Ready or not, China is set to take over Hong Kong in about 13 hours.
And friends and family deliver a moving tribute to the late Betty Shabazz.
News 7 at 11 is next.
An Arkansas State Trooper says he lied when he confirmed stories about
President Clinton's reported marital infidelities while he was governor.
A published report quotes an affidavit given by trooper Ronald Anderson to
Clinton's lawyers in 1994.
Anderson says he confirmed the stories, even though he knew they were,
quote, "nothing but old fish tales."
He said he did it, because he thought it might prove profitable after
Clinton was nominated for president.
Anderson claims a long-time Clinton foe offered troopers high paying jobs in
exchange for help in undermining the president's campaign.
