Peninsula: Caltrans replaces ‘Millbrea’ sign

Residents and officials can rest assured that a brand-new highway sign on Interstate Highway 280 no longer proclaims their city as “Millbrea.”

Caltrans, which is replacing several freeway signs up and down the Peninsula, was notified of the error and fixed it approximately a month ago, according to agency spokeswoman Lauren Wonder.

The construction company picked up the cost of the replacement, because the misspelling started with them, Wonder said.

EAST PALO ALTO

Man faces 20 years for trying to rob store twice

A 19-year-old man is facing 20 years in state prison after a San Mateo County jury convicted him of trying to rob the same East Palo Alto liquor store two nights in a row last year.

Bryan McKnight will be sentenced Sept. 4. The jury on Friday found him guilty on six counts including robbery and felony firearm assault.

On Aug. 19, 2006, McKnight returned to the liquor store he had previously robbed.

He was arrested after pulling a gun on a police Explorer, who knocked the weapon out of his hand and subdued him.
