PERRYSVILLE -- An ominous note was on my desk when I arrived at work: “Terry McMillen knows where Rattlesnake Village is. He can take you right to it. Phone number.”

Who left the note? Who was Terry? Never heard of that place. Guess I'll call.

Uncut gems

McMillen's "uncut gems" from Rattlesnake Gorge--are they diamonds???
