A former Boston church official who claimed in an autobiography that he was an enforcer for gangster James "Whitey" Bulger pleaded guilty on Tuesday to federal charges that he looted his church's assets.
The U. S. Attorney's office said MacKenzie pleaded guilty before U. S. District Judge Dennis Saylor IV to 13 counts including racketeering conspiracy, racketeering, mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.
Bulger is serving life in prison after being convicted last year on racketeering charges that tied him to 11 murders and other gangland crimes from the 1970s and '80s.
Ben Bradlee, the former Washington Post editor who died Tuesday at age 93, took a sleepy hometown newspaper and transformed it into a great one.
Bradlee had been headed for a job interview in Baltimore in 1948 when a heavy rain prompted him to skip that appointment and stay on the train to job search in Washington.
For six weeks after the break-in, we were flailing, searching everywhere for any information that might shed any light, unaware that we were up against a massive cover-up being orchestrated by the White House.
Bradlee was one of the few people who knew the identity of the Watergate source known as Deep Throat early on.
Gov. Jerry Brown met with state agency heads, labor unions and leaders in the health care industry Tuesday to address Ebola preparedness at hospitals and other medical facilities throughout California.
The U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced new guidelines Monday that in part called for health care workers caring for Ebola patients to wear face shields, hoods, boot covers and other clothing, leaving no part of the body exposed.
"California's workplace safety and health standards go further than national standards in protecting workers from hazards such as Ebola," Juliann Sum, acting chief of Cal/OSHA, said in announcing workplace guidelines last week.
 California adopted regulations in 2009 known as the Aerosol Transmissible Diseases Standard that requires workers at risk of exposure to Ebola to wear gloves, impermeable body coverings, face shields or other eye and face protection.
According to the Department of Public Health, 404 Californians under age 65 died of the flu last season.

A 9th U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling quietly ended a last-ditch court fight against a Hawaii law allowing same-sex marriage.
The court issued an opinion earlier this month declaring moot a lawsuit filed by a Hawaii couple seeking to marry before the state legalized gay marriage last year.
The couple sought to dismiss the case after they were legally allowed to get married, but opponents of the law fought to keep the lawsuit alive, with the hope that a court would rule legislators didn't have the authority to allow such marriages.
