Offering patrons a sip of the past, Old Time Soda Company Owner Charles Rushing enjoys locating vintage sodas and novelty candies from all over the world. A former school principal with 20 years in the Booneville City School System, the Corinth resident also loves to see the reactions of others, especially children who venture into his shop. “I love to meet new people and see the looks on their faces as they sample our ranch dressing, grass, dirt and other uniquely flavored sodas,” he said. A graduate of Freed-Hardeman University, the 53-year-old Kossuth “Aggie” is member of Greater Life United Pentecostal Church in Corinth.
