You can't miss it... It's all over the news. A United Arab Emirate company called Dubai Ports World may very well take over operations at six major U.S. ports. While none of them are in North Carolina, you can't help but wonder if we're next. Right now, port terminals like Morehead City and the inland ones are owned and operated by the state. State officials say this takeover by Dubai Ports World will have no effect locally. They even go as far to say that the concern may be unwarranted.
