One way would be to use the Menu Plugin to handle those items, and edit the theme header.thtml to remove the links from it. The Menu Plugin allows you to set access rights for each item in the menu, so you can specify which items regular users will see. The menu would be in a block, typically near the top on the left or right side.

The Menu Plugin is available in the Downloads section on this site.

Note: rather than hard code in the links at the top of the page, some themes header.thtml files use the {menu_elements} place holder, which is defined in lib-common.php). You can remove the unwanted items in lib-common.php.
