A former Botetourt County supervisor did not break any rules when he voted with the board to vacate a plot of land near his home.
That's the finding of special prosecutor Don Caldwell.
He says John W. Griffin did not violate conflict of interest rules in November 2003.
Griffin voted in a 3 to 2 decision to vacate an undeveloped county-owned right of way.
The land potentially connected property owned by Rainbow Forest Baptist Church with a road in the Brookfield subdivision.
Griffin owned property in that subdivision.

Kinsey Crane and Sign Company hung one of two six-by-six foot signs outside the museum. The other sign is displayed inside. When the building served as the N and W's passenger station, both signs hung along the railway concourse. History Museum of Western Virginia officials say when the concourse was demolished in 1991, the signs were placed in storage at the Virginia Museum of Transportation. That's where they stayed for 13 years. Norfolk Southern C-E-O David Goode had the signs restored before they were hung.

NASCAR could have suspended Stewart for Saturday night's Pepsi 400 at Daytona, but it also could quit running so many laps under caution. Stewart issued a statement, saying he took responsibility for his actions, but he stopped short of apologizing to Brian Vickers - the driver with whom he had on and off track problems. You may remember, Stewart was fined $60 thousand by both NASCAR and his sponsor Home Depot in 2002 for punching a photographer.
