four new tin stars

I keep encountering situations where I think that certain folks are already sheriffs and then am surprised that they are not. Then I think "I really should make them a sheriff today" and then get wrapped up in other projects.

I've been having these thoughts for well over a year now and I'm finally doing it!

I hereby promote these four folks to sheriff:




Henry Wong

Christophe Verré

Katrina Owen

Campbell Ritchie





You all need to go and update the staff page.

If one of the current sheriffs could add these folks to the sheriffs list, that would be nice.

Now those are four exceptionally nice folks, and great additions to our sheriff list.... I truly wouldn't be the person I am now had I never interacted with them.

Awesome!

Maybe now that Campbell is a sheriff, he can find a suitable picture of himself for the staff page.

I'm still waiting on the free horse EFH told me I'd get for agreeing to be a bartender. I am assuming the wait for the corporate jet will be longer.

Thank you.

But it's more of a responsibility than a privilege, I am sure.
