Thankfully the rivalry between Ben and Matt Paradis never reached Biblical proportions, but for Ben, growing up with a "little" brother that was twice his size could some- times be intimidating. Now Matt is using his intimidat- ing size (6' 3"- 290 lbs.) and athletic skills to help pay for his college educa- tion and earn him national attention. Matt is the son of Council schoolteacher Janice Paradis, and Adams County Commissioner and rancher Mike Paradis. At Council High School Matt played on the varsity foot- ball team for three years, played basketball four years, and was on the track team all four years. Paradis had played both defensive and offensive lineman for the Lumberjacks, rack- ing up 186 tackles and 17 sacks over his )unior and senior seasons. He made appearances on the all- state team as a sophomore and as a junior. During his senior foot- ball season, Matt tore his ACL. In spite of that, he stayed on the team and even participated in a game, making two points on Senior Night. Matt was recognized as the 1A All- Idaho Player of the Year in 2008. After Undergoing sur- gery to repair his knee, he recovered well enough by track season to take the 1A state championship in the discus throw. On top of everything else, he was a member of the National Honor Society. Paradis graduated from Council High School in 2008, and began classes at Boise State University See PARADIS STARTS FOR BOISE STATE, page 13 \ arene 75-year anniversary This weekend the Council Nazarene Church is celebrating its 75th anni- versary.

Who would be better at teaching someone math than some- one who didn't understand it but who labored through the steps it took to figure it out? A teacher like that wouldn't assume that you understood each lesson. A teacher like that would appreciate the trouble many people have with math because that teacher had "been in their shoes. Chuck Ramsay is one of those teachers. This is Ramsay's first year at Council High School, where he teaches math and science.
