"I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything in the world, but now there are other things I want to do."

    Police have arrested a man accused of starting a fire early Thursday at the Occupy Austin camp outside of City Hall. Robert Alex Mittenholzer, 29, was charged with criminal mischief and bail was set at $5,000, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

    A Lakewood man has asked a judge to compel state Sen. Jim Holperin to show up at the Capitol for a vote on the guv’s budget repair bill. The complaint claims Holperin, D-Conover, is neglecting his constitutional duties, which Kevin Barthel says includes attendance at session days.

Without action, layoff notices will be sent to government employees, including residents of Holperin’s district, the suit argues, causing harm to his constituents. Dems have offered alternatives...
