Remembering John Harbine


XENIA – There are many stories about the rather eccentric attorney John Harbine. One of the most recited was that he had a habit of carrying a grocery basket over his arm which also contained a loaded revolver. He walked all over Xenia and would stop at the local grocery store to purchase radishes and cottage cheese, always attempting to pay for the purchase with a $100 bill. At that time, making change for that size bill was a challenge, so he usually got his purchase at no charge.
