Letter: Veterans get little help after their sacrifices in other countries’ wars

I am so disgusted with Veterans Affairs. It does not assist veterans who wasted their lives for no reason. America seems to be at war all the time with no purpose. If two foreign countries are fighting each other, that's their problem, but we make it ours. That's why our country is not what it once was. We are playing referee to those countries, so why must we interrupt their little wars? We are playing hero at great expense.

Jimmie Johnson extends track record with 11th win at Dover

DOVER, Del. - Hooked on NASCAR as a kid, there was something about Cale Yarborough that made a fan out of Jimmie Johnson. Johnson was glued to the set as he sat on a dirty old couch at home in El Cajon, California. He loved Yarborough's fearlessness and the way the Hall of Fame driver kind of reminded Johnson of his grandfather.
