" BIG " picture, this is a good thing, there is not enough money to support the Iowa in Vallejo and in the end the taxpayers in Vallejo would be saddled with the upkeep. thanks for the effort Iowa fans and supporters but good riddence to the grey elephant, now let's spend all that time, effort and money getting this city shipshape..........
