Fangonilo is no joke on the court
If Kristhel Fangonilo made a New Year’s resolution, it would have probably been to pull more pranks on her teammates and coaches. Fangonilo certainly piled up the jokes in 2014, enough to have every member on the Kodiak girls’ basketball team on guard when she is around. “She is a little prankster,” Kodiak assistant coach Sandra Gregory said. “She likes to think that she is really good at it.

Trespassing and illegal drug use were not the only bad decisions a Kodiak man seems to have made before Alaska State Troopers caught him — after he allegedly lurked around the home of the city’s top cop, officials said Thursday.

Bob Pederson should not make rules for Kodiak
