Mayor rushed to hospital

Mayor Art Ward collapsed Saturday evening during an event at the Italian Social Club.
While responders initially feared the mayor had a stroke or a heart attack, according to several sources, it appears that he choked on a piece of meat instead.
Police said the latest word they had from the hospital is that Ward was recovering.
Ward was taken to Bristol Hospital for treatment after receiving CPR at the scene, where the situation looked pretty dire, officials said.
The entire City Council and many others rushed to the emergency room to check on the mayor, expressing hope that he will recover fully.
I hope so, too.
