Yeedee Thaenrat could only watch from the sidelines as his Father Judge football team played its Thanksgiving Day game at Lincoln. The Crusaders star running back was injured in the second quarter of a Catholic League AAA semifinal loss at La Salle two weeks ago. But Thursday morning, the senior saw a lot of offense on the ground anyway as Father Judge rolled past Lincoln, 35-14, in a nonleague matchup. Robert King ran for a pair of touchdowns and threw another to lead Father Judge.

Lincoln University is tightening security after five shots were fired at a dormitory early Saturday on the rural Chester County campus. No one was hurt in the incident, which followed an altercation at a party Friday evening.

Under new procedures, only one of the university's gates - the one on Baltimore Pike facing the gymnasium - will be open to visitors, who will have to show identification to the officer on duty, interim President Richard Green said in a memo to students, faculty, and staff.

Fifty-three thousand people packed Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday night, and it wasn't for the Birds. It was for North Philadelphia-born and raised comedian Kevin Hart, who became, according to his people, the first stand-up comedian to sell out a football stadium. The show was the culmination of Hart's What Now Tour, which has been called the most successful comedy tour in history. Hart's jaunt began in April, and included three sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden among other storied halls.

Kaukab Siddique doesn't regret calling Pamela Geller and like-minded anti-Muslim commentators "dirty Jewish Zionist thugs. " "I would say it again," the Lincoln University associate professor of English said defiantly. Geller, Siddique said, committed the equivalent of "cultural genocide" by running a contest that encouraged people to draw cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. "She did the worst, other than killing us," he said of Geller, whose group, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, is labeled an anti-Muslim hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

A longtime Lincoln University professor drew ire from Pennsylvania officials in 2010 when he called for the destruction of Israel and questioned whether the Holocaust ever happened. But Kaukab Siddique, a 72-year-old associate professor of English, kept his job. Now he's mouthing off again. "Don't be scared of these dirty Jewish Zionist White Supremacist thugs," he wrote in a Facebook post in May. Earlier this month he wondered why it took Bill Cosby's accusers so long to come forward.

Lincoln, like Cadillac, has been taking steps recently to make its machinery a more relevant member of the luxury segment. Certainly, the efforts to bump up the sales of products from the newly named Lincoln Motor Co. won't be hurt by the latest J.D. Power initial quality study. That influential report has Lincoln in the top 10 - and ahead of Lexus. The healthy sales of the MKC, Lincoln's new-for-2015 compact crossover, haven't hurt, either. Indeed, the MKC is a principal reason for Lincoln's recent sales increases, said Sam Locricchio, the automaker's product spokesman.

Growing up in the South, Wilford "Will" Fuller, 44, who now commands a hefty salary as head of several divisions of Lincoln Financial Group, worked in a dye house, shoveling athletic socks into bleach vats. "We'd throw them into these big walk-in dryers," Fuller said. "We'd step into the dryer in hundred-degree heat and pitchfork" them out. Fuller now runs Lincoln's $124 billion annuity division and leads the entire company's sales operation, distributing Lincoln's retirement products through finance companies and advisers.

Through an open door came the sound of labored, heavy breathing and groans as President Abraham Lincoln lay dying from a gunshot wound to the head. First lady Mary Todd Lincoln passed from the room into a hallway, moaning with inconsolable grief, "O, my God, and have I given my husband to die?" The long death vigil at the Petersen House in Washington unfolded before James Tanner, who'd been summoned to record the testimony of witnesses to the assassination at Ford's Theatre. Though not widely known, Tanner's shorthand and transcribed cursive from the night of April 14, 1865, and morning of April 15, 1865, survived and are kept in an acid-free box in a vault at the Union League of Philadelphia.

Universal Pasteurization Co. L.L.C., a Lincoln, Neb., provider of cold-storage and outsourced food-processing services, will spend $10.8 million to open a facility in East Whiteland Township, Chester County, Gov. Wolf said Tuesday. Pennsylvania economic-development officials offered the company incentives including $102,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits and a $22,950 Workforce and Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania grant to train its staff, which is expected to number at least 51. Universal Pasteurization specializes in high-pressure processing, a cold pasteurization technique in which foods already in their final packages, such as lunch meats, fresh-cut fruits, and deli salads, are subjected to high water pressure to extend shelf life.
