Give your IFrame and link an ID so they can be referenced in javascript then change the src and href values in the onclick events of the 2 location buttons (you didn't post the code for your location so I'll assume they are just hyperlinks).

Also if you know how to put the Oswego and Aurora in 2 paragraphs that but up next to each other that would be great so I can remoave all the space chars
