    ELKHART — Indiana Rep. Tim Neese is again sponsoring his Kick-a-Can program, meant to help low-income homeowners in Elkhart wanting to paint the outside of their homes.

    The program is funded through profits from a recycling project, other contributions and paint provided by Sherwin-Williams and Rollie Williams Paint Spot of Elkhart.

    To be eligible, program participants must live in the Elkhart city limits, own the home or garage to be painted and be unable to purchase paint themselves. For additional information, contact Neese, who has sponsored the program since 1988, at 293-3894.

    In related news, Neese, who isn’t seeking re-election and is finishing up his last term as a state representative, has been reappointed to the advisory committee of the Indiana Recycling Market Development Board. The board approves grants and loans for projects involving use of recycled materials and Neese has been a member of the advisory committee for 12 years, he said in a press release.
