The Kiwanis-sponsored all-star football game has been postponed. It traditionally had been played in July. No makeup date has been set.

Representatives of the Santa Rosa Kiwanis said the postponement was because of school policies regarding the use of equipment having been changed in response to player safety concerns.

The Kiwanis club said it was working with the high schools to determine the best time of year to have the game.
