Volunteering to Celebrate the Season

December 7, 2018 - 2:37pm -- staubach.9@osu.edu

The sun might be shining but the biting cold of a December morning was an excellent reminder that the holiday season is upon us. To celebrate, the OSU Extension, Hamilton County staff took time on Friday to put their own interests aside and volunteer with Valley Interfaith. This annual volunteer project serves as the kick off to their holiday celebrations by giving back to an agency they have partnered with in the past.

Two Minutes with Tony: My Own Life's Narrative

When my life comes to a close I wonder what stories they’ll tell. Will there be narratives of bravery in the face of adversity, stories of compassion in moments of trouble or quips about the funny things I said.

There’s no way to know exactly what history will report so, I must live my life in away so that everything is worthy of note.

Two Minutes with Tony: Powerful Passion

Failure only comes to those who lack passion and love for the task at hand.

There is no success without passion. There is no love without understanding. There is no power without cooperation. The reality is that the greatest leaders are followers, playing a role in a successful system. The sun will rise tomorrow but, will you be here to enjoy that warmth?

There are three important elements I consider when trying to take a good, long distance picture. Stability, clarity and purpose.

First, to get a clear picture, I need to make sure that the camera is stable. So, I use a tri-pod.  

Second, when I zoom in, the atmosphere tends to wash out the image. To see the image clearly, I need to take photographs on a clear day and use editing software to render a usable image.
