RICHLAND, WA - A Richland man is opening the doors of his private practice to the men and women who serve our nation.

Doctor Joe Streetman already sees mental health patients suffering from mental disorders that have served in the military. Many of them come to him free of charge thanks to grants and programs.

Streetman can connect monitors to their heads that detect brain waves. If the person thinks happy thoughts they successfully navigate through a maze-like video game. He believes this form of training is great therapy but says he can do so much more with help from the public.

"The Veterans Administration has had some struggles in helping these folks out. I think we have to do everything that we can. These people have given so much to help the country out, protect our freedom and protect our American way of life," explained Streetman. 

Streetman has started a fundraising campaign online to pay for upgrades to his system to further help soldiers. It would include more of those monitors to get a stronger evaluation of their mental health. He says currently we don't have a system in the Tri-Cities to do these full evaluations. He is offering his time but says he can't afford to pay for those veterans to travel for these evaluations.

    KENNEWICK: Good news for all of you bargain shoppers out there, Goodwill is opening a brand new store in Kennewick sometime next year. Thanks to a 3.1 million dollar loan and lots of planning, a very large patch of dirt will be home to a 20,000 square foot Goodwill; half warehouse and processing, half retail. The Kennewick store will be closing, however. You can still say, out with your old couches, TV's and clothing, and *into someone else's hands, just at a different location. ...More >>
