Trigg County did not fare so well in the recent University of Wisconsin county by county nationwide health survey.
Trigg ranks 85th out of 120 Kentucky in overall health. One of the major factors dragging Trigg County down is that 31-percent of surveyed adults are smokers, far more than the national average of 14-percent and over the state average of 27-percent.
Another negative is that 26-percent of Trigg Countians lack easy access to healthy foods, compared to 7-percent across Kentucky. 48-percent of adults in Trigg have some college education, less than the statewide average of 55-percent and national average of 68-percent.
On the positive side, Trigg County has a higher high school graduation rate than the state average at 83-percent and the teen birth rate is also below the state average.

Stanley was arrested and charged with burglary and criminal mischief.
