Subject: It's official! Fayetteville Woodpeckers
Just announced! The Red-cockaded Woodpecker just gave its name to the new
minor league baseball team based in Fayetteville. Because the RCW is an
Endangered species and is numerous at Fort Bragg, this species is quite
well known in Fayetteville and Cumberland County.

Yep -- for better or worse -- the team name will often be shortened to just
"Peckers". I fear for the worse.
