Hide and Save the News Item

If you want to simply hide a News Item from being viewed on your website, please use the Permissions controls on the News Edit page and uncheck the "Public can View" box, uncheck the "Active" box, and change the Admin Status Detail to "Inactive".  Then save the News Item with the updated permissions and status and the News will only be visible to Site Superuser.  Here is a screenshot of what the News' status and permissions settings should look like:
