net
acres in the Williston Basin, which holds potential for oil
production from the Bakken and Three Forks formations.  Brigham
also holds interests in 40,000 net acres in other areas.  At this
early stage of development the risked resource base is estimated
at 300-500 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe), equity.
Current equity production is approximately 21,000 boe per day, and
the acreage has potential to ramp up to 60,000-100,000 boe per day
equity production over a five year period.

The Bakken and Three Forks formations are among the largest oil
accumulations in the United States.  Various sources have
estimated the technically recoverable reserves to be in the range
of 5 - 24 billion boe, over a 38,000 square kilometers area.  The
attractiveness of the Bakken and Three Forks plays has resulted in
Statoil offering a 36% premium over the average trading price of
Brigham stock for the last 30 days.

"A bigger enterprise with a larger balance sheet will be better
positioned to take advantage of our large and growing inventory of
Williston Basin drilling locations and the associated assets.  We
are excited to see this transaction completed and look forward to
having our assets and employees integrate with the Statoil
organization and the substantial asset position that they are
growing in their U. S. onshore business," says Bud Brigham,
Brigham Exploration's Chairman, President and CEO.

"Brigham has proven itself as a premier operator with a highly
attractive position in the Williston Basin.  We are a strong
strategic fit, as both companies put a premium on technological
innovation and advancement.  We look forward to creating value and
developing this position further together with our new
colleagues," says CEO Helge Lund of Statoil.

Tight oil reservoirs are being developed with similar methods as
shale gas and liquids with long lateral wells that are
hydraulically fractured, and have similar production profiles.
Commercial tight oil extraction is a relatively new activity and
has increased significantly the last couple of years.  The oil
produced from the Bakken and Three Forks formations is a light
crude quality.  Oil production from Brigham's assets in Bakken has
low CO2 emissions.

Brigham has demonstrated strong operational capabilities by
adapting new technology in horizontal drilling and hydraulic
fracture stimulations to develop the tight oil resources in the
Williston Basin.  Brigham has drilled 88 consecutive producing
North Dakota wells, with an average early 24 hour peak production
rate of approximately 2,800 boe per day.  The company currently
operates 12 rigs in the area and aims to drill approximately 140
wells per year.

"We are impressed by the performance and technological prowess
demonstrated by the employees of Brigham and look forward to
further responsible development of these world class assets.  We
will build on Brigham's good neighbor program and continue to
engage with local authorities and communities in the Williston
Basin area," says Bill Maloney, Executive Vice President for
Statoil in North America.

Statoil will continue to build upon Brigham's operational
capability, and will maintain the Austin location.  Retention
plans for employees are in place.  Statoil will emphasize safety,
efficiency and business continuity during the integration period.
Statoil is committed to leveraging its technological competence,
project execution skills and financial capability to secure
continued high operational performance and value creation.  The
Brigham transaction also provides Statoil with approximately 430
miles (690 kilometers) of oil, natural gas and water
transportation systems centrally located in the Williston Basin.
This will not only secure offtake, but it will also significantly
limit the environmental footprint and allow Statoil to continue to
implement industry leading HSE standards.

The cash tender offer is expected to commence within 10 business
days and shareholders will have 20 business days following the day
of commencement to tender their shares.  The transaction is
subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the merger

CAGLE'S INC: File Voluntary Petitions to Reorganize
---------------------------------------------------
Cagle's, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary Cagle's Farms, Inc.
have filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  Cagle's filed the petitions today in the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of
Georgia in Atlanta, Georgia.

Cagle's emphasized that normal operations and customer service
will continue without disruption, including sales, order
processing, and delivery.  In connection with its Chapter 11
filing, Cagle's also announced that it anticipates receiving court
approval for a debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing facility from
AgSouth Farm Credit, ACA.

Cagle's noted that, over the past few years, the poultry industry
has been under severe stress due to historically high corn and
soybean meal prices coupled with sagging chicken prices caused by
an oversupply of broilers.  As a result, Cagle's has incurred
significant operating losses that have depleted its liquidity and
working capital position.

"After careful consideration we concluded that a Chapter 11
restructuring represents the best long-term solution for Cagle's,
Inc. and Cagle's Farms, Inc.," said J. Douglas Cagle, Chairman,
President and CEO.  "It is our goal to reach an agreement with our
creditors in a quick and efficient manner, allowing us to
restructure our debt with minimal disruption to our operations."

"We appreciate the ongoing loyalty and support of our employees,
growers, customers and vendors," Cagle commented, "Their
dedication and hard work is critical to our success.  We remain
committed to leading Cagle's toward a strong and profitable future
with the help of our employees, our growers, our customer base,
and our vendor community.  Cagle's remains a viable business that
is deeply committed to our employees and the customers that we
serve."

Cagle's has not set a target date for emergence from Chapter 11,
but Cagle stressed that the company's strategy is to move quickly.
"There is much work ahead," he stated, "but time and time again,
our employees have proven their ability to face significant
challenges and handle change.  By working together, we can
preserve Cagle's and its future."

Cagle's, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is an integrated
poultry company that has been in operation for over sixty years.
Cagle's expresses its sincere gratitude to the multitude of
employees, growers, vendors and customers that have contributed to
Cagle's success and growth over these many years and thanks them
for their loyal support.


CENTRAL FALLS, RI: Health Care for Life Ends for Police Commander
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that the receiver for the city of Central Falls, Rhode
Island, filed papers in bankruptcy court to terminate an agreement
the city made in April to provide health insurance benefits for
life to a retired police commander named Rudolph Legenza.  The
receiver said that Mr. Legenza's benefits exceed those of all
other city workers who are now required to take Medicare benefits
on reaching age 65.  Mr. Legenza turned 65 in August.

                       About Central Falls

Central Falls is a city in Providence County, Rhode Island.  The
population was 18,928 at the 2000 census.  Central Falls is the
smallest and most densely populated city in Rhode Island.

Central Falls sought bankruptcy protection under Chapter 9 of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. R.I. Case No. 11-13105) on Aug. 1,
2011.  The Chapter 9 filing was made after former Rhode Island
Supreme Court Judge Robert Flanders, who serves as state-appointed
receiver for the city, was unable to negotiate significant
concessions from unions representing police officers, firefighters
and other city workers.  The city grappled with an $80 million
unfunded pension and retiree health benefit liability that is
nearly quadruple its annual budget of $17 million.  Judge Robert
Flanders succeeded the role from retired Superior Court Associate
Justice Mark A. Pfeiffer, who was appointed in July 2010.  The
Central Falls receivership, the state's first, has left the mayor
and council without any power to govern.

Judge Frank Bailey presides over the Chapter 9 case.  Theodore
Orson, Esq., at Orson and Brusini Ltd., serves as bankruptcy
counsel to the receiver.

The receiver is negotiating new contracts with unions representing
city workers.  The receiver filed a proposed debt adjustment plan
for the city in September.  It won't affect bondholders.


CHEF SOLUTIONS: Has Interim Access to $4-Mil. Wells DIP Facility
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware has granted Chef Solutions and its affiliates access to
postpetition financing from Wells Fargo Capital Finance, Inc., up
to $4,000,000 on an interim basis up to Nov. 4, 2011.  The Debtors
have earlier asked the Court authorization to access the DIP
facility of up to $28,000,000 from Wells Fargo.

The Wells Fargo lenders were also granted first priority security
interests in and liens on, all of the DIP Collateral to secure the
Wells DIP Facility and all of the obligations owed under the loan
documents under the Wells DIP Facility.

The material provisions of the DIP Facility Agreement with Wells
Fargo are:

     A. Lender:  Wells Fargo Capital Finance, Inc., and other
        lenders are the lenders under the Wells DIP Facility
        Agreement.  Additionally, the Wells Fargo and Mistral Chef
        Holdings, LLC, have entered into a Junior Participation
        Agreement, pursuant to which each Wells lender has agreed
        to sell, and Mistral Chef has agreed to purchase, a junior
        participation interest in all of the rights and
        obligations of each Wells lender under the Wells DIP
        Facility Agreement in an aggregate amount for all Wells
        lenders equal to $3,300,000.

     B. Amount:  The Wells Lenders agree to make available up to
        exceeding $28,000,000 but does not consist entirely of new
        money advances.  Rather, the amounts represent a "roll-up"
        of the Senior Prepetition Loan in exchange for the ability
        to continue to use the revolver, the improvement of
        certain terms and an increase in the availability.

     C. Use of Proceeds:  The proceeds of the Wells DIP Facility
        will be used to (a) pay transactional fees, costs and
        expenses incurred in connection with the Wells DIP
        Facility Agreement, and (b) consistent with the terms and
        conditions of the Wells DIP Facility Agreement and in
        accordance with the Budget, for general corporate purposes
        including the funding of capital expenditures and working
        capital and the repayment of the Senior Prepetition Loan.

     D. Partial Roll-Up:  On an interim basis, the DIP Facilities
        effect a "partial roll-up"of the Senior Prepetition Loan.
        The Debtors are required to apply one hundred percent of
        all collections on, and proceeds of, the DIP Collateral to
        repay the Senior Prepetition Loan except with respect to
        priority repayment of Agent Advances.

     E. Interest Rate:  If the relevant advance under the Wells
        DIP Facility Agreement bears interest at a rate determined
        by reference to the LIBOR Rate, the interest rate is at a
        per annum rate equal to the LIBOR Rate plus 5.00%.  If the
        relevant advance under the Wells DIP Facility Agreement
        bears interest at a rate determined by reference to the
        Base Rate, the interest rate is at a per annum rate equal
        to the Base Rate plus 1.75%.  The Borrowers may elect for
        an advance to be a LIBOR Rate Loan.  If the Borrowers do
        not make this election or are not entitled to make this
        election due to the nature of the borrowing, each Advance
        will be a Base Rate Loan.

     F. Liens: To secure the DIP Obligations, the Wells Interim
        DIP Order provides for the benefit of the Agent and the
        Wells Lenders, valid, enforceable and fully perfected,
        first priority liens on and senior security interests in
        all of the DIP Collateral.

     G. Superpriority Claims:  The Interim Orders provide that the
        Wells Lenders and Reser's will be granted allowed
        superpriority administrative expenses claims in each of
        the Debtor's Chapter 11 Cases and in any successor cases
        under the Bankruptcy Code for all DIP Obligations, having
        priority over any and all other claims against the
        Debtors, except that the Reser's DIP Superpriority Claim
        will be subordinate to the Wells DIP Superpriority Claim.
        The Wells DIP Superpriority Claim and the Reser's DIP
        Superpriority Claim will be subject and subordinate in
        priority of payment only to payment of the Carve-Out.

     H. Fees:  The Wells Borrower will pay Agent a Letter of
        Credit Fee which will accrue at a rate equal to 2.75% per
        annum times the Daily Balance of the undrawn amount of all
        outstanding Letters of Credit.

     I. Carve-out: The Wells Fargo lenders' liens are subject to a
        $400,000 carve-out.

John H. Knight at Richards, Layton & Finger P.A., tells the Court
that the Debtors do not have sufficient available sources of
working capital, including cash collateral, to operate in the
ordinary course of business without the DIP financing.  The
Debtors' ability to maintain business relationships with their
vendors, suppliers and customers, to pay their employees, and to
fund their operations during these Chapter 11 Cases is essential
to the Debtors' continued viability.  Moreover, the ability of the
Debtors to obtain sufficient working capital and liquidity through
the proposed post-petition financing arrangement with the Lenders
is vital to the preservation and maintenance of the going concern
value of the Debtors.  Accordingly, the Debtors have an immediate
need to obtain the post-petition financing in order to, among
other things, permit the orderly continuation of the operation of
their businesses, minimize the disruption of their business
operations, and preserve and maximize the value of the assets of
the Debtors' bankruptcy estates.

        will be used in accordance with, and solely for the
        purposes set forth in the Budget.

        the Debtor's Chapter 11 Cases and in any successor cases
        under the Bankruptcy Code for all DIP Obligations, having
        priority over any and all other claims against the
        Debtors, except that the Reser's DIP Superpriority Claim

        Further, the Wells DIP Superpriority Claim and the Reser's

     H. Fees: On the effective date of the Reser's Interim DIP
        Order, Reser's will fully earn, and be entitled to receive
        from the Borrowers, a loan commitment fee in the amount of
        $50,000.  The Commitment Fee will be paid by the Reser's

CHRYSLER GROUP: Plans $165MM Expansion of Sterling Heights Plant
----------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that a Michigan
automotive factory once destined for the scrap heap received
another financial boost after Chrysler Group LLC said it will
invest $165 million in its Sterling Heights, Mich., assembly
plant, clearing the way for the production of some new vehicles
the company has not yet named.

                       About Chrysler Group

Chrysler Group LLC, formed in 2009 from a global strategic
alliance with Fiat Group, produces Chrysler, Jeep(R), Dodge, Ram
Truck, Mopar(R) and Global Electric Motorcars (GEM) brand vehicles
and products.  Headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Chrysler
Group LLC's product lineup features some of the world's most
recognizable vehicles, including the Chrysler 300, Jeep Wrangler
and Ram Truck.  Fiat will contribute world-class technology,
platforms and powertrains for small- and medium-sized cars,
allowing Chrysler Group to offer an expanded product line
including environmentally friendly vehicles.

Chrysler LLC and 24 affiliates on April 30, 2009, sought Chapter
11 protection from creditors (Bankr. S.D.N.Y (Mega-case), Lead
Case No. 09-50002).  Chrysler hired Jones Day, as lead counsel;
Togut Segal & Segal LLP, as conflicts counsel; Capstone Advisory
Group LLC, and Greenhill & Co. LLC, for financial advisory
services; and Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC, as its claims agent.
Chrysler has changed its corporate name to Old CarCo following its
sale to a Fiat-owned company.  As of December 31, 2008, Chrysler
had $39,336,000,000 in assets and $55,233,000,000 in debts.
Chrysler had $1.9 billion in cash at that time.

In connection with the bankruptcy filing, Chrysler reached an
agreement with Fiat SpA, the U.S. and Canadian governments and
other key constituents regarding a transaction under Section 363
of the Bankruptcy Code that would effect an alliance between
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% equity interest in Chrysler Group.

The U.S. and Canadian governments provided Chrysler with
$4.5 billion to finance its bankruptcy case.  Those loans are to
be repaid with the proceeds of the bankruptcy estate's
liquidation.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 6, 2011,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B+' corporate
credit rating to Chrysler Group LLC. The rating outlook is stable.
"At the same time, we assigned our issue-level rating to
Chrysler's $4.3 billion senior bank facilities ('BB') and $3.2
billion second-lien notes ('B'). The recovery ratings are '1' and
'5'. The company recently completed this financing," S&P stated.

disclosed that they beneficially own 16,174,400 shares of Class A
common stock of Clearwire Corporation representing 6.5% of the

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 11, 2010,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating, and all other ratings, on Clearwire Corp. to 'CCC' from
'B-'.  At the same time, S&P revised the CreditWatch listing on
the company from negative to developing.  S&P had initially placed
the ratings on CreditWatch with negative implications on Oct. 6,
2010, based on S&P's view that Clearwire faced significant near-
term liquidity risks.

The downgrade follows the Company's disclosure -- in its Form 10-Q
for quarter ended Sept. 30, 2010 -- regarding the uncertainty
about its ability to obtain additional capital and continue as a
going concern.  In Clearwire's 2010 third-quarter earnings report
and conference call, the company indicated that it expected to run
out cash by mid-2011, which is consistent with S&P's earlier
comments.  Cash totaled around $1.4 billion as of Sept. 30, 2010.

price adjustment provisions to the terms of the Senior Notes as
were added to the terms of the Subordinated Notes.  The Majority
Holders of the Senior Notes also consented to the terms of the
Bridge Financing and to granting the investors in that financing
as well as the holders of the Company's Subordinated Notes a
second position security interest in the assets of the Company.
The guaranties that had been issued in 2010 to certain Senior Note
investors by SAIL Venture Partners, L.P., were extended
accordingly.

Pursuant to the agreements amending the Senior Notes and
Subordinated Notes, the exercise price of the warrants that were
issued in connection with the Senior Notes and the Subordinated
Notes will be adjusted to match the Qualified Offering Price, if
that price is lower than the exercise price then in effect. The
Company agreed to issue to each holder of the Senior Notes and
Subordinated Notes, as consideration for the above, warrants to
purchase a number of shares of common stock equal to 30% of the
number of shares of common stock to be received by each holder
upon conversion of their notes at the closing of the Qualified
Offering.  The Consideration Warrants would be issued after the
Qualified Offering and would have the same terms as the
Outstanding Warrants, as amended.

The Amended and Restated Security Agreement, dated as of Sept. 30,
2011, between the Company and Paul Buck, as administrative agent
for the secured parties, which replaces the existing security
agreement from 2010, and the corresponding security interest
terminate:

   (1) with respect to the Senior Notes, if and when holders of a
       majority of the aggregate principal amount of Senior Notes
       issued have converted their notes into shares of common
       stock; and

   (2) with respect to the Subordinated Notes and notes to be
       issued in the Bridge Financing, if and when holders of a
       majority of the aggregate principal amount of Subordinated
       Notes and Bridge Notes (on a combined basis) have converted
       their notes.

On Oct. 12, 2011, the Company received a $250,000 loan from its
director John Pappajohn.  The Company anticipates that the terms
of this loan will be identical to the terms of the Bridge
Financing.

The Subordinated Notes and Senior Notes and related warrants, and
any securities represented by the amendments thereo, were issued
by the Company under the exemption from registration afforded by
Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and
Regulation D promulgated thereunder, as they were issued to
accredited investors, without a view to distribution, and were not
issued through any general solicitation or advertisement.

                      Default Under Term Loan

On May 11, 2006, the Company entered into a Loan Agreement with
Goldman Sachs Commercial Mortgage Capital, L.P.  The Term Loan was
for an initial principal amount of $209.2 million and for an
initial term of two years.  The Company has drawn an additional
$40.8 million against the Term Loan, the maximum funding of the
Term Loan.  Covenants under the Term Loan restrict the Company's
future borrowing capacity.  The loan had an original two-year term
and three, one-year extensions.

Interest on the loan was based on LIBOR plus 2.9% with a minimum
LIBOR rate of 1.5%.  Interest incremented to LIBOR plus 3.5% from
July 2009 through May 2010 and increased to LIBOR plus 4.0% from
June 2010 through May 2011.

As of July 29, 2011, the Company is in default on its Term Loan.
Accordingly, the lender is entitled to exercise various rights,
powers and remedies including acceleration of the Loan,
termination or suspension of all or any portion of advances or
disbursement of funds from restricted cash accounts, accrual of
interest at the default rate and the exercise of remedies under
collateral documents.  The Company is currently in discussions
with its lender to negotiate a restructuring of its debt.  If the
Company is not successful in a restructuring agreement or entering
into a transaction to address its liquidity and capital structure,
the note holders have the ability to demand accelerated repayment
of all amounts under the Term Loan.  The Company would not have
the liquidity to meet this demand.

about its ability to continue as a going concern.

Vegas, Nevada, expressed substantial doubt about Colony Resorts

noted that the Company has incurred recurring net losses and has a
working capital deficiency.

Oct. 13, 2011, in U.S. District Court in Clarksburg, West
Virginia, against company secretary and Bridgeport, W.Va. mayor,
James R. Christie, and company president H. David Cutlip.

According to the suit, Messrs. Christie and Cutlip transferred

Export Finance Co., Inc., Comvest Export Capital, Co., Inc.,
Methane Recovery Solutions, LLC., Lunasol Sounds LLC., Moon and

and shareholders," the report quotes the suit as stating.  Mr.
Sheehan claimed that numerous transfers were made to these

D.C. DEVELOPMENT: Financial Woes Cue Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Filing
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Hanah Cho at the Baltimore Sun reports that DC Development LLC
filed on Oct. 16, 2011, for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Greenbelt, Maryland, while they try
to resolve financial difficulties related to another business.

DC Development LLC owns Wisp Resort in Garrett County, which is a
ski resort near Deep Creek Lake.

Ms. Cho says the company has been unable to renegotiate the
repayment of a $28.5 million loan with BB&T Corp.  The loan was
tied to the construction of an 18-hole golf course and community
called Lodestone Golf Club.  The golf club property, which is near
the ski resort, has experienced lackluster sales of home sites,
she notes.

According to Baltimore Sun, DC Development said Chapter 11
protection would allow it to work out its loan restructuring and
provide "breathing room needed to continue to seek new investors
for the companies."

Ms. Cho relates that the owners had been considering options
including refinancing and finding additional investors. Selling
the ski property would be the last resort.

The report says Karen Myers, one of the three partners in Wisp
Resort, said in August that the resort was a "very healthy,
vibrant, profitable business," but that the real estate business
had been struggling.

DECORATOR INDUSTRIES: Final Cash Collateral Hearing on Oct. 25
--------------------------------------------------------------
Decorator Industries, Inc., will return to the Bankruptcy Court on
Oct. 25, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. for a final hearing on its request to
use cash collateral securing obligations to its prepetition
lender.

The Debtor is indebted to Crestmark Bank under a revolving credit
facility pursuant to the terms of (i) a Promissory Note executed
by the Debtor in favor of Crestmark dated April 20, 2010, in the
original principal amount of $2,000,000, and (ii) a Loan Security
Agreement dated April 20, 2010.  As of the Petition Date, the
unpaid balance on the Note is $1,063,663.  Any cash or cash
equivalents, funds or proceeds of or derived from certain of the
collateral securing the obligations of the Debtor may constitute
cash collateral within the meaning of Section 363 of the
Bankruptcy Code.

In its request, Decorator Industries said an immediate and
critical need exists for the Debtor to be permitted access to Cash
Collateral to continue to operate its business, pay its payroll
and other ordinary and necessary operating expenses, maintain
hundreds of jobs and preserve its ongoing, enterprise value.

On Oct. 6, the Debtor won interim authority to use cash collateral
and provide replacement lien to its lender on all of the Debtor's
property, subject and junior to (a) all unpaid fees due to the
Office of the United States Trustee pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec.
1930; and (b) all unpaid fees required to be paid to the Clerk of
the Bankruptcy Court.  However, the lender will not have or be
granted a Replacement Lien on or against any claims or causes of
action arising under Sections 542 through 550 of the Bankruptcy
Code or on or against the proceeds of the Avoidance Actions.

The Debtor proposes to use the Cash Collateral strictly in
accordance with the terms of a budget prepared by the Debtor. The
Budget covers the four-week period from Oct. 2 through Oct. 29,
2011.  According to the budget, the Debtor started the period with
$750,000 cash.  Through projected collections, the Debtor expects
to end the period with $959,678 cash, after expenses.  The Debtor
also expects accounts receivables, thus ending the four-week
period with $2.3 million in cash and accounts receivable.

Debtor in the amount of $15,000.  On Nov. 23, 2010, Genovese
received a further retainer from the Debtor in the amount of
$100,000.  The retainers were used to pay for Genovese's
prepetition invoices.

On Oct. 3, 2011, Genovese received a new retainer from the Debtor
in the amount of $100,000.  Prior to the filing of the bankruptcy
case, Genovese transferred an amount equal to $19,527 from the
Retainer to Genovese's operating account to pay the accrued fees
and expenses incurred by GJB during the month of September 2011.
As a result, Genovese had a net Retainer for the Chapter 11 case
in the amount of $80,472.  As of the Petition Date, the Chapter 11
Retainer has been transferred to the attorneys' trust account of
Genovese.

Mr. Battista attests that shareholders, counsel and associates of
Genovese: (a) do not have any connection with the Debtor, its
affiliates, its creditors, the U.S. Trustee, any person employed
in the office of the U.S. Trustee, or any other party in interest,
or its attorneys and accountants; (b) are disinterested persons,
as that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code;
and (c) do not hold or represent any interest adverse to the
Debtor?s estate.

Ratings Rationale

The upgrade reflects the company's moderate debt-to-EBITDA
leverage (including Moody's standard adjustments) and solid free
cash flow generation, the settlement of ongoing litigation with
TiVo at much better terms than expected, lower than expected
subscriber losses despite losing major telco partnerships to
DIRECTV, and the potential to develop a long-term solution to
provide wireless broadband to its video customers.

"With all cable companies offering triple play products and
DIRECTV having the ability to do so as well across 90% of the
country through its partnership agreements with large telco
companies, we believe that DISH is in the midst of planning a long
term strategy to provide wireless broadband to its customers to
remain competitive with the popular triple-play product offering
by the cable TV and telco industries. In our view, the company's
purchase of a significant amount of wireless spectrum is an
important strategic step which is factored into the rating. While
it is unclear whether management will use the spectrum to build
out its own wireless network and in what manner and timeframe it
will do so, we believe that from a credit perspective, its recent
acquisitions have been a better use of free cash flow than doing
stock buybacks and dividends, particularly given the expected
scarcity of spectrum that is looming over the intermediate-to-
long-term," Moody's says.

"We expect the company to invest in a broadband strategy over the
intermediate term and believe that given its strong credit metrics
for a Ba2 rating category, it has sufficient flexibility via its
free cash flows and balance sheet capacity to make measured
investments and raise incremental debt for such investments,"
stated Neil Begley, a Moody's Senior Vice President.

DISH's Ba2 CFR is three notches below that of its direct
competitor, DIRECTV (Baa2 senior unsecured), which continues to be
driven by DISH's underperformance in customer acquisition and
retention, the lack of visibility into its strategic direction and
financial policy, the loss of large telco partnerships to DIRECTV,
its controlling shareholder structure and moderately higher
leverage relative to DIRECTV. The company has consistently lagged
in marketing, promotions and customer service, and in our view,
has been too thrifty in its investments in programming to keep its
product offering competitive, Moody's notes. "We expect DISH to
experience escalating subscriber acquisition costs as it steps up
its advertising and promotional efforts to stem subscriber losses
and reverse to subscriber growth. In our view, this, along with
increasing programming expenses, will gradually pressure margins
and impact the company's ability to materially improve its cash
flow generation," Moody's relates.

"DISH's Ba2 CFR continues to primarily reflect our concern that
competition from cable and telecommunication companies, who offer
multiple products (video, voice, and data), will pressure margins
and cash flow generation as the costs to grow and retain
subscribers will continue to escalate. Mitigating our concerns are
the company's very strong credit metrics for a company of this
scale in the Ba-rating category, its significant cash and
marketable securities balance and its large subscriber base. In
addition, lack of transparency on fiscal policies and financial
guidance from the company's management and flexible indenture
covenants also moderately constrain the CFR. The rating also
reflects the company's controlling shareholder structure which
drives the lack of transparency, although clearly, the controlling
shareholder and Chairman, Charles Ergen, has had a positive impact
on the company as it has maintained strong liquidity and credit
metrics," Moody's says. "The company has recently been
particularly acquisitive and in the absence of guidance on their
strategic direction and use of acquired assets, there is elevated
event risk with respect to additional acquisitions of a material
size and a potential build out of its own wireless broadband
network which would require heavy investments over a prolonged
period," added Mr. Begley.

DISH's SGL-1 liquidity rating reflects the company's robust
unrestricted cash and marketable securities balance of $4.6
billion (approximately $2.0 billion after accounting for remaining
payments for recent acquisitions and $1 billion of notes which
matured in October 2011) and expected strong free cash flow
generation of over $1 billion in 2011. The company has no further
debt maturities until October, 2013. Although DISH does not have a
revolving bank facility to provide external funding sources should
the company experience a dramatic reduction in operating cash
flow, this concern is mitigated with our estimation that the
company will typically maintain over $1 billion of cash and
marketable securities on the balance sheet, according to Moody's.
Dish's portfolio of wireless spectrum will also provide a source
of alternative liquidity.

"The company's current credit metrics are very strong for its Ba2
credit rating. However, the stable outlook reflects the
uncertainty surrounding DISH's strategic direction and investment
beyond its core video business, balanced by our expectation that
DISH will maintain its strong credit metrics, a sizeable
subscriber base and solid liquidity. We expect DISH to continue to
invest in its customer acquisition efforts in the near term,
including pricing positioning and expanding its video offering
with its purchase of the Blockbuster assets, as well as invest in
a longer term strategy to provide wireless broadband to its video
customers, through its acquisitions of wireless spectrum," says
Moody's.

Downward rating pressure would occur if DISH were to sustain debt-
to-EBITDA leverage (incorporating Moody's standard adjustments)
over 3.5 times. Sustained use of cash for shareholder rewards or
strategic ventures with negative implications for DISH's credit
profile, material subscriber losses, multiple satellite failures
that cannot be mitigated with backup transponders or capacity
constraints that affect the company's ability to provide a
competitive service could also have negative rating implications.

Upward rating pressure could occur if Moody's believed that
present subscriber levels can be maintained in combination with
stable churn rates and retention costs, and leverage can be
sustained under 3.0x debt-to-EBITDA including flexibility to fund
its strategic plans. Also important would be the development of a
broadband strategy which is sufficiently competitive to maintain
its subscriber base, in a market that is growing its dependence
upon Internet access capability, through measured investment
levels as well as with strategic partners .

Please see ratings tab on the issuer/entity page on Moodys.com for
the last credit rating action and the rating history.

DISH's ratings were assigned by evaluating factors that Moody's
considers relevant to the credit profile of the issuer, such as
the company's (i) business risk and competitive position compared
with others within the industry; (ii) capital structure and
financial risk; (iii) projected performance over the near to
intermediate term; and (iv) management's track record and
tolerance for risk. Moody's compared these attributes against
other issuers both within and outside DISH's core industry and
believes DISH's ratings are comparable to those of other issuers
with similar credit risk. Other methodologies used include Loss
Given Default for Speculative Grade Issuers in the US, Canada, and
EMEA, published June 2009. Please see the Credit Policy page on
www.moodys.com for a copy of this methodology.

DISH Network Corporation is the third largest pay television
provider in the United States with 14.06 million subscribers as of
6/30/2011. Revenue for the LTM period ending 6/30/2011 was $13.3
billion.

DYNAMIC BUILDERS: Files Copies of Plan Implementation Documents
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dynamic Builders Inc. has filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Central District of California copies of several plan
implementation documents, including a collateral agent and
intercreditor agreement, a credit agreement, a security agreement,
and an example form for the deed of trust, security, agreement and
fixture filing.  A copy of the documents is available at:

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

As reported in the TCR on Sept. 15, 2011, Dynamic Builders Inc.
asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of California, for
an order authorizing non-material modifications to its second
amended Chapter 11 plan of reorganization.

Subsequent to the Court's approval of the Disclosure Statement and
dissemination of plan packages to all creditors, Dynamic has
continued to work with the Lenders to ensure that the Plan
addresses and contemplates alternative scenarios for the
disposition of Dynamic's real property assets.  As a result of
these discussions, the parties have agreed that certain
clarifications are appropriate to ensure that the liquidation
process is orderly and consistent with all applicable laws.

The proposed clarifications (i) confirm specific terms of the
creditors' lien to be created post-confirmation for the benefit of
all unsecured creditors, (ii) provide further defined terms, (iii)
confirm the scope of the Court's retained jurisdiction regarding
Plan administration, and (iv) detail the revised BofA claim and
payment terms agreed to by the parties.

The Debtor believes that the modifications are immaterial, and not
a violation of U.S.C. Section 1127(a).

EASTMAN KODAK: Bondholders Aiming to Profit From Bankruptcy Sale
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that investors acquired second-lien debt of Eastman Kodak
Co., aiming for the maker of imaging products to file for
bankruptcy.  Second-lien debt holders want intellectual property
sold, with assets distributed to creditors before the proceeds are
eroded through operating losses.  The $250 million in 7.25% senior
unsecured notes due November 2013 traded Oct. 11 at 47 cents on
the dollar, according to Trace, the bond-price reporting system
of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. As recently as
Sept. 27, they fetched 63 cents.

                          Default Likely

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 30, 2011,
Moody's Investors Service and Fitch Ratings downgraded Kodak's
ratings deeper into junk territory.  Fitch said its 'CC' rating
signifies that default of some kind appears probable.

Moody's said it lowered Kodak's ratings, including the corporate
family and probability of default to Caa2 from Caa1, the senior
unsecured to Caa3 from Caa2, the senior secured to B3 from B1 and
the Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-3 frm SGL-2. The
outlook remains negative.  The rating downgrade reflects Moody's
expectations that "ongoing weakness in the company's core business
operations in addition to a softening demand environment will
pressure operating performance and liquidity over the foreseeable
future," said Moody's senior vice president, Richard Lane.

Moody's and Fitch said Kodak's decision on Sept. 23, 2011, to draw
down $160 million from its $400 million secured revolving credit
facility signals weaker cash flow prospects.  Moody's noted the
the draw was just prior to what is usually Kodak's strongest cash
flow quarter (the 4th quarter).  Although Kodak had $957 million
of cash balances at June 30, 2011 and no material debt maturities
until November 2013, "we anticipate that Kodak will consume cash
over the next year, thus weakening its liquidity profile," said
Moody's Mr. Lane.

Fitch downgraded Kodak's ratings -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to
'CC' from 'CCC'; Senior secured revolving credit facility (RCF) to
'B/RR1' from 'B+/RR1'; Senior secured second priority debt to 'B-
/RR1' from 'B+/RR1'; and Senior unsecured debt to 'C/RR5' from
'CC/RR5'.  Fitch's actions affect approximately $1.5 billion in
total debt.  Fitch believes a weak macro-environment, insufficient
scale in the company's key growth initiatives, continued secular
decline in traditional film and moderating, but still elevated
component costs, will adversely affect the company's seasonally
strong second-half, resulting in cash flows below historical
levels.

Fitch said potential proceeds from the sale of a portion of the
company's patent portfolio in the absence of an improvement in
free cash flow will not materially improve the company's credit
profile.  Fitch also added that Kodak's enterprise value would be
maximized in liquidation, rather than a going-concern scenario.

Headquartered in Rochester, New York, Eastman Kodak Company
(NYSE:EK) -- http://www.kodak.com/-- provides imaging technology
products and services to the photographic and graphic

in total assets, $6.75 billion in total liabilities and a $1.42
billion total deficit.

Kodak has hired Jones as legal adviser and investment bank Lazard
Ltd., but denied rumors it is filing for bankruptcy.  Kodak is
exploring a sale of its patents.


EL PASO: Fitch Puts 'BB+ Issuer Default Rating on Watch Negative
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has placed the ratings of El Paso Corp. (EP) on
Negative Ratings Watch following the announcement of its
acquisition by Kinder Morgan Inc. (KMI; parent company to Fitch
rated entity Kinder Morgan Kansas, Inc. [KMK] Issuer Default
Rating [IDR]: 'BB+').  Concurrently, Fitch has affirmed its
ratings on Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co. (TGP) and El Paso Natural
Gas Pipeline Co. (EPNG) and revised their Outlooks to Stable from
Positive.  In addition, Fitch has affirmed the ratings and
Outlooks of El Paso Pipeline Partners Operating Company (EPBO),
Colorado Interstate Gas Co. (CIG), and El Paso Natural Gas Company
(EPNG) and the ratings and Outlook Evolving on El Paso Exploration
and Production (EPEP).  Roughly $13 billion in debt is affected by
these ratings actions.

Transactional Risk at EP: EP's Rating Watch Negative reflects the
transaction risk associated with its purchase by KMI and the
contemplated asset sales.  Fitch's Negative Watch is linked to
that of KMK which was placed on Rating Watch Negative due to the
transactional risk associated with the purchase of EP and planned
asset sales and dropdowns that are essential to the timely paydown
of acquisition debt, including EP debt.  KMI has announced its
intention to pay down EP's debt with proceeds from drop-down
transactions of pipeline assets to EPBO and Kinder Morgan
Partners, L.P. (KMP; Fitch IDR of 'BBB').  While the sale of the
higher volatility E&P business and paydown of EP debt represents a
longer term positive for the rating, Fitch would note that
execution of the asset sale, as well as the debt paydown and other
details of the transaction, remain uncertain at this time.  Fitch
will resolve its Ratings Watch for EP as the transaction gets
closer to completion and more information surrounding the details
of the final capital structure are known.  The transaction is
expected to close by the second quarter of 2012.

Stable Pipelines: Fitch's affirmation of TPG and EPNG is
reflective of the cash flow stability and low relative business
risk profile of these interstate pipeline franchises and Fitch's
expectations that the pipeline credit profiles will not be
affected by the transaction.  The revision in Outlook to Stable
reflects the linkage TPG and EPNG have to EP given their
significant operating and financial affiliations and their pledge
as collateral to EP's revolver.  While Fitch believes that TPG and
EPNG would continue to maintain their investment grade ratings
should there be a negative rating action on EP, linkage would
likely not widen to more than two notches.

EPBO Ratings Affirmed: Over the near term EPBO will be unaffected
by KMI's acquisition of EP.  The ratings and Stable Outlook on
EPBO reflect EPBO's consistent earnings and cash flows from its
generally low business risk pipeline assets.  Fitch believes that
EPBO will continue to possess investment grade credit metrics and
business risk profile even as dropdowns at EPBO are accelerated to
help pay down debt associated with the merger.  Fitch expects any
dropdowns to EPBO be financed with a balance of debt and equity
consistent with past practices and investment grade credit
metrics.  The Positive Outlook on CIG and SNG is reflective of the
strong standalone credit profiles of the pipeline entities and the
parent/subsidiary rating linkage that the entities have with EPBO.
Following the completion of the transaction Fitch will reexamine
the linkage CIG and SNG's ratings have with those of EPBO.

EPEP Watch Evolving: The Evolving Rating Watch and ratings on EPEP
largely reflect its operating and financial ties with EP and the
uncertainty now surrounding the planned sale of the EPEP business.
Fitch expects that any revolver borrowings will be paid off and
the revolver will be extinguished as the EPEP business is sold,
and will withdraw its ratings at that time.

Fitch has placed the following ratings on Rating Watch Negative:

El Paso Corporation

  -- IDR at 'BB+';
  -- $1.25 billion senior secured revolving credit facility (2012)
     at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured notes and debentures at 'BB+'.

El Paso Energy Capital Trust I

  -- Trust convertible preferred securities at 'BB-'.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings with a Stable Outlook:

El Paso Natural Gas Company (EPNG)

  -- IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BBB-'.

Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (TGP)

  -- IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BBB-'.

El Paso Pipeline Partners Operating Company (EPBO)

  -- IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BBB-'.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings with a Positive Outlook:

Colorado Interstate Gas Company (CIG)

  -- IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BBB-'.

Southern Natural Gas Company (SNG)

  -- IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BBB-'.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings with an Evolving Outlook:

El Paso Exploration & Production Company (EPEP)

  -- IDR at 'BB+';
  -- Senior secured revolving credit facility (2012) at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BB+'.

EMPRESAS BASTARD: Sec. 341 Creditors' Meeting Set for Nov. 18
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee in Puerto Rico will convene a meeting of
creditors in the bankruptcy case of Empresas Bastard Incorporado
on Nov. 18, 2011, at 9:00 a.m. at 341 Meeting Room, Ochoa
Building, 500 Tanca Street, First Floor, in San Juan.

This is the first meeting of creditors required under Section
341(a) of the Bankruptcy Code in all bankruptcy cases.

All creditors are invited, but not required, to attend.  This
Meeting of Creditors offers the one opportunity in a bankruptcy
proceeding for creditors to question a responsible office of the
Debtor under oath about the company's financial affairs and
operations that would be of interest to the general body of
creditors.

Proofs of claim are due by Feb. 16, 2012.  Government proofs of
claim are due by April 9, 2012.

Empresas Bastard Incorporado, based in San Juan, Puerto Rico,
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. P.R. Case No. 11-08736)
on Oct. 8, 2011.  Robert Millan, Esq. -- rmi3183180@aol.com -- at
Millan Law Offices, represents the Debtor.  In its petition, the
Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million in assets and debts.
The petition was signed by Antonio Bastard Rodriguez, president.


ENERGY TRANSFER: Fitch Affirms Issuer Default Rating at 'BB-'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) for
Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (ETP) and Energy Transfer Equity,
L.P. (ETE) at 'BBB-' with a Negative Outlook and 'BB-' with a
Stable Outlook, respectively.  The rating actions follow ETP's
announcement that it has agreed to contribute its propane
operations to AmeriGas Partners, L.P. (APU).  The ratings also
incorporate the financial implications of ETE's proposed
acquisition of Southern Union Company (SUG; IDR 'BBB-' on Rating
Watch Negative).

Approximately $8.35 billion of outstanding ETE and ETP long-term
debt is affected by today's action.

Rating Rationale: The affirmations reflect Fitch's expectation
that both ETE and ETP will maintain overall credit profiles
consistent with their current ratings as they manage through
several large transactions.  ETP's Negative Outlook considers the
transactional risk associated with its participation in the SUG
acquisition through its agreement to purchase Citrus Corp. and its
other financial commitments.  Even factoring the benefits
associated with the propane transaction, leverage through 2012 is
expected to remain high.

Transaction Overview: APU will acquire ETP's propane distribution
operations for $2.891 billion, including the assumption of $71
million of Heritage Operating, L.P. debt. ETP will receive $1.5
billion in cash and the remainder of the purchase price in APU
common units.  The purchase price is approximately 10 times (x)
EBITDA. The propane transaction is not conditioned on the ETE's
purchase of SUG and is targeted to close before the end of 2011.

Improved Leverage Metrics: ETP expects to use the cash proceeds to
reduce debt.  However, ETP will continue to have significant
future financing obligations related to its aggressive growth
strategy, including capital contributions to joint ventures and
the anticipated dropdown of Citrus Corp. as part of ETE's purchase
of SUG.  On balance Fitch expects that ETP's 2012 debt to EBITDA
will strengthen as a result of the propane sale but likely remain
over 4.0x.

Lower Business Risk: The propane transaction which generated
approximately 15% of EBITDA will make ETP a purer natural gas/
natural gas liquids operator.  As a result, a higher percentage of
revenues will be attributable to fee-based operations supported by
long term contracts, and sensitivity to weather and commodity
prices will be reduced.

ETE currently owns 50.2 million ETP limited partner (LP) units and
ETP's 1.6% general partner (GP) interest and 26.3 million Regency
Energy Partners LP (RGNC) LP units and RGNC's 1.9% GP interest.
ETE's investment in RGNC was completed on May 26, 2010.

Fitch affirms the following ratings with a Stable Outlook:

Energy Transfer Equity, L.P.

  -- IDR at 'BB-';
  -- Senior secured revolving credit facility at 'BB';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BB'.

Fitch affirms the following ratings with a Negative Outlook:

Energy Transfer Partners, L.P.

  -- IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BBB-'.


FARMINGTON AMERICAN: Files for Ch. 11 Bankruptcy to Sell Building
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Laura Adelmann at ThisweekLive reports that the Farmington
American Legion Clifford Larson Post 189 has filed Chapter 11
bankruptcy and put its building for sale.

Ms. Adelmann says the Company estimated assets of up to $50,000
and debts of $500,000 to $1 million.

According to the report, American Legion house committee secretary
John Blowers said Highland Bank loaned the organization about
$800,000 for repairs not covered by insurance after a 2008 fire.
Although the club has paid off about $50,000 of the loan and is
current on its payments, it was late filing financial documents,
and so the bank has called the loan due.  The report says the bank
notified them in June that it would take possession of the
American Legion building and close it down if the organization
didn't repay the loan in full Oct. 17, 2011.

Ms. Adelmann notes, in an emergency meeting on Oct. 12, 2011,
American Legion leaders agreed to seek Chapter 11 protection.
Seven of the members paid the $10,000 legal fees to do so.

Mr. Blowers said Chapter 11 allows the club time for financial
reorganization while keeping the club open and operational.
He said employees will continue to be paid and the club will

FIRST FOLIAGE: Jorge Costales OK'd to Audit '09-'10 401(k) Plan
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Laurel M. Isicoff of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Florida authorized First Foliage, L.C., to
employ Jorge Costales, C.P.A., as auditor of the First Foliage
Retirement Plan & Trust administered by Principal Life Insurance
Company, a member of Principal Financial Group.

Mr. Costales is auditing the 401(k) Plan for the periods ending
Sept. 30, 2009, and Sept. 30, 2010.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 26, 2011, the
Debtor told the Court that it is required to audit the 401(k)
plan and to submit the annual return/ report of employee benefit
plan to the Employee Benefits Security Administration fka Pension
and Welfare Benefits Administration, a division of the United
State Department of Labor, in order to terminate and close the
plan.

The Debtor said the plan has about $5,100 available to pay
expenses associated with the auditing services to be rendered by
the firm.

The Court ordered that:

   -- Principal Life Insurance Company, a member of Principal
   Financial Group is authorized and directed to make immediate
   payment in the amount of $4,000 to Mr. Costales, in advance,
   from the 401(k) Plan Funds;

   -- Mr. Costales will not be required to file applications for
   compensation and reimbursement of expenses for the auditing
   services to be rendered and will not be subject to the
   procedures in connection with the compensation of professionals
   retained by the Debtor.

   -- the Debtor is authorized to take all actions necessary with
   respect to the termination and closure of the 401(k) Plan and
   effectuate the relief granted.

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

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Claire Shefchik at ThirdAge.com reports that a grand jury indicted
on Oct. 12, 2011, Dr. Ralph Conti in an embryonic stem cell case,

GLOBAL CASINOS: Posts $1.4 Million Net Loss in Fiscal 2011
----------------------------------------------------------
Global Casinos, Inc., filed on Oct. 13, 2011, its annual report on
Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, reporting a net
loss of $1.4 million on $5.5 million of revenues for the fiscal
year ended June 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of $1.1 million
on $6.0 million of revenues for the fiscal year ended June 30,
2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed $3.5 million
in total asses, $1.8 million in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $1.7 million.

"All of our assets have been pledged as security for the repayment
of debt in the approximate amount of $1.3 million," the Company
said in the filing.  "If we are unable to pay any of the debt, our
assets would be subject to foreclosure by the creditor.  Should
foreclosure occur, it is likely that we would be forced to
discontinue operations and our interest in the assets could be
forfeited.  These debts are currently due and we do not have the
resources to retire the obligations.  If the debt holders demand
payment we could be forced to seek bankruptcy protection or be
forced to liquidate the assets to satisfy the debts."

GRACEWAY PHARMA: Asks Bankruptcy Court to Value Canadian Assets
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that Graceway
Pharmaceuticals LLC, which just won approval to auction off its
U.S. and Canadian assets, is now asking a bankruptcy court for
help dividing at least $275 million in sale proceeds on both sides
of the border.

                  About Graceway Pharmaceuticals

Based in Bristol, Tennessee, Graceway Pharmaceuticals LLC offers
dermatology, respiratory, and women's health products. Its Zyclara
Cream is used for the treatment of external genital and perianal
warts (EGW) in patients 12 years of age and older. The company
offers products for the treatment of dermatology conditions, such
as actinic keratosis, superficial basal cell carcinoma, external
genital warts, atopic dermatitis, and acne; and respiratory
conditions, such as asthma.

Graceway Pharmaceuticals and its affiliates filed Chapter 11
bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 11-13036) on
Sept. 29, 2011.

Graceway intends to sell essentially all of its assets pursuant to

been selected as a stalking horse bidder, but the final buyer will
be determined through an auction process and, ultimately, by the
Bankruptcy Court over the course of the next few months.

The company's debt includes $430.7 million owing on a first-lien
revolving credit and term loan.  Second-lien debt is $330 million,
with mezzanine debt totaling another $81.4 million.

The company said the sale has the consent of holders of 40% of the
first-lien debt, which means the sale could be opposed by holders
of 60% of the senior debt.

Attorneys at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor LLP serve as counsel
to the Debtors.  Latham & Watkins LLP is the co-counsel.  Lazard
Freres & Co. LLC is the investment banker.  PricewaterhouseCoopers
LLP is the tax consultant.  BMC Group, Inc is the notice, claims,

GSC GROUP: Amends Plan and Disclosure Statement
-----------------------------------------------
The Chapter 11 trustee of GSC Group, Inc., et al., filed an
amended Chapter 11 Plan and Disclosure Statement dated Oct. 4,
2011, to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of
New York.

Under the Amended Disclosure Statement, these disclosures were
noted:

* The Plan does not provide for the reorganization or
   dissolution of GSC Secondary Interest Fund, LLC.  The
   Designated Purchaser acquired GSC Group's equity interests in
   SIF in connection with the sale process.  The Chapter 11
   Trustee does not believe that there are any pending
   prepetition Claims against SIF.  The Trustee intends to file a
   motion seeking the dismissal of SIF's Chapter 11 Case.

* The estimated recovery for Holders of General Unsecured Claims
   is based on a number of assumptions and estimates.  Although
   the Chapter 11 Trustee believes these assumptions and
   estimates are reasonable, there can be no assurance that
   recoveries will not be higher or lower than the estimated
   recovery of between 42-84%.

* The Chapter 11 Trustee presently anticipates appointing Robert
   Manzo of Capstone as Liquidating Trustee.  The Liquidating
   Trust will terminate five years from the Effective Date.

* The Liquidating Trustee will be vested with significant
   discretion to take actions to maximize the total value that
   can be distributed to Holders of Trust Units.  The Chapter 11
   Trustee anticipates that a significant amount of cash will be
   made available to the Liquidating Trust on the Effective Date.

* On the Effective Date, the Debtors will cease all operations
   and administration of the Plan will become the general
   responsibility of the Liquidating Trustee.  The Chapter 11
   Trustee will be relieved of his duties and obligations to the
   estate under the Bankruptcy Code, Bankruptcy Rules and Local
   Bankruptcy Rules.

* The U.S. Trustee has raised informally with the Chapter 11
   Trustee certain objections to the various provisions in the
   Disclosure Statement and Plan, including those provisions
   providing for releases, injunctions, exculpation and
   limitations of liability.  The Chapter 11 Trustee and the U.S.
   Trustee have agreed that consideration of the U.S. Trustee's
   informal objections to these provisions will be deferred to
   confirmation of the Plan rather than adjudicated in terms of
   the adequacy of information in the Disclosure Statement.

A full-text copy of the Amended Disclosure Statement is available
for free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/GSCGRP_AmnddDSOct4.PDF

As noted in the Sept. 1, 2011 edition of the Troubled Company
Reporter, the Chapter 11 trustee for GSC Group Inc. completed the
sale of business on July 26 and filed a liquidating Chapter 11
plan and explanatory disclosure statement in late August.  The
confirmation hearing for approval of the plan is tentatively set
for Nov. 18.

The disclosure statement says that unsecured creditors with claims
aggregating between $12 million and $15 million should recover
about 84%.  Bloomberg relayed that the bankruptcy court authorized
the trustee to sell the business to Black Diamond Capital Finance
LLC, as agent for the secured lenders.  The sale took care of
secured claims.  A minority group of secured lenders filed an
appeal from the order allowing the sale.  The appeal remains
outstanding, the disclosure statement noted.  Through a suit in
state court, the minority lenders failed to halt Black Diamond
from completing the
sale.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Arthur Gonzalez, according to Bloomberg,
previously said that the trustee's plan was the "only plausible
exit strategy."  The price paid by the lenders' agent was designed
for full payment on $256.8 million in secured claims, with $18.6
million cash left over.  Black Diamond as agent bought most assets
with a $224 million credit bid, a $6.7 million note,
$5 million cash, and debt assumption.

The Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 19, 2011, has also relayed
that Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reported that Black
Diamond Capital Management LLC has introduced a rival plan in the
bankruptcy case of GSC Group Inc., giving creditors currently
considering a Chapter 11 proposal from the former investment-
management firm's trustee another potential route out of
bankruptcy to mull.

of unsecured creditors has been appointed in the Chapter 11 Cases.


GUAM WATERWORKS: Fitch Affirms Rating on $212 Mil. Bonds at 'BB'
----------------------------------------------------------------
As part of its continuous surveillance effort, Fitch Ratings
affirms the following rating on Guam Waterworks Authority (GWA):

  -- $212 million in outstanding water and wastewater revenue
     bonds at 'BB'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The bonds are senior lien bonds secured by GWA's net system
revenues.

Recent Financial Results Favorable: GWA's financial performance,
while historically weak, has improved as a result of actions by
GWA's ratemaking bodies.  Further gains are projected for fiscal
2012.

Elevated Debt and Capital Pressures: Debt levels are high and
significant capital needs remain to meet ongoing regulatory
requirements and expected military build-up demands.  This concern
is alleviated somewhat with the nation of Japan recently approving
funding in support of relocation of troops from Okinawa to Guam.

Political Willingness to Raise Rates: GWA has raised rates
significantly over the last several years to high levels in order
to support its capital improvement program (CIP).  Additional
required rate hikes will further pressure customers and could test
the political willingness to raise rates both by the Consolidated
Commission on Utilities (CCU, GWA's governing body), the Public
Utility Commission (PUC), and Guam government.

Leadership Actions Positive: Management has made substantial
progress to date in addressing remedial actions and improving
operating performance.

Limited Economic Profile: The service territory is isolated and
limited and has had a historical disposition to natural disasters.

Positive Financials: Establishment of a trend of positive
financial results would be viewed favorably.

Further Clarity on Military Build-Up: Execution of a service
agreement with the Department of Defense (DOD) that would allow
for pass-through repayment of the Japanese loan to GWA would
assist GWA with meeting secondary conversion requirements.

Resolution of Regulatory Spending Needs: Favorable finalization of
the expected consent decree between GWA and the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency's (EPA) would provide greater certainty in GWA's
capital planning.

Historically, the system has been plagued with weak financial
performance and violations of the federal Clean Water Act (CWA)
and Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which necessitated involvement
at the federal regulatory level.  However, since 2002 when GWA's
governance was changed from an appointed board to an elected
governing board, significant strides have been made towards
returning the system to regulatory compliance and ensuring stable
operations.  Nevertheless, significant challenges persist which
will pressure utility operations over the long term.

Senior lien annual debt service (ADS) coverage improved to a sound
1.6 times (x) in fiscal 2010 after falling below 1.0x on a cash
basis in fiscals 2008 and 2009.  Liquidity also increased in
fiscal 2010 to 118 days cash, more than doubling results from the
prior two years.  The financial gains in fiscal 2010 were
attributable largely to a double-digit rate hike approved for the
year by the CCU and the PUC.

Fiscal 2011 financial performance is expected to be weaker than
fiscal 2010 but should still be favorable, with GWA projecting
senior lien ADS coverage at 1.3x-1.35x after year-end adjustments
are made.  The lower coverage in fiscal 2011 is the result of
declining usage and certain expenses (including the initial
purchase of system general property insurance), which offset an 8%
rate hike for the year.  To boost coverage, the CCU and PUC
recently approved a 13% base rate hike for fiscal 2012. As a
result, GWA's adopted budget forecasts senior lien ADS coverage
climbing to GWA's senior lien ADS target of 1.75x.

Overall, the CCU and PUC have demonstrated a commitment to raising
rates over the last several years to enhance system financial
performance, approving cumulative increases of over 70% since
fiscal 2006.  While residential charges are currently high at an
estimated 2.4% of median household income, GWA's ratemaking
bodies' continued commitment to necessary rate hikes should lead
to continued favorable financial results.

GWA faces significant capital needs to meet regulatory
requirements.  In 2003 GWA negotiated a stipulated order (SO) with
the EPA as a result of violations to the CWA and SDWA.  To date,
GWA has completed close to 90% of the deliverables associated with
the SO and remaining items are addressed in the fiscal 2011-2015
CIP. However, to cure system-wide deficiencies and ensure ongoing
regulatory compliance, a new consent decree between GWA and EPA is
expected to be forthcoming over the next several months.

At present, GWA estimates these additional requirements proposed
for inclusion in a new consent decree would add $200 million-$300
million to GWA's capital program.  This could effectively double
GWA's current five-year CIP depending on the pace the improvements
are required; GWA' fiscal 2011-2015 CIP currently totals $236
million. While still uncertain, much if not all of these proposed
additional capital requirements may ultimately be funded by the
DOD as part of an immense military troop build-up that is
scheduled to occur on the island over the next several years.

The DOD build-up is expected to ultimately increase the island's
permanent population by around 32,000 people (approximately a 20%
increase from the current level) as part of its relocation of
troops from the nation of Japan.  This will necessitate
significant additional capital investment that currently is not
included in GWA's CIP.  GWA and the DOD have been working together
to identify system needs and funding resources to service this
population influx. To facilitate the relocation of troops, Japan
has passed legislation approving a $420 million loan to GWA that
will assist with GWA's expansion needs and also provide for
upgrades to GWA's two major wastewater treatment plants, the main
component of EPA's proposed additional consent decree projects.
However, before these monies may be obtained, GWA must execute a
customer service agreement with DOD that will support the loan,
which could prove difficult in light of the nation's current
budget reduction debate.


HOVNANIAN ENTERPRISES Extends, Sweetens Debt Exchange Terms
-----------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that after its debt
exchange offer received a weak response, builder Hovnanian
Enterprises Inc. sweetened its offer to holders of bonds maturing
in 2014 and 2015.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 17, 2011,
Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., said that in connection with its
previously announced private exchange offers and consent
solicitation, it has extended the Early Tender and Consent Time
from 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Oct. 12, 2011, to 5:00
p.m., New York City time, on Oct. 17, 2011.  The Company also
announced that the Withdrawal and Revocation Deadline expired at
5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Oct. 12, 2011.  As a result of
the extension of the Early Tender and Consent Time, holders of
Senior Notes that properly tender their Senior Notes prior to or
on the extended Early Tender and Consent Time, and whose Senior
Notes are accepted for exchange will receive the Total
Consideration.  Holders of Senior Notes who properly tender their
Senior Notes after the Early Tender and Consent Time and on or
before the Expiration Time, and whose Senior Notes are accepted
for exchange will receive the Exchange Consideration.  In
addition, accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including,
the settlement date will be paid in cash on all properly tendered
and accepted Senior Notes.  The exchange offers will expire at
11:59 p.m., New York City time, on Oct. 26, 2011, unless extended
or earlier terminated.

                    About Hovnanian Enterprises

Red Bank, New Jersey-based Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: HOV)
-- http://www.khov.com/-- founded in 1959 by Kevork S. Hovnanian,
is one of the nation's largest homebuilders with operations in
Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois,
Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North
Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and
West Virginia.  The Company's homes are marketed and sold under
the trade names K. Hovnanian Homes, Matzel & Mumford, Brighton
Homes, Parkwood Builders, Town & Country Homes, Oster Homes and
CraftBuilt Homes.  As the developer of K. Hovnanian's Four Seasons
communities, the Company is also one of the nation's largest
builders of active adult homes.

The Company's balance sheet at July 31, 2011, showed $1.69 billion
in total assets, $2.09 billion in total liabilities and a $399.35
million total deficit.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on April 25, 2011, Fitch Ratings has
affirmed Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc.'s Issuer Default Rating (IDR)
at 'CCC'.  The rating for HOV is influenced by the Company's
execution of its business model, land policies and geographic,
price point and product line diversity.  The rating also reflects
the company's liquidity position, substantial debt and high
leverage.

In the Oct. 10, 2011, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Hovnanian
Enterprises Inc. to 'CC' from 'CCC'.  "We also lowered our ratings
on the company's rated senior debt.  We downgraded the first-lien
senior secured notes to 'CC' from 'CCC' and downgraded the senior
unsecured notes to 'C' from 'CC'.

"The downgrade follows Hovnanian's announcement that its K.
Hovnanian subsidiary has commenced an offer to exchange certain
existing senior notes with coupons ranging from 6.25% to 11.875%
scheduled to mature between 2014 through 2017 for new 2% secured
notes to mature in 2021," said credit analyst George Skoufis."
"According to our criteria, we view this as a 'distressed
Exchange' and tantamount to a default."

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 13, 2011, Moody's Investors
Service downgraded the corporate family and probability of default
ratings of Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. to Caa2 from Caa1.  The
downgrade reflects Hovnanian's continued operating losses,
weak gross margins, very high homebuilding debt leverage, and
Moody's expectation that the weakness in year-over-year revenues,
deliveries, and net new contracts experienced by the company will
continue for the next one to two years.  In addition, the
downgrades acknowledge that Hovnanian's cash balance is weakening
and cash flow generation is negative as it pursues new land
opportunities, which represented about $300 million of investment
over the first nine months of fiscal 2011.


IDEARC INC: 5th Cir. Rejects Spencer Committee's Plan Appeal
------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit affirmed the
district court orders denying the Spencer ad hoc Equity
Committee's (1) appeal of the bankruptcy court's confirmation
order of Idearc, Inc.'s reorganization plan on the grounds of
equitable mootness and (2) motion for a trial de novo of its fraud
claims.

On Dec. 8, 2009, the day before the confirmation hearing on the
Plan, the Spencer Committee filed objections to the confirmation
hearing set for the very next day, alleging fraud in a prior
spinoff of the Debtors from Verizon Communications, Inc.  The
Spencer Committee attempted to assert claims against Verizon and
JPMorgan Chase & Co. and their affiliates, and sought a jury trial
on the issues raised.  Beginning Dec. 9, the bankruptcy court
heard two days worth of arguments regarding the confirmation of
the Plan.  On Dec. 21, the bankruptcy court held a subsequent
confirmation hearing on the Plan.  On Dec. 22, the bankruptcy
court issued its order confirming the Plan, and the Spencer
Committee filed its notice of appeal of the Confirmation Order to
the district court.

On Aug. 18, 2010, the district court granted Idearc's motion to
dismiss the Spencer Committee's appeal of the Confirmation Order
on the grounds of equitable mootness, and denied the Spencer
Committee's motion for a trial de novo of its fraud claims.

The Fifth Circuit held that the district court did not err in
granting Idearc's motion to dismiss the Spencer Committee's appeal
of the Confirmation Order on the grounds of equitable mootness.
The Fifth Circuit pointed out that (1) the Spencer Committee
appeared before the bankruptcy court and did not obtain a stay,
(2) the Plan has been substantially consummated, and (3) the
Spencer Committee's requested relief would adversely impact the
success of the Plan or the rights of third parties not before the
court.

                        About Idearc Inc.

Headquartered in D/FW Airport, Texas, Idearc, Inc., now known as
SuperMedia Inc., is the second largest U.S. yellow pages
publisher.  Idearc was spun off from Verizon Communications, Inc.

Idearc and its affiliates filed for Chapter 11 protection on
March 31, 2009 (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Lead Case No. 09-31828).  The
Debtors' financial condition as of Dec. 31, 2008, showed total
assets of $1,815,000,000 and total debts of $9,515,000,000.
Toby L. Gerber, Esq., at Fulbright & Jaworski, LLP, represented
the Debtors in their restructuring efforts.  The Debtors tapped
Moelis & Company as their investment banker; Kurtzman Carson
Consultants LLC as their claims agent.

William T. Neary, the United States Trustee for Region 6,
appointed six creditors to serve on the official committee of
unsecured creditors.  The Committee selected Mark Milbank, Tweed,
Hadley & McCloy LLP, as counsel, and Haynes and Boone, LLP, co-
counsel.

Idearc completed its debt restructuring and its plan of
reorganization became effective as of Dec. 31, 2009.  In
connection with its emergence from bankruptcy, Idearc changed its
name to SuperMedia Inc.  Under its reorganization, Idearc reduced
its total debt from more than $9 billion to $2.75 billion of
secured bank debt.

Less than two years since leaving bankruptcy protection,
SuperMedia remains in quandary.  Early in October 2011, Moody's
Investors Service slashed its corporate family rating for
SuperMedia to Caa1 from B3 prior.  The downgrade reflects Moody's
belief that revenues will continue to decline at a double digit
rate for the foreseeable future, leading to a steady decline in
free cash flow.  SuperMedia's sales were down 17% for the second
quarter of 2011 in a generally improving advertising sector.
Moody's ratings outlook for SuperMedia remains negative.

While SuperMedia is attempting to transition the business away
from its reliance on print advertising through development of
online and mobile directory service applications, Moody's is
increasingly concerned that the company will not be able to make
this change quickly enough to stabilize the revenue base over the
intermediate term. Further, the high fixed cost nature of
SuperMedia's business could lead to steep margin compression,
notwithstanding continued aggressive cost management.


INNKEEPERS USA: Reaches Deal With Cerberus and Chatham
------------------------------------------------------
Innkeepers USA Trust and its affiliates have reached an updated
agreement with Cerberus Series Four Holdings, LLC, Chatham Lodging
Trust and other related parties that is supported by Innkeepers'
constituents and clears the way for the sale of 64 Innkeepers
hotels to a Cerberus-Chatham joint venture for approximately $1.02
billion.

The sales price yields an increase in value of approximately $75
million to creditors when compared to the baseline bid established
for the May 2011 auction.  Moreover, the settlement can be
effectuated through consensual modifications to the existing Plan
of Reorganization confirmed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in June
2011, which will allow the Company to exit from Chapter 11 as
planned.

"We are very pleased with this outcome," said Innkeepers' Chief
Restructuring Officer, Marc A. Beilinson.  "The updated agreement
provides a significant cash premium to the original stalking horse
bid and a meaningful return to our creditors, and it allows us to
move ahead with a timely exit from Chapter 11."

With the exception of Midland Loan Services and Lehman ALI Inc.,
both of which support the terms of the deal and have agreed to
their treatment under the modified Plan, all of Innkeepers'
unsecured creditors and equity holders will continue to receive
the same treatment they were promised under the confirmed Plan in
June.  The revised agreement is subject to Court approval.

The fixed-rate debt, serviced by Midland, will be modified to the
new amount of approximately $675 million.  Lehman, the holder of
the floating-rate mortgages, will receive a cash payment of
approximately $224 million on account of its claims.

Beilinson noted that throughout its restructuring process,
Innkeepers has maintained normal business operations at all of its
properties, including completing substantial work on the property
improvement plans required by franchisors on time and under
budget, as well as successfully maintaining its supportive
relationships with its franchisors.

"Chatham and Cerberus are excited about owning this valuable
portfolio and look forward to creating significant value for their
shareholders and investors," said Jeff Fisher, Chatham's Chief
Executive Officer.

Kirkland & Ellis LLP is Innkeepers' restructuring counsel and
Moelis & Company LLC is its financial advisor.  Alix Partners

INTERNATIONAL ENERGY: 15% Recovery for Unsec. Claims in 6 Yrs.
--------------------------------------------------------------
International Energy Holdings Corp. delivered to the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Iowa a plan of
reorganization and disclosure statement dated Sept. 23, 2011.

The primary purpose of the Plan is to effectuate the restructuring
of the Debtor's capital structure to strengthen the balance sheet
by reducing its overall indebtedness.

The Plan represents a proposed compromise and settlement of
various significant claims against the Debtor:

  * Administrative Claims and Priority Tax Claims will receive
    payment in full in Cash.

  * Class 1 Secured Tax Claims, Class 2 HCI Construction Secured
    Claim, Class 3 The Next Phase LLC Secured Claim and Class 4
    All other Secured Claims are impaired claims.  All Allowed
    Claims under these Classes will be paid 30% over 6 years with
    simple interst of 5.25% starting from Jan. 31, 2013.

  * Class 5 Green Capital LLC Unsecured Claim and Class 6 General
    Unsecured Claims are also impaired claims.  All Allowed
    Claims in these Classes will be paid 15% of the Allowed Claim
    over 6 years starting from Jan. 31, 2013.

  * Class 7 Equity Interests are unimpaired and will be
    reinstated.

The estimated amount of the Classified Claims are:

    Class 1 Secured Tax Claims                     $120,615
    Class 2 HCI Construction Secured Claim       $5,248,821
    Class 3 The Next Phase LLC Secured Claim     $1,500,000
    Class 4 All Other Secured Claim                $206,578
    Class 5 Green Capital LLC Unsecured Claim    $1,500,000
    Class 6 General Unsecured Claim                $690,990
    Class 7 Equity Interests                            N/A

The Debtor intends to implement its Plan in two ways: (a) raising
approximately $12,500,000 in credit, and (b) from the cash flow
that will be generated from finishing the plant and its future
business operations.

The Debtor strongly believes the Plan provides creditors and
holders of equity interests with a significantly larger
distribution of estate proceeds than would be generated in Chapter
7 liquidation.

In addition, the Reorganized Debtor will provide all stakeholders
and the community these benefits: (1) creation of 20 permanent
jobs, (2) reduction of environmental hazards, (3)
renewable/sustainable energy for foreseeable future, and (4) help
the nation move toward energy independence.

JK HARRIS: IRS Problem Solver Files to Stop Receiver Hearing
------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that JK Harris & Co. LLC, a provider of services to help
individuals with Internal Revenue Service problems, filed for
Chapter 11 protection in Charleston, South Carolina.

According to the report, the Goose Creek, South Carolina-based
company on its Web site says it provides services to consumers
through 325 locations in 43 states.  There are 186 employees, a
court filing says.

The report relates that the company filed in Chapter 11 to halt a
court hearing in Texas where the state attorney general was
seeking appointment of a receiver to take over operations in that
state on account of the company's failure to pay $1.1 million in
settlement of consumer claims, according to a story in the Post
and Courier from Charleston, South Carolina.

JK Harris & Co. LLC filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. S.C.
Case No. 11-06254) on Oct. 7, 2011, in Charleston, South Carolina,
represented by G. William McCarthy, Jr., Esq., at McCarthy Law

JOHN D. OIL: Attempting to Settle Loan Default with Charter One
---------------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed, John D. Oil and Gas Company had its
$9.5 million line of credit with RBS Citizens, N.A., dba Charter
One mature on Aug. 1, 2009, at which time the Company was in
default.  This line of credit is guaranteed by Richard M. Osborne,
the Company's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer.
On Aug. 24, 2009, Charter One received a judgment in its favor
against the Company and Mr. Osborne related to this debt.  On
June 18, 2010, the Company, other parties, and Charter One entered
into a forbearance agreement, pursuant to which Charter One agreed
to forbear from enforcing its rights and remedies under the
Company's line of credit as well as the other parties' loan
agreements until July 1, 2011, subject to no further events of
default including the payments due under the Forbearance
Agreement.  As of July 1, 2011, the forbearance period expired and
the Company has not paid off the line of credit.

On Oct. 3, 2011, Charter One instituted an action in the United
States District Court Northern District of Ohio Eastern Division
claiming a default under the line of credit and seeking to
foreclose upon property of the Company securing the line of credit
and to appoint a receiver for the Company and certain companies
owned or controlled by Mr. Osborne.

The Company continues to meet with Charter One to attempt to reach
a loan agreement satisfactory to both parties.  Additionally, the
Company continues to pursue alternative sources of financing, but
there can be no guarantee that a receiver will not be appointed.

2010 financial results.  The independent auditors noted that the

currently due and subject to a forbearance.


JOHN WILSON: Files for Chapter 11 to Stave Off Foreclosure
----------------------------------------------------------
Paul Grimaldi at the Providence Journal reports that John
Paul Wilson, owner of Wilson's of Wickford, Rhode Island, filed
for federal bankruptcy protection on Oct. 13, 2011, the day before
his North Kingstown clothing business faced a foreclosure auction
by the Washington Trust Co.

According to the report, the Chapter 11 filing by Mr. Wilson will
allow him to reorganize his business finances in an attempt to
stave off closing the family-run shop located in the center of the
historic village.

The report says the initial Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition Mr.
Wilson filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Providence, Rhode
Island, provides few details of the company's finances, listing
only 20 of the entities owed money.

Mr. Grimaldi says the filing temporarily staved off an auction in
which Washington Trust sought to recoup more than $700,000 Mr.
Wilson owes on a mortgage secured by the business and adjacent
properties in Wickford.

The report notes it's unclear at this point what the Wilson family
planned to do with that money, though the filing noted that a
planned condominium sale fell through in October 2010.

Mr. Grimaldi says Washington Trust wants to recoup its money and
has threatened to sell off the 14,000-square-foot building in
Wickford and three other parcels that include a parking lot, a
dock and boat slips.

KINDER MORGAN: Fitch Puts 'BB+' IDR on Watch Negative
-----------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has placed Kinder Morgan Kansas, Inc.'s (KMK) Issuer
Default Rating (IDR) and debt ratings on Rating Watch Negative.
The action follows yesterday's announced agreement whereby Kinder
Morgan, Inc. (KMI), parent company to KMK, will acquire the
outstanding shares of El Paso Corporation (EP) in a $38 billion
transaction expected to close in 2Q'12.  In addition, Fitch has
affirmed the ratings for Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (KMP)
with a Stable Rating Outlook.  Approximately $15 billion of long-
term debt is affected by today's rating action.

Transactional Risk for KMK: The placement of KMK on Rating Watch
Negative reflects the transactional risk associated with the
purchase of EP and planned asset sales and dropdowns that are
essential to the subsequent pay down of acquisition debt.  KMK has
a commitment from Barclays Capital for $11.5 billion to underwrite
the full amount of the cash required for the transaction. KMK
plans on selling EP's oil and gas assets simultaneously with the
close of the acquisition.  Company estimates for KMK at the
holding company level is targeted to have year-end 2012 debt-to-
EBITDA of 3.1 times (x) which is consistent with its present
leverage.  However, de-leveraging to achieve those targets is
dependent on a successful future sale of E&P properties in terms
of price and timing, as well as favorable conditions for the
financings of drop-downs of El Paso pipeline assets.  Over the
longer term KMK leverage metrics should improve as general and
limited partner distributions from its master limited partner
(MLP) affiliates increase.

Lower Business Risk: As contemplated, KMI's consolidated company
business risk will be lowered given the cash flow stability
associated with EP's interstate pipeline affiliates. Pro forma the
transaction, 69% of consolidated EBITDA will come from its lowest
risk natural gas and petroleum products pipelines.  The company's
CO2 oil production operations which are exposed to commodity price
and volume exposure will only contribute 12% of EBITDA.

KMP Unaffected by the Acquisition: Over the near term KMP will be
unaffected by KMI's purchase of EP.  However, post closing KMP
will have an opportunity to purchase pipeline assets now residing
at EP.  The EP owned interstate pipelines generate stable cash
flows and are a good fit in KMP's MLP structure.  KMP would be
expected to finance pipeline purchases with an appropriate mix of
debt and equity.

Catalysts for Future Rating Actions: Possible catalysts for
negative rating actions include failure to sell the E&P business
on a timely basis or if the sale occurs at a price level
significantly below expected levels, which could slow planned de-
leveraging.  Possible catalysts for resolution of the Rating Watch
Negative include progress towards successful completion of the E&P
sale and asset drop downs and related financings, which should
allow the company to de-lever in line with its stated schedule.

KINGSBURY CORP: Seeks Access to $300,000 Diamond DIP Financing
--------------------------------------------------------------
Kingsbury Corporation is seeking authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Hampshire to obtain
postpetition financing from Diamond Business Credit, LLC, in the
form of an increase in the inventory advance rate with the advance
not to exceed $300,000, in addition to the Debtor's prepetition
revolving line of credit with Diamond.

The Debtor requires the proposed postpetition financing in order
to rehire employees and purchase supplies necessary to restart its
operations and meet other critical postpetition obligations in the
ordinary course.  The proceeds of the DIP Financing will be used
to pay the expenses set forth in a Budget, such as payroll, vendor
and supplier costs, and other expenses necessary to restart and
maintain operations.  Absent this relief, the Debtor will be
forced to liquidate its assets quickly, to the substantial
detriment of its creditors.  The DIP Financing is necessary to
preserve, protect and maintain the going concern value of the
Debtor's assets and maximize the value of its estate.

According to Jennifer Rood, Esq., at Berstein, Shur, Sawyer &
Nelson, the Debtor is unable to obtain unsecured credit sufficient
to operate or reorganize its business by providing an
administrative expense claim.  The DIP Financing was obtained on
the most favorable terms available to the Debtor following
discussions with various lending sources.  Under existing time
constraints and conditions, and considering the limited available
collateral of the Debtor, alternative financing was not and is not
available at all, or on a timely basis.

Pending final hearing on the DIP Financing, the Debtor anticipates
the need to borrow funds sufficient to cover expenses as set forth
in the Budget.  These funds must be advanced from Sept. 30, 2011,
through Oct. 21, 2011, and are necessary to avoid immediate and
irreparable harm to the Debtor's estate.  Weekly payroll and
certain critical expenses must be paid, and the Debtor will have
insufficient funds to pay payroll and other critical expenses
unless the advances are made.

Ms. Rood informs the Court that the Debtor does not currently have
an alternative source of working capital with which to continue
its operations and to pay its ordinary course obligations, such as
those owed to suppliers, employees, insurers, and taxing
authorities.  In order for the Debtor to continue operating its
business during the case, the Debtor needs a source of working
capital.

KINGSBURY CORP: Wants Access to Leinholders' Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------
Kingsbury Corp. seeks authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of New Hampshire to use the amounts in its existing
bank accounts, including the Lockbox, and cash generated
postpetition in the ordinary course of business, including payment
of items consistent with the terms of the DIP Financing.

Kingsbury Corp.'s inventory and accounts receivable, including
cash held in a certain lockbox maintained at TD Bank, N.A., and
controlled by TD Bank for the benefit of TD Bank and Diamond
Business Credit LLC, are subject to purported liens of Diamond,
TD Bank, Utica Leaseco LLC and the New Hampshire Department of
Employment Security.  Accordingly, the proceeds of the collateral
constitute the Lienholders' cash collateral.

As adequate protection of the Lienholders' interests in the Cash
Collateral, the Debtor seeks authority to grant the Lienholders a
continuing, post-petition interest in the Cash Collateral and its
proceeds to the same nature, extent and priority as the pre-
petition liens held by the Lienholders in the Debtor's inventory
and accounts receivable, to the extent the Cash Collateral is used
by the Debtor or the value of the Cash Collateral is otherwise
diminished as a consequence of the pendency of this case and the
automatic stay.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Deutsche Not Suffering Buyer's Remorse on Claims
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that Deutsche Bank AG
says it isn't suffering from "buyer's remorse" on its $2.4 billion
in Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. bankruptcy claims and is accusing
Lehman of making a "newfound interpretation" of its own creditor-
payback plan that could diminish how much it and others recover.

                         About Lehman Brothers

Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. -- http://www.lehman.com/-- was
the fourth largest investment bank in the United States.  For
more than 150 years, Lehman Brothers has been a leader in the

(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 08-13555).  Lehman's bankruptcy
petition disclosed US$639 billion in assets and US$613 billion in
debts, effectively making the firm's bankruptcy filing the
largest in U.S. history.  Several other affiliates followed

or more than a year after LBHI and its other affiliates filed
their bankruptcy cases.

The Debtors' bankruptcy cases are handled by Judge James M. Peck.

trustee for the SIPA liquidation of the business of LBI.

The Bankruptcy Court has approved Barclays Bank Plc's purchase
of Lehman Brothers' North American investment banking and
capital markets operations and supporting infrastructure for
US$1.75 billion.  Nomura Holdings Inc., the largest brokerage

LOS ANGELES DODGERS: Balk at Season Ticket Holders' Committee Bid
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Lance Duroni at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the Los Angeles
Dodgers LLC on Tuesday blasted a bid by a group of season ticket
holders for official committee status in the team's Delaware
bankruptcy, saying the move would be a pointless waste of estate
resources.

                     About Los Angeles Dodgers

Los Angeles Dodgers LLC operates the Los Angeles Dodgers, a
professional Major League Baseball club in the Los Angeles
metropolitan area.  Frank McCourt, a Boston real-estate developer
who unsuccessfully bid for the Boston Red Sox, bought the Dodgers
from Rupert Murdoch's Fox Entertainment Group, Inc. in 2004 for
$330 million.  Mr. McCourt also bought the Dodgers Stadium from
Fox for $100 million.

Los Angeles Dodgers LLC filed for bankruptcy protection (Bankr.
D. Del. Lead Case No. 11-12010) on June 27, 2011, after MLB
Commissioner Bud Selig rejected a television deal with News
Corp.'s Fox Sports, leaving Mr. McCourt unable to make payroll for
June 30 and July 1.  Fox Sports has exclusive cable television
rights for Dodgers games until the end of 2013 baseball season.

Chapter 11 filings were also made for LA Real Estate LLC, an
affiliated entity which owns Dodger Stadium, and three other
related holding companies.

The petition estimates assets of up to $500 million and debts of
up to $1 billion.  In its schedules, the LA Dodgers baseball club
disclosed $77,963,734 in assets and $4,695,702 in liabilities.  LA
Real Estate LLC disclosed $161,761,883 in assets and $0 in
liabilities.

According to Forbes, the team is worth about $800 million, making
it the third most valuable baseball team after the New York
Yankees and the Boston Red Sox.

Judge Kevin Gross presides over the case.  Lawyers at Young,
Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor and Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP serve as the
Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC is the
claims and notice agent.  Public relations specialist Kekst and
Company has been hired for crisis support.  Covington & Burling
LLP serves as special counsel.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case.  The panel has tapped Lazard Freres & Co. as financial
adviser and investment banker, and Morrison & Foerster LLP and
Pinckney, Harris & Weidinger, LLC as counsel.

Ticket holders are seeking the appointment of their own committee.

The LA Dodgers is the 12th sports team in North America to have
sought bankruptcy protection, according to The Wall Street
Journal.

The reorganization is being financed with a $150 million unsecured
loan from the Commissioner of Major League Baseball.  The loan
gives the Commissioner few of the controls lenders often demanded
from bankrupt companies.


LYRIC OPERA: Will File for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
-----------------------------------------------------------
Nathan Max at Sign on San Diego News reports that, buried under
an enormous mortgage and faced with disappointing donations and
ticket sales, Lyric Opera San Diego said on Oct. 14, 2011, that it
will file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

According to the report, Lyric Opera has laid off two-thirds of
its staff, including General Director Leon Natker and Artistic
Director J. Sherwood Montgomery.  Lyric Opera has been trying to
sell the 32,000-square-foot, 731-seat theater and get out from
under its $4 million mortgage, for nearly a year.

Mr. Max relates that Lyric Opera has been seeking about $5 million
for the theater and has so far rejected two offers.

The report notes that the announcement comes just one month after
Mr. Natker had said the company's financial situation had
stabilized.

Lyric Opera owns the 82-year-old Birch North Park Theatre.

MAGNESIUM CORP: $4.1MM Avoidance Suit v. Williams Goes to Trial
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Robert E. Gerber denied cross-motions for summary
judgment filed by the parties to the lawsuit, Lee E. Buchwald,
Chapter 7 Trustee of the estates of Magnesium Corporation of
America and Renco Metals, Inc., v. Williams Energy Marketing &
Trading Co., f/k/a Barrett Resources Corp., Adv. Pro. No. 04-02656
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y.).

The Chapter 7 trustee seeks to recover roughly $4.1 million in
allegedly voidable preferential payments that had been made to the
predecessor of Williams Power Company for natural gas that MagCorp
consumed in its magnesium processing operations.  The Trustee
seeks judgment for the recovery of the preferential payments that
MagCorp had made (net of new value Williams provided), and
Williams seeks summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
Williams contends that it is absolved from the potential
preference exposure that vendors normally have to their customers
because the payments should be deemed "settlement payments" on a
"commodities forward contract," made to a "forward contract
merchant," that are subject to a safe harbor under section 546(e)
of the Bankruptcy Code.

Judge Gerber said the Chapter 7 Trustee's summary judgment motion
requires little discussion.  It raises factual issues for which a
determination now is premature.

Williams' motion for defendant's summary judgment, on the other
hand, is much more difficult, as section 546(e) -- along with
other Bankruptcy Code provisions on which its application depends
-- is hardly a model of drafting precision, the judge said.
Though policy points are made by both sides -- and those made by
the Chapter 7 Trustee are particularly compelling -- the question
of section 546(e)'s application is still one of statutory
construction.  It will ultimately depend most on whether Williams'
predecessor -- or MagCorp, though in MagCorp's case, the question
is easily answered -- was a "forward contract merchant," as that
expression is used in the Code and as its meaning can be divined,
with respect to the transactions at issue.  That issue will
require greater factual development, and cannot be decided as a
matter of law, on summary judgment, now, the judge said.

A copy of the Court's Oct. 17, 2011 decision is available at
http://is.gd/sB4kEyfrom Leagle.com.

Magnesium Corporation of America, a unit of Renco Group Inc., was
the largest single producer of magnesium in the United States.
The Company filed for chapter 11 protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case
No. 01-14312) on Aug. 2, 2001.  The Debtors sold substantially all
of their assets to U.S. Magnesium, LLC, in a Sec. 363 asset sale
transaction.  Judge Robert Gerber ordered the case converted to a
chapter 7 liquidation on Sept. 24, 2003.  When the Company filed
for Chapter 11 protection from its creditors, it listed debts and
assets of more than $100 million.


MANISTIQUE PAPERS: Can Borrow Up to $2 Million from mBank
---------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware has
authorized Manistique Papers, Inc., on an interim basis, to borrow
up to $2,000,000 in principal amount of postpetion financing from
mBank, as DIP Lender, in accordance with the terms of the Interim
Order, the DIP Agreement and the other DIP Documents.

A copy of the interim DIP Order is available for free at:

        http://bankrupt.com/misc/manistique.dkt161.pdf

As reported in the TCR on Sept. 30, 2011, the Debtor sought
permission from the Bankruptcy Court to enter into a first
priority senior secured multiple draw term credit facility in an
aggregate principal amount of $5 million, bearing an interest rate
of The Wall Street Journal Prime Rate, plus 1.00%.

The DIP loan will be provided by mBank, with participation by the
State of Michigan's Michigan Strategic Fund.  Upon interim
authority from the Court, the Debtor is entitled to draw up to
$2 million under the DIP Facility and the remaining amounts
available upon final authority from the Court.

The DIP Lender will be granted postpetition first priority liens
on unencumbered assets of the Debtor, priming liens on collateral
securing the Debtor's $1.1 million Prepetition Loan from RBS
Citizens National Association, and superpriority administrative
expense claims.

The Debtor told the Court that it needs the DIP financing to
prevent the conversion of its bankruptcy case to Chapter 7, and to
fund a restart of its manufacturing operations.  Without the DIP
Facility, the Debtor does not have access to sufficient capital to
operate.

MAQ MANAGEMENT: McIntyre Panzarella OK'd as Replacement Counsel
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida
approved the request of Thomas M. Messana, Esq. and the law firm
of Messana, P.A., to withdraw as counsel of record for Maq
Management, Inc., et al.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 12, 2011,
the Debtors asked the Court for authority to employ Messana to
replace Talarchyk Merrill LLC as general bankruptcy counsel.

The Court ordered, on an interim basis, that the law firm of
McIntyre, Panzarella, Thanasides, Hoffman, Bringgold & Todd, P.L.,
is employed as counsel for the Debtors.

The Court also ordered that Messana is discharged from any and all
future obligations in the instant cases.  Messana is directed to
file its application for final fees as Chapter 11 bankruptcy
counsel not later than 21 days after entry of the Oct. 13 order.

In a separate filing, Donald F. Walton, U.S. Trustee for Region
21, objected to the employment of Richard J. McIntyre and the Law
Firm of McIntyre, Panzarella, Thanasides, Hoffman, Bringgold &
Todd, P.L., as substitute counsel for the Debtors.

The U.S. Trustee noted that while not clear in the application,
the declaration of Richard J. McIntyre, Esq. stated that his firm
received a $25,000 postpetition retainer from BNK Real Estate,
LLC.  The firm will also receive a second $25,000 retainer from
BNK Real Estate, LLC, and BNK Real Estate, LLC will continue to
replenish the retainer such that the balance will always exceed
$25,000.

According to the U.S. Trustee, the application also:

   -- failed to state the relationship between the Debtors and BNK
   Real Estate, LLC and fails to state whether the payment of the
   Debtors' attorneys fees will be treated as a loan to the
   Debtors, an administrative expense of the estates or an equity
   infusion; and

   -- failed to clarify if BNK Real Estate, LLC is a creditor of
   any of the Debtors, the U.S. Trustee is concerned about the
   possibility of a lack of disinterestedness.

MARCO POLO SEATRADE: Judge OKs Deal to Wipe Away $48-Million Claim
------------------------------------------------------------------
Hilary Russ at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a New York
bankruptcy judge approved a deal Tuesday allowing Marco Polo
Seatrade BV to wash away a $48 million claim that stemmed from a
sinking oil tanker project it had undertaken with German bank
Norddeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale.

According to Law360, the compromise settles an out-of-court
dispute that, if left unresolved, could have threatened to drown
Marco Polo in litigation over whether to maintain its portion of
ownership in the Sudtank project, which was a 2007 loan agreement
between Marco Polo, other shareholders and NordLB.

                         About Marco Polo

Marco Polo Seatrade B.V. operates an international commercial
vessel management company that specializes in providing
commercial and technical vessel management services to third
parties.  Founded in 2005, the Company mainly operates under the
name of Seaarland Shipping Management and maintains corporate
headquarters in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.  The primary assets
consist of six tankers that are regularly employed in
international trade, and call upon ports worldwide.

Marco Polo and three affiliated entities filed for Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 11-13634) on July 29,
2011.  The other affiliates are Seaarland Shipping Management
B.V.; Magellano Marine C.V.; and Cargoship Maritime B.V.

Marco Polo is the sole owner of Seaarland, which in turn is the
sole owner of Cargoship, and also holds a 5% stake in Magellano.
The remaining 95% stake in Magellano is owned by Amsterdam-based
Poule B.V., while another Amsterdam company, Falm International
Holding B.V. is the sole owner of Marco Polo.  Falm and Poule
didn't file bankruptcy petitions.

The filings were prompted after lender Credit Agricole Corporate
& Investment Bank seized one ship on July 21, 2011, and was on
the cusp of seizing two more on July 29.  The arrest of the
vessel was authorized by the U.K. Admiralty Court.  Credit
Agricole also attached a bank account with almost US$1.8 million
on July 29.  The Chapter 11 filing precluded the seizure of the
two other vessels.

Evan D. Flaschen, Esq., Robert G. Burns, Esq., and Andrew J.
Schoulder, Esq., at Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, serve as bankruptcy
counsel.  The cases are before Judge James M. Peck.

Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC is the claims and noticing agent.

$331,832,769 in liabilities.

MOHEGAN TRIBAL: Files Sept. Statistical Report for Mohegan Sun
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, on Oct. 17, 2011, posted on
its Web site its Slot Machine Statistical Report for Mohegan Sun
containing statistics relating to slot handle, gross slot win,
gross slot hold percentage, slot win contribution, free
promotional slot play contribution and weighted average number of
slot machines.  The Slot Machine Statistical Report includes these
statistics on a monthly basis for the fiscal years ended Sept. 30,
2011, and 2010.  A copy of the Slot Machine Statistical Report is
available for free at http://is.gd/pZJI8y

                       About Mohegan Tribal

Headquartered in Uncasville, Conn., Mohegan Tribal Gaming
Authority conducts and regulates gaming activities on Tribal
lands, which are federally recognized Indian tribe reservations in
southeastern Connecticut.

The Authority has noted that its Bank Credit Facility matures on
March 9, 2012 and its 2002 Senior Subordinated Notes mature on
April 1, 2012.  In addition, a substantial portion of the
Authority's remaining indebtedness matures over the following
three fiscal years.  The Authority believes that it will need to
refinance all or part of its indebtedness at or prior to each
maturity thereof in order to maintain sufficient resources for its
operations.  The Authority has engaged Blackstone Advisory
Partners, L.P. to assist in its strategic planning relating to its
debt maturities.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed $2.17 billion
in total assets, $1.99 billion in total liabilities, and
$176.04 million in total capital.

                           *     *     *

At the end of November 2010, Moody's Investors Service downgraded
Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority's Corporate Family and Probability
of Default ratings to Caa2 from B3.  All of MTGA's rated long-term
debt was also lowered.  The rating outlook is negative.

The ratings downgrade reflects Moody's view that MTGA could
find it difficult to refinance significant upcoming debt
maturities without some impairment to bondholders given its high
leverage -- debt/EBITDA is over 7 times -- limited near-term
growth prospects for Mohegan Sun Casino, the likely continuation
of weak consumer gaming demand trends in the Northeastern U.S.,
and the strong possibility of gaming in Massachusetts.  The
company's $675 million revolver ($527 million outstanding at
Sept. 30, 2010) expires in March 2012 and its $250 million 8%
senior subordinated notes mature in April 2012.  Combined, these
debt items account for about 50% of MTGA's total debt outstanding.

MTGA has announced that it hired Blackstone Group to help deal
with its capital structure issues, although no details have been
made available regarding MTGA's options.  Given the company's
recently announced weak fiscal fourth quarter results along with
the significant near- and long-term challenges previously
mentioned, Moody's believes a restructuring that involves some
impairment to bondholders will be considered.

The negative ratings outlook reflects the relatively short time
frame in which MTGA has to address what Moody's believes to be a
significant capital structure issue.  If MTGA is not able to
refinance by March 2011 its $675 million revolver will be become
current.  The same holds true for the company's $250 million 8%
senior subordinated notes to the extent these notes are not
refinanced by April 1, 2011.


MOORE SORRENTO: Plan Provides for 100% Recovery on Claims
---------------------------------------------------------
Moore Sorrento, LLC, delivered a plan of reorganization and
disclosure statement dated Oct. 3, 2011, to the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Texas.

The Plan classifies various claims and interests against the
Debtor.  All classes of claims and interests are estimated to have
100% recovery under the Plan.

Class 1 Convenience Claims will receive a single cash payment
equal to 100% of the Allowed Claim without interest.  Any holder
of a General Unsecured Claim may make an election under the Plan
to be treated as a Convenience Claims.

Class 2 Wells Fargo Secured Claim is estimated to be $39.8
million.  Wells Fargo's Allowed Claim based on the First Note will
be paid in 60 installments and will bear a 5% interest per annum
as of the Effective Date.  Wells Fargo's Allowed Claim based on
the Second Note will be paid in 60 installments and will bear a 7%
interest per annum as of the Effective Date.

Class 3 General Unsecured Claims will receive the allowed claim
amount in 60 installments without interest.

Class 4 Secured Tax Claim will also be paid in 60 equal
installments, and will bear interest at a rate yet to be fixed.

Class 5 Interests in the Debtor will be retain.  Collins and

NCO GROUP: APAC Customer Services Acquired by One Equity Partners
-----------------------------------------------------------------
APAC Customer Services, Inc., announced it was acquired by One
Equity Partners, the private investment arm of JPMorgan Chase &
Co.

One Equity Partners paid APAC stockholders $8.55 per share in
cash, which represents a premium of approximately 57% over APAC's
closing share price on July 6, 2011, the last trading day prior to
the announcement of the transaction.

One Equity Partners is the majority owner of NCO Group, Inc., a
leading global provider of business process outsourcing services.
As previously disclosed, OEP intends to continue to seek to
combine APAC with NCO Group to build market leadership in business
process outsourcing and customer care solutions.

Tom Kichler, Managing Director at One Equity Partners, commented,
"We look forward to helping APAC build on its record of delivering
great customer experiences."

Kevin Keleghan, APAC's President and CEO, commented, "OEP's
acquisition of APAC has been well received and supported by our
customers and our people.  We are proud of the great company and
shareholder value that we have built, and we appreciate the

period ended Sept. 30, 2007.

The Company reported a net loss of $155.71 million on

compared with a net loss of $88.14 million on $1.58 billion of
revenue during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed $1.18 billion
in total assets, $1.16 billion in total liabilities and $15.11
million in total stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 2, 2011,
Moody's Investors Service downgraded NCO Group, Inc.'s CFR to Caa1
from B3 and changed the outlook to negative.  Simultaneously,
Moody's has also downgraded each of NCO's debt instrument ratings
by one notch and lower the Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to
SGL-4 from SGL3.  The downgrade reflects Moody's concern that
greater than expected revenue declines and continued earnings
pressure will extend beyond current levels due to deteriorating
consumer payment patterns and weaker volumes.  In addition,
Moody's expects financial flexibility will be further aggravated
by tightening headroom under its financial covenants and a
potential breach of covenants which will limit the company's
ability to draw upon its revolver.  Also, the company faces an
impending maturity on its $100 million senior secured revolving
credit facility due November of 2011.


NEW GENERATION: Inks 3rd Amendment Agreement with Alpha Capital
---------------------------------------------------------------
New Generation Biofuels Holdings, Inc., on Oct. 11, 2011, entered
into a Third Amendment Agreement with Alpha Capital Anstalt, which
amended the Feb. 1, 2011, Subscription Agreement, as amended
Feb. 28, 2011, June 7, and Aug. 4, 2011, by and among the Company
and four investors (of which Alpha was one).  Pursuant to the
Third Amendment Agreement, Alpha agreed to provide $25,000 to the
Company on the same terms as the Subscription Agreement, which it
did on Oct. 12, 2011.

The Company is actively seeking alternative financing
arrangements, including discussions with Alpha and other parties.
The Company does not have any known source of funding available as
of Oct. 17, 2011.  If the Company is unable to obtain additional
financing, whether through the issuance of equity or debt, or find
a financing partner, it is unlikely that the Company will be able
to continue as a going concern.  The Company estimates that it
currently has sufficient funds to operate the business of the
Company for less than 30 days without any additional financing.

                       About New Generation

Columbia, Md.-based New Generation Biofuels Holdings, Inc., is a
clean energy company deploying novel technologies to produce
cleaner, renewable biofuels.  The Company has rights to a
portfolio of patented and patent pending technology to manufacture
alternative biofuels from plant oils, animal fats and related
oils, which it markets as a new class of biofuel for power
generation, commercial and industrial heating, and related uses.

The Company reported a net loss of $4.24 million on $0 of
total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2011, compared
with a net loss of $5.92 million on $6,477 of total revenue for
the same period during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed $5.99 million
in total assets, $7.23 million in total liabilities, and a
$1.24 million total stockholders' deficit.

Reznick Group, P.C., in Vienna, Va., expressed substantial doubt
about New Generation Biofuels Holdings' ability to continue as a
going concern, following the Company's 2010 results.  The
independent auditors noted that the Company has experienced
negative cash flows from operations since inception and is
dependent upon future financing in order to meet its planned
operating activities.

The Company said it is seeking to raise additional capital through
public or private placement offerings and targeting strategic
partners.  The ability of the Company to continue as a going
concern is dependent upon the success of capital offerings or
alternative financing arrangements and expansion of its
operations.  If the Company is unsuccessful in raising additional
capital from any of these sources, it will defer, reduce, or
eliminate certain planned expenditures.  The Company will continue
to consider other financing alternatives.  There can be no
assurance that the Company will be able to obtain any sources of
financing on acceptable terms, or at all.

If the Company cannot obtain sufficient additional financing in
the short-term, it may be forced to restructure or significantly
curtail its operations, file for bankruptcy or cease operations.


NORTEL NETWORKS: $4.5 Billion IP Deal Still Under DOJ Review
------------------------------------------------------------
Erin Coe at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a Microsoft Corp.
executive confirmed Monday that federal regulators were still
reviewing the $4.5 billion sale of Nortel Networks Inc.'s patent
portfolio to a group of tech giants including Microsoft and
Ericsson Inc.

Law360 relates that David Kaefer, general manager of intellectual
property licensing for Microsoft, said during a panel discussion
at a conference held by the Licensing Executives Society in
San Diego that the company was waiting on the U.S. Department of
Justice to provide guidance on the deal.

After a four-day auction in June, a consortium emerged as the
winning bidder with a cash purchase price of US$4.5 billion for
the remaining patent portfolio of Nortel Networks Inc.
The consortium, identified as Rockstar Bidco, LP, consists of
Apple Inc., EMC Corporation, Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson,
Microsoft Corp., Research In Motion Limited, and Sony Corporation.

The significant interest from tech firms for the patents raised
the price to five times Google Inc.'s opening bid of $900 million.
Ranger Inc., the entity formed by Google, as the stalking horse
bidder, will receive at least $25 million as "break-up fee".

                        About Nortel Networks

Nortel Networks S.A.  On June 8, 2009, Nortel Networks UK Limited
filed petitions in this Court for recognition of the English
Proceedings as foreign main proceedings under chapter 15 of the

Nortel Networks divested off key assets while in Chapter 11.
Nortel has raised US$3.2 billion by selling its operations as it
prepares to wind up a two-year liquidation due to insolvency.

agreeing to sell its remaining patent portfolio to Rockstar Bidco
LP, a consortium consisting of Apple Inc., EMC Corporation,
Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, Microsoft Corp., Research In
Motion Limited, and Sony Corporation.  The consortium defeated a
US$900 million stalking horse bid by Google Inc. at an auction.
The deal closed in July.

Nortel Networks has filed a proposed plan of liquidation in the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court.  The Plan generally provides for full
payment on secured claims with other distributions going in
accordance with the priorities in bankruptcy law.

PACIFIC DEVELOPMENT: Taps Marquiss to Appraise Heritage Village
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Development, L.C., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Utah for permission to employ Marquiss Appraisal
Services, LLC, as appraiser for the Debtor's Heritage Village
subdivision in Payson, Utah, well as other properties if needed.

The Debtor needs to determine the fair market value of its
Heritage Village property as part of ongoing proceedings regarding
Central Bank's foreclosure on the same.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 21, 2011,
Central Bank provided postpetition funding to construct four homes
at a time for pre-sold contracts to qualified buyers.  The
Debtor's Plan provides for the continuation of the development and
construction of Heritage Village, its residential development in
Payson, Utah.

Marquiss will also provide all other attendant services required
of a listing agent and broker in a real estate transaction.

The Debtor seeks permission to pay Marquiss $4,000 upon receipt of
the appraisal, without further notice or order from the Court.  To
the extent that additional services are required, as expert
testimony at a hearing in the case, Marquiss will charge his
ordinary hourly rate of $75.  The Debtor will not pay, and does
not seek authority by the application to pay, any hourly fees of
Marquiss for the services.  Rather, any such fees will be
requested for approval by the Court through the ordinary fee
application process.

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

PREMIER GOLF: FENB Motion to Ban Cash Collateral Use Denied
-----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida has
denied Far East National Bank's motion to prohibit Premier Golf
Properties, LP, from using its purported cash collateral, because
postpetition greens fees and driving range fees are not its cash
collateral within the meaning of 11 U.S.C. Section 363.

The Court finds and concludes that postpetition revenues generated
by this Debtor from greens fees and driving fees are not
encumbered by any security interest of Far East National Bank
because of the operation of 11 U.S.C. Section 552(a) which
provides that:

     Except as provided in subsection (b) of this section,
     property acquired by the estate or by the debtor after
     the commencement of the case is not subject to any lien
     resulting from any security agreement entered into by
     the debtor before the commencement of the case.

Further, the Court finds and concludes that the Bank's claimed
security interest does not fit any of the "narrow"exceptions to
the general rule of Section 552(a).

                About Premier Golf Properties, LP

PREMIER GOLF: Plan Offers Full Payment After 28 Months
------------------------------------------------------
Premier Golf Properties, LP, has filed a second amended disclosure
statement explaining its proposed plan of reorganization.

The Debtor's Plan posits a twenty eight (28) month Plan
performance period.  The Debtor is presently paying its operating
expenses as incurred and has an income stream from operations
similar to its pre-petition income.

Based on Cottonwood's five (5) year projection of profit and loss
(statement of cash flows) set out on an non-EBITDA basis, which
include interest only debt service to FENB and real estate tax
payments, Premier Gold believes that it can and will fund the Plan
from operating income inasmuch as the projections reflect net
operating income of $1,109,760 and a non operating income; i.e.,
after debt service to FENB, of $462,047.

As of April 1, 2011, the Premier real estate had total debt of
$14,553,646, consisting of secured debt of $12,612,236 and
unsecured debt of $1,941,410.

The Secured Debt of $12,612,236 consisted of:

1. Real Estate Taxes                                $859,079
2. 1st Trust Deed (Far East National Bank        $11,061,000
3. 2nd Trust Deed (8332 Case St. Inv., Inc.)        $692,236

8332 Case St. Inv., is an entity controlled by an insider.

Of the $1,941,410 in unsecured debt, $169,393 is owed to non
insider unsecured creditors.

The Plan provides for the creation of four (4) classes of secured
creditors, three (3) classes of unsecured creditors and an
administrative expense class:

Class I A.  San Diego County Tax Assessor (real estate taxes).
Class I B.  First Trust Deed Indebtedness due FENB.
CLASS I C.  Second Trust Deed Indebtedness due 8332 Case Street
Class I D.  Claim of Yamaha Motor Corporation USA.

Class II A. Non Insider Unsecured Creditors.
Class II B. Insider Unsecured Creditors.

Class III.  Administrative Claims.

There are no unimpaired classes which are deemed to have accepted
the Plan.

The remaining balance of the real estate taxes owed to the San
Diego Country Tax Assessor (Class I A) will be paid in full upon
the financing/re-financing of all or a portion of the Cottonwood
venue trust deed debt.  In the interim the statutory lien for real
property taxes remains in place and the Debtor will make the
normal and usual semiannual real estate tax payments post petition
and post Plan.

FENB (Class I B) will be paid in full at or prior to the
expiration of the 28 month Plan performance period.  As to
interest payments under the Plan, the Debtor proposes to pay
$57,147 per month in interest; that monthly sum representing 1/2
of the difference between the note rate and the default rate.
8332 Case St. Inv. (Class I C) will take nothing under the Plan
and will subordinate and/or otherwise cooperate with the Debtor.

Class I D consists of the claim of Yamaha Motor Corporation USA
arising out of the lease of golf carts to the Debtor.  The Yamaha
relationship is the subject of (1) Premier Golf Properties, LP v.
Yamaha Golf-Car Company and Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation
of America, case number 37-2011-00067450-CU-BT EC pending in the
San Diego Superior Court and (2) Yamaha Motor Corporation v.
Premier Golf Properties, LP, case number 30-2010-00411742 pending
in the Orange County Superior Court.

It is the intention of the Debtor to complete its litigation with
Yamaha (Class I D) and believes that it is likely to prevail.  In
the interim the Debtor will, during the course of the Plan
performance period, reserve the monthly payments otherwise due
Yamaha.

Non insider unsecured creditors (Class II A) will be paid in full

RCS CAPITAL: To File Plan in 20 Days; Wants Claims Bar Date
-----------------------------------------------------------
RCS Capital Development, LLC, asks the Bankruptcy Court to
establish a deadline by which all parties must file proofs of
claim in the Chapter 11 proceeding.  The Debtor said it expects to
file a Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization within the next 20 days.
In order to determine the number of creditors, amounts owed,
priority of creditors, and various classes, and proceed with the
administration of the case, the Debtor finds it necessary for
persons asserting claims against the Debtor, including Chapter 11
post-petition administrative expenses, to file a proof of claim
within such time as the Court may fix, and that failure to do so
will result in such persons not being treated as creditors for the
purposes of distribution.  The Debtor suggests that proofs of
claim should be filed on or before Nov. 30, 2011.

                        About RCS Capital

RCS Capital Development LLC filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr.
D. Ariz. Case No. 11-28746) on Oct. 12.  The bankruptcy stemmed
from a dispute with A.B.C. Learning Centres Ltd., an Australia-
based operator of childcare centers.  Liquidators for A.B.C. filed
for Chapter 15 relief in May 2010 in Delaware.  In November and
January, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross ruled that the
liquidators are entitled to use Chapter 15 and gave an expansive
reading to the injunction against creditor actions in the U.S.  In
part, Judge Gross was halting collection actions taken in the U.S.
by RCS, which won a $47 million jury verdict against A.B.C. in a
lawsuit over the breach of development contracts for locations in
the U.S.

The A.B.C. liquidators have argued that RCS violated the Chapter
15 order by continuing actions in Nevada to seize property in
which the liquidators claimed an interest.  At a hearing in U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Delaware on Oct. 4, the liquidators asked
Judge Gross to rule that RCS violated the automatic stay.  The
liquidators also wanted RCS to be held in contempt, directed to
return property and assessed with punitive damages.  Judge Gross
concluded the Oct. 4 hearing and said he would rule later, court
records show.

RCS reported $57 million in assets, composed mostly of the
judgment against A.B.C.  RCS listed $50.5 million in claims,
almost all unsecured.  A.B.C. sits atop the list of 20 largest
unsecured creditors with its $40 million disputed claim.

Judge Randolph J. Haines presides over RCS's case.  The Law
Offices of Michael W. Carmel, Ltd., represents the Debtor as
counsel.

R.E. LOANS: Taps Hines Smith as Litigation and Outside Counsel
--------------------------------------------------------------
R.E. Loans, LLC, et al., ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas, for permission to employ Hines Smith
Carder as their litigation and outside general counsel.

HSC will, among other things:

   a. advise the Debtors and assist in the management of
   litigation matters involving Debtors and the assets of Debtors,
   including assisting in the management of outside local counsel
   retained to represent Debtors throughout the United States and
   the development and implementation of appropriate litigation
   and asset preservation strategies;

   b. represent the Debtors in proceedings and hearings in
   California and various other States (either directly where
   licensed or subject to the respective local Courts
   authorization of admission of the members pro hac vice);

   c. advise the Debtors concerning various legal aspects relating
   to the operation of the Debtors' assets, business and affairs.

The Debtors wish to employ Marc S. Hines, Nicole Hampton, Donald
M. Corliss, Jr. and other members, associates, of-counsel
attorneys, and paralegals of HSC.

During the one year period prior to the Petition Date, HSC
received compensation in the aggregate amount of $370,655 from the
Debtors for prepetition services rendered.  Each of these payments
was made in the ordinary course of business of both R.E. Loans and
HSC for services provided by HSC.  The Debtors do not owe HSC any
amounts relating to services rendered prior to the Petition Date.

HSC also received these refundable general retainers: (i) $20,000
retainer February of 2011, when it was first engaged; (ii) $25,000
in May of 2011, upon commencing work on the 2718 Santa Rosa, LLC,
Euby Black, and JB Inc of Gulf Breeze litigation; and (iii) $7,500
when it commenced work on the Rancho Las Flores litigation,
resulting in an aggregate retainer of $52,500.  HSC applied a
total $9,028 out of the HSC Retainer to its fees, and holds the
$43,472 balance of the HSC Retainer as security for the payment of
fees and expenses it will later incur.

To the best of the Debtors' knowledge, HSC is a "disinterested
person" as that term is defined in Section 101(14) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

R.E. LOANS: Court OKs Interim Access to $7-Mil. in DIP Loans
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Barbara J. Houser of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas authorized R.E. Loans, LLC, Capital
Salvage, and R.E. Future, LLC to obtain postpetition loans from
Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC, of up to $1.7 million on an
interim basis.

The Debtors will use the loan proceeds to fund their working
capital needs and for other general corporate purposes in
accordance with a prepared budget, a full-text copy of which is
available at http://bankrupt.com/misc/RELoans_Sept2011Budget.pdf

The Debtors are seeking to obtain postpetition financing of up to
$21.5 million from the Lender on a final basis.

Wells Fargo is also the Debtors' pre-bankruptcy secured lender.
The Debtors are liable to the Lender for all pre-bankruptcy
obligations and indebtedness for approximately $68 million as of
Sept. 13, 2011.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 21, 2011,
the Debtors proposed to grant the DIP Lender, subject to a carve-
out and subject to permitted senior liens, (a) priority in payment
over all administrative expenses, (b) perfected first-priority
security interests in all unencumbered property of the Debtors, if
any, and (c) priming, perfected security interests, senior to all
liens and security interests of, among others, (i) Wells Fargo
under its prepetition credit facility provided to R.E. Loans and
B-4 Partners, LLC, pursuant to a Loan and Security Agreement,
dated as of July 17, 2007, as amended, and (ii) the noteholders
who received notes issued by R.E. Loans and secured by R.E. Loans'
notes receivable in exchange for their membership interests in
R.E. Loans, which liens are junior in priority to the first-
priority liens on all or substantially all of the Debtors' assets
securing the repayment of Wells Fargo's prepetition debt.

The DIP loan matures six months after the Petition Date, but may
be shortened on certain terms.  The DIP loan carries regular
interest rate payable at 3-month LIBOR plus 14% and default
interest of 3-month LIBOR plus 18%.

The Debtors are required to pay a $250,000 Commitment Fee for
first six months; $5,000 per month administrative fee and certain
expense reimbursements.  The Commitment Fee increases for each
month that the initial six-month term of the loan may be extended
based on a formula.

REOSTAR ENERGY: Court Approves Updike Kelly as Attorneys
--------------------------------------------------------
Reostar Energy Corporation and its debtor-affiliates ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas for permission
to employ Updike, Kelly & Spellacy P.C. as their attorneys.

The firm will represent the Debtors in connection with the U.S.
District Court action entitled "Securities & Exchange Commission
v. Francisco Ilaramendi, et al."

Christopher L. Brigham, Esq., principal of the firm, will charge
$385 per hour for this engagement.  The firm's other professionals
will charge the Debtors at these rates:

      Senior associates   $310
      Associates          $215
      Paralegal           $205

The Debtors assured the Court that the firm is a "disinterested
person" within the meaning of Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy
Code.

BT & MK Energy & Commodities LLC objects to the Debtors' request
because to pay the fees of the firm is BTMK's cash collateral and
the Debtors cannot adequately protect BTMK.  Furthermore, the use
of BTMK's funds to prosecute a lawsuit against BTMK is not
authorized by the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code,
says Benjamin H. Price, Esq., at Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP,
attorney of BTMK.

The Debtors told the Court that their obligations under a loan
agreements with certain banks were acquired by BT & MK Energy &
Commodities LLC through a purchase sale that closed on Aug. 14,
2010.

RHODE ISLAND: Fitch Lowers Rating on $17.6 Mil. Bonds to 'CCC'
--------------------------------------------------------------
As part of its ongoing surveillance review process, Fitch Ratings
has downgraded the rating on the following bonds issued by the
Rhode Island Health and Educational Building Corporation, on
behalf of St. Joseph Health Services of Rhode Island (SJHS) to
'CCC' from 'B':

  -- $17.6 million series 1999.

Continued Financial Decline: The rating downgrade to 'CCC'
reflects SJHS's worsened financial position since Fitch's last
review in May 2011.  SJHS's financial profile is characterized by
continued operating losses, extremely weak liquidity, and
inadequate debt service coverage.

Acute Liquidity Deterioration: At July 31, 2011 SJHS's(unaudited)
liquidity position ($1.9 million in unrestricted cash and
investments) reached extremely low levels with days cash on hand
(DCOH) of just 4.6 days, a 0.6 times (x) cushion ratio, and 10.3%
cash to debt.  These metrics are down from their respective
already low levels of 14.3 days, 2.1x, and 35.4% in fiscal 2010
(Sept. 30).  However, management has reported an increase to
unrestricted cash and investments at fiscal year end 2011.

Weak Debt Service Coverage: SJHS had a rate covenant violation in
fiscal 2010 and will not meet the required debt service coverage
ratio in fiscal 2011.

Depressed Utilization Trends: Inpatient admissions have further
declined since Fitch's last review, totaling 6,918 through July
2011, which is down from 7,140 in the prior year period.
Additionally, outpatient surgeries, emergency department visits,
and outpatient visits have all decreased from prior year totals.

Light Debt Burden: SJHS has a relatively light debt burden as
maximum annual debt service ($3 million) represented 1.9% of total
revenues in 2010.

SECURITY: The bonds are secured by a pledge of SJHS gross
receipts, real estate, and debt service reserve fund.

The rating downgrade to 'CCC' reflects the worsened financial
position of SJHS since May 2011.  Specifically, SJHS recorded a
loss from operations of $6 million through the July 2011 interim
period, which translated into a negative 4.5% operating margin and
0% operating EBITDA margin.  SJHS's liquidity levels were at an
all-time low ($1.9 million in unrestricted cash and investments)
as of July 31, 2011, which leaves the organization with almost no
financial cushion; however, management has reported that
unrestricted cash and investments have improved to $4.5 million at
year end fiscal 2011.

Management states the continued operating loss is primarily due to
declining patient volumes, an increase in uninsured patients
utilizing various healthcare services, and unfavorable changes to
SJHS's payor mix. Overall, the main driver behind SJHS's poor
performance continues to be the poor service area.  A softened
local service economy continues to be a drag on SJHS's financial
performance and management anticipates this to continue for some
time.  Additionally, SJHS paid a large $2.9 million one-time
expense into the state's Medicaid DSH program in fiscal 2011,
which accounts for the sharp liquidity decline.

Additional negative credit factors include SJHS's poor debt
service coverage and ability to fund future capital expenditures.
Management stated that with such low liquidity, only emergency
capital needs would be funded. As of July 31, 2011, SJHS had a
high average age of plant of 16.5 years, which compared
unfavorably against Fitch's 'below investment grade' median of
12.3 years.

Since SJHS's affiliation with Roger Williams Medical Center in
2010, various consolidation efforts have taken place. Management
expects to see further consolidation of clinical services, which
should realize additional cost savings for the organization.
Management has a short-term breakeven goal for operations, which
Fitch would view as a major milestone.

Outstanding Debt Profile:
SJHS has a very conservative debt profile with 100% fixed-rate
bonds and no outstanding swaps.


R.L. ADKINS: Converts Involuntary Case to Chapter 11 Proceeding
---------------------------------------------------------------
Jaime Adame at reporternews says Dick Harris, the attorney
representing R.L. Adkins Corp., said the Company's involuntary
bankruptcy petition filed in federal court converted to Chapter 11
bankruptcy proceeding.

Mr. Adame says a trustee has been appointed to oversee the
Company.

According to the report, several oil and gas service companies
filed the involuntary petition in July, seeking nearly $500,000 in
what they claimed were unpaid debts.

The report relates that the company in August listed its 20
largest creditors, with claims totaling more than $10.5 million,
including a $4.54 million business loan claim by TESG1, an
Indianapolis, Indiana-based entity.

The report notes a related company, Adkins Supply Inc., filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy in federal court in September, citing
creditors that include the Internal Revenue Service, which is owed
more than $800,000, as well as a claim of about $568,000 from
Breckenridge, Texas-based Badger Oilfield Service& Supply.

R.L. Adkins Corp. -- http://www.rladkinscorp.com/-- operates an
oil company that explores oil and gas through out West Texas and
North Texas.

Sweetwater, Texas-based Adkins Supply Inc. filed for Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.11-10353) on Sept. 16, 2011.
Judge Robert L. Jones presides over the case.  Max Ralph Tarbox,
Esq., at Tarbox Law P.C., represents the Debtor.  The Debtor
estimated both assets and debts to be between $1 million and $10
million.


ROBERT KEITH MILLER: Court Junks Suit Over Noise Ordinance
----------------------------------------------------------
Robert Keith Miller, the owner of the Sacred Spur Ranch in East
Mountain, Upshur County, Texas, sued the city of East Mountain, a
small municipality with about 700 residents, on Jan. 29, 2010,
seeking relief pursuant to 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983.  Mr. Miller
alleges that his constitutional rights have been violated by the
selective enforcement and enactment of a noise ordinance,
resulting in the deprivation of his property rights without due
process of law.  Further, Mr. Miller alleges that his business has
been singled out for criminal prosecution and that the ordinance
is unconstitutionally vague.

On June 10, 2011, the city of East Mountain, Mayor Ronnie Hill and
Police Chief Jeff Pearson filed a Motion for Summary Judgment.
The Defendants assert that they are entitled to judgment on Mr.
Miller's selective enforcement, unconstitutional taking and due
process claims, and that the ordinance is not unconstitutionally
vague. Further, the Defendants contend that the Plaintiff has not
suffered damages resulting from their actions.  Finally, Messrs.
Hill and Pearson assert that they are entitled to qualified
immunity.  On June 17, 2011, Mr. Miller sought a partial summary
judgment finding that the noise ordinance is unconstitutional.

In an Oct. 14, 2011 Memorandum Opinion and Order, available at
http://is.gd/nMSsb7from Leagle.com, Magistrate Judge Judith K.
Guthrie held that there are no genuine issues of material fact and
the Defendants are entitled to judgment as a matter of law.  The
noise ordinance is not unconstitutionally vague.  Further, the
ordinance is content neutral and narrowly tailored to serve a
legitimate government objective.  The judge said the Plaintiff has
not established a standard equal protection claim.  The disputed
facts asserted by the Plaintiff concern whether Mayor Hill and
Police Chief Pearson acted with the desire to shut down the
Plaintiff's business.  The Plaintiff has not shown, however, that
such alleged personal vindictiveness is sufficient to establish a
selective prosecution or enforcement claim.  While the Plaintiff
may believe he has been treated unfairly, he has not shown that
the alleged unfair treatment amounts to a constitutional
violation.  Even if the Court were to find in the case that
personal vindictiveness is sufficient to support a claim for
selective prosecution, the law is not clearly established and
Messrs. Hill and Pearson are entitled to qualified immunity.

Judge Guthrie granted the Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment
and denied the Plaintiff's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment.
The Pretrial Conference scheduled for Oct. 24, 2011, and the Jury
Selection and Trial scheduled for Oct. 25, 2011 are canceled.

The case is Robert Keith Miller v. City of East Mountain, Texas,
et al., Civil Action No. 6:10CV21 (E.D. Tex.).

SAGAMORE PARTNERS: Obtains Court Okay to Use Hotel Revenues
-----------------------------------------------------------
Sagamore Partners Ltd. won interim Court permission to use cash
collateral securing obligations to its prepetition lender to fund
its operations while in bankruptcy.

The Court will hold a final hearing on the Debtor's request on
Nov. 10, 2011, at 2:30 p.m. in Miami.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor owed $31.5 million to JPMCC
2006-LDP7 Miami Beach Lodging LLC.  LNR Partners Inc. is the sole
manager of the secured lender and the special servicer for the
loan.  The loan was originally provided by Arbor Realty Funding
LLC and ended up with JPMCC 2006-LDP7 through a series of
transactions.  The secured lender has a first priority, perfected
lien on all of the Debtor's cash generated from the operation,
sale, disposition or other realization of any assets or property
of the Debtor, which constitutes cash collateral.

The Debtor believes the Sagamore Hotel and underlying real
property is valued at $55 million, subject to appraisal.

Sagamore Partners said absent the ability to use cash collateral,
its operations will come to a halt, the value of the assets will
dramatically decline and creditors and parties-in-interest will be
severely prejudiced.

The Interim Order provides that the Debtor's authority to use cash
collateral will terminate on the earliest of, among other
conditions:

     a) Nov. 12, 2011;

     b) the Debtor's failure to deposit on a daily basis all cash
        receipts and collections from whatever source in the
        prepetition lockbox account maintained by the Secured
        Lender for such purposes at Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.,
        consistent with the prepetition agreement and practices of
        the parties;

     c) the Debtor's failure to make any adequate protection
        payment to the Secured Lender; and

     d) the dismissal of the case.

As additional protection, the Debtor will make an interest payment
to the Secured Lender, calculated at the contract rate of 6.54%,
based on the outstanding principal amount of the Prepetition
Obligations.

Objections to the Debtor's request to use cash collateral on a
final basis are due Nov. 8, 2011, which must also be served to
Scott L. Baena, Esq. -- sbaena@bilzin.com -- at Bilzin Sumberg
Baena Price & Axelrod LLP in Miami.

The Debtor also obtained permission to pay prepetition amounts
owed to so-called critical vendors, namely Florida Fabric & D‚cor
(curtains), Premier Beverage, Southern Wine & Spirits, and Sysco
Food Services (food and wine), and Muse Beauty Suite (spa services
provided to hotel guests).

SANITARY AND IMPROVEMENT: Files Chapter 9 Plan of Adjustment
------------------------------------------------------------
Sanitary and Improvement District No. 258 of Sarpy County,
Nebraska, has filed its plan of adjustment under Chapter 9 of the
Bankruptcy Code.

The classes and treatment of creditors under the plan are:

     A. The Holders of Administrative and Priority Claims will be
        paid in full.  The Administrative and Priority Claims
        currently consist of expenses for services rendered by the
        District's bankruptcy legal counsel, Croker, Huck, Kasher,
        De Witt, Anderson & Gonderinger, L.L.C., of Omaha,
        Nebraska.  Croker Huck will be paid based upon hourly
        rates for partners, associates, paralegals, legal
        assistants and administrators, at standard rates for
        these particular services.

     B. The owners of the General Fund Warrants will be paid
        principal and accrued interest in full.  Payment of
        General Fund Warrants is necessary for the continuation of
        basic necessities of the District, including basic
        utilities and reasonable property maintenance
        expenditures.  Within 60 days of the Effective Date, the
        owners of General Fund Warrants will be paid in full for
        all accrued and unpaid interest or principal due and owing
        under the terms of the General Fund Warrants.  Thereafter,
        General Fund Warrants will be paid in accordance with the
        stated terms.  The owners of General Fund Warrants will be
        paid in full and are not impaired.

     C. The claims of the Holders of Prepetition Construction Fund
        Warrants are impaired.  Pre-petition Construction Fund
        Warrant Holders will be paid as follows:

        1. Initial Cash Disbursement: Within 120 days following
           the Effective Date, all funds held in the Construction
           Fund will be allocated.  All funds not allocated will
           be paid to the Class A Bond Holders based on the Pro
           Rata Share of each.

        2. Issuance of Bonds and Certificates of Indebtedness:
           Within 60 days of the Effective Date, all Pre-petition
           Construction Fund Warrant Holders will be issued Class
           A Bonds, conditional upon the delivery of Pre-petition
           Construction Fund Warrant.  All Pre-petition
           Construction Fund Warrants will be held by the
           Disbursing Agent in trust for each Pre-petition
           Construction Fund Warrant Holder until cancelled by the
           issuance of the Class A Bonds.  All Pre-petition
           Construction Fund Warrants which have been delivered to
           the Disbursing Agent will be cancelled upon the
           issuance of the Class A Bonds.  In exchange for their
           Pre-petition Construction Fund Warrants, each holder
           will be given a Class A Bond issued by the District and
           authenticated by the Disbursing Agent.

        C. Modification of Terms: The balance due on the Pre-
           petition Construction Fund Warrants and the manner of
           computed interest on the warrants will not change by
           operation of the Plan.  The Plan will only modify the
           manner and time line for repayment of the Pre-petition
           Construction Fund Warrants.

This Plan requires, and the Bankruptcy Court will be requested as
part of the Confirming Order to require, the Holders of Pre-
petition Construction Fund Warrants to deliver to the Disbursing
Agent any Pre-petition Construction Fund Warrants held by any
Creditor.  No Class A Bond will be issued nor will any payment be
made to the Holder of any Pre-petition Construction Fund Warrant
unless said Holder has delivered to the Disbursing Agent the
physical Pre-petition Construction Fund Warrant issued by the
District or, in the event that the Pre-petition Construction Fund
Warrant is lost or destroyed, an Affidavit of Lost or Destroyed
Security and Indemnification thereon.  Each Pre-petition
Construction Fund Warrant Holder will deliver the warrants to the
Disbursing Agent for exchange into a Class A Bond not less than
30 days after the Effective Date.

If not so delivered the Pre-petition Construction Fund Warrant
will be cancelled and terminated.  In exchange for Pre-petition
Construction Fund Warrant, the Disbursing Agent shall issue to the
creditor having provided the Pre-petition Construction Fund
Warrant to the Disbursing Agent, or to the creditor's assignee, a
Class A Bond in the face amount of the Pre-Petition Construction
Fund Warrant delivered by the Creditor, plus any accrued and
unpaid interest thereon.  The Disbursing Agent will maintain
possession of the Class A Bond and a statement of the amount due
under the Class A Bond will be provided to the Holder.

The Class A Bonds and Class B Certificates issued pursuant to this
Plan will bear clear and unequivocal language identifying that
both are (i) subject to the payment terms set forth in the Plan,
(ii) are not guaranteed to pay full interest or return principal
face value, and (iii) are not subject to guarantee under Neb. Rev.
Stat. Section 31-755.  The Bonds will not accrue interest and the
Certificates will accrue simple interest at a rate of 7% annually.

In order to ensure that a Pre-petition Construction Fund Warrant
Holder cannot continue to hold Pre-petition Construction Fund
Warrants with a view towards redemption, any and all outstanding
warrants not delivered to the Disbursing Agent prior to the 30th
day after the Effective Date shall be deemed cancelled and
terminated and of no further force and effect.

SBARRO INC: Wants Plan Filing Deadline Extended to Dec. 30
----------------------------------------------------------
Sbarro Inc. and its debtor-affiliates ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York to extend their
exclusive periods to:

   a) file a Chapter 11 plan until Dec. 30, 2011, and

   b) solicit acceptances of that plan until Feb. 29, 2012.

Absent of an extension, the Debtors' current plan filing deadline
will expire on Oct. 31, 2011.

A hearing is set for Oct. 31, 2011, at 11:00 a.m., to consider the
Debtors' request for extension.  Objection, if any, are due Oct.

of their disclosure statement and have commenced soliciting of
votes on their proposed chapter 11 plan.  The Debtors' plan, which
is sponsored by certain of its prepetition first lien lenders and
debtor-in-possession lenders and supported by the unsecured
creditors' committee, significantly reduces Sbarro's existing debt
and ensures the company will have access to favorable financing
and additional liquidity to support their go-forward business
needs.

The Debtors tells the Court that a hearing to consider
confirmation of their plan is scheduled for Nov. 17, 2011, and the
Debtors expect to emerge from chapter 11 protection shortly

any issues that may arise in connection with the confirmation
process in an orderly manner and without disruption from competing
plans

SEQUENOM INC: Sequenom CMM Launches MaterniT21 LDT
--------------------------------------------------
Sequenom, Inc., on Oct. 17, 2011, through the Company's wholly-
owned subsidiary, Sequenom Center for Molecular Medicine, LLC, or
Sequenom CMM, announced the commercial launch of its non-invasive
proprietary MaterniT21 laboratory developed test, or LDT.  The
MaterniT21 LDT is used to assess pregnant women who are at high
risk of carrying a fetus with a trisomy 21 abnormality by
measuring an overabundance of chromosome 21 relative to the amount
of other chromosomes in a blood sample.  The MaterniT21 LDT is now
available to physicians upon request in 20 major metropolitan
regions across the United States.

The MaterniT21 LDT is indicated for use in pregnant women at high
risk for carrying a child with Down syndrome and can accurately
test maternal blood as early as 10 weeks of gestation.  In the
United States, there are an estimated 750,000 such high risk
pregnancies each year.

The process employed in the MaterniT21 LDT is analysis of cell-
free DNA extracted from maternal blood samples utilizing nucleic
acid sequencing, known as massively parallel shotgun sequencing,
or MPSS.  The sample is shipped to the Sequenom CMM laboratory
where licensed laboratory personnel use proprietary methodologies
and MPSS sequencing technology to measure the amount of chromosome
21 relative to the amount of other chromosomes.

The testing methodology was evaluated for sensitivity and
specificity against a total of 212 Down syndrome samples and 1,484
matched samples from unaffected pregnancies.  In the initial round
of uncorrected blinded analysis, the test identified 209 of the
212 cases of Down syndrome (98.6% accuracy), with three false
positives (0.2%) and three false negatives.  In a corrected
blinded analysis, with the use of chromosome 21 z-scores adjusted
for GC content and flow-cell variability, a method consistent with
the MaterniT21 commercial version of the test, the test correctly
identified 210 of the 212 samples (99.1% accuracy), with just one
false positive and two false negatives.

The samples will be processed at Sequenom CMM's CAP accredited and
CLIA-certified laboratory, where the MaterniT21 LDT was developed
and validated.  Physicians are expected to receive testing results
in about 8-10 business days on average.

The out-of-pocket cost of the test for insured patients will be no
more than $235.  Sequenom CMM will initially operate as an out-of-
network provider to ensure eligible patients will have coverage
for the test.  While negotiating to ensure coverage by major
private insurance programs, the reimbursement for the test is
expected to be similar to that of current invasive procedures like
amniocentesis or CVS.

Sequenom, Inc. (NASDAQ: SQNM) -- http://www.sequenom.com/-- is a
life sciences company committed to improving healthcare through

million in total assets, $30.97 million in total liabilities and
$125.90 million in total stockholders' equity.

Ernst & Young LLP of San Diego, California, in its audit report
attached to the 2010 financial statements, did not include a going
concern qualification for Sequenom.  E&Y, in its report on the
2009 results, expressed substantial doubt against Sequenom's
ability as a going concern, noting that the Company "has incurred
recurring operating losses and does not have sufficient working
capital to fund operations through 2010."

SOLYNDRA LLC: Republican Lawmaker Questions Investor's Tax Breaks

Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that a lawmaker on

SOLYNDRA LLC: In Talks With 25 Potential Bidders
------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that Solyndra LLC is
talking to some 25 potential buyers of its solar panel
manufacturing business as it limps along under fire from
Republicans in Congress over $527 million in federal loans,
company officials said.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 17, 2011, Dow
Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review said that Solyndra LLC says
that a bid to put an outsider in control of the embattled solar
company threatens the manufacturer's hope of survival by repelling
bidders that might buy and restart the company's shuttered
California factory.

A TCR report on Oct. 13, 2011, Bankruptcy Law360 said that an
industrial equipment manufacturer asked a Delaware bankruptcy
judge to put the brakes on Solyndra Inc.'s planned Oct. 27 asset
sale until the company makes good on a $12.7 million bill for
manufacturing equipment it allegedly agreed to return.  In a suit
filed Oct. 10, VDL Enabling Technologies Group Eindhoven BV claims
Solyndra, which received court approval for the hotly contested
sale last month, signed a nontransferable software license
agreement when it hired VDL in 2009 to manufacture glass tubing
equipment, according to Law360.

SOLYNDRA LLC: Avoids Having Trustee Take Over Management
--------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Solyndra LLC escaped from a hearing Oct. 17 without
having a Chapter 11 trustee appointed to oust management.
Instead, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Mary F. Walrath accepted the solar
panel maker's recommendation and authorized appointment of
turnaround manager R. Todd Neilson to serve as chief restructuring
officer.

Mr. Rochelle relates that the U.S. Trustee sought appointment of a
trustee one week after Solyndra's chief executive and chief
financial officer asserted their Fifth Amendment privileges and
declined to answer questions posed by a congressional committee.
Since then, Chief Executive Officer Brian Harrison left the
company.  Chief Financial Officer Wilbur G. Stover Jr. remains.

Peg Brickley, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reports that Judge Walrath found no cause for the appointment of a
trustee in the Chapter 11 case filed by the maker of solar-energy
panels.  "I thought in America you're innocent until proven
guilty," Judge Walrath commented at the hearing, according to DBR.
The judge said she had seen no evidence of fraud, dishonesty,
incompetence or gross mismanagement by the leaders of the
embattled company.

Mr. Neilson, Mr. Rochelle notes, is experienced with taking over
companies faced with allegations of fraud.  He served in a similar
capacity in the Chapter 11 case of beverage maker Le-Nature's
Inc., whose former CEO pleaded guilty to charges of masterminding
an $800 million fraud.

Mr. Neilson is with Berkeley Research Group.

DBR notes that Judge Walrath's ruling also means the auction of
Solyndra's assets will likely be pushed from October to November,
a concession from relieved lenders.

"This is not a political issue. This is a financial issue," Mr.
Neilson said in an interview, according to DBR.  The field of
potential buyers includes candidates from five different
countries, said Eric Carlson of Imperial Capital, Solyndra's
investment banker, DBR notes.

SOUTH EDGE: JPMorgan Wins Court Nod to Oust Squire Sanders
----------------------------------------------------------
Kaitlin Ugolik at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that JPMorgan Chase
Bank NA on Friday succeeded in disqualifying Squire Sanders &
Dempsey LLP from representing developer South Edge LLC in its
bankruptcy proceedings when a Nevada federal judge agreed that the
firm's simultaneous representation of the bank in other matters
presented a conflict, according to a source.

Law360 says JPMorgan blasted Meritage Homes Corp.'s bid to keep
SSD as counsel for South Edge's bankruptcy early Friday, saying
the homebuilder's defense of an alleged conflict of interest
"strains the bounds of credulity."

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 14, 2011,
Jacqueline Palank, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
said that the law firm of Squire, Sanders & Dempsey wants to
withdraw from representing one of Inspirada's home builders,
Meritage Homes Corp., but it needs the home builder's permission
to walk away.  However, Squire Sanders says the builder won't let
it.

DBR reported that Squire Sanders on Tuesday asked the Bankruptcy
Court to "provide the parties with direction in order to resolve
this dispute."   The law firm said it will "abide by the direction
of the court."

According to DBR, Squire Sanders was hired by Meritage on Aug. 30.
Last week, one of Inspirada's lenders and Squire Sanders' client,
J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., asked the firm to withdraw from
representing Meritage due to conflict of interest.  JPMorgan and
Meritage are involved in multimillion-dollar lawsuits over the
housing development.  JPMorgan is among the proponents of the
project's restructuring plan while Meritage is opposing that plan.

According to DBR, Squire Sanders "represents J.P. Morgan in
transaction matters and at least one litigation matter. It
represents a client challenging confirmation of the joint plan
making arguments as direct as an assertion that J.P. Morgan is not
acting in good faith," the bank said. "This is an actual
conflict."

However, Squire Sanders said Meritage not only refused its consent
to the withdrawal but said it would also tell J.P. Morgan to drop
it.

DBR related JPMorgan on Oct. 11 filed its own motion asking the
Court to disqualify the law firm from representing Meritage and
bar Meritage from using any of Squire Sanders's "work product."

creditors are part of a lender group that provided a $595 million
credit.  New York-based JPMorgan serves as lender and agent for
the group.  South Edge filed motions to dismiss the involuntary
petition.

The Court conducted a contested trial on Jan. 24 and 25, 2011, and
Feb. 2 and 3, 2011.  On Feb. 3, 2011, the Court entered an order
for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code against the
Debtor and issued an order directing the appointment of a chapter
11 trustee.  The United States Trustee appointed Cynthia Nelson to
serve as Chapter 11 trustee on Feb. 20, 2011.  The Court approved
the appointment three days later.

South Edge is represented by lawyers at Klee, Tuchin, Bogdanoff
and Stern LLP, and The Schwartz Law Firm, Inc., as legal counsel.
The Chapter 11 trustee also tapped Schwartzer & McPherson Law Firm
as local counsel.

Bank, N.A., are represented by lawyers at Morrison and Foerster
LLP; and Lewis and Roca LLP.  Credit Agricole is represented by

SOUTHEAST REGENCY: Court Dismisses Chapter 11 Case
--------------------------------------------------
Judge H. Christopher Mott of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Texas dismissed the bankruptcy case of
Southeast Regency Medical Center, LP.

The Bankruptcy Court retains jurisdiction on the pending adversary
proceeding no. 10-0114-hcm; City National Bank vs. Pearland
Sunrise Lake Center L.P., et al; involving multiple Pearland
entities.

The Court further orders that the Debtor will pay the U.S. Trustee
the sum of $4,875 for that amount being owed pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
Section 1930 for the third quarter of 2011.  Quarterly fees will
continue to accrue until the case is closed, dismissed or
converted.

The July 29, 2011 edition of the Troubled Company Reporter
disclosed that Judy A. Robbins, the U.S. Trustee for Region 7,
asked the Court for the dismissal or conversion of the Debtor's
case into a Chapter 7 liquidation proceeding because Debtor has
not filed complete and accurate monthly operating reports on a
regular basis.  The U.S. Trustee said that without operating
reports, parties-in-interest do not know whether Debtor is paying
its postpetition obligations as they come due, whether Debtor is
accruing administrative expenses, and whether Debtor is generating
positive cash flow such that it will be able to fund a plan out of
future earnings.  The U.S. Trustee added that the last filed
report, in April 2011, indicates that there is no operating
activity in the Debtor's case.

STEPHEN PAUL WALLACE: May Proceed With Lawsuit In Forma Pauperis
----------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Audrey Fleissig granted Stephen Paul Wallace leave
to proceed with his lawsuit against Robert T. Bruegge, et al., in
forma pauperis, finding that he is financially unable to pay any
portion of the filing fee.

The complaint caption reads, in part: "(1) Stephen Paul Wallace,
individually, and as (2) Private Attorney General, ex rel; United
States of America, Plaintiffs."  Although Mr. Wallace is
attempting to join the United States Attorney General as a party-
plaintiff to the action, he has no right to do this.  As such, the
Court removed the "Private Attorney General" as a plaintiff.

Mr. Wallace brings the action for monetary and injunctive relief
against Robert T. Bruegge (attorney), Patrick J. Malloy, III
(trust attorney), John Doe, and Richard Roe, stating, inter alia,
that (1) in 1990, he and his mother, Lorice T. Wallace, were
successor co-trustees of their family's forty million dollar
estate; (2) in June 2000, Bank of America was appointed as
Lorice's successor trustee; however, the appointment was
"illicitly quashed in the sham probate court which
embezzled/confiscated all of Lorice's property & liquid assets";
(3) in September 2001, plaintiff "did sacrifice himself for his
family by filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Reorganization, solely
to compel the `Coup Klan' to produce an accounting of the `unique
and irreplaceable large remaining tracts of realty including the
Wallace Family extensive oil and gas reserves'"; (4) in 2003,
Lorice died "due to the covert overdosing . . . with Depakote by
the 'Coup Klan,'" and the estate's funds were "embezzled/
confiscate[d]"; and (5) the Coup Klan "sanitiz[ed] and destroy[ed]
all documents, pleadings, evidence, [and] adversary proceedings"
relative to plaintiff's bankruptcy case.  Mr. Wallace alleges
"Enron type criminal financial fraud," "criminal collusion," the
violation of his constitutional rights under 42 U.S.C. Sec.
1985(2), and the "criminal confiscation of all [his] 'unique and
irreplaceable commercial realty developments.'"  In addition, he
asserts state-law claims for breach of contract, fraud,
embezzlement, breach of fiduciary duty, detrimental reliance,
conversion, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and
tortious interference of contract.

The case is, STEPHEN PAUL WALLACE, et al., v. ROBERT T. BRUEGGE,
et al., No. 4:11-CV-955-AGF (E.D. Mo.).  A copy of Judge
Fleissig's Oct. 14, 2011 Memorandum and Order is available at

TEMPLE BETH: Files for Bankruptcy to Avert Foreclosure
------------------------------------------------------
Temple Beth Sholom of Corona Inc. filed for Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No.11-34883) on Aug. 2, 2011, to avoid
foreclosure of its new synagogue.

According to an article by Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Center P.A., the
congregation is trying to fend off foreclosure with California
Bank & Trust, which holds a loan balance of $1.6 million.

According to the article, Temple secretary Sam Miller said the
synagogue's financial problems stem from the economic recession
and a lower than expected growth in number of members.  "Before
the economy crashed, we would have been in excellent shape.  There
would have been no problem at all," Mr. Miller said.  "We just
didn?t get new members as we anticipated.  The economy caused
people to put their wallets in their back pockets."

The article relates the Temple has seen membership dwindle after
several members left the 75 member congregation while others
stopped paying their membership dues after hearing that the
synagogue might be liquidated.

According to the article, Mr. Miller said some congregation
members were skeptical of whether the synagogue had the financial
means to build its $1.5 million temple that included the temple
sanctuary, school, office, library and kitchen in a 4,500-square-
foot building that opened in April, 2009. "They thought it was
risky.  It turned out that they were right but for the wrong
reasons, the economy crashed," Mr. Miller said.  "We got into
trouble on this."

The article notes the building project came about when the
congregation outgrew its previous building on West 9th and South
Sheridan streets.  The age of the dingy building was a turn-off to
new potential members, so the board sold the property in 2000.
When the new temple was launched, membership doubled but it was
not as much as anticipated and by August 2009, the Temple was in
financial distress.

Tampa Bay Bankruptcy adds the Temple owes the city of Corona
$43,203 through a redevelopment loan.  In addition it owes $38,802
for 52 cemetery plots.  Among their assets is a timeshare in
Mexico worth $15,800.

The congregation was originally formed in 1968.


TERRA-GEN FINANCE: Fitch Rates $250-Mil. Loan Facility at 'BB-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a rating of 'BB-' to Terra-Gen Finance,
LLC's (Terra-Gen) $250 million term loan facility and $60 million
working capital facility.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.  Fitch
previously assigned an expected rating of 'BB-' to Terra-Gen's
loan facilities on May 6, 2011.

The loan facilities are secured by a first-priority security
interest in Terra-Gen's accounts, ownership interests and project
dividends.

Fitch views the final terms of the issuance, which closed June 22,
2011, as consistent with information previously provided by Terra-
Gen. Fitch notes that the amount of the term loan facility has
decreased to $250 million from the originally proposed $300
million. As a result, consolidated financial performance has
slightly improved but remains nearly identical to previous
projections because Terra-Gen's debt service obligations are
relatively low compared to debt service on a consolidated basis.

Terra-Gen is a special-purpose company formed solely to acquire,
own and operate a 1,236 MW portfolio consisting of 22 projects,
primarily located in California, that generate power using
renewable resources.  Nearly 90% of the portfolio's nominal
capacity is committed to SCE under various medium- and long-term
PPAs.  The proceeds of the issuance were used to fully repay pre-
existing indebtedness, fund a cash distribution to the sponsors,
cash-fund three months of interest within the nine-month debt
service reserve, and pay transaction fees and expenses.


THELEN LLP: Ex-Partners Object to Chapter 7 Trustee's $5MM Deals
----------------------------------------------------------------
Carolina Bolado at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that fifteen former
partners of Thelen LLP filed objections Monday and Tuesday to the
Company's Chapter 7 trustee's settlements worth $5 million with 93
former partners over compensation they received in the firm's last
years.

According to Law360, the former partners are asking the New York
bankruptcy court to deny the trustee's request for settlement
approval, calling the deal's third-party release language overly
broad and claiming a most favored claims provision in the
settlement will have a chilling effect on the trustee's
negotiations with other partners.

                      About Thelen LLP

Thelen LLP, formerly known as Thelen Reid Brown Raysman & Steiner
-- http://thelen.com/-- is a bicoastal American law firm in
process of dissolution.  It was formed as a product between two
mergers between California and New York-based law firms, mostly
recently in 2006.  Its headcount peaked at roughly 600 attorneys
in 2006, and had 500 early in 2008, with offices in eight cities
in the United States, England and China.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 22, 2009,
Thelen LLP filed for Chapter 7 protection, after its partnership
agreed to dissolve the Company.  The filing was expected due to
the timing of a writ of attachment filed by one of Thelen's
landlords, entitling the landlord to $25 million of the Company's
assets.  The landlord won approval for that writ in June 2009, but
Thelen could void the writ by filing for bankruptcy within 90 days
of that court ruling.  Thelen, according to AM Law Daily, has
repaid most of its debt to its lending banks.

VERTUE INC: Moody's Cuts Corporate Family Rating to 'Caa2'
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Vertrue Incorporated's
Corporate Family (CFR) and Probability of Default Ratings to Caa2
from B3. Simultaneously, Moody's downgraded Vertrue's first lien
revolver and term loan to B3 from B1 and the second lien term loan
to Caa3 from Caa2. The ratings outlook remains negative.

Ratings Rationale

The Caa2 CFR reflects Vertrue's weak liquidity profile, high
financial leverage, and declining revenue and earnings. As of
June 30, 2011, Vertrue reported $16 million of cash on its balance
sheet, most of which is needed to run daily operations.
Additionally, the revolver was fully drawn with no remaining
availability. Given the recent earnings decline and resulting
increase in financial leverage, Moody's believes Vertrue's capital
structure may be unsustainable.

In the first half of 2011, Vertrue's consolidated revenues fell
17% from a declining member base. Free cash flow was negative,
even before consideration of cash used for a lawsuit and to obtain
a covenant amendment. Moody's does not expect free cash flow to
turn positive in the near-term unless Vertrue reduces its
marketing spending. However, a further reduction in marketing
would likely lead to lower future revenues and have a negative
impact on medium term earnings and cash flow. The ratings are also
constrained by a heightened level of litigation risk, given recent
intense public and political scrutiny and lawsuits over the use of
private consumer information by internet-related information
companies.

The negative outlook reflects Moody's expectation that
consolidated revenue and earnings will decline materially over the
near-term, causing financial leverage (debt/EBITDA) to exceed 7
times by the end of 2011. The total leverage covenant contained in
the first lien credit agreement is scheduled to step-down several
times to 6.75 times by June 2012, making Vertrue's ability to
comply with this covenant difficult.

Vertrue's ratings could be further downgraded if its operating
performance or liquidity continues to weaken or if the company is
subjected to additional unfavorable lawsuit judgments. Given the
company's weak liquidity profile and revenue trends, an upgrade is
unlikely in the near term. Over the medium term, a strong rebound
in revenue and EBITDA that results in adequate liquidity and a
sustainable capital structure could result in an upgrade.

Moody's took the following rating actions on Vertrue Incorporated
(and adjusted LGD point estimates):

Corporate Family Rating, to Caa2 from B3

Probability of Default Rating, to Caa2 from B3

$30 million 1st lien revolver expiring August 2013, to B3 (LGD2,
29%) from B1 (LGD2, 28%)

$351 (originally $430) million 1st lien term loan due 2014, to B3
(LGD2, 29%) from B1 (LGD2, 28%)

$200 million 2nd lien term loan due 2015, to Caa3 (LGD5, 82%)
from Caa2 (LGD5, 81%)

The principal methodology used in rating Vertrue Incorporated was
the Global Business and Consumer Services Methodology published in
June 2011. Other methodologies used include Loss Given Default for
Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and
EMEA published in June 2009.

Vertrue Incorporated, headquartered in Norwalk, Connecticut, is an
internet marketing services company. The company markets its
services through internet marketing, inbound call marketing,
television and newspaper advertising, direct mail and outbound
telemarketing. Vertrue has been owned by private equity sponsors
One Equity Partners, Rho Ventures and Brencourt Advisors since
2007. Revenues were approximately $546 million for the twelve
months ending June 30, 2011.

WASHINGTON MUTUAL: Court Approves Insurance Policies Motion
-----------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court issued
an order authorizing (I) Washington Mutual (WMI) to surrender and
terminate certain insurance policies and (II) the distribution of
the policy proceeds.

According to the motion, "Surrendering the Policies would lead to
the monetization of approximately $57.8 million, ensuring that
such funds are readily available for distribution to WMI's
creditors upon confirmation of a chapter 11 plan. Moreover,
surrendering the Policies at this time would result in a total
$881,336.46 of insurance charges being credited back to the
Policies' Accumulated Value."


                    About Washington Mutual

Based in Seattle, Washington, Washington Mutual Inc. --
http://www.wamu.com/-- was the holding company for Washington
Mutual Bank as well as numerous non-bank subsidiaries.

Washington Mutual Bank was taken over on Sept. 25, 2008, by U.S.
government regulators. The next day, WaMu and its affiliate, WMI
Investment Corp., filed separate petitions for Chapter 11 relief
(Bankr. D. Del. 08-12229 and 08-12228, respectively). WaMu owns
100% of the equity in WMI Investment. When WaMu filed for
protection from its creditors, it disclosed assets of
$32,896,605,516 and debts of $8,167,022,695. WMI Investment
estimated assets of $500 million to $1 billion with zero debts.

WaMu is represented by Brian Rosen, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal &
Manges LLP in New York City; Mark D. Collins, Esq., at Richards,
Layton & Finger P.A. in Wilmington, Del.; and Peter Calamari,
Esq., and David Elsberg, Esq., at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver &
Hedges, LLP. The Debtor tapped Valuation Research Corporation as
valuation service provider for certain assets.

Fred S. Hodara, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Fled LLP in New
York, and David B. Stratton, Esq., at Pepper Hamilton LLP in
Wilmington, Del., represent the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors. Stephen D. Susman, Esq., at Susman Godfrey LLP and
William P. Bowden, Esq., at Ashby & Geddes, P.A., represent the
Equity Committee. The official committee of equity security
holders also tapped BDO USA as its tax advisor. Stacey R.
Friedman, Esq., at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and Adam G. Landis,
Esq., at Landis Rath & Cobb LLP in Wilmington, Del., represent
JPMorgan Chase, which acquired the WaMu bank unit's assets prior
to the Petition Date.

On Jan. 7, 2011, the Bankruptcy Court entered a 107-page opinion
determining that the global settlement agreement, among certain
parties including WMI, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
and JPMorgan, upon which the Plan is premised, and the
transactions contemplated therein, are fair, reasonable, and in
the best interests of WMI. However, the Opinion and related order
denied confirmation, but suggested certain modifications to the
Company's Sixth Amended Joint Plan of Affiliated Debtors that, if
made, would facilitate confirmation.

WaMu filed a Modified Sixth Amended Joint Plan and a related
Supplemental Disclosure Statement, which it believes would address
the Bankruptcy Court's concerns.

On Sept. 13, 2011, Judge Walrath denied confirmation of WaMu's
Modified Sixth Amended Plan and granted equity committee standing
to prosecute claims for equitable disallowance but stayed the
ruling pending mediation.

Judge Walrath scheduled a status hearing for Oct. 7, 2011, at
11:30 a.m. to consider the issues to be referred to a mediator.

WaMu said it would seek confirmation of a revised plan "as soon as
practicable."

The Plan proposes to pay more than $7 billion to creditors and
incorporates a global settlement agreement resolving issues among
the Debtors, JPMorgan Chase, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
in its corporate capacity and as receiver for WaMu Bank, certain
large creditors, certain WMB senior noteholders, and the
creditors' committee. The Settlement Noteholders are Appaloosa
Management, L.P., Aurelius Capital Management LP, Centerbridge
Partners, LP, and Owl Creek Asset Management, L.P.


WESTERN COMMS: Has Until Nov. 15 to File Plan of Reorganization
---------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Oregon extended
until Nov. 15, 2011, Western Communications, Inc.'s time to file a
proposed plan of reorganization and explanatory disclosure
statement.

persons holding unsecured claims against Western Communications
have expressed interest in serving on a committee.


WILLARD FRAZIER: Court Defers Ruling on Usurious Loan
-----------------------------------------------------
Principals of a company that loaned funds to Willard H. Frazier,
Jr., may be penalized for executing the loan under their name
instead of the company's, and at usurious rate.

Ami Hower is a licensed California Finance Lender broker. Her
husband, Robert, is not a licensee.  They are the principals in a
California corporation known as It's a Jungle Out There, doing
business as Vintage Capital.  Prior to Mr. Frazier's Chapter 11
filing, the Howers, through IAJOT, agreed to make Mr. Frazier a
secured 90-day loan of $192,747.  The terms of the loan were
usurious under California law for anyone who was not a California
Licensed Lender pursuant to the California Finance Lenders Law,
Cal.Fin.C. Sec. 22000 et seq.

Although IAJOT was an active commercial lender and it used a title
company it had regularly used and a title officer who had handled
numerous escrows in relation to IAJOT loans, somehow the loan
documents were drawn up identifying the Howers as the lenders
personally.  The Howers knew that Mr. Frazier was traveling to
Europe and that he needed to have the loan funds immediately to
avoid property tax penalties. The Howers say that they instructed
the escrow officer to draft new documents, but that at the
pleading of Mr. Frazier they agreed to close on the documents he
had already signed as long as Mr. Frazier agreed that the loan was
from IAJOT and not the Howers personally.

Despite the "mistake," the Howers never took any steps to assign
the note and deed of trust from them to IAJOT.  Instead, Ami Hower
says she made a self-serving internal memo, dated 4-8-09 on
Vintage Capital letterhead, reciting the "facts" and stating at
the end "$192.747.50 note assigned to corporation as it is a
corporate debt."  When it came time to foreclose, all paper work
was in the Howers' name as if they owned the note.

Mr. Frazier has objected to the Howers' proof of claim, on grounds
of usury.

Bankruptcy Judge Alan Jaroslovsky said the Howers made two serious
mistakes.  The first was drafting the memo of 4-8-09 instead of
correcting the "mistake" promptly and properly.  The second was in
thinking that Mr. Frazier's agreement in any way waived the usury
defense to the claim.

Judge Jaroslovsky noted that California usury laws were designed
to penalize lenders taking advantage of unwary and necessitous
borrowers.  California courts have regularly held that, absent
fraud on the part of the borrower, the parties are not in pari
delicto in a usurious transaction.  The lender may not assert an
estoppel against the borrower simply because the borrower took the
initiative in seeking the loan, knew of the usurious nature of the
transaction, and paid usurious interest without protest.  The
judge said Mr. Frazier's "acknowledgment" that the loan was an
IAJOT loan and not a personal loan from the Howers totally and
completely irrelevant.

Judge Jaroslovsky, however, declined to rule on the claim at this
point.  He noted that there is only one true issue, which is
whether, as a factual matter, there was a true mistake as opposed
to an attempt by the Howers to circumvent the California Finance
Lenders Law.  There are several factors which bring the "mistake"
argument into question, including the source of the funds, the
lack of proper correction of the "mistake," the fact that the
Howers commenced foreclosure under their own names and, most
crucially, how an experienced title officer who had who had
handled numerous escrows in relation to IAJOT loans could have
made such a fundamental error.  Resolution of this factual issue
requires a further hearing and live testimony, as credibility will
be a key factor, Judge Jaroslovsky said.

WISP RESORT: Files for Chapter 11 Protection
--------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that D.C. Development LLC, the owner of the Wisp Resort in
filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Md. Case No. 11-30548)
on Oct. 15 in Greenbelt, Maryland, along with affiliates.

The ski and golf resort is situated on 2,200 acres with two golf
courses, 32 ski trails, and 12 ski lifts.  The hotel has 102
suites and 67 guest rooms.

Court papers say the ski resort has performed "exceptionally
well."Financial problems were caused by a guarantee given to

WSP HOLDINGS: Posts $19.2 Million Net Loss in Q2 Ended June 30
--------------------------------------------------------------
WSP Holdings Limited announced on Oct. 11, 2011, its unaudited
financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

"The second quarter saw an overall increase in our revenues from
the first quarter of 2011, mainly due to an increase in sales of
API products in China.  Export sales also increased in the second
quarter of 2011 due to an increase in sales of non-API products to
Venezuela.  We are encouraged by the overall increase in our
revenues that resulted from increases in domestic and export
sales," commented Mr. Longhua Piao, the Chairman and CEO of WSP
Holdings.  "We expect to see a gradual increase in our export
sales of both API and non-API products to countries in South
America, Middle East and Central Asia as we continue to build upon
our success in these new international markets."

WSP Holdings reported revenues of $185.5 million in the second
quarter of 2011 compared to $131.2 million in the first quarter of
2011 mainly due to an increase in revenues generated from domestic
sales.  Domestic sales and international sales accounted for 57.5%
and 42.5%, respectively, of total revenues for the second quarter
of 2011.

Gross margin in the second quarter of 2011 was 3.6%, compared to
9.1% in the first quarter of 2011 and 5.6% in the second quarter
of 2010.  Lower quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year gross
margins were primarily due to an increase in raw material costs,
which resulted in higher costs of revenues in the second quarter
of 2011.

Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2011 were
$16.9 million, down 17.2% from $20.4 million in the first quarter
of 2011 and up 27.0% from $13.3 million in the second quarter of
2010.  Selling and marketing expenses were $6.1 million, compared
to $5.4 million in the first quarter of 2011 and $4.9 million in
the second quarter of 2010.  General and administrative expenses
were $10.9 million, compared to $15.5 million in the first quarter
of 2011 and $11.1 million in the second quarter of 2010.  The
quarter-over-quarter decrease in general and administrative
expenses was primarily due to a reduction of bad debt provision in
the second quarter of 2011.

Loss from operations was $10.1 million in the second quarter of
2011, compared to loss from operations of $8.5 million and
$5.8 million in the first quarter of 2011 and the second quarter
of 2010, respectively.

Net interest expense was $10.0 million in the second quarter of
2011, compared to $7.4 million in the first quarter of 2011 and
$6.9 million in the second quarter of 2010.  Higher year-over-year
net interest expense was mainly attributable to an increase in
borrowings and interest rate, and partially due to a reduction in
the capitalization of interest expense with the completion of
certain construction projects.

The Company recorded an income tax expense of $1.4 million in the
second quarter of 2011, compared to income tax benefit of $71,000
in the second quarter of 2010.

Net loss attributable to WSP Holdings was $19.2 million in the
second quarter of 2011, compared to net loss of $13.7 million and
$12.0 million in the first quarter of 2011 and the second quarter
of 2010, respectively.

                        Six Month Results

Revenues for the first six months of 2011 were $316.7 million, up
62.4% from revenues of $195.0 million in the first six months of
2010.  Gross profit was $18.6 million for the first six months of
2011, compared to gross loss of $6.7 million for the first six
months of 2010.  Gross margin was 5.9%, compared to a negative
3.4% for the first six months of 2010.  Operating loss was
$18.6 million for the first six months of 2011, compared to
operating loss of $28.5 million for the first six months of 2010.
Net loss attributable to WSP Holdings was $33.0 million for the
first six months of 2011, compared to net loss attributable to WSP
Holdings of $39.0 million for the first six months of 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed
$1.528 billion in total assets, $1.260 billion in total
liabilities, and stockholders' equity of $268 million.

As reported in the TCR on Oct. 3, 2011, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu
CPA Ltd., in Beijing, People's Republic of China, expressed
substantial doubt about WSP Holdings' ability to continue as a
going concern, following the Company's results for the fiscal year
ended Dec. 31, 2010.  The independent auditors noted that the
Company suffered significant operating loss and had working
capital deficiency and negative operating cash flow while
a significant amount of short-term borrowings is required to be
refinanced.


* Chapter 13 Debtor May Sue on Pre-Bankruptcy Claim
---------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that an individual in Chapter 13 has the right to sue a
lender on a claim that arose before bankruptcy, U.S. District
Judge Alexander Williams Jr. from Baltimore ruled in an Oct. 14
opinion.

According to the report, the case involved a lawsuit against a
lender involving financing for an automobile.  The lender had the
suit transferred from state court and promptly filed a motion to
dismiss.

The lender, Mr. Rochelle recounts, argued that only a Chapter 13
trustee has standing, meaning the right to pursue a claim that
belonged to the bankrupt before the Chapter 13 filing.  The lender
cited a 2002 ruling by a district judge in North Carolina called
In re Family Dollar FLSA Litigation dismissing a suit under
similar circumstances.

Judge Williams, according to Mr. Rochelle, declined to follow the
North Carolina decision, although it came from another district
judge in the 7th Circuit.  Instead, Judge Williams said it was
best to follow the five U.S. Courts of Appeal holdings that an
individual in Chapter 13 has standing to bring suit on a pre-
bankruptcy claim.

The case is Brooks v. Prestige Financial Services Inc., 11-0237,
U.S. District Court, District of Maryland (Baltimore).


* Missing Note Trips Up Mortgage Lender in 8th Cir. BAP Ruling
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that a lender who couldn't produce the original mortgage
note wasn't entitled to judgment from the bankruptcy court
allowing enforcement of the mortgage.  The case involved a
mortgage where the original lender went into Chapter 11 and sold
the assets.  The U.S. Bankruptcy Appellate Panel for the Eighth
Circuit said in an opinion that there was nothing in the record to
show the "location of the note."  The case is Banks v. Kondaur
Capital Corp. (In re Banks), 11-6025, U.S. 8th Circuit Bankruptcy.


* Debt of Dissolved Company Not Discharged for Owners
-----------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that shareholders who dissolve a corporation to avoid
paying a judgment against the business end up with a non-
dischargeable debt in their personal bankruptcies, according to an
Oct. 5 opinion by Judge Cecelia G. Morris in Poughkeepsie, New
York.  The corporation was saddled with a $350,000 judgment.
While the judgment was on appeal, the two shareholders dissolved
the corporation and continued operating the business.  Judge
Morris said that the shareholders "dissolved their corporation in
secrecy to those creditors who they did not see fit to pay."
Judge Morris held that the former owners, now in Chapter 7
bankruptcy, are personally liable for the judgment against the
business.  The case is Esposito v. Hartley (In re Hartley),
19-9055, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District New York
(Poughkeepsie).


* Rise in 3Q NFP Healthcare Upgrades Not Likely to Continue
-----------------------------------------------------------
In a surprising result not likely to ignite a trend, rating
activity for the not-for-profit health care sector in the third
quarter of the year saw 10 upgrades to only five downgrades, says
Moody's Investors Service in its quarterly report on rating
activity for the sector.

The decline in downgrades was steeper than in any single quarter
over the last decade, and it was only the second time in nearly
two years that upgrades exceeded downgrades. The $2.1 billion in
upgraded debt well exceeded the dollar amount of downgraded debt,
$4.6 million.

"The causes are various, idiosyncratic, and do not reflect more
entrenched negative credit trends facing hospitals," said Moody's
Associate Analyst Jennifer Ewing, author of the report. "As payer
pressures accelerate and volumes show declining trends, the low
number of downgrades is not likely to continue and, by year's end,
we expect that total downgrades will once again outpace upgrades."

Moody's Ewing said the much larger dollar amount of upgraded debt
in comparison to downgraded debt is due to the higher volume of
upgrades relative to downgrades and due to the larger size and
often greater debt capacity of upgraded providers.

Some upgraded providers were aided by new state Medicaid provider
fee programs that helped give some management teams time to cut
expenses, rationalize services, and adjust to weak economic
conditions and volume declines, according to the Moody's report.

"Some of the rating upgrades also reflect the material increase in
liquidity following the receipt of provider fee program funds,"
said Ewing. "Other upgrades were due to merger activity, accenting
the consolidation we expect to see in the industry over the next
couple of years."

Moody's affirmed 82 ratings in the quarter, representing 85% of
all rating activity and affecting approximately $27.7 billion in
debt, which is consistent with the longstanding historical trend
of affirmations dwarfing rating changes. Of the 82 affirmations in
the third quarter of 2011, 17 were accompanied by outlook changes
in a positive direction and seven in a negative direction.

Other findings offered in the Moody's report include:

-- Third quarter rating activity was a material shift from second
   quarter of 2011 when downgrades (12) outpaced upgrades (three)
   at a rate of 4.0 to 1.

-- The ratio of 2 to 1 in favor of upgrades in the third quarter
   was a departure from the 11 downgrades and seven upgrades (1.6
   to 1) of the third quarter of 2010.

-- Through the first three quarters of 2011, downgrades (23)
   exceed upgrades (18) for a ratio of 1.3 to 1; Moody's expects
   downgrades to exceed upgrades for 2011 as a whole.

The report is entitled "U.S. Not-For-Profit Healthcare Quarterly
Ratings Monitor: Surprising Rise in Upgrades in Third Quarter
2011."


* SecondMarket Says Q3 Bankruptcy-Claims Trading Hits 2011 High
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that new data show that
buyers and sellers of bankruptcy claims had a busy third quarter,
with both the volume and dollar amount of traded debt hitting a
year-to-date high.


* GAO Report Confirms Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust System is Broken
----------------------------------------------------------------
Lisa A. Rickard, President of the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal
Reform, made the following statement regarding the release of
Asbestos Injury Compensation: The Role and Administration of
Asbestos Trusts, a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report
to Rep.  Lamar Smith (R-TX), Chairman of the House Judiciary
Committee.

"I commend Chairman Smith for commissioning this report, which
confirms that the asbestos trusts operate under a shroud of
secrecy and without judicial or federal government oversight.

"It is becoming clear that rather than acting to prevent abusive
claims, the asbestos trusts are effectively encouraging fraud by
inhibiting claims information sharing between the trusts and the
tort system.  We hope that Congress's growing attention to this
important issue will ensure that the trusts operate in a manner
fair to asbestos victims and job-creating businesses, not
plaintiffs' lawyers and fraudulent claimants."

The GAO report explicitly acknowledges that the asbestos
bankruptcy trusts, which are established by bankrupt companies and
currently control over $36 billion in assets, do not make claimant
filing information publicly available.  The report also finds that
65% of trusts have implemented procedures that block the
information sharing necessary to prevent fraudulent claims. In
addition, only three of the eleven trusts interviewed by GAO have
audited their claims, and only one has submitted medical evidence
for external review.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business
federation representing the interests of more than 3 million
businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state
and local chambers and industry associations.


* Fitch Says Defaults by Junk-Rated Issuers Lower Than Expected
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that the default rate
among high-yield issuers is expected to end the year between 1%
and 1.5%, according to a latest report from Fitch Ratings
released.


* Strategic Value Raises $750M for New Special Situations Fund
--------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that strategic Value
Partners raked in $750 million so far for its second special
situations fund that will target European distressed credit, said
a person familiar with the situation.

                           *********

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.
