On Oct. 1, 1885, "The Dallas Morning News" began publication as the North Texas extension of A. H. Belo’s "Galveston News." The two publications were linked by telegraph to exchange information, and they maintained a statewide network of correspondents. Col. Belo’s Dallas paper was a success from the start, and by 1900 it exceeded the "Galveston News" in circulation, size and advertising revenue. "The Dallas Morning News" soon acquired its morning rival, the "Dallas Herald," which had been founded as the "Cedar Snag" by James Wellington Latimore in 1849. G. B. Dealey, who had played a major role in the establishment of "The Dallas Morning News" and had served as its first business manager, became president of A. H. Belo & Co. in 1920. In 1926, he bought control of the corporation. Under Dealey’s management, "The News" continued its leadership among Texas newspapers. It long has expressed an active interest in local, state, and national affairs, taking a firm stand against the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s, and over the years successfully encouraging integrity in government, efficiency in city management, water conservation, and a strong educational system. "The Dallas Morning News" has been an important part of the heritage of the city and the state.

Is “Google Groups” the only game in town to search Historical Contents of usenet?

Question by Buckley Valeo: Is “Google Groups” the only game in town to search Historical Contents of usenet?
Anybody remember altavista? That’s what I want. Google Groups used to be able to search historical usenet postings, but now the results are cluttered up with posts from non-usenet groups hosted exclusively by Google. I’m not interested in finding lists of usenet groups, I know they exist. I’m interested in finding an alternative way to search usenet historical posts by keyword.
No answers might suggest that it’s impossible to search the historical contents of usenet without the help of Google’s newly crippled service. If this is true, I’m am saddened.
Although searching for binaries might be the goal of some, it’s not the point of my question. I’m just looking for how to do a text search on the contents of historical usenet posts. It wouldn’t have to go back fifteen years, like altavista did, but should be at least five years. Yes, something similar can be done by trying to search the posts on thousands of web-based forums, but I don’t think any one of those is as big as usenet or has as many techies who participate and add meaningful content.

There are several Usenet search engines. Not sure how good they are and some require $ $ $ to use. But check out the following blog post and see if one might work well for you.

DMOZ has several in their directory:

and a Google search will surface a bunch:
