[CentOS] Problem with IPTABLES logging message to the screen/console

I am not sure how to solve this.

I am constantly getting messages that should go into the kern/message log printed on screen - MOSTLY from iptables.
The messages are ALSO logged to the syslog files.

It still prints those message onto the console screen even if I am logged off (security issue).

When logged in on the console its anoying as I constantly have to hit CTRL-L to refresh the screen to get rid of those messages.

However it does NOT happen when I ssh into the machine.

How can I solve this that those messages are NOT printed.
