Pirate gym being refinished and painted

 The gym floor at Postville High School is being painted and refinished this summer by Phillips Floor. The project, which is estimated to cost $26, 545., began last week and will be completed by July 1. The project is a joint effort between the school district and the Pirate Booster Club as the Booster Club has agreed to pay half of the final cost. The gym was originally opened in 1984.
