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.

Burbank City Manager Mike Flad will assume the same post in South Gate after the city council there approved his new $215,000 annual contract on Tuesday. The confirmation came just a week after Flad surprised Burbank city officials with the announcement that his new job had all but finalized, and that the smaller, poorer city “seemed like a good fit for me.” At the council meeting, Flad addressed the reasoning behind his move. “I got into this business to make a difference, not to become the city manager of the largest city,” he said.

California is no longer reimbursing Burbank for its curbside recycling because the operator of the city's recycling center is accused of making more than $48 million in fraudulent claims. The city received nearly $20,500 in curbside recycling revenues from the state last fiscal year, according to a statement released Tuesday by the city. It will not receive any additional funds until a new operator is certified by the state and a new curbside application is approved. The California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery - known as CalRecycle - denied Burbank's application in January, but the city appealed.

The porn star who's made a name for himself with his guy-next-door looks and role opposite Lindsay Lohan in an upcoming indie flick came out Thursday against a proposed initiative to require condoms on adult film sets in Los Angeles County. At a news conference inside an adult entertainment company in Burbank, the porn actor, James Deen, likened the “Safer Sex” initiative -- Measure B on the Nov. 6 ballot -- to an infringement on the civil rights of him and other performers. “The idea of restricting our ability to make choices of our own is insulting.

Football coaches Corey Enman and Dan Moore have spent hours breaking down film on opponents this season. In addition, the coaches extensively scout every opponent in detail, spend an exhausting amount of time preparing their players for games and have developed elaborate offensive and defensive schemes. “We have probably watched over 100 hours of film so far this season,” Enman said. “We just try and do what we can to have the kids as prepared for games as possible.” Enman and Moore don't coach at the college level, or even among the high school ranks.

Bob Hope Airport officials approved additional parking rate increases this week to tackle steady revenue drops caused by declining passenger activity that's expected to be exacerbated by JetBlue's decision to eliminate all daytime flights at the airfield as of Jan. 6. The decision will eliminate one daily flight to JFK International Airport in New York City and another to Las Vegas. JetBlue's evening service to JFK will continue. A spokeswoman for the airline, Tamara Young, said in a statement that customer demand is “the ultimate factor in determining a route or flight schedule.” And despite cutbacks in Burbank, JetBlue's overall network continues to expand, Young said.
