We show that for any set S ⊆ Z, |S| = 4 there exists a 3-coloring of Z in which every translate of S receives all three colors. This implies that S has a codensity of at most 1/3, proving a conjecture of Newman [D. J. Newman, Complements of finite sets of integers, Michigan Math. J. 14 (1967) 481–486]. We also consider related questions in Zd, d ≥ 2.
