Honesty is paying off for a Bulgarian immigrant who was employed at the Glen Carbon, Ill., Goodwill store. When she found $7,500 in cash among donated shoes Nov. 7, she immediately turned in the money to her employer. The rightful owner was found and the Goodwill employee, Teodora Petrova, has since received at least four checks – one from the family, one from Goodwill and two from private donors moved by her honesty in news accounts.
