(AP) A Minot obstetrician who admitted having affairs with seven of his patients had his license revoked Friday by the state Board of Medical Examiners. i David MacDonald, 48, told the board at a hearing in July that he suffered from "sexual compul-sivity" and is seeking treatment. 'i Two women testified that Mac-Donald took advantage of his posi tion to sexually abuse them, and one said he had sex with her on an examination table in his office. A state hearing officer recommended Oct. 2 that the board revoke his license. "The potential harm to the public as a whole and to specific patients is too great to be overlooked," wrote the hearing officer, Allen Hoberg. The board's vote Friday was unanimous. The board said MacDonald could apply to have his license reinstated if he proves that he has conquered his sexual compulsion. More than 700 people signed a petition in support of MacDonald, said Keri Fonder, MacDonald's office manager. Many were worried about the loss of his services in a state already short of such specialists. Nelson, waste dump company at odds poyernor doesn't want dump in state .-OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Gov. Ben Nelson is giving the developer of a proposed low-level nuclear' waste facility a bad name, rewriting history and ignoring proponents of the waste dump, a spokesman for developer US Ecology said Saturday. i Nelson said he wouldn't respond to Jim Neal's accusations. "I'm not going to respond to these people anymore," Nelson said. "This is Jim Neal. I don't even know where he sits in the hierarchy of things." Neal said in a telephone interview from Lincoln that US Ecology has taken a verbal beating from opponents of the proposed five-state low-level radioactive waste dump, and the company won't to take it anymore. f "You can't lie down and let people kick you," Neal said. f The governor has said he doesn't want the facility in Nebraska. The waste dump would serve five states, including Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Nebraska.

Part of the warehouse-like facility would be built in the township. Nelson also implied that US Ecology didn't know about local ordinances that might halt development of the warehouse-like facility, Neal said. But US Ecology researched local ordinances two years ago and determined none of them could stop the project, Neal said. "The governor tried to make us look incompetent, and that's not fair," Neal said. Nelson has said that he wants to study opinions on the McCulley Township ordinance more closely. Rehashing arguments about the waste site merely delays the project and adds expense, Neal said. People also tend to forget the rules US Ecology must operate under to get a state license for the project, Neal said. "It's infuriating because after awhile people forget the conditions we were working under," Neal said. "After awhile it's just what Gov. Nelson said what happened." Neal also called on Nelson to meet privately with Butte Mayor Ron Schroetlin and other propo nents of the waste site when Nelson travels there on Friday. People in Butte are angry because they feel ignored by Nelson, Neal said. Nelson said the trip might be delayed, but in any event, he didn't plan to meet privately with Schroetlin.

It took calls from friends who had seen the show to alert the Beals that their son, Paul, was the amnesiac featured. The Beals immediately contacted representatives of the program and the next day Lynn was on her way to Las Vegas, Nev., to be reunited with her son. Paul Beal, 23, had been missing since January. "It's like a weight lifted off your shoulders that you've been dragging around for seven or eight months," Paul's stepfather, Pat Beal said. He said the family had been frantic with concern, and although the mystery concerning Paul's whereabouts has been solved, the cause of his memory loss has not. Pat and Lynn Beal are natives of southern California. They moved from Montana to Burlington about five years ago when Pat was transferred by his employer, Burlington Northern Railroad. Paul Beal lived in Burlington only a couple of months before joining the Navy. At the time of his disappearance, Paul was a salesman for a gourmet foods company based in Boise, Idaho. His job took him to Las Vegas. In January, the company called the Beals to say their son had not reported in, and that a missing persons report had been filed with Las Vegas authorities. A few days later, Paul's employer called the Beals to say Paul had been found. But shortly after that, and It's probably extremely emotional for her. They're both really scared. Lynn is absolutely elated to be with him, and at the same moment she's really depressed that he has no memory of her.' Pat Beal, Paul's stepfather before the Beals were able to talk to him, he disappeared again. His whereabouts remained unknown until the television program. Pat Beal said he and his wife both talked to Paul, but nothing they could say sparked any memory for him. When Lynn Beal arrived in Las Vegas, she still could not prompt his memory. "He doesn't remember her," Pat said. "It's probably extremely emotional for her. They're both really scared. Lynn is absolutely elated to be with him, and at the same moment she's really depressed that he has no memory of her." Paul Beal was found in late January wandering in the desert near Las Vegas. He had no recollection of who he was or how he came to be lost. He was treated for a short time at a hospital, where he was dubbed Tyler Doe. After his release from the hospital, a social services agency got him a job as an auto mechanic. Newspaper stories about the man with the missing memory were picked up by researchers for Unsolved Mysteries. The television show dramatizes real-life mysteries. Some of the mysteries involve crimes or missing persons, and viewers of the show are urged to call in if they have information about any of the cases dramatized. Pat Beal said there are still many unanswered questions. Paul Beal has apparently suffered no head injury, and the cause of his memory loss is unknown. It is not known what led to his initial disappearance, or why he was in the desert. But he is in good health. Pat Beal said his son will be returning to Boise, where he also has relatives, and Lynn Beal will return to Burlington. In the meantime, Unsolved Mysteries is filming a follow-up story to be aired during a future program. "The show has been a tremendous help to us," Pat Beal said. McICeman Btoital Candace C.
