50 BELOW: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
----------------------------------------------------
Northland's NewsCenter reports 50 Below has filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy.  The report, citing court documents, says the Company
has more than $12 million in unsecured claims, nearly $8.8 million
of which is owed to the Internal Revenue Service, and another $1
million to the Minnesota Department of Revenue.

The report notes the Company at one point was investigated by the
IRS for failing to pay employee taxes. In November, a cash flow
issue left some of the Company's employees waiting more than a
week to get their paychecks, the report adds.

The report says 50 Below has secured a bankruptcy attorney and
financial consultant to get the Company back on track.

The report relates a meeting of the creditors is scheduled for
October 5, 2012.

David Hogge is the company's chief executive officer.

50 Below provides Internet marketing and web design services.


A GEORGIA: Files for Chapter 11 in Gainesville
----------------------------------------------
A Georgia Limited Partnership, a single asset real estate, filed a
Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D. Ga. Case No. 12-23082) in its
home-town in Gainesville, Georgia.  The Debtor estimated assets of
up to $50 million and liabilities of up to $10 million.  The
statement of financial affairs says A Georgia generated
$1.01 million in 2010, $262,000 in 2011, and $32,000 so far this
year from the Diamond C Ranch.  John J. McManus, Esq., at John J.
McManus & Associates, P.C., serves as counsel.


ALLIANT TECHSYSTEM: Moody's Affirms 'Ba2' CFR; Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Baa3 rating to the
planned $200 million first lien term loan of Alliant Techsystems,
Inc. ("ATK"). A first time Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of
SGL-2, denoting good liquidity, has been assigned as well.
Concurrently, all existing ratings have been affirmed including
the Ba2 corporate family rating. The rating outlook is stable.
Proceeds of the planned $200 million first lien term loan will be
used to partially fund ATK's pending redemption of $400 million 6
3/4% senior subordinate notes due 2016.

Ratings assigned:

  $200 million first lien term loan due 2017, assigned at Baa3,
  LGD2, 22%

  Speculative Grade Liquidity, assigned at SGL-2

Ratings affirmed:

  Corporate Family, affirmed at Ba2

  Probability of Default, affirmed at Ba2

  $600 million first lien revolving credit facility due 2015,
  affirmed at Baa3, LGD2, to 22% from 15%

  $400 million term loan due 2015, affirmed at Baa3, LGD2, to 22%
  from 15%

  $400 million 6 3/4% senior subordinated notes due 2016,
  affirmed at Ba3, LGD4, 68% (rating will be withdrawn at
  redemption)

  $350 million 6 7/8% senior subordinated notes due 2020,
  affirmed at Ba3, to LGD5, 74% from LGD4, 68%

  $200 million 3% convertible senior subordinated notes due 2024,
  affirmed at Ba3, to LGD5, 74% from LGD4, 68%

Rating Outlook, Stable

Ratings Rationale

ATK's corporate family rating of Ba2 reflects its good scale and
returns and the likelihood that credit ratios will remain at
supportive levels including debt to EBITDA in the mid 3x range
with EBIT to interest in the high 3x range on a Moody's adjusted
basis. While the U.S. defense spending declines that seem likely
ahead will challenge the company's earnings prospects, ATK has
lowered its cost base in recent quarters through plant
consolidations and other overhead reductions. These actions should
help earnings show better resiliency than revenues may show. The
rating recognizes that a key contract re-compete is also upcoming
(Lake City Army Ammunition Plant contract representing 15% FY2012
revenues), and that many of the consumer products sold within
ATK's Sporting Group segment have, as is typically the case,
experienced strong orders leading up to the U.S. Presidential
election and will likely see orders decline soon after. ATK's plan
to use about $200 million of cash to fund the $400 million
subordinate note redemption will reduce the (Moody's adjusted)
debt load by 7%. The rating also considers some potential for a
significant level of acquisition spending in coming years as the
tight U.S. fiscal position diminishes defense and space sector
orders and could ultimately threaten ATK's returns.

The first-time Speculative Grade Liquidity rating assignment of
SGL-2 denotes good liquidity. Following redemption of the
subordinate notes the company's cash balance will be low at about
$50 million but availability under the $600 million revolving
credit facility provides ample financial flexibility for a company
of its size. ($166 million of letters of credit outstanding as of
June 30, 2012.) The SGL-2 rating benefits from the ample cushion
that Moody's expects continuing near-term under the first lien
credit facility's financial ratio covenant tests. Likelihood that
pension contributions into 2013 will be lower than they were in
the three months ended June 30, 2012 ($140 million) should permit
annual free cash flow generation in the $120 million range, an
amount that comfortably exceeds near-term debt maturities of $35
million. Since the next put date on ATK's $200 million convertible
subordinated notes is not until 2014, the SGL-2 rating does not
factor in that liquidity need.

The rating outlook is stable. This considers the $6 billion plus
backlog, the likelihood of near-term free cash flow generation and
management's focus on reducing debt as the performance environment
grows less certain.

Upward rating pressure would develop with revenues and backlog
expanding from current levels, debt/EBITDA expected below 3x,
EBITA/interest above 4x and FCF/debt above 10%. Downward rating
pressure would mount with debt/EBITDA above 4x, EBITA/interest
under 3x, FCF/debt below 5%, or weakening liquidity.

Alliant Techsystems Inc. produces propulsion, composite
structures, munitions, rocket motor systems, precision missiles,
and civil, military and sport ammunition. The company organizes
its operations into three segments: Aerospace Group (27% of Q1-
FY2013 revenues), Defense Group (48%), and Sporting Good (25%).
Over the last twelve months ended June 30, 2012 revenues were
approximately $4.6 billion.

The principal methodology used in rating Alliant Techsystems Inc.
was the Global Aerospace and Defense Industry Methodology
published in June 2010. Other methodologies used include Loss
Given Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the
U.S., Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.


ALLIED IRISH: Incurs EUR1.2 Billion Net Loss in H1 2012
-------------------------------------------------------
Following the release of its 2012 Preliminary Interim Results on
July 27, 2012, Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c., published its Half
Yearly Financial Report for the six months ended 30 June 2012.

Allied Irish reported a net loss of EUR1.21 billion on EUR771
million of total operating income for the half year ended June 30,
2012, compared with profit of EUR2.23 billion n EUR851 million of
total operating income for the half year of 2011.

Allied Irish's balance sheet at June 30, 2012, showed EUR129.85
billion in total assets, EUR116.59 billion in total liabilities
and EUR13.26 billion in total shareholders' equity.

A copy of the filing is available for free at:

                      About Allied Irish Banks

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

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

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

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

The Company reported a loss of EUR2.29 billion in 2011, a loss of
EUR10.16 billion in 2010, and a loss of EUR2.33 billion in 2009.

Allied Irish's consolidated statement of financial position for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, showed EUR136.65 billion in total
assets, EUR122.18 billion in total liabilities and EUR14.46
billion in shareholders' equity.


AMERICAN ACHIEVEMENT: S&P Cuts CCR to 'B-' on Weak Credit Metrics
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Austin, Texas-based American Achievement Corp.to 'B-'
from 'B'. "We lowered our existing issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured second-lien notes due 2016 to 'B-'. The
recovery rating remains '4', indicating our expectation of average
(30% to 50%) recovery for noteholders in the event of a payment
default," S&P said.

"The downgrade to 'B-' reflects Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services' expectation that American Achievement's ongoing
unfavorable revenue trends will continue to pressure EBITDA and
discretionary cash flow, drive leverage higher, and could further
weaken its already thin interest coverage, especially if the
company needs to access its revolving credit facility to fund the
business," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Christopher
Valentine. "We characterize the company's business risk profile as
'weak' because of its focus on a single line of business in the
niche market for yearbooks, class rings, and other graduation-
related products, and weaker demand for its products in a
protracted soft economy. We continue to assess the company's
financial risk profile as 'highly leveraged' because of its high
debt to EBITDA and weak interest coverage."

"American Achievement is a major manufacturer and supplier of
yearbooks, class rings, and graduation products (known as school-
affinity products), as well as recognition products. The school
affinity-related product market is a mature business with
relatively high barriers to entry. American Achievement is a
second-tier player in this niche business because of its existing
relationships with customers and strong product offerings. It is
one-fourth the size, based on EBITDA, of the market leader, Visant
Corp. Typically, because of students' strong emotional ties with
their schools and with fellow students, and tradition-based timing
of ring and yearbook buying, purchase rates by students are fairly
stable. Nevertheless, we believe its operations are vulnerable to
weakness in the economy and to historically high gold prices,
causing a shift by consumers to lower-priced metals for jewelry
and affinity products. A major portion of the company's revenues
and EBITDA are seasonal and tied to the U.S. academic year, and
could face increased pressure given the current weak economy," S&P
said.


AMERICAN AIRLINES: Ex-Employee Barred From Pursuing Lawsuit
-----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Sean Lane denied a motion by a former American Airlines
Inc. employee to lift the automatic stay that was applied to a
lawsuit he filed against the company.

Valentin Jean-Louis, who was terminated from his job in 2007, sued
the company due to alleged discriminatory employment practices.
The lawsuit, which is pending in a district court in New York, was
automatically halted after American Airlines filed for bankruptcy
protection.

The lawsuit seeks reinstatement of Mr. Jean-Louis to his position
at American Airlines as well as payment for damages and attorney's
fees.

American Airlines lawyers had urged the bankruptcy judge to deny
the motion, saying it "would deprive [the company] of the
breathing spell" from various lawsuits.

Mr. Jean-Louis "has failed to demonstrate that cause exists to
deprive American Airlines of this essential protection of the
Bankruptcy Code," according to Stephen Youngman, Esq., at Weil
Gotshal & Manges LLP, in New York.

The committee representing American Airlines' unsecured creditors
also opposed the motion, arguing the former employee "has not
shown cause" to lift the injunction.

AMERICAN AIRLINES: Non-Union Retirees Seek $134,500 in Fees
-----------------------------------------------------------
AMR Retirees Pension Protection Corp. has filed an application for
payment of fees and expenses for the first quarter of 2012.

ARPPC, a group formed by AMR Corp.'s pensioners who were not
members of any union, seeks payment of $134,470 in fees and $919
in expenses for the period January 26 to March 3, 2012, for its
"substantial contribution" in the company's bankruptcy case.

The group claimed it was involved in the formation of the
committee representing AMR's retired workers.

"The legal services rendered by ARPPC's counsel in these cases
were not rendered to benefit ARPPC directly.  Rather, they were
designed to protect the interests of the thousands of retirees of
the debtors," the group's lawyer, Joshua Angel, Esq., at Herrick
Feinstein LLP, in New York.

A court hearing to consider approval of the application is
scheduled for September 20.

comparable store sales increased 24%, including a 24% increase in
comparable store sales for its retail store channel and a 19%
increase in net sales for its online channel.

"August will represent our 15th consecutive month of positive
comparable sales, and will be the largest sales increase reported
in nearly four years," said Dov Charney, chairman and chief
executive of American Apparel, Inc.  "This performance was
companywide: double digit sales growth across almost all major
markets and product categories.  However, there is still
significant low-hanging fruit for us to exploit in order to
further improve store productivity.  Near term, we're focused on
the implementation of tighter inventory management systems through
our RFID program, store renovations, installation of traffic
counters, and the completion of our new distribution center to
improve the speed and accuracy of shipments to stores.  Each of
these programs will bring measurable improvements in overall store
productivity."

ARRAY BIOPHARMA: Three Directors to Depart from Board
-----------------------------------------------------
Array BioPharma Inc. announced that Francis Bullock, Ph.D., and
Kevin Koch, Ph.D., have decided not to stand for reelection to its
Board of Directors and that David Snitman, Ph.D., intends to
resign from the Board of Directors.  Each of the directors will be
leaving the Board effective following Array's Annual Meeting of
Stockholders to be held on Oct. 24, 2012.  Dr. Koch and Dr.
Snitman will continue their leadership roles on Array's executive
team, with Dr. Koch continuing to serve as President and Chief
Scientific Officer and Dr. Snitman continuing to serve as Chief
Operating Officer and Vice President of Business Development.  Dr.
Bullock decided not to stand for reelection so that he could
devote more time to his other personal and professional
responsibilities.  A search is underway to add independent
directors with industry knowledge, skills and expertise to guide
Array in achieving its goal of becoming a commercial-stage
biopharmaceutical company.

"As founding members of our Board, we thank Dr. Bullock, Dr. Koch
and Dr. Snitman for their exceptional leadership, expertise and
contributions," said Kyle Lefkoff, Chairman of Array BioPharma.
"Array has grown from a drug discovery and early-stage development
company to a late-stage clinical development company with a deep
pipeline of programs.  We intend to add independent directors who
have clinical development and/or commercialization expertise in
the cancer therapeutic area to help guide us as we bring our
pipeline of products to the market."

Dr. Koch added, "I am proud to have founded Array and to have
worked with Array's other Board members over the years.  We have
established a track record of producing high quality drug
candidates, advancing 18 drug candidates into human clinical
trials, 10 of which are in Phase 2.  Array was built on
exceptional science and a culture of inventing great molecules,
fueled by the passion and skill which our people demonstrate every
day.  I am confident that exceptional science will continue to
guide us through our evolution, and excited to see the impact our
discoveries will have for patients."

In addition, Dr. Snitman noted, "It is an honor to be an Array
founder, serve on its leadership team and Board, and contribute to
its success.  Array's ability to discover and advance drug
candidates that have the promise to impact millions of patient
lives has attracted some of the most well-respected pharmaceutical
company partners in the industry, including Novartis, AstraZeneca,
Roche/Genentech, Amgen and Celgene.  I am excited to continue
leading our business development activities as we focus on
maximizing the value of our non-oncology assets, including our
pain drug candidate, ARRY-797 and our asthma drug candidate, ARRY-
502, through strategic partnerships."

And Dr. Bullock said, "It has been a privilege to help Array grow
and mature into a fully-integrated biopharmaceutical company.  Now
with new leadership and the stage set for commercial success, it
is time for the Board's representation to evolve as well."

The decisions to leave the Board did not arise from any
disagreement on any matter relating to the Company's operations,
policies or practices.

Earlier this year, Array appointed two new independent directors
to Array's Board: Liam Ratcliffe, Ph.D., M.D., and Gwen Fyfe,
M.D., both with extensive clinical development experience.

                   Directors OK 2013 Bonus Program

On Aug. 31, 2012, and on the recommendation of the Compensation
Committee, the independent directors of the Board of Directors of
Array BioPharma Inc. approved the performance bonus program for
annual bonus awards that may be earned by employees of the
Company, including the Company's executive officers, for fiscal
2013.

Under the bonus program, certain of the Company's employees,
including its executive officers, will be entitled to earn a bonus
payable in cash, stock or stock option equivalents based upon the
achievement of certain specified performance goals and objectives
relating to the Company and to each individual participant.  To
the extent the corporate and individual performance goals are met,
each participant may be eligible to receive a target bonus
calculated by multiplying the participant's base salary by a
percentage value later assigned to the participant or to his or
her position with the Company by the Compensation Committee.  A
percentage of this target bonus amount may be awarded following
the end of the fiscal year to the extent the Compensation
Committee determines the corporate and individual performance
goals are met.

The plan can be amended in whole or in part by the Compensation
Committee at any time until paid.  The Compensation Committee
recommended and the independent directors of the Board approved
the specific performance goals for fiscal 2013 under the
performance bonus program.  The performance bonuses for 2013 will
be based both on individual performance and on the Company's
performance relative to the following performance criteria:
revenues, earnings per share, year-end cash, discovery research
and clinical development goals, transactional goals relating to
out-licensing, partnership or collaboration transactions and
corporate organizational goals.  In determining the bonus awards
for fiscal 2013, the foregoing goals will be weighted as follows:
financial goals 9%; discovery research goals 9%; clinical
development goals 56%; transactional goals 18%; and organizational
goals 9%.  A description of the performance bonus program is

Array BioPharma reported a net loss of $23.58 million for the year
ended June 30, 2012, a net loss of $56.32 million for the year
ended June 30, 2011, and a net loss of $77.63 million for

$108.07 million in total assets, $193.87 million in total
liabilities, and a $85.80 million total stockholders' deficit.

"If we are unable to obtain additional funding from these or other
sources when needed, or to the extent needed, it may be necessary
to significantly reduce the current rate of spending through
further reductions in staff and delaying, scaling back, or
stopping certain research and development programs, including more
costly Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials on our wholly owned
programs as these programs progress into later stage development,"
the Company said in its annual report for the year ended June 30,
2012.  "Insufficient liquidity may also require us to relinquish
greater rights to product candidates at an earlier stage of
development or on less favorable terms to us and our stockholders
than we would otherwise choose in order to obtain up-front license
fees needed to fund operations.  These events could prevent us
from successfully executing our operating plan and in the future
could raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a
going concern."


AS AMERICA: S&P Affirms 'B' Corp. Credit Rating; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its rating outlook on
Piscataway, N.J.-based AS America Inc. to stable from negative.
"At the same time, we affirmed our ratings on the company,
including the 'B' corporate credit rating," S&P said.

"The rating and outlook reflect our view that recent operating
performance for AS America Inc. has been in line with expectations
given the gradual recovery in new construction as well as higher
levels of repair and remodeling," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Maurice S. Austin. "Standard & Poor's economists are
projecting 760,000 total housing starts in 2012, an improvement
over the approximately 610,000 achieved in 2011, but still well
below the long term historical average of 1.5 million annual
starts. In addition, we expect spending on repairs and remodeling,
from which AS America generates approximately 85% of sales,
accelerate as homeowners catch up on deferred maintenance."

"Given our expectations, we believe sales could grow in the low-
single digits in 2012, reflecting the increases we expect in
housing starts as well as repair and remodeling spending. Gross
margins have improved since the beginning of the year despite
still high raw material costs. As a result, we think that total
adjusted leverage will likely exceed 6x over the next 24 months,
with interest coverage remaining below 2x, which we think are weak
metrics for the rating. (AS America does not publicly disclose
financial information given its private company status)," S&P
said.

"The corporate credit rating on AS America Inc. reflects the
combination of what we consider to be the company's 'weak'
business risk and 'highly leveraged' financial risk. The weak
business risk profile reflects AS America's dependence on the
challenging residential and nonresidential construction end
markets, high customer concentrations, thin operating profit
margins, and competitive markets, partially offset by the
company's leading positions in the chinaware and baths categories,
and a competitive position in faucets. We view the financial risk
profile as highly leveraged, given total leverage (including
adjustments for postretirement obligations and operating leases)
of about 10.5x as of June 30, 2012," S&P said.

"AS America Inc. is a manufacturer and distributor of fixtures,
faucets and fittings for the North American bathroom and kitchen
markets, and operates under the American Standard, Crane Plumbing,
and Eljer brand names, among others," S&P said.

"The stable rating outlook reflects our assessment that leverage
strengthens from 20x at the end of 2011 to about 6.5x by the end
of 2012. This level is weak for the rating but the trend is
positive and reflects our expectation for accelerating remodeling
activity in the U.S. for the rest of 2012 and into 2013," S&P
said.

"A higher rating, although unlikely in the near term, could occur
if a greater-than-expected recovery in residential and commercial
construction were to result in leverage likely to be maintained at
about 4x, or if FFO to debt were to exceed 20%," S&P said.

"We could lower the ratings on AS America if operating conditions
deteriorate because of prolonged minimal construction activity and
repair and remodeling spending begins to decline. Downward rating
pressure could also occur if a decline in EBITDA caused the
company to use cash to fund operating losses, resulting in a drop
in liquidity below the $45 million needed to fund its fixed
charges," S&P said.


AVANTAIR INC: Kevin Beitzel Resigns as Chief Operating Officer
--------------------------------------------------------------
Effective Aug. 30, 2012, the Chief Operating Officer of Avantair,
Inc., Kevin Beitzel, has resigned his position with the Company.
Mr. Beitzel has agreed to remain with the Company in order to
transition his previous responsibilities through Sept. 30, 2012,
following which he will remain with the Company on a consulting
basis as needed.

On Aug. 24, 2012, Steven Santo, chief executive officer of the
Company and Stephen Wagman, president of the Company, in
furtherance of their continued actions as part of the Company's
ongoing efforts to reduce expenses, advised the Board of Directors
of voluntary decreases in their compensation, which the Board of
Directors approved.

Effective Aug. 24, 2012, each Senior Officer agreed to a decrease
in his annual base salary by the following percentages (when
compared to their respective annual base salary levels in fiscal
2012): Steven Santo agreed to reduce his salary by 15%, from
$525,000 to $450,000, and Stephen Wagman agreed to reduce his
salary by 6%, from $375,000 to $352,500.

Furthermore, each Senior Officer agreed to voluntarily forego his
annual bonus opportunities for fiscal year 2012.  When compared to
Mr. Santo's bonus payment for fiscal 2011, which was $200,000, the
result is a further decrease in his compensation level, such that
Mr. Santo's total compensation decreased from fiscal 2011 by
approximately 52%.

Consistent with the Senior Officers' salary reductions, the
Company's non-employee directors have agreed to reduce their
director compensation by 40%.  Each Director will reduce their
annual cash compensation by 40% from fiscal 2012 levels, from
$40,000 to $24,000.  Moreover, the Chairman of the Board and each
Committee Chairman will reduce the additional compensation for
their services as respective Chairmen by 40%.  More specifically,
Robert Lepofsky, Chairman of the Board, will reduce his additional
chairman compensation from $32,000 to $19,200; Dick DeWolfe, Audit
Committee Chairman, will reduce his additional chairman
compensation from $ 24,000 to $14,400 and A. Clinton Allen,
Governance Committee Chairman, and Arthur Goldberg, Compensation
Committee Chairman, will reduce their additional chairman
compensation from $16,000 to $9,600.

BERJAC OF OREGON: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
------------------------------------------------------------
Berjac of Oregon filed a bare-bones Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D.
Ore. Case No. 12-63884) in Eugene on Aug. 31, 2012.  Its
affiliate, Berjac of Portland, Oregon, also sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection.

Berjac of Oregon estimated assets and debts of $10 million to
$50 million.  The exclusive period to propose a Chapter 11 plan
expires Dec. 31.

Berjac -- http://www.berjac.com/-- has provided insurance premium
financing to insureds in the Western United States since 1963. A
related entity is Berjac of Portland.

Brent Hunsberger at The Oregonian reports the petition, listing
more than $17.6 million in unsecured claims, was signed by Michael
S. Holcomb of Eugene, who owns the Berjac partnerships with his
brother Gary Holcomb of Lake Oswego.  Berjac's bankruptcy petition
listed between $10 million and $50 million in assets and
liabilities.

According to The Oregonian, on the date of the bankruptcy filing,
state regulators fined Berjac $900,000, saying that 275 investors
might have lost up to $35 million making risky loans to the men's
firms.

The Oregonian relates state officials moved quickly to issue a
press release before the Labor Day weekend to warn other investors
of the firm's alleged illegal scheme and apparent financial woes.

The report notes it's the second time Berjac and the Holcombs have
run afoul of Oregon securities regulators. According to the
report, in its cease-and-desist orders signed Thursday and mailed
Aug. 31, the Oregon Division of Finance and Corporate Securities
accused Berjac and the Holcomb brothers of violating Oregon
securities laws.  The orders allege the Holcombs sold unsecured
notes to investors without registering them, getting a license or
offering investors a detailed prospectus.

The report says, for five decades, Berjac has loaned businesses
money to buy business-related casualty insurance policies, state
officials said.  The Holcombs front the large insurance premiums
for businesses, which then repay them over time with interest.

The report relates, to finance some real-estate deals the Holcombs
sold unsecured promissory notes to Oregon residents offering
returns of 5.5% a year.  Relatives of the Holcombs were told
they'd get even higher returns -- between 10% and 12% a year.

The Oregonian notes the "Berjac Notes" were sold largely by word
of mouth and at public functions, such as the Eugene Executives'
Association, according to the state's orders.  Most investors are
in the Eugene and Portland area.

According to the report, the state noted in one of the orders that
in 2010, Windridge Homes owner Fred A. Ball filed for bankruptcy,
owing Berjac $8.7 million.  Mr. Ball's bankruptcy petition,
however, listed Berjac of Portland as an unsecured creditor and
characterized the business debt as a personal guarantee worth no
current value.  Mr. Ball also did business as Fishback Creek
Homeowners Association and McDonald Woods Homeowners Association,
both in the Portland area.


BIOFUEL ENERGY: Thomas Edelman Discloses 9.3% Equity Stake

                        Bankruptcy Warning

"Drought conditions in the American Midwest have significantly
impacted this year's corn crop and caused a significant reduction
in the anticipated corn yield," the Company said in its quarterly
report for the period ended June 30, 2012.  "Since the end of the
second quarter, this has led to a dramatic increase in the price
of corn and a corresponding narrowing in the crush spread.  Should
current commodity margins continue for an extended period of time,
we may not generate sufficient cash flow from operations to both
service our debt and operate our plants.  We are required to make,
under the terms of our Senior Debt Facility, quarterly principal
payments in a minimum amount of $3,150,000, plus accrued interest.
We cannot predict when or if crush spreads will fluctuate again or
if the current commodity margins will improve or worsen.  If crush
spreads were to remain at current levels for an extended period of
time, we may expend all of our sources of liquidity, in which
event we would not be able to pay principal and interest on our
debt.  In the event crush spreads narrow further, we may choose to
curtail operations at our plants or cease operations altogether
until such time as crush spreads improve.  Any inability to pay
principal and interest on our debt would lead to an event of
default under our Senior Debt Facility, which, in the absence of
forbearance, debt service abeyance or other accommodations from
our lenders, could require us to seek relief through a filing
under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  We expect fluctuations in the
crush spread to continue."

The Company incurred a net loss of $40.8 million on $640 million
of net sales for the 13 weeks ended April 28, 2012.

The Company's balance sheet at July 28, 2012, showed $1.56 billion

In the Jan. 12, 2012, edition of the TCR, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Bon-Ton
Stores Inc. to 'B-' from 'B'.

"The downgrade reflects the continued deterioration of the
company's performance, which has been below our expectations due
to merchandising that has not resonated with its customers," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst David Kuntz.  He added, "It
incorporates our view that operations will remain weak in the near
term and that credit protection measures will erode further
over the next year."

As reported by the TCR on July 13, 2012, Moody's Investors Service
revised The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc.'s Probability of Default Rating
to Caa1/LD from Caa3.  The Caa1/LD rating reflects the company's
exchange of $330 million of new senior secured notes due 2017 for
$330 million of its unsecured notes due 2014.  The LD designation
indicates that a limited default on the company's 2014 notes has
occurred, as Moody's deem that this transaction is a distressed
exchange.  The LD designation will be removed in approximately 3
business days.

Moody's also affirmed the company's Corporate Family Rating at
Caa1 and affirmed the Caa3 rating assigned to the company's senior
unsecured notes due 2014.


CAPITOL BANCORP: Court Restricts Stock Transfer to Protect NOLs
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Bankruptcy Court, in a final order, approved restrictions on
certain transfers of stock in and claims against Capitol Bancorp
Ltd. to preserve tax attributes.  The judge opined that the
Debtors' net operating loss carryforwards and certain other tax
attributes are property of the Debtors' estates protected by the
automatic stay of Section 362(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Court held that unrestricted trading in CBC Stock and Claims
against CBC before the effective date of the Debtors' Plan of
Reorganization could severely limit the Debtors' ability to use
the Tax Attributes.

The Court directed any person or entity that beneficially owns, at
any time after the Petition Date, claims against CBC in an amount
sufficient to qualify as a substantial claimholder to file with
the Court and serve on Debtors' counsel a Notice of Status as a
Substantial Claimholder.  A "Substantial Claimholder" is a person
or entity that beneficially owns, with respect to any Class of
Claims, a dollar amount of those Claims that is more than
$3,285,000 for Class-1 Senior Note Claims or $12,166,666 for
Class-2 Trust Preferred Securities Claims.

Prior to effectuating any acquisition or other transfer of Claims
that would result in an increase in the dollar amount of Claims
beneficially owned by a Substantial Claimholder, or a person or
Entity becoming a Substantial Claimholder, that person, Entity or
Substantial Claimholder, shall file with the Court, and serve on
counsel to the Debtors, advance written Notice of Proposed Claim
Acquisition of the intended Acquisition of Claims.

                       About Capitol Bancorp

Capitol Bancorp Ltd. and Financial Commerce Corporation filed
voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. E.D. Mich. Case
Nos. 12-58409 and 12-58406) on Aug. 9, 2012.  Capitol Bancorp --
http://www.capitolbancorp.com/-- is a community banking company
with a network of individual banks and bank operations in 10
states and total consolidated assets of roughly $2.0 billion as of
June 30, 2012.  Financial Commerce, formerly known as Michigan
Commerce Bancorp Limited, is a Michigan corporation.  CBC owns
roughly 97% of FCC, with a number of CBC affiliates owning the
remainder.  FCC, in turn, is the holding company for five of the
banks in CBC's network.  CBC is registered as a bank holding
company under the Bank Holding Company Act of 1956, as amended, 12
U.S.C. Sec. 1841, et seq., and trades on the OTCQB under the
symbol "CBCR."

CBC's banks are community banks, relatively small in market size,
emphasizing personalized banking relationships. The banks are
located in Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada,
New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio and Oregon.  CBC's consolidated
financial position was significantly adversely affected by large
operating losses in 2011, 2010 and 2009.  Those operating losses
resulted in an equity deficit and a regulatory-capital
classification as "undercapitalized" or "significantly
undercapitalized" as of Dec. 31, 2011.

Bankruptcy Judge Walter Shapero presides over the case.  Lawyers
at Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP represent the Debtors as
counsel.

In its petition, Capitol Bancorp scheduled $112,634,112 in total
assets and $195,644,527 in total liabilities.  The petitions were
signed by Cristin K. Reid, corporate president.

A hearing will be held on Sept. 18, 2012, at 10:30 a.m. to
consider confirmation of Capitol Bancorp's prepackaged Chapter 11
plan of reorganization.


CAPITOL CITY BANCSHARES: Incurs $389,000 Net Loss in 2nd Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------------
Capitol City Bancshares, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form
10-Q, reporting a net loss of $388,708 on $2.4 million of net
interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared
with net income of $158,585 on $2.3 million of net interest income
for the same period of the prior year.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company had a net loss
of $1.2 million on $4.7 million of net interest income, compared
with net income of $243,887 on $4.5 million of net interest income
for the same period last year.

A provision of $1,255,000 was made for the six months ended
June 30, 2012, as compared to a provision of $355,000 made for the
six months ended June 30, 2011.  The provision for the second
quarter of 2012 was $510,000 compared to $150,000 for the same
period of 2011.

                      Required Capital Levels

In January 2010, the Bank received a consent order from the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Georgia Department
of Banking and Finance.  The Order is a formal corrective action
pursuant to which the Bank has agreed to address specific issues,
through the adoption and implementation of procedures, plan and
policies designed to enhance the safety and soundness of the Bank.

According to the regulatory filing, the Bank has not achieved the
required capital levels mandated by the Order.

"The continuing level of problem loans as of the quarter ended
June 30, 2012, and capital levels continuing to be in the "under
capitalized" category of the regulatory framework for prompt
corrective action as of June 30, 2012, continue to create
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.  There can be no assurance that any capital raising
activities or other measures will allow the Bank to meet the
capital levels required in the Order.  Non-compliance with the
capital requirements of the Order and other provisions of the
Order may cause the Bank to be subject to further enforcement
actions by the FDIC or the Department."

about Capital City Bancshares' ability to continue as a going
concern, following the Company's results for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2011.  The independent auditors noted that the Company is
operating under regulatory orders to, among other items, increase
capital and maintain certain levels of minimum capital.  "As of
Dec. 31, 2011, the Company was not in compliance with these
capital requirements.  In addition to its deteriorating capital
position, the Company has suffered significant losses related to
nonperforming assets, has experienced declining levels of liquid
assets, and has significant maturities of liabilities within the
next twelve months."




CELL THERAPEUTICS: To Effect a 1-for-5 Reverse Stock Split
----------------------------------------------------------
Cell Therapeutics, Inc., has filed with the Secretary of State of
the State of Washington an amendment to its Amended and Restated
Articles of Incorporation to implement the 1-for-5 reverse stock
split announced on Aug. 8, 2012.  The Reverse Stock Split is
anticipated to be effective on Sept. 2, 2012.

As a result of the amendment to the Articles of Incorporation,
CTI's total number of authorized shares will be decreased from
384,999,999 shares to 76,999,999 shares; CTI's total number of
authorized shares of common stock will be decreased from
383,333,333 shares of common stock to 76,666,666 shares of common
stock; and CTI's total number of authorized shares of preferred
stock will be decreased from 1,666,666 shares of preferred stock
to 333,333 shares of preferred stock.

In connection with the Reverse Stock Split, CTI also announced
that its Board of Directors had approved certain amendments to
CTI's existing shareholder rights plan, to be effective after
giving effect to the Reverse Stock Split, namely, to decrease the
exercise price of the preferred stock purchase rights under the
Rights Plan from $36.00 to $14.00, to decrease the number of
shares of preferred stock issuable upon the exercise of a Right
from six ten-thousandths (6/10,000th) to one ten-thousandth
(1/10,000th), to decrease the redemption price of each Right from
$0.0006 to $0.0001 and to revise the definitions of "acquiring
person" and "beneficial ownership" under the Rights Plan.  The
Rights were initially distributed as a dividend on each share of
CTI's common stock outstanding on Jan. 7, 2010, and currently
trade with each outstanding share of CTI's common stock.

The Common Stock is quoted on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the
symbol "CTIC" and on the Mercato Telematico Azionario stock market
in Italy under the symbol "CTIC."  The Common Stock is scheduled
to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis on The NASDAQ Capital
Market in the United States and the MTA in Italy on Sept. 4, 2012.
The Company's trading symbol on The NASDAQ Capital Market and the
MTA will not change due to the Reverse Stock Split.

Cell Therapeutics reported a net loss attributable to CTI of
US$62.36 million in 2011, compared with a net loss attributable
to CTI of US$82.64 million in 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2012, showed $38.34

                     Going Concern Doubt Raised

The report of Marcum LLP, in San Francisco, Calif., dated
March 8, 2012, expressed an unqualified opinion, with an
explanatory paragraph as to the uncertainty regarding the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company's available cash and cash equivalents are US$47.1
million as of Dec. 31, 2011.  The Company's total current
liabilities were US$17.8 million as of Dec. 31, 2011.  The
Company does not expect that it will have sufficient cash to fund
its planned operations beyond the second quarter of 2012, which
raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue
as a going concern.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

The Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, noted that if the
Company receives approval of Pixuvri by the EMA or the FDA, it
would anticipate significant additional commercial expenses
associated with Pixuvri operations.  Accordingly, the Company
will need to raise additional funds and are currently exploring
alternative sources of equity or debt financing.  The Company may
seek to raise that capital through public or private equity
financings, partnerships, joint ventures, disposition of assets,
debt financings or restructurings, bank borrowings or other
sources of financing.  However, the Company has a limited number
of authorized shares of common stock available for issuance and
additional funding may not be available on favorable terms or at
all.  If additional funds are raised by issuing equity
securities, substantial dilution to existing shareholders may
result.  If the Company fails to obtain additional capital when
needed, it may be required to delay, scale back, or eliminate
some or all of its research and development programs and may be
forced to cease operations, liquidate its assets and possibly
seek bankruptcy protection.

entered into an employment agreement with David Bailey, the
Company's interim Chief Executive Officer and member of the
Company's board of directors.  The Employment Agreement is
effective as of July 9, 2012.  Mr. Bailey's Employment Agreement
provides, among other things, that:
    
   * The term of the Employment Agreement began on July 9, 2012,
     and expires Jan. 9, 2013, unless terminated earlier per its
     terms or extended by mutual agreement of the parties for up
     to no more than an additional six months.

   * Mr. Bailey's base salary is $62,500 per month.

   * With respect to the second half of the Company's 2012 fiscal
     year, Mr. Bailey is eligible to receive a target cash bonus
     of $300,000 under the Company's Executive Bonus Plan, subject

Mt. Laurel, New Jersey-based Central European Distribution
Corporation is one of the world's largest vodka producers and
Central and Eastern Europe's largest integrated spirit beverages
business with its primary operations in Poland, Russia and
Hungary.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2012, showed
US$2.033 billion in total assets, US$1.674 billion in total
liabilities, and stockholders' equity of US$358.45 million.

According to the regulatory filing, "[C]ertain credit and
factoring facilities are coming due in 2012, which the Company
expects to renew.  Furthermore, our Convertible Senior Notes are
due on March 15, 2013.  Our current cash on hand, estimated cash
from operations and available credit facilities will not be
sufficient to make the repayment on Convertible Notes and, unless
the transaction with Russian Standard Corporation is completed as
scheduled, the Company may default on them.  The Company's cash
flow forecasts include the assumption that certain credit and
factoring facilities that are coming due in 2012 will be renewed
to manage working capital needs.  Moreover, the Company had a net
loss and significant impairment charges in 2011 and current
liabilities exceed current assets at March 31, 2012.  These
conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern unless the transaction with Russian
Standard is completed as scheduled."

Ernst & Young Audit sp. z o.o., in Warsaw, Poland, expressed
substantial doubt about Central European's ability to continue as

certain of the Company's credit and factoring facilities are
coming due in 2012 and will need to be renewed to manage its
working capital needs.

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 10, 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services kept on CreditWatch with negative implications its 'CCC+'
long-term corporate credit rating on U.S.-based Central European
Distribution Corp. (CEDC), the parent company of Poland-based
vodka manufacturer CEDC International sp. z o.o.

"The CreditWatch status reflects our view that uncertainties
remain related to CEDC's ongoing accounting review and that
CEDC's liquidity could further and substantially weaken if there
was a breach of covenants which could lead to the acceleration of
the payment of the 2016 notes, upon receipt of a written notice
of 25% or more of the noteholders," S&P said.


CENTURY ALUMINUM: S&P Retains 'B' Issuer Credit Rating
------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has revised its outlook on Big
Rivers Electric Corp., Ky., (BREC) and Ohio County, Ky.'s $83.3
million pollution control refunding revenue bonds, series 2010A
(Big Rivers Electric Corp. Project) issued for Big Rivers' benefit
to negative from stable. "At the same time, Standard & Poor's
affirmed its 'BBB-' issuer credit rating on the cooperative and
the issue-level rating on the Ohio County bonds," S&P said.

"The outlook revision reflects our concerns about the strength and
stability of the utility's revenue stream following its leading
customer's issuance of a 12-month notice to terminate its power
contract with BREC," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst David
Bodek. "The notice covers Century Aluminum Co.'s (B/Stable/--)
Hawesville, Ky., smelter. During the 12 months, Century is
required to pay a base energy charge that covers its share of Big
Rivers' fixed and variable costs. If it does not operate the plant
during the notice period, it must still pay its share of fixed
costs. BREC has accepted the termination notice."

"Before sending its termination notice, Century claimed that its
Hawesville smelting facilities require significant electric rate
concessions to remain viable. Although the smelting plant has been
operating at levels that exceeded its threshold electric contract
requirements, the company cited sharp declines in aluminum prices
and BREC's electric rates as factors that are degrading its
Hawesville facilities' profitability. The utility did not accept
the requested concessions, because its nonsmelter customers would
have to bear the $110 million in concessions Century sought for
itself and the utility's other smelter customer, Rio Tinto Alcan
Inc. (Alcan; A-/Stable/A-2). That smelter is not projecting
closing its Sebree facilities in BREC's service territory," S&P
said.

"Century and Alcan represented two-thirds of BREC's 2011 megawatt-
hour (MWh) sales to members, excluding nonmember sales, and about
half of energy sales to members and nonmembers. Century accounted
for about 30% of the utility's 2011 operating revenues and Alcan,
24%. About 80% of BREC's 2011 electric sales were to members and
it sold the balance of its output principally in competitive
wholesale markets. We view the pending loss of Century as having
the potential to convert substantial amounts of the utility's
generation capacity into surplus. 'Also, the departure could shift
to BREC's remaining customers costs that Century historically
paid," Mr. Bodek added.

"Henderson, Ky.-based Big Rivers is a generation and transmission
cooperative that produces and procures electricity for sale to
three distribution cooperative members and their 112,900 retail
customers. One member, Kenergy Corp., serves the two smelters. In
2011, Kenergy's 9.4 million MWh sales were 8x greater than the sum
of the other two members' MWh sales. About 86% of Kenergy's 2011
MWh sales were to industrial customers. Nearly three-quarters of
its sales were to the two smelters. They accounted for more than
70% of the company's operating revenues. BREC's other member
distribution cooperatives--Jackson Purchase Energy and Meade
County Rural Electric Cooperative--principally serve residential
customers," S&P said.

"The negative outlook reflects our view that the largest
customer's decision to close facilities after failing to win rate
concessions could degrade BREC's financial performance and credit
quality during our two-year outlook horizon. Although the utility
plans to file for rate relief, we view rate cases as presenting
uncertainty vis--vis the extent and timeliness of rate relief. We
will monitor the progress of the rate case to assess whether
further rating action is appropriate. The customer's notice could
also expose the utility to the vicissitudes of merchant markets
and creates the potential for substantial cost shifting to
remaining customers, who might resist such efforts or find that
reallocated costs are too onerous to absorb. If these risks,
whether in isolation or combination, weaken BREC's business risk
profile and erode financial metrics, including the strong debt
service coverage that compensated for business risks in recent
years, we could lower the ratings. We do not expect to raise the
rating during our outlook period," S&P said.


CHAMPION ENTERPRISES: Creditors' Suit vs. Credit Suisse Nixed
-------------------------------------------------------------
Jamie Santo at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a Delaware
bankruptcy judge on Thursday dismissed Champion Enterprises Inc.'s
unsecured creditors' claims against a Credit Suisse AG unit,
ruling the bank's breach of a $187 million contract hadn't led to
Champion's downfall or caused any provable damages to the now-
defunct homebuilder's unsecured creditors.

Brought by Champion's official committee of unsecured creditors as
an adversary complaint in its 2009 bankruptcy case, the suit
claimed that Credit Suisse's Cayman Islands branch had breached a
$187 million credit agreement between the parties, according to
Bankruptcy Law360.

to sell its domestic and international operations.  An investor
group consisting of affiliates of Centerbridge Partners, L.P., MAK
Capital Fund LP and Sankaty Advisors, LLC invested $50 million in
new capital to support the operations and growth initiatives of
the new company.  The transaction was supported by a group of
Champion's existing lenders who, together with the lead investors,
agreed to exchange 100% of existing debt under Champion's pre-
petition and DIP senior secured credit agreements for equity in
the new company and a $40 million senior secured five year note.

Champion's bankruptcy case has been renamed CEI Liquidation
Estates following the closing of the sale.


CHINA MEDICAL: Seeks U.S. Recognition of Cayman Proceeding
----------------------------------------------------------
China Medical Technologies Inc., a maker of diagnostic products,
filed a Chapter 15 bankruptcy petition in New York to locate money
fraudulently transferred by its principals.

The Debtor, which has been taken over by a trustee, is undergoing
corporate winding-up proceedings before the Grand Court of the
Cayman Islands.  Kenneth M. Krys, the joint official liquidator,
wants U.S. courts to recognize the Cayman proceeding as the
"foreign main proceeding"

CMED's sole asset is its ownership of 100% of the shares of CMED
Technologies Ltd., a British Virgin Islands corporation.  CMED
Technologies is itself is a holding company for a group of BVI and
Hong Kong subsidiaries that, prior to February 2012, had 100%
ownership of three operating companies in the PRC that developed,
manufactured and marketed advanced medical technology.

Following entry of the winding up order, CMED has engaged in the
business of collecting its assets and preparing for an orderly
liquidation under the direction of the liquidators.  The Debtor is
estimated to have $100 million to $500 million in liabilities,
according to the Chapter 15 petition filed Aug. 31.

The liquidator claim that in the latter part of 2011, CMED's
former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Wu Xiaodong,
implemented a plan to divert value from CMED and its creditors by
causing CMED to default on notes in the aggregate principal amount
of $426 million and stripping CMED of its assets through
undisclosed, unauthorized and fraudulent transfers to his
associates and family members.

In February 2012, without any notice to shareholders or creditors,
Mr. Wu caused the transfer of 60% of the equity ownership of the
CMED Operating Companies to two PRC companies.  The consideration
purportedly received by CMED appears to be "grossly inadequate and
far below the actual value of the ownership interests," the
liquidators claimed.

"Despite extensive searches by the Liquidators in the PRC, the
Liquidators have been unable to locate any of the funds
purportedly paid by the Transferee Companies or even to establish
that any of those funds ever reached CMED," the liquidators
admitted in court filings.

"To date, the Liquidators have been unable to locate any other
CMED assets anywhere in the world outside the Cayman Islands," the
liquidators added.

Chapter 15 helps shield a foreign company from U.S. lawsuits and
creditor claims while the company continues the reorganization
process abroad.

CMED is subject to several lawsuits filed in the United States
District Court for the Southern District of New York, in which the
plaintiffs allege violations of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934.  On April 2, 2012, the lawsuits were consolidated into an
action entitled In re CMED Securities Liquidation, 11 Civ. 9297
(KBF).  On June 1, 2012, CMED filed a motion to dismiss the
Securities Class Action. Briefing on the motion to dismiss the
Securities Class Action is to be completed on August 31, and the
court has scheduled a status conference in the action for
September 14.

CMED's unsecured debt includes $276 million in 4% senior
convertible notes due in 2013; and $150 million in 6.25%
convertible senior notes due in 2016; both governed by Cayman law
and mostly held by Americans.

The winding-up proceedings in the Cayman Islands were commenced
after the indenture trustee for the notes, at the direction of
holders of over 50% of the principal amount of the notes, filed
the winding-up petition June 15, 2012.  Mr. Krys and Cosimo
Borrelli were named liquidators.

Bloomberg News reports that the company's American depositary
receipts fell 68% to $3.50 in August following a two-week
suspension by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which
questioned information accuracy.  The shares fell 15% in over-the-
counter trading to $2.90 in New York Aug. 31.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

The Company said in its quarterly report for the period ended
March 31, 2012, that its ability to restructure or refinance the
debt will depend on the condition of the capital markets and the
Company's financial condition at that time.  Any refinancing of
the Company's debt could be at higher interest rates and increase
debt service obligations and may require the Company and its
subsidiaries to comply with more onerous covenants, which could
further restrict the Company's business operations.  The terms of
existing or future debt instruments may restrict the Company from
adopting some of these alternatives.  These alternative measures
may not be successful and may not permit the Company or its
subsidiaries to meet scheduled debt service obligations.  If the
Company and its subsidiaries cannot make scheduled payments on
indebtedness, the Company or its subsidiaries, as applicable, will
be in default under one or more of the debt agreements and, as a
result the Company could be forced into bankruptcy or liquidation.

                           *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter said on Feb. 10, 2012, Fitch Ratings
has affirmed the 'CCC' Issuer Default Rating of Clear Channel
Communications, Inc., and the 'B' IDR of Clear Channel Worldwide
Holdings, Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Clear
Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc., Clear Channel's 89% owned outdoor
advertising subsidiary.  The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Fitch's ratings concerns center on the company's highly leveraged
capital structure, with significant maturities in 2014 and 2016;
the considerable and growing interest burden that pressures free
cash flow; technological threats and secular pressures in radio
broadcasting; and the company's exposure to cyclical advertising
revenue.  The ratings are supported by the company's leading
position in both the outdoor and radio industries, as well as the
positive fundamentals and digital opportunities in the outdoor
advertising space.

      determine if an adjustment of the monthly fee is appropriate
      on a go forward basis.

  (b) Reimbursement for Mr. Speer's reasonable out-of-pocket
      expenses incurred in connection with this assignment, such
      as travel, lodging, duplicating, messenger and telephone
      charges. All fees and expenses will be billed and payable on
      a monthly basis.

The payments will be subject to the Court's subsequent approval as
part of the normal interim fee application process approximately
every 120 days and in any event subject to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 331.
Mr. Speer will provide general narratives of services provided and
itemize expenses incurred as CRO as part of his fee applications.

Although they do not propose to retain Mr. Speer under 11 U.S.C.
Sec. 327, the Debtors attest that neither Mr. Speer nor his law
firm holds or represents and interest adverse to the Debtors'
estates and is a "disinterested person" as the term is defined in

landscaping purposes, as well as the associated farming of citrus,
dates, and other crops.  The Debtors presently own more than
250,000 palm trees in various stages of the tree-growth cycle.
Cocopah has 250 full-time salaried employees, and taps an
additional 50 to 250 contract laborers depending on the season.
Revenue in 2010 was $23 million, down from $57 million in 2006.

Judge Eileen W. Hollowell presides over the case.  The Debtors'
counsel are Craig D. Hansen, Esq., and Bradley A. Cosman, Esq., at
Squire Sanders (US) LLP.

The petitions were signed by Darl E. Young, authorized
representative.

Attorneys for Rabobank, N.A., are Robbin L. Itkin, Esq., and Emily
C. Ma, Esq., at Steptoe & Johnson LLP, and S. Cary Forrester,
Esq., at Forrester & Worth, PLLC.

CONSOLIDATED TRANSPORT: Three Affiliates Also Seek Chapter 11
-------------------------------------------------------------
Tandem Transport Corp. and two affiliates sought Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. N.D. Ind. Case Nos. 12-33135 to 12-33137) on
Aug. 31, 2012.  Their parent, Consolidated Transport Systems,
Inc., sought Chapter 11 protection two weeks earlier.

Consolidated and Tandem each estimated $10 million to $50 million
in assets and liabilities.  Transport Investment estimated less
than $50,000 in assets and up to $50 million in liabilities.  Two
other entities that filed are Transport Investment Corporation and
Tandem Eastern, Inc.

The Debtors have provided for-hire freight services throughout the
United States since 1945.  The largest portion of the business
consists of hauling building materials, with the balance
consisting of transporting steel and other miscellaneous freight
such as stone, salt, and machinery.  The bulk of the Debtors'
loads are received and delivered east of the Mississippi River,
although the Debtors have general commodities authority for the
lower 48 states.  The Debtors have intrastate authority for the
states of Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan,
Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and Texas. To
effectively manage their wide base of operations, the Debtors
utilize terminals in (1) Chattanooga, Tennessee; (2) Gaylord,
Michigan; (3) Vanlue, Ohio; and (4) Savannah, Georgia.

The Debtors' fiscal year 2011 revenue exceeded $50 million.

The Debtors operate as a combined enterprise.  Consolidated owns
the Debtors' fleet of approximately 275 tractors and 330 trailers.
It also employs the Debtors' office staff of 66 employees.  The
Debtors' corporate headquarters is located in Michigan City,
Indiana while their executive office is located in St. Louis,
Michigan.  Transport is the operating company which provides
logistics to customers and also brokers freight.  Eastern employs
the Debtors' 246 drivers, while Investment employs the Debtors' 10
mechanics.

Consolidated Transport said in court filings that given the
Debtors' industry and customer base, it was inevitable that they
would be adversely affected by the housing bubble and the economic
recession.  Even so, the Debtors operated with a net income
through fiscal year 2008, but succumbed to the economic malaise
and experienced negative cash flow in 2009.  Through proactive
management, the Debtors narrowed their losses in 2010 and in 2011
continued to cut expenses and maximize revenue.  Despite these
largely successful steps, the depletion of the Debtors' cash
reserves due to 2009 and 2010 has strained the Debtors' cash flow,
and as a result the Debtors have begun to fall out of terms with
their equipment lenders.

Consolidated initiated its chapter 11 proceeding to prevent any
actions by equipment lenders such as repossession of equipment
that would threaten the Debtors' operations and viability while
they restructure their respective operations. Transport,
Investment and Eastern filed their chapter 11 proceedings to give
the Debtors the necessary breathing room provided by the
Bankruptcy Code, as well as a single forum, to allow them to
effectively restructure their operations.

The Debtors are seeking an expedited hearing on their request to
use cash collateral, pay prepetition wages, establish payment of
utilities, maintain existing bank accounts, and assume a fuel
agreement.  The Debtors are also seeking joint administration of
their Chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors said that due to the highly competitive nature of
their businesses as well as the fact that the nation's economic
condition has forced many employees to live paycheck to paycheck,
it is critical that the Debtors be authorized to pay pre-petition
wages and related items to their employees.

As an integrated trucking enterprise with national customers, the
Debtors consume significant amounts of fuel in their day-to-day
operations. The Debtors have an agreement with Pilot that allow
their drivers to purchase fuel on credit at any Pilot truck stop
nationwide. Furthermore, Pilot offers the Debtors a bulk discount
due to the amount of fuel purchased by the Debtors from Pilot.
Because finding a national fuel provider like Pilot who provides
fuel on credit, at a discount, and with the ability to purchase
maintenance service items is highly unlikely, and such benefits
are highly advantageous to the Debtors, the Debtors are seeking to
assume their agreement with Pilot.

CONTEC HOLDINGS: Plans Fast Dash Through Bankruptcy
---------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley at Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that
Bain Capital Partners' Contec Holdings Ltd. plans a speedy trip
through bankruptcy with a debt-for-equity swap that will displace
the private-equity firm and leave banks in charge, attorneys said
at a court hearing Aug. 30.

As reported in the Aug. 31, 2012 edition of the TCR, the Debtors
are seeking a combined hearing on the Plan and Disclosure
Statement.  Contec anticipates completing the Chapter 11 process
within the next 60 days.

The Debtors' prepetition long-term debt obligations total
$360 million.  About $201 million of that amount represents senior
secured obligations to lenders led by Barclays Bank PLC, as
administrative agent, collateral agent, issuing lender and swing
line lender.  There is also $159 million owed on account of
unsecured subordinated notes under a note purchase agreement with
American Capital Financial Services, Inc. as administrative agent,
and American Capital and certain of its affiliates ("ACAS"), as
note purchasers.

The Debtors commenced solicitation of votes prepetition.  Over one
half of the prepetition secured lenders collectively holding at
least two-thirds in amount of outstanding obligations under their
senior credit agreement have voted to accept the Plan.  In
addition, all holders of Subordinated Notes claims have voted to
accept the Prepackaged Plan.  Parties still have until Sept. 24,
2012, at 1:00 p.m. to submit their ballots.

The Debtors expect to complete the bankruptcy proceedings
according to this timetable:

    Event                                   Date
    -----                                   ----
    Voting Record Date                  Aug. 23, 2012
    Commencement of Solicitation        Aug. 23, 2012
    Petition Date                       Aug. 29, 2012
    Voting Deadline                     Sep. 24, 2012
    Mailing of Combined Hearing Notice  Aug. 31, 2012
    Filing of Plan Supplement           Sep. 18, 2012
    Objection Deadline                  Sep. 21, 2012
    Reply Date (if any)                 Sep. 25, 2012
    Combined Hearing                    Sep. 28, 2012

Under Plan, senior lenders owed $201 million will recover 14.7% to
24.6%.  They will receive on the effective date $27.5 million in
new second lien notes and 80% of reorganized Contec Holdings.

Holders of general unsecured claims estimated to total $10 million
to $11 million are unimpaired and will recover 100%.  The claims
will be reinstated or paid in full in cash.  The senior lenders
have agreed to carve out a portion of their collateral to ensure
the payment of general unsecured trade claims.

Holders of subordinated note claims totaling $159 will receive on
the effective date a pro-rata share of warrants and $25,000.

Holders of existing equity interests in CHL LTD, the parent, won't
receive anything.

CPI CORP: Incurs $35.2 Million Net Loss in July 21 Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------
CPI Corp. filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss of
$35.23 million on $53.44 million of net sales for the 12 weeks
ended July 21, 2012, compared with a net loss of $6.29 million on
$70.83 million of net sales for the 12 weeks ended July 23, 2011.

For the 24 weeks ended July 21, 2012, the Company reported a net
loss of $39.93 million on $123.24 million of net sales, compared
with a net loss of $5.63 million on $159.46 million of net sales
for the 24 weeks ended July 23, 2011.

The Company's balance sheet at July 21, 2012, showed
$61.04 million in total assets, $159.63 million in total
liabilities, and a $98.59 million total stockholders' deficit.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"Management is implementing plans to improve liquidity through
improvements to results from operations, store closures, cost
reductions and operational alternatives," the Company said in its
quarterly report for the period ended July 21, 2012.  "However,
there can be no assurance that we will be successful with our
plans or that our future results of operations will improve.  If
sales trends do not improve, our available liquidity from cash
flows from operations will be materially adversely affected.
There can be no assurance that we will be able to improve cash
flows from operations, or that we will be able to comply with the
terms of the Second Amendment.  Therefore, there can be no
guarantee that our existing sources of cash and our future cash
flows from operations will be adequate to meet our liquidity
requirements, including cash requirements that are due under the
Credit Agreement and that are needed to fund our business
operations.  If we are unable to address our liquidity shortfall
or comply with the terms of our Credit Agreement, as amended, then
our business and operating results would be materially adversely
affected, and the Company may then need to curtail its business
operations, reorganize its capital structure, or liquidate."

The Company further stated that should it not be able to sell its
business by Dec. 31, 2012, it could be forced to seek additional
financing, which may not be available, curtail its business
operations or reorganize its capital structure, or be forced into
bankruptcy.

qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
period ended Feb. 4, 2012, noting that the Company has suffered a
significant loss from operations, is not in compliance with the

capital deficiency, all of which raise substantial doubt about its

CYCLONE POWER: Closes $250,000 Debt Financing with Brio Capital
---------------------------------------------------------------
Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc., closed a $250,000 debt financing
with Brio Capital LP, comprised of a Securities Purchase
Agreement, Secured Promissory Note and Warrant.  The 12-month Note
bears a 9% Original Issuance Discount, making the principal
payable at maturity $272,500.  There is no other interest payable
under the Note, unless the Company is in default.

The Note is convertible into shares of the Company's common stock
at a price of $.15 per share, subject to standard anti-dilution
and price protection provisions should the Company issue shares at
a lower price, except for certain issuance exemptions specifically
set forth in the Note.  The Company has a pre-payment obligation
upon: (1) receipt of future payments from the U.S. Army under the
Company's development contract, provided that no more than 50% of
such payments will be applied to the early re-payment of the
Notes; and (2) the closing of at least $500,000 in equity funding,
provided that no more than 10% of that financing will be applied
to the early re-payment of the Notes.

The Warrant attached to the Note allow the investor to purchase a
number of shares of common stock of the Company equal to 40% of
the Note amount, at an exercise price equal to $.20 per share for
five years from issuance.  Brio received a Warrant to purchase
726,667 shares in this deal.  The Warrant may be exercised on a
"cashless" basis, and is subject to the same price protection as
the Note, provided however, any revised exercise price of the
Warrant will be 125% of any revised conversion price of the Note.
The Warrant and underlying common stock are restricted under Rule
144.  The securities were issued pursuant to an exemption from
registration under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.

DELTA PETROLEUM: Plan Consummated, Emerges as Par Petroleum
-----------------------------------------------------------
Delta Petroleum Corporation, now renamed Par Petroleum Corporation
disclosed that as of Sept. 3 it has consummated its third amended
plan of reorganization with Laramie Energy II, LLC as the sponsor.
The implementation of the Plan, as confirmed by the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court on Aug. 16, 2012, marks the conclusion of the
Company's financial restructuring, and the emergence of Delta and
eight subsidiaries (including Amber Resources Company of Colorado
from Chapter 11.  Delta and Amber's previously outstanding common
stock has been cancelled, and will no longer be traded.  In
conjunction with the reorganization, Delta has been renamed Par
Petroleum Corporation.

At closing, Laramie and Par Petroleum contributed their respective
assets in Mesa and Garfield counties, Colorado, to form a new
joint venture called Piceance Energy, LLC.

Laramie and Par Petroleum hold 66.66% and 33.34% ownership
interests in Piceance Energy, respectively.  Subsequently,
Piceance Energy entered into a new $140 million credit agreement,
and distributed approximately $74.1 million to Par Petroleum and
$24.8 million to Laramie.  The distributions are subject to
adjustment per the joint venture transaction effective date of
July 31, 2012.

As part of the Company's reorganization, $265 million in unsecured
notes were converted into equity.  The Zell Credit Opportunities
Master Fund, L.P., an affiliate of Equity Group Investments, and
clients of Whitebox Advisors played a leading role in the
restructuring process and are now the two largest equity holders
in Par Petroleum.  Affiliates of the two firms are also the two
largest lenders under Par Petroleum's new $30 million delayed draw
term facility (the "exit facility"), $13 million of which has been
drawn down.  Par Petroleum will use the $74.1 million distribution
and the exit facility to pay bankruptcy expenses, secured debt,
the debtor in possession loan, priority claims, and to fund two
litigation trusts.

Following the closing, Par Petroleum retained its interest in the
Point Arguello unit offshore California, other miscellaneous
assets and certain tax attributes, including significant net
operating losses.  As part of consummating the Plan, Par Petroleum
issued new common stock for distribution to holders of allowed
prepetition claims.  The new common stock will be publicly traded
on the over-the-counter (OTC) market.  Delta's shareholders prior
to Chapter 11 emergence will not receive any consideration under
the Plan.

DELTA PETROLEUM: Had $470 Million Net Loss in 2011
--------------------------------------------------
Delta Petroleum Corporation filed its annual report on Form 10-K,
reporting a net loss of $470.0 million on $63.9 million of total
revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, compared with a net loss
of $194.0 million on $61.0 million of total revenue for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2010.

Loss from continuing operations increased from a loss of
$104.7 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2010, to a loss of
$483.2 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011.  According to the
Company, the increase was primarily due to $420.4 million in dry
hole costs and impairments recognized during 2011.

The Company's balance sheet at Dec. 31, 2011, showed
$387.9 million in total assets, $337.7 million in total

                           *     *     *

In early April 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its
corporate credit rating on Cary, N.C.-based Dex One Corp. and
related entities to 'CCC' from 'SD' (selective default). The
rating outlook is
negative.

"At the same time, we affirmed our issue-level rating on Dex Media
East Inc.'s $672 million outstanding term loan, Dex Media West
Inc.'s $594 million outstanding term loan, and R.H. Donnelley
Inc.'s $866 million outstanding term loan due 2014 at 'D'. The
recovery rating on these loans remains at '5', indicating our
expectation of modest (10% to 30%) recovery for lenders in the
event of a payment default," S&P said.

"The company's March 9, 2012 amendment allows for ongoing subpar
repurchases of its term debt until 2013, as long as certain
conditions are met. Additionally, on March 22, 2012, the company
announced the commencement of a cash tender offer to purchase a
portion of its senior subordinated notes due in 2017 below par.
The term loan and subordinated notes are trading at a significant
discount to their par values, providing the company an economic
incentive to pursue a subpar buyback. We believe that these
circumstances suggest a high probability of future subpar
buybacks, which are tantamount to default under our criteria," S&P
said.

"The 'CCC' corporate credit rating reflects our view that Dex
One's business will remain under pressure given the unfavorable
outlook for print directory advertising. We view the company's
rising debt leverage, low debt trading levels, weak operating
outlook, and steadily declining discretionary cash flow as
indications of financial distress. As such, we continue to assess
the company's financial risk profile as 'highly leveraged,' based
on our criteria. We regard the company's business risk profile as
'vulnerable,' based on significant risks of continued structural
and cyclical decline in the print directory sector. Structural
risks include increased competition from online and other
distribution channels as small business advertising expands across
a greater number of marketing channels," S&P said.


DIALOGIC INC: Appeals NASDAQ's Decision to Delist Securities
------------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed, on Feb. 28, 2012, Dialogic Inc. received
a deficiency letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of
The NASDAQ Stock Market, notifying it that, for the prior 30
consecutive business days, the bid price for the Company's common
stock had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for
continued listing on The NASDAQ Global Market pursuant to NASDAQ
Listing Rule 5450(a)(1), and that it would be given 180 calendar
days, or until Aug. 27, 2012, to regain compliance with the Bid
Price Rule.  On Aug. 28, 2012, the Company received a Staff
Determination Letter from Staff notifying the Company that it has
not regained compliance with the Bid Price Rule, and is not
eligible for a second 180 calendar day compliance period.

The Aug. 28, 2012, Staff Determination Letter stated that the
Company's securities will be scheduled for delisting from The
NASDAQ Global Market and will be suspended at the opening of
business on Sept. 6, 2012, unless the Company requests an appeal
of Staff's decision to the Hearings Panel in accordance with the
procedures set forth in the NASDAQ Listing Rule 5800 Series.

Accordingly, the Company has requested a hearing before the Panel;
this request has already been granted, and a hearing has been
scheduled for Oct. 4, 2012.  Moreover, under the NASDAQ Listing
Rules, and as has already been confirmed to the Company, this
request for a hearing has automatically stayed the delisting of
the Company's common stock pending the issuance of a determination
by the Panel.  In addition, the Company has scheduled a special
meeting of its stockholders on Sept. 14, 2012, to approve a
proposed amendment to the Company's certificate of incorporation
to effect a reverse split of the Company's outstanding shares of
common stock by a ratio of five to one, which is expected to bring
the Company into compliance with the Bid Price Rule in advance of
its scheduled appeal hearing.  However, there can be no assurance
that the Company's appeal would be successful.

                          About Dialogic

Milpitas, Calif.-based Dialogic Inc. provides communications
platforms and technology that enable developers and service
providers to build and deploy innovative applications without
concern for the complexities of the communication medium or
network.

The Company reported a net loss of $54.81 million in 2011,
following a net loss of $46.71 million in 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2012, showed
$140.76 million in total assets, $188 million in total liabilities
and a $47.23 million total stockholders' deficit.

                        Bankruptcy Warning

The Company said in its 2011 annual report that in the event of an
acceleration of the Company's obligations under the Term Loan
Agreement or Revolving Credit Agreement and its failure to pay the
amounts that would then become due, the Revolving Credit Lender or
Term Lenders could seek to foreclose on the Company's assets.  As
a result of this, or if the Company's stockholders do not approve
the Private Placement and the Notes become due and payable, the
Company would likely need to seek protection under the provisions
of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code or the Company's affiliates might be
required to seek protection under the provisions of applicable
bankruptcy codes.  In that event, the Company could seek to
reorganize its business, or the Company or a trustee appointed by
the court could be required to liquidate the Company's assets.


DYNEGY HOLDINGS: Files Revised List of Assumed Contracts & Leases
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Dynegy Inc. and Dynegy Holdings, LLC, filed with the Bankruptcy
Court a revised schedule of Assumed and Assigned Executory
Contracts and Unexpired Leases, a copy of which is available for
free at http://is.gd/Gh6j5x

                            About Dynegy

Through its subsidiaries, Houston, Texas-based Dynegy Inc.
(NYSE: DYN) -- http://www.dynegy.com/-- produces and sells
electric energy, capacity and ancillary services in key U.S.
markets.  The power generation portfolio consists of approximately
12,200 megawatts of baseload, intermediate and peaking power
plants fueled by a mix of natural gas, coal and fuel oil.

Dynegy Holdings LLC and four other affiliates of Dynegy Inc.
sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case
No. 11-38111) Nov. 7, 2011, to implement an agreement with a
group of investors holding more than $1.4 billion of senior notes
issued by Dynegy's direct wholly-owned subsidiary, Dynegy
Holdings, regarding a framework for the consensual restructuring
of more than $4.0 billion of obligations owed by DH.  If this
restructuring support agreement is successfully implemented, it
will significantly reduce the amount of debt on the Company's
consolidated balance sheet.  Dynegy Holdings disclosed assets of
$13.77 billion and debt of $6.18 billion.

Dynegy Inc. on July 6, 2012, filed a voluntary petition to
reorganize under Chapter 11 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-36728) to
effectuate a merger with Dynegy Holdings, pursuant to Holdings'
Chapter 11 plan.

A settlement, which has already been approved by the bankruptcy
court, provides for Dynegy Inc. and Holdings to merge and for the
administrative claim granted to Dynegy Inc. in the Holdings
Chapter 11 case to be transferred out of Dynegy Inc. for the
benefit of its shareholders.

Dynegy Holdings and its affiliated debtor-entities are represented
in the Chapter 11 proceedings by Sidley Austin LLP as their
reorganization counsel.  Dynegy and its other subsidiaries are

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 29, 2012, creditors holding
approximately $3.5 billion of claims, or over 99% of the value of
claims that voted, were in favor of the Debtors' Joint Plan of
Reorganization.  A hearing to consider confirmation of the plan of
reorganization is scheduled for Sep. 5, 2012.


EATON MOERY: Delta Closes Business; Seeks Chapter 7 Conversion
--------------------------------------------------------------
Kait8.com reports that the Chapter 11 case of Delta Environmental,
owned by Eaton Moery Environmental, has been converted to a
Chapter 7 liquidation.

The report relates Delta Environmental closed on Aug. 31, 2012,
after the company filed a motion to convert its bankruptcy case.

According to the report, the company has been at odds with the
city of Trumann over a trash pickup contract since 2010.
Attorneys and representatives for the city of Trumann and Delta
Environmental appeared in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in January
regarding disputes over commercial trash pickup and payments, the
report adds.

The report relates Trumann Mayor Sheila Walters said the city
maintained Delta Environmental had not fulfilled a contractual
obligation to pick up trash.  Delta Environmental argued the city
has not made appropriate monthly payments.

The report recounts in August 2010, the city passed a resolution
to cancel the contract, but once Delta filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy, an "automatic stay" was granted, which prevents civil
action from being taken against an entity without permission of
bankruptcy court.

The report relates previous attempts by the city to get out of the
contract failed.

The report notes the residential side of the contract was
dissolved in February 2012.  In December 2011, a settlement was
reached requiring the city to pay Delta $6,000 in a timely manner,
give an updated list of clients and a provision to cancel the
contract.

earnings release for 1Q12 (ended May 31, 2011) including
additional disclosure related to the pending sale of controlling
interests in three radio stations.  The sale of the majority
ownership to GCTR will generate estimated net proceeds of
approximately $100 million to $120 million, after taxes, fees and
related expenses.  Emmis will retain a minority equity interest in
the operations of the three stations and Moody's expects senior
secured debt to be reduced resulting in improved credit metrics.


EMMONS-SHEEPSHEAD: Files for Chapter 11 in Brooklyn
---------------------------------------------------
Emmons-Sheepshead Bay Development LLC, the owner of 49 unsold
condominium units on Emmons Avenue in Brooklyn, filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-46321) on Aug. 30, 2012, in
Brooklyn.

The Debtor said the property is worth $14 million.  It has $32.6
million in total liabilities.  It owes TD Bank N.A. $31 million,
secured by first, second and third priority liens on the property.

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that according to court filings, the filing was
precipitated by foreclosure.  A slowdown in sales "completely
deprived it of cash flow," the company said in a court filing.

EPICEPT CORP: Three Directors Resign; Current CEO Named to Board
----------------------------------------------------------------
EpiCept Corporation announced that Collier Smyth, Gerhard Waldheim
and Wayne Yetter have resigned from the Company's Board of
Directors, effective Aug. 28, 2012.  Their resignations were not
as a result of any disagreement with management.

In addition, Robert W. Cook has been appointed to EpiCept's Board,
effective Aug. 28, 2012.  Mr. Cook has served as EpiCept's Chief
Financial Officer and Senior Vice President, Finance and
Administration since April 2004 and is currently serving as
interim President and CEO of EpiCept.

Alan W. Dunton, M.D., Non-Executive Chairman of the Board of
EpiCept, commented, "On behalf of EpiCept and its shareholders, I
would like to thank Collier, Gerhard and Wayne for their many
contributions to the Company and its Board of Directors.  We
mutually agreed that a reduction in the size of our Board was
appropriate at this time as the Company is singularly focused on
successfully concluding a strategic transaction in line with the
objectives we previously outlined.  We will not look to return the
membership of the Board to its previous size at this time."

EpiCept engaged SunTrust Robinson Humphrey in January 2012 to
assist in exploring strategic alternatives to maximize the
commercial opportunity of AmiKet for the treatment of CIPN
following taxane-based therapy.  The engagement is focused on the
identification and implementation of a strategy designed to
optimize AmiKet's value for the Company's stockholders, which
includes the evaluation of potential transactions involving the
sale of the Company.

On Aug. 27, 2012, the Company's Board of Directors increased the
compensation of Robert W. Cook.  Retroactive to his appointment as
Interim President and CEO on Aug. 20, 2012, Mr. Cook's annual
salary will be $400,000 per annum, with $300,000 per annum payable
currently and the balance deferred and payable (on a pro rata
basis) upon the completion of certain predetermined objectives,
and thereafter payable at the $400,000 per annum level.  Mr.
Cook's target cash bonus compensation will be 45% of his base
salary, the actual amount of which will be determined by the
Board.  Mr. Cook was also granted 100,000 Restricted Stock Units
under the Company's 2005 Equity Incentive Plan, with vesting upon
the achievement of certain predetermined objectives prior to
March 31, 2013.

EPICEPT CORP: Amends Loan and Security Agreement with MidCap
------------------------------------------------------------
EpiCept Corporation has amended the Company's Loan and Security
Agreement with MidCap Financial, LLC, effective Aug. 27, 2012.

Pursuant to the terms of the amendment, EpiCept has made a
principal prepayment of $1.2 million, which approximates the
scheduled principal payments due under the Loan and Security
Agreement from Sept. 1, 2012, through Dec. 31, 2012.  As a result
of the prepayment, the current principal balance of the loan is
$4.1 million.  The next principal payment is due on Jan. 15, 2013,
and regularly scheduled monthly principal payments will commence
Feb. 1, 2013, until the scheduled maturity of the loan in March
2014.  The Company will continue to make monthly payments of
interest to the Lender as per the Loan and Security Agreement.

EpiCept also agreed, pursuant to the amendment, to maintain a cash
balance of $1.1 million in a bank account that is subject to the
security interest maintained by MidCap under the loan agreement.
Further, the Company has committed to signing a definitive
agreement, acceptable to MidCap, by Oct. 15, 2012, with respect to
a sale or partnering transaction and to consummate such a
transaction as soon as is practical but in any event no later than
Jan. 15, 2013.

"This amendment is consistent with our current plans to complete a
transaction and leaves us with cash availability similar to what
we had prior to the amendment," remarked Robert Cook, EpiCept
interim President and CEO.  "While we cannot be certain that an
acceptable transaction can be completed according to this
timetable or at all, we are intently focused on concluding a
transaction within the deadlines set forth in the amendment."

EpiCept engaged SunTrust Robinson Humphrey in January 2012 to
assist in exploring strategic alternatives to maximize the
commercial opportunity of AmiKet for the treatment of CIPN
following taxane-based therapy.  The engagement is focused on the
identification and implementation of a strategy designed to
optimize AmiKet's value for the Company's stockholders, which
includes the evaluation of potential transactions involving the
sale of the Company.  EpiCept is considering various transactions
to obtain additional cash resources to fund operations, including
the sale or licensing of assets and the sale of equity securities.
Current cash is anticipated to be sufficient to run operations
into the fourth quarter of 2012.  If EpiCept is unable to complete
a transaction or otherwise obtain funding on a timely basis, the
Company may default on its loans or be declared in default under
the Loan and Security Agreement, which would entitle the Lender to
sell the Company's intellectual property and other assets.

EVERGREEN ENERGY: Wins Court OK for Sale of Clean Coal Equipment
----------------------------------------------------------------
Liz Hoffman at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Evergreen Energy
Inc. on Thursday got a judge's nod to sell about $75,000 worth of
boiler parts and other assets to a subsidiary of a German shipping
company, continuing its Chapter 7 wind-down.

BLG Cargo Logistics GmbH & Co., which is already holding the
equipment at a warehouse in Germany, will buy it after the trustee
said shipping the 1,000-ton equipment to the U.S. wouldn't be in
the best interests of the estate, according to Bankruptcy Law360.

FRIENDFINDER NETWORKS: No Nov. 14 Deadline from Bondholders
-----------------------------------------------------------
FriendFinder Networks Inc., in response to an inaccurate article
posted on Bloomberg on Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012, clarified that it
is currently in compliance with, or has waivers for, all loan
covenants.

Although subsequently corrected, Bloomberg initially reported that
"Bondholders have given the Company until Nov. 14, 2012 to raise
cash..."  The Company said it has received no such demand or
notice from its bondholders.  FriendFinder maintains it was either
in compliance or had waivers for all of its debt covenants as of
June 30, 2012.

FriendFinder Networks further states that its first-lien notes do
not mature until September 2013 and that it is currently in
discussions with bondholders regarding options to refinance its
debt.

Herrick Feinstein LP serves as the Debtors' bankruptcy counsel.

The official committee of unsecured creditors has tapped the law
firm of Kelley Drye & Warren LLP as counsel.

The reorganization is being financed with a $5 million loan from

GATEHOUSE MEDIA: Bank Debt Trades at 69% Off in Secondary Market
----------------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which GateHouse Media,
Inc., is a borrower traded in the secondary market at 31.25 cents-
on-the-dollar during the week ended Friday, Aug. 31, a drop of
0.44 percentage points from the previous week according to data
compiled by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM Pricing and reported in The
Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 200 basis points above
LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan matures on Feb.
27, 2014, and carries Moody's Ca rating and Standard & Poor's CCC-
rating.  The loan is one of the biggest gainers and losers among
172 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more bids in
secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

                       About GateHouse Media

GateHouse Media, Inc. -- http://www.gatehousemedia.com/--

publishers of locally based print and online media in the United
States as measured by its 97 daily publications.  GateHouse Media
currently serves local audiences of more than 10 million per week
across 21 states through hundreds of community publications and
local Web sites.

Gatehouse Media, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $2.86 million on $128.76 million of total revenues for the
three months ended July 1, 2012, compared with a net loss of $5.06
million on $134.39 million of total revenues for the three months
ended June 26, 2011.

The Company reported a net loss of $16.23 million on $248.77
million of total revenues for the six months ended July 1, 2012,
compared with a net loss of $23.25 million on $254.21 million of
total revenues for the six months ended June 26, 2011.

The Company's balance sheet at July 1, 2012, showed $487.40
million in total assets, $1.31 billion in total liabilities and a
$823.09 million total stockholders' deficit.

According to the Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, the
Company's ability to make payments on its indebtedness as required
depends on its ability to generate cash flow from operations in
the future.  This ability, to a certain extent, is subject to
general economic, financial, competitive, legislative, regulatory
and other factors that are beyond the Company's control.


GREYSTONE LOGISTICS: Delays 2012 Form 10-K Due to Limited Staff
---------------------------------------------------------------
Greystone Logistics, Inc., notified the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission that it will be delayed in filing its annual
report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2012.  The
Company's limited personnel and resources have impaired its
ability to prepare and timely file its Annual Report.

The net income for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2012, is expected
to be approximately $2,774,000 compared to a net loss of
$(847,201) for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2011.

The net income to common shareholders for the fiscal year ended
May 31, 2012, is expected to be approximately $2,385,000, or $0.09
per share, compared to a net loss of $(770,095), or $(0.03) per
share, for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2011.

The net income for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2012, when
compared to the net loss for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2011,
is primarily related to an 18% increase in sales for fiscal year
2012 over fiscal year 2011 and the recognition of a tax benefit in
fiscal year 2012 in the amount of $585,000 due to net operating
loss carry-forwards from prior fiscal years.

The Company's board of directors elected a new director on May 5,
2012.  The Company did not file a corresponding Form 8-K.
Additional information about the election of the director will be
provided in the Company's upcoming Form 10-K.

HARVEST OPERATIONS: S&P Alters Ratings Outlook to Negative
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services revised its outlook on Calgary,
Alta.-based exploration and production company Harvest Operations
Corp. to negative from stable. "At the same time, Standard &
Poor's affirmed its 'BB-' long-term corporate credit and senior
unsecured debt ratings on the company. The '3' recovery rating on
the senior unsecured debt is unchanged. Harvest is owned by Korea
National Oil Corp. (KNOC; A/Stable/--)," S&P said.

"Since KNOC acquired Harvest in 2010, our analysis has expected
ongoing parental financial support to ensure debt levels remain
fairly stable as Harvest pursues its upstream growth initiatives,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michelle Dathorne. "The
recent increase in the company's balance-sheet debt and our
expectation of continued negative free cash flow generation will
cause debt to increase further without continued financial support
from its parent, KNOC," Ms. Dathorne added.

"Although we believe Harvest will maintain access to various
sources of external financing, specifically bank and public debt,
the increasing use of debt to bridge the expected negative free
cash flow generation we are forecasting as the company proceeds
with its upstream exploration and development plans will push its
cash flow protection metrics outside the ranges we believe are
appropriate for the 'BB-' rating," S&P said.

"The ratings on Harvest reflect Standard & Poor's view of the
company's below-average profitability, our expectations of
negative free cash flow generation during our 2012-2013 forecast
period, and the operational risks inherent in the company's
strategy to transform its upstream portfolio from a largely mature
conventional asset base to one focused on drill-bit-related
reserves and production growth. In our view, somewhat offsetting
these weaknesses are Harvest's upstream full-cycle cost profile,
which compares favorably with that of its rating category peers;
and the medium- and long-term growth prospects inherent in its
existing conventional and oil sands resources," S&P said.

"Harvest has operations in five core areas in the Western Canadian
Sedimentary Basin: southern, east-central, and western Alberta;
northern Alberta and British Columbia; and southeast Saskatchewan.
The company added a refining and marketing segment with the
October 2006 acquisition of North Atlantic Refining Ltd.," S&P
said.

"Although we believe Harvest will remain a strategic component in
KNOC's upstream medium-to-long-term growth objectives, we base our
ratings on Harvest's stand-alone credit profile, with our view of
KNOC's previous and prospective financial support incorporated in
our assessment of the company's financial risk profile," S&P said.

"The negative outlook reflects Standard & Poor's concern that
KNOC's ongoing financial support will not keep pace with Harvest's
negative free cash flow generation. We have assumed before that
Harvest's financial risk profile would remain fairly stable,
largely through ongoing financial support from parent KNOC as it
proceeded with its organic growth initiatives. In our view, KNOC's
equity support is a significant component in our assessment of
Harvest's financial risk profile, with consistent on-going
financial support needed to bridge the negative free cash flow
generation we are expecting for the company during our forecast
period. Since the second half of 2011, the company's cash flow
protection metrics have been deteriorating due to increasing debt
levels without an offsetting increase in operating cash flow. With
fully adjusted funds from operations (FFO)-to-debt at 16.3% at
June 30, 2012, and our expectation of negative free cash flow
generation in 2012 and 2013, as the company continues to pursue
its conventional and oil sands growth projects, we are forecasting
FFO-to-debt will weaken further during this period. We do not
expect Harvest's growth projects to generate incremental
production and cash flows before 2014, so we believe the company
will be unable to improve its cash flow protection metrics without
some form of financial support from its parent. If Harvest's fully
adjusted FFO-to-debt falls below 15% in 2013, we would lower the
ratings to 'B+'. Conversely, we would revise the outlook to stable
if Harvest were able to strengthen its financial metrics, such
that its fully adjusted FFO-to-debt moved back into the 20%-25%
range. Any subsequent positive rating action would be contingent
on Harvest's ability to expand its upstream operations while
maintaining a competitive full-cycle cost profile and moderate
cash flow protection measures. Specifically, if Harvest is able
to improve its FFO-to-debt to 40% or higher, we could raise the
ratings," S&P said.

JACKSONVILLE BANCORP: Posts $11.8 Million Net Loss in 2nd Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Jacksonville Bancorp, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form 10-
Q, reporting a net loss of $11.8 million on $5.1 million of net
interest income for the three months ended June 30, 2012, as
compared to net income of $1.0 million on $6.3 million of net
interest income for the same period of the prior year.

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company has a net loss
of $10.5 million on $10.4 million of net interest income, compared
with net income of $1.5 million on $12.2 million of net interest
income for the same period of 2011.

The net loss for the first six months of 2012 compared to net
income for the same period in 2011 was driven primarily by
increased provision for loan losses and OREO expenses and
decreased interest income on loans.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2012, showed
$583.0 million in total assets, $564.0 million in total
liabilities, and shareholders' equity of $19.0 million.

According to the regulatory filing, the Bank was adequately
capitalized at June 30, 2012.  Depository institutions that are no
longer "well capitalized" for bank regulatory purposes must
receive a waiver from the FDIC prior to accepting or renewing
brokered deposits.  The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
Improvement Act of 1991 ("FDICIA") generally prohibits a
depository institution from making any capital distribution
(including paying dividends) or paying any management fee to its
holding company, if the depository institution would thereafter be
undercapitalized.

The Bank had a Memorandum of Understanding ("MoU") with the FDIC
and the Florida Office of Financial Regulation that was entered
into in 2008, which required the Bank to have a total risk-based
capital of at least 10% and a Tier 1 leverage capital ratio of at
least 8%.  Recently, on July 13, 2012, the 2008 MoU was replaced
by a new MoU, which, among other things, requires the Bank to have
a total risk-based capital of at least 12% and a Tier 1 leverage
capital ratio of at least 8%.  "We did not meet the minimum
capital requirements of these MOUs at June 30, 2012, and Dec. 31,
2011, when the Bank had total risk-based capital of 8.09% and
9.85% and Tier 1 leverage capital of 5.26% and 6.88%,
respectively."

Jacobs Financial Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: JFGI) is a
Charleston, West Virginia-based holding company for First Surety
Corporation, a West Virginia domiciled surety, Triangle Surety
Agency, an insurance agency that specializes in coal reclamation
surety bonds, and Jacobs & Company, a registered investment
advisor.

The Company reported a net loss of $1.30 million for the year
ended May 31, 2011, compared with a net loss of $1.45 million
during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at Feb. 29, 2012, showed $9.12 million
in total assets, $14.72 million in total liabilities, $3.23
million in total mandatorily redeemable preferred stock and a
$8.82 million total stockholders' deficit.

For the three month period ended Feb. 29, 2012, the Company had
losses from operations of approximately $92,000, or a loss of
approximately $434,000 after accretion of mandatorily redeemable
convertible preferred stock and accrued dividends on mandatorily
redeemable preferred stock are taken into account.  For the nine
month period ended Feb. 29, 2012, the Company had losses from
operations of approximately $49,000, or a loss of approximately
$1,084,000 after accretion of mandatorily redeemable convertible

Company's significant deficiency in working capital and
stockholders' equity raise substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern.

In the auditors' report accompanying the annual report for the
fiscal year ended May 31, 2011, Malin, Bergquist & Co., LLP, in
Pittsburgh, PA, noted that the Company's significant net working

its ability to continue as a going concern.


LAKELAND DEV'T: Court Approves Baum, Glickfeld Hirings
------------------------------------------------------
Lakeland Development Company has won Bankruptcy Court permission
to employ Richard T. Baum and Glickfeld, Field & Jacobson LLP as
attorneys.

Pursuant to papers filed by the Debtor in court, each Attorney has
a separate written employment agreement with the Debtor,
guaranteed by Energy Merchant Inc., the Debtor's ultimate parent
corporation, which specifies that the Attorneys will be
compensated at the rate of $450 per hour.  Glickfeld's agreement
is also guaranteed by EMC's principal, Siegfried Hodapp.  However,
if approved as counsel, neither Attorney will exercise its rights
under the guaranties.  The final amount to be paid to the
Attorneys will be approved by the court.  The source of payment of
compensation for the Attorneys will be from the estate as may be
approved and ordered paid by the Court after notice and hearing.

A retainer of $50,000 (plus $1,046 for the filing fee) was paid to
Mr. Baum -- rickbaum@hotmail.com -- by the Debtor.  Of that
retainer, $28,495 was earned prepetition.  A retainer of $50,000
was paid to Glickfeld partner, Lawrence Jacobson, Esq., by the
Debtor.  Of that retainer, $19,898 was earned pre-petition.

To the best of the Attorneys' knowledge, the Attorneys believe
that each is a disinterested person as that term is defined in 11
U.S.C. Sec. 101(14), and is not connected with the debtor, its
creditors, any other party in interest, their attorneys and
accountants, or to this estate, and has no relation to any
bankruptcy judge presiding in the district, the Clerk of the Court
or any relation to the United States Trustee in the district, or
any person employed at the Court or the Office of the United
States Trustee, nor does the Firm or its attorneys represent or
hold an adverse interest with respect to the debtor, any creditor,
or to this estate.

Prior to being contacted on April 27, 2012, to represent the
Debtor, Mr. Baum had no contact of any kind with Debtor, its
principals, its subsidiary, parent or sister corporations, or any
of their principals.  Mr. Jacobson represented the Debtor in non-
bankruptcy matters for several years and, as a result, is very
familiar with the Debtor's business, debt structure, and related
matters.

As of the petition date, Glickfeld had a receivable from the
Debtor for $69,759 for prepetition legal services and costs not
related to this bankruptcy.  The firm has been fully compensated
for prepetition services related to the bankruptcy.  Glickfeld
agreed to waive all prepetition claims against the Debtor,
including any claims for those fees and costs, as a condition of
being retained as counsel for the Debtor.

In a supplement to the initial court papers, the Debtor disclosed
that Energy Merchant has agreed to be liable for Mr. Baum's fees.
Energy Merchant and Siegfried Hodapp have agreed to be liable for
Glickfeld's fees.  However, Mr. Baum and Glickfeld agreed to both
waive any right to pursue Energy Merchant or Mr. Hodapp (or anyone
else other than the Debtor) for any fees and costs in this matter,
as a condition of being approved as general counsel for the
Debtor.

Both firms agreed to "endeavor to eliminate any duplication of
effort in representing the Debtor and understand that they will be
held to the same standard with respect to fees and costs as if
only one firm was representing the Debtor."

LANTHEUS MEDICAL: S&P Affirms 'B+' Corp. Credit Rating; Off Watch
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B+' corporate
credit rating on North Billerica, Mass.-based Lantheus Medical
Imaging Inc. and removed the ratings from CreditWatch, where there
were placed with negative implications on March 30, 2012. The
outlook is negative.

"At the same time, we affirmed the 'B+' issue-level rating and on
the company's senior unsecured notes. The '4' recovery rating on
the notes remains unchanged and indicates average (30%-50%)
recovery in the event of payment default," S&P said.

"The rating action follows early stages of resolution to the
company's production problems with the recent shipment of product;
as a result of the recent shipment, and our expectation that
additional lots will be manufactured and shipped over the coming
weeks, we believe that back orders will be filled and that
inventory will begin to be restocked by the end of the year," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Michael Berrian.

"The ratings on Lantheus reflect a 'weak' business risk profile
characterized by contract manufacturer concentration, supply
shortages of key products, a narrow business focus, product
concentration, and minimal near-term patent exposure. We view
Lantheus' financial risk profile as 'highly leveraged' because the
extended outage and supply constraints resulted in leverage
increasing to more than 5x and funds from operations (FFO) to
total debt declining to less than 12%," S&P said.


LEHMAN BROTHERS: Credit Protection Trusts Seek Plan Relief
----------------------------------------------------------
Credit Protection Trusts 207 and 283 have filed a motion seeking
relief from the court order confirming Lehman Brothers Holdings
Inc.'s Chapter 11 plan.

The move comes after the trusts received a notice from Lehman,
informing them about the assumption of their swap agreements with
the company's special financing unit pursuant to the court order,
and that they would recover nothing of their claims.

The trusts filed $44 million in claims for damages after their
swap agreements with Lehman's special financing unit were
terminated as a result of its failure to make necessary payments
under the agreements.

In a court filing, the trusts said they were not able to file an
objection to the assumption because of Lehman's failure to serve
the notice on their lawyers.

"The motion should be granted and the debtors' assumption of the
terminated swap agreements with a $0 cure amount should be deemed
void," said the trusts' lawyer, Martin Bienenstock, Esq., at
Proskauer Rose LLP, in New York.

A court hearing to consider approval of the motion is scheduled
for September 19.  Objections are due by September 12.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Noteholders Defend Brown Rudnick Fees
------------------------------------------------------
The Ad Hoc Group of holders of notes issued by Lehman Brothers
Treasury Co. BV argues that, contrary to the U.S. Trustee's
contention, the ad hoc group and its counsel, Brown Rudnick, had
substantial contribution to the success of the Debtors'
restructuring.  The ad hoc group says it, together with its
counsel, played an integral role in formulating and garnering the
necessary support for the Plan of Reorganization, specifically:

   -- in formulating and refining the Structured Securities
      Valuation Methodologies;

   -- in the global plan negotiations between the Debtors and
      other constituencies, including helping to broker the basic
      deal between creditors of LBHI who proposed a plan premised
      on global substantive consolidation and creditors of Lehman
      Brothers Special Financing, Inc.; and

   -- in facilitating the ultimate settlement reached between the
      Joint Bankruptcy Trustees of LBT and the Debtors in respect
      of the treatment of the LBT Intercompany Claim.

                     Fee Committee's Statement

The Fee Committee asserts that it would accept any defined
assignment with respect to the applications for payment of fees
and expenses under Section 503(b) of the Bankruptcy Code, and
would do so without any additional monthly expense to the
estates.  However, the Fee Committee asks that the Court
specifically order that participation after determining an
appropriate procedure for addressing the "substantial
contribution" standard.

                      About Levi Strauss & Co.

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Levi Strauss & Co. --
http://www.levistrauss.com/-- is one of the world's leading
branded apparel companies.  The Company designs and markets jeans,
casual and dress pants, tops, jackets and related accessories, for
men, women and children under the Levi's(R), Dockers(R) and
Signature by Levi Strauss & Co.(TM).  The Company markets its
products in three geographic regions: Americas, Europe, and Asia
Pacific.

The Company's balance sheet May 27, 2012, showed $2.89 billion in
total assets, $2.99 billion in total liabilities, $5.02 million in
temporary equity, and a $110.65 million total stockholders'
deficit.

                           *     *     *

In April 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its
'B+' rating (same as the corporate credit rating) to San
Francisco-based Levi Strauss & Co.'s proposed $350 million senior
unsecured notes due 2022.

"The ratings on Levi Strauss reflect our view that the company's
financial profile continues to be 'aggressive,' particularly since
the company's balance sheet remains highly leveraged and we expect
cash flow protections measures to continue to be weak. In
addition, we continue to consider Levi Strauss' business risk
profile to be 'weak,' given its continuing participation in the
highly competitive denim and casual pants market, which is subject
to fashion risk and still-weak consumer spending, and our
expectation that the company's business focus will remain narrow.
We believe the company benefits from its strong, well-recognized
Levi's brand, long operating history, and distribution channel
diversity (both by retail customer and geography)," S&P said.

In April 2012, Moody's Investors Service affirmed Levi Strauss &
Co ("LS&Co) B1 Corporate Family and Probability of Default
Ratings.  Moody's also assigned a B2 rating to the company's
proposed $350 million senior unsecured notes due 2022 and affirmed
the B2 ratings of the company's other series of unsecured debt.

Levi Strauss' B1 Corporate Family Rating reflects the company's
negative trends in operating margins reflecting inconsistent
execution as well as input cost pressures.  The ratings also
reflect the company's still significant debt burden, which has
been increasing due to the company's continued investment in its
own retail stores and its sizable underfunded pension. Debt/EBITDA
(incorporating Moody's standard analytical adjustments) was 5.1
times for the LTM period ending 2/26/2012.  The rating take into
consideration the company's significant global scale, with
revenues near $5 billion, its operations in over 110 countries and
the ownership of the iconic Levi's trademark.


MEDIMEDIA USA: Moody's Affirms 'Caa1' CFR/PDR; Outlook Negative
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed MediMedia USA, Inc.'s outlook to
negative from stable. All other ratings, including its Corporate
Family Rating (CFR) were affirmed. The reason for the change in
outlook is the decline in liquidity since the company amended and
extended its first lien bank loan facility and the continuing poor
performance of its operations driven by weakness at its
Pharmaceutical Marketing business. Its modest cash position and
potential lack of revolver availability post the maturity of its
non extended revolver leaves the company with a weak liquidity
position to meet unanticipated needs or invest into the business.

A summary of the actions follows.

MediMedia USA, Inc

    Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed at Caa1

    Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed at Caa1

    Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility

    15.3 million Tranche A-1 Revolving Loan maturing October
    2012, Affirmed at B2 (LGD2-24%)

    29.7 million Tranche A-2 Revolving Loan maturing August 2014,
    Affirmed at B2 (LGD2-24%)

    0.7 million Tranche B-1 Term Loan maturing October 2013,
    Affirmed at B2 (LGD2-24%)

    115 million Tranche B-2 Term Loan maturing August 2014,
    Affirmed at B2 (LGD2-24%)

    Senior Subordinated Notes maturing November 2014, Affirmed at
    Caa2 (LGD changed to LGD-5, 78% from LGD-5, 79%)

    Outlook, Negative from Stable

Summary Rating Rationale

MediMedia's Caa1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) reflects its weak
liquidity position, its high leverage (7.0x as of June 30, 2012
including Moody's standard adjustments for lease expenses), and
negative free cash flow. Also reflected in the rating, is the lack
of success that the company has had turning around overall results
driven primarily by weakness at its Pharmaceutical Marketing
business since amending its credit facilities and extending the
maturity dates post the sale of its Animal Health division. Its
MediMedia Health division that performs marketing services for
pharmaceutical companies has continued to struggle and Moody's
does not foresee an improvement in the near term. During the
second half of 2012, Moody's expects the company to face tight
liquidity conditions as part of its revolver matures in Q4 2012
and its anticipated to have negligible availability on its
extended revolver with a limited cushion of compliance with its
covenants. The sale of its Animal Health and formulary database
business in 2011 and the decline in its pharmaceutical business
that was once one of its largest divisions leave the company
smaller and less diversified than it had been previously.

Although a small part of overall EBITDA, the company's StayWell
Health division has experienced some success turning around its
operations after the LifeMaster acquisition which dramatically
increased costs without generating a comparable amount of
revenues. Its Krames StayWell business also provides support for
the rating and is its largest business, although Moody's expects
EBITDA to be modestly lower for the FY 2012.

MediMedia's liquidity position is weak given the limited revolver
availability post the October 5th 2012 maturity of its non
extended revolver, the $7 million cash balance, negative expected
free cash flow, and a limited cushion of compliance with its
financial covenants. While the Animal Health transaction that
closed in August 2011 improved their liquidity, it has
deteriorated since then. Moody's expects management to attempt to
raise additional sources of liquidity in the near term. The
company's Senior Leverage Ratio steps down to 3.5x in Q3 2012 from
3.75x currently which provides the company with a limited cushion
of compliance. While the company may pass the leverage test in the
near term, aided by the roll off of a weak second quarter 2011
from LTM results, the senior leverage test steps down again to
3.25x at the end of Q1 2013 and to 3x at the end of Q3 2013.
MediMedia is also subject to a 1.5x Interest Coverage Ratio for
the life of the loan and a $20 million limit on capital
expenditures. The continued step downs in its Senior Leverage
covenant levels and the slow pace of turning around its operating
performance may leave the company at risk of violating its
covenant levels. Given limited liquidity, first lien lenders may
be reluctant to seek higher interest rates if a covenant is
violated, but may seek additional asset sales to further reduce
their loan exposure or may increase pressure for additional
liquidity from its equity sponsor.

The negative rating outlook is driven by the weak liquidity
position, lack of success improving operations, tight covenant
levels and approaching maturities of its credit facility and
subordinate notes in 2014. Moody's expects EBITDA performance to
grow modestly from current levels but it's unclear if it will be
able to boost liquidity to an adequate level and if the rate of
improvement will be strong enough to allow for a refinancing of
its debt structure. The ability to shut down the underperforming
MediMedia Health division that generates negative EBITDA currently
could provide support for overall EBITDA levels if it does not
improve in the near term. The limited capex spending due to poor
liquidity may hinder the pace of a turnaround for the company. The
leverage level is at the high end of the range appropriate for the
rating level and positions the company at the low end of the
current Caa1 CFR.

A change in the outlook to stable could occur if the company
improves its operating performance, generates positive free cash
flow over 5% of debt with adequate liquidity, reduces leverage
below 6.5x on a sustained basis and the company becomes well
positioned to refinance its debt structure.

Moody's would downgrade the rating if the company's leverage fails
to improve below 6.5x on a sustained basis in the near term, its
free cash flow or revolver availability failed to improve, its
ability to meet debt obligations came into question, or the
headroom under its covenants failed to improve from current
levels. Any of which would increase the probability of default for
the company.

Moody's Loss Given Default methodology (LGD) implies a B1 facility
rating for the senior secured credit facilities. However, given
the current negative outlook and the potential for additional
senior obligations to provide added liquidity that would impact
the LGD methodology, the LGD was overridden and the senior secured
credit facility rating remained at B2.

The principal methodology used in rating MediMedia was the Global
Publishing Industry Methodology published in December 2011. Other
methodologies used include Loss Given Default for Speculative-
Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S., Canada and EMEA
published in June 2009.

Headquartered in Yardley, Pennsylvania, MediMedia USA, Inc.
(MediMedia) provides health information and services that inform
consumers, physicians, and other healthcare decision makers. Its
annual revenue is approximately $281 million as of June 30, 2012.
The company is primarily owned by Vestar Capital Partners.


MEDIMEDIA USA: S&P Cuts CCR to 'CCC' on Expected Limited Liquidity
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating on Yardley,
Pa.-based MediMedia USA Inc. to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'. "We also
lowered all issue-level ratings on the company's debt by one notch
in conjunction with the downgrade. The rating outlook is
negative," S&P said.

"The downgrade is based on our expectation of limited liquidity
during the fourth quarter of this year when $15.3 million of the
$45 million revolver matures and the company will have to make a
semiannual interest payment on the subordinated notes," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Daniel Haines. "We also expect
headroom with the senior leverage covenant to be tight when the
covenant steps down a quarter turn in the third quarter of 2012.
The rating reflects the company's 'vulnerable' business risk
profile, very high leverage, negative discretionary cash flow, and
our expectation of tight liquidity. We view the company's business
risk profile as vulnerable based on its small niche position in
health education and services and poor operating performance over
the past couple years. We also view its financial profile as
'highly leveraged.' MediMedia's adjusted debt to EBITDA was steep,
at over 10x as of June 30, 2012," S&P said.

"The negative outlook reflects our view that liquidity could be
extremely thin during the fourth quarter and that covenant
headroom may be tight during the remainder of the year. We could
lower the rating if we become convinced that the company will not
have enough liquidity to cover interest payments in the fourth
quarter. We could also lower the rating if we conclude that the
company will violate its covenants," S&P said.

"Although unlikely over the near term, we could revise the outlook
to stable if it becomes apparent that the company will be able to
maintain satisfactory liquidity and covenant headroom of 10% or
more. This would likely be the result of a stabilization of the
pharmaceutical marketing business and possibly additional
liquidity sources," S&P said.


MERRIMACK PHARMACEUTICALS: Has Indenture of Lease with RB Kendall
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and RB Kendall Fee, LLC, entered

METRO TOWER: Files 3 Years of Delinquent Federal ITRs
-----------------------------------------------------
Karen Smith Welch at Amarillo Globe-News reports that the owner of
the historic Barfield Building in downtown Amarillo, Texas, is
struggling with more than just forestalling a $380,000 lien
foreclosure.

According to the report, Metro Tower has been busy filing three
years of delinquent federal income tax returns and an overdue
monthly operating report required in its Chapter 11 bankruptcy
case, Managing Partner Todd Harmon said Friday during a meeting at
U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Amarillo, Texas.

The report notes the meeting, required under federal bankruptcy
laws, gave representatives of the Office of the U.S. Trustee and
creditors a chance to question the debtor under oath.

The report relates Mr. Harmon said the company's 2009, 2010 and
2011 tax returns had only recently been submitted to the IRS.  The
same was true for an operating report due to the bankruptcy court
on Aug. 20, Mr. Harmon said

The report adds Mr. Harmon said the returns and report show "zero
activity" financially by the company.

The report, citing court documents, relates Metro Tower listed
$733,696 in liabilities, including the lien, and two assets, the
1927 Barfield at 600 S. Polk St. and a parking garage at 509 S.
Tyler St.  The company placed the combined worth of the two
structures at $1.2 million.

The report relates the company listed no bank accounts or income
streams, more than $40,000 in unpaid property taxes and almost
$23,500 in civil court judgments.  Mr. Harmon is listed as a
co-debtor for those liabilities.

According to the report, Metro Tower intended to transform the
vacant Barfield into apartments, offices and retail stores -- a
$7-million project under the 2010 estimates.  But the project
continually struggled to find funding since it was announced in
April 2004.  Financing withered after Metro Tower began
demolition, so the building sits partially gutted.

The report says an online check Friday of filings in Metro Tower's
bankruptcy shows the court had not yet received the company's
first monthly operating report.

The report relates Mary Fran Durham, a trial attorney with the
Office of the U.S. Trustee in Dallas, Texas, told Mr. Harmon he
must not miss another report deadline or he could risk seeing the
bankruptcy case dismissed.

The report says Metro Tower and LT Barfield negotiated a
settlement last month that gives Metro Tower until Oct. 1, 2012,
to pay up or see the building placed on the auction block Oct. 2.

Metro Tower has, thus far, been unable to secure funds to pay a
$380,000 debt, the report quotes Mr. Harmon as saying.  The
lenders he has contacted "don't want to get involved with a
Chapter 11," he said.

The report relates Mr. Harmon also has been unsuccessful in trying
to sell the Barfield.  But, he said, "I have a lot of people
taking my phone calls."

According to the report, the settlement agreement tacks another
$44 to Metro Tower's tab for each day the bill goes unpaid.  The
company also will owe $361 in court costs and $2,500 to pay
attorney fees incurred by LT Barfield, a coalition of five
Amarillo investors.

Based in Amarillo, Texas, Metro Tower, LLC, filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection (Bankr. N.D. Tex. Case No. 12-20351) on
July 3, 2012.  Judge Robert L. Jones presides over the case.
Patrick Alan Swindell, Esq., at Swindell & Associates, PC,
represents the Debtor.  The Debtor listed assets of $1,220,000,
and liabilities of $733,695.

MOUNTAIN PROPERTY: Escapes Chapter 7 Liquidation
------------------------------------------------
Mountain Property Development, Inc., in July saw the bankruptcy
judge entering an order converting its Chapter 11 case to
Chapter 7 liquidating.

The judge later vacated the order after the Debtor said it has
uploaded a separate order designating Robert Comes as responsible
individual of the Debtor.

The judge had entered the conversion order due to the Debtor's
failure to comply with a June order requiring it to serve an
application and order designating a responsible individual.

In its motion for reconsideration, the Debtor said that neither it
nor its attorney was aware that documents filed in May failed to
comply with the order.  A review later determined that counsel had
"chosen an incorrect ecf designation" when he filed it on May 30.

MUELLER WATER: Moody's Affirms 'B3' CFR/PDR; Outlook Positive
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service revised the rating outlook for Mueller
Water Products, Inc. to positive from stable and affirmed its
existing ratings, including its B3 corporate family and
probability of default ratings, B2 senior unsecured debt rating,
Caa2 senior subordinated debt rating, and SGL-2 speculative grade
liquidity rating.

Ratings Rationale

The change in outlook to positive from stable reflects Moody's
expectation that the company will continue to improve its
operating margins, in large part because of the disposition of
United States Pipe and Foundry Company LLC, which was a drag on
earnings and credit metrics. Moody's expects Mueller's adjusted
debt to EBITDA to fall below 5.0x on a sustained basis throughout
2013. Moody's also anticipates that Mueller will continue to
improve its interest coverage such that adjusted EBITA to interest
expense is sustained above 1.5x. Attainment of these two credit
metrics were cited as triggers for potential improvement in
Mueller's ratings and/or outlook at the time of Moody's last
credit opinion. Finally, residential construction markets, which
once constituted approximately 40% of Mueller's revenues but now
account for between 5% - 10%, are witnessing improvement. This
nascent recovery will have a positive effect on Mueller's end
markets in the long run.

The B3 corporate family rating reflects Moody's expectation that
Mueller will continue to face weak end markets in the near term as
economic uncertainties and budgetary issues for US municipalities
lead to their pushing out water infrastructure upgrades. In
addition, rising raw material costs are still pressuring operating
margins.

However, the ratings also acknowledge Mueller's strong market
position, its substantial installed base of diverse products that
can lead to a high percentage of recurring revenues, and the
growing and inevitable need to eventually repair and/or replace
aging water infrastructure systems and also maintain compliance
with EPA regulations. Furthermore, Mueller's sizable asset-based
revolving credit facility, its ability to generate positive,
albeit weak, free cash flow, and the absence of near-term debt
maturities strengthen the company's liquidity position.

The rating could benefit if Moody's were to project that Mueller's
adjusted debt to EBITDA will fall below 4.25x and adjusted EBITA
to interest expense is above 2.0x, both on a sustained basis.

The outlook and/or rating could be lowered if the company's
adjusted debt to EBITDA exceeded 6.0x and/or if adjusted EBITA to
interest expense falls below 1.25x .

The following ratings were affirmed:

  B2 (LGD3, 38%) on the $200 million senior unsecured notes due
  2020

  Caa2 (LGD5, 81%) on the $420 million senior subordinated notes
  due 2017

  B3 Corporate family rating

  Speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-2

The principal methodology used in rating Mueller Water Products,
Inc. was the Global Manufacturing Industry Methodology published
in December 2010. Other methodologies used include Loss Given
Default for Speculative-Grade Non-Financial Companies in the U.S.,
Canada and EMEA published in June 2009.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Mueller Water Products, Inc. is
a North American manufacturer and supplier of water and
infrastructure and flow control products for use in water
distribution networks, water and wastewater treatment facilities,
and gas distribution and piping systems. Revenues and net losses
for the trailing 12 months ended June 30, 2012, including the
results of U.S. Pipe, were $1.4 billion and ($122 million),
respectively.

the VSP and involuntary reduction in force, and recognize
substantially all of the related charges, in the fourth quarter of
2012.

As reported, Navistar communicated to employees that it is taking
actions to control spending across the Company with targeted
reductions of certain costs.  In addition to the expected
integration synergies resulting from its ongoing efforts to
consolidate its truck and engine engineering operations, as well
as the relocation of its world headquarters, the Company is
focusing on continued reductions in the amount of discretionary
spending, including but not limited to reductions from
efficiencies, or prioritizing or eliminating certain programs or
projects.

Employees who applied and are accepted in the VSP will receive
enhanced exit benefits.

Along with the employees that choose to participate in the VSP, it
will use attrition and, if necessary, an involuntary reduction in
force to eliminate additional positions in order to meet its
targeted reductions goal.  Severance benefits of various amounts,
depending on the pay grade and length of service of the affected
employees, would be payable under the reduction in force.

President and COO in recognition of the significant contributions
he has made in challenging assignments since joining the Company
in early 2010.  Our Board and management are aligned around a

NXT ENERGY: Swings to C$30,660 Net Income in Second Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------
NXT Energy Solutions Inc. reported net income of C$30,660 on
C$2.4 million of survey revenue for the three month period ended
June 30, 2012, compared with a net loss of C$692,510 on C$144,650
of survey revenue for the corresponding period of 2011.

For the six month period ended June 30, 2012, the Company had net
income of C$368,588 on C$5.2 million of survey revenue, compared
with a net loss of C$1.5 million on C$144,650 of survey revenue
for the same period of the prior year.

The Company notes that operating results are not readily
comparable on a quarter to quarter, or year over year basis.
"This is because revenues are derived from periodic large value
survey projects, which can be conducted in a relatively short time
frame, but can have a large effect on any single period in which
they occur.  Also, NXT applies the completed contract method of
revenue recognition, such that revenue and costs are deferred and
recognized in the quarter in which the survey project is formally
completed."

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2012, showed C$4.5 million
in total assets, C$1.1 million in total liabilities, and
stockholders' equity of C$3.4 million.

According to the Company, there is substantial doubt about the
appropriateness of the use of the going concern assumption because
NXT has experienced losses and negative cash flow from operations
over the past several years and has traditionally had minimal
working capital.  "NXT recognizes that current working capital and
contracts in process may not be sufficient to support the
operations beyond the next twelve months without generating
significant additional revenues and / or capital."

"NXT anticipates it will be able to expand operations in order to
generate both net income and cash from operations in future years
with its existing business model; however, the occurrence and
timing of this outcome cannot be predicted with certainty."

KPMG LLP, in Calgary, Canada, expressed substantial doubt about
NXT's ability to continue as a going concern, following the
Company's results for the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2011.  The
independent auditors noted that the Company has experienced losses
and negative cash flow from operations over the past several years
and has traditionally had minimal working capital.  "NXT

may not be sufficient to support the operations beyond the next

OAKLAND POLICE DEPARTMENT: In the Brink of Receivership
-------------------------------------------------------
Matthai Kuruvila at the San Francisco Chronicle reports that nine
years of efforts to bring Oakland's Police Department into
compliance with a legal settlement from a federal civil rights
lawsuit has cost the city millions and embroiled city leaders in a
quagmire of legal complications.

The sluggish pace of change on reforms now threatens to put the
department into federal receivership, with politicians, a court-
appointed monitor, lawyers and city bureaucrats readying for
battle over federal control, according to the San Francisco
Chronicle.

But a coalition of Oakland residents is worried that federal
control would further distance Police Department priorities from
residents' needs in the state's most violent city, the report
relates.  They say bureaucracy is taking precedence over their
safety, the Chronicle notes.

The report discloses that in the court settlement discussions and
reports from the monitor who measures compliance, "there's never
any discussion there about Oakland's most serious problem, violent
crime," said Bruce Nye, board chair for Make Oakland Better Now, a
good government group.

The group is planning to legally intervene in the court
settlement, which it hopes will allow group members to push for a
mediator to resolve the outstanding issues, avoid federal
receivership and offer a counterweight to what they say are
overzealous efforts on the part of the monitor, the Chronicle
says.

The Chronicle notes that the reforms are driven by the legal
settlement, which was reached after four officers were accused of
systematically framing and beating suspects.  The reforms require
department compliance on 51 tasks, like tight timelines for
internal investigations and demographic details on every officer
stop, the report relates.

John Burris, a lawyer for plaintiffs in the original lawsuit, said
he was opposed to the residents' efforts, the report relays.

The Chronicle discloses that the group of residents include Nye's
group and community policing advocates Don Link and Bishop Bob
Jackson, minister of one of Oakland's largest churches, Acts Full
Gospel Church of God in Christ in East Oakland.  The Oakland
Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and other groups representing
Latinos and Oakland Chinatown said they intend to file legal
papers and join the lawsuit so that their voices will be heard as
the case is resolved, the report says.  They fear that costs will
balloon and taxpayers will bear the brunt if the Police Department
is put under outside control.


OLSEN AGRICULTURE: 6-Year Repayment Plan Declared Effective
-----------------------------------------------------------
Justin Much at Statesman Journal reports that Olsen Agriculture
exited bankruptcy beginning Sept. 1, 2012, after Judge Frank R.
Alley of the United States Bankruptcy Court District of Oregon
approved a reorganization plan with which the Company is allowed
to pay off its creditors over a six-year span.

According to the report, work on the reorganization plan began
June 1, 2011, and specifics were ironed out in late August.
"Anytime you have a lot of debt, there are going to be some
obstacles," the report quotes Olsen Ag General Manager Ben Hanna
as saying.  "We sold some land . . . it's a six-year plan.  We are
in debt around $25 million right now.  The plan will be to pay off
the unsecured creditors and reestablish a $3 million operating
line of credit."

The report relates Olsen Ag returned approximately 1,600 acres of
farmland to its primary lender, Rabo Agrifinance, in exchange for
reduction of debt.  It farms around 6,500 acres.

The report says Mr. Hanna affirmed that during the reorganization
process, two share holders, James Olsen and Robin Olsen, were
removed from their positions in the organization last January.

"Basically, what Saturday means is the company is no longer in
bankruptcy and under the supervision of bankruptcy court...as long
as it meets the plan of reorganization," the report quotes Gary
Lawrence of Hamstreet & Associates, Olsen Ag's restructuring
advisor, as noting.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

The Company said in its annual report for the year ended Dec. 31,
2011, that its loan agreement with the Koski Family Limited
Partnership matures in three years and select material assets of
the Company relating to or connected with its ProBiora3, SMaRT
Replacement Therapy, MU1140 and LPT3-04 technologies have been
pledged as collateral to secure the Company's borrowings under the
Loan Agreement.  This secured indebtedness could impede the
Company from raising the additional equity or debt capital the
Company needs to continue its operations even though the amount
borrowed under the Loan Agreement automatically converts into
equity upon a qualified equity financing of at least $5 million.
The Company's ability to repay the loan will depend largely upon
the Company's future operating performance and the Company cannot
assure that its business will generate sufficient cash flow or
that the Company will be able to raise the additional capital
necessary to repay the loan.  If the Company is unable to generate
sufficient cash flow or are otherwise unable to raise the funds
necessary to repay the loan when it becomes due, the KFLP could
institute foreclosure proceedings against the Company's material
intellectual property assets and the Company could be forced into
bankruptcy or liquidation.


PEREGRINE FINANCIAL: Judge Denies Bid to Raise GC Pay
-----------------------------------------------------
Megan Stride at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge Carol A. Doyle refused to sign off on a $20,000 raise for
Peregrine Financial Group Inc.'s general counsel on Thursday,
telling the collapsed brokerage firm's liquidating trustee he
needs to first explain why the pay boost, which raised the ire of
commodity customers, is appropriate.

According to Bankruptcy Law360, Judge Doyle slated a hearing on
the salary increase issue for next week, but granted the rest of
Chapter 7 trustee Ira Bodenstein's motion to continue running
Peregrine's limited business operations.

                     About Peregrine Financial

Peregrine Financial Group Inc. filed to liquidate under Chapter 7
of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 12-27488)
on July 10, 2012, disclosing between $500 million and $1 billion
of assets, and between $100 million and $500 million of
liabilities.

Earlier that day, at the behest of the U.S. Commodity Futures
Trading Commission, a U.S. district judge appointed a receiver and
froze the firm's assets.  The firm put itself into bankruptcy
liquidation in Chicago later the same day.  The CFTC had sued
Peregrine, saying that more than $200 million of supposedly
segregated customer funds had been "misappropriated."  The CFTC
case is U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission v. Peregrine
Financial Group Inc., 12-cv-5383, U.S. District Court, Northern
District of Illinois (Chicago).

Peregrine's CEO Russell R. Wasendorf Sr. unsuccessfully attempted
suicide outside a firm office in Cedar Falls, Iowa, on July 9.

The bankruptcy petition was signed in his place by Russell R.
Wasendorf Jr., the firm's chief operating officer. The resolution
stated that Wasendorf Jr. was given a power of attorney on July 3
to exercise if Wasendorf Sr. became incapacitated.

Peregrine Financial is the regulated unit of the brokerage
PFGBest.

At a quickly-convened hearing on July 13, the bankruptcy judge
authorized the Chapter 7 trustee to operate Peregrine's business
on a "limited basis" through Sept. 13.


PINNACLE AIRLINES: Reaches Tentative Agreement with Union
---------------------------------------------------------
Pinnacle Airlines Corp.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Pinnacle
Airlines Inc., has reached a tentative agreement with the
Transport Workers Union of America, the legal representative of
the Pinnacle Airlines, Inc. Dispatchers group.  Pinnacle is
seeking concessions from all of its employees in order to emerge
successfully from Chapter 11 proceedings with a competitive cost
structure.  The two sides reached a tentative agreement on
concessions that cover pay, retirement, work rules and benefits.
The concessions would become effective when concessions are
implemented for other labor groups and non-union employees.  TWU
members at the airline will now have the opportunity to vote on
the tentative agreement in the coming days and, if ratified, will
avoid the Section 1113 litigation process in bankruptcy court.

"The agreement was reached because TWU and management worked
together to complete a deal that enables us to move closer towards
restructuring Pinnacle with a competitive cost structure that will
allow us to exit Chapter 11 Bankruptcy proceedings and emerge as a
successful and competitive regional carrier.  We appreciate the
hard work of TWU's negotiating committee and recognize the
importance of the hard-working men and women of the TWU as an
integral part of the safe and efficient operation of our airline,"
said Russ Elander, vice-president of operations.

Alex Giarrocco, TWU's local president, added, "We understand that
the company is in a very difficult financial situation and needs
the support of its employees to emerge from bankruptcy.  Our
professional ranks recognize that our contribution, painful as it
is, is necessary for Pinnacle to reorganize its business to be
able to survive."

The tentative agreement remains subject to ratification by the TWU
membership, required corporate approvals, and review by the
Bankruptcy Court.

POSITIVEID CORP: Enters Into Asset Purchase Pact with VeriTeQ
-------------------------------------------------------------
PositiveID Corporation, on Jan. 11, 2012, it had entered into a
Stock Purchase Agreement with VeriTeQ Acquisition Corporation, a
corporation owned and controlled by Scott R. Silverman, the
Company's former chairman and chief executive officer, whereby
VeriTeQ purchased all of the outstanding capital stock of
PositiveID Animal Health in exchange for a secured promissory note
in the amount of $200,000 and 4 million shares of common stock of
VeriTeQ representing a 10% ownership interest at the time.  The
Animal Health business included certain assets and liabilities
relating to the Company's implantable passive radio-frequency
identification microchip business, as well as all of the assets
and liabilities relating to the Company's Health Link business,
which is a patient-controlled, online repository to store personal
health information.  The term "VeriChip Business" did not include
the GlucoChip, a glucose-sensing microchip based on the Company's
proprietary embedded biosensor intellectual property, or any
product or application involving blood glucose detection or
diabetes management.  The Note is secured by substantially all of
the assets of Animal Health pursuant to a Security Agreement dated
Jan. 11, 2012.

In connection with the VeriTeQ Stock Purchase Agreement, the
Company entered into a License Agreement with VeriTeQ dated
Jan. 11, 2012, whereby the Company granted VeriTeQ a non-
exclusive, perpetual, non-transferable, license to utilize the
Company's bio-sensor implantable radio frequency identification
(RFID) device that is protected under United States Patent No.
7,125,382, "Embedded Bio Sensor System" for the purpose of
designing and constructing, using, selling and offering to sell
products or services related to the VeriChip Business, but
excluding the Restricted Applications.  Under the Original License
Agreement, the Company was to receive royalties in the amount of
10% on all gross revenues arising out of or relating to VeriTeQ's
sale of products, whether by license or otherwise, specifically
relating to the Patent, and a royalty of 20% on gross revenues
generated under that certain Development and Supply Agreement
between the Company and Medical Components, Inc., dated April 2,
2009.  The Company's right to the Medcomp royalty payments was to
terminate three years following written clearance by the United
States Food and Drug Administration of the Medcomp product that
incorporates the VeriChip product.  On June 26, 2012, the Original
License Agreement was amended pursuant to which the license was
converted from a non-exclusive license to an exclusive license,
subject to VeriTeQ meeting certain minimum royalty requirements.

On Aug. 28, 2012, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase
Agreement with VeriTeQ, whereby VeriTeQ purchased all of the
intellectual property, including patents and patents pending,
related to the Company's embedded biosensor portfolio of
intellectual property.  Under the VeriTeQ Asset Purchase
Agreement, the Company is to receive royalties in the amount of
10% on all gross revenues arising out of or relating to VeriTeQ's
sale of products, whether by license or otherwise, specifically
relating to the embedded biosensor intellectual property, to be
calculated quarterly with royalty payments due within 30 days of
each quarter end.  In 2012, there are no minimum royalty
requirements.  Minimum royalty requirements thereafter, and
through the remaining life of any of the patents and patents
pending, are as follows:

   * 2013 - $400,000;

   * 2014 - $800,000; and

   * 2015 - through expiration of the patents (patents granted and
     pending) - $1,600,000.

The Company is also to receive a royalty payment of 20% of gross
revenues from products or services sold to Medcomp pursuant to the
Medcomp Agreement, and any successor agreements with Medcomp, to
be calculated quarterly with royalty payments due within 30 days
of each quarter end.  The total cumulative royalty payments under
the Medcomp Agreement will not exceed $600,000.

Simultaneously with the VeriTeQ Asset Purchase Agreement, the
Company entered into a License Agreement with VeriTeQ granting the
Company an exclusive, perpetual, transferable, worldwide and
royalty-free license to the Patent and patents pending that are a
component of the GlucoChip in the fields of blood glucose
monitoring and diabetes management.  In connection with the
VeriTeQ Asset Purchase Agreement, the Original License Agreement,
as amended June 26, 2012, was terminated.  Also on Aug. 28, 2012,
the Security Agreement was amended, pursuant to which the assets
sold by the Company to VeriTeQ under the VeriTeQ Asset Purchase
Agreement and the related royalty payments were added as
collateral under the Security Agreement.

The Company also entered into a Shared Services Agreement with
VeriTeQ on Jan. 11, 2012, whereby the Company agreed to provide
certain services to VeriTeQ in exchange for $30,000 per month,
commencing Jan. 23, 2012.  On June 25, 2012, the Shared Services
Agreement was amended, pursuant to which, effective June 1, 2012,
the monthly charge for the shared services under the Shared
Services Agreement was reduced from $30,000 to $12,000.  On
Aug. 28, 2012, the Shared Services Agreement was further amended,
pursuant to which, effective Sept. 1, 2012, the monthly charge for
the shared services under the Shared Services Agreement was
reduced from $12,000 to $5,000.

                     About Residential Capital

Residential Capital LLC, the unprofitable mortgage subsidiary of
Ally Financial Inc., filed for bankruptcy protection (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 12-12020) on May 14, 2012.

Neither Ally Financial nor Ally Bank is included in the bankruptcy
filings.

ResCap, one of the country's largest mortgage originators and
servicers, was sent to Chapter 11 with 50 subsidiaries amid
"continuing industry challenges, rising litigation costs and
claims, and regulatory uncertainty," according to a company
statement.

ResCap disclosed $15.68 billion in assets and $15.28 billion in
liabilities as of March 31, 2012.

Centerview Partners LLC and FTI Consulting are acting as financial
advisers to ResCap.  Morrison & Foerster LLP is acting as legal
adviser to ResCap.  Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP is
the conflicts counsel.  Rubenstein Associates, Inc., is the public
relations consultants to the Company in the Chapter 11 case.
Morrison Cohen LLP is advising ResCap's independent directors.
Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLP is the claims and notice agent.

Ray C. Schrock, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, in New York, serves
as counsel to Ally Financial.

ResCap is selling its mortgage origination and servicing
businesses and its legacy portfolio, consisting mainly of mortgage
loans and other residual financial assets.  At the onset of the
bankruptcy case, ResCap struck a deal with Nationstar Mortgage LLC
for the mortgage origination and servicing businesses, and with
Ally Financial for the legacy portfolio.  Together, the asset
sales are expected to generate roughly $4 billion in proceeds.

Following a hearing in June, the bankruptcy judge scheduled
auctions for Oct. 23.  A hearing to approve the sales was set for
Nov. 5.  Fortress Investment Group LLC will make the first bid for
the mortgage-servicing business, while Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
will serve as stalking-horse bidder for the remaining portfolio of
mortgages.

RESIDENTIAL CAPITAL: Homeowners Want Official Borrowers Committee
-----------------------------------------------------------------
A group of homeowners has filed a motion seeking the appointment
of a committee that will represent loan borrowers in the
bankruptcy cases of Residential Capital LLC and its affiliated
debtors.

The homeowners, whose loans were sold and securitized and are
currently held in the companies, assert claims which stemmed from
the latter's alleged "deceptive lending practices" and
"fraudulent servicing policies."

"Appointing a borrow committee will centralize and streamline a
method for the millions of homeowners affected by this
[bankruptcy] filing to have representation in this matter," said
the group's lawyer, Robert Brown, Esq., at Robert Brown P.C., in
New York.

Mr. Brown pointed out that the committee of unsecured creditors
is dominated by large financial institutions and insurers, which
prevents borrowers from having any say in the decision-making
process.  "The committee simply has no interest in protecting the
interests of borrowers," he said.

According to Mr. Brown, four of the members of the Creditors'
Committee -- Wilmington Trust, NA, The Bank of New York Mellon
Trust Company, N.A., U.S. Bank National Association, Deutsche
Bank Trust Company Americas -- were involved in lending money to
various Debtor entities for loan originations, as well as acting
trustees and underwriters for securitizations.  Many securitizing
participants are creditors and have other associations with the
trustee entities seated on the Creditors' Committee.  This
dynamic makes it impossible for the Trustee Members to adequately
represent homeowners in this venue, Mr. Brown tells the Court.
Loyalty to other parties with whom the Trustee Members have many
interwoven relationships would supersede any loyalty to
homeowners, to which they are all adverse, Mr. Brown adds.

Securitizers, underwriters, trustees, and insurers are vulnerable
to claims that they conspired with, aided and abetted, or
otherwise supported illegal lending practices of Debtor entities,
Mr. Brown asserts.  These entities, he says, may bring petitions
for protocols for breach-of-warranty, including inflated
appraisals and defective closing documents, which are directly
related to the same issues that borrower claimants can raise
against them.

In addition, borrowers may bring direct claims for relief like
equitable subordination against Trustee Members, making it
inherently impossible for the Trustee Members to adequately
represent the interests of those borrowers, Mr. Brown tells the
Court.

Three Committee members -- AIG Asset Management (U.S.), LLC, MBIA
Insurance Corporation and Financial Guaranty Insurance Company --
are insurers for various mortgage loans and securities and are
also adverse to certain homeowners and one Committee member --
Rowena L. Drennan -- a borrower claimant attorney is not enough
to adequately represent all homeowners, Mr. Brown adds.

A court hearing to consider approval of the motion is scheduled
for September 27.  Objections are due by September 14.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley at Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy Review reports that
Esmark Steel Group LLC is balking at closing on its deal to buy RG
Steel LLC's Yorkville, Ohio, operations, casting a shadow over the
sole bright spot for workers in the steelmaker's collapse.

                          About RG Steel

RG Steel LLC -- http://www.rg-steel.com/-- is the United States'
fourth-largest flat-rolled steel producer with annual steelmaking
capacity of 7.5 million tons. It was formed in March 2011
following the purchase of three steel facilities located in

Ohio, from entities related to Severstal US Holdings LLC. RG
Steel also owns finishing facilities in Yorkville and Martins
Ferry, Ohio. It also owns Wheeling Corrugating Company and has a

sought bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-

restricted the shipment of coke used in the steel production
process.

                           About Rosetta

Located in Rehovot, Israel, Rosetta Genomics Ltd. is seeking to
develop and commercialize new diagnostic tests based on a recently
discovered group of genes known as microRNAs.  MicroRNAs are
naturally expressed, or produced, using instructions encoded in
DNA and are believed to play an important role in normal function
and in various pathologies.  The Company has established a CLIA-
certified laboratory in Philadelphia, which enables the Company to
develop, validate and commercialize its own diagnostic tests
applying its microRNA technology.

In its auditors' report for the 2011 financial statements, Kost
Forer Gabbay & Kasierer, in Tel-Aviv, Israel, expressed
substantial doubt about Rosetta Genomics' ability to continue as a
going concern.  The independent auditors noted that the Company
has incurred recurring operating losses and generated negative
cash flows from operating activities in each of the three years in
the period ended Dec. 31, 2011.

The Company reported a net loss after discontinued operations of
$8.83 million on $103,000 of revenues for 2011, compared with a
net loss after discontinued operations of $14.76 million on
$279,000 of revenues for 2010.

The Company's balance sheet at Dec. 31, 2011, showed $2.04 million
in total assets, $2.40 million in total liabilities, and a
stockholders' deficit of $356,000.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

The Company said in its annual report for the year ended Dec. 31,
2011, "We have used substantial funds to discover, develop and
protect our microRNA tests and technologies and will require
substantial additional funds to continue our operations.  Based on
our current operations, our existing funds, including the proceeds
from the January 2012 debt financing, will only be sufficient to
fund operations until late May, 2012.  We intend to seek funding
through collaborative arrangements and public or private equity
offerings and debt financings.  Additional funds may not be
available to us when needed on acceptable terms, or at all.  In
addition, the terms of any financing may adversely affect the
holdings or the rights of our existing shareholders.  For example,
if we raise additional funds by issuing equity securities, further
dilution to our then-existing shareholders may result.  Debt
financing, if available, may involve restrictive covenants that
could limit our flexibility in conducting future business
activities.  If we are unable to obtain funding on a timely basis,
we may be required to significantly curtail one or more of our
research or development programs.  We also could be required to
seek funds through arrangements with collaborators or others that
may require us to relinquish rights to some of our technologies,
tests or products in development or approved tests or products
that we would otherwise pursue on our own.  Our failure to raise
capital when needed will materially harm our business, financial
condition and results of operations, and may require us to seek
protection under the bankruptcy laws of Israel and the United
States."

producers of newsprint in North America.  SP Recycling
Corporation, a Georgia corporation and the Debtors' other
operating company, was established in 1980 as a means for SP to
secure a ready supply of recycled fiber, a key raw material for
its newsprint.

SPECTRE PERFORMANCE: Wants Shulman Hodges to Handle Avery Case
--------------------------------------------------------------
Spectre Performance seeks authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Central District of California to expand Shulman
Hodges & Bastian LLP's employment to include services necessary to
assist the Debtor to finalize the settlement in the Zina Avery
lawsuit.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on June 15, 2012, the
Debtor sought permission from the Bankruptcy Court to employ
Shulman Hodges as general counsel.  On June 25, 2012, the
Bankruptcy Court approved Shulman Hodges' employment.

"A matter impacting the Debtor's financial affairs has been the
lawsuit styled Anthony and Zina Avery v. Spectre Performance and
Autozone Parts, Inc., pending in the United States District Court
for the Central District of California," the Debtor says.  The
Avery Action involves claims alleging a "class" of purchasers of
Debtor's air filter part number 88-9332, with a subclass of
consumers who suffered economic damage or physical injury as a
result of Debtor's product.  The Debtor and co-defendant Autozone
Parts, Inc., deny the claims and contentions alleged by the
plaintiffs in the Avery Action and specifically deny that there is
any "defect" in the Debtor's air filter products, or that it is
possible for the vehicle to be "stuck" in an "uncontrollable fast
acceleration mode."

Prior to the Petition Date, Stein & Lubin LLP was the counsel of
record for the Debtor in the Avery Action.  While the Debtor
sought court approval of the employment of Stein & Lubin, the fees
and costs for the firm have been paid 100% by Debtor's insurer
Hartford Fire Insurance Company, as part of the coverage related
to the Avery Action.  During the one-year period prior to the
Petition Date, Stein & Lubin received payment of fees and expenses
in the Avery Action from the Insurer in the total amount of
approximately $135,000.  As of the Petition Date, Stein & Lubin
was not a creditor of the Debtor, as all legal fees incurred by
Stein & Lubin prior to the Petition Date were the obligations of
the Insurer, who had paid the fees and costs.  Stein & Lubin has
advised the Debtor that it no longer wants to be employed by the
Debtor for the Avery Action.  The Stein & Lubin employment motion
was dismissed on July 23, 2012.

A motion for preliminary approval of settlement and compromise was
filed with the District Court already and tentatively approved.
Shulman Hodges will assist the Debtor in seeking Bankruptcy Court
approval of the settlement, and if the Bankruptcy Court gives
permission, notice of the settlement can be provided to the Class
and then Shulman Hodges can assist the Debtor to seek final
approval of the settlement in the District Court.  Shulman Hodges
will assist the Debtor with legal matters pending as of the
petition that are the subject of the Avery Action.

With regards to the expanded services for the Avery Action, the
Debtor asks the Bankruptcy Court to be authorized to place in
Shulman Hodges' trust account, on a monthly basis, 80% of the
amount of the firm's monthly fees and 100% of the monthly
expenses.  Shulman Hodges will render the expanded services to the
Debtor at the firm's regular hourly rates:

performed by Shulman Hodges will duplicate the services performed
by other professionals in the case.

Spectre Performance, formerly known as Spectre Industries, filed a
Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 12-21890) in
Riverside, California, on May 14, 2012.  The Company incurred
significant legal costs in defending against lawsuits alleging
false advertising in connection with the marketing and sale of the

signed by Amir Rosenbaum, president.

According to court filings, the Debtor expects that funds will be
available for distribution to unsecured creditors.

Prepetition lender Comerica Bank is represented in the case by
Reed Waddell, Esq., at Frandzel, Robins, Bloom & Csato LLC.

ST. VINCENT'S: Resolves $7-Billion in Claims so Far
---------------------------------------------------
Lisa Uhlman at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that St. Vincent's
Catholic Medical Centers of New York has so far resolved $6.8
billion of the 4,900 claims worth $7.4 billion filed in its
Chapter 11 case, an attorney for the company's liquidating trustee
told a New York bankruptcy judge Thursday.

Updating Chief U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Cecelia G. Morris on the
status of the case, Sarah Link Schultz of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer
& Feld LLP said about $500 million of the resolved claims had been
paid. They are allowed secured administrative priority claims,
Bankruptcy Law360 relates.

                        About Saint Vincents

Saint Vincents Catholic Medical Centers of New York, doing
business as St. Vincent Catholic Medical Centers --
http://www.svcmc.org/-- was anchored by St. Vincent's Hospital
Manhattan, an academic medical center located in Greenwich Village
and the only emergency room on the Westside of Manhattan from
Midtown to Tribeca, St. Vincent's Westchester, a behavioral health
hospital in Westchester County, and continuing care services that
include two skilled nursing facilities in Brooklyn, another on
Staten Island, a hospice, and a home health agency serving the
Metropolitan New York area.

Saint Vincent Catholic Medical Centers of New York and six of its
affiliates first filed for Chapter 11 protection on July 5, 2005
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case Nos. 05-14945 through 05-14951).

St. Vincents Catholic Medical Centers returned to bankruptcy court
by filing another Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No.
10-11963) on April 14, 2010.  The Debtor estimated assets of $348
million against debts totaling $1.09 billion in the new petition.

Although the hospitals emerged from the prior reorganization in
July 2007 with a Chapter 11 plan said to have "a realistic chance"
of paying all creditors in full, the bankruptcy left the medical
center with more than $1 billion in debt.  The new filing occurred
after a $64 million operating loss in 2009 and the last potential
buyer terminated discussions for taking over the flagship
hospital.

Adam C. Rogoff, Esq., and Kenneth H. Eckstein, Esq., at Kramer
Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP, represent the Debtor in its
Chapter 11 effort.

SWIFT AIR: Rejects Deal With NHL's Nashville Predators
------------------------------------------------------
USA Today, citing court documents, reports that Swift Air LLC has
axed its contract with the Nashville Predators, a professional
hockey sports club of the National Hockey League, forcing the team
to make alternative travel plans just weeks before games are
scheduled to begin.

According to the report, a federal bankruptcy judge in Arizona has
ruled that Swift Air could reject its Predators contract as part
of a corporate reorganization plan.

Swift specializes in transporting pro sports teams.  It had been
flying Predators players, coaches and equipment to and from away
games since 2011 under a five-year contract.  According to the
report, the company said in court papers it no longer wants to do
that, saying its reorganization plan "focuses on, among other
things, servicing sports franchises that are only located in the
eastern half of the country."

The report notes Swift also rejected its contracts with the
Colorado Avalanche and a pair of NBA teams, the Denver Nuggets and
Phoenix Suns.  Instead, it kept deals with the Boston Bruins,
Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues and Boston Celtics and
Milwaukee Bucks -- even though Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Louis
are farther west than Nashville, the report adds.

The report says the judge's decision leaves the Predators slightly
more than three weeks to make alternative travel arrangements.
The team, barring a lockout, will open the preseason at the
Florida Panthers on Sept. 24, 2012.

Swift Air LLC filed a Chapter 11 petition in its home-town in
Phoenix (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 12-14362) on June 27, 2012.
Michael W. Carmel, Ltd., serves as counsel.  The Debtor estimated
assets of under $1 million and debts exceeding $10 million.


TAICOM SECURITIES: Trustee Seeks U.S. Court Recognition
-------------------------------------------------------
The trustee of Taicom Securities Co., Ltd., wants the bankruptcy
court in California to enter an order recognizing proceedings in
Japan so that the trustee can pursue claims against the former
owner of the defunct securities firm.

In the Chapter 15 petition filed in Santa Ana, California (Case
No. 12-20383), Akihiro Sakaguchi, the trustee estimated that the
Debtor has less than $10 million in assets and less than $50
million in liabilities.

Founded in 1956, Taicom Securities was a futures commission
merchant from Chuo-ku, Osaka, Japan.  In May 2011, it commenced
its business of accepting securities consignments as an official
transaction participant of the Osaka Securities Exchange

According to court filings by the Trustee, after the fiscal year
ending March 31, 2005, commission fees for commodity, securities
and currency transactions decreased drastically and substantially.
Further, the Debtor posted significant loss in operating income,
pretax profit and net income.  The value of its assets also
substantially declined, and the Debtor became insolvent on
Dec. 15, 2009, and suspended payments to its customers.

On March 31, 2008, Michael Chen Ning, a United States citizen,
acquired more than 96% of the Debtor's shares.  On June 26, 2008,
Mr. Ning became a director of the Debtor, and, Audrey Mari
Kuwabara, a United States citizen and lawyer in the state of
California, became the Debtor's auditor.

The Trustee said that although the Debtor's financial situation
had already significantly declined when Mr. Ning took over,
"unusual and unsound acts" by Mr. Ning further deteriorated the
Debtor's financial condition.

The Trustee cites, among other things, that Mr. Ning and entities
owned or managed by Mr. Ning borrowed funds from the Debtor, which
funds were not repaid.  Among other transactions, Arque Orion
Kabushiki Kaisha, a company affiliated with Mr. Ning, received a
loan of approximately $8.25 million from the Incubator Bank of
Japan, Limited with the Debtor as guarantor of the Arque Loan.  To
support the Debtor's guarantee of the Arque Loan, $8.25 million of
the Debtor's funds were used as collateral and the Debtor was
unable to withdraw any money from the pledge account.  Arque
Kabushiki subsequently defaulted on the Arque Loan and the
Incubator Bank used the Debtor's pledged funds held by the
Incubator Bank to repay the Arque Loan.

The Debtor, Trustee said, suffered substantial and unplanned
decreases in its current assets and operating capital.  The Debtor
was forced to file a liquidation proceeding under Bankruptcy Act
(of Japan) in December 2009.

In December 2011, the trustee obtained a judgment from the Osaka
District Court ordering Mr. Ning to repay money that he previously
borrowed from the Debtor.

Through the Chapter 15 proceeding, the Trustee intends to
domesticate the judgment in the United States to collect and
recover the amounts owed.  In addition, the Debtor may have
additional assets in the United States in the form of claims or
causes of action against entities located in the United States.


TRIBUNE CO: Bank Debt Trades at 25% Off in Secondary Market
-----------------------------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under which Tribune Co. is a
borrower traded in the secondary market at 75.10 cents-on-the-
dollar during the week ended Friday, Aug. 31, an increase of 1.11
percentage points from the previous week according to data
compiled by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM Pricing and reported in The
Wall Street Journal.  The Company pays 300 basis points above
LIBOR to borrow under the facility.  The bank loan matures on May
17, 2014.   The loan is one of the biggest gainers and losers
among 172 widely quoted syndicated loans with five or more bids in
secondary trading for the week ended Friday.

Committee in connection with the lawsuit filed against former
officers and shareholders for the 2007 LBO of Tribune.

Protracted negotiations and mediation efforts and numerous
proposed plans of reorganization filed by Tribune Co. and
competing creditor groups have delayed Tribune's emergence from
bankruptcy.  Many of the disputes among creditors center on the
2007 leveraged buyout fraudulence conveyance claims, the
resolution of which is a key issue in the bankruptcy case.  The
bankruptcy court has scheduled a May 16 hearing on Tribune's plan.

Judge Kevin J. Carey issued an order dated July 13, 2012,
overruling objections to the confirmation of Tribune Co. and its
debtor affiliates' Plan of Reorganization.  Before it formally
emerges from bankruptcy, Tribune must still get approval from the
Federal Communications Commission on new broadcast licenses and
waivers for overlapping ownership of television stations and
newspapers in certain markets.

VIRTUALSCOPICS: Fails Nasdaq's Minimum Bid Price Rule
-----------------------------------------------------
VirtualScopics, Inc. disclosed that on Aug. 29, 2012 it received a
notice from the NASDAQ Stock Market indicating that the Company's
minimum bid price has fallen below $1.00 for 30 consecutive
business days. NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5550(a) (2) requires a
$1.00 minimum bid price for continued listing of an issuer's
common stock.

In accordance with section 5810(c) (3) (A) of the NASDAQ
Marketplace Rules, the Company has until Feb. 25, 2013 to regain
compliance.  The Company can regain compliance with the minimum
bid price rule if the bid price of its common stock closes at
$1.00 or higher for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days
during the 180-day period, although the NASDAQ Stock Market may,
in its discretion, require the Company to maintain a bid price of
at least $1.00 per share for a period in excess of ten consecutive
business days before determining that it has demonstrated the
ability to maintain long-term compliance.

Additionally, if compliance with this Rule cannot be demonstrated
by Feb. 25, 2013, NASDAQ will determine whether the Company meets
the NASDAQ Capital Market initial listing criteria except for the
bid price requirement.  If the Company meets the initial listing
criteria, NASDAQ will notify the Company that it has been granted
an additional 180 calendar day compliance period.  If the Company
is not eligible for an additional compliance period, NASDAQ will
notify the Company that its common stock will be delisted.  At
that time, the Company may appeal this determination to delist its
securities to a Listing Qualification Panel.

The Company is actively pursuing a number of initiatives to bring
the Company into compliance with the minimum share price
requirement.

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

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

            Concurso Mercantil & Chapter 15 Proceedings

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

Early in January 2011, the Mexican Court dismissed the Concurso
Mercantil proceedings.  But an appellate court in Mexico
reinstated the reorganization in April 2011.  Following the
reinstatement, Vitro SAB on April 14, 2011, re-filed a petition
for recognition of its Mexican reorganization in U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Manhattan (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 11- 11754).

The Vitro parent received sufficient acceptances of its
reorganization by using the US$1.9 billion in debt owing to
subsidiaries to vote down opposition by bondholders.  The holders
of US$1.2 billion in defaulted bonds opposed the Mexican
reorganization plan because shareholders could retain ownership
while bondholders aren't being paid in full.

Vitro announced in March 2012 that it has implemented the
reorganization plan approved by a judge in Monterrey, Mexico.

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

                      Chapter 11 Proceedings

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

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

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

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

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

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

The U.S. Vitro companies sold their assets to American Glass
Enterprises LLC, an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners Inc., for
US$55 million.

U.S. subsidiaries of Vitro SAB are having their cases converted
to liquidations in Chapter 7, court records in January 2012 show.
In December, the U.S. Trustee in Dallas filed a motion to convert
the subsidiaries' cases to liquidations in Chapter 7.  The
Justice Department's bankruptcy watchdog said US$5.1 million in
bills were run up in bankruptcy and hadn't been paid.

On June 13, 2012, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Harlin "Cooter" Hale in
Dallas entered a ruling that precluded Vitro from enforcing
its Mexican reorganization plan in the U.S.  The judge ruled that
the Mexican reorganization was "manifestly contrary" to U.S.
public policy because it bars the bondholders from holding Vitro
operating subsidiaries liable to pay on their guarantees of the
bonds.  The Mexican plan reduced the debt of subsidiaries on $1.2
billion in defaulted bonds even though they weren't in bankruptcy
in any country.


WESTERLY HOSPITAL: Court OKs Asset Sale to Lawrence & Memorial
--------------------------------------------------------------
James Mosher at The Bulletin reports that Lawrence & Memorial
Hospital's $69 million purchase of The Westerly Hospital was
approved by Rhode Island Superior Court Associate Justice Brian P.
Stern.

The approval was the penultimate step in the receivership, or
bankruptcy reorganization, of Rhode Island-based Westerly, L&M
said in a press release obtained by The Bulletin.

A Rhode Island regulatory review will be conducted prior to the
transaction's closing, which could come as soon as January, New
London-based L&M said, according to The Bulletin.

Following closing, the report relates that L&M would assume full
control of The Westerly Hospital and its affiliates and assets
including North Stonington Health Center.

The Bulletin notes that in addition to assuming all current
secured debt, L&M has promised an initial injection of $6.5
million in working capital.

The acquisition agreement calls for an investment of $30 million
from L&M over a five-year period to carry out improvements in
technology, equipment, and physical plant, the report says.


* 8th Circ. Backs Broad Reading of Executory Contracts
------------------------------------------------------
Max Stendahl at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a contract between
companies that have fulfilled most but not all of their
obligations to one another is executory, or able to be rejected in
bankruptcy court, the Eighth Circuit said Thursday in a published
decision involving a trademark licensing deal.

Bankruptcy Law360 relates that in a 2-1 opinion, the appeals court
supported a broad reading of Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code,
which allows a bankrupt company to reject an executory contract as
part of its reorganization.


* S&P Gives 'BBpi' Counterparty Credit Ratings on 5 Insurers
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned counterparty credit
and financial strength ratings bearing a 'pi' subscript to seven
U.S. property/casualty insurers. "At the same time, we took
various rating actions on 112 U.S. property/casualty insurers with
ratings bearing a 'pi' subscript, based on statutory financial
data for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011," S&P said.

"Standard & Poor's North American Insurance Ratings has realigned
its coverage of property/casualty insurers in the U.S. with
ratings bearing the 'pi' subscript. The goal of this realignment
is to enhance the value of these ratings to the marketplace by
adding coverage on several larger insurance groups not previously
covered and for which we believe there is market interest in a
rating, while reducing the coverage of smaller companies," S&P
said.

"We will maintain 'pi' ratings on U.S.-based property/casualty
insurance groups with at least $500 million in net earned premiums
(NEP) in 2011 that we do not rate interactively. Therefore, we
have assigned ratings bearing the 'pi' subscript to three groups
(six legal entities) that were previously unrated but meet this
threshold. In addition, we took various rating actions and
subsequently withdrew ratings on three groups (five rated legal
entities)," S&P said.

"Including interactively rated companies, we rate insurers
covering approximately 90% of the U.S. property/casualty insurance
market (based on NEP) and 95% of the U.S. life insurance market
(based on total assets). Continuing our current practice, we will
not assign ratings with a 'pi' subscript to U.S. subsidiaries or
affiliates of interactively rated insurers, regardless of company
size," S&P said.

"Of the seven companies to which we assigned new ratings, two are
rated 'BBBpi', and five are rated 'BBpi''. We affirmed our ratings
on 89 companies, lowered our ratings on 11 companies, and withdrew
ratings on five companies because their premium volumes fall below
the scale threshold. Of the five companies on which we withdrew
our ratings, two had been rated 'BBBpi' and three had been rated
'BBpi'," S&P said.

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.
