Edmonds and G. Scelsa.Fenderella Copyright (c) 1987 Constellation Records KLYMAXX'S "I'D STILL SAY YES" talks about love that lasts. The person in the song af- firms that she would commit herself to her love relationship "over end over again." Because of this ongoing commitment, the couple has become "more than lovers, we're good friends." Few of today's love songs stress commitment Most describe love in terms of desire or feeling. Yet lasting love needs more than the excitement and passion of romance. If a love is to endure over a length of years, the love requires commitment. Commitment is primarily an act of our wills. Feelings may change. Passion can be intense or quiet. However, commitment looks at all aspects of a relationship and is ready to say "'yes over and over again." Commitment becomes real through actions, particularly actions that convey honesty, respect and kindness. Part of honesty is to face all the feelings that one experiences. Even when we love another, we may be disappointed at times, hurt or angry at the person. When we are commited to love another, we also are commited to share these types of feel- ings. Doing so stops resentments from building up. Few things hurt a relationship more than carrying resentments. Respect includes acknowledging and working out ways to handle differences. All of us have a tendency to believe that our way of thinking, feel- ing or doing something is the fight way. In- dividuals who share a love commitment do not berate each other for being different. They develop respect and understanding for these differences. ONGOING LOVE ALSO BRINGS continuing efforts to be kind. Kindness creates a climate where love flourishes. Kindness promotes trust, sensitivity and enjoyment, surely qualities that enhance love. Commitment means saying yes many times to a relationship. Perhaps this commitment is not verbalized daily, but one's actions speak clearly of its presence. Your comments Mways are welcome. Please address to: Chadie Martin, 1278 S.

'Private Eye,' 'My Two Dads' reviewed By TONY ZAZA and HENRY HERX USCC Dept. of Communication NEW YORK (NC) -- "Private Eye," airing Fridays, 9-10 p.m. on NBC, takes too long to deliver more of the same unpleasant mix of crime and punishment. A clone of "Miami Vice," this new series created by Anthony Yerkovich is set against the backdrop of the Los Angeles Sunset Strip during the dawn of rock 'n' roll. It's all style and fashion and lit- fie substance. Michael Woods stars as a former cop inheriting his brother's detective agency. He teams with a streetw/se hustler, appropriately ducktailed Josh Brolin. Their conversations eren't very heady, but they have the appropriate look and callo. As it follows "Miami Vice," the new serias links up to pro- vide a total of two hours of almost non-stop crime melodrama -- enough murder and mayhem to satiate the most fanatic of viewers. up the contrastipg attitudes toward life with th predictable Often tried but never ade- quately portrayed is the concept of single male parenting. "My Two Dads," which airs Sun- days, 7:30-8 p.m. on NBC, has a chance to survive if its two unlikely father images, conser- vative Paul Reiser and liberal Greg Evigan, who only super- ficially represent contrasting lifestyles, can find some mean- ingful dialogue to convey the real problems and joys of rais- ing children. The present formula of the new comedy features Staci Keanan as a 12-year-old who is left, by her mother's will, with the two boyfriends who could have possibly fathered her. The show tries to set a delicate balance between the discoveries of childhood and parenthood. The script, for the most part, does an average job of setting outcome that th,;bright and spirited Nicole (Miss Keanan) will pick and choose the ap- propriate values according to the situation. Admirable in its attempt to deal with a socially relevant op- tion to traditional parenting, they move toward inventive treatment of values-related issues to keep its audience. In a society where values are most often handed down from mother to daughter, this show Obie (Picky Busker) is a sheltered middle class boy who teams up with Scam (Darius McCrary), a street-smart kid, in the adventure comedy from Lorimar Motion Pictures, "Big Shots:" --Copyright (c) 1987 Lorimar Motion Pictures at least has the courage to begin I.00KL00 , $(hnitzt00ank parents will wish to share with ,,, U/-ILH " their children.
