Mr. Food Dead at 81Submitted: 11/21/2012

WESTON, FLORIDA - Art Ginsburg, the delightfully dorky television chef known as Mr. Food, has died at his home in Weston, Florida.

Ginsburg, who was 81, enticed viewers for decades with a can-do focus on easy weeknight cooking and the tagline ``Ooh! It's so good!''

He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just over a year ago and died Wednesday.

The cancer had gone into remission following early treatments and surgery, but returned earlier this month.

Ginsburg had an unlikely formula for success in this era of reality cooking shows, flashy chefs and artisanal foods.

With a pleasantly goofy, grandfatherly manner and a willingness to embrace processed foods, Ginsburg endeared himself to millions of home cooks via 90-second segments syndicated to 125 local television stations around the country.

FOREST COUNTY - Prosecutors believe a Forest County man made meth and had other people buy ingredients for him.

36-year-old Shandon Tallier of Laona faces four felony charges.

Police became suspicious when Tallier bought ephedrine or pseudophedrine more than 50 times during the last year. Those are drugs commonly used to make meth.

Tallier was also blocked from buying the drugs more than 20 times in the last year. That's because he already bought more than the federal limit allows in a 30 day period.
