    I don't know how newsworthy it is, but Scatman Crothers was born in the town I'm from, Terre haute, IN and has now become a charter member of the local Walk of Fame. Here's the snippet from the newspaper article and the link to the full article:

    Terre Haute News, Terre Haute, Indiana- TribStar.com - First seven inducted into ‘Local Legends’ Walk of Fame

    Benjamin Sherman “Scatman” Crothers was born at 1470 S. 13th St. in 1910, and would begin singing in speakeasies, developing his music into the “scat” form of the day and entertaining legendary gangster Al Capone himself. The “Scatman” already has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work in “Meet Me At The Fair,” “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest,” “Twilight Zone The Movie,” “The Shining,” and “Bronco Billy,” among other films. His voice work included Disney’s “The Aristocats” and he appeared on television in “Charlie’s Angels,” “Bewitched,” “Sanford and Son,” “Chico and the Man,” “Dragnet” and “Magnum P.I.” Crothers was also the voice of the Autobot “Jazz” on the 1980s cartoon series “Transformers,” he sang with Bob Dylan and produced numerous albums before his death in 1986.

    He deserves this great honor.

    Now, let's hope that Peter Cullen or Frank Welker get one as well.
