IN BRIEF: Rockdale County Board of Education voted 6-0, with member Don McKinney abstaining, to extend Superintedent Dr. Samuel King's contract by one year to run until June 2014. The board had previously voted in 2010 to extended King's contract by a year. McKinney declined to comment on why he abstained from the vote. "I don't feel like I should. Nothing against the superintendent," said McKinney. "I just didn't want to do it."
