By now, most of you are aware we had 4 rental golf carts stolen early Wednesday morning Jul 31 between 12:30 and 5:30 am. Persons of interest who stole the carts would have had keys and also been aware the carts had been left out overnight. Persons of interest may have visited Lake Ridge within the past few days. If you have any knowledge about the thefts or those  involved, contact the Cass County Sheriff’s Office 402-296-9370 or, you can call the Cass County Crime Stoppers hotline 800-527-3699 (you can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000).   The annual Ladies Invitational was once again a huge success. It was a perfect day for the 56 ladies who played in this year’s event. Would like to thank Kelli Eagen, Jean Ackerman, Tracy Priefert and all the other ladies who helped organize this event and all the ladies who donated gift baskets and raffle prizes. And let’s not forgot all the other volunteers who gave their time hitting balls and helping make this tournament fun for all. A lot of money is raised for the Lake Ridge Ladies League Scholarship fund and it simply would not be possible without everyone working together. Look forward to hosting this tournament again next year. This year’s winners are as follows: 1st Place First Flight – Peterson / Henke  64 1st Place Second Flight – Peters / Madsen 75 1st Place Third Flight – Whitehead / Johnson 82
