Businesses point out false claims in candidate’s mailer



“If I don’t get a business in Moore, I still want it to go in Norman,” Lewis said. “The thing we share is county government. It’s not an us-and-them thing. We’re basically a county community. Norman stretches farther than Moore.

“We had a bank robbery the other day, and more Norman police were working it than we were. We share a fire truck from a grant I got. It’s not an us-and-them. That’s reflected in a lot of magazines naming some of the best places to live as Moore and Norman.”

Sunny Side Up moved because of the Robinson Street underpass road project.

Himalayas Aroma of India moved to Moore two years ago after the building the restaurant leased in Norman sold.

“We never had any problem. We moved because they sold the building. That ad by Tom Sherman was written without our permission,” manager Salem Balaji said. “I called the mayor’s office and told her that.”

Iron Starr Barbecue was on Campus Corner at 575 S. University, Suite 110, where Blackbird Gastropub is now located. Blackbird opened in April 2011.

The Physicians Surgical Center moved to Moore last spring when a new, state-of-the-art surgical facility was completed. The owners are a group of physicians who maintain the Orthopedic Sports Medicine Clinic in Norman. This group of doctors has a network of clinics in the region, including Weatherford, Mustang, Pauls Valley and Purcell.
