Red face [AS2] Time zone from ComboBox?

Hey all,

I'm trying to create a clock that allows the user to select a time zone from a combobox and have the correct time show up on a clock in the next frame. Right now I have this actionscript for the combobox:
ActionScript Code:
stop(); timeZone = myLocation.selectedItem; myLocation.dataProvider = [     {label:"Select a City", data:0},                           {label:"Dallas", data:6},     {label:"Los Angeles", data:8} ]; var oListener:Object = new Object(); oListener.change = function(oEvent:Object):Void{     trace(oEvent.target.value); }; myLocation.addEventListener("change", oListener);

and the code on the clock frame looks like:

ActionScript Code:
time=new Date(); // time object seconds = time.getUTCSeconds() minutes = time.getUTCMinutes() hours = time.getUTCHours() hours = hours +(minutes/60); hours = hours -timeZone; seconds = seconds*6; // calculating seconds minutes = minutes*6; // calculating minutes hours = hours*30; // calculating hours sec._rotation=seconds; // giving rotation property min._rotation=minutes; // giving rotation property hour._rotation=hours; // giving rotation property

But for some reason the clock is not pulling the variable "timeZone" and always shows the hour hand at its default position (12). For example, the data for "Los Angeles" is 8. If I put "8" in the place of "timeZone" it works, but "timeZone" does not. Why??
