Homemade signs cover Doug Harding's front door on Wednesday, Mar. 23, 2016. Harding says he has had to keep some former homeless friends away who he feels are trying to take advantage of his new home. He recently kicked out a woman who was staying with him because she would be loud in the middle of the night and he didn't want to risk upsetting his neighbors and getting evicted. After decades of homelessness, Harding moved into his first apartment at the start of the year. ©BENJAMIN ZACK/Standard-Examiner, 2016
