17315 COLLINS: Files for Bankruptcy to Avert Foreclosure Action
---------------------------------------------------------------
Brian Bandell, senior reporter at South Florida Business Journal,
reports that 17315 Collins Avenue LLC, an affiliate of Wavestone
Properties, filed on Jan. 10, 212, for bankruptcy protection under
Chapter 11, listing both assets and debts of between $10 million
and $50 million.

According to the report, the filing came a day before the Company
was set to lose the property at foreclosure auction.  In December,
Corus Construction Venture won a foreclosure judgment against
17315 Collins Avenue over a $15.4 million mortgage.  The auction
was supposed to take place on Jan. 11, 2012.

The report notes CCV was formed by the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corp. and Starwood Capital Group to assume the loans of the failed
Corus Bank.

According to the report, the Company intends to restructure its
debt.  The Company had $5.5 million in gross income in 2011.  The
Debtor believes its property is worth $39.9 million.  In addition
to the $15.4 million in first mortgage with CCV, there is a $13
million second mortgage with an investment fund.

Miami attorney Joshua Dobin, with Meland Russin & Budwick, P.A.,
represents the Company.


5TH AVENUE: Counsel Wants Payam Khodadadi Disassociated from Case
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Winthrop Couchot Professional Corporation, 5th Avenue Partners,
LLC's counsel, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of California to disassociate Payam Khodadadi from the
Debtor's case.  Mr. Khodadadi is now an associate at McGuireWoods.

                     About 5th Avenue Partners

Newport Beach, California-based 5th Avenue Partners owns and
operates the Se San Diego hotel located in San Diego, California's
financial district.  The hotel has 184 guestrooms, a 5,500-square-
foot spa, a restaurant, rooftop bar and lounge, 20,000 square feet
of banquet space and meeting rooms, an outdoor rooftop pool,

owns next to the Se San Diego hotel building a 31,000-square-foot
building, which it leases to the House of Blues music club.

5th Avenue Partners, LLC, filed for Chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
C.D. Calif. Case No. 10-18667) on June 25, 2010.  Marc J.
Winthrop, Esq., at Winthrop Couchot PC, in Newport Beach,
California, serves as counsel to the Debtor.  Blitz Lee & Company
serves as its accountant.  Richard M. Kipperman was appointed as
chief restructuring officer.  The Company estimated assets at
$10 million to $50 million and debts at $50 million to
$100 million.  The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
tapped Baker & McKenzie LLP as counsel.


ACCESS PHARMACEUTICALS: Amends 8.6 Million Common Shares Offering
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Access Pharmaceuticals, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission a Pre-Effective Amendment No. 1 to Form S-1
registration statement relating to the offer and sale of up to
8,615,517 shares of common stock, $0.01 par value per share, of
the Company, by Ernest W. Andberg, Ayer Capital Partners Master
Fund, LP, Cranshire Capital Master Fund, Ltd., et al.  Access is
not selling any shares of common stock in this offering and
therefore will not receive any of the proceeds from this offering.
However, if the warrants are exercised, Access will receive the
proceeds from such exercise if payment is made in cash.  All costs
associated with this registration will be borne by Access.

The shares of common stock are being offered for sale by the
selling stockholders at prices established on the OTC Bulletin
Board during the term of this offering.  On Jan. 13, 2012, the
last reported sale price of the Company's common stock was $1.35
per share.  The Company's common stock is presently listed on the
OTC Bulletin Board under the symbol "ACCP".  These prices will
fluctuate based on the demand for the shares of common stock.

Brokers or dealers effecting transactions in these shares should
confirm that the shares are registered under the applicable state
law or that an exemption from registration is available.

No underwriter or person has been engaged to facilitate the sale
of shares of common stock in this offering.  None of the proceeds
from the sale of stock by the selling stockholders will be placed
in escrow, trust or any similar account.

A full-text copy of the amended prospectus is available at:

                    About Access Pharmaceuticals

Access Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is an emerging biopharmaceutical
company focused on developing pharmaceutical products primarily
based upon its nano-polymer chemistry technologies and other drug
delivery technologies.  The Company currently has one approved
product, one product candidate at Phase 3 of clinical development,
three product candidates in Phase 2 of clinical development and
other product candidates in pre-clinical development.

The Company reported a net loss of $7.54 million on $481,000 of
revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010, compared with a net loss
of $17.34 million on $352,000 of revenue during the prior year.

The Company also reported a net loss of $2.81 million on
$1.34 million of total revenues for the nine months ended
Sept. 30, 2011, compared with a net loss of $9.84 million on
$334,000 of total revenues for the same period during the prior
year.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed
$2.22 million in total assets, $25.68 million in total
liabilities, and a $23.46 million total stockholders' deficit.

As reported by the TCR on April 5, 2011, Whitley Penn LLP, in
Dallas, Texas, expressed substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern following the Company's
2010 results.  The independent auditors noted that the Company has
had recurring losses from operations, negative cash flows from
operating activities and has an accumulated deficit.


AGRIPROCESSORS INC: Iowa County Retains Liens After Asset Sale
--------------------------------------------------------------
Chief Bankruptcy Judge Thad J. Collins ruled that the liens of
Allamakee County, Iowa, was not extinguished by the order
approving the sale of Agriprocessors Inc.'s assets, free and
clear.  SHF Holdings LLC f/k/a SHF Industries, Inc., filed a
complaint seeking a declaration that the County's tax liens on
real property SHF purchased from Agriprocessors are void and
unenforceable against SHF.  In the lawsuit, captioned as SHF
HOLDINGS, LLC, f/k/a SHF INDUSTRIES, INC., v. ALLAMAKEE COUNTY,
Adv. Proc. No. 10-9070 (Bankr. N.D. Iowa), the County sought
summary judgment, which the Court granted in part.  The County
also made a Motion under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b) in
the bankruptcy case seeking to set aside the order allowing sale
of substantially all of the Debtor's property free and clear of
liens.  The Court, however, said the Motion to Set Aside Order
will be heard and decided with the final disposition of the
adversary case.  A copy of the Court's Jan. 17, 2012 Order is
available at http://is.gd/POo6MSfrom Leagle.com.

                     About Agriprocessors Inc.

Headquartered in Postville, Iowa, Agriprocessors once produced
half the kosher beef and 40% of the kosher poultry in the U.S.  It
filed for bankruptcy following a raid by immigration authorities
in May 2008 on the plant in Postville, Iowa, where 389 workers
were arrested for having forged immigration documents.  The
Company filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case No.
08-47472) on Nov. 4, 2008.  The case was later transferred to Iowa
(Bankr. N.D. Iowa Case No. 08-02751).  Kevin J. Nash, Esq., at
Finkel Goldstein Rosenbloom & Nash, represented the Company in its
restructuring effort.  The Debtor estimated assets and debts of
$100 million to $500 million in its Chapter 11 petition.

SHF Industries Inc. purchased substantially all of the Debtor's
assets for $8.5 million in July 2009, and renamed the company Agri
Star.  The Court approved the sale free and clear of all liens.

Agriprocessors' case was then converted to liquidation under
Chapter 7, at the consent of the Chapter 11 trustee appointed to
take over the estate.  The Chapter 11 trustee became the trustee
in the Chapter 7 case to liquidate the Debtor's remaining assets
and provide distributions to creditors.


ALEXANDER PROPERTIES: Bank's Response Deadline Moved to Feb. 10
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Patapsco Bank will have until Feb. 10, 2012, to respond to the
motion of Alexander Properties, L.L.C. for stay pending appeal of
the order denying approval of the disclosure statement explaining
its plan, according to a Fourth Stipulation signed off by
Bankruptcy Judge Nancy V. Alquist available at http://is.gd/I3fg0d
from Leagle.com.

Based in Annapolis, Maryland, Alexander Properties, L.L.C., and
Soultana Efthimiadis filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. D.
Md. Case Nos. 10-38095 and 10-38104) on Dec. 14, 2010.  James C.
Olson, Esq., serves as bankruptcy counsel.  Alexander Properties
estimated under $50,000 in assets and $1 million to $10 million in
debts.

Soultana Efthimiadis is represented by Aryeh E. Stein, Esq., at
Meridian Law LLC.  Efthimiadis estimated $100,001 to $500,000 in
assets and $1 million to $10 million in debts.

The Patapsco Bank, Alexander Properties' lender, is represented by
Michael C. Bolesta, Esq., at Gebhardt & Smith LLP.


AMERICAN AXLE: Fitch Affirms 'B+' Issuer Default Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the 'B+' Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs)
of American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings, Inc. (AXL) and its
subsidiary American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc. (AAM).

Fitch has also upgraded AAM's senior secured credit facility and
senior secured notes ratings to 'BB+/RR1' from 'BB/RR2'.  AAM's
senior unsecured rating has been affirmed at 'B-/RR6'.  AAM's
ratings apply to a $322 million secured revolving credit facility,
$383 million of senior secured notes and $750 million of senior
unsecured notes.

In addition, Fitch has revised the Rating Outlooks for AXL and AAM
to Positive from Stable.

The ratings for AXL and AAM reflect improvement seen in the
drivetrain and driveline supplier's credit profile over the past
two years as conditions in the global light vehicle market have
improved.  In particular, the company has benefited from
relatively strong pickup and sport-utility vehicle (SUV)
production at its two largest customers, General Motors Company
(GM) and Chrysler Group LLC.  In addition, AXL's business has
fundamentally strengthened as the company has experienced success
in diversifying its revenue base away from a heavy reliance on
light trucks.  Its backlog of new business wins is heavily
weighted toward passenger cars and crossover vehicles.  AXL also
continues to increase the geographical diversity of its revenue
base as the company wins business from a greater number of global
manufacturers.

Despite this revenue diversification, AXL's ratings continue to be
weighed upon in the near term by the company's continued heavy
exposure to GM's light truck platform; however, the significant
progress the company has made in reducing its cost base places it
in a better position today to withstand any downturn in near-term
light truck demand.  Also weighing on the ratings in the near term
is Fitch's expectation that free cash flow in 2012 will be limited
by the company's need to continue making investments to support
the significant growth in its business over the intermediate tem.
Longer-term, Fitch expects free cash flow to strengthen
meaningfully, as these new programs transition into regular
production.

AXL's three-year new business backlog stands at $1.1 billion, with
only about a quarter of the awards coming from GM.  Roughly 70% of
the backlog pertains to non-U.S. programs, and about two-thirds is
related to passenger car, crossover and commercial vehicle
production. With this level of increased sales diversification,
sales related to GM's full-size light truck and SUV platform are
expected to make up less than 45% of the company's revenue base
within three years, down from close to 60% in 2011.  Although AXL
will remain highly exposed to GM's full-size light truck platform
for at least the next several years, this exposure is expected to
continue declining over time.  In addition, Fitch expects the
company's new technologies, including its EcoTrac fully
disconnecting all-wheel drive (AWD) and electric AWD systems to
help increase its penetration in the global car and crossover
markets.  Although the EcoTrac electric AWD system has been
developed through a joint venture with Saab AB, Fitch does not
expect Saab's recent bankruptcy filing to have any meaningful
effect on the program.

Growth in global auto production, including increased production
of light trucks at GM and Chrysler, has driven a significant
increase in AXL's revenue in the post-recession period. At the
same time, Fitch estimates that AXL's breakeven level has declined
to a U.S. light vehicle seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR) of
around 10 million, or slightly below the level of sales seen
during the depressed auto environment in 2009.  The combination of
the company's lower cost base and the higher demand for its
products has driven AXL's EBITDA margins into the 15% range, which
is very high for an auto supplier.  Although maintaining margins
at this level will be difficult as the company's production grows
and becomes more diversified, Fitch nonetheless expects AXL to
continue producing margins at the high end of its peer group over
the intermediate term.

Margins are likely to decline somewhat in 2012 but still remain
relatively strong, as the company continues to produce an
increasing variety of products for a more diversified customer
base.  GM's production shift to the new K2XX light truck from the
current GMT900 is not expected to have a significant effect on
AXL's 2012 performance, however.  GM plans to retool its plants
for the new truck on a rolling basis and use overtime at open
plants to keep capacity near 2011 levels.  As a result, the
changeover is not expected to result in any significant impact on
AXL's deliveries for GM's light truck programs at any time during
the year.

On June 30, 2011, AXL terminated the Settlement and Commercial
agreement that it had entered into with GM during the depths of
the auto industry downturn.  As a result of the agreement's
termination, GM's payment terms to AXL shifted from a 'net 10
days' basis to a more typical 50-day basis.  In return, AXL
stopped providing a 1% early payment discount to GM.  The
termination of the program had a negative one-time affect on AXL's
working capital of about $190 million during the third quarter of
2011, which, in turn, resulted in free cash flow turning negative
in the 12 months ended Sept. 30, 2011.

To offset the negative effect on AXL's cash position from the
termination of the GM agreement, AXL initially borrowed from its
secured revolving credit facility during the third quarter of last
year, and later, in the fourth quarter, it issued $200 million of
new senior unsecured notes.  Fitch estimates that the increase in
debt drove leverage (debt/LTM EBITDA) up to the mid-3 times (x)
range at year end 2011, up from 2.8x at the end of the previous
quarter.  Fitch expects leverage to trend downward over the
intermediate term, however, as the company gains traction on its
new business wins.  Looking ahead, Fitch expects free cash flow to
be relatively weak, but positive, in 2012 with the steep ramp-up
in new business and as the company continues to make investments
in both capital assets and research and development work to
support growth opportunities in its customer base and product
offerings.  Beyond 2012, free cash flow is likely to strengthen
meaningfully as the new programs coming on line in the near term
begin to produce higher levels of cash.

The funded status of AXL's defined benefit pension plans was only
62% at year-end 2010, and although year-end 2011 pension figures
have not yet been released, Fitch expects the company's funded
status was also near that level at the end of 2011.  As a result,
pension contributions will also put some downward pressure on free
cash flow over the intermediate term, as low discount rates are
likely to lead to an increase in required cash contributions above
the $26 million contributed in the first nine months of 2011.
However, given AXL's relatively strong liquidity position, which
Fitch estimates was in the $500 million range (including revolver
availability) at year-end 2011, pension contributions over the
next several years are expected to be manageable. Fitch notes that
on a dollar basis, the company's pension plans were underfunded by
$253 million at year-end 2010.

As with all auto suppliers, the greatest risk to AXL's credit
profile is the potential for another slowing of the global
economy.  However, this is offset somewhat by the increasing
diversification of the company's customer base and its lower cost
structure, both of which have positioned the company to better
withstand another downturn in the auto market.  Furthermore, AXL's
direct exposure to a potential European recession is very limited,
with only about 3% of its revenue generated in the region.  A lack
of meaningful debt maturities until 2014 further helps to mitigate
liquidity risk over the next two years.

Another ongoing risk is the potential for a rise in U.S. fuel
prices to drive a decline in light truck demand, given the still-
substantial portion of the company's revenue that is derived from
light truck production. F itch expects light truck demand to hold
up better in a rising fuel cost environment today than during the
last spike in fuel prices, however, as a result of improved truck
fuel efficiency and ongoing demand from core truck customers.  In
addition to fuel price sensitivity, margins and free cash flow
could also be pressured by increasing raw materials prices,
although a decline in AXL's fixed cost base and a continued focus
on passing these costs through to customers will help to dampen
the effect.

The 'RR1' Recovery Ratings on AAM's secured revolving credit
facility and its senior secured notes reflects their strong
collateral coverage, including virtually all of the assets of AXL
and AAM, and their superior recovery prospects (estimated in the
90% to 100% range) in a distressed scenario.  Fitch has revised
the Recovery Rating on AAM's senior secured debt to 'RR1' from
'RR2' following the maturity of $53 million of secured credit
facility capacity, the termination of the $100 million GM second-
lien term loan facility and a $42.5 million prepayment on the
AAM's senior secured notes, all of which have reduced the amount
of potential secured debt in the company's capital structure,
improving recovery prospects for remaining secured debt holders.
The 'RR6' Recovery Rating on AAM's senior unsecured notes
continues to reflect estimated recovery prospects in the 0% to
10% range in a distressed scenario.

The ratings of AXL and AAM could be upgraded to 'BB-' in the
intermediate term if the company continues to further diversify
its customer base, produce positive free cash flow, reduce
leverage and increase the funded status of its pension plans.  On
the other hand, Fitch could undertake a negative action on the
company's ratings in the event of a substantial decline in global
light vehicle production resulting from a slowing of the global
economy or if a fall-off in light truck production, driven either
by fuel prices or economic factors, results in a material
reduction in the company's production volumes.

Fitch has taken the following rating actions:

AXL

  -- IDR affirmed at 'B+'.

AAM

  -- IDR affirmed at 'B+';
  -- Secured credit facility rating upgraded to 'BB+/RR1' from
     'BB/RR2';
  -- Senior secured notes rating upgraded to 'BB+/RR1' from
     'BB/RR2';
  -- Senior unsecured rating affirmed at 'B-/RR6'.

The Rating Outlooks for AXL and AAM are revised to Positive from
Stable


AMERICAN DEFENSE: Richard Torykian Resigns from Board
-----------------------------------------------------
Richard P. Torykian, Sr., notified the Board of Directors of

In the Letter, Mr. Torykian claimed he was resigning because he
disagreed with certain actions taken by the Board.  Until it
received the Letter, however, the Board and the Company were
unaware of Mr. Torykian's disagreement with any board actions
because all recent board actions were unanimously approved by the
Board in meetings in which Mr. Torykian actively participated and
voted.

ATLANTIC & PACIFIC: To Close Store in Egg Harbor Township
---------------------------------------------------------
Laura Stetser at Shore News Today reports that Great Atlantic &
Pacific Tea Company Inc., the parent company of the Pathmark
grocery store in Egg Harbor Township, said that it plans to close
Egg Harbor Township store as part of its bankruptcy proceedings.

According to the report, the location would be one of 14 stores
throughout the country to close as the company prepares to emerge
from Chapter 11.  Identified as "underperforming," the Black Horse
Pike location opened in the early 1970s, according to Marcy
Connor, an A&P public relations representative.

According to the report, A&P President and Chief Executive Officer
Sam Martin said, "We are continuing to take the steps necessary to
position A&P to emerge from Chapter 11 with a strong future and
ensure we remain focused on our top priority -- providing great
value and service to our customers every day.  "While this was a
very difficult decision that will unfortunately impact some of our
customers, partners, associates and the surrounding communities,
these actions are absolutely necessary as we continue to
strengthen (the company) operating foundation and improve
performance."

The report notes that the store should remain open until at least
March 2012.

                  About Great Atlantic & Pacific

Founded in 1859, Montvale, New Jersey-based Great Atlantic &
Pacific is a supermarket retailer, operating under a variety of
well-known trade names, or "banners" across the mid-Atlantic and
Northeastern United States.  Before filing for bankruptcy in 2010,
A&P operated 429 stores in 8 states and the District of Columbia
under the following trade names: A&P, Waldbaum's, Pathmark,
Pathmark Sav-a-Center, Best Cellars, The Food Emporium, Super
Foodmart, Super Fresh and Food Basics.  A&P had 41,000 employees
prior to the bankruptcy filing.

A&P and its affiliates filed Chapter 11 petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Case No. 10-24549) on Dec. 12, 2010, in White Plains, New York.
In its petition, A&P reported total assets of $2.5 billion and
liabilities of $3.2 billion as of Sept. 11, 2010.

Grocers Inc., its principal supplier.  The contract is designed to
save A&P $50 million a year when the supermarket operator emerges
from Chapter 11 reorganization.

A&P sold 12 Super-Fresh stores in the Baltimore-Washington area
for $37.83 million, plus the value of inventory.  Thirteen other
locations didn't attract buyers at auction and were closed mid-
July 2011.

A&P filed a proposed Chapter 11 plan founded upon a $490 million
debt and equity financing announced this month.  The proposed
financing, tentatively approved by the bankruptcy judge, allows
A&P to accept a better offer if one appears.  New investors
sponsoring the plan include Yucaipa Cos., Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
and Mount Kellett Capital Management LP.

-------------------------------------------------------
Jim Hayden at the Holland Sentinel, citing court documents,

report says Baker Lofts filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Jan. 10,
2012, and Central Lofts LLC filed Jan. 11, 2012, for Chapter 7
bankruptcy.

According to the report, the filings come the week after an Ottawa

The report says Mr. Bosgraaf's businesses Auto Sports Unlimited
and Faargsob LLC filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in May.  In June,
Huntington National Bank printed a legal notice of foreclosure on
Baker Lofts.

The report says the court appointed Amicus Management Inc. of
Grand Rapids as receiver for Mr. Bosgraaf's properties, which
include sites on Lakewood Boulevard, Aniline Avenue and James
Street in Holland Township, as well as Garfield Avenue in Zeeland.

Baker Lofts, LLC, filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. W.D. Mich.

in assets and debts.  Robert F. Wardrop, II, Esq., at Wardrop &
Wardrop, P.C., in Grand Rapids, Michigan, serves as counsel.

selling of the Debtor's real properties.  The Debtor will pay Mr.
O'Neal, along with any buyer's agent 6% commission based upon the
total gross sale price in accordance with the exclusive right to
sell listing agreement.

                        About Barbetta, LLC

Based in Selma, North Carolina, Barbetta, LLC, along with its
owners, Charles E. Hester and Barbetta G. Hester, own a combined
total of over 70 properties throughout the state of North
Carolina.  A significant majority of these properties are located
in Johnston County, North Carolina; however, the Debtor, along
with the Hesters, own property in 23 separate counties across the
state of North Carolina.  All of the income producing properties
are rental properties leased for either commercial or residential
use.  The Debtor is the surviving entity after a merger with
Hester 1996 Family Limited Partnership, South Pollock Street
Development & Sign Co., LLC, Hester 5, LLC, and Hester 8, LLC.

Jr. and Stubbs & Perdue, P.A., represents the Debtor in its
restructuring efforts.  The Debtor tapped Charles E. Hester, as

BC PABST: Files for Bankruptcy to Halt Foreclosure
--------------------------------------------------
BC Pabst Holdings LLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. E.D.
Wis. Case No. 12-20409) on Jan. 16, 2012, listing $101,600 in
assets and $4.98 million in debts.

It is represented by:

         Jeffrey C. Dan, Esq.
         CRANE, HEYMAN SIMON, WELCH & CLAR
         135 South LaSalle Street, Suite 1540
         Chicago, IL 60603-4297

Jacqueline Palank, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review,
reports that BC Pabst Holdings has ties to retired Green Bay
Packer player Mark Chmura, and owns a historic building that used
to be part of the Pabst Brewing Co. empire in downtown Milwaukee.
The three-story, 28,000-square-foot building was built in 1913 and
used to be a Pabst research lab, according to BizTimes Milwaukee.
Its renovation into the new home of Cardinal Stritch University's
downtown outpost was completed in 2009, when Stritch signed a
10-year lease, the Milwaukee Business Journal reported.

DBR relates the building in bankruptcy has been in trouble since
at least last year, when it was hit with a foreclosure lawsuit
from an affiliate of commercial real estate company Colony
Financial Inc., court papers show.  The Journal Sentinel reported
that the Colony affiliate, CRE Venture 2011-1 LLC, sought payment
of $4.8 million on an overdue loan.  The bankruptcy filing
automatically halts all pending litigation, including the pending
foreclosure suit.

Matthew Chmura of The Bando Chmura Group LLC signed the petition.

DBR recounts Mr. Chmura was a Packers Hall of Famer, playing as a
tight end for the football club from 1992 through 1999.  Mr.
Chmura was also at the center of a scandal in which he was charged
with sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl -- his children's
former babysitter -- at a party after her prom in 2000.  He was
acquitted the following year.

BERNARD L. MADOFF: Deutsche Bank Denies $1.6BB Deal to Buy Debt
---------------------------------------------------------------
Carolina Bolado at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Deutsche Bank
Securities Inc. last week fired back at two Bernard L. Madoff
Investment Securities LLC feeder funds, saying it had never signed
a binding agreement to buy $1.6 billion of the funds' outstanding
Madoff debt.  According to Law360, DBSI said an Aug. 24
confirmation letter it gave to British Virgin Islands-based funds
Kingate Global Fund Ltd. and Kingate Euro Fund Ltd. to buy their
Madoff claims did not bind the investment bank to the deal.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 22, 2011,
Kingate Global and Kingate Euro filed a lawsuit in New York
federal court accusing the Deutsche Bank AG unit of reneging on
the deal.  The Wall Street Journal's Michael Rothfeld reported
that the lawsuit filed by Kingate alleges that DBSI has been
dragging its feet since Aug. 24, when both parties signed a letter
confirming terms of its deal to purchase Madoff claims from
Kingate.  The lawsuit seeks a judgment stating that the
confirmation letter is binding and that Deutsche Bank hasn't
negotiated in good faith.  The hedge funds alleged the value of
the claims is down by more than $90 million since late August.

The Journal said the lawsuit is a sign of the negative
consequences of recent court decisions against the trustee
overseeing the bankruptcy of Mr. Madoff's firm.  Courts have
handed down recently a series of unfavorable decisions to Irving
Picard that limit his ability to further recover money.  Those
decisions have pushed down the value of Madoff-related claims to
60 cents or less on the dollar, according to the lawsuit.  Such
claims traded near 75 cents about six months ago.

Richard I. Werder Jr., Esq., represents the Kingate funds.

The Journal also noted the Kingate funds have been sued by Mr.
Picard for allegedly ignoring signs of the Ponzi scheme.  The
Deutsche Bank deal would allow the funds to complete a legal
settlement with Mr. Picard and distribute some money to its own
investors, the Kingate lawsuit says.

                      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.

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.

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.

                           About Kingate

On Sept. 4, 2009, the Supreme Court of Bermuda entered separate
orders to have the operations of Kingate Global Fund Ltd., and
Kingate Euro Fund Ltd. wound up.  On Oct. 5, 2009, the Supreme
Court appointed Messrs. John McKenna, William Tacon and Richard
Fogerty as the liquidators of the Funds.


BERNARD L. MADOFF: Trustee Loses Bid to Appeal in Mets Case
-----------------------------------------------------------
Ian Thoms at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a federal judge on
Tuesday refused to allow Irving Picard, the bankruptcy trustee for
Bernard L. Madoff's investment company, to appeal a decision that
gutted his high-profile clawback lawsuit against the owners of the
New York Mets.  Law360 relates that the decision paves the way for
the already-contentious battle between Mr. Picard and Mets owners
Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz to proceed to trial, which is slated to
start March 19.

recapitalize the Company while eliminating virtually all of the
Company's approximately $245 million of outstanding debt. The
recapitalization will provide the Company with resources to invest
in its proven reconcepting program, as well as its other
restaurant and profitability improvement initiatives.

In order to most effectively implement the restructuring, the
Company and all of its subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for
reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-10237). The Company expects to
promptly file a proposed plan of reorganization and related
disclosure statement, which have been pre-negotiated with, and
enjoy the full support of, 83% of the Company's lenders.

The Company anticipates completing the restructuring process and
exiting Chapter 11 within approximately six months.

"The important step we're taking today is the culmination of the
strategic alternatives review that our Board of Directors
initiated in May 2011," said Mike Andrews, CEO of Buffets.

"Today's announcement marks the beginning of a new era for Buffets
and our many dedicated employees, as well as for our loyal guests
and new customers who will enjoy our high quality food, friendly
hospitality and unbeatable value through a consistently improving
dining experience.  With the full support of senior lenders
holding 83% of our senior debt, we will recapitalize our balance
sheet, eliminate a burdensome debt load and increase our cash
flow, which in turn will strengthen our ability to invest in the
improvement of our restaurants through our reconcepting program
and other growth-oriented initiatives. We will now be able to more
effectively leverage our strong brands and operational strengths,
as we make long-term investments in the future success of our core
restaurants."

                    16% of Restaurants to Close

The Company intends to use the restructuring process to strengthen
its balance sheet and eliminate outstanding debt.  As part of this
process, the Company expects to promptly close 81 underperforming
restaurants, representing 16% of its nearly 500 restaurants
nationally.

Buffets, Inc., the nation's largest steak-buffet restaurant
company, currently operates 494 restaurants in 38 states,
comprised of 483 steak-buffet restaurants and 11 Tahoe Joe's
Famous Steakhouse(R) restaurants, and franchises 3 steak-buffet
restaurants in two states. The restaurants are principally
operated under the Old Country Buffet(R), HomeTown(R) Buffet,
Ryan's(R) and Fire Mountain(R) brands. Buffets employs 28,000 team
members and serves 140 million customers annually.

                      $50 Mil. DIP Financing

To fund their continuing operations during the restructuring, the
Debtors have secured a $50 million debtor-in-possession loan from
existing lender base, which in addition to cash on hand and
ongoing cash flow from operations, is expected to provide the
Company with ample liquidity to meet normal operating costs during
the restructuring process.  Credit Suisse Group, which led the
lenders that financed Buffets' 2008 bankruptcy, spearheads the
present lending syndicate.

                       Return to Chapter 11

"Although the Debtors reduced a significant amount of their long
term debt under their prior Chapter 11 plan, the Debtors have
continued to be adversely affected by the sluggish U.S. economy,"
says Keith Wall, executive vice president and CFO.

Buffets had 626 restaurants when it began its prior bankruptcy
case (Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 08-10141 to 08-10158).  It emerged
from bankruptcy in April 2009.

Higher gasoline and energy costs, along with a decline in guest
count, have hampered the Debtors' ability to service their long-
term debt and caused a liquidity strain, forcing the Company to
return to Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

In the new Chapter 11 case, Buffets Inc.'s legal advisors are
Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP and Young, Conaway,
Stargatt & Taylor, LLP.  The Company's financial advisor is
Moelis, Inc.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC is the claims and
notice agent.

CAPISTRANO TERRACE: Residents Near Reaching Settlement Deal
-----------------------------------------------------------
Penny Areval at SanJuanCapistranoPatch reports that the residents
of Capistrano Terrace Mobile Home Park on Valle Road have met to
discuss a settlement offer made by the owners, Capistrano Terrace
Ltd.

According to the report, bankruptcy attorney James Hinds, who is
representing Capistrano Terrace's creditors, said the residents
have decided to make a counteroffer.

The report notes that Judge Mark S. Wallace ordered the parties
into mediation in August, and the two sides have been talking ever
since.  Before all the legal entanglements began, Capistrano
Terrace owners made an offer to sell the property to the
homeowners for $11 million, but that was shelved after residents
filed the fail-to-maintain lawsuits in 2007.  The figures being
discussed now are way below that price, Hinds said.

The owners are "going to get a decent interest rate.  The
residents are willing to borrow money from the devil if the terms
are good," the report quotes Judge Hinds as saying.  The residents
supported the counteroffer's terms with a vote of 95 percent.

Lake Forest, California-based Capistrano Terrace Ltd. filed a
Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 11-19767) on
July 12, 2011.  D. Edward Hays, Esq., at Marshack Hays LLP, in
Irvine, California, serves as counsel to the Debtor.  The Debtor
estimated assets of $1 million to $10 million and debts of up to
$50 million.


CATALYST PAPER: Secures Deal to Cut Debt, May File for CCAA
-----------------------------------------------------------
Catalyst Paper Corp. secured the agreement of a group of
bondholders to restructure its balance sheet in a way that would
reduce its debt load and interest payments, allowing for the
company to navigate the turbulent paper and pulp industry.

Catalyst Paper's management team and Board of Directors believe
that the proposed recapitalization offers substantial benefits to
Catalyst Paper, including:

    * enhanced flexibility to respond to the downturn in the
      market for paper, newsprint and pulp;

    * improved capital structure: $315.4 million reduction in
      debt; and

    * reduced cash interest expense: up to $25.5 million reduction
      in annual cash interest expense ($37.0 million if paid in
      kind to the maximum extent possible).

Catalyst Paper's management team and Board of Directors believe
that, in view of the challenges and risks to the Company's ongoing
viability created by the current paper, newsprint and pulp markets
and the Company's existing capital structure, the recapitalization
is the best alternative available to the company and its
noteholders, shareholders and other stakeholders.  The new capital
structure will provide a stronger financial base for the execution
of the Company's operating strategy and enhance the long-term
value of the Company.

"This transaction addresses the company's capital structure and
interest payment obligations, extending its operating horizon,"
said Dallas Ross, director and chair of the Board's independent
committee overseeing the noteholder negotiation.  "Based on
extensive management analysis and independent review of options
related to preservation of enterprise value, the Board of
Directors is unanimous in its recommendation that all shareholders
and noteholders support this transaction."

The proposed recapitalization has the support of the Company's
creditors who have been subject to confidentiality agreements.
More specifically (a) holders of its 11% senior secured notes due
2016 holding approximately US$208.1 million aggregate principal
amount of outstanding Senior Secured Notes and (b) holders of its
7 3/8% senior notes due 2014 holding approximately US$54.5 million
aggregate principal amount of outstanding Senior Notes, have
signed the Agreement and agreed to vote in favour of and support
the recapitalization.  The Company expects further support of the
recapitalization from additional holders of Senior Secured Notes
and Senior Notes.

The Company intends to implement the recapitalization through a
plan of arrangement under the Canada Business Corporations Act.
Implementation of the plan of arrangement under the CBCA will be
subject to approval by not less than 66 2/3% of the votes cast by
holders of each of the Senior Secured Notes and the Senior Notes
at meetings to be held to consider the arrangement, the approval
of the Supreme Court of British Columbia and receipt of all
necessary regulatory and stock exchange approvals.  In addition,
the Agreement is subject to termination if a new labour agreement
with all union locals at the Company's Canadian mills has not been
ratified by Jan. 31, 2012.

The Company will continue to operate and satisfy its obligations
to trade creditors, customers and employees in the ordinary course
of business during the arrangement process.

                   Terms of the Recapitalization

Catalyst Paper's US$390.4 million aggregate principal amount of
outstanding Senior Secured Notes will be exchanged for:

  * US$325 million aggregate principal amount of new 11% first
    lien notes the terms of which are described below; and

  * 80% of the Company's common shares.

Catalyst Paper's US$250 million aggregate principal amount of
Senior Notes will be exchanged for:

  * 15% of the Company's common shares;

  * warrants which will be exercisable to acquire up to 15% of the
    fully diluted common shares of the Company as of the effective
    date of the recapitalization at an exercise price aggregate
    equity value of $111.7 million, for up to four years from the
    effective date of the recapitalization; and

  * an additional 4.5% of the Company's common shares, provided
    that only holders of Senior Notes that agree to support this
    recapitalization by the early consent date, which is currently
    fixed at Jan. 27, 2012, will be entitled to receive such
    additional common shares.

In total, additional common shares will be issued such that
99.5% of the common shares are held by the current holders of the
existing Senior Secured Notes and Senior Notes.  The remaining
0.5% of the company's common shares will be held by holders of the
existing common shares, provided that the recapitalization is
implemented under the CBCA.

Upon the implementation of the recapitalization, a new Board of
Directors will be appointed as part of the transaction.

The New Notes will have substantially the same terms and
conditions as the Company's existing Senior Secured Notes with
certain exceptions including:

  -- the maturity date of the New Notes will be the earlier of (i)
     six months after the end date of the new labour agreements
     and (ii) Dec. 16, 2017, provided that the maturity date will
     never be earlier than Dec. 16, 2016.

  -- interest on the New Notes will be payable semi-annually in
     cash at an annual interest rate of 11% or, at the option of
     Company, interest may be partially paid in kind, but if that
     option is taken for any semi-annual interest payment,
     interest for that payment will be calculated at an annual
     rate of 13% with 7.5% being paid in cash and 5.5% being paid
     in kind through the issuance of additional New Notes;

  -- the Company will be able to issue up to an additional US$75
     million in principal amount of New Notes, subject to the
     consent of holders of 75% in principal amount of New Notes if
     the Company's secured debt to EBITDA ratio, pro forma for the
     issuance of the additional New Notes, exceeds 3.0x; and

  -- the company will be able to repurchase the New Notes for 103%
     of their principal amount until Dec. 15, 2013, and 100%
     thereafter.

The holders of the Senior Secured Notes and the Senior Notes who
have signed the Agreement have agreed not to take any action to
enforce their rights under the Senior Secured Notes and the Senior
Notes, including by accelerating the notes as a result of the
Company's current non-payment of interest on the Senior Secured
Notes.  The Agreement is subject to termination in certain
circumstances, including: (i) by the holders of the Senior Secured
Notes and Senior Notes in the event that the Company does not pay
the overdue interest on the Senior Secured Notes on or before
Jan. 31, 2012; (ii) by the Company if by Jan. 31, 2012, holders of
at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding principal amount of the Senior
Secured Notes and Senior Notes have not signed the Agreement or a
joinder to the Agreement; and (iii) by the company if by Jan. 31,
2012, a new labour agreement with all union locals at the
Company's Canadian mills has not been ratified. The current labour
contracts expire April 30, 2012.

Details of the recapitalization will be provided in an information
circular expected to be distributed to shareholders and holders of
the Senior Secured Notes and Senior Notes in February, 2012.  The
recapitalization is expected to close by March 31, 2012.

A full-text copy of the Restructuring and Support Agreement is
available for free at http://is.gd/GoS5xs

              CCAA Filing and U.S. Bankruptcy Filing

The recapitalization under the CBCA will require approval by the
holders of the Senior Secured Notes, the holders of the Senior
Notes and such other securityholders of Catalyst Paper as the
court and the TSX may require.

In the event that the votes or approvals required to complete the
recapitalization under the CBCA are not obtained, the Company has
agreed to implement the recapitalization pursuant to the
Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act.  The Company will also
commence proceedings under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

The Agreement provides that in such case the shareholders of the
company would not receive anything in exchange for their common
shares.

The Company's Board of Directors, supported by a recommendation of
an independent committee of the Board, is unanimously recommending
that all shareholders and noteholders support the
recapitalization.

                           *     *     *

Catalyst Paper carries Moody's Investors Service's 'Caa3'
corporate family rating with the outlook "negative."

The Caa3 CFR reflects Moody's view that Catalyst's capital
structure is unsustainable and that material losses are likely in
a restructuring scenario.  The rating considers the company's
significant debt load, its weak financial performance and the
expectation that the company will continue to face challenging
industry conditions for some of its paper products.  Two of the
company's primary products, newsprint and directory paper,
continue to face secular demand declines. The rating is supported
by the company's position as one of the leading producers of
telephone directory paper in the world and specialty papers and
newsprint in Western North America.

Standard & Poor's gave the company an 'SD' (selective default) in
December following the deferred payment.


CENTURION PROPERTIES: Wants to Use Cash Collateral Until March 31
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Centurion Properties III, LLC, asks, in its sixth motion, the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Washington for
authorization to use cash collateral until March 31, 2012.

The Debtor relates that as of Dec. 9, 2011, it holds $3,857,652 in
its debtor-in-possession account(s).  The money is derived from
ongoing operations and management of the Debtor's property
postpetition.

The Debtor received an appraisal and appraisal review indicating
that the fair market value of the Debtor's property interest is
$87,886,000.

The Debtor will use the rents to administer the estate, meet
contractual obligations, and meet payments of creditors associated
with post-confirmation operations.

The Debtor relates that under the General Electric Capital
Corporation Mediated Settlement, all material terms of existing
cash collateral agreements between GECC and CPIII will remain
throughout the term of the mediated settlement.

As adequate protection from diminution in value of the lender's
collateral, the Debtor will make adequate protection payments to
GECC of $330,000 per month.

CROATAN SURF: Court Rejects Royal Bank's Stay Relief Motion
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Stephani W. Humrickhouse denied the request of
Royal Bank America for relief from the automatic stay pursuant to
11 U.S.C. Sec. 362(d) in the Chapter 11 case of Croatan Surf Club
LLC.

RBA financed the construction of Croatan Surf Club's 36-unit
condominium complex in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, through a
Dec. 20, 2007 loan.

The debtor filed a Chapter 11 petition on Jan. 10, 2011.  It filed
its original bankruptcy-exit plan on Jan. 14, 2011, and then filed
an amended chapter 11 plan on January 19, 2011.

RBA filed a proof of claim on Feb. 16, 2011, for $19,059,327.

The debtor filed a Second Amended Plan on Feb. 18, 2011.  That
same day, RBA sought relief from the stay pursuant to Sections
362(d)(1), (2), and (3), in which it asserted, inter alia, that a
plan could not be confirmed within a reasonable amount of time in
light of RBA's intent to ballot its claim and the claim of the
Edwards Family Partnership, a creditor whose claim RBA contended
it was entitled to vote pursuant to a subordination agreement,
against confirmation, thus depriving the debtor of an accepting
impaired class.

RBA's motion was originally addressed in a status conference on
March 10, 2011, and then first set for hearing on May 16, 2011.
Since that time, the hearing on the stay motion has been continued
multiple times with RBA's consent.

On Oct. 25, 2011, the Court entered an order determining that RBA
was not entitled to vote EFP's claim.  The debtor filed a Third
Amended Plan and an amendment to its disclosure statement three
days later, on Oct. 28, 2011.  The amended plan essentially only
modified the debtor's proposed treatment of RBA by correcting the
claim amount and providing that the lender would retain its
existing liens and priority until its secured claim was paid in
full.

On Nov. 3, 2011, the hearing on the disclosure statement and stay
motion set for Nov. 14, 2011 was cancelled, and both subsequently
were rescheduled for Dec. 12, 2011.

Soon after the filing of the Third Amended Plan and amendment to
the disclosure statement, RBA notified the Court and the debtor
that it would no longer consent to the continuation of the stay
and that it intended to proceed with the hearing on its stay
motion on the Dec. 12, 2011 hearing date.  It filed a supplemental
brief on Dec. 9, 2011, asserting that the lack of a "still-
existing" plan filed within the 90-day period provided an
additional ground for termination of the stay under Sec.
362(d)(3).  RBA argued that the Second Amended Plan, which was
filed within the 90-day period, was the only plan the Court could
consider for purposes of determining the debtor's compliance with
the statute, such that the consequence of the debtor filing an
amended plan meant that the debtor no longer had a timely-filed
plan with a reasonable possibility of being confirmed.

Accordingly, to RBA, this meant that the debtor was not in
compliance with Sec. 362(d)(3) and relief from the stay was
mandatory.  After the hearing, the Court indicated in an email to
all parties that the motion for relief from stay would, to the
extent that it relied on Sec. 362(d)(3), be denied.  The debtor
subsequently filed its Fourth Amended Plan, accompanied by a Third
Disclosure Statement, on Dec. 23, 2011.

In her Jan. 12, 2012 Order available at http://is.gd/bz3tNafrom
Leagle.com, Judge Humrickhouse held that, "In the court's view,
while there may be some disagreement as to the extent to which
Sec. 362(d)(3) circumscribes the actions of a SARE debtor in the
later stages of a chapter 11 case, this particular matter poses no
opportunity to explore them.  The debtor filed a plan that fell
well within the parameters of having a reasonable possibility of
being confirmed within a reasonable time, and there is therefore
no basis for the court to grant relief from the stay either
through termination, conditioning, or any other modification."

EASTMAN KODAK: Said to Hire Chief Restructuring Officer
-------------------------------------------------------
The Wall Street Journal's Dana Mattioli and Mike Spector report
that people familiar with the matter said Eastman Kodak Co. is
preparing to appoint a chief restructuring officer, a move that
could help the company secure financing needed to stay afloat
during bankruptcy proceedings.  The new executive would report to
the board and could have broad powers to manage Kodak's finances
and operations.

One source told WSJ that Antonio Perez would remain as Kodak's CEO
and chairman.

The sources said Kodak hasn't made a final decision to move ahead
with the appointment, however, Dominic Di Napoli, a vice chairman
at FTI Consulting Inc., is among those being considered for the
role.  FTI has been advising Kodak on ways to shore up its
finances since last year.

Mr. Di Napoli may be reached at:

          E-mail: dominic.dinapoli@fticonsulting.com

Bloomberg News, citing three people familiar with the matter, said
last week Kodak is in advanced talks with Citigroup Inc. to
provide bankruptcy financing as it prepares for a potential
filing.  Kodak may seek protection from creditors within weeks and
then hold an auction to sell its patent portfolio, said the
people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are
private.

One of the sources also told Bloomberg that Kodak's advisers are
lining up a "stalking horse" that would become the lead bidder for
a patent portfolio should it be auctioned via the Chapter 11
process.

WSJ's sources said Kodak is seeking about $1 billion in so-called
DIP financing.

One source told WSJ that Kodak's management and board were briefed
Friday on the company's efforts to secure bankruptcy financing.
They were told that naming a restructuring chief would make it
easier to line up investors for the loan, the person said.

Headquartered in Rochester, New York, Eastman Kodak Company
(NYSE:EK) -- http://www.kodak.com/-- provides imaging technology

Kodak's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $5.10 billion
in total assets, $6.75 billion in total liabilities and a
$1.65 billion total deficit.

In July 2011, the Company said it was exploring strategic
alternatives, including a potential sale, related to its digital
imaging patent portfolios.  Kodak hired Jones Day as legal adviser
and investment bank Lazard Ltd., but denied rumors it was filing
for bankruptcy.   It also enlisted FTI Consulting Inc.  In
December, Kodak hired Sullivan & Cromwell's restructuring
practice, replacing Jones Day.

A group of Kodak's bondholders have formed an informal committee
and hired law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP for advise.
Hogan Lovells has been hired to advise UK pension trustees.

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 3, 2011, Fitch Ratings affirmed and
then withdrew the 'CC' long-term Issuer Default Rating and issue
ratings of Eastman Kodak Company.  Fitch decided to discontinue
the rating, which is uncompensated.

Moody's Investors Service said in a report Nov. 7, 2011, that
Kodak will run out of cash in the U.S. around the second or third
quarters of 2012.

In the Jan. 9, 2012 edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Rating
Services lowered its long-term ratings on Kodak to 'CCC-' from
'CCC'.  "The current rating reflects both our expectation that
Kodak's pace of cash consumption will remain high over the near
term," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst John Moore, "and a
considerable risk that earnings and cash flow will be insufficient
to support debt through 2012." Absent a meaningful cash infusion
from asset sales or monetization of intellectual property (IP)
assets, the company could significantly deplete its liquidity with
its 2012 first-half working capital and growth investments.

As reported by the TCR on Jan. 9, 2012, Moody's Investors Service
lowered all Kodak ratings, including: the corporate family and
probability of default to Caa3 from Caa2, the senior unsecured to
Ca from Caa3, the senior secured to Caa1 from B3 and the
Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-4 from SGL-3.  The
rating downgrade reflects a heightened probability of a bankruptcy
over the near term as a result of a deteriorating liquidity
outlook, which Moody's believes is posing additional challenges to
consummating the sale or licensing agreements of Kodak's key
digital patents.  The negative outlook reflects Kodak's eroding
liquidity position and the higher probability of a bankruptcy
filing.


EASTMAN KODAK: Sues Samsung Over Patents Related to Tablet PCs
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Wall Street Journal's Dana Mattioli and Mike Spector report
that Eastman Kodak sued Samsung Electronics Co. Wednesday for
violating Kodak's patents with tablet computers including the
Galaxy Tab.

The suit, filed in federal court in Rochester, N.Y., is the latest
in a series filed by Kodak this month.

Kodak has sued Apple Inc. and HTC Corp. for violating patents
covering the transmission of photos from devices like mobile
phones and tablets.  It also sued rival Fujifilm Corp., alleging
its digital cameras violated patents covering image recording and
processing technology.

WSJ notes it is the second time Kodak has sued Samsung for
violating one of the patents, covering image preview technology
for electronic cameras.  Samsung paid $550 million to settle the
earlier suit, which covered Samsung's alleged violation of the
patent on its mobile phones.  WSJ relates Kodak has been settling
its patent suits on a product by product basis, giving it the
option to go after companies for similar alleged violations on new
gadgets.

Kodak also has patent litigation against such companies as Apple
Inc., Taiwan's HTC Corp., and BlackBerry maker Research in Motion
Ltd., which if successful could boost the value of its patents,
WSJ notes.

products and services to the photographic and graphic
communications markets.

Kodak's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $5.10 billion
in total assets, $6.75 billion in total liabilities and a
$1.65 billion total deficit.

In July 2011, the Company said it was exploring strategic
alternatives, including a potential sale, related to its digital
imaging patent portfolios.  Kodak hired Jones Day as legal adviser
and investment bank Lazard Ltd., but denied rumors it was filing
for bankruptcy.   It also enlisted FTI Consulting Inc.  In
December, Kodak hired Sullivan & Cromwell's restructuring
practice, replacing Jones Day.

A group of Kodak's bondholders have formed an informal committee
and hired law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP for advise.
Hogan Lovells has been hired to advise UK pension trustees.

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 3, 2011, Fitch Ratings affirmed and
then withdrew the 'CC' long-term Issuer Default Rating and issue
ratings of Eastman Kodak Company.  Fitch decided to discontinue
the rating, which is uncompensated.

Moody's Investors Service said in a report Nov. 7, 2011, that
Kodak will run out of cash in the U.S. around the second or third
quarters of 2012.

In the Jan. 9, 2012 edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's Rating
Services lowered its long-term ratings on Kodak to 'CCC-' from
'CCC'.  "The current rating reflects both our expectation that
Kodak's pace of cash consumption will remain high over the near
term," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst John Moore, "and a
considerable risk that earnings and cash flow will be insufficient
to support debt through 2012." Absent a meaningful cash infusion
from asset sales or monetization of intellectual property (IP)
assets, the company could significantly deplete its liquidity with
its 2012 first-half working capital and growth investments.

As reported by the TCR on Jan. 9, 2012, Moody's Investors Service
lowered all Kodak ratings, including: the corporate family and
probability of default to Caa3 from Caa2, the senior unsecured to
Ca from Caa3, the senior secured to Caa1 from B3 and the
Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-4 from SGL-3.  The
rating downgrade reflects a heightened probability of a bankruptcy
over the near term as a result of a deteriorating liquidity
outlook, which Moody's believes is posing additional challenges to
consummating the sale or licensing agreements of Kodak's key
digital patents.  The negative outlook reflects Kodak's eroding
liquidity position and the higher probability of a bankruptcy
filing.


EDWARD DEETS: No MORs Filed; U.S. Trustee Wants Chapter 7
---------------------------------------------------------
Roberta A. DeAngelis, the United States Trustee for Region 3,
filed a motion to convert the Chapter 11 case of Edward Deets
Holding Company, Inc., to one under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy
Code or, in the alternative, for dismissal of Debtor's Chapter 11
case.

The U.S. Trustee requested for the conversion of the Debtor's case
because the Debtor fails to timely file its monthly operating
reports for the months of October and November 2011 and to pay
quarterly fees.

The U.S. Trustee asserts that the conversion of Debtor's Chapter
11 case to a case under Chapter 7 is the appropriate remedy in
order that a trustee may be appointed to investigate Debtor's
financial affairs and, if appropriate, recover and administer
assets of the estate for the benefit of creditors. Alternatively,
the United States Trustee requests that Debtor's Chapter 11 case
be dismissed.

The U.S. Trustee is represented by:

GATEWAY METRO: Wants Access to Lenders' Cash Until March 30
-----------------------------------------------------------
Gateway Metro Center, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Central District of California for authorization to continue using
cash collateral of Road Bay Investments, LLC, and Flying Tigers,
LLC, through March 30, 2012, in accordance with a proposed budget.

The Debtor anticipates that it will need to use $203,934 in cash
collateral between Jan. 28, 2012, and March 30, 2012, to cover
utilities, property management expenses, building repair and
maintenance expenses, limited liability company taxes and fees,
leasing costs and other expenses related to the operation of the
Building.

The Debtor is also requesting one minor change from paragraph K of
the October 3rd Final Agreed Cash Collateral Order to allow the
Debtor to pay $3,650 to its accountant, Skeehan & Company, in
accordance with the Oct. 27, 2011 Order approving Skeehan's
employment.

Flying Tigers has consented to (a) the use of cash collateral
through March 30, 2012, and (b) the minor changes from the Oct.
3rd Order.

As reported in the TCR on Oct. 14, 2011, the Bankruptcy Court on
Oct. 3, 2011, authorized the Debtor, on a final basis, to use cash
collateral of Road Bay and Flying Tigers to pay actual expenses in
accordance with a budget.  In the event that the Debtor procures
new tenants for Gateway Metro Center, lenders agree that the
Debtor will be allowed to pay leasing commissions and/or tenant
improvement costs up to $10,000 per month in the aggregate.

As adequate protection for any diminution in the value of the
lenders' interest in collateral caused by the Debtor's use of cash
collateral, the Lenders are granted Replacement Liens upon all
categories of property of the Debtor and its estate.  To the
extent that the replacement liens are insufficient to adequately
protect any interest of the lenders, the Lenders are granted a
superpriority administrative expense claim and all of the benefits
and protections allowable under Section 507(b) of the Bankruptcy
Code, provided, that the superpriority administrative expense
claim granted to Flying Tigers will be subordinated to the
superpriority administrative expense claim of Road Bay.

GEORGES MARCIANO: US Trustee No Show, May Be Convicted of Contempt
------------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. trustee David Gottlieb, appointed by a U.S. Court in the
involuntary bankruptcy of Georges Marciano, did not appear at the
Montreal courthouse last Friday, despite a special order issued on
Dec. 29, 2011, by the Honourable Mark Schrager, judge of the
Superior Court of Quebec. Mr. Gottlieb is facing a charge of
contempt of court, which carries a fine of up to $5000 or
imprisonment.

As explained by Morty Freiheit, one of the prosecutors connected
with the Marciano case, "David Gottlieb seems to want to delay the
application of the judgement rendered against him in the interests
of his American clients."  According to the documents submitted to
the Superior Court, David Gottlieb is refusing not only to comply
with orders and return illegally obtained documents, but he
submitted them to a court in California for the benefit of his
clients as part of proceedings brought against Mr. Marciano by
former employees for hurt feelings.

Today the Honourable Judge Schrager issued a new order summoning
David Gottlieb to appear in court on January 20.  The court has
demanded that if he elects not to comply, he must solemnly declare
his refusal to appear and demonstrate that he understands he will
be liable to a fine or a prison sentence.  Furthermore, Judge
Schrager was unequivocal: he will proceed on January 20 with or
without Mr. Gottlieb and will rule on whether to issue an arrest
warrant in his name.

On Dec. 8, 2011, Judge Schrager rejected the search warrant and
the authorization to seize assets belonging to Georges Marciano
and third parties.  In his judgment, Judge Schrager ordered the
Gottlieb Trustee to return all assets that were seized from Mr.
Marciano before the trial (artwork, luxury vehicles, properties,
jewels, etc.).

                    About Georges Marciano

Georges Marciano is the co-founder of the apparel company Guess?,
Inc. and an investor in various companies and real estate
ventures.  Three of the five former employees of Mr. Marciano,
who won a $370 million libel judgment against him in July 2009,
filed an involuntary chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr. C.D.
Calif. Case No. 09-39630) against the Guess? Inc. co-founder on
Oct. 27 2009.  Mr. Marciano challenged the involuntary petition
for 14 months, and Judge Victoria S. Kaufman entered an order for
relief against Mr. Marciano on Dec. 29, 2010.

GREYSTONE PHARMA: Court OKs Deal Resolving IRS' Plan Objection
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Paulette J. Delk of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Tennessee approved a stipulation resolving
objection to confirmation of the Second Amended Plan of
Reorganization for Greystone Pharmaceuticals, Inc., as proposed by
First Texas Medical Partners, LLC.

The United States of America, a creditor acting through the
Internal Revenue Service, has objected to the confirmation of the
Plan.

The parties stipulated that the Plan would be modified as:

   1. All penalties as set forth on the IRS proof of claim and
that may accrued upon posting of the late filed returns listed on
the administrative claim are allowed.

   2. Nothing in the Plan will be construed to prohibit the IRS
from asserting the trust fund recovery penalty against former
officers, and directors of the Debtor or to exercise its statutory
authority to audit and assert claims based on open tax periods.

   3. The IRS administrative expense claim of $11,108 is allowed
and is to be paid within 30 days of the entry of the order
confirming the plan and will be paid at the statutory rate of
interest, which currently is 4%.

  4. The IRS priority claim is to be paid at the statutory rate of
interest, which currently is 4%.

   5. The IRS' unsecured general claim of $100,183, which includes
interest up to the date of the filing of the petition at the
statutory rate of interest is allowed and will be paid in the same
manner as all unsecured general claims.

   6. The IRS' priority claim of $425,653 will be paid in equal
monthly installments of $7,839, beginning 30 days from the date of
entry of the confirmation order until full paid within 5 years
form confirmation.

   7. The Debtor is prohibited form destroying tax records
necessary for the trust fund recovery penalty or audit purposes.

   8. The plan will include this default language:

   ORDERED, that if the Debtor fails to make any payment required
   by the confirmed plan of reorganization to the Service or fails
   to file any required federal tax return by the due date of such
   return and pay any outstanding tax liability shown on the
   return at the time the return is filed, then the United States
   may declare that the Debtor is in default of the plan; that
   failure to declare a default does not constitute a waiver by
   the United States of the right to declare that the Debtor is in
   default; that if the Untied States declares the Debtor to be in
   default of the Debtor's obligations under the plan, then the
   entire imposed liability, together with any unpaid current
   liabilities, will become due and payable immediately upon
   written demand to the Debtor; and that if full payment is not
   made within 30 days of such demand, then the Internal Revenue
   Service may collect any unpaid liabilities through the
   administrative collection provisions of the Internal Revenue
   Code.

   9. The consent order prevails over the plan as confirmed and is
incorporated into the plan by reference.

                         The Amended Plan

The Plan provides that 100% of the Allowed Claim of Fifth Third
Bank on the Class 2 Claim has been paid in full, the transferred
assets of Debtor will be transferred to First Texas on the
Effective Date free and clear of any and all liens, security
interests, and adverse claims of any nature whatsoever.  First
Texas will have the unrestricted right to assign the transferred
assets without altering the Debtor's right to payment.  First
Texas will have the right to designate at any time assets to be
excluded from the transferred assets.  The retained assets will
continue to be assets of Debtor to be administered by the
Liquidation Agent in accordance with the terms of the Plan.

Under the Plan, First Texas will provide financing in an amount of
approximately $5,000,000, which will be used to implement the Plan
and for working capital.  First Texas has acquired a funding
agreement of approximately $5,000,000, which will be used to
implement the Plan.  First Texas intends to obtain the funding
from MSB Fairway Capital Partners.  The initial draw on the line
of credit for payments due on Effective Date, other expenses (fees
of legal counsel for First Texas) and for working capital is
expected to be not less than $2,500,000.

exploration and production industry in the United States, Gulf of

The Company reported a net loss of $134.59 million on $657.48

The Company also reported a net loss of $54.64 million on $492.57

The Troubled Company Reporter said on Nov. 17, 2010, Moody's
Investors Service downgraded the Corporate Family Rating of
Hercules Offshore Inc. and the Probability of Default Rating to
Caa1 from B2.  Moody's also downgraded Hercules' 10.5% senior
secured notes due 2017, its senior secured revolving credit
facility due 2012, and its senior secured term loan B due 2013,
all to Caa1 with LGD3, 45%.  The outlook remains negative.

"The inability of Hercules to generate meaningful free cash flow
despite limited reinvestment in its aging fleet of rigs is cause
for concern," commented Stuart Miller, Moody's Senior Analyst.
"Without a significant de-leveraging of its balance sheet,
Hercules is following a path that could lead to financial hardship
at the first sign of a market softening."  Hercules' Caa1 CFR
rating reflects its highly leveraged balance sheet and limited
ability to generate free cash flow.  The Caa1 rating on the senior
secured notes reflects their pari passu secured position in
Hercules' capital structure relative to the senior secured credit
facilities.


HOSTESS BRANDS: Ch. 11 Runs Into Confusion Over Union Talks
-----------------------------------------------------------
Hilary Russ at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that time-sensitive talks
between freshly bankrupt Hostess Brands Inc. and labor unions
appeared to be muddled last week in New York bankruptcy court
because of confusion about who was authorized to negotiate on
behalf of many of its 19,000 employees.

Law360 says the talks, and the timing, are critical. If the
company can't reach some accord on collective bargaining
agreements within 75 days, Hostess' post-petition lenders -- which
are providing access to $35 million in immediate financing to fund
business operations -- can demand that the company start selling
off, according to the report.

                       About Hostess Brands

Founded in 1930, Irving, Texas-based Hostess Brands Inc., is known
for iconic brands such as Butternut, Ding Dongs, Dolly Madison,
Drake's, Home Pride, Ho Hos, Hostess, Merita, Nature's Pride,
Twinkies and Wonder.  Hostess has 36 bakeries, 565 distribution
centers and 570 outlets in 49 states.

Hostess filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection early morning
on Jan. 11, 2011 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case Nos. 12-22051 through
12-22056) in White Plains, New York.  Debtor-affiliates that filed
separate Chapter 11 petition are IBC Sales Corporation, IBC
Trucking LLC, IBC Services LLC, Interstate Brands Corporation, and
MCF Legacy Inc.  Hostess Brands disclosed assets of $982 million
and liabilities of $1.43 billion as of Dec. 10, 2011.  Debt
includes $860 million on four loan agreements.  Trade suppliers
are owed as much as $60 million.

The bankruptcy filing was made two years after predecessors
Interstate Bakeries Corp. and its affiliates emerged from
bankruptcy (Bankr. W.D. Mo. Case No. 04-45814).  Ripplewood
Holding LLC, after providing $130 million to finance the plan,
obtained control of IBC's business following the prior
reorganization.  Hostess Brands is privately held.  The new owners
pursued new Chapter 11 cases to escape from what they called
"uncompetitive and unsustainable" union contracts, pension plans,
and health benefit programs.

In 2011, Hostess retained Houlihan Lokey to explore sales of its
smaller assets and individual brands.  Houlihan Lokey oversaw the
sale of Mrs. Cubbison's to Sugar Foods Corporation for $12
million, but was unable to sell any of Hostess' core assets.

Judge Robert D. Drain oversees the case.  Hostess has hired Jones
Day as bankruptcy counsel; Stinson Morrison Hecker LLP as general
corporate counsel and conflicts counsel; Perella Weinberg Partners
LP as investment bankers, and Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as
administrative agent.

Matthew Feldman, Esq., at Willkie Farr & Gallagher, and Harry
Wilson, the head of turnaround and restructuring firm MAEVA
Advisors, are representing the Teamsters union.


HOTEL AIRPORT: Files Chapter 11 Plan, To Pay Creditors in 3 Years
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Hotel Airport Inc. filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Puerto Rico a plan of reorganization and accompanying
disclosure statement on Dec. 9, 2011.

Holders of administrative expense claims and priority claims will
be paid in full on the Plan's effective date.

The classes of creditors and interests designated in the Plan are:

  -- Class 1 Secured Claim by Firstbank.  The Class is comprised
     of the secured claim of FirstBank, which is secured with a
     mortgage encumbering the Debtor's main asset -- its lease
     contract with Puerto Rico Ports Authority, and virtually
     all the other assets.  As part of several transactions made
     during the process of acquisition in 2008, Firstbank
     granted an $11,000,000 loan to Caribbean Airport Facilities
     Inc., guaranteed by its wholly-owned subsidiary HAI, which
     later became a co-obligee.  The outstanding balance of the
     loan is approximately $9,000,000;

  -- Class 2 Puerto Rico Ports Authority Claim.  The Class is
     comprised of the claims of PRPA arising out of the lease
     contract for the premises used by the Debtor in the LMM
     International Airport.  Class 2 is subdivided into Class
     2A, and Class 2B:

     * Class 2A is that portion of the debt, which is secured
       with a $1 million deposited in the Superior Court case
       KPE2009-4313, together with any and all accrued interest;
       and

     * Class 2B is that portion of the debt which may be owed to
       PRPA in excess of the funds securing Class 2A;

  -- Class 3 General Unsecured.  The Class will consist of
     creditors with Allowed Unsecured Claims.  General unsecured
     creditors included in this Class were listed in the
     Debtor's Amended Schedule F in the total amount of
     $155,666,716.  A substantial portion of the general
     unsecured claims listed by the Debtor relate to its status
     as a co-obligor for loans made by Firstbank to related
     companies.  These loans made to those related companies are
     secured by property held by them, and are being paid
     according to the debt-service agreed between the creditor
     and the respective principal debtor.  Hence, the Debtor will
     not be making payments on the claims, but will remain as a
     guarantor in case of default.  The other unsecured claims
     are to be paid 100% of their allowed amounts, without
     interest, in 36 monthly installments starting 30 days after
     the Effective Date;

  -- Class 4 Stock Holders.  The Class is comprised of the stock
     holders of the Debtor.  Except as provided in the merge
     with Caribbean Airport Facilities, Inc., the members of the
     Class will retain their interest in stock, but will receive
     no dividends until payments to Class 3 (unsecured
     creditors) are concluded;

  -- Class 5 Other Sec. 507 Priorities.  The Class is comprised
     of the holders of claims entitled to priority under
     Sections 507(a)(1), 507(a)(4), 507(a)(5), 507(a)(6), or
     507(a)(7) of the Bankruptcy Code.  The only claims
     belonging to the Class are those held by the Debtor's
     employees for accumulated vacation.  The employees will
     remain entitled to enjoy the vacation leave in the ordinary
     course of the Debtor's business.  If there is any other
     type of Class 5 Claim, not identified by the Debtor as of
     this time, the same will receive -- in 36 monthly
     installments -- deferred cash payments of a value, as of
     the Effective Date, equal to the allowed amount of the
     Claim; and

  -- Priority Governmental Claims.  All unsecured priority
     governmental claims pursuant to Section 507(a)(8) of the
     Bankruptcy Code, as allowed, will be paid in 36 equal
     monthly installments, together with the applicable
     statutory interest accrued.  Payments will commence on
     Effective Date.

The Plan presents a scenario upon which it will be substantially
funded by the Debtor's assets and income from the operation of
business, according to David Tirri, the Debtor's president.  The
Plan also considers the Debtor's experience and knowledge of the
business and specific knowledge of Debtor's sector of the
industry.  The Reorganization process will take place under the
management of Mr. Tirri.

The Plan proposes a merger between the Debtor/HAI and and its
parent, CAF, whereby a single entity -- CAF -- will emerge.  HAI's
operations will continue under its present management as a
division of CAF.  The merger will take place upon the Effective
Date of the Plan.  The Debtor submits that the merger will
strengthen HAI's ability to operate and maintain its business.
CAF -- as successor in interest of HAI -- will assume its
obligations maintaining HAI's current assets, which are all
encumbered with secured debts.

Upon the merge with CAF, Mr. Tirri's position will be vice-
president, and general manager for the hotel operations, with his
compensation remaining at $15,000 per month in salary, plus
$10,000 per month for expenses.  Other insiders which may from
time to time be part of the management, due to their positions
with CAF are CAF's stockholders Anthony C. Tirri, Jean Tirri, and
Justin Tirri, with only Anthony C. Tirri receiving compensation of
$5,000 per month.

HRAF HOLDINGS: Court Confirms Amended Joint Plan
------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge R. Kimball Mosier in Utah confirmed the First
Amended Plan of Reorganization Under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy
Code filed jointly by HRAF Holdings, LLC and Harbor Real Asset
Fund, LP.  The Plan was filed Sept. 26, 2011.  The Court held a
hearing Jan. 12, 2012, to consider confirmation of the Plan.  A
copy of Judge Mosier's Jan. 12, 2012 Findings and Conclusions is
available at http://is.gd/WW97Oefrom Leagle.com.

The Dec. 5 edition of the Troubled Company Reporter outlined the
terms of the Plan.  Through the Joint Plan, the Debtors intend to
substantively consolidate their assets and liabilities and to then
repay creditors in full with the proceeds of the liquidation of
their assets, while preserving the pre-confirmation priorities of
creditors and interest holders.  The Reorganized Debtor may, but
is not required to, formalize the consolidation of HRAF and Harbor
by filing articles of merger, articles of dissolution or other
corporate filings, as the Reorganized Debtor may determine in its
sole discretion.

Since the Petition Date, HRAF has sold certain real property owned
by it as of the Petition Date for the aggregate purchase price of
$3,097,500, and currently is holding $2,579,696 in its bank
accounts.

The Debtors propose to liquidate their remaining real estate
holdings and other assets in an orderly process designed to
maximize returns to all stakeholders.  The Reorganized Debtor will
pay in full the claim of Loan Acquisitions Group LLC no later than
Sept. 9, 2015, and the Reorganized Debtor also will make an
initial distribution to LAG and other unsecured creditors of HRAF,
if any, within 30 days after the Effective Date.  Other secured
creditors (primarily real estate taxing authorities) will be paid
in full either (a) at the closing of the sales of the Reorganized
Debtor's real property assets, or (b) on the first Interim
Distribution Date following the closing of a sale of property upon
which they hold a lien.

Holders of Class 2 Allowed General Unsecured Claims as against
HRAF will be paid the full amount of their claim as of the
Petition Date, but will not be paid post-petition interest on
their Claims.

Holders of Class 23 Allowed General Unsecured Claims as against
Harbor will be paid the full amount of their claim as of the
Petition Date to the extent the Reorganized Debtor has sufficient
cash remaining after distributions to the holders of Secured
Claims and Priority Claims.  The holders of Allowed Class 23
Claims will not be paid post-petition interest on their Claims.

INDIANTOWN COGENERATION: Fitch Withdraws BB Rating on $389MM Debt
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has withdrawn the 'BB' ratings on $389.4 million of
outstanding debt as follows:

Indiantown Cogeneration L.P. (ICLP) and Indiantown Cogeneration
Funding Corp (as co-issuers):

  -- $264.4 million taxable first mortgage bonds due 2020.

Martin County Industrial Development Authority:

  -- $125 million tax-exempt facility revenue bonds due 2025.

Fitch has withdrawn the ratings due to a decision by the project
sponsor, Energy Investors Funds (EIF), to stop participating in
the rating process.  Fitch will no longer have sufficient
information to maintain the ratings going forward, and will no
longer provide ratings or analytical coverage for ICLP.

ICLP is a 330 megawatt pulverized coal-fired cogeneration facility
located in Martin County, Florida.  ICLP supplies energy and
capacity to Florida Power and Light Co. (Issuer Default Rating of

1995.

ICLP is 100% indirectly owned by the private equity firm, EIF.  In
September 2007, funds managed by EIF acquired an 80% equity
interest in ICLP, and in June 2011 acquired the remaining 20%
interest from Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. and its wholly owned
subsidiary Cogentrix, Inc.

                         About Jameson Inn

Founded in 1987, Jameson is a chain of 103 small, budget hotels
operating under the Jameson brand in the Southeast and Midwest.
The Jameson properties are operated under the names Jameson Inn
and Signature Inn.  The hotels are based in Smyrna, Georgia.

The chain was taken private in a 2006 buyout by JER Partners, a
unit of real-estate investor J.E. Robert Cos.  JER then put
$330 million of debt on the chain to finance the buyout.  At the
top of the list is a $175 million mortgage loan with Wells Fargo
Bank NA serving as special servicer.  There are four tranches of
mezzanine loans, each for $40 million.  The collateral for each of
the Mezz Loans is the equity interest in the entity or entities
immediately below the borrower of each Mezz Loan.  All of the
mezzanine loans matured in August.

JER/Jameson NC Properties LP and JER/Jameson Properties LLC are
borrowers under the loan with Wells Fargo.  The mortgage loan is
secured by mortgages on hotel properties.  The first set of
foreclosure sales were set for Nov. 1, 2011.  The Mortgage
Borrowers have not sought bankruptcy protection.

Colony Capital affiliates, CDCF JIH Funding LLC and ColFin JIH
Funding LLC, hold the first and second mezzanine loans.  The First
Mezz Loan is secured by a pledge of JER/Jameson Mezz Borrower I
LLC's 100% interest in the Mortgage Borrowers.

Prior to the maturity default, the Colony JIH Lenders purchased
the Second Mezz Loan from a previous holder.  The Second Mezz Loan
is secured by a pledge of JER/Jameson Mezz Borrower II's 100%
membership interest in the First Mezz Borrower.

Gramercy Warehouse Funding I LLC and Gramercy Loan Services LLC
hold a controlling participation interest in the Third Mezz and
Fourth Mezz Loans.  JER Investors Trust Inc. holds the remaining
participation interests in the Third Mezz and Fourth Mezz Loans.
JER/Jameson Holdco LLC, an affiliate of the Mortgage Borrowers,
owns the 100% equity interest in the Fourth Mezz Borrower.
Gramercy took over its mezzanine borrower in August.

JER/Jameson Mezz Borrower II LLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 11-13338) on Oct. 18, 2011, to prevent
foreclosure by Colony.  The Chapter 11 filing had the effect of
preventing Colony from wiping out Gramercy's interest.

Seven days later, JER/Jameson Mezz Borrower I LLC filed for
bankruptcy (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 11-13392) on Oct. 25, 2011.

Judge Mary F. Walrath presides over the case.  Laura Davis Jones,
Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, serves as counsel to
both Debtors.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC, serves as its
noticing, claims and balloting agent, and Houlihan Lokey
Howard & Zukin Capital Inc. serves as its investment banker.

Each of the Debtors estimated $100 million to $500 million in
assets and $10 million to $50 million in debts.  The petitions
were signed by James L. Gregory, vice president.

Colony specializes in real estate and has roughly $34 billion of
assets under management.  Colony is represented in the case by

KBK OPERATIONS: To Keep Arby's Outlet Closed as Talks Continue
--------------------------------------------------------------
Cathy Jett at fredericksburg.com reported that KBK Operations LLC
has said negotiations regarding its Arby's restaurants are
continuing, and no decision about reopening will be made until
talks have concluded.  KBK temporarily closed an Arby's outlet
near Dahlgren in Maryland in December.

KBK is facing a lawsuit from Arby's Restaurant Group Inc. filed
Dec. 16 with the U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, Md.  The
lawsuit alleges the franchisor had informed KBK on Sept. 29 that
KBK had defaulted under Arby's franchise agreements because it had
failed to pay nearly $472,640 in royalties and dues for its 10
locations.  Those outlets employ 160 people.

The report relates KBK blamed its woes on the economy.  It filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Oct. 10, 2011, the deadline for
payment to Arby's Restaurant Group.  The franchisor, in a letter
sent to KBK president and CEO Wade Kingsley, has said that if the
money was not paid by then Arby's had the right to terminate the
franchise agreements and take legal action.  It notified Mr.
Kingsley on Oct. 11 that the agreement was terminated.

In its lawsuit, the franchisor seeks a temporary restraining order
against KBK for such things as breach of contract and trademark

KERZNER INT'L: Brookfield Asset Ends Deal to Take Over Resort
-------------------------------------------------------------
Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that Brookfield Asset
Management Inc. has canceled a deal to take control of the massive
Atlantis resort in the Bahamas and two other resorts from Kerzner
International Holdings Ltd. after other creditors obtained a court
ruling delaying the deal.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 9, 2011, Dow
Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that five years after
resort operator Kerzner International Holdings Ltd. was taken
private in a $4 billion buyout by a group of big-name investors --
including Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s Whitehall funds and Colony
Capital LLC -- the deal has turned into a bad bet.

Kerzner International is the owner of several luxury getaways.
The Atlantis resort in the Bahamas, Kerzner's flagship property,
is one of the most popular resorts in North America.


KLN STEEL: Wins Interim Court Order to Use Cash
-----------------------------------------------
Patrick Danner at My San Antonio reports that KLN Steel Products
Co. LLC and its lender have not been able to reach a final
agreement that would allow the San Antonio furniture maker to use
its cash to pay expenses during its reorganization.

According to the report, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Craig Gargotta has
issued a third interim order that allows KLN to use its cash to
operate for another month.  But Judge Gargotta vowed to resolve
the issue himself if KLN and lender Banco Popular North America
can't settle their differences by the next court hearing, Feb. 13,
2012.

The report says KLN has indicated in court documents that without
access to the cash, which Banco Popular holds liens on, the
company would have to shut down.  KLN and two sister companies
filed for Chapter 11 in November after Banco Popular, which is
owed more than $27 million, refused to fund payroll.

The report relates that, during a court hearing last week, KLN
lawyer Patricia Tomasco said the company has built up $3 million
since the bankruptcy filing.  "The debtor is really sitting on a
lot of cash," Ms. Tomasco said.  As a result, she said, KLN agreed
to pay Banco Popular $1 million.

The report says Ron Satija, a lawyer for the unsecured creditors'
committee, expressed concerns about whether the $1 million was
"prudent and in the interest of the unsecured creditors."  But the
payment was approved by Ms. Gargotta as part of the interim order
allowing KLN to continue using cash collateral.

The report notes that Mr. Satija told the judge that the unsecured
creditors' committee is doing its own investigation of KLN.  He
noted that KLN has indicated in financials that it has $5.6
million in uncollected accounts receivables.

The report says Ms. Tomasco said KLN has been filing lawsuits to
collect money still owed to the company.  KLN also is making sure
that customers don't cancel orders

On Dec. 15, 2011, U.S. Chief Bankruptcy Judge Ronald B. King
confirmed La Villita Motor Inns, J.V.'s Second Amended Plan of
Reorganization, as submitted Dec. 13, 2011.  The Court had
approved the Disclosure Statement for the First Amended Plan on
Nov. 18, 2011.

The Plan provides for the implementation of a global settlement
among the Debtor, the Lender and the Guarantor providing for,
among other things, the restructuring of the obligations owing to
the Lender pursuant to the Lender Loan Documents (including the
Loan Modification Agreement, Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure,
Guaranty, Escrow Agreement, Closing Instruction Letter and
Subordination Agreement provided in the Plan Supplement) and the
incurrence of the Subordinated Loan (with Subordinated Creditor
Westgrove Properties Ltd.) in order to fund the obligations under
the Plan.

                      Classification Summary

The Plan segregates the various Claims against the Debtor and
Interests in the Debtor into 5 Classes:

   Class 1. Priority Secured Tax Claims
   Class 2. Lender Secured Claim
   Class 3. General Unsecured Claims
   Class 4. Insider Claims
   Class 5. Equity Interests

Classes 2, 3 and 4 are impaired.  Classes 1 and 5 are unimpaired.

On or before the Effective Date, the Fixed Rate Note to the Lender
will be amended and restated pursuant to the Loan Modification
Agreement which provides for, among other things, the bifurcation
of the loans under the Fixed Rate Note into two loan tranches --
the Tranche A Loan in the principal amount of $7,182,269,
following application of the Closing Date Principal Payment and
the Tranche B Loan in the principal amount of $1,499,976.

The Tranche A Loan will be paid $48,629 monthly up to and
including the month immediately preceding the Jan. 1, 2015

will be paid in accordance with the terms of the Note.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, all outstanding principal, interest
and other amounts under the Tranche A Loan will be due and payable
on the Maturity Date.

The outstanding principal balance of the Tranche B Loan, interest
and all other amounts due under the Tranchr B Loan will be due and
payable on the Maturity Date.

In the event all outstanding amounts under the Tranche A Loan are
paid in full on or before the Maturity Date, then the outstanding
amounts under the Tranche B Loan will be deemed discharged and
released.

General Unsecured Claims will be paid in full, with simple
interest of 7.5% p.a., over a period of three years from the
Effective Date.

Class 4 Insider Claims, constituted by accrued management fees in
the amount of $3,014,088, will only be paid after payment in full
of the Class 2 Lender Claim and Class 3 General Unsecured Claims
and will be specifically subordinated to payment in full of the
obligations owed to Lender under the Loan Modification Agreement.

Equity Interests will retain their Equity Interests in the Debtor
as they existed on the Petition Date.

LEE ENTERPRISES: Operating Revenue Drops 3.9% to $199.6MM in Q1
---------------------------------------------------------------
Lee Enterprises, Incorporated, reported its first fiscal quarter
ended Dec. 25, 2011 earnings totaled 32 cents per diluted common
share, compared with 42 cents a year ago.  Excluding refinancing
costs and other unusual matters, adjusted earnings per diluted
common share were 38 cents, compared with 32 cents a year ago.

Mary Junck, chairman and chief executive officer, said:
"Advertising sales in the quarter continued largely in line with
recent trends and reflected our expectations, given the still-
uneven economy.  Comparisons with a year ago should take into
account that our December 2010 quarter was our strongest of the
year, with revenue then down only 1.0% to prior.  We continue to
expect revenue trends to improve slowly in 2012, as we press
forward with more digital and print initiatives.  Meanwhile, we
expect to complete our Chapter 11 refinancing process within a few
weeks. Our refinancing agreements, along with our continued strong
cash flow, will provide a solid financial footing as we continue
reshaping Lee for future growth."

Operating revenue for the quarter totaled $199.6 million, a
decline of 3.9% compared with a year ago.  Combined print and
digital advertising revenue decreased 6.1% to $142.5 million, with
retail advertising down 5.4%, classified down 9.7% and national up
1.4%.  Combined print and digital classified employment revenue
decreased 0.3%, while automotive decreased 4.1%, real estate
decreased 17.9% and other classified decreased 15.2%.  Digital
advertising revenue on a stand-alone basis increased 10.4% to
$16.2 million.  Print revenue on a stand-alone basis decreased
7.9%.

MARCO INC: Grand Teton Mall Can't Terminate License Deal
--------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Peter J. McNiff denied the request of landlord
Grand Teton Mall LLC for relief from the automatic stay in the
bankruptcy case of retailer Marco Inc., noting that the payments
Grand Teton accepted for monthly licensing fee constituted
adequate protection payments that Grand Teton sought.  "Based on
the receipt and acceptance of the adequate protection payments,
Grand Teton has not carried its burden establishing cause for
relief of the automatic stay," Judge McNiff said.

Marco Inc. operates retail clothing stores under the name of
"DeMarcos."  DeMarcos has been in the Grand Teton Mall, Idaho
Falls, Idaho since 1984.  On Feb. 23, 2011, Marco entered into a
License Agreement with Grand Teton which provided Marco to
continue to operate DeMarcos in the Mall.  However, as the new
location was not ready for occupancy, DeMarcos was moved to a
temporary location with the intent that it would move into its
current location in April 2011.  Due to delays in construction,
DeMarcos was delayed in completing its move until mid-April.
During that time, it continued to operate from its temporary
location in the mall.

A copy of Judge McNiff's Jan. 17, 2012 memorandum opinion is
available at http://is.gd/33ngsJfrom Leagle.com.

METROGAS SA: U.S. Appeals Court Flips $185MM Arbitration Award
--------------------------------------------------------------
Sindhu Sundar at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on Tuesday reversed an
arbitration award of over $185 million to BG Group PLC in its
dispute with Argentina over regulatory measures it enforced during
its 2002 economic crisis that allegedly affected BG Group's
investment in now-bankrupt Argentine gas distributor MetroGas SA.

A three-judge panel agreed with Argentina's argument that the
arbitration panel had overstepped its authority by taking on the
dispute, violating a bilateral investment treaty between the
parties, according to Law360.

                          About MetroGas

Buenos Aires, Argentina-based MetroGAS S.A., a gas distribution
company, was incorporated on Nov. 24, 1992, and began operations
on Dec. 29, 1992, when the privatization of Gas del Estado S.E.
("GdE") (an Argentine Government-owned enterprise) was completed.
Through Executive Decree No. 2,459/92 dated Dec. 21, 1992, the
Argentine Government granted MetroGAS an exclusive license to
provide the public service of natural gas distribution in the area
of the Federal Capital and southern and eastern Greater Buenos
Aires, by operating the assets allocated to the Company by GdE for
a 35-year period from the Takeover Date (Dec. 28, 1992).  This
period can be extended for an additional 10 year period under
certain conditions.

MetroGAS' controlling shareholder is Gas Argentino S.A., who holds
70% of the Common Stock of the Company.  The 20%, which was
originally owned by the National Government, was offered in public
offering and the remaining 10% is under the Employee Stock
Ownership Plan ("Programa de Propiedad Participada" or "PPP").

The suspension of the original regime for tariff adjustments and
the inability to generate sufficient cash flows to pay its
financial debt obligations led the Company to file a petition for
a voluntary reorganization proceeding (concurso preventivo) in an
Argentine court on June 17, 2010.

On July 12, 2011, the Company presented a Reorganization Proposal
to all unsecured creditors with proved and admissible claims.  The
offer consists of the payment of the unsecured claims, either
proved or admissible, by means of the delivery, in exchange for
and payment of such credits, of negotiable obligations payable in
14 years, in American Dollars, for 45%, measured in American
Dollars, of the unsecured claims verified or declared admissible
-- Negotiable Obligations.

The Negotiable Obligations will be amortized 1% per year from year
3 to, and including, year 13, and the remaining balance (89%) will
be amortized at the maturity of the Negotiable Obligations, in
year 14.  The Negotiable Obligations will accrue interest at an
annual fixed rate of 4% and will be issued in two series under
substantially the same terms and conditions.  Both will be offered
in public bids.  One of the series will be offered in exchange to
those creditors with unsecured claims who hold existing negotiable
obligations with public offer, and the other series will be
offered to the other unsecured creditors who are not bondholders.

On Oct. 3, 2011, commercial creditor consents to MetroGAS' offer
were presented before the reorganization procedure court, in such
a number that represents the absolute majority of the verified
creditors.


MGM RESORTS: Issues $850 Million 8.625% Senior Notes Due 2019
-------------------------------------------------------------
MGM Resorts International, on Jan. 17, 2012, issued $850 million
in aggregate principal amount of its 8.625% Senior Notes due 2019
under an indenture dated as of Jan. 17, 2012, among the Company,
the guarantors named therein and U.S. Bank National Association,
as trustee.  The Notes were sold in the United States only to
accredited investors pursuant to an exemption from the Securities
Act of 1933, as amended, and subsequently resold to qualified
institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities
Act and to non-U.S. persons in accordance with Regulation S under
the Securities Act.  The Notes have not been registered under the
Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States
absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration
requirements.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering, or
approximately $836.1 million, to repay a portion of its
indebtedness, which may include indebtedness under its senior
credit facility or outstanding debt securities.

The Notes will mature on Feb. 1, 2019.  The Company will pay
interest on the Notes on February 1 and August 1 of each year,
commencing on Aug. 1, 2012.  Interest on the Notes will accrue at
a rate of 8.625% per annum and be payable in cash.

The Notes are guaranteed, jointly and severally, on a senior basis
by the Company's subsidiaries, other than its excluded
subsidiaries and its Illinois subsidiary, Nevada Landing
Partnership, unless and until the Company obtains Illinois gaming
approval.  The guarantors include all subsidiaries that guarantee
the Company's senior credit facility and its existing notes,
except for Nevada Landing Partnership, unless and until the
Company obtains Illinois gaming approval and, with respect to its
credit facility, MGM Grand Detroit, LLC.

The Company may redeem all or part of the Notes at a redemption
price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Notes plus an
applicable make whole premium and accrued and unpaid interest.

The Indenture contains customary covenants that will limit the
Company's ability and, in certain instances, the ability of the
Company's subsidiaries to incur liens on assets to secure debt,
enter into certain sale and leaseback transactions, and merge or
consolidate with another company or sell all or substantially all
assets.

The Indenture provides for customary events of default, including,
without limitation, (i) payment defaults, (ii) covenant defaults,
(iii) cross-defaults to certain other indebtedness in excess of
specified amounts, (iv) certain events of bankruptcy and
insolvency or (v) judgment defaults in excess of specified
amounts.

In connection with the closing, a registration rights agreement
was entered into on Jan. 17, 2012, between the Company, the
subsidiary guarantors, Barclays Capital Inc. and the initial
purchasers named therein.

                         About MGM Resorts

http://www.mgmresorts.com/-- has significant holdings in gaming,
hospitality and entertainment, owns and operates 15 properties
located in Nevada, Mississippi and Michigan, and has 50%
investments in four other properties in Nevada, Illinois and
Macau.

The Company reported net income of $3.25 billion on $5.55 billion
of revenue for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2011, compared with
a net loss of $1.29 billion on $4.58 billion of revenue for the
same period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2011, showed $27.85
billion in total assets, $17.91 billion in total liabilities and
$9.94 billion in total stockholders' equity.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

Any default under the senior credit facility or the indentures
governing the Company's other debt could adversely affect its
growth, its financial condition, its results of operations and its
ability to make payments on its debt, and could force the Company
to seek protection under the bankruptcy laws.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 14, 2011, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services raised its corporate credit rating on MGM Resorts
International to 'B-' from 'CCC+'.   "The rating upgrade reflects
MGM's solid performance thus far in 2011, and our expectation that
MGM will continue benefitting from improving performance trends on
the Las Vegas Strip, particularly on the lodging side of the
business," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Ben Bubeck.  "MGM
maintains weak credit measures, including operating lease-adjusted
debt to wholly owned EBITDA of over 11x and EBITDA coverage of
interest of just 1.0x. Still, we believe recent strong performance
trends are reducing refinancing risk in the company's
intermediate- term debt maturities, and expect credit measures to
continue to gradually improve modestly in 2012."

In the Nov. 21, 2011, edition of the TCR, Moody's Investors
Service upgraded MGM Resorts International's Corporate Family and
Probability of Default ratings to B2, its senior secured rating to
Ba2, and its senior unsecured notes to B3. MGM has an SGL-3
Speculative Grade.  The B2 rating reflects Moody's view that
continued earnings improvement at MGM's 51% owned Macau joint
venture increases the likelihood of a dividend distribution that
would help improve the company's liquidity profile. The B2
Corporate Family Rating also reflects Moody's view that positive
lodging trends in Las Vegas will continue through 2012 and will
help improve MGM's leverage and coverage metrics modestly.

accommodations for the benefit of its members.  MGV is a nonprofit
mutual benefit corporation whose members are timeshare owners, and

PEAK BROADCASTING: Commences Prepack Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
----------------------------------------------------------
PEAK Broadcasting filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware armed with
a prepackaged plan of reorganization.

According to Allaccess.com, the Company reached an agreement with
the majority of its lenders on a prepackaged plan that
significantly reduces its outstanding debt.  The plan provides for
payments to the Company's employees, vendors and other unsecured
creditors, and for the business to continue in the ordinary course
with no disruption.

"PEAK's plan of reorganization is the result of a cooperative
effort involving PEAK's management and is supported by the
majority of PEAK's lenders.  Most important, the restructuring is
not expected to impact the day-to-day operations of our radio
stations," the report quotes the Company's CEO Todd Lawley as
saying.  "Operationally, PEAK has improved its position in the
markets it serves during one of the most difficult periods in
radio broadcasting history. I am confident that PEAK will emerge
from the restructuring with a stronger financial foundation which
complements our market-leading radio positions and allows us to
continue to provide premier radio programming in the communities
we serve together with the uninterrupted support of our customers,
employees, and vendors.

Radio-info.com reports that the result of the "pre-packaged" plan
should be a fairly speedy emergence from Chapter 11.  Radio-info
says the filing refers to a "pre-petition first lien credit
agreement" signed in 2007, which provided for an initial senior
secured Term Loan A of $68.5 million, a revolving credit facility
of $7 million and a senior secured multi-draw loan facility of $12
million.  The pre-petition second lien credit agreement signed in
August 2009 was for a $15 million Term B loan and a "delayed draw
term loan facility" of $3 million.

                      Feb. 23 Plan Hearing

Dow Jones' DBR Small Cap reports that Judge Peter Walsh set a
hearing to confirm the Peak Broadcasting's Chapter 11 plan for
Feb. 23 and approved all of the company's first-day motions
Thursday, according to a company representative, overruling
objections filed by Rabobank International, the only lender to
vote against its prepackaged Chapter 11 plan.

                      About PEAK Broadcasting

petition, Peak Broadcasting estimated $50 million to $100 million
in assets and debts.  The petition was signed by Todd Lawley, CEO

PETRA FUND: Plan Confirmation Hearing scheduled for Feb. 3
----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
will convene a hearing on Feb. 3, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. to consider
confirmation of Petra Fund Reit Corp., et al.'s Plan of
Reorganization dated as of Dec. 19, 2011.

According to the Debtors, during their Chapter 11 cases, they
continued to engage in negotiations with its secured creditors,
the Royal Bank of Scotland plc and J.P. Morgan Securities, Inc.,
to finalize a proposed plan.  While it was originally contemplated
that the transactions proposed in the Plan Support Agreement would
be embodied in the Debtors' Plan, the Debtors were unable to
obtain consent to such a plan from both of its secured creditors.

Accordingly, the Debtors modified its proposed restructuring that
will be deemed satisfactory to both JPM and RBS and the modified
version of the Debtor's proposed restructuring is now embodied in
the Plan.  Importantly, the Debtors and its secured creditors came
to the realization that for a restructuring to work, it would not
be possible to guarantee that REIT would retain its status as a
qualified real estate investment trust for federal tax purposes.
As a result, the Debtors' proposed restructuring of REIT in the
Plan is not dependent on REIT retaining such tax status.

The Plan provides for the dissolution of Offshore, sale of the
Settlement Payments, sale of the Equity Interests and
reorganization of REIT and the treatment of each holder of a Claim
against, or Equity Interests in, the Debtors.  Such treatment
includes the payment in full of all Administrative Claims, unless
otherwise agreed to; with respect to RBS, the deemed delivery of
the Class F Bonds and Class G Bonds (to the extent the Class F
Bonds and Class G Bonds were not previously foreclosed upon by
RBS), the issuance of a new debt instrument that will continue to
be secured by a first-priority Lien on the RBS REIT Collateral and
the allowance of an unsecured deficiency claim; with respect to
JPM, the issuance of a new debt instrument that will continue to
be secured by a first-priority Lien on the JPM REIT Collateral;
the distribution to holders of General Unsecured Claims of a Pro
Rata Share of the Distributable Assets, if there are any; and
cancellation of all existing Equity Interests.

With respect to the sales transactions contemplated in the Plan,
the Debtors will be accepting bids for the Settlement Payments and
Equity Interests of REIT will be provided to all creditors and
holders of Equity Interests of the Debtors.

                        About Petra Fund

Petra Fund REIT Corp. and its affiliates are in the business of
originating, investing in, structuring and trading loans secured
by commercial real-estate.  Petra Offshore Fund LP is the parent.

Petra Fund and Petra Offshore sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 10-15500) on Oct. 20, 2010, and are
represented by Shaya M. Berger, Esq., and Brian E. Goldberg, Esq.,
at Dickstein Shapiro, LLP.  At the time of the filing, each of the
Debtor estimated its assets at less than $10 million and its debts
at more than $100 million.

Petra Fund blamed its Chapter 11 filing on the extraordinary and
unprecedented collapse of the credit and commercial real estate
markets, which caused a mark-to-market value of its assets to
plummet.


RAKHRA MUSHROOM: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
-----------------------------------------------------------
Ruth Heide at Valley Courier reports that Rakhra Mushroom Farm
Corporation filed on Jan. 14, 2012, for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in
the Bankruptcy Court in Denver.

General Manager Michael Smith said the farm is closing.  According
to the report, Mr. Smith said that owners are viewing the
bankruptcy filing as an opportunity to catch up on debts and
continue producing mushrooms for customers and providing jobs for
local residents.  "The majority of our team of employees will
remain intact and will continue to provide the highest quality
products that Rakhra is known for," Mr. Smith stated.

The report relates Mr. Smith said Rakhra "is working aggressively
toward the successful completion of a restructuring plan that will
be completed through a proceeding under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code.  The Chapter 11 restructuring will allow Rakhra
to continue its operations as a major employer and supplier of
high-quality mushrooms in the San Luis Valley."

The report says Mr. Smith explained that Rakhra's bankruptcy
petition "means every debt we had as of [Jan. 12, 2012] gets put
aside temporarily."  Mr. Smith said the bankruptcy filing would
allow Rakhra to operate on a cash basis with vendors who are
willing to continue working with the farm in order to generate
enough revenue to pay back the debt owed.

Rakhra Mushroom Farm Corporation -- http://www.rakhramushroom.com/
-- is a producer-marketer of fresh mushrooms.  Its Web site says
the Company has been a going concern since the early 1980's.

SHOREBANK CORP: Court Sets Feb. 27 as Claims Bar Date
-----------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court set Feb. 27, 2012, at 5:00 PM (prevailing
Central Time), as the deadline for creditors to file proofs of
claim in The ShoreBank Corporation's Chapter 11 cases.
Governmental units have until July 11, 2012, to file proofs of
claim.

At the onset of the case, the Debtors asked the Court to establish
Claims Bar Dates, stating that they plan to administer the Chapter
11 cases in an expedited and streamlined manner, because they have
limited assets available to distribute to potential holders of
claims and interests in the cases.  The Debtors said their estates
will benefit from a clear procedure to promptly and accurately
identify the full nature, extent, and scope of all claims that may
be asserted against their estates.

SOLYNDRA LLC: Workers Object to $500,000 Bonus Plan
---------------------------------------------------
Maria Chutchian at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a class of
former Solyndra LLC employees on Monday launched an objection to
the company's $500,000 incentive plan that will award bonuses to
21 current employees, arguing the company has not proven the plan
would be a sound business decision.

Solyndra sought approval of the bonus plan to a Delaware
bankruptcy court earlier this month, claiming the bonuses were a
maneuver to keep its current employees working toward achieving
various performance goals.

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.


SOLYNDRA LLC: Lease Decision Period Extended Until April 2
----------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Mary F. Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware extended until April 2, 2012, the time with
which Solyndra LLC, et al., may assume or reject nonresidential
real property leases.

The Court also directed the Debtors that under each lease with an
objecting landlord, the Debtor will timely perform its obligations
to pay monthly installments of base rent and of additional rent
under the lease and its other obligations under the lease until
the lease is assumed or rejected, and the extension is without
prejudice to an objecting landlord's seeking by motion to compel
the earlier assumption or rejection of its lease if the Debtor
fails to pay the monthly installments of base rent or of
undisputed additional rent when due and payable.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Dec. 15, 2011, the
Debtors related that it has engaged its efforts to effectuate a
sale of its business to a turnkey buyer who will acquire all or
substantially all of the assets used in the Debtors' business.
The Debtors believed that a a turnkey sale will provide the best
chance for the Debtors to maximize the value of its assets and to
reemploy certain of the employees who were terminated prior to the
commencement of the cases.  While no acceptable turnkey sale bid
was received by the bid deadline, parties continue to express
interest in acquiring Solyndra's assets on a turnkey basis.

Accordingly, Solyndra, in consultation with its key creditor
constituencies, determined that an extension of the date and
deadlines for the turnkey sale hearing was necessary and
appropriate.

Pursuant to the continued sale hearing notice, the Debtors
continued (i) the bid deadline to Jan. 17, 2012, at 4:00 p.m.
(prevailing Pacific Time); (ii) the auction date for the turnkey
sale to Jan. 19, 2012, at 10:00 a.m.; (iii) the objection deadline
to the turnkey sale motion to Jan. 20, at 12:00 p.m.; (iv) the
turnkey sale hearing to Jan. 23, at 1:30 a.m.

SOMERSET PROPERTIES: Final Hearing Today on Use of Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------------
United States Bankruptcy Judge Stephani W. Humrickhouse, in a
thirteenth interim consent order, authorized Somerset Properties
SPE, LLC, to use its rents, including the Held Funds, which
lenders contend are their cash collateral, to make payment of its
ordinary and necessary operating expenses including utilities,
payroll, and maintenance.

CSFB 2001-CP4 Bland Road, LLC, and CSFB 2001-CP4 Falls of Neuse,
LLC, claim to be the current holders of loans to Somerset, each in
the original principal amount of $15,500,000, and further claim
that the loans are secured by liens on all of Somerset's assets.

The Debtor may use cash collateral totaling $664,092 for
December 2011, unless otherwise prohibited by this Order, for the
purposes and subject to the limits as set forth in the budget for
such period, subject to a 10% line item variance.

The Debtor's use of Cash Collateral will expire or terminate on
the earliest of: (i) the date the Debtor ceases operations of its
business; (ii) the non-compliance or default of the Debtor with
any terms and provisions of this Order; or (iii) another order
concerning cash collateral is entered, or (iv) dismissal or
conversion of this chapter 11 case to Chapter 7.

The Debtor is not authorized to use cash collateral for legal fees
and expenses, management fees, or other professional fees of any
kind, absent court approval.

To the extent of cash collateral used by the Debtor, the lenders
are granted liens in all of the Debtor's post-petition leases,
rents, royalties, issues, profits, revenue, income, deposits,
securities, and other benefits of the Properties to the same
extent, priority, and perfection as they have in such collateral
pre-petition.

The lenders are authorized and directed to continue receiving in
the Lockbox accounts at U.S. Bank all post-petition payments by
tenants of the Properties as they did pre-petition; provided that
all such payments will be wired monthly by U.S. Bank to the DIP
account and Debtor will make adequate protection payments to
Lenders from the DIP account, all in accordance with the terms of
the Oct. 13, 2011 Consent Order.  Thus far, U.S. Bank has complied
with its obligation under the Consent Order to wire funds from the
Lockbox accounts to the DIP Account, and the Debtor has complied
with its obligation under the Consent Order to make adequate
protection payments to the lenders.

Unless a further consent order is entered, a final hearing will be
held on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2012, at 11:00 A.M. in Raleigh, North
Carolina.

SONYA PORRETTO: Judge Converts Case to Chapter 7 Proceeding
-----------------------------------------------------------
Harvey Rice at Houston Chronicle reports that a federal bankruptcy
judge in December 2011 converted Sonya Porretto's bankruptcy case
from Chapter 11 to Chapter 7, allowing Porretto Beach to be sold
to pay creditors.  According to the report, Ms. Porretto ran out
of money to pay her lawyer and is representing herself as she
struggles to save a property that has been held by her family for
50 years.

The report says Ms. Porretto plead before the court to reconsider,
She gave her reasons for failing to file a plan of reorganization
or attend a key hearing.

The report notes Ms. Porretto listed the value of Porretto Beach
at $10 million, but Randy Williams, the Chapter 7 trustee
appointed to oversee the sale, says he is unsure of the true
value.

The report adds that V.J. Tramonte, owner of Joe Tramonte Realty
in Galveston, said Mr. Williams has asked his advice and will meet
with him to discuss the sale.  Selling the property may be
difficult because of the lawsuit and uncertainty about several
issues, including whether regulations will allow construction on
the beach in front of the seawall.


SOVRAN LLC: Will Seek Plan Confirmation at March 5 Hearing
----------------------------------------------------------
Sovran, LLC, has filed a modified Disclosure Statement explaining
its proposed Plan of Reorganization.

The hearing to approve the Plan currently set for March 5, 2012,
at 9:00 a.m.

According to the Disclosure Statement, the Debtor will continue to
market the property and obtain sales of all or any part of the
property.  The liens securing claims will be modified in
accordance with the Bankruptcy Code's provisions to permit sales
of partial parcels, with deed release provisions specifying the
amount to be paid to the holders of secured claims based on a
certain price per square foot.

According to the Debtor's calculations, at the current market
prices, the sale of approximately 35% of the property will retire
the entire amount of secured claims.  In the unlikely event that
no sale has taken place by the sixth anniversary of the Plan's
confirmation date, then 50 acres of property will be transferred
to the holder of the first position deed of trust, subject to the
tax claims of Lewis County.  The value of that portion of the
property, as determined by the Bankruptcy Court, will be applied
to interest and costs and then to the principal of the claim.
At each subsequent six month anniversary a similar transfer will
occur if there are no intervening sales.

The holders of Class 3 allowed unsecured claims will receive pro
rata distributions from the Unsecured Creditor's Fund.

The members in the Debtor will retain their membership interest,
but no distributions will be made to any members until all
creditors have been paid in full.

Payments will be made at various times after confirmation.  The
Debtor relates that most recent appraisal values the property at
over $18,000,000, which indicates that there is an equity cushion
protecting the secured creditors of over $10,000,000.  The deed
release calculations were based on fully retiring the outstanding
secured debt, including interest after the sale of approximately
7 million square feet of property.  At all points during the sell
out process all the secured creditors will be adequately protected
by the substantial equity cushion in the property, which Benaroya
and Timberland Bank dispute.

A copy of the Disclosure Statement dated Dec. 20, 2011, is
available for free at http://bankrupt.com/misc/sovranllc.doc58.pdf

                        Lender's Objections

As reported in the TCR on Jan. 12, 2012, first-position secured
lender Benaroya and second-position secured lender Timberland Bank
objected to the approval of the disclosure statement filed in
Sovran LLC's Chapter 11 case, citing:

   A. Value of Raw Land is Degraded by Plan.

   Benaroya and Timberland Bank object to the statements that the
value of the raw land is greater than the total indebtedness, that
there is an equity cushion and adequate protection, and that the
sale of the raw land into smaller parcels will increase the value
of the raw land assembled.  Further, Benaroya is of the opinion
that the raw land will decrease in value under the proposed plan.

   B. Condition and Performance of Debtor in Chapter 11
Proceedings.

   Benaroya and Timberland Bank submit that all evidence of
offers, letters of intent, and loan commitments, by whom, the
price or commitment amount, and when, for the subject raw land for
the past two years should be identified.  Further, any post-
petition obligations should be identified by the name of the
creditor (including Lewis County property taxes), when the
obligation was incurred, the amount of the obligation if monetary
and the nature of the obligation if not monetary, and whether each
obligation has been satisfied or not and by whom.  The Debtor
should also identify whether liability and property insurance is
in place as primary or additional insureds, or both, the nature of
the insurance, the insurers, the policy limits of each policy and
deductibles, and whether the premiums have been paid and by whom.

   C. Debtors' Insiders.

   Non-insiders, who were not present at the Aug. 11, 2011
Debtor's examination, need to know that 99% of the scheduled
unsecured claims are held by insiders.  A description of the
business, familial, and lending relationship with each scheduled
unsecured creditor, except for the Bader Martin accounting firm
and the DeTray Family Partnership, needs to be disclosed so that
the non-insider voters understand that the proposed plan is for
the benefit of the equity-interest holders who plan to retain
their interest and who are not supplying new value during the life
of the proposed plan.

   D. Miscellaneous Objections.

   For the purposes of voting, Benaroya and Timberland Bank should
each receive a ballot for Class 2 voting and a ballot for Class 3
voting should the Court find that one or both are partially
secured claimants.  Also, much of the remaining portions of the
proposed disclosure statement and related plan were hastily filed
in response to Benaroya's motion for relief from stay on the
ground that this bankruptcy case was a bad-faith filing.  Debtor's
counsel should revise its proposed disclosure statement to
incorporate the necessary adequate information and to correct the
many typographical errors.

Pre-bankruptcy, Swartville executed a promissory note in favor of
TD Bank for $1,615,000.  The note is guaranteed by the debtor's
three members, Joel Tomaselli, Glenn Garrett, and Garry Silivanch,
and is secured by 90 acres of the debtor's real property in Castle
Hayne, North Carolina.  The debtor intended to sell the Property
after preparing it for development, but encountered financial
troubles upon the recent decline in the real estate market and did
not make improvements to the property.  As a result, the debtor
defaulted on the note and TD Bank made a written demand on the
debtor for payment on Oct. 12, 2011.

Rather than initiating a lawsuit against the debtor for collection
of the note or a foreclosure proceeding against the Property, TD
Bank filed a lawsuit against the guarantors in New Hanover County
Superior Court on Oct. 18, 2011.  Soon after, the debtor filed for
bankruptcy.

The debtor also owns 3.29 acres of other real property in Castle
Hayne, which is unencumbered and is valued at $133,351.20 on the
debtor's Schedule A.  This second parcel is not adjacent to the
disputed Property, but is located nearby.  The debtor's Schedule F
lists both insider and non-insider non-priority unsecured
creditors with claims totaling $811,404.  All three guarantors are
listed on Schedule F as the holders of non-priority, unsecured
claims.

The debtor filed its plan of reorganization on Nov. 17, 2011, and
proposes to surrender the disputed Property to TD Bank in
satisfaction of the debt under the note, which had a balance of
$1,624,530 as of the petition date.  Should the court determine
that the value of the disputed Property is less than the amount of
TD Bank's claim, the plan provides that the bank may seek payment
of any deficiency from the debtor's equity holders, pursuant to
their joint and several guaranty agreements only, and expressly
does not treat such deficiency as an unsecured claim.

Wilmington, North Carolina-based Swartville LLC filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. E.D.N.C. Case No. 11-08676) on Nov. 14, 2011.
Judge Stephani W. Humrickhouse oversees the case.  Trawick H.
Stubbs, Jr., at Stubbs & Perdue, P.A., serves as the Debtor's
counsel.  The Debtor scheduled assets of $1,933,404 and
liabilities of $2,437,272.  The petition was signed by Joel
Tomaselli, member/manager.

Debtor's Amended Plan of Reorganization on or before Feb. 27,
2012.

All ballots for the acceptance or rejection of Debtor's Amended
Plan of Reorganization must be received by Debtor's counsel on or
before March 1, 2012.

The Debtor will file a ballot summary pursuant to Local Rule 3018

1141(d) and Fed. R. Bankr. P. 4004(a), will be Jan. 26, 2012, and
notice of said bar date will be given to creditors and other
parties in interest.

As reported in the TCR on Sept. 26, 2011, the First Amended Plan
provides that the amount of WBCMT 2006 - C27 Plumas Street, LLC's
secured claim will be the lesser of the value of Lakeridge East
Apartments, located at 6155 Plumas Street, in Reno, Nevada,
determined as of the Confirmation Date or the WBCMT Note Balance.
WBCMT will retain its security interest in the Property.

The WBCMT Secured Claim will bear interest at the rate of 4.25%
per annum from and after the Effective Date, or, in the event of
objection by the Class 1 creditor, other rate as the Court will
determine is appropriate after considering the evidence at the
Confirmation Hearing.  On or before the 15th day of each and every
month, commencing on the 15th day of the next month following the

equal to the normal amortized monthly payment based upon the WBCMT

The balance owed on the WBCMT Secured Claim, together with any and
all accrued interest, fees and costs due thereunder, will be paid
on or before 10 years following the Effective Date, or other date
as may be proposed by the Debtor and approved by the court at the
Confirmation Hearing.

The WBCMT Note and the WBCMT Deed of Trust will remain in full
force and effect.

In the event of a default by the Debtor under the Plan, and in the
event Debtor fails to cure the default within 15 business days
after delivery of notice to the Debtor and to Debtor's counsel,
WBCMT will be entitled to enforce all of the terms of the WBCMT
Deed of Trust and the WBCMT Note, in addition to all rights
available under Nevada law, including, without limitation,
foreclosure upon the Property and the opportunity to credit bid
the entire amount of the WBCMT Note at any foreclosure sale.

In the event WBCMT makes a timely election under Section 1111(b)
(2) of the Bankruptcy Code, and the same is allowed by the Court,
then as of the WBCMT Maturity Date, the balance paid to WBCMT will
be the greater of i) the balance owed on the WBCMT Secured Claim
as of the WBCMT Maturity Date; or ii) the WBCMT Note Balance less
the total of all payments received by WBCMT Post Petition.

required TMP to pay them off earlier this year, helping cause the
business to shut down.  Unsecured creditors, asserting

the Chapter 11 plan.  The Ad Hoc Committee consists of AT&T Yellow

TOM MARTINO: Judge Orders Auction of Airplane Hangar
----------------------------------------------------
David Migoya at the Denver Post reports that Judge Michael Romero
ordered on Jan. 10, 2012, the auction of an airplane hangar
belonging to troubleshooter Tom Martino over the radio host's
objections.

According to the report, Judge Romero said Mr. Martino should have
filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code if he
wanted to control how his assets were disbursed.  Instead, Mr.
Martino filed for Chapter 7 protection Sept. 2, which leaves to a
court-appointed trustee how to liquidate his assets.

The report says trustee Simon Rodriguez sought the court's
permission to sell the hangar in Watkins, which Mr. Martino has
fought to keep.  The hangar, which Mr. Martino's lawyer says is
worth about $180,000, was scheduled to be sold publicly Jan. 18,
2012.

The report says lawyer Stephen Berken said at a Jan. 10 hearing
that Mr. Martino is settling many of his debts, deals that should
free him from much of the $70 million he said he owes and remove
any need to sell the hangar.  Most of the debts were the result of
real-estate deals that tanked with the economy.

The hangar is held by Colorado Airplane Hanger Co., which Mr.
Martino owns.

US AIRWAYS: Navigate Challenging Market With JetBlue
----------------------------------------------------
After the airline industry struggled for most of 2011, analysts
argue the industry could be in for more difficulties this year.
International Air Transport Association (IATA) says that airlines
are expected to generate overall profits of $3.5 billion in 2012,
down from the estimated $6.9 billion in 2011 and $16 billion in
2010. A recent press release issued by Sabre Airline Solutions
argues that government regulation regarding airport security,
emissions and taxes is one of top issues negatively impacting
global airlines' revenues over the next 18 months. Five Star
Equities examines investing opportunities in the Airlines industry
and provides Stock research on US Airways Group Inc. LCC -1.32%

One of the top headlines of 2011 in the airlines industry was the
bankruptcy filing of American Airlines' parent company, AMR
Corporation. Jamie Baker, an airline analyst with J.P Morgan,
argues that the Chapter 11 filing by AMR will lead to further
shrinkage of what was once the nation's largest airline.

According to a report from Investopedia, bankruptcy filings by
American's competitors "have helped them become more cost
effective." United cut overall expenses by $7 billion, while Delta
Airlines, which filed for bankruptcy in 2005, reduced its fleet
size by 11 percent, employees by 17 percent and terminated its
pension plans for pilots.

Last week The Wall Street Journal reported that Delta Airlines, US
Airways Group Inc. and private-equity firm TPG Capital are
separately assessing possible bids for AMR Corporation, with hopes
"that AMR's troubles present another opportunity for airline
consolidation," the Journal reports.

After its merger with Northwest Airlines in 2008, Delta became the
world's largest carrier by traffic, though it was later eclipsed
when United Airlines merged with Continental to become America's
number one airline.

VALLEY TRANSPORTATION: Fitch Holds Rating on $17MM Bonds at 'BB'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has taken the following action on Chesterfield
Valley Transportation Development District, MO's (the district)
bonds:

  -- $17.4 million series 2006 transportation sales tax revenue
     bonds affirmed at 'BB'.

The Rating Outlook is revised to Stable from Negative.

The bonds are limited obligations payable solely from the net
revenues of a 0.375% sales tax on retail sales collected within
the district, subject to annual appropriation.  The sales tax
expires February 2031, well after the final maturity of the bonds.
There is also a cash-funded debt service reserve fund (DSRF) with
a $2.03 million funding requirement; the DSRF is currently fully
funded.

Sales tax collections fell by nearly 16% between fiscals 2007 and
2010.  The decline was mostly attributable to the recession but
also due partly to a one-month payment lag in 2010 which was
created when the state assumed sales tax collection
responsibilities from the City of Chesterfield in early 2010.  In
addition, the 2006 issue was structured based on overly-optimistic
sales tax projections, leading to marginal debt service coverage
from the onset.

As a result of the recent declines, sales tax revenues were
insufficient to meet debt service requirements, forcing the
district to draw upon the DSRF in each of the past two years.
These drawdowns totaled $182,000 in 2010 and $450,000 in 2011 to
cover the larger April principal and interest payments.  In both
years, the DSRF requirement was restored before the end of the
year as sales taxes were received and deposits were made per the
flow of funds.  District officials project that annual DSRF draws
will be required through 2015 based on their 2% sales tax growth
assumptions.  After 2015, debt service drops significantly until
2026.

Projected 2011 sales tax collections cover about 97% of annual
debt service requirements through 2015.  The bonds are unusually
structured with a large bullet maturity in 2026 and interest
payments only from 2017 through 2025.  All excess sales tax
revenues are required to redeem the 2026 bullet via an
extraordinary redemption feature.  Assuming projected 2011 sales
tax levels and no subsequent growth, Fitch's projection indicates
that pledged revenues and DSRF monies should be more than adequate
to cover all debt service requirements.  Under Fitch's stress
scenario, sales tax collections could decline by 6% in 2012 and an
additional 3.5% annually over the life of the issue and, with
remaining DSRF monies, still meet all debt service requirements.

The district encompasses a sizable 7.43 square mile area located
along a five-mile corridor of Interstate 64 in western St. Louis
County.  As of December 2011, there were 350 retail establishments
located within the district, comprising one of the largest
concentrations of big box retailers in the region.  As to be
expected with big box retailers, there is point-of-sale
concentration, with the top 15 payers accounting for 60% of total
2010 sales tax collections.  The district contains in excess of
seven million square feet of development with over 10% of the
total land area still undeveloped. Recently, three large stores,
which are expected to be top 20 sales tax generators, opened
within the district.  In addition, the district officials are
considering several proposals to construct outlet malls within the
district which could potentially attract new shoppers.

County employment levels have exhibited substantial growth in
2011.  September 2011 employment increased by 3.7% over September
2010 levels, reducing county unemployment rates to 8.4% from 9.5%.
The county supports a diverse economic base, which includes Boeing
and Washington University.  Wealth indices are well above the
state and national averages.

The pledged sales tax is subject to annual appropriation by the
district.  However, non-appropriation is unlikely as the pledged
sales tax cannot be used for non-district purposes.  Furthermore,
if the district fails to adopt a budget in any year, the prior
year's budget will remain in effect.

The bond documents are loosely written allowing for liberal
issuance of additional parity debt.  However, officials indicate
that there are no plans to issue more bonds and an independent
board composed of various county and city officials would be
expected to curtail excessive issuance.


WINGATE AIRPORT: Can Borrow $2 Million From Lender's Mortgage
-------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Mike K. Nakagawa approved, on Dec. 14, 2011,
the amended motion of Wingate Airport South, LLC, for

----------------------------------------------------
Rachel Slajda at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a contract appeals
board tossed a contractor claim against the U.S. Agency for

reorganization precludes it from pursuing the claim.

that the contractor, USCS Chemical Chartering LLC, was no longer
the same entity who first brought the claim in 2009, having since
declared and emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

prominent insolvency and restructuring partners is joining its
firmwide Insolvency & Restructuring practice, and will be resident

They bring extensive experience in the financial services sector,
a key industry for Pillsbury and our clients. Our Finance, M&A,
Litigation, Tax and Real Estate practices, among others, will
benefit with the addition of this elite team and contribute to the
creation of a world-class bankruptcy practice."

"Pillsbury's insolvency group and the firm's industry strengths
form a very dynamic platform for our combined team," Mr. Palmer
noted. "Together, we are excited about our practice's remarkable
opportunities and focus on client service as challenges in this
field become more complex across different types of
organizations."

Recognized as one of the "Leading Law Firm Rainmakers" by the
Minority Corporate Counsel Association, Mr. Palmer is active in
the American Bankruptcy Institute and the Turnaround Management
Association. For more than 10 years, he served as a foreign
advisor on U.S. bankruptcy law to the People's Republic of China
(PRC) and was instrumental in the drafting of the new PRC
Enterprise Bankruptcy Law. An Adjunct Professor of Law at New York
Law School, Mr. Palmer received his B.A. from Syracuse University
and his J.D. from the University of Michigan.

Andrew Troop and Christopher Mirick have also received accolades
for their work. Most recently, Legal 500 recognized Troop for
being "extremely capable, effective and creative," and IFLR1000
reported that clients praise Mr. Mirick for demonstrating
"tremendous leadership skills" and having "very innovative
solutions." Troop and Mirick focus their practices on business
reorganizations and debtors' and creditors' rights. Troop's
practice includes representing nonprofit organizations within his
primary focus of debtors' and creditors' rights. He received his
J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law and his B.A. from
Amherst College.  Mr. Mirick has represented private equity
clients in connection with acquiring, selling and reorganizing
both domestic and international portfolio companies. He has also
counseled mezzanine lenders and private equity investors in
defending fraudulent-transfer and breach-of-duty claims asserted
in connection with companies to which they have extended credit or
invested equity. A graduate of Amherst College, he holds a J.D.
from Harvard Law School.

Pillsbury's Insolvency & Restructuring practice is a well-
integrated team of lawyers practicing in New York, Los Angeles,
San Francisco, Washington DC, San Diego and Orange County
(together with colleagues in London, Tokyo and Shanghai). Practice
members represent a broad spectrum of clients dealing with
complex, sophisticated and distressed financial situations,
including the representation of distressed entities as well as
clients that lend to distressed entities. Recent bankruptcy
representation includes the equity committees in Solutia and
Tronox, the debtor in Congoleum, and clients with signification
positions in the Washington Mutual, Delta Airlines, Heller Ehrman

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.
