    At 9 years old, Ryan Kock of Manning already knows what it feels like to be called a “retard.” When a Carroll boy of about the same age had the same slur spray-painted on his garage door, Ryan and his mother, 31-year-old Mary Germer, headed to Graham Park for an anti-bullying event organized in response. Carroll resident Summer Parrott, a mother and homemaker, organized the event after hearing about the vandalism. “I find controversial issues and turn them into positives,” she said in a previous interview. She used the local controversy over a corn-crib gazebo in a Carroll backyard to run a highly successful canned-food drive about a year ago. Although Parrott didn’t have an official attendance count, she estimated that well more than 100 people attended what she described as a “community-wide playdate.”
