I think as long as HubPages can't find the duplicate, then you're fine. A search is performed each time you publish a hub, looking for an exact duplicate of the words you posted. If it finds a match anywhere on the internet, your hub gets flagged.

As long as there are no copies anywhere that search engines can find; for instance if the newspaper also published some of its articles online.
