A Walmart Supercenter in Fayetteville, N.C., reopened Wednesday morning, two days earlier than anticipated following protests related to the death of George Floyd.

District manager Brady Rowland told The Fayetteville Observer that the store’s 300 employees and members of the community have been working to get the business reopened quickly.

“They all came to work,” he said. “They all had dustpans and brooms and [were] wearing gloves and masks… Literally, the community had come out to try and clean up. They cleaned the entire parking lot, moved things outside. They were like, ‘What happened last night is not our community. We are here to support our local store.'”

The Walmart was reportedly damaged during protests on Saturday night following the death of Floyd on May 25 while he was in Minneapolis police custody.

Hundreds of people charged the store’s front doors right after midnight and began kicking them in, The Observer reported. The disruptors also poured white paint on the floors and stole items off the shelves — some of which still remain empty.

Rowland also said there were still hundreds of looters in the Walmart just before 7 a.m. on Sunday when he arrived for his shift.

“There were still tons of cars, probably 150 to 200 people still out running in and out of the store,” he told The Observer. “All the doors were still open. People are still loading up stuff against the building.”

He was forced to call 911 so police could help escort him into the building, he said.

“Literally, [police] were here in a couple of minutes. A bunch of them showed up,” Rowland added.

An image of hope in turbulent times shows a police officer praying with a protester in Tennessee.

It was captured on camera the same day violence broke out in Nashville, leaving at least 30 businesses and buildings damaged, FOX 17 reports.

Officer Garren Hoskins, tasked with protecting the Central Precinct, started talking with a peaceful protester who was preaching about their shared faith.

The officer asked him if he’d like to pray. The protester put down his sign and the two embraced and prayed.

“It was very touching,” Hoskins told the media. “That gentleman was such a nice guy. I believe it created a solidarity there between him expressing his freedom of speech and me there as a police officer and that’s something the world needs to see.”

PEACEFUL PROTESTERS WITH ANTI-POLICE SIGNS CAST DOUBTS OVER UNIFYING MESSAGE

The officer noted that their embrace had an impact on others around them, especially after some rocks were thrown at them. FOX 17 reports that later in the day, 28 people were arrested downtown. Fires were set inside the Nashville historic courthouse and City Hall, and businesses and police cars were vandalized.

“You can see rioting and looting in all cities across the United States,” Hoskins said. “But I think there are things happening outside of those images that are real and powerful, and my image happened to be caught at that time.”

He didn’t know the image was caught on camera until the department posted it, and it immediately went viral.

Hoskins concluded that the image shows a “peaceful solidarity” between law enforcement and society, showing there can be a “peaceful outcome” when both sides come together.

Though the two cordially wished each other well, the officer said he’d love to sit down, hang out and have a cup of coffee with the protester.

San Antonio Spurs guard Lonnie Walker IV helped clean up some of the buildings in San Antonio that were damaged during the George Floyd protests Saturday night.

Walker was among a group Sunday morning who helped clean up businesses in the central part of the city, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

EX-NBA PLAYER J.R. SMITH PUNCHES, KICKS MAN WHO ALLEGEDLY VANDALIZED CAR DURING LA GEORGE FLOYD RIOTS: VIDEO

“I take great pride in saying that I live in San Antonio,” Walker told the Express-News. “I am part of this community.”

Walker, who was in the middle of his second season with the Spurs before the league pressed pause on the season due to the coronavirus pandemic, handed out water bottles to other workers, police officers and fans. Walker received praise from fans who were also in the area while he was cleaning up and helping out.

“I am just trying to be another human being playing my part,” Walker told the paper. “I am not Lonnie Walker who plays for the Spurs. I am not an NBA player. I am just a regular human being trying to do what we are supposed to do, and that’s to create peace, positivity, and joy throughout everybody’s lives.”

MICHAEL JORDAN ON DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD: ‘WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH’

According to the Express-News, around 5,000 demonstrators flocked to downtown San Antonio to march in support of Floyd – a Minneapolis man who died in a police-involved incident last week. The protests then turned violent as some people clashed with police.

“Everyone is not seeing eye to eye at the moment,” Walker said. “There are people who have an abundant amount of emotions who really don’t know how to express themselves, and that’s why you have mistakes. All humans make mistakes. The most we can do is forgive them.”

LEBRON JAMES ASKS, ‘WHY DOESN’T AMERICA LOVE US,’ AMID GEORGE FLOYD UNREST

Walker didn’t give his thoughts on the Floyd incident and instead wanted to focus his efforts on helping to clean up the city.

“We are here as a group,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if you are white, black, Mexican. We are trying to get to the end all be all, which is that world peace. Peace, positivity, and being equal. It all starts here. So, spreading love is, for sure, a pinpoint for it.”

The 21-year-old was averaging 5.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in 53 games for the Spurs. San Antonio was 28-35 before the season was on hold.

Tennessee Titans’ Kevin Byard isn’t just one of the top safeties in the NFL — he’s also a great son.

Byard took to social media to share a personal moment with fans, revealing that his former “pipe dream” of buying his mom a home has finally become a reality.

BRONCOS’ MELVIN GORDON JOKES PLAYING FOR CHARGERS IS LIKE PLAYING IN FAN-LESS STADIUMS: ‘I’M NOT MISSING ANYTHING’ 

“When you come from where I come from, stuff like this is a pipe dream that only a few are able to accomplish,” the 26-year-old pro wrote on Twitter.

COWBOYS’ MIKE MCCARTHY READY FOR ALDON SMITH’S NFL RETURN: ‘HE’S IN GREAT PHYSICAL SHAPE’

“I hate that we couldn’t be there but I’m more happy that everything worked itself out. I love you mom and enjoy your new forever home!”

Byard’s dream to buy his mom a home was no doubt made easier after he became the highest paid safety in NFL history after signing a $70.5 million contract extension in 2019. He is second in annual salaries behind the Chicago Bears‘ Eddie Jackson, according to overthecap.com.

A third round draft pick in 2016, Byard was selected for the Pro Bowl and named First-Team All-Pro in his second year. He finished last season with 84 tackles, nine pass deflections and five interceptions.

Handshakes with new acquaintances and hugs from loved ones feel like something of a relic amid the COVID-19 pandemic. But one grandmother found a fun, colorful way to greet her grandkids.

The grandma only lives a few blocks away from the grandchildren, but it was the first time they had hugged since March 17, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The clip of the colorful reunion has been viewed over 2,000 times on Instagram with many users expressing how they were touched by the colorful reunion.

Missing New Zealand hikers found alive after 19 days in ‘hostile’ wilderness, rescuers say

Two hikers lost in the “hostile” wilderness of New Zealand have been found alive with only minor injuries after 19 days, rescuers said.

Dion Reynolds and Jessica O’Connor, both 23, were rescued from the vast Kahurangi National Park on Wednesday after a rescue helicopter spotted smoke from a fire the hikers lit in a small clearing.

“This is a fantastic outcome and one that we were all hoping for, although we were becoming increasingly concerned as the days progressed,” said police area commander Paul Borrell in a statement.

The pair began their hike on May 9 and only intended to be gone for about five days. But within the first few days, they got lost in fog. A friend reported them missing on May 18.

The pair’s disappearance sparked a search involving 50 people, including five tracking experts, three dog teams and two helicopter crews.

“This search was particularly challenging being such a remote rugged, bush-clad area,” said Sgt. Malcolm York, Nelson Police Search and Rescue Coordinator.

After suffering minor injuries and with their food supply dwindling, Reynolds and O’Connor decided to stay in one place and await help. Police said they ran out of food some time before their rescue.

St. John ambulance spokesperson Ngaire Jones said the pair was brought by the helicopter to Nelson Airport. They were then taken to Nelson Hospital, Jones said.

Police said their condition seemed very good considering their long ordeal.

Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond surprised a Florida restaurant worker on Sunday.

Drummond left a $1,000 tip on a $164 check at Che Restaurant in Delray Beach, Kassandra Diaz shared in social media. A picture of the receipt was posted on the restaurant’s Instagram page.

“When I was given the checkbook, I went to put in the tip & information to close the table and I couldn’t believe it,” Diaz said. “From a $160 check, the tip read $1,000. I was shaking and had tears of happiness after what he left me.

“I had no idea how to react, I didn’t want to draw attention but at the same time I couldn’t describe the amount of appreciation I had/have. It’s so amazing to see people displaying acts of kindness in these uncertain times. This is a story I will never forget, thank you again so much @andredrummondd!!”

Drummond replied to the picture: “Thank you for being amazing!”

Jose Diaz, the restaurant’s manager, told the Sun-Sentinel that Drummond had brunch with a woman and a child.

Drummond was averaging 17.5 points and 11.1 rebounds in eight games with the Cavaliers. The team acquired him from the Detroit Pistons earlier in the year.

Two big Hollywood stars dared each other — and their fans — to take The Murph Challenge for a good cause on Memorial Day.

Chris Pratt challenged John Krasinski — who challenged Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson — to the yearly Memorial Day tradition honoring a fallen warrior. “It is a tradition that helps push us, humble us, and allows us the opportunity to dedicate a bit of pain and sweat to honor, LT. Michael P. Murphy, a man who sacrificed everything he had for our freedom,” the Instagram caption read.

The Murph Challenge is a CrossFit workout consisting of a mile-long run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 air squats and a final mile run — all while wearing a 20-pound vest or body armor.

The challenge’s namesake is Lt. Michael Murphy. He was a native of Patchogue, N.Y., and a dedicated New York Rangers fan. He also was an athlete and star student from Penn State who turned down offers to attend law school to join the Navy SEALs instead, as Fox News previously reported.

He died in a 2005 firefight in Afghanistan that left three SEALs dead in all. He posthumously received the Medal of Honor — “for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life,” as the official citation read — and was spotlighted in the 2013 movie, “Lone Survivor.” He also was the first SEAL to have a ship named after him — the guided-missile destroyer Michael P Murphy was commissioned in summer 2011.

His father, attorney Daniel Murphy, told Fox News: “Michael did this CrossFit regimen, which he called Body Armor during his five years as a Navy SEAL as a training program, and he would do it with a 20-pound armor vest. His normal time would run about 32 to 33 minutes, but his best overall time was 28 minutes and change.”

Murphy told Fox News that the regimen was renamed by the CrossFit community in 2007, as a workout challenge by Dr. Josh Appel, an emergency room physician in Tucson and para-rescue soldier who recovered Murphy’s body in Afghanistan.

Appel told Fox News, “‘Murph’… is a workout performed on Memorial Day to remember all who have given the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. It’s a way of honoring lives lost with effort, sweat and pain. If it makes you feel miserable and exhausted — you’re doing it right.”

A Utah climber who fell and cracked his head while scaling a cliff by himself on Sunday was rescued after he regained consciousness, and nearby campers heard his cries for help, authorities said.

The 52-year-old man, whose name has not been released, was climbing up a slot in the cliff near Jones Hole National Fish Hatchery, by the Colorado border, when he fell an unknown distance, the Uintah County Sheriff’s Office said. He told rescuers he didn’t know how long he was unconscious before he awoke and yelled for help.

The group of campers, which included a member of the sheriff’s search and rescue team, heard the stranded man’s calls. They were unable to pinpoint the man’s location because his cries echoed off the cliff walls. They called authorities around 1:40 p.m., setting off a five-hour rescue operation.

“The area he was climbing in is out of the way. You wouldn’t really expect someone to be climbing there,” Sheriff’s Sgt. Dustin Cheshire said. “If it hadn’t been for the camping group with a Wasatch County search and rescue member who heard this guy yelling and screaming, it’s unlikely anyone would have found him.”

The sheriff’s office sent a search and rescue team and requested helicopter crews from both the Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS) and Classic Air Medical.

The Classic Air Medical crew spotted the man after arriving, but the steep terrain prevented them from reaching him, the sheriff’s office said.

The search and rescue team launched a drone to identify the man’s location and told the DPS helicopter crew. The DPS crew was able to reach the man and hoist him from the cliff.

“Without the helicopters, we might still be working with ropes to get him down off the cliff,” Cheshire said.

The man was airlifted to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Grand Junction, Colo., where he is recovering from a suspected head injury and injuries to his lower extremities that prevented him from using his legs, Cheshire said.
