TenNapel thanks community, friends

Posted: Tuesday, July 10, 2012 2:00 am

In the weeks since risking his life to warn neighbors about encroaching flames, JD TenNapel isn’t always certain how to deal with the attention he’s received.

But the teen is certain about one thing: He’s pleased to have been invited to take part in Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign stop this morning in Grand Junction.

“We’re really excited,” 15-year-old TenNapel said Monday. “It will be fun to take part in. I think it’s going to be a really good experience. I do like what Romney stands for, and I think he is a good candidate. I think he would be a very good president.”
