Rachel Ristau, who turns 17 this month, has found a way to help others cope with what she went through. She is creating a “memory garden” outside the Fayetteville Senior Center. The garden is designed to help people who’ve lost a loved one commemorate and remember that person. She’s doing it in honor of her dad, Michael Ristau, who died of liver cancer.

Several companies have donated in-kind services to her garden, including Dalpos Architects, Hueber-Breuer Construction Co. and O’Brien & Gere. She’s also received about $200 in donations.

Investing sweat and elbow grease: Wilson Building comeback

Andy Breuer, a volunteer with Adapt CNY, helps in 2006 to clean up the Wilson Building.

Dozens of supporters helped out, weekend after weekend. “It was the kind of energy we wanted to tap into,” said Andy Breuer, a principal in Adapt CNY, a not-for-profit corporation that grew out of 40 Below. The early enthusiasm was followed by years of frustration: The economy tanked and little changed, although Breuer said officials at City Hall remained patient with the group.
