Lava from Kilauea Volcano incinerated two homes in this rural Hawaii Island community Wednesday and was menacing at least four others. Authorities said that many more houses could be destroyed. Residents of 59 of the 125 houses have been ordered to evacuate, and civil defense officials said those remaining should be ready to pack their belongings and get out within 72 hours.

It is the Internet rumor that has been discredited but will not die: President Obama is not a naturally born U.S. citizen and therefore constitutionally is not qualified to serve. This week, months after the allegations first cropped up on the Web and talk radio, the White House and Hawaii officials addressed the rumor -- with the state's health director saying that she had reviewed the records in question and found that they verified Obama was born in Hawaii.

Honolulu Mayor Frank F. Fasi is known as a maverick politician who is not afraid to stoke the fires of controversy. And this week he has lived up to his reputation. In an effort to stem a wild home-buying spree by Japanese investors in the city's luxury neighborhoods in recent months, Fasi sent a bill to the state Legislature seeking to prevent foreign investors from buying residential property throughout Hawaii.

The simple grass hut isn't so simple anymore. The thatched Hawaiian hut known as the hale can require tens of thousands of dollars, a months-long wait and a builder with special certification. Still, the structure is experiencing a rebirth in Hawaii. Local building codes for the huts have been eased and demand is growing. A new class of specially trained hale builders -- billed as the first such group in the world -- recently graduated, eager to dot such indigenous housing across the islands.

Kamaki Kanahele's lush beachfront property here is just the slice of paradise many conjure up when dreaming of Hawaii. What few could envision is the land's price tag: Thanks to a state homesteading program offered to native Hawaiians, Kanahele pays only $1 a year to lease it. But that may soon change.

Today, the south wall of the Energy Department's fortress-like Washington headquarters is a fitting symbol for an agency that itself has never quite established an identity: a 32,100-square-foot blank slab of concrete. Shortly before leaving office, however, the Clinton administration awarded a Chicago architectural firm a contract to explore converting the wall into something quite different: a vast solar array that would provide much of the building's heat and power.

It's not cheap to live on Honolulu's Kahala Avenue. At least, it's not supposed to be. A "tear-down," as one broker cheerfully described it, is on the market for $2.1 million on the palm-lined, oceanfront thoroughfare just east of Diamond Head. A vacant three-lot plot on the beach sold this month for $34 million, a record price for a piece of residentially zoned land here. So how about living in a five-bedroom beach house for $150 a month?
