TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --

Gov. Rick Scott had a photo opportunity with Smokey Bear and won Cabinet approval for his pick as Florida's top environmental regulator.

Those were the highlights of the new governor's first meeting
Wednesday with Florida's three Cabinet members, all newly elected
and all, like Scott, Republicans.

The panel voted unanimously to name Jacksonville shipyard
executive Herschel Vinyard as secretary of the Department of
Environmental Regulation.

Smokey was on hand for a resolution commemorating the 75th
anniversary of Florida's state forest system.

The brief agenda also included accepting the donation of a rural
lands protection easement in Gilchrist County and approving a
submerged lands lease for a marina in Fort Myers Beach.
