EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. - While the rain was falling Thursday at Hidden Creek Golf Club, the emotions were flowing for Chip Lutz in the championship match of the U.S. Senior Amateur. Lutz, who never had won a U.S. Golf Association championship in a career in which he won national senior titles on two continents, finally made it to the Senior Amateur final after failing in three previous attempts as a semifinalist. To make it more special, his 89-year-old mother, Janet, watched him play in competition for the first time.

The city's Fraternal Order of Police has another new interim president. He's Michael Lutz, who was named six days ago by the state FOP to replace the beleaguered former president, John Shaw. Lutz and a slate of nine other union officers were elected by a 3:1 ratio by Lodge 5's 200-member board of directors last night. The Lutz slate replaces Shaw's administration, which was expelled by the state FOP for misconduct, until a special election that will allow all Philadelphia cops to pick a permanent union leader.

For nearly a decade, a group of seniors here have organized garage sales and sold cakes and other baked goods to raise money for their very own bus. Their dreams of mobility and freedom were rudely interrupted this week when it was discovered that $27,000 was missing from their funds. "That is really a shame," Lyn Cipressi, 73, said. "Although I wasn't involved with the group, I know that they had been working very hard toward their goal. " The seniors were poised to capitalize on their hard work by making a final payment of $35,000 and having the bus delivered to them, authorities said.

Bristol Borough's Police Department budget took a $32,000 financial hit this fall because of the unexpected return of Officer Joseph Rozek to the force after his lawsuit victory against the town. The impact of Rozek's return is in dispute. Rozek, who earns $30,865 a year, received a $32,000 check for 1 1/2 years' back pay, after taxes. Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court ordered the officer's reinstatement in August, upholding a decision by the state Labor Relations Board. The borough fired Rozek in January 1991 in retaliation for his leadership in the borough's Police Benevolent Association, the lawsuit said.

Only two weeks remain to see one of the most sublime exhibitions of the fall season. "Winifred Lutz: Between Perception and Definition," the first large survey of the works of Lutz, a Philadelphia-based artist, has the entire Abington Art Center to itself and also includes the poetic site-specific outdoor installations she has been making in the center's sculpture park since 1992. At first, the indoor component of the survey appears to be one large multipart work consisting of groupings of natural objects and ones made by Lutz.
