Perhaps hoping to hit a home run of a different sort, former baseball outfielder Barry Bonds has put his Italian-inspired estate in Beverly Park up for sale at $25 million. Designed to function both as a place to host large-scale events and as a family home, the 17,100-square-foot villa sits beside a circular motor court centered on a multi-tiered fountain. The 1.85 acres of grounds include an outdoor kitchen, a swimming pool with a cabana, a 2,100-square-foot sports court, an olive grove, a lawn and a rose garden.

Annette Cook, the founder and chief executive of Barefoot Dreams, and her husband, Stan , have sold an ocean-view contemporary in Malibu for $3 million. The gated home, built in 1983, has four bedrooms and four bathrooms in 4,089 square feet. It sits on 1 1/2 acres with lawns and fruit trees. There are stone patios, a built-in barbecue, a fire pit and a spa. A separate guest suite with a den, a bathroom and a kitchen sits above the three-car garage. Cook has appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and "The Big Idea With Donnie Deutsch," among other shows, to discuss her business success, born out of the need to pay off $85,000 in student loans.

Re "District's Bathroom Brouhaha," June 18: I believe it comes down to priorities: classroom books for the students or $100,000 for private bathrooms; smaller classrooms or $100,000 bathrooms; raises for the teachers or $100,000 bathrooms; supplies for the schools or $100,000 bathrooms; fine arts and sports in the schools or $100,000 bathrooms. Is it that difficult to decide what's right for the children in the public schools? The L.A. school board members need a place to escape the throng of questions thrown at them in the hallways--I'm so sorry they are so inconvenienced.
