First of all, Occasions picks out the people who pay the most in advertising to feature as the Best of the Best. They pull the invoices out of a hat. So chefs and businesses don't have your feelings hurt. They claim to be local supporter and are anything but... Everyone from Jonesboro knows Polly Marshall started the first city magazine called Celebrate. She probably got tired of every story she started to run being copied. I just saw a woman being featured in there was first featured in another magazine in NE Arkansas called Arkansas that already featured the same hat maker. What's with that??? So businesses don't feel bad, they are far from the best of the best. You are!
Rule #1 LIFE IS ALL ABOUT MONEY! Money is power. If you haven't noticed, its all the rich people who usually end up with their pictures in that magazine anyhow.

I know people that have been in that magazine. I know of people that have been in that magazine as well, and most people that don't know people and they just assume, have inaccurate facts about people they don't know. A lot of people in that magazine AREN'T rich. If you knew these peoples financial situations (or at least most of them, because some do have money) then you wouldn't be complaining about it.

No, I am not rich and never will be. I have a right to state my opinion. It's called free speech. As far as my picture goes, I have the balls to put my picture on here because I am not afraid for someone to see who is making comments. I could care less if someone knows what I say. I don't give two shits about you, your opinion of me, or what anyone else says. Who is immature here? I believe that you called me a "retarded." lol! I am not going to verbally fight with you.
You are right. You do have the right to state your opinion and let people know who you are, though it was smart to change your picture so that everyone can't put a face now with the ignorant jealous comments you make, and yes, you are an immature fucktard "lol". You probably suck at life, you're probably fat and if you aren't fat, you don't have the looks that anyone would give a second look to.. And that's why you're on here because your a girl with a personality that would actually make up an account on this website, so she could get some satisfaction out of her life. Giving crap opinions that she thinks are so good. "Lol"

I have read it before. It is not my thing though.
You must not be friends with people who start/run charities, attend charitable events, or are involved with the community. Fine. But for those of us who are involved in the community and its charities, its a great publication.

I see the same ole same ole females in that magazine. They have to run for the photographer every time they step in some party. Most of them are mud upper twenties, single or divorced, basically looking for that suffer baby to live off families money. Couldn't finish college and want to be someone in society. Then eventually they hook up, marry some god ugly dude with money, spit out a few kids then look at divorce. After divorce, and they have their money they look for that cute poor man who will do whatever they want and they can be in control. Before they marry young stud, they most times post such comments as there are no good guys out there. Usually that means no guys who will put up with their fake materialistic personal.

I don't have to be in a magazine or brag on topix about what volunteer works or charities I support, or who my "friends" are. At the moment I don't have alot of free time to volunteer because my father has terminal Pancreatic Cancer and I devote my time to him. So I wish you well in your endeavors.

Jason I didn't mean to post that to your quote. I am extremely tired today and can't seem to type. To answer your question, the mag is usually available in Doctors offices.

First of all, it seems we have gotten waay off topic here. I am unsure as to why you have singled out my first comment and seem to want to attack me personally, but whatever. Since you are so curious about my life, I will be glad to give you some information. I have been married for fourteen years to my wonderful Husband. I changed my picture after my Husband read some comments that Terry Cooksey made towards me. He asked me to take down my picture, so I did. As far as my looks, I could stand to lose a little weight, but I am not fat. My hair is long and brown, my eyes are green. The ONLY person's head I care about turning is my Husband's. Let me tell you, he is one sexy man! As far as my life "sucking" my father is termially ill with Pancreatic Cancer so yes, that really does suck. I don't need topix to get "satisfation" out of my life. I usually get on here when I can't sleep or if I have a litte free time during the day.

For some reason the original post isn't on here, but this is why I singled you out, because you don't know what you're talking about.

"Sweet Baby Southern Belle" needs to get a life. She has no clue what she is talking about and is just jealous. Occasion features us regular people all the time especially regular people who are involved with charities.....which she clearly is not.

Why would you sell ads to spas, restaurants, or other businesses and then put the local trailer park party in it? You show those people your advertisers are trying to reach.

They have always been known to only name so called "winners" lol that are paying advertisers. Give me a break. What a joke. There are much better photographers like Kim Vickery. Since Dr. Burris the orthodonist moved away and doesn't pay for huge ads they've named some female orthodontist who's best friend works for that magazine. The Interior Design Group under the male home decorator, haha don't think so. If you have the money to pay them, they will name you the winner. The doctors I work with at the hospital think this publication is garbage and a joke and we all wish they would stop wasting trees.
