Volunteers Needed

August 13, 2021 - 12:36pm -- staubach.9@osu.edu

4-H is a community of young people across America who are learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills as they work in partnership with caring adults.  What does that mean? In 4-H we are committed to helping young people develop skills that will help them succeed. We want to empower all youth to reach their full potential.

In Hamilton County, we improve our communities through our Community Clubs, SPIN Clubs, Camps and Classroom Programs.

ChickQuest: Let's Learn about Life

April 23, 2021 - 10:24am -- staubach.9@osu.edu

They are fluffy, they are cute, and they are part of the food system. Hamilton County ChickQuest is well underway with the first clutch of chicks finding their new home on Friday, April 23, 2021.

This spring more than 600 eggs were incubated, hatched, and cared for by students across Hamilton County. From the youth in the urban core to those in the far reaches of the county, every teacher shared the same story of wonder and excitement, frustration, and relief.

If you have never hatched an egg, it is not a terribly difficult process if you have the right equipment.

No, I understood that amid COVID-19 more people are shopping online, I understood that my order was a luxury and not a necessity. How do I deal with disappointment, it’s a typical pattern.

Address Disappointment

Two Minutes with Tony: My Flower Bed

April 6, 2020 - 2:12pm -- staubach.9@osu.edu

Last fall I planted a few Daffodils in an expanded flowerbed. It was a welcomed sight when their bright yellow flowers began to appear this spring.

But the flowers are starting to fade, and the weeds are showing through. And I’m realizing a very important lesson.

Weed control is about long-term lifestyle choices not short-term aggression.
