Carroll and guest, Mr. Jay Lawrence Friedheim of Admiralty Advocates, talk about the Jones Act, also known as the Merchant Marine Act. Mr. Friedheim tells us maritime, or cabotage, laws date back to ancient times, and talks about why they are needed. Per the Jones Act, ships must be built, owned, manned, and maintained by Americans. The United States controls American shipping,
and that is not going to change. The Jones Act also protects the rights of those working on the boats, similar to how other unions protect their workers.
The laws are good for the contiguous United States, but do not necessarily work for Hawaii and Alaska. Mr. Friedheim tells us there are ways to address the concerns raied by those who wish to change or abolish the Jones Act.
Mr. Friedheim has over 26 years of experience in maritime law. He can be reached at 545-5454, email firstname.lastname@example.org

in dancing and seminars.
On Friday, October 10th, there will be two shows at the Doris Duke Theatre, and the public is invited. Get to know other cultures by seeing the amazing dancers from the mainland, as well as some of our own, local talent. There will even be a male dancer. Then, on Saturday and Sunday, there will be seminars and
shopping at the Blaisdell Center.
The Shimmy Showcase - Essence - will be presented on Friday, October 10, 7 - 8:30 p.m. The second show, "The Unveiling" will take place 9 - 10:30 p.m. and is for adults only. Think outside the box! A cocktail reception will start at 6:00 p.m. Belly Dancing is similar to Hula.
