OPINION

PER CURIAM:


These consolidated appeals involve two orders of the district court. Our consideration of the oral argument, the record and the district court's opinions in these cases discloses that these appeals are without merit. Accordingly, we affirm each of these orders on the reasoning of the district court. Bray v. Burford, No. CA-89-162-E (N.D.W. Va. Sept. 27, 1990) and In re: Snowshoe Co., debtor: Snowshoe Co. v. Steptoe and Johnson, No. CA-87-148-E (N.D.W. Va. Nov. 30, 1990) (single memorandum opinion also involving consolidated cases No. CA-85-75-E and No. CA-88-84-E).

AFFIRMED.
