Only users with the "admin" role will see the links to the
administration area, so no worries.

Permissions are fine-grained and can be based on user role and content
type; moderation can also be used if desired (i.e., an anonymous user
submits an article, it goes into a queue and it is published only
after revision by a trusted member). Long story short, pretty much any
desired scenario can be achieved. This can be discussed (perhaps on a
separate thread?) at a later date, though. Right now I am trying to
get the looks right. :)

This coming weekend or early next week I will have something online
for everyone to play with.

Although at this point in time I do not know with certainty which
modules I will be using, I do expect to end up using multiple modules
in addition to Drupal core, so this requirement may become a real
