Mr. Riddle, Sorry for your loss! Just hope that Debra Gottrell does not know Susana Martinez or Judge Robles.

They got the books back. What's the problem? Now a lot of money and time will be wasted to put the woman on probation. For what?

Yeah got the books back, a little late and outdated. The advertisers in this books expect that they are paying for advertising now not whenever this person decides to or not deliver them on a timely manner. And this is a crime whether you think so or not. She was paid to do a job and she had intent to not deliver them. This is called criminal intent. If we continue to think that acts like this our okay, obviously you do not see a problem with this act. But many do, and if things like this become "okay" than our society will continue to deteriorate as we keep seeing daily and what a world we will live in. Not one that most of us want to be in.

Mr. Riddle may not be completely accurate with his statements ,either he overproduced a half of million $ of books in 4 years "if everyone got one that was supposed to" which is a major loss for a business his size or his advertisors did not get the distribution promised them.Either way,he was bit hasty with his "squeaky clean" comment when no one solicited him concerning his honesty.

Riddle's book sux anyways...all these different phone books nowadays just waste paper and waste space. How many acres of trees have these useless books eaten up anyway? And for what?

Riddle ought to be ashamed of himself - he's part of the problem with his lousy phone books (that he's overproducing), not part of the solution.

Mr. Riddle? Well, I guess the JOKE is on him! Tee hee!

Like Bonar said, in this day and age printed telephone directories are a waste of paper, materials, and money. It's all online now, multiple websites. The last phone directory that was tossed onto my front porch went right back where it came from - I dumped it in front of their office and walked away. Phonebooks should be delivered only to those folks who actually want them.

Plus, this is Las Cruces. By the time the directories are designed, printed, bound, and delivered half the businesses have already closed anyway.

Not a problem. Just ask Robles for restitution. I'm sure Debra Gottrell is good for the $8,000.

Ohhh...I get it! If Larson had strapped a couple of old phone books around himself before he met with those dopers at the Coachlight 25 years ago, they would've stopped the bullets!

I remember hearing about Officer Larson getting killed when I was driving to Mayfield High School...my sophomore year...geez...

Hey, I agree so watch who you're calling an idiot. I'm just saying every time a Hispanic is in the newspaper for nefarious reasons, you ahve a BUNCH of people spouting off about their dislike of Hispanics. Hence , why I said it was the flip side. And why I ended my entire comment saying I was just calling those fools out.
