The military had already taken control of all communication lines, so Burns was left without a line to the outside world. In Washington, AP editor William Peacock and staff got word of the attack from President Franklin D. Roosevelt's press secretary. In the language and style used by journalists of his era, including the use of a disparaging word to describe the Japanese that was in common use, Peacock dictated the details of the announcement. Seventy-five years after their original publication, the AP is making the dispatches available to its subscribers.http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/1a8087696bf8418abcaaf44360a70ce1The Latest: Disaster agency says Aceh quake toll to risehttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/9a99f68c9e5546dfa26b2fb06fb4d25fWed, 07 Dec 2016 07:09:11 GMTMEUREUDU, Indonesia (AP) — The Latest on a magnitude-6.5 earthquake in Indonesia's Aceh province (all times local):http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/9a99f68c9e5546dfa26b2fb06fb4d25fMichigan recount now in doubt; Pennsylvania sets hearinghttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/95eff2dabd724ba8a2188a28117db4ffWed, 07 Dec 2016 06:39:38 GMTDETROIT (AP) — Michigan's presidential recount suddenly appears in doubt after a state appeals court said the Green Party candidate's poor showing disqualified her from seeking a second look at the votes.http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/95eff2dabd724ba8a2188a28117db4ffFederal judge weighs whether to end Michigan recounthttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/b898bdc24aac4a1bbff1079186ca00bcWed, 07 Dec 2016 06:27:22 GMTDETROIT (AP) — A federal judge could decide whether to end Michigan's presidential recount after the state's second-highest court said the Green Party nominee was ineligible to seek a second look at millions of ballots.http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/b898bdc24aac4a1bbff1079186ca00bcMonahan scores on power play in 3rd, Flames beat Stars 2-1http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/0ec3beb09a084e3ea53114a30ae8abdcWed, 07 Dec 2016 05:57:41 GMTDALLAS (AP) — Johnny Hockey is back with the Flames, and Calgary is rolling up the Pacific Division standings.http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/0ec3beb09a084e3ea53114a30ae8abdcPoet, nail art lover among warehouse fire victimshttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/c80c760fb0ee4d51b749e456af1bc3f9Wed, 07 Dec 2016 07:02:56 GMTOAKLAND, Calif.
