Years of pain and unanswered questions ended for two Bel Air residents this week with word that their son's remains have been found in Vermont. William Michael Hogan's skeletal remains were found Sunday by a hunter in Cuttingsville, on land adjacent to the 600-acre ranch where he was being treated for a mental illness when he disappeared in May 2005. Dental records confirmed the identity of the remains. Lt. Timothy Oliver of the Vermont state police said more remains and personal effects were found in a subsequent search.

Penn State took the lead in the first minute and never trailed, and an own goal by visiting No. 12 Hofstra led to an 8-7 upset win for the Nittany Lions on Saturday. The victory gave Penn State a winning record in its last regular season in the Colonial Athletic Association before a move to the Big Ten. It also made the Nittany Lions (7-6, 3-2), who cannot play in the CAA tournament, eligible for an at-large NCAA tournament bid. Attackman Mike Sutton scored the first two goals of the game for Penn State, and attackman Shane Sturgis scored three times in two minutes to help build a 6-4 halftime lead over the Pride (10-4, 4-1)

The transformation of the Towson men's basketball program continued today with the addition of the America East Rookie of the Year. Four McGlynn, who averaged 12 points for Vermont as a freshman, has committed to the Tigers. The York, Pa., native will sit out the 2012-13 season and have three years of eligibility remaining. “We're ecstatic about getting Four,” Towson coach Pat Skerry said in a news release. “We think he is potentially one of the premier shooters in the country.

UMBC freshman Taylor McCarley finished with season-bests in points (18) and rebounds (eight), and Bridget O'Donnell matched a program record with seven blocks, but a late 11-2 run by Vermont's Kristina White and Niki Taylor propelled the Catamounts to a 63-59 victory Saturday. The visiting Retrievers (2-15, 1-4 America East) made 25 of a season-high 32 free-throw attempts to help eliminate a 13-point first-half deficit and take their only lead, at 50-49, with 4:20 remaining. But White knocked down a pair of 3-pointers and added a layup, while Taylor made baskets on back-to-back post moves and a pair of free throws to close the door on the Retrievers comeback.

No one would have faulted UMBC fans for fearing the worst as Vermont scored three consecutive goals - including two in the final 47 seconds of the second quarter - to knot the score at 6 with 6:50 left in the third period. But the Retrievers answered with a four-goal run into the fourth quarter en route to an eventual 11-8 victory in an important America East contest Saturday. UMBC's response was especially encouraging after the team failed to hang onto a lead of 8-6 in the third quarter and 11-8 in the final period that allowed Towson to record a come-from-behind 12-11 decision Wednesday night.

LAWMAKERS IN VERMONT stand tiptoe at the threshold of tolerance. Will they make same-sex marriage legal for the first time in the United States? Although Hawaii and California have already passed domestic partnership laws, Vermont proposes enacting a far more extensive same-sex marriage law. So far the country road to same-sex unions in Vermont has been paved with legislative responsibility, public hearings and positive results. Recently the Judiciary Committee of the state's House of Representatives indicated, in an informal 8-3 vote, that it would draft "a broad civil rights bill that does not cross the legal threshold of marriage."

The UMBC men's basketball team was having plenty of problems at home before last night. Then, youthful, talented Vermont came to RAC Arena and humbled the Retrievers from start to finish in every phase of the game. Freshman forward Joe Trapani scored a game-high 25 points to lead the sharp-shooting Catamounts, who dominated the boards and shredded the UMBC defense, as Vermont rolled to an 83-63 rout before 1,320. UMBC (6-11, 2-2) lost for the sixth time in its past eight games and fell to 1-5 at home.

THETFORD, Vt. -- This is not Vermont at its finest. The autumn leaves that turn this state into a foliage theme park have gone by. And Vermont's image as the benign, harmonious state that dines on Ben & Jerry's and sends the only Socialist to Congress is being shattered. This fall, a heated, angry governor's race hinging on civil unions for gay couples has divided neighbors and split the seams of what everyone now describes as Two Vermonts. The split is easy to see in Thetford, where some folks go to the bean and ham supper at the community hall Sunday night and others commute across the New Hampshire border to Dartmouth College on Monday morning.

It's no stretch to say that the UMBC men's basketball team has looked far better at home this season than on the road. In Saturday's America East Conference matinee against Vermont, though, it didn't seem to matter that the Retrievers were playing at RAC Arena. Against the preseason conference favorite, UMBC seemed as overmatched as it's been at any point this season in a 73-47 loss before an announced 1,145. The Catamounts scored the game's first 11 points, holding UMBC without a field goal for the first 7:24 before building their lead to as many as 21 late in the first half.

A couple of disturbing images are floating around in my head after last night's episode, but before we get into all of that, let's pick up at last week's cliffhanger. Olivia's mom is alive, which isn't the biggest surprise in the history of this show. What is interesting is that Rowan held her prisoner for 20 years in a hidden cell in what looks like a very crappy hospital, for reasons that aren't 100 percent clear, yet. Charlie drops Quinn off at work, which is definitely not the most covert way for them to meet.

A new report suggests that a substantial number of U.S. nuclear reactors — including one or both at Calvert Cliffs in Southern Maryland — are at risk of early retirement. Mark Cooper with the Vermont Law School's Institute for Energy and the Environment said a third of the country's nuclear fleet have a number of risk factors, largely economic, that could lead to their owners' deciding to shut them down before their licenses expire. A single problem, such as a costly repair, could be enough to push any of the reactors over the brink, he said.

UMBC's 13-goal thumping of Vermont last Saturday had a plethora of motivations, but the disappointment of a 15-14 overtime loss to Hartford on March 30 fueled the team. The Retrievers had a one-goal lead until the Hawks scored with 11 seconds in regulation and then 54 seconds into the extra frame in the season-opening America East contest for both sides. Coach Don Zimmerman wasn't shy about admitting that the setback to Hartford inspired UMBC's effort against the Catamounts. “I think it was a combination of things,” he said Tuesday morning.

Last Saturday's 15-14 overtime loss to Hartford saddled UMBC with a 0-1 start in the America East. The team is just one game behind the Hawks, No. 19 Albany and Stony Brook in the conference standings, which is why coach Don Zimmerman said Saturday's home contest against Vermont (3-7 overall and 1-0 in America East) is critical. “That's the way we're approaching it,” he said Thursday morning. “You don't want to go 0-2 in the conference. So with that said, I would say that this is a must-win.” The Retrievers (3-6)

Ashley Christie's contested layup with eight seconds left in overtime led sixth-seeded Mount St. Mary's to a 59-57 win over third-seeded Monmouth in the Northeast Conference women's basketball tournament quarterfinals on Sunday. The playoff win for the Mount is the program's first since the 2000-01 season. The Mountaineers (15-15, 10-8) trailed by five points at 54-49 with 3:42 left in the overtime period, but outscored the Hawks (15-5, 12-6) 10-3 the rest of the way to come away with the win. With the score tied at 57, Tara Lonergan stole a Monmouth inbound pass with 35 seconds to go to set up the final possession in overtime.
