Default Tired of Word for publishing newsletter

This question is not about "big time" DTP, and I would sure appreciate some guidance or at least your thoughts. I put out a quarterly newsletter and doing the layout in Word is frustrating and time-consuming. Here's what I want to do--is there something that would meet most of these criteria?
  • Set up a basic layout with static elements
  • Have columns wrap nicely onto a subsequent, specified page
  • Create and resize layout regions
  • Use various column formats
  • Generate a table of contents
  • Throw in a bit of clip art
  • Not a lot of extra stuff to trip over as I do what I want
The newsletter is both printed out and posted on the web as a pdf. Here's the latest one to give you idea of what I'm working with: http://for-wild.org/chapters/twincities/docs/TwinCitiesWOnewsletter2005-11.pdf
