Providence High School senior speaker Alexia Townsend and her 151 classmates got their diplomas Saturday at a peculiar place that had spooked her parents, she said. “They would have slept here to get good seats, but they didn’t because it’s a graveyard,” she said. But the solemn surroundings outside the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills weren’t without meaning, she said. “Graves quite literally leave their mark on the world,” she said, explaining that her experience at Providence had left its mark on her and her peers.

The Orchard Supply Hardware store in Burbank is clearing things out before closing down, with the hardware store slashing prices in a final clearance sale. The OSH, located on Victory Boulevard, is one of 17 in the state being closed in the wake of the San Jose-based chain's entrance into Chapter 11 bankruptcy this summer and its subsequent acquisition by competitor Lowe's Companies Inc. Until it closes, all merchandise in the store is being sold at 25% to 70% off. Leigh Parrish, an OSH spokeswoman, said because stores will close based on how quickly clearance merchandise sells, the company couldn't set official closing dates.
