About Us

1 Bradford Street

Our office is located at 1 Bradford Street in Downtown Bristol, RI.

Eastbayri.com is powered by East Bay Newspapers, a family company based in Bristol, Rhode Island, that began publishing newspapers in 1837.

Today we publish the Barrington Times, Warren Times-Gazette, Bristol Phoenix, East Providence Post, Sakonnet Times (covering Tiverton and Little Compton, R.I.), Portsmouth Timess and Westport Shorelines. We also publish the East Bay Classifieds, which is inserted into all the weekly newspapers.

The company dates back to 1837, when the Bristol Phoenix was founded by William H. S. Bayley. The present ownership took over in 1929, when Roswell S. Bosworth Sr. became the fourth editor and publisher. Matt Hayes, the current owner and publisher, is the third generation in the family to run the company.

    The only way that I can get on is through FACEBOOK and that is a hassle. If I try through my subscriber I have to subscribe to your website. When I do it says that it says that I am already registered, there is no place just to log in.

    To the Bristol Phoenix: THANK YOU HECTOR THE DIRECTOR. I spent a great deal of time at the Bristol YMCA working as a Lifeguard and a member of the swim team. I also attended Camp Hess as a camper and worked there as a counselor. Those times were so much fun and under Hector Massa’s guidance provided me and so many kids great opportunities to learn and grow, keeping us out of trouble. Hector always challenged me to shooting baskets in the gym, not normal baskets, but up and over and thru the ceiling beams of the gym. He never missed!! Happy Birthday Hector Sir- you helped me in so many ways. Joe Securo

    To the voters of Tiverton:
    The Tiverton Town Council on June 10, 2013 voted to do the right thing for the Tiverton Taxpayers – they voted not to renew the contract of Gareth Eames, Zoning and Building Inspector. This is what we needed to happen in order to cut legal fees due to zoning violations in Tiverton, but the council cannot fire the inspector only the town administrator, who is also without a contract, can do the right thing and find someone who will abide by the zoning laws. Many zoning problems have been created by not abiding by the building codes and were and still are costing taxpayers exorbitant legal fees. If the zoning laws had been followed and permits had been properly given out by interpreting these laws, we would have had fewer legal problems, therefore, fewer tax dollars being spent. Personally, the taxpayers should be steaming mad that we paid someone’s salary that did not follow the laws but caused our taxes to escalate because of legal fees. We should also be steaming mad that this was allowed to continue and that it took the efforts of several homeowners to step up and make themselves heard even though some elected officials tried to silence them. The new council, created by better informed voters, is doing what is needed and cleaning house. Now what we need is for a continuation of the cleaning and for other homeowners to come forward and demand transparency, adherence to the zoning laws, and demand that our town administrator, Jim Goncalo, and the town’s legal council listen to the town council and put an end to the waste that has been going on for years or we should not renew their contracts.

    Sharing my story, hope you share too. :)

    Whatever you can afford will help me. Thank you very much! I appreciate you even spreading the word too! ♥ Please show your support in this journey to get my masectomy (chest removal)! Whatever you donate is going to be matched by another donor organization. When I was in school I was bullied. Kids would spit on me, kick me, put my backpack inside out and push me down the stairs. When I told an administrator they told me, “A lady boy half-person like you should expect to be treated that way.” Students and teachers called me an “it” and a “tranny”. So, I withdrew out of high school my first week of junior year and got my GED.
    I’m going to the Community College of Rhode Island and majoring in fine art. I want to be a teacher. I have anxiety, ADHD and depression. I also have dysphoria. Dysphoria is the feeling I get when people use the wrong pronouns/name, looking at myself in the mirror, people calling me names, or looking at me the wrong way for being transgender.
    I have been on Testosterone since January 2013. I also got my name changed this year. However, the one thing that I still desperately need is top-surgery (masectomy) (so I won’t get Cancer and deal with dysphoria). It is all very expensive. $8,305 dollars. I need help to raise this money. I identify as gay. Some people ask me why did I “become” a boy, to like boys. My sexuality has nothing to do with my gender. I always knew I was a boy I just never told anyone. In elementary school I would stand up when they asked the boys to stand. I wanted to play sports and play videogames but I was ostracized.
    I can’t even go on the city bus without cringing at the things people call me and I can’t live without my chest binder. Some my family disowned me. It seems wherever I look I can’t pass as myself. I don’t want to prove my happiness, my gender, my pronouns or my name. I want to help all the transgender kids, even by showing them that it is possible, to dream of a day without dysphoria. Nobody should have to go through what I’ve been through.
    I didn’t choice to be this way. Life is too short to be sad. I really don’t want anymore trans people to die from ignorance or suicide. I tried to commit suicide four times. Insurance won’t pay for my surgery, please help me get one step closer. Donate 1$, even that will help. I appreciate what you can do, spread the word. All I want is equality. And of course, no more moobs. Please help, thank you for your support, I couldn’t accomplish this without you! Thank you.
