The cafe that he started cooking at was the Plaza Cafe and not the Pizza Cafe. Also, Ben Bolch was needing a man to help him run Sacramento Motors, he asked Charlie Herrell who would be the best man for the job. Charlie Herrell advise Ben that Jimmie Randall would be a good man for the job.

Jimmie Randall and Tommie Herrell were best friends in high school. They both talk about how they are self-made men. They both had a lot of good men helping, advising and steering them in the right direction. They do not except that many helped them in life but many did.

I'm trying to understand why this article was written and published.
Not trying to belittle Jimmie Randall.
Somehow this sounds like the closing arguments during the punishment phase of a trial.
Is Randy going to profile other members of the Shifty 50?
There are other people who have been sucessful here without being in that group.

Just wondering..........
my sentiments exactly

Jimmie Randall is one of the most malicious and cut throat men to walk to earth. He happened to be in the right place at the right time, which is the only reason he has experienced such "success." He is a selfish and self-centered individual who only cares about how he can make himself look good—and cares nothing about who he hurts while “rising to the top.” I find it sad that Alamogordo Daily News has nothing better to publish. This shows a true lack of journalism and professionalism, which is sadly not a shock.

I've known him for years.. I'd love to hear how he's wronged you! I've seen him help tons of people, but he cannot help everyone..

Funny to see this in the paper. The lawyer for Sunbaked Biscuits writing a bobber about the guy @ Alamogordo Federal who pushed the scam loans through his loan committee leaving the taxpayers holding the bag. I suppose Mr. Burroughs owes him one.

And Randall was not on the Boa of Bank 34 in 2000. It wasn't until right after the cookie caper that Alamogordo Federal changed its name.

It takes a special kind of guy to use fraud to become a success. It is hard to imagine a guy who did what he did to the city conducts any other business more ethically.

Yep, you are correct. Some of the most honest people in America are car dealers!
