assistance of an accountant to review and analyze reports of the
receiver who is in possession of and largely operating the
Debtor's assets; provide ongoing financial reporting and
bookkeeping; complete accurate monthly operating reports; and
perform any necessary accountancy in connection with sale of
assets.

                       About 1617 Westcliff

1617 Westcliff, LLC, filed a bare-bones Chapter 11 petition
(Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 12-19326) on Aug. 2, 2012, in Santa

9920 FLORA VISTA: S&P Cuts Housing Revenue Bond Rating to 'BB-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term rating on
Bellflower, Calif.'s multifamily housing revenue bonds (9920 Flora
Vista - Bellflower Terrace Seniors) series 2002A to 'BB-' from
'AA+'. The outlook is negative. The bonds are backed by a mortgage
loan that is secured by an irrevocable standby Fannie Mae credit
enhancement facility.

"The downgrade is based on our view of the project's inability to
pay full and timely debt service on the bonds sufficiently," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Renee J. Berson.

S&P's rating reflects its view:

  -- The revenues from mortgage debt service payments and
     investment earnings are insufficient to pay full and timely
     debt service on the bonds plus fees beyond 2021;

  -- The inability to cover the excess call from the excess
     revenues as anticipated; and

  -- The asset/liability parity below the benchmark from Dec.
     2021.

Credit strengths include S&P's opinion:

  -- The investments held in Wells Fargo Advantage Government
     money market fund (AAAm);

  -- The high credit quality of the irrevocable standby Fannie Mae
     credit enhancement facility, which S&P considered to be 'AA+'
     eligible;

  -- The assets that are insufficient to cover the reinvestment
     risk required for special redemptions as of Sept. 30, 2012;
     and

  -- An asset-to-liability ratio of 100.10% as of Sept. 30, 2012.

"Standard & Poor's has analyzed available updated financial
statements. We believe the bonds are unable to meet all bond costs
from transaction revenues until the remarketing date," S&P said.


A123 SYSTEMS: Received $1-Mil. Grant From Obama Administration
--------------------------------------------------------------
Ayesha Rascoe at Reuters reports A123 Systems Inc. told lawmakers
investigating its government grant that the Obama administration
provided nearly $1 million on the day it filed for bankruptcy.

A123 in October received $946,830 as part of its $249 million
clean energy grant from the Energy Department, the company said in
a letter, obtained by Reuters, to Republican Senators John Thune
and Chuck Grassley.

According to Reuters, in the letter, dated Nov. 14, A123 said the
October payment was the most recent disbursement it had received
from the government, with an additional $115.8 million still
outstanding on the grant.  Messrs. Thune and Grassley have pressed
the Energy Department for more details about its funding of A123
as the company has faltered.

"The Department of Energy needs to answer for why it appears to
put federal grants on auto-pilot to the detriment of U.S.
taxpayers," the report quotes the two senators as stating.  "This
can't stand."

The report relates A123 said it may still need to use the rest of
its grant money if it decides to update or expand its current
manufacturing capacity.

The report says, under the department's grant program, companies
receive funds only after work is completed toward the ultimate
goal of a grant.

The report relates Energy Department spokesman, Bill Gibbons, said
the department's investments have helped to build U.S. advanced
battery manufacturing, supported American workers and ensured the
country can compete in a fiercely competitive global market.

Lance Duroni at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that two Republican
lawmakers blasted the Obama administration on Friday for handing
A123 Systems nearly $1 million from a federal grant on the very
day the company filed for bankruptcy.

U.S. Sens. John Thune, R-S.D., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said in
a statement that the continued government funding of A123 even as
it toppled into bankruptcy while being chased by a foreign suitor,
Chinese auto parts giant Wanxiang Group Corp., "paints a
disturbing picture," according to Bankruptcy Law360.

                        About A123 Systems

Based in Waltham, Massachusetts, A123 Systems Inc. designs,
develops, manufactures and sells advanced rechargeable lithium-ion
batteries and battery systems and provides research and
development services to government agencies and commercial
customers.

A123 is the recipient of a $249 million federal grant from the
Obama administration.  Pre-bankruptcy, A123 had an agreement to
sell an 80% stake to Chinese auto-parts maker Wanxiang Group Corp.
U.S. lawmakers opposed the deal over concerns on the transfer of
American taxpayer dollars and technology to China.

A123 didn't make a $2.7 million payment due Oct. 15 on $143.75
million in 3.75% convertible subordinated notes due 2016.

A123 and U.S. affiliates, A123 Securities Corporation and Grid
Storage Holdings LLC, sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
(Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 12-12859 to 12-12861) on Oct. 16, 2012,
with a deal to sell its auto-business assets to Johnson Controls
Inc.  The deal with JCI is valued at $125 million, and subject to
higher offers at a bankruptcy auction.

A123 disclosed assets of $459.8 million and liabilities totaling
$376 million.  Debt includes $143.8 million on 3.75% convertible
subordinated notes.  Other liabilities include $22.5 million on a
bridge loan owing to Wanziang.  About $33 million is owed to trade
suppliers.

The Hon. Kevin J. Carey presides over the case.  Lawyers at
Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., and Latham & Watkins LLP serve as
the Debtors' counsel.  Lazard Freres & Co. LLC acts as the
Debtors' financial advisors, while Alvarez & Marsal serves as
restructuring advisors.  Logan & Company Inc. serves as the
Debtors' claims and noticing agent.  Wanxiang America Corporation
and Wanxiang Clean Energy USA Corp. are represented in the case by
lawyers at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, and Sidley Austin
LLP.  JCI is represented in the case by Josh Feltman, Esq., at
Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz LLP.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case.  The Committee is represented by William R. Baldiga,
Esq., at Brown Rudnick LLP, and Mark Minuti, Esq., at Saul Ewing
LLP.


A123 SYSTEMS: Wanxiang Promises to Preserve Jobs, Plants
--------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Fitzgerald, writing for Dow Jones' Daily Bankruptcy
Review, reports that Wanxiang America Corp., which is looking to
acquire assets of A123 Systems Inc., said it would employ the
firm's U.S. workers and plants if its bid is accepted.  According
to the report, Wanxiang said its offer would best preserve the
"integrity" of the battery maker and the jobs of A123's 2,400
employees.

"Wanxiang has a long history as a technology and automotive
company, operating in the United States to ensure plants remain
productive and local U.S. employees keep their jobs," said Pin Ni,
Wanxiang America's president, in a letter to A123 Chief Executive
David Vieau that appears designed to appease congressional
critics, the report notes.

Wanxiang has offered about $131 million for A123's assets,
excluding its government business, according to a person familiar
with the Wanxiang proposal, Dow Jones reports.  Johnson Controls
Inc. separately offered $125 million for the company's auto assets
when it filed for bankruptcy.

According to the report, representatives of A123 and Johnson
Controls declined to comment.

An auction for A123's assets will be held Dec. 6 at the Chicago
office of Latham & Watkins, A123's counsel.

Dow Jones notes according to an A123 adviser the auction could
last several days given the complexity of the business and the
level of interest in the battery maker.

Lawyers for electronics makers Siemens AG, of Germany, and NEC
Corp., of Japan, have indicated they were interested in bidding on
A123 assets.

AFA FOODS: WARN Class Asks Judge to Deny Exclusivity Extension
--------------------------------------------------------------
Jamie Santo at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a putative class of
ex-employees suing "pink slime" maker AFA Foods Inc. asked a
Delaware bankruptcy judge Wednesday to deny the company an
extension of its exclusivity period to file a Chapter 11 plan,
repeating their call for a Chapter 7 conversion.

The TCR reported on Nov. 9, 2012, AFA Investment Inc., et al., ask
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to extend
their exclusive periods to file and solicit acceptances for the
proposed chapter 11 plan until Jan.
28, 2013, and March 28, respectively.

The Debtors explained in their second exclusivity extension that
they need additional time to finalize the global settlement
agreement with the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, the
second lien agent and other settlement parties, on the key
remaining disputes in the cases.

                           About AFA Foods

King of Prussia, Pennsylvania-based AFA Foods Inc. was one of the
largest processors of ground beef products in the United States.
The Company had five processing facilities and two ancillary
facilities across the country with annual processing capacity of
800 million pounds.  AFA had seven facilities capable of producing
800 million pound of ground beef annually.  Revenue in 2011 was
$958 million.

Yucaipa Cos. acquired the business in 2008 and currently owns 92%
of the common stock and all of the preferred stock.

AFA Foods, AFA Investment Inc. and other affiliates filed for
Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-11127) on
April 2, 2012, after recent changes in the market for its ground
beef products and the impact of negative media coverage related to
boneless lean beef trimmings -- BLBT -- affected sales.

Judge Mary Walrath presides over the case.  Lawyers at Jones Day
and Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP serve as the Debtors'
counsel.  FTI Consulting Inc. serves as financial advisors and
Imperial Capital LLC serves as marketing consultants.  Kurtzman
Carson Consultants LLC serves as noticing and claims agent.

As of Feb. 29, 2012, on a consolidated basis, the Debtors' books
and records reflected approximately $219 million in assets and
$197 million in liabilities.  AFA Foods, Inc., disclosed
$615,859,574 in assets and $544,499,689 in liabilities as of the
Petition Date.

Roberta A. DeAngelis, U.S. Trustee for Region 3, appointed seven
members to the official committee of unsecured creditors in the
Chapter 11 cases of AFA Investment Inc., AFA Foods and their
debtor-affiliates.  The Committee has obtained approval to hire
McDonald Hopkins LLC as lead counsel and Potter Anderson &
Corroon LLP serves as co-counsel.  The Committee also obtained
approval to retain J.H. Cohn LLP as its financial advisor, nunc
pro tunc to April 13, 2012.

AFA, in its Chapter 11 case, sold plants and paid off the first-
lien lenders and the loan financing the Chapter 11 effort.
Remaining assets are $14 million cash and the right to file
lawsuits.

General Electric Capital Corp. and Bank of America Corp. provided
about $60 million in DIP financing.  The loan was paid off in
July.

In October 2012, the Bankruptcy Court denied a settlement that
would have released Yucaipa Cos., the owner and junior lender to
AFA Foods, from claims and lawsuits the creditors might otherwise
bring, in exchange for cash to pay unsecured creditors' claims
under a liquidating Chapter 11 plan.  Under the deal, Yucaipa
would receive $11.2 million from the $14 million, with the
remainder earmarked for unsecured creditors.  Asset recoveries
above $14 million would be split with Yucaipa receiving 90% and
creditors 10%.  Proceeds from lawsuits would be divided roughly
50-50.


ALLEN SYSTEMS: S&P Cuts CCR to 'D' on Missed Interest Payment
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
ratings on Allen Systems Group Inc. to 'D'  from 'CCC-'. "We also
lowered our issue-level rating on its first-lien senior secured
loan to 'CC' from 'CCC+'. The recovery rating on its first-lien
senior secured loan remains at '1', indicating our expectation for
a very high (90% to 100%) recovery in the event of payment
default.  In addition, we lowered our issue-level rating on the
senior secured second-lien notes to 'D' from 'CC'.  The recovery
rating on these notes is unchanged at '5', reflecting our
expectation for modest recovery (10% to 30%) in the event of a
payment default," S&P said.

"The rating action follows the missed interest payment on the
company's 10.5% senior secured second-lien notes due 2016, which
was due on Nov. 15, 2012," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Katarzyna Nolan. "A payment default has not occurred relative to
the legal provisions of the notes, which allow for a 30-day grace
period."

"Under our criteria, however, we consider the extension of a due
payment of interest or principal as tantamount to a default if the
payment falls later than five business days (which was Nov. 15,
2012, for Allen Systems) after the scheduled due date," S&P said.

"Although the company has entered into a commitment letter with
TPG Opportunity Partners that contemplates the full refinancing of
the existing first-lien facility, as well as the payment of the
missed second-lien interest at or before consummation of the
financing, we don't believe that the second-lien interest payment
will occur within five business days after the scheduled due date,
due to the uncertain timing of closing of the financing," S&P
said.

"In addition, the company hasn't been in compliance with its total
leverage, fixed-charge coverage, and minimum liquidity covenants
since June 30, 2012. During October 2012, the company entered into
a forbearance agreement with the required lenders under the credit
agreement. However, the forbearance agreement expired on Nov. 7,
2012," S&P said.


AMERICAN AIRLINES: Supreme Court Lone Avenue to Stop PSA Election
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that AMR Corp., the parent of American Airlines Inc., has
only one more shot at stopping passenger-service agents from
holding an election to determine whether they will have a union.
As the result of a ruling Nov. 19 from the U.S. Circuit Court of
Appeals in New Orleans, the U.S. Supreme Court is AMR's only
remaining hope at stopping the election.

The report recounts that the bankrupt airline won a victory in
June when a federal district judge in Dallas ruled that the
National Mediation Board was improperly holding an election by
passenger-service agents because 50% hadn't shown a desire for
union representation.  The NMB and the Communications Workers of
America appealed, contending only 35% was required.

According to the report, the U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans
sided with the workers in ruling on Oct. 3 that the NMB was
correct in using a 35% threshold.  AMR sought rehearing in the
appeals court and lost on Oct. 30.  AMR returned to the appeals
court on Nov. 8 asking the circuit judges to hold up the election
while the airline applies to the Supreme Court for permission to
appeal.  On Nov. 19, the appeals court decided not to hold up the
election.

Mr. Rochelle notes the airline still has the right to ask the
Supreme Court for a stay while seeking permission to appeal. AMR
contends there are conflicting opinions among the circuit courts
justifying an appeal to the country's highest court.

The Communications Workers, the report relates, said the NMB
scheduled the vote to begin Dec. 4 and continue through Jan. 15.
The union said the airline "spent nearly a year and millions of
dollars trying to block employees' democratic right to vote."

The appeal is American Airlines Inc. v. National Mediation
Board, 12-10680, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit
(New Orleans).

                      About American Airlines

AMR Corp. and its subsidiaries including American Airlines, the

AURORA DIAGNOSTICS: S&P Cuts CCR to 'B-' on Lower MEDICARE Rates
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Palm Beach Gardens, Florida-based Aurora Diagnostics
Holdings LLC to 'B-' from 'B'.

"We also lowered our rating on subsidiary Aurora Diagnostics LLC's
senior secured debt to 'B+', two notches above the corporate
credit rating, from 'BB-', and our rating on Aurora Diagnostics
Holdings LLC's senior unsecured debt to 'CCC', two notches below
the corporate credit rating, from 'CCC+'. We affirmed our '1'
recovery rating on the senior secured debt, indicating our
expectation for very high (90% to 100%) recovery of principal, and
our '6' recovery rating on the senior unsecured debt, indicating
our expectation for negligible (0 to 10%) recovery of principal,
both in the event of payment default," S&P said.

"The ratings on Aurora Diagnostics Holdings LLC, a provider of
anatomic pathology (AP) diagnostic services, continue to reflect
the company's "vulnerable" business risk profile (according to our
criteria), unchanged as a result of the CMS decision," S&P said.

"We downgraded the company because we expect the Medicare rate cut
to substantially reduce Aurora's revenues, EBITDA generation, and
cash flow, beginning in 2013 and to hinder its ability to generate
cash over the next few years," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Gail Hessol. "We previously expected Aurora to borrow
modestly in 2012 and 2013 to finance large earn-out payments, and
then to resume generating discretionary cash flow after earn-out
payments in 2014."

"The rating outlook is negative, reflecting the possibility that
Aurora's cost-reduction initiatives will not sufficiently offset
the Medicare rate cut and other market pressures, and the
potential for slim headroom under Aurora's loan covenant. We would
consider lowering the rating if liquidity is impaired, evidenced
by a projected loan covenant cushion below 10%, limited revolver
availability, or our belief that after 2013 Aurora could not
generate cash after earn-out payments. We would consider revising
the outlook to stable if Aurora is able to reduce its costs or
take other actions that enable it to generate cash after earn-out
payments, and we expect the covenant cushion to stay above 15%,"
S&P said.


BELLWEST HOLDINGS: Creditors' Proofs of Claim Due Dec. 24

Bellwest Holdings LLC, owner of a property in Surprise, Arizona,
filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Ariz. Case No. 12-20126) on
Sept. 10, 2012, in Tucson.  The Debtor, a single asset real estate
under 11 U.S.C. Sec. 101 (51B), estimated assets and debts of
$10 million to $50 million in the petition.

Bankruptcy Judge Eileen W. Hollowell presides over the case.  Eric
Slocum Sparks, Esq., at Eric Slocum Sparks PC, in Tucson, Ariz.,
serves as counsel.

BELO CORP: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB' on Reduced Debt Leverage
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its ratings on Dallas-
based TV broadcaster Belo Corp., including the corporate credit
rating, to 'BB' from 'BB-'. "At the same time, we are maintaining
our stable rating outlook on the company," S&P said.

"The rating action reflects our expectation that Belo will reduce
its eight-quarter trailing debt leverage to less than 4x with the
redemption of its 6.75% senior notes at the end of November and
will maintain leverage below 4x over at least the next two years,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Naveen Sarma.

"The rating reflects Belo's geographic and revenue concentration
in Texas, and our assumption that the company's TV stations will
maintain good audience ratings compared with local competitors.
Belo has a 'satisfactory' business risk profile, based on our
criteria, because of its strong local market positions,
diversified network affiliations, and high EBITDA margin. Belo's
financial risk profile is 'significant,' in our view, as we expect
the company to maintain its adjusted debt to latest-eight-quarter
EBITDA ratio at less than 4x. As of Sept. 30, 2012, leverage,
adjusted for pension costs and operating leases, was 4.1x, but
will decline to about 3.6x with the redemption of the 2013 senior
notes and modest draw-down of the $200 million revolver," S&P
said.

"Belo owns 20 TV stations in 15 large and midsize TV markets,
reaching about 14% of U.S. TV households. The company operates
more than one station in six of its markets--a structure that
generates operating efficiencies. Most of Belo's TV stations rank
first or second in audience ratings for their local news
broadcasts. This competitive positioning is important to
attracting political advertising. However, the company's four TV
stations in Texas contribute 41% of total revenue, which we regard
as a geographic concentration risk," S&P said.


BERNARD L. MADOFF: Bro-in-Law Loses Standing Defense to Suit
------------------------------------------------------------
Brian Mahoney at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that U.S. District
Judge Jed Rakoff ruled that Bernard L. Madoff's brother-in-law
cannot use a standing argument in his bid to toss a clawback suit
launched by the trustee liquidating Madoff's investment firm,
saying a bankruptcy court can decide whether the trustee has
standing.

Bankruptcy Law360 relates that Judge Rakoff said that, while the
constitutional standing of trustee Irving Picard is an important
threshold for avoidance and recovery claims, the case against
Madoff's brother-in-law Robert Roman does not present a
sufficiently significant constitutional problem.

                      About Bernard L. Madoff

Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC and Bernard L. Madoff
orchestrated the largest Ponzi scheme in history, with losses
topping US$50 billion.  On Dec. 15, 2008, the Honorable Louis A.
Stanton of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
New York granted the application of the Securities Investor
Protection Corporation for a decree adjudicating that the
customers of BLMIS are in need of the protection afforded by the
Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970.  The District Court's
Protective Order (i) appointed Irving H. Picard, Esq., as trustee
for the liquidation of BLMIS, (ii) appointed Baker & Hostetler LLP
as his counsel, and (iii) removed the SIPA Liquidation proceeding
to the Bankruptcy Court (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Adv. Pro. No. 08-01789)
(Lifland, J.).  Mr. Picard has retained AlixPartners LLP as claims
agent.

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

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

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

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

The SIPA Trustee has said that as of March 31, 2012, through
prepetition litigation and other settlements, he has successfully
recovered, or reached agreements to recover, more than $9 billion
-- over 50% of the principal lost in the Ponzi scheme by those who
filed claims -- for the benefit of all customers of BLMIS.
The liquidation has so far has cost the Securities Investor
Protection Corp. $1.3 billion, including $791 million to pay a
portion of customers' claims.

Mr. Picard has so far made only one distribution in October of
$325 million for 1,232 customer accounts.  Uncertainty created by
the appeals has limited Mr. Picard's ability to distribute
recovered funds.  Outstanding appeals include the $5 billion
Picower settlement and the $1.025 billion settlement.


BIOFUELS POWER: Delays Form 10-Q for Third Quarter
--------------------------------------------------
Biofuels Power Corp.'s financial statements for the quarter ended
Sept. 30, 2012, are not yet ready for distribution as a result of
recent measures the Company has taken with regard to efforts to
sign operating agreements which will effect subsequent events at
the balance sheet date.

                          Biofuels Power

Humble, Tex.-based Biofuels Power Corporation is a distributed
energy company that is pioneering the use of biodiesel to fuel
small electric generating facilities that are located in close
proximity to end-users.  BPC's first power plant is currently
located near Houston, Texas in the city of Oak Ridge North.

The Company reported a net loss of $1.28 million on $0 of sales in
2011, compared with a net loss of $2.05 million on $0 of sales in
2010.

The Company's balance sheet at June 30, 2012, showed $1.54 million
in total assets, $6.71 million in total liabilities and a $5.16
million total stockholders' deficit.

Following the 2011 results, Clay Thomas, P.C., in Houston, Texas,
expressed substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.  The independent auditors noted that
the Company has suffered significant losses and will require
additional capital to develop its business until the Company
either (1) achieves a level of revenues adequate to generate
sufficient cash flows from operations; or (2) obtains additional
financing necessary to support its working capital requirements.


BURLINGTON INT'L AIRPORT: Moody's Rates $26.4-Mil. Bonds 'Ba1'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Ba1 rating to City of
Burlington's $26.4 million Airport Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series
2012. Concurrently, Moody's has affirmed the Ba1 rating on the
airport's outstanding parity debt. The outlook is negative.

Issue: Airport Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series 2012A (Non-AMT);
Rating: Ba1; Sale Amount: $18,555,000; Expected Sale Date:
11/23/2012; Rating Description: Revenue: Government Enterprise

Issue: Airport Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series 2012B (AMT);
Rating: Ba1; Sale Amount: $7,600,000; Expected Sale Date:
11/23/2012; Rating Description: Revenue: Government Enterprise

Issue: Airport Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series 2012C (Taxable);
Rating: Ba1; Sale Amount: $230,000; Expected Sale Date:
11/23/2012; Rating Description: Revenue: Government Enterprise

Ratings Rationale

The Ba1 rating reflects weakness in the airport's market position
shown by recent enplanement declines as well as its financial
volatility shown in recent years. The rating also recognizes the
airport's diverse carrier base and revenue mix, and improving
liquidity and financial performance. The fundamental strength of
the Burlington economy is incorporated in the rating, coupled with
the lack of direct competition that is likely supportive of future
increased rates and charges at the airport.

Strengths

* Large education and health care presence in City of Burlington,
   VT

* Diversity of the airport revenues, including significant
   parking and concession revenues aside from airline derived
   revenues

* Diversified airline carrier mix that minimizes passenger
   diversion to airports in Albany, NY and Manchester, New
   Hampshire NH

Challenges

* Volatile financial performance evidenced by debt service
   coverage below rate covenant of 1.25x in FY2009 and FY2010

* Low liquidity compared to Moody's airport sector median as
   measured by less than 20 days cash on hand in FY2011

* Declining enplanements from FY2010 to FY2012 and further
   declines in the first four months of FY2013

Outlook

The negative outlook reflects the airport's continuing enplanement
declines and uncertainty regarding financial performance in the
next 12 months. The outlook also acknowledges the City of
Burlington's negative outlook.

What Could Change the Rating - UP

The rating could be pressured upward if the airport experiences
reliable, sustainable enplanement growth, improves debt service
coverage to above 1.4x (calculated per bond ordinance) on a
sustained basis and is able to restore and maintain liquidity to a
reasonable level. The rating could benefit from the improvement of
liquidity position where the airport no longer requires city
support.

What Could Change the Rating - DOWN

The rating could be pressured downward if liquidity and debt
service coverage falls below current levels, and if leverage
increases are not supported by enplanements. Also, the rating
could face negative pressure if the FAA inquiry regarding possible
grant program violations at the airport have a material impact.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Airports with
Unregulated Rate Setting published in July 2011.

strategic alternatives, we continue to push the process forward
and we'll provide an update as events develop."

As of Nov. 14, 2012, 100,112,960 shares of the Company's common

CATASYS INC: Incurs $257,000 Net Loss in Third Quarter
------------------------------------------------------
Catasys, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $257,000 on $140,000 of total revenues for the three months
ended Sept. 30, 2012, compared with a net loss of $2.32 million on
$57,000 of total revenues for the same period during the prior
year.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2012, the Company reported a
net loss of $5.88 million on $362,000 of total revenues, compared

As of Nov. 14, 2012, the Company had a balance of approximately

statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, Rose, Snyder & Jacobs
LLP, in Encino, California, expressed substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The independent
auditors noted that the Company has incurred significant operating
losses and negative cash flows from operations during the year
ended Dec. 31, 2011.

The Company reported a net loss of $8.12 million in 2011, compared
with a net loss of $19.99 million in 2010.


CENGAGE LEARNING: S&P Cuts CCR to 'CCC' on Weak Performance
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on Stamford, Conn.-based Cengage Learning Holdings II L.P.
to 'CCC' from 'B-'. The outlook is negative.

"We have lowered our issue-level ratings on the company's debt by
two notches in conjunction with the downgrade. Our recovery
ratings on the company's debt issues remain unchanged," S&P said.

"The downgrade reflects weak operating performance in the fiscal
first quarter ended Sept. 30, 2012, which we expect will continue
over the near term," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Hal
Diamond.

"The company's senior leverage ratio, as defined in its credit
agreement, increased to 6.72x at Sept. 30, 2012, from 4.78x at
June 30, 2012, precipitously narrowing the EBITDA margin of
compliance to 13% from 38%. We believe Cengage will need to amend
covenants to maintain compliance, based on our expectation that
EBITDA will decline for the remainder of its fiscal year ending
June 30, 2013, and into fiscal 2014. Also, the company has $2.08
billion of low-cost term loans due July 2014, as well as $654
million of long-term public debt due 2015, which are trading at
what we regard as a distressed yield. We believe that the costs of
refinancing would be prohibitive and result in interest coverage
below 1x and negative discretionary cash flow," S&P said.

"Our corporate credit rating on Cengage reflects our expectation
that the company will face difficulty maintaining compliance with
its senior leverage covenant and refinancing its 2014 and 2015
debt maturities. We consider the company's business risk profile
as 'weak' (according to our criteria), based on its eroding
business position in U.S. higher education and professional
training publishing, and competitive obstacles facing this
business. We assess Cengage's financial risk profile as 'highly
leveraged,' reflecting thin interest coverage and low
discretionary cash flow compared with its debt burden, as well as
its hurdles to refinancing," S&P said.

"Cengage is the second largest U.S. college textbook publisher and
lacks the breadth and financial resources of Pearson PLC, the
market leader. However, Cengage has been adversely affected by the
growth of the rental textbook market, which has increased the
availability of discounted used books. Cengage's sales to for-
profit educational institutions are declining, because these
buyers are experiencing enrollment pressures as a result of
regulation that significantly tightens their marketing practices.
In addition, lower funding from state and local governments is
hurting the company's library reference and supplemental
publishing businesses," S&P said.


CHELAN COUNTY: S&P Cuts SPUR on General Obligation Debt to 'BB+'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term rating
and underlying rating (SPUR) to 'BB+' from 'BBB-' on Chelan County
Public Hospital District No. 1 (Cascade Medical Center), Wash.'s
general obligation (GO) debt. The outlook is stable.

"The rating action reflects our view of the district's weakening
property tax base in 2012, which could complicate its financial
recovery following a major facility upgrade, and its longer-than-
planned process of replacing its CEO, although we understand that
the district made its interim CEO permanent in 2012," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Chris Morgan.

The rating further reflects S&P's view of the district's:

-- Potential service demand and tax base fluctuations associated
    with a local economy focused on tourism, second homes, and
    agriculture;

-- Small operating size, which leaves the hospital vulnerable to
    wide revenue swings related to small utilization changes;

-- Financial strain associated with a recently completed
    renovation project and upcoming costs associated with a
    planned information technology upgrade under consideration;
    and

-- Reliance on property taxes to offset operating losses; and
    High leverage of 85% long-term debt to capitalization in 2011.

"The stable outlook reflects our view that the recent facility
upgrade has weakened the district's financial position but that
the improvements could also support higher patient volumes and
associated positive effects on operating performance," S&P said.

COOPERATIVE COMMS: Judge Extends Plan Filing Deadline to March 7
----------------------------------------------------------------
Linda Moss at The (N.J.) Record reports that U.S. Bankruptcy Court
Judge Novalyn Winfield has extended the Cooperative Communications
Inc.'s deadline to file a Chapter 11 plan of reorganization to
March 7, 2013, and solicit acceptances of that plan to July 8,
2013.

According to the report, the company originally had until Nov. 7,
2012, to file a reorganization plan, and until Jan. 7, 2013, to
seek acceptances for it from its creditors.

The report relates Cooperative Communications' lawyer, Ilana
Volkov, said the company's case was complex and that it hadn't had
sufficient time to craft an exit strategy yet.

"Although the debtor's Chapter 11 case is not particularly
complex, the debtor does operate in a heavily regulated and
competitive industry," the report says citing court documents.
"As a result, the debtor has had to navigate several intricate
customer-related issues, such as preserving the confidentiality of
its client information and protecting its client base from
aggressive tactics of competitors.  These matters have been
extremely time consuming."

The report relates, in September, Louis Lombardi Jr., the chief
operating officer of Cooperative Communications, said the company
wasn't having financial problems.  The company, founded in 1990,
was in a dispute with Verizon Communications Inc., and filed for
Chapter 11 to keep the New York-based telecom giant from cutting
off service to it, Mr. Lombardi said at the time.  Cooperative
Communications had come to terms with its creditors, he added.

The report notes Cooperative Communications has been paying its
debts, but needs more time to devise an exit strategy from
bankruptcy protection.

Based Lyndhurst, New Jersey, Cooperative Communications Inc. filed
for Chapter 11 protection on July 10, 2012 (Bankr. D. N.J. Case
No. 12-27319).  Judge Novalyn L. Winfield presides over the case.
Ilana Volkov, Esq., at Cole, Schotz, Meisel, Forman & Leonard,
P.A., represents the Debtor.  The Debtor both estimated assets and
debts of between $1 million and $10 million.


CULLMAN REGIONAL: Moody's Affirms 'Ba1' Rating on $66MM Bonds
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the Ba1 rating assigned to
Cullman Regional Medical Center's (CRMC) $66 million of
outstanding Series 2009A bonds. The outlook remains negative.

Summary Ratings Rationale

Affirmation of the Ba1 rating is attributable to CRMC's good
market position as the only hospital in Cullman County and
steadily improving balance sheet reserves over the last few years.
In addition, there is indication that core operating performance
improved in fiscal year (FY) 2012, although bad debt write offs
suppressed reported profitability.

The rating is constrained by a high debt load and below average
operating performance resulting in thin debt service coverage and
relatively high debt-to-cash flow metrics. Maintenance of the
negative outlook, despite some positive trends related to
reimbursement and indication that core operating performance
improved in FY 2012, is due to the inconsistent nature of CRMC's
financial performance, inability to meet budget over the last
several years, and recent negative volume trends.

Strengths

* CRMC is the only hospital in Cullman County and owns all the
   available bed licenses following the purchase and closure of
   the only competitor in 2009

* CRMC recently qualified for sole community provider status
   under Medicare, which is expected to increase Medicare
   reimbursement by $3 million annually with no incremental
   expense

* Multi-year trend of strengthening balance sheet metrics with
   growth in unrestricted cash to $30.3 million by fiscal yearend
   (FYE) 2012, equating to 120 days cash on hand; cash-to-debt
   remains weak at 43% yet both measures are the strongest they
   have been in many years

* Physician stability over the past year, providing some
   utilization stability for this small hospital

* Successful affiliation with University of Alabama Hospital (UAB
   Hospital) for interventional cardiology services that has
   reduced cardiology outmigration and helped keep services at
   CRMC

Challenges

* Large write off of accounts receivable that was accumulated
   over several years totaling $4 million with $2.3 million
   recognized in the statement of operations in FY 2012 and $1.7
   million to be recognized in FY 2013

* Two consecutive years of declining patient volumes as measured
   by combined inpatient admissions and observation stays; Moody's
   notes that the decline has largely been in observation stays,
   thereby allowing the organization to maintain admissions at a
   consistent level; additionally, acuity levels have declined

* Second year of negative revenue growth with total operating
   revenue declining to $92.6 million in FY 2012 from $95.7
   million (revenue reported with bad debt as a contra revenue)

* Difficulty meeting budget; CRMC has missed budget in each of
   the last several years often resulting in an operating loss
   when an operating gain was budgeted

* Very challenging payer mix with high exposure to bad debt and
   self-pay

* Small hospital with high debt load resulting in a very high 76%
   debt-to-revenue

Outlook

Maintenance of the negative outlook reflects Moody's view that
operating performance remains volatile and has not improved
sufficiently to warrant a stable outlook, while taking into
account the growth in unrestricted cash and improved balance sheet
metrics.

What Could Make The Rating Go UP

Improvement and stabilization of operating performance;
improvement in leverage metrics to a level consistent with an
investment grade rating

What Could Make The Rating Go DOWN

Weak operating performance in FY 2013, further revenue or patient
declines, weakening of balance sheet metrics, additional debt

Principal Methodology Used

The principal methodology used in this rating was Not-For-Profit
Healthcare Rating Methodology published in March 2012.


CYCLONE POWER: Delays Third Quarter Form 10-Q for Review
--------------------------------------------------------
Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc., was unable to file its quarterly
report on Form 10-Q for the period ended Sept. 30, 2012, by the
prescribed date without unreasonable effort or expense because the
Company's financial review with its auditors is in process and has
not been completed.  The Company believes that the Quarterly
Report will be completed within the five day extension period
provided under Rule 12b-25 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

compared with a net loss of $2.02 million in 2010.

In its audit report for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, results,
Mallah Furman, in Fort Lauderdale, FL, noted that the Company's
dependence on outside financing, lack of sufficient working
capital, and recurring losses raises substantial doubt about its
ability to continue as a going concern.

DDR CORP: Fitch Affirms Low Ratings on Several Sr. Unsecured Loans
------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has revised the Rating Outlook on DDR Corp. (NYSE:
DDR) to Positive from Stable.  In addition, Fitch affirmed the
following credit ratings of DDR:

  -- Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'BB+';
  -- Senior unsecured revolving credit facilities at 'BB+';
  -- Senior unsecured term loans at 'BB+';
  -- Senior unsecured notes at 'BB+';
  -- Senior unsecured convertible notes at 'BB+';
  -- Preferred stock at 'BB-'.

The Positive Outlook reflects Fitch's expectation that DDR's
credit profile will improve to a level consistent with a 'BBB-'
IDR over the next 12-24 months.  The Outlook reflects the
expansion of net operating income from a prime shopping center
portfolio, a granular roster of retailer tenants that are well
positioned entering the holiday season, and a fixed-charge
coverage ratio that is expected to sustain at levels appropriate
for the 'BBB-' rating due to upward leasing spreads and joint
venture cash flow growth.  The Outlook also takes into account the
company's good access to capital on increasingly favorable terms,
and adequate liquidity position including a large unencumbered
pool.  Leverage remains consistent with a 'BB+' rating, although
Fitch anticipates that DDR's management team will continue to
utilize equity issuance and retained cash flow from organic growth
and redevelopment to reduce leverage to a level consistent with a
'BBB-' IDR.

The prime portfolio, which consists of assets in higher barrier to
entry markets with strong household income profiles, represented
89.3% of total net operating income in third quarter 2012 (3Q'12),
up from 81.6% at the beginning of 2010 and 70.0% at the beginning
of 2009.  DDR continues to acquire prime assets on balance sheet
and in joint ventures while selling non-prime assets, and Fitch
expects this strategy of portfolio recycling to continue going
forward.

A strong tenant roster further evidences high-quality cash flow.
As of Sept. 30, 2012, top tenants by base rental revenue were Wal-
Mart Stores, Inc. (3.1% of rental revenues, Fitch IDR of 'AA' with
a Stable Outlook), TJX Companies (2.5%), PetSmart (2.2%), Bed Bath
& Beyond (2.2%), and Kohl's Corporation (2.1%, Fitch IDR of 'BBB+'
with a Stable Outlook).  For 2012 year-to-date, weighted average
lease terms were 8.3 years on new leases and 5.3 years on
renewals, signaling cash flow stability absent tenant
bankruptcies.  Fitch's most recent U.S. Retail Stats Quarterly
report noted generally steady operating and credit trends across
the U.S. retail sector.

Fixed-charge coverage continues to improve and was 2.0x in 3Q'12,
up from 1.9x in 2Q'12, 1.8x in 1Q'12 and 1.7x in 2011.  Fitch
defines fixed-charge coverage as recurring operating EBITDA
including Fitch's estimate of recurring cash distributions from
unconsolidated entities less recurring capital expenditures and
straight-line rent adjustments divided by total interest incurred
and preferred stock dividends.

New supply is limited, resulting in improved property-level
fundamentals. Same-store net operating income (NO)I grew by 3.7%
in 3Q'12, 3.1% in 2Q'12 and 2.3% in 1Q'12 due to continued
positive leasing spreads of 7.0% in 3Q'12, 6.8% in 2Q'12 and 6.4%
in 1Q'12, coupled with occupancy gains.  Recent same-store NOI
results exceeded the 10-year average of 1.5% from 2002-2011 and
contributed towards the improvement in coverage.

Additionally, DDR's 2012 joint venture with Blackstone Real Estate
Partners VII and growth in Sonae Sierra Brasil BV Sarl
distributions resulted in recurring unconsolidated entity cash
flow to DDR of $37.3 million annually, more than 2x levels
achieved in 2011 and bolstering corporate earnings power going
forward.

Fitch anticipates that low same-store NOI growth as well as
incremental earnings from re-development will result in fixed-
charge coverage sustaining in the low 2x range, which is
appropriate for a 'BBB-' rating.  In a stress case not anticipated
by Fitch in which DDR's results revert to 2009 levels, coverage
would fall below 2x, which would be more consistent with a 'BB+'
rating.

DDR's funding profile is strong.  As of Sept. 30, 2012, the
company had no unsecured debt maturities through May 2015.  The
debt maturity schedule as of Sept. 30, 2012 had 0.4% of pro rata
debt maturing in 4Q'12, 8.1% maturing in 2013, and 7.1% maturing
in 2014.  Notably, the weighted average debt duration is
approximately 5 years as of Sept. 30, 2012, indicating appropriate
long-term asset and liability matching.

Capital access remains solid as demonstrated by the June 2012
issuance of $300 million 4.625% senior unsecured notes due 2022
priced to yield 4.865% to maturity, or 325 basis points over the
benchmark treasury rate, and the July 2012 issuance of $200
million 6.5% class J preferred stock.

DDR has an adequate liquidity position with liquidity coverage,
defined as liquidity sources divided by liquidity uses, of 1.4x
for the period from Oct. 1, 2012 to Dec. 31, 2014.  Liquidity
sources include unrestricted cash, availability under the
company's unsecured revolving credit facilities, and projected
retained cash flows from operating activities after dividends and
distributions.  Liquidity uses include pro rata debt maturities
pro forma for expected refinancings prior to year-end and
projected recurring capital expenditures and redevelopment
expenditures.  Assuming a 75% refinance rate on upcoming secured
debt maturities, liquidity coverage would be strong at 3.6x.

DDR also has contingent liquidity from a large unencumbered
property pool that is consistent with a 'BB+' rating.
Unencumbered properties valued at an 8% capitalization rate and a
50% haircut on unencumbered land covered unsecured debt by 1.7x as
of Sept. 30, 2012 pro forma for expected refinancings prior to
year-end.  A haircut on land is conservative given impairments
incurred on DDR's land during previous years.  The covenants in
the company's debt agreements do not restrict financial
flexibility.

Current leverage is consistent with a 'BB+' rating, with net debt
to recurring operating EBITDA of 7.5x as of Sept. 30, 2012
compared with 8.2x as of Dec 31, 2011 and 8.6x as of Dec. 31,
2010. Organic EBITDA growth and equity-funded acquisitions have
resulted in declines in leverage.  However, Fitch anticipates that
favorable fundamentals and continued ATM utilization will push
leverage below 7x over the next 12-to-24 months, which is
appropriate for a 'BBB-' rating.  In a stress case not anticipated
by Fitch in which DDR's results revert to 2009 levels, leverage
would sustain above 7x, which would be more consistent with a
'BB+' rating.

The two-notch differential between DDR's IDR and preferred stock
rating is consistent with Fitch's criteria for corporate entities
with an IDR of 'BB+'.  Based on Fitch research on 'Treatment and
Notching of Hybrids in Nonfinancial Corporates and REIT Credit
Analysis' dated Dec. 15, 2011, these securities are deeply
subordinated and have loss absorption elements that would likely
result in poor recoveries in a corporate default.

The Positive Outlook reflects Fitch's expectation that the
portfolio will remain almost entirely prime, coverage will sustain
above 2.0x, leverage will sustain below 7.0x, and unencumbered
asset coverage will sustain above 2.0x.

The following factors may result in an IDR upgrade to 'BBB-':

  -- Fitch's expectation of fixed-charge coverage sustaining above
     2.0x (coverage was 2.0x in 3Q'12);
  -- Fitch's expectation of leverage sustaining below 7.0x
     (leverage was 7.5x as of Sept. 30, 2012);
  -- Fitch's expectation of unencumbered asset coverage of
     unsecured debt sustaining above 2.0x (unencumbered assets -
     valued as unencumbered NOI for the trailing 12 months ended
     Sept. 30, 2012 divided by a stressed capitalization rate of
     8% plus a 50% haircut to land - to unsecured debt was 1.7x).

The following factors may have a negative impact on DDR's ratings
and/or Outlook:

  -- Fitch's expectation of fixed-charge coverage sustaining below
     1.8x;
  -- Fitch's expectation of leverage sustaining above 8.5x;
  -- Base case liquidity coverage sustaining below 1.0x.


DELTA PETROLEUM: Trustee Objects to Akin Gump's $1MM Fee Request
----------------------------------------------------------------
Brian Mahoney at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the recovery
trustee of Delta Petroleum Corp. on Tuesday asked a Delaware
bankruptcy judge to reduce the compensation for the official
committee of unsecured creditors' co-counsel Akin Gump Strauss
Hauer & Feld LLP, saying the firm's $1 million fees request was
excessive and unreasonable.

Bankruptcy Law360 relates that John T. Young Jr., trustee for the
Delta Petroleum General Recovery Trust, said that the official
creditors committee was appointed relatively late in Delta's
bankruptcy, meaning that the firm didn't perform the "watchdog"
role typical of Chapter 11 committee firms.

ELPIDA MEMORY: ITC Judge Allows Nanya to End DRAM IP Case
---------------------------------------------------------
Eric Hornbeck at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a U.S.
International Trade Commission judge said that Nanya Technology
Corp. could terminate its investigation into insolvent Elpida
Memory Inc. over four dynamic random access memory patents, citing
Micron Technology Inc.'s proposed acquisition of Elpida.

                        About Elpida Memory

Elpida Memory Inc. (TYO:6665) -- http://www.elpida.com/ja/-- is
a Japan-based company principally engaged in the development,
design, manufacture and sale of semiconductor products, with a
focus on dynamic random access memory (DRAM) silicon chips.  The
main products are DDR3 SDRAM, DDR2 SDRAM, DDR SDRAM, SDRAM,
Mobile RAM and XDR DRAM, among others.  The Company distributes
its products to both domestic and overseas markets, including the
United States, Europe, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and others.
The company has eight subsidiaries and two associated companies.

After semiconductor prices plunged, Japan's largest maker of DRAM
chips filed for bankruptcy in February with liabilities of 448
billion yen ($5.6 billion) after losing money for five quarters.
Elpida Memory and its subsidiary, Akita Elpida Memory, Inc.,
filed for corporate reorganization proceedings in Tokyo District
Court on Feb. 27, 2012.  The Tokyo District Court immediately
rendered a temporary restraining order to restrain creditors from
demanding repayment of debt or exercising their rights with
respect to the company's assets absent prior court order.
Atsushi Toki, Attorney-at-Law, has been appointed by the Tokyo
Court as Supervisor and Examiner in the case.

Elpida Memory Inc. sought the U.S. bankruptcy court's recognition
of its reorganization proceedings currently pending in Tokyo
District Court, Eight Civil Division.  Yuko Sakamoto, as foreign
representative, filed a Chapter 15 petition (Bankr. D. Del. Case
No. 12-10947) for Elpida on March 19, 2012.


ELPIDA MEMORY: U.S. Judge to Review Rambus Patent Deals
-------------------------------------------------------
Peg Brickley, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reports Judge
Christopher Sontchi on Friday ruled he will take a second look at
patent deals that Elpida Memory Inc., based in Japan, cut with
Rambus Inc. of the U.S.  The patent arrangements were earlier
approved by the Japanese court that is supervising Elpida's
restructuring.

The report recounts Elpida had argued that Judge Sontchi was bound
to go along with what the Tokyo court had to say on the patent
arrangement.  Lawyers for Elpida cited the principle of comity, or
courtesy between the courts of different countries.

According to the report, Judge Sontchi said the U.S. bankruptcy
law that is safeguarding Elpida's U.S. assets while it works out
its financial troubles in Japan doesn't bind him to automatically
go along with the Japanese courts on matters involving assets
within U.S. borders.  The judge said he is bound to evaluate the
patent sale by applying U.S. law instead of just endorsing the
Rambus arrangement because the Japanese court had approved it.

Elpida is seeking to sell itself to Micron Technology Inc. for
$2.5 billion.  Disgruntled bondholders have been trying to block
the deal.

According to the report, Elpida didn't respond Monday to an
inquiry about whether it intended to appeal the decision.  U.S.-
based Micron also didn't respond to a request for comment.

Ms. Brickley also reports that the Tokyo court in October cleared
the way for creditors to vote on Elpida's restructuring plan,
which depends on the sale to Micron.  A rival bondholder proposal
that would have offered voting creditors a second option failed to
clear the Tokyo court.  Voting will continue until Feb. 26.  If
Elpida gets enough support for its plan, it will then ask the
Tokyo court for final approval.

The report notes bondholder attorney Christopher Shore of White &
Case LLP said at a court hearing that review of the sale documents
indicates there will be no deal with Micron if the U.S. assets are
tied up in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

ETOWAH VALLEY: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
---------------------------------------------------------
Reach Weaver at blueridgenow.com reports that Etowah Valley
Country Club and Golf Lodge, family owned since 1967, was forced
to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a fight to save the business from
the blows of the recession and lackluster economic recovery.

According to the report, the club was up for sale last year, but
there weren't a lot of people buying golf courses, said Frank Todd
Jr., who co-owns the club with his siblings.  Not many people are
buying golf memberships either -- a lack of revenue that has
crippled the business.  In the light of soaring food and gas
prices, club members, like developers, have had to cut back on
luxury expenses, the report says.

The report relates Mr. Todd still hopes they will come out of it
stronger.  Etowah Valley Country Club is still open.  The 240-acre
property hosts a 27-hole championship golf course, which gives
golfers a choice of nine-hole courses to play.  The club offers a
75-unit lodge for travelers, dining room, clubhouse, croquet field
and state-of-the-art tennis courts.

The report notes Mr. Todd said income at the club has been cut in
half since the recession began.  "We've cut a lot of expenses, but
we have not been able to overcome the lack of revenue," he added.

The report says the lack of revenue has forced the company to
temporarily lay off some of its 75 employees.


EXTENDED STAY: Buyout Group to Sell $3.5 Billion in Debt
--------------------------------------------------------
Al Yoon and Kris Hudson, writing for The Wall Street Journal,
report that Centerbridge Partners, Paulson & Co. and Blackstone
Group BX, the investment group that acquired the Extended Stay
America hotel chain out of bankruptcy, are preparing to sell $3.5
billion in total debt to refinance the 663-hotel chain that they
bought in 2010.  The group plans to put about $700 million of the
proceeds in their pockets and use most of the rest to replace
existing debt.

According to the report, the Extended Stay buyout group is
planning to raise $2.5 billion through the commercial mortgage-
backed securities market.  The group also is hoping to capitalize
on the growing demand for high-yield debt by raising $1 billion in
so-called mezzanine debt, which is a riskier investment because
it's backed by the owners' equity rather than the properties
themselves.  Deutsche Bank, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Goldman Sachs
Group Inc., Citigroup, and Bank of America Merrill Lynch have been
approached about buying junior pieces of this mezzanine debt,
according to three people briefed on the deal, WSJ says.

Sources also told WSJ that Extended Stay's owners may take the
unusual step of trying to securitize the most senior portion of
the mezzanine debt.

The report recounts the trio purchased Extended Stay for roughly
$4.2 billion after prevailing at a May 2010 bankruptcy auction
over a group led by Starwood Capital.  The buyers then financed
their purchase partly with $2.7 billion of debt and put in about
$1.5 billion in equity.

                       About Extended Stay

Extended Stay is the largest owner and operator of mid-price
extended stay hotels in the United States, holding one of the most
geographically diverse portfolios in the lodging sector with
properties located across 44 states (including 11 hotels located
in New York) and two provinces in Canada.  As a result of
acquisitions and mergers, Extended Stay's portfolio has expanded
to encompass over 680 properties, consisting of hotels directly
owned or leased by Extended Stay or one of its affiliates.
Extended Stay currently operates five hotel brands: (i) Crossland
Economy Studios, (ii) Extended Stay America, (iii) Extended Stay
Deluxe, (iv) Homestead Studio Suites, and (v) StudioPLUS Deluxe
Studios.

Extended Stay Inc. and its affiliates filed for Chapter 11 on
June 15, 2009 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 09-13764).  Judge James M.
Peck handles the case.  Marcia L. Goldstein, Esq., at Weil Gotshal
& Manges LLP, in New York, represents the Debtors.  Lazard Freres
& Co. LLC is the Debtors' financial advisors.  Kurtzman Carson
Consultants LLC is the claims agent.  The Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors tapped Gilbert Backenroth, Esq., Mark T.
Power, Esq., and Mark S. Indelicato, Esq., at Hahn & Hessen LLP,
in New York, as counsel.  Extended Stay had assets of
$7.1 billion and debts of $7.6 billion as of the end of 2008.

Extended Stay Inc. in October successfully emerged from Chapter 11
protection.  An investment group including Centerbridge Partners,
L.P., Paulson & Co. Inc. and Blackstone Real Estate Partners VI,
L.P.  has purchased 100% of the Company for $3.925 billion in
connection with the Plan of Reorganization confirmed by the
Bankruptcy Court in July 2010.


FILENE'S BASEMENT: Say Cushman's Termination Fee Request Too Early
------------------------------------------------------------------
Kelly Rizzetta at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Syms Corp.
blasted its former real estate broker Cushman & Wakefield Inc. on
Thursday for requesting its $1.25 million termination fee five
months too early, saying deals executed in the interim could incur
fees that would reduce the amount Cushman is owed.

Bankruptcy Law360 relates that Syms and subsidiaries including
Filene's Basement LLC don't deny that they are obligated to pay
Cushman a termination fee after firing the New York-based
commercial real estate broker last month.

                      About Filene's Basement

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

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

Filene's Basement, Inc. and its affiliates filed for Chapter 22
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 09-11525) on May 4, 2009, represented by
lawyers at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP.  Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions serves as claims and notice agent.  The Debtors
disclosed assets of $236 million, including real estate of $97.7
million, and liabilities of $94 million, including $31.1 million
owing on a revolving credit with Bank of America NA as agent. In
addition, there were $11.1 million in letters of credit
outstanding on the revolver.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

HARRISBURG, PA: Advisers Defend Work on Incinerator
---------------------------------------------------
Matt Fair at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that attorneys and
financial advisers connected to a bungled incinerator project that
saddled Harrisburg with more than $300 million in debt and pushed
the city into state receivership defended their work on the
project during a hearing before a committee of Pennsylvania state
lawmakers Tuesday.

                   About Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

The city of Harrisburg, in Pennsylvania, is coping with debt
related to a failed revamp of an incinerator.  The city is
$65 million in default on $242 million owing on bonds sold to
finance an incinerator that converts trash to energy.

The Harrisburg city council voted 4-3 on Oct. 11, 2011, to
authorize the filing of a Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy (Bankr.
M.D. Pa. Case No. 11-06938).  The city claims to be insolvent,
unable to pay its debt and in imminent danger of having
tax revenue seized by holders of defaulted bonds.

Judge Mary D. France presided over the Chapter 9 case.  Mark D.
Schwartz, Esq. and David A. Gradwohl, Esq., served as Harrisburg's
counsel.  The petition estimated $100 million to $500 million in
assets and debts.  Susan Wilson, the city's chairperson on Budget
and Finance, signed the petition.

Harrisburg said in court papers it is in imminent jeopardy through
six pending legal actions by creditors with respect to a number of
outstanding bond issues relating to the Harrisburg Materials,
Energy, Recycling and Recovery Facilities, which processes waste
into steam and electrical energy.  The owner and operator of the
incinerator is The Harrisburg Authority, which is unable to pay
the bond issues.  The city is the primary guarantor under each
bond issue.  The lawsuits were filed by Dauphin County, where
Harrisburg is located, Joseph and Jacalyn Lahr, TD Bank N.A., and
Covanta Harrisburg Inc.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the County of Dauphin, and
Harrisburg city mayor Linda D. Thompson and other creditors and
interested parties objected to the Chapter 9 petition.  The state
later adopted a new law allowing the governor to appoint a
receiver.

Kenneth W. Lee, Esq., Christopher E. Fisher, Esq., Beverly Weiss
Manne, Esq., and Michael A. Shiner, Esq., at Tucker Arensberg,
P.C., represented Mayor Thompson in the Chapter 9 case. Counsel to
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was Neal D. Colton, Esq., Jeffrey
G. Weil, Esq., Eric L. Scherling, Esq., at Cozen O'Connor.

In November 2011, the Bankruptcy Judge dismissed the Chapter 9
case because (1) the City Council did not have the authority under
the Optional Third Class City Charter Law and the Third Class City
Code to commence a bankruptcy case on behalf of Harrisburg and (2)
the City was not specifically authorized under state law to be a
debtor under Chapter 9 as required by 11 U.S.C. Sec. 109(c)(2).

Dismissal of the Chapter 9 petition was upheld in a U.S. District
Court.

That same month, the state governor appointed David Unkovic as
receiver for Harrisburg.  Mr. Unkovic is represented by the
Municipal Recovery & Restructuring group of McKenna Long &
Aldridge LLP, led by Keith Mason, Esq., co-chair of the group.

Mr. Unkovic resigned as receiver March 30, 2012.


HERTZ CORP: S&P Removes 'B+' CCR From Watch on DTAG Acquisition
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its ratings on Park
Ridge, N.J.-based car and equipment renter and lessor Hertz Global
Holdings Inc. and its major operating subsidiary Hertz Corp.,
including the 'B+' corporate credit rating on both entities. "We
removed the ratings from CreditWatch, where we placed them with
negative implications on Aug. 27, 2012, when Hertz announced it
had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire competitor
Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc. (DTAG). Hertz received
regulatory approval to acquire DTAG on Nov. 15, 2012, for $2.6
billion of cash and the assumption of $1.6 billion of DTAG's fleet
debt, and we expect the acquisition to close shortly. The outlook
is stable," S&P said.

"The affirmation reflects Hertz's relatively stable financial
profile, pro forma for the pending acquisition," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Betsy Snyder. "This is Hertz's third attempt
to acquire DTAG since April 2010, and each bid has become
increasingly more costly. The company will fund the acquisition
through a combination of Hertz's cash, DTAG's cash, and debt,
which Hertz has already raised.  Hertz will also assume $1.6
billion of DTAG's fleet debt.  Hertz has indicated it expects at
least $160 million of annual cost synergies, in addition to
revenue opportunities from combining the two companies. The
Federal Trade Commission approved the acquisition on Nov. 15,
2012, and Hertz agreed to divest its relatively small value brand
Advantage and certain DTAG rental locations to gain approval. We
believe the acquisition will aid Hertz's competitive position,
expanding its reach in the value/leisure car rental segment."

"Hertz's margins have improved over the past two years. Its
operating margin (after depreciation) was 15% for the 12 months
ended Sept. 30, 2012, compared with 10% two years earlier, because
of higher revenues, cost reduction programs, and a strong used-car
market that has resulted in lower vehicle expense. This has
resulted in stronger credit metrics. For the 12 months ended Sept.
30, 2012, EBITDA interest coverage was 4.8x, compared with 3.3x
two years earlier; funds from operations (FFO) to debt was 22%,
compared with 19%; debt to EBITDA was 4.3x, compared with 5.2x;
and debt to capital was 85%, compared with 88%. We expect
incremental earnings and cash flow to result in stable to modestly
improving credit metrics, despite the additional debt, for
the combined entity.  Under our criteria, we characterize Hertz's
business risk profile as 'fair,' its financial risk profile as
'aggressive,' and its liquidity as 'adequate,'" S&P said.

"Hertz's acquisition of DTAG will result in an increase in its
market share in the U.S. There currently are three major on-
airport car rental companies: Hertz, Avis Budget Group Inc.
(B+/Stable/--; parent of the Avis and Budget brands), and
Enterprise Rent-A-Car Co. (BBB+/Stable/A-2; parent of the
Enterprise, Alamo, and National brands), and each have
approximately a 30% market share. DTAG accounts for most of the
balance. DTAG focuses on the leisure segment, which has been
faster growing and has been more profitable than business rentals
over the past few years, while Hertz serves a mixture of business
and leisure travelers. The acquisition will result in increased
penetration for Hertz in the leisure segment, giving it a brand
that can compete aggressively without undermining Hertz's pricing
structure," S&P said.

"Our ratings on Hertz reflect an aggressive financial profile and
the price-competitive, cyclical nature of on-airport car rentals
and equipment rentals. The ratings also incorporate the company's
position as the largest global car rental company and the strong
cash flow its businesses generate," S&P said.

"The outlook is stable. Pro forma for the proposed acquisition, we
anticipate Hertz's credit metrics will remain stable or improve
modestly through 2013, with higher earnings and cash flow
offsetting the incremental debt from the acquisition. We expect
FFO to debt of about 20% and EBITDA to interest coverage in the
low-4x area. We could raise the ratings if better-than-expected
earnings or significant debt reduction resulted in FFO to
debt increasing to the mid-20% level on a sustained basis.
Although less likely, we could lower the ratings if demand
declined significantly or used-car prices declined substantially,
resulting in a loss upon the sale of vehicles causing FFO to debt
to decline to the mid-teens percent level on a sustained basis,"
S&P said.

                     S&P Removes DTAG's 'B+' CCR
                      Pending Hertz Acquisition

Standard and Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B+' corporate
credit rating on Tulsa, Okla.-based car renter Dollar Thrifty
Automotive Group Inc. (DTAG), based on its expectation that
competitor Hertz Global Holdings Inc. will complete an acquisition
of DTAG now that it has received regulatory approval to complete
the acquisition. DTAG has no rated debt. "We also removed the
rating from CreditWatch, where we placed it with negative
implications on August 27, 2012, when Hertz announced it had
entered into a definitive agreement to acquire DTAG. When the
acquisition is completed, we expect to withdraw our rating on
DTAG, with the combined entity's corporate credit rating at 'B+'.
The outlook on the combined entity is stable," S&P said.

"The affirmation of our rating reflects our view of the combined
entity's relatively stable financial profile, pro forma for the
completed acquisition," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Betsy Snyder. "Hertz will fund the acquisition with a combination
of its cash, DTAG's cash, and debt, which Hertz has already
raised."

"Hertz will also assume $1.6 billion of DTAG's fleet debt. Hertz
has indicated it expects at least $160 million of annual cost
synergies, in addition to revenue opportunities from combining the
two companies. The Federal Trade Commission approved the
transaction on Nov. 15, 2012, with Hertz agreeing to divest its
relatively small value brand Advantage and certain DTAG rental
locations to gain approval," S&P said.

"The outlook is stable. Pro forma for the proposed acquisition, we
anticipate the combined entity's credit metrics will weaken from
DTAG's previously strong levels, because of expected weaker
consolidated margins and the incremental acquisition debt. We
anticipate FFO to debt of around 20% and EBITDA to interest
coverage in the low-4x area for the combined entity. However, we
believe the combined entity's market position will improve and
credit measures will rise over time. We could raise the ratings on
the combined entity if better-than-expected earnings or
significant debt reduction resulted in FFO to debt increasing to
the mid-20% level on a sustained basis. Although we consider it
less likely, we could lower the ratings on the combined entity if
demand declined significantly or used car prices fell
substantially, resulting in a loss upon the sale of vehicles,
causing FFO to debt to drop to the mid-teens percent level on a
sustained basis," S&P said.


HMX ACQUISITION: Dec. 10 Auction of Coppley Brand, Other Assets
---------------------------------------------------------------
Matthew Daneman at Democrat and Chronicle reports that HMX
Acquisition Corp. said it plans to sell its Coppley clothing brand
and operations, and auction off the rest of the company --
including Hickey Freeman -- on Dec. 10, 2012.

According to the report, HMX received U.S. Bankruptcy Court
approval to sell Coppley Corp., which is based in Canada, for
$3.5 million to Very Best Apparel Corp.  In court paperwork, HMX
said that if it hadn't found a party interested in buying, Coppley
likely would have been shut down and liquidated.

The report says the sale of the Coppley assets was one key
prerequisite to HMX receiving bankruptcy financing, consisting of
a $65 million line of credit including a $5 million term loan.

According to the report, the Coppley sale is only a prelude to
what will likely be the main event of the bankruptcy -- a
scheduled auction of the rest of its assets, including the Hickey
Freeman and Hart Schaffner Marx brands and the Hickey Freeman
plant on North Clinton Avenue, the report adds.

The report notes bids are due Dec. 6, with the auction to be held
four days later.

The report relates leading the pack of bidders is Authentic Brands
Group, a New York City firm that specializes in buying and
licensing brands of distressed companies.  Under the proposed sale
agreement to Authentic, it would then lease back those assets and
brands to a new company being formed by and partially financed by
HMX's chief executive, Douglas Williams.

The report adds, however, Authentic and Mr. Williams' plan may
have some competition.  Mr. Williams said there were "about 10
different groups that are interested in looking" and thus could
emerge as bidders.

According to the report, Mr. Williams has maintained that a key
aim of his plan is to keep Hickey Freeman and Hart Schaffner Marx
manufacturing in the United States, with the latter doing its
apparel making in Chicago.  He said that at least some of the
prospective bidders have similar aims in mind.

The report adds whoever buys HMX's remaining assets might not end
up with the leadership and design help of Joseph Abboud, the noted
menswear designer.  Mr. Williams said Mr. Abboud had stepped down
as HMX president and chief creative officer, though he remains an
adviser.  Mr. Abboud will not be replaced.


HOSTESS BRANDS: To Proceed With Wind-Down After Mediation Failed
----------------------------------------------------------------
Rachel Feintzeig, writing for Dow Jones Newswires, reports a
spokesman for Hostess Brands Inc. said Tuesday evening the company
will proceed with its wind-down plan after a last-ditch mediation
session with its striking bakers' union failed to save the
Company.

Dow Jones says Hostess Chief Executive Gregory Rayburn confirmed
the mediation hadn't resulted in a deal.  Hostess now plans to ask
Judge Robert Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in White Plains,
N.Y., for approval to proceed with a liquidation.

The report notes both the president and the lawyer for the bakers
union declined to comment.

The report notes that in a statement after the mediation failure,
Teamsters General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall said that Hostess's
motion to wind down the company "is a tragic outcome."

The Bankruptcy Court had pushed back for a couple of days the
hearing on Hostess' plan to wind down its business.  A hearing on
the Wind-down Plan was originally set for Nov. 19 in the
afternoon.  Judge Drain rescheduled the hearing for Nov. 21 at
11:00 a.m.

A summary of Hostess' request was reported in the Nov. 19 edition
of the Troubled Company Reporter.  Several creditors and other
parties-in-interest in the case have filed objections to the Wind-
Down Plan.

                             Mediation

Dow Jones Newswires' Jacqueline Palank and Rachel Feintzeig, and
The Wall Street Journal's Mike Spector reported that Judge Drain
surprised Hostess Brands and its warring union Monday by delaying
the Company's bid to close its 85-year-old bakery business and
sell off its factories, brands and other assets.  Instead, Judge
Drain asked both sides to join him Tuesday for a mediation session
where he will try to broker a new contract.  If Tuesday's long-
shot session fails, then the Company will be able to return to
court Wednesday to try to move ahead with its plans to close down.

"My desire to do this is prompted primarily by the potential loss
of over 18,000 jobs," the judge said during a hearing in federal
bankruptcy court on Monday, according to the report.  He also
cited his "belief that there is a possibility to resolve this
matter notwithstanding the losses that [Hostess has incurred] over
the last week or so and the difficulty of reorganizing this
company."

Hostess and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain
Millers International Union agreed to the confidential mediation
proceedings.

According to the report, Hostess Chief Executive Gregory Rayburn
said the judge's call for mediation is a "forceful" message to the
company and the union to try to work out their issues. "We'll take
all the help we can get," he said.

The report also relates Bakers union attorney Jeffrey R. Freund of
Bredhoff & Kaiser said after the hearing that the union was
"respectful" of the court's request for mediation.

The report noted that Judge Drain, who was a partner at Paul,
Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP before his 2002 appointment
to the bench, said in court Monday he didn't understand why the
union didn't fight the labor concessions in court.  "The bakers
union did not object to the relief that was sought. I want to
repeat that," he said, calling its decision to remain silent when
Hostess was on the verge of imposing labor cost cuts "somewhat
unusual, to say the least, and perhaps illogical."

According to the report, Mr. Freund said the union has been
"crystal clear" about what it believes needs to be done to make
Hostess viable. "We laid that out," he said, "again and again and
again and again."

The report also said Heather Lennox, Esq., a Jones Day lawyer
representing Hostess, told Judge Drain Monday that the strike hurt
the company's finances beyond repair.  "At this point, your honor,
our customers know we're going out of business. It would be very
hard for us to recover from this damage, your honor, even if there
were to be an agreement in the near term," she said.

                         Potential Bidders

Dow Jones Newswires' Msses. Palank and Feintzeig, and The Wall
Street Journal's Mr. Spector also reported that potential bidders
are circling Hostess, hoping to get iconic brands or other assets
on the cheap.  Flowers Foods Inc. of Thomasville, Ga., whose own
brands include Nature's Own bread, ButterKrust bread and Tastykake
snack cakes, said Monday it has renegotiated lending terms to
allow it to tap additional cash.  Analysts see that as a clear
sign it is gearing up to buy Hostess assets.

Private-equity firm Sun Capital, meanwhile, is interested in
bidding on Hostess's entire business, said a person close to the
firm, according to the report.  The Boca Raton, Fla., buyout shop,
which owns the Friendly's restaurant chain and specializes in
company turnarounds, would like to try to negotiate a deal with
Hostess's unions, the person said.

Sun's interest was earlier reported by Fortune.  According to
Fortune's Dan Primack, Sun co-CEO Marc Leder, said in an
interview, "I think that we could offer a slightly better, more
labor-friendly deal than what was on the table last week. . . .
We also think that one point the unions have made is that there
hasn't been a great amount of reinvestment in the business.  We've
found that investing new capital into companies like this can be
very positive for brand, people and profitability. . . .  We would
look to invest in newer, more modern, manufacturing assets that
would enable the company to become more productive and to
innovate."

Hostess' CEO Gregory F. Rayburn, in an interview with the WSJ,
however, said "Nobody wants to have anything to do with these old
plants or these unions or these contracts."

                           Nov. 21 Hearing

The Bankruptcy Court pushed back for a couple of days the hearing
on Hostess Brands Inc.'s plan to wind down its business.  A
hearing on the Wind-down Plan was originally set for Nov. 19 in
the afternoon.  Judge Robert D. Drain rescheduled the hearing for
Nov. 21 at 11:00 a.m.

A summary of Hostess' request was reported in the Nov. 19 edition
of the Troubled Company Reporter.

                             Mediation

Dow Jones Newswires' Jacqueline Palank and Rachel Feintzeig, and
The Wall Street Journal's Mike Spector report that Judge Drain
surprised Hostess Brands and its warring union Monday by delaying
the company's bid to close its 85-year-old bakery business and
sell off its factories, brands and other assets.  Instead, Judge
Drain asked both sides to join him Tuesday for a mediation session
where he will try to broker a new contract.  If Tuesday's long-
shot session fails, then the company will be able to return to
court Wednesday to try to move ahead with its plans to close down.

"My desire to do this is prompted primarily by the potential loss
of over 18,000 jobs," the judge said during a hearing in federal
bankruptcy court in White Plains, N.Y., according to the report.
He also cited his "belief that there is a possibility to resolve
this matter notwithstanding the losses that [Hostess has incurred]
over the last week or so and the difficulty of reorganizing this
company."

Hostess and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain
Millers International Union agreed to the confidential mediation
proceedings.  If they don't make progress, a hearing on Hostess's
liquidation request will resume Wednesday.  Meanwhile, the
company's plants remain closed and potential suitors are circling.

According to the report, Hostess Chief Executive Gregory Rayburn
said the judge's call for mediation is a "forceful" message to the
company and the union to try to work out their issues. "We'll take
all the help we can get," he said.

The report also relates Bakers union attorney Jeffrey R. Freund of
Bredhoff & Kaiser said after the hearing that the union was
"respectful" of the court's request for mediation.

                       About Hostess Brands

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

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

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

In 2011, Hostess retained Houlihan Lokey to explore sales of its
smaller assets and individual brands.  Houlihan Lokey oversaw the
sale of Mrs. Cubbison's to Sugar Foods Corporation for
$12 million, but was unable to sell any of Hostess' core assets.
Judge Robert D. Drain oversees the case.  Hostess has hired Jones
Day as bankruptcy counsel; Stinson Morrison Hecker LLP as general
corporate counsel and conflicts counsel; Perella Weinberg Partners
LP as investment bankers, FTI Consulting, Inc. to provide an
interim treasurer and additional personnel for the Debtors, and
Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as administrative agent.

the case.  The committee selected New York law firm Kramer Levin
Naftalis & Frankel LLP as its counsel. Tom Mayer and Ken Eckstein
head the legal team for the committee.


HOWREY LLP: Trustee Objects to Class Action Against Ex-Partners
---------------------------------------------------------------
Stewart Bishop at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the Chapter 11
trustee in the Howrey LLP bankruptcy case on Thursday pressed a
California judge to stop a proposed class action targeting
hundreds of equity security holders of the defunct firm, saying
the suit interferes with the estate's own recoveries and violates
the automatic stay.

                         About Howrey LLP

Three creditors filed an involuntary Chapter 7 petition (Bankr.
N.D. Calif. Case No. 11-31376) on April 11, 2011, against the
remnants of the Washington-based law firm Howrey LLP.  The filing
was in San Francisco, where the firm had an office.  The firm
previously was known as Howrey & Simon and Howrey Simon Arnold &
White LLP.  The firm at one time had more than 700 lawyers in 17
offices.  The partners voted to dissolve in March 2011.

The firm specialized in antitrust and intellectual-property
matters.  The three creditors filing the involuntary petition
together have $36,600 in claims, according to their petition.

The involuntary chapter 7 petition was converted to a chapter 11
case in June 2011 at the request of the firm.  In its schedules
filed in July, the Debtor disclosed assets of $138.7 million and
liabilities of $107.0 million.

Representing Citibank, the firm's largest creditor, is Kelley
Cornish, Esq., a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton &
Garrison.  Representing Howrey is H. Jason Gold, Esq., a partner
at Wiley Rein.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors is represented in
the case by Bradford F. Englander, Esq., at Whiteford, Taylor And
Preston LLP.

In September 2011, Citibank sought conversion of the Debtor's case
to Chapter 7 or, in the alternative, appointment of a Chapter 11
Trustee.  The Court entered an order appointing a Chapter 11
Trustee. In October 2011, Allan B. Diamond was named as Trustee.


HRK HOLDINGS: May Pay Lawyers on Contingency Basis
--------------------------------------------------
HRK Holdings LLC sought and obtained an order modifying the terms
of employment of James W. Martin, P.A. and William D. Preston,
P.A., to compensate the firms for certain services after Aug. 31,
2012, on a contingency basis.

The Debtor previously obtained orders authorizing to employ James
W. Martin and William D. Preston as special counsel and to
compensate them on an hourly basis.

According to the new order, the two firms will be paid on a
contingency fee basis with respect to providing advice, consulting
services, and litigation services in connection with pursuing
damages resulting from the planning, design, construction,
maintenance, assembly, product defects, negligence, supervision,
and any direct or indirectly related matters arising out of the
closure of the stack systems and damages to the Gypstack Property
and the Remaining Property against any person, firm, corporation,
agency, government, or entity that might be liable for damages,
including, but not limited to the lawsuit that is currently
pending in the Circuit Court for Manatee County, Florida, as Case
No. 41-2012-CA-003631.

                        About HRK Holdings

Based in Palmetto, Florida, HRK Holdings LLC owns roughly 675
contiguous acres of real property in Manatee County, Florida.
Roughly 350 acres of the property accommodates a phosphogypsum
stack system, called Gypstaks, a portion of which was used as an
alternate disposal area for the management of dredge materials
pursuant to a contract with Port Manatee and as authorized under
an administrative agreement with the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.  The remaining acres of usable land are
either leased to various tenants or available for sale.  HRK
Industries holds various contracts and leases associated with the
Debtors' property.

HRK Holdings and HRK Industries LLC filed for Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. M.D. Fla. Case Nos. 12-09868 and 12-09869) on
June 27, 2012.  Judge K. Rodney May oversees the case.  Barbara A.
Hart, Esq., at Stichter, Riedel, Blain & Prosser, P.A., represents
the Debtors.

HRK Holdings disclosed $33,366,529 in assets and $26,092,559
in liabilities in its revised schedules.

According to the Debtors, the bankruptcy filing was necessitated
by the immediate need to sell a portion of the remaining property
to create liquidity for (a) funding the urgent management of the
site-related environmental concerns; the benefit of creditors;
funding a litigation filed by the Debtors; and funding of expenses
related to additional sales of the remaining property.

third quarter of fiscal 2013 to fund operations and continue the
development, commercialization and marketing of our products.  Our
failure to achieve our projections and/or obtain sufficient
additional capital on acceptable terms would have a material
adverse effect on our liquidity and operations and could require
us to file for protection under bankruptcy laws."

INDYMAC BANK: FDIC Liable for MBS Losses, MBIA's Tells DC Circ.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Erica Teichert at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that MBIA Insurance
Corp. told a D.C. Circuit panel on Wednesday that the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corp. should be held responsible for the
insurance company's losses stemming from mortgage-backed
securities contracts with collapsed IndyMac Bank FSB, since it
tacitly approved the agreements in its role as the bank's
receiver.

                          About IndyMac Bank

Based in Pasadena, California, IndyMac Bancorp Inc. (NYSE:IMB) --
http://www.indymacbank.com/-- is the holding company for IndyMac

INNOVATION VENTURES: S&P Revises Outlook on 'B-' CCR to Negative
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services affirmed its 'B-' corporate
credit rating and revised its outlook on Innovation Ventures LLC
to negative from stable.

"We also affirmed our 'B-' issue-level rating on the company's
$450 million senior secured notes maturing 2019. The '3' recovery
rating, indicating our expectation for meaningful (50% to 70%)
recovery for lenders in the event of payment default, remains
unchanged," S&P said.

"Recent unfavorable media attention has highlighted health
concerns attributed to the company's product, 5-hour ENERGY. In
recent weeks, similar health concerns have been raised with
respect to competing products in the niche energy subset of the
dietary supplement industry," S&P said.

"The company stands behind the safety of its product when used as
directed by adults as an energy shot--not as a beverage," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Nalini Saxena. "However, given
the possibility of protracted regulatory investigations and legal
wrangling, we believe the heightened media attention on the safety
of caffeinated energy shots may be sufficient to hurt sales."

"The affirmation of our 'B-' corporate credit rating on the
company predominantly reflects our view of the inherent risks
related to the nature of the company's governance. We continue to
view the company's financial profile as 'highly leveraged,'
particularly informed by what we view as a very aggressive
financial policy, and the business profile as 'vulnerable,' given
its narrow product and brand focus," S&P said.

"Standard & Poor's could consider a downgrade if negative
publicity continues, inducing retailers to materially curtail
purchases, and/or if regulatory actions are taken against the
company. Given the company's product concentration, negative
publicity -- perhaps coupled with a product recall -- and a
resulting compromise of operational performance (including an
EBITDA decline of more than 30%), could effect a downgrade," S&P
said.

"We could also consider a downgrade if the company were to engage
in an even more aggressive financial policy, specifically debt-
financed shareholder dividends to the detriment of reinvesting in
the longer term growth of the business," S&P said.

"We could revise the outlook to stable if the company's sales and
profits remain relatively stable despite the negative publicity
surrounding the niche energy subset of the dietary supplement
industry, and upon a favorable outcome of potential regulatory
investigation," S&P said.


INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL: Incurs $217,200 Net Loss in 3rd Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------------
International Commercial Television Inc. filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form
10-Q disclosing a net loss of $217,200 on $6.28 million of net

net loss of $126,334 on $12.78 million of net sales, compared with

period a year ago.

The Company's balance sheet at Sept. 30, 2012, showed
$2.77 million in total assets, $3.02 million in total liabilities
and a $246,914 total shareholders' deficit.

                         Bankruptcy Warning

"There is no guarantee that the Company will be successful in
launching new product lines.  If the Company is unsuccessful in
achieving this goal, the Company will be required to raise
additional capital to meet its working capital needs or be forced
to delay future product lines due to insufficient cash flows.  If
the Company is unsuccessful in completing additional financings,
it will not be able to meet its working capital needs or execute
its business plan.  In such case the Company will assess all
available alternatives including a sale of its assets or merger,
the suspension of operations and possibly liquidation, auction,
bankruptcy, or other measures.  These conditions raise substantial
doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern."

JOHN BECK: U.S. Trustee Wants Bankruptcy Converted to Ch. 7
-----------------------------------------------------------
Beth Winegarner at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that a U.S. trustee
urged a California bankruptcy court Wednesday to convert a get-
rich-quick real estate business owner's Chapter 11 case to a
Chapter 7 to prevent the man from using his bankruptcy status to
avoid paying $113 million in fines to the Federal Trade
Commission.

Bankruptcy Law360 relates that U.S. Trustee Barbara Matthews urged
the court to either dismiss John Beck's bankruptcy entirely or
convert it to Chapter 7, arguing that he was using Chapter 11
incorrectly as a shelter against his FTC debt.

John Beck filed Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D. Calif. Case No.
12-47882) on Sept. 24, 2012.

worrying about other constituencies floating their own, as a New
York bankruptcy judge on Friday granted its request for an
extension of the exclusivity period.

According to Bankruptcy Law360, overruling an objection by Hologic
Inc., which had argued that the debtor had made no meaningful
progress and was not financially viable, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge
Allan L. Gropper extended K-V's exclusivity period for filing a
plan by three months.

KINDER MORGAN: Moody's Corrects July 17 Rating Release
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service issued a correction to the July 17, 2012
rating release of Kinder Morgan, Inc.

Moody's downgraded the senior secured debt ratings for Kinder
Morgan, Inc. (KMI) to Ba2 from Ba1 with a negative outlook. This
action concludes the review that was initiated on October 18, 2011
after KMI agreed to purchase 100% of the stock of El Paso
Corporation (El Paso). Other actions taken by Moody's included
placing El Paso's ratings on review for upgrade, and the
affirmation of the senior unsecured ratings for Kinder Morgan
Energy Partners, L.P. (KMP) at Baa2 and El Paso Pipeline Partners
Operating Company (EPBO) at Ba1. The El Paso ratings are under
review to reflect the possibility that KMI will guarantee El
Paso's debt. If not for the guarantee, a downgrade of El Paso's
rating is likely.

A number of affiliated companies had their outlooks changed, the
most notable being the change to a positive outlook from a
negative outlook for Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company and El Paso
Natural Gas Company in line with KMI's announced intent to move
these pipelines from El Paso to KMP later this year. A complete

According to Stuart Miller, Moody's Vice President and Senior
Credit Officer, "The rating actions capture the breadth, scale,
and credit quality of Kinder Morgan's portfolio of assets. The
actions also reflect the aggressive financial policies employed by
the management of Kinder Morgan as evidenced by the high level of
distributions that are regularly paid out at multiple levels of
the organization to equity holders, as well as the financial
leverage employed. Moody's rating assessment is highly dependent
on Kinder Morgan delivering on its plan to reduce leverage at the
parent level over the next two to three years."

RATINGS RATIONALE

Kinder Morgan Inc. and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P.

KMP's portfolio of infrastructure assets generates a relatively
stable source of cash flow that is used to fund expansions along
with distributions to its unitholders. KMP's Baa2 rating reflects
its superior scale, but tempered by an aggressive financial policy
as evidenced by the high leverage on a combined basis with its
parent, KMI. KMP's rating also incorporates the higher earnings
volatility and capital intensity associated with its oil, gas, and
CO2 production business. By the end of the third quarter of 2012,
KMP is expected to have completed the purchase of most of TGP and
a portion of EPNG which will improve KMP's business profile by
adding high quality, regulated pipelines to its portfolio while
diluting the contribution of the CO2 business segment. However,
KMP's corporate structure as a MLP creates a heavy distribution
burden as most of the partnership's available cash flow must be
paid to its unitholders to maintain its status as a tax pass-
through entity. With the competing demand to grow the underlying
business to support distribution growth, KMP has a heavy reliance
on third party funding in the debt and equity capital markets.

KMP's rating incorporates the impact that KMI's and El Paso's debt
has on the combined family of companies despite the debt being
non-recourse. To varying degrees, KMP provides support for the
debt at all three entities. On a proportionately consolidated
basis and including Moody's standard adjustments, at the closing
of the El Paso acquisition in May 2012, leverage at KMI was 7.1x,
at El Paso it was 6.9x, and at KMP it was 4.3x. Over the next
three years, the assets of El Paso are expected to be sold to KMP
and EPBO. As assets are "dropped down", KMI has the option to use
the proceeds of the sales to reduce debt at the KMI or El Paso
level. This could reduce the leverage at KMI, but the sale of
assets out of El Paso will likely cause El Paso's leverage to rise
from its already elevated level and could approach 10.0x debt to
EBITDA if priority is given to debt reduction at the KMI level.
The possibility for this extraordinarily high level of leverage
would influence the ratings throughout the KMI family of
companies, including KMP. KMI's rating is three notches below
KMP's rating to reflect its structural subordination to the
significant amount of debt at KMP.

KMP generates significant cash flow from operations. However,
little is used for debt reduction; it is either re-invested or
distributed to equity holders. KMI almost exclusively relies on
distributions from KMP which KMI uses to pay dividends to its
shareholders. For day to day liquidity, the companies' primary
sources of liquidity are their bank credit facilities and KMP's CP
program. In both cases, maintenance financial covenants do not
appear to limit either company's ability to access its credit
facility in the next twelve months. Moody's considers KMP's
liquidity to be good and KMI's liquidity to be adequate
(speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-3) as KMI's credit
facility is currently scheduled to expire within the next twelve
months - in May 2013. KMP has a $2.2 billion credit facility that
matures in July 2016. The credit facility backs up a similarly-
sized commercial paper program. At March 31, 2012, there was $584
million of usage under the credit facility and CP program leaving
about $1.6 billion of additional borrowing capacity. The credit
facility is unsecured, therefore secondary liquidity options are
available, if necessary. KMI has a $1.75 billion credit facility.
Usage at March 31, 2012, pro forma for the borrowings made at the
time of the El Paso acquisition, was approximately $560 million
leaving over $1.1 billion of availability. Because this facility
is secured by essentially all of KMI's assets, secondary liquidity
is more limited.

The stable outlook for KMP reflects Moody's expectation that
leverage will remain in the 4.0 to 4.5x range and leverage will
decline at KMI and El Paso combined to approximately 5.0x by the
end of 2014. The negative outlook for KMI reflects its initially
high leverage along with the possibility that KMI will guarantee
the debt of El Paso. A rating upgrade for KMP is unlikely until
the combined leverage at KMI and El Paso is below 5.0x and KMP's
leverage is below 4.0x. Similarly, an upgrade of KMI is unlikely
until the combined leverage of KMI and El Paso is less than 5.0x,
assuming KMP's leverage is no greater than 4.5x. KMP's rating
could be downgraded if leverage increases and approaches 5.0x on a
stand-alone basis or leverage at KMI and El Paso remains over
6.0x. Similar ratios would apply as potential triggers for a
downgrade of KMI's rating.

El Paso Corporation:

El Paso's rating reflects its large and diversified network of
natural gas pipelines along with its highly leveraged balance
sheet. Most of El Paso's pipelines maintain an investment grade
profile and generate significant levels of distributable cash.
However, as a result of the company's failed attempt to become a
major player in the energy marketing business in the early 2000s,
El Paso incurred significant levels of debt as it wound down and
exited the business. Putting additional stress on the company's
financial position, in 2008 El Paso launched an $8 billion
pipeline expansion and building program which was completed in
2011. More recently, as part of its acquisition by KMI in May
2012, El Paso sold its exploration and production (E&P) operations
for $7.15 billion. The sales proceeds were up-streamed to KMI to
reduce debt at the KMI level. As a result of this series of
events, El Paso's leverage, as measured by debt to EBITDA on a
proportionately consolidated business, was 6.9x at the end of May
2012. Looking forward and compounding matters, over the next two
to three years KMI intends to drop down the remaining assets owned
by El Paso to EPBO and to KMP. The sales proceeds received by El
Paso could be up-streamed to KMI to repay the $5.4 billion of
acquisition debt at the KMI level. If this occurs, it could push
the leverage at El Paso to about 10.0x, an unsustainable level on
a stand-alone basis.

Once the drop downs are complete, the company will rely on
distributions from EPBO and possible investments by KMI to service
its debt. El Paso owns approximately 44% of EPBO which means that
there is significant leakage to public unit holders for any
distributions paid by EPBO. El Paso is also structurally
subordinated to the significant debt burden at EPBO and its
subsidiaries. While KMI benefits from significant distributions
from KMP, it has nearly $9 billion of debt to service along with
an aggressive dividend program to its shareholders. As such, KMI
is expected to be reluctant to down-stream funds to El Paso to
support its debt service requirements.

El Paso's SGL-3 liquidity rating reflects adequate coverage of
interest expense, working capital, capital expenditures, and the
$128 million of debt maturities that occur prior to the end of
2013. At the closing of the KMI-El Paso acquisition, El Paso's
credit facility was repaid and cancelled. Therefore, El Paso is
highly reliant on secondary sources of liquidity such as proceeds
from asset sales, or alternatively, from liquidity support from
KMI. At the closing of the acquisition, KMI pledged certain assets
of El Paso as collateral for the acquisition loans, as well as the
secured notes of KMI and the unsecured notes of El Paso. As a
result, KMI's bank credit facilities now limit the ability to the
sell El Paso's assets to generate liquidity.

El Paso's rating has been put under review for upgrade on the
possibility that KMI elects to guarantee the El Paso debt. At
most, the guarantee could result in a one notch upgrade to Ba2 to
match KMI's rating. Without a guarantee, Moody's would consider
downgrading El Paso's rating, likely by one notch to B1 to reflect
its elevated leverage and likelihood that leverage will increase
as assets are sold and dropped down to KMP and EPBO.

El Paso Pipeline Partners Operating Company

EPBO's Ba1 CFR reflects the relative strength of EPBO's business
profile that is tempered by the elevated leverage levels of El
Paso and KMI on a consolidated and proportional share basis. On a
standalone basis, EPBO has credit characteristics that could
support an investment grade rating. Its assets generate cash flow
that is relatively stable and predictable. However, EPBO provides
significant credit support for the debt obligations of El Paso,
and to a lesser degree, for KMI. The credit-worthiness of EPBO is
influenced and constrained by the highly leveraged balance sheet
of El Paso where leverage is expected to increase as assets are
dropped down out of El Paso. The financial metrics of KMI, and El
Paso in particular, are the primary drivers for El Paso's rating.
EPBO's Ba1 CFR represents a significant improvement over El Paso's
stand-alone credit, but also represents an approximate three notch
reduction from its potential rating given the high-quality
pipeline and infrastructure assets it owns.

EPBO's SGL-2 liquidity rating reflects Moody's expectation that
EPBO will have sufficient liquidity over the next twelve months to
cover its maintenance capital spending, interest expense,
distributions, and working capital needs using internally
generated cash flow and through its access to the El Paso Pipeline
Partners, L.P. (EPB) revolving credit facility. Any significant
growth capital expenditures at EPBO would need to be financed
externally, while any acquisitions of assets from El Paso would be
expected to be financed by the issuance of new debt and equity,
but the drop down would only occur if these markets are available.
EPB's $1 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility was
unused at March 31, 2012 and expires in 2016. The partnership is
in compliance with the maintenance covenants of the revolving
credit facility by a margin that would permit full usage of the
credit facility without the addition of any incremental EBITDA.
Alternate liquidity is limited as EPBO's assets are limited to
stock positions in its operating subsidiaries. The stock of these
operating subsidiaries is not publicly traded. The credit facility
limits EPB and EPBO asset dispositions to an amount that
represents less than 10% of consolidated tangible assets.

The outlook for EPBO is stable. EPBO's ratings are constrained by
the rating of El Paso. Until El Paso's and KMI's combined leverage
is reduced to less than 5.5x, EPBO's rating is unlikely to be
upgraded. Assuming there are no changes to its business profile,
an upgrade is possible when EPBO's leverage is below 4.5x and the
parent level leverage is less than 5.5x. EPBO could be downgraded
if EPBO's leverage approaches 5.0x or if growth in distributions
becomes more aggressive putting additional pressure on EPBO's cash
flows and liquidity.

LDK SOLAR: Reaches Agreement to Terminate Wafer Contract
--------------------------------------------------------
LDK Solar Co., Ltd., has reached an agreement with a Europe-based
PV customer to terminate their long-term solar wafer supply
agreement.

Under the terms of the agreement, originally signed in 2008, LDK
Solar was to supply multicrystalline silicon wafers over a ten-
year period.  As part of the original agreement, the PV customer
made an advanced payment representing a portion of the contract
value to LDK Solar.

As part of the settlement, the parties mutually agreed to
terminate the supply agreement, and that LDK Solar will receive
approximately $37 million.

"We are pleased to reach a mutual agreement to terminate our 2008
wafer supply agreement with this customer," stated Xingxue Tong,
President and CEO of LDK Solar.  "We will continue to work closely
with our customers and partners in the currently challenging
environment for the PV industry."

LDK Solar is assessing the extent of financial impact on its full
year 2012 earnings of the termination and related contract
termination charges.

Eric Hornbeck at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Dewey & LeBoeuf
LLP told a Delaware bankruptcy court Tuesday that it deserved a
$500,000 fee enhancement for its "Herculean" work on the Los
Angeles Dodgers baseball team's bankruptcy as the law firm itself
was collapsing.

Bankruptcy Law360 says Dewey, represented by its former attorneys
who are now with Jones Day, argued it deserved the bonus on top of
the $12.4 million it planned to request in its final fee
application because its work met the "rare and exceptional"
standard for fee enhancements.

                       About Dewey & LeBoeuf

Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Case No. 12-12321) to complete the wind-down of its operations.
The firm had struggled with high debt and partner defections.
Dewey disclosed debt of $245 million and assets of $193 million in
its chapter 11 filing late evening on May 29, 2012.

Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP operated as a prestigious, New York City-
based, law firm that traced its roots to the 2007 merger of Dewey
Ballantine LLP -- originally founded in 1909 as Root, Clark & Bird
-- and LeBoeuf, Lamb, Green & MacCrae LLP -- originally founded in
1929.  In recent years, more than 1,400 lawyers worked at the firm
in numerous domestic and foreign offices.

At its peak, Dewey employed about 2,000 people with 1,300 lawyers
in 25 offices across the globe.  When it filed for bankruptcy,
only 150 employees were left to complete the wind-down of the
business.

Dewey's offices in Hong Kong and Beijing are being wound down.
The partners of the separate partnership in England are in process
of winding down the business in London and Paris, and
administration proceedings in England were commenced May 28.  All
lawyers in the Madrid and Brussels offices have departed.  Nearly
all of the lawyers and staff of the Frankfurt office have
departed, and the remaining personnel are preparing for the
closure.  The firm's office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, is being
prepared for closure and the liquidation of the firm's local
affiliate.  The partners of the firm in the Johannesburg office,
South Africa, are planning to wind down the practice.

The firm's ownership interest in its practice in Warsaw, Poland,
was sold to the firm of Greenberg Traurig PA on May 11 for
$6 million.  The Pension benefit Guaranty Corp. took $2 million of
the proceeds as part of a settlement.

Judge Martin Glenn oversees the case.  Albert Togut, Esq., at
Togut, Segal & Segal LLP, represents the Debtor.  Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions LLC serves as claims and notice agent.  The petition was
signed by Jonathan A. Mitchell, chief restructuring officer.

JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Revolver Agent on behalf of the
lenders under the Revolver Agreement, hired Kramer Levin Naftalis
& Frankel LLP.  JPMorgan, as Collateral Agent for the Revolver
Lenders and the Noteholders, hired FTI Consulting and Gulf
Atlantic Capital, as financial advisors.  The Noteholders hired
Bingham McCutchen LLP as counsel.

The U.S. Trustee formed two committees -- one to represent
unsecured creditors and the second to represent former Dewey
partners.  The creditors committee hired Brown Rudnick LLP led by
Edward S. Weisfelner, Esq., as counsel.  The Former Partners hired
Tracy L. Klestadt, Esq., and Sean C. Southard, Esq., at Klestadt &
Winters, LLP, as counsel.

                     About Los Angeles Dodgers

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

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

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

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

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

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

The LA Dodgers is the 12th sports team in North America to have
sought bankruptcy protection.

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

The Dodgers emerged from bankruptcy on April 30, 2012.  The plan
is based on a $2.15 billion sale of the baseball club and Dodger
Stadium to Guggenheim Baseball Management.  The plan pays all
creditors in full, with the excess going to Mr. McCourt.


MBIA INSURANCE: Moody's Downgrades IFS Rating to 'Caa2'
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to Caa2, from B3, the
insurance financial strength rating of MBIA Insurance Corporation
(MBIA Corp.) and to Caa1, from B2, the senior debt rating of MBIA
Corp.'s parent company, MBIA Inc. The MBIA Corp. rating action
concludes a review initiated in December 2011. The ratings
outlooks for both companies are developing.

The rating actions have implications for various transactions
wrapped by MBIA Insurance Corporation as discussed later in this
press release.

RATING RATIONALE -- MBIA INSURANCE CORPORATION

Moody's stated that the downgrade of MBIA Corp. to Caa2, from B3,
reflected a number of factors:

1) The insurer's weak liquidity position. At September 30, 2012,
MBIA Corp. had approximately $386 million of liquid assets -- a
modest amount relative to the insurer's contingent liabilities;

2) Ongoing deterioration of MBIA's commercial real estate
portfolio that could lead to meaningful claims in the near future
and threaten MBIA's already strained liquidity;

3) The likelihood that any potential global settlement with Bank
of America over outstanding claims would be consummated at terms
characteristic of a distressed exchange;

4) The likelihood of a claims payment deferral or other regulatory
intervention at MBIA Corp. absent a settlement with Bank of
America should significant claims materialize.

Last week, Bank of America Corporation announced that it had made
a tender offer to purchase at par any and all of MBIA Inc.'s
outstanding senior notes due 2034. The tender offer follows MBIA's
announcement on November 7 that it would solicit consent from its
senior noteholders to amend its debt indentures by substituting
National Public Finance Guarantee Corporation for MBIA Corp. in
the definitions of "Restricted Subsidiary" and "Principal
Subsidiary." The proposed indenture amendments, if approved by
more than 50% of the noteholders of each series of MBIA Inc.
notes, would allow MBIA Inc. to avoid a default on its own debt if
MBIA Corp. were placed into a rehabilitation or liquidation
proceeding. BAC's tender offer on 13 November seeks to obtain
ownership of at least 50% of one series of MBIA notes in order to
block MBIA's consent solicitation.

The insurance financial strength rating of MBIA Mexico, S.A. de
C.V. was also downgraded to Caa2 (national scale rating of
Caa2.mx) with a developing outlook, given its reliance on the
support from MBIA Corp.

The developing outlook of MBIA Corp. reflects the meaningful
uncertainty faced by MBIA Corp. and the potential that a global
settlement between MBIA and Bank of America could lead to either
an improvement or deterioration in the credit profile of the
insurer, depending on the specific terms.

Rating Drivers -- MBIA Insurance Corporation

Moody's cited the following factors that could lead to a rating
upgrade for MBIA Insurance Corporation:

- A global settlement between Bank of America and MBIA that would
   leave MBIA Corp. solvent

- Substantial improvements in MBIA Corp.'s commercial real estate
   exposure that would limit its potential claims

- A meaningful capital infusion into MBIA Corp.

Moody's cited the following factors that could lead to a rating
downgrade for MBIA Insurance Corporation:

- Inability to reach a global settlement with Bank of America
   that would leave MBIA corp. solvent

- Regulatory intervention that could reduce or disrupt payment of
   claims, such as a payment deferral plan or rehabilitation, that
   would cause significant loss severity to policyholders
   incommensurate with the current rating

Not affected by the rating actions were MBIA UK Insurance Limited
(insurance financial strength of B3, under review for downgrade)
and National Public Finance Guarantee Corporation (MBIA National
financial strength of Baa2, negative outlook).

RATING RATIONALE -- MBIA INC.

The rating agency commented that the downgrade of MBIA Inc.'s
senior debt to Caa1 reflects:

1) The ongoing stress at MBIA Corp. and the risk of claims payment
deferral or other regulatory action including potentially a
rehabilitation or an insolvency proceeding, in the event that MBIA
and Bank of America cannot reach a global settlement that would
leave MBIA solvent;

2) The credit linkage between MBIA Inc. and its MBIA Corp.
subsidiary given the cross default provision in MBIA Inc.'s senior
debt indentures. A rehabilitation proceeding at MBIA Corp. is an
event of default;

3) The limited liquidity at MBIA Inc. relative to potential debt
repayments due under a possible cross default with MBIA Corp. At
September 30, 2012, MBIA Inc. had $432 million of liquid assets
and $897 million of senior notes outstanding;

4) Bank of America's recent tender offer on one class of MBIA
Inc.'s senior bonds which, if successful, could prevent MBIA from
completing a consent solicitation that would have removed the
cross default provision between MBIA Corp. and MBIA Inc.

The developing outlook of MBIA Inc., similar to the outlook on
MBIA Corp., reflects the divergent possibilities for its credit
profile over the near-to-medium term.

Rating Drivers -- MBIA Inc.

Moody's cited the following factors that could lead to a rating
upgrade for MBIA Inc.:

- A successful consent solicitation from MBIA that would further
   delink MBIA Inc. from its MBIA Corp. subsidiary

- A material strengthening of MBIA Inc.'s liquidity through
  dividends and/or potential capital raises

- A global settlement between MBIA and Bank of America that would
   leave MBIA Corp. solvent

Moody's cited the following factors that could lead to a rating
downgrade for MBIA Inc.:

- Further deterioration at MBIA Corp. that increases the risks of
   an insolvency proceeding

- A successful tender offer by Bank of America that would keep
   the cross default provisions in debt indentures

- Further deterioration of MBIA Inc.'s liquidity

TREATMENT OF WRAPPED TRANSACTIONS

Moody's ratings on securities that are guaranteed or "wrapped" by
a financial guarantor are generally maintained at a level equal to
the higher of the following: a) the rating of the guarantor (if
rated at the investment grade level); or b) the published
underlying rating (and for structured securities, the outlined in
Moody's special comment entitled "Assignment of Wrapped Ratings
When Financial Guarantor Falls Below Investment Grade" (May 2008);
and Moody's November 10, 2008 announcement entitled "Moody's
Modifies Approach to Rating Structured Finance Securities Wrapped
by Financial Guarantors".

In light of the downgrade to Caa2 and developing outlook of MBIA
Insurance Corp.'s rating, Moody's will adjust the rating of
securities wrapped by MBIA Corp. based on the approach discussed
above.

LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

The following ratings have been downgraded:

MBIA Inc. -- senior unsecured debt to Caa1 developing, from B2

MBIA Insurance Corporation: Insurance financial strength to Caa2
developing, from B3; surplus notes to C (hyb) from Caa3 (hyb) ;
and preferred stock to C (hyb) from Ca (hyb)

MBIA Mexico S.A. de C.V. -- insurance financial strength to Caa2
developing, from B3; and national scale insurance financial
strength to Caa2.mx developing, from B1.mx

The last rating action was on December 19, 2011, when Moody's
downgraded MBIA Inc. to B2.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Moody's Rating
Methodology for the Financial Guaranty Insurance Industry,
published in September 2006.

OVERVIEW OF MBIA

MBIA Inc. provides financial guarantees to issuers in the
municipal and structured finance markets in the United States, as
well as internationally. MBIA also offers various complementary
services, such as investment management and municipal investment
contracts.

Moody's insurance financial strength ratings are opinions of the
ability of insurance companies to pay punctually senior
policyholder claims and obligations.

NOTE: Moody's National Scale Ratings (NSRs) are intended as
relative measures of creditworthiness among debt issues and
issuers within a country, enabling market participants to better
differentiate relative risks. NSRs differ from Moody's global
scale ratings in that they are not globally comparable with the
full universe of Moody's rated entities, but only with NSRs for
other rated debt issues and issuers within the same country. NSRs
are designated by a ".nn" country modifier signifying the relevant
country, as in ".mx" for Mexico. For further information on
Moody's approach to national scale ratings, please refer to
Moody's Rating Implementation Guidance published in October 2012
entitled "Mapping Moody's National Scale Ratings to Global Scale
Ratings.


MEDICAL ALARM: In Talks for Possible Expansion in China
-------------------------------------------------------
Medical Alarm Concepts Holdings, Inc., entered into negotiations
with an institutional investor that has expressed interest in
completing a strategic investment in the Company.  This investment
would be used to expand current operations both domestically and
internationally, raise inventory levels and allow the Company
flexibility in negotiating tactical and strategic acquisitions.

On Nov. 6, 2012, the Company responded to a Request For Proposal
(RFP), which, if awarded, would include the opening of an office
in the People's Republic of China and a possible additional
strategic investment in the Company.  This strategic investment,
if consummated, would be utilized to expand both international and
domestic distribution of the MediPendant product and associated
monitoring services, and to expand working capital balances.

                        About Medical Alarm

Plymouth Meeting, Pa.-based Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc.,
utilizes new technology in the medical alarm industry to provide
24-hour personal response monitoring services and related products
to subscribers with medical or age-related conditions.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2011, showed
$1.40 million in total assets, $3.41 million in total liabilities,
and a $2 million total stockholders' deficit.  As of March 31,
2011, the Company had $0 in cash.

The Company said in its quarterly report for the period ended
March 31, 2012, that "We believe we cannot satisfy our cash
requirements for the next twelve months with our current cash and,
unless we receive additional financing, we may be unable to
proceed with our plan of operations.  We do not anticipate the
purchase or sale of any significant equipment.  We also do not
expect any significant additions to the number of our employees.
The foregoing represents our best estimate of our cash needs based
on current planning and business conditions.  Additional funds are
required, and unless we receive proceeds from financing, we may
not be able to proceed with our business plan for the development
and marketing of our core services.  Should this occur, we will
suspend or cease operations."

"We anticipate incurring operating losses in the foreseeable
future.  Therefore, our auditors have raised substantial doubt
about our ability to continue as a going concern."


MEDICAL CARD: S&P Keeps 'CCC' Counterparty Credit Rating on Watch
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said its 'CCC' long-tern
counterparty credit rating on Medical Card System Inc. (MCS)
remains on CreditWatch with developing implications, where
we initially placed it on July 26, 2012. "The 'B' long-term
financial strength and counterparty credit ratings on MCS's
operating companies, MCS Advantage Inc., MCS Life Insurance Co.,
and MCS Health Management Options Inc. also remain on CreditWatch
with developing implications," S&P said.

"The continuing CreditWatch reflects our expectation that MCS will
improve its financial profile through positive operating results
in 2012, compared with losses in 2011 and first-quarter 2012,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Neal Freedman. "This
expectation is based on the company's positive operating results
for second-quarter 2012 and further significant improvement in
third-quarter 2012. This improvement is driven by various
corrective actions taken by the company's new senior management
team, which joined the company in December 2011 and includes
enhanced medical-management capabilities and an improved financial
infrastructure. Furthermore, management is meeting regularly with
the lending group regarding potential waivers or revisions to
the credit agreement to avoid a liquidity event, and we expect
audited year-end 2011 financial statements to be available in
December 2012."

"We could raise or lower the ratings on MCS and its operating
companies in connection with its operating performance and its
lender negotiations. Improved operating performance and a near-
term successful lender negotiation could result in a one-notch or
more upgrade. Conversely, if the company produced operating losses
in 2012 or if lender negotiations prove unsuccessful beyond the
near term, we could lower the ratings by one or more notches," S&P
said.


MEDYTOX SOLUTIONS: Delays Q3 Form 10-Q for Limited Resources

Commission it cannot file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for

----------------------------------------------------
Lance Duroni at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that NewPage Corp.'s

Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Northampton Generating Co. still doesn't give a hint

NSG HOLDINGS: S&P Assigns Preliminary 'BB' Corp. Credit Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary 'BB'
corporate credit rating to NSG Holdings LLC. The outlook is
stable. "At the same time, we assigned a preliminary 'BB+' issue
rating to the proposed $146 million term loan facility maturing
2019 with a preliminary recovery rating of '2'. The '2'
preliminary rating indicates a substantial recovery (70% to 90%)
if a default occurs," S&P said.

The ratings on NSGH reflect an "aggressive" financial risk profile
marked by high debt balances following the dividend
capitalization. "Although the dividend recapitalization weakens
the financial measures for 2012 from the improved 2011 levels,
almost pushing it back to 'highly leveraged', we expect that the
measures will strengthen in line with 'aggressive' in 2013 and
2014 driven by amortization of the project-level debt and the debt
at NSGH. We view NSG's business risk profile as 'satisfactory,'
reflecting the company's strong long-term contracted revenue
profile (86% of revenues and 94% of distributions are contracted
until the debt matures in 2025) with creditworthy counterparties,
favorable fuel supply contracts, and known operating track record,
tempered by the company's moderate portfolio diversity," S&P said.

NSGH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Northern Star Generation LLC,
which owns or has beneficial interest in eight electric generation
facilities that consist of about 1,400 megawatts of units fueled
with natural gas, coal, waste coal, and distillate fuel oil, with
a net ownership of 1,135 MW. The facilities are in four states,
and currently all but one have power purchase agreements (PPA) or
tolling agreements that expire between 2015 and 2027. Cambria
operates as a merchant power facility in the PJM day-ahead market,
following the expiry of its PPA," S&P said.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation that the dividend
recapitalization reflects the one-time monetization of future
benefits of the commencement in June 2012 of the credit-
supportive, long-term power sale for Vandolah," S&P said.

"We expect the company to improve its current capital structure
over the next two years, such that by 2014 it is comfortably below
5x, although we expect it to be slightly above this level in
2013," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Trevor D'Olier-Lees.

"This should be achievable with no additional issuance of holding
company debt and reflects the benefits of debt amortization at the
project level. We also expect adjusted funds from operations to
total debt to slightly improve to 13% to 14% over the next two
years. We would lower the ratings if leverage does not trend down
after this year, and if funds from operations to total debt
consistently stays below 12% in 2013 and 2014. This would most
likely occur if NSGH exercised its flexibility to raise additional
debt, but could also be caused by a sharp increase in gas prices
for the company's unhedged position or a decrease in energy
revenues driven by a decline in coal prices, which we do not
anticipate. We could raise the rating if the company's financial
profile is more in line with 'significant', with debt/EBITDA of
less than 4x and funds from operations to total debt of at least
20%. Such improvement would likely result from an asset sale that
lowers debt," S&P said.

the requisite formatted financial data and narrative information

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

In its audit report on the Company's 2011 financial statements,

substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.  The independent auditors noted that the Company
has incurred recurring operating losses, negative operating cash
flows and has an accumulated deficit.

The Company reported a net loss of $7.67 million in 2011, compared
with a net loss of $7.80 million in 2010.

                         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.

PFI HOSPITALITY: Cornerstone Bank Forecloses on Hotel
-----------------------------------------------------
Bill Bowden at Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Cornerstone
Bank of Eureka Springs took possession of Harrison's Hotel Seville
after PFI Hospitality was unable to find a buyer for the 83-year
old building.

The report relates the three-story, 57-room Spanish revival hotel
will be closed until spring, while the bank searches for a buyer
or property-management company, said Charles Cross, president and
CEO of Cornerstone.

According to the report, PFI Hospitality owed $1.6 million to the
bank on a first mortgage loan and $1.2 million to the U.S. Small
Business Administration on a second mortgage.  Mr. Cross said the
bank will try to sell the hotel to recoup the amount it is owed,
which is now "a little more" than stated in the bankruptcy filing.

The report notes the previous owners spent about $3.5 million on
the project.

The report says PFI Hospitality bought the hotel in 2008 for
$600,000 and spent about $2.9 million renovating it, said Jack
Moyer, one of the majority investors in the group.  PFI
Hospitality was asking $2.1 million for the Seville.  In lieu of a
buyer, the group also was seeking an investor willing to pay
$250,000 and guarantee the debt.

The report relates Mr. Cross said the bank may find a buyer before
Spring.  He said he's been talking to three potential buyers, all
of whom have experience in the hotel business.

Based in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, PFI Hospitality, Inc., dba The
1929 Hotel Seville filed for Chapter 11 protection on May 10, 2012
(Bankr. W.D. Ark. Case No. 12-71888).  Stanley V. Bond, Esq., at
Bond Law Office, represents the Debtor.  The Debtor estimated both
assets and debts of between $1 million and $10 million.

PIPELINE DATA: Credit-Card Processor Files Chapter 11 to Sell
-------------------------------------------------------------
Pipeline Data Inc., a processor of debit and credit cards for
smaller retailers, filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Del.
Case No. 12-13123) Nov. 19 in Delaware with plans for selling the
business as a going concern.

Alpharetta, Georgia-based Pipeline Data provides credit and debit
card payment processing services to approximately 15,000
merchants.  The Company has 36 employees.

Pipeline, which sough bankruptcy together with affiliates, owes
$66.6 million in principal and interest to first-lien creditors
who have liens on all assets.

Pipeline started experiencing financial difficulties in 2008.
Normal industry attrition rates spiked, merchant closures
increased, and new merchant origination channels weakened.  In the
second half of 2010, Pipeline's processing and technology partner,
Fidelity Information Systems, exited the processing business and
shut down operations, forcing Pipeline to abandon its technology
investment and to pursue an alternative strategy.

The Company has determined that a sale of its business as a going
concern would be in the best interest of creditors and other
parties in interest.  The Debtors have tapped AlixPartners and
Dragonfly Capital LLP to market and sell the business.

Pipeline has identified a purchaser for its business and intends
to pursue Bankruptcy Court approval of the sale, subject to any
higher and better offers that may be received in accordance with
Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Debtors have not filed the sale motion and have not yet
identified the buyer in court filings.

The Debtors on the Petition Date filed motions to pay prepetition
wages, deem utilities adequately assured, use cash collateral, and
honor obligations to customers.

According to the case docket, the schedules of assets and
liabilities and the statement of financial affairs are due Dec. 4,
2012.  The Chapter 11 plan and the disclosure statement are due
March 19, 2013.

Bloomberg News notes that a credit-card processor from Canoga
Park, California, named Process America Inc. filed for Chapter 11
protection one week ago in Woodland Hills, California.

RENEGADE HOLDINGS: Judge to Consider Liquidation at Jan. 8 Hearing
------------------------------------------------------------------
Richard Craver at Winston-Salem Journal reports that Judge Thomas
Schroeder has postponed a hearing on the fate of three Mocksville
tobacco companies until 9:30 a.m. Jan. 8, 2013, after receiving
requests from multiple groups involved in the case.

According to the report, Judge Schroeder's eventual ruling has
the potential to force the liquidation of Renegade Holdings Inc.,
Renegade Tobacco Co. and Alternative Brands Inc., perhaps as soon
as early 2013, or allow the companies to emerge from Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection.  The companies have a combined 85
employees.

The report relates bankruptcy trustee Peter Tourtellot requested
the postponement to give him more time to review his option
following a recent U.S. District Court judge's ruling that the
companies owe at least $4.1 million in disputed federal excise
taxes.  That likely could include amending the reorganization plan
a third time.

The report notes objections to Mr. Tourtellot's current
reorganization plan have been filed by the National Association of
Attorneys General, the U.S. Justice Department's Alcohol Tobacco
Tax and Trade Bureau, the bankruptcy case administrator and three
creditors, including Carolina Bank.

The report says the federal agency and the association said
Alternative has not paid all of the federal excise tax applicable
to large filtered cigars.

The report relates the goal has been for Renegade to exit
bankruptcy in early 2013, focusing primarily on filtered cigars,
including international contract sales, and taking its discount
brands national.  At that time, it would be branded as Alternative
Brands.

                      About Renegade Holdings

Renegade Holdings and two subsidiaries -- Alternative Brands, Inc.
and Renegade Tobacco Company -- filed for Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. M.D.N.C. Lead Case No. 09-50140) on Jan. 28, 2009, and
exited bankruptcy on June 1, 2010.  They were put back into
bankruptcy July 19, 2010, when Judge William L. Stocks vacated the
reorganization plan, in part because of a criminal investigation
of owner Calvin Phelps and the companies regarding what
authorities called "unlawful trafficking of cigarettes."

Alternative Brands is a federally licensed manufacturer of tobacco
products consisting primarily of cigarettes and cigars.  Renegade
Tobacco distributes the tobacco products produced by ABI through
wholesalers and retailers in 19 states and for export.  ABI also
is a contract fabricator for private label brands of cigarettes
and cigars which are produced for other licensed tobacco
manufacturers.

The stock of RHI is owned indirectly by Calvin A. Phelps through
his ownership of the stock of Compliant Tobacco, LLC which, in
turn, owns all of the stock of RHI which in turn owns all of the
stock of RTC and ABI.  Mr. Phelps was the chief executive officer
of all three companies. All three of the Debtors' have their
offices and production facilities in Mocksville, North Carolina.

In August 2010, the Bankruptcy Court approved the appointment of
Peter Tourtellot, managing director of turnaround-management
company Anderson Bauman Tourtellot Vos & Co., as Chapter 11
trustee.


REVEL CASINO: $850-Mil. Debt Trading at Around 50% Off
------------------------------------------------------
Suzette Parmley, writing for the Philadelphia Inquirer, reported
last week that the Revel casino's $850 million loan, which comes
due in 2017, now is priced at about 52 cents on the dollar, a
significant drop from where it traded in September and right
before Hurricane Sandy as well.  According to the Inquirer,
analysts call that a clear sign that investors have lost
confidence in Revel's ability to pay its debt and stay in
business, though such pricing does not mean default is definite.

"Where the [loan] and bonds are trading indicates the market is
quite concerned," said Robert Heller, managing director and head
of gaming and leisure at UBS Securities L.L.C., the Inquirer
report said.  Revel is "challenged because of the stress in
Atlantic City compounded by the storm damage, which sets the city
back even further."

According to the Inquirer, gaming-industry analysts say Hurricane
Sandy delivered a gut punch that Revel, teetering toward
insolvency even before the hurricane, will be hard-pressed to
recover from.  Analysts say there is little hope in the
foreseeable future that Revel will avoid defaulting on its massive
debt.

"There is no doubt the probability of default has increased,"
Andrew Zarnett of Deutsche Bank AG said last week, according to
the report.  "There is no way to dispute that, given what has
happened to Atlantic City the last two weeks."

According to the report, Revel opened seven months ago, is
carrying the most debt, and is still trying to develop a
clientele.  The $2.4 billion mega-casino, built with more than
$300 million in state credits and tax rebates, lost five days of
business to Sandy, reopening at noon Nov. 3.  Getting customers
back has been slow, as it has been for all the casinos.

Revel, the Inquirer report said, was eighth in revenue among
Atlantic City casinos in May, June, July, August, and September.
In October, even the smaller and older Atlantic Club and Resorts
Casino outperformed it.

capacity of 7.5 million tons.  It was formed in March 2011
following the purchase of three steel facilities located in
Sparrows Point, Maryland; Wheeling, West Virginia and Warren,
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

RG Steel along with affiliates, including WP Steel Venture LLC,
sought bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 12-
11661) on May 31, 2012, to pursue a sale of the business.  The
bankruptcy was precipitated by liquidity shortfall and a dispute
with Mountain State Carbon, LLC, and a Severstal affiliate, that
restricted the shipment of coke used in the steel production
process.

The Debtors estimated assets and debts in excess of $1 billion as
of the Chapter 11 filing.  The Debtors owe (i) $440 million,
including $16.9 million in outstanding letters of credit, to
senior lenders led by Wells Fargo Capital Finance, LLC, as
administrative agent, (ii) $218.7 million to junior lenders, led
by Cerberus Business Finance, LLC, as agent, (iii) $130.5 million
on account of a subordinated promissory note issued by majority
owner The Renco Group, Inc., and (iv) $100 million on a secured
promissory note issued by Severstal.

Judge Kevin J. Carey presides over the case.

The Debtors are represented in the case by Robert J. Dehney, Esq.,
and Erin R. Fay, Esq., at Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP,
and Matthew A. Feldman, Esq., Shaunna D. Jones, Esq., Weston T.
Eguchi, Esq., at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP, represent the
Debtors.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in
the case.  Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP represents the
Committee.  Huron Consulting Services LLC serves as its financial
advisor.

Wheeling Corrugating division to Nucor Corp. brought in $7
million.  That plant in Sparrows Point, Maryland, fetched the
highest price, $72.5 million.


RIVER CANYON: Hires Seter Vander to Challenge UWSD Claim
--------------------------------------------------------
River Canyon Real Estate Investments, LLC, sought and obtained
permission from the Bankruptcy Court to employ Seter Vander Wall,
P.C., as special counsel.

On Aug. 15, 2012, the United Water & Sanitation District filed
Proof of Claim No. 30 in the bankruptcy case.  UWSD asserts a
fully secured claim in the amount of $9,756,355.  UWSD asserts the
basis for the Claim is Colo.Rev.Stat. Sec. 32-1-1001(1)(j)(I).

The Debtor disputes the validity, priority and extent of the UWSD
Claim.

Title 32, Article 1 of the Colorado Revised Statutes is the
"Special District Act".  The Act provides the statutory framework
for special districts in Colorado.  UWSD is a special district
created under the Act.

The Debtor asserts and believes the employment of special counsel
to assist lead counsel Sender & Wasserman, P.C., in the
prosecution of the objection to USWD's claim and any and all other
matters arising in the case relating to the Act and its interplay
with the bankruptcy case is reasonable and appropriate.

Kim Seter, Esq., attests that the firm is a "disinterested person"
as the term is defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code.

SVW anticipates that Kim Seter will provide the bulk of the legal
services rendered by the firm.  Mr. Seter charges $295 per hour.
Other SVW attorneys who may provide services bill at rates between
$200 and $235 per hour.  SVW bills its paralegals at the rate of
$130 per hour.

The Debtor has not provided a postpetition retainer to SVW.

assets.

River Canyon filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Colo. Case No.
12-20763) on May 23, 2012, in Denver as part of its settlement
negotiations with lender Beal Bank Nevada, and to preserve the
value of its assets.

At Beal Bank's behest, Cordes & Company was named, effective
Oct. 15, 2010, as receiver for the 643-acre real estate
development with golf course in Douglas County, Colorado.

The Debtor disclosed assets of $19.7 million and liabilities of
$45.3 million in its schedules.  The property and golf course are
estimated to be worth $11 million, and secures a $45 million debt.

Judge Elizabeth E. Brown presides over the case.  The Debtor is
represented by Sender & Wasserman, P.C., as its Chapter 11
counsel.

Alan Klein, Glenn Jacks, Dan Hudick, and Bill Hudick own most of
the Debtor.  Mr. Jacks, which has a 12.8% membership interest,
signed the Chapter 11 petition.

Richard A. Wieland, the U.S. Trustee for Region 19, was unable to
form an official committee of unsecured creditors because an
insufficient number of persons holding unsecured claims against
the Debtor have expressed interest in serving on a committee.  The
U.S. Trustee reserves the right to appoint such a committee should
interest develop among the creditors.

America Inc., deferring approval of the disclosure statement
presented by SCNA and its creditors committee until after the
deadline.

Bankruptcy Law360 relates that SCNA and the committee filed a

SAGAMORE PARTNERS: Wants Chance to Make Up Missed Mortgage Payment
------------------------------------------------------------------
Kelly Rizzetta at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the owner of
Miami Beach's bankrupt Sagamore Hotel on Wednesday endorsed the
ruling of a Florida bankruptcy judge who ordered lender LNR
Partners LLC to give the debtor a chance to make up a missed 2009
payment on the hotel's $31.5 million mortgage before foreclosing.

Sagamore Partners Ltd. lambasted LNR for asking U.S. Bankruptcy
Judge A. Jay Cristol to reconsider his Nov. 8 decision to
partially dismiss LNR's bid to be named a secured creditor on the
struggling hotel's mortgage, according to Bankruptcy Law360.

                      About Sagamore Partners

Bay Harbor, Florida-based Sagamore Partners, Ltd., owns and
operates the oceanfront Sagamore Hotel, also known as The Art
Hotel due to its captivating art collection from recognized
artists and its contemporary design.  The all-suite boutique hotel
is situated within Miami's Art Deco Historic District on South
Beach.  Sagamore Partners is owned by Martin Taplin.

Sagamore Partners filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.
Fla. Case No. 11-37867) on Oct. 6, 2011.  Judge A. Jay Cristol
presides over the case.  Joshua W. Dobin, Esq., and Peter D.
Russin, Esq., at Meland Russin & Budwick, P.A., in Miami, Fla.,
serve as the Debtor's counsel.  The Debtor disclosed $71,099,556
in assets and $52,132,849 in liabilities as of the Chapter 11
filing.  In its latest schedules, the Debtor disclosed $67,963,210
in assets and $52,060,862 in liabilities.  The petition was signed
by Martin W. Taplin, president of Miami Beach Vacation Resorts,
Inc., manager of Sagamore GP, LLC, general partner.

The Debtor has requested for an extension in its solicitation
period.  Bankruptcy Judge A. Jay Cristol denied approval of
the disclosure statement explaining its Plan of Reorganization.
Pursuant to the Plan, the Debtor proposes to reinstate the
maturity date of its loan with JPMCC 2006-LDP7 Miami Beach
Lodging, with interest from the Effective Date of the Plan at the
loan's non-default interest rate; and cure monetary defaults under
the Loan by paying the Secured Lender unpaid interest which has
accrued on the Loan at the Interest Rate, but not interest which
has accrued on the Loan at the Default Rate.

The U.S. Trustee will not appoint an official committee under 11
U.S.C. Sec. 1102 has not been appointed in the bankruptcy case of
Sagamore Partners Ltd until further notice.  The U.S. Trustee
reserves the right to appoint such a committee should interest
developed among the creditors.

Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing
a net loss of $660,000 on $853,000 of net revenue for the three

                         About Salon Media

San Francisco, Calif.-based Salon Media Group (OTC BB: SLNM.OB)
-- http://www.Salon.com/-- is an online news and social
networking company and an Internet publishing pioneer.

The Company reported a net loss of $4.09 million for the

Burr Pilger Mayer, Inc., in San Francisco, California, issued a
"going concern" qualification on the consolidated financial
statements for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012.  The
independent auditors noted that the Company has suffered recurring
losses and negative cash flows from operations and has an
accumulated deficit of $112.5 million at March 31, 2012, which
raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as
a going concern.


SAN BERNARDINO, CA: Files Budget; To Renegotiate With Calpers
-------------------------------------------------------------
Tim Reid, writing for Reuters, reports the interim city manager
for San Bernardino, California, on Monday presented a "pendency
plan" -- in effect the city's operating budget while it seeks
bankruptcy protection under Chapter 9 of the Bankruptcy Code.

According to Reuters, the pendency plan, which must be adopted by
a deeply split city council before it can take effect:

     -- seeks to close the city's $45.8 million General Fund
        deficit, which has left San Bernardino barely able to
        meet its city payroll;

     -- proposes deferring payments to the California Public
        Employees' Retirement System, negotiating payments over
        time and discussing the "reamortization" of its liability;

     -- seeks cuts elsewhere, such as the city's payment of its
        employees' contribution to Calpers, the elimination of
        vacant sworn positions in the Police Department, and the
        reduction of available overtime in the Fire Department.

The report notes San Bernardino lists Calpers as its biggest
creditor, with unfunded pension obligations totaling $143.3
million. Calpers says it uses a different calculation method and
pegs the debt at $319.5 million.

According to the report, the city has already halted payments to
Calpers since it declared bankruptcy, and owes more than $6
million in dues to the fund.  The report relates the city says its
halted payments to Calpers are merely deferrals, but the move is
in stark contrast to the path taken by two other Californian
cities -- Vallejo, which emerged from bankruptcy in 2011, and
Stockton, which is seeking bankruptcy protection.  Both cities
decided to keep current on all payments to the pension fund.

According to Reuters, San Bernardino's move, underscored in
Monday's budget plan, sets up a showdown between Calpers and other
creditors, particularly Wall Street bondholders and bond insurers,
over how they will be treated as creditors in the city's
bankruptcy.  Wall Street has already signaled that it intends to
fight Calpers' historical primacy as a creditor in the San
Bernardino case.

Calpers and city workers are challenging the city's right to be in
Chapter 9.

                        About San Bernardino

San Bernardino, California, filed an emergency petition for
municipal bankruptcy under Chapter 9 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 12-28006) on Aug. 1, 2012.  San
Bernardino, a city of about 210,000 residents roughly 65 miles
(104 km) east of Los Angeles, estimated assets and debts of more
than $1 billion in the bare-bones bankruptcy petition.

The city council voted on July 10, 2012, to file for bankruptcy.
The move lets San Bernardino bypass state-required mediation with
creditors and proceed directly to U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

The city is represented that Paul R. Glassman, Esq., at Stradling
Yocca Carlson & Rauth.

San Bernardino joins two other California cities in bankruptcy:
Stockton, an agricultural center of 292,000 east of San Francisco,
and Mammoth Lakes, a mountain resort town of 8,200 south of
Yosemite National Park.


SHINGLE SPRINGS: Moody's Says Gaming Compact No Rating Impact
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said that the amended Tribal State
Compact signed by the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians and
Gov. Brown of California on November 15, has no immediate rating
impact on Shingle Springs Tribal Gaming Authority (owned by the
Tribe)'s rating and outlook (Caa2, negative). The Amended Compact
is designed to improve the Authority's financial position by
reducing Compact fees paid to the State, among other changes, in
an effort to ensure the long-term financial viability of the
casino and the Authority. However, the amendment is still subject
to California legislature approval and subsequent approval by the
Department of Interior, timing and final terms of which remain
uncertain in Moody's view. The rating and outlook also incorporate
the uncertainty from potential debt restructuring and adverse
impact from the on-going litigation which is being appealed by the
Tribe currently.

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

Shingle Springs is an unincorporated governmental authority of the
Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians. The Authority was formed to
develop, own and operate the Red Hawk Casino, which opened on
December 17, 2008 near Sacramento, California.


SIDERA NETWORKS: S&P Rates Proposed $375MM Secured Credit 'B'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' issue-level
rating and '4' recovery rating to Sidera Networks Inc.'s proposed
$375 million senior secured credit facilities, which consist of a
$325 million term loan due 2018 and $50 million revolving credit
facility due 2017. "The '4' recovery rating on this debt indicates
our expectation for average (30% to 50%) recovery in the event of
a payment default. The company will use proceeds from the proposed
credit facilities to refinance its existing credit facilities,
provide for ongoing working capital, and pay transaction fees and
expenses," S&P said.

"We also affirmed our 'B' corporate credit rating and stable
outlook on Sidera," S&P said.

"The 'B' corporate credit rating on New York City-based fiber-
optic network operator Sidera reflects Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services' assessment of the company's financial risk profile as
'highly leveraged,' based on its high debt levels and our
expectation that capital expenditures will remain elevated,
resulting in minimal or negative free operating cash flow [FOCF]
generation for the next few years," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Michael Weinstein.

"Our assessment of Sidera's business risk profile as 'weak' is
based on significant competition in the large urban markets in
which the company operates and high customer concentration. In our
view, these risks outweigh our expectation for strong industry
demand growth for data bandwidth providers, particularly in the
wireless and financial services segments that Sidera serves, as
well as the company's recurring revenue business model and solid
overall profitability with EBITDA margins in the mid-30% area,"
S&P said.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation that EBITDA growth
will improve to the high-single-digit area in 2013, with Sidera
benefiting from new sales growth and cost-cutting initiatives. We
could lower the rating if sales performance falls well below our
expectation and churn increases above the current mid-1% rate,
causing EBITDA to decline more than 10% relative to performance
thus far in 2012. A significant debt-financed acquisition or
dividend payment to private equity sponsors that leads to EBITDA
coverage of cash interest declining to the low-2x area could also
result in a downgrade," S&P said.

"Although we view an upgrade as unlikely in the next year, we
could contemplate a higher rating if cost improvements and new
sales growth lead to an EBITDA increase of more than 25% with
improvements in customer churn back toward 1% per month," S&P
said.


SMART-TEK SOLUTIONS: Delays Form 10-Q for Third Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------
Smart-Tek Solutions, Inc., notified the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission that it will be delayed in filing its

SOLYNDRA LLC: Wins OK to Sell Factory, HG to Seagate for $90MM
--------------------------------------------------------------
Lance Duroni at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Solyndra LLC
received a Delaware bankruptcy judge's blessing Thursday to sell
its sprawling solar panel factory and headquarters in Fremont,
Calif., to hard drive manufacturer Seagate Technology LLC for
$90.3 million, wrapping up the company's yearlong liquidation.

At a court hearing, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Mary F. Walrath approved
Cupertino, Calif.-based Seagate's purchase of the 411,000-square-
foot facility and surrounding 30 acres, Bankruptcy Law360 relates.

                         About Solyndra LLC

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

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

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

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Solyndra LLC has
tapped Blank Rome LLP as counsel and BDO Consulting as financial
advisors.

In October 2011, the Debtors hired Berkeley Research Group, LLC,
and designated R. Todd Neilson as Chief Restructuring Officer.

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

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

Solyndra did not receive acceptable offers to buy the business as
a going concern.  Two auctions late last year brought in a total
of $8 million.  A three-day auction in February generated another
$3.8 million.  An auction in June generated $1.79 million from the
sale of 7,200 lots of equipment.

Solyndra filed a liquidating plan at the end of July and scheduled
a hearing on Sept. 7 for approval of the explanatory disclosure
statement.  The Plan is designed to pay 2.5% to 6% to unsecured
creditors with claims totaling as much as $120 million. Unsecured
creditors with $27 million in claims against the holding company
are projected to have a 3% dividend.

The TCR reported on Nov. 12, 2012, Bloomberg News said Solyndra
LLC gave formal notice that its reorganization plan was confirmed
and substantially consummated.  The amended joint Chapter 11 plan
became effective Nov. 7, according to a court filing that fixed
Jan. 13 as the professional fee bar date and Dec. 7 as the bar for
administrative claims.

TEXTRON FINANCIAL: Fitch Holds 'BB' Rating on Junior Sub. Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the Issuer Default Rating (IDR) and
long-term debt ratings for Textron Inc. (TXT) and Textron
Financial Corporation (TFC) at 'BBB-'.  The Rating Outlook for
both is Stable.  In addition, TXT's short-term ratings have been
affirmed at 'F3'.

TXT's ratings reflect the company's well-established market
positions in its aerospace, defense and industrial businesses;
improved liquidity; positive annual free cash flow (FCF); and
improving risk profile at TFC which continues to exit its non-
captive portfolio.  Debt/EBITDA at TXT's manufacturing businesses
declined to 1.9x at Sept. 29, 2012 from 2.1x at the end of 2011
and nearly 2.4x at the end of 2010.  Leverage and other credit
metrics could improve further as performance at TXT's
manufacturing businesses improves over the long term.

The possibility of a positive rating action is reduced in the near
term by concerns including pressure on U.S. defense spending,
which is an important part of the Bell and Textron Systems
businesses, low unit deliveries and margins at Cessna, execution
problems on several unmanned aerial programs at Textron Systems,
and expectations for weaker demand in Kautex's automotive markets
in Europe and Asia.  These concerns are exacerbated by uncertainty
surrounding the fiscal cliff and the effect of possible
sequestration on defense spending.

If the U.S. addresses these fiscal issues effectively in the near
term, visibility could improve in TXT's aerospace and defense
related businesses.  The possible favorable impact of improved
visibility, combined with TXT's priority for debt reduction
(approximately $500 million is scheduled to mature in the first
half of 2013), could potentially lead to a positive rating action
in the next few quarters.

Fitch estimates FCF after dividends could improve to a range of
$400 million - $500 million in 2012 compared to $311 million in
2011.  The increase largely reflects substantially lower pension
contributions.  FCF was slightly negative through the first nine
months of 2012, reflecting lower advance payments on military
contracts related to timing, and higher used-business-jet
inventory due to trade-ins.  FCF could be strong in the fourth
quarter and will depend on business jet deliveries, which can be
seasonal, and on an improvement in the pace of advance payments on
military contracts.  FCF could be lower than expected if the tepid
recovery in demand for business jets limits deliveries.

TXT contributed $642 million to its pension plans in 2011 and $181
million through the first nine months of 2012.  The company plans
to contribute a total of $200 million in 2012.  At the end of
2011, the pension deficit was $1.3 billion (79% funded).  TXT
estimates the unfunded position will be stable at the end of 2012
as contributions offset the negative impact of a lower discount
rate.

Other uses of cash include product development expenditures at
Cessna and Bell, and the possible resumption of higher dividend
payments which have been low for several years while TXT addressed
challenges at TFC's non-captive portfolio.  Also, acquisition
activity has been modest for several years but has the potential
to increase.

At Cessna, deliveries of business jets are up modestly from the
previous year, but the business jet recovery has been slower than
anticipated.  Demand is weakest in the light end of the business
jet market where Cessna's deliveries are concentrated, and the
market could be weak through much of 2013.  As a result, Cessna's
backlog has declined to $1.3 billion, increasing the risk that
Cessna could cut production if orders weaken further.  Margins are
low due to weak sales, pricing pressure, and product mix,
including recent sales of used jets, which typically generate
little profit.

Helicopter sales at Bell are benefiting from a recovery in demand
for commercial helicopters, with segment revenue up more than 20%
through the first three quarters of 2012.  Concerns about military
spending are mitigated by Bell's position on the H-1 and V-22
aircraft programs where deliveries should be generally stable
through 2014.  Also, Bell has a substantial installed base which
could benefit from aftermarket spending and modernization
programs.

At Textron Systems, results are likely to be negatively affected
by delays in certain programs and by execution challenges on
unmanned aerial programs that could depress margins for several
quarters before they are fully resolved.  However, Textron Systems
provides a broad mix of products that reduces exposure to single
programs.

TXT's Industrial segment performance has improved modestly during
2012, but the automotive fuel systems business could be challenged
in the near term by lower automotive production in Europe and
lower sales by Japanese OEM customers in China.  The Industrial
segment's golf and turf markets have begun to improve;
construction remains weak but could potentially benefit from the
beginning of a recovery in residential construction.

At Sept. 29, 2012, TXT's liquidity included manufacturing cash of
$1.2 billion and a $1 billion four-year bank facility that expires
in 2015.  The facility includes a maximum debt to capitalization
covenant of 65% and a requirement that TFC's leverage not exceed
9:1.  Fitch calculates these covenants were well within
compliance.  Manufacturing cash balances could increase by the end
of 2012 if TXT generates strong seasonal FCF in the fourth
quarter.

Liquidity is offset by scheduled debt maturities at TXT's
manufacturing business, including EUR239 million of notes due in
March 2013 and $215 million face value of convertible notes due in
May, including debt discount.  The amount of convertible notes
excludes approximately $214 million conversion value of the notes
which TXT may pay in cash or shares.  There are no other material
debt maturities owed by the manufacturing business until 2015.

Liquidity is also affected by TXT's support for TFC through
capital contributions and intercompany loans.  However, TFC's
liquidity has been sufficient to pay dividends to TXT in excess of
capital contributions. TFC has also repaid much of the
intercompany loans during 2012 previously borrowed from TXT.
Fitch expects future support for TXT, net of dividends, to be
minimal although loans may be required temporarily in 2013 to help
fund TFC's scheduled debt maturities.

TFC's non-captive portfolio was less than $500 million at Sept.
30, 2012.  Fitch views positively the progress TFC has made in
liquidating the non-captive portfolio, but believes risks remain.
Asset quality for the first nine months of 2012 improved as non-
accrual finance receivables declined 55% from Dec. 31, 2011.
However, golf mortgage receivables, which typically have 20+ year
maturities, continue to account for the largest portion of the
portfolio.

Cash collections on liquidated receivables have supported a
reduction in debt.  However, if cash generated from the
liquidation of TFC's non-captive portfolio is less than expected
as a result of higher credit losses or discounting, TXT would need
to provide further support to TFC.  TFC's leverage was 3.4x at
Sept. 30, 2012, as estimated by Fitch, compared to 4.5x at the end
of 2011 and 4.8x at the end of 2010.

Fitch believes the amount and timing of some of TFC's debt
maturities and asset liquidations in 2013 could be mismatched and
expects TFC may borrow against the intercompany facility to repay
a portion of its 2013 debt maturities.  However, Fitch expects the
impact on TXT will be limited as TXT has sufficient cash balances
and operating cash flow to support TFC at its current size.
Fitch's concerns about liquidity should decline as the non-captive
portfolio shrinks further.

TFC's captive portfolio totaled $1.7 billion at Sept. 30, 2012,
and consisted primarily of aviation receivables.  Non-accrual
accounts were 5.5% of total captive receivables at Sept. 30, 2012
compared to 7.0% at the end of fiscal 2011.  Although the level of
non-accrual accounts is relatively high, potential concerns about
credit quality in the captive portfolio are mitigated by an
improving trend in the level of accruals and TFC's expertise
managing aviation receivables.

Fitch could take a positive rating action if Cessna's business jet
market improves materially, TXT adjusts effectively to lower
defense-related revenue at Bell and Textron Systems, net pension
liabilities are reduced, and TFC continues to liquidate the non-
captive portfolio successfully.  Also, the repayment of
approximately $500 million of near-term debt maturities in 2013
would further reduce leverage and support a positive rating
action.  The ratings could be negatively affected if TFC requires
material support from TXT in excess of temporary support
anticipated by Fitch during 2013, revenue and margins at the
manufacturing businesses are impaired by an economic downturn, or
spending for acquisitions or other discretionary uses
significantly reduces TXT's liquidity.

TFC's ratings are equalized with TXT's ratings as Fitch believes
TFC is a core subsidiary to its parent as illustrated through a
support agreement and other factors.  The support agreement
requires TXT to maintain full ownership, minimum net worth of $200
million and fixed-charge coverage of 1.25x.  Other factors
supporting the rating linkage include a shared corporate identity,
common management, and the extension of intercompany loans to TFC.

Fitch has affirmed the ratings for TXT and TFC as follows:

TXT

  -- IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured bank facilities at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BBB-';
  -- Short-term IDR at 'F3';
  -- Commercial paper at 'F3'.

TFC

  -- IDR at 'BBB-';
  -- Senior unsecured debt at 'BBB-';
  -- Junior subordinated notes at 'BB'.

Approximately $4.1 billion of debt outstanding at Sept. 30, 2012
is affected by the ratings, including nearly $2.4 billion at TXT
and $1.7 billion at TFC.

Rating Credit Derivative Product Companies" published in March
2006, and "Moody's Approach to Rating Corporate Collateralized
Synthetic Obligations" published in September 2009.


TOKLAN OIL: Has 23% Plan for Unsecured Creditors
------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Toklan Oil & Gas Corp. scheduled a Dec. 13
confirmation hearing for approval of a reorganization plan
estimated to pay unsecured creditors 23 cents on the dollar toward
their $29.5 million in claims.

According to the report, the bankruptcy judge in Tulsa, Oklahoma,
conducted an auction this month for the right to buy the company
through the plan.  The opening bid of less than $6.1 million
increased to $13.1 million until Rampart Holdings Inc. was
declared the winner.

The report relates that the sale is sufficient for full payment of
the $3.9 million secured claim owing to Bank of Oklahoma. There is
a $2.4 million tax claim that must be paid in full as a result of
the sale of assets before the Chapter 11 filing.

The disclosure statement approved last week by the bankruptcy
court contains an estimate that $6.78 million will remain for
distribution to unsecured creditors.

                         About Toklan Oil

Toklan Oil & Gas, an oil and gas producer, was started as Duncan
Corp. in October 1960 and also was named Cobb Oil and Gas Co.  The
Cobb family owns the company, which employs 10 people and
generated $7.7 million in revenue last year from its wells and
properties, which are mainly in Oklahoma and Texas.

Toklan Oil filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D. Okla. Case No.
12-11916) on July 13, 2012, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  The formal list
of assets and debt shows property with a value of $6.1 million and
liabilities totaling $30.8 million, including $3.8 million in
secured debt.


TRINITY COAL: Auctions Off Fleet of Industrial Equipment
--------------------------------------------------------
Kris Maher, writing for The Wall Street Journal, reports mining
company Trinity Coal Corp. put up on the block one of the largest
fleets of equipment ever offered at auction.  The report says the
auction, held Sept. 27, was run by Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers Inc.,
which specializes in industrial equipment.

According to the report, Trinity Coal, a West Virginia company, is
in the midst of a restructuring that it hopes will keep it out of
bankruptcy court.  Earlier this year, the company closed its
Kentucky operations after losing its largest contract with a
utility, and it has since seen demand from other customers fall
off.

"It was a very burdensome amount of equipment to maintain," said
David Stetson, chief restructuring officer for Trinity, the report
relates.  Mr. Stetson said the company, which is owned by India-
based Essar Group, plans to focus on higher-margin grades of
metallurgical coal that are sold to steelmakers.


TW & CO: Owes $3 Million to IRS, Judge Hears
--------------------------------------------
Brian Mahoney at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the Internal
Revenue Service on Thursday told a Maryland bankruptcy judge that
TW & Co. Inc. can?t dodge part of its $3 million in employee
benefits and tax liabilities because the company has chosen a
wind-down over a restructuring and therefore does not need extra
funds to continue business operations.

                         About TW & Co.

TW & Co., a provider of security-guard services for the federal
government, filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Md. Case No.
12-17363) on April 18, 2012.  Based in Lanham, Maryland, TW said
customers include the U.S. Army and Air Force, the Department of
Homeland Security and the General Services Administration.  The
Debtor disclosed assets of $7.4 million and debt of $13 million.

Judge Wendelin I. Lipp presides over the case.  James Greenan,
Esq., at McNamee, Hosea, et al., serves as the Debtor's counsel.
The petition was signed by Tanya Walker, president.


W&T OFFSHORE: S&P Retains 'B' Senior Unsecured Debt Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its recovery rating on
W&T Offshore Inc.'s senior unsecured debt to '4', indicating its
expectation of average (30% to 50%) recovery in the event of a
payment default, from '3'. The issue-level rating on W&T's
unsecured debt remains 'B' (same as the corporate credit rating).

"The lower recovery expectation reflects the company's increased
borrowing base and commitment amounts, which were raised in
November 2012 to $725 million from $575 million," S&P said.

"The ratings on Houston-based W&T reflect our assessment of the
company's 'vulnerable' business risk and 'aggressive' financial
risk. The ratings on W&T incorporate the company's participation
in the competitive and highly cyclical oil and gas industry,
geographic concentration in the high-risk offshore Gulf of Mexico,
weak internal reserve replacement measures, and current softness
in natural gas prices. Our ratings also reflect W&T's 'adequate'
liquidity, management's long operating history in the Gulf of
Mexico, current healthy oil prices, and a well-balanced production
mix between crude oil and natural gas," S&P said.

* Argentina Wants 2nd Circ. to Revisit $1.4BB Payout Order
----------------------------------------------------------
Carolina Bolado at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that Argentina asked
the Second Circuit to reconsider its ruling that the country must
pay approximately $1.4 billion to private equity firms and other
investors that opted out of restructuring deals on Argentina's
debt following its 2001 default.


* FHA's $16-Bil. Shortfall Adds Urgency to Mortgage Policy Fight
----------------------------------------------------------------
Evan Weinberger at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the prospect of
an unprecedented government bailout of the Federal Housing
Administration, raised Friday by an audit that revealed a
$16 billion shortfall in the agency's reserves due to mortgage
delinquencies, will lend a new urgency to fights in Washington
over what role the federal government should play in the mortgage
market.

Bankruptcy Law360 relates that even before the real estate bubble
burst, lawmakers and regulators had struggled with how to get more
private money into the mortgage market while maintaining the
government's role in promoting homeownership.


* Moody's Says Liquidity-Stress Index Rises to 4% in November
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Liquidity-Stress Index (LSI) rose to 4.0% at mid-November,
up from 3.6% in October but still near historical lows, Moody's
Investors Service says in its latest edition of SGL Monitor.
November's reading is the highest since March, although the LSI
remains well below its 7.5% long-term average, suggesting that
liquidity problems are neither severe nor widespread among
speculative-grade companies.

Moody's Liquidity-Stress Index falls when corporate liquidity
appears to improve and rises when it appears to weaken.

"Companies have generally been able to resolve liquidity issues
before they become too severe," says Vice President -- Senior
Credit Officer John Puchalla. "But a number of factors could
reduce corporate revenues and access to credit, including
contagion from the European debt crisis, continued slow global
economic growth and the combination of US tax increases and
spending cuts due to begin in the US in January."

November's low LSI is consistent with Moody's expectation that the
US speculative-grade default rate will decline over the coming
year, then inch up to 3.0% in October 2013.

Liquidity rating downgrades among speculative-grade companies (6)
have outpaced upgrades (5) so far in November, with the uptick in
the LSI reflecting the downgrade of API Technologies and Cengage
Learning due to anticipated lower earnings and tighter covenants
at those companies.

While the shift is not dramatic, the liquidity of new issuers has
weakened in recent months owing in part to weaker internal
resources, Puchalla says. "Recent very strong high-yield bond
issuance might be attracting companies with more questionable
cash-flow profiles, which could spell trouble down the road as
these companies begin to season."

The average speculative-grade liquidity ratings for companies that
were assigned them over the past two months were up over the prior
six months, and were the weakest readings since December 2011.

Moody's Covenant-Stress Index held steady at 2.2% in October,
unchanged from September. The index measures the extent to which
speculative-grade companies are at risk of violating debt
covenants, and declines when headroom under covenants appears to
increase.  October's low reading suggests that the vast majority
of speculative-grade companies continue to have adequate cushion
under their covenants.


* Bond Issuances Provide Liquidity for Junk Companies
-----------------------------------------------------

weakened in recent months owing in part to weaker internal
resources, Mr. Puchalla says.  "Recent very strong high-yield bond
issuance might be attracting companies with more questionable
cash-flow profiles, which could spell trouble down the road as
these companies begin to season."

The average speculative-grade liquidity ratings for companies that
were assigned them over the past two months were up over the prior
six months, and were the weakest readings since December 2011.

Moody's Covenant-Stress Index held steady at 2.2% in October,
unchanged from September.  The index measures the extent to which
speculative-grade companies are at risk of violating debt
covenants, and declines when headroom under covenants appears to
increase.  October's low reading suggests that the vast majority
of speculative-grade companies continue to have adequate cushion
under their covenants.


* Railroad Retirement Income Payable to Creditors
-------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that an annuity under the Railroad Retirement Act is
included in the calculation of "projected disposable income" that
determines how much an individual must pay creditors in a Chapter
13 plan, according to a ruling last week from the U.S. Court of
Appeals in San Francisco.

The report relates that the controversy surrounded a provision in
the RRA which says that an annuity can't be taxed, garnished or
attached and payment can't be "anticipated."  The bankrupt took
the word "anticipated" to mean that the annuity shouldn't be
included in the calculation of future disposable income. The
appeals court in San Francisco disagreed in an opinion by Circuit
Judge Paul J. Watford.

According to the report, Judge Watford said that the term is taken
from trust law, meaning that a beneficiary can't receive payment
ahead of schedule.  Simply counting annuity income thus isn't
anticipation, he said.  The appeals court found a right to appeal
even though the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel had remanded the case
to the bankruptcy court for recalculation of disposable income.

The circuit court, the report notes, said that the flexible
standard for bankruptcy appeals came into play because the case
involved a purely legal issue that would "materially aid the
bankruptcy court in its disposition on remand."

The case is Meyer v. U.S. Trustee (In re Scholz), 9th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals (San Francisco).


* House Panel Pushes SEC-CFTC Merger
------------------------------------
Brian Mahoney at Bankruptcy Law360 reports that the U.S. Commodity
Futures Trading Commission and the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission should consider merging as one regulatory agency after
a failure in communication between the agencies contributed to the
downfall of the broker-dealer MF Global Inc., a report released by
House Republicans said on Thursday.

The SEC and the CFTC failed to share critical information about MF
Global before the firm's October 2011 collapse and could have
saved some investor funds if the agencies had worked together,
according to a 99-page critique of MF, Bankruptcy Law360 relates.

                            *********

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers"
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR.  Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com/

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

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

For copies of court documents filed in the District of Delaware,
please contact Vito at Parcels, Inc., at 302-658-9911.  For
bankruptcy documents filed in cases pending outside the District
of Delaware, contact Ken Troubh at Nationwide Research &
Consulting at 207/791-2852.
