Wouldn't "Cornwall Lake" or "Lake Cornwall" have been more appropriate? Naming a lake after the town or village where it is located is common practice and quickly tells a traveler or visitor exactly where the body of water is located.

I suspect that this name will attract pedophiles to the area who have totally misunderstood the name and can't spell.

A minister won? The fix was in...Mike Folmer and his illegal PAC must be behind this horrible miscarriage of justice! The minister must be working with a school of fish who are some of the biggest donors to Folmers recent campaign.(and the reason he is pushing SB 1) I'm surprised he didn't choose the name "Constitution Lake"!! When will it ever end.......

There is something to be said for humor that does not need to be explained.

I will give a 'C' for effort, though....
