Wiper Sleeve the creation of a Moon resident who has entered the product in a competition that he hopes will lead to shelf space at the giant retailer.
Jack Rees said the idea was so simple he should have thought of it sooner. One winter day Rees watched his wife slide plastic grocery bags over her car's windshield wipers to prevent ice from building up on them. "And so I started to do the same thing, but plastic bags didn't fit on my [vehicle's] wipers," he said. So instead, Rees, a 59-year-old retired postal worker from Moon, bought some fabric from a local store to craft his own wiper cover — and Wiper Sleeve was born. "Think of it as a sleeve that you would slide up over your arm, but instead, you put it on your wiper," Rees said. "It's a very simple product." The Wiper Sleeve is now one of more than 4,000 products in the running in Walmart's Get on the Shelf competition. …

Warm weather allows crews to complete more construction work done.
Tuesday, December 27, 2011
The unseasonably warm weather this month hasn’t just been a nice way to avoid chilly winter temperatures. It’s also giving construction crews a chance to catch up on roadwork before the heavy snow falls. PennDOT spokesman Jim Struzzi said work has ended on major paving projects, but crews still are able to perform work on bridges, install guard rails guiderails and put up signs. “It’s been a great December for contractors and PennDOT to get projects done by the end of the year,” he said. “It’s more construction in December than in recent memory, and that’s good because we had a very wet spring, and this lets them wrap things up.” Even when temperatures are warmer than usual, rainy days still are not an ideal time for workers to be out on …
