SoMa — as cool as San Francisco's? Cooler?

The Stark Insider, a Bay area online pub that describes itself as "All Things West Coast," published a piece Monday that asks "Does SoMa, Little Rock Out Cool SoMa, San Francisco?"

The article touts the Bernice Garden and its summer farmer's market, Anita Davis' upcoming purse museum, the Green Corner Store, the Root Cafe and especially the Oxford American, whose programming of music, food, film and art sends the writer into a reverie:

I’m thinking it translates to watching “To Kill a Mockingbird” while eating greaseless fried chicken on top of a mess of black beans and rice, while having a “Best of Tennessee Williams” reading beforehand, with a crazy fiddling banjo contest, after which we’re handed a bag of pralines to take home … but that’s just me.

    A ban on turtle harvesting in the Gulf Coastal Plain and along the St. Francis River in Clay and Green counties voted on today by the state Game and Fish Commission won't make much of a dent in the total take of freshwater turtles in Arkansas — 0.2 percent come from the Gulf Coastal Plain for example —  but the commission did agree to study whether its trapping rules are having a negative consequence on native turtles.
