Jean Binder's Blog

You can browse through and read entries from Jean's complete historical blog archives here.

A California Girl Scout of the 50's, Jean Binder still loves the outdoors and is an avid swimmer. She has a bachelors degree from the U. of Wisconsin and an MS in Special Ed. from FHSU. Having retired from roles of special education teacher, financial adviser and pastor's [and erstwhile politician's] wife, Jean is now an involved landlord and is active in her local Lutheran Church.

Jean and her husband John raised three children. One is a Marine serving in Iraq, one manages a Subway shop, and the youngest is a successful website designer. Jean and John also helped raise a foster-child. Now, they're raising a teenaged grandson and often visit a new, young grandson in KC. Jean is proud of their extended family, too. They all get along and get together whenever they can. Jean and John hope to go to Europe soon. John will be a Rotary District Governor and the position will take them to England, also allowing time for genealogical studies in Vienna.

Jean is a quiet activist. She once spear-headed a project to collect medical and other survival supplies for the Lutheran Church in Malawi, Africa. Ultimately, a shipping container was filled and delivered to Malawi. Jean frequently writes letters to editors, most often writing about injustice. John will hear Jean say, "I feel a letter coming on." She has written about education and about integration of public housing in suburban neighborhoods. Jean has protested the improper location of proposed industrial windmills in a residential area and even protested cartoons she felt were inflammatory. She's also passionate about politics. We hope that she'll always say, "I feel a blog post coming on." Jean welcomes mail here - jrbjhb at hotmail dot com.

She welcomes you to view her blog archives here.
