Something in W.Va. Actually Not Named for Robert C. Byrd.

From the Associated Press:

After waiting three years for U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd to suggest a name, the Little Kanawha Conservation District board decided to go ahead and name the new lake at North Bend State Park.

The newly dubbed North Fork Hughes River Lake and Dam provides flood control and a water supply for Ritchie County, as well as recreation.

I don't believe it: Did our senior senator, for whom I don't think we have yet named a lake, decline an opportunity to attach his name to a public facility?
