This year’s ornament is the sixth in the series, which depicts historical elements of Trigg County. This #6/2004 release is an inspiring depiction of Trigg County enthroned in a gold band which links the five points of a large graphic star. The large star centers on the county’s plot and a small star imposed on its center (which represents the county’s scope before it became a Kentucky County in 1820).
The space between the centered star and the larger five star points represents the scope and scale of Trigg County’s growth and development during the past 200 years. This expansion has led to a significant increase in attractive elements, and hence illumination, which will continue to increase as the "star" develops into a "beacon".
During this Christmas season, as we reflect upon the Trigg County Star, we see our Homeland in the Continental USA Heartland, as a beacon of light shared with our great USA Country in the land from "Sea to Shining Sea".
We see the preservation of our Homeland, a real keystone of the Heartland. Trigg County has shared itself by providing portions of its landscape for such outstanding development as twin heartland lakes, Lake Barkley Kentucky State Resort Park, many marinas/lake access and lakeside residential areas, Land Between The Lakes, with its long ridge, landscape has national acclaim as a unique recreation and environmental development, and a portion of Trigg County’s southern landscape, which became Fort Campbell. This is an outstanding development of the USA’s military defense and training system that has world-wide acclaim.
Trigg Countians and their friends should be very proud of their Homeland and know their "star" will shine during the holidays, and continue to expand tomorrow, and its "beacon" will shine forever.
