Colorado marshal can't adjust to high altitude

NEDERLAND, Colo. (AP) — Nederland, Colorado's town marshal says he is resigning after just six months because he can't adjust to the altitude.

The Daily Camera (http://bit.ly/1l8PgwY) reports Monday that Jim Matheney wanted to dispel rumors, including one claiming he left the job in the quirky town just west of Boulder because of a space alien attack.

Matheney, a former police captain in suburban Detroit, says he left because he could not acclimate to the 8,400-foot altitude.

Paul Carrill, a former Kansas City, Missouri, sheriff's commander, is interim marshal.

The town, which has five officers and a sergeant, is also known for its Frozen Dead Guy Days festival, celebrating the corpse of a man who hoped to one day be revived.
