You can add the Power Control widget to the home screen to control those functions. Open the app drawer, find the Power Control widget, long press and drag it to the home screen.

There are also many widgets in the market that offer expanded functionality when compared to the stock widget.

The widgets you ask for are on the notifications menu on my Galaxy Stratosphere. However, it is possible that this is part of a carrier-provided (Verizon) modification. For me, it is easily accessible, but out of the way, preventing accidental changes.
