I get the following error from the cron script accessing the news server 
but I can telnet to port 119. Any ideas? I do not have direct access to 
the news host.

Your "cron" job on maillists.nac.uci.edu
/usr/local/bin/python -S /home/users/mailman/cron/gate_news

produced the following output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/home/users/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 222, in ?
