Kodiak woman surprises daughter with reunion


KODIAK, Alaska (AP) -- A Kodiak woman carried out a well-kept secret by showing up unannounced in Minnesota for a reunion with her daughter, a sophomore at the University of Jamestown in North Dakota.

Sina Timu surprised her daughter, Puni, an hour before the tipoff of her junior varsity women's basketball game at Minnesota State University-Moorhead. The Nov. 21 reunion was the first time mother and daughter had seen each other in almost a year and a half.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror says the visit was made possible by Puni's teammates, who raised the money to fly Sina Timu to Minneapolis.

Puni, who graduated from Kodiak High School in 2012, says she sensed something was going to happen the evening of her mother's arrival. But she couldn't figure out what it could be.
