For those of you who think the Chowchilla kidnappers were just a bunch of misguided rich kids who have now "served their time" and deserve release, you should read this article about the parole hearing.

Thank you to The Almanac for bringing this to our attention.

The 79 acre estate was donated to Mid-Peninsula Open Space District last year and it will be added to the Windy Hill Open Space Preserve.
