Things Caribbean


A NEW English Caribbean Newspaper From New York City Serving Guyanese and West Indians.

ImpactNews, a free biweekly publication, arrived on newsstands December 1st 2002. It is a newspaper that reports news, and addresses issues of importance to the Guyanese and Caribbean community in North America.  Its editor promises that it will provide in-depth, responsible and balanced coverage of relevant subjects and events. " Persons of varying perspectives will have open access to a forum for intelligent debate through articles and letters."  ImpactNews is being developed as easy and interesting to read and a reliable reference point for the extended readership. This welcome resource is to be sustained by advertisement since it is also a business entity.

Although ImpactNews is published from NYC it will serve the metropolitan cities and the Caribbean and showcase 'things Guyanese and Caribbean'. For example, small and developing businesses will be regularly featured; it will highlight noteworthy family events, including the traditional in memoriam reminders of the passing of loved ones. Guyanese and Caribbean organizations and consulates can communicate with their memberships and communities through this medium.

The first edition of ImpactNews brings a welcome air of freshness. It comes like an early morning sea breeze to the New York City environment overrun by the plethora of publications supposedly serving English speaking Caribbean people, and Guyanese in particular. ImpactNews has a thoughtful, even erudite tone but it is not pedantic or scholarly, it is, well, cultured. The Economist comes to mind.

The ImpactNews front-page graphics are simple yet arresting. On the left of the masthead, which has a green background, is a circle of flags with the word free in the center. In the center of the masthead is the city skyline, in black, under a big white IMPACT and a smaller News. On the right is a logo made of a gold colored torch, with a red and yellow flame, that forms the T at the center of the words "Torch of the Caribbean".  The headline "An Uphill Task…But Together We Will Achieve" is printed at a forty-five degree ascending angle across the tabloid-size page. Poignant imagery.

Inside, the Impact caption introduces several of the articles of each page except the Editorial and Opinion pages. The range of topics is impressive. There is Impact On:

  • Caribbean Affairs
  • Health
  • Women
  • Career/Education
  • Entertainment
  • People/Happenings
  • Food/Dining
  • Foods
  • Sport
  • Real Estate
  • Business

The Business section is devoted in this inaugural issue to "My Card Is My Bond". Appropriate in sentiment and deed. It is here that nineteen small businesses and organizations demonstrate their financial support by placing an advertisement.

You, too, can join the other advertisers and form a subscription bond with the editor, Godfrey Wray, formerly editor of the Guyana Chronicle. You can start your annual subscription for US $24. 00 by contacting ImpactNews, Inc., at 718-479-2600 or send an email to raysons2001@yahoo.com.
