Help the Haute

While my site is mostly about hitting trails and using Linux, I wanted to make a list of resources for Terre Haute. I believe it could be a great city: a clean, inviting, safe place to raise a family. A city with secure work. A city where its residents are happy and healthy. A place with outdoor recreation and opportunities.
