Here's a testament to thrift. Today an Akron-area retiree turned in more than one-million pennies at a coin-counting machine. 78-year-old Eugene Sukie of Barberton got $10,480.13 back for his more than three decades of saving. Over the years, Sukie rolled the pennies in wrappers and stored them in 575 cigar boxes organized by year and mint. The pennies, weighing more than three tons, were trucked to a coins-to-cash machine at a Lyndhurst supermarket in suburban Cleveland.
