is there a method for allowing (besides root) local users (ordinary
users sitting at the keyboard of the computer) the ability to use the
shutdown command? i dont want those logged in via ssh or other remote
method having this capability.

If you're running gdm, set SystemMenu=true in /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf and you get a "System" menu on the gdm login screen with a shutdown option.

I don't know if xdm or kdm have this feature.
