When you work with a guy for 33 years, you get to know him very well. Such was the case in working with D. H. “Dutch” Borcherding in The Missourian newsroom for all those years. He began with The Missourian as a sportswriter and then became sports editor. His newspaper career began at the New Haven Leader.

Rarely did “Dutch” lose his temper, or even complain. He was careful, very cautious, in his criticism of people, coaches, teams, the officiating of a game, or players. He usually saw the good side of people, events and just about anything. We never knew his politics. We didn’t know if he was a Democrat or Republican. We didn’t know if he had a favorite high school team except that he was a graduate of New Haven High School way back in 1937 and his leanings were in that direction, but not to a fault.
