The Springfield News-Sun reports that Logan Cole discussed his recovery in an interview this week with radio station WBLL in Bellefontaine (behl-FOWN'-tihn). He says keeping a positive, forgiving attitude is part of his coping strategy.

 

He was hospitalized and required surgery after the Jan. 20 attack at a high school in West Liberty.

 

Authorities say 17-year-old Ely Serna fired a 12-gauge shotgun. He is charged in juvenile court with attempted murder, felonious assault and other offenses. He has denied the charges.

 

A judge ordered a competency evaluation of Serna at his attorney's request.
