The reward fund for information on the disappearance of two children after a deadly house fire in Shelbyville last year has been increased to $2,000. The family of the late Leon and Mollie McClaran, along with friends and neighbors, have raised the reward for information on Chloie Leverette and Gage Daniel. The children were last seen before a fire at the McClaran's Kingdom Road home on Sept. 23, 2012. The McClarans, the children's grandparents, were killed in the fire.
"While it was first thought the children perished in the fire, no remains were ever identified as belonging to the children and there is still hope that they may not have been in the house at the time of the fire," Bobby Maxwell, co-administrator of the fund along with Dean Felder, said in a press release Friday. Information should be reported to 1-800-TBI FIND (1-800-824-3463).

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
