Why is logo transparent

The orange navigation bar is supposed to be transparent but the logo is supposed to be solid.  When you zoom in and scroll, you can see the blue part of the logo is transparent.  Client doesn't want that.  I tried adding opacity 1 to the logo but that didn't help.  Any ideas?

.img_gei_logo { /*topleft logo over nav bar */
	left: -48px; 
	top:-85px;
	position:absolute;   /*needed to position logo.  also change sidebar 1 to position:relative;   */
	z-index:999;
	opacity:1; /* eliminates transparentcy   */

}

Remove the opacity from .sidebar1 and add this

.sidebar1 div {
    opacity: 0.8;
}


If a container has the opacity set to less than 1 you cannot reset the opacity on a child element

I added this to css but it didn't fix problem  Any other ideas?  Do I need to modify the html?  I never worked with opacity before.

I removed it from .sidebar1 and then I added the following per your suggestion.  

.sidebar1 div {
      opacity:0.9;}

I uploaded the gei.css page again and now it took.  Maybe it was a cache issue.  Please confirm you want me to keep the following.

.sidebar1 div {
      opacity:0.9;}

I'd reduce it 0.8 to be the same opacity (opacity is not as see through because you are applying to an element directly) but otherwise it looks fine
