SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Jerry Brown will join former Vice President Al Gore and U.S. senators from California and Nevada at the annual Lake Tahoe summit next week. The gathering on the shores of the lake that spans the border of the two states "will examine restoration and sustainability efforts at Lake Tahoe,” according to a release from the office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). Feinstein will speak at the conference. Feinstein is backing legislation to provide federal funding and permission for a number of projects aimed at protecting the lake's famous clarity and protect threatened species in the area.

After the overblown summit, I wonder if the frigid wind from Siberia we've recently had is a renewal of the Cold War? LAWRENCE SITKIN Los Angeles

CARTAGENA, Colombia - As many as a dozen Secret Service agents have been sent home from the Summit of the Americas here this weekend because of allegations of "misconduct," U.S. officials said late Friday. The agents were relieved of duty at the summit and replaced with new agents, according to a Secret Service spokesman. The activities that resulted in the sudden transfer of agents took place prior to President Obama's arrival in Colombia on Friday afternoon, according to sources familiar with the matter.

President Clinton's--jobs, jobs and more jobs--program looks good on paper. But why did he choose Vancouver--instead of Detroit or Seattle--for the summit conference with Yeltsin? What was the underlying symbolism of that move? JIM KENNEDY Frazier Park

The summit should be more than a public relations affair. I disagree with Jeane Kirkpatrick (Opinion, Nov. 3) who thinks it "better" that no formal commitments come from the summit but merely a "good time be had by all." Because an insane wasteful arms race endangers the world's future we must, as citizenry at risk, demand more of substance from the summit process. Success for the participants should be measured by real arms reductions and limitations on the development of new weaponry.

It's funny. You published a lengthy piece about the latest hip-hop discussion group and ignore the trend's creator ("Rap Summit Is Called," April 18). Howard Stern held the original summit; in fact, he conceived it on the air. During a broadcast last month, he had hip-hop and rap artists in the studio and by telephone talking over the issues involved. I'll bet he got down to more bottom-line truths than any of the record company CEOs will. My point, though, is that all anyone really writes about is Howard the shock-jock.

The summit meeting of industrialized nations is now history--if that isn't too dignified a word for it. About all it accomplished was to keep the visiting participants out of mischief in their home countries, but now they must return to their scandals, deficits and broken promises. The strained harmony of the formal sessions did not quite hide the sound of trade knives being sharpened under the table, and the after-hours schoolyard squabbling was ludicrous. British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher chided the French because Napoleon once tried to unify Europe by force--she didn't mention what the British were doing in India at that time.

Re "Poor Turnout for Meeting to Curb Violence," Jan. 31. Thank you for your coverage of Peace Mission '99, the Summit to Stop Violence, but I regret that you focused only on the low attendance. Some of our area's best experts on youth set forth ways to help stop the slaughter and tragic loss of young lives and to have some mercy on the kids. You could have said what really happened at the summit and reached lots of kids who read The Times with a report that at least said, "These people care."
