Thank you very much.  That did the trick.

For the archives, I would like to add that the debugging syslog
messages (if the syslog.conf is setup to log news.debug stuff)
and the first two bullet points under the SUMMARY section in the
readers.conf(5) man page helped in figuring out the order in which
groups/users are matched.

As mentioned in my original post, I had to change the hostname/IP
of the news server.  I currently have only one working incoming feed.
Others listed in incoming.conf may have stopped working a long time
ago, I don't know.  Any advice to a novice newsmaster in getting
a couple of more incoming feeds?
