BLACK MARK: In California, David Garrick reports a "divided and frustrated Escondido City Council voted 3-2 Wednesday night to spend $92,000 on consultants analyzing a proposed minor league ballpark that would be home" to the Padres' Triple-A affiliate currently playing in Tucson. Council members said that they were "upset at a recent revelation that one of the consultants they've hired to negotiate the roughly $50 million deal on behalf of the city," Charles Black, is a member of the Padres' BOD. Of the $92,000, $41,630 went to Black. The city "also paid Black $40,000 in September, bringing his total compensation from the city to $81,630" (NORTH COUNTY TIMES, 3/17).
