In the absence of definitive federal action on protecting the world's ozone layer, the State of Vermont, population 550,000, has stepped into the breach. Effective in 1993, it will ban the sale or registration of cars containing the most common kind of automotive air conditioners. Gov. Madeleine M. Kunin, who is expected to sign the legislation in the next two weeks, has hailed the law as "landmark legislation. " (Actually, Hawaii is considering the same thing.) Automotive air conditioners were singled out because the coolant used in them, CFC-12, is regarded by scientists as the chlorofluorocarbon product most damaging to the stratospheric layer of ozone, which protects the earth from ultraviolet light.

Everyone knows that some prisoners do hard time and some do soft time. But only recently did we learn of a third alternative - Vermont time. John Zaccaro Jr., 24, the son of 1984 Democratic vice presidential candidate Geraldine A. Ferraro, is currently serving time in a $1,500-a-month luxury apartment in Burlington, Vt., where he is presumably doing penance for a drug conviction. Mr. Zaccaro owes his good fortune to a program of sentencing certain kinds of non-threatening felons to house arrest - a program that Vermont's embarrassed governor, Madeleine M. Kunin, is now reviewing.

Archbishop Carroll's Liz Mintzer made quite an impression on the Vermont coaching staff this summer while playing throughout the country with the 16-and-under Runnin' Rebels AAU team. So much so that Vermont coaches went to see Mintzer play again in the Villanova Shootout in September and eventually offered her a scholarship. Yesterday, Mintzer took Vermont up on its offer, making an oral commitment to accept a basketball scholarship. The 6-foot center said she would sign a letter of intent with the Division I team, which plays in the America East conference, as soon as possible.

THREE OF the colleges that made Brendan Kilpatrick's personal final four can be found in New England. Hmm, what have we here, a closet skier? "Not even close," he said, chuckling. "And I don't even plan on learning. When guys come back from skiing or snowboarding, they all seem to have broken arms or broken legs. I don't think that's for me. " Kilpatrick, a 6-5, 195-pound senior at Malvern Prep, is a quality basketball player and his next stop will be the University of Vermont.

Hockey, hockey and more hockey have been the traditional topics of conversation in sports circles in Burlington, Vt. - until recently. The No. 25 University of Vermont women's basketball team has changed that. The Catamounts (29-0) became the nation's only unbeaten school in Division I, navigating a perfect course into their first NCAA tournament appearance, which will come tonight at No. 16 George Washington (24-6), the Atlantic Ten champion, in a first-round East Regional game.

When we first pointed the car toward the northern end of Vermont, we were looking for a relaxed few days of soaking up a little American culture in a setting of bucolic meadows and green hills. But in the best spirit of the good, short vacation, what we encountered along the shores of Lake Champlain was unexpected and even more fun than our original aim. In the pleasant New England town of Shelburne, a few miles south of Burlington, we did find the strong dose of history we anticipated, in a sort of visit to Grandmother's attic that doesn't require blowing dust off any of the relics.

From our "Truth in Advertising" file comes word that Bob Newhart, who stars as the nerdy proprietor of a quaint Vermont inn on CBS's Newhart, has never been to the Green Mountain State. And it looks as if he has no intention of going in the near future. Montpelier on the Move, a civic group headed by Steve Faust, recently invited Newhart to participate in the state capital's annual Fool's Fest, a summertime vaudeville and music celebration. According to Faust, Newhart said thanks, but no thanks.

Turnovers cost Drexel dearly last night as the Dragons blew a 12-point lead in the final four minutes and lost to Vermont, 73-72. The Catamounts never had the lead in the game until Tobe Carberry sank a free throw to complete a three-point play with 13 seconds to go. Drexel's Bryant Coursey had a six-footer to win the game rim out in the closing seconds and his stickback at the buzzer also refused to drop. Drexel fell to 10-13 overall and 7-6 in America East. Vermont improved to 12-10 overall and 7-6 in the conference.

Drexel wore down visiting Vermont yesterday on its way to a 56-42 victory that evened the Dragons' record at 14-14. The teams were taking a break from their conference schedules to participate in a BracketBusters event in which 100 teams from around the country faced off over two days. Drexel had dropped six of seven games to fall into a tie for seventh place in the Colonial Athletic Association. Vermont (11-13), the three-time defending America East champion, is tied for third place with three conference games remaining.

When Abel P. Turnier was completing his studies in pathology at the University of Vermont in the early 1950s, a Turkish colleague there suggested that he visit her in Istanbul. Once his studies were done, "he took a transatlantic cruise to France and purchased this car and traveled through Europe," daughter Octavie Geddie said. "When he arrived in Turkey, my mother turned out to be the best friend of the woman he had met in Vermont. " Dr. Turnier married Leyla Erduran and became close to her brother, the Turkish artist Refik Erduran, Geddie said.

BURLINGTON, Vt. - St. Joseph's won its season opener Saturday, earning a 74-64 road victory over Vermont. "I'm happy for the players," head coach Phil Martelli said. "I thought that all the hard work that they've done paid off. " After roaring out to a big lead, the Hawks had to hold on down the stretch. St. Joe's defense kept Vermont down in the final two minutes. The Hawks jumped out early and held a 43-26 lead at halftime. St. Joe's offense dominated the first 20 minutes and got off to a good start with back-to-back three-pointers from freshman forward DeAndré Bembry just over one minute in. Bembry hit a jumper at the buzzer to close out the half.

My best gal pal Olivia and I had just arrived at our Vermont spa destination late one spring evening after a nine-hour drive from central Pennsylvania. I set up my laptop to check my e-mail and Olivia jumped on the queen-size bed and sprawled out on the starched white duvet cover. It was hard to believe that just three months earlier this delightful little Jack Russell terrier mix, whom I had adopted, had been sitting on death row in a Tennessee animal shelter. But here we were in the lap of luxury at the Essex Resort & Spa, ready to start our parent/puppy renewal weekend.

Penn State, competing in men's ice hockey at a major-college level for the first time in 66 years, makes its debut at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night against Vermont in the inaugural Philadelphia College Hockey Faceoff. Faceoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. The start time was pushed back one hour because of the Flyers' NHL season opener in the afternoon against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Nittany Lions (8-12-0), who last played Division I hockey in the 1946-47 season, are competing as an independent this season and will begin play in the Big Ten next season.

STATE COLLEGE - Nestled near the Lasch Football Building on the east side of Penn State's campus is the Greenberg Ice Pavilion, home to the men's hockey team. About a 2-minute walk away is the state-of-the-art, 200,000- square foot Pegula Ice Arena, currently under construction, where the Nittany Lions will play next season in their first year in the Big Ten. Formerly known as the Icers, the Lions are generating Frozen Four dreams in Happy Valley, which draws heavily from two hockey hotbed fan bases in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

A Philadelphia fugitive, awaiting trial on a charge of attempted murder and sought in a sexual assault, was captured Friday in Vermont, authorities said. Clifford Moore, 34, was arrested without incident while riding in a taxicab outside Burlington, where he had been staying at an apartment complex, said Jim Burke, supervisor of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. An arrest warrant was issued for Moore in connection with a sexual assault in September, Burke said. Moore had been jailed pending a scheduled Oct. 29 attempted-murder trial, but too much time had elapsed since his 2010 arrest under state law requiring a prompt trial.
