MARQUETTE — Another successful Lake States Logging Congress has come and left Marquette, but the event won’t soon be forgotten. Thousands of people viewed about $100 million worth of logging equipment during the three-day event at Lakeview Arena, the second time in five years that the Timber Producers Association of Michigan and Wisconsin picked Marquette as the site for the logging congress. More than 220 exhibitors demonstrated what’s new in the logging industry and participated in a variety of competitions.

MARQUETTE — Appointment of Attorney Edward A. Quinnell, Marquette, as assistant prosecuting attorney for Marquette was announced Sept. 11 by Prosecuting Attorney George E. Hill. The prosecutor was authorized by the Marquette County Board of Supervisors to hire a second assistant because of the increase in the amount of work by his office. Attorney Aaron Lowenstein, Negaunee, serves as assistant prosecutor for Ishpeming and Negaunee. Quinnell was born April 27, 1933, in Marquette and graduated from Graveraet High School in 1950, being first in scholastic standing. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 1954, going through the law school there on an accelerated program, and obtained an LL.B. degree in 1956. Quinnell was municipal judge for the city of East Ann Arbor during his last two years in law school. He is presently in partnership with his father, George C. Quinnell, in the firm Quinnell & Quinell.
