Under a canopy set up at the northern end of the County Road 92 bridge, a crowd assembled to rechristen the span, formerly called the Goodland Bridge, as the Stan Gober Memorial Bridge. Stan, the larger-than-life founder and owner of Stan's Idle Hour in Goodland, was honored for his impact on his community, and all the effort he put into a myriad of worthwhile causes.
