problem with moisture in attic

Do you have anyone on staff that can help me with a problem with moisture in my attic? The situation is that my one story ranch home has A/C with flexible ducts in the attic. I suspect that it was not properly installed (or as I have been told, it probably was up to code at the time of installation in 1997, but the code has changed and it is not up to today's code) -- the reason I believe it was not properly installed is that I have had an ongoing problem with condensation dripping out of the ceiling (which started the first winter after the AC was installed and continued even after I had called the HVAC company for repairs), and now I have discovered mold growing in the plenum in the attic as well as a rusty condensate pan in the attic. The ceiling in my living room was badly damaged by this moisture and there is evidence of moisture/mold in the hallway along the ceiling/wall. It has been suggested to me that i need more ventilation. It has also been suggested that I need more insulation. I know I need to get rid of the mold and the moisture. I don't know what to do first. I don't know how much ventilation, or what kind.

Farm land values

Do you know what the value per acre is for farms in Wright County? I assume that there will be an updated publication for the annual Iowa Land Value Survey sometime early in 2014? We have an interest in 209 acres near Clarion, IA in Wright County

Use of Bosals in 4-h shows

My niece is showing her horse. He is 18 years old & has always been ridden in a bosal, but since the Iowa 4-h guidelines don't allow bosals to be used in shows at his age, we now must either get him to use a bit or not show him in the performance classes. Is it really worth taking him out of the bosal, which he listens to & respects? I feel that forcing horses to use a bit when they respond better without them, is unfair to the horse & the 4-h exhibitor. Especially if forcing a bit makes the horse unsafe or less comfortable. We will try to find a bit that will work for him, but is there anything that can be done now or in the future to change this rule? Thank you

Best way to exihibite Egyption Walking Onions in an open class at county fair?

What is the best way to exhibit Egyptian Walking Onion? Because of the characteristics of the specie with the entire plant being edible, the tops being the strongest identification of the plant, cutting the tops and drying, just doesn't seem the best way to show the quality of the plant. Any ideas, suggestions? The Wright county fair is the fair of choice. Please advise. Thank you. Cheryl Goltz.

Moving Iris

I have a bed of iris that needs to be reworked. I know that September (early fall) is the ideal time to move them, but without blooms, it is difficult to remember the colors (I have a lot!). Can they be moved when they finish blooming this spring while I still know where one color begins and ends? Will this affect their blooming next spring? Thanks!
