3 G PROPERTIES: Wants Until Dec. 15 to Solicit Plan Acceptances
---------------------------------------------------------------
3 G Properties, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of North Carolina to extend until Dec. 15, 2011,
its exclusive period to solicit acceptances for its proposed
Chapter 11 Plan.

The Debtor relates that it needs more time to accommodate the
Court's pending considerations of confirmation of the Debtor's
Plan, as amended.

The Debtor filed its Amended And Restated Plan of Liquidation on
Nov. 3, 2011 and its Second Amended Disclosure Statement on
Nov. 3.  The confirmation hearing was scheduled for Dec. 5.

As reported in the Sept. 8, 2011 edition of the Troubled Company
Reporter, the Debtor has already presented to the Court a proposed
plan but the plan was denied.

On July 12, 2011, the bankruptcy judge denied confirmation of the
Chapter 11 Plan, filed on Dec. 13, 2010, on the basis that "the
court does not foresee any change in the Debtor's circumstances
that would allow it to propose a plan to cure the defects
identified."

AFFINION GROUP: S&P Revises 'B+' Rating Outlook to Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its rating outlook on
Affinion Group Holdings Inc. to negative from stable.  Ratings on
the company, including the 'B+' corporate credit rating, were
affirmed.

"The outlook revision reflects the deterioration in Affinion's
credit measures, as debt-financed special dividends in the first
quarter of 2011 were not offset by the contribution from the
January 2011 equity-financed acquisition of online marketing
services company Webloyalty Holdings Inc.," explained Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Hal Diamond.

Affinion has posted minimal organic revenue growth, while
incurring higher operating and legal costs over the past year.
Operating performance has been under pressure partly as a result
of increased marketing and commissions aimed at restoring revenue
growth.

"The 'B+' corporate credit rating on Affinion reflects our view
that leverage will remain high over the intermediate term,
reflecting the company's acquisition-driven growth and
shareholder-return-focused strategy. We consider the company's
business risk profile as 'weak' (as our criteria define the term),
because of continued membership attrition in many of its services,
some affinity partner concentration (especially in the financial
services industry), and competitive pressures in the membership
marketing business. Relatively high leverage and a record of
acquisitions and special dividends underpin our view of Affinion's
financial risk profile as 'highly leveraged.' The company operates
in the direct marketing industry, which we consider mature, and
which relies heavily on ongoing investment in acquiring new
members," S&P said.

"Affinion is a leading direct marketer of membership, insurance,
and credit card ancillary services, primarily sold under the names
of affinity partner institutions, such as financial institutions
and retailers. Revenue from its existing customer base has
historically generated a significant percentage of sales, though
organic growth has been minimal over the past few years,
reflecting weak conditions the financial services industry. Direct
mail, which we view as facing declining fundamentals, remains a
significant marketing channel for the company to acquire new
members. We expect the company to continue to expand its online
marketing efforts, in part because the Internet has become an
increasingly regulated and highly competitive marketing channel,"
S&P stated.

AIRESURF NETWORKS: D&Os D. Mitchell and G. Brent Leave Posts
------------------------------------------------------------
AireSurf Networks Holdings Inc. disclosed that David Mitchell and
Gregory Brent have resigned as a directors and officers of
Company.  The current board of directors consists of Messrs. Chris
Irwin and Kevin Pitt.  The company is currently trying to identify
additional directors to allow its board composition to meet the
requirements of applicable corporate and securities laws.

In addition, the trustee in bankruptcy has filed the applicable
documents with the Bankruptcy Registrar to allow the Company to
receive a discharge from bankruptcy.  The company filed a proposal
under Section 50 of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) in
September 2010. In connection with the proposal the trustee has
recently distributed 8,130,193 common shares in the capital of
Company to various creditors under the terms of the proposal.

In connection with the distribution of Shares relating to the
proposal Irwin Professional Corporation acquired an additional
2,410,054 Shares.  Chris Irwin is the principal of Irwin
Professional Corporation and Mr. Irwin, together is his
associates, own an aggregate of 7,606,272 Shares representing
approximately 13% of the issued and outstanding Shares.  Mr. Irwin
also owns, either directly or through associates, 1,032,660
warrants to purchase Shares.  If Mr. Irwin, and his associates
were to exercise all of their respective convertible securities
they would have, on a partially diluted basis, ownership over
8,638,932 Shares, representing approximately 14.7% of the then
outstanding Shares.  The securities were acquired for investment
purposes and each of the Mr. Irwin and his associates may increase
or decrease their respective ownership position in the future.

Mr. Irwin is an insider of the Company and the Company is relying
on exemptions from the formal valuation and minority shareholder
approval requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 as the
proposal is a transaction subject to court approval under the
Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) and due to the fact that
the Shares are listed on the CNSX.  A material change report in
connection with the proposal will be filed less than 21 days
before distribution of the Shares in connection with the proposal
due to the fact that the bankruptcy process is dictated by the
trustee and outside the control of the Company.

The Company continues to work with Avrev Canada Inc. to raise the
requisite funds to advance the purchase by the Company of
proprietary security and sensor applications from Avrev, as
approved by the shareholders of the Company at its annual and
special meeting held on June 9, 2011.

                      About AireSurf Networks

In April 2011, AireSurf Networks Holdings Inc. disclosed that it
has issued to various creditors an aggregate of 8,130,193 common
shares in the capital of the Company, in accordance with its
bankruptcy proposal made on Sept. 22, 2010, and approved by the
Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Bankruptcy and Insolvency on
Nov. 15, 2010.

Risman & Zysman Inc., the Company's trustee in bankruptcy, will
distribute the shares to the creditors of the Company who filed
valid proof of claims in connection with the Proposal.

AireSurf has 58,447,789 shares outstanding.

Under the terms of the proposal filed by Risman & Zysman Inc.,
trustee in bankruptcy, each unsecured creditor of the Company is
to receive one common share in the capital of the Company for
every $0.05 of indebtedness.

Ontario, Canada-based Airesurf Networks is a researcher, designer
and manufacturer of digital communication amplifiers.   The
MegaFI(TM) System extends the range, coverage and throughput
capacity of WiFi access points without signal degradation.


ALABAMA HOUSING: S&P Raises Series 2003F Bond Rating From 'BB+'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its long-term rating on
Alabama Housing Finance Authority's (Village Green Apartments
Project) multifamily housing revenue bonds series 2003F three
notches to 'AA+' from 'BB+'. The outlook is negative. The bonds
are secured by a Fannie Mae credit facility.

The rating reflects that of the sovereign rating of the United
States (AA+/Negative).

"Should the sovereign rating on the United States be upgraded to
'AAA' and the bond program meet all criteria commensurate with an
'AAA' rating, the rating on the bonds will be upgraded," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Renee J. Berson.

"Standard & Poor's has analyzed updated cash flow statements,
based on a zero reinvestment assumption for all scenarios as set
forth in the related criteria articles. We believe the cash flow
projections, assuming no reinvestment earnings, indicate that
there will be sufficient revenues to pay regularly scheduled debt
service through bond maturity of March 1, 2036. In the event
that the security prepays, we expect there to be sufficient assets
to cover the reinvestment risk based on the 15-day minimum notice
period required for special redemptions. The borrower has entered
into an agreement to pay rebate fees directly so that sufficient
cash flow would be available to pay bondholders," S&P said.


ALLIED IRISH: Does Not Require Add'l Capital, EBA Confirms
----------------------------------------------------------
Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c. has published the results of the EU-
wide stress testing exercise co-ordinated by the European Banking
Authority under the supervision of the Central Bank of Ireland.

The published results confirm that AIB does not require any
additional capital.  AIB has been recapitalised to meet the
requirements of the Prudential Capital Assessment Review set by
the CBI in March 2011 and is required to maintain a minimum Core
Tier 1 ratio of 10.5% on an ongoing basis.

                      About Allied Irish Banks

Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c. -- http://www.aibgroup.com/-- is a
major commercial bank based in Ireland.  It has an extensive
branch network across the country, a head office in Dublin and a
capital markets operation based in the International Financial
Services Centre in Dublin.  AIB also has retail and corporate
businesses in the UK, offices in Europe and a subsidiary company
in the Isle of Man and Jersey (Channel Islands).

Since the onset of the global and Irish financial crisis, AIB's
relationship with the Irish Government has changed significantly.

As at Dec. 31, 2010, the Government, through the National Pension
Reserve Fund Commission ("NPRFC"), held 49.9% of the ordinary
shares of the Company (the share of the voting rights at
shareholders' general meetings), 10,489,899,564 convertible non-
voting ("CNV") shares and 3.5 billion 2009 Preference Shares.  On
April 8, 2011, the NPRFC converted the total outstanding amount of
CNV shares into 10,489,899,564 ordinary shares of AIB, thereby
increasing its holding to 92.8% of the ordinary share capital.

In addition to its shareholders' interests, the Government's
relationship with AIB is reflected through formal and informal
oversight by the Minister and the Department of Finance and the
Central Bank of Ireland, representation on the Board of Directors
(three non-executive directors are Government nominees),
participation in NAMA, and otherwise.

As reported by the TCR on May 31, 2011, KPMG, in Dublin, Ireland,
noted that there are a number of material economic, political and
market risks and uncertainties that impact the Irish banking
system, including the Company's continued ability to access
funding from the Eurosystem and the Irish Central Bank to meet its
liquidity requirements, that raise substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company reported a net loss of EUR10.16 billion on
EUR1.84 billion of interest income for 2010, compared with a net
loss of EUR2.33 billion on $2.87 billion of interest income for
2009.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed
EUR126.87 billion in total assets, EUR120.01 billion in total
liabilities, and EUR6.86 billion in total shareholders' equity
including non-controlling interests.

AMERICAN LASER: Wins Interim Approval of Chapter 11 Loan
--------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that American Laser Centers LLC
Friday won interim court approval to tap $13 million worth of
emergency bankruptcy financing amid questions from a major
supplier about the circumstances of the company's Chapter 11
filing.

                   About American Laser Centers

ALC Holdings LLC dba American Laser Centers operates 156 laser
hair-removal clinics in 27 states. At the peak, the Farmington
Hills, Michigan-based company had 222 stores generating $130.6
million in annual revenue.

ALC Holdings, along with its affiliates, filed a Chapter 11
bankruptcy petition (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 11-13853) on
Dec. 8, 2011.

The Debtor aims to sell the business to an affiliate of Versa
Capital Management LLC.  Versa will pay $30 million plus $18
million of new-money financing to support the bankruptcy, unless
outbid at auction.  A hearing to approve the sale is intended to
be held by Jan. 26.
Bankruptcy was blamed on over-expansion, the effects of the
recession and an "overleveraged balance sheet."

Assets are $80.4 million.  Liabilities include $40.3 million owing
on a first-lien debt and $51 million in subordinated notes.  Some
$17.9 million is owing to trade suppliers.

Versa is providing $58 million in financing for the Chapter 11
case, including $18 million of fresh cash.  The remainder will pay
off the existing first-lien loan.

ARCHIMEDES FUNDING: Fitch Cuts Ratings on 3 Note Classes  to 'D'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded and withdrawn the ratings of three
classes of notes issued by Archimedes Funding III, Ltd./Corp.
(Archimedes III) as follows:

  -- $1,591,235 class D-1 notes downgraded to 'Dsf' from 'Csf' and
     withdrawn;
  -- $7,319,681 class D-2 notes downgraded to 'Dsf' from 'Csf' and
     withdrawn;
  -- $5,410,199 class D-3 notes downgraded to 'Dsf' from 'Csf' and
     withdrawn.

The transaction's final maturity date occurred on Nov. 29, 2011,
at which time the class D-1, D-2 and D-3 (collectively, class D)
notes each received their full interest payment along with
approximately $3.5 million of principal distributed pro rata. Each
of the class D notes has defaulted since they have not received
their full principal amount by the final maturity date.  The
ratings of the class D notes are withdrawn due to the defaults of
these tranches.

Following the final maturity date there was one loan position
remaining in the portfolio, which the trustee subsequently
liquidated for approximately $600 thousand.  The proceeds from
this sale were distributed after the final maturity date and were
insufficient to pay off the class D notes.  The trustee has
indicated that there will be one final payment date, likely in
January 2012, where a relatively minimal amount of residual
interest proceeds will be distributed.

Archimedes III was a cash flow collateralized debt obligation
(CDO) that closed on Nov. 2, 1999 and was managed by West Gate
Horizon Advisors, LLC.


AS SEEN ON TV: Posts $12.1 Million Net Loss in Sept. 30 Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
As Seen On TV, Inc., formerly H&H Imports, Inc., filed its
quarterly report on Form 10-Q, reporting a net loss of
$12.1 million on $258,495 of revenues for the three months ended
Sept. 30, 2011, compared with net income of $594,154 on $292,933
of revenues for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2010.

The Company recognized warrant revaluation income of $1.8 million
for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2010.

For the six months ended Sept. 30, 2011, the Company has reported
a net loss of $12.4 million on $744,383 of revenues, compared with
a net loss of $239,821 on $457,231 of revenues for the six months
ended Sept. 30, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $3.5 million
in total assets, $13.9 million in total current liabilities, and
a stockholders' deficit of $10.4 million.

EisnerAmper LLP, in Edison, New Jersey, expressed substantial
doubt about H&H Imports' ability to continue as a going concern,
following the Company's results for the fiscal year ended March
31, 2011.  The independent auditors noted that of the Company's
recurring losses from operations and negative cash flows from
operations.

ASTORIA GENERATING: S&P Lowers $100MM Term Loan Rating to 'CCC'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on Astoria
Generating Co. Acquisitions LLC's (Astoria Gen) $430 million ($141
million outstanding) first-lien term loan due 2013 and its $100
million first-lien ($63 million drawn as of Sept. 30, 2011)
working capital facility due 2012 to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'. The rating
remains on CreditWatch with developing implications. "In addition,
we lowered our rating on the $300 million ($300 million
outstanding) second-lien term bank loan due 2013 to 'D' from 'CCC-
'," S&P said.

The recovery rating of '1' on the first-lien facilities is
unchanged, indicating that lenders can expect a very high (90% to
100%) recovery of their principal in a default scenario. The '5'
recovery rating on the second-lien facility is unchanged,
indicating that lenders can expect a modest recovery (10% to 30%)
if a payment default occurs.

"The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has not yet set a
date for its final determination of the project's complaint. The
CreditWatch with developing implications indicates that we may
raise or lower the ratings based on the proceeding's ultimate
outcome. Furthermore, the project tripped its financial covenants
(maximum leverage) under the first-lien and second-lien credit
agreement for the third quarter as reported Nov. 29, 2011. For
third-quarter 2011, the maximum leverage ratio requirements under
the first and second liens was 5.0x and 6.0x, respectively. The
actual performance was 7.82x. US Power Generating Co. can choose
to cure this trip within 10 days, which ends Friday, Dec. 9, 2011.
However, in our opinion, this cure is unlikely at this point, but
if a cure is affected we will reassess," S&P said.

"On Nov. 28, 2011, the project and the first-lien lenders executed
a forbearance agreement whereby they have agreed to defer from
exercising their rights under the credit agreement against failure
to comply with the financial covenants, such as the breach of the
leverage covenants (for both quarters ending September and
December 2011) and a cross default due to acceleration by
the second-lien lenders. The forbearance agreement will be
effective until Feb. 1, 2012," S&P related.

On Dec 6, 2011, the second-lien lenders gave notice to accelerate
payment of the $300 million principal. Per the terms of the
intercreditor agreement, the second-lien lenders have limited
rights and remedies against the collateral while the first lien is
outstanding. However, they can move to exercise remedies after 180
days.

"The project is evaluating restructuring options that include
selling assets, refinancing, and possibly mothballing or retiring
assets," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Trevor D'Olier-
Lees.

"The CreditWatch with developing implications reflects the breach
of covenants and the heightened uncertainty regarding future
capacity prices in New York Zone J and that we may raise or lower
the rating, based on the ultimate outcome of the FERC proceeding
and refinancing. If the FERC rules in the project's favor, we
could raise the ratings. We may downgrade the rating if the
opposite occurs," S&P said.

ATMAN HOSPITALITY: Court Names Michael Kasolas as Ch. 11 Trustee
----------------------------------------------------------------
David Benda at redding.com reports that Michael G. Kasolas, a
certified public accountant from San Francisco, was named trustee
in the Chapter 11 case of Atman Hospitality Group on Dec. 1, 2011.

According to the report, the appointment came one day after Judge
Thomas Holman denied Atman Hospitality Group's request to use cash
collateral to pay employee wages, taxes and maintain the property
as it attempts to reorganize its roughly $13 million in debt.

The report says Atman Hospitality Group had been battling its
largest creditor, Far East National Bank of Los Angeles, to keep
Gaia Hotel's doors open.

The report, citing court documents, relates that Far East National
Bank urged the court to reject the use of cash collateral and
appoint a trustee because it felt Atman Hospitality Group wasn't
following court rules and couldn't be "trusted to manage its
estate."

The report says Mr. Kasolas is expected to give a budget to Far
East National Bank that shows projected revenues and expenses from
Jan. 1 to March 31, 2012.  The financial outline is due on or
before Dec. 22, 2011.

Based in Sunnyvale, California, Atman Hospitality Group Inc. dba
Gaia Shasta Hotel filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. E.D.
Calif. Case No. 11-42576) on Sept. 19, 2011.  Judge Thomas Holman
presides over the case.  G. Michael Williams, Esq., at Ganzer &
Williams, represents the Debtor.  The Debtor estimated assets of
between $1 million and $10 million, and debts of between
$10 million and $50 million.


ATRIUM COS: S&P Affirms 'B-' Corporate; Outlook Negative
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services affirmed its 'B-' corporate
credit rating on Dallas-based Atrium Cos. Inc. and removed all
ratings from CreditWatch, where they were placed with negative
implications on Sept. 2, 2011. The outlook is negative.

"The rating affirmation and negative outlook reflect Atrium's more
highly leveraged financial risk profile resulting from a more
difficult residential construction market than we had previously
expected," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Megan Johnston.
"In our view, these conditions are unlikely to meaningfully
improve over the next year. In addition, the actions reflect
reduced liquidity and increased debt levels due to costs incurred
related to the recent immigration audit of the company's Champion
Window plant in Houston. As a result, for the trailing 12 months
ended Sept. 30, 2011, total leverage (adjusted for operating
leases, as well as for one-time costs associated with the
immigration audit) was between 8x and 9x, compared with about 6x
as of March 31, 2011. (Atrium does not publicly disclose financial
information given its private company status)," S&P said.

"We now expect that Atrium's operating results into 2012 will
likely be weaker than we had previously forecast given continued
weakness in new residential construction as well as repair and
remodeling spending. Standard & Poor's economists are projecting
housing starts of 660,000 in 2012, a modest improvement over
2011's estimated level of 600,000 starts but still well below
the long-term average of 1.5 million annual starts. In addition,
repair and remodeling spending in 2012 will likely be flat over
2011 levels. Previously, we had expected spending growth of 3% to
5%. As a result, we are expecting leverage to remain between 8x
and 9x in 2012, with cash interest coverage below 2x," S&P said.

"The 'B-' corporate credit rating on Atrium reflects the
combination of what we consider to be the company's vulnerable
business risk profile and highly leveraged financial risk profile.
The vulnerable business risk profile reflects the company's
limited market share in the highly competitive and fragmented
windows industry, offset partially by some strength in regional
markets, particularly Texas and Canada, as well as exposure to
volatile raw material costs, particularly resin and aluminum," S&P
said.

"Atrium is a vertically integrated manufacturer of aluminum and
vinyl windows and patio doors with more than 20 manufacturing
facilities and 30 distribution centers in North America.
Approximately 50% of the company's consolidated revenue is derived
from residential construction throughout the U.S. The rating
outlook is negative. Because of the poor operating environment,
Standard & Poor's believes operating conditions for Atrium will
remain difficult over the next several quarters, resulting in weak
credit measures for the rating. We project that the ratio of debt
to EBITDA could exceed 8x in 2012, with cash interest coverage of
less than 2x," S&P said.

"We could lower the ratings on Atrium if weaker-than-expected
operating conditions were to cause the company to use cash
balances and revolver availability to fund operating losses, or if
headroom on the covenants that govern its term loan were to fall
below 10%, which could cause us to revise our assessment of
Atrium's liquidity to less-than-adequate. This could occur
if EBITDA were to fall approximately 15% from projected 2012
levels at a time when covenants periodically tighten," S&P said.

"We could revise the outlook to stable if construction end markets
begin to recover and repair and remodeling spending increases,
such that EBITDA and liquidity improve more quickly than we
expect. This could occur if the sales grow in the mid-single
digits and gross margins return to historical levels," S&P said.


AUGUSTA HOUSING: S&P Raises Rating on Revenue Bonds From 'BB'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its long-term rating on
Augusta Housing Authority, Ga.'s (Richmond Summit Apartments
Project) multifamily housing revenue bonds series 2004 four
notches to 'AA+' from 'BB'. The outlook is negative. The bonds are
secured by a Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed security.

The rating reflects the sovereign rating on the United States
(AA+/Negative).

"Should the sovereign rating on the United States be upgraded to
'AAA' and the bond program meet all criteria commensurate with an
'AAA' rating, the rating on the bonds will be upgraded," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Renee J. Berson.

"Standard & Poor's has analyzed updated cash flow statements,
based on a zero reinvestment assumption for all scenarios as set
forth in the related criteria articles. We believe the cash flow
projections, assuming no reinvestment earnings, indicate that
there will be sufficient revenues to pay regularly scheduled debt
service through bond maturity of Oct. 20, 2044. In the event that
the security prepays, we expect there to be sufficient assets to
cover the reinvestment risk based on the 15-day minimum notice
period required for special redemptions," S&P said.


AVENTINE RENEWABLE: Liquidity Tightens on Operating Hiccups
-----------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that less than two years since
emerging from bankruptcy, ethanol producer Aventine Renewable
Energy Holdings Inc. is at risk of stressing its liquidity as most
of its plants are operating below full capacity, analysts said.

                     About Aventine Renewable

Pekin, Illinois-based Aventine Renewable Energy Holdings, Inc.
(Pink Sheets: AVRNQ) -- http://www.aventinerei.com/-- is a
producer and marketer of ethanol to many leading energy companies
in the United States.  In addition to ethanol, Aventine also
produces distillers grains, corn gluten meal, corn gluten feed,
corn germ and brewers' yeast.

The Company and and all of its direct and indirect subsidiaries
filed for Chapter 11 on April 7, 2009 (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case
No. 09-11214).  Joel A. Waite, Esq., and Ryan M. Bartley, Esq., at
Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, serves as bankruptcy counsel to
the Debtors.  Davis Polk & Wardwell is special tax counsel and
Houlihan, Lokey, Howard & Zukin, Inc., is the financial advisor.
Garden City Group, Inc., has been engaged as claims agent.  Donald
J. Detweiler, Esq., at Greenberg Traurig, LLP, serves as counsel
to the official committee of unsecured creditors.  When it filed
for bankruptcy protection from its creditors, Aventine Renewable
estimated between $100 million and $500 million each in assets and
debts.


AVENTINE RENEWABLE: S&P Cuts Corporate Credit Rating to 'CCC+'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Aventine Renewable Energy Holdings Inc. to 'CCC+'. "At
the same time, we lowered the $225 million senior secured note
issue rating to 'B-'. We removed our ratings on Aventine from
CreditWatch with negative implications, where we placed them on
Sept. 30, 2011. The '2' recovery rating remains unchanged. The
outlook is negative," S&P said.

"The downgrade reflects problems the company has encountered in
attempting to start its new facilities, and the risk of additional
delays and cost overruns. It also reflects the commodity basis
differentials its operating plants have experienced in 2011 that
have compressed margins, especially in the second quarter of 2011
when index-based crush spreads were weak. Although performance
has improved slightly since then, we believe liquidity may come
under stress and that covenant violations are possible in 2012
unless operations and realized margins improve," S&P said.

"The ratings on Aventine incorporate its vulnerable business risk
profile and its highly leveraged financial risk profile," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Mark Habib.

"The vulnerable business risk profile reflects the ongoing
construction risk at Aventine, as well as our broader view of
risks in the ethanol sector, which is exposed to unpredictable and
cyclical cash flows due to volatile and inconsistently correlated
commodity pricing for corn, natural gas, and ethanol," S&P said.

The financial risk profile reflects Aventine's highly leveraged
financial metrics, which are particularly weak, with negative
EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011.

The negative outlook reflects the risk of further delays in
realizing full throughput under the planned capacity expansions,
which could impair financial performance and stress liquidity. It
also reflects the potential for weaker-than-expected crush spreads
at the operating facilities. Commodity prices and basis
differentials have been and will likely remain volatile over
the long term, making Aventine's profitability difficult to
predict. A reduction or removal of government subsidies, including
the VEETC, could further complicate forecasts for ethanol pricing
and margins.

"We could lower the rating if expansion delays or cost overruns
indicate that EBITDA is likely to remain negative and constrain
liquidity for an extended period. This could also result if
realized crush spreads drop to below 55 cents per gallon, or if
Aventine's conversion and overhead costs rise significantly above
50 cents per gallon. We could raise the rating if construction is
completed on time and budget and improved operating performance
supports an expectation of debt to EBITDA below 6x," S&P said.


AZ CHEM: Standard & Poor's Affirms 'B+' Corporate Credit Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B+' corporate
credit rating on Jacksonville, Fla.-based AZ Chem US Inc. The
outlook is stable. "At the same time, we assigned our 'B+'
corporate credit rating to the company's holding company and
indirect parent Arizona Chemical Holdings Corp. We also assigned
our 'B+' issue-level ratings to AZ Chem US's $60 million first-
lien senior secured revolving credit facility due 2016 and $750
million term loan due 2017 with recovery ratings of '3',
indicating our expectation of a meaningful recovery (50% to 70%)
in the event of a payment default," S&P said.

"The ratings on Arizona Chemical Holdings and AZ Chem US reflect
the company's concentration in a niche market for specialty pine-
based chemicals and its very aggressive financial policies, as
well as our view that industry conditions will support the current
financial profile," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Seamus
Ryan. "This also reflects our expectation that the company will
not increase debt leverage beyond current levels to fund
additional shareholder rewards or growth. We characterize
Arizona's business risk profile as weak and its financial risk
profile as aggressive."

"Our assessment of Arizona's financial risk profile incorporates
our view of the risks related to its shareholder-friendly
financial policy, as highlighted by the proposed debt-financed
distribution. Pro forma for the transaction, total adjusted debt
will have increased to about $805 million from about $510 million
at the end of 2010. Significant improvements in EBITDA and cash
flow over the past several quarters have contributed to a
reduction in debt leverage metrics. However, in our view, the
current unprecedented favorable pricing for Arizona's products,
which has helped improve operating performance, is unlikely to be
fully sustained over the next two years. Based on our scenario
forecasts, we assume selling prices could drop by as much as
15% to 20% over this period as pricing stabilizes at a more
sustainable long-term level. Although the pro forma ratio of funds
from operations (FFO) to total debt could approach 40% over the
next year, we expect this ratio will return to about 20% -- a
level still appropriate for the current rating," S&P said.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation that, despite an
increase in debt and likely regression in operating results over
the next year, Arizona's operating performance should support
financial metrics consistent with the current ratings. We expect
management will be prudent in its capital spending and investment
plans. We do not expect further dividends or acquisitions to
increase debt leverage beyond current levels," S&P said.

"We could lower the ratings if the company further increases its
debt leverage to fund shareholder rewards or growth, or if selling
prices decline by about 20% over the next 12 months without an
offsetting increase in sales volumes," Mr. Ryan continued. "These
scenarios could reduce the company's FFO to total debt below 15%.
Given its concentration in a niche business, as well as its
private equity ownership and the risk of further shareholder
rewards, an upgrade over the next couple of years is unlikely."

BERNARD L. MADOFF: Investors Lose Bid to Appeal $44MM Trustee Fees
------------------------------------------------------------------
Hilary Russ at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a group of Bernard
L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC's former investors have lost
their latest challenge to the $44 million in compensation awarded
so far to Irving Picard, the trustee liquidating the bankrupt
firm, according to an order filed Wednesday.

According to Law360, U.S. District Judge Robert P. Patterson Jr.
found that Diane and Roger Peskin and at least 80 other former
Madoff clients had not presented a "controlling" legal question
that they needed in their request to file an appeal in the middle
of the liquidation case.

                       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.

Mr. Picard has filed 1,000 lawsuits seeking $100 billion from
banks such as HSBC Holdings Plc and JPMorgan Chase & Co.  The
trustee has seen more than $28 billion of his claims tossed by
district judges.


BESO LLC: Sues Co-Investor Vicidomine to Recover Excess Funds
-------------------------------------------------------------
Steve Green at Vegas Inc. reports that actress Eva Longoria's Beso
LLC is suing one of Longoria's co-investors Anthony Vicidomine,
demanding he return money paid to buy out his share of the
business.

According to the report, a lawsuit-like adversary complaint was
filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Las Vegas on Nov 29, 2011, by
Beso LLC against Mr. Vicidomine.

The report notes that Beso LLC used to own the Beso restaurant and
Eve nightclub at the Crystals mall at CityCenter on the Las Vegas
Strip.  Ms. Longoria had a 32 percent position in Beso LLC, which
was created in hopes of duplicating the success of her Beso
restaurant in Hollywood.

According to the report, the complaint charges that before the
bankruptcy, Mr. Vicidomine negotiated a buyout of his interest in
Beso for $750,000.  That amount eventually grew to $784,000,
including attorney's fees, after Mr. Vicidomine sued to enforce
the settlement.

According to the report, the complaint doesn't allege any
wrongdoing by Mr. Vicidomine but asserts he has received more than
his fair share of cash from the company, given the losses facing
other investors and creditors.

The report adds, if successful, the complaint would mean that Mr.
Vicidomine, at one point Beso's third-largest creditor, would
likely see most of his investment in the company wiped out.

                          About Beso LLC

Beso LLC, co-owned by "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria,
filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Nev. Case
No. 11-10202) on Jan. 6, 2011.  Beso LLC runs a Las Vegas
restaurant that opened two years ago.  It disclosed assets of
$2,512,007 and liabilities of $5,680,339 in the schedules attached
to the Chapter 11 petition.  Lenard E. Schwartzer, Esq., at
Schwartzer & McPherson Law Firm, in Las Vegas, Nevada, serves as
counsel to the Debtor.  The petition was signed by William M.

BIO-BRIDGE SCIENCE: Posts $271,600 Net Loss in Third Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------
Bio-Bridge Science, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
reporting a net loss of $271,626 on $18,495 of revenue for the
three months ended Sept. 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of
$566,261 on $27,118 of revenue for the same period of 2010.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011, the Company has reported
a net loss of $1.0 million on $54,835 of revenue, compared with a
net loss of $3.0 million on $76,024 of revenue for the same period
last year.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $3.3 million
in total assets, $774,456 in current liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $2.5 million.

As reported in the TCR on April 26, 2011, Weinberg & Company,
P.A., in Los Angeles, expressed substantial doubt about Bio-Bridge

BIOZONE PHARMACEUTICALS: Issues 500,000 Shares of Common Stock
--------------------------------------------------------------
Biozone Pharmaceuticals, Inc., on Nov. 30, 2011, issued 500,000
shares of its common stock, par value $0.001 per share, pursuant
to a Subscription Agreement entered into on that date.

Also on Nov. 30, 2011, the Company issued 1,018,456 shares of its
common stock, par value $0.001 per share, upon conversion of the
principal and all of the interest due on a certain convertible
promissory note issued by the Company on Sept. 22, 2011, according
to the conditions set forth in that note.  In addition, pursuant
to the terms of the Securities Purchase Agreement related to the
note, the Company issued to the holder of the note a warrant to
purchase 250,000 shares of its common stock at an exercise price
of $1.00 per share.

The Shares and warrants were issued to an accredited investor in
reliance upon the exemption from registration provided by Section
4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Rule 506
promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission thereunder.

                           About Biozone

Biozone Pharmaceuticals, Inc., formerly, International Surf
resorts, Inc., was incorporated under the laws of the State of
Nevada on Dec. 4, 2006, to operate as an internet-based provider
of international surf resorts, camps and guided surf tours.  The
Company proposed to engage in the business of vacation real estate
and rentals related to its surf business and it owns the website
isurfresorts.com.  During late February 2011, the Company began to
explore alternatives to its original business plan.  On Feb. 22,
2011, the prior officers and directors resigned from their
positions and the Company appointed a new President, Director,
principal accounting officer and treasurer and began to pursue
opportunities in medical and pharmaceutical technologies and
products.  On March 1, 2011, the Company changed its name to
Biozone Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Since March 2011, the Company has been engaged primarily in
seeking opportunities related to its intention to engage in
medical and pharmaceutical businesses.  On May 16, 2011, the
Company acquired substantially all of the assets and assumed all
of the liabilities of Aero Pharmaceuticals, Inc., pursuant to an
Asset Purchase Agreement dated as of that date.  Aero manufactures
markets and distributes a line of dermatological products under
the trade name of Baker Cummins Dermatologicals.

On June 30, 2011, the Company acquired the Biozone Labs Group
which operates as a developer, manufacturer, and marketer of over-
the-counter drugs and preparations, cosmetics, and nutritional
supplements on behalf of health care product marketing companies
and national retailers.

BioZone as of Oct. 29, 2011, is in default with respect to eleven
senior secured convertible promissory notes issued to various
accredited investors with an aggregate principal amount of
$2,250,000 due to the fact that the Company has not paid the
amount due on maturity.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed
$10.70 million in total assets, $10.88 million in total
liabilities, and a $177,712 total shareholders' deficiency.

"Our current balances of cash will not meet our working capital
and capital expenditure needs for the next twelve months.  In
addition, as of September 30, 2011, we have a shareholder
deficiency of $177,712 and negative working capital of $1,740,163.
Because we are not currently generating sufficient cash to fund
our operations and we have debt that is in default, we may need to
rely on external financing to meet future operating, debt
repayment and capital requirements.  These conditions raise
substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going
concern."


BOBBY ROWE: Bankruptcy Auction Moved to Dec. 21
-----------------------------------------------
On Dec. 2, 2011, Karen Walsh, the Chapter 7 Trustee appointed in
the Bobby Rowe Energy, Inc. and Stephen Rowe Oil Properties, LLC
bankruptcy cases, entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with
Sam Mayes, Jr. for the sale of four oil and gas leases in Okmulgee
County, Oklahoma.  The sales price is $151,788.  The court-
appointed auctioneer, National Commercial Auctioneers, has
cancelled the auction originally scheduled for Dec. 14 at 10:00
a.m. and instead will be attending a hearing on December 21 at
9:00 a.m. where the Honorable Judge Cornish will be considering
the approval of the pending offer, subject to higher and better
bids.

"While the December 14 auction was cancelled, the new auction will
be on December 21 at 9:00 a.m. in the US Bankruptcy Court in
Okmulgee County, Oklahoma," comments Stephen Karbelk, CEO &
Founder of National Commercial Auctioneers.  "If another bidder is
willing to pay more than the existing offer, they can object to
the sale by filing a motion with the Court by December 16 and
following the procedures outlined in the sale motion filed on
December 2."

In bankruptcy, there is often the situation where an offer to
purchase assets is presented to the Court for approval but the
offer is subject to higher and better bids.  For another bidder to
bid, they are typically required to follow the exact same contract
as the pending offer, or "stalking horse bid" in bankruptcy
terminology, and to have a bid price that is a meaningful increase
over the pending offer.  In the Rowe cases, the next highest bid
must be $161,787.93 for all four leases and a new buyer must sign
the exact same contract that is pending before the Court.  In the
original auction, the leases were going to be offered
individually, in combinations and in their entirety.  But with the
stalking horse bid offer, the leases will only
be sold together for one bid.

obtain a copy of the sale motion, you can contact National
Commercial Auctioneers at 918-895-7077 or visit their Web site at

Statoil from Brigham).

The Brigham stockholders have tendered 109,400,549 shares of
Brigham common stock, par value $0.01 per share, to Statoil's
indirect, wholly owned subsidiary, Fargo Acquisition Inc.,
pursuant to the offer to purchase dated Oct. 28, 2011, which, when

Brigham, represents more than 92.6 percent of the outstanding
Shares.  The subsequent offering period expired at 12:00 midnight,
New York City time, at the end of Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2011.
Purchaser has accepted for payment, and will promptly pay for, all

Brigham will be the surviving corporation in the merger and an
indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Statoil.  Following the
merger, the Shares will be delisted and will cease to trade on the

BUILDERS FIRSTSOURCE: Secures $160MM Term Loan from Highbridge
--------------------------------------------------------------
Builders FirstSource, Inc., announced the completion of a new $160
million first-lien Term Loan financing agreement with affiliates
of Highbridge Principal Strategies, LLC.  The Company also
announced it had entered into a stand-alone letter of credit
facility with SunTrust Bank, which provides for the issuance of up
to $20 million of letters of credit.  With the proceeds, the
Company intends to repay the $20 million outstanding under the
current revolving credit facility, use $14.2 million to
collateralize letters of credit outstanding under the new LC
Facility, and pay fees and expenses related to the transaction.

Floyd Sherman, Builders FirstSource chief executive officer,
commented, "This financing transaction strengthens our liquidity
and positions us to take full advantage of the expected recovery
in housing.  I am sincerely appreciative of the support of our
company demonstrated by Highbridge and SunTrust in partnering with
us in this transaction.  I am also grateful for the continued
support of our two largest shareholders, JLL Partners and Warburg
Pincus, whose insight was critical to the success of this
financing transaction."

Continuing, Mr. Sherman added, "This financing transaction would
not have been possible without the continued improvement in our
2011 financial results.  We made strong progress in 2011, and our
improved liquidity should further this progress by allowing us to
better serve our customers while remaining a preferred partner
with our vendors.  Upon receipt of the $119.6 million in net
proceeds related to this transaction, our cash balance was
approximately $150 million, and our net liquidity was
approximately $115 million after giving effect to a $35 million
minimum cash requirement contained in the Term Loan.  Our sales
results through November have exceeded our expectations, delaying
the anticipated seasonal reduction in working capital typically
seen by this point in the year.  Our liquidity has also enabled us
to take advantage of opportunistic inventory buys to protect
customer pricing as we head into 2012."

The Term loan was issued at 97% and is secured by a first lien on
substantially all of the Company's assets and is guaranteed by all
the Company's subsidiaries.  Interest accrues on the loan at 3-
month LIBOR (subject to a 2% floor), plus 9.5%.  The Term Loan
also includes detachable warrants that allow for the purchase of
1.6 million shares of the Company's common stock, representing
approximately 1.5% fully diluted ownership, at a price of $2.50.
The LC Facility includes a commitment fee of 0.5% on any unused
amount and assesses interest at a rate of 2.0% on any outstanding
letters of credit.  The Term Loan and the LC Facility mature on
Sept. 30, 2015.  In conjunction with the closing of the Term Loan,
the Company terminated its $150 million revolving credit facility.

Mr. Sherman concluded, "I could not be more proud of what our
employees have been able to accomplish.  It has been a hard-fought
few years, and our employees have made the sacrifices and tough
decisions necessary to enable our company to manage through this
difficult housing environment.  I look forward to the
opportunities that lie ahead for Builders FirstSource."

                    About Builders FirstSource

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Builders FirstSource Inc. --
http://www.bldr.com/-- supplies and manufactures building
products for residential new construction.  The Company operates
in 9 states, principally in the southern and eastern United
States, and has 55 distribution centers and 51 manufacturing
facilities, many of which are located on the same premises as its
distribution facilities.

Builders FirstSource reported a net loss of $95.51 million on
$700.34 million of sales for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010,
compared with a net loss of $61.85 million on $677.88 million of
sales during the prior year.

The Company also reported a net loss of $48.29 million on
$586.41 million of sales for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011,
compared with a net loss of $70.89 million on $553.25 million of
sales for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed

liabilities, and $117.01 million in total stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

Builders FirstSource Inc. carries 'CCC+' issuer credit ratings,
with negative outlook, from Standard & Poor's.   S&P affirmed the
ratings in April 2011.  "The ratings affirmation reflects our
belief that Builders FirstSource will likely continue to generate
negative free cash flow over the upcoming year, given the ongoing
weakness in new residential housing markets.  While the company's
liquidity position, which we currently view as adequate, is likely
to somewhat improve due to the increased cash balances following
the planned refinancing and the extended maturity of its revolving
credit facility, it will likely continue to rely primarily on its
cash balances to meet its interest and operating obligations until
total housing starts improve at least 35% from 2010's level.  If
housing starts were to remain at its recent historically low
levels, we believe the proposed refinancing would allow Builders
FirstSource to fund its anticipated cash shortfall for
approximately two years.  The ratings also reflect what Standard &
Poor's Ratings Services considers to be the company's vulnerable
business profile given its significant exposure to highly cyclical
new residential construction markets and its narrow end-market
focus and geographic scope," S&P elaborated.

In April 2011, Moody's Investors Service assigned 'Caa2' corporate
family rating and probability of default ratings to Builders
FirstSource.  Moody's said the 'Caa2' Corporate Family Rating
results from very weak operating performance due to ongoing
pressures in the residential new construction end market, the
primary driver of BLDR's revenues.  Although some areas within
BLDR's primary geographic markets of North Carolina and South
Carolina may have some pockets of strength, overall, Moody's does
not expect substantial improvement in new housing starts in 2011
relative to 2010.  The company's products are highly price
sensitive to competition and ongoing market conditions, making it
difficult for it to pass on substantial price increases.  It is
also exposed to fluctuating costs associated with lumber, its
major raw material, adding to earnings volatility. For 2010,
adjusted operating margins are inadequate at negative 7.6% and
free cash flow-to-debt is insufficient at negative 15.3% (adjusted
per Moody's methodology).  The company's inability to generate
positive earnings will result in very weak credit metrics for the
foreseeable future and will require cash to fund operating
shortfalls.


BUNGE ASSET: Moody's to End ABCP Rating Actions
-----------------------------------------------
Bunge Asset Funding Corp., a fully supported, single-seller
conduit sponsored by Bunge Limited (Ba1, stable outlook) and
administered by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (Aa1/Prime-1/B), has
renewed the revolving liquidity facility to November 2016 and
increased the program size to $600 million. BAFC's $600 million
liquidity facility is provided by a syndicate of Prime-1 rated
banks. There are 19 banks in the syndicate with commitments
ranging from $38.75 million to $25 million. A complete list of
banks is available in the BAFC Program Review available on
moodys.com. With these amendments, BAFC remains as a fully
supported conduit.

BAFC is authorized to issue up to $600 million of ABCP and
currently has $5 million of ABCP outstanding.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Bunge Asset Funding Corp.: The amendments do not change the fully
supported nature of the conduit's portfolio, the ability of
JPMorgan Chase to properly administer the program, and the
bankruptcy remoteness of the conduit. All of these factors
contribute to the Prime-1 rating of BAFC's ABCP.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was "Moody's
Approach to Rating Asset-Backed Commercial Paper" published in
February 2003.

Moody's monitors and analyzes ABCP programs on an ongoing basis. A
detailed description of each program is published in the ABCP
Program Review. Some ABCP programs have monthly updated
performance information, which is published in the Performance
Overviews.

CANO PETROLEUM: Receives Delisting Notice From NYSE Amex
--------------------------------------------------------
On Dec. 8, 2011, Cano Petroleum, Inc. said that it received a
letter from NYSE Amex LLC confirming its intent to strike the
common stock of Cano from the Exchange by filing a delisting
application with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant
to Section 1009(d) of the Exchange's Company Guide.

As Cano previously reported, on October 26, 2011, the Exchange
Staff (the "Staff") notified Cano that is was not in compliance
with the following sections of the Company Guide:

   -- Section 1003(a)(i) -- stockholders' equity of less than
      $2,000,000 and net losses in two of its three most recent
      fiscal years;

   -- Section 1003(a)(ii) -- stockholders' equity of less than
      $4,000,000 and net losses in three of its four most recent
      fiscal years;

   -- Section 1003(a)(iii) -- stockholders' equity of less than
      $6,000,000 and net losses in five consecutive years; and

   -- Section 1003(a)(iv) -- Cano has sustained losses which are
      so substantial in relation to its overall operations or its
      existing financial resources, or its financial condition has
      become so impaired that it appears questionable, in the
      opinion of the Exchange, as to whether the Cano will be able
      to continue operations and/or meet its obligations as they
      mature.

Additionally, as Cano previously reported, on Nov. 22, 2011, the
Staff determined that Cano's securities had been selling for a low
price per share for a substantial period of time and, pursuant to
Section 1003(f)(v) of the Company Guide, Cano's continued listing
was predicated on it effecting a reverse stock split of its common
stock within a reasonable period of time.

Pursuant to Section 1009 of the Company Guide, Cano was given the
opportunity to submit a plan of compliance (a "Plan") by Nov. 28,
2011 advising the Exchange of actions it had taken, or would take,
to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide
by Jan. 26, 2012, Section 1003(f)(v) of the Company Guide by
May 22, 2012 and Section 1003(a)(i), Section 1003(a)(ii) and
Section 1003(a)(iii) of the Company Guide by Oct. 26, 2012.  Cano
submitted its Plan on Nov. 30, 2011.  In its Dec. 2, 2011 letter,
the Staff stated that upon a review of the Plan, the Staff
determined that the Plan did not sufficiently address how Cano
intended to regain compliance.  Accordingly, the Staff determined
that it was appropriate to initiate delisting proceedings.  The
Staff Determination constitutes notice of a failure to satisfy
certain continued listing standards.

In accordance with Sections 1203 and 1009(d) of the Company Guide,
Cano has a limited right to appeal the Staff Determination by
requesting an oral hearing or a hearing based on a written
submission before a Listing Qualifications Panel.  Cano's written
request for a hearing must be received by the Exchange by
Dec. 9, 2011. Cano intends to appeal the Staff Determination.
However, there can be no assurance Cano's request for continued
listing will be granted.  Cano is also taking action to have its
common stock eligible to be quoted on the OTC Pink market.
However, Cano can provide no assurance that its common stock will
be quoted on the OTC Pink market or continue to trade in any other
forum.

                       About Cano Petroleum

Cano Petroleum, Inc., is an independent Texas-based energy
producer with properties in the mid-continent region of the United
States.  Cano's primary focus is on increasing domestic production
from proven fields using enhanced recovery methods.  Cano trades
on the NYSE Amex Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol CFW.

The Company reported a net loss of $185.70 million on
$26.12 million of total operating revenues for the year ended
June 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of $11.54 million on
$22.85 million of total operating revenues during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed
$65.43 million in total assets, $118.80 million in total
liabilities, and a $53.36 million total stockholders' deficit.

Hein & Associates LLP, in Dallas, Texas, noted that the Company
has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net
capital deficiency that raise substantial doubt about its ability
to continue as a going concern.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

In the past, the Company's strategy had been to convert its
estimated proved undeveloped reserves into proved producing
reserves, improve operational efficiencies in its existing
properties and acquire accretive proved producing assets suitable
for secondary and enhanced oil recovery at low cost.  Due to the
Company's current financial constraints, including continued
losses, defaults under the Company's loan agreements and the
Company's Series D Preferred Stock, no available borrowing
capacity, constrained cash flow, negative working capital, and
limited to no other capital availability, the Company is reviewing
strategic alternatives which include the sale of the Company, the
sale of some or all of the Company's existing oil and gas
properties and assets, potential business combinations, debt
restructuring, including recapitalizing the Company, and
bankruptcy.  The Company continues to focus on cash management and
cost reduction efforts to improve both its cash flow from
operations and profitability.

      opinion of the Exchange, as to whether the Cano will be able
      to continue operations or meet its obligations as they
      mature.

Additionally, as Cano previously reported, on Nov. 22, 2011, the
Staff determined that the Cano's securities had been selling for a
low price per share for a substantial period of time and, pursuant
to Section 1003(f)(v) of the Company Guide, Cano's continued
listing was predicated on it effecting a reverse stock split of
its common stock within a reasonable period of time.

Pursuant to Section 1009 of the Company Guide, Cano was given the
opportunity to submit a plan of compliance by Nov. 28, 2011,
advising the Exchange of actions it had taken, or would take, to
regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide by
Jan. 26, 2012, Section 1003(f)(v) of the Company Guide by
May 22, 2012, and Section 1003(a)(i), Section 1003(a)(ii) and
Section 1003(a)(iii) of the Company Guide by Oct. 26, 2012.  Cano
submitted its Plan on Nov. 30, 2011.  In its Dec. 2, 2011 letter,
the Staff stated that upon a review of the Plan, the Staff
determined that the Plan did not sufficiently address how Cano
intended to regain compliance.  Accordingly, the Staff determined
that it was appropriate to initiate delisting proceedings.  The
Staff Determination constitutes notice of a failure to satisfy
certain continued listing standards.

In accordance with Sections 1203 and 1009(d) of the Company Guide,
Cano has a limited right to appeal the Staff Determination by
requesting an oral hearing or a hearing based on a written
submission before a Listing Qualifications Panel.  Cano's written
request for a hearing must be received by the Exchange by Dec. 9,
2011.  Cano intends to appeal the Staff Determination.  However,
there can be no assurance Cano's request for continued listing
will be granted.  Cano is also taking action to have its common
stock eligible to be quoted on the OTC Pink market.  However, Cano
can provide no assurance that its common stock will be quoted on
the OTC Pink market or continue to trade in any other forum.

                       About Cano Petroleum

Cano Petroleum, Inc., is an independent Texas-based energy
producer with properties in the mid-continent region of the United
States.  Cano's primary focus is on increasing domestic production
from proven fields using enhanced recovery methods.  Cano trades
on the NYSE Amex Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol CFW.

The Company reported a net loss of $185.70 million on
$26.12 million of total operating revenues for the year ended
June 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of $11.54 million on
$22.85 million of total operating revenues during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2011, showed
$65.43 million in total assets, $118.80 million in total
liabilities, and a $53.36 million total stockholders' deficit.

Hein & Associates LLP, in Dallas, Texas, noted that the Company
has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net
capital deficiency that raise substantial doubt about its ability
to continue as a going concern.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

In the past, the Company's strategy had been to convert its
estimated proved undeveloped reserves into proved producing
reserves, improve operational efficiencies in its existing
properties and acquire accretive proved producing assets suitable
for secondary and enhanced oil recovery at low cost.  Due to the
Company's current financial constraints, including continued
losses, defaults under the Company's loan agreements and the
Company's Series D Preferred Stock, no available borrowing
capacity, constrained cash flow, negative working capital, and
limited to no other capital availability, the Company is reviewing
strategic alternatives which include the sale of the Company, the
sale of some or all of the Company's existing oil and gas
properties and assets, potential business combinations, debt
restructuring, including recapitalizing the Company, and
bankruptcy.  The Company continues to focus on cash management and
cost reduction efforts to improve both its cash flow from
operations and profitability.


CCH II LLC: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' Issuer Default Rating
-----------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the 'BB-' Issuer Default Rating (IDR)
assigned to CCH II, LLC, CCO Holdings, LLC (CCOH) and Charter
Communications Operating, LLC (CCO).  Each of CCH II, LLC, CCOH
and CCO are indirect wholly owned subsidiaries of Charter
Communications, Inc. (Charter).  Fitch has also affirmed the
specific issue ratings assigned to Charter's various subsidiaries
as outlined below.  The Rating Outlook for all of Charter's
ratings is Stable.  Approximately $12.5 billion of debt (principal
value) outstanding as of Sept. 30, 2011 is affected by Fitch's
action.

Fitch's ratings incorporate Charter's more viable capital
structure, improving financial flexibility and stable liquidity
profile.  Additionally the ratings are supported by Charter's size
and scale as the fourth largest cable MSO in the United States.
Fitch believes that Charter's capital structure along with a
relatively stable operating profile positions the company to
generate sustainable amounts of free cash flow (FCF, defined as
cash flow from operations less capital expenditures and
dividends).  Charter generated approximately $552 million of FCF
during the latest-12-months (LTM) period ended Sept. 30, 2011,
which followed approximately $702 million of FCF during 2010.
Higher interest costs and increased cash requirement for working
capital purposes have pressured FCF generation during 2011.  Fitch
anticipates 2012 FCF generation will be similar to the company's
2011 FCF levels.

CCOH's recent debt issuance along with CCO and CCH II, LLC's
tender for up to $1 billion of outstanding debt are a modest
positive for Charter's credit profile in Fitch's opinion.  The
transaction improves the company's overall financial flexibility
by addressing near-term maturities and is in line with Charter's
strategy to simplify its debt structure and extend its maturity
profile.  Fitch anticipates Charter's debt structure will continue
evolving into a more traditional hold-co/op-co structure, with
senior unsecured debt issued by CCOH and senior secured debt
issued by CCO, while eliminating the second lien tier of the
company's debt structure and reducing Charter's overall reliance
on secured debt.

Charter's liquidity position is sufficient given the current
rating and is primarily supported by the borrowing capacity from
CCO's $1.3 billion revolver (available for borrowing was
approximately $1.1 billion as of Sept. 30, 2011 and $826 million
after considering the tender offer) and expected free cash flow
generation.  As of Sept. 30, 2011, Charter had the capability to
draw its entire available revolver and maintain compliance with
leverage maintenance tests.  Commitments under the revolver will
expire on March 6, 2015.  Prior to the tender offer, Charter had
approximately $938 million of debt scheduled to mature during 2012
followed by $230 million in 2013 and $1.0 billion in 2014.

Ratings concerns center on Charter's elevated financial leverage
(relative to other large cable multiple system operators [MSOs]),
a comparatively weaker subscriber clustering profile and service
penetration rates that lag behind industry leaders.  Moreover
Charter's ability to adapt to the evolving operating environment
while maintaining its relative competitive position given the
challenging competitive environment and weak housing and
employment trends remains a key consideration.  Importantly
Charter continues to deploy DOCSIS 3.0 and switched digital video
throughout its cable plant, which positions the company to
efficiently manage its cable plant bandwidth and innovate its
service offerings.

Debt outstanding as of Sept. 30, 2011 totaled $12.5 billion
(principal value), of which 27% was senior secured. Leverage for
the LTM period ended Sept. 30, 2011 was 4.7 times (x), just
outside the company's leverage target of between 4x and 4.5x.
Fitch believes that Charters credit profile will improve modestly
during the ratings horizon with leverage declining to 4.5x by the
end of 2012 and approach 4x by the end of 2014.

The Stable Outlook reflects Fitch's belief that the company will
continue to extend its maturity schedule and Fitch's expectation
that Charter's operating profile will not materially decline
during the near term in the face of competition and poor housing
and employment conditions.

Positive rating actions would be contemplated as leverage declines
below 4.5x, and the company demonstrates progress in closing gaps
relative to its industry peers on service penetration rates and
strategic bandwidth initiatives.  Fitch believes that negative
rating actions would likely coincide with a leveraging
transaction, the adoption of a more aggressive financial strategy,
or a perceived weakening of Charter's competitive position.

Fitch affirms the following ratings:

CCH II, LLC

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

CCO Holdings, LLC

  -- IDR at 'BB-';
  -- Senior secured term loan at 'BB+';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BB-'.

Charter Communications Operating, LLC

  -- IDR at 'BB-';
  -- Senior secured credit facility at 'BB+';
  -- Senior secured second lien notes at 'BB+'.

----------------------------------------------------------
China Ginseng Holdings, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form
10-Q, reporting a net loss of $412,259 on $892,405 of revenues for

there are existing uncertain conditions the Company faces relative
to its ability to obtain working capital and operate successfully.

CIRCLE STAR: To Acquire Permian Basin Oil Production
----------------------------------------------------
Circle Star Energy Corp. announced the acquisition of a 3.167%
non-operated interest in the Glass Prospect, located in Glasscock
County, Texas.  The Company will issue an aggregate of
approximately 203,500 common shares of the Company (valued at
approximately $380,677) to five sellers as consideration for the
acquisition.  Year-to-date cash flow from the project has averaged
approximately $4,000 per month.  The acquisition is subject to due
diligence by the Company and customary closing conditions.  There
are no assurances that these conditions will be satisfied,
fulfilled or waived.

The Acquisition Shares have not and will not be registered under
the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the laws
of any state of the United States.  Accordingly, the Acquisition
Shares are "restricted securities" and may not be offered or sold
in the United States absent registration or an applicable
exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities
Act.  The Acquisition Shares will be placed pursuant to exemptions
from the registration requirements of the Securities Act provided
by Section 4(2) thereof.

The project area encompasses 1,280 gross acres and 640 net mineral
acres located in the oil-rich Permian basin region and is operated
by Apache Corporation.  The operator has already drilled 4
Spraberry wells and is evaluating the potential for additional
development.

Covering 2,500 square miles and six Texas counties, the Spraberry
Formation is one of the largest in the nation for total proved
reserves.  The formation produces oil from a single enormous
sedimentary unit located between the depths of 5,100 and 8,300
feet.  In 2007, the U.S. Department of Energy ranked the Spraberry
Trend third in the United States by total proved reserves and
seventh in total production.  Estimated reserves for the entire
Spraberry-Dean unit exceed 10 billion barrels. To-date the
formation has produced an estimated one billion barrels of oil.

While development on the Glass Prospect leases has focused on the
Spraberry formation to-date, the project is prospective for both
Fusselmen and Cline Shale opportunities.  Apache is actively
drilling horizontal Cline shale wells in the same field as the
Glass prospect, and a recent Cline well drilled by Apache produced
8,800 bbl of oil equivalent in the first 30 days on-line.

Company CEO Jeff Johnson comments, "We are very pleased to
announce this latest opportunity for our shareholders.  It expands
our overall asset mix, and perhaps most importantly, strengthens
and broadens our relationship with a growing number of top-notch
operators working throughout the region. Our immediate aim has
been to develop opportunities to increase  our asset portfolio and
industry profile, and we couldn't be more pleased with the recent
results of those efforts."

Further details regarding the Company, its appointments, finances
and agreements are filed as part of the Company's continuous
public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission's EDGAR database.  For more information visit:

CLARE OAKS: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
------------------------------------------------------
Alyssa Gerace at Senior Housing News reports that Sisters of St.
Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, to restructure
the debt of Clare Oaks, a Bartlett, Illinois, located continuing
care retirement community,

According to the report, the community plans to restructure its
debt with the help of Paul Rundell, a certified insolvency
restructuring advisor and certified turnaround professional.

The report relates Mr. Rundell said the reason for the voluntary
bankruptcy filing stems from the company failing to negotiate an
out-of-court restructuring with its pre-bankruptcy secured
lenders.

"Senior living facilities have experienced substantial declines in
occupancy as a result of market changes," the report quotes Mr.
Rundell as saying.  "Because of these challenging market
conditions, [Clare Oaks] has experienced lower than anticipated
revenue and a slower than anticipated fill up of the Clare Oaks
Campus, which has caused the Debtor to default under its bond
obligations."

The report says the company's assets as of June 30 were stated at
$107.2 million, with a debt of $136.9 million, and a recorded
revenue of $19 million for the fiscal year that ended on that
date.  The community is managed by an affiliate of Life Care
Services LLC, and will continue to operate, according to a
statement by Michael Hovde Jr., the president of the non-profit's
board.

                   About Competitive Technologies

Fairfield, Conn.-based Competitive Technologies, Inc. (OTC QX:
CTTC) -- http://www.competitivetech.net/-- was established in
1968.  The Company provides distribution, patent and technology
transfer, sales and licensing services focused on the needs of its
customers and matching those requirements with commercially viable
product or technology solutions.  Sales of the Company's
Calmare(R) pain therapy medical device continue to be the major
source of revenue for the Company.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 2, 2010,
Mayer Hoffman McCann CPAs, in New York, expressed substantial
doubt about Competitive Technologies' ability to continue as a
going concern, following the Company's results for the fiscal year
ended July 31, 2010.  The independent auditors noted that at
July 31, 2010, the Company has incurred operating losses since
fiscal year 2006.

The Company also reported a net loss of $1.84 million on
$3.33 million of product sales for the nine months ended Sept. 30,
2011, compared with a net loss of $2.30 million on $1.67 million
of product sales for the nine months ended Oct. 31, 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed
$5.95 million in total assets, $6.36 million in total liabilities,
all current, and a $409,428 total shareholders' deficit.


COMSTOCK RESOURCES: S&P Alters Outlook on 'BB-' Rating to Negative
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on Frisco,
Texas-based Comstock Resources to negative from stable and
affirmed the 'BB-' corporate credit rating.

"We revised the recovery rating on the company's senior unsecured
debt to '5' from '6', indicating our expectation of modest (10% to
30%) recovery for lenders in the event of a default and as a
result raised the issue rating one notch to 'B+' from 'B'," S&P
said.

"The revised outlook on Comstock reflects the incremental debt
leverage and tighter liquidity associated with the announced $333
million acquisition of properties in the Delaware Basin, West
Texas from privately held Eagle Oil & Gas Co.," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Carin Dehne-Kiley. The revised outlook also
reflects added uncertainty regarding production growth and costs
in what will be a new operating area for Comstock. Although the
acquisition increases Comstock's projected oil production in 2012,
the company remains highly levered to weak natural gas prices.

The revised recovery rating and issue-level rating reflect a
higher PV-10 valuation based on mid-year 2011 proven reserves as
well as the proven reserves associated with the announced
acquisition.

"Comstock is acquiring proven reserves of 23.2 million barrels of
oil equivalent (75% oil and 10% developed), and 1.4 thousand boe
per day of production, which adds 13% to its year-end 2010 proven
reserve base and 3% to its total equivalent production. The
acquisition also adds 44,000 net acres prospective in the Bone
Spring and Wolfcamp oil shales. The deal establishes a new core
operating area for Comstock in the Permian Basin of West Texas
(the Delaware Basin is located in the western Permian Basin),
where the company has recently acquired 12,000 net acres in
separate transactions, and we expect will continue to expand. The
acquisition is slated to close by year-end 2011," S&P said.

"Comstock will fund the acquisition by drawing down on its
revolving credit facility ($700 million borrowing base post-deal),
increasing its projected debt to EBITDA to 3.7x at year-end 2011
and 3.3x at year-end 2012, from about 3x for both years prior to
the deal. Our estimates account for a substantial increase in
capital spending next year to $545 million from $380 million
previously, with $170 million allocated to the newly-acquired
assets, which we estimate will exceed operating cash flow by about
$200 million. We expect this capital program to increase
Comstock's crude oil production to 20% of its total volumes by
year-end 2012, up from 4%," S&P said.

"The 'BB-' rating on Comstock reflects our expectation that
natural gas prices will remain weak over the medium-term, which
will pressure the company's profitability while it shifts capital
to oil projects. Additional factors we incorporate are Comstock's
small and geographically concentrated reserve base and our
estimate that the company will outspend operating cash flows in
2011 and 2012. Our ratings also take into account Comstock's
experienced management team and competitive cost structure," S&P
said.

"The negative outlook reflects our view that the company's debt
leverage will increase over the next 12 months to levels slightly
above our expectations for the rating category, while liquidity
tightens. The outlook also reflects the increased uncertainty
regarding production growth and costs in a new operating area for
Comstock, and its still high leverage to weak natural gas prices.
We could lower the rating if debt-to-EBITDA exceeds 3.5x for a
sustained period, which would most likely occur as a result of oil
production from the Permian acquisition not ramping up as
expected. We could revise the outlook to stable if debt-to-EBITDA
returns to the 3.0x level," S&P said.

CONSOL ENERGY: Moody's Confirms 'Ba3' Corporate Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed the Corporate Family Ratings
(CFR) of Consol Energy Inc. at Ba3 and the ratings of Consol's
senior unsecured debt at B1. The outlook is stable. This concludes
the review initiated in August 2011 following CONSOL's
announcement that it has entered into an agreement with Noble
Energy, Inc. (Noble; Baa2, stable) for the joint development of
CONSOL's 628,000 Marcellus Shale acres in Pennsylvania and West
Virginia.

Outlook Actions:

   Issuer: CONSOL Energy Inc.

   -- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Rating Under Review

Confirmations:

   Issuer: CONSOL Energy Inc.

   -- Probability of Default Rating, Confirmed at Ba3

   -- Corporate Family Rating, Confirmed at Ba3

   -- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Confirmed at B1,
      LGD4 - 66%

RATINGS RATIONALE

The rating reflects risks stemming from the persistently low
natural gas prices, as well as some of the challenges facing the
US coal industry. While Moody's still expects that CONSOL's recent
joint ventures with Noble and Hess Corporation (Hess; Baa2,
stable) will provide strategic benefit to CONSOL, Moody's believes
that the company's ability to ramp up production in its gas
division will be hampered by the low natural gas prices.

The rating considers the fact that joint venture transactions
incorporate significant cash payments to Consol over the next
several years, and Moody's expectation that Consol will benefit
from the expertise and know-how of its partners, while reducing
its otherwise substantive capital expenditures. Moody's notes,
however, that Noble's obligation to carry 33% of Consol's share of
joint venture's drilling and completion costs gets suspended once
gas prices fall below $4.00 per MMBtu for three consecutive months
and does not resume until gas prices stay above $4.00 per MMBtu
for three consecutive months. In light of the fact that Henry Hub
natural gas spot price stayed below $4.00/MMBtu since early
September, and Moody's expectation that gas prices will hover
around the $4.00 mark throughout 2012, Moody's believes that
Consol will not be able to benefit from joint venture carry
payments to the level previously anticipated. Moody's also
believes that the partners are likely to delay their capital
investment plans in light of these conditions, which would prevent
the ramp up in gas production at the levels previously
anticipated.

Consol's ratings also take into account the challenges facing its
coal division and the US coal industry as a whole, including
falling domestic consumption of coal as a result of fuel switching
in favor of natural gas and other sources, uncertainties stemming
from regulatory developments targeting carbon and other emissions,
as well as escalating costs due to enhanced federal scrutiny over
mine safety. Moody's believes that the company's margins will
become pressured if natural gas prices stay at their current
levels, while the company's coal division experiences falling
production volumes combined with increasing per-unit costs.

Consol's ratings continue to reflect the company's leading
position in the Northern Appalachian coal basin, meaningful
metallurgical (met) coal production, sizable presence in the gas
business, large reserves of coal and natural gas, and generally
large scale mines. The rating also recognizes its strong operating
cash flow and the stability provided by its long-term thermal coal
supply agreements. On the other hand, the ratings consider the
company's heightened leverage following last year's acquisitions
of the gas operations of Dominion Resources and the 17% of CNX Gas
that it did not already own, as well as the higher risk profile
associated with the Gas Division, one facet of which is the
sizable development costs. In addition, the rating considers
Consol's sizable pension, OPEB, workers' compensation and
reclamation liabilities.

Consol's Marcellus Shale joint venture with Noble allows Noble to
acquire a 50% interest in roughly 600k acres for consideration of
$1.0 billion over three years. In addition, Noble is to pay
roughly $2.1 billion for 33% of CONSOL's share of the well
development costs. Noble's carry obligations get suspended if gas
prices track at less than $4.00/ MMBtu for three consecutive
months. This transaction helps CONSOL recoup a large portion of
the total amount spent to acquire Dominion in 2010. CONSOL's Utica
Shale joint venture with Hess allows Hess to acquire a 50%
interest in roughly 200k acres for $60 million upfront and an
additional $534 million in the form of a 50% drilling carry of
CONSOL's share of the development costs.

Consol's ratings could be raised if the company's EBIT margins
remain sustainable at presently strong levels (13%-18%), (CFO-
Dividends)/ Debt remains sustainable at over 20%, free cash flow
is not persistently negative, its EBIT/ Interest ratio is in 3.5x-
4.0x range on a sustainable basis, and debt to capital ratio falls
below 50%.

Consol's ratings could come under pressure if EBIT margins fall
below 3%, (CFO-Dividends)/ Debt falls below 10%, free cash flow is
persistently negative, its EBIT/ Interest ratio falls below 2.5x,
or debt to capital ratio approaches 65% .

The principal methodology used in rating Consol Energy Inc was the
Global Mining Industry Methodology published in May 2009. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-
Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA
published in June 2009.

Consol is a leading diversified fuel producer in the Eastern U.S.
It has 4.4 billion tons of coal reserves and 3.7 trillion cubic
feet of proven gas reserves. The company generated $5.8 billion in
revenues for the twelve months through September 30, 2011.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Consolidation Services, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form
10-Q, reporting a net loss of $114,307 on $74,846 of oil and gas
for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2011, compared with a net
loss of $501,211 on $70,861 of oil and gas revenues for the same
period in 2010.

For the nine months ended  30, 2011, the Company has reported a
net loss of $947,250 on $239,973 of oil and gas revenues, compared

in total assets, $405,764 in total liabilities, and stockholders'
equity of $4.8 million.

Consolidation Services' ability to continue as a going concern,
following the Company's 2010 results.  The independent auditors
noted that the Company sustained losses from operations for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2010, of $13.2 million, has inadequate working
capital to maintain or develop its operations, and is dependent
upon funds from lenders, investors and the support of certain
stockholders.

respect to the month ending Oct. 31, 2011, as required by the Loan
And Security Agreement dated March 31, 2008, and as amended April

CROSSOVER FINANCIAL: Taps Matt Call as to Market Colorado Property
------------------------------------------------------------------
Crossover Financial I, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Colorado for permission to employ Matt Call of
Navpoint Real Estate Group as real estate broker in connection
with the sale of the property.

Mr. Call will market these:

   1. PARCEL A -- the southwest quarter and the west half of the
southeast quarter of section 19, township 11 south, range 66 west
of the 6th p.m., County of El Paso, State of Colorado.

   2. PARCEL B  -- the east half of the of the southeast quarter
of section 24, township 11 south, range 66 west of the 6th p.m.,
County of El Paso, State of Colorado.

   3. PARCEL C -- the northeast quarter of the northeast quarter
of section 25, township 11 south, range 66 west of the 6th p.m.,
County of El Paso, State of Colorado.

   4. PARCEL D -- the north half of the northwest quarter of
section 30, township 11 south, range 66 west of the 6th p.m.,
County of El Paso, State of Colorado.

The Debtor proposes to pay Mr. Call a sale commission of 5.0% of
the gross purchase price (6.0% if a cooperative broker is
involved) out of the gross proceeds of any completed sale of such
property upon separate application and approval of the Court.

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

In this relation, the Debtor withdraws its application to appoint
and employ Karen McClaflin of Home Source Realty, LLC as real
estate broker and approve listing contract.

On Oct. 20, 2011, the Debtor filed an employment application,
however, Philip DeCelles and the Bowman Group had filed objections
alleging that the broker may not be qualified to represent the
estate.  Ms. McClaflin has also indicated to the Debtor that she
no longer desires to assist in the sale of the property.

                     About Crossover Financial

Crossover Financial I, LLC, based in Elizabeth, Colorado, was
formed on Aug. 12, 2005.  Mitchell B. Yellen is the manager and
sole member.  The Company was formed for the purpose of raising
funds through a Private Placement Memorandum to be loaned to an
entity known as HPR, LLC, in connection with the acquisition and
development of 440 acres of real property located in El Paso
County.

HPR consisted of three members: Colorado Commercial Builders, Inc.
(37.5%); DJT, LLC (20.0%); and Yellen Family Partnership, LLLP
(42.5%).  Mitchell Yellen held an interest in the Yellen Family
Partnership, LLLP.

The project stalled primarily as a result of a collapse in the
residential real estate development market in 2007 and potential
developers pulled out of the project.  There has been no
further development activity on the Real Property since 2007.

Faced with the prospect of a lengthy foreclosure proceeding, the
Debtor entered into to an agreement with HPR whereby the Real
Property was transferred to the Debtor by way of a deed-in-lieu
of foreclosure.  Upon acquiring the Real Property, the Debtor
attempted to bring in additional developers to continue the
project but those efforts were unsuccessful.

The Company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Colo. Case
No. 11-24257) on June 15, 2011.  Judge Sidney B. Brooks presides
over the case.

Stephen C. Nicholls, Esq., at Nicholls & Associates, P.C., in
Denver, serves as bankruptcy counsel.  In its petition, the Debtor
estimated assets and debts of $10 million to $50 million.  The
petition was signed by Mitchell B. Yellen.  Karen McClaflin of
Home Source Realty, LLC, Colorado acts as real estate broker for
the Estate.

Charles F. Mcvay, The United States Trustee for Region 19, said
that a committee under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 1102 has not been appointed
because an insufficient number of persons holding unsecured claims
against Crossover Financial I, LLC, have expressed interest in
serving on a committee.

DESERT OASIS: Amends Plan to Include Laundry Room Lease Assumption
------------------------------------------------------------------
Desert Oasis Apartmants, LLC, notified the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Nevada of its Amended Plan of Reorganization
to provide that the lease of the laundry rooms to WASH Multifamily
Laundry Systems will be assumed.

WASH Multifamily is successor in interest to Web Service Company,
Inc.

The Debtor relates that there are no defaults by either party
under the lease and therefore no cure amounts.

A full-text copy of the motion and the lease is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/DESERTOASIS_plan_amendment.pdf

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 14, 2011,
Judge Bruce A. Markell gave the Debtor the go signal to commence
solicitation of votes for their Plan of Reorganization after
approving the explanatory disclosure statement on Sept. 6, 2011.

The Debtor's Amended Plan, filed Sept. 2, provides for one class
of priority claims; one class of secured claims; one class of
unsecured claims; and one class of equity security holders.

Under the Plan, the rights of tenants of the Debtor's apartment
complex in Las Vegas are unimpaired.  Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as
trustee for the Registered Holders of JPMorgan Chase Commercial
Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates, Series 2004-FL1, will receive
distributions which the proponent of the Plan has valued at 100
cents on the dollar.  The Plan proposes to pay the Bank's claim in
full over a period of 10 years using the rental income from
Tenants to pay interest at the rate of 4.5% per annum interest and
principal amortized over 25 years and a balloon payment on or
before 10 years.  The final payment will be accomplished through
sale or refinancing as the mortgage markets become more normal.
Tenants with priority claims for deposits will be paid 100% in the
normal course of operation of the apartment complex.

Under the Plan, the unsecured claim of Tom Gonzales is unimpaired.
Under the Plan, the unsecured creditors, except insiders, will be
paid over 11 months without interest.  Under the Plan, insiders
will agree to subordinate their claims to the claims of other
unsecured creditors.  The Plan also provides for the 100% payment
of all other administrative, including fees payable to the Office
of the United States Trustee, and priority claims upon
confirmation.

DETROIT, MI: Moody's Reviews Ba3 Debt Rating for Downgrade
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has placed the City of Detroit's (MI)
Ba3 general obligation and certificate of participation debt
ratings, as well as its B1 general obligation limited tax debt
rating, on review for possible downgrade. The ratings for the
city's Water and Sewer Enterprises, each rated A1 for senior lien
revenue debt and A2 for second lien revenue debt, were also placed
on review for possible downgrade. These actions follow the
announcement by the State of Michigan (GO rated Aa2/stable
outlook) Treasurer Andy Dillon that the state will commence a 30
day review of the city's finances on December 6, 2011 to determine
whether a citywide financial emergency exists. Prior to the
action, the outlook for all of these ratings was negative.

The state appointment of an emergency manager would in turn
trigger a termination event under the city's swap agreements,
potentially requiring the city to pay a termination fee, which is
estimated at $400 million (based on November 30th market
valuation) to swap counterparties. The swap agreements are
associated with the city's Series 2006 Certificates of
Participation (COPs), which were issued to partially fund the
city's pension liabilities. $800 million of the city's COPs are in
variable rate mode. The city's swap counterparties are Siebert
Brandford Shank & Co. (unrated), guaranteed by Merrill Lynch
(Baa1/ negative outlook), and UBS (Aa3/review for downgrade).
Additionally, the city faces a heightened risk of filing for
bankruptcy should an emergency manager be appointed. However, the
ultimate credit impact of the appointment of an emergency manager,
if one is appointed, is uncertain as a statewide effort is
underway to place on the November 2012 ballot an action to repeal
the Local Government and School District Fiscal Accountability
Act, which governs the emergency manager process.

The placement of the city's general obligation, certificate of
participation and general obligation limited tax ratings on review
for possible downgrade reflects the aforementioned risks. The
city's water and sewer enterprise ratings are placed on review
given that they are city-owned and may not be completely immune to
the risks associated with a city bankruptcy filing. Appointment of
an emergency manager is a requisite step in the path toward state
approval for bankruptcy filing, although is not necessarily a
strong predictor of bankruptcy. The risk of a bankruptcy filing by
the city is in Moody's view a low risk event, but nonetheless has
a rising probability.

ENVIRO VORAXIAL: Posts $556,100 Net Loss in Third Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------
Enviro Voraxial Technology, Inc., filed its quarterly report on
Form 10-Q, reporting a net loss of $556,130 on $245,450 of
revenues for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2011, compared with
a net loss of $700,151 on $69,000 of revenues for the same period
of 2010.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011, the Company has reported
a net loss of $512,663 on $1.69 million of revenues, compared with
a net loss $1.53 million on $185,401 of revenues for the same
period last year.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed
$1.43 million in total assets, $1.39 million in total liabilities,
and stockholders' equity of $43,769.

As reported in the TCR on April 27, 2011, RBSM LLP, in New York
City, expressed substantial doubt about Enviro Voraxial
Technology's 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 has suffered recurring
losses from operations.

EQUITABLE OF IOWA: Moody's Cuts 'Ba1' Preferred Stock Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to A3 from A2 the
insurance financial strength (IFS) ratings of ING USA Annuity and
Life Insurance Company and its rated US life insurance affiliates.
The outlook on these ratings is stable. In the same rating action,
the Ba1 (hyb) preferred stock rating of Equitable of Iowa Capital
Trust II was affirmed with a positive outlook. The rating action
follows the pre-announcement by ING NV of an expected 4Q2011
earnings charge of Euro 900 million to Euro 1.1 billion for
changes in policyholder behavior assumptions related to the closed
block of variable annuity (VA) policies in its US operation.

RATING RATIONALE

Commenting on the downgrade, Moody's said that the reserve charge
is sizable relative to ING US's earnings and capital and weakens
the US operation's stand-alone credit quality. Moody's notes that
some support for the US operations to offset the reserve charge
may come from the wider ING Group.

The charge largely relates to assumption revisions for
policyholder lapsation (as well as for mortality, annuitization,
and utilization rates), and reflects the considerable risks and
volatility that are still associated with the company's VA
liabilities. "Although ING US has largely exited the business,
charges related to legacy VA policies continue to depress the
group's overall profitability and weaken capital adequacy, thereby
delaying its recovery" said Laura Bazer, Vice President and Senior
Credit Officer. "Moreover, greater policyholder efficiency in
capturing the value of their guaranteed benefits may be the source
of future charges," the analyst added.

Separately, the U.S. group faces the challenge and uncertainties
of separating from its parent company, particularly in terms of
establishing reliable and cost-effective stand-alone financing
arrangements, as it moves toward its planned IPO in 2012, Moody's
said.

The rating agency noted that the current A3 IFS ratings on ING US
are positioned at their stand-alone credit profile and do not
incorporate any uplift from being part of the ING Group given the
group's plan to IPO the US operations in 2012.

As a result of the large reserve increase, ING US' consolidated
NAIC Risk Based Capital (RBC) is expected to decline from its
estimated 490% at 3Q2011, but still remain over 425% at year-end
2011, which is considered good. However, the rating agency added
that the RBC ratio benefits from a reinsurance transaction with a
captive that is not as well capitalized. In addition, the
company's capital position is volatile under stress scenarios,
which could challenge capital adequacy once support from ING Group
is removed post IPO. ING US' exit from and de-emphasis of higher
risk, lower margin businesses should help improve the risk profile
of ING US' liabilities over time. The group continues to have a
strong position in the US pension and life insurance markets in
the US.

Commenting on the Ba1(hyb) preferred stock rating of Equitable of
Iowa Capital Trust II, the rating agency said that this trust
preferred debt rating is one notch below what is typically seen in
Moody's standard notching for insurance groups. This wider
notching continues to reflect the risk of a coupon deferral
associated with the execution risk posed by the ultimate parent,
ING Groep N.V.'s restructuring process. Nonetheless, the
affirmation of the rating with a positive outlook also reflects
the possibility that this rating may be upgraded, if and when the
risk associated with ING Group's restructuring process ends or
diminishes significantly.

Moody's said the following factors could lead to a further
downgrade of the ratings of ING US: 1) the erosion of ING US'
business franchise, distribution, and employee base, given the
potentially long lead time until the launch of the ING US IPO; 2)
returns on capital consistently below 4%; 3) NAIC RBC ratio
falling below 325% (including captive reinsurers); 4) adjusted
financial leverage greater than 35%; and 5) earnings coverage
below 4x.

These factors could lead to an upgrade: 1) reduction in earnings
volatility, resulting in returns on capital consistently at 6% or
better; 2) RBC ratio consistently at 375% or better, while
maintaining good capitalization at captive reinsurers; 3) adjusted
financial leverage less than 30%; and 4) earnings coverage greater
than 5x.

Moody's will comment separately on any rating implications of the
downgrade of ING US on ING Verzekeringen NV and ING Groep NV, and
on ratings guaranteed by them.

The following ratings were downgraded and now have a stable
outlook:

ING Life Insurance & Annuity Company: insurance financial strength
rating to A3 from A2;

ING USA Annuity and Life Insurance Company: insurance financial
strength to A3 from A2; short-term insurance financial strength to
P-2 from P-1;

Security Life of Denver Insurance Company: insurance financial
strength to A3 from A2; short-term insurance financial strength to
P-2 from P-1;

Reliastar Life Insurance Company: insurance financial strength to
A3 from A2;

Reliastar Life Insurance Company of New York: insurance financial
strength to A3 from A2;

ING Security Life Institutional Funding: funding agreement-backed
senior secured debt to A3 from A2; funding agreement-backed senior
secured program rating to (P)A3 from (P)A2;

ING USA Global Funding Trust 3: funding agreement-backed senior
secured debt to A3 from A2;

Lion Connecticut Holdings, Inc.: long-term issuer rating to Baa3
from Baa2.

These ratings were affirmed with a positive outlook:

Equitable of Iowa Capital Trust II: preferred stock at Ba1(hyb).

ING US companies are wholly indirectly owned subsidiaries of the
ING Verzekeringen N.V., and members of the ING Groep, N.V. Based
in Amsterdam, ING Verzekeringen N.V. had total shareholders'
equity of EUR19.6 billion as of 30 June 2011. ING Verzekeringen
reported Gross Premiums Written of EUR14.5 billion in the first
half of 2011, and a net income of EUR781 million.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Moody's Global
Rating Methodology for Life Insurers published in May 2010.


EVERGREEN ENERGY: Issues Arise Over Southern Coal Joint Venture
---------------------------------------------------------------
Evergreen Energy Inc. provided an update on its joint venture with
WPG Resources, Southern Coal Holdings (SCH), owned equally by
Evergreen and WPG.  During the past two weeks, WPG has been
conducting additional due diligence regarding the K-Fuel
technology and the SCH structure and has identified certain
issues.  Evergreen disagrees with WPG's characterization of these
issues as they pertain to Evergreen's rights to the technology and
ownership of SCH.  Evergreen is working to address these issues
with WPG in order to advance the development of SCH.

Judy Tanselle, Evergreen's president, stated, "WPG continues to
express its interest in pursuing the SCH joint venture with
Evergreen while assessing the impact of recent Evergreen
developments.  Our team has been working closely with the WPG
delegation in Denver to cooperatively resolve the identified
issues.  We will provide updates on our progress as appropriate."

                      About Evergreen Energy

Evergreen Energy Inc. has developed two, proprietary, patented,
and green technologies: the GreenCert(TM) suite of software and
services and K-Fuel(R).  GreenCert, which is owned exclusively by
Evergreen, is a science-based, scalable family of environmental
intelligence solutions that quantify process efficiency and
greenhouse gas emissions from energy, industrial and agricultural
sources and may be used to create verifiable emission reduction
credits.  K-Fuel technology significantly improves the performance
of low-rank coals, yielding higher efficiency and lowering
emissions.

The Company reported a net loss of $21.02 million on $403,000 of
total operating revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared
with a net loss of $58.53 million on $423,000 of total operating
revenue during the prior year.

The Company also reported a net loss of $6.83 million on $325,000
of total operating revenue for the nine months ended Sept. 30,
2011, compared with a net loss of $18 million on $303,000 of total
operating revenue for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed
$20.25 million in total assets, $18.86 million in total
liabilities, and $1.38 million in total stockholders' equity.

Hein & Associates LLP, in Denver, Colo., expressed substantial
doubt about Evergreen Energy's ability to continue as a going
concern.  The independent auditors noted that the Company has
suffered recurring losses from operations and has had recurring
cash used in operations.


EXPRESS INC: S&P Puts 'BB-' Corp. Credit Rating on Watch Positive
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its corporate credit
rating of 'BB-' on the Columbus, Ohio-based Express Inc. on
CreditWatch with positive implications. "In addition, we placed
our 'BB+' issue-level rating on Express' secured term loan and
'B+' issue-level rating on the $250 million senior notes on
CreditWatch with positive implications," S&P said.

"The CreditWatch placement follows Express' announcement that its
Board of Directors has authorized the company to repay the
outstanding balance of its $125 million secured term loan using
cash on hand," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Helena Song.
"It reflects our expectation that upon completion of the term loan
repayment, Express' credit metrics will further improve due to its
enhanced capital structure and exceed our expectations for the
current ratings," she added.

It also reflects S&P's belief that the company's operating
performance trend will remain positive.


FILENE'S BASEMENT: Shareholders Want Bid to Disband Panel Nixed
---------------------------------------------------------------
Martin Bricketto at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Syms Corp.
shareholders on Wednesday asked a Delaware bankruptcy court to
reject an attempt by unsecured creditors of Syms and Filene's
Basement LLC to disband a committee representing the shareholders'
interests, claiming they failed to show that the equity
committee's appointment was improper.

The U.S. Trustee formed the equity committee based on Syms'
declaration at the outset of the Chapter 11 case that the company
is solvent, with money to be left over for distribution to
shareholders.  The unsecured creditors' committee, however, argued
there's no need for an equity committee because Chief Executive
Marcy Syms, who owns more than 54% of the stock, by herself
adequately represents interests of shareholders.  Short of
disbanding the equity committee, the creditors' panel wants the
bankruptcy judge at a Dec. 14 hearing to cap the equity panel's
fees and expenses at $500,000.

                       About Filene's Basement

Massachusetts-based Filene's Basement, also called The Basement,
is the oldest off-price retailer in the United States.  The
Basement focuses on high-end goods and is known for its
distinctive, low-technology automatic markdown system.

Filene's Basement first filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
in August 1999.  Filene's Basement was bought by a predecessor of
Retail Ventures, Inc., the following year.  Retail Ventures in
April 2009 transferred the unit to Buxbaum.

Filene's Basement, Inc. and its affiliates filed for Chapter 22
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 09-11525) on May 4, 2009, represented by
lawyers at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP.  Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions serves as claims and notice agent.  The Debtors
estimated $50 million to $100 million in assets and $100 million
to $500 million in debts.

The 2009 Debtor was formally renamed FB Liquidating Estate,
following the sale of all of its assets to Syms Corp. in June
2009.

Pursuant to the Liquidating Plan confirmed in January 2010,
secured creditors in the Chapter 11 case have been paid in full,
and holders of priority, administrative and convenience class
claims have received 100% of their allowed claims.  As reported by
the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 20, 2010, Alan Cohen,
Chairman of Abacus Advisors LLC and Chief Restructuring Officer
for FB Liquidating Estate disclosed that a second distribution of
dividend checks to Filene's unsecured creditors amounting to 12.5%
of approved claims has been made, bringing the cumulative
distributions on unsecured claims to 62.5%.

On Nov. 2, 2011, Syms Corp. placed itself, Filene's Basement and
two other units in Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos.
11-13511 to 11-13514) after a failed bid to sell the business.
The two units are Syms Clothing Inc. and Syms Advertising Inc.

Judge Kevin J. Carey presides over the case.  Lawyers at Skadden
Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP serve as the Debtors' counsel.  The
Debtors tapped Rothschild Inc. as investment banker and Cushman
and Wakefield Securities, Inc., as real estate financial advisors.

Syms shuttered its namesake and Filene's Basement outlets upon the
bankruptcy filing and tapped a joint venture of Gordon Brothers
Retail Partners LLC and Hilco Merchant Resources LLC to run the
going-out-of-business sales.  The sale may continue until Jan. 31,
2012.

Filene's Basement estimated $1 million to $10 million in assets
and $50 million to $100 million in debts.  The petitions were
signed by Gary Binkoski, authorized representative of Filene's
Basement.

The official committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the
2011 case has retained Hahn & Hessen LLP as legal counsel.

Holders of equity in Syms Corp. pushed for an official
shareholders' committee and separation of the Syms and Filene's
Basement bankruptcy estates.

Gordon Brothers and Hilco are represented by Goulston & Storrs,
P.C. and Ashby & Geddes, P.A.


FILENE'S BASEMENT: Hires WeiserMazars LLP as Tax Provider
---------------------------------------------------------
Filene's Basement, also called The Basement, asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to employ
WeiserMazars LLP as tax provider.

Upon retention, the firm will, among other things:

   a. prepare and review the Debtors' annual federal and
      state tax provisions plus related supporting workpapers for

                     About Filene's Basement

Massachusetts-based Filene's Basement, also called The Basement,
is the oldest off-price retailer in the United States.  The
Basement focuses on high-end goods and is known for its
distinctive, low-technology automatic markdown system.

Filene's Basement first filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
in August 1999.  Filene's Basement was bought by a predecessor of
Retail Ventures, Inc., the following year.  Retail Ventures in
April 2009 transferred the unit to Buxbaum.

Filene's Basement, Inc. and its affiliates filed for Chapter 22
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 09-11525) on May 4, 2009, represented by
lawyers at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP.  Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions serves as claims and notice agent.  The Debtors
estimated $50 million to $100 million in assets and $100 million
to $500 million in debts.

The 2009 Debtor was formally renamed FB Liquidating Estate,
following the sale of all of its assets to Syms Corp. in June
2009.

Pursuant to the Liquidating Plan confirmed in January 2010,
secured creditors in the Chapter 11 case have been paid in full,
and holders of priority, administrative and convenience class
claims have received 100% of their allowed claims.  As reported by
the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 20, 2010, Alan Cohen,
Chairman of Abacus Advisors LLC and Chief Restructuring Officer
for FB Liquidating Estate disclosed that a second distribution of
dividend checks to Filene's unsecured creditors amounting to 12.5%
of approved claims has been made, bringing the cumulative
distributions on unsecured claims to 62.5%.

On Nov. 2, 2011, Syms Corp. placed itself, Filene's Basement and
two other units in Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos.
11-13511 to 11-13514) after a failed bid to sell the business.
The two units are Syms Clothing Inc. and Syms Advertising Inc.

Judge Kevin J. Carey presides over the case.  Lawyers at Skadden
Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP serve as the Debtors' counsel.  The
Debtors tapped Rothschild Inc. as investment banker and Cushman
and Wakefield Securities, Inc., as real estate financial advisors.

Syms shuttered its namesake and Filene's Basement outlets upon the
bankruptcy filing and tapped a joint venture of Gordon Brothers
Retail Partners LLC and Hilco Merchant Resources LLC to run the
going-out-of-business sales.  The sale may continue until Jan. 31,
2012.

Filene's Basement estimated $1 million to $10 million in assets
and $50 million to $100 million in debts.  The petitions were
signed by Gary Binkoski, authorized representative of Filene's
Basement.

The official committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the
2011 case has retained Hahn & Hessen LLP as legal counsel.

Holders of equity in Syms Corp. pushed for an official
shareholders' committee and separation of the Syms and Filene's
Basement bankruptcy estates.

Gordon Brothers and Hilco are represented by Goulston & Storrs,
P.C. and Ashby & Geddes, P.A.

FIRST FOLIAGE: Wants Reorganization Case Converted to Chapter 7
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida
will convene a hearing on Dec. 20, 2011, at 3:00 p.m., to consider
First Foliage, L.C.'s the motion to convert its case to one under
Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Debtor related that upon the consummation of the sale of
substantially all of its assets, all employees were terminated and
the Debtor is in the final stages of winding down its business
affairs as a debtor-in-possession.

The Debtor continued that it has considered the filing of a
liquidating Chapter 11 plan, and believes that the administrative
costs associated with the confirmation of a plan outweigh any
potential benefit associated with therewith.  Moreover, a Chapter
7 trustee will have the ability to continue pending litigation,
pursue any future litigation, and to continue to make
distributions to creditors, as appropriate.

The Debtor has consulted the with the counsel of the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors and the U.S. Trustee prior to the
filing of the motion.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 7, 2011,
Donald F. Walton, U.S. Trustee for Region 21, notified the Court
that he has withdrawn his motion to dismiss or convert the Chapter
11 case of the Debtor to one under Chapter 7.

As reported in the TCR on July 13, 2011, the U.S. Trustee said
that the Debtor has not paid the required statutory fee owed to
the U.S. Trustee in the amount of approximately $20,000 for the
first quarter of 2011.

                     About First Foliage, L.C.

Homestead, Florida-based First Foliage, L.C., once operated a

FRIENDLY ICE CREAM: Creditors Fight Sun Capital Claim
-----------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that unsecured creditors of
Friendly Ice Cream Corp. are escalating their campaign to have a
$268 million claim held by Sun Capital Partners Inc. reclassified
as equity, a move that would limit the buyout firm's ability to
bid debt in exchange for the restaurant chain's assets at an
upcoming auction.

                     About Friendly Ice Cream

Friendly Ice Cream Corp. -- http://www.friendlys.com/-- the owner
and franchiser of 490 full-service, family-oriented restaurants
and provider of ice cream products in the Eastern United States,
filed for Chapter 11 reorganization together with four affiliates
(Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 11-13167) on Oct. 5, 2011, to sell
the business mostly in exchange for debt to Sundae Group Holdings
II LLC, a unit of Sun Capital Partners Inc.  The existing owner
and holder of the Debtors' second-lien debt are also affiliates of
Sun Capital.  Friendly's, based in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, also
announced the closing of 63 stores, leaving about 424 operating.
Franchise operators have about 230 of the locations.

Judge Kevin Gross oversees the case.  James A. Stempel, Esq., Ross
M. Kwasteniet, Esq., and Jeffrey D. Pawlitz, Esq., at Kirkland &
Ellis LLP; and Laura Davis Jones, Esq., Timothy P. Cairns, Esq.,
and Kathleen P. Makowski, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones
LLP, serve as the Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.  Zolfo Cooper
serves as the Debtors' financial advisors.

In its petition, Friendly Ice Cream Corp. estimated $100 million
to $500 million in assets and debts.  The petitions were signed by
Steven C. Sanchioni, executive vice president, chief financial
officer, treasurer, and assistant secretary.

Sundae Group Holdings proposes to pay about $120 million for the
business.  The price includes enough cash to pay first-lien debt
and an amount of cash for unsecured creditors to be negotiated
with the official creditors' committee.  Aside from cash, Sun
Capital will make a credit bid from the $267.7 million in second-
lien, pay-in-kind notes.

The bid from Sun Capital is subject to higher and better offers
at an auction.  Under the proposed time-line, bids would be due
Nov. 24, followed by an auction on Dec. 1.  A competing bid must
be at least $122.6 million in cash.

Friendly's is one of two companies under Sun Capital's portfolio
to file for bankruptcy in a span of two days.  Mexican-food chain
Real Mex, which operates restaurants such as Chevys, filed in
Delaware bankruptcy court on Oct. 3, 2011.

On Oct. 12, 2011, the U.S. Trustee appointed the Committee.  The
Committee currently consists of seven members.  The Committee
selected Akin Gump Straus Hauer & Feld LLP and Blank Rome LLP to
serve as co-counsel to the Committee, and FTI Consulting to serve
as the Committee's financial advisor.

FURNITURE BY THURSTON: Final Cash Collateral Hearing Today
----------------------------------------------------------
KLN Steel Products Company LLC, Dehler Manufacturing Co. Inc.,
and Furniture by Thurston will return to the Bankruptcy Court in
Austin, Texas, today, Dec. 12, at 9:00 a.m., to seek final
approval of their request for continued use of cash collateral.
To the Debtors' knowledge, no creditors other than Banco Popular
North America claim liens on the Debtors' cash collateral.  The
Debtors won interim authority to use cash collateral on Nov. 23.
The Debtors said they are unable to pay the reasonable expenses of
their ongoing operations without permission for use of collateral
and cash collateral in which security interests and liens are
claimed by the Lender.

On Nov. 15, 2006, the Debtors entered into Credit and Term Loan
Agreement with Banco Popular.  On Nov. 18, 2011, the Lender
refused to fund KLN's payroll effectively shutting down all of
KLN's operations and ability to finish jobs or to otherwise
fulfill customer orders.  The Lender asserts claims against the
Debtors for $30 million.  The Lender asserts that its debt is
secured by substantially all of the Debtors property.  The Debtors
estimate that the Lender claims a security interest in property
the value of which -- according to the Lender?s own appraisals --
exceeds its debt by $11,997,284.

GELT PROPERTIES: Committee Objects to Foreclosure of Real Property
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Chapter 11
cases of Gelt Properties, LLC and Gelt Financial Corporation, asks
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
to deny the Debtors' motion to foreclose upon certain real
property and approve foreclosure and loan payoff procedures.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 9, 2011, the
Debtors relate that currently, their properties are generally
encumbered by liens of various traditional lenders.

The Debtors sought to foreclose upon certain of the remaining
properties, as circumstance give rise to such an exercise of the
Debtor's rights procedurally, free and clear of all liens, claims,
encumbrances, and interests, including but not limited to (i) all
mortgages, judgments, liens and lis pendens of records; and (ii)
all claims of ownership or other equitable rights of any party of
any kind and all liens will attach to the proceeds of said sale.

The Debtors desired to implement a procedure whereby properties
can be foreclosed upon, maintained and ultimately sold or leased
to third party buyers or tenants without the need for individual
court approval of each foreclosure or sale.

With regards to the mortgage payoff letters, the Debtors proposed
to provide the affected lender with a copy of the payoff letter
sent to borrower along with a notice of proposed distribution to
the affected lender as a result of the payoff together with an
explanation of the calculation of the proposed distribution.

In its objection, FCB asserts that the foreclosure procedures as
outlined in the motion do not make sense and need to be further
clarified.

Concerning the "payoff procedures" provisions of the motion, FCB
will not approve the proposed procedure unless FCB provides prior
written approval to the Debtor of any proposed sale and FCB is
guaranteed payment in full from the sale of each property.

The Committee states that while it does not object to the Debtors
conducting its business in the ordinary course, there are multiple
problems with what the Debtor is proposing.  According to the
Committee, among other things:

   1. there has been no showing or determination of the secured
status of the various institutional lenders who purport to have
mortgages or liens encumbering the parcels of real estate which
the Debtors have taken liens and mortgages against as collateral
for the loans which the Debtor has made to various third party
borrowers;

   2. the Banks has to file proof of their entitlement to secured
claims against the Debtor and what priority, if any, such Banks
claim to have with respect to competing liens against the same
collateral;

   3. the motion failed to differentiate between the various
rights, claims and standings of the Bank who purportedly hold
secured claims against the Debtor;

   4. the motion failed to provide any information with regard to
how the properties are to be sold and at what price and what sale
terms nor does it direct a methodology to determine the fair
market value of the properties to be sold so that a reasonable
determination can be made as to whether a party-in-interest must
object to a particular sale.

GELT PROPERTIES: Lender Wants Adequate Security on Sale, Cash Use
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Univest Bank and Trust Company asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to deny Gelt Properties, LLC
and Gelt Financial Corporation's motion to use cash collateral.

As of the Petition Date, the outstanding balance under the loan
was approximately $4,545,344, secured by collateral assignment of
mortgages and rents and leases.

Univest explains that its interest in the cash collateral is not
adequately protected.

Univest also objects to the Debtors' motion dated Oct. 20, for
authority to sell certain real property.

According to Univest, the Debtors' sale motion does not adequately
protect its interest in the sale proceeds.  Univest adds that
without a Court-approved process for timely payment to Univest in
accordance with the loan documentation each time a sale occurs,
Univest's security interest in the sale proceeds is not adequately
protected; and the Debtor has failed to obtain Court approval of a
process for foreclosing on defaulted mortgages on the mortgages
properties.

GENMED HOLDINGS: Board Approves Dismissal of Meyler & Company
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Genmed Holding Corp. approved the
dismissal of Meyler & Company, LLC, as the Company's independent
registered public accounting firm.

During the fiscal years ended Dec. 31, 2010, and 2009, and during
the period from Jan. 1, 2011, through Dec. 1, 2011, the Company
had (i) no disagreements with Meyler & Co. on any matter of
accounting principles or practices, financial statement
disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, any of which that, if
not resolved to Meyler & Co.'s satisfaction, would have caused it
to make reference to the subject matter of any such disagreement
in connection with its reports for those years and interim periods
and (ii) no reportable events within the meaning of Item
304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K during the two most recent fiscal
years or the subsequent interim period.

As of Dec. 31, 2010, the Company had material weaknesses related
to internal controls over financial reporting based on the
criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework
issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the
Treadway Commission.  Based on this evaluation under the criteria
established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework, the
Company's management concluded that the Company's internal control
over financial reporting was not effective as of Dec. 31, 2010.
Based on that evaluation, the Company's Chief Executive Officer
and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of that date, the
Company's disclosure controls and procedures required by paragraph
(b) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 or 15d-15, were not effective at
a reasonable assurance level.  Managements' assessment identified
the following material weaknesses:

   (1) As of Sept. 30, 2011, there was a lack of accounting
       personnel with the requisite knowledge of Generally
       Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) in the US and the
       financial reporting requirements of the Securities and
       Exchange Commission;

   (2) As of Sept. 30, 2011, there were insufficient written
       policies and procedures to insure the correct application
       of accounting and financial reporting with respect to
       current requirements of GAAP and SEC disclosure
       requirements;

   (3) As of Sept. 30, 2011, there was a lack of segregation of
       duties, in that the Company had only one person performing
       all accounting-related duties;

   (4) As of Sept. 30, 2011, there were no independent directors
       and no independent audit committee.

The reports of Meyler & Co. on the Company's consolidated
Financial Statements as of and for the years ended Dec. 31, 2010,
and 2009, contained an explanatory paragraph which noted that
there was substantial doubt as to the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern as the Company had a net loss and has
incurred cumulative net losses since inception.

Effective Dec. 1, 2011, the Company approved the engagement of
Malone & Bailey LLP as the Company's independent registered
certified public accounting firm.

During the fiscal years ended Dec. 31, 2010, and 2009, and during
the period from Jan. 1, 2011, through December 1, neither the
Company nor anyone on its behalf has consulted with Malone &
Bailey LLP regarding (i) the application of accounting principles
to a specific transaction, either completed or proposed; or the
type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's
financial statements, and neither a written report was provided to
the Company or oral advice was provided that Malone & Bailey LLP
concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in
reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial
reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a
disagreement as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of
Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304 of
Regulation S-K, or any reportable event as that term is defined in
Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

GOLDEN NUGGET: S&P Raises Corporate Credit Rating to 'B-'
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its corporate credit
rating on Nevada-based Golden Nugget Inc. to 'B-' from 'CC'. The
rating outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we raised our issue-level rating on Golden
Nugget's first-lien credit facilities to 'B-' (the same as the
corporate credit rating on the company) from 'CC', and maintained
our recovery rating of '3' on the first-lien credit facilities,
indicating our expectation of meaningful (50% to 70%) recovery for
lenders in the event of a payment default. We also raised the
rating on the company's second-lien credit facility to 'CCC' (two
notches lower than the corporate credit rating) from C, and
maintained our recovery rating of '6' on the second-lien term
loan, indicating our expectation of negligible (0 to 10%) recovery
for lenders in the event of payment default," S&P said.

"We removed all ratings from CreditWatch, where they were placed
with positive implications on Sep. 29, 2011," S&P related.

"The rating upgrade reflects Golden Nugget's solid performance
thus far in 2011, which meaningfully exceeded our previous
performance expectations," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Melissa Long.

"In the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011, Golden Nugget's revenue
grew in the mid-single digit area and EBITDA increased in the
high-teens percentage area. Like other Las Vegas operators, Golden
Nugget has benefited from meaningful operating leverage in 2011,
given the improvement in room rates in the market. (The company
generates approximately three-quarters of its EBITDA at its
downtown Las Vegas property.) We believe that Golden Nugget will
continue benefitting from improving performance trends in Las
Vegas in 2012. As a result of the company's meaningful improvement
in profitability, along with some meaningful debt repayment,
Golden Nugget's operating lease adjusted leverage has improved
about 2x from the same period a year ago and coverage has improved
to the mid-1x area. Furthermore, we believe that the company's
current level of EBITDA, which covers fixed charges with a
sufficient cushion, is sustainable," S&P said.

"Our 'B-' corporate credit rating on Golden Nugget reflects our
assessment of its financial risk profile as 'highly leveraged', as
we define the term, given high debt balances, despite our
expectation that EBITDA coverage of interest will remain in the
mid-1x area and that it will generate modest discretionary
cash flow that can be used to repay debt," S&P related.

"The rating also incorporates our assessment of Golden Nugget's
business risk profile as 'weak', primarily because of limited
diversification and scale from its ownership of two properties in
Nevada, the concentration of its cash flows in the mature downtown
Las Vegas market, and the volatility of that market during the
recent economic recession. Somewhat offsetting these factors is
Golden Nugget's high quality assets, its leading market position
in downtown Las Vegas in addition to recent improvements to the
property including the opening of Rush Tower, as well as its
recent outperformance relative to other casinos in the market,"
S&P said.


GRAY TELEVISION: Zell Miller Retires from Board of Directors
------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Zell B. Miller, age 79, announced his retirement from the
board of directors of Gray Television, Inc., effective on Dec. 7,
2011.

                       About Gray Television

Formerly known as Gray Communications System, Atlanta, Georgia-
based Gray Television, Inc., is a television broadcast company.
Gray currently operates 36 television stations serving 30 markets.
Each of the stations are affiliated with either CBS (17 stations),
NBC (10 stations), ABC (8 stations) or FOX (1 station).  In
addition, Gray currently operates 38 digital second channels
including 1 ABC, 4 Fox, 7 CW, 16 MyNetworkTV and 1 Universal
Sports Network affiliates plus 8 local news/weather channels and 1
"independent" channel in certain of its existing markets.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $1.23
billion in total assets, $1.08 billion in total liabilities,
$31.33 million in preferred stock and $125.45 million in total
stockholders' equity.

                           *     *     *

Gray Television carries 'B-' issuer credit ratings, with stable
outlook, from Standard & Poor's and 'Caa1' corporate family rating
and probability of default rating, with stable outlook, from
Moody's.

"Moody's views the company's current level of financial leverage,
as exacerbated by a concentrated maturity profile, to be
unsustainable for a TV broadcaster and indicative of elevated
restructuring risk over the longer-term," said Moody's Russell
Solomon, Senior Vice President, in April 2010.  Pro forma for the
pending transaction, all of Gray's debt (including its debt-like
Series D Preferred Stock) comes due in 2014-2015.  Moody's
believes Gray will need to significantly reduce its debt with free
cash flow and will probably need to issue additional equity in
order to further moderate its leverage profile over the next few
years prior to accessing the capital markets again to refinance
current obligations.  The Caa1 CFR incorporates Moody's view that
leverage will remain excessive over at least the next two years.

----------------------------------------------------------
HD Supply, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q, reporting a net loss
of $105 million on $2.07 billion of net sales for the three months
ended Oct. 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of $99 million on
$1.87 billion of net sales for the three months ended Oct. 31,
2010.

The Company reported a net loss of $619 million on $7.47 billion
of revenue for the fiscal year ended Jan. 30, 2011, compared with
a net loss of $514 million on $7.42 billion of net sales for the
fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2010.

The Company reported a net loss of $370 million on $5.89 billion
of net sales for the nine months ended Oct. 30, 2011, compared
with a net loss of $416 million on $5.42 billion of net sales for

million total stockholders' deficit.

Joe DeAngelo, CEO of HD Supply, stated, "The third quarter results

                         About HD Supply

HD Supply, Inc., headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is one of the
largest North American wholesale distributors supporting

extent electrical consumption and repair and remodeling.  HDS also
provides maintenance, repair and operations services.  Its
businesses are organized around three segments: Infrastructure and

                           *     *     *

HD Supply carries 'Caa2' probability of default rating and
corporate family rating, with negative outlook, from Moody's
Investors Service, and a 'B' corporate credit rating, with
negative outlook, from Standard & Poor's Ratings Services.

In April 2010, when Moody's downgraded the ratings to
'Caa2' from 'Caa1', it said, "The downgrade results from Moody's
views that the construction industry, the main driver of HDS'
revenues, will continue to be weak for the foreseeable future,
pressuring the company's ability to generate meaningful levels of
earnings and free cash flow relative to its debt."

nation's leading domestic ocean shipping and integrated logistics
company.  The Company owns or leases a fleet of 20 U.S.-flag
containerships and operates five port terminals linking the

and Puerto Rico.  The Company provides express trans-Pacific
service between the U.S. West Coast and the ports of Ningbo and
Shanghai in China, manages a domestic and overseas service partner
network and provides integrated, reliable and cost competitive
logistics solutions.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 25, 2011, showed
$677.4 million in total assets, $801.7 million in total
liabilities, and a stockholders' deficit of $124.3 million.

Ernst & Young LLP, in Charlotte, North Carolina, expressed
substantial doubt Horizon Lines' ability to continue as a going
concern, following the Company's results for the fiscal year ended
Dec. 26, 2010.  The independent auditors noted that there is
uncertainty that Horizon Lines will remain in compliance with
certain debt covenants throughout 2011 and will be able to cure
the acceleration clause contained in the convertible notes.

"The Company believes the Oct. 5, 2011 refinancing transactions
more fully described in Note 18 to these financial statements have
resolved the concern as to compliance with debt covenants
throughout the remainder of 2011," the Company said in the filing.
"In addition, the Company believes it will be in compliance with
its debt covenants through 2012."

                           Refinancing

The Company was not in compliance with the maximum senior secured
leverage ratio and the minimum interest coverage ratio under its
Senior Credit Facility at the close of its third fiscal quarter
ended Sept. 25, 2011.  Non-compliance with these financial
covenants constituted an event of default, which could have
resulted in acceleration of the maturity.  None of the
indebtedness under the Senior Credit Facility or Notes was
accelerated prior to the completion of a comprehensive refinancing
on Oct. 5, 2011.

The Senior Credit Facility and 99.3% of the 4.25% Convertible
Senior Notes were repaid as part of the refinancing.  In addition,
as a result of the completion of the refinancing, the short-term
obligations under the Senior Credit Facility, the Notes and the
Bridge Loan have been classified as long-term debt.

As a result of the efforts to refinance the Company's debt and the
2011 amendments to the Senior Credit Facility, the Company paid
$17.3 million in financing costs and recorded a loss on
modification of debt of $0.6 million during 2011.

contained in an indenture," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Funmi Afonja.

HSW International, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
reporting a net loss of $2.1 million on $1.2 million of revenues
for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2011, compared with a net
loss of $1.2 million on $2.0 million for the corresponding period
of 2010.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011, the Company has reported
a net loss of $4.8 million on $4.0 million of revenues, compared

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $5.7 million
in total assets, $1.1 million in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of $4.6 million.

"Based upon the Company's present cash resources and cash flow
projections, management believes that the Company's current
liquidity level will provide sufficient funds to enable the
Company to operate its businesses through the first quarter of
2012," the Company said in the filing.  "However, in order to
ensure the Company's financial viability beyond the first quarter
of 2012, management believes that the Company must raise
additional capital and successfully implement a strategic business
plan focused on expanding its web platform services business
segment while continuing to reduce its costs and operating losses
currently incurred by its digital online publishing business
segment."

"There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to raise
additional capital, renew its line of credit, generate more
revenues, implement cost savings measures or obtain short-term
financing from other sources in the future.

"If the Company is unable to raise additional capital, it may
decide to reallocate its resources or suspend our activities in
one or more of our markets in order to focus our limited resources
in other opportunities.  The aforementioned uncertainties
regarding the liquidity indicate that there is a substantial doubt
that the Company will be able to continue as a going concern."

JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
--------------------------------------------------------
The Ruth Hyman Jewish Community Center of Greater Monmouth County,
New Jersey, filed on Dec. 5, 2011, for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  Dan
Radel at Asbury Park Press reports the center has been in a
foreclosure suit with TD Bank, represented by the law firm
Buchanan Ingersoll and Rooney in Princeton, and was scheduled for
public auction by the Sheriff's Department at the Hall of Records
in Freehold on Dec. 5, 2011, when the center's board of directors
made the decision to file for bankruptcy.

"As we were not able to get an extension, it left us no other
option than to file for bankruptcy," Asbury Park Press quotes
Steve Levy, the president of the board of directors for the
center, as saying.

The center had requested two adjournments of the public auction on
Oct. 24, 2011, and Nov. 7, 2011, and could no longer request a
postponement. However, before the scheduled sale on Nov. 21, 2011,
TD Bank allowed for an additional adjournment, the report says.

Timothy Neumann of Broege, Neumann, Fisher and Shaver LLC,
represents the Center.  The center had estimated both assets and
liabilities of between $10 million and $50 million.  The center
also has listed it estimated number of unsecured creditors as
between 200 and 999.

KV PHARMACEUTICAL: Reports $271MM Fiscal 2011 Loss in Form 10-K/A
-----------------------------------------------------------------
K-V Pharmaceutical Company filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission amendments to its Annual Report on Form 10-K
for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2011, and Quarterly Report on
Form 10-Q for the period ended Dec. 31, 2010.

The Company issued warrants to purchase shares of its Class A
Common Stock in November 2010 and March 2011 to its lenders in
connection with certain financing transactions.

The Company originally classified the Warrants as equity
instruments from their respective issuance dates until the
March 17, 2011, amendment of the Warrant provisions which added a
contingency feature and an escrow requirement.  At that date, the
Warrants were revalued and reclassified from equity to
liabilities.  The Company also had originally used a Black-Scholes
option valuation model to determine the value of the Warrants.
Upon a re-examination of the provisions of the Warrants, the
Company determined that the non-standard anti-dilution provisions
contained in the Warrants require that the Warrants (a) all be
treated as liabilities from their respective issuance dates and
(b) their value should be calculated utilizing a valuation model
which considers the mandatory conversion features of the Warrants
and the possibility that the Company may issue additional common
shares or common share equivalents that, in turn, could result in
a change to the number of shares issuable upon exercise of the
Warrants and the related exercise price.  As a result, the Company
has revalued the Warrants from their respective dates of issuance
using a Monte Carlo simulation model and reclassified the Warrants
as a long term liability.

On Nov. 7, 2011, the Audit Committee of the Company's Board of
Directors, upon recommendation from management, determined that
the previously issued consolidated financial statements included
in the Company's Original Form 10-K and in the Company's Quarterly
Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended Dec. 31, 2010, and
June 30, 2011, should not be relied upon.  The restatements did
not change the Company?s reported cash and cash equivalents,
operating expenses, operating losses or cash flows from operations
for any period or date.

K-V Pharmaceutical's restated statement of operations reflects a
net loss of $271.70 million on $27.30 million of net revenues for
the year ended March 31, 2011, compared with a net loss of $283.60
million on $9.10 million of net revenues during the prior year.
The previous 10-K reported a net loss of $174 million on $27.30
million of net revenues for the year ended March 31, 2011,
compared with a net loss of $283.60 million on $9.10 million of
net revenues during the prior year.

The Company's restated statement of operations reflects a net loss
of $47.79 million on $5.42 million of net revenues for the three
months ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared with net income of $108.58
million on $147.48 million of net revenues for the same period a
year ago.  The original Form 10-Q reported a net loss of $46.66
million on $5.42 million of net revenues for the three months
ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared with net income of $108.58 million
on $147.48 million of net revenues during the prior year.

The Company's restated balance sheet at of March 31, 2011, showed
$564.70 million in total assets, $942.50 million in total
liabilities and a $377.80 million total shareholders' deficit,
compared with $564.70 million in total assets, $938.70 million in
total liabilities and a $374 million total shareholders' deficit.

KPMG LLP, in St. Louis, Missouri, expressed substantial doubt
about K-V Pharmaceutical's ability to continue as a going concern.
The independent auditors noted that the Company has suspended the
shipment of all products manufactured by it and must comply with a
consent decree with the FDA before approved products can be
reintroduced to the market.  Significant negative impacts on
operating results and cash flows from these actions including the
potential inability of the Company to raise capital; suspension of
manufacturing; significant uncertainties related to litigation and
governmental inquiries; and debt covenant violations.

L.A. DODGERS: Gets OK to Market Media Rights Over Fox Protest
-----------------------------------------------------------
Lance Duroni at Bankruptcy Law360 and Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy
Review report that Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross on Thursday said
he would allow the Los Angeles Dodgers to market rights to
broadcast their games from 2014 on, over the protest of Fox
Sports, the current broadcaster, which said the sale plan
threatens to damage its business.

According to Law360, Judge Gross indicated at the end of a two-day
hearing that the marketing procedures proposed by the Dodgers did
not drastically alter back-end contract rights designed to give
Fox the inside track on negotiating a new deal.

Crying foul over potential damages for breach of contract, Fox
Sports Net Inc. -- the Los Angeles Dodgers LLC's current broadcast
partner -- fought Wednesday to scuttle the team's plan to auction
its future television rights at a pivotal hearing in Delaware
bankruptcy court.  Law360 relates that the Fox affiliate that
operates as FSN Prime Ticket contends it has the exclusive right
under its current contract -- which expires after the 2013 season
-- to negotiate a new deal with the Dodgers until Nov. 30, 2012.

                     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

L.A. DODGERS: To Pay $1.1 Million Critical Vendors Claims
---------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware authorized Los Angeles Dodgers LLC, et al., to pay
prepetition claims owed to critical vendors in an aggregate amount

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Readies $1.33BB to Buy Banks' Stake in Archstone
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Eliot Brown and Mike Spector, writing for The Wall Street Journal,
report that people familiar with the matter said Lehman Brothers
Holdings Inc.'s bankruptcy estate is preparing to make a cash bid
for a chunk of Archstone it doesn't already own, in a move
designed to block real-estate mogul Sam Zell from grabbing the
piece of the large apartment company.  The sources said Lehman's
estate, which owns 47% of Archstone, is readying a $1.33 billion
cash bid for another 26.5% of the company, which owns stakes in
77,000 apartments in major cities across the U.S. and in Germany.

One source told WSJ that Lehman plans to file a bankruptcy-court
motion as soon as this week asking a judge for permission to use
the estate's cash to do the deal.

Mr. Zell's Equity Residential has reached an agreement to pay
$1.33 billion for the 26.5% stake from Bank of America Corp. and
Barclays PLC.  The banks currently own 53% of Archstone.  Lehman's
estate has the right to match any offer made for pieces of
Archstone it doesn't own.

The Journal says a Lehman spokeswoman had no immediate comment. An
Equity Residential spokesman declined to comment.

The Journal notes the Archstone deal is part of a massive effort
by Lehman's estate to wind down assets and pay $65 billion to
creditors.  The estate has about $20 billion to $30 billion in
cash for creditors so far and could spend another three to five
years unwinding remaining assets. Archstone is among its
significant remaining holdings.

The Journal says Lehman's estate wants to retain control of
Archstone and eventually raise money for creditors by taking it
public, betting on continued strength in the apartment market.

WSj says the fight over Archstone is complicated because, under
the ownership agreement, any large owner of Archstone has veto
power over major decisions.  According to the report, Mr. Zell's
deal for the two banks' stake values Archstone at about $16
billion, including about $11 billion in debt.

WSJ notes Lehman said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange
Commission earlier last week that it believes the values of
Archstone's properties are worth at least $1 billion more than
Equity Residential's bid implies. It further believes Mr. Zell's
bid didn't adequately value the management and operating platform
of the company.

(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 08-13555).  Lehman's bankruptcy

thereafter.

Additional units, Merit LLC, LB Somerset LLC and LB Preferred

District Court for the Southern District of New York, entered an
order commencing liquidation of Lehman Brothers, Inc., pursuant
to the provisions of the Securities Investor Protection Act (Case

trustee for the SIPA liquidation of the business of LBI.

At the onset of the Chapter 11 case, the Bankruptcy Court 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 house in Japan, purchased LBHI's operations in
Europe for US$2 plus the retention of most of employees.  Nomura
also bought Lehman's operations in the Asia Pacific for US$225
million.

On Dec. 6, 2011, Bankruptcy Judge James Peck confirmed Lehman
Brother's liquidation plan.  Lehman hopes for its plan to be
effective by the end of January.  The company will continue to
exist, however, as it still has pending litigation plus billions
of dollars in assets, mostly in real estate.

Bryan Marsal, Lehman's Court-appointed CEO, aims to raise $65
billion from Lehman assets in the next few years and will
distribute some of the $23 billion to creditors in the first
quarter.  Final claims are expected to total $370 billion, giving
the average creditor less than 18 cents on the dollar.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: UBS Fraudulently Hawked Notes, Says Vernon Healy
-----------------------------------------------------------------
UBS fraudulently misrepresented Lehman principal protected notes
in a heavy sales push to its brokerage firm clients at a time when
it was systematically shedding its own Lehman debt behind the
scenes in advance of the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, according to
a claim filed by the nationwide investor advocacy law firm Vernon
Healy.

Holders of Lehman notes have been left standing at the back of the
line with unsecured creditors in the Lehman Brothers Bankruptcy
despite the fact that UBS marketed the notes as safe and principal
protected, according to the claim. UBS sold an estimated $1
billion in Lehman principal protected notes to main street
investors who are now holding virtually worthless paper, according
to the claim.

Vernon Healy filed close to a half million in claims today on
behalf of two UBS clients who assert that they were fraudulently
sold Lehman structured products that UBS touted as safe and
"principal protected."  The law firm has filed close to $12
million in Lehman notes arbitration claims on behalf of investors
before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

Vernon Healy's investigation was featured in AARP magazine in an
article about the dangers of investing in so-called structured
products, which have been increasingly sold by brokerage firms to
retirees in recent years as safe investments.

UBS provided misleading and fraudulent marketing and training
material to its own sales force of financial advisors who were
encouraged to push sales of Lehman structured products to main
street investors, the claim states.  Behind the scenes, UBS was
propping up the financially faltering Lehman with loans and
charging Lehman high interest rates, a situation that demonstrated
Lehman's desperation and poor credit worthiness, the claims
assert.

"As a creditor of Lehman, UBS was in a unique position to assess
Lehman's increasing financial difficulties.  However, despite its
knowledge of Lehman's financial situation, UBS failed to warn its
financial advisors or its clients of the increasing risk posed by
Lehman structured products," a claim today filed by Vernon Healy
on behalf of an investor states.

Vernon Healy is seeking significant punitive damages on behalf of
investors in light of UBS' gross malfeasance, the claim states.
UBS made lucrative profits on its predatory lending strategy to a
desperate Lehman at a time when it was making enormous profits on
fees and commissions by deceptively selling mom-and-pop investors.
UBS told these investors that as a worst case scenario their
principal investment would be protected, the claims state.

The securities attorneys at Vernon Healy represent individuals and
businesses in disputes involving all manner of financial fraud and
negligence including related to structured products, non-traded
REITs, hedge funds, fund of funds, bonds, mutual funds, annuities,
tax shelters and other products.

LENNY DYKSTRA: Court Denies TRO Request Over Twitter Account
------------------------------------------------------------
Megan Leonhardt at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a California
judge refused Monday to issue a restraining order against a man
who ran Lenny Dykstra's Twitter account, saying the ex-baseball
player -- who is facing bankruptcy fraud charges -- didn't present
enough evidence to warrant the order for himself and his family.

"You allowed him [defendant Dan Herman] to manage your Twitter
account," Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carol Boas Goodson
said, advising Mr. Dykstra to "close it down or clarify any false
statements," according to Law360.

                        About Lenny Dykstra

Lenny Dykstra is a former Major League Baseball all-star player.
He was center fielder for the New York Mets and Philadelphia
Phillies.  He filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr.
C.D. Calif. Case No. 09-18409) on July 7, 2009, in Woodland Hills,
California.  The Law Office of M. Jonathan Hayes, in Northridge,
California, represents the Debtor.  The Debtor estimated up to
$50,000 in assets and $10 million to $50 million in debts in his
Chapter 11 petition.

A Chapter 11 trustee was appointed in September 2009, and the case
was converted to a liquidation in Chapter 7 on November 20, 2009.
The trustee -- Arturo M. Cisneros -- was investigating the
disposition of personal property both before and after the Chapter
11 filing.

In August 2010, Mr. Cisneros stepped down as Chapter 7 trustee
following issues with his failing to disclose the extent of his
business with J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., which happens to be largest
creditor in Mr. Dykstra's case.

Recent Events

The proposed $260 Million Senior Secured 1st Lien Term Loan B is
an incremental facility under LIN's credit agreement which was put
in place when it raised the new $125 million Term Loan A in
October 2011. The Term Loan B is pari passu with the existing Term
Loan A which was used primarily to refinance a portion of the 6.5%
sr subordinated notes due 2013. Net proceeds from the proposed
Term Loan B facility will fund the take out of the remaining 6.5%
sr subordinated notes. In addition, on November 7, 2011, the
company announced a $25 million common stock repurchase program.

RATINGS RATIONALE

LIN's B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) reflects the company's
leading market positions and good free cash flow generated by its
geographically diversified portfolio of middle market broadcast
television stations, moderately high leverage, and overhang from
LIN TV Corp.'s guarantee of the NBC JV debt. The company's
strategic focus on duopoly operations in a majority of its markets
leads to high in-market revenue share and good margins. Ratings
incorporate expectations for higher retransmission revenues in
2012 followed by increased expenses related to reverse
compensation paid to the networks. Exposure to cyclical
advertising revenue and the ongoing risk of audience diffusion
resulting from media fragmentation weigh on the ratings. As of
September 30, 2011, LIN's two-year average debt-to-EBITDA ratio
was 5.5x (including Moody's standard adjustments, 5.3x for the
trailing 12 months) and Moody's expects LIN will utilize the vast
majority of its free cash flow to further reduce debt balances,
leading to improved capacity to fund an acquisition or dissolution
of the NBC JV within leverage parameters consistent with its B2
CFR. Liquidity is good with minimum two-year average free cash
flow of approximately $60 million (or 9% of debt balances) over
the rating horizon and extended maturities.

As noted previously, the NBC JV is a significant overhang that
poses elevated risk to the company's credit profile given the
decline in its asset value (as of December 2010, the NBC JV was
valued at $254 million less than amount due under the note,
improved from $366 million less as of December 2009) and shortfall
in meeting interest payments on its $815.5 million loan from
General Electric Capital Corporation. On January 28, 2011, Comcast
acquired 51% of NBCUniversal, Inc. with GE owning the remaining
49%. Additionally, LIN TV Corp. and GE agreed to fund interest
coverage shortfalls with loans based on LIN's ownership interests
(LIN 20% / GE 80%). Ratings hinge on Moody's expectation that LIN
will utilize free cash flow to reduce debt and leverage to
increase its capacity to finance an acquisition or other
dissolution of the NBC JV, particularly if it occurs prior to the
2023 GECC loan maturity. Under most scenarios, an acquisition or
dissolution of the NBC JV would be leveraging to LIN. The
company's capacity to fund a transaction without exceeding
leverage metrics expected in the B2 CFR (as would be the case if a
transaction occurred in the near term) increases the longer it can
forestall such an event, and could be reached in 2013/2014
assuming free cash flow continues to be applied to reduce debt
balances.

The CFR is affirmed at B2; however, as anticipated, the issuance
of the proposed Term Loan B senior secured credit facility to
refinance remaining 6.5% senior subordinated notes, will eliminate
the cushion provided by junior debt and results in the downgrade
of the $200 million senior unsecured notes to Caa1, LGD5 -- 85%
reflecting their effective subordination to LIN's increased 1st
lien senior secured credit facilities. The rating is two notches
below the CFR, and reflects weak recovery prospects in a default
scenario.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectations that the
company will maintain good liquidity, the two-year average debt-
to-EBITDA ratios (includes political and non-political years) will
remain below 5.75x over the rating horizon, and the company will
have capacity to fund any debt service shortfalls of the NBC JV
over the next 12-24 months. Moody's believes LIN will utilize its
free cash flow to repay debt and further reduce leverage creating
flexibility to complete a transaction that would resolve the
overhang from the guarantee of the NBC JV in advance of the GECC
loan maturity in 2023.

An advertising downturn, cash distributions to shareholders,
acquisitions or purchase/dissolution of the NBC JV that results in
the two-year average debt-to-EBITDA ratios being sustained above
6.25x (including Moody's standard adjustments) could lead to a
downgrade. Deterioration in liquidity including diminished
capacity to cover debt service shortfalls at the NBC JV (that
increases near term risk of a purchase/dissolution of the JV) or
other cash requirements could also result in a downgrade. An
upgrade is not likely until there is a clear path to resolution of
the overhang related to the NBC JV.

LIN Television Corporation, headquartered in Providence, RI, owns
and operates or programs 32 television stations, including two
stations under local marketing agreements and four stations
pursuant to shared services agreements, in 17 mid-sized markets in
the United States. In addition, LIN TV Corp., the company's
parent, owns 20% of KXAS-TV in Dallas, Texas and KNSD-TV in San
Diego, California, through a joint venture with NBCUniversal
Media, LLC (NBC JV). HM Capital Partners LLC ("HMC") holds an
approximate 42% economic interest in LIN and approximately 70% of
voting control is held by HMC and Mr. Royal Carson III, a LIN
director and advisor for HMC. Through the 12 months ended
September 30, 2011, the company generated revenue of approximately
$423 million (excluding NBC JV revenue, which is accounted for
under the equity method).

The principal methodology used in rating LIN Television Corp was
the Global Broadcast Industry Methodology published in June 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.


LIN TV: S&P Affirms 'B' Corporate Rating After New Loan
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B' corporate
credit rating on Providence, R.I.-based TV broadcaster LIN TV
Corp. The rating outlook is stable.

"At the same time, we assigned guaranteed subsidiary LIN
Television Corp.'s proposed $260 million tranche B term loan
maturing December 2018 an issue-level rating of 'BB-' (two notches
higher than the 'B' corporate credit rating on LIN TV)," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Deborah Kinzer. The recovery
rating on this debt is '1', indicating our expectation of very
high (90% to 100%) recovery for lenders in the event of a payment
default.

"In addition, we revised our recovery rating on LIN Television
Corp.'s 8.375% senior notes to '6' from '2'. The '6' recovery
rating indicates our expectation of negligible (0 to 10%) recovery
for noteholders in the event of a payment default. As per our
notching criteria for a '6' recovery rating, we lowered our issue-
level rating on this debt to 'CCC+' (two notches lower than the
'B' corporate credit rating on the parent company) from 'B+'. The
revision of the recovery rating on the notes reflects their lower
recovery prospects after the higher-ranking credit facilities are
added to the company's capital structure," S&P said.

"The company plans to use proceeds from its new term loan B to
redeem the remainder of its 6.5% senior subordinated notes. We
will withdraw our 'CCC+' issue-level and '6' recovery rating on
the subordinated notes after the redemption is complete," S&P
said.

"The corporate credit rating affirmation reflects our view that
the proposed transaction is essentially leverage-neutral and will
slightly improve LIN's lease-adjusted EBITDA coverage of interest
by replacing higher-coupon debt with lower-cost bank borrowings.
Our rating and stable outlook on LIN reflect our expectation that
the company's fully adjusted debt to EBITDA (including leases,
pensions, and contingent joint-venture obligations) will rise
above 10x for full-year 2011 as the benefit of 2010 political
advertising revenue rolls off (although this ratio will remain
below the extremely high levels of 2009). We believe leverage will
then drop in mid 2012 as political ad revenue increases. We also
predicate our rating on no significant change in LIN and General
Electric Co.'s (GE's) support of the Station Venture Holdings LLC
joint venture through shortfall funding as long as is necessary.
The rating further reflects our view of LIN's business risk
profile as 'fair' (as our criteria define the term), based on its
portfolio of TV stations in midsize markets with an EBITDA margin
comparable to its peers'. In addition, we view the company's
financial risk profile as 'highly leveraged,' with fully adjusted
debt to EBITDA of 8.8x as of Sept. 30, 2011 (according to our
financial risk indicative ratios, we associate debt to EBITDA of
greater than 5x with a 'highly leveraged' financial risk
profile)," S&P said.

---------------------------------------------------------
Choi, Kim, Park, LLP, resigned as the independent registered
accounting firm of Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc., on Dec. 7,

scope, or accounting principles, except that each of CKP's reports
for the years ended Dec. 31, 2010, and 2009, expressly assumed the
Company would continue as a going concern and stated that the
Company's significant operating losses and working capital deficit
raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.

During the years ended Dec. 31, 2010, and 2009, and through
Dec. 7, 2011, there were no disagreements with CKP on any matter
of accounting principles or practices, financial statement
disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements,
if not resolved to the satisfaction of CKP, would have caused CKP
to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in its
report on the consolidated financial statements for such year.
During the years ended Dec. 31, 2010, and 2009, and through
Dec. 7, 2011, there were no reportable events.

Committee, approved the engagement of SingerLewak LLP to serve as
the Company's independent registered accounting firm.  SingerLewak
LLP was formally engaged by the Company on Dec. 8, 2011.

During the years ended Dec. 31, 2010, and 2009, and through
Dec. 8, 2011, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf has
consulted with SingerLewak LLP with respect to either (i) the
application of accounting principles to a specified transaction,
either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that
might be rendered on the Company's consolidated financial
statements, and neither written nor oral advice was provided to
the Company that SingerLewak LLP concluded was an important factor
considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any
accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any
matter that was either the subject of disagreement with CKP or a
reportable event.

On Dec. 2, 2011, the Company held its adjourned 2011 annual
meeting of stockholders.

At the annual meeting, holders of the Company's Common Stock
elected Abdi Mahamedi and Mark Hansen as Common Directors, holders
of the Company's Series A Preferred Stock elected Ricardo Salas
and Scott Gillis as Series A Directors and holders of the
Company's Common Stock and Series A Preferred Stock elected Thomas
Steipp as General Director, each to serve until the Company's 2012
annual meeting of stockholders or until their respective
successors are duly elected and qualified.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on October 5, 2011,
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Media General, Inc.'s (Media
General) Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and senior secured bond
rating to B3 from B2, and lowered the company's speculative-grade
liquidity rating to SGL-4 from SGL-3.  The rating actions reflect
the liquidity pressure from the approaching March 2013 credit
facility maturity and heightened risk of a covenant violation, as
well as the operating pressure from a weaker advertising market.
The rating outlook is negative.

The TCR also reported on Oct. 28, 2011, that Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit on Richmond, Va.-
headquartered Media General Inc. to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  "The
downgrade reflects our expectation that Media General could face
difficulties in maintaining covenant compliance in 2012," S&P
said.

MF GLOBAL: R.J. O'Brien CEO Corcoran Testifies
----------------------------------------------
The U.S. House Committee on Agriculture is convening a hearing on
the Examination of the MF Global Bankruptcy. Gerald F. Corcoran,
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of R.J. O'Brien & Associates
(RJO), offered testimony on behalf of the Commodity Markets
Council (CMC) and RJO.  He put forth ideas for consideration and
discussion on possible improvements to the futures industry's
financial safeguard system.

Mr. Corcoran emphasized in his testimony that trust in the system
has been "severely impaired" and that it is in the best interest
of the industry and its customers for quick, but thoughtful action
to restore that confidence.  He said: "...while the investigation
continues into the causes of the MF Global bankruptcy and the
whereabouts of segregated assets, I am certain, very certain of
this: we CANNOT let this event destroy the long-term trust and
confidence upon which market participants rely.  This is an
industry that is vitally important not only to the interests of
the agricultural community, but to the world."

Speaking on behalf of RJO and CMC, Mr. Corcoran offered ideas on
improving the industry's customer collateral management process by
ensuring the adequate maintenance of customer collateral levels.
He said: "While this point does not directly relate to the MF
Global situation, it is worth considering in the context of the
financial stability of FCMs.  Significant losses by a customer of
an FCM can also result in catastrophic losses to the FCM
itself....An idea we offer for deliberation is to require accounts
which exceed certain margin thresholds on an intra-day basis to
fund their account through direct wire transfer, thereby ensuring
intra-day margin calls are met."

He also suggested ways to improve the FCM's net capital treatment,
including evaluating the "double counting" of funds to satisfy
capital requirements by entities dually registered as FCMs and
broker-dealers.

In addition, RJO and CMC suggested a possible modification that
would place a portion of an FCM's funds in a customer-segregated
funds account designated for capital protection.  Said Corcoran:
"By requiring an FCM to place its capital in a customer-segregated
funds account, funds will then also be afforded the protections
that Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Rule 1.25, as
amended, would provide."

Mr. Corcoran also urged regulators to look at enhancing monitoring
and reporting requirements with respect to FCM customer
segregation practices.  FCMs are already required to prepare
customer segregation reports on a daily basis but do not share
them with regulators that often.  He suggested that regulatory
agencies can require the submission of these daily reports to the
CFTC, National Futures Association or other Designated Self-
Regulatory Organization (DSRO).

Mr. Corcoran put forth a proposal, speaking solely on behalf of
RJO, in which all futures commission merchants (FCMs) would adopt
the same "agency" only model as RJO, which does not engage in
proprietary trading.  Mr. Corcoran said: "Although proprietary
trading by FCMs may contribute to the liquidity of the futures
markets, it should not be at the expense of customer protection.
Therefore, we at RJO suggest that those FCMs who want to conduct
proprietary trading utilize other FCMs or create a separately
capitalized special purpose FCM for this activity.  Doing so will
require the same oversight afforded to customer accounts,
including proper margining at all times.  Simply put, an FCM that
is restricted from trading for its own account would not place its
customers at risk due to losses from proprietary trading."

Describing the impact of MF Global's bankruptcy filing and default
on RJO, Corcoran said that the firm worked closely with CME Group
and other domestic exchanges to provide a home for a substantial
number of MF Global accounts and brokers: "In a matter of a few
days, we assumed a bulk transfer of 20,000 accounts without
incident, and our shareholders provided an infusion of
approximately $50 million of capital to ensure that we would be
sufficiently capitalized for this unexpected event.  At the same
time, we worked very hard to ensure that our long-standing clients
continued to receive the outstanding service to which they are
accustomed.  Our management and staff worked literally around the
clock for 25 days straight in a massive effort that involved
coordination of systems, processes and people, and sometimes
working with incomplete data and rapidly changing circumstances.
We fully recognized that the clients of MF Global had just
experienced a traumatic event, and we did everything we could to
provide vehicles for addressing their questions and providing
reassurances as soon as we had answers."

Headquartered in Chicago, RJO is the nation's oldest and largest
independent futures brokerage and clearing firm.  RJO is a member
of Washington-based CMC, a trade association which brings together
commodity exchanges with their industry counterparts.

MF GLOBAL: CME Group's Duffy Appears Before House Committee
-----------------------------------------------------------
CME Group disclosed that Executive Chairman Terry Duffy appeared
before the U.S. House Committee on Agriculture Dec. 8 to discuss
the MF Global bankruptcy.

"MF Global put market users in a tragic position," said Duffy. "In
the days leading up to MF Global's bankruptcy, daily reviews of
the company's segregation reports showed the firm remained in full
compliance with segregation requirements.  Any transfers of
customer funds, effectuated by MF Global, constitute very serious
violations of our rules and of CFTC regulations."

"With respect to the unprecedented loss of customer segregated
funds caused by MF Global, CME Group's efforts have been to assist
customers and minimize market disruptions," Duffy added.  "Our
efforts have been directed toward speeding customer access to
their trading accounts, transferring their positions and providing
the Trustee with a $550 million guarantee from CME Group, to
enable him to quickly release customer funds that were securely
held at CME Clearing.  Moving forward, we intend to work with the
Congress, regulators and industry leaders to strengthen customer
safeguards at the firm level."

MIDWEST GAMING: S&P Puts 'B' Corp. Rating on Watch Positive
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B' corporate credit
rating on Des Plaines, Ill.-based Midwest Gaming Borrower LLC, as
well as all related issue-level ratings, on CreditWatch with
positive implications.

"The CreditWatch listing reflects the strong opening of the Rivers
casino in July 2011, followed by solid performance in the
subsequent months; since its opening, Rivers' slot machine revenue
metrics and average daily win per table have widely surpassed
those of its closest competitors," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Jennifer Pepper. "While the track record remains short,
in our view, this has allayed the risk associated with the
property's ability to generate sufficient cash flow to cover fixed
charges. In the event the property can sustain its initial win-
per-unit measures, we expect Midwest will generate sufficient free
cash flow to allow for meaningful repayment of the term loan,
given an excess cash flow sweep provision. Under this scenario,
credit metrics would be consistent with a higher rating, as
interest coverage would likely be well above 2x and leverage
around 3x after a full year of operations," S&P said.

"In resolving the CreditWatch listing, we will update our
performance expectations for 2012 and beyond based on the
property's performance in its initial months and determine whether
a higher rating is warranted. We believe a potential upgrade would
likely be limited to one notch, given the company's business risk
profile characterized by lack of diversity as an operator of a
single casino property as well as the potential for increased
competition in the Chicagoland market, given the ongoing dialogue
around an expansion of gaming in Illinois," S&P said.

Oshkosh Corporation, that he and his affiliates believe there may
be significant synergies between Navistar and Oshkosh and that
shareholders of both companies could benefit from these synergies.
Icahn said he and his affiliates would be supportive of a merger.

NEVADA CANCER: Judge Expedites Plan to Sell Asset in January
------------------------------------------------------------
Steve Green at Vegas Inc. reports that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Mike
Nakagawa in Las Vegas has set hearings for Jan. 11 and 12, 2012,
on Nevada Cancer Institute's plan to be sold to the University of
California, San Diego Health System.

According to the report, Judge Nakagawa also approved generally
routine "first day" motions allowing the institute to pay its 150
employees, maintain existing bank accounts and make arrangements
with utilities for uninterrupted service.

The report relates that one issue that wasn't routine in the
bankruptcy was whether Judge Nakagawa should appoint a health care
ombudsman to ensure the interests of patients aren't jeopardized
by the institute's financial problems.

The report adds that Judge Nakagawa's rulings on Dec. 6, 2011, set
in place a procedure in which key Cancer Institute assets are to
be sold to the UC San Diego system for $18 million and the Cancer
Institute has agreed to raise $20.8 million over five years to
support the continued philanthropic mission of the center under UC
San Diego's ownership.

Nevada-based Nevada Cancer Institute was co-founded by husband and
wife Jim and Heather Murren.  Jim Murren is chief executive of MGM
Resorts International.


NEW LIFE: Meeting to Form Creditors' Panel on Dec. 15
-----------------------------------------------------
Roberta DeAngelis, United States Trustee for Region 3, will hold
an organizational meeting on Dec. 15, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. in the
bankruptcy case of New Life Adult Medical Day Care Center, Inc.
aka New Life Adult Medical Day Care Corp.  The meeting will be
held at:

         United States Trustee's Office
         One Newark Center
         1085 Raymond Blvd.
         21st Floor, Room 2106
         Newark, NJ 07102

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' cases.

The organizational meeting is not the meeting of creditors
pursuant to Section 341 of the Bankruptcy Code.  A representative
of the Debtor, however, may attend the Organizational Meeting, and
provide background information regarding the bankruptcy cases.

To increase participation in the Chapter 11 proceeding, Section
1102 of the Bankruptcy Code requires that the United States
Trustee appoint a committee of unsecured creditors as soon as
practicable.  The Committee ordinarily consists of the persons,
willing to serve, that hold the seven largest unsecured claims
against the debtor of the kinds represented on the committee.
Section 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that the Committee
may consult with the debtor, investigate the debtor and its
business operations and participate in the formulation of a plan
of reorganization.  The Committee may also perform other services
as are in the interests of the unsecured creditors whom it
represents.

New Life Adult Medical Day Care Center, Inc. filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. D. N.J. {d} Case No. 11-43510) on Nov. 21, 2011
in Newmark, New Jersey, Adam D. Wolper, Esq., Amanda M. Graham,
Esq., Richard D. Trenk, Esq., at West Orange, New Jersey, serves
as counsel to the Debtor.  The Debtor estimated up to $1,000,000
in assets and up to $10,000,000 in liabilities.

The petition was signed by Robert DeMane, chairman of board of
directors.


NEWPAGE CORP: Court Asked to Reconsider Denial of Panel Hirings
---------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that NewPage's official committee of
unsecured creditors filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court a motion
for reconsideration of the order denying the committee's retention
of Moelis & Company as investment banker and Alvarez & Marsal
North America as financial advisor.

The committee asserts, "The Court should reconsider the Orders
pursuant to Bankruptcy Rules 9023 and 9024 for two reasons. First,
the Orders, and in particular the Court's conclusion that only
approval of the Completion Fees at the end of the case is
appropriate, constitute clear legal error. Second, evidence not
available at the November 9 Hearing has now become available --
specifically, the Committee is now able to present testimony that
(a) Moelis will not provide investment banking services to the
Committee, or expert testimony on behalf of the Committee, if (i)
Moelis's Completion Fee is not approved at this initial stage and
(ii) any of Moelis's fees are subject to section 330 review by any
party other than the Office of the United States Trustee at the
end of the case, and (b) the Committee will be hindered in the
performance of its fiduciary duties to unsecured creditors by the
loss of its professionals of choice."

The Court scheduled a Dec. 13, 2011, hearing on the matter.

NewPage Corp. objected to the committee's retention saying
unsecured creditors are "hopelessly out of the money" with any
prospect for recovery "beyond remote."

                      About NewPage Corp.

counsel and Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP to act as its
Delaware and conflicts counsel.

NewPage prevailed over most objections from the official
creditors' committee and won agreement from the bankruptcy judge
on final approval of $600 million in secured financing.

$350 million first-out revolving debtor-in-possession credit
facility and a B2 rating to the $250 million second-out debtor-in-
possession term loan for NewPage.

relationships built over my career to generate results and further
strengthen Nexstar's position as a leading provider of effective
advertising solutions.  I look forward to working with the sales
team to develop new strategies while building on our already
impressive record of client service excellence."

------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings withdraws the long-term rating on the series 2004A&B
revenue bonds issued by the Massachusetts Health and Educational
Facilities Authority on behalf of Northern Berkshire Health
Systems.

The rating withdrawal is based on the NBHS' filing for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection on June 13, 2011.  The 'D' rating indicates
that the borrower has initiated such proceedings.

NORTHAMPTON GENERATING: Defaults on $153 Million Senior Bonds
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded the rating on Northampton Generating
Company, L.P.'s (Northampton) due 2019 to 'D' from 'C'.  The $153
million senior tax-exempt series A resource recovery revenue bonds
were issued by the Pennsylvania Economic Development Financing
Authority in 1994 with the proceeds loaned to Northampton.

Northampton filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Dec. 5, 2011, in
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Western District of North
Carolina (Charlotte), case number 11-33095.  In Fitch's Rating
Action Commentary published on Sept. 27, 2011, Fitch expected that
a payment default was likely within the following six months based
on Northampton's insufficient financial performance and the near-
depletion of the debt service reserve.

Northampton consists of a 112 megawatt (net) coal-fired qualifying
facility in Northampton County, PA, that supplies energy to
Metropolitan Edison Co. (Issuer Default Rating 'BBB' by Fitch)

NORTHWEST PARTNERS: Wants to Use Berkadia Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------
Northwest Partners will appear before the Bankruptcy Court Dec. 19
at 10:30 a.m., to seek permission to use revenues from its
apartment complex to fund operations while in Chapter 11.

The Debtor constructed the Property during 1997.  The project was
completed in 1998.  The project was financed by Nevada Housing
Division Bonds, guaranteed by the Federal National Mortgage
Association.  Berkadia Commercial Mortgage LLC is the loan
servicer.  The current outstanding balance of the mortgage is
$13,100,000.

Pending plan confirmation, the Debtor proposes to make adequate
protection payments to Berkadia equal to the monthly net income
derived from the property after payment of ongoing operating and
maintenance expenses.

The Debtor believes that Berkadia has sufficient collateral to
adequately protect its interest.  To further protect Berkadia, the
Debtor proposes it will provide it with a replacement lien against
the Debtor's post-petition rents, with the replacement lien to
have the same extent, validity and priority as pre-petition liens
held by Berkadia.

Northwest Partners owns the 268-unit Austin Crest Apartment in
Northwest Reno, Nevada.  It filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
(Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-53528) on Nov. 17, 2011.  Judge Bruce
T. Beesley oversees the case.  The Law Offices of Alan R. Smith --
mail@asmithlaw.com -- serves as the Debtor's counsel.
The Debtor scheduled $13,513,361 in assets and $14,135,158 in
liabilities.  The petition was signed by Robert F. Nielsen,
president of IDN I, the Debtor's general partner.


NORTHWEST PARTNERS: Taps Alan Smith Law Firm as Counsel
-------------------------------------------------------
Northwest Partners seeks Bankruptcy Court authority to employ the
Law Offices of Alan R. Smith -- mail@asmithlaw.com -- as its
attorneys.  Northwest Partners said it is not sufficiently
familiar with the rights and duties of a debtor-in-possession as
to be able to plan and conduct proceedings without the aid of
competent counsel.

The firm will be paid at these hourly rates:

          Alan R. Smith, Esq.             $500
          Contract Attorney               $350
          Peggy L. Turk                   $250
          Other Paraprofessionals          $75 - $115

The Contract Attorney normally used by the Debtor's counsel is
John J. Gezelin.

On Oct. 14, Shelter Properties Inc. paid the firm $60,000 as
advance retainer for the Debtor.

To the best of the Debtor's knowledge, the firm's members have no
connection with the Debtor, any of its creditors, any other party
in interest, their attorneys and accountants, the United States
Trustee, or any person employed in the Office of the United States
Trustee.

Northwest Partners owns the 268-unit Austin Crest Apartment in
Northwest Reno, Nevada.  It filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
(Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-53528) on Nov. 17, 2011.  Judge Bruce
T. Beesley oversees the case.  The Debtor scheduled $13,513,361 in

Robert F. Nielsen, president of IDN I, the Debtor's general
partner.

T. Beesley oversees the case.  The Law Offices of Alan R. Smith --
mail@asmithlaw.com -- serves as the Debtor's counsel.
The Debtor scheduled $13,513,361 in assets and $14,135,158 in
liabilities.  The petition was signed by Robert F. Nielsen,
president of IDN I, the Debtor's general partner.


OPPENHEIMER PARTNERS: To File Full-Payment Plan, Seeks Cash Use
---------------------------------------------------------------
Oppenheimer Partners Properties LLP anticipates filing a plan of
reorganization that will pay creditors the full amount of their
allowed claims.  The Debtor made this declaration in its request
to use cash collateral to finance operations while in bankruptcy.
Specifically, the Debtor seeks to use revenues from its
residential apartment complex.  The Debtor said the revenues may
constitute cash collateral securing a promissory note to MidFirst
Bank.

Oppenheimer Partners Properties LLP owns and operates a 184-unit
residential apartment complex in Phoenix, Arizona.  Oppenheimer
purchased the property in June 2007 for $12 million through a
combination of cash and a construction loan totaling $12.4
million.

The Debtor said the property has always created cash flow
sufficient to cover operations and service the debt.  The Debtor's
principals have managed the property since the purchase.

The Debtor said a second modification agreement to the MidFirst
note extended the maturity of the note to June 1, 2011, and
included a borrower option for a one-year extension.  The Debtor
said it exercised that option, making the current maturity date
June 1, 2012.  The Debtor said it is current on its loan payment
to MidFirst.  The bank, however, has declared the loan in default
due to alleged violations of the Second Loan Modification
Agreement.

The Debtor does not have an appraisal but believes the property
could be worth the amount of the debt.

Oppenheimer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case
No. 11-33139) on Dec. 2, 2011.  Judge Sarah Sharer Curley presides
over the case.  Gordon Silver's Robert C. Warnicke, Esq. --
phxbknotices@gordonsilver.com -- serves as the Debtor's counsel.
In its petition, the Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million
in assets and debts.  The petition was signed by Eric Hamburger,
managing partner.

ORANGE COUNTY: S&P Lowers Rating on Housing Revenue Bonds to 'B+'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term rating on
Orange County Housing Finance Authority, Fla.'s (Housing and
Neighborhood Development Services Inc. (HANDS)) multifamily
housing revenue bonds (Green Gables Apartments Project) series
1998C to 'B+' from 'BB-'. The outlook is negative.

The downgrade reflects S&P's view of these weaknesses of the
project:

    Sharp declining trend in debt service coverage levels to 0.67
    maximum annual debt service (MADS), based on audited financial
    statements for the fiscal year ended 2010;

    Receipt of advances from surplus funds held by HANDS to
    fulfill its financial obligations in fiscal 2010;

    High loan-to-value ratio; and

    Decrease in rental revenues by almost 6% and increase in
    expenses by 16%, leading to deterioration of the expense
    ratio.

However, the weaknesses are partially offset, in S&P's view, by
these strengths of the project:

    Debt service reserve fund funded at 12 months' MADS;
    Improved occupancy rates at the project; and
    Strong and experienced ownership and management by HANDS.

"The negative outlook reflects our view of the potential that
further deterioration in operating performance can occur" said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Renee J. Berson.

Green Gables Apartments is a 95-unit affordable housing project
located in Orlando, Fla. The property was built in 1986 and was
renovated in 1999. The property consists of 21 efficiency, 64 one-
bedroom, and 10 three-bedroom/two-bath apartments.


OVERSEAS SHIPHOLDING: Moody's Lowers CFR to B3; Outlook Negative
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service lowered its ratings of Overseas
Shipholding Group, Inc.; Corporate Family, Probability of Default,
each to B3 from B1, senior unsecured to Caa1 from B2 and
Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-3 from SGL-2. The
outlook is negative.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The lowering of the ratings reflects the company's sustained weak
credit metrics, which have remained at levels no longer supportive
of the B1 Corporate Family rating, because of continuing weak
fundamentals in the global tanker sector. "Moody's believes that
average annual tanker freight rates are not likely to meaningfully
strengthen above their 2011 levels in 2012 because it expects
growth in the world fleet to continue to outpace growth of ton-
mile demand, particularly for crude oil carriers," said Moody's
Senior Credit Officer, Jonathan Root. Moody's anticipates that
2012 will be another year of negative free cash flow generation
for the company, even though capital expenditures will be reduced
by about $180 million. These factors are likely to prevent the
company from strengthening its liquidity in the near term.
Additionally, the difficult market conditions will likely sustain
pressure on the values of internationally-flagged tankers at a
time when the company may need to monetize one or more vessels to
reduce utilization of its revolving credit facility prior to the
new, smaller revolver becoming effective in February 2013. The
planned refinancing of certain U.S.-flagged Jones Act vessels with
long-term financing under the U.S. Maritime Administration's Title
XI, government guaranteed loan program will help address a portion
of the anticipated funding needed.

The negative outlook considers that the sector's weak fundamentals
could challenge OSG to maintain compliance in the near term with
minimum loan-to-value covenants in one or more of its secured
vessel financings. This risk could be mitigated by the potential
for the company to post additional collateral or reduce the debt
to restore compliance. Nonetheless, Moody's does believe that OSG
will maintain compliance with the covenants of its unsecured
revolving credit facility. Execution risk and market risk could
also affect the pace, scope and pricing of the company's Title XI
financings and or other vessel monetization efforts, each of which
will be important for stabilizing the liquidity profile. Event
risk related to fleet growth also remains a risk to the credit
profile as the weak industry fundamentals could cause OSG to
pursue opportunistic vessel purchases, as successful shipping
companies typically do during troughs of the cycle.

"The B3 rating balances OSG's position as a market leader in the
majority of its trades and the proactive approach to addressing
the refinancing risk of the revolving credit against very weak
credit metrics and potential increasing pressure on liquidity
should the current weak sector fundamentals extend into 2013,"
said Root. "Improvements in fundamentals in the Jones Act trades
and the large number of unencumbered vessels help to mitigate some
of the ratings pressure from the large operating losses and
negative free cash flow generation reported in recent periods and
increased reliance on external sources of financing," continued
Root. Trading the majority of the international tankers in pools
helps OSG's vessels earn relatively higher freight rates
throughout the shipping cycle because pool trading typically
increases vessel utilization. Demands on liquidity could be higher
without this trading strategy.

The outlook could be stabilized once OSG strengthens its
liquidity, such as by assuring in the aggregate at least $250
million of cash and availability after the New Revolver becomes
effective and if improved vessel values reduce the prospect of
non-compliance with financial covenants of its secured financing
agreements. Sustained improvements in credit metrics, such as Debt
to EBITDA of less than 7.0 times, Funds from Operations + Interest
to Interest of at least 2.5 times and positive free cash flow
generation that is applied to debt reduction could lead to a
ratings upgrade. Debt-funded growth of the fleet or returns to
shareholders ahead of a meaningful reduction in Debt to EBITDA
could lead to a ratings downgrade as could the inability to
maintain at least $100 million of cash and revolver availability.
The inability to demonstrate a positive inflection in credit
metrics by the end of 2012 could also pressure the ratings.

Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc., headquartered in New York City,
NY, is one of the largest publicly traded tanker companies in the
world, engaged primarily in the ocean transportation of crude oil
and petroleum products.

The principal methodology used in rating OSG was the Global
Shipping Industry Methodology published in December 2009. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-
Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA
published in June 2009.

PENINSULA HOSPITAL: Board Member Offers $5MM Replacement Loan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Barbara Benson at Crain's New York Business reports that board
member Martin Oliner, an attorney and the mayor of Lawrence, Long
Island, New York, offered on Dec. 7, 2011, to lend $5 million to
Peninsula Hospital Center following serious conflict-of-interest
allegations raised by the United States trustee against an
affiliate of Revival Home Health Care, which had stepped in to
rescue the hospital in September 2011.

The report notes that Peninsula Hospital is running low on cash
and faces its next payroll due date on Dec. 16, 2011.

According to the report, the board member's loan was one of four
proposals that Peninsula's board would consider and vote Dec. 9,
2011.  Among the other offers are proposals from health care
lender MidCap Financial, and an additional financing offer from
the Revival affiliate.  The four options have various lending
terms, but all would give Peninsula the cash infusion it needs.

The report says Peninsula found itself in a cash crunch after
weeks of being unable to win approval from creditors and the court
for a proposed debtor-in-possession, or DIP, package from the
Revival affiliate.  The court-appointed trustee overseeing the
bankruptcy maintains that Peninsula's board and management are not
in control of the hospital, and that Revival holds the reins.  The
trustee also claims that the Revival DIP package favors Revival
over other creditors. Peninsula denies those allegations.

The report relates that the trustee raised the stakes by asking
the court to name a Chapter 11 trustee to take control of the
hospital, or short of that, to name an examiner to investigate the
alleged conflicts.

The report adds that Bankruptcy Judge Elizabeth Strong refused to
let the U.S. trustee's allegations linger.  With the hospital's
cash running low, she denied Peninsula's request to wait a week to
hold a hearing on appointing a Chapter 11 trustee.  So,
Peninsula's board voted to accept an examiner.

PETTERS COMPANY: Trustee Taps Boies Schiller as Special Counsel
--------------------------------------------------------------
Douglas A. Kelley, the Chapter 11 Trustee for the bankruptcy
estates of Petters Company, Inc., et al., sought and obtained
permission the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota
for permission to employ Boies, Schiller & Flexner, LLP, as his
special counsel.

BSF will advise and represent the Trustee with respect to
adversary proceeding no. 10-04443 entitled, Douglas A. Kelley,
Trustee for Petters Company, Inc., and Petters Group Worldwide,
LLC, John R. Stoebner, Trustee for Polaroid Corporation, et al.,

Plaintiffs, vs. JPMorgan Chase & Co., JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.,
One Equity Partners LLC, Jacques A. Nasser, Lee M. Gardner,
Charles F. Auster, James W. Koven, Rick A. Lazio, J. Michael
Pocock, William L. Flaherty and Ira H. Parker, defendants.

The Trustee does not believe that the retention of BSF will be
duplicative of services being provided by other attorneys or
firms.  BSF will be working with and assisting the law firm of
Fruth, Jamison & Elsass, PLLC, in conjunction with the JPMorgan
Litigation.

To the best of Trustee's knowledge, neither BSF nor any of its
partners or employees hold or represent any material interest
adverse to the Trustee, the Debtors, the United States Trustee,
employees of the United States Trustee, or their respective
attorneys.

The following are or may be creditors of the Debtors who have been
identified as current clients of BSF on matters entirely unrelated
to these Debtors and the JPMorgan litigation: Amex, Comcast
and Qwest.

BSF anticipates being engaged by multiple parties in the JPMorgan
Litigation against certain parties on behalf of the following
entities as co-plaintiffs:

a. BSF anticipates being retained by John R. Stoebner, Chapter 7
Trustee of affiliated debtors in jointly administered bankruptcy
cases titled In re Polaroid Corporation, et al., currently pending
before the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Minnesota, Case No. 08-46617; and

b. BSF anticipates being retained by Randall L. Seaver, the

Minnesota, Case No. 09-43847.
The Trustee believes these representations do not constitute
conflicts, but may be "connections" within the meaning of Rule

arising out of the same.

The current hourly rates of attorneys and legal staff currently
expected to provide services to the Trustee are:

Pinnacle Airlines Corp. has engaged the services of Seabury Group
LLC's consulting division, Barclays Capital, and the law firm of
Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP to assist with these efforts.

"Pinnacle Airlines Corp. is facing a convergence of events that,
if left unaddressed, will make 2012 an extremely challenging
year," said Sean Menke, the company's President and Chief
Executive Officer.  "We have a great deal of hard work ahead of
us, but these efforts are necessary to ensure we can operate as a
profitable business for our shareholders, mainline flying

PRECISION PARTS: Plan of Liquidation Declared Effective
-------------------------------------------------------
PPI Holdings, Inc., et al., notified the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware that the effective date of the Plan of
Liquidation proposed by the Debtors and the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors occurred on Nov. 15, 2011.

The Court confirmed the Debtors' Plan on Oct. 28.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 5, 2011, the
Plan provides for the transfer of the assets and debts of the
Debtors to the Liquidating Trust which will be administered by the
Liquidating Trustee, who will, among other things, distribute the
proceeds from the assets to creditors.

The Plan designates six Classes of Claims and one Class of
Interests.  Priority Unsecured Claims in Class 1 and Other Secured
Claims in Class 2 are Unimpaired under the Plan and are deemed to
accept the Plan.

Convenience Claims in Class 3, General Unsecured Claims in
Class 4, and Lender Deficiency Claims in Class 5 are Impaired and
entitled to vote.

Intercompany Claims in Class 6 and Interests in Class 7 are
Impaired and deemed to reject the Plan.

Under the Plan, Class 1 Priority Unsecured Claims will be paid in
full on the Effective Date.  Class 2 Other Secured Claims will, at
the option of the Liquidating Trustee, receive (i) 100% of their
Claims in Cash in full on the Effective Date, or (ii) the
collateral securing their Claims.

Class 3 Convenience Claims will receive, in full satisfaction of
their Claims, Cash in amount equal to 3.5% of their Claims,
without Postpetition Interest.

Each holder of a Class 4 General Unsecured Claim will receive its
pro rata share of $150,000, which will be funded into the General
Unsecured Reserve Account on the Effective Date.  The Proponents
estimate that the total amount of Class 4 General Unsecured Claims
is approximately $103,140,000.  Accordingly, the Proponents
estimate that Holders of Allowed General Unsecured Claims will
receive a minimum Pro Rata distribution equal to 0.15% of their
Allowed Claims.

The bulk of anticipated distribution to Class 4 will come from
recoveries in Avoidance Actions and other litigation.

Class 5 Lender Deficiency Claims will receive Cash in an amount
equal to the Holder's Pro Rata share of the remaining funds
in the Liquidating Trust after Claims in Class 1 through
Class 4 and expenses of the Liquidating Trust have been
paid in full.

Class 6 Intercompany Claims and Class 6 Interests will not receive
any distributions.  These Claims will be extinguished.

QUADRA FNX: Moody's Changes Outlook on Ratings to Developing
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed the outlook on the ratings of
Quadra FNX Mining Ltd. (Quadra) to developing following Quadra's
announcement that it has entered into a definitive agreement with
KGHM Polska Miedz S.A. (KGHM), under which KGHM has agreed to
acquire all of Quadra's issued and outstanding common shares and
warrants.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The developing outlook incorporates uncertainties surrounding
final terms of the acquisition, creditworthiness of the resultant
entity, and the potential for competing bids. If Quadra's debt is
redeemed following the acquisition, Moody's will withdraw its
ratings.

If the arrangement is consummated as contemplated, Quadra's
shareholders will receive C$15.00 per common share, representing a
premium of approximately 41.3%, and warrant holders will receive
C$5.76 for each 2007 warrant and C$1.68 for each 2009 warrant.
KGHM intends to finance the total cost of acquisition of C$3
billion (excluding assumed debt) using cash on hand. While Quadra
has advised its shareholders to vote in favor of the KGHM, the
ultimate completion of the arrangement will be subject to
shareholder and warrant holder approval, relevant regulatory
approvals and other customary conditions.

Pursuant to change of control provisions governing Quadra's
existing $500 million 7.75% senior notes, the acquiring entity
will be required to make an offer to redeem all of the outstanding
notes at the price equal to 101% of principal, plus any accrued
and unpaid interest.

Quadra's B1 corporate family rating reflects its limited diversity
and modest size, as well as the relatively short reserve life of
the existing mines. In addition the rating considers the
dependence on Robinson mine for a significant portion of its
copper production, high cost production profile at a number of the
company's mines, and the geologic complexity and mineral variation
at the Robinson mine, the key revenue and earnings contributor.
However, the rating acknowledges the company's modest leverage pro
forma for the debt issue, and substantive cash position, which
will support its substantive capital investments over the next few
years, particularly the development of the Sierra Gorda copper
project in Chile in a joint venture with Sumitomo, as the company
looks to achieve its strategic growth objectives. This position
will accommodate possible negative free cash flow generation over
the next 12 to 15 months. Notwithstanding the reasonable leverage
position and solid liquidity, the operating risks, short lived
production profile at currently operating mines, and higher cost
position are key rating drivers.

The principal methodology used in rating Quadra was the Global
Mining Industry Methodology published in May 2009. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-
Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA
published in June 2009.


QUADRA FNX: S&P Puts B+ Corp. Credit Rating on Watch Developing
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings on
Vancouver-based Quadra FNX Mining Ltd., including its 'B+' long-
term corporate credit rating on the company, on CreditWatch with
developing implications. CreditWatch with developing implications
means that we could raise, lower, or affirm the ratings.

"The CreditWatch follows Quadra FNX's agreement to be acquired by
KGHM Polska Miedz S.A. in a C$3 billion all-cash transaction,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Donald Marleau. "To resolve
the CreditWatch, we will evaluate potential changes in the
combined entity's business risk profile, seek clarification on its
financial policies, and assess any effects on the rated notes,"
Mr. Marleau added.

"We believe that the acquisition could strengthen Quadra FNX's
credit profile by enhancing its competitive position without an
offsetting increase in financial risk. We understand that KGHM has
minimal debt, and is planning to fund the acquisition with cash on
hand. We expect that this transaction could expand the combined
entity's geographic and mine diversification and extend its
aggregate reserve life. On the other hand, we could lower the
ratings if we expect debt to increase along with the acquisition,"
S&P said.

The transaction is subject to a Quadra FNX shareholder vote and
regulatory approvals in Canada and, to some extent, in Poland.
Pursuant to a change-of-control clause in the rated US$500 million
secured notes, management could redeem the debt upon completion of
the transaction, currently targeted for first-quarter 2012.

"We will resolve the CreditWatch when the proposed transaction has
cleared regulatory and shareholder hurdles in a manner that
ensures adequate visibility on completion. Should the transaction
occur as proposed, we expect that we would maintain our ratings on
Quadra FNX. On the other hand, the ratings could potentially move
up one notch, but only after we confirm that the combined entity's
resulting operating diversity and cost position support ambitious
medium-term capital expenditures. We believe that a lower rating
is less likely based on the current transaction proposal, because
it appears that the transaction would improve Quadra FNX's
competitive position without increasing debt," S&P said.


QUANTUM FUEL: Incurs $8.4 Million Net Loss in Oct. 31 Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc., reported a net
loss attributable to stockholders of $8.40 million on $13.02
million of total revenue for the three months ended Oct. 31, 2011,
compared with a net loss attributable to stockholders of $1.45
million on $3.88 million of total revenue for the same period
during the prior year.

The Company reported a net loss attributable to stockholders of
$11.03 million on $20.27 million of total revenue for the year
ended Apri1 30, 2011, compared with a net loss attributable to
stockholders of $46.29 million on $9.60 million of total revenue
during the prior year.

The Company reported a net loss attributable to stockholders of
$16.26 million on $19.77 million of total revenue for the six
months ended Oct. 31, 2011, compared with a net loss attributable
to stockholders of $3.06 million on $7.44 million of total revenue
for the same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at July 31, 2011, showed
$74.15 million in total assets, $31.62 million in total
liabilities, and $42.53 million total stockholders' equity.

Ernst & Young LLP, in Orange County, California, noted that
Quantum Fuel's recurring losses and negative cash flows combined
with the Company's existing sources of liquidity and other
conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

Alan P. Niedzwiecki, President and CEO, stated, "We are excited
about the continued growth in our electric drive and fuel systems
revenue base and expanding customer programs.  Our product
shipments to Fisker Automotive and increasing CNG tank sales are
driving the revenue growth and we remain enthusiastic about the
expected positive impact this will continue to have on our
operations."  Mr. Niedzwiecki continued, "The renewable energy
side of our business has been negatively impacted by uncertainty
around feed-in-tariff programs and difficulty in obtaining project
financing.  We intend to move forward with developing a limited
number of renewable energy projects with strategic partnerships,
subject to sufficient equity or debt project financing required to
fund such development."

                        About Quantum Fuel

Based in Irvine, California, Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies
Worldwide, Inc., is a fully integrated alternative energy company
and considers itself a leader in the development and production of
advanced clean propulsion systems and renewable energy generation
systems and services.

Quantum Fuel and its senior lender, WB QT, LLC, entered into a
Ninth Amendment to Credit Agreement and a Forbearance Agreement on
Jan. 3, 2011.  The Senior Lender agreed to provide the Company
with a $5.0 million non-revolving line of credit, which may be
drawn upon at any time prior to April 30, 2011.  Advances under
the New Line of Credit do not bear interest -- unless an event of
default occurs, in which case the interest rate would be 10% per
annum -- and mature on April 30, 2011.  The Senior Lender also
agreed to forbear from accelerating the maturity date for any
portion of the Senior Debt Amount and from exercising any of its
rights and remedies with respect to the Senior Debt Amount until
April 30, 2011.

                        Possible Bankruptcy

The Company anticipates that it will need to raise a significant
amount of debt or equity capital in the near future in order to
repay certain obligations owed to the Company's senior secured
lender when they mature.  As of June 15, 2011, the total amount
owing to the Company's senior secured lender was approximately
$15.5 million, which includes approximately $12.5 million of
principal and interest due under three convertible promissory
notes that are scheduled to mature on Aug. 31, 2011, and a $3.0
million term note that is potentially payable in cash upon demand
beginning on Aug. 1, 2011, if the Company's stock is below $10.00
at the time demand for payment is made.  If the Company is unable
to raise sufficient capital to repay these obligations at maturity
and the Company is otherwise unable to extend the maturity dates
or refinance these obligations, the Company would be in default.
The Company said it cannot provide any assurances that it will be
able to raise the necessary amount of capital to repay these
obligations or that it will be able to extend the maturity dates
or otherwise refinance these obligations.  Upon a default, the
Company's senior secured lender would have the right to exercise
its rights and remedies to collect, which would include
foreclosing on the Company's assets.  Accordingly, a default would
have a material adverse effect on the Company's business and, if
the Company's senior secured lender exercises its rights and
remedies, the Company would likely be forced to seek bankruptcy
protection.

Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that Round Table Pizza Inc. has
won permission to exit bankruptcy under a plan that requires the

approval.

                      About Round Table

ROUNDY'S SUPERMARKETS: S&P Puts 'B' Credit Rating on Watch Pos.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings on Roundy's
Supermarkets Inc., including its 'B' corporate credit rating, on
CreditWatch with positive implications.

"Roundy's CreditWatch placement reflects our belief that proceeds
from the proposed IPO along with the concurrent refinancing would
reduce the company's total debt burden and improve credit ratios,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Charles Pinson-Rose.

"The company's parent filed a FORM S-1, in which it could raise up
to $230 million of total proceeds through an IPO, though we expect
net proceeds to reduce debt. We may consider a higher rating
depending upon the amount of debt reduction and the terms of the
new debt," S&P said.

"For example, if Roundy's reduces debt by $150 million, we
estimate that pro forma leverage would improve to 5.2x and
coverage would be near 2.5x (assuming interest costs of Roundy's
new debt is comparable with the company's current first-lien term
loan). Currently, we calculate operating lease-adjusted leverage
to be 5.7x, after Roundy's paid $54 million of term loan
borrowings in November; adjusted EBITDA coverage of interest was
2.1x at the end of the third quarter (Oct. 1, 2011). If Roundy's
does reduce debt by $150 million, we would still assess the
company's financial risk as 'highly leveraged' (as we define the
term in our criteria), but may consider a higher rating based on
the ratios improvement," S&P said.

"However, any final ratings outcome would incorporate our
assessment of the company's near-term profitability prospects and
our forecasted credit ratios. The company's operations have been
relatively stable, and Roundy's has generated meaningful free cash
flow, which, if sustained, should allow for credit ratio
enhancement. However, we see limited profit growth opportunities,
given the difficult industry environment resulting from intense
competition, prolonged weakness in the U.S. economy, and continued
food cost inflation," S&P said.

"We intend to resolve the CreditWatch when the company completes
the IPO and the corresponding refinancing. We may consider a
higher rating, but believe an upgrade, if any, would be limited to
one notch. If Roundy's does not complete the IPO or does not have
a credible plan, in our view, to refinance or amend its first-lien
credit facility by the end of March 2012, we would either revise
or resolve our CreditWatch listing. Any such action would
incorporate our view that the company's liquidity would be 'less
than adequate,' a result of narrow cushion over financial
covenants of the first-lien facility and the near-term maturity of
Roundy's revolver -- due November of 2012," S&P said.

RUDEN MCCLOSKY: Greenspoon Sale an "Innovation"
-----------------------------------------------
Jacqueline Palank, writing for Dow Jones Newswires, reports that
the decision by law firm Ruden McClosky to use the bankruptcy
process to cinch a $7.8 million cash-and-debt sale to Greenspoon
Marder last week Monday has made it something of an innovator in
the legal profession.

"Companies across corporate America seek court protection while
they try to sell continuing businesses to potential white knights.
But until last week, law firms usually used bankruptcy to shut
down," Ms. Palank writes.

According to Ms. Palank, restructuring professionals say the deal
will likely encourage other troubled law firms to look to
bankruptcy court as a place to find help rather than a place to
die.

"I am seeing much greater interest on the part of law firms that
are experiencing financial stress to consider 'out of the box'
solutions to their financial dilemmas, including bankruptcy," says
Bill Brennan, a principal with legal consulting firm Altman Weil
Inc, according to the Dow Jones report.  "I expect that this will
become much more common in the very near future."

                       About Ruden McClosky

Founded in 1959, Ruden McClosky P.A., fdba Ruden, McClosky, Smith,
Schuster & Russell, P.A. -- http://www.ruden.com/-- was a full-
service law firm serving the legal needs of clients throughout
Florida, the U.S., and internationally.  It had eight offices in
Florida.

In August 2011, the firm was reportedly in merger talks with
Cleveland, Ohio-based Benesch firm.  In September 2011, founder
Donald McClosky died after a long battle with cancer.

Ruden McClosky filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. S.D. Fla.
Case No. 11-40603) on Nov. 1, 2011, in its hometown of Fort
Lauderdale, with a plan to sell a substantial portion of its
assets for $7.6 million to Fort Lauderdale-based Greenspoon
Marder, subject to higher and better offers at an auction.

Judge Raymond B. Ray oversees the case.  Leslie Gern Cloyd, Esq.,
and Paul Steven Singerman, Esq. -- lcloyd@bergersingerman.com and
singerman@bergersingerman.com -- at Berger Singerman, P.A., serve
as the Debtor's counsel.  Development Specialists, Inc., serves as
the Debtor's restructuring advisors.

The petition was signed by DSI's Joseph J. Luzinski, who serves as
chief restructuring officer.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC
serves as the Debtor's claims and noticing agent.  In its
petition, the Debtor estimated $10 million to $50 million in both
assets and debts.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case, and is represented by Segall Gordich, P.A.

Counsel to the Debtor's lender, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., is
Jonathan Helfat, Esq., at Otterbourg, Steindler, Houston & Rosen,
P.C.  Counsel to Greenspoon Marder, the proposed purchaser, is R.
Scott Shuker, Esq., at Latham, Shuker, Eden & Beaudine, LLP.

Ruden McClosky was authorized on Nov. 30 by the bankruptcy judge
to sell the firm to Greenspoon Marder for $5.6 million cash plus
assumption of $2 million in debt.


SACRED HEART: Moody's Withdraws 'Ca' Bond Rating
------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has withdrawn the Ca rating of Sacred
Heart Health System and removed it from Watchlist. The rating
action effects $19.3 million in rated debt outstanding.

SUMMARY RATINGS RATIONALE

The withdraw of the rating is prompted by the lack of issuer
information regarding operations, strategy, financial performance.
As noted in the November 10, 2011 Watchlist report, if information
was not received in 30 days, Moody's will take appropriate rating
action which could include the withdrawal, raising or lowering of
the rating. In the absence of this information, Moody's believes
that it is unable to provide investors with an informed assessment
of the current credit quality of this debt instrument. Moody's
notes the improvement in operating performance and balance sheet
growth in fiscal year 2011. However, due to lack of communication
with the issuer regarding strategy and performance, historical
volatile operating performance Moody's is taking no action at this
time except to withdraw the rating.

WITHDRAWAL REASON

Moody's has withdrawn the rating because it believes it has
insufficient or otherwise inadequate information to support the
maintenance of the rating.

----------------------------------------------------------------

SNOKIST GROWERS: Food-Safety Issues, Financing Woes Prompt Ch.11
----------------------------------------------------------------
Stephanie Gleason, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reports Snokist Growers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Dec. 7
with plans to liquidate after sales couldn't recover from
allegations that it violated food-safety rules.  According to DBR,
Snokist blamed the Food and Drug Administration's actions for
lowering sales too dramatically for them to continue operating.

DBR relates that during an inspection earlier this year of Snokist
Grower's warehouse, the Food and Drug Administration found eight
instances between January 2010 and December 2010 in which the
company was reprocessing applesauce that was moldy by using
methods that the FDA said doesn't effectively kill the toxins.
The inspection was prompted by an incident in May 2011 when
Snokist applesauce, which at the time was part of the U.S.
Department of Agriculture school-lunch program, made 18 North
Carolina schoolchildren sick.  All the children recovered, but the
company was forced to recall the product, it said.

Snokist disclosed $69 million in assets and between $50 million
and $100 million in debts in its petition.  DBR relates Snokist
owes lenders Rabo AgriFinance Inc. and KeyBank more than $25
million.  The majority of creditors are individual grower-members
of the cooperative, owed more than $100,000 each.

Snokist said it expects the liquidation of its assets to be enough
to fully repay creditors.

Tyler Slauson at KIMATV.com reports that during 2009 and 2010,
Snokist's strained relationship with its operating lender and its
unwillingness to provide Snokist sufficient operational funds
disabled Snokist's ability to process the volume of fruit
necessary to support sustainability and profitability.  In March,
2011, Snokist entered into agreement with a replacement lender
more familiar with seasonal vagaries of agricultural endeavors
which allowed Snokist to access a new operating line of credit.
Management and the board were hopeful the new line of credit would
reverse the company's losses of the prior years.  But, KIMATV.com
notes, the new lender was reluctant to provide Snokist the
necessary funds to cover large losses.

KIMATV.com relates the board of directors and the management are
in the process of exploring a number of different options for the
potential sale, lease or operation of the company's facilities.

Yakima, Washington-based Snokist Growers -- http://www.snokist.com
-- is a century-old cooperative of fruit growers.  Snokist
provides fresh and processed pears, apples, cherries, plums, and
nectarines.

SOLYNDRA LLC: White House Denies Cherry-Picking Docs
----------------------------------------------------
Martin Bricketto at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the White House
on Tuesday denied House Republicans' accusations that it cherry-
picked only a small number of documents in response to subpoenas
concerning the government's $535 million loan guarantee to
bankrupt solar panel manufacturer Solyndra LLC, according to a
news report.  The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee has
blasted the White House for producing 136 pages of documents,
claiming it had numerous other documents that fall within the
parameters of its Nov. 3 subpoenas, Law360 relates.

                         About Solyndra LLC

Founded in 2005, Solyndra LLC is a U.S. manufacturer of solar
photovoltaic solar power systems specifically designed for large
commercial and industrial rooftops and for certain shaded
agriculture applications.  The Company had 968 full time employees
and 211 temporary employees.  Solyndra has sold more than 500,000
of its panels since 2008 and generated cumulative sales of over
$250 million.

Fremont, California-based Solyndra and affiliate 360 Degree Solar
Holdings Inc. sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D.
Del. Lead Case No. 11-12799) on Sept. 6, 2011.  Solyndra is at
least the third solar company to seek court protection from
creditors since August 2011.

Solyndra owed secured lenders $783.8 million, including
$527.8 million to the U.S. government pursuant to a federal loan
guarantee, and held assets valued at $859 million as of the
Petition date.  The U.S. Federal Financing Bank, owned by the U.S.
Treasury Department, is the Company's biggest lender.

In the Chapter 11 cases, the Debtors are pursuing a two-pronged
strategy to effectuate either a sale of their business to a
"turnkey" buyer who may acquire substantially all of Solyndra's
assets or, if the Debtors are unable to identify any such
potential buyers, an orderly liquidation of the Debtors' assets
for the benefit of their creditors.

Judge Mary F. Walrath presides over the Debtors' cases.  The
Debtors are represented by Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP as
legal adviser.  AlixPartners LLP serves as noticing claims and
balloting agent.  Imperial Capital LLC serves as the company's
investment banker and financial adviser.  The Debtors also tapped
former Massachusetts Governor William F. Weld, now with the law
firm McDermott Will & Emery, to represent the company in
government investigations and related litigation.  BDO Consulting,
a division of BDO USA, LLP, as financial advisor and BDO Capital
Advisors, LLC, serves as investment banker for the creditors'
panel.

Roberta A. DeAngelis, U.S. Trustee for Region 3, appointed seven
unsecured creditors to serve on the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors of Solyndra LLC.  The Committee has tapped
Blank Rome LLP as counsel.

Solyndra is at least the fourth solar company to seek court
protection from creditors since August 2011.  Other solar firms
are Evergreen Solar and start-up Spectrawatt Inc., both of which
filed in August, and Stirling Energy Systems Inc., which filed for
Chapter 7 bankruptcy late in September.

investors.

Horizon Village Square LLC (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 11-21034) owns

TERRESTAR NETWORKS: Files Revised Joint Chapter 11 Plan
-------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reports that TerreStar Networks filed with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court a Revised Joint Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization and related Revised Disclosure Statement.

The Debtors have revised the Disclosure Statement and the Plan to,
among other things, "reflect events that have transpired since the
filing of the Disclosure Statement and Plan, modify, add or amend
certain language on account of comments received from various
parties in interest in the Debtors' chapter 11 cases and correct
various clerical and typographical errors." According to documents
filed with the Court, "On November 18, 2011, the Debtors filed the
Plan with the Bankruptcy Court to facilitate the liquidation of
the Debtors' estates and the distribution of the proceeds from the
Sale Transaction and any other remaining assets to holders of
Allowed Claims. The Plan also contemplates the reorganization of
the Debtors for the limited purpose of operating the business
until consummation of the Sale Transaction," according to the
Disclosure Statement.

The Court scheduled a Dec. 21, 2011 hearing to consider the
Disclosure Statement.

           About TerreStar Corp. and TerreStar Networks

TerreStar Corporation and TerreStar Holdings, Inc., filed
voluntary Chapter 11 petitions with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York on Feb. 16, 2011.

TSC's Chapter 11 filing joins the bankruptcy proceedings of
TerreStar Networks Inc. and 12 other affiliates, which filed on
Oct. 19, 2010.  The October Chapter 11 cases are procedurally
consolidated under TSN's Case No. 10-15446 under Judge Sean H.
Lane.

TSC is the parent company of each of the October Debtors.  TSC has
four wholly owned direct subsidiaries: TerreStar Holdings, Inc.,
TerreStar New York Inc., Motient Holdings Inc., and MVH Holdings
Inc.

TSC's case is jointly administered with the cases of seven of the
October Debtors under the caption In re TerreStar Corporation, et
al., Case No. 11-10612 (SHL).  The seven Debtor entities who
sought joint administration with TSC are TerreStar New York Inc.,
Motient Communications Inc., Motient Holdings Inc., Motient
License Inc., Motient Services Inc., Motient Ventures Holdings
Inc., and MVH Holdings Inc.

TSC is a Delaware corporation whose main asset is the equity in
non-Debtor TerreStar 1.4 Holdings LLC, which has the right to use
a "1.4 GHz terrestrial spectrum" pursuant to 64 licenses issued by
the Federal Communication Commission.  TSC also has an indirect
89.3% ownership interest in TerreStar Network, Inc., which
operates a separate and distinct mobile communications business.
TerreStar Holdings is a Delaware corporation that directly holds
100% of the interests in 1.4 Holdings LLC.

TerreStar Networks -- TSN -- the principal operating entity of
TSC, developed an innovative wireless communications system to
provide mobile coverage throughout the United States and Canada
using satellite-terrestrial smartphones.  The system, however,
required an enormous amount of capital expenditures and initially
produced very little in the way of revenue.  TSN's available cash
and borrowing capacity were insufficient to cover its funding;
thus, forcing TSN to seek bankruptcy protection in October 2010.

TSC estimated assets and debts of $100 million to $500million in
its Chapter 11 petition.

Ira S. Dizengoff, Esq., at Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, LLP,
in New York, serves as counsel for the TSC and TSN Debtors.
Garden City Group is the claims and notice agent.  Blackstone
Advisory Partners LP is the financial advisor.  The Garden City
Group, Inc., is the claims and noticing agent in the Chapter 11
cases.

Otterbourg Steindler Houston & Rosen P.C. is the counsel to the
Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors formed in TSN's Chapter
11 cases.  FTI Consulting, Inc., is the Committee's financial
advisor.

TerreStar has signed a contract to sell its business to Dish
Network Corp. for $1.38 billion.  TerreStar canceled a June 30
auction because there were no competing bids submitted by the
deadline.

As reported in the TCR on Nov. 23, 2011, TerreStar Networks Inc.
sold the business to Dish Network Corp. for $1.38 billion,
negotiated a settlement with creditors, and filed a liquidating
Chapter 11 plan.  Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for
Bloomberg News, reports the hearing to approve the explanatory
disclosure statement is set for Dec. 16.  If the plan stays on
track, the confirmation hearing for approval
of the plan would take place Feb. 13.


TITANIUM GROUP: Reports HK$3 Million Net Income in Third quarter
----------------------------------------------------------------
Titanium Group Limited filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
reporting net income of HK$3.0 million on HK$15.8 million of
revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2011, compared with a
net loss of HK$802,247 on HK$4,805 of revenue for the same period
of 2010.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011, the Company has reported
net income of HK$882,405 on HK$32.7 million of revenue, compared
with a net loss of HK$3.8 million on HK$14,413 of revenue for the
same period last year.

The Company had an accumulated deficit of HK$20.0 million as of
Sept. 30, 2011.  "The continuation of the Group as a going concern
through Sept. 30, 2012, is dependent upon the continuing financial
support from its stockholders," the Company said in the filing.

These factors raise substantial doubt about the Group's ability to
continue as a going concern."

Wanchai, Hong Kong-based Titanium Group Limited, through its
wholly owned subsidiary Shenzhen Kanglv Technology Ltd., is
engaged in the manufacture and sales of electronic cable products
in the PRC.  Shenzhen Kanglv's principal products are various
types of computer cables, such as HDMI, DVI, VGA and USB cables,
as well as electric power cables.


TMP DIRECTIONAL: Wants to Use Cash Collateral to Fund Wind-Down
---------------------------------------------------------------
TMP Directional Marketing LLC seeks Bankruptcy Court authority to
use cash collateral securing obligations to its prepetition
secured lenders to fund an orderly wind-down of their operations.
The Debtors said General Electric Capital Corporation,
CapitalSource Finance LLC and Antares Capital Corporation have an
interest in the cash collateral.

The Debtors also proposed that they may be permitted to use cash
collateral until the earliest to occur of (a) 180 days after the
petition date, (b) the effective date of any plan of liquidation,
or (c) the first calendar day following the commencement of any
challenge on the amount, validity, priority, or security of the
lenders' prepetition liens.

The Prepetition Credit Agreement consisted of a Term Loan A with
GECC and Antares with "first out" priority of payment; a Term Loan
B with CapitalSource with "second out" priority of payment subject
to payment in full of Term Loan A; and revolving credit
commitments, in the aggregate amount of $10 million.  As of April
29, 2011, the Debtors paid down the Revolver while $6.67 million
was due on Term Loan A and $14.78 million was due on Term Loan B.
As of the Petition Date, the Debtors believe that the only
obligations outstanding to the prepetition lenders are on account
of indemnification obligations for contingent and unliquidated
liabilities.

On July 5, 2011, the prepetition lenders swept $300,000 from the
Debtors' bank accounts as a rserve for the Debtors' potential
obligations to the prepetition lenders under the indemnification
provisions.  If the Debtors' indemnification obligations are less
than $300,000, the lenders must return the remaining funds to the
Debtors.

As of Oct. 31, 2011, the Debtors have roughly $11 million cash
held in a GECC account, all of which serve as the lenders'
collateral.

As adequate protection of the lenders' interests against any
diminution in value of those interests, the Debtors propose to
grant the lenders additional and replacement liens on their
property.  The replacement liens do not include any action or
claim under Chapter 5 of the Bankruptcy Code.

                  About TMP Directional Marketing

TMP DIRECTIONAL: To Sell Medical Listings Biz to ABMS for $4MM
--------------------------------------------------------------
TMP Directional Marketing LLC is selling assets associated with
its online verification of physician certifications and current
status service business to ABMS Solutions LLC, free and clear of
all liens, claims, and encumbrances.

The TMP Medical Listings Business provides the Debtors' customers
that employ physicians with online verification of, and data with
regard to, physician certification and current physician status.
This business is the Debtors' only ongoing business segment.

This aspect of the Debtors' digital advertising business accounted
for roughly 12% of their digital advertising gross revenues during
the year ending Dec. 31, 2010.

ABMS provided the highest and best offer to purchase the TMP
Medical Listings Business after taking into account the purchase
price of $1 million, assumption of roughly $2.95 million in
liabilities, and the contractual relationship between the parties,
which effectively restricts the Debtors from selling the TMP
Medical Listings Business to a third party without the consent of
the American Board of Medical Specialties, the parent of ABMS.

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, ABMS will assume all executory
vendor contracts and related obligations relating to the TMP
Medical Listings Business, consisting of roughly six vendor
contracts.

The Debtors and the American Board of Medical Specialties as
licensor are parties to a License and Web Services Agreement,
which provides the Debtors with a non-exclusive, non-transferable
and non-assignable license to use the Licensor's database of
licensed physician specialists and provides the basis for the TMP
Medical Listings Business.

The TMP Medical Listings Business includes the CERTIFACTS Online
subscription to the online database and Certification Profile
Services for identifying and certifying specific physician
specialties and certifications.  The License Agreement terminates
under its own terms on Dec. 31, 2012.

The Debtors have accrued $573,000 of unpaid royalties owed to the
Licensor under the License Agreement, which is an event of default
under the License Agreement giving the Licensor an immediate right
to terminate the License Agreement.  Without negotiating the
Purchase Agreement, the Licensor could have terminated the
Debtors' access to the licensed databases and effectively shut
down the TMP Medical Listings Business.  The Licensor has not done
so.

The Debtors propose a Sale Hearing after Dec. 28, 2011, as the
ABMS may terminate the Purchase Agreement if the Closing Date does
not occur before Dec. 31, 2011.

Counsel to the ABMS are:

TMP DIRECTIONAL: Hires Epiq as Claims and Notice Agent
------------------------------------------------------
TMP Directional Marketing LLC anticipates that there will be in
excess of 3,000 entities to be noticed in the Chapter 11 cases.
Accordingly, TMP Directional seeks Bankruptcy Court permission to
hire Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC as its notice, claims and
balloting agent.  Epiq has rendered services to the Debtors since
February 2011 in connection with their wind-down and prepackaged
bankruptcy preparations.  Pre-bankruptcy, the Debtors paid Epiq
$20,000 as retainer.

Jason D. Horwitz, vice president and senior consultant at Epiq,
attests that his firm neither holds nor represents an interest
materially adverse to the Debtors' estates with respect to any
matter for which it will be employed, and Epiq is a "disinterested
person" as that term is defined in Sec. 101(14) of the Bankruptcy
Code.

                  About TMP Directional Marketing

TMP Directional Marketing LLC, along with affiliates, filed for
bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 11-13835) with plans to
liquidate its remaining assets according to a prepackaged plan.
TMP specialized in placing ads in the yellow pages of local
telephone books. Before ceasing substantially all of operations in
early April 2011, TMP was one of the leading providers of directed
search marketing in the United States, employing nearly 400 people
in 10 offices throughout the country.

TMP was spun off from Monster Worldwide Inc.  Audax Group acquired
TMP in the 2005 spinoff.  Monster isn't in bankruptcy and is no
longer involved in the company.

The Chapter 11 plan has been accepted by more than 95% of voting
creditors.  The Company estimated that unsecured creditors will
collect 11% to 18% of what they are owed.  Secured lenders
required TMP to pay them off earlier this year, helping cause the
business to shut down.  Unsecured creditors, asserting $112
million in claims, formed an ad hoc committee to negotiate the
Chapter 11 plan.  The Ad Hoc Committee consists of AT&T Yellow
Pages Holdings LLC; Genesis Publisher Services, SuperMedia LLC,
Dex One Corporation, Directory Publishing Solutions Inc., Local
Insight Media Holdings Inc., National Solutions, Inc., Yellowbook,
Inc., and Names and Numbers.  Other members may be added from time
to time.

TMP's petition disclosed assets of $65.3 million, with debt
totaling $134.8 million.  Among the debt, $132.9 million is
unsecured.  James A. Stempel, Esq., and Ryan Blaine Bennett, Esq.,
at Kirkland & Ellis LLP; and Domenic E. Pacitti, Esq., and Morton
Branzburg, Esq., at Klehr Harrison Harvey Branzburg LLP, serve as

TMP DIRECTIONAL: Rejects Leases for Vacant Office Spaces
--------------------------------------------------------
TMP Directional Marketing LLC wants to walk away from certain
unexpired non-residential real property leases for vacant office
space, saying the Debtors are consolidating office space as part
of their wind-down process and have determined that they no longer
need the leases.  The Debtors have stopped paying the rent
required by the leases, which results in the Debtors incurring
$206,437 per month in additional unsecured claims against their
estates.

raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as
a going concern."

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

VITRO SAB: Judge Deals Blow, Says Bonds Governed By N.Y. Law
------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that a fight between
Vitro, S.A.B. de C.V. and its creditors is heating up, as a New
York judge ruled that the Mexican glass maker must honor more than
$1 billion in debt obligations to a group of disgruntled
bondholders.

                        About Vitro SAB

Headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, Vitro, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:
VITROA; NYSE: VTO), through its two subsidiaries, Vitro Envases
Norteamerica, SA de C.V. and Vimexico, S.A. de C.V., is a global
glass producer, serving the construction and automotive glass
markets and glass containers needs of the food, beverage, wine,
liquor, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.

Vitro is the largest manufacturer of glass containers and flat
glass in Mexico, with consolidated net sales in 2009 of MXN23,991
million (US$1.837 billion).

Vitro defaulted on its debt in 2009, and sought to restructure
around US$1.5 billion in debt, including US$1.2 billion in notes.
Vitro launched an offer to buy back or swap US$1.2 billion in debt
from bondholders.  The tender offer would be consummated with a
bankruptcy filing in Mexico and Chapter 15 filing in the United
States.  Vitro said noteholders would recover as much as 73% by
exchanging existing debt for cash, new debt or convertible bonds.

          Concurso Mercantil & Chapter 15 Proceedings

Vitro SAB on Dec. 13, 2010, filed its voluntary petition for a
pre-packaged Concurso Plan in the Federal District Court for
Civil and Labor Matters for the State of Nuevo Leon, commencing
its voluntary concurso mercantil proceedings -- the Mexican
equivalent of a prepackaged Chapter 11 reorganization.  Vitro SAB
also commenced parallel proceedings under Chapter 15 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 10-16619) in Manhattan
on Dec. 13, 2010, to seek U.S. recognition and deference to its
bankruptcy proceedings in Mexico.

Early in January 2011, the Mexican Court dismissed the Concurso
Mercantil proceedings.  The judge said Vitro couldn't push through
a plan to buy back or swap US$1.2 billion in debt from bondholders
based on the vote of US$1.9 billion of intercompany debt when
third-party creditors were opposed.  Vitro as a result dismissed
the first Chapter 15 petition following the ruling by the Mexican
court.

On April 12, 2011, an appellate court in Mexico reinstated the
reorganization.  Accordingly, Vitro SAB on April 14 re-filed a
petition for recognition of its Mexican reorganization in U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 11-
11754).

The Vitro parent told the Mexico stock exchange that it received
sufficient acceptances of its reorganization pending in a court in
Monterrey.  The approval vote was evidently obtained using claims
of affiliates.  The bondholders are opposing the Mexican
reorganization plan because shareholders could retain ownership
while bondholders aren't being paid in full.  Bondholders
previously cited an "independent analyst" who estimated the
Mexican plan was worth 49% to 54% of creditors'
claims.

In the present Chapter 15 case, the Debtor seeks to block any
creditor suits in the U.S. pending the reorganization in Mexico.

                    Chapter 11 Proceedings

A group of noteholders opposed the exchange -- namely Knighthead
Master Fund, L.P., Lord Abbett Bond-Debenture Fund, Inc.,
Davidson Kempner Distressed Opportunities Fund LP, and Brookville
Horizons Fund, L.P.  Together, they held US$75 million, or
approximately 6% of the outstanding bond debt.  The Noteholder
group commenced involuntary bankruptcy cases under Chapter 11 of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code against Vitro Asset Corp. (Bankr. N.D.
Tex. Case No. 10-47470) and 15 other affiliates on Nov. 17, 2010.

Vitro engaged Susman Godfrey, L.L.P. as U.S. special litigation
counsel to analyze the potential rights that Vitro may exercise in
the United States against the ad hoc group of dissident
bondholders and its advisors.

A larger group of noteholders, known as the Ad Hoc Group of Vitro
Noteholders -- comprised of holders, or investment advisors to
holders, which represent approximately US$650 million of the
Senior Notes due 2012, 2013 and 2017 issued by Vitro -- was not
among the Chapter 11 petitioners, although the group has expressed
concerns over the exchange offer.  The group says the exchange
offer exposes Noteholders who consent to potential adverse
consequences that have not been disclosed by Vitro.  The group is
represented by John Cunningham, Esq., and Richard Kebrdle, Esq. at
White & Case LLP.

The U.S. affiliates subject to the involuntary petitions are Vitro
Chemicals, Fibers & Mining, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No.10-
47472); Vitro America, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47473);
Troper Services, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47474); Super
Sky Products, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47475); Super Sky
International, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47476); VVP
Holdings, LLC (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 0-47477); Amsilco
Holdings, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47478); B.B.O.
Holdings, Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47479); Binswanger
Glass Company (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47480); Crisa
Corporation (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47481); VVP Finance
Corporation (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47482); VVP Auto Glass,
Inc. (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47483); V-MX Holdings, LLC
(Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47484); and Vitro Packaging, LLC
(Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 10-47485).

A bankruptcy judge in Fort Worth, Texas, denied involuntary
Chapter 11 petitions filed against four U.S. subsidiaries.  On
April 6, 2011, Vitro SAB agreed to put Vitro units -- Vitro
America LLC and three other U.S. subsidiaries -- that were subject
to the involuntary petitions into voluntary Chapter 11. The Texas
Court on April 21 denied involuntary petitions against the eight
U.S. subsidiaries that didn't consent to being in Chapter 11.

Kurtzman Carson Consultants is the claims and notice agent to
Vitro America, et al.  Alvarez & Marsal North America LLC, is the
Debtors' operations and financial advisor.

The official committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the
Chapter 11 cases of Vitro America, et al., has selected Sarah
Link Schultz, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, in
Dallas, Texas, and Michael S. Stamer, Esq., Abid Qureshi, Esq.,
and Alexis Freeman, Esq., at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP,
in New York, as counsel.  Blackstone Advisory Partners L.P. serves
as financial advisor to the Committee.

Enterprises LLC, an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners Inc., for
US$55 million.

WASHINGTON MUTUAL: May Reach Plan Accord Today, Counsel Says
------------------------------------------------------------
Lance Duroni at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Washington Mutual
Inc. is making headway in mediation with creditors and
shareholders on the issues that sunk its reorganization plan, and
could mint a deal by Monday allowing for a third try at exiting
bankruptcy, an attorney for the holding company said Thursday.

According to Law360, Brian Rosen of Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP told
the Delaware bankruptcy court that the parties had been meeting
nonstop to forge a settlement that would set WMI on course for a
late February emergence from Chapter 11.

                        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.

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 REFINING: S&P Raises Senior Secured Debt Rating to 'B+'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its issue ratings on
Western Refining Inc.'s (Western's) senior secured debt to 'B+'
from 'B' and revised the recovery ratings on this debt to '2',
indicating our expectation for substantial recovery (70% to 90%)
in the event of a payment default, from '3'.

The rating action reflects Western's planned redemption of its
$275 million senior secured floating rate notes and the resulting
improved recovery prospects for senior secured lenders due to a
reduction in debt outstanding. The action also incorporates the
divestiture of its Yorktown, Va. facility and crude oil pipeline
in southeast New Mexico, which Western agreed to sell for $220
million.

The rating on El Paso, Texas-based Western Refining (Western)
reflects the company's exposure to the cyclical and capital-
intensive refining industry, volatile operating margins, and a
high degree of operating leverage. Ratings also reflect its
adequate liquidity, decent proceeds from the sale of its Yorktown
facility, and the company's plans to pay down a portion of its
borrowings.

ZALE CORP: Seven Directors Elected at Annual Meeting
----------------------------------------------------
Zale Corporation, on Dec. 2, 2011, held its annual meeting of
stockholders.  At the Annual Meeting, stockholders elected Neale
Attenborough, Yuval Braverman, David F. Dyer, Kenneth B. Gilman,
Theo Killion, John B. Lowe, Jr., and Joshua Olshansky.
Stockholders approved the 2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan.
Stockholders approved the Company's executive compensation.
Majority of the shareholders voted on a proposal to conduct a non-
binding vote on executive compensation every year.  The
appointment of Ernst & Young LLP as the Company's independent
registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending
July 31, 2012, was ratified.

The Board of Directors of the Company approved the Zale
Corporation 2011 Omnibus Incentive Compensation Plan on Sept. 23,
2011.

The 2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan provides for the grant to
officers, employees, and other service providers of the Company
and its affiliates of options to purchase shares of the Company's
common stock and other awards, which awards may be incentive stock
options, non-qualified stock options, stock appreciation rights,
restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, incentive awards,
other stock awards, dividend equivalents and cash awards.  The
2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan replaces the Zale Corporation 2003
Stock Incentive Plan and the Zale Corporation Non-Employee
Director Equity Compensation Plan.  Existing awards previously
granted under the 2003 Incentive Plan and the Director Plan will
continue to remain outstanding in accordance with their terms;
however, all future awards will be made under the 2011 Omnibus
Incentive Plan.

The maximum aggregate number of shares of Common Stock which may
be subject to Awards under the 2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan is (i)
2,385,000 shares of Common Stock minus (ii) that number of shares
of Common Stock that are represented by awards which were granted
after July 31, 2011, under the 2003 Incentive and the Director
Plan.  If after July 31, 2011, awards granted under the 2003
Incentive Plan or the Director Plan subsequently expire or
otherwise lapse, are terminated or forfeited or are settled in
cash, or are exchanged, with the permission of the Company's
Compensation Committee, for awards not covering shares of Common
Stock, the shares of Common Stock subject to such awards will be
added to the maximum aggregate number of shares of Common Stock to
which Awards may be subject under the 2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan.

The 2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan provides for accelerated vesting
of Awards under certain circumstances in connection with a
participant's termination of employment or a Change in Control.

The Company's Board of Directors may amend or terminate the 2011
Omnibus Incentive Plan at any time; provided, however, that no
amendment may adversely impair the rights of a participant with
respect to outstanding Awards without the participant's consent.
An amendment will be contingent on approval of the Company's
stockholders, to the extent required by law, any tax or regulatory
requirement, by the rules of any stock exchange on which the
Company's securities are then traded or if the amendment would (a)
increase the benefits accruing to plan participants, including any
amendment to the 2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan or any agreement to
permit a repricing of any outstanding Awards, (b) increase the
aggregate number of shares of Common Stock issuable under the 2011
Omnibus Incentive Plan, (c) modify the eligibility requirements of
the 2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan, or (d) change the performance
criteria set forth in the 2011 Omnibus Incentive Plan for
performance-based awards.

* Fitch Reports Annual Outlook on U.S. Technology Sector
--------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has published its annual outlook on the U.S.
Technology sector.  The report titled '2012 Outlook: U.S.
Technology' gives an overview of Technology sub-sectors hardware,
IT services, semi-conductors, distributors, electronic
manufacturing services, and transaction processors.

Fitch has a Stable Outlook on the U.S. Technology sector for 2012.
Fitch expects overall sector revenue growth to be flat to up low
single digits as pressure from a weak macro environment and
disruption from the Thailand flooding should be mitigated by
emerging markets, and increased demand for storage and software.

Key Themes and Concerns of Fitch's IT Outlook:

  -- Given the state of the global economy and the sector's
     increasing debt levels, there is limited ratings upside
     potential in 2012.

  -- Heading into 2012, the Investment Grade Technology sector is
     marked by strong liquidity and, in many cases, debt capacity
     at existing ratings.  As such, Fitch believes these
     Investment Grade Technology companies could withstand a
     double-dip recession and still maintain existing ratings.

  -- Additionally, Fitch would expect the majority of investment
     grade ratings to withstand negative growth in Emerging
     Markets.  This is due to the sector's liquidity, portfolio
     mix, competitive positions, general secular tailwinds, and,
     for some, counter-cyclical cash flows.  Under such a
     scenario, negative pressure would likely occur on HP, Ingram
     Micro, Western Union, and Texas Instruments.

  -- The high-yield technology sector has a fairly clear maturity
     schedule in 2012 (and 2013).  However, since the last
     recession, these companies have yet to generate the operating
     leverage needed to organically delever.  Another economic
     downturn could make another round of restructurings
     necessary.

  -- Fitch expects merger and acquisition (M&A) activity to slow
     in 2012.  Many active acquirers have built out well-rounded
     portfolios.  Dell Inc. and Hewlett-Packard Co. [HP], for
     example, now have storage, security, and networking making
     them less likely to acquire in 2012.  Software acquisitions,
     particularly in cloud computing, software-as-a-service and
     analytics, will continue to be active in 2012.

  -- Fitch expects tablets to extend the replacement cycle of PCs.
     This could result in working-capital unwinds for Dell and HP
     unless they establish a competitive product.  This could also
     pressure HP's Imaging and Printing Group business.  Microsoft
     Corp., Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) and Intel Corp.
     will also be pressured to establish a competitive product.

  -- From a downside risk perspective, HP is currently the only
     company with a Negative Rating Outlook.  It is Fitch's
     expectation that HP will reduce debt by several billion
     dollars in the next 12 - 18 months.  HP's 'A' rating
     partially takes into account the company's debt reduction
     efforts after its EDS acquisition in 2009.  Fitch believes HP
     can maintain its 'A' rating with sustainable core leverage
     below 1.25 times (x).  However, failure to reduce absolute
     debt levels over the next year could make Fitch less tolerant
     within that range given the weak macro environment and the
     secular challenges that could confront the Personal Systems
     and Imaging and Printing businesses.

  -- While HP is the only company with a Negative Outlook, CSC and
     First Data both need to meet growth expectations over the
     short-term or risk having their Outlooks revised to Negative.
     Specifically, Fitch expects CSC to generate at least $500
     million of free cash flow in their fiscal year 2012 and high-
     single digit EBITDA growth for First Data.  Finally, Texas
     Instruments' decreasingly diversified portfolio and marginal
     share losses in applications processors could put pressure on
     its outlook over the next year.

  -- Cash location and company fiscal policies may become a bigger
     concern in 2012 depending on the state of the economy.  The
     risk continues to exist that Tech companies use up
     significant portions of their liquidity and capacity on the
     heels of a downturn.  This concern is mitigated by the
     sector's performance during the 2008 - 2009 downturn where
     share repurchases were pulled back significantly and debt
     reduced.  Fitch would expect a similar dynamic to take place
     in another downturn.

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.
