Skip to comments.The 2013 Battle of Yorktown -- restaurant owner defies feds

I am now occupying the building at this time.
And with that one decision restaurant owner Glenn Helseth joined the ranks of Americans whove decided to defy the strong-arm tactics of the National Park Service.
For the past 11 years Helseth and his wife have operated the Carrot Tree Kitchens Restaurant inside the historic Cole Digges House in Yorktown, Va.
At least 20 of Helseth's longtime employees are facing unemployment. They cant make rent and some are faced with choosing between buying food or buying medicine.
The National Park Service owns and operates the building. So when the government shut down on Oct. 1, the Helseths were given 48 hours to pack up and move out.
The couple also owns a restaurant on Jamestown Island. They had to close that restaurant after the National Park Service blocked access to the island.

Who the hell are they to close our land?
More people do need to resist. Maybe a park ranger spending the night in his own handcuffs will help remind them.
I think they want a revolt or insurrection so that they can declare martial law. I wonder if they know what kind of fire they’re playing with. There’s more than 100 million of us and we’re so heavily armed it’s ridiculous. Who do they think bought the vast majority of those 90 million firearms and billions of rounds since November 2008?
The Park Service is in for some serious retribution...
I’d be surprised if they’re not merged into some other agency...
The Department of Mines and Minerals comes to mind.
As I keep hearing about all the places the government is closing I am thinking the government owns too much that should change.
That is awesome
how about the hemorrhoid department
what does his contract say?
I will be on the National Mall visiting the war memorials paid with private money, and the blood of our military. Stand aside Park Rangers.
The NPS needs to be dissolved and the properties distributed to the respective States.
He and others need to read their contracts carefully and get an attorney on a contingency basis if there is a case and sue the living crap out of the government.
I can’t see how this could be allowed under the lease terms. It certainly isn’t force majure. Obastard may think he is god but I believe a higher power will put him in his place eventually.
I think they’re counting on us having a conscience and an inability to kill a man.
The NPS needs to be prosecuted for civil rights violations.
My post to the “Veterans’ Affairs office to lay of 7,000”
“This is the administrations chance to totally ruin the individual lives of as many people as he can. The problem is getting the people mad at the conservatives. They want to set up the marxist revolution scenario.
They may have had this planned for a while.”
I hope this brings the opposite result.
The upper echelon of the NPS needs to spend more time looking over their collective shoulder.
Most of us, perhaps. But ALL of us? Would you bet your life on that?
Glenn Helspeth is a putz!
He blames the U.S.Congress for the shutdown. Claims they are playing politics.
Get a grip on reality, Glenn. It is the liar in the White House, BHO2, who is causing you grief.
