LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — Specialty hot sauce makers from around the globe are making their way to Lafayette this weekend for the inaugural Louisiana Hot Sauce Festival, where they hope to introduce hot sauce aficionados to new blends and spicy flavors.
Festival director Dana Romero tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1jWHS7B ) more than 100 vendors, including 30 different hot sauce makers, nine bloody mary mix makers, and arts and crafts makers are descending into the Cajun houses of Lafayette’s Acadian Village.
Romero says the oldest vendor participating in the event, CaJohn’s Fiery Foods out of Columbus, Ohio, has been crafting hot sauces for only 13 years.
The festival runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A pit bull named Ace is being hailed as a hero for licking the face of a sleeping, deaf 13-year-old Indianapolis boy to alert him that the house was on fire.
Indianapolis Fire Department Capt. Rita Reith says Nick Lamb was home alone and sleeping without his hearing aids when the fire began Wednesday.
“My dog licked my face and woke me up,” Lamb said. “I was like, ‘Stop it! What? You want to be fed?’ I thought he wanted to be fed or go outside.”
Ace didn’t stop licking Nick until the teen got up, too. That’s when he realized the house was full of smoke.
“I couldn’t hear anything because I had my cochlear implants off. ... My dog Ace smelled it,” Lamb said. “I just wanted to get out.”

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Drones could join guards keeping an eye on inmates in two Ohio prisons, according to the state corrections agency.
The Department of Rehabilitation and Correction is taking public comments over the next month about the proposal for unmanned aerial vehicles at Lebanon Correctional Institution and Warren Correctional Institution in southwest Ohio.
The drones, to monitor prison yards and fences, would augment existing security staff as opposed to replacing guards, Ed Voorhies, the agency’s operations managing director, told the Dayton Daily News on Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1nzxSMi ).

MACKINAW CITY, Mich. (AP) — A family said it has received an apology after a dead man was sent a bill for $500 to help defray the cost of emergency response to the northern Michigan car crash in which he died.

Carl Norman Little's stepdaughter Rebecca Beck told WPBN-WTOM (http://bit.ly/1qJQ75h ) that she couldn't believe that the bill was sent following last month's crash on Interstate 75 near Mackinaw City. The 64-year-old Gladstone man lost control of the car and died at the scene.

"I'm dumb-founded, frankly, with the whole thing," Beck said. "They billed my dad knowing that he was dead, because they removed his corpse."
