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.
