  6. Ira Briggs is a character. A mile-a-minute talker with a fascination for the past, Ira’s been collecting bits and pieces of local history for just about his entire life. Ira grew up on the fringes of the Hemlock Fairgrounds, a veritable paradise for an adventurous boy. His father Larry had an auto repair/welding business which thrived on the trade generated by the famed Demolition Derby.

    Those experiences sparked Ira’s interest in anything with wheels—from machinery to motorcycles, antique cars to Atterbury Trucks.

    Larry also drilled wells and taught his son the trade.

    His mother, Dorothy, passed on her gift of gab and love of yard sale collectibles. Ira recalls the day decades ago when, at her urging they rescued the 100 year-old dilapidated wooden Hemlock Fair ticket booth from destruction. Today it resides at Ira’s “Hemlock House,” spruced up with a fresh coat of paint and a fancy sign.

    School did not come easy for Ira, but he later gained an appreciation for reading. He recalls his father giving him the Readers’ Digest and a copy of Sea Biscuit to help pass the time while drilling a well.

    Ira later enrolled in a Creative Writing course at MCC. His professor, Maria Kendig, inspired him to write two articles for the Livonia Gazette about his experiences with the movie making industry.

    In October of 2016, Ira published a book, True Stories and Tall Tales. If you are interested in purchasing a copy of Ira's book, click here, and you will be taken to Amazon.com, where you can purchase it for $14.95 plus shipping. The book is 92 pages and comes in paperback.
