Seacrest Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Little Egg Harbor honored local hero Bert Politoski as he was discharged from their facility after recovering from knee surgery. Politoski, a well-known figure in the area, has been walking 20 miles a day since 1989, collecting almost 2,000 pounds of trash along the way.

The event included the presentation of a proclamation by the VFW, and Politoski expressed his gratitude to the Seacrest team for his recovery and shared plans to continue his walks.
