Renowned Lion CB Willis introduced our speakers today, Michael Manuel and Larry C. Timbs, Jr. who have written a book about a place that existed near Butler and Elizabethton before both towns went under water in the forties. The title of their book is Fish Springs, Beneath the Surface. This book answers the question, “Could someone commit murder with a rattlesnake?” Go to www.fishspringsnovel.com for the answer or at least how you get the answer. Thanks Lion Willis for two great speakers.
