I'm running RedHat 5.2, GNU bash, version 1.14.7(1).  If I type a
command name that isn't in the path, like
I get
    bash: 33: command not found
If I create a script but start it with a #! line that's for a
non-existent shell, like
    #! /usr/local/bin/NARF
I get
    bash: /home/tmcd/local/bin/test/33: No such file or directory
If I start it with a #! line that's correct and have a command that
doesn't exist, like
    #! /bin/bash
I get
    /home/tmcd/local/bin/test/33: frgdfjkfjkldjlfj: command not found
If I run the script using a literal "bash", like
    PATH=~/"local/bin/test:$PATH" bash 33
I get
    33: frgdfjkfjkldjlfj: command not found

So the only thing that matches your second reported message is my
first test, which would indicate that "fetchnews" is not in /usr/sbin
or you didn't actually put /usr/sbin in your path -- which seems
absurd!  Perhaps reply to this with the output of
    type fetchnews
    echo "$PATH"
appended?  Perhaps edit fetchnews to put
    set -x
near the top so you can trace execution?
