A Maui County construction and maintenance crew, including (from left) Chris Kinzle, Richard Okuda, Alvin Corden and Myron Borge, sets up a Christmas tree in front of the Kalana O Maui Building in Wailuku Wednesday, alongside a menorah that was placed there last week. The tree was erected after the American Civil Liberties Union noted that the menorah alone on county grounds was an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.
