When I change a portion of a my text to a heading of any number 1,2 or etc I get a line underneath that section of my post.  I heard it probably has to do with my template but cannot figure out how to fix it can anyone shed any light on this for me?

Hi dloj,

It's your theme's CSS file.  Go to the WordPress admin backend, Appearance and then Editor.  Load the Stylesheet into the editor and look for the following:

#main h2 {border-bottom: 1px solid #DDDDDD;     font-size: 1.6em;     line-height: 1.2em;     padding: 4px;}

Just remove the border-bottom part to remove the line.  If it happens on all headers, make sure to find the #main h1 and #main h3 entries as well.

Jason is correct, but if you are having a hard time finding it, here is the entire CSS for your theme:
