Wow...I only caught the end of he conversation, but either you didn't hear the entire interview or you only heard what you wanted to hear. That fact he often worked unpaid due to the budget crunches the Register would find itself in that caused him and his staff to get laid off periodically. The fact that he will now be able to better assist small pass-through towns with hosting. Mentioned logistically things like porta poddies as well as local charities benefiting more. Things he wasn't allowed as much influence before. The fact that the end of RAGBRAI was rumored over the last few years so there were always questions on how long it would last.
