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?
