What do you use for brown in the middle of summer?

I've got the typical urban/suburban yard- small. Last year I started my first compost pile in late summer/early fall and it was easy getting a good balance of brown and green. This year the pile was started in early spring. There was enough brown around then to make the pile happy but now all I have to add are kitchen scraps and grass clippings. What is good brown stuff? Newspapers, maybe? How do you keep your compost balanced?
