By Gwen Berghof A sea of orange and black coated the stands as the Santa Rosa High School football team took to the field. The first home game of the season brought a buzz of excitement to the air: the beginning of fall and the new school year punctuated by the promise of an thrilling season. The Panthers lined up against the Petaluma High Trojans, ready to play their best against a new team. And the game was a success- the Panthers beat the Trojans, 42-26. Petaluma scored the first touchdown of the game, but their lead was
By Isabella DeMattei Going out to a fancy restaurant for prom doesn’t have to break the bank. Many upscale restaurants have menu items that won’t break your budget, yet still give you the experience of a nice night out. One restaurant that is notorious for a great, but pricey, meal is Stark’s Steak and Seafood. Located in Historic Railroad Square, Stark’s has some of the best steaks in Santa Rosa, and the perfect ambiance for your meal.
