I was 10 years old when Sheriff Bulman was shot and killed. I knew him and his wife as friends of my parents, Sheriff Arthur (Art or AJ) and Lucille Kutschat from West Union. Sheriff Bulman and my Dad were social as well as professional friends. My Dad was called and responded to the scene in Postville.
