Doesn't the error command also stop the execution of the script?
Use print instead if you just want to echo out something that is happening in the script.

Use the MGlobal class from OpenMaya. You can display info, warnings and errors to the Command Line without interrupting your code execution:

import maya.OpenMaya as om

om.MGlobal.displayInfo("your text here")
om.MGlobal.displayWarning("your warning here")  # Yellow background
om.MGlobal.displayError("your error here")  # Red background

You can use standard python logger configured for console output. See python logging library for more details.
