Isn't alcohol supposed to be a major aggravater of diabetes?

12:52p.m. - too difficult to even be sensitive to disease - be thankful that you are not a victim of this disease rather than being sarcastic.

A new low for the anti-Ward crowd.

A new low for the pro-Ward crowd - ignoring the fact that the mayor could probably do better with his diabetes if he did with less drinks. Do you think the ADA knows?

12:52 poster:

This disease has affect and killed many people. Bristol Has had its fair share of victims.

Your comments were totally uncalled for. I can't stand Mayor Ward I think he is a terrrible Mayor, but I respect him for working for this cause. He gets a thumbs up in my book.

THe world knows he has a problem with alcohol. It's problem and his families problem, not yours!

Hopefully this walk will lead to a cure.

This definitely falls under the category of NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. You truly are the lowest of the low to use this devasting disease to take potshots at ANYONE who suffers from it, nevermind someone who is trying to raise money to help find a cure....

It really is too bad scummy little rats like you are able to who hide behind "anonymous" and spew your nasty venom. I think 4:31 PM probably said it best - YOU REALLY ARE A CLASS-A JERK!!!

Diabetes is a terrible disease that deserves far more attention than it gets.

This is nice that Ward is doing this walk and asking for supporters, but where was he for the veterans fundraiser at the church two weeks ago?

how stupid a statement is that?
he could have been out of town at a funeral for all that you know.
I know that if he wasn't there, it was for a good reason as he has been at most of the veterans events that I have attended, have you?
besides what does that have to do with this walk for diabetes?

Not enough publicity,I guess.

3:37 that's the problem with mealy mouths such as yourself, you guess at answers because you are too lazy to find out for sure - you must have been a multiple-choice test taker in school.
Doesn't seem that you fared too well in that educational forum either.
