It’s the red kettle season in Kihei

Howard Miyake of Kahului strums a tune while manning a Salvation Army kettle outside the Kihei Safeway Store on Wednesday afternoon. Miyake said he was “trying to help the Salvation Army and working with the Christmas spirit for the holidays. I try to create a good rhythm with the world and to revitalize the County of Maui.” Not every song he plays is a Christmas tune. “I play oldies, I guess you call it classical contemporary.”
