THE COMMONWEALTH OF UPSTATE NEW YORK. There were plenty of Virginian sightings in Saratoga. Here’s a partial list of the one’s we saw: Virginia Tech President Dr. Charles Steger (Bev Steinman annually host a part to benefit the DuPont Center, and there was this VT banner on Union Avenue in front of the Beresford Gallery across the street from the Reading Room), Jim Treptow, Vicki Moon, Bill Springer, Debbie Easter, Al Capolla, Nellie Mae Cox, Patty St. Clair, Michael Prentiss, Noel Twyman, Larry Levy, Bill, Becky and Will Massie, D.G. Van Clief, Peggy Augustus, Fouts — lots of Fouts, Sandra and Gus Forbush, Danny and Leslie Hazel, Anne and Dick Poulson, Tommy Lee and Diane Jones, John Coles, Carolyn and Sam Rogers, Ned Evans, Julie Chlopecki, Oliver Brown, Patrick Lawley-Wakelin, Billy Howland, Sam Maloney, Ernie and Betty Oare, Linda Reynolds and Chris and Diana Baker. I’m sure we missed somebody, but we were only there four days…
