Impressed with Turtleman
The day I met the Turtleman was absolutely the best day of my life. I’ll have to admit I was very skeptical at first. So many people I have met have let me down.
But I can assure you he is the real deal. He reminds me so much of my dad, who died when he was 49. I have not found anyone I have fully trusted or loved so much since then. He loved the outdoors and was the best role model a kid could have.
I truly believe that God has sent us a real true disciple. I owe him my life because he is the first person that I can say has really helped me for over 20 years. Maybe now I can be somebody, and I want to follow in his footsteps.
To spend one-on-one time with Turtleman is heavenly, and something you will never forget.

Trumpet concert a must-see event
At Farmers National Bank, we whole-heartedly support the arts, dating back many years when then President Gene Spragens, my father, brought outstanding musical groups to Lebanon for free performances open to the public.
On many occasions, the performing artists appeared in the schools of Marion County visiting with children of all ages, inspiring our young people to become more interested in the arts.
We continue that concern for supporting the arts to this day and we wish to recommend an event this Saturday evening (June 8) at St. Augustine Church when two of the finest trumpeters in the world will be performing.
The event is a performance of the Kentucky Baroque Trumpets led by Lebanon’s own Don Johnson with guest trumpeters John Foster from Australia and Friedermann Immer from Germany.
The 7 p.m. concert is open to the public. Tickets are $10 for this memorable concert of Johnson’s group which was featured in the Stephen Spielberg movie “Lincoln” and which recently performed in Washington, D.C. at the Smithsonian.
We are looking forward to seeing you Saturday evening at St. Augustine!

Enterprise better informs taxpayers
I would like to compliment you and express my appreciation for the recent  series of articles on special districts in Marion County. By explaining what  these special districts do and naming the individuals responsible for  managing them, taxpayers are better informed about what goes on in our community. Those of us entrusted with leadership should be held accountable 
by those taxpayers who pay the bills. I believe shining light on these  individuals serves to recognize what good people we have running the special 
districts and the important work they do, usually for little, if any 
Again, I appreciate you for doing these articles to better inform the taxpayers of 
Marion County. I urge all citizens to continue to stay informed about these 
special districts.
