You didn't say what OS you are on but it looks like Snow Leopard. Anyway try Ctrl-Click/right click on the files -> there should be an option to remove from sidebar (or something similar I am on Lion and they might have changed the nomenclature)

Or, command click and drag them off the sidebar. They'll be removed.
