Gaye Bencini: Hickman County Times Editor keeps going with humor, Facebook and lots of friends

Hickman County Times owner, publisher, editor, writer, photographer, duster in chief Gaye Bencini is a one woman journalism empire. Of course she is too modest to see it that way. Her self effacing humor comes through in her writing. For example, a Facebook apology recently:

"Dear HCHS Class of 2017, I fall to my knees and beg you to make sure all your folks know graduation Friday starts at 7 p.m. Even though it's been announced correctly in the Times for, say, three or four weeks, in this week's edition right over the bar code, a little bigger than a freckle, it says 8 p.m. and that's what your granny will see. If she comes at 8, she will possibly miss you getting your diploma, a once in a lifetime happening, and worse, she will want to stab Mrs. Gaye."
