The completion of the W. Randy Smith Recreation Center has been delayed by high moisture levels in the concrete on which the building's gym flooring is to be installed. “It's like we're cursed or something,” Steve Catlett, executive director of the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Parks & Recreation board, told board members Tuesday. The 18,200-square-foot building on the campus of Musselman High School was on track to be turned over by this month, but Catlett reported Tuesday that the flooring work cannot be guaranteed under warranty if the moisture content of the concrete is above 85 percent.
