Dr. Harold Goldstein, executive director and founder of the Davis-based California Center for Public Health Advocacy, received the California Department of Public Health’s highest honor at a ceremony in Sacramento on April 5 for his statewide leadership in addressing the childhood obesity epidemic.

The 2012 Beverlee A. Myers Award for Excellence in Public Health recognizes Goldstein and the center’s successes, which include landmark legislation removing sodas and junk food from all K-12 California public school campuses, the first funding for physical education in the state budget and making California the first state in the nation to pass restaurant menu labeling.

Established in 1993 in honor of the late Beverlee A. Myers, this award is presented annually to an individual who has exhibited outstanding leadership and accomplishments to improve public health in California.

The California Center for Public Health Advocacy is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to improving the health of Californians. To learn more, visit www.publichealthadvocacy.org

Deborah Schrimmer, a graduating senior at UC Davis and a transportation planning intern for the city of Davis, has big plans for the summer.

Following graduation, she will embark on a 3,700-mile cross-country bike trip with the nonprofit Bike & Build, which raises money and awareness for affordable housing.

On days she isn’t biking, Schrimmer will volunteerg in local communities and do construction with affordable housing organizations.

Her route will take her from New Hampshire to Vancouver, British Columbia: from the hills of New England, to the shores of four Great Lakes, across the plains of the Midwest, and finally up over the Cascade Mountains.

Schrimmer says she’s excited to ride with Bike & Build because it incorporates her passions for social justice, the built environment and biking.

Apollo Olive Oil from Oregon House, Calif., won the Patty Bogle-Roncoroni Best of the Best Award at the 2012 California Olive Oil Competition at the Yolo County Fairgrounds.

This award is chosen from the conventional and organic Best of Show winners.

Located in Oregon House in Yuba County, Apollo Olive Oil was established in 1998 as a small local business run by friends. In 2001, Gianni and Diana Stefanini took over the ownership and it is now run by the Stefanini family.

Production started in 2001, with full retail distribution in 2002. Their pride is in producing flavorful and healthy olive oils in the finest tradition. They tend their trees with organic, sustainable methods, harvest by hand at optimum ripeness and exercise great care in milling and blending, a news release said.

One of their orchards was planted in 1878 by a man who moved to California from Boston. His 3,000-tree orchard was abandoned for many years, but the Stefaninis now have 900 of the original trees in production. This orchard is the oldest commercially productive olive orchard in California.

Apollo Olive Oils are among the few in California that are certified extra virgin as well as certified organic. They are raw, unadulterated and 100 percent cold-pressed on the vacuum mill designed in Tuscany to preserve the highest levels of flavor, nutrients and anti-oxidants, the news release said.

Apollo Olive Oil has received many awards in the United States as well as internationally. It was selected as the top olive oil produced outside of Europe by Der Feinschmecker Magazine in 2006; one of the top 10 olive oil producers in the world by l Mastri Oleari; was awarded Best of Show and Best of Class at the Los Angeles International Olive Oil Competition in 2008 and 2010; and won gold medals in 2011 and 2012 at the Yolo County Fair Competition.
