Caption: Message received: Phil Smith, 59, of Spokane, holds a Valentine’s Day card he picked up from the bench at the corner of Main Avenue and Washington Street on Monday. An unknown person placed the cards and hearts at the same site where a backpack bomb was left on Jan. 17 before the start of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Unity March. Smith, who lives nearby, said he witnessed the emergency response to the explosive device from his apartment.
