[sudo-users] disable logging to /var/log/messages

i use a tool called "hddtemp" to monitor my hard disk temperature. if i
want to use hddtemp, i must be logged as root, but i want to run it from
a common user, so i added this line to sudoers:
fctk ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/hddtemp
it works ok. anyway, every time i run "sudo hddtemp -n /dev/hda" i get
this line in /var/log/messages:
Aug 27 17:08:19 thorium sudo: fctk : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/home/fctk ;
USER=root ; COMMAND=/usr/sbin/hddtemp -n /dev/hda
since i execute hddtemp every second (through a system monitor called
"torsmo") /var/log/messages gets filled with thousends of messages like
the previous one.
how can i disable logging (only for hddtemp)?
