Robert Horton on TV
Herald movie critic Robert Horton is scheduled to be on NBC’s “Today” show today.
“A crew came to Seattle a couple of weeks ago to look at locations of movies shot in the area,” Horton said. Horton showed them around.
He’s expecting to be on between 10:30 a.m. and 11 p.m.
Take art today to Stanwood: The 2012 Port Susan Snow Goose and Birding Festival committee is encouraging local artists to submit work for the annual festival poster contest.
