Nederland Marshal Leaving Because Of Altitude, Not Aliens

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

The Daily Camera reports Monday that Jim Matheney wanted to dispel rumors that included that he left the job in the quirky town 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.
