Wilber Glasby knows some folks think he’s a hoarder, but he sees cash value in his eight-acre junk-strewn kingdom in Yale, Oklahoma. Deaf since birth and retired from laying railroad track, the scrap dealer says he now lives off selling old soda machines, rusty farm implements and anything else on the place. His wife, Jane, hopes American Pick...
