Ellison is every body’s boss & landlord –so no alternatives;
Gives little explanation for actions
No good way to stay on Ellison’s good side;

Ellison wants to turn Lanai into a sustainable enterprise;
Locals no longer take him at his word;
Looks like Lanai becoming Play Ground for Rich;

Ellison has spent $90B to improve the Island;
$300 M purchase came with 98% of Lanai’s 90,000 acres, +
Plus two Four Seasons resorts
