Also featured is an article by Libby Willis on the Alexander family, who lived in Oakhurst in the '40s and '50s and had ties to President Lyndon B. Johnson.  In lieu of Yard of the Month, Fran provides an introduction to the Maxtin family, who are relatively new homeowners in Oakhurst (but have plenty of ties to the neighborhood).  Fred gives us his monthly patrol report, and Kathryn shares both her president's column and a selfie from January's ONA social at Mamma Mia's.  Remember that this month's meeting is coming up on Thursday, 2/9, and our next social will be returning to Mamma Mia's on 3/9!
