I think your compilation problem is primarily just misplaced/missing braces. If you align your indentation more carefully, you will see how these are (not) lining up.

Also, you can't return a value from a method with a return type of void. And if you do have a return statement, then that's where the method exits, so any code following it will be unreachable.
