Inc. (BMI)/ Walt Disney Music Company (ASCAP) Elton John found great musical success with Disney's "The Lion King." All-4-One hopes for the same in the new Disney effort, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Off the soundtrack comes the group's current chart hit, "Someday:" The song reflects humankind's desire that life be different. Supposedly this will happen when we are wiser and the world is older. The person in the song prays, "God speed this bright millennium on its way." Thisis a prayer that all of us can bring to God. Indeed, we can ask God to guide our human family toward such a bright millennium. But just as sig- nificant is what we can do right now to help such a world evolve. I have written before about the power and op- portunity teens possess to make an impact on our world. Age makes little difference when it comes to bringing "someday" into the present moment. In this it is important to be focused. Think of the world in terms of your family, your high school, your parish, your friends, your community. For ex- September 6, 1 eptembe I I ii--C Re ample, none of us, no matter what our age, knows how to eradicate world hunger. Yet any teen with the help of a parish youth group or religious educa- tion class could contact the local food bank and plan to sponsor a food drive. Furthermore, few of us can do anything about all the world's armed conflicts. Yet each of us can see if we are genuinely at peace with ourselves and then extend this peace to those we live with. Young adults 18 and older have a powerful voice iri working toward this bright millennium. They can vote! Unfortunately, the youngest voting age group exercises this right the least. In this election year, don't pass up your responsibility to vote. Even if you are too young to vote you can find out more about our world's most pressing concerns. You can talk with others about building a better world. Understanding based on knowledge, prayer, action: This is a recipe for making "someday" a time that arrives sooner. May our God guide each of us to do our part. (Your comments are always welcome.

Di- rector Arthur Hiller's witless chase movie frequently stalls out, thanks to its tired, lowest- common-denominator brand of humor. Indulgent treatment of kidnapping and theft, brief toi- let humor and some comically in- tended violence and mayhem. The USCC classification is A-III adults. The MPAA rating is PG  parental guidance sug- gested. "Solo" (Triumph) Secretly developed by the U.S. military, a warrior android (Marie Van Peebles) goes AWOL in a Central American jungle where it aids peasants fighting off murderous guerrillas while dodging a team of military ex- terminators. Director Norberto Barba's male power fantasy is little more than a vanity vehicle for the muscular Van Peebles. i CARRIAGE INN FAMILY RESTAURANT PARTIES SERVED FAMILY STYLE 1-800-293-2559 ii Intermittent violence, fleeting nudity and occasional profanity. The USCC classification is A-III -- adults. The MPAA rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappropriate for chil- dren under 13. "She's the One" (Fox Searchlight) Talky domestic comedy in which two Irish Catholic broth- ers face marital breakups when the younger, fiercely competitive brother (Mike McGlone) begins cheating on his wife with the for- mer fiancee of his newly married brother (Ed Burns). As written and directed by Burns, the lightweight story explores issues of commitment vs. selfishness with airy charm, but scant sub- stance. Adult theme of infidelity, numerous sexual references and frequent rough language and profanity. The USCC classifica- tion is A-III -- adults. The CHICKEN STEAKS SEAFOOD .

'q'he Trigger Effect" (Gra- mercy) Grim tale of an increasingly desperate husband (Kyle MacLachlan), wife (Elisabeth Shue); baby and family friend (Dermot Mulroney) who, fearing for their safety during a pro- longed, widespread power fail- ure and subsequent looting, take to the road where they en- counter more danger. Writer-di- rector David Koepp's thriller is an atmospheric but overly murky story of ordinary driven to lawlessness by fears.
