Mark your calendar: Redistricting meetings scheduled throughout the state

This summer, the Florida Senate and House are hosting more than two dozen public hearings throughout the state on redistricting. The full schedule is on the Senate's redistricting web site.

The meetings start June 20 in Tallahassee, then head to Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach and Panama City on June 21 and 22 before hitting Jacksonville and Central Florida in July. There's a meeting in Miami on August 17, Tampa on August 29, and Largo on August 30.

Web pages hosted by the House and Senate have information about redistricting and about how you can create and submit your own redistricting maps, something that could be fun to do when looking for a break from Angry Birds and Words With Friends.
