Just a question, if anyone knows the particulars: Do they lease the property and run it as their own business? Or are they hired as contract employees to run the Inn for the NPS? It is a travesty either way. ...but legally, they may have recourse if they lease and run as their own business.

Yea, sure, that’s the ticket! Good luck with that! The way the courts are ruling, they won’t even grant them “Standing”.

I don’t know - all I can find is this from Breitbart:

“Pisgah Inn receives no federal money, and according to owner Bruce O’Connell, who spoke exclusively to Breitbart News, “All we do is pay the government money. We don’t take anything from them.” It is located on the Blue Ridge Parkway, which was deemed a thoroughway and therefore left open by the National Parks Service. Nonetheless, earlier this week, the NPS moved to shut it down. Michael Litterst, chief spokesman for the Park Service, said, “We do not believe it is appropriate or feasible to have some parts of the system open while others are closed to the public.”

Apparently, the owner has been contacted by Michelle Bachman and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).
