Posted to: Ansonia, Seymour

Seymour Police Chief Michael Metzler is retiring in June after 30 years as the town’s top cop.

He also spent just over a decade on the job in Ansonia.

In this free-wheeling episode of “Navel Gazing: The Valley Indy Podcast,” Metzler talks about what it was like to patrol Ansonia in the late 1970s, how he tried to keep external politics out of the Seymour Police Department, and what’s changed in law enforcement since 1976.

Posted to: Seymour

First Selectman Kurt Miller said he’s “cautiously optimistic” that power will be restored to much of Seymour by late Friday night.

Miller said Eversource, the utility company, published the restoration estimate on its website Thursday.

“I think that’s probably a number we can use realistically. That’s their hope for having 100 percent back,” Miller told The Valley Indy.

Posted to: Derby, Oxford, Seymour, Navel Gazing: The Valley Indy Podcast

The National Weather Service issued a statement late Wednesday saying that tornadoes touched down in Beacon Falls and Oxford Tuesday.

The Beacon Falls tornado had winds of 110 mph and moved along a 9.5 mile path between Beacon Falls and Hamden, according to the National Weather Service.

The Oxford twister had 100 mph winds and moved along a path of 4.5 miles. They didn’t give a precise location, but said it moved into Southbury. More detailed info could be released Thursday.

file Ansonia’s Board of Education has filed a lawsuit asking a judge to prevent the city from taking $600,000 from the school board’s budget for 2017-2018.

Posted to: Ansonia, Derby, Seymour, Shelton, Navel Gazing: The Valley Indy Podcast


Due to the large numbers of downed trees and wires, Seymour residents could be in for a long wait before power is restored.

“There is no current estimate for power to be restored. Expect prolonged power outages for multiple days,” according to a statement from the Seymour Police Department.

In addition to the obvious damage, three of the five electrical substations in Seymour were damaged during Tuesday evening’s quick but powerful rain and wind storm, First Selectman Kurt Miller said.

“At this point they are telling us it’s probably going to be a few days before power is fully restored,” Miller said.

There’s no telling how long the power will be out.

Derby Superintendent Matthew Conway sent an email 7:30 a.m. Wednesday saying schools were closing due to downed trees wreaking havoc on bus routes, the staff’s inability to get to work, and a water issue at the high school.
