Second ACT – Florida Weekly

These Floridians are finding new ways to live, enjoy, contribute and reinvent retirement

These Floridians are discovering new methods to reside, take pleasure in, contribute and reinvent retirement

LIKE OPEN-ROAD TRAVELERS ON A SUNNY day, statistics about age all the time include a shadow connected: a retirement shadow, on this case.

Greater than 55 million Individuals are at the least 65 years previous, the U.S. Census tells us. (Retirement.)

Florida, the nation’s third most populous state with about 21.75 million residents, is second behind Maine within the largest proportion of individuals 65 or older — 21.3% or about 4.64 million Floridians. (Retirement.)

Palm Seashore County contains 1.5 million residents, virtually 1 / 4 of them 65 or older (retirement). A 3rd of Collier County’s 386,000 residents are 65 or older (retirement) and virtually 30% of Lee County’s 788,000 residents share the identical distinction (retirement).

On a proportion foundation Charlotte County takes the cake: a whopping 41% of the county’s 195,000 everlasting residents are actually 65 or older — contrasting with Miami-Dade County, the place about 16% of its 2.9 million residents are 65 or older.

Though retirement as Individuals historically consider it shadows every of these 65-plus statistics, the numbers have little to do with the way in which some folks reside, when or in the event that they step out of lengthy careers.



For them, the phrase “retirement” turns into irrelevant. As a substitute, they transfer from their first acts to their second acts in life, and infrequently a lot later than they could have, as soon as upon a time.

“Individuals are working longer, the standard of their life is best, their well being is best, they usually wish to do one thing — in order that they usually take part or volunteer in making contributions to society in several methods,” says Peter Bergerson, a professor of public affairs at Florida Gulf Coast College.

For the reason that arrival of Franklin Roosevelt within the White Home 90 years in the past, he mentioned, individuals who use “the three-legged stool” inspired by authorities — Social Safety, an organization retirement plan and personal financial savings — usually have the assets to do what they need post-retirement. As well as, many have the guts to do it for others.

It’s that manner throughout. This week we describe some extraordinary second acts.

For every of those we might have pointed to lots of extra. They’re in all places, in each group: Individuals who search to share what they know and love with all or at the least a few of us for the remainder of their lives, in massive methods or small, making our lives higher within the course of.

Theirs, too.

“They provide me greater than I can ever give them,” explains Patricia Boutilier, 71, a Naples nurse who stepped out of her 45-year profession in the course of the pandemic, burned out, then started to work half time with dementia sufferers, one thing she’d finished 25 years earlier and located rewarding.

Pleasure strolled again by the door of her working life like a long-lost buddy, she says.

“It’s stunning. Individuals with dementia, from the time they’re initially recognized and excessive functioning to the low functioning, preserve their personalities, more often than not — they preserve their sense of self. If you happen to can goal what you’re doing to what their pursuits and actions are, you may deliver out the perfect elements of them nonetheless there.

“What I discovered is, I acquired to make use of the issues that mattered to me: books, poetry, trivia — and music. Music is a giant plus for anyone with reminiscence loss.” And for lots of people with out reminiscence loss, too.

Ms. Boutilier has greater than that in her “retirement” years too, because it seems: She’s additionally a fiction author, and a great one. A current story garnered an honorable point out this 12 months in Florida Weekly’s annual brief story contest, showing final week in our pages.

She’s been writing since she was younger, rising up in Pittsburgh because the oldest of 4 and hoping to make a lifetime of it. However exhausting household circumstances intruded and when she labored a job as an adolescent serving to nurses in a medical setting, she found her calling for caring. And stored writing, too.

If there’s a statistic displaying what proportion of a state or county inhabitants 65 or older continues to work and contribute — to show college college students, to work with dementia sufferers, to write down novels, to {photograph} the pure world so skillfully it teaches folks methods to see, to champion youngsters, to champion nonprofit assist companies, to create incandescent science museums or lead native governments and assist them plan the longer term — Florida Weekly couldn’t discover it.

However we suspect the Sunshine State ranks at or close to the highest for second actors, whether or not they work inside the system or outdoors it.

The ‘system’ people

In Lew Crampton’s case, when he arrived in Palm Seashore County in 2009 together with his spouse, Kathleen Crampton, each had been stepping away from illustrious careers in Illinois and Wisconsin. Most just lately he’d been a museum government. She was a health-care firm government. “I used to be going to work on my golf recreation, play in some newbie tournaments,” he remembers. “I don’t assume I used to be considering of greater than that. I actually didn’t have any world-changing work in thoughts.”

That foggy plan wouldn’t final.

He appreciated golf and will play effectively — had performed on the workforce at Princeton throughout his undergraduate years, when he additionally took a break to enlist in america Military, turning into a tank commander in items dealing with the Soviets alongside European borders in the course of the Chilly Conflict.

And he’d performed the sport after that, too, typically not often: by his grasp’s in East Asian Research at Harvard. And thru all of the Ph.D. course work in city and regional planning on the Massachusetts Institute of Know-how (he left MIT to take a job earlier than writing the dissertation for a Ph.D.).

He performed golf proper by his years working for companies as a spokesman or analyst — he was the China analyst for the RAND Corp., in a single occasion.

He performed by his years in authorities, when he was a senior administrator and head of communications on the U.S. Environmental Safety Company.

And he performed by his years as president of the Chicago Academy of Sciences and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, to not point out his time as president and CEO of the Burpee Museum of Pure Historical past in Rockford, Unwell.

It was there he joined a workforce within the Hell Creek Formation of southeastern Montana in 2001 (not a lot golf there). The workforce unearthed the third most full Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton within the historical past of paleontology — a juvenile, as stories describe it.

So when he lastly moved to Palm Seashore, “house to over 160 picturesque golf programs,” based on the Palm Seashore County Sports activities Fee, he did put in a spherical or two of golf.

However in all probability not way more. Then the curtain rose on Palm Seashore Metropolis Councilman Lew Crampton’s second act (he was first elected in 2018 on the age of 80, and stays in town council).

His second act is a full hand of do-good playing cards. Amongst others, he supplied his providers to the Palm Seashore Planning and Zoning Committee, which wasted no time bringing him aboard shortly after his arrival within the county. He served as head of the Residents Affiliation of Palm Seashore. And he agreed to lend his expertise, his capacity to speak effectively and his large affable character to what was then referred to as the South Florida Science Museum, beginning greater than a decade in the past.

Mrs. Crampton, in the meantime, was supplied a prime job with United Healthcare, and took it, persevering with previous her “retirement” for 5 – 6 years within the place.

Amongst different issues now, she helps preserve Mr. Crampton on monitor.

When a reporter referred to as for her husband, who was out and about in all probability not enjoying golf, she found he’d left his appointment calendar on his house desk, uncharacteristically. She briskly and effectively scheduled the interview for him for the subsequent day, penciling in a day time that was empty on the in any other case crowded schedule, all whereas conducting an organizational dialog with another person on one other line.

“The museum was in lots of hassle, it was going bankrupt, and the one that ran it left,” Mr. Crampton remembers of his first take a look at the place, 13 years in the past. “But it surely had good bones and a great employees.”

So he stepped in, considering to spend “5 – 6 months.”

Greater than a decade later he has resurrected it, encouraging and welcoming a culture-changing $20 million donation from Howard Cox and within the final 12 months tying off a $60 million fund-raising marketing campaign. He’s now not president, however continues to function chairman of the board of what has been renamed the Cox Science Heart and Aquarium.

Underneath his succesful hand in a second act, the Cox is now a major icon within the museum world with far-reaching cultural and scientific affect.

So is Mr. Crampton. At 84, his philosophic and pragmatic view of second acts is easy: “I’d say go along with your pursuits and preserve the vitality move excessive. That covers rather a lot. Primarily too, I’ve all the time wished to serve the general public.

“I feel the perfect factor about one’s life is that you just be part of another person’s story and also you make it higher. My happiness rises exponentially with the instances I’ve made the system work higher.”

He’s a methods man, in different phrases — a type of American optimism, maybe.

“I don’t maintain with all these dystopian views that we’re all going to hell in a handbasket. I don’t consider any of that. It’s inside our capacity to vary our system for the higher or to work with others to do this,” he insists.

And it’s inside Mr. Crampton’s capacity to do one different factor, as effectively: Proceed to play golf.

“My handicap continues to be single digit,” he notes — dangerous hips and a densely-packed schedule, or not.

Jim Nathan and Karen Nathan

There are different methods to work inside the system and assist folks within the second act, too.

Jim Nathan, additionally a methods man, usually stayed off of golf programs — until he was working on them, maybe.

For many years he ran, not jogged, usually on the order of 10 miles a day, every single day. That type of self-discipline and toughness, together with extraordinary manage-and-lead expertise and a ferocious work ethic, is a part of the explanation he spent a cumulative 33 years as CEO of Lee Well being Methods, the biggest public-health system within the state receiving no direct tax help, say those that know him.

However he lastly put down these reins in 2017 to saddle up an educational horse and produce alongside a pair different ambitions he works on with different motivated second actors: reaching what he calls “racial justice” for Individuals, particularly in Florida, and determining methods to set up well being care that advantages all people, after they want it.

None of this surprises his spouse, apparently. She’s a part of it.

“I met Jim after I was a freshman at Miami College (Ohio). He was busy, busy then and has by no means slowed down, so I knew he was not going to take effectively to something like an actual ‘retirement’ part in life,” explains Karen Nathan, who holds a doctorate in schooling and spent 52 years in that vocation, working to assist youngsters with troublesome challenges and as soon as authoring a ebook, “Dyslexia with items and abilities.”

Her husband’s second act stunned each of them, but it surely seems to gratify each of them, as effectively.

“I didn’t say, ‘I’m going to show.’ The educating factor wasn’t on my thoughts. I mentioned, ‘I feel I’ve a narrative to share, I’ll go speak to the folks at Florida Gulf Coast College,’” Mr. Nathan explains.

That was greater than three years in the past. Turning 76 this week, he’s now Government in Residence at FGCU, the place he teaches a category that straddles the college’s Marieb School of Well being & Human Providers and the Lutgert School of Enterprise. It’s referred to as, “Historical past of American Healthcare from Financial, Social and Political Views.”

And it comes with a query from Mr. Nathan: “How did we create such a extremely fragmented, usually underperforming well being system, for the huge funding we make as a nation?”

Right here’s the humorous factor about such a query and the way he may assist college students reply it — and this can be true for any second actors: “I’ve spent my complete life getting ready for this class,” he says. “I felt I might share with college students a number of the errors I made.”

However college directors advised him one thing else. “‘It’s a must to perceive the coed at present,’ they advised me. ‘Most work half time or full time, they’re first era (to go to varsity). They don’t like mission or teamwork. Their schedules are completely different.’”

So the directors wished him to show a digital class. However that defeated the notion of what he might provide.

“So I mentioned, ‘If you happen to can provide me college students for a day, and provides me a room massive sufficient to do small-group work, I’ll make the category (useful for them).’”

And at this level, Mr. Nathan begins to sound like Mr. Crampton, in Palm Seashore, a person who will work inside the system to make it higher:

“The important components (to fixing the well being care dilemma, or another): collaboration, teamwork, negotiation and debating — civilly debating. And coming to compromise.’”

Within the nameless evaluations he acquired from college students after educating his firstclass, one scholar mentioned it was among the finest courses she’d ever had. “‘I didn’t anticipate a lot (at first) as a result of he was so previous,’ that scholar wrote,” remembers Mr. Nathan.

Karen Nathan approves.

“Retirement has given Jim a chance to be a real ‘professor’ in the perfect sense of the phrase — to information and cross on his information to those that observe.” She would know.

Her personal retirement actions make up a beneficiant and energetic second act: Amongst others, she’s on the board of the Kids’s Community of Southwest Florida, the nonprofit group administering the kid welfare program in 5 counties, and he or she co-founded an lively group referred to as Progressive Girls of Southwest Florida, with the late Dena Geraghty and instructor Alexandra Bremner (Ms. Bremner appears to have began her second act in the course of her first).

As for the subsequent 10 years in or out of academia, Mr. Nathan says, he’s taking the recommendation of a cousin: “As a substitute of forcing what I’m going to do, I’ll make the smoothest transition I can — I’ll let life come to me.”

It sounds good. However we’ll see.

Arms-on do-gooder

Nanette Leonard blames her muscular philanthropy partly on the caring coronary heart of her group — Punta Gorda and Charlotte County, the place lots of people aren’t younger — and partly on her mother and father.

“I feel lots of giving occurs on this metropolis — it’s one of the crucial philanthropic cities I’ve seen,” she says. “There are such a lot of folks right here that give again to different folks and to organizations.”

She matches into that cultural tapestry like a vibrant thread sewn right through it.

And her mother and father? They taught her to deal with each particular person the identical manner, wealthy or poor, well-known just like the actors her mom as soon as labored with — E.G. Marshall or Peter Falk or Michael J. Fox, to call just some — or nameless, just like the plumber.

They usually taught her to “give again,” or “pay it ahead.”

All of that helps clarify what occurred when the curtain lifted on her second act.

For her mother and father — her late dad then in his 90s and her barely youthful mother, now 99, and Nanette’s housemate — she bought her house and shuttered a star-spangled enterprise as a New York-based publicist, arriving right here a decade in the past this month, at 63.

Her working life was spectacular. She’d helped kick off Whoopi Goldberg’s profession, she’d labored with the late Gregory Peck and two-time Tony Award-winning actress Judith Ivey amongst many different stars, and he or she had represented high-profile advertising and film corporations corresponding to United Artists.

Having grown up in a present enterprise and advertising world, and dealing in it, one factor was clear: It didn’t appear to be Punta Gorda.

In consequence, “After I realized I used to be going to start out over, I didn’t have a clue,” she acknowledges. “I believed, ‘Possibly I’ll be a canine groomer. I really like canine.’ However I spotted there’s just one factor I actually know methods to do: Be a publicist.”

So she frolicked a shingle, Nanette Leonard Public Relations, and work began coming in.

“I by no means actually retired,” she concludes now. However she shifted her focus a bit. “I had a way of objective — to do extra philanthropic issues.”

And never just some.

To call some: She based a do-good membership, Contemporary Jersey Tomatoes, in 2015. All ladies.

“It began with 9 ladies and myself, and now we’ve got greater than 320 members. The principles are, in some unspecified time in the future in your life you need to have lived within the Backyard State. And that’s it.” Assembly month-to-month (with pandemic breaks), they’ve finished a world of fine for a lot of, together with some who could appear a world away.

“Contemporary Jersey Tomatoes did a humanitarian assist drive for Ukraine, and I pushed it six methods from Sunday.

“I set it up at TT’s Tiki Bar at 4- Factors by Sheraton, and we had radio, TV and newspaper interviews, press releases and social media promotions. Individuals simply got here out of the woodwork, as this group does for toy drives. We stuffed a truck the dimensions of the Amazon vans and three different automobiles with donations. There’s a giant Ukrainian group in North Port, they usually had been fabulous. All that stuff went over to Ukraine.”

Ms. Leonard is founder and government director of the Punta Gorda Brief Movie Competition, a massively widespread occasion now set to enter its ninth 12 months with award-winning movies screened within the Charlotte Harbor Occasion & Convention Heart.

She additionally sits on the board of administrators for the Animal Welfare League of Charlotte

County and others, together with the Coalition for the Homeless.

But it surely isn’t all about boards and directorships, both. She’s hands-on.

“For 4 years I did a program referred to as Take Inventory in Kids. It’s a scholarship program. You get assigned a scholar, and also you undergo their final 12 months in center college and highschool.

“You meet as soon as per week, and there are specific issues they must do. As soon as they graduate, they get scholarships. So I used to be a mentor, and it’s a beautiful, great program. You get to speak to someone on a weekly foundation.”

And also you get to assist them change their lives for the higher, for gratis however effort, for them.

She additionally began Youngsters and Dad and mom Night time Out, hosted on the Burg’r Bar.

“I invited these of my buddies who had mother and father. And as soon as my dad handed away, I did a factor referred to as Remembering Our Dads with Laughter and Love. We did that at Burg’r Bar, too. Individuals introduced footage, laughed, advised tales.”

However she’s not snug taking a lot credit score as a result of she describes her group as “the smallest metropolis with the most important coronary heart.”

In her view, “it has much less to do with what I attempt to put in movement and extra to do with folks on this group. I might stand on my head on the 41 bridge all day, and these items would occur anyway.”

Now she’s caring for her mother at house, “even at present the strongest lady in my life,” she says. And he or she’s remembering her dad, retired Marine Corps Main Herbert J. Seakwood.

“He gave me his motto: In a difficult place, ‘Suck in your intestine and head into the wind.’

“In order that’s what I do.”

She provides charity and ethical objective to these marching orders, too.

“After I represented Whoopi, she did comedian aid with Robin (Williams, no relation to the reporter) and Billy Crystal. And I spotted after she did that profit to lift cash for the homeless, that she might do nice issues, similar to Robin and Billy. They usually might make large dents and assist folks, as a result of they’ve celeb standing. And I don’t.”

There’s a pause. “They might make large dents — however I might do little dents,” she provides.

Or not so little, the truth is. There’s nothing retiring and no retreat in that perspective.

The artistic second actors

Artists are loners of types, just by the character of the work: Wonderful pictures or nice writing, for instance, aren’t workforce sports activities.

So now Jeff Bruce works alone within the relative silence of his examine after a profession spent principally within the cacophony of once-upon-a-time newsrooms. There, the crescendo of clattering, clicking, conversing, exchanging and shouting, seasoned with epithets, raucous laughter or typically lifeless silence damaged by escaped tears or a muffled sob reached marching-band ranges of noise on any given afternoon earlier than press time. Reporters can see lots of dangerous information up shut and private, and he has.

In his examine, engaged on the sixth in a sequence of widespread and award-winning novels, he’s now accomplished his third in a sequence of retirements.

Mr. Bruce retired twice from the newspaper enterprise and as soon as from a three-year stint as a journalism instructor at a college, main him to this conclusion about the usual American occasion: “I’m a depressing failure in relation to retirement.”

His careers, begun at age 19 as a reporter, embody educating journalism at Wright State College in Dayton, Ohio, after his first stint in newspapers, then returning to information and including to his spectacular record of employers in that enterprise, earlier than stepping out without end.

Until he returns sometime.

In the end, he had labored “as an editor, managing editor, or reporter at, amongst different locations, the Naples Day by day Information, the Dayton Day by day Information, the Austin American-Statesman, the Longview Information-Journal, the Mesa Tribune, the Miami Herald, the Palm Seashore Publish, the St. Petersburg Occasions (now the Tampa Bay Occasions) and the Tampa Occasions (now deceased),” says his buddy, Eric Strachan.

Mr. Strachan was senior managing editor on the Naples Day by day Information when Mr. Bruce was a managing editor, and now serves as editor of the Naples Florida Weekly.

In retirement, 1,000 phrases a day is Mr. Bruce’s self-imposed deadline requirement whereas writing the primary draft of one in every of his 90,000-word novels within the “Unusual Recordsdata” books, a sequence that has confirmed each widespread and award successful, partly as a result of they provide his readers a spot of refuge and studying.

He is aware of rather a lot, based on his buddies.

Ernest Hemingway claimed he did 500 phrases a day and by no means missed a dawn in his writing years — which, given his degree of consuming, could or could not have been true.

Jeff Bruce’s degree of health and work self-discipline, however, leads nobody to doubt his capacity to place out. Each morning he and his spouse, Sandy, go for an extended stroll; in addition they belong to a fitness center the place they work out often.

“If I don’t do this, I can’t sit down for 4 or 5 hours and write,” he acknowledges.

He feels lucky to have the ability to work that tough in retirement.

“I’ve advised folks this for years: For many, retirement is a demise sentence. If you happen to don’t have one thing you’re engaged in, what’s the purpose?

“However to say one thing like meaning you’re privileged. If you happen to had been pounding nails right into a roof all of your life, you’d be worn out.”

For the work of books to be stable, or journalism, you need to have nice editors.

Mr. Bruce has three, he says: his spouse, Sandy, “who is aware of the place and when to kill my darlings” within the fiction, and their youngsters, Logan and Kacey. Logan is copy editor on all his books, and artist and designer Kacey helps the completed merchandise shine for readers.

Within the 70 to 90 age vary of American dwelling, Mr. Bruce concludes, “you will have fewer days forward of you than behind, so what are you going to depart that’s useful for others?”

He provides this sage three-retirements-going-on-four recommendation: “Re-engage and be good residents. Crucial job is the job of being a citizen.

“If you happen to’ve lived so long as we’ve got, particularly if we’re sincere with ourselves, we’ve made tons of errors. The advantage of them is you may be taught from them and share what you realize with others. Retirement doesn’t imply you need to disengage from the group.”

As a substitute, he says, “It’s an opportunity.”

Dr. Peter Sidell

Dr. Peter Sidell didn’t must retire and won’t have. His lengthy and eminently profitable profession as a cardiothoracic surgeon had taken him from the UCLA medical college to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for a decade, and at last to a fascinating job in Fort Myers.

However he acquired bored with “staying up all night time,” for one factor. And for an additional, Dr. Sidell most well-liked to not be advised he couldn’t come out of an emergency room and speak with a affected person’s household, with out written permission — until he wished to danger a $50,000 positive and a jail sentence.

“It was the primary implementation of HIPPA, one in every of Teddy Kennedy’s items to well being care. Later they realized they wanted to change the regulation however by then I used to be gone,” he mentioned.

So as an alternative of “retiring,” he prefers a distinct phrase to explain what occurred: He stop.

And now, with out searching for revenue or fame and with out promoting what he does, he’s turning into acknowledged as one of many most interesting nature and travel-adventure photographers within the area, or in all probability within the state or nation.

He shows his work at reveals sometimes or shares it with buddies or posts it on a web site: petersidell.smugmug.com/

“I type of care and type of don’t care (about how the pictures are acquired),” he admits. “They’re footage I take as a result of I discover them fascinating, and I spend a while modifying them. I hope some others take pleasure in them, and infrequently I’ve tried promoting a number of.

“However when you make one thing right into a enterprise, then it turns into work. None of that is work.”

Together with his spouse, Mary Kay, he’s traveled the world to rejoice it in ways in which educate others methods to see issues they could have glanced in any respect their lives, with out seeing. Lions and tigers and bears. Birds and butterflies and typically even folks.

After they sit and take a look at his pictures, viewers can journey, too, it appears.

It will not be work or a enterprise, but it surely’s not retirement, both. It’s artwork and exploration.

“For the primary couple of years after I left the career, I carried guilt — I felt I nonetheless had one thing to supply however not the vitality to maintain at it,” Dr. Sidell admits. “I considered writing, the flip facet of studying (a lifelong fixed, for him) however I’ve produced nothing publishable.

“’I additionally loved taking footage. So I began performing some pictures workshops, and noticed I might take pictures to a distinct degree — it grew to become a type of productiveness and self-expression I take pleasure in.”

From polar bears within the tundra to monarch butterflies in Mexico to kingfishers on a southern river to a bromeliad epiphyte seeming to burst from a tree trunk deep in a cypress slough, a life type with a spectacular vitality unrecognizable to any who merely look in passing at such magnificence, his pictures are compelling.

And he compares their composition to his work as a surgeon.

“They are saying type follows operate. In any type of reconstructive surgical procedure, and coronary heart valve surgical procedure is a type of reconstruction, you will have an thought of what you wish to obtain, what it appears like — the operate. And the higher the shape matches the person circumstances of the affected person, the extra possible it can operate effectively.”

So in pictures, “I’m not fascinated with a operate however I’m intrigued by the type of one thing.”

And he’s fascinated with masters of the artwork who assist him perceive methods to seize type, roughly — methods to take a telling photograph: for him, Ansel Adams, Ed Porter and Gary Hart, to call just some.

All of that is a part of important reinvention — for Dr. Sidell, now 77, beginning every single day with in-place spin biking, adopted by pushups and sit-ups.

“As you undergo life you need to reinvent your self every now and then to maintain your self wholesome. I used to do bicycling on the street, however twice I fell — I broke my collarbone the primary time, and the second time I used to be knocked out. So now I do 70 minutes every morning on the stationary bike, with stretches and sit-ups and push-ups. And I play slightly tennis.”

Yet another factor: As a health care provider, he has slightly recommendation for these taking a look at “retirement.”

“Crucial factor you are able to do is use one thing you’re serious about doing. Possibly you strive a number of various things. However the worst factor you are able to do is sit house and watch TV and eat and be sedentary. That’s a recipe for dying quickly.

“So long as you’re lively and — by and huge the extra lively you’re, and serious about life you’re — the much less possible you’re to be sandbagged by early mortality.” ¦
