What am I doing wrong??
Add this to /etc/sudoers (using visudo)

username        ALL=NOPASSWD: /sbin/service privoxy restart

Substitute the name of the user that you want to give this permission
to for "username" in the above line.

Now he/she can simply type "/sbin/service privoxy restart" at a
commandline (or you can even hang it on an icon) and restart privoxy.
Correction, he/she MUST type "sudo /sbin/service privoxy restart".

	With that, I get :

[tslg 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
Apr 08 18:55:24.929 Privoxy(b7fd56c0) Info: Program name: /usr/sbin/
privoxy
                                                           [  OK  ]
[tslg Hbsk2 ~]$

	Looks likely right to me; is it?

Sure does.
