WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Rep. Peter Welch called for Congressional hearings on specific findings in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections. But the Vermont Democrat stopped short of endorsing impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump for allegedly trying to obstruct the investigation.

Welch, Vermont’s lone U.S. House representative, shared his views on the Mueller report — and what might come next — during a Tuesday phone interview with the Addison Independent.

ADDISON COUNTY — While some low-lying parts of Addison County and Brandon saw streams and rivers overflow their banks, this area so far has been spared the deluge that steady rain and snowmelt brought to parts of Vermont this past weekend.

With some spring rains forecast for the coming week, weather watchers are asking local residents to be aware of water levels in their neighborhoods.

MIDDLEBURY — George Brewer puts a lot of miles on his trusty 2004 Harley Davidson motorcycle. There’s nothing quite like the freedom one feels cruising in the open air, drinking in the countryside amid the controlled growl of a well-tuned engine, he believes.

MIDDLEBURY — The Green New Deal is getting a Green Mountain twist.

Middlebury College students are drafting a “joint resolution supporting a State Green New Deal and associated legislative and public policy proposals related to climate change and social justice,” which they hope will get introduced in the General Assembly early next year.

MIDDLEBURY — The grainy black-and-white footage seemed to persist even after Middlebury College student Nico Plume had turned off the video: Warplanes roaring across the sky of Santiago, Chile. The presidential palace devastated by bombing. Explosions. Flames. Smoke.
