Top-10 Headlines

What has become somewhat of an annual tradition is for us to do our best David Letterman impression by examining IHCDA’s “Top Ten”. However, instead of using humor as our fellow Hoosier and former Late Night Host famously did for decades, we will focus on listening to you. Because instead of coming up with this list on our own, this Top Ten is based on website and social media interaction. So I ask that you please join us as we look back at our top stories of 2016.
