After A Closer Look, Wilson's Mills Turns Down Beer Sales

Posted June 8, 2001 9:44 a.m. EDT

— So much for buying beer in Wilson's Mills. Johnston County elections officials canvassed votes from Tuesday's referendum on beer and wine sales, and in each instance, the two issues picked up a single "no" vote.

The previous countshowed wine sales losing but beer sales winning.

In the revised count, voters rejected wine sales 65-to-64, and split 66-66 on beer sales. The additional no vote means the beer sales issue is defeated as well.

The town can not consider another vote on beer and wine sales for three years.
