The U.S. Court of Appeals in March upheld a judge's decision last summer to dismiss three sexual abuse cases against Kevin Clash, the Dundalk native who served as the voice of Sesame Street's "Elmo" puppet. In affirming the lower court's ruling, the appeals court said it "considered all the plaintiff's arguments relevant to the accrual of their claims under the discovery rule and find them to be without merit," according to court documents filed last week by Clash's lawyer, Michael G. Berger.

You have to hand it to Elmo. That little red Muppet sure knows how to work a crowd. "Elmo love coming to Baltimore," he shouted in that squeaky, happy voice of his to a gym full of tiny kids sitting on exercise mats at John Eager Howard Elementary School. And the kids went wild at hearing "love" and the name of their hometown as the first words coming out of the mouth of the manic character they watch every morning on public TV. Elmo and the celebrated puppeteer who brings him to life, Baltimore native Kevin Clash, came to the school recently to promote PBS KIDS Raising Readers, a national literacy project that shares some of the same core goals as "Sesame Street" when it launched in 1969.

"This is the song. La la la la. Elmo's song. " More like: This is the song. La la la la. Always in my head. One day several weeks ago, I was attempting to trim Danielle's fingernails (since she doesn't fall asleep in my arms any longer) and I decided to Google "Sesame Street video" to find something to distract her from squirming. Enter "Elmo's Song. " Ever since, Dani has been clamoring for more and more of the video. Any adult goes near a computer in my house and she's on them immediately -- arms up, hopeful look on her face.

When Kevin Clash was a boy in Baltimore County, he'd watch TV mere inches from the screen and wish he could walk right into "Sesame Street. " It didn't take him long to get there. At 15, the kid from Turners Station became the regular puppeteer on a WMAR kids show. At 19, he performed as Cookie Monster in the Sesame Street float at the 1979 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and that night met his hero, Muppet creator Jim Henson. "Sesame Street" hired Clash in his early 20s. Before he turned 25, he took a gravel-throated red fur-ball and imbued him with a loving nature, a piping voice and a rapscallion innocence.

Having a big-name puppet come to town is not exactly child's play. "Video interviews with Elmo require a monitor and IFB for Elmo's performer," reads the news release announcing that the celebrity furball and Kevin Clash , the Baltimore native who brings him to life, would participate in the lighting of the Washington Monument on Thursday. IFB is an in-ear communication device, Downtown Partnership spokesman Mike Evitts informed me, noting that it's just one of the high-tech gizmos used to "preserve the illusion" that Elmo speaks for himself.

A fourth accuser is coming forward to claim he engaged in underage sex with former "Sesame Street" puppeteer Kevin Clash. On Monday, Florida-based attorney Jeff Herman filed his third lawsuit alleging that Clash, now 52, engaged in sex with minors. Herman also has filed suits on behalf of two of the previous three accusers. All three cases allege civil — in other words, noncriminal — violations, and are pending in the Southern District of New York. All three seek unspecified damages.

Don't let the Muppet on the cover fool you. My Life as a Furry Red Monster isn't a kids' book. It's the life story of Kevin Clash, the puppeteer behind Sesame Street's Elmo, who grew up in a Turners Station home filled with love, children - and "chemical odors" from the nearby Bethlehem Steel mill. How'd he get from there to "where the air is sweet?" "Kind of like a Cinderfella story," is how Clash summed it up to me the other day in his very un-Elmo baritone. "I'm not Elmo. I went through what everybody else went through."

Sheldon Stephens, the first man to claim that “Sesame Street” puppeteer Kevin Clash had an underage relationship with him, filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the former voice of Elmo.

He has said he and Stephens had a relationship after Stephens became an adult. Stephens soon retracted his claim, calling the relationship adult and consensual.
