  • PREP FOOTBALL: Albert's big defensive plays spark LaRue County by Shelby (08/28)

    Two weeks into the season, the LaRue County Hawks are looking for a No. 3 option on offense. However, No. 45 is turning out to be a No. 1 type of playmaker on the other side of the ball.

    The Hawks’ dynamic senior backfield duo of Drew Newberry and Cody Thompson shined again at home Friday night, but it was 5-foot-8, 145-pound senior linebacker Taylor Albert who sparked LaRue County to a 27-24 win over the Shelby County Rockets with a fumble recovery that set up the winning touchdown and two sacks – including one to end the game.

    We have been having wonderful weather lately. Our garden is beginning to need some rain. Perhaps we will get some soon. We thought a racoon had taken to our corn, and set a trap, only to catch an opossum. So I guess it was the opossum eating our corn, as we haven’t had any bothered since. We picked beans Monday evening and on Tuesday I canned 7 quarts and 5 pints. They were so nice, had very few that had been eaten on by insects. But we stick them with tobacco stalks, which I think helps to keep the insects away.
