    The last issue of the Accident Reconstruction Journal for 2019 is out. #174 should have arrived at email inboxes already for all current members. If you get the hardcopy, too (which is a separate subscription arranged through Victor Craig, the publisher) it should be arriving soon. We've ordered 810 copies so far, so membership is on the rebound, after years in the doldrums. I'm pretty excited about that. This issue has Victor's Subject Index in it, while the index I am assembling is still in the Reference Library, in Excel. I've added the AIQ listings from Victor's index to mine, and will work on adding full titles and authors for them as time permits. Enjoy! Peace. -W

    In hopes of expanding our audience to more youthful folks who hang out on other platforms besides facebook, I've started an Instagram page here: https://www.instagram.com/napars1/ I'm still trying to figure out how to use that to best advantage. Maybe I should recruit a 20-something to help? Wish me luck. Peace. -Wade, admin.

    I'm building the mailing list for the May/June ARJ now. It should be out in just over a week or so. If your membership lapsed after 5/15/2019, and you haven't renewed yet, you're not on that guest list. You can always log in to check your status, or ping me (admin@napars.org) with any questions. Renewal is easy - either online or with an old-fashioned check. We can accommodate either!

    Peace. -W
