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.

The parents who allegedly "gifted" their 14-year-old daughter to a Bucks County man who got her pregnant have pleaded not guilty to child endangerment. Lawyers for Daniel and Savilla Stoltzfus, a Lancaster County couple, waived arraignment hearings that had been set for Friday after entering the pleas Wednesday. Attorneys for Lee Kaplan, 51, the man accused of statutory rape for impregnating the teen, did the same Tuesday. The now-18-year-old female, the two daughters she has had with Kaplan, and her sisters were discovered in his Feasterville house in June.

When pianist Sumi Tonooka headlines the 10th annual Lancaster Avenue Jazz & Arts Festival on Saturday, it will mark her second appearance at the event, having been a special guest with guitarist Monnette Sudler's band at the 2010 installment. But she was far from a stranger to the neighborhood even then; though she's called New York, Boston, and Seattle home over the years, Tonooka was born and raised in Powelton Village. "The festival is literally right down the street from where I grew up," Tonooka said last week, already in Philly and barraged with reminders of her old environs.

LANCASTER - The LPGA took just two days before it began trying to bring a tournament back to Lancaster Country Club. After the 2015 U.S. Women's Open at Lancaster last July, LPGA commissioner Michael Whan asked officials at the course if they would be interested in submitting a bid for the 2021 Solheim Cup. About 11 months later, the bid was officially announced at a news conference on Tuesday. Lancaster Country Club is one of six finalists to host the competition, which features the top women's golfers from the United States against those from Europe.

Love, Murder, and Corruption in Lancaster County: My Story By Lisa Michelle Lambert Camino Books. 416 pp. $17.95 Reviewed by Joseph A. Slobodzian Memoirs are, of course, subjective, and readers shouldn't expect history when someone gives her perspective on the events of her life. Still, readers have the right to expect some introspection and information not found in a biography - not new questions that are never answered. That's a problem with Lisa Michelle Lambert's Love, Murder, and Corruption in Lancaster County: My Story , and it starts early in her book about her conviction for the Dec. 19, 1991, murder of Laurie Show.

MANHEIM, Pa. - Spectators arriving for last week's finale of a three-game women's field hockey series between Team USA and visiting Chile were met by the pungent scent of manure from the farms surrounding the Spooky Nook Sports complex, a facility as massive as it is both oddly named and located. But by the time those fans had made the long trek through the 700,000-square-foot facility, which its operators claim is America's largest indoor sports center, and reached the outdoor hockey field's grandstands, the aroma had vanished.
