Governor takes a Scott-cation



Republican Gov. Rick Scott is in the midst of his first vacation since spending a week at his Montana hideway this summer.

Scott is spending the week at his Naples home with family, which now includes his week-old grandson, August. Scott told us he'll be spending part of his Thanksgiving Day serving dinner at the St. Matthew's House homeless center.

Scott, who prides himself on long hours and seven-day weeks, does have some meetings scheduled, spokeswoman Amy Graham said. Call it a Scott-cation.

"A little time off for him is only working a half day," she said.
