About That Toothbrush Wait!

Before you lather up the toothbrush you bought on sale 3 years ago, take a

minute to learn some

facts that will help you become a better and more informed brusher.

Any toothbrush you have used for more than 3 or 4 months is history, as far as its ability to fight plaque is concerned.

Plaque is a thin, colorless film of bacteria that

constantly forms on your teeth. If it is not removed, plaque can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. A worn-out toothbrush cannot effectively clean off that plaque. Also, bent or broken bristles can injure your gums. Although individuals vary in how quickly they wear out a new toothbrush, generally your toothbrush is maximally effective for about one season. If you replace your brush each summer, autumn, winter, and spring, it will always be up-to-date in plaque fighting effectiveness -- never part of history.

September 20: Darby Field & the “First” Ascent of Mount Washington, Alton, NH. Fore more than 200 years historians believed that Field made the first climb up Mount Washington in 1642. However, in the last several decades, questions have emerged about his use of Native American guides, about the likelihood of prior ascents by Native Americans, about the route Field may have followed, and about whether he actually made the ascent as claimed. We will examine how historians reconstruct the “truth” when given scant, vague, and even contradictory evidence. Presented by Allen V. Koop, Dartmouth College; hosted by the Alton Historical Society. 7 p.m. Gilman Library, 100 Main Street. (603) 875-3961. September 20: The Four Aces, Nashua, NH.

North Hampton, NH. Louis Wagner was charged with murdering Anethe and Karen Christenson on Smuttynose Island, Isles of Shoals, in March of 1873. He was convicted on the first charge and executed in 1875. Although sentiment against Wagner was at a fever pitch immediately following the murders, time and reflection have generated an ongoing debate as to the fairness of the trial and the validity of the verdict. Drawing from the trial transcript, media reports, and the cultural milieu in which the trial took place, independent scholar John Perrault invites you to examine the law’s judgment of Louis Wagner.
