GAINES COUNTY - There won't be any booze on sale in Gaines County any time soon.

A petition to get a liquor license proposal on the May ballot didn't happen.

They needed 890 signatures in 60 days, but Seminole's mayor tells NewsWest 9, the petition fell short.

Several church groups petitioned against the license saying allowing alcohol sales would be dangerous for drivers and dangerous for area teens.

Mayor Mixon tells NewsWest 9, they're deciding whether to try again for the November ballot.
