The default JSF date converter always uses UTC. Note that this is 
required by the JSF spec (and earlier versions of MyFaces were not 

March 15 00:00 UTC --> Mar 14 19:00 CDT

If you don't want UTC (and I bet you do not) then try attaching an 
appropriate converter that uses the local timezone; I believe there is 
one in either Tomahawk or the tomahawk sandbox..
