John Mackey has spoken on many occasions on the topics of credit, FICO scoring, and debt collection defense. Said Mackey, “There is so much misinformation on credit, credit scoring, and debt collection that has been perpetrated by our professional institutions, credit bureaus, and advertisements. Nobody recognizes what the truth is anymore. Credit is one of the most important factors in American’s lives now. It determines where we live, what we drive, and how much we pay for items, even items that don’t even appear on the credit report (mobile phones, for example). We are penny wise and pound foolish and how we purchase items. I am here to shed light on the truth.” Mackey is founder of creditGeni.us, Master Credit Solutions, US Credit Project, and Give Me Credit Media. John is a former radio show host of “Give Me Credit”, heard both locally and nationally. Author of the current book, "Debt Collectors: Lies, Damn Lies, And Deceit", currently being sold on Amazon and Barnes & Noble online.

Clyde Doepner, the official Minnesota Twins curator, will bring alive the history of the Twins through stories and baseball memorabilia.

Before he became the only full-time curator in Major League Baseball, a position he has held with the Twins since 2009, Clyde Doepner was both an avid collector of Twins memorabilia and a longtime history teacher at Tartan High School.

His association with the Twins grew out of a chance encounter with former owner Calvin Griffith, and his collection of team memorabilia became particularly notable when the organization had its first TwinsFest at the Metrodome in 1989. Being hired in 2009 as a full-time employee, he said, was a dream job.

Doepner has logged memorabilia from all generations of Twins baseball — Harmon Killebrew to Kirby Puckett to Joe Mauer and now the new generation with Miguel Sano and co. Among his favorite pieces are those from Killebrew, a player he considers his hero. But the collection still is growing, as evidenced by an addition from the very recently retired Torii Hunter.
