Friday's article suggested that the "old glory days" is what Astoria, loggers and the Port of Astoria wants ("Port faces uproar in snub to tenants," The Daily Astorian, April 9). Folks, this is basic economics. Short-term gain, revenue and the port being used and jobs for people.

Are we so closed-minded that the tenants don't want to see revenue being brought in and the port being used? Instead, we want undeveloped properties that are not being developed?

The idea has somehow been lost and that is Astoria was built with logs. Timber built the homes and the fishing boats.

If there is the smallest chance to bring "logs" here by all means, why not? The logging facility will bring energy, vibrancy and a spirit of hope back into Clatsop County.

To Bornstein Seafoods, I say: Get yourself a tenant group and hire yourself an attorney. I say put your money where your mouth is, and develop your property. If not, share and let the logs come in.
