2020 MCGOWAN: TX RE Buying Houston Property for $925K
-----------------------------------------------------
2020 McGowan, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Texas to authorize the sale of Lots 13 through 17,
inclusive, of Block One Viewpoint Square Replat No. 2, a
subdivision in Harris County, Texas, according to the map or plat
thereof recorded in Film Code No. 674645 of the Map Records of
Harris County, Texas, also known as 2020 McGowen St. Units T, U, V,
W Houston, Harris County, Texas, to TX RE Opportunity Fund, LLC for
$925,000.

Objections, if any, must be filed within 21 days of the date the
Motion was served.

The Debtor owns and is in the process of improving real estate.  It
currently owns three separate contiguous tracts of land, with each
tract comprised of multiple lots.  It is currently constructing
single family homes/townhomes on each tract, with the homes on each
tract at different stages of completion.  Stallion Funding, LLC,
asserts a separate lien on each of the three tracts.  

The Debtor has received an offer from the Purchaser to purchase on
tract, with its improvements, as is at the current state of
construction.  It believes that the offer is reasonable, at or near
the market price for the units, and is asking permission to sell
the units free and clear of all claims and interests.  The
Purchaser has offered to buy the Property, as is, for a price of
$925,000.  The sale of the Property is governed by the proposed
Agreement.

The Debtor will pay for the title policy, the survey, deed
recording fees, and one-half of fees charged by the title company.
The Purchaser will pay for any mortgagee title policy (if
necessary), plus any additional premiums for other endorsements,
and one-half of the fees charged by the Title Company.  Each party
will be responsible for their own cost of counsel.

A copy of the Agreement attached to the Motion is available for
free at:

            http://bankrupt.com/misc/2020_McGowen_53_Sales.pdf

Stallion asserts a lien on the Property.  The Debtor is asking the
sale be free and clear of liens, with any interest that Stallion
has in the Property attaching to the proceeds of the sale.

The Debtor asks emergency consideration of the Motion.  The
Purchaser and the Debtor ask an immediate closing date (on or
before Dec. 28, 2017), and the Purchase and Sale Agreement requires
Court approval.

The proposed sale will result in $925,000 in gross proceeds.
Currently, it is unknown what the claimed outstanding amount of the
claim of Stallion is.  Based upon the condition and the stage of
construction of the lots, the Debtor believes the sale to be the
best and highest available use of the assets at this time.  As
such, the sale is in the best interest of the estate.

The Debtor further asks that the stay otherwise imposed by Fed. R.
Bankr. P. 6004(g) be waived so that the sale may proceed and close
immediately.

23 FARMS LLC: To Pay Unsecured Creditors $25K with No Interest
--------------------------------------------------------------
23 Farms, LLC, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Florida a disclosure statement to accompany
its proposed plan of reorganization.

Class 11 under the plan consists of the unsecured creditors.  Based
on the Debtor's values of the various items of collateral outlined
in classes 4 to 10, and including all other unsecured claims, total
estimate unsecured claims will be approximately $5,123,424.17.  The
Plan provides for the Debtor to pay a total of $25,000 with no
interest to unsecured creditors on a pro rata basis and that these
payments will be made either within 30 days following the Effective
Date of the Plan or within 30 days of the closing on the loan which
will fund the Plan, whichever date is later. This class is
impaired.

The Debtor's plan does not rely on the feasibility of the Debtor's
farming operations to pay creditors. The plan proposes to pay
creditors by obtaining a bank loan from Lafayette Bank in the
approximate amount of $2,500,000.

ASSOCIATED THORACIC: Amends Plan to Disclose Univest Stipulation
----------------------------------------------------------------
Associated Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgeons, Ltd., and Herman
Pang filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Arizona a first amended joint disclosure statement in support of
their proposed plan of reorganization.

This latest filing provides that the Debtors filed a Stipulation
for Claim Treatment with Univest Capital, Inc. regarding Univest's
claim secured by ATCS' D-Actor 100 Ultra. ATCS reflected Univest's
Claim at $24,663.85 in its Schedules and the parties agree that
this is the total amount of Univest's Claim as of the Petition
Date. Pursuant to the Stipulation, ATCS asserts and the parties
agree that the value of the Shockwave is $15,000 and also will be
the value of Univest's secured claim as of the Petition Date as to
the Shockwave for purposes of the Stipulation and the Debtors'
Joint Plan of Reorganization. Univest will retain its first
position lien on the Shockwave until its Allowed Secured Claim is
paid. Univest's Allowed Secured Claim will be reamortized as of the
Petition Date and paid in monthly payments of $486.15 from and
after the Petition Date, with interest at 4.5%, until its Allowed
Secured Claim has been paid. ATCS estimates that the final payment
will be paid on March 12, 2020. ATCS has paid these monthly
payments for most months since the Petition Date and will bring
these payments current once the Court approves this Stipulation.

ATCS may prepay the Allowed Secured Claim without penalty at any
time. Univest will release its lien on the Shockwave once its
Allowed Secured Claim has been paid or refinanced. ATCS may sell or
refinance the Shockwave at any time without penalty in the ordinary
course of its business and Univest will release its lien on the
collateral being sold or refinanced, so long as the net proceeds
are used to pay down Univest's Allowed Secured Claim. The balance
of Univest's Claim of $9,663.85 will be allowed in full and treated
as a general unsecured claim in the Debtors' Joint Plan of
Reorganization, and any subsequent amendments, supplements and/or
modifications. Univest's Allowed Unsecured Claim will be paid
pro-rata with any other unsecured creditors and the parties
acknowledge that the payments to unsecured creditors will likely be
nominal at best.

Objections, if any, must be filed within 21 days after the date of
the filing of the Motion.

The Debtors intend to liquidate a portion of the real estate, as
part of these chapter 11 proceedings, which efforts are expected to
result in returns to creditors at a higher rate than dismissal or
conversion.  Moreover, due to the need for speed in liquidating
certain real estate which is currently burdensome to the estate, a
sale under 11 U.S.C. Section 363 is preferred over a sale pursuant
to a chapter 11 plan.

The Debtors and the Buyers have entered into the Real Estate
Contract for the Robinson Real Property, with addendums, for the
sale and purchase of the Property.  The sale is on a strictly "as
is, where is" basis with no warranties being extended except as to
title; and free and clear of all liens, claims, encumbrances,
obligations, liabilities, contractual commitments or interests of
any kind
or nature whatsoever.

A copy of the Contract attached to the Motion is available for free
at:

paid to:

sale of the Real Property;

     b. The 2016 real estate taxes will be paid in full by the
Purchasers;

paid to the first lienholder, First Security Bank, and the balance
will be paid to the Debtors to be deposited into their DIP account
to pay outstanding administrative expenses, including approved
attorneys' fees for the Debtors' counsel.

The sale of the Property is in the best interest of the Debtors and
their creditors.

               About Cascade Acceptance Corporation

Mill Valley, California-based Cascade Acceptance Corporation filed
for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. N.D. Calif. Case No.
09-13960) on Nov. 23, 2009. At the time of the filing, the Debtor
estimated $50 million to $100 million in assets and debts. Douglas
B. Provencher, Esq., at the Law Offices of Provencher and Flatt,
assisted the Debtor in its restructuring effort.

In February 2010, Cascade Acceptance filed with the Court a
bankruptcy-exit plan that provides for the reorganization of the
Debtor and payment or provision for all of the Debtor's creditors.
The Plan also provides for the disposition of the Debtor's assets.
The Debtor proposed to pay all creditors in full over a period of
six years.  The Debtor failed to obtain confirmation of the Plan
and on July 12, 2010, Judge Alan Jaroslovsky converted the Chapter
11 case to one under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.  Timothy W.
Hoffman was appointed Chapter 7 trustee at the time of the
conversion.

Post-conversion, a Chapter 7 creditors committee was appointed by
the Office of the U.S. Trustee.

On November 21, 2017, the case was converted back to Chapter 11.
Mr. Hoffman was appointed Chapter 11 trustee.


CASTEX ENERGY: Unsecureds to be Paid from General Equity Pool
-------------------------------------------------------------
Castex Energy Partners, L.P., and its affiliates filed with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas a first
amended disclosure statement for their joint chapter 11 plan of
reorganization dated Dec. 15, 2017.

The Restructuring proposed by the Debtors will provide substantial
benefits to the Debtors and all of their stakeholders, including,
without limitation, the following:

   * The Restructuring will leave the Debtors' business intact and
substantially de-levered, providing for the reduction of a
substantial amount of debt, resulting in a restructured balance
sheet through the issuance of the New Equity Interests to each
Holder of an Allowed RBL Secured Claim.

   * The Debtors significantly improved balance sheet will enable
the Reorganized Debtors to pursue value-creating development and
exploration, maintain current reserves, and accelerate drilling
activity. The proposed Restructuring includes a Management
Incentive Plan to help ensure that management personnel remains
committed to the future of the Reorganized Debtors. The
continuation of the Debtors' business, including the ability to
participate in future exploration activities will provide benefit
by way of maintaining contractual relationships among working
interest owners; continued participation by the Debtors in funding
their portion of operating and development costs for drilling,
exploration, and production operations; continued compliance with
decommissioning and plugging and abandonment obligations to state
and federal regulatory authorities; and maintaining customary terms
with vendors and other current creditors and counterparties.

Class 4, General Unsecured Claims, is impaired under the plan. Each
Holder of an Allowed General Unsecured Claim will receive its Pro
Rata share of the General Equity Pool, which distribution of New
Equity Interests will be made in accordance with Article 8.8 of the
Plan; provided, however, that if each Class of General Unsecured
Claims accepts the Plan, the distribution of New Equity Interests
to the DIP Lenders and to the Holders of RBL Secured Claims will
not be subject to dilution by the General Equity Pool and each
Prepetition Lender voting to accept the Plan and not electing to
opt out of the releases set forth in the Plan will waive any
recovery or distribution on account of its Allowed RBL Deficiency
Claim for the benefit of Holders of other Allowed General Unsecured
Claims such that each Beneficiary Claimant will not receive any
distribution on account of its Allowed General Unsecured Claim
other than Cash in an amount equal to the lesser of the Allowed
amount of its General Unsecured Claim and its Pro Rata share of the
General Unsecured Claims Cash Distribution, which distribution of
Cash will be made in accordance with Article 8.8 of the Plan.

The Debtors will fund Plan Distributions with cash on hand; cash
generated from the Reorganized Debtors' operations; the proceeds of
the Exit Credit Agreement; and the New Equity Interests.

COOLWATER ESTATES: Rodriguezes Buying Forney Property for $120K
---------------------------------------------------------------
Coolwater Estates, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas to authorize the sale of the lot
identified as 12085 Coolwater Circle, Forney, Texas, consisting of
3.36 acres, to Mark Rodriguez and Matt Rodriguez for $120,000.

The Debtor owns 72.79 acres of real property in Forney, Texas.  The
property has been developed to sell to potential buyers in
subdivided lots to be used to build single family residences.  The
Debtor has received an offer to sell a single lot out of the 72.79
acres.  The Debtor received offer from the Buyers to purchase the
Real Property.  

Under the terms sale set forth in the contract, the realtors are to
receive a commission of 6%.  A 3% commission is to be paid to the
realtor for the Buyers.  That realtor's name is Johnathan
Finkenbiner with offices at 1417 Fairfield, Forney, Texas.  Upon
information and belief, Mr. Finkenbiner has no connection to the
Debtor, its principals or its creditors other than serving as the
agent for the Buyers.

The Debtor asks authority to sell the Real Property on these
terms:

     a. Property to be sold: Real Property

     b. Purchasers: Mark Rodriguez and Matt Rodriguez

     c. Price: $120,000

     d. Terms: Cash to Seller

     e. Release of Liens: The sale is free and clear of all liens
and encumbrances.

A copy of the Contract attached to the Motion is available for free
at:

      http://bankrupt.com/misc/Coolwater_Estate_23_Sales.pdf

The following parties assert security interests and/or liens upon
the Real Property: Kaufman County Tax Office and Southwest Bank.
Southwest Bank holds a lien against the full 72.79 acres.  Although
there is substantial equity in the full 72.79 acres, the sale
proceeds from the sale will not pay off the bank debt in full.
Accordingly, there is no equity in the Real Property being sold
through the Motion above the amount of the Secured Creditors'
liens.

From the gross proceeds, and prior to making payment to the
respective Secured Creditors, the Debtor will pay: (i) applicable
real estate agent commissions; (ii) closing costs; (iii) the ad
valorem property taxes associated with the Real Property; (iv) U.S.
Trustee Quarterly Fees and bank fees associated with the sale; and
(v) the attorney’s fees incurred by the Debtor's counsel
associated with the sale and conveyance of title to the Buyers.

The Debtor anticipates the quarterly fee to be paid to the U.S.
Trustee will increase to $975 due to the disbursement of the sale
proceeds and will incur approximately $3,500 in attorney fees
handling the sale through the bankruptcy court.

The liens that secure amounts owed for year 2018 ad valorem
property taxes, including any penalties and interest that may
accrue, will remain attached to the Real Property and become the
responsibility of the Buyers.  Any remaining 2017 property taxes
will be paid at closing.

Any party interested in purchasing the Real Property should contact
the counsel for the Debtor, object to the Motion and appear at any
hearing on the Motion and offer an amount in excess of the proposed
purchase price.

Finally, due to exigent circumstances relating to the need to close
the sale so as to stop the accrual of property taxes, the Debtor
asks that any order approving the Motion exclude the 14-day stay
provided in Rule 6004(h) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy
Procedure.

FIVE A TRADING: Wants Authority to Access Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------
Five A Trading, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Georgia for authority to use cash collateral
in which Civis Bank or Imperial Trading asserts a security
interest.

The Debtor has an immediate need to use cash collateral for the
purpose of meeting necessary expenses incurred in the ordinary
course of its business, including:

      (a) covering any post-petition payroll and payroll taxes of
its management and employees;

      (b) payment of excise taxes or other taxes incurred in the
ordinary course of Debtor's business;

      (c) ordering inventory to be sold to Debtor's customers;

      (d) payment of utilities and other normal operating expenses;


      (e) payment of quarterly fees owed to the Office of the U.S.
Trustee during this case,

      (f) funding Debtor's reorganization in this Chapter 11 Case;
and

      (g) paying any and all other expenses set forth in the
budget.

Civis Bank, formerly known as The Citizens Bank of Tennessee, is a
first in priority, secured creditor of Debtor.  Civis Bank asserts
a secured claim in the amount of $1,148,500 against all of the
Debtor's goods, equipment, inventory, accounts, accounts
receivable, chattel paper, proceeds, products and after acquired
property.

Imperial Trading Co., LLC, is a second in priority, secured
creditor of the Debtor.  Imperial Trading's secured claim in the
amount of $ of $6,601 is secured by all of the Debtor's equipment,
inventory furnished by Imperial, proceeds, accounts and all
proceeds.

The Debtor proposes to tender, during the six-month period
immediately after the Petition Date, prepetition payment to
Imperial Trading for its prepetition claim in the amount of $6,601
in a single lump sum.  However, the Debtor believed that it had
tendered prepetition payment to Imperial Trading for its
prepetition claim because the controller for Imperial Trading has
indicated that Debtor's account balance as Dec. 13, 2017 was zero.

Given that Civis Bank and Imperial Trading may possess liens
encumbering all, or substantially all, of Debtor's assets, and, the
prepetition secured claims of these two creditors potentially
exceed the value of the prepetition estate, the Debtor proposes to
grant Civis Bank and Imperial Trading replacement security
interests and liens on all postpetition assets, having the same
respective priority as their prepetition liens to secure any
post-petition diminution in value of cash collateral.

The Debtor or its Co-Debtor, Five A DeKalb Investment, LLC, will
continue to make monthly principal and interest payments to Civis
Bank in the amount of $8,694 per month.

The Debtor also proposes that the cash collateral now existing and
hereinafter acquired will be protected by Debtor's use of
post-petition debtor-in-possession bank accounts, pending
disbursement in the ordinary course of business of the Debtor and
consistent with the provisions of the Motion and the Proposed
Interim Order and the Budget.

The Debtor will also promptly and within a reasonable time open DIP
Accounts, have all credit card payments be deposited in the DIP
Accounts, transfer all funds from any prepetition accounts to the
DIP Accounts, and close the pre-petition accounts.

GASPARI NUTRITION: Settles ThermoLife False Advertising Claims
--------------------------------------------------------------
ThermoLife International, LLC, on Dec. 27, 2017, disclosed that it
reached a favorable settlement of its claims against the
now-bankrupt Gaspari Nutrition, Inc.

From 2005 to 2010, Gaspari Nutrition advertised its
testosterone–boosting products as "safe," "natural" and "legal."
But in a 2010 press release, the FDA announced that "products
containing aromatase inhibitors [like Gaspari Nutrition's products]
have a reasonable probability of resulting in permanent impairment
of a body structure or function in at risk consumers."

Relying on the FDA's position and on the opinions of experts in the
industry who testified that Gaspari Nutrition's products were not
safe, ThermoLife sued Gaspari Nutrition in the U.S. District Court
for the District of Arizona in 2011.  ThermoLife's lawsuit asserted
that Gaspari Nutrition's false advertising resulted in competitive
injuries to ThermoLife.

For over six years, ThermoLife vigorously litigated these claims,
seeking to hold Gaspari Nutrition liable for selling steroids and
other drugs as dietary supplements.  The legal battle included a
precedent-setting victory by ThermoLife in the U.S. Court of
Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Justice for ThermoLife was delayed further when Gaspari Nutrition
was forced to declare bankruptcy in 2014.  However, on Nov. 21,
2017, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey
approved ThermoLife's settlement with the bankrupt Gaspari
Nutrition.

ThermoLife's claims that Gaspari Nutrition spiked its products with
steroids and other drugs were unopposed and the current settlement
awards ThermoLife $415,000, making ThermoLife the recipient of the
largest single payout to any unsecured creditor of the now bankrupt
Gaspari Nutrition.  ThermoLife will also receive back $40,000 in
costs from the Arizona District Court as a result of this
settlement.

ThermoLife's founder, Ron Kramer, offered the following statement
regarding the award: "It has been a long time coming, but I have
always remained confident that when the facts were presented the
legal system would hold Gaspari Nutrition responsible for
intentionally spiking products with drugs and for its lies to the
public about its products.  The award should serve as a wake-up
call to companies that mislead consumers and sell products spiked
with drugs thinking that the FDA is too busy to catch them.   As we
have recently seen, justice can be severe against the wrongdoers.
Gaspari Nutrition's new co-owner, Jared Wheat, was recently
indicted by the FDA on 18 felony counts related to dietary
supplements and if convicted he can spend decades in prison."

ThermoLife is represented in the matter by Gregory B. Collins of
Kercsmar & Feltus PLLC.

GLOBAL A&T: Noteholders Consent to Cash Use
-------------------------------------------
Global A&T Electronics Ltd. and its affiliates seek authorization
from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New
York to use cash collateral on an interim basis pending a final
hearing on their Motion.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors' funded debt is comprised of
approximately $1.127 billion in aggregate principal amount of the
10% senior secured notes due 2019 ("Prepetition Notes").  The
Prepetition Notes were issued under that certain Indenture, by and
among Global A&T Electronics Ltd. ("GATE"), as issuer, the Debtors
UTAC Headquarters Pte. Ltd., UTAC Hong Kong Limited, United Test
and Assembly Center Ltd., UTAC Cayman Ltd., UTAC Thai Holdings
Limited, UTAC Thai Limited, and UTAC (Taiwan) Corporation, as
guarantors, and Citicorp International Limited, as indenture
trustee and security agent.

In February 2013, GATE initially issued $625 million of Prepetition
Notes. On September 20, 2013, GATE supplemented the Indenture and
issued $502,257,000 of additional Prepetition Notes ("Additional
Notes") in exchange for their pre-existing second lien notes as
part of an out-of-court exchange transaction.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors' cash on hand totaled
approximately $89.7 million, but substantially all of which is cash
collateral of the Prepetition Noteholders.  Because the Debtors do
not believe that they can provide adequate protection to the
Prepetition Noteholders, the Debtors engaged with the Prepetition
Noteholders regarding the terms on which they would consent to
permit the Debtors to continue to use Cash Collateral as part of
their negotiations regarding the Restructuring Support Agreement.

Consequently, the Prepetition Noteholders have consented to the
Debtors' use of cash collateral pursuant to the Restructuring
Support Agreement, which has the support of holders of
approximately 97% of the Initial Notes and holders of approximately
98% of the Additional Notes.

The adequate protection package provided to the Initial Secured
Parties includes:

     (a) the adequate protection liens, including a first priority
lien on and security interest in unencumbered property, a junior
lien on all encumbered property that is not Prepetition Collateral,
and a priming lien on and security interest in all Prepetition
Collateral;

     (b) a superpriority administrative expense claim pursuant to
section 507(b) of the Bankruptcy Code; and

     (c) payment of the reasonable and documented fees and
disbursements incurred by the professionals retained by the
Indenture Trustee, the Milbank Initial Noteholder Ad Hoc Group, and
the Dechert Initial Noteholder Ad Hoc Group.

Likewise, the adequate protection package provided to the
Additional Secured Parties includes:

     (a) the adequate protection liens, including a first priority
lien on and security interest in unencumbered property, a junior
lien on all encumbered property that is not Prepetition Collateral,
and a priming lien on and security interest in all Prepetition
Collateral;

     (b) a superpriority administrative expense claim pursuant to
section 507(b) of the Bankruptcy Code; and

     (c) payment of the reasonable and documented fees and
disbursements incurred by the professionals retained by the
Indenture Trustee and the Additional Noteholder Ad Hoc Group.

possesses pursuant to the Loan Documents.

     (b) If and to the extent the collateral used by the Debtor
less any reduction in the pre-petition portion of the Claim from
payments due under the Budget exceeds the value of the
post-petition collateral, then Phoenix REO will have a claim in the
amount of such Post-petition Shortfall which will have priority
over all other claims entitled to priority under Section 507(a)(1),
with the sole exception of quarterly fees due to the U.S. Trustee.

     (c) The Debtor will maintain all necessary insurance, and
obtain such additional insurance in an amount as is appropriate for
the business in which the Debtor is engaged, naming Phoenix REO as
loss payee, additional insured, and mortgagee with respect thereto.

coverage, as well as prompt notification of any change in such
coverage which may hereafter occur.

     (d) Phoenix REO will have the right to inspect the Collateral
and the Mortgaged Property, as well as the Debtor’s books and
records during normal business hours.

     (e) The Debtor will pay any and all taxes, municipal charges,

have priority over Phoenix REO's security interest in the
Collateral under applicable law.

     (f) The Debtor will maintain the Collateral in good condition
and will not permit waste to occur with respect to the Collateral.


     (g) As further adequate protection of Phoenix REO's interest

(which payments will be subject to reallocation by the Court).

     A. March 31, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.;

     B. The Debtor's failure to maintain all necessary insurance;
or

     C. At Phoenix REO's option, upon the occurrence of any one or
more of the following:

       (a) The breach by the Debtor of any of the terms,
conditions, or covenants of the Order;

       (b) The Debtor's failure to file a motion with the Court on
or before Jan. 10, 2018 in a form reasonably acceptable to Phoenix

JACKSON RENTAL: State Bank Seeks to Ban Use of Cash Collateral
--------------------------------------------------------------
State Bank & Trust Company asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Mississippi to prohibit Jackson Rental
Properties, Inc., and Willie Jackson from using its cash collateral
and require them to deliver any cash collateral to State Bank.

State Bank further asks the Court to require each of the Debtors to
provide an accounting (within 30 days of entry of said order) of
all cash collateral received by both Jackson Rental and Willie
Jackson and/or its insiders and/or affiliates since the filing
date.  Alternatively, State Bank requests adequate protection of
its interests in the cash collateral as required by Section
363(e).

State Bank claims that Jackson Rental executed a Promissory Note 1
in favor of State Bank in the principal amount of $212,327, secured
by a Deeds of Trust on the Apartment Complex and Land located at
800 Shamrock Drive, Cleveland, Mississippi, and a Deed of Trust on
Apartment Complex and Land located at 803 North Street, Cleveland,
Mississippi.  State Bank has a second lien on the Shamrock Property
and a first lien on the Royal Heights Property. Willie Jackson
personally guaranteed the obligations of Jackson Rental under Note
1.

On April 5, 2016, Jackson Rental executed a Promissory Note in
favor of State Bank in the principal amount of $4,598, which is
secured by, among other things, inventory, equipment, accounts, and
cash. Willie Jackson has also personally guaranteed the obligations
of Jackson Rental under Note 2.

The current balance due on Note 1 is $272,411 with interest
accruing at $44.55849 per diem, and the current balance due on Note
2 is $164.05 with interest accruing at $.01843 per diem, together
with late charges and additional interest on each of the notes, and
all costs of collection including attorney's fees and expenses.

State Bank asserts that there may be little or no equity in the
Collateral. State Bank points out that in Jackson Rental's Amended
Schedules A/B, the Shamrock Property is valued at $220,000 and the
Royal Heights Property is valued at $225,000.  State Bank's most
recent appraisal of the Royal Heights Property is for $260,000,
which amount does not include the Equipment or the Rents.  State
Bank does not have an appraisal on the Shamrock Property which has
been condemned.

State Bank claims that it lacks adequate protection of its interest
in the collateral, and ad valorem taxes are past due.
Additionally, Willie Jackson has failed to pay federal taxes since
2014, as well as his state taxes for 2016.

Moreover, State Bank believes that rents collected from various
properties run by Willie Jackson are commingled, and expenses
associated with a particular property are not funded strictly from
Rents from the property. State Bank complains that the Debtors do
not have an adequate accounting system in place to protect State
Bank's interest in the Rents.

Finally, the U.S. Trustee has recently filed a Motion to Convert or
Dismiss Jackson Rental's case for failure to satisfy numerous
requirements under the Code. The collateral is burdensome and/or of
inconsequential value to the estate. Accordingly, Jackson Rental
should be required to abandon the Collateral from the estate.

State Bank tells the Court that it has attempted to resolve these
issues by agreement but the Debtors failed to provide sufficient
responses to State Bank's concerns and requests for information.

JONESBORO HOSPITALITY: Sale of Arkansas Hotel to Fund Ciena Plan
----------------------------------------------------------------
Ciena Capital Funding, LLC, as Servicer for Bank of New York Mellon
Trust Company, N.A., f/k/a The Bank of New York Trust Company,
N.A., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District
of Texas a combined plan of liquidation and disclosure statement
for Jonesboro Hospitality, LLC.

Jonesboro has essentially only one asset, a hotel and its contents,
located at 3006 S. Caraway Road, in Jonesboro, Arkansas 72401.
Ciena is owed approximately $2.23 million and holds a first
priority security interest against the Hotel (subject only to real
property taxes) and thus, is Jonesboro's most significant creditor.
Ciena's Plan provides for the sale of the Hotel (and other
Auctioned Property) free and clear of liens to a purchaser with the
proceeds from the sale used to pay closing costs, and any liens on
the Hotel in order of priority so long as funds are available. The
Auctioneer will be the disbursing agent in the sale and related
transactions. The only distributions to the Debtor's creditors will
be from the Net Proceeds of the sale of the Hotel and from the Net
Proceeds Carve Out.

In general, the Plan proposes to pay Jonesboro's creditors to the
extent funds are available from the sale of the Hotel. The purchase
price will be determined by an auction. There will be auction fees,
customary closing costs associated with the sale. Because of the
outstanding property taxes and the amount due to Ciena, there may
not be sufficient funds from the sale to satisfy all of the claims
against Jonesboro, or even the claims of Ciena in full.

To the extent available after satisfying Allowed Secured Claims of
holders of Ad Valorem Tax Claims, the Allowed Secured Claim of
Ciena, the Net Proceeds Carve Out, the Allowed Secured Claims of
holders whose Liens are junior to those of Ciena, and Allowed
Priority Claims, Net Proceeds will be paid to the holders of
Allowed General Unsecured Claims up to the Allowed amount of each
such holder's Claim.

KEVIN DALE DOTY: First Citizens Bank Seeks Appointment of Examiner
------------------------------------------------------------------
First Citizens Bank and Trust Company, Inc., asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas to enter an
order directing the U.S. Trustee to appoint an Examiner, or in the
alternative, to appoint a Trustee for the bankruptcy estate of
Kevin Dale Doty.

The Court has not appointed a committee, trustee, or examiner in
this bankruptcy case, and the Debtor remains in possession of his
prepetition operations, including several businesses -- e.g., Iron
Mountain Lease Management LLC, Insurenet Insurance Services LLC,
and Javelin Energy LLC.

First Citizens Bank's efforts to enforce its Guaranty against the
Debtor (a) started in El Paso County, Colorado; (b) continued in
Dallas County, Texas; (c) continued further in Cameron County,
Texas; and (d) now reach the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Texas, Laredo Division.  Throughout the prior
proceedings and continuing into the pleadings filed by the Debtor
during this Bankruptcy Case, the Debtor has exhibited poor judgment
and potentially dishonest practices.

During the pendency of the Cameron County Proceeding, the Debtor
filed the bankruptcy petition.  The Debtor's schedules immediately
drew the concern of First Citizens Bank for several reasons:

     (a) The Debtor erroneously listed the First Citizens Bank's
claim as an unsecured claim of $3,000,000, ignoring the liens
perfected by First Citizens Bank's Abstract;

     (b) The Debtor lists his gross income before deductions and
exclusions for Jan. 1, 2017 until Aug. 4, 2017 as $13,120, in stark
contrast to the Debtor's 2016 income of $208,522; and

     (c) The Debtor lists several businesses -- the equity of which
is property of the Debtor's estate -- that are non-debtor entities
operated by the Debtor without any reporting provided to the Court.
The Debtor's Schedules also show that the Debtor made potentially
fraudulent transfers to family members within the statute of
limitations for avoiding such transfers.

Moreover, in the short time that the Debtor has served as
debtor-in-possession in this bankruptcy case, the Debtor has moved
to retain: (a) the accounting services of Cris Villarreal PLLC, who
requests a fee of $125 per hour for services rendered; (b) the
services of Moore Land Surveying, LLC, for a flat fee of $3,000
plus any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes; (c)
the legal services of The Law Offices of William B. Kingman, P.C.
at the hourly rate of $350 per hour for Mr. William B. Kingman's
time and at the hourly rate of $110 per hour for the firm's legal
assistant and paralegal time in addition to the $20,075 prepetition
retainer and $5,000 per month post-petition retainer; and (d) the
legal services of The Law Office of Lisa L. Taylor, as special
counsel, for the hourly rate of $300 for attorney time, $200 per
hour for associate attorney time, $90 per hour for paralegal time,
and $50 per hour for legal assistant time.

However, the Debtor has not provided any guidance to the Court or
to the creditors of the estate as to how these several, costly
professional service providers will receive compensation for their
services or benefit the estate in an amount in excess of their
professional fees.

Indeed, the Debtor's prepetition litigation strategy caused
significant concerns for both First Citizens Bank and the District
Court. It seemed that the Debtor willfully avoided routine
obligations attendant to discovery. In fact, the District Court's
frustration with the Debtor led the court to issue an order for the
arrest of the Debtor -- certainly uncommon and noteworthy relief in
the context of a discovery dispute.

The Debtor's pleadings in this case provide ample additional cause
to appoint an examiner here because of significant irregularities
in the Debtor's Schedules, such as questionable income reporting,
mischaracterization of claims, and various business operations
unaccompanied by any reporting of the businesses' interests. A
neutral, unbiased analysis of the Debtor's prepetition conduct and
post-petition accounting efforts will help creditors to maximize a
recovery in this Bankruptcy Case.  This transparency will also help
to prevent any potential for fraud against this Court and the
creditors of the Debtor's estate.

First Citizens Bank notes that the Debtor's Schedules report that
the Debtor engaged in potentially fraudulent transfers prior to
filing the Petition. While the Schedules do not suggest that the
transfers were intentionally fraudulent, those transfers may still
be avoidable as constructively fraudulent transfers. First Citizens
Bank does not believe that the Debtor is likely to bring an action
to avoid and recover these transfers. The appointment of an
examiner may help to determine the merits of a suit to avoid these
transfers and what party is in the best position to bring these
claims on behalf of the estate.

In light of the Debtor's evasive litigation tactics during several
proceedings prior to this bankruptcy case, prepetition insider
transfers and several significant mistakes (whether made
intentionally or not) in the Debtor's pleadings in this bankruptcy
case, First Citizens Bank has no confidence in the Debtor's ability
to effectively prosecute this bankruptcy case. At best, the Debtor
lacks the acumen to bring this bankruptcy case to a favorable
resolution. At worst, the Debtor lacks the integrity to truthfully
interact with the Court and the creditors of the Debtor's estate.

Rather than filing a motion to appoint a trustee or a motion to
dismiss this bankruptcy case, First Citizens Bank identified an
alternative that allow the Debtor to continue in possession of his
assets and operations while protecting the interests of creditors
and the dignity of the bankruptcy process -- First Citizens Bank
asks that the Court appoint an Examiner in this bankruptcy case.

First Citizens Bank asserts that an Examiner could serve one of two
purposes that would be beneficial to the estate and the Debtor:

     A. The examiner could review the Debtor's operations and
pleadings to determine the propriety of appointing a trustee and
provide a recommendation on the issue to the Court; or

     B. The examiner could remain in the employ of the estate for
the duration of the bankruptcy case to review: (a) the accuracy of
the Debtor's reporting; (b) the prudence of the Debtor's actions;
and (c) the operations of the Debtor's multiple business.

As the largest creditor in this bankruptcy case, First Citizens
Bank can attest that its interests will be best served by the
appointment of an Examiner, or in the alternative, a trustee. With
the appointment of an Examiner in this bankruptcy case, First
Citizens Bank believes that creditors can find comfort that an
independent party will review the accuracy of the Debtor's
reporting and the propriety of the Debtor's actions -- this relief
is especially necessary in light of the fact that no official
committee of unsecured creditors has been appointed in this
bankruptcy case.

MAMMOET-STARNETH: Unsecureds to Get 13%-100% Under Liquidation Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mammoet-Starneth, LLC, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware a disclosure statement for its chapter 11 plan
of liquidation dated Dec. 15, 2017.

The Debtor believes that the Plan is in the best interests of
Creditors and the Estate, as it provides for, among other things,
(a) a total contribution of up to approximately $6.6 million, plus
any amounts necessary to fully satisfy unclassified and unimpaired
Claims under the Plan, by MUSA (in the form of (i) the MUSA
Contribution in the total amount of up to approximately $1.1
million plus any amounts necessary to fully satisfy unclassified
and unimpaired Claims under the Plan and (ii) a waiver of MUSA's
DIP Claim in the amount of up to $5.5 million) that would otherwise
be unavailable to the Estate; (b) distribution of proceeds, if any,
of any sale of the Debtor's assets; (c) preservation and assignment
of the New York Wheel Causes of Action, with MUSA funding the costs
of prosecuting any attendant litigation and splitting the net
proceeds from any recovery with certain other creditors; and (d)
treatment of MUSA's prepetition loan and advance claims as being
satisfied by the assignment of the New York Wheel Causes of
Action.

Class 3 under the liquidation plan consists of the general
unsecured claims. This class will receive cash equal to the pro
rata share of any Sale Proceeds in the Chapter 11 Case and (ii) the
General Unsecured Portion of the MUSA Contribution. Projected
recovery for this class is 13%-100%.

All Cash necessary to make payments and distributions under the
Plan will be obtained from Available Cash, any New York Wheel
Proceeds, and any Supplemental Contribution. All Cash necessary to
wind down the Estate after the Effective Date will be provided to
the Debtor by MUSA pursuant to a budget to be agreed to by the
Debtor and MUSA.

MASHANTUCKET PEQUOT: Extends Forbearance Agreement With Lenders
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation ("MPTN"), owner of the
Mashantucket Pequot Gaming Enterprise (MPGE) and Foxwoods Resort
Casino(R), on Dec. 26, 2017, disclosed that it has extended its

maturity date.  Both extensions commenced on December 12, 2017 with
the assistance of Centerview Partners, LLC.

"With the reality of competition expanding throughout the
northeast, Foxwoods continues to add a variety of non-gaming and
family-friendly offerings in preparation for the imminent changes

Term A obligations and extending our Forbearance Agreement, we can
better ensure that our ongoing plans will be compatible with
long-term profitability."


MESABI METALLICS: Exits Chapter 11 Bankruptcy After Plan Confirmed
------------------------------------------------------------------
Mesabi Metallics Company LLC (Mesabi) on Dec. 28, 2017, disclosed
that it has emerged from bankruptcy under the ownership of Chippewa
Capital Partners, LLC (Chippewa).  Mesabi's chapter 11 plan of
reorganization, sponsored by Chippewa, was confirmed by the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware in June 2017 and
became effective December 22, 2017.

Tom Clarke, Chippewa principal, and Mesabi's new Chief Executive
Officer praised the efforts of Governor Dayton, the Minnesota
Department of Natural Resources, and the Itasca County Board of
Commissioners, who worked closely with the Mesabi and Chippewa
teams to achieve last Friday's success.  Chippewa expresses its
appreciation to the northern Minnesota contractors for their
patience and commitment to finish the multi-billion-dollar project.
Chippewa provided the funding for Mesabi to make the deferred
mechanic lienholder payments last Friday, over three years ahead of
schedule.  Mechanic lienholders have now received all of the
payments provided for under the Mesabi plan of reorganization.
Mesabi is working with an international team of experts including
Kiewit, Tenova, and Danieli to complete the 7.0 mmtpa Metso pellet
plant and the 2.0 mmtpa HYL hot briquetted iron/pig iron plant.

Clarke emphasized the project's international collaboration with
equity investors on three continents and pellet sales with a global
reach.  The project is intended to provide substantial employment
and tax benefits to northern Minnesota throughout the construction
period and for decades to come.  The former Magnetation, LLC assets
owned by ERP Iron Ore, LLC (ERPI) will be integrated into the
Mesabi operations providing an additional 3.0 mmtpa of pellet
production through ERPI's Indiana Metso pellet plant.  Minnesota
iron ore from ERPI's mining operations will be used to produce pig
iron in Lorain, Ohio through a joint-venture with Republic Steel.

David Pauker, Mesabi's Chief Restructuring Officer throughout the
chapter 11 case, said, "The bankruptcy raised the very real
prospect of liquidation.  Instead, on emergence from bankruptcy,
contractors and others who worked on the project received 75 cents
on the dollar and lenders received a notional recovery of 30 cents,
including new bonds.  This was only made possible by the State's
willingness to work with creditors and our new investors to avoid a
liquidation, save the Nashwauk project, and ensure creditors
receive a recovery.  I wish Tom Clarke and his team the best of
luck."

MOUNTAIN BLUE: WV Hilton Garden Inn Seeks Cash Access
-----------------------------------------------------
Mountain Blue Hotel Group, LLC, seeks authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia for the
interim use of cash collateral to pay ordinary course operating
expenses including, without limitation, payroll and payment of
insurance and taxes.

The Debtor owns a Hilton Garden Inn in Morgantown, West Virginia.
It has a restaurant and bar, a small market/gift shop and a fitness
center, in addition to 118 Hotel rooms.  The Hotel was constructed
in 2008, and was owned by Emerald Coast Hospitality, LLC.  Emerald
Coast also owned two other hotels, the Country Inn &
Suites-Summersville and the Country Inn & Suites-Elkview, until
2013, when the three hotels were refinanced.

There appears to be little dispute that a number of external
factors beyond the Debtor's control have negatively affected the
value of the Hotel since the Loan was made in September 2013.  The
decline in the Hotel's occupancy rates resulting from these
external factors caused a corresponding decline in revenues, and by
2015-2016, revenues were down by more than a million dollars.

As revenues declined and the corresponding amounts trickling down
to the Debtor, after COMM 2013-CCRE-12 Suncrest Towne Center Drive,
LLC was paid (in full) declined as well, the Debtor was unable to
stay current on the franchise fees owed to Hilton (which averaged
from $30,000 to $50,000 monthly), the sales taxes owed to the State
of West Virginia (which averaged $15,000 to $22,000 monthly), and
the hotel and occupancy taxes owed to Monongalia County (which also
averaged $15,000 to $22,000 monthly).

It was the Debtor's default on these obligations that prompted
Suncrest Towne Center to declare a default under the loan
documents. Suncrest Towne Center Drive has controlled the Debtor's
finances by controlling the distribution of its revenues.  From the
initiation of this loan in September 2013, through May 2017, when
Suncrest Towne Center declared a default under the loan documents,
all of the Debtor's incoming credit card revenues -- which comprise
virtually 98% of the Hotel's overall revenues -- went not to the
Debtor, but directly into a lock box account established at Wells
Fargo and controlled by Suncrest Towne Center.

Each month the Debtor's revenues were then distributed from that
lock box by Suncrest Towne Center, which received payments each
month totaling $137,699.29, comprised of: its principal payment of
$25,494; interest payments (at a rate of 6.54%) totaling $79,348
each month; escrow reserves for real estate taxes ($7,324) and
insurance ($8,373); a separate mandatory FF&E reserve ($17,161);
and a $2,000 administrative fee. In addition, the Debtor was
required to maintain a $5,000 minimum balance in the lock box
account.

As market conditions declined, as the Debtor's revenues declined,
and as the Hotel's value declined as well, Suncrest Towne Center
continued paying itself $138,000 monthly on a loan that was based
on Suncrest Towne Center's own appraised value of the Hotel at
$22.5 million, and yet expected the full burden of those declining
market conditions to fall on the Debtor's shoulders.

In August, 2017, Suncrest Towne Center scheduled a non-judicial
sale of the Hotel, and filed an action solely on the note against
the Debtor in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of
West Virginia, and sought the appointment of a receiver for the
Hotel.  The District Court entered an order appointing a receiver
for the Debtor's Hotel on Oct. 18, 2017.

Accordingly, the Debtor seeks the interim authorization to use cash
collateral upon turnover of its property by the Receiver.  The
Debtor claims that absent the ability to use cash collateral, the
Debtor will be unable to pay ordinary course expenses including
funding payroll, payroll taxes, and the payment of health
insurance, among other necessary and ordinary expenses.  The Debtor
asserts that if will be unable to pay these expenses, this will
lead to the swift departure of many of the Debtor's employees,
vendor defaults, and immediate declines in revenue, resulting in a
substantial decline in the going-concern value of the Debtor and
serious questions as to ongoing viability.

The Debtor proposes, upon turnover of the Debtor's property by the
receiver back to the Debtor, to provide adequate protection to
Suncrest Towne Center that will protect Suncrest Towne Center's
collateral position, as follows:

      (a) The Debtor will grant Suncrest Towne Center a running
replacement lien on all cash generated by the Debtor from and after
the Petition Date;

      (b) The Debtor will escrow 1/12 of all real estate taxes on a
going forward basis, which escrow will be available to pay
post-petition real estate taxes when due;

      (c) The Debtor will maintain comprehensive insurance coverage
on all its real property and standard business risk liability
coverages on all property;

      (d) The Debtor will abide by the budget, subject to up to a
10% increase variance per item per month. If there is an
anticipated increase variance of more than 10%, the Debtor will
seek approval from Suncrest Towne Center, which approval will not
be unreasonably withheld. If the parties are unable to agree to
such variance, the parties may seek a ruling from the Court on an
emergency basis;

      (e) The Debtor will file its DIP Financial Reports on a
timely basis;

      (f) On reasonable notice, Lender may review the Debtor's
books and records during normal business hours and so as not to
disrupt normal business operations. In such event, Suncrest Towne
Center may have up to two auditors review the books and records at
any one time. The cost and expense of any such audit or review will
be borne by Suncrest Towne Center;

      (g) On reasonable notice, Suncrest Towne Center may inspect
the business operations of the Debtor, but only in a manner so as
not to disrupt normal business operations.

PALOMAR HEALTH: Fitch Corrects Dec. 7 Release
---------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings issued a correction of a press release on Palomar
Health refunding revenue bonds published on Dec. 7, 2017.  It
updates the issuer to California Municipal Finance Authority from
Palomar Health for the COPs series 2017.

The revised press release is as follows:

Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB+' rating to the expected issuance
of $56.18 million of certificates of participation (COPs)
Evidencing Proportionate Undivided Ownership Interests of the
Holders Thereof in Installment Payments issued by California
Municipal Finance Authority to be Paid by Palomar Health (PH or the
district) and $153.29 million of Palomar Health refunding revenue
bonds, series 2017.

Additionally, Fitch has affirmed the 'BB+' Issuer Default rating
(IDR) on the district, the 'BB+' rating on PH's outstanding revenue
bonds and series 2007A, 2009A, and 2010A general obligation (GO)
bonds.

The Rating Outlook is Positive for the ratings as mentioned.

Fitch has also affirmed the 'AAA' rating on the series 2016A&B GO
bonds based on pledged special revenue analysis. The Rating Outlook
on the series 2016A&B bonds is Stable.

The bonds are expected to sell as fixed rate the week of Dec. 18
via negotiation. The series 2017 refunding revenue bonds will be
used to refund series 2010 COPs for savings. The series 2017 COPs
will be used to finance design, construction, acquisition and
improvement of hospital and healthcare facilities.

SECURITY

Revenue bonds are secured by a gross revenue pledge of the
obligated group (OG). Gross revenues exclude property tax revenue.
The OG consists of PH's acute care facilities as well as other
healthcare related entities and will include Arch Health Partners
(AHP), a medical foundation as of fiscal 2018 (June 30 year end).
GO bonds are payable from an unlimited ad valorem property tax that
was approved by the voters in the district in a 2004 election.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

SOUND AND IMPROVING PERFORMANCE: PH improved its fiscal 2016 and
2017 profitability through performance improvement initiatives.
Maintenance of the Positive Outlook reflects Fitch expectations for
sustained profitability and liquidity growth associated with PH's
service consolidation.

SERVICE CONSOLIDATION: In June 2015, the board of directors
approved closure of the 295-bed Palomar Medical Center Downtown
Escondido (PMCDE) in Escondido. State regulatory requirements
contributed to delays in the full closure of PMCDE. Fitch expects
PH to realize meaningful savings once the full consolidation is
complete (by March 2019) based on resource allocation
efficiencies.

GOOD MARKET POSITION: PH maintains a dominant 51% market share
within its North San Diego County primary service territory and
benefits from strategic affiliations with Kaiser Foundation
Hospitals, Kindred Rehabilitation Services, the Mayo Clinic Network
and Rady Children's Hospital. Its medical foundation, AHP provides
a primary care base that will be integral in care coordination.

PLEDGED SPECIAL REVENUE ANALYSIS: Fitch rates the district's GO
refunding bonds, series 2016A and 2016B 'AAA' based on a dedicated
tax analysis without regard to district or hospital financial
operations. Fitch has been provided with legal opinions by district
counsel that provide a reasonable basis for concluding that the tax
revenues are levied to repay the bonds would be considered pledged
special revenues in the event of a district bankruptcy.

CERTAIN GO BONDS CAPPED AT IDR: Series 2007A, 2009A, and 2010A GO
bonds are capped at PH's IDR absent comparable legal opinions as
these bonds would not be protected by a pledge of special revenues,
leaving them subject to an automatic stay in the unlikely event of
the district's insolvency.

STRONG ECONOMIC RESOURCE BASE: The economic resource base
supporting the district's GO bonds is strong, diverse, and growing.
The tax base grew 200% between fiscal years 1999 and 2018. The
unlimited nature of the tax offsets any concern about tax base
volatility.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

IMPROVED LIQUIDITY: The continuation of solid operating performance
and improved liquidity would likely result in upward rating
movement of the 'BB+' rating over the next two years.

TAX BASE DRIVES GO SECURITY RATING: The district's 'AAA' rating on
the GO refunding bonds, series 2016A and 2016B could come under
downward pressure in a significant and long-lasting decline in the
district's tax base and economy, which Fitch considers unlikely.

CREDIT PROFILE

PH is California's largest local health care district serving
approximately 539,000 residents over approximately 800 square miles
of northern inland San Diego County. The service area is primarily
residential, with some light industrial and commercial activity. PH
owns and operates two hospitals in northern San Diego County:
286-bed Palomar Medical Center Escondido that opened in August 2012
and 95-bed Palomar Medical Center Poway (PMCP); as well as a
downtown campus hospital that is currently in transition to close.
PH also owns and operates Villa Pomerado - a 129-bed skilled
nursing facility that is located adjacent to PMCP. AHP is a medical
foundation with 60 FTE physicians in eight clinic locations
providing alignment between PH and its physicians.

Fitch's financial analysis is based on the consolidated entity and
excludes the GO bonds and related property tax revenue and interest
expense since the GO debt is self-supporting. Fiscal 2017 (June 30
year-end) operating revenues total $803 million. As a California
healthcare district, PH receives unrestricted tax revenues that
account for about 2% of its operating revenue.

SOUND FINANCIAL PROFILE

Unrestricted cash and investments of $223.7 million (June 30, 2017)
reflect four years of steady growth and equate to 106.9 days cash
on hand (DCOH), favorable to Fitch's below investment grade ('BIG')
category median of 87.5 days. However, cash-to-debt of 37.7% as of
June 30, 2017 is unfavorable to Fitch's 'BIG' category median of
58.7% reflecting PH's elevated leverage.

Operating EBITDA margins of 9.7% in fiscal 2016 and 9.1% in fiscal
2017 represent progressive improvement over the past four years
driven by a focus on operating efficiencies. Near term improvement
initiatives are focused on revenue cycle savings and PH projects
achievement of its 9.2% operating EBITDA target for fiscal 2018.
Fitch expects the PMCDE closure and service consolidation to
provide additional savings by 2020. The remaining services at PMCDE
(radiation therapy, acute rehabilitation, and behavioral health)
will be transitioned to other facilities.

MANAGEABLE DEBT BURDEN; ELEVATED LEVERAGE

Total debt outstanding of $1.2 billion (Sept. 30, 2017) consists of
revenue bonds ($566 million) and GO bonds ($619 million).
Outstanding revenue bonds are 70% fixed rate and 30% variable rate
(auction mode; series 2006). PH has three fixed payor interest rate
swaps with Citi related to the series 2006 bonds and the swaps are
insured by Assured Guaranty. There are currently no collateral
posting requirements, but if Assured Guaranty's rating falls below
the 'A' category, collateral posting would be required at a zero
threshold. There is an additional termination event if Assured
Guaranty's rating falls below 'BBB'. The mark to market value on
the swap as of June 30, 2017 was negative $26.5 million.

The $56 million new money Series 2017 revenue bond issuance will
finance the design, construction, acquisition and improvement of
hospital and healthcare facilities to enhance the district's
competitive profile. Maximum annual debt service (MADS) remains
materially unchanged due to the refunding bond savings and
structure of the series 2017 bond terms through fiscal 2048.
Routine capital needs average $15 million per year over the next
several years and will be funded through cash flow.

Leverage is elevated as measured by debt to capitalization of 76.3%
as of June 30, 2017 (77.5% inclusive of the series 2017 new money
issuance) in relation to Fitch's 'BIG' median of 56%.

Proforma MADS of $39.4 million is covered 1.9x by fiscal 2017
operating EBITDA, consistent with the BIG category median of 1.8x.

GO BOND ANALYSIS

The specific features of the GO refunding bonds, series 2016A and
2016B meet Fitch's criteria for rating special revenue obligation
debt without consideration of the district's general credit
quality. Fitch believes bondholders are effectively insulated from
hospital operations risk as expressed in its IDR. Fitch sets a high
bar for considering local government tax-supported debt to be
secured by special revenues, which provide security that survives
the filing of a municipal bankruptcy (in preservation of the lien)
and benefit from relief from the automatic stay provision of the
bankruptcy code. Fitch gives credit to special revenue status only
if, in its view, the overall legal framework renders remote a
successful challenge to the status of the debt as secured by
special revenues under Section 902 (2) (e) of the U.S. Bankruptcy
Code.

Fitch has identified a number of elements it considers sufficient
to reduce the incentive to challenge the special revenue status
given the definitions outlined in the bankruptcy code. These
include clear restrictions on the use of pledged revenues for
identified projects and clear separation from the entity's
operations. Fitch has undertaken an extensive review of the
statutory provisions that govern the use of the pledged property
tax revenues. Those provisions, along with the legal documents
governing the bond issuance, provide sufficient strength for Fitch
to rate the district's GO bonds higher than its IDR. As a result,
Fitch analyzes the GO refunding bonds, series 2016A and 2016B as
dedicated tax bonds. This analysis focuses on the district's
economy, tax base, and debt burden without regard to the IDR. Fitch
typically calculates the ratio of available revenues to debt
service for dedicated tax bonds, but the unlimited nature of the
tax rate pledge on the district's bonds eliminates the need for
such calculations.

The district's bond counsel has determined that it cannot opine
that the district's outstanding GO bonds election of 2004, series
2007A, 2009A, and 2010A are secured by a pledge of special
revenues. These outstanding GO bonds would not be protected by a
pledge of the special revenues, leaving them subject to the
automatic stay upon a potential insolvency of the district. Absent
an opinion that the tax revenues constitute pledged special
revenues under Chapter 9, the series 2007A, 2009A, and 2010A GO
bonds cannot be rated distinct from and higher than the IDR.

GROWING TAX BASE

The district's tax base is strong, having grown 200% between fiscal
years 1999 and 2018. An almost 6% recessionary decline through
fiscal 2013 has been more than offset by a strong 30% rebound
through fiscal 2018 when taxable assessed valuation (TAV) nearly
reached $80 billion.

The ability to make debt service payment is unlikely to be reduced
by expected cyclical variations in the tax base and economy. The
district's service area retains good potential for long-term growth
due to its location, availability of relatively affordable land for
development, and a growing labor force. There is no taxpayer
concentration; the top 10 property taxpayers collectively accounted
for less than 3% of fiscal 2018 TAV. Approximately three quarters
of the tax base is residential.

Tax rates are low and unlikely to rise to a level that would
pressure the rating even under relatively severe stress scenarios.
The general tax rate of 1% of TAV is capped by Proposition 13 and
cannot be increased. The total levy, including debt service
overrides for the district and overlapping jurisdictions, is low
and varies automatically with debt service and TAV changes. Fitch
considers the tax base to be very unlikely to suffer losses that
would meaningfully erode repayment capacity.

While wealth levels within the district vary considerably, all
residents are well located to benefit from employment opportunities
in the growing, diverse economies of both San Diego and southern
Orange Counties.

VARIATION FROM PUBLISHED CRITERIA

Fitch applied a variation to its 'U.S. Public Finance Tax-Supported
Rating Criteria' in assigning the security rating above PH's IDR.
Even though bondholders have a claim on general revenues of the
district, the presence of the statutory lien serves as an effective
mitigant, resulting in an overall structure that Fitch believes
sufficiently reduces the incentive to challenge the bonds' special
revenue status under 902(2)(E) in a bankruptcy. Statutory liens
survive bankruptcy filing in the same way that special revenue
status would.

PHOTO STENCIL: StenTech Buying All Assets for $2.4 Million
----------------------------------------------------------
Photo Stencil, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Colorado to authorize the sale of substantially all assets to
StenTech Photo Stencil, LLC, for $2,390,500.

The Debtor's production facility and office is located in a
building that it subleases from Pixelteq, Inc., pursuant to a
sublease dated in April 2014 ("Production Plant").  Despite the
sublease date, it took an extended amount of time to improve the
facility and for the Debtor to move into the facility which only
occurred in January 2016.  The facility has been improved by the
Debtor at a cost of approximately $3 million in tenant improvement
and equipment.  The monthly rent for the facility is approximately
$41,813 plus other amounts due under the sublease.

The Debtor has been plagued throughout the case by the inability to
assume its sublease of the Production Plant.  This is because there
are several mechanics liens encumbering the Production Plant that
the Debtor needs to pay off in order to assume its underlying
sublease.  In addition, the Debtor is behind on paying pre-petition
rent on the sublease.  The last date for the Debtor to assume or
reject its non-residential real property lease has been extended
several times until the current date of Dec. 29, 2017.

The Debtor's assets are all subject to several liens and equipment
leases and finance agreements.  The first security interest or
assignee under a post-petition factoring agreement is Izzy
Aviation, LLC or assigns ("IAL").  The IAL claim is approximately
$150,000 and IAL is the assignee or owner of all of the Debtor's
accounts receivable.  The accounts receivable have gone down over
the prior months.

The senior lender on all assets other than accounts receivable is
PMC Financial Services Group, LLC.  The PMC claim is approximately
$2,000,000.  Its assets are also subject to a secured claim held by
TKF Interim Funding II, LLC.  The TKF loan has an outstanding
balance of approximately $4,900,000.  The TKF loan is also secured
by all accounts receivable and personal property, though junior to
IAL and PMC.  The Debtor also owns or leases several items of
equipment that are subject to the claims of lessors and holders of
purchase money security interests.  

Given the value of the Debtor's assets, it appears that IAL is
fully secured and PMC is under-secured.  TKF is totally unsecured.
The Debtor has attempted to turn its business around during the
course of the Chapter 11 case without success.  It has been able to
negotiate continuing extensions of the time to assume its sublease
of the Production Plant and has refinanced its ongoing factoring
program through, Bay View, a new lender.  Bay View defaulted the
Debtor and stopped funding at which time IAL acquired the Bay View
loan and continued limited funding.  

The Debtor has determined that it is in the best interest of the
estate and creditors for the Debtor to sell its assets pursuant to
11 U.S.C. Section 363 rather than reorganize.  It does not have
funds with which to continue and maintain ongoing operations to a
level that is sufficient to enable the Debtor to propose a
meaningful Plan of Reorganization.  This is due in large part
because the Debtor does not have the funds with which to operate
and fund ongoing operations.  In fact, the Debtor is delinquent in
payment of post-petition obligations and cannot continue to operate
and increase its post-petition obligations.

If the Debtor can be sold as a going concern, the Debtor will be
able to maximize a recovery for PMC, repay IAL, generate funds to
allow for the assumption and assignment of the underlying sublease
of the Production Plant, and produce funds to pay a portion of the
administrative expenses and priority taxes.  The United States
Trustee has also filed a Motion to Convert Case to Chapter 7 which
it will proceed with if the Debtor cannot accomplish a quick sale
of assets.

The Debtor has located the Purchaser for the sale of assets.  The
Debtor and the Purchaser have entered into the StenTech Asset
Purchase Agreement which will provide funds to allow the Debtor's
sublease to be resolved, the mechanics liens encumbering the
Debtor's building to be resolved, taxes to be paid to the State of
Colorado, and certain secured creditors and lessors claims to be
satisfied at reduced amounts.  Funds will also be received to pay a
certain amount of the administrative expenses.

On Nov. 9, 2017, the Debtor filed a motion to sell all of its
assets on an emergency basis due to the Debtor's inability to
reorganize and pay its ongoing expenses.  All parties in the case
were provided notice within which to object to the sale, including
the assumption and assignment of executory contracts and unexpired
leases.  The sale proposed under the November 9th Motion also did
not provide enough money to pay all of the obligations that needed
to be paid to assume and assign the Debtor's sublease, pay secured
creditors, and pay administrative expenses.  The proposed purchaser
elected not to complete the sale.  All creditors who objected to
the November 9th Motion are receiving notice of the Second Motion.

The Debtor asks entry of an order approving the sale of
substantially all of its assets free and clear of liens, claims,
and other encumbrances.  The assets to be sold by the Debtor are
set forth in the APA at Section 2.1 and include but are not limited
to the following items: all machinery, equipment, fixtures,
furnishings, tenant improvements, storage racks, tools, dies and
furniture and other similar items of personal property, inventory,
computers, software and software licenses including but not limited
to the Orbotech, Inc. software license, intellectual property and
intellectual property licenses, deposits and prepaid expenses,
books and records, warranties, and all other items specified in the
APA.

Not all of the Debtor's assets will be sold to the Purchaser.  The
Debtor will retain their avoidance actions under Part 5 of the
Bankruptcy Code and cash and accounts receivable that are not
needed to repay the IAL loan.

The Debtor has the signed StenTech APA for the sale of its assets
and business.  The APA and the sale are subject to Court approval.

The purchase price is comprised of these components:

     a. $650,000 in assumed debt owed to PMC which will satisfy its
claim against the Debtor and must be paid within 30 days of the
sale closing.  At the closing StenTech will execute a promissory
note and security agreement satisfactory to PMC evidencing
StenTech's obligation to PMC.  PMC's consent to the sale will be
subject to the following terms: (i) the sale will be subject to
PMC’s security interests in the assets to be acquired by
StenTech; (ii) the sale will be to StenTech, a new entity with no
creditors; (iii) as soon as practicable after timely receiving the
PMC payment of $650,000, PMC will deliver an executed UCC-3
termination statement with respect to the assets acquired by
StenTech;

     b. Payment of Royal Financial in the amount of $45,000 in full
satisfaction of its lease claim against the Debtor and Royal
Financial has agreed to transfer the Sullair Air Compressor, Scan
CAD Inspection System, the Keyence Microscope and other equipment
to StenTech as of the Closing Date free and clear of all liens and
encumbrances pursuant to a purchase agreement to be entered into at
Closing;

     c. $559,500 will be paid in the form of cash through a wire
transfer to the Debtor at closing;

     d. $106,000 will be paid through assumption of normal payroll
related expenses due to employees plus other payroll related
expenses agreed to be paid by StenTech;

     e. $50,000 will be paid to Garic Financial in full
satisfaction of Garic's claim against Debtor and Garic has agreed
to transfer the Aqua Batch Alpha 4700 Series Dual Treatment to
StenTech as of the Closing Date free and clear of all liens and
encumbrances;

     f. StenTech has agreed to purchase certain equipment directly
from Forum Financial for a purchase price of $100,000, which
purchase will terminate the Lease Agreement with Forum Financial
and satisfy Forum's claim against Debtor in full; and

     g. $880,000 will be paid through the Purchaser's assumption of
the Debtor's obligation to Intel Corp. consisting of an unearned
revenue liability which was previously assumed by the Debtor
post-petition.

A copy of the SteTech APA attached to the Motion is available for
free at:

      http://bankrupt.com/misc/Photo_Stencil_392_Sales.pdf

The Debtor asks authorization to sell its assets free and clear of
liens, claims and encumbrances and other interests, except for the
PMC obligation as previously described.  The Debtor believes that
the secured creditors all consent and approve the sale free and
clear of liens.

The sale will include provisions for the assignment of the Debtor's
executory contract with Intel Corp. to StenTech.  StenTech will
assume the Debtor's obligations under the Intel contract and a
substantial liability will be eliminated from the case.  StenTech
has conferred with Intel and it is believed that they have reached
agreement on the assumption by StenTech of the Intel contract.

The Debtor will have not have to assume or assign any real or
personal property lease to StenTech.  Its sublease of the
Production Plant is being terminated and in exchange certain
payments are being made.  First, $151,000 is being paid by StenTech
to satisfy the mechanics liens on the Production Plant.  Second,
the sublease with Pixelteq, Inc. is being terminated and StenTech
will enter into a new lease of the Production Plant with the owner
of the property, WPC-Triad, LLC. Pixelteq's ongoing obligation
under its lease will also be terminated.

The Debtor believes that given the bids received, there is
virtually no realistic scenario under which any recovery could be
made that would pay the secured creditors in full and return any
money to unsecured creditors.  As a result, given the fact that it
is believed that the critical lenders and creditors are satisfied
with the StenTech APA there is no purpose to be served through
further marketing of the assets.  In additions, the Debtor does not
have the funding to survive further marketing and the Debtor will
lose its facility lease on Dec. 29, 2017.  The Debtor therefore
respectfully submits that a prompt sale is in the best interest of
creditors and will maximize the amount that creditors may realize
on account of their claims in the case.   Accordingly, the Debtor
asks that the Court grants the relief without the imposition of any
automatic stay of effect that might otherwise apply to the Sale
Order pursuant to the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.

PRADO MANAGEMENT: AZBT Files First Amended Plan of Liquidation
--------------------------------------------------------------
Arizona Bank & Trust filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Arizona a disclosure statement in support of its first
amended plan of liquidation, dated Dec. 15, 2017, for Prado
Management, LLC.

Under the AZBT Plan, the Debtor will have at least 90 days from the
Effective Date to consummate a sale of their Scottsdale Property.
The Net Proceeds of any such sale will be distributed to the
holders of Allowed Claims in order of their priority.  The Plan
Agent will interplead the Surplus and any persons claiming an
equity interest in the Debtor may assert their claims to such
Surplus in the Interpleader Action.  The Debtor's Exclusive Sale
Period may be extended at AZBT's sole discretion, subject to
Debtor's agreement to the extension, and will be terminated if
Debtor fails, within five days' written notice by AZBT, to cure any
failure to secure the Property, maintain property and liability
insurance for the Property as required under the AZBT Deed of Trust
and related Loan agreements, maintain and pay all water, electric,
and gas utilities, or to maintain the Property in a first class
condition.

Within 14 days of expiration of the Debtor's Exclusive Sale Period,
AZBT will commence an action for the appointment of a receiver for
the Property, who will have the authority and obligation to market
and attempt to sell the Property for its fair market value. All Net
Proceeds from any sale of the Property will be distributed to the
holders of Allowed Claims in order of the priorities. Any Surplus
will be interpleaded.

AZBT will be precluded from completing a Trustee's Sale of the
Property for a period of 180 days from the Effective Date. If AZBT
completes a Trustee's Sale following the expiration of this 180 day
period, then it will submit a Credit Bid equal to the full
outstanding balance of its Allowed Secured Claim, inclusive of all
interest, costs, attorneys' fees, and other charges accrued through
the date of the Trustee's Sale. If AZBT takes title to the Property

-------------------------------------------------------
Rapid-American Corp. asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York to authorize the sale of its rights
and interests in the Midland Claims to Insurance Liquidation
Investors, L.L.C., for $1,750,000, subject to higher and better
offers.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Feb. 13, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
(ET).  The objection deadline is Feb. 6, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. (ET).

The Debtor's estate has claims ("Midland Claims") in connection
with the Matter of the Liquidation of Midland Insurance Co.
("Midland Liquidation"), Index No. 41294/86, Supreme Court of the
State of New York, County of New York ("State Court").  

Specifically, the Midland Claims are comprised of these allowed
claims in the Midland Liquidation totaling $10 million pursuant to
a Stipulation by and between Rapid and certain insurers dated Aug.
21, 2013: (i) $5 million allowed claim in connection with policy
number XL-160235; and (ii) $5 million allowed claim in connection
with policy number XL-706810.  On Oct. 1, 2013, the Court entered
an Order approving the Stipulation.  On Oct. 18, 2013, the State
Court issued an Order approving the allowance of the Midland Claims
in the amount of $10 million.  

Prior to the Motion, the Debtor has received an interim
distribution in connection with the Midland Claims in the amount of
$2.5 million.  The Debtor now proposes to sell its rights and
interests in the Midland Claims to the Purchaser, pursuant to the
Assignment of Claims Agreement.  Pursuant to the terms of the
Assignment of Claims Agreement, the Debtor's estate will receive
$1,750,000.  the The Debtor proposes to sell the Midland Claims to
the Purchaser free and clear of all liens, claims, interests and
encumbrances, subject to higher and better offers up to the time of
the hearing on the Motion.

free at:

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/Rapid-American_Corp_938_Sales.pdf

During October 2017, the Debtor's representative had several
conversations with representatives of each of the Potential
Purchasers.  One of those parties advised that it was no longer
interested in acquiring the Debtor's Midland Claims, while the
others made varying offers for those claims.  Alluvium Partners,
which is acting as a broker for the Purchaser, was the highest
bidder and, therefore, Rapid determined to sell its Midland Claims
to the Purchaser.

The Debtor believes that the Purchase Price that it will realize on
the Sale, for which approval is currently being sought, is the
highest and best offer it can achieve at this time on the sale of
its Midland Claims.  The Purchase Price is reasonable with the
current market for Midland Claims and has been negotiated at
arm's-length.  It submits that the sale of the Midland Claims is a
prudent exercise of its business judgment under the circumstances
and is in the best interest of the Debtor's estate and its
creditors.

The Debtor asks that the Court waive the 14-day stay under
Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h).

RYCKMAN CREEK: Files 3rd Supplement to Modified Amended Disclosures
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Ryckman Creek Resources, LLC, and its affiliated debtors filed with
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware a third
supplement to the modified fifth amended disclosure statement with
respect to their fourth modified fourth amended joint chapter 11
plan of reorganization.

The Plan contemplates the reorganization of the Debtors, pursuant
to the Plan Sponsor Agreement, through the Plan Sponsor's purchase
of 80% of the common equity in Reorganized Ryckman in exchange for
(i) $16 million in up-front cash, and (ii) a note in the aggregate
principal amount of $10 million. The Class A Membership Interests
will have a preferred return of the higher of (i) 15% annually on
the Plan Sponsor Cash Consideration or (ii) distributions equal to
200% of the Plan Sponsor Cash Consideration. In addition, the Plan
Sponsor will pay $500,000 to the Liquidating Trust on account of
Sandton's bid protections, authorized by the Bankruptcy Court
pursuant to an order entered on Dec. 6, 2017.

The Debtors believe that the transaction contemplated under the
Plan Sponsor Agreement presents the best alternative to maximize
value for the Debtors' Estates and Creditors and that the Belle
Butte LBFO presents a superior alternative to any other plan
sponsorship proposal. The Third Modified Fourth Amended Plan
contemplated a plan sponsorship transaction with Belle Butte;
however, the terms of the Plan Sponsor Agreement have been improved
substantially by the agreement of the Plan Sponsor to provide an
additional $8.8 million of upfront cash on the Effective Date than
otherwise provided for pursuant to the Third Modified Fourth
Amended Plan. In addition, the Plan Sponsor will pay the Bid
Protections Consideration on the Effective Date, such that payment
of the bid protections shall not diminish amounts otherwise payable
to Holders of Cash-Settled Claims.

In addition, the Plan Sponsor Note has an aggregate face amount of
$10 million, rather than $11 million provided for under the Third
Modified Fourth Amended Plan. The remaining terms of the Plan
Sponsor Note, including the maturity, principal payments, and
timing of payments, remain unchanged. The Plan Sponsor has also
agreed to provide adequate assurance of future performance to
Questar and/or to otherwise resolve its concerns.

TEXDOM INVESTMENTS: Seeks Approval to Use Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------
Texdom Investments, LLC, seeks authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas for immediate
and continued use of cash collateral in accordance with a proposed
budget.

The Debtor requires the Court's approval and order of the monthly
operating budget to keep the Napa Heights Apartments operating
post-petition, to prevent interruption of services, and risking
losing tenants. The Debtor submits that the proposed operating
budget is a fair representation of expenses which may be incurred
on a monthly basis by the Napa Heights Apartments in the ordinary
course of operation of its apartments as described. The proposed
monthly operating budget provides total cash disbursements of
approximately $37,650. A copy of the proposed monthly operating
budget is available at:

            http://bankrupt.com/misc/txsb17-70485-2-bgt.pdf

The Debtor submits that if it does not timely pay such ordinary
course expenses, the business will lose necessary goods and
services it needs to continue profitable operations, constituting
immediate and irreparable harm to the estate.

The Debtor owes approximately $2.9 million to Lone Star National
Bank secured by the Napa Heights Apartments.  The Deed of Trust
signed by the Debtor grants Lone Star Bank a lien on rents, profits
and income from the Napa Heights Apartments. As such, the Debtor
believes that the income from the Napa Heights Apartments is likely
the cash collateral of Lone Star Bank.

Prepetition, the Debtor has engaged Red Door Real Estate Services,
LLC as its management company to collect rents, secure tenants for
vacancies, and pay expenses of the apartment complex.  The rents
are presently deposited Red Door's Rental Account.

The Debtor requests court approval to continue using Red Door's
property management services for the period Dec. 15, 2017 to Jan.
15, 2018 or through the date the court sets the next cash
collateral hearing, at the same rates, in the same manner as
pre-petition.

The Internal Revenue Service has served a Notice of Levy on Red
Door, but the Debtor believes that Lone Star Bank's lien on rents
is superior to the IRS' levy.

The Debtor claims that its use of cash collateral will provide
adequate protection to Lone Star Bank by maintaining the on-going
business of the Debtor and providing operational services to
Debtor's tenants, and maintaining the Napa Heights Apartments cash
flow of the Debtor.

In addition, the Debtor will provide continuing postpetition liens
to Lone Star Bank and any other secured party that has valid
prepetition security interests in cash collateral. The Debtor will
also provide adequate protection by maintaining the Napa Heights
Apartments, maintaining insurance, securing needed repairs and
replacements, continuing the business and collecting rents, and
filling vacancies.

The Debtor plans to submit a reorganization or liquidating plan to
pay Lone Star Bank and all other secured and unsecured parties.

VALLEY LUMBER: Seeks Permission to Use Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------
Valley Lumber Company, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Alabama for permission to use cash collateral
for the continued operation of its business.

The Debtor plans to continue to operate its business and manage its
business as a debtor in possession.  Likewise, the Debtor seeks to
accomplish a successful reorganization of its business, which will
allow Debtor post-confirmation to continue to operate its
business.

Accordingly, the Debtor asserts that it has an immediate need for
authority to continue to use cash collateral for its ongoing
business operations, otherwise, if Debtor is not permitted to use
the cash collateral, it will have to shut down its business
hindering any prospects of future reorganization.

The Debtor currently owes approximately $1,502,352 to Interstate
Billing Services, Inc., as the assignee of Bank Independent,
secured by substantially all of the Debtor's assets (the Debtor's
largest creditor).  In addition, the Debtor owes other secured
creditors approximately $200,000 and has existing accounts payable
in the amount of approximately $783,000.

The Debtor will submit monthly budgets to the Court and Interstate
Billing Services, indicating the amount of money used in business
operation expenses. As adequate protection for the use of cash
collateral, the Debtor proposes to provide Interstate Billing
Services a lien on post-petition accounts. Interstate Billing
Services consents to the use of its cash collateral on this basis.

The Debtor may use the advances obtained under the DIP Facility and

reasonable, out-of-pocket fees and expenses of the Pre-Petition
Agent, including, but not limited to, the Pre-Petition Agent's
professionals.

      D. In addition, the PrePetition Agent will be entitled to an
administrative claim pursuant to Section 507(b) of the Bankruptcy
Code to the extent, if any, that such adequate protection proves to
be inadequate.

The DIP Liens, DIP Facility Superpriority Claims, and Adequate

following Carve-Out Amounts:

     A. unpaid post-petition fees and expenses of the Clerk of the
Bankruptcy Court and statutory fees payable to the U.S. Trustee;

WOODBRIDGE: Opposes SEC's Bid for Receiver Over Ch. 11 Estates
--------------------------------------------------------------
Woodbridge Group of Companies, LLC, and certain of its affiliates
and subsidiaries on Dec. 28, 2017, disclosed that as part of its
effort to preserve order and value for investors and other
stakeholders in the Company's bankruptcy cases, the Company filed a
motion seeking to prevent the Securities and Exchange Commission
("SEC") from appointing a Receiver over the Debtor's Chapter 11
bankruptcy estates, which are currently under the supervision of
the United States Bankruptcy Court in the District of Delaware and
finding that the SEC violated the automatic stay set forth in the
Bankruptcy Code.  On Dec. 4, Woodbridge filed voluntary petitions
under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in an effort to
restructure its debt and maximize value for its investors.

Since the SEC commenced its investigation into Robert Shapiro,
former principal of Woodbridge, and Woodbridge, and prior to new
Independent Manager, Beilinson Advisory Group, taking control of
Company management and filing Chapter 11 cases, the SEC had taken
no enforcement or disciplinary action against Mr. Shapiro or
Woodbridge.  During the year prior to the Independent Manager
taking control, Woodbridge raised approximately $350M.

Since the appointments of Beilinson Advisory Group and Chief
Restructuring Officer, Larry Perkins, new management has focused on
protecting investors and maximizing the estate for the benefit all
stakeholders.

Specific actions include:

   -- Immediately ceased all fundraising, which was the subject of
the SEC's investigation -- an action protecting the public good.
   -- Commenced Chapter 11 cases to maximize value for the benefit
of all stakeholders.
   -- Implemented a process to protect the value of the Company's
assets, evaluate the company's obligations to its creditors,
resolve their claims promptly, and make appropriate use of the
Bankruptcy Code to ensure a fair and equitable distribution.
   -- Removed Robert Shapiro from all involvement in the Company's
business and ensured that he is currently receiving no compensation
from the debtors.
   -- Secured control of additional non-debtor entities with a
value exceeding $20M.

Nevertheless, on Dec. 21, 2017, after more than a year of
investigating Mr. Robert Shapiro and well after the Company had
initiated a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case intended to protect
creditors' interests, the SEC filed a motion to appoint a receiver
over Woodbridge's property, including those that are part of the
Chapter 11 cases.

"It is disappointing that the SEC has taken this action despite the
productive conversations we held with them and the actions we have
taken to protect creditors' interests since I stepped into this
role in early December," said Mr. Perkins.  "The SEC fails to see
that its action could cause irreparable harm to our creditors --
dramatically alter the Company's rights, impair and deplete assets
of the estate and hinder the reorganization efforts.  We are
seeking Court protection to ensure we are able to continue with the
bankruptcy process and maximize recovery for creditors."

"The SEC's action would erase the extensive efforts the Company's
independent management has taken to bring transparency to the
business and maximize recoveries for all the Company's
constituents," said Sam Newman, partner at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher
LLP and counsel to Woodbridge.

The Company is seeking a hearing on Jan. 5, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. ET
for these matters.

Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP is serving as legal advisor,
SierraConstellation Partners LLC is serving as chief restructuring
officer and financial advisor, and Beilinson Advisory Group is
serving as independent management to the debtors.

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.

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.
