There are (of course) several ways to do this. I use suck, which
downloads news and stores it on a local news spool. This is probably
more work than you want to bother with.
I suggest you look at slrn, which comes with "slrnpull", a program
that downloads articles locally but does *not* require you to set up
innd on your computer.
There are other choices (leafnode, slirp) out there as well.
