From the KFGO radio station:
Johnny Butten, recognized as the fastest banjo player in the world in the Guiness Book of World Records has had his visa application by The Department of Homeland Security denied.
Butten who lives in Hitterdahl with his wife and children was told he must leave the country by Saturday because his application for a "Green Card" visa was rejected, and his current Visa runs out on Saturday.
The Government no longer recognizes the Guiness Book of World Records as a major award, part of the requirement in getting a visa. That award was recognized when he recieved his current visa 3 years ago.
Butten has lived in this area for three years and besides his musical entertaiment he is a member of the Hitterdahl Fire Department...
