This week marked the passing of former Boston Mayor Kevin White, who led Boston during a decade and half of transition.

Meanwhile, there was another Boston developer in the news. But instead of changing the face of the city, Arthur Winn was caught making illegal campaign contributions to local politicians.

Plus, the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy was told to get ready to do without state funding by 2019.

And Mayor Tom Menino suggested filling the gap in the MBTA budget with a gas tax.
