CHOWCHILLA - The Chowchilla City Council has decided to rename the City’s Sports & Leisure Park after Mr. Edward Ray.

The kidnapping launched Chowchilla into national headlines and created a day that many still would like to forget.

The children and Mr. Ray were driven around for 11 hours in two vans before being entombed in a moving van buried in a Livermore rock quarry. Fortunately, Mr. Ray and some older boys pried open the weighted roof lid and escaped after being underground for 16 hours.
