Commissioner Bruce Livingston said the time is right to have the session.

DUNEDIN - After decades of constant relocation and stints of homelessness, former U.S. Marine Mike Dunlap became a first-time homeowner at 55 years old.

On Feb. 13, Dunlap received the keys to his new, mortgage-free home in Dunedin, courtesy of the USA Homeownership Foundation Inc. DBA Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals partnership with Bank of America.

Fifty-five may seem like an unconventional age to take up permanent residence, but for Dunlap, staying in one place wasn’t part of his Marine Corps training.
