"Being new to San Juan Capistrano, I wasn’t sure what would be the best avenue for advetising and marketing. Thankfully I picked up a copy of South County Magazine at a restaurant and read the testimonials. They were not like any I’d seen – raving about the staff and Jody’s way of being more like a partner in your business than just an advertising publication. Jody met with me soon after I called. She listened to my goals and concerns, and then shared her thoughts and expertise with regard to what might be most effective for my unique business. Several months later, she is still in easy contact, never seeming like she’s trying to make a sale, but always wanting to be sure I don’t miss an opportunity to grow. I cannot say enough about what an asset Jody and her magazines are to our communities and businesses." - Catherine Darras, Catherine Darras Hypnotherapy, San Juan Capistrano

Awoken Life

T

by Heather Evans

here’s something to be said about seeking a better life for yourself. Some find solace from stress in simple things, like taking a walk or bubble bath. Others seek wisdom through therapy and medicine. But can you honestly say these avenues ever really help? Or do you just hang on until the next appointment with your therapist, until the next time you can take a refreshing walk? I had never considered the art of getting back to life and dare I say living it until I met Mary McPherson from the San Juan Capistranobased Awoken Life. Awoken Life specializes in Brainwave Optimization (something you might have heard about on Oprah, read from the pages of People magazine or in science journals). “Brainwave Optimization is about getting you, back to you,” says Mary, a Certified Optimization Specialist. “Some people spend tens of thousands of dollars and endless years on therapy and medications, that might work for them. Others want to get back to living happily and balanced right away with a natural, holistic approach. Brainwave Optimization is a week-long intensive program which leaves you centered, balanced, and recharged. Some of the things we help people with are anxiety, ADD/ADHD, addictions, anger, depression, brain injuries, panic attacks, PTSD, and Insomnia or sleep disorders.” Brainwave Optimization is a unique highly scientific, yet holistic approach. Over 80,000 people have successfully participated, and the number grows every day. What are they experiencing? ”We start with an intensive scientific evaluation of your brainwaves, using a very advanced computer program in the initial assessment,” Mary comments. “We determine where the imbalances and frequency levels are in the initial assessment. The program is so advanced we are able to tell if you’ve experienced trauma, sadness, or have anxiety... whatever is causing your brainwaves to function at an improper

level. We can then create a treatment plan customized to your specific needs. Over the next 5 days, you can relax in our zero gravity chair while listening to audio feedback being created by your own brainwave frequencies and mirrored back through this advanced technology. This clinically proven process can be viewed on our website, www.awokenlife.com, under “What is Brainwave Optimization?” Awoken Life is dedicated to helping people achieve their potential, through Brainwave Optimization, guided visualization and even hypnotherapy. “Wellness is first a state of mind. From there the body will follow.” - Lee Gerdes, Brainwave Optimization Founder. Awoken Life has changed the lives of so many people who can’t wait to share their stories. Read about local Dana Point resident Vince’s experience: “I cannot put into words how much Awoken Life has changed my life. Struggles of alcohol dependency, depression, spelling and even my fear of heights suddenly became manageable. I went in to this a total skeptic and was made in to a believer. Thank you for giving me a life I never thought possible.” Another happy client, Dawn from Temecula, echoes Vince's sentiment and adds “Awoken Life Brainwave Optimization has changed my life. I have been able to stop taking my depression medicine that I took for over 10 years. I am no longer tired, sad, or depressed. I have stopped my anxiety compulsive picking. I no longer drink 3 cans of Coke a day. I am learning more about myself than ever before. I am a new and improved person, able to cope with life, and stressors that happen daily. Thank you for renewing my life!” Awoken Life is an all-natural, responsive, holistic approach to total wellness. Call to find out if this technology is right for you or those you love. .

Preferred Kitchen and Bath Different by Design

A

Beautiful, affordable kitchens and baths from people you can trust by Ann Laurence • photography by Melisa Chandler, Chandler Photography

s women, we care. It's in our nature. We tirelessly look after the countless details of raising our children, maintaining our homes and furthering our careers. The women at Preferred Kitchen and Bath take this same passionate and detailed approach to every remodel they do. They realize that the kitchen is the heart of the home and that every detail of the space should evoke a feeling of familiarity and warmth. As the owner/designer of the South County-based Preferred Kitchen and Bath, Julie Allen understands this and with over 20 years of experience designing in the clothing industry she realizes color, form and function are paramount. Designer Lea Biermann comes from a similar background with a Bachelor's degree in Interior Design. Attention to detail is one her greatest strengths as she guides her clients through each step of the decision makJULY 2015

ing process. Associate Designer Suzy Sparks also holds a Bachelor's degree in Interior Design and enjoys looking at each space with a fresh approach. This talented design trio possess the "designer's eye” coupled with the construction knowledge needed to make your remodeling process a breeze. “As designers, we love seeing the transformative process of remodeling,” says Julie. "Taking an old, outdated ‘waste of space’ kitchen and turning it into a client's dream kitchen is what gives us joy.” I suspect I am not unlike most other homeowners in that I prefer to do business with individuals who are not only highly qualified with a proven track record in their respective area of expertise, but also operate with integrity, personal attention and a straightforward "say what you mean, and mean what you say" approach.

SOUTH COUNTY MAGAZINE


“We don't think like contractors or salespeople even though we are both,” says Julie. “It starts with the attitude of the owners, which becomes the company culture and inevitably guides the day to day actions. We have attracted to our firm a wonderful family of designers and craftsmen which in turn help our clients imagine what they want and then make it a reality.”

When it comes to home remodeling, we’ve all heard horror stories of projects that went way over budget and took far longer than expected. For these reasons and more, it’s so refreshing to come across a company like Preferred Kitchen and Bath that is backed by the rave reviews and recommendations of scores of South County homeowners. As Lead Designer, Julie and her team, including Designer Lea Biermann and Associate Designer Suzy Sparks “think like homeowners” asking themselves "Knowing what we know, what would we do if we were spending our own hard earned money on this project?" and "If we were the client, what would we want to know and how would we want to be treated?" “We don't think like contractors or salespeople even though we are both,” says Julie. “It starts with the attitude of the owners, which becomes the company culture and inevitably guides the day to day actions. We have attracted to our firm a wonderful family of designers and craftsmen which in turn help our clients imagine what they want and then make it a reality.” When she started the company in 2003, Julie believed the Orange County market was ready for a remodeling company that thought and behaved differently. JULY 2015

“Many companies had operated here for a long time and had become complacent regarding the way they served homeowners,” she says. “I believed it could be done much better, which would improve people's remodeling experience.” This concept has clearly served her well as the design and remodeling firm has grown from a small operation into a thriving business. It will always be Julie, Lea or Suzy who will personally come to your home and oversee your remodeling project – from start to finish. “We have invested extensively in computers, software and displays so that you can get as clear a picture as possible what your kitchen or bath will look like before you spend a penny,” says Julie. A team of caring, professional women run the daily operations of the company, including design, sales, ordering, scheduling and project management. They understand that when you decide to remodel your kitchen or bathroom, you are paying for more than just cabinets, counters, and fixtures. You are paying for designing, planning, scheduling, communicating and installing - a total remodeling experience culminating in a rewarding outcome or finished product.

SOUTH COUNTY MAGAZINE


John’s assessment and add “we are truly happy with our new kitchen and our entire experience with Preferred Kitchen & Bath. Every phase of the job-from design, to products, to installation-exceeded our expectations. Preferred Kitchen & Bath made our kitchen remodel the easiest, fastest, and most pleasant home project of this magnitude we have ever done.

“We realize there are a multitude of decisions to make when attempting any remodeling project,” says Julie. “That is why we pride ourselves on being there each step of the way. From the initial phases of space planning and construction to the color and finish selection your designer will help you make the right decisions. From beginning to end your designer is only a phone call away.” But the true testament of a company’s success is its reputation in the industry and feedback from customers like Beverly Stumberg and John Dubbels of Mission Viejo who "love, love, love our new kitchen! We cannot believe that we have something so beautiful in our home.” In a letter to Julie upon the completion of their kitchen remodel, they wrote “We trusted your design expertise and you did not disappoint. Thank you for "holding our hands" throughout the entire process. It definitely helped mitigate the stress - as did the timely finish. Your crews were outstanding in every way. We cannot recommend you highly enough." Ray and Jody Payne of Dana Point agree with Beverly and

“After living with our new kitchen a few months, there is not one thing we would have done differently. The space works beautifully because of the time and attention Lea gave to the layout and design. The computer model meant we did not have to guess how it might look; we could actually see it. Lea worked with us closely to make sure our new cabinets, countertops and appliances were a perfect fit for our lifestyle. Lea checked everything so many times we did not have a single mistake in design. The cabinets we chose were the best quality and competitively priced. We never felt like we had to compromise. We got all the custom touches that make our kitchen unique: drawers-within-drawers, slide outs, spice racks, lighted displays and soft-close doors. The boxes were well built, the door finishes are gorgeous, and the guarantee is reassuring. The workmen Preferred Kitchen & Bath employs are competent, trustworthy, and friendly. They were on time, on schedule and as minimally disruptive as possible. They left our home clean every evening. It is never easy having workers in your home, but they made it as painless as possible. Most important, they did the job right-and we are very picky. Preferred Kitchen & Bath kept every one of their promises. They delivered a quality custom kitchen at an excellent price. They gave us a detailed dated schedule and budget and stuck to it. We did not think it was possible to complete a major kitchen remodel in just one month, but Preferred Kitchen & Bath made it happen.”

“We pride ourselves on a 12-year track record of making even the most finicky clients very, very happy,” says Julie. “We have eaten in many of the kitchens we have built. How many contractors and designers can make that claim?”

The Kwok is Ticking: An Unwanted Surprise for California Title Insurance Holders By Donald A. Hunsberger

Homeowners in California with estate plans have historically transferred title to their property to the trustees of their planning entities. This has been the practice in the Golden State since the first days of trust writing and through to the days of limited liability companies, simply because it is the most effective method for making sure that their homes do not have to pass through probate following California homeowners’ deaths. Simply stated, a home held in trust is not included in the deceased’s probate estate. A recent dispute between a property owner and his title insurance company knocked the California real estate world, including estate planners, off their normally placid podiums. The property owners transferred the title to their real estate from a limited liability company to a trust, then later entered into a dispute with another land owner over a boundary issue. Under most situations, this would send out the troops from the title insurance company to enter into battle on behalf of the owners to defend the title which is insured by the policy purchased at the time owners first bought the property. For the Lawyers and Accountants: Kwok v Transnation Title Ins. Co. (2009) 170 CA4th 1562. The problem with the case of the Kwok family stemmed from the fact that the insurance company said that the limited liability company, not the trustees, was the owner of the property, and was therefore the insured party under the title policy. The California Court of Appeals agreed with this argument and emphasized that the title policy held no language which allowed the property owners to change who would be able to benefit from the insurance policy simply by changing who was what the law calls a “beneficial owner” of the property. JULY 2015

SOUTH COUNTY MAGAZINE

Title insurance is a crucial element of property ownership, so everyone who uses a trust to hold property free from probate in his or her estate plan needs to revisit the title policy which he or she purchased when buying a home. Owners should take their title policies to their attorneys to have the documents reviewed to make certain that there is language in the policy which allows the term “insured” to cover individuals or entities such as trustees of trusts, partners in limited partnerships, members of limited liability companies, or any other devices used in estate planning documents. It is important to be proactive with planners on this issue; after discussing the matter with an attorney and assuring counsel of the reality of this decision through the foregoing citation, the attorney will know that if a policy for title insurance does not cover, within the definition of its insured, a trustee or other estate planning entity, then it is necessary to approach the insurance company before there is a title claim and seek what is called an endorsement for that

Medigap101: by Stephanie Frisch A Medigap policy (also called “Medicare Supplement Insurance”) is health insurance sold by private insurance companies to fill the gaps in Original Medicare. There is no Federal government involvement as with Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug (Part D) plans. Medigap policies will cover your share of coinsurance, copayments and deductibles that Original Medicare doesn’t pay for. Some Medigap policies will also cover foreign travel emergency expenses; another thing that Original Medicare doesn’t cover. Medigap policies don’t cover your share of costs for any other types of health coverage, including Medicare Advantage (you choose either one, but not both), Medicare RX plans (Part D), employer/union group health plans and VA benefits. In most states; the exception being Massachusetts, Minnesota and Wisconsin, Medigap insurance companies must follow federal and state laws and can only sell you a “standardized” Medigap policy identified by letters A through N. This means that each insurance company offering Plan F, for example, must offer the same basic benefits. Non-medical additional benefits offered by the insurance company and premium cost are usually the only difference between Medigap policies with the same letter sold by different insurance companies. There are two scenarios when an insurance company must sell you your first Medigap policy, even if you are very sick or have health problems: When you’re first eligible for Medicare during your Open Enrollment period which lasts for six months. When you have guaranteed issue rights (many numerous reasons, you can contact me for clarification) Outside of these two situations, you can purchase a Medigap policy ANYTIME during the year, but you will be subject to the insurance company’s underwriting unless you currently have a Medigap policy and are changing companies utilizing the birthday rule. (the month prior, of, and after your birthday you are guaranteed issued).

Yoga… Where Do I Begin? by Nicole Howard and Cara Fraser

Vinyasa yoga is known for its smooth sequencing and linking breath to movement. Depending on the instructor, classes can be athletically driven to a more spiritual experience with chanting and meditation. So if one class doesn’t suit you, try a different instructor. A Vinyasa class can range from calm to rigorous. As a beginning yogi look for classes that are titled “Gentle Flow”. Bikram yoga is best known for hot rooms. This style of vinyasa yoga was developed by Bikram Choudhury and is comprised of 26 postures performed in strict sequential order. The heated rooms can be intense so working your way up in temperature is advised. Ashtanga or Power Yoga was popularized in the 70’s by Pattabhi Jois and is a physical style of yoga. It follows a specific sequence of postures in the exact order each time. If you enjoy a more structured class that focuses on mastery of poses and progressing to advanced levels, this could be a great style of yoga for you.

Y

oga has been one of the fastest growing fitness trends in America. Here at Align Pilates and Yoga it is no mystery why yoga is booming. We strongly agree it is an excellent choice of movement. If you have not tried a yoga class we highly recommend it. To get the most benefit from yoga, you should choose a style that matches your fitness level and health goals. Knowing the common types of yoga will help you pick the class that serves you best. Hatha yoga is the foundation of most yoga styles. Hatha is a very generic term for any type of yoga that teaches the physical postures. Here, you’ll learn the basic postures, breath work, relaxation techniques, and meditation, making it a great choice for beginners.

Iyengar is an alignment-based style of yoga. Instructors use blocks, straps, and blankets, to achieve correct alignment in each pose. A great style of yoga for individuals who appreciate detail and need a class that can accommodate any limitations. Restorative yoga is soothing and relaxing style that rejuvenates you more than a nap. A slow paced class with gentle postures is ideal for those who want to release stress.

The Life Review of a War Hero and Patriarch

W

A Story of Courage, Resilience and Family by Denise Carson hen her father, Richard Bentley, entered Hospice Care of the West, Karen Garber, felt the palpable 11th hour strike on his life until documentary filmmaker, Jay Gianukos, arrived. From behind the video camera, Jay asked questions to guide Mr. Bentley and his family on a tour of his life that will now live on for generations. From his Park Terrace home in Rancho Santa Margarita, Mr. Bentley relived his days serving as a pilot in World War II, prison camp and the aftermath of the war that reminds me of the “Unbroken” movie out in theaters now.

Mr. Bentley is a striking resemblance to Clint Eastwood. As Mr. Bentley tells his stories, we feel as though we have stepped into scenes from Eastwood's Hollywood films. Mr. Bentley tells us that it’s relationships with people that make the journey interesting and worthwhile. Recording his life story gave the family something to hold onto at a time when they felt him slipping away. The life review video program at Hospice Care of the West is the only one of its kind in the country. Life review guides like Jay record wisdom and personal history in an interview with the hospice patient that is then edited with music and family archival photos. The life review video is then given as a gift to the family. (continued on page 40) JULY 2015

(continued from page 38) In the life review, Mr. Bentley also talks about how important his mother and grandfather were in building the man he is today. His grandfather travelled from England to America at just 17 years old in search of a new life. Likewise, Bentley turned out to be a wanderlust kid growing up in Minnesota with big dreams of one day living in a tropical paradise. At age 16, he hitchhiked to San Francisco and then made his way down to San Diego where he stowed away on a boat to Hawaii. He landed a job with Filipino migrant workers in the sugar cane fields. The sugar cane field foreman had a reputation for treating the migrant workers like slaves. One day, he tried to push Mr. Bentley, who was a very mild mannered man. Finally, Bentley had enough. He turned around, punched the foreman in the head and knocked him out. Everyone thought he was dead. Mr. Bentley rose to become a local hero and earned the name “One-Punch Bentley.” He left the cane fields to work for a company that delivered oil to Pearl Harbor. Yet, on the morning of December 7, 1941, he didn’t deliver oil to the harbor but he did see the Japanese planes flying so low that he could see the pilot. The day after the attack on Pearl Harbor, he returned to the mainland to become a pilot to fly in World War II. He flew 31 bombing missions from North Africa to Europe. On the last mission his plane crashed off the coast of Sicily. He swam in the ocean for two hours, until an Italian fisherman picked him up. Upon arriving on shore, he was taken to the Italian war quarters and became a prisoner of war to the Germans. General George Patton liberated the prison camp. So, Mr. Bentley recalled seeing the commander in action on the day of his freedom. After the war, Mr. Bentley became an aerospace engineer. As the Project Manager of the Early Bird-Syncom Satellite, he made the first transatlantic phone call a reality. Some 25 years later when Mr. Bentley returned to Hawaii with his family, his daughter Karen recalled all the Filipinos running up to her father, who was a local legend. They were all cheering “One-Punch Bentley.” He will remain a local legend in Hawaii. And for us, Mr. Bentley will be forever be remembered for serving our country and giving us gems of wisdom to live by. In the last week of his life, Karen and the Bentley family watched the life review video that Jay created and gave as a gift from Hospice Care of the West. “Watching the video is like my father is right there in the room talking to us,” Karen said. “It is a real conversation and Jay just brings my father to life for us. He captured the calm and loving presence of our family’s patriarch. The video is just priceless and so comforting for our family. I feel love and pride for my dad when I watch it. And, I tell all my friends they must record their parents’ stories, before it’s too late.”

NPS works with businesses in all industries and of all sizes. “From large, national health care companies to small local clothing boutiques, dentists, lawyers, realtors, local colleges and universities, we give the same time, attention, competitive pricing and level of customer service to each and every customer, “ says Martin. “ Our business has grown over the years by staying focused on servicing and making sure our customers are happy.” Color, paper texture, font, wording etc. all come into play when creating a company’s signature look. Martin and his team strive to meet their customer’s needs and exceed their expectations and vision of their finished product.

A

s we all know, you never get a second chance to make a first impression: to leave a lasting impact on those whom you come in contact with. The simple feel of a quality business card, a visually appealing postcard design or

a clean, clearly worded print advertisement are all ways to make yourself and your business stand out among your competitors. This is where Martin Stolzenberg and his team at Network Print Solutions come in. After earning a degree in fashion design and immigrating to New York from Johannesburg South Africa, Martin started a small clothing company. One of the problems he encountered was finding quality, cost effective marketing collateral for his fledgling business. According to Martin, “Quality printing in small quantities at reasonable prices was virtually impossible to find.” Five years later he sold his business in New York and headed for sunny Los Angeles. Understanding the need of small business owners to have access to quality printing at competitive pricing, Martin started his next business venture: Network Print Solutions. Today, over two decades later, Network Print Solutions has grown into a full service creative studio offering custom

In today’s ever changing corporate environment, a great first impression is really important to the growth and future health of a business. It is never too late update your logo or branding or rethink your marketing strategy in order to draw an inquisitive eye with an additional pop of color, choice of paper stock or change of layout. “Network Print Solutions has been responsible for the printing of all our collateral for several years – from business cards and letterhead to our media kits and presentation posters – and we couldn’t be happier with the quality of the product Martin and his team consistently produce and the level of personal attention and customer service we receive,” says Jody Robinson, editor Community Publications, LLC.

by William Shakespeare • submitted by Beverly Blake & Tom Scott illiam Shakespeare quotes such as "To be, or not to be" and "O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?" form some of literature's most celebrated lines. What you may not know is that you speak “Shakespeare” every day. Have you ever said: "I’ll not budge an inch", "A dish fit for the gods", or "It’s all Greek to me"? These every day catch phrases are more use in today than they were when written by Shakespeare.

You may think this be madness, yet there is method in it. After all, can one desire too much of a good thing? True, we have seen better days. Some say the world is grown so bad, that wrens make prey where eagles dare not perch. Just remember, wisely and slow; they stumble that run fast. In truth, the course of true love never did run smooth. Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind. After all, love is blind, and lovers cannot see. But still, some wear their heart upon their sleeves until the game is up. Others bear a charmed life where fair is foul and foul is fair. As good luck would have it, all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. So if we play our cards right, then the world’s mine oyster! Just remember to

Oh yes, beware the ides of March! Ah, it is neither here nor there. I have not slept one wink. I now know you and I are past our dancing days. This above all, to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man. Well, enough is enough. That’s the short and the long of it. Parting is such sweet sorrow. Let’s wrap this up now since brevity is the soul of wit. After all, men of few words are the best men.
