That is great news Harry. I have one question - was the credit debt, credit cards? Normally, those just charge off without being paid.

It is really a credit to you.


I read an article about identity theft of the deceased and it said that surviving family members aren't responsbile for any of their debts as long as their name isn't also on the account. I'm not sure if that applies just to credit cards or other things too, but it's good that they were paid off just to be safe.

When did Titan Sports purchase the WCW?  Or was Capitol Sports?  Was Capitol a subsidiary of Titan and where did World Wrestling Foundation fit in.  Is the new NWA the old NWA?

Thanks in advance.

Heres the deal.  I was talking to Sullivan and he told me that the two of you were butting heads about the time the WWF stole his internet writings about the Rick Flerr plane crash. He was of the opinion that ReDneCK TaZ was wrong about several things and that you and he were out to prove him wrong (historically).

By the way the S&W Board of Directors has designated those funds to a Highspots/Kickstarter documentary on the history of pro wrestling in New Hampshire in your honor.

Ports,

That's not correct. Tell Sullivan he's a liar and I will be pursuing legal action for slandering my good name like Loo Thez did to markmadden!

Stanley Blackburn, 80, dies 11/21/97

Stanley Blackburn, 80, dies

Longtime business/civic leader is remembered as `patriarch'

Stanley Blackburn of Amarillo, a longtime business and civic leader, died Thursday, Nov. 20, 1997. He was 80.

Blackburn had been a lifelong resident of Amarillo. He graduated from Amarillo High School and attended New Mexico Military Institute at Roswell, N.M.

"He was an interesting fella. He thoroughly enjoyed life," said Tol Ware, chairman of Amarillo National Bank and Blackburn's longtime friend.

Blackburn grew up in his father's business, Blackburn Bros. Clothiers. He began working with the firm in 1939.

He joined the Army Air Corps in 1942 and served as a pilot with the Air Transport Command in the United States, Canada and South America until 1946. Following World War II, he returned to an executive position in the family business when he was elected vice president. He became president of the firm in 1951.

After selling his interest in the business, Blackburn became an investor with real estate, banking and ranching interests.

Jose Rael, who works in the insurance business, had known Blackburn for about 25 years.

"He was very interested in the civic community," Rael said.

When asked what Rael will remember about Blackburn, Rael said, "In my mind, I'll remember limpid blue eyes that sparkle. I'll remember his good humor; he was always willing to joke."

Blackburn served as an Amarillo city commissioner from 1959 to 1961.

He had been a member of Polk Street United Methodist Church, the Amarillo Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Amarillo Senior Chamber of Commerce. He was a past chairman of the Retail Merchants Committee and served on the board of Downtown Merchants.

He also was a member of the Chamber of Commerce Merchants Committee, the Amarillo Club and the Palo Duro Club. He was a charter president of the Amarillo Country Club and had been active in the Elks Lodge, the Optimists and the Lions Club.

Blackburn was elected to the board of directors of the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce in 1956 and became the president in 1960.

He was a representative of the Commissioner of Labor as boxing and wrestling commissioner. He had been president of the American Wrestling Association for more than a decade and also had been a personal adviser to many wrestlers across the United States.

Local wrestler Terry Funk had known Blackburn since Funk was 4 years old and remembers him as a patriarch.

"After my father passed away, any time I had a problem or needed judgment, I went to Stanley," Funk said.

"I will remember him for being a person that I could go to for fatherly advice for the past 25 years. I could go to him for the truth, whether it hurt me or not."

Blackburn married Marian McClarney in 1940 at Clovis, N.M. He was preceded in death a son, Rip Blackburn, in 1981.

Survivors include his wife; a daughter, Lynne Kralj of Austin; a son, John Blackburn of Amarillo; and four grandchildren.

Memorial services will be at 2 p.m. Saturday in Blackburn-Shaw Funeral Directors, Memorial Chapel, Fifth Avenue and Pierce Street, with Dr. Jim Garrett of Polk Street United Methodist Church officiating. Cremains will be entombed at Llano Mausoleum.

The family will be at 4415 Olsen Blvd. They request memorials to the Juvenile Diabetes Association.

Well, I guess with Blackburn dead, the only step available is a meeting of the S&W HOF and mod committee in Las Vegas to decide just how to honor Harry with the proceeds.

I don't think Harry will like any of my "Suggestions", and the money we would need to extract from the proceeds for bail.
