Siblings Scott, Steven and Stephanie Baio have sold their mother's Toluca Lake home at $3.15 million. The 11,075-square-foot house sits on more than a half-acre of gated grounds. The expansive master suite includes a sitting room, two fireplaces, a gym, a sauna and an office. There are a total of six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a 10-car garage. After roles in the sitcoms "Happy Days" (1977-84), "Joanie Loves Chachi" (1982-83) and "Charles in Charge" (1984-90), Scott Baio gained a new generation of fans playing lawyer Bob Loblaw on "Arrested Development" (2005)

It's tempting to call "The Garden" a story of innocence and experience, of evil corrupting paradise, but that would be doing a disservice to the fascinating complexities of a classic Los Angeles conflict and an excellent documentary that does them full justice. Produced and directed by Scott Hamilton Kennedy, "The Garden" takes us behind the scenes into one of the most incendiary L.A. situations of recent times. That would be the fierce battle over a 14-acre community garden at 41st and Alameda streets known as the South Central Farm, a dispute that turned so bitter and protracted it is still going on. It's especially fitting that Kennedy is the director.

The song that helped Potsie get an A+ in his college anatomy course on the TV show "Happy Days" has come to the aid of another hopeful entity. This time it's St. Joseph aspirin, which looked to the past to freshen its brand. When McNeil Consumer & Specialty Pharmaceuticals needed a song to pump the importance of aspirin and a healthy heart, it turned to Anson Williams as Potsie singing "Pump Your Blood" from "Happy Days" episode No. 142, "Potsie Quits School."

DID Charles McNulty see the same "Happy Days" performance that my wife and I saw [" 'Happy' Jumps the Shark," Feb. 27]? The show we saw was wonderfully entertaining. We haven't enjoyed a show so much since "The Producers." ELLIOTT PORTER Burbank

Harold Gould, a veteran character actor who played con man Kid Twist in the 1973 movie "The Sting," Valerie Harper's father on TV's "Rhoda" and Betty White's boyfriend on "The Golden Girls," has died. He was 86. Gould, who also was known for his stage work, died Saturday at the Motion Picture and Television Fund retirement community in Woodland Hills of prostate cancer that had metastasized, said Leah Gould, his daughter-in-law. A former university drama teacher who launched his career in front of the camera in the early '60s, Gould appeared in movies such as "Harper," the 1974 remake of "The Front Page," "Love and Death," "Silent Movie," "Freaky Friday" and "Patch Adams.
