Greka Names New President and Environmental Plan

This week, Greka announced a new president, Andrew deVegvar, the “Greka Green” facilities improvement plan, and a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the saboteur(s) they believe responsible for their recent rash of oil spills. The improvements call for the removal of out-of-use oil equipment from their properties, the construction of block walls to beef up containment areas near creeks, and heightened security measures.
