newspage plugin

When attempting to activate the newspage plugin on a new website, I get the following error:
Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘new’ (T_NEW) in /home/jchobbes/public_html/wp-content/plugins/newspage/ on line 720

The page links up top are RSS feed category pages. I would REALLY like to get this plugin to work on my new site. I hope someone can help me!
