Cherry Hill Golf Course: Municipal bloodsucker
Bad enough the golf course produces more red ink than a Chinese flag factory, but now they're sucking the lifeblood from other departments.
Because the foundering LSSE Recreation Empire is down ten$ of thousand$ they can't afford to spruce up the golf course, so the Town Manager orders the DPW Parks and Recreation Department to drop everything, run out to North Amherst and get the business ready for its Grand Opening (in two days.)
Forget the town common, the ball fields, or the soccer fields; in the People's Republic of Amherst when a White Elephant bellows--you run!
On a losing course at the half way point
