Guam - Almost a year behind schedule due to legal issues, the project to repair the dilapidated gym at Untalan Middle School is back on track with a new completion deadline of August - just in time for the new school year.

Acting UMS principal Valerie Kaipat said, "What we are doing right now is just securing a lot of the equipment that is existing in the building that belongs to the school and some other containers for storage, and the contractor will block off the area and its going to be off limits for the next three to four months."

Contractor Loyal Pacific started work this week. The cost, according to Kaipat, could run as high as a million dollars. The gymnasium was shutdown three years ago because it was structurally unsafe and a result, students over the last several years have been conducting physical education outside.
