- A Mobile Free Pharmacy and Health Fair event will be held in Iredell County on Friday, January 13.

Church Street, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. According to the Iredell Free News, “The event is open to any person or family needing over-the-counter medications. Participants must be at least 18 years old to receive medicine. Everyone will receive up to eight over-the-counter medicine items free of charge. No identification is required. Individuals may pre-order medication for pick-up, or work with a trained professional to select from available medications the day of the event. Pre-registration is encouraged but not required.” (Iredell Free News)
- According to SpeedwayMedia.com, “Young’s Motorsports and veteran driver Spencer Boyd are set to tackle the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for a fifth season together. The partnership comes with a renewed sense of competition after Boyd suffered a dislocated shoulder in the second race of 2022 that put a damper on the season. “I want last season back,” remarked the 27-year-old Boyd. “We had great chemistry on the 12 team and showed speed early on. To make a long story short, we didn’t end up with the year we wanted and we are set out to put it all in the rear-view mirror with this season.”’ (SpeedwayMedia.com)
