The city will contribute $25,000 toward a $300,000 gym project at the city's Lambert Park. "Voting against this thing would be like voting against motherhood and apple pie," City Councilman George Karos said. Earlier in the day at a meeting in Shepherdstown, West Virginia Gov. Cecil Underwood announced he would give the project $75,000 from his contingency fund.

Bids for the South Berkeley Recreation Center, a project made possible by Powerball jackpot winner W. Randy Smith, are scheduled to be opened on Jan. 31 after interested contractors asked for more time to submit proposals. Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks & Recreation Board Executive Director Steve Catlett said Tuesday that he still hopes the 18,200-square-foot building designed by Vienna, Va.-based Helbing Lipp Ltd. will be completed and open for use by the end of the year. Having received interest from 17 general contractors who attended a pre-bid meeting this month, Catlett is hopeful the cost to build the steel metal structure on the campus of Musselman High School will be relatively contained.

Bruce Epperly of the Downsville Christian Church in Williamsport, speak about the acute shortage of pastors in area churches, he decided to answer the call. The former Williamsport police chief and educator said Epperly was instrumental in his decision to become a pastor. He now preaches at Mt. Vernon Reformed United Church of Christ in Keedysville, which averages about 15 to 20 people at church services.

Delays in completing Berkeley County's public recreation center in Inwood, W.Va., have prompted officials to nix a plan to hold summer camps for children there this year. Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks & Recreation Executive Director Steve Catlett said Tuesday that uncertainty about when the W. Randy Smith Recreation Center will be completed factored into the decision to  postpone until 2014 the launch of the camps at the center. Catlett said officials decided to make the announcement the month before people registered for the Berkeley Summer Energy & Explorer Camps at the new $2.1 million facility.
