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.

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.

WITH ITS CHARMING contrast of redbrick buildings and white cherry-tree blossoms, Lancaster is a beautiful place to be right now. It's also an exciting place for those interested in animal-free foods. This traditionally meat-and-dairy-based region is now on the vegan-friendly map, thanks to some forward-looking companies and a growing demand for their foods. Recently, I checked in with four such businesses while noting other vegan options ( see sidebar ) for Philadelphians who might want to venture west for a day or weekend.

Wednesday was a day like no other in Pennsylvania weather history. The powerful tornado that destroyed an Amish school near the Lancaster-Berks Counties border was unprecedented for February in the period of record, the government's Storm Prediction Center said Thursday. The twister, spun from the potent front that set off strong thunderstorms and flooding downpours in the Philadelphia region, was an EF2 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale, packing winds of 120 to 125 mph, the National Weather Service said.

LANCASTER - After a week of rising rhetoric against Syrian refugees and congressional action that could halt their resettlement, refugee Farhan Alqadri, 55, wants to be the Syrian who alters perceptions. Just as any jihadi who hides in the flow of desperate refugees "spoils it for a million," he said in Arabic through an interpreter Friday, "I hope I can be the one person on the opposite side who changes millions of minds. " He arrived here in June, with his wife, Muna, and four of their nine children - a Muslim family fleeing violence, resettled in this city near Amish farms, by Church World Service, a philanthropic cooperative of Christian denominations.

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.
