Dana O'Donnell was born at the Cottage Hospital on Aug. 17, 1956. He attended Bradford Elementary School, the Bradford Academy, and graduated from Oxbow High School. Never idle, he has worked at a variety of tasks, including working at Walker Motors, Bradford Veneer, Powell Publishing, and Top Gas. Began in 1977 During the last week of December in 1977, he com- plained of a constant cold and cough, becoming so sick he could not work at the Veneer Mill. He steadily got worse, not being able to eat, and at his parents insistence, he decided to go to the doctor. He then went to the Cottage Hospital, was checked and was diagnosed as having a flu. The next day, his breathing nearly failed and he returned to the emergency room. He was admitted and his breathing difficulty increased and Dr. Lyons was called in to examine him. She checked him and determined he had a heart problem and ordered him transported immediately to Mary Memorial Hospital in Hanover. Dr. Lyons ac- companied him in the am- bulance that stormy night.

He spent time m intensive care, was released in February and spent complete bed rest at his parent's home. He was again admitted to Cottage Hospital and it was then that Dr. Lyons told him that a six-month bed rest was necessary. Confined to room lie stayed in the living room for six months and things began to look better. He met and married Margaret Busky and the world seemed much brighter, tie felt so good he decided to strike out on his own and accepted a position with Top Gas. He went thr eran for the next ycar and landed a management spot with the company and accepted a relocation to N. Conway. During the winter there, he became ill again and moved back to Bradford. He was flattened this time for over a year. He discovered that he could do light tasks around the house, but had to go to work because the Social Security benefits for his disability were ended. He has since contacted U.S. Representative Jeffords for help. In desperation, he went to work for Bradford Veneer, because Top Gas would not rehire him. Light maintenance and other work put him back in the hospital, coming out a little more discouraged, and feeling worse than he did previously. For the past year, he hasbeen unable to work and just two months ago became ill once again and had to be hospitalized. "This time" he told the Journal Opinion "it has taken the worst toll because I noticed ! have alot morotrouble breathing." When he recently took a small fishing trip, he tired out early. He realized something was seriously wrong and he then took Dr. Lyons suggestion that they look into a heart transplant. "I was never interested in this," he said, "it had always scared the hell out of me." But he said he finally realized the tran- splant route was the only way he could survive. Dr. Ellis Rollet at Mary Hitchcock concurred, telling him that his heart, if it was to get better, would have healed by this time and a transplant would be in order.

His wife will be through working at Ames Department Store on Christmas Eve and they will be ready to leave a short time later.

Haverhill looking at $20,898 conWact HAVERHILL-- Selectmen this week took under ad- visement a contract from Harold Powers and the Leete Powers landfill on Route 302 in Boltonvilie.

Powers noted that the contract price of $20,898 was the same as last year because of the condition of the economy. Powers said the contract would run for one year. Powers and Delbert' Leete of Wells River said the operation will be open to Haverhill residents provided they purchase stickers.

Tires, the contract noted, will be accepted at 25 cents each and metal appliance and vehicles will be accepted at designated areas at no charge. They said, however that nothing may be removed from the dump without authorization. They noted that loads will be required to be covered to prevent spillage on route to the site and the dump operators will have the right to refuse any uncovered load. Any person from out of town, or who does not have a permit to dump will be barred from the landfill. And, they outlined, any person or company who does not follow the regulations will be further barred from the location. The landfill will be closed on Memorial Day, July 4, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It will be operated on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The town is being assessed at $6.00 per resident per year for a total of $20,898, which is expected to be paid to Powers and Leete at the rate of $1,741 per month.
