pluggable.php is the WP core functions which can be overridden by a plugin.  Does that site have plugins installed which would be immediately active for some users and not others?

the only plugin that i think is immediately active on the homepage is easing slider.  I am going to put in a question to the tech support there because i have that on 2 sites that have provided similar issues.

the URL in question is www.cornerstoneshiloh.org

Try disabling the slider (replace with a static image) and see if the messages stop?

yeah, anticipated that and tried i with no luck.  

Worst part about it is that i am not duplicating the error on my end so it makes it very difficult to troubleshoot.

Hmm.

It's possible, albeit unlikely, that a firewall or proxy is in play and causing duplicate requests to be made of the WordPress site.  This could result in a "headers already sent" for those users and not others.  Good luck proving it, though.

Doesn't seem to be confined to a specific network at all.  Any ideas why it would show fine for some and not all?

It actually ended up being a much larger issue of malware.  I ended up having to contract a company to clean all of our Wordpress sites on our hosted server.

none of the other comments led to the answer.  We found the problem to be a much bigger problem than originally anticipated.
