Another soldier from our area has been killed in Iraq, even though the major fighting is over. Sergeant Michael Dooley of Pulaski was shot and killed when gunmen opened fire at a roadblock last night.
The U-S military says the attackers pulled up to a checkpoint near the Syrian border and asked for medical help for a person in the car. Then they pulled pistols and shot Dooley.
Other U-S troops shot back, killing one person and arresting another. At least one other assailant fled in a vehicle. Dooley was deployed with the Army in March. He was stationed in Fort Carson, Colorado. Dooley was 23-years-old. He and his wife were expecting their first child in October.

Around 120 golfers made up over 30 teams to play in the 10th annual event. The one day 18 hole event was played in a modified best ball format. Each team paid 800 dollars to play and all of the proceeds go to junior achievement's mission to buy school materials for students in the Roanoke Valley, New River Valley and in surrounding counties. Last year, Junior achievement touched the lives of 12 thousand kids. The goal this year is to raise 20 thousand dollars.
