It was the April 28 meeting of Boyle County Fiscal Court and on the agenda was a proclamation. When I spotted it, I thought, 'Woop-de-doo, another local government meeting, another proclamation. " But as it turns out, this wasn't one of those "April is Clean Your Gutters Month" or "May is Pluck Your Eyebrows Month. " This proclamation was not a passive resolution but an active call to arms - and legs and feet and about every other part of the body where a muscle group exists. This proclamation declared May as "Exercise is Medicine" month, and I should have realized when I saw the man who was asking the court to pass the proclamation that the people behind it meant business.
