Broadmead, a continuing-care retirement community in Hunt Valley, has "been so much than just a place to work," said retiring CEO Rich Compton. He has served as the company's leader for almost three decades. During that time, his parents came to live at Broadmead and his children worked their first jobs there. He's seen the aged-care business transformed into a highly regulated business. He's also witnessed how the different expectations each generation has for a retirement facility shape how they are marketed and run. As he prepares to leave Broadmead at the end of June, The Baltimore Sun asked him to share his thoughts on the state of the continuing care industry and its future.

With the new PGA Tour season approaching, Compton finally saw a doctor last month to have it cut out — but now it hasn't healed properly. "It actually hurts more than before," he groused. For Compton, this is little more than annoyance. Considering all the recipient of two heart transplants has endured to finally stand on the brink of his rookie debut at the Sony Open, a little hole in his foot isn't going to get in the way.

This week's AT&T National will be Erik Compton's 29th start on the PGA Tour, on which his unique story — twice a heart-transplant recipient — has made him a frequent recipient of sponsor's exemptions over the last decade. There's a different outlook, though, as he arrives at Aronimink Golf Club. A PGA Tour card no longer is the goal; it's the next chapter. "It's just a lifelong dream," said Compton, 31, whose win at last week's Mexico Open all but assures him a card as one of the Nationwide Tour's top 25 in earnings.

Oddly dispiriting as it can be, I often hum "You Can't Always Get What You Want" because truer words cannot be spoken about life as a consumer. First-time homeowner Addie Compton might be singing along with the Rolling Stones now, too, after wrestling with the plumbing problem she had back on Jan. 18. An upstairs toilet in her Violetville home got clogged and leaked wastewater through the living room ceiling. As most of us would do in that situation, the 35-year-old archivist started calling plumbing companies.
