For Dennis E. Love, a Marin County entrepreneur who competes with local phone companies in maintaining telephone wiring and equipment in homes and small businesses, it was a case of deja vu : When Love opened his new edition of the Pacific Bell phone book on Wednesday, the listing for his company, the Extension Connection, was missing. Wrong Number Printed It was missing from the Yellow Pages. It was missing from the White Pages. And an additional, extra-cost Yellow Pages listing was missing too. His name also was missing from the Novato phone book distributed by GTE California, which provides local phone service to the town where Love maintains his home--and the company for which he had such ambitious, nationwide plans just three years ago. And that's where the deja vu came in. Two years ago, when his fledgling enterprise was just getting off the ground, Pacific Bell Directory printed a wrong phone number for the Extension Connection.
