Update Component Problems

I'm trying to add an Update Component using the tutorial given in s2component and component_help, but I keep getting errors in the code. I keep getting errors on the "var int time_difference = -5;" line (I think that's the difference for EST, anyway!). When I tried to remove the line all together, I get an error on the other "var" lines that follow it, as well. What am I forgetting to do???

My code is behind the cut, excluding the asterisks, of course.
