I'm attaching an image that shows a line in my Writer document that I can't eliminate. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this?

There's nothing mysterious, but it's impossible to be sure of what you have here just from a picture of it.

First, go to File | Page Preview or click the Page Preview button in the Standard toolbar. You should see that the line doesn't appear in the printed document. In other words, what you are seeing is an indication of some structure in your document, not document content itself.

What you have is almost certainly not a line, but instead a box containing those twelve empty paragraphs; three of its sides just happen to coincide with the page text boundaries. The box will be a section, a single-cell table, or (less likely) a frame (in the latter two cases with no borders). It is impossible to tell which you have just from a picture of the screen display. The help text will tell you how to remove these.

To remove a section:
o Go to Format | Sections... | Remove.

To remove a table:
o Go to Table | Delete > | Table.

To remove a frame:
o Click the edge of the frame - so that you see the eight coloured handles.
o Press Delete or Backspace.

Removing a section preserves its contents. In the other two cases, if the entity contains text that you wish to keep, you will need to cut or copy that text and paste it outside the entity before deleting it.

I trust this helps.
