If this is recommendable then is there such thing as overdoing it like
getting as much unrelated links but from within same State.
IMHO I really don't think that your ranking will suffer. You may find you are getting into different SERPs. If you have a lot of inbound links then one link shouldn't delute your theme. The locality is another question. Is the site linking to you a site about california or just happens to also be based out of california? I really don't think one link like this will cause a problem as long as most of your links are on theme. I believe theming will be extremely important in the future, but right now its not as important. IMO I would rather have keyword rich link text with high page rank over dead on theme links without the good link text and page rank. The best part of theme links is they will drive their own targeted traffic.
