Crist's fitness council to hold first meeting in Tampa



Gov. Charlie Crist's recently formed Council on Physical Fitness, part of his efforts to make schoolchildren and older Floridians more healthy and active, will be in town Thursday and Friday for its first meetings.

Thursday the council meets from 3:30 to 6 p.m. at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training facility, 3302 W. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., and public comments will be heard from 5:40 to 5:55 p.m.

Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.the council meets at the Doubletree Hotel Tampa, 4500 West Cypress Street.

Maybe the council can talk about how schools are actually fulfilling that new 30-minutes-a-day P.E. requirement championed by Crist....
