I went out the other night to hear a speaker at the NCTC . She was local -- a USDA researcher from the Kearneysville Ag Exp Station -- and co chair of the national stink bug research team. As the newspaper reported this morning, I wasn't the only one interested...in fact it was a record crowd -- nearly 400 people.! Local farmer Allan Balliett got a recording of the talk from Mark Madison of the NCTC and posted it on Vimeo (below).
