Lynbrook never tasted so good.

In addition to vying for the hearts and stomachs of those in attendance, restaurant owners were also competing for awards.

The Lynbrook Farmers Market started two weeks ago on May 31 and has been a resounding success thus far, according to residents who have attended.

Bridget Atkinson said that she was impressed, especially by the amount of choices at the market and the quality of the products.

"The vendors were very friendly and chatty in sharing conversation about their produce, etc.," Atkinson said. "[I] will have to get down here regularly. So glad it has come back to Lynbrook."

BioSpecifics Technology Corporation may have played a major role in curing a rather embarrassing men's disease.

According to Peyronies.org, "Men with Peyronie's disease generally seek medical attention for pain or bending of the penis during erection, which results from inflammation and scarring in a particular part of the male anatomy known as the tunica albuginea."
