Table Bluff Rancheria in Humboldt County. Sounds like a good location for an Indian casino, but I don't think they have one.

El Verano is in Sonoma County, near Boyes Hot Springs. Although I was in Sonoma over the weekend, I didn't happen to pass through El Verano - apparently located a bit off the beaten path in the mountains.

New Cuyama
is a census-designated place in the Cuyama Valley, in Santa Barbara County. It was named after the Chumash Indian word for "clams", most likely due to the millions of petrified prehistoric clamshell fossils that are found in the surrounding area.

Ohm is the name of at least two populated areas in California. I'll go with the Ohm in Stanislaus County, near Vernalis. I suspect an electrical generating station was once there. "Ohm, Ohm, there's no place like Ohm," right Camsue?

Badger is an unincorporated community located in Tulare County. It has a population of 140.

Badger was featured in an early 1970s McDonald's commercial in which a Visalia McDonald's served the entire population of the town for $13. (Badger's population was probably smaller back then.)
