    Well that site is using greymatter which can be difficult to setup. Perhaps you can try newspro . !! It's a lot simpler.

    NewsPHP get's my vote. I've used it on many occasions; it's extremely simple to install as well.

    I like News Publisher. It is easy to install and customize.

    Looks like that site is using Grey Matter, never used it myself:

    I believe Coranto (formerly known as NewPro) can be downloaded at: http://www.gweilo.org/coranto/ that's where I downloaded it about a month ago.

    Check out Moveable type (http://www.moveabletype.org) or PMachine (http://www.pmachine.com).

    I know people that use them both for news on their site - and they work very well.

    They're not just for weblogs.

    I like the greymatter script and I'm currently using it on http://U2audio.com

    It can be a bit of a hassle to customize but well worth it.

    That's my .02 cents worth.

    They don't update Greymatter anymore, and if you post frequently, it can be a pain to rebuild entries. MT can be difficult to customize. I like pMachine and b2. My journal uses b2 and I only had to edit two files, very easy to maintain.
    It makes no difference which one of us you vote for. Either way, your planet is doomed... DOOMED!
