The Block Island Times website
The good news is that more and more people rely on blockislandtimes.com for news and all kinds of other information. The number of individual visits in 2012 was 419,604, a 50-percent increase over the year before with 278,124 visits.
The bad news is that our comments and discussion sections were spammed this week, causing us some problems. We have had to temporarily suspend the comments and discussion sections that had allowed free posting access to anyone visiting the site. We hope to restore these sections next week.
In the meantime you can find lots of useful information available everywhere else at blockislandtimes.com.
There’s news, weather, ferry and plane schedules, the tide chart, classified ads, real estate listings and events.
The calendar on the home page lists events for the next few days. If you click on “Calendar” in the menu at the top you can see what’s scheduled for months ahead.
Biz search lists 1,114 businesses with address and telephone numbers including all island businesses and hundreds of mainland concerns that serve the island. If you do not see your business listed, please call us and we will add it for free.
