Deputy City Manager Sue Williams, the highest-ranking woman staffer at San Diego City Hall, announced Monday that she will resign Sept. 6. The 42-year-old Williams, who calls herself "a risk-taker," said she had not found another job. Rather, after 21 years in city government--working her way up from a personnel trainee to her $64,000-a-year post--Williams said she is now "looking for new challenges and something that will keep me from hitting the burnout level."

The nonprofit organization that safeguards Julia Child's legacy has a beef with culinary retail giant Williams-Sonoma, according to a lawsuit filed last week in Santa Barbara County Superior Court. The chain has been illegally using Child's name and picture in online promotional materials -- which isn't kosher, especially in light of the iconic chef's long-standing policy against shilling for products or companies, according to the complaint. "As almost any Julia fan can tell you that this was the policy during her lifetime," said Todd Schulkin, spokesman for the Montecito-based Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts.

It's taken Sue Williams a long time to recognize herself as an artist. That slow awakening is the central subject of her largely autobiographical work about domestic violence. The subject of an exhibition on view at Regen Projects through April 20, Williams' work has generated lots of glowing press over the past few years, and her simple line drawings paired with darkly humorous captions were included in the last two Whitney Biennials.
