Jennifer & Adrianna Wix are still missing after 15 years. Reported missing by Jennifer’s mother, Kathy Casey-Nale on March 27, 2004. The investigation led deputies to the Robertson County home of Jennifer’s boyfriend, Joey Benton, where Jennifer and Adrianna had been living with Benton in an outbuilding on the property. The case was recently classified as a homicide due to newly discovered information by the Robertson County Sheriff’s office.
The TBI is also assisting in this investigation and encourages anyone with information about Jennifer or Adrianna’s whereabouts to call 1-800-TBI-FIND or the Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.
Everyone is invited to participate in this annual chain of hope ride to help bring awareness to the case.

Jeremy’s Egg (An Easter Story)
A third grader by the name of Jeremy was afflicted with Down’s syndrome. He had a great deal of difficulty with instructions from his teacher and frequently did his assignments wrong and was often a distraction in class. The parents were called in and the teacher explained that Jeremy really needed to be in a special school.
The trouble was that it was hours away to such a school and Jeremy loved his teacher and his classmates. Near Easter time the students were each given a brightly colored and empty plastic egg. They were instructed to take them home and bring them back the next day with something in them that reminded them of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus and the new life that we are promised.
In turn each child shared their egg and its treasure hidden inside. On little girl had placed a small cross inside her egg and another had found a butterfly cocoon to put in her egg. One of the boys had put a picture of a newly born puppy in his. Lastly Jeremy was called upon to bring his egg up. The teacher held her breath at what he might have done with his assignment. When he clumsily opened his egg it was totally empty.
The teacher was embarrassed for him and she had known all along that he would make a mess of things. In a rather harsh tone, she exclaimed to Jeremy that his egg was empty and that it held nothing. How could an empty egg say anything about Easter? Jeremy’s answer was devastating. He told the teacher and the class who were by now snickering in their sleeves; “My egg is empty because on Easter morning the Tomb of Jesus Christ was also empty.”
A few weeks later Jeremy grew very sick and in a short time he passed away. The entire third-grade class came to the funeral and placed 19 plastic colored eggs on top of Jeremy’s casket—-all of them empty.

Letter To The Editor – (submitted)
Years ago, I thought that to get to heaven I just needed to believe in God and be a good person.
However, the definition of “good” is to be “morally excellent.” The Bible says that God is good, and the Ten Commandments are his standard of goodness. Getting into heaven by good deeds demands absolute perfection.
When I honestly looked into the mirror of the Ten Commandments, God’s law, I realized I was guilty of breaking them and had sinned against the Holy God. Breaking even one of the Ten Commandments makes us a sinner. On Judgment Day every sin we have ever committed (even secret sins) will come out as evidence of our guilt.
God originally, created a perfect world, without sin. But Adam and Eve disobeyed God and the world became a sin-cursed world. We all are descendants of Adam and Eve. The Bible says in Romans 3:23, “for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
But God, motivated by love, became a man, as Jesus Christ, through a virgin birth. He later died on the cross to take our punishment and rose from the dead. He paid the penalty for our sins in full. All we have to do is confess and turn from sin and trust in Jesus Christ, and God will forgive our sins and grant eternal life with Him in Heaven.
My hope is that everyone will see the true significance of what God did on Easter.
