Spring Hill’s New Title – Drug Abuse Capital of Florida…
Yes it read that right. The wonderful festering turd that is Spring Hill, that crappy sand pit that is full of violent transplants from up North has made national news again. Only this time instead of being the murder capital of Florida, which is a title it actually held from 2001-2010 (basically the reign of the incompetent Sheriff Richard Nugent), Spring Hill has a new national distinction.
Drug Abuse capital of Florida… namely Prescription Drugs.
While you might say, let these elderly idiots drug themselves to death… who-cares as long as they don’t get behind the wheel or harm someone. Most people in Spring Hill are all ancient retirees anyway… whats the problem?
Well the problem is that many of the drug abusers in Spring Hill are not elderly as are many people in Spring Hill. Over the past 5 years the population of Spring Hill has gotten a lot younger as the retirees begin to die off in record numbers. For example, in 2000 the average age of Spring Hill was 55 and in 2010 the average age was 39.5.
While this might look like a good thing on the surface for us Natives it really isn’t good at all. You see if these retired Yankees would just die off then everything would be fine and dandy. Unfortunately when an old Yankee retiree dies, their dirt bag kids inherit their parents or grand parents property and then move down here in their place. So where we had one retired Yankee before, we now have a small Yankee family of between 3 and 6 younger Yankees.
When these younger Yankees move down here they bring their crime habits with them, or turn back to their old ways once they fail to find any real legit jobs. As I have said before you can’t raise a family on wages from Wal-Mart, Target, or McDonald’s no matter how hard or how long you work. Unfortunately these are the top three non-government employers in Spring Hill.
One of the hottest criminal jobs in Spring Hill is the prescription drug racket. As the retired population died off in record numbers between 2000 and 2010, the cases of prescription drug related offenses, namely babies who are born in Spring Hill from mother who are addicted abuses of prescription drugs has hit a record high levels.
As the prescription drug abuse cases hit record high levels so did the level of home burglaries. Between 2000 and 2010 the number of home burglaries in Spring Hill shot up by 63%. In nearly every single case the burglars ransacked the house, took some easy to take items (cameras, GPS, loose guns), raided the medicine cabinets, and stripped them bare.
I myself was a victim of such a home burglary about a year ago. The thieves tore up our home, looted small items, and emptied all of our medicine cabinets, first aid kits, and vitamins. When I spoke with the deputies that came out they told us that crime in Hernando is out of control. They said that the local media doesn’t report on the actual crime rates because they are afraid that if the public knew that the few working people in Hernando would relocate, and any future growth with be statemented. In a nut shell the Hernando builders and real estate boards strike again. Nothing like putting their interests ahead of peoples safety.
It has gotten so bad in Spring Hill that NBC and USA Today.
Rock Center three hospitals (Oakhill, Brooksville, and Spring Hill) and spoke to doctors at many more. These babies may seem normal at birth, but within days they start having symptoms like severe shaking, tremors and more.
“They vomit. They have diarrhea. They’ll often have fever, sweating…extreme irritability,” said Dr. Mary Newport, the director of the neonatal unit at the Spring Hill Regional Hospital north of Tampa, Fla., in an interview airing Thursday at 10pm/9c on NBC.
USA Today has more of the same to write about, here is what they found out.
“The epidemic of drug-addicted newborns really follows exactly from the spread of the pill mills, the ability to buy prescription drugs like OxyContin on the street, to get them on the Internet,” Rubin says. “It’s staggering to think of the financial, emotional and social costs of this problem.”
Doctors want to intervene early to get pregnant addicts into rehabilitation. But some expectant mothers hide their addictions from their obstetricians because they fear government social workers will take the child, Solomon says.
A pregnant woman can’t quit cold turkey because as she goes into withdrawal, the baby will, too, says Mary Newport, medical director of neonatal intensive care at Spring Hill Regional Hospital in Spring Hill, Fla. “The baby could have seizures in the womb. They can miscarry,” she says.
One in 20 babies born in the semirural community north of Tampa (i.e. Spring Hill) is addicted to painkillers, Newport says.
!!! Are you freaking kidding me here. One in 20 babies born in Spring Hill is born addicted to painkillers. That just sickens me.
It also has me thinking that perhaps Spring Hill is sooooo bad that it has ruined any chances we Natives have at retaking Hernando County. But on the bright side, if this story can have one, it will likely prevent the Yankees from taking it over as well. Once the Yankees have ruined an area they won’t move to it. Look at St. Pete and Pinellas County. There are more people moving out of Pinellas County every year then moving into it. This is because Pinellas was the Yankees first attempts at colonizing an area to the point that they literally pave the entire target county over with concrete and force out all Native Crackers. So essentially Pinellas was the original Spring Hill.
Perhaps LeRoy was right to pick roots up and flee to the Appalachia region of Tennessee. LeRoy believed that Florida and Hernando were both a lost cause, so he fled to be with real Southern people vs. fighting a life long losing battle. I don’t believe Florida is lost, and believe that we can still save it. I guess I will have to see if I still hold this view after running the Rebel Yell for as long as LeRoy ran the Hernando Heckler.
In any event I’d like to see those snakes in the grass over at the City-Data forum dispel these facts. Namely Springhillian.
