When Justin Farmer graduated from grammar school, his Diegueno Indian aunt Mary Osuna gave him a handwoven basket full of candy. Though it was the candy that caught his eye then, his interests have since shifted sufficiently that he recently paid $3,000 at auction for another of his aunt's baskets.

More than 3,200 Seal Beach citizens opposed to high-rise requested that the Seal Beach City Council cancel the Bixby High Rise Project. When the three pro-developer and pro-Bixby members of the council refused to do so, they forced the election that will be held Tuesday in our city. The pro high-rise front group has already spent more than $50,000 to the citizens group's $800. And there are still two weeks of campaign expenditures to report. Unfortunately, this gigantic sum of money has been spent by the developers on brochures that have conveniently left out some very important facts.

The city of Fullerton will install 25 new stop signs in high-traffic residential areas to discourage commuters from taking shortcuts through them. The move, applauded by several hundred residents during two hearings of the city Transportation and Circulation Commission this week, came after more than nine hours of public comment on traffic problems throughout the city. "We've been begging for this for three or four years," said Judi Wilson, a 9-year resident of Valley View Drive.

The Pechanga Indians of Temecula, who in May paused on the brink of a deal to borrow Native American artifacts from the cash-strapped Southwest Museum in Los Angeles in exchange for up to $1.3 million yearly, have backed away from the bargaining table. The ruptured deal appears to put the Southwest Museum's leaders near square one in their efforts to find a financial angel.

Ancient and ultramodern, monumental and tiny, created in oil, bronze and videotape, an eclectic parade of artworks has joined the collections of Southern California's museums during 1996. Items have arrived singly and in large groups. Some made splashy entrances; others slipped in quietly. A few were acquired for many millions of dollars. Many more were gifts of individual patrons, foundations and support groups.

At least three Orange County cities have expressed interest in becoming home to Los Angeles' Southwest Museum--which is looking for new, larger quarters--but only one appears to be winding up for the pitch. Southwest officials announced earlier this summer that they are seeking to move the 79-year-old repository of American Indian artifacts out of its cramped digs in Mount Washington in northeast L.A. The museum has solicited bids for a new home from about 140 Southern California cities.

Whatever else 1993 might have been, it was clearly a fine year in which to be obsessed. Our Fixations subjects in the past 12 months amounted to one very twisted horn of plenty.
