I am certain I didn't need to reapply those file permissions with my 
earlier version updates. But if this is the expected behavior with each 
update, then that experience was an outlier. I will explore relocating 
my logs to a location not affected by package updates.

Thank you for the information and insight.

I find this somewhat humorous I have recently started using linux. I am 
amazed how often the operating system changes radically, and how short 
the support windows are . . . when compared to the Solaris environment 
we are turning off.

    Do things because you should, not just because you can.
