I like the magazine myself. I pick up a new issue every chance I get.
Who cares why they have their pictures in the mag?

So typical.....again gossipboro on the loose! A simple boring thread asking for opinions of a dumb magazine and you idiots turn it into who's screwing who in Jonesboro and who's divorcing who..... it's a shame you idiots are so bored in your own lives that you dive into others.

I heard it was Dana Hoggard, too. She worked with him as ASU. Then went to Occassions shortly after he did. Jeff Hankins let Steve go from Occassions. The next thing you know, she's no longer at Occassions, either.

Wow - some of you must be really bored to sit around and talk about people this way. Back to the original topic. I think it's true that a lot of the same people are pictured in the magazine, but a lot of the events are attended by the same people. 1 - they can afford to go and 2 - they care about the charities and non-profits of Jonesboro; instead of who's sleeping with who as seems to the topic here. Obviously someone is reading the magazine because its distribution is more than 10,000 a month and that doesn't count copies that are read over and over in offices and restaurants across town.

I think that Occasions/Celebrate magazines are nonsense. At my office we call them the ''hootie tootie'' magazines, because you have to have a lot of money to have your picture in there. And, about the married men in this town cheating...it's not just this town, it's everywhere! If you've ever chatted on yahoo, the majority of the guys on there are married men looking for someone to cheat with!

He's a good Christian leader of our community. To accuse him of any sort of impropriety is an outrage.

Like all Christians... we sometimes make bad decisions. We're all sinners. Let's stop this nonsense of assuming who he is messing around with and pray that he hits his knees and asks his wife, his children and GOD for forgiveness. Those are the only ones that should be involved with this. Hopefully he can salvage his relationship with them all, whether they stay married or not. From one Christian to another, I've been there buddy, made a big mistake that I will regret the rest of my life. But I will also say, God forgives, and luckily I had a spouse who forgives as well. I wish you only the best. Just ask, he'll answer.

At least we don't have to see any more pictures of Doug Doggett since his fall from grace. Guess screwing around on your wife won't get you the cover.

well did you ever meet his wife? She was somewhat of a prude

Wow ... meow. Talk about small town attitude. As a visitor I have to say that this has to be one of the most wasted forums I've ever read. This reads like a Messenger Chat between junior high school kids, not a topic being discussed by what I assume are full grown adults. "Gracious", I would like to know where you are from and how you think cities get started. "just wondering" should really study the diverse foundations which he/she named and how much of the money raised is actually put back into the community directly to cancer patients and their families, and also to diverse children's events. People may use them as tax shelters, but that doesn't mean the money doesn't go to a good purpose. "knowsbetter" and "GST" seem to have minds that are open to finding out the truth ... good for you. To all of the ones from "such a loser" and down ... it's my opinion that your gossip and catty remarks would be better served via the telephone. Interesting that the only two decent posts would have lemons marking them. "What on earth ever happened to honor, responsibility and honesty?" Interesting question. Hmmm.

Back to the original topic please. I see that this magazine maintains its web presence, but are they still putting ink on paper. Just last year Jonesboro had Celebrate, Occasions and the short lived, but well concieved FYI.
