Thanks Mattias for the information about the error and
the link to the AppleDev page.
I could now use some direction about what needs to be
done to get things fixed. I have checked the scanner
to make sure it works, checked the USB cable. I have
uninstalled and reinstalled both the SANE, Twain
interface, and the needed libraries. I have
Uninstalled  the Epson Scanner Utilities and
reinstalled. I have tried both applications installed.
I still get the same errors. 
I am at a loss also, as to why for weeks there were no
issues. Nothing had change on the system. The system
is in a controlled enviroment.
Thanks again for your help.

Here is a snippet of the log:
