The "NO TRESPASSING" sign hanging on the doors of the Enchanted Forest amusement park, Howard County's longtime children's attraction, will remain in place for at least another year -- leaving businesses in a nearby shopping center adrift without an anchor attraction.Officials of Towson-based JHP Development Inc., owner of the park and its namesake shopping center, said last week that the Ellicott City theme park will not reopen this year.Jeffrey Pechter -- who bought the park and its surrounding 32 acres along U.S. 40 in 1988 for more than $4.5 million -- declined to comment further on the park's status last week.
