AMERITRUCK: Needs Time To Assume/Reject Leases
----------------------------------------------
The debtors, AmeriTruck Distribution Corp., et al., seek a
court order further extending the period within which the
debtors must assume or reject leases of nonresidential real
property.  The debtors represent that they are currently
working toward downsizing significantly, which includes the
liquidation of some of the equipment that is currently
parked and/or located at the leased properties.  Rejecting
the leases with respect to the properties that currently
house equipment that the debtors ultimately intend to sell
would result in significant moving costs tot he debtors.
The debtors have identified approximately six of the leases
that, in all probability, will either be assumed or assumed
and assigned to a successor of the debtors.


AMPACE CORP: Seeks To Hire Real Estate Broker
---------------------------------------------
The debtors, Ampace Corporation and Ampace Freightlines,
Inc. are seeking authorization to hire Trollinger Real
Estate Professionals as the debtors' real estate broker.

The debtors are selling two parcels of real estate in South
Asheboro, North Carolina and the debtors seek authority to
retain the firm as their real estate broker to market the
properties.


BISCAYNE APPAREL: Notice of Auction Sale
----------------------------------------
Notice of an intended auction sale was published in The
Wall Street Journal on February 19, 1999.  The sale is of
substantially all of the assets of M&L International Inc.,
debtor.  The Buyer, Amerex, Inc. and M&L International
Group LLC has offered to purchase the assets for
approximately $3.5 million in cash.  The purchase is
required to be closed on or before March 5, 1999 or by
March 12, 1999 if additional time is required.  The court
will consider any higher or better offers for the assets at
the auction.


BMJ MEDICAL: Committee Backs Employee Retention Program
-------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of BMJ
Medical Management, Inc. responds in support of the
debtors' emergency motion for entry of an order authorizing
the employee retention program.

The Committee asserts that the debtors have acute employee
retention challenges, and that the debtors have modified
the program to reduce potential administrative expenses to
the estates.  The Retention Program obligations have been
reduced to $1.3 million total, and the carve-out has been
increases to $300,000 directly for the benefit of general
unsecured creditors.  The Committee believes that the
Retention program is reasonable and necessary under the
circumstances.


CARPETERIA INC: Files Chapter 11 Petition
-----------------------------------------
The Los Angeles Daily News reports on February 20, 1999
that Carpeteria Inc., which recently closed several stores,
filed Thursday for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Details of the reorganization filing were not immediately
available.

Santa Clarita-based Carpeteria, founded in 1960 by brothers
Harold and Ted Haserjian, owns about 16 floor-covering
stores throughout the state. The doors on the company-owned
stores were locked earlier this month, with merchandise
still inside. The fate of those stores is up in the air as  
Carpeteria tries to reorganize its finances and stave off
creditors through the bankruptcy filing.

The Chapter 11 filing only involves company-owned
Carpeterias and not the estimated 40 other Carpeterias in
California, Nevada, Oregon and Pennsylvania that are
operated by franchisees. All of the franchise-run
Carpeterias are doing fine, said Ray Yeghiazarian,  
who owns three Carpeteria stores in Las Vegas.


FPA MEDICAL MANAGEMENT: Expects To Complete Hearing 2/24
--------------------------------------------------------                            
At a hearing conducted on February 18, 1999, the U.S.  
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware adjourned FPA
Medical Management, Inc.'s (OTC Bulletin Board: FPAMQ)
Disclosure Statement hearing to February 24, 1999, at which
time FPA expects to complete the hearing.  The
Bankruptcy Court also rescheduled the confirmation hearing
from March 25, 1999 to April 7, 1999.

Upon approval of the Disclosure Statement, the Company will
commence the solicitation of votes for approval of the
Plan.

FPA Medical Management, Inc. and various of its affiliates
and subsidiaries filed petitions under Chapter 11 in the
Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington on July  19, 1998 and
various dates thereafter through August 7, 1998.


FRANKEL'S HOME: Court Approves $7.5 Million In Financing
--------------------------------------------------------
On February 18, 1999 the bankruptcy court approved $7.5
million in DIP financing for Frankel's Home Furnishings.

The financing, which was provided by the company's existing
lender, BankBoston Retail Finance, gives Frankel's almost
$2 million in increased availability during its Chapter 11.

"We are pleased with the support we have received from
BankBoston. This DIP credit facility will give us the
liquidity we need to continue our turnaround,"
said Joseph Nusim, President and CEO of Frankel's Home
Furnishings.

In other motions yesterday, the bankruptcy court also
approved orders authorizing the company to continue its
customer service programs - including  
refund, layaways and installation; pay employees and
certain pre-petition shipping charges; and maintain
existing bank accounts.

Frankel's Home Furnishings, Inc. is headquartered in Port
Washington, New York. Frankel's currently operates 194
stores and leased linen and flooring departments.


GENESIS MANUFACTURING: Seeks Extension of Exclusivity
-----------------------------------------------------
The debtor, Genesis Manufacturing Limited L.C., debtor,
seeks an order extending the time period within which the
debtor has the exclusive right to propose and file a plan
of reorganization for a period of 120 days to and including
June 28, 1999 and extending the time period within which
the debtor may solicit acceptances of its plan of
reorganization to and including August 27 1999.

During the first three months of its case, the debtor has
focused its efforts on implementing production improvements
necessary to enhance its prospects of continuing in
business as a viable Tier 1 GM parts supplier.  The debtor
has formulated a business plan for review with GM during
the week of February 15.  Debtor's objective is to garner
support of GM, its sole customer and senior secured lender.  
Addition time is now needed to formulate a plan of
reorganization centered on a business plan which
contemplates a more diverse customer base while being able
to realistically forecast sale s to GM.  Absent this
extension, the debtor believes that a competitor or
investor may attempt to acquire the debtor's assets at a
depressed or "at-cost" purchase price under a non-
consensual plan, depriving unsecured creditors of the
prospect of a recovery.


GENEVA STEEL: District Court Approves Credit Facility
-----------------------------------------------------
Geneva Steel (NYSE: GNVS) announced on February 22, 1999
that the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah has
granted  Geneva's motion to approve a new $125 million
debtor-in-possession credit facility.  The new credit
facility, which will replace Geneva's existing line  
of credit, is intended to provide additional liquidity and
strengthen Geneva's ability to continue serving customers
and paying vendors in the ordinary course.  Geneva
management currently anticipates that the new credit
facility will be completed today and funds will be
available to Geneva shortly thereafter.

"The Company is grateful for the Court's ruling," said
Joseph A. Cannon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  
"This important development should give confidence to our
employees, customers, and suppliers."


GENEVA STEEL: More Charges of Steel Dumping
-------------------------------------------
The Clinton administration has done little to fend off
cheap foreign steel that has flooded the U.S. market and
threatened the domestic steel industry, three senators said
Thursday.

"My patience is running out on this thing," said U.S. Sen.
Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., at a special hearing about the
crisis. "It just kills me to see this industry being eroded
. . . I will not quit. And I'm not afraid of anything or  
anybody."

Union and steel company representatives testified before
Rockefeller and Sens. Arlen Specter and Rick Santorum, both
Pennsylvania Republicans, at the hearing in Pittsburgh.

The senators, who belong to the Senate Steel Caucus,
criticized Clinton for reacting too slowly to foreign
countries' steel dumping. They urged support for
legislation  --  co-sponsored by Specter and Rockefeller  
--  that would limit the practice.

Although Utah's Geneva Steel has joined with other
companies in the industry in the past in filing similar
complaints, it now has other more immediate
problems with which it must deal.

Geneva representatives were in U.S. District Court in Salt
Lake City again  Thursday pressing Judge J. Thomas Greene
to approve new financing that will allow the company to
continue to keep its doors open while it attempts to
reorganize under Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Greene has indicated he hopes to make a ruling on Geneva's
request by Monday at the latest. Rockefeller acknowledged
that so-called "quota legislation" probably will  
have a hard time passing Congress, especially because only
16 states are major steel producers.  But he warned similar
dumping could occur in any industry and said it was
important to send a message to foreign producers.  "I don't
believe in protectionism," said Rockefeller. But he added,
"On this one, I draw the line, because other countries are
taking advantage of us."

On Friday, the Clinton administration found that Japan and
Brazil sold steel in U.S. markets at prices dramatically
below production costs or home-market prices. That finding
triggers a full investigation that could lead to tariffs  
of up to 71 percent by this summer. But to Specter,
Clinton's action was "too little, and it's too late."   
"What we need is relief," Specter said. The finding "does
not help the steelworker who has lost his job."

Those who testified at the hearing expressed dismay that
Friday's finding applied to just two countries and only
hot-rolled steel. Leading steel companies and the United
Steelworkers of America on Tuesday filed import complaints
accusing eight countries of dumping: the Czech  
Republic, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Macedonia
and South Korea. The new complaints involve cut-to-length
plate steel. Imports of that product have increased 521
percent from those countries since 1995, the industry said.

The U.S. International Trade Commission has 45 days and the
Commerce Department 160 days to make a preliminary
determination of injury that could lead to new tariffs on
steel exports from those countries. Andrew "Lefty" Palm,
Pennsylvania director of the United Steelworkers, said  
more people could be laid off in the industry in July when
the union's contract, which includes a no-layoff clause,
runs out. "You may see another 75,000 steelworkers, or
more, suddenly unemployed?"  Rockefeller said.

"Oh, God, yes," Palm answered.

Paul Bucha, chairman of the board at Wheeling-Pittsburgh
Steel Corp., said his company was not relying on either
Clinton or Congress to stop dumping.


GOLDEN BOOKS: De-Listed By Nasdaq
---------------------------------
The Wisconsin State Journal reports on February 19, 1999
that Golden Books Family Entertainment, the troubled
children's book maker whose stock veered wildly Tuesday,
has been delisted from the NASDAQ Stock Market.

A NASDAQ spokesman said the stock now trades as a bulletin-
board stock. The exchange cited Golden Books' below-the-
minimum bid price and market value.

The move comes after the exchange halted trading in Golden
Books all day Wednesday. That decision followed a fantastic
run-up and drop-off in the stock price Tuesday, as
investors learned first that Golden Books was about to sell  
its products online, and then heard on CNBC that the
company was expected to announce a bankruptcy
reorganization that would drain value from its stock  
price.

On Wednesday, Golden Books, which has its most extensive
operations in Racine, confirmed it was in talks with
creditors to reorganize its debt.  On Tuesday, Golden Books
Family Entertainment's stock closed at $1.50.


HOME HEALTH: Files For Bankruptcy
---------------------------------
The St. Petersburg Times reports on February 20, 1999 that  
Home Health Corporation of America Inc., based in King of
Prussia, Pa., filed to reorganize under Chapter 11
in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware. The home health
company, which has five offices in the Tampa Bay area, said
it had severe cash flow problems because of changes in
Medicare reimbursement for home health visits and
payment delays and denials  by managed care providers. One
of Home Health's largest creditors is Dependable Home Care,
a Treasure Island company owed $291,667. Home Health
officials were not available to comment on what, if any,
impact the Chapter 11 filing would  have on its local work
force.


HOSPITAL STAFFING SERVICES: Case Converted To Chapter 7
-------------------------------------------------------                
Commercial Appeal Memphis TN reports on February 20, 1999
that Hospital Staffing Services Inc.'s Chapter 11
bankruptcy case was converted Friday to Chapter 7, which
means the company will be liquidated.

HSS owns Memphis-based Mid-South Home Health, which closed
Wednesday after the parent company's lender did not fund
the Feb. 12 payroll. Mid-South has about 300 employees in
Tennessee and Mississippi. About 70 live in the Memphis
area.

HSS filed for the voluntary bankruptcy last March. Florida-
based Capital Factors, a division of Union Planters Corp.,
had provided financing for HSS to continue operating. HSS
attorney Bart Houston said the company owes Capital  
Factors $7 million. Executives at Capital Factors said they
cannot comment on the decision to cut off funding to HSS.
Most Mid-South employees are owed at least three weeks  
pay.

Houston said the bank heads the list of creditors to be
repaid when HSS is liquidated. But he believes the former
employees' chances of being paid are pretty high because
the Department of Labor is going to intervene on their  
behalf.


IONICA: Meeting of Creditors
----------------------------
A Chapter 11 bankruptcy case was filed on December 11, 1998
concerning the debtor corporation Ionica plc Sectorsshape
Ltd; Ionica L3 Ltd.  The attorney for the debtor is David
C.L. Frauman, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, 100 Maiden
Lane New York, NY 10038.

A meeting of creditors will be held on March 16, 1999 at
3:30 PM at the Office of the United States Trustee, 80
Broad Street, Second floor, New York, NY 10004-1408.


JOTAN INC: Judge Approves Sale To Victory Packaging
---------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Jerry A. Funk last week approved the sale
of Jotan Inc.'s industrial packaging and shipping supplies
distribution business, according to The Florida
Times-Union. Jotan, based in Jacksonville, Fla., is selling
most of its business to Dalton Box and Container Inc.,
Dalton, Ga., for an estimated $3.2 million, and some of its
distribution operations in Michigan to Houston-based
Victory Packaging Inc. for $1.4 million. Jotan's operations
will be renamed Merit Container, which is a subsidiary of
Dalton Box. Jotan is also liquidating its subsidiary
Southland Container Packaging Corp., which distributes
supplies to the moving and storage industry. Victory
Packaging plans to buy one of the Los Angeles Southland
locations, but that is subject to approval on April 1.
Jotan filed chapter 11 in November, with liabilities of
about $54 million. Creditors and shareholders are not
expected to receive any distributions from the sales. (ABI
22-Feb-99)


LOGAN GENERAL: Wants To Sell Non-Health Care Holdings
-----------------------------------------------------
Attorneys for Logan General Hospital told Bankruptcy Judge
Ronald G. Pearson at a hearing last week that they want to
sell 23 houses, office buildings and other parcels of
property to eliminate its non-health care related holdings,
The Charleston Gazette reported.  They also told the judge
of a $37.5 million price set for FountainPlace Mall. The
hospital had helped in funding the development of the mall.
Logan General, which filed chapter 11 in October, also
received an extension on filing its plan until May 3. The
hospital's plan may include affiliating with other area
hospitals or selling to a hospital chain. Judge
Pearson is expected to rule on the hospital's proposed sale
this week. (ABI 22-Feb-99)


MAIDENFORM: Seeks Extension To Assume/Reject Leases
---------------------------------------------------
The debtors, Maidenform Worldwide, Inc., et al., seek a
court order extending the period within which the debtors
may assume or reject unexpired leases of nonresidential
real property.  The debtors wish to extend the period
within which they must assume or reject any remaining
unexpired Carved-Out lease from its current expiration on
March 1, 1999 through and including August 1, 1999.  The
Carve-Out leases pertain to 29 retail outlet stores located
throughout the United States.  The debtors need additional
time to analyze individual store performance, and the
debtors must complete their longer term business planning
process with respect to individual outlet store leases,
because the longer term plan will determine the future
direction of the Retail Division.


NIAGRA MOHAWK: $3.45-Billion Financing Package               
----------------------------------------------
The Central NY Business Journal reports on January 29, 1999
that Niagara Mohawk has finalized a deal that will
stabilize its financial foundation by freeing it from
escalating payments to independent power producers (IPPs).
The $3.45-billion package, however, will mean more debt
at the outset.

According to NiMo spokeswoman Kerry Burns, the utility
giant was so heavily in debt it was heading for bankruptcy,
thanks to commitments made to the IPPs under radically
different market conditions in the 1980s. Burns said that,
although NiMo is taking on a substantial debt in the
relatively short term, it expects to save approximately $5
billion over the next 15 years, thereby reducing prices for
its customers.

The settlement agreement is a variation on the old adage,
"You have to spend money to make money." In this case, NiMo
is spending billions to save even more billions. In the
end, NiMo believes the restructuring will benefit
not only the  company, but also the manufacturing,
business, and residential economy of the  region. Copyright

NU-KOTE HOLDING: Net Loss of $9.8 Million For Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------
The Tennessean reports on February 19, 1999 that Franklin-
based Nu-kote Holding announced a net loss of $9.8 million
for its fiscal quarter ended Dec. 25, an improvement from a
$15 million loss for the year-earlier period. The imaging
supplies maker attributed the smaller loss to improved
gross margins, lower selling, general and administrative
spending and reduced restructuring costs.

Net sales for the recent quarter were $59 million, a 16%
decline from sales for the same period in 1997. Shares of
Nu-kote, which filed for bankruptcy last November, rose
yesterday 3 cents to 23 cents.


RINCON ISLAND: Order Extends Time To Assume/Reject Leases
---------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Donald D. Sullivan entered an order on
February 10, 1999 providing that the debtor, Rincon Island
Limited Partnership has up and through and including the
date Windsor confirms a plan of reorganization to assume,
assume and assign, or reject any unexpired leases of non-
residential real property.


SALANT CORPORATION: Bar Date Set
--------------------------------
Creditors and other parties who wish to assert a claim
against the debtor, Salant Corporation, that arose prior to
December 29, 1998, the date the Chapter 11 case was filed,
must file a written proof of claim on or before 4:30 PM,
March 12, 1999.


STORMEDIA INC: Seeks To Sell Certain Malaysian Assets
-----------------------------------------------------
The debtors, Stormedia Incorporated and its debtor
affiliates seek to sell certain assets located at the Kulim
facility in Malaysia.

The agreement is between debtor Strates Sdn. Bhd., seller
and Kobe Steel Ltd. and Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd.,
buyers.

The total purchase price is $8,386,000.  There are certain
conditions to closing, and if the seller terminates the
agreement prior to closing, liquidated damages of $850,000
are payable to the buyer.


THE J. PETERMAN: Interim Order Authorizes DIP Financing
-------------------------------------------------------
On February 16, 1999 the court entered an order stating
that the final hearing on the motion is continued until
February 23, 1999.

The authorization granted to the DIP in the agreed interim
orders to use the cash collateral of the Agent is extended
to February 22, 1999.

The Lender has agreed to loan to the DIP up to a gross
amount of $2,795,000 during the Interim Financing Period.

As reported previously, if the DIP does not obtain an order
from the court before February 23 authorizing the DIP to
sell all or substantially all of its assets for an amount
sufficient to satisfy the indebtedness, the DIP shall
immediately commence a liquidation of its assets.


WHEELED ELECTRIC POWER: Seeks Conversion To Chapter 7
-----------------------------------------------------
The debtor, Wheeled Electric Power Company seeks a court
order converting its Chapter 11 reorganization case to a
liquidation case under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.

Following denial of the Sale Motion to Energy Advisors,
LLC, the debtor determined that it lacked sufficient
available cash to make payments necessary to continue the
day-to-day operation of its business.  The debtor defaulted
on a number of its payment obligations to energy suppliers,
and such services were terminated.  The debtor is currently
out of the retail energy business, other than for purposes
of collection of billed and unbilled receivables.  There
remains no prospect for a reorganization or realistic sale
of its assets.


WINDSOR ENERGY US: Time Extension To Assume/Reject Leases
---------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Donald D. Sullivan entered an order on
February 10, 1999 providing that the debtor, Windsor Energy
US Corporation has up and through and including the date
Windsor confirms a plan of reorganization to assume, assume
and assign, or reject any unexpired leases of non-
residential real property.


WORLDWIDE DIRECT: Committee Objects To Sale
-------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Worldwide
Direct, Inc., et al. objects to the debtors' motion for
orders authorizing sale of substantially all the assets of
the estates.

Pursuant to an asset purchase agreement, the debtors are
seeking approval of the sale to AT&T for a purchase price
of $192,500,000.  The agreement also provides for a break
up fee of $6 million and $2 million in attorneys' fees and
costs.  The Committee states that the sale procedures will
not facilitate a fair auction process, and that it is
unrealistic to require bidders to compete with AT&T on such
an accelerated schedule.  The Committee complains that the
debtor did not file its schedules and statement of
financial affairs on time, and according to the AT&T sale
motion, SmarTalk's trade payables and related indebtedness
are estimated to be in excess of $40 million.  The
Committee states that this is clearly a complex asset sale
with unusually restrictive and burdensome provisions which
hamper the Committee's ability to understand and evaluate
the sale and any prospective purchaser from participating
in what should be a fair auction process.

In addition to the objection to the asset purchase
agreement, the Committee also objects to the granting of
interim approval of a DIP financing facility with AT&T.  
The debtors seek approval to enter into the AT&T Credit
Facility providing for $10 million in DIP
financing.  Among other things, the Committee objects to
the default provisions and the carve-out provisions as
being unreasonable.

The Indenture Trustee, Wilmington Trust Company,
representing the holders of certain Notes with an
outstanding principal amount of l$150 million plus accrued
interest, supports the Committee's objection to the motion
for the sale of assets, and states that the debtors have
not adequately demonstrated the need to proceed on the
extraordinarily short timetable, which together with the
requirements of the auction rules have the effect of
chilling the bidding.

The Indenture Trustee also objects to the motion for an
order granting interim approval of DIP financing facility
with AT&T, stating that it supports the objections of the
Committee, and adds that its provisions are unreasonable,
particularly  that if AT&T is outbid at the auction, the
debtors will have only 5 days to obtain alternative
financing.


WORLDWIDE DIRECT: Committee Objects To Special Counsel
------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Worldwide
Direct, Inc., et al., objects to the debtors' application
for authority to hire Dewey Ballantine, LLP.  The debtor
seeks to hire the firm to assist the debtors' bankruptcy
counsel in various corporate and tax matters in connection
with these cases.  The Committee asserts that there is a
close relationship between the Dewey Ballantine and the
debtors which is a conflict of interest with respect to
matters for which the debtors seek the firm's employment.  
The debtor s may sell their assets to AT&T or a higher
bidder, and Dewey Ballantine could provide advice regarding
the sale, however, as a creditor and shareholder of the
debtors, the firm and Robert Smith, a member of the firm,
have a pecuniary interest in the transaction.  The
Committee states that in addition to conflict issues it is
concerned about duplicative and unnecessary expenses to the
estate.
