The Newport Select Board is a holding public hearing tonight on changing the name of Lily Pond to Pout Pond. Ellen Pysz, longtime Newport resident made the request to memorialize her grandson Adam Pysz who killed last November when a pickup truck struck and the 17 year old and injured Adam’s co-worker David Cummings as they stopped on Rt. 12 in Charlestown to remove a deer from the road. Adam had always called the pond Pout Pond. The pond is located off John Stark Hwy across from Rugers. After the public hearing the name needs to be submitted to the US Geological Survey to complete the process.
