An Idaho hockey team was suspended from a city ice rink after players engaged in a game of "strip hockey" -- shedding a piece of uniform every time a practice shot missed its mark. As redress for last Wednesday's incident, Boise banished the Idaho Junior Steelheads team from Idaho Ice World for four days. One 17-year-old player who shed his underwear was suspended until next week. Police are investigating whether public decency laws were violated, a spokeswoman said. An adult whose daughter was on an adjacent rink called a city hotline to complain.

CASCADE, Idaho --Kidnapping suspect James Lee DiMaggio appeared to be fortifying a patch of wilderness when he was fatally shot by an FBI agent Saturday in a raid that recovered 16-year-old Hannah Anderson unharmed in the Idaho backwoods, law enforcement sources told The Times. Authorities have released few details about how DiMaggio was killed. But sources said that before the confrontation, authorities had observed DiMaggio moving some wood and other materials around, possibly to fortify his position or make the hideout harder to see from the air. DiMaggio and Anderson were found with some camp gear, including a blue tent, said the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment.

Re "Hollywood shuffle," editorial, Aug. 25 I cannot believe that any elected member of a government would even consider giving a tax break to the entertainment industry, which confuses its investors about profit and loss. This hypocrisy on the part of the star-struck politicians gave me an idea: Why not refuse to let any movie not principally made in California use the term "Hollywood" in its promotional material? This may sound silly at first, but think about the long-term effect.

Just an hour north of Sun Valley, Idaho's celebrity hot spot, lies the Stanley Basin — an amazing region surrounded by snow-capped mountains, spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife, with the Salmon River — also known as the "River of No Return" — running right through the middle. Some 20 years ago, I spent serious time in this basin skiing and backpacking in the surrounding mountains, first with acclaimed Idaho mountaineering guide Joe Leonard and later alone or with various backpacking buddies.
