Fair Value Measurements
10.  FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

Accounting standards establish a framework for measuring fair value. That framework provides a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurements).  The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:

Level 1:  Inputs to the valuation methodology are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets that the Company has the ability to access.

Level 2:  Significant other observable inputs other than Level 1 prices such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

Level 3:  Inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

The asset's or liability's fair value measurement level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Valuation techniques used need to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs.

There were no assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring or nonrecurring basis as of June 30, 2011 or December 31, 2010.

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, restricted short-term investments, accounts receivable, and accounts payable are recorded at or approximate fair value.  Management determined it is not practicable to estimate the fair value of the notes payable and long-term debt since these agreements contain unique terms, conditions, and restrictions, which were negotiated at arm's length, and there was no readily determinable similar instrument on which to base an estimate of fair value.
