Former heavyweight champion John Tate says he is "willing to die" for his money and will appeal a ruling that denied him personal control over his $180,000 estate. Tate, who has a fourth-grade education, has admitted he is illiterate, but says that does not mean he is incapable of managing his business affairs.

Irwindale city officials are scheduled to hold a hearing Wednesday night to decide whether to declare a Sriracha hot-sauce plant a public nuisance in the wake of complaints of a spicy odor  coming from the factory. The public hearing is the latest move  in the city's effort to force sauce maker Huy Fong Foods to address the smell. In November, the city sued the company in Los Angeles Superior Court, winning a temporary, partial shutdown. A judge still must determine whether to issue a permanent injunction.  Sriracha officials are questioning whether the plant emits a harmful smell and have opened their doors for public tours of the plant as a way to counter the odor allegations.  PHOTOS: Sriracha factory About 50 people are expected to protest outside Irwindale City Hall during the hearing, Huy Fong officials say. Huy Fong officials say that holding the hearing is premature and punitive, but they will fix problems if they are found  “It seems like they just don't have the patience and they're not inclined to wait,” said John Tate, an attorney for Huy Fong.
