Keeping it smooth

Osborne is a smooth-singing songwriter who penned songs for Whitney Houston, television shows, and his own illustrious solo career.

Ride 'em, ranchers
The Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum owes a lot to local ranching and barbecue icon R.H. Tesene, who’s helped the museum by way of donations, including the BBQ Hall of Fame exhibit that features the brands of area ranchers and a huge amount of local history. An upcoming event honoring Tesene on his birthday will include barbecue, kids’ activities, and the exhibit.
