John Huthmacher

Staff Reporter

I am a journalist with 30-plus years of experience working for daily, weekly, and bi-weekly publications. I've written for pretty much every section in the daily newspaper I currently work for in Nebraska, including the religion page, sports, editorial, news, features and special sections. I've also won awards for my photography and am excited to be part of the appgrooves team. I am recently engaged and looking forward to marrying my future wife in about seven months or so, provided all our plans fall into place. When I'm not working, I enjoy fantasy baseball, disc golf, and working out, although working out isn't really all that enjoyable, to be honest. In my younger years I played bass and fronted a Christian rock band and still love to sing to this day, though opportunities are scarce beyond the shower or church service. I like to travel each year to California to visit my brother and his wife and take in my old neighborhood. I also enjoy visiting my brother at his beloved Alamo.
