	Well, as root, I tried using ]# nano -w sudoers to add one line.

# %users  localhost=/sbin/shutdown -h now

tslg        ALL=NOPASSWD: /sbin/service privoxy restart

	Now, as she, I get :

[tslg at Hbsk2 ~]$ sudo /sbin/service privoxy restart
Stopping privoxy:                                          [  OK  ]
Starting privoxy: Apr 08 18:55:24.929 Privoxy(b7fd56c0) Info: Privoxy 
version 3.0.10

                                                           [  OK  ]
[tslg at Hbsk2 ~]$

	Which looks to me like it did it. Right?
