The Digest

Mudsock showdown 🥊 

One big thing: The winner of tonight’s HSE vs. Fishers football game will take home the coveted Mudsock trophy.

Varsity teams have been battling for this trophy for seventeen years. If you have (or are) a senior at either of these schools, this has been going on for as long as you’ve been around 🤣 The winner of tonight’s game will pass off or keep the trophy for another year. Here’s the stats:

  • HSE: 13
  • Fishers: 3
  • Ties: 1

The great golf wars


One big thing: Gray Eagle is building their version of Top Golf.

The Fishers Plan Commission voted unanimously to push the Gray Eagle Top Golf development to the City Council later this month. Here’s what’s coming:

  • A new building & restaurant
  • A barrier netting system
  • New lighting system

Go deeper: The barrier netting system proposed would be 160 feet tall (half the size of the Statue of Liberty) with large nets and support poles. It won’t be as bright as Top Golf. Link to post here.

Library drama

Fishers took heat for a library decision it didn’t exactly make. That might change. Despite being a library that serves Fishers and Noblesville, the cities have no say in the board itself.

Why it matters: When the library moved The Fault in Our Stars, Fishers took the blame at a national level during the outrage. The city’s reputation was dragged.

It would require a change in state law. Something Hamilton County officials seem willing to do*. It will have to wait until January for any change to be made.

What’s the good news?! Fishers Digest!! 😂 💯 WTHR interviewed me and a few others on Pickleball in Fishers on their Good News segment. The headline was too good not to use. Fishers Digest IS the good news in Fishers.
