   I would do that in the following way:

ShortLavin <- subset(Lavin, Site %in% c("PP","CC","FH"))

   Of course, you could have done the subsetting within the call to glm:

fit1poisson <- glm(NumUniqOpPt~Seq+Site,family=poisson(link = "log"), data=subset(Lavin, Site %in% c("PP","CC","FH")), offset=log(NumUniqPt))

Minus127 <- subset(ShortLavin, !rownames(ShortLavin) %in% 127)
