The Island of Lanai Sold

Jump to last reply

We are blessed to have visited this island a couple of time. Love it. Love the people. Love hanging in Lanai City and talking story.

Well it's 89 old caretaker has passed to torch to a new neighbor, home owner. I trust he has the best interest in the island and its people with this purchase. Murdoch was bleeding 25 million a year protecting the island. Hopefully Ellison will continue to respect the aina and not bleed so much money.

Times are changing. I hope they don't change too much and the integrity of the island and the rural joy remains. But change will come. I cannot imagine Garden of the Gods with windmills. But electricity is needed in the middle of the Pacific.

Time will tell.
