Scraper will pull historic articles from my local news site and enter them in a MySQL database. I require 4 pieces of data from each article:

Link – URL of the article

Headline – Headline, shown in lists and on each article.

Published Date – Date the article was published, shown on the article.

Story Text (Can keep the HTML formatting such as the <p> tags, but no other data such as the page navigation or adds and stuff.)

The link for the archives can be located here

Please note that there are multiple pages under some of the months shown, for example January 2008

[url removed, login to view]

has multiple pages after [url removed, login to view], they use [url removed, login to view] -> [url removed, login to view]
