This week in 1989, officials from the federal government were thrilled with the first successful test of the B-2 bomber but some members of Congress warned the price tag may be too high for production. A two-hour test flight by the radar-evading aircraft over Southern California had the aviation industry talking despite the 18-month delay in the scheduled test. However, after the House and Senate Armed Services Committees both slashed funding from the Pentagon budget, the $500 million price tag per B-2 was expected to raise serious objections against mass production.
Donations continued to pour in for the Van Wert YMCA’s Camp Clay. St. Peter’s United Church of Christ gave $15,000 towards the construction of a shelter house on the site.
Dinners at the Landeck St. John the Baptist Church festival included homemade noodles. Among the people who helped make the noodles were Gert Ernst, John Fischer, Lynsey Rahrig, Missy Hammons, Denise Hammons, Jenny Schwinnen, Angela Kleman, Missy Geise and Christine Schwinnen.
