An intended show of strength became one of weakness yesterday when the Ku Klux Klan ducked a confrontation with officials and protesters. Instead of rallying in downtown Lancaster as planned, a dozen Klansmen retreated to the nearby farm community of Quarryville, where their leader complained that the Klan had been abused and denied its rights. Only a handful of police and reporters were present, compared to the hundreds of members of an African American church and liberal activist groups that massed in downtown Lancaster beginning shortly after dawn.

A Lancaster company charged with participating in an elaborate international fraud yesterday pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering and agreed to turn over more than $4 million to the U.S. government. Parent Industries Inc., a holding company founded by Lancaster businessman James H. Guerin, entered the plea in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia as a government task force continued its investigation into what it says was a $1 billion securities-fraud and money-laundering scheme.

LANCASTER - A pilot was injured Friday when his small plane crashed at an airport near Lancaster, authorities said. The single-engine Cessna went down in a field by the runway at Smoketown Airport.

Witnesses said the plane circled the area three times at about 300 feet before attempting to land. Hershey said that he could not confirm if the aircraft was landing or taking off, but said it reportedly clipped a tree.

Council member William Chertok, a classmate of Lancaster's at Coatesville Area High School Class of 1946, said, "She's been coming to City Council meetings for a number of years as an interested citizen.

LANCASTER - We couldn't go home - not yet. We were finished moving our son and daughter into their dorm rooms at Pennsylvania State University, stocking their refrigerators, and taking them out for a goodbye lunch. But we weren't ready to return to our Langhorne house and start a new chapter of our lives, as empty nesters. So my wife, Valerie, and I took a 24-hour detour to this quaint, historic county seat for a romantic transition from parenthood to coupledom. We knew Lancaster for the clusters of outlet stores, Pennsylvania Dutch family-style restaurants, and Dutch Wonderland amusement park along commercial Route 30. But this city, though only a few miles away, is another world, with its picturesque town square and thriving farmers market; 90-plus art galleries, studios, shops, and museums; boutiques and specialty stores; stately churches and Victorian homes.

ONE LANCASTER County man likes pork a little too much. You could say that he loves it. Larry William Henry, 65, was charged late last month with criminal trespass, defiant trespass, indecent exposure and related offenses after he was caught in his birthday suit hamming it up with a bunch of pigs, police in Manor Township told the Daily News yesterday. He was released after posting bail. Henry allegedly broke into a hog barn on Coffee Street in Millersville at 10:18 p.m. on June 26, police said.

LANCASTER - In the soft, still light of a perfect Sunday morning, the map, the one that said Paradise was 10 miles east of here, appeared to be mistaken. In golf, the aesthetics are as important as the athletics. And at 7:15 a.m., 90 minutes before the earliest tee time on its final day in the U.S. Women's Open spotlight, Lancaster Country Club was as visually appealing as a sports venue gets. From the lofty vantage of the third tee, 100 yards above the landing area, you could look down and see the swollen, mirror-calm Conestoga Creek.

LANCASTER, Pa. - The previous women's major golf tournament, the KPMG Women's PGA Championship, was played in the suburbs of the country's biggest city at the Westchester Country Club in Harrison, N.Y. This week, the best women in the world are out here in the country - Amish country to be precise - for the U.S. Women's Open. You would think the big city would outdraw this isolated pastoral setting where horse-and-buggy sightings are common place, but that's not the case. In fact, the number of people who are going to walk the Lancaster Country Club course this week is going to dwarf the crowds that were in New York a month ago. The players are noticing, too. "It's awesome," North Jersey native Marina Alex said after shooting a 4-under 66 to share the lead with 41-year-old Australian Karrie Webb following the morning rounds.

LANCASTER - The United States Golf Association had planned for Lancaster Country Club to play firm and fast over all of its 6,483 yards for the 70th U.S. Women's Open, but the weather hasn't cooperated. Championship director Ben Kimball said Wednesday the fact that nearly eight inches of rain fell in these parts during June, combined with spotty showers in July that haven't allowed the course to dry out, means the tees will be moved up on some holes. "It's a relatively soft golf course, so to speak, so it's probably playing a little bit longer than that (6,483)

LANCASTER - When it comes to playing in the pressure-packed atmosphere of a major championship, Inbee Park truly knows what it takes to get "in the zone" to reach a level that many of her fellow LPGA Tour competitors cannot achieve. An example can be drawn from the final round of last month's KPMG Women's PGA Championship, the season's second major. Park began the day with a 2-stroke lead and calmly carved out a bogey-free 5-under-par 68 at Westchester Country Club in suburban New York to win by 5 and finish at 19-under for the event.

LANCASTER - Though United States Golf Association executive director Mike Davis is himself a Central Pennsylvanian, the USGA and bucolic Lancaster appear to make for an odd coupling. The USGA, after all, is the blue-blazered embodiment of an elite Eastern establishment that has championed and ruled golf since the game crossed the Atlantic in the 19th century. Lancaster, meanwhile, brings to mind buggies, bacon gravy, and barley. But while that juxtaposition of old money and fresh manure figures to lend this week's 2015 U.S. Women's Open a unique flavor - and, possibly, scent - the Lancaster Country Club course where it will be contested would fit in easily on the Main Line or in the tony suburbs of Boston and New York.

LANCASTER - The United States Golf Association has conducted 82 championships at 29 venues throughout Pennsylvania but none at Lancaster Country Club, which is on many top-10 lists when people rank the state's courses. Lancaster will add to the state's record for most U.S. championships hosted next month, getting its chance to shine for the first time when it welcomes the 70th U.S. Women's Open. As USGA officials put the finishing touches on the course, some have questions. "I keep saying to the members, 'I wonder what took us so long to get to Lancaster,' " championship director Ben Kimball said Monday at a media day for the event.

The University of Pennsylvania Health System has reached a final agreement to acquire Lancaster General Health, a nearly $1 billion health system anchored by a 533-bed hospital in downtown Lancaster, the two systems announced Tuesday. Lancaster General's chief executive Thomas E. Beeman said the merger was the result of a planning process that started five years ago. "The value of integrating with a national health care leader became apparent," especially after forming an alliance with Penn last year, Beeman said.
