```Hey,
I'd like to modify my document (Document Class -- article) so that
the 'References' heading appearing at the beginning of my bibliography section
shows up bold with the same font size as the main text (Roman: Times Roman: 12
pt).  Any thoughts?

This can be done, but may not be as easy as it seems, since the heading, in an article, is set with a \section* command, and the formatting for \section* is just the same as that for \section. You probably don't want to reformat all the section headings this way, which is what using the titlesec package to reformat the headings in the preamble would do.

However, you may be able to use the same sorts of commands in ERT right before you do the bibliography. I'm not sure.
