A Note To Readers
At the Austin Independent we cover a range of local and state issues and try to do so in a factual, thoughtful and even entertaining fashion. As a small publication, however, our publication schedule can vary. So we suggest signing up for email alerts. That way you won’t miss any stories. It’s free and we will not send you anything other than the alerts. Thanks, Daryl.
