Canon Law Resource

Amy Hereford has been posting and updating the Canon Law Wiki for about 5 years. It provides a basic online resource for canon law.
A wiki is an online platform that allows multiple editors to contribute to the project. Currently it boasts about a thousand visitors each month from around the globe. Each flag on the map at the right indicates that visitors from that country have used the resource.
You may wish to use the resource the next time you have a canon law question. Writers are also welcome and invited to share their expertise.

Medicare Open Enrollment

Medicare open enrollment this year is from October 15-December 7. This is for any change to your Part D drug plan or your Medicare Advantage plan (if you have one) which will then become effective on 01/01/12. You may have noticed an increase in advertisements for plans since the open enrollment dates were moved up this year. 

Last year, a couple of the Part D drug plans decided to opt out of the Medicare program altogether. If you should receive a letter from your plan stating that they are doing that this year, you may choose another plan.
