Disabling the outlines around an object in InDesign

I just started using InDesign and I find the colored outlines (matching the layer color) around every object to be very distracting.  Especially when the object is filigreed. (The first object I brought in was a logo composed mostly of text with no background fill, so that the line follows the edges of each letter making it impossible to properly see the color gradients in the text.

How do I turn that feature off?
