[R] Formatting Sweave in R-News

I am editing a document for submission to the R-news newsletter, and
in my article my Sweave code inserts a dynamically generated PDF
report that my R program generates.

However, when I insert the PDF using the following Sweave code:


(in tex this looks like):

However, the r-news style package over-rides everything that I can set
(including using the minipage option) to make my included PDF small
sized. Part of the problem is that the R-news style specifies a
two-column formatting, and so the PDF is shrunk to fit in one column.
How can I, for just one page, over-ride the styles to include the PDF?
Even if I hard-hack the graphics to be scaled up in size, that does
not get rid of the vertical line that in between the two columns, and
thus breaking my image.

I realise that this is not an R problem, but more a latex problem, but
I am hoping that somebody has faced similar problems with the Rnews
styles and has an idea on how to do this.

Thank you,

Yours sincerely,
