Is it "Hot" or Is It "Hoot"? Let's Call the Whole Thing Off

First of all, my apologies for a cliche. The featured City/State of the week on GUS.FM is Terre Hautte, IN. Probably one of the most mispronounced cities in the world.

A debate that I had with my wife was whether it's pronounced Ter-ruh Hote, or, Terry-Hot. She's from Central Illinois. Close enough in the region to have heard it mentioned a few times. She says it's Terr-uh Hoot.

Hoot, Hot, Hote...where are we on this?
