The Digest

And the new superintendent is..


Sorry, the title is a bait. I don’t know. No one does. Except the board. But here’s the where the HSE superintendent search is🔍

  • The board narrowed one person down from a pool of applicants a few weeks ago.

  • Early next week, the details of the contract will be announced. It won’t include who the person is yet.

  • After a public review meeting, the next board meeting will have a vote to vote them in. That could be the one in February, or in March.

📆 The next board meeting is on Valentine’s Day at 6 pm at 13485 Cumberland Rd. That link will also take you to where you’ll find the contract, once it’s announced.

HamCo Market Forecast

A group of very smart people from all across Hamilton County got together and put together a market report for the county. It looks all the way to 2030 for trends, growth, and much more.

Spoiler: The data has tones of “Hamilton County is mostly better than everyone else in the country in and we have data to prove it”. Here’s a few fun stats from it.

  • The fastest growing sector by % is Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services at 13% growth by 2030 (p. 42)

  • 15,700 workers will be needed from outside Hamilton County to fuel the expected growth by 2030 (p. 85)

  • Home health/personal care, cooks, and fast-food counter workers are the largest growing occupation (p. 58)

  • All schools are doing well. See the below graphic for their grades:

The Happenings

Weekend preview 📆

🧊 Veal’s Ice Tree is still holding strong! The Veal family ice engineers are so good that it’s withstood a week of warm temps and rain. It’s free to visit at 6445 Mimosa Lane from 8 am to 10 pm. This is a must see no matter your age! It’s truly amazing. (link)

> Calling anything the “the most successful American play in Broadway history” is a big talk. The play the New York Times is referencing is “To Kill a Mockingbird”. The adaption is happening at Butler this weekend. There are multiple shows throughout the weekend. Tickets here.

🏀 Donkey Basketball is exactly what it sounds like. Basketball while riding a donkey. I’m sure there’s more to it, but that should get you in the door. Happens tonight at HSE at 7 pm. Supports the HSEHS FFA. Tickets here.

> It’s the weekend! Which means Devour Indy time. Use our online guide to all the restaurants in Fishers. And if you have ChatGPT+, you can use the food bot I made. It knows every restaurant’s menu, prices, locations, and more. Craving something with eggs in it? IT KNOWS! Try it here. Free version coming soon that will have more restaurants. Let me know which I should add first.

> Conner Prairie’s first annual Winter on the Prairie is open today through March. There are too many events going on throughout the day to list here. So check out their site and purchase tickets here.

> Live music lists have been moved to the bottom of this email due to size!

Quick headlines and things to know from all around 🌐

📚️ The library has a new website. Websites of these scale are a huge undertaking, and the furniture is still being moved around. This is their new website link.

📱 If you’re an iPhone user, update your phone! The latest release of iOS unlocks a “stolen device protection”. It will make it very hard for someone to do something to your phone (like unlocking it, reading messages, etc) if it gets stolen. You can learn more here.

The Cheeney Creek Trail parking lot is getting revamped. If you’ve ever parked there on 106th street, you know it can be a little sketchy. Unfortunately, trees are going to have to be cleared for a safer parking lot to exist. (link)

Indiana is a top 10 state for remote working. This isn’t too surprising. With a relatively low cost of living + getting coastal wages = profit. (link)

In 1999, the NSA banned Furbys from their office. They were believed to be a threat because they listen and learn from speech patterns. The internal documents and memos around it just dropped. It’s really hard to read this and not smile or laugh 😂 (link)
