           Yesterday KMXT told you about the new Alaska driver license and photo identification cards that will begin being issued in June. Amy Erickson is the director of the Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles and said the hope is to deter counterfeiters and protect the identities of Alaskans.
           “According to the Association of American Motor Vehicle Administrators Alaska’s license is the easiest to counterfeit in the nation because ours is currently very unsophisticated.”
           Erickson said the new design includes a number of added security features.
           “I can’t give you all of them because we don’t want to let everyone in on it but there is a ghost photograph of your photo which would be on the license – so two photos on the license. There’s a clear window in the shape of the state of Alaska and a fine line pattern that’s much like you’d see on a dollar bill.”

           Kodiak’s cruise ship season is finally underway. The Silver Shadow pulled up to the city dock this morning. The ship, operated by Silver Seas, is the first to call on Alaska’s Emerald Island this year. Last month the Holland American Line ship Volendam decided to bypass Kodiak on account of bad weather in the Gulf of Alaska. 
           But poor weather was no concern today, and the Silver Shadow’s 382 passengers and crew members will be able to soak up the sun and sights until the ship departs at 6 p.m.
            Discover Kodiak Director Chastity Starrett said the ship is actually relatively small compared to the other eight ships that are scheduled to visit the island over the next few months. She said most of them will average about 1,400 passengers.
            The next ship is due in the day after the Kodiak Crab Festival wraps up – May 27.

           Alaska’s driver license and identification cards are getting a new look next month. The new design is part of a national effort to limit identity theft and make it harder for IDs to be duplicated. Alaska’s new design will include new security features including a ghost image that is difficult to recreate on a fake card.
           The new licenses and IDs will also be administered in a new way. Instead of picking up new cards the same day at a local Division of Motor Vehicles office, residents will be given a temporary card at the DMV and have their new ID or license mailed to them. The temporary ID will be good for 60 days, and the new cards are expected to take between two and four weeks to reach people by mail.
           According to a press release from the Alaska DMV the new administration process is known as central issuance and there are about 26 other states that use this method for administering licenses and IDs.
           The new cards will be available starting in June, but people can wait until their current ID or license expires before they need to get a new one.

           Kodiak is in the running for “Best U.S. Island.” The online competition is hosted by USA Today Travel and pins Alaska’s Emerald Isle against 19 other islands in the U.S.
           Kodiak is the only island featured from the 49th state and has some stiff competition with places like Kauai, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico making the top 20 list.
           That top 20 list was chosen by panel of travel experts from USA Today. They based their selections on criteria like beauty, accessibility, variety of terrain, things to do, wildlife, local culture and popularity. Folks can vote for their favorite U.S. Island until June 2. The winners will be revealed on June 4.
