Django Run [task] throwing errors

I created a sample project to go through the standard Django Polls tutorial (  After adjusting my settings file (pointed to a MySQL database and adjusted the timezone) I attempted to:

Tools >> Run Task >> syncdb

When doing so I get the attached error (see screen cap).  Any thoughts on why this is happening and how to resolve?  Any time I try to run other tasks like "startapp" I get the same issue.

I'm running PyCharm 3.0.1 on Mac OSX 10.9 (Mavericks).

If I go to a terminal window and do the same from the command line (using the same virtual environment the command runs without issue).

Thanks for any assistance you can provide!

I've verified that these are correct relative to the file system.
