    Sure you can!  I think I was a little unclear in my explanation, 
so let me try again.  The warning was being thrown because at some 
point early in the stylesheet, you have a '.center' rule that 
contains (among other things) a declaration of 'text-align: center;'. 
Then, near the end, you have:

.center {
    text-align: center;
}

All the validator is saying is, "you're being redundant."  It's just 
a helpful hint, like someone observing that if you're watching a TV 
show, you might not also need to be taping it.  Maybe you want to 
that tape anyway, and maybe you want to have two declarations of the 
same property for a class of elements, but at least this way you get 
a reminder to double-check.
    (Odd that the validator output cut off before the actual warning 
text.  Which browser were you using to run the validation?)
