Trusted, tried and true. That’s the reason why United American Mortgage has been successful for over 25 years. Since 1993, UAMC specializes in providing mortgage-financing solutions to homeowners and homebuyers.

You’re almost tired of reading about it but it’s true: the mortgage meltdown hurt more than a few and people are still trying to recover. It’s hard to know whom to trust. With many mortgage companies competing and failing, UAMC has found itself expanding into 9 states. Originally formed to provide for the specific needs of Southern California borrowers seeking mortgage products tailored for them, UAMC has made it their personalized business to get to know and help you.

Hensling DStylePhoto 23 1 3“We’ve grown substantially because we have the ability to adapt to the ever-changing marketplace,” says UAMC President Al W. Hensling. “We are in the home business, the helping-people business. Yes, it requires us to at times work around the clock. Yes, we have to keep up-to-date on the latest products and regulations. We take our clients and what we do seriously because at the end of the day, everyone should either be in the home of their dreams or keep the one they love so much. To some people, it’s just paperwork and numbers. But to us, it’s personal. It’s home.”

Their incredibly impressive, rare, referral-only business model may also be the key to understanding their success, as customers flock just to see if UAMC truly walks the walk. To them, offering you efficient, cost-effect and timely service is just a day’s business.

These days, most companies feel the need to plaster those words all over their advertisements. UAMC doesn’t need to express that they go above and beyond, they just think that it should come standard. “I guess you could say we just want to help how we can. Since our business is referral based, we truly get to know your family and friends.

happy wht familyUAMC continues to evolve with new products and financing solutions to the ever-changing Southern California real estate market. While many have given up the idea of owning a home or even refinancing, UAMC holds to the knowledge that today’s new and innovative programs are making it easier than ever to purchase or refinance.

“After a period of time in which it was extremely difficult to obtain a mortgage, things have started to normalize and lending guidelines are starting to loosen,” says Al. “The ‘Mortgage Meltdown’ created a great deal of uncertainty in the marketplace and made it difficult for so many to secure financing. We understand that a lot of people are scared to see where they stand and that’s ok. We just want you to know that it doesn’t have to be this way. Most of our clients feel the same way. Some people tell us they didn’t even want to find out about their options in the first place because they didn’t understand the jargon. Well, we aren’t the company that just explains things once. We’re with you step by step, no matter what.”

“If you’re considering anything in our sector then consider us the right team for the job,” Al says. “Call us, visit us online, or stop by the office anytime. We’re always on standby to see how we can help you. Don’t let the mortgage meltdown of yesterday affect where you’re at today. We’ve got the cutting edge techniques and knowledge to help your unique situation. We’re ready to meet your challenges and assist you into getting or keeping your home!

As the economy continues to grow and we experience job growth, more families will have an opportunity to experience the ben- efits of home ownership.

“As the Economy continues to grow and we experience job growth, more families will have an opportunity to experience the benefits of home ownership. Clients always ask what is going to happen to interest rates. I really wish I had that crystal ball to answer them accurately. It is difficult to say what rates will do, as markets have not reacted to this economy as they had previously. I counsel clients to borrow based on need and what they can afford. Loan programs are changing almost daily. As we move farther away from the mortgage meltdown of 2008, more and more programs and financing options will open up. But always be wary of the deal that sounds too good to be true. Even though recent changes have cleaned up the lending industry, there are still people out there that are not looking out for the client’s best interest. Families should always determine the experience level of their mortgage professional, along with checking references from previous clients.”

One of the finest examples of romantic ballet, Giselle is the tale of love, betrayal and redemption between the peasant girl Giselle and Prince Albrecht.

As an admitted hopeless romantic, those of us who love our 1950’s and early 60’s Rock & Roll and Doo Wop music cannot get enough of the nostalgic sounds of the era. There is something magical in the music.

There is something magical in the music. The groups, artists and duos of the fifties wormed their way into our hearts and have been embedded in our memories, our friendships, associations and our lives. For two minutes, it is like reviewing a photograph or an old movie. It is replaying the scene in our mind that transforms us to that simpler time. The lyrics of many of the songs have helped shape a generation of personal values that continue today. That is why I always end my radio show with a song to remember that moment. Because it is all in the memories.

As you read the lyrics of some of the songs included in this, Part Two, close your eyes and remember where you were, whom you were with, and how you felt at that time. The prose or poetry is better than a greeting card because it keeps being repeated every time the song is played or sung. After all, the memories are in the music!

IT SEEMS WE’VE STOOD AND TALKED LIKE THIS BEFORE

WE LOOKED AT EACH OTHER IN THE SAME WAY THEN, BUT I CAN’T REMEMBER…
WHERE OR WHEN.
SOME THINGS THAT HAPPEN, FOR THE FIRST TIME.
DION AND THE BELMONTS – WHERE OR WHEN

SINCERELY, OH YES, SINCERELY
CAUSE I LOVE YOU SO DEARLY.
PLEASE SAY YOU’LL BE MINE
OH, YOU KNOW HOW I LOVE YOU, I’LL DO ANYTHING FOR YOU!
THE MOONGLOWS – SINCERELY

I’M THINKING OF OUR LOST ROMANCE, AND HOW IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN.
OH, IF WE ONLY COULD START OVER, AGAIN.
OH, HOW I LONG TO DO THE THINGS WE USED TO DO.
OH, IF WE ONLY COULD START OVER, AGAIN.
LEE ANDREWS AND THE HEARTS – TEARDROPS

ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE THE WORLD SEEM BRIGHT, ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE THE DARKNESS BRIGHT. ONLY YOU, AND YOU ALONE, CAN THRILL ME LIKE YOU DO.
ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE THIS CHANGE IN ME, FOR ITS TRUE, YOU ARE MY DESTINY
WHEN YOU HOLD MY HAND, I UNDERSTAND, THE MAGIC THAT YOU DO
THE PLATTERS – ONLY YOU

I REMEMBER, THAT NIGHT IN MAY, THE STARS WERE BRIGHT ABOVE.
I’LL HOPE AND I’LL PRAY, TO KEEP, YOUR PRECIOUS LOVE
PROMISE I’LL NEVER, EVER LET YOU GO! IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT.
THE FIVE SATINS – (I REMEMBER) IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT

YOU’VE GOT TO GIVE A LITTLE, TAKE A LITTLE, AND LET YOUR POOR HEART BREAK A LITTLE.
THAT’S THE GLORY OF LOVE.
THE VELVETONES – GLORY OF LOVE

COME TO ME WHEN I AM LONELY. KISS ME WHEN YOU HOLD ME TIGHT.
KISS ME SWEET AND GENTLE, WHEN WE SAY GOODNIGHT.
OH, HOW HAPPY WE SHOULD BE, WHEN, WE KEEP THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF LOVE!
HARVEY AND THE MOONGLOWS – THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF LOVE

YOU’RE A THOUSAND MILES AWAY, BUT I STILL HAVE YOUR LOVE TO REMEMBER YOU BY
ON MY KNEES EVERY DAY, ALL I DO IS PRAY
BABY JUST FOR YOU, LOVE YOU ALWAYS.
DADDY’S COMING HOME SOON.
Wally Roker & THE HEARTBEATS – A THOUSAND MILES AWAY

The prose and poetry could go on and on with lyrics and memories but, you get the idea. There is an agonizing awareness that transforms, not because they may be corny or even sophomoric, they are ours. The songs, artists and lyrics called out to us, the audience. One cannot repress what has been learned about ourselves listening to this music. It is in the artistry of this romantic music that causes a response in a mystical and magical way. It is a music to feel, not just listen to.
“Joe D, The Doctor of Doo Wop”tm


Joe D 1Making Your Memories is a commentary on the music of the 1950’s and early 60’s. “Joe D” is an on-air talent for Orange County based KSBR FM 88.5 and is host of “MAKING YOUR MEMORIES” Sunday nights at 10PM. He is also author of “Making Your Memories with Rock & Roll and Doo Wop - -The Music and Artists of the 1950’s and early 60’s.” website: www.making-your-memories.com

The first thing you notice about Dr. Alan Beyer is his energy. He walks fast –trekking miles every day, as he makes rounds in the hospital and in the orthopedic clinic. He thinks fast. Ask him a current sports question – about any team or individual sport – and he has a passionate opinion, complete with a well-thought rationale. Besides his talented hands and medical mind, perhaps that’s why sports fans, professional athletes and weekend warriors have been drawn to him for his entire medical career.

“I have always loved sports since I was a child, but my athletic skills never matched my desire,” he stresses. “So having a career in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery was my way of still being in the sports game. Keeping people active, doing what they love, became my life’s work.”

DrBeyer4And his life’s passion. He prepares extensively for his weekly live sports medicine radio show, Doctor in the Dugout, that airs each Saturday at noon on KLAA Angel’s radio. He studies the “back-story” for insights into each guest and the week’s sports and injury news. He then prepares his opening monologue, typically a hot topic in sports medicine such as concussions or a professional athlete injury report. He then relates his own experience with the subject, offering up anecdotal stories that bring the human factor into focus.

“I think it’s his gift of language and personal experience with his own surgery that makes him such a great doctor, surgeon and radio talk show host,” said Dr. James T. Caillouette, an orthopedic surgeon colleague at Hoag Orthopedic Institute. “He knows what it’s like not to be able to do the things you love, such as golf or just being active. He’s lived it and he’s honest and candid about sharing the struggles of his own health issues.”

Keeping people active, doing what they love, became my life’s work.

A few years ago, Dr. Beyer had his own left hip replaced. “Walking, golfing and standing for sometimes 10 hours a day in the operating room took their toll on my hip, causing arthritis and intense pain,” he shares. So now I’m the patient, having the same fears and anxieties as all my patients do.”

Dr. Beyer shared with the world his own hip surgery, taping a video diary of his pre-op, operation and post-op experience. The videos are available online at www.orthopedichospital.com/video-center. “Self-recording myself after surgery was surreal,” he recalls. “But I wanted to share with others my point of view of the experience as both a patient and a surgeon. Patients have told me that my videos helped them and reduced their fears of having joint replacement surgery. It’s what we try to do each week on the radio show – share human stories about overcoming health obstacles and keeping our bodies active.”

Besides his busy orthopedic practice schedule and his weekly live talk show, Dr. Beyer also finds time to volunteer to the community. “During football season for most of my career, I was on the sidelines of University High each Friday night as a volunteer, ensuring high school players were in good hands if they were injured,” he says. He’s also been medical director for the Maccabee Games held in Orange County as well as the Orange County Breakers, professional tennis team. He currently lives in Newport Beach with his wife and two daughters.

He also been honored by the local Arthritis Foundation for his contributions to the community and has been actively involved in their Walk to Cure Arthritis event held at Angels Stadium each year.

Alan H. Beyer, M.D., is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon on Hoag Orthopedic Institute’s medical staff specializing in sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery of the knee and total knee replacement. He has been interviewed numerous times for his insights on sports-related injurie by outlets like The Los Angeles Times, The Daily News, ESPN Radio, NBC Sports Radio and many others. His weekly live radio show Doctor in the Dugout airs each Saturday at noon on KLAA Angel’s radio. Dr. Beyer graduated from Georgetown University School of Medicine. During his residency at the Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York, he became the Chief Resident of Orthopedics and completed a sports medicine fellowship at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic in Los Angeles before joining Newport Orthopedic Institute in Newport Beach.

Many residents of Laguna Woods are the perfect example of “healthy aging” – whether it’s participating in competitive sports, working out at the gym, or a simply going for a walk every day. Today’s older adults are much more active than their parents ever were, and the unfortunate side effects of a more active and healthy lifestyles can be sports-related injuries and living in pain. To address this common issue in active, older adults, Dr. Alan Beyer, medical director of the Hoag Orthopedic Institute in Irvine, and host of the popular Saturday afternoon AM830 KLAA Angel’s radio show Doctor in the Dugout will be appearing regularly on Channel 6’s This Day.

DrBeyer2Dr. Beyer, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery of the knee and total knee replacement, discusses the causes of various sports injuries, joint and bone issues affecting the older adult, and prevention, among other topics. His Channel 6 segments will include interviews with leading Orange County physicians and surgeons who will share their insights to empower patients to make better health care decisions.

“Education is a crucial ingredient in preventing injuries for older adults,” Dr. Beyer says. “We see older adults in our medical offices every day and they are often dealing with many of the same joint and bone issues as younger athletes. We want to help Laguna Woods residents prevent injuries and remain active. I know how much it means for many to play golf or tennis regularly and to do it without pain or suffering. We aim to help them with good, sound education on the show.”

A longtime resident of Orange County, Dr. Beyer began hosting his radio show four years ago. Each Saturday, he drives to Angel’s Stadium to the broadcast booth of KLAA AM 830, the flagship station for Angel’s baseball games, for his live, one-hour show at noon. The show is the only sports medicine radio show based in Orange County and has generated a loyal listening audience. Each week he chats with sports stars from the NFL, PGA, NBA and MLB and shares insights into what is new and trending in the treatment of orthopedic injuries.

“We get calls and emails at the radio show from many residents of Laguna Woods asking good questions about various orthopedic injuries tied to golf, tennis or other activities,” Dr. Beyer said. “So we thought it would be a good idea to bring our radio show concept to Channel 6 so we could spend more time talking about health issues that can help residents remain active, healthy and happy. For older adults, the social and mental health benefits of being active are so overwhelmingly positive that I think it’s important to ensure they can continue doing what makes them feel like themselves.”

Humorous, talkative and enthusiastic about educating others about injury prevention, Dr. Beyer is the perfect guest host for Channel 6’s This Week, especially considering his own personal experiences. “I’m an active person who also had a hip replacement a few years ago,” he shared. “I know what it is like on both sides of the surgical table and exam room. I also know what it was like to live and try to be active when you are in constant pain. Empathy is a great teacher and I like to share my own experiences with my audience.”

Prostate cancer is the one of the most treatable cancers in men —as long as it’s detected early. The best way to do that is through regular screening.

But knowing when to start and how often to get it done can be confusing. The recommended schedule for prostate cancer screening has been the subject of intense debate over the last few years. Some expert bodies, such as the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, have even changed their position on how frequently, and at what ages, men should be tested.

If you or a loved one is a man in your 50s or 60s, get screened. Make sure to repeat the screening every year, as part of your routine annual physical exam or as often as your doctor recommends.

Prostate cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in men. About one in five men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.

Each year, more than 30,000 American men die from prostate cancer. Early Screening has the potential to save many of those lives.

What is Prostate Cancer Screening?

A key component of preventive medicine, screening involves looking for a disease, like cancer, before a person has any symptoms. If abnormal tissue is found early enough, it is often easier to treat. By the time actual symptoms develop, it can be too late to halt the spread of the disease. At the very least, earlier detection of cancer means easier, less invasive treatment options with a higher chance of success.

The primary aims of prostate cancer screening are early detection, reducing the number of deaths from prostate cancer and catching cancers before they spread to other parts of the body.

Prostate cancer screening is typically conducted by performing two easy and important tests:

• Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test

A simple lab test that measures PSA levels in the blood.

• Digital rectal exam

A physical examination in which a doctor or nurse inserts a lubricated, gloved finger into the rectum to inspect the prostate for lumps or other suspicious signs.

It is important to note that elevated levels of PSA can also occur from normal growth of the prostate and inflammation or infection of the prostate—and not necessarily from cancer. Furthermore, even an elevated PSA level does not mean that a patient is at risk of dying from prostate cancer.

Most early-detected cases of prostate cancer have a good prognosis, some even without treatment. Some prostate cancer patients go years, decades, or even a lifetime without having to begin therapy.

However, some cases are aggressive—and only regular screenings can help detect these cancers before it’s too late.

It’s important for men to thoroughly discuss test results and their options with their doctors.
