The DHHS and OSA are urging Medicare beneficiaries not to provide personal information to anyone representing themselves as a "Medicare" or "government" worker if contacted by phone, mail, or in person in exchange for a $250 Medicare rebate check. These one-time rebates are automatically mailed to Medicare recipients when they reach the Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage gap, also known as the 'donut hole.'
For further information, call the national Medicare office at (800) 633-4227. In Michigan, call MMAP at (800) 803-7174.
The Michigan Voter Information Center also allows voters to check whether they are registered to vote, print a sample ballot, find their polling place and locate their local clerk.

Over the past few months we've been hard at work on a new sorting system, which you can now see through the glass doors on the way to the Children's section.
Items returned through the outdoor book drop are identified and checked back in, then the belts and rollers put them in the appropriate bins with others of their type. This means fewer hands have to touch items to get them back on the shelves.
This, along with other improvements, equates to faster turn-around of items, getting you the books and more you want - quicker than ever.
FYI - Over 70 million copies of the books in this beloved have been sold since it was first published in 1992. It has been translated into 31 languages and is sold in 31 countries. Kids, parents, and teachers all know that the adventures of Jack and Annie instill of a love of reading in young readers everywhere.
Here's your chance to log-in on William Shatner because the William Shatner Blogathon takes off on July 5.
Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.
The rules are simple: Blog about William Shatner. Doesn't matter what you blog about; anything that bears the golden touch of the Shatman is fair game.
Here's why you should:
- It saves time — one-click search wherever you are
- It saves money — search CPL instead of Amazon
- It's cool — get suggestions as you type (with jacket images in IE8!)
For each level you will read writers from Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, North America (includes Central America) and South America within 2010. Each level becomes progressively more difficult (i.e. more books to read to satisfy the requirements). Jakobsen provides a wonderful list of reading suggestions for each continent.
