Hawaii Island’s homeless population is growing at an alarming rate.

    WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton faces a strategic choice. She can concentrate on closing off Donald Trump’s potential openings with the white working class.

    For just over a year, “We the People” have been inundated with political campaign rhetoric.
