Maryland, meet Comptroller Peter Franchot's newest gimmick to convince you to collect more than $980 million in unclaimed property: Sherlock Franchot. This year's tongue-in-cheek campaign features Franchot as the beloved British detective Sherlock Holmes, complete with a calabash pipe, deerstalker hat and an "elementary" catch phrase. The campaign to reunite residents with lost property, waged every year, comes with a 151-page tabloid put in local newspapers that lists the tens of thousands of people whose lost cash and property ends up in the hands of the state of Maryland.  It also comes with a spoof YouTube video that opens with a deep movie-trailer voice.

If there's an elderly person in your life, you must take extra precautions to ensure his or her well-being during hot weather. Older people are more likely to become overheated and dehydrated, says Lila Sherlock, a geriatric clinical specialist at Greenwich Hospital in Connecticut. There are several reasons for this. "The older a person is, the less body water they have, a lower muscle-to-fat ratio," Sherlock says. "If there is less body water to start with, they can dehydrate easier."

The Doctor and the Detective: A Biography of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle" by Martin Booth (St. Martin's Minotaur, 371 pages, $27.95) Though his immensely varied and phenomenally constructive life was often eclipsed by his virtually miraculous Sherlock Holmes story, Doyle was a sublime Victorian polymath. Martin Booth, author of 12 novels and, among other books, a history of opium, has produced a biography that gives fair, balanced and fascinating measure to the whole man. A delightful exploration even for readers indifferent to Holmes -- if such people exist.

Guy Ritchie can make all the superslick, ultragreasy crime movies he wants ("RocknRolla" being the most recent and one of the greasiest), but now he has given us "Sherlock Holmes," and I'm sorry but I like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's characters. I have no fixed notion about how they should be handled, but it's a serious drag to see how Ritchie has turned Holmes and Dr. Watson into a couple of garden-variety thugs. People really want to see this movie. (So did I, despite the director.

To most of the world, Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character, a master of deductive reasoning created by British writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle over the course of 60 novels and short stories. But true Sherlockians, like those who will be gathering at the Pratt Library on Saturday for the 30th year running, know better. "There's a belief on our part that Sherlock Holmes was a real person," says Andrew Solberg, a member of Watson's Tin Box of Ellicott City, one of three Baltimore-area Holmesian societies putting together Saturday's gathering, which will feature talks and discussions by some of the area's leading Holmes authorities.
