SPRING HILL – If you travel Waterfall Drive between County Line Road and Spring Hill Drive then you’ve probably noticed a life-size Tiger standing guard over a quaint two-story home.

SPRING HILL – A local intersection known as 4-Corners, Spring Hill Drive and Mariner Blvd, is gaining notoriety for its traffic accidents and criminal activity.

Chaos erupted again last night, after a minor traffic crash turned into a hit and run, physical altercation, and even a kidnapping.
