LYNDHURST, Ohio (AP) -- If a penny saved is a penny earned, then Eugene Sukie earned $10,480.13 in his three-plus decades of thriftiness.
Over the years, Eugene Sukie, a retired glass plant supervisor, rolled the pennies in wrappers and stored them in 575 cigar boxes organized by year and mint. He had them counted Tuesday -- by a machine, of course.
The pennies, over one million of them and weighing 3 1/2 tons, were trucked from Sukie's home in Barberton to a coins-to-cash machine at a suburban Cleveland supermarket.
