Bloomington keeps racking up the accolades.

Over the weekend, a Wall Street Journal
focused on the city as a vibrant, low-cost alternative to Sun Belt locations for retirees. Congestion is low,
there are two hospitals, and plenty of natural beauty is just beyond city limits.

Also late last week, the Federal Reserve Bank published
a study
showing Bloomington as one of the most prosperous university towns in the Midwest. This despite ongoing manufacturing
losses like the closure of Thomson Consumer Electronicsâ?? television plant.

Has Bloomington become the best city its size in Indiana? Or is it the best city in the state, period?
