It’s a good time to be from Terre Haute. On Wednesday, September 1, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce recognized Terre Haute as the 2010 ‘Community of the Year’. The Tribune-Star article reports that the local chamber highlighted the city’s Riverscape initiative, investment in the downtown, the Children’s Museum and the Farmers Market as examples. Not to mention the improvements to local health-care facilities and investments at Indiana State University—all topics highlighted in WTIU’s Our Town: Terre Haute.
