98% or 106% depending on attachement CPU usage for dashboard? This can't be right. Please help.

That is right. Some widgets use lots of memory and/or CPU cycles, even when not active.

What do you need the clock widget for?
Anyway, you can remove one widget, then check Activity Monitor to see, if it is the culprit. If it is not, remove the other and repeat.
And if they aren't the culprits, you can add them back.
