Sharon Durbin, executive director of Land of Lincoln Goodwill Industries, agreed with Lawrence Thursday that more trains on 10th Street aren't a good idea. While Goodwill is seeking a buyer for its building at 815 N. 11th Street, Durbin said, more trains don't belong in the neighborhood, even if her organization leaves.
"We have lots of homeless individuals on this side of town who may or may not be aware of their surroundings and walk in front of a train," Durbin said.

The emphasis remains on storefront retail outlets, said Sharon Durbin, president and CEO of Land of Lincoln Goodwill Industries. But she said the organization found certain items bring more in an online auction than on the shelf.
"We had one item, a diamond bracelet, that one of the managers thought at first might be worth $3.50, but she decided to take a chance and have it evaluated. They found out it was a real diamond. We put it on our online site, and it brought $1,601. It comes right back to our mission dollars," Durbin said.
She also relates the story of a California Goodwill that sold a painting online for $15,000.
The site works very much like eBay with minimum starting bids, number of bids and the auction end-time. Categories range from musical instruments to religious merchandise and dolls to sporting goods.
"Anytime we have an item we think might bring more on a bidding process, we put it up," Durbin said.
She added that the group is trying to raise additional funds to aid expansion of the Land of Lincoln worker-training program to include anyone who has lost their job, as well as people just released from prison.
Previously, the program had been limited to people with disabilities.
"We've seen more demand in the last six or seven months, and now we have this new area opened up," Durbin said.

Durbin contacted Goodwill International about the cash, seeking guidance on how to handle it. Now, it's up to the owner to claim it. Whoever lost it has 90 days to prove it is theirs or it becomes Goodwill's money.
"There was no paper or any other identification in the donation that would help us find the person," Durbin says.
Whoever lost the money should contact Durbin at 789-0400. She is going to ask the Springfield police for help handling the claims.
In order to claim the money, the owner will have to be able to say how much there is, what denominations it is in and in what kind of donation it was found.
Durbin says Goodwill officials are sure the donation came from Springfield, and she is almost certain she knows what part of town the donation came from.
