Sand Key board to hire lawyers in zipline fight

The Sand Key Civic Association, opposed to a zipline course proposed for Sand Key Park, will seek attorneys to back them up. The board voted unanimously at a special meeting Thursday to retain the Trenam Kemker law firm to represent them in meetings with Pinellas County commissioners, who could approve the course's construction. "At this point we're just talking and hoping it ends at the (county) level," association president Gene Gillespie said. "That would be the ideal place for it to end."
