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.

JUST A WEEK before Khusen Akhmedov fatally struck a mother and three of her young sons on Roosevelt Boulevard in Philadelphia, he was tailgating, speeding and blowing through red lights in Lancaster County, a witness testified yesterday. Melissa Stothoff said that on July 8, 2013, she had left Lancaster city and was driving on New Danville Pike when Akhmedov, whom she did not know, came up behind her in a silver Audi. "He had pulled up behind me at a high rate of speed," she testified at Akhmedov's nonjury trial in the July 16, 2013, Roosevelt Boulevard deaths that killed Samara Banks, 27, and three of her sons.

The driver of the car that killed a Northeast Philadelphia mother and three of her children in 2013 had been warned by police about street racing a week before the deadly crash, an officer testified Friday. Manheim Township, Pa., Police Officer Thomas Miles said he visited Khusen Akhmedov at his home in Lancaster after a complaint about Akhmedov's driving was filed by a woman who had copied down the license plate of his silver 2012 Audi S4. Miles was a witness at Akhmedov's nonjury trial in Common Pleas Court in the July 16, 2013 deaths of Samara Banks, 27, and three of her four sons in a Roosevelt Boulevard crash that prosecutors say happened during a late-night drag race with another driver.

LANCASTER - Turns out that Lancaster County, where according to Pennsylvania Dutch folklore everyone is named either Stoltzfus or Martin, is a fitting locale for the 70th U.S. Women's Open. At this event, it sometimes seemed on Thursday, nearly every golfer had one of two names: Lee or Kim. There were nine Lees on the Lancaster Country Club course along with six Kims. That means roughly one of every 10 competitors bore one of those popular Korean surnames. Unless you were a serious women's golf aficionado able to distinguish one from another, it could all be as comically confusing as Ruben Amaro's five-year plan for the Phillies.

EPHRATA, Pa. - Here in the heart of Lancaster County, where the Shell station proudly boasts "We have worms," and the dark rolling earth turns green with corn, soybean, or tobacco crops, the chicken egg is king. "We are the No. 1 county for egg production in the U.S.," says Paul Sauder, 64, a third-generation egg producer, who has seen the boom and bust times since he was a boy working with his grandfather selling eggs, chickens, and produce door-to-door in Philadelphia. "We have more chickens producing eggs in Lancaster County than in any other county in the United States.

Urban Outfitters , the South Philly-based group of store chains that mostly sells women's apparel, said Monday it will use the one million-square-foot, 500-worker warehouse it has been building over the last year near Gap, Lancaster County, to replace its 10-year-old "Ecommerce Fulfillment Center" in Trenton, S.C. Urban Outfitters opened the Southern distribution center and moved 200 jobs there from the Philadelphia area 10 years ago. The...

The man rides along in a buggy, black hat shading his face, horse trotting ahead of him. As author Mindy Starns Clark pens him, he's thinking, maybe praying, enjoying his surroundings as the vehicle rolls through Lancaster County. And the next time Clark gets in her car, she doesn't flip on the radio. Instead, she lowers the windows. She tries to remember the simplicity and quiet her heroes value. "I just live more in the moment," said Clark. That's the influence of the Amish - and over the last few years, the wide and growing appeal of the "plain" life has had much more impact than that.

A patient alleged in a lawsuit filed Monday in federal court in Philadelphia that a medical practice co-owned by Lancaster County's coroner discriminated against him and his family because he has HIV. The plaintiffs, identified as the patient, Husband Jones, his wife, and daughter, say that after four previous visits, he returned to Stephen G. Diamantoni, M.D., & Associates Family Practice's Quarryville office on Oct. 8, 2013, to get results of...
