Leftovers

Here’s eight photos from last week that didn’t make it into the paper, all taken by Times staff photographer John Green. Above and below, Foster City Mayor John Kiramis ships out for Southern California on Wednesday aboard his 50-foot power boat from Sausalito Shipyard & Marina. He’s resigning from the City Council and moving to Lancaster, in Los Angeles County, to help care for his ailing mother-in-law.

Nuffie Calbreath takes in the festivities with her dog Bella at Saturday’s Burlingame Pet Parade. Hundreds of pets and their owners turned out for the sixth-annual event.

Owners and their pets stroll down Broadway during the parade.

Above, third-grader Ashanti Caravez is among those watching a student performance of traditional Mexican dance, which is depicted in the photo below.

Johnny Edwards and the California campaign

The Insider paid a visit to the Green Building Exchange Tuesday, not only to buy some pervious concrete and cork flooring for the Chateau d’Insider, our secluded compound, but also to check out a new effort, spearheaded by PG&E and Sustainable San Mateo County, to help people go “green.”

And who should we run into but our old friend* Jeffrey Anderson, co-chair of the John Edwards for President campaign here in California.
