IUBio archive has back issues of all bionet news back to Dec 1991.
This news is perhaps easiest read/search using gopher to
ftp.bio.indiana.edu:/Network-News/Bionet News at IUBio archive <?>
Or use wais to that site, and search database named "netnews", e.g.

 waissearch -h ftp.bio.indiana.edu -d netnews dalton

I'll let Kenton or others answer for their bionet news archive --
I suspect they do have wais & gopher searches of their news.
