If you learn Scribus well then you can probalbly do anything you need 
to do for a newsletter in it. The method may seem strange but hte 
results are achievable.

I use TeX on Linux for just about everything---for sale signs for the 
yard, sheet music collections for my choir, sequentially numbered 
armbands for dog shows, novels, memoirs, the whole bit.  But I have 
been using it since the mid 90's.
