You need to edit your /etc/tripwire/twpol.txt file and run
tripwire --update-policy

Basically, sit down with a copy of the report that your are receiving and
if the file doesn't exist on your system, strip it out of the twpol.txt
Once the policy has been updated, I think I usually run 
tripwire --init to create a database that is synced with the new
policy file.
