The Digest

Fishers Margaritaville

Ever heard of "Buffett Parkway" in Fishers, Indiana? In the 80s, a golden opportunity presented itself to John L. Cox (a Fishers Police Officer). Hamilton County had a no-repeat rule for street names. So as a Buffett superfan, he joked about naming a street after the singer to the right people.

Well, it happened. And Cox was able to personally hand Jimmy a copy of the street sign. All thanks to Cox, the first sign ever named after Buffet is in Fishers. Read John’s full story here.

What does a consultant do?

Consultants ain’t cheap. But what do they actually do?**

Driving the news: The HSE School board recently hired a full-time contractor to find a new Superintendent. Here’s a breakdown of what’s been signed:

  1. For the service of providing a mentor for Matt Kegley, interim superintendent:

    • The fee is calculated at a daily rate

    • Daily rate: $750.00 per day plus mileage

  2. For the service of conducting a superintendent search for HSE:

    • The fee is a flat fee

    • Flat fee: $15,000 plus mileage

Yes, and: Talks are underway about hiring a financial consultant to collaborate with the current CFO. The prospective contract is set at $4,000 per month. While we wait for more updates — what do you think?

Wine is tricky. Wouldn't it be great to have a personal sommelier tell you exactly which wines you'll like and what to pair them with? One problem. Not many of us can afford to add a sommelier to our payroll.

Enter Bright Cellars: a monthly wine club that sends you wines based on your palate. You will take a 30-second quiz, and boom. Personalized wine recommendations.

Then they'll send you six bottles perfectly matched to your taste. Each wine will have an education card with serving temperature, food pairings, growing region, and pronunciation (so you sound like a pro saying Sancerre at your next tasting).

And if you don't like a bottle, Bright Cellars will make it right in your next box.

So try Bright Cellars now — Fishers Digest readers get $100 off their first box for a limited time.
