Instead of answering a question this week from readers, I’m switching things up a bit. Late Friday night, Feb. 12, Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for sick children in Ashford, Connecticut, was hit with a major fire that destroyed several of the buildings. So, we’re devoting this week’s column to Paul Newman and hopefully assist in the camp’s rebuilding effort. (I’ll tell you how later).
Although most people immediately recognize the late, great Hollywood star’s name, there’s much to learn about Paul Newman when it comes to major league auto racing and, most importantly, Newman’s legacy as a philanthropist and founder of several charitable endeavors.
