Do it yourself -- it ain't that hard to put in insulation, storm windows, weatherstripping, et al, and to save up for the big expenses like new appliances.

If you have to borrow money to do this, you have bigger problems. Financial discipline to start.

And the proposed program will cost the rest of us through higher electric tariffs.

No. If I need to improve my home I'll do it with my resources. I don't need a bank or government to improve my home.

If there is one thing homeowners need it more loans! Government to the rescue.

I do it myself, thank you very much.

When you buy a house, make sure you will have enough money each month to set aside for repairs and improvements as they become necessary. Otherwise, rent and let the landlord take care of it.

The LJW is going into overdrive to try to cover for ol' Sebileus' appointees.

Ding, ding, ding! I changed the text to clarify, though.

You've got to be kidding! Invest in upgrades with a 20 year payback? And regarding the environment, I'll begin caring when I see our governments starting to care. When cities put up street lights every hundred feet and install untimed, gas guzzling stop lights at every corner, any thing we can do fades to total insignificance by comparison.

Right now 47% of the voters (of this poll) have said they would not take a loan. That is good to see. I guess personal responsibility and self-reliance are still in vogue in Kansas.

THAT MEANS THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY IT BACK. ME AND LOAN JUST WOULDN'T HAPPEN...
