Title: Hamilton City Police Seeking Info On
Waikato Police are seeking the
assistance of the public to locate a 15 year old girl,
missing since November.
Detective Karl Little of Hamilton
City Police says Trinitee Kahvanna-Mari Maxwell, known as
Trini, was last seen on the 17th of November 2012 in
Hamilton West, where she was in the care of Child, Youth and
"Enquiries have ascertained that Trini had been
in communication through a social media site, since being
reported missing and may have been in Henderson, Auckland.
She is also known to frequent Hamilton and Tauranga. Whilst
we don't believe Trini is in any danger, we want to locate
her, due to her age and her vulnerability."
Little says Trini is described as Maori, of medium build and
around 5 foot 2 in height with straight dark hair. She has
the word 'LOVE' tattooed across her right hand knuckles and
an unfinished tattoo on her right ankle.
"Anyone who has
seen Trini, or who may know her whereabouts is urged to
contact Hamilton City Police on (07) 858 6200 or phone
Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."

On First Time Voting (Centre Right)
For the next two days, I’m turning my column over to two guest columnists who are first time voters. I’ve asked them to explain why they were voting, for whom and what role they thought their parental upbringing had played in shaping their political beliefs ; and at the end, to choose a piece of music.
One guest columnist will be from the centre right, one from the centre left. Today’s column is from the centre right – by James Penn:
As someone who likes to consider himself, in admittedly vainglorious fashion, a considered and rational actor, the act of voting for the first time is a somewhat confusing one. I know that my vote has a close to zero chance of actually influencing the outcome of Parliament. The chance I will cast the marginal vote that adds to National or Act’s number of seats in Parliament is miniscule. The chance, even if I did, that doing so would affect the government makes voting on a strictly practical level even more spurious as a worthwhile exercise.
But somehow I have spent a large amount of time (perhaps detrimentally so, depending on the outcome of my upcoming exams) agonising over how to cast my first vote in a national election. More>>
