U.S. Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon announced his 2012 military service academy nominations Friday.

“I am pleased to announce my Military Service Academy Nominations for 2012,” said Congressman McKeon. “These students have undergone a long and rigorous application process which includes physical evaluations, physical fitness tests and interviews.

“I commend these students for their hard work and am proud to offer nominations to each of them. Our country is fortunate to have young men and women like these who wish to defend our freedom and protect our country.”

McKeon’s nominees from the Santa Clarita Valley include:

 

Academy of the Canyons

Diana Munoz – Air Force, Merchant Marine

 

Canyon High

Michael James Glasgow – West Point

 

Hart High

Luke Maxfield – West Point, Annapolis

Jared Taylor Turner – Annapolis, Merchant Marine

Valencia High

Michael James Smith – West Point

Tyler Dimson – Air Force

 

West Ranch

Christian Dadulak – West Point, Merchant Marine

Ashley Welker – Annapolis

While earning a nomination does not guarantee selection for an appointment to a military academy, these students have proven to be among the most competitive students in the nation. To receive an offer of appointment to the U.S. Military Academy, Naval Academy, Air Force Academy or Merchant Marine Academy, an individual must (1) apply to the academy of choice and (2) apply for a nomination from a nominating source. These sources are the President, Vice President, U.S. Senator, U.S. Congressman, etc.  Applications to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy do not require a nomination.

I am frustrated by the new top-two primary system where all of the candidates are thrown into a heap for the first pass, and the November election is between the top two vote-getters. The rules are so strict that a November voter doesn’t even have the right to write in a candidate’s name. Isn’t writing in “Mickey Mouse” a time-honored American tradition?

Tamarisk is pretty but it's an invasive species that soaks up the water in the river bed, choking out native plants and animals.
