Westport honors Paul Newman

The town of Westport held a special ceremony this morning to honor the late actor and philanthropist Paul Newman.

The 39-acre Newman Poses Preserve was officially dedicated to the long time Westport resident.

The land will be protected from development and will remain public open space.

Newman's daughter Lissy says she feels that protecting the land is something her father would have wanted.
