HONOLULU — Hawaii has long been known as a tropical paradise, but in recent years another image has intruded into the state’s carefully crafted one of idyllic beaches and relaxing resorts: homelessness.
The number of homeless people has grown in recent years, leaving the state with 487 homeless per 100,000 people, the nation’s highest rate per capita, above New York and Nevada, according to federal statistics.
Many of the homeless, however, defy the stereotype of the mentally ill or drug addicted. They are families, with men and women who work full-time jobs. They are struggling to get a foothold in a place with a high cost of living and low wages.

In that moment, she realized how much she wanted to live.
Even in death, Divine — the larger-than-life drag queen made famous in John Waters’ films — lives on.
His Towson grave site, on a tree-shaded knoll overlooking a suburban grocery store and a mega-mall, carries on the flamboyant memory of the drag queen, born Harris Glenn Milstead. Monday, October 19, 2015 would have been his 70th birthday.
ANNAPOLIS, April 4, 1968 – Governor Agnew closed Bowie State College tonight “until I find that conditions there have returned to normal.”
The Governor acted two hours after State Police, on his orders, arrested 227 of the students and a civil rights leader who has refused to leave the State House by the 5:00 p.m. closing time.
The peaceful arrests of more than one third of the full-time student body of the predominately African-American college came after the students demanding to see the Governor and discuss their complaints about decrepit dormitories and underpaid faculty, sat down in the State House lobby, opened textbooks and conducted a 3 1/2 hour “study-in.”
