KOSTER Hawes School teacher resigns The Ridgewood Police Department arrested and charged 27 teenagers for underage drinking at a house party on Hunter Road on Sept. 5. Sergeant Heath James and Patrolman Kevin McKeon reportedly observed the young people consuming alcohol and attempting to flee when the two police officers arrived. The 27 youngsters were released into the custody of parents or guardians and will face Family Court action for violating ordinance 3065, adopted after considerable controversy a few years ago, which allows police to apprehend underage drinkers on private property if the situation appears to warrant it. In an unrelated incident two days before, police arrested two 18-year-old men from Paramus and charged them with underage possession of alcohol and with having an open container in the vehicle after they were initially stopped for speeding on North Pleasant Avenue. Teens charged with underage drinking The North Jersey Fiber Arts Festival will be held on Oct. 2 and 3 at the Unitarian Society of Ridgewood, 113 Cottage Place, Ridgewood.
