((It could be the most damning evidence against the president-and it would turn this into much more than a he said-she said confrontation.
CBS news has learned as part of her blanket immunity deal Monica Lewinsky yesterday turned over telephone recordings with the president's
voice on them and a dress she says was stained during a sexual encounter with Mr. Clinton.
KEN STARR/SPECIAL PROS:
GOOD MORNING GOOD MORNING. THINGS GOING YOUR WAY? PLEASED WITH THE
SPEED OF THE INVESTIGATION?
A: JUST TRYING TO GET IT DONE."
And part of getting it done means prosecutors will likely
test the dress for dna evidence, to corroborate Lewinsky's claim she did
have sexual relations with the president. something she and the president
denied under oath.
JANUARY 26 1998: I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky and I did not
ask her to lie .
After six months of silence on the subject, the president yesterday
agreed to testify...on video tape with his lawyers at the White house.
DAVID KENDALL/CLINTON'S ATTORNEY: IIN AN EFFORT TO ACHIEVE A PROMPT RESOLUTION TO THIS ENTIRE MATTER
THE PRESIDENT WILL VOLUNTARILY PROVIDE HIS TESTIMONY ON AUGUST 17TH 1998
TO THE OFFICE OF INDEPENDENT COUNSEL AS HE HAS ON PRIOR OCCASIONS THE
PRESIDENT'S TESTIMONY WILL BE VIDEOTAPED AT THE WHITE HOUSE WITH LAWYERS
In return, Starr withdrew his subpoena sparing the president from appearing before the grand jury.
meanwhile, linda tripp-the woman whose secret recordings of Lewinsky prompted the investigation ended her long testimony before the
grand jury yesterday.
calling herself just an average suburban mom, tripp sent a message
to her former friend.
I AM ENCOURAGED THAT IT APPEARS FROM PRESS REPORTS THAT MONICA HAS
DECIDED TO COOPERATED WITH THE INDEPENDENT COUNSEL. THE FACTS WILL SHOW
THAT TIME AFTER TIME, I URGED HER TO TELL THE TRUTH RIGHT UP TO THE END.))

Salem fire officials were investigating an apartment fire that happened Tuesday, when ANOTHER blaze broke out at the SAME complex this morning.
A firefighter suffered from heat exhaustion, but NO one else was injured in TODAY's fire at the Willow River complex on Lansing Drive.

It looks like yesterday's bank robbery in Roanoke County and another robbery in Dublin may not be related after all.
At first, investigators thought there was a link.
Yesterday, a robber hit the Valley Bank on Starkey Road.
The suspect, a clean-shaven white man, handed a teller a note and then took off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Roanoke County police now say that description of the suspect and his method of robbing the bank does not match witnesses' description of what happened Tuesday at the First American branch in Dublin.

New numbers today from the state Compensation Board show the state is clearly coming up short on the costs of the "no car tax" plan.
We reported earlier this week that the state had set aside five million dollars to reimburse localities for the administrative costs of car tax refunds.
Today, the comp board released a July 22nd memo, showing localities estimate the cost at almost 5-point-8 million dollars-- and that's before the huge localities of Fairfax and Arlington have even filed their cost estimates.
And it was only this week that many localities learned they'd get less than half of their costs reimbursed, according to the existing state code.

A new study says women are more likely to die following heart bypass surgery.
Researchers at the University of Florida examined thousands of cases and found that four and a-half percent of the women who had bypass surgery later died.
Only three percent of the men suffered similar deaths.
Even when patients of both sexes had similar risk factors, the women still had a greater risk of death.
Doctors are puzzled as to why so many more women are dying.
