.....No money in Tanglewood:

"The expenses at Tanglewood Park are expected to exceed its revenues by nearly $2 million this year, according to the 2006-07 budget that the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners approved last month.

"That deficit would be its largest since the county took over the park's operations in 2000....

"Doug Joldersma, the park's general manager, defended Tanglewood and said it is unreasonable to expect a park to be profitable. Tanglewood generates more revenue than many other state and county parks.....

"The emphasis of the park should be on providing services to the community, not on financial profitability, Joldersma said."

I guess some things just aren't meant to generate a profit...parks, bus systems.....
