About 4:30 PM today, I was on the bridge that crosses Wilbur Lake in
Carter County, TN and was treated to an overflight by a mature Bald
Eagle. White head and tail were plainly visible with out binoculars.
Great sight.

Also, I found the following on a website for Rivergate Restoration
Products in Soddy-Daisy, TN in response to the origin of the name of

"Yes, Virginia, there really is a Soddy-Daisy. It is a small town just
north of Chattanooga, TN.  It lies between the foot of the mountain and
Chickamauga Lake. It is the melding of two even smaller towns (Soddy and
Daisy, of course). The name "Soddy" is thought to derive from the
Cherokee Indian word "Tsati" which means "Homeplace". "Daisy" was the
wife of an early coal miner."
