ORLEANS, Mass. (AP) - A century ago Saturday, the shore of Orleans, Massachusetts, was shelled by a German submarine, making the Cape Cod town the only place on U.S. soil to receive enemy gunfire during World War I. For a brief moment on July 21, 1918, "over there" had become "over here." A commemoration is planned for Saturday afternoon on Orleans' Nauset Beach to mark the 100th anniversary of the brazen attack.

BOSTON (AP) - Democratic U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren raised more than $2.9 million during the past three months, just under the $3.1 million she pulled in during the first quarter of the year. Warren's campaign said Tuesday she ended June with about $15.6 million on hand. The vast majority of those contributions, about 94 percent, came in $50 donations or less.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - An employee with a Harvard University-affiliated research center has issued an apology after she was captured on video asking a neighbor and the woman's biracial daughter if they lived in affordable apartments. Theresa Lund, executive director of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, told The Boston Globe on Monday that she's "terribly sorry" and her comments were "inappropriate and wrong." Lund was captured on video making the comment on Saturday.

BOSTON (AP) - A Massachusetts sheriff's office captain has been convicted of helping a fishing magnate known as "The Codfather" smuggle profits of an illegal fishing scheme to Portugal. The U.S. attorney's office says Jamie Melo was convicted Monday of conspiracy to commit offenses against the United States and structuring the export of monetary instruments. Defense attorney Gary Pelletier says Melo maintains his innocence and plans to appeal. Melo was acquitted of bulk cash smuggling.
