The cost of a kidney replacement at The John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore was initially estimated at about $350,000, but is now expected to cost more than $700,000. The 13-yearold and her family spent two weeks there being tested to see if the treatment was possible and if any of their kidneys would match and could be donated. •Turn to page 4 PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Vehicles can be clamped says bar owner • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A NEW bar and cafe is adamant it can clamp or tow away non-customers’ vehicles, even though the district council says the matter is unresolved. The Black Door Bar and Eatery opens in Lincoln on Friday on the site of the old Tea House on Robert St. Clamping and tow away signs appeared several weeks ago covering five parallel car parks outside the bar and seven outside the adjacent Lincoln Village Pre-School and Nursery. Two of the signs outside the nursery have been removed in the past week. But the district council is still considering legal advice over whether the signage complies with the resource consent. Black Door owner Anita Alder has not been responding to questions from the Selwyn Times about the issue. But she has stated its case on the Black Door’s Facebook page after a post over the issue. Ms Alder said there was a resource consent on the 12 car parks that are registered to 6 Robert St for the use of the business. •Turn to page 7 Local kid, Ethan Hunt interviews Sean Bailey from Lemonwood Grove, Faringdon’s very own primary school.
