I found the title! _A Christmas Story_ is actually _Christmas in My 
Heart_ by Catherine Palmer, and was published in 2004. The story was in 
the Buffalo Reflex in 2005!

Several of you suggested that I check a local bookstore. That would be a 
good place to go if we actually had such a thing. I did manage to get a 
response from the newspaper, though, and they came up with the answer 
very quickly.

One person wondered if maybe the city was wrong, since they knew of a 
similar book set in Billings, Montana.

Thanks to all who helped me in my search.
