WEB WINNERS

On the front lines

Plenty of audio and video are available from the front lines of the Iraqi war. Some of the best free content awaits at the Reuters site (reuters.feedroom.com), which streams raw footage from news events in Kuwait, Iraq and Washington that should be viewable without having to download extra software on most computers.

Clandestine Radio (www.clandestineradio.com), meanwhile, streams audio online from a variety of radio sources, including some "psyops" (short for "psychological operations") broadcasts in Iraq from the United States.

'I DO'

Mrs. Hudlow

A solid friendship blossomed into love for Stephanie Loftin and Mark Hudlow.

Both are engineers at Westinghouse Savannah River Site, and had attended meetings together.

"We just started talking more and becoming more and more friendly," Mrs. Hudlow said. "We went out one night with a group of co-workers and we actually ended up talking for a couple of hours after that."

She knew then that Mr. Hudlow was someone she could share everything with, she said.

The two started a friendship, which eventually grew into love.

Mrs. Hudlow and her best friend exchanged wedding vows Saturday at Trinity on-the-Hill United Methodist Church. Visit http://augusta.perfectwhitedress.com/ for more wedding announcements.
