I called three businesses.
The first one was High Attitude ( Bar restaurant ) they didn't even know it was going on .
The second one was the family dollar and they had no clue it was going on
On the third caller I got a nice lady at Mountain Magic (gift shop) who tried to be informative but only told me things we already knew. But she did take down my number and promised to pass on any information she receives.
Let's see what happens .

This incident started on Thursday morning (9:48 am per Facebook) and folks had enough time to update the observatory Facebook and website pages announcing the indefinite closure (see www.sunspot.solar).

She said she cannot comment on the specifics of the security issue.
“The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy who manages the facility is addressing a security issue at this time,” Lifson said. “We have decided to vacate the facility at this time as precautionary measure. It was our decision to evacuate the facility.”
