Angry Gnome Clock Applet

For some reason my gnome clock applet (gnome 2) is using UTC instead of EDT. Because of this my time is 4 hours ahead. I have UTC unchecked in the Clock applet preferences b/ for some reason it still uses it. The only way to fix it is to set my system time back 4 hours b/ then this screws up my ntp update and all other clocks which read the time correctly. I tried aliasing "date -u" to "date" b/ that last ditch effort was futile.
