Hi Randy,
looks like you're typesetting with pdflatex, which is good in general  
but makes EPS graphics unusable. Since you have AI, all you have to  
do is export the picture as PDF and include that pdf file in your  
latex document, not the EPS file.
(You could also switch the latex engine, but I wouldn't recommend  
that unless you have a specific need).
