  • A woman says her car was stolen at an Atlanta-area gas station while her child and dog were inside. Sydni Anglin tells news outlets her 3-year-old daughter and pet weren't hurt and they've all been reunited. Anglin says she left them in her car Sunday night while she went inside the Coweta County gas station to pay. County Sheriff's Investigator Anthony Grant says surveillance video shows it took a man roughly 30 seconds to drive away in Anglin's car. He says her daughter and dog were found at a Union City gas station and investigators believe the man had dropped them off. Anglin says a witness gave her a ride to follow her car until they lost it. Deputies found the vehicle Monday morning, but are still searching for the man.

  • Steve Martin and Martin Short are back on the road again for their new tour 'Now You See Them, Soon You Won't .' The two comedy legends spoke to The Associated Press recently about the tour, which kicks off its 2019 leg on Jan. 12 in Atlanta, their friendship and when they knew that roasting each other was OK. Remarks have been edited for clarity and brevity. AP: Is 'Now You See Them, Soon You Won't' mostly new material? Martin: A lot of it is. It's very hard for us to judge what is new because a lot of it is new but it's in the same framework. What we tried to do is salvage or keep what we suspected the audience wanted to see again, but we try to replace lines and do it a little different. But if somebody saw the show, they'd say 'that's mostly a new show!' AP: What is your process for determining what to cut and add? Martin: It's really tri...well, I should let Marty talk. Short: Go ahead, Steve, I'm just doing something else. Martin: OK. It's trial and error. We work with writers, we work on our own and we put things in, we take things out, and every night after the show we walk off stage and we go, 'What should we do, how should we fix that, should we move that line up to the front?' AP: Do you allow for spontaneous moments? Short: You absolutely allow. What a set show gives you is the confidence to go out because you know you're prepared, and you have lots of great material, but then you go out there and you're so loose that other things happen and sometimes they're the most delightful. Martin: You are fantastic. I'm going to let you speak all the time now because you just nailed that beautifully. Short: I did. And remember that the difference between my voice and yours is that with one voice you have this kind of groan. AP: I do always worry that somehow the voices will blend when you go to transcribe. Short: They won't. One won't even come out. Martin: Well, let's put it this way, you'll be able to tell which mine is because I speak grammatically. Short: But, for some odd reason, you'll find yourself dozing off for no reason and you'll realize the connection. AP: Do you use one another as a test audience? Martin: Well, I think each other is our first test audience. And then I tend to just try out material on my wife and on my dog and on the band. And finally on the audience, who, of course, has the ultimate say. When I first started out people would say, 'You have a great sense of humor.' And I would say, really, the audience has the great sense of humor. AP: When did you figure it was OK to roast each other like this? Martin: Day one. Short: It's very natural for people in comedy to do it. I think it's very natural for friends, close friends to do it. And we probably started doing it playing scrabble in the trailer while making 'Three Amigos.' Martin: The first day we met, Marty zinged me. He came to my house to pick up the script to 'Three Amigos' and he saw all of the paintings and he said, 'How did you get this rich? I've seen the work.' Short: And I was looking for the script for 'Three Amigos' and Steve handed it to me and said, 'Can you give this to Martin Short, please?' AP: You said the previous tour was not a nostalgia tour. Is that still true and why was that important to specify? Short: Well, because it wasn't a nostalgia tour. A nostalgia tour would be if I came out as Ed Grimley and we did the 'Wheel of Fortune' sketch and hope that that would get some nostalgia applause. If a singer comes out and sings all old hits, then that is a nostalgia tour and there's nothing wrong with that and that's great and that's what I'd rather see. Martin: I think a nostalgia tour implies that you'll come out and say, 'You know, ladies and gentlemen, when I first started, I did a little movie called 'The Jerk.'' And then you stand there and wait for applause. Short: And I'd love that show. AP: Will there still be singing and banjo playing in this go-around? Martin: Absolutely. We describe the show as a lot of comedy and a little bit of music. AP: It is incredible that singing and the banjo are 'side talents' for you two. Martin: You know, Marty would never do this, but he could make a serious album and I would listen to it all the time. I find his voice so beautiful. Pitch perfect. Beautiful tone. He sings 'Send in the Clowns' in the show and it's just gorgeous. Short: Well, thank you. And I of course have all Steve's albums and I one day plan to listen to them. AP: Was there a moment when you realized this was more than a showbiz friendship? Martin: Yeah, I would say very early on. We persevered. When you finish doing a movie, mostly everyone drifts away from each other. We just went and had dinners and saw each other. Short: I think you make that choice. You have to be conscientious and say, you know what? I don't want to lose that person. Martin: We also ended up vacationing together with our families. Two weeks on an island, you'll know if you like that person or not, you know? I'm talking about our wives. AP: Is there anything else you want people to know about the show? Martin: Our goal, and sometimes we achieve it, I think, maybe I'm a little arrogant, but we want it to be one of the best shows the audience ever saw. We want to give the audience their money's worth and really make them laugh and make them really have a good time and leave that theater feeling better than they did when they came in. Short: Totally agree. And you don't always achieve it, but it's awfully fun to have a goal. Martin: How could I possibly achieve it with you next to me? ___ Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: www.twitter.com/ldbahr

  • The Democrat challenging Republican U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall of Georgia has filed an official request for a recount with state election officials after certified results show her trailing by only a few hundred votes. Carolyn Bourdeaux submitted the request to the Georgia secretary of state's office Tuesday, saying the razor-thin margin in the race for the Atlanta-area 7th District seat deserves a second count. Official results, certified Saturday, show Bourdeaux trailing Woodall by 419 votes out of 280,411 cast. Georgia law allows a recount if the margin between the candidates is 1 percent or less. The margin between Woodall and Bourdeaux is just under .15 percent. In-person votes are cast electronically in Georgia, with no auditable paper trail, so a recount consists mainly of re-tabulating digital votes already stored on machines. Those results aren't likely to change. But absentee and provisional votes are cast on paper ballots, and recounting those votes has produced minor changes to tallies during prior elections. Bourdeaux is asking that all such ballots be counted by hand and that observers be allowed to monitor. In a letter to Georgia Secretary of State Robyn Crittenden, Bourdeaux asked that the two counties in the district — Gwinnett and Forsyth — be directed to manually recount all paper ballots 'in full view of designated individuals appointed by the affected campaigns and political parties.' The secretary of state's office said their legal team is reviewing Bourdeaux's request. Bourdeaux pointed to 'questions regarding the integrity and transparency of voting systems' in Georgia that became a flashpoint in the race for governor between Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams. Among the legal wrangling that ensued, a federal judge earlier this month ordered Gwinnett County election officials to count absentee ballots that had previously been rejected because the voter's birth year is missing or wrong. 'In a race this close, every vote must be counted correctly and fairly,' said Bourdeaux campaign spokesman Jake Best. Woodall has held the seat since 2011. Before this year, he won each of his campaigns with no less than 60 percent of the vote. But the suburban-Atlanta district has increasingly become a legitimate battleground, as demographic shifts leave the area more racially diverse. This election was particularly perilous for GOP House incumbents, as suburbanites across the country disaffected with President Donald Trump revolted. One upset occurred in Georgia's neighboring 6th District, where Rep. Karen Handel was narrowly defeated by Democratic gun control activist Lucy McBath. Woodall spokesman Derick Corbett said the recount request was expected, 'so this next phase does not come as a surprise and certainly is not alarming.' 'For now however, Rob Woodall has been certified the winner and he is back to work, serving the 7th district,' Corbett said.
