    Carroll County High School agriculture teacher Joe Vessels recently was awarded the Kentucky Department of Conservation Teacher of the Year.

    Vessels, originally a Payneville native from Meade County, began working in Carroll County in 2007 after he was offered the agriculture teacher’s job at the high school. He said farming was engrained in him at an early age, when he lived with his parents and five brothers and sisters on a corn and soybean farm.

  • A lot of the time, stink bugs get a bad rap, and many producers associate this type of insect as one that is difficult to manage.  While some stink bugs found in Ken-tucky are indeed very harmful to agriculture production, there are some that are quite beneficial.
    So, what is a stink bug and why do we call it that?
    Stink bugs have piercing and sucking mouthparts and are in the order Hemiptera, which also includes assassin bugs and plant bugs.
