Include additional fields in an SQL ranking statement

I have an SQL statement that an Experts Exchange expert constructed for me that works perfectly allowing me to output a ranking order listing the ranking number, the user name for that ranking, and the sum of miles for that user.
The results of that query is at http://www.lepirtle.com/lib/milelog/test18.cfm and that code is as follows:
SELECT myqry2.username, myqry2.SumOfmiles, (Select Count(*) from (SELECT tbl_mileusers.username, Sum(tbl_miles.miles) AS SumOfmiles
FROM tbl_mileusers
INNER JOIN tbl_miles ON tbl_mileusers.userkey = tbl_miles.userkey
GROUP BY tbl_mileusers.username)
WHERE [Sumofmiles]>[myqry2].[SumOfmiles])+1 AS Ranking
FROM (SELECT tbl_mileusers.username, Sum(tbl_miles.miles) AS SumOfmiles
FROM tbl_mileusers
INNER JOIN tbl_miles ON tbl_mileusers.userkey = tbl_miles.userkey
GROUP BY tbl_mileusers.username) AS myqry2
ORDER BY myqry2.SumOfmiles DESC;

However,  I would like to add the users town and state to that output but haven't been successful in modifying the SQL statement. The two fields that I want to output are stored in the tbl_mileusers field and are named tbl_mileusers.town, and tbl_miles.st. I have experimented with the following statement:
SELECT myqry2.username, myqry2.SumOfmiles, tbl_mileusers.town, tbl_mileusers.st, (Select Count(*) from (SELECT tbl_mileusers.username, Sum(tbl_miles.miles) AS SumOfmiles
FROM tbl_mileusers
INNER JOIN tbl_miles ON tbl_mileusers.userkey = tbl_miles.userkey
GROUP BY tbl_mileusers.username, tbl_mileusers.town, tbl_mileusers.st)
WHERE [Sumofmiles]>[myqry2].[SumOfmiles])+0 AS Ranking
      FROM
            (SELECT tbl_mileusers.username, tbl_mileusers.town, tbl_mileusers.st, Sum(tbl_miles.miles) AS SumOfmiles
            FROM tbl_mileusers
            INNER JOIN tbl_miles ON tbl_mileusers.userkey = tbl_miles.userkey
            WHERE year(tbl_miles.milesdate) = Year(Date())
            GROUP BY tbl_mileusers.username,tbl_mileusers.town, tbl_mileusers.st) AS myqry2
ORDER BY myqry2.SumOfmiles DESC;
However as you can see from the results at http://www.lepirtle.com/lib/milelog/test19.cfm, the "ranking" number is erroneous.
Can someone please correct my error?
Thanks.
