POWER TO THE PEOPLE: San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith wrote in a memo yesterday that city officials “can’t force Time Warner to broadcast Padres games or require it give cable companies that carry the games access to infrastructure.” But Goldsmith wrote an organized effort by Time Warner Cable customers “could do wonders.” In San Diego, Matthew Hall notes Goldsmith’s involvement "comes a few days after” San Diego Mayor Bob Filner and City Council member Sherri Lightner sent letters to TWC execs in N.Y. “urging them to end the impasse before it stretches into a second year” (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 3/7).

Trent Rosecrans noted he has “joined the team” at the Cincinnati Enquirer, where he will serve as a Reds beat writer alongside John Fay (CINCINNATI.com, 3/6)....The N.Y.
