Kelly Musante Ronaldson, 47, appeared before Judge Greg Davis at the Kaikohe District Court on Friday. Police became aware of her involvement in the import- ation of ephedrine with Des- mond Ross Wilkinson in 2009. A search of Wilkinson s home in February 2010 found evidence of the manufacture of methamphetamine and mobile phone messages to Ronaldson making arrange- ments to manufacture. Both suspects became the subject of a police and cus- toms operation over the next 18 months that led to their arrest July last year. Wilkinson was sentenced in October for importing eph- edrine, manufacturing and supplying methamphetamine and possession of drug- manufacturing equipment, precursor chemicals and a firearm. He received eight years imprisonment, reduced to five years and nine months for his early guilty plea and because of his drug addiction. Ronaldson was convicted for importation of ephedrine, supply of 5g of methampheta- mine and conspiring to manu- facture methamphetamine. The principal charge of the supply of methamphetamine carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. Judge Davis says Ronald- son s good character, guilty plea prior to committal, co- operation with police and steps to address her rehabili- tation were taken into account. Ronaldson returned to Odyssey House in Auck- land to continue her drug re- hab after her sentencing. A relative says it s been a terrible experience but Kelly is making a big effort to beat addiction and get through the emotional challenges and has her family s full support . Thief steals girl's new bike Sad: Eight-year-old Mikaere Joe Tito Brown misses the bike she got for Christmas. She's pictured with mum Michelle Tito. NO 22 Harold Ave in Kaikohe is a happy home. Eight smil- ing children aged from 3 to 14 fill doorways, the driveway and a paddling pool. But this week one of them, eight-year-old Mikaere Joe Tito Brown, is sad and her mum Michelle Tito is angry. The new bike she bought for Mikaera Joe s Christmas was stolen last week. It s heartbreaking really, Michelle says. I saved for six months and spent about $500 in total buy- ing four bikes from The Warehouse for my youngest ones. It was our first Christmas here after moving back from Wellsford. And the first bike for Mikaere Joe that wouldn t have been a hand-me-down. Ms Tito says on the night of the theft there were a num- ber of parties being held in Harold Ave. She was restless and the family dog started barking incessantly. I got up and saw the bike gone from behind the house, she says. It was the first time it hadn t been padlocked. None of the other little bikes were touched. The police were good, they came straight round. Ms Tito would be grateful for any information. Maybe someone has seen a new bike turn up or knows who took it, she says. They were the ones on special at The Warehouse before Christmas. Contact Kaikohe police on 405-2960. Dog lover works magic for strays Animal lover: The Far North District Council's southern area pound manager Sue Dennis with a springer spaniel that is in need of a home. Photo: FAR NORTH DISTRICT COUNCIL Stray dogs impounded by the Far North District Council are going to new homes in greater numbers thanks to an Okaihau animal lover. The council only rehomed 1 percent of the 956 dogs it impounded in the two years before it contracted former SPCA kennels manager Sue Dennis to run its southern area dog pound in November 2008. Ms Dennis found homes for 465 (20 percent) of the 2278 dogs the council impounded during the first 36 months she managed the pound at her rural Okaihau property. Sue puts her success down to advertising on TradeMe. Most of the dogs go to homes out of the district. Some go as far as the South Island. I sent a wire-haired German pointer to Picton recently. She also uses her contacts in the animal welfare movement to find homes for dogs. A lot of people remember me. When their dog passes away, they contact me to see what I ve got. Council field services operations manager Andrew Dowdle says shifting the pound from Kaikohe to Sue s place in 2008 was a good move. Her knowledge of dogs and their nature is second-to-none and she ll only ever home the right dog to the right home. Auckland construction company owner Ben Price is thrilled with the beardie- collie-huntaway cross female he adopted from the pound a month ago after seeing an ad on TradeMe. Mr Price says he had been looking for a dog for months but had been disappointed with the selection at the SPCA s Mangere dog pound. Most of them come from south Auckland and a lot have been ill-treated or have staffie or pitbull in them. He was impressed with the variety of breeds at the Far North council s pound. He was happy to drive 250km to collect the dog which is now a much-loved member of his family. You re going to have it for at least 12 years, so you want to be able to meet it and see what it s like. A three-hour drive is well worth it. Phone Sue Dennis on 401-9359 to adopt a dog.
