It was a busy week of news at the Jersey Shore and there was so much going on here in our local communities.

There were stories of heroism, emotional stories of all kinds, and national stories turning local among many news stories that got all of our attention this week.

A Jackson woman went missing mysteriously for 11-days, court rulings came down in two big cases that have occurred across the Jersey Shore over the last few years, a Monmouth County Dad is literally doing it all to help his son battling Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy continue to fight, two Marlboro Police Officers are being hailed as heroes for saving an infant's life -- these are just some of the stories that were among the most impactful in this last full week of February.
